This hotel is definitely not corporate. It has an identity of its own, and a rustic and elegant charm.
So you cannot compare. It is central to Piazza del Popolo and The Spanish steps, you can easily walk to The Vatican (we are in our 60,'s) and see many churches and sights on the way. As well as all the lovely shops. However staff are always on hand to call you a cab if you prefer, and there are plenty of them! Public transport buses and underground, close by.
However it is not on a busy street. Sort of tucked away. Plenty of eateries, even takeaway if you prefer. Wifi is free! Parking nort. But forget the car.
There are 5 floors, rooms are not huge, have high ceilings and shuttered windows.The walls are decorated in fabric, helps with the sound proofing and very elegant. Adequately furnished with old furniture, however there is plenty of drawer space, and hanging space and it is immaculately clean, even inside the drawers. Beds large and firm, sheets, pillows, towels clean and fresh. Bathroom had a bath and great shower, however difficult to control the spray sometimes and we did make a bit of a watery mess on the floor, (well one of us did) but learned to control that.
Breakfast, included, continental, but was a lovely experience in a small area off the bar, Prosecco with fresh juices, if you want to kick start your day, but the coffee was equally as good, and they know how to make tea. Cereal, fresh rolls, lots of fresh fruit , boiled eggs, cold cuts and cheese, pastries, and cakes. You will not be hungry.
Staff are wonderfully polite, and professional, and nothing is a problem, just ask!
It is worth visiting this hotel just for a ride in the amazing lift! Go up to the Terrace for a great view of the city, have a drink, you will like it!
