It's small boutique hotel at the 4th floor of a regular building. The location is not touristic, but it's still very convenient to get around. It's close to Vatican and St. Angel's Citadel.
The area itself is not very special, nor unpleasant. Just a regular neighborhood with a lot of business buildings. On the other hand, you can find here a lot of good restaurants and cafes for locals. This is so important in Rome, to eat at a place for locals. Via Cola di Rienzo, the local major shopping street is very close.
They really worked hard to be "Design" hotel. It looks very nice. BUT, it's over-designed as well. Some stuff just is not convenient to use. The room has no closet, for example. We had to keep our clothes in the trolleys.
The bed, however, is gorgeous. What a great sleep. It's very quiet.
The breakfast is overage for Italy, as far as I understand. However we expected for more. One who ate breakfast in Berlin, London, Prague or anywhere in Israel, should not expect the same level. On the other hand, I asked for an omelet (to cooked specially for me), instead of usually offered scrambled eggs with ham, and I got it in two minutes. Yes, it's common in every other place on the Earth, but not in Italy.
The staff is highly friendly. On our last day, we came back to the hotel afternoon to pick up the luggage (after we had checked out in the morning), and were offered cappuccino and desert. It was very nice.
Do not order black cab (transfer to the airport) in the hotel. Their prices are significantly high.
