We have just returned from a long weekend in Rome and really enjoyed the Mario de' Fiori 37. It is tucked up a narrow back street and exudes charm. All the staff members we met were very helpful and spoke very good English (much better than my Italian). They were happy to recommend dining options - and we struck gold on night 2 with Babette.
We had room 106 which I believe is described as a loft suite? I must confess that it was much more rustic than I had expected from the website photographs and not as slick as I had thought - but it was lovely in a different way and we were extremely comfortable there. The room has an interesting pitched wood ceiling and a micro-balcony overlooking perhaps the least picturesque but most atsmospheric internal courtyard.
The best bit about the hotel is the location. It is bang smack in the middle of so many of the iconic Roman sights and sites. Within easy walking distance of the Spanish steps, the Trevi fountain and the Piazza del Popolo, we actually walked much further afield and found the Colloseum, the Parthanon, the Forum and the Vatican all comfortably within easy reach on foot.
Both mornings we ordered breakfast to the room which arrived exactly on time. There was a good selection and plenty to eat.
There are lots of great bars and restaurants nearby - we particularly liked the fancy cocktail bar in the swanky Hotel Russie about 5 minutes away up Via Babuino.
