We stayed in The Moses Fountain in mid November and it was BRILLIANT! If you have been waiting to book stopped procrastinating and get on this small 6 room hotel NOW!!
It was my first time to Rome and the hotel, location, room and most importantly the brother and sister owners Emmanuela and Andrea made this a wonderful experience. Close to Termini the main station I was a little hesitant but the area is great – excellent access to Trevi (the fountain itself and the nearby awesome San Crispino Gelato only 5 minutes away).
As other reviewers mention owners Emmanuela and Andrea double as meet and greeters and together with a couple of tireless maids create a great experience. On arrival Emmanuela gave us some great leads on local restaurants and not one disappointed (actually one did – it happened to be closed when we went back a second time it was that good!). This was the Rome we were after eating with Italians in trattorias off the tourist trails. Emmanuela even helped me track down some AS Roma tickets (if you are at all a football fan and in town on Sunday the experience is a must!).
We had the Golden Sixtus room, with some downside being adjacent to the breakfast preparation area (a closet it perhaps a better description) but despite some noise in the morning it was after we were already on the go and was no problem. The breakfasts themselves were a good start to the day basic but worthwhile and of course include and each room has an in room Nespresso machine for your caffeine hit FOC whenever you need it!
On top of this free Wi Fi and limited free mini bar made this hotel a double thumbs up. It is an old building (of course the Fountain itself is part of it) so the noise internally can carry but we were never bothered by the noise from other guests despite the obviously thin walls.
I was also lucky enough to have a tour of the huge area being renovated behind the fountain with Andrea, this in itself was a great insight to what is behind the dozens of fountains you see all around Rome.
Being intrepid we also walked from Termini – this is relatively easy (no dramas on route), just evaluate how many bags you have. Depsite the wheels on each bag the Roman cobblestones ensure you get a work out for the 10-15min walk.
We will be back!!
