The owners of the hotel Fabrizio and Linda were very friendly and accommodating so if great service is what you are looking for you can't go past Beau Site!
My husband and I stayed here in November, and it was our last stop after staying in other 4 star boutique hotels across Rome and Italy in our trip. While we found the staff to be very nice and the location great, the hotel fell short in our expectations in terms of overall comfort.
The walls were paper thin, we could hear conversations that were being had at the front desk and in the room next door. The street outside was quite noisy too. While the room was clean, the furnishings were pretty drab and gaudy and the walls in need of a coat of paint. The bathroom was very nice and the water pressure good, but we didn't have hot water on our last morning there.
As other reviewers have mentioned the location is great, right near the Spanish Steps and close to the Metro Stops. The restaurants around are fairly pricey and the quality isn't great and the staff warned us about that which was appreciated.
While the breakfast spread was adequate, it was pretty skimpy and had the least variety of all breakfasts we had on our trip. We stuck to the cereal, yogurt and fruit as you had to pay for eggs and the basket of two stale bread rolls and a few slices of bread and a plate with two tiny pieces of baked tart wasn't very appealing. The staff would bring coffee and croissants on request which were pretty good. We also had an espresso machine in our room which was a nice touch, but alas you had to pay 1.50 for a coffee which was odd to me - I guess that's taking the mini bar concept to a new level!
Definitely an A for effort for the staff, but not the 4 star comfort we were expecting.
