Never stayed anywhere quite like this. Built into a five century-old fountain connected to the Roman aqueduct. Third-story room with no elevator. (Mr. Otis wasn't around in the 16th Century, unfortunately.) Thought we would die dragging our luggage up the stone stairway but the manager helped and gave me a beer when I reached the top so all was forgiven.
We stayed in the "Swanky Cardinal" suite and it was amazing: bright red wallpaper (like a Cardinal's robes) with 15 foot ceilings and a nice little balcony over the street. It had a very modern bathroom with a two-step sunken bathtub with a rain shower coupled with a hand-held spray and about a hundred twinkly lights overhead. There ain't no Marriott or Hyatt anywhere anything near this place!
Absolutely loved the place! The only negative is the fact that the office is only open about seven hours a day. If you need people to contact you off-hours when no one is there to answer the main phone line; you're out of luck. Otherwise, I wouldn't hesitate to stay here every time I was fortunate to visit Eternal Rome.
