Wonderful location. Tucked away a couple of streets from the Colosseum, with all the bustle of Ancient Rome, yet this quaint little hotel manages to provide everything you need in a warm and welcoming environment, with the added benefit of peace and quiet where you need it most.
Even before our arrival, Mrs Khan, her daughter and the team were very helpful with arrangements. Upon arrival the welcome is warm and friendly, respectful of privacy yet offering the feeling that nothing is any trouble.
Rooms are simple, well appointed, nicely styled and clean. Very comfortable large bed and good pillows, all help rest those aching limbs after a full day of Rome's cobbled streets. Ours was on the 6th floor, with views of the Colloseum and St Peter's in the distance - albeit a slightly cluttered view over adjacent roof tops. Still, nicer than seeing nothing of any significance.
Breakfast is a decent continental affair. Missing a little variety and the odd boiled egg, but generally it's a good start to the day. The round tables are a nice way to interact, something we Brits aren't always accustomed to but it certainly adds a little flavour to the proceedings.
We were provided with complimentary drinks to help celebrate my partner's birthday. A very nice and welcome gesture.
All in all, I would say the fantastic location, warm welcome, good rooms and relatively affordable pricing (for Rome) - make this hotel a definite shortlister. If you prefer a hotel to provide the simple things simply, and leave you to enjoy the vast array of delights that the city offers for the most part, then you would do well to find a better offer.
