Trip Advisor, you've done it again! We stayed at this little beauty because of it's ranking on trip advisor and we were not at all disappointed, Francesco and his team have put together an excellent experience for the traveller to Rome.
Let's start with location, from certain rooms you can see the Pantheon, it is not more than 100 meters away. Piazza Navona is about a 5 minute walk one direction and the Trevi fountain about 5 minutes the other direction. It seems that many of Romes important buildings e.g. Embassies and the like, are near by so there is always a high level of police presence which just adds to the overall safety of the area. We also walked to the Vatican which was a longer walk but well worth it as you get to see and hear many of the everyday sights, sounds and smells of Rome.
Our room, 1797 looked out on the beautiful Piazza Maddalena, you'll see from our photos that this was the first thing we saw each day. The bed was one of the most comfortable we had in nearly 5 weeks of traveling, and the bathroom was beautifully appointed and had the most wonderful rain shower. The mini bar was complimentary which is definitely a novelty. Breakfast was the standard European fare, in a very small room, although there are only 6 guest rooms so there isn't a need for it to be too big I guess.
When we next return to Rome I would definitely stay here, I would recommend it to my friends and my family, it is without doubt a wonderful hotel in a beautiful setting.
