My girlfriend kindly treated me to a trip to Rome for my birthday. We arrived in January and after an awful journey from the airport to the City centre (due to road closures caused by non stop rain for over 13 hours!!) we were greeted by a lovely friendly lady who we found out was the owners mother.
Her English wasn't great but her warmth and smile and general willingness meant we understood everything and she checked us in to our lovely room efficiently.
The rooms wont provide the ultimate wow factor as some of the art-decor hotels might but they were clean and had everything needed for great City break away. Bathroom was well equipped with a good shower, incredibly clean and the room itself was a decent size with a bed that was much needed after all the walking we did!
It's based in a more residential neighbourhood but this is no bad thing, it adds a little calmness to your day when you've been wandering around busy attractions and beautiful streets of the historical centre of Rome.
It takes not long at all to walk to the Spanish Steps (5 minutes) and the Trevi Fountain is around a 15-20 minute stroll. Rome is made for walking with how stunning it is so get moving!
We met the owner who was often there in the evening always saying hello and asking after us, a very friendly man who clearly takes great pride in his hotel. He also allowed us to leave our luggage there on the last day so we could continue exploring.
Breakfast was lovely with coffee/juice and some croissants provided along with a few other little snacks. Bearing in mind breakfast isn't huge in Italy this is all that is needed and what's provided is of good quality.
I don't know the cost as it was a gift but it appears great value for money and if I return to Rome (which I hopefully will - with it being sunnier next time!!) I would have no hesitations about staying here. Perfect hotel for a trip to this stunning place.
