I looked long and hard for a hotel that would fulfil my usual criteria of interesting, local and affordable. Lucky House ticked all three with a great emphasis on the characterful. My boyfriend and I went to Rome for 4 nights and found it to be a really good base, it's not central but everything is within walking distance if you are happy to walk around, the 'centre' of Rome, near the Pantheon and Piazza Navone etc is about 20-30 mins walk away depending on pace, and walking in Rome is never boring or short on views so we generally walked everywhere.
The room we had was a lovely size with ensuite and was called the Trevi Fountain room (each room is named after a Rome sight), it had a comfortable double bed, plenty of storage, a balcony and a flatscreen tv with occasional English language programmes on. The reason I picked this hotel over all others was the style of the rooms, tasteful and good quality furniture very 'Room with a View' and if you're into a nice looking room I really recommend Lucky House. A lot of the budget hitels have that slightly Travelodgey feel about them with mdf beds built into the wall, bare walls and horrible orange sheets, this hotel had so much more character. The breakfast is self-service which is fine, plenty of coffee, tea, milk and jam, we just bought croissants (or cornettos as they're called in Italy) when we were out and ate them with tea and coffee on the balcony. I think we probably had the best room there, others were evidently a little smaller and not all with en-suite but for around £35 a night we were more than pleased, an absolutely bargain.
The only downsides are there is a shared hairdryer and considerate people would place it back in the kitchen for everyone to use but these crazy couple next door, aside from making the most hilarious animal noises, also pilfered the hairdryer for the entire stay which was a bit of a mare, so either bring your own or go knocking on doors. The other downside is it is hard to find, it's high up on the 4th floor of what looks like a gated apartment block with a green gate, we were wandering around for a good 10 minutes but once we'd called Quogol (the resident handyman) was there to greet us. The difficulty to find and the hairdryer situation are my only complaints. Nice people, nice place, lovely room, great views from the balcony, highly recommended.
