My wife and I arrived Sunday afternoon, having taken the train in from Citavecchia. It was too early to check-in, so off we went. That afternoon, we saw the Colisseum, Forum, Trevi fountain, Spanish Steps, Pantheon, and a myriad of churches and ruins not even on our map. The location is what this hotel has to offer, and as we were only staying two nights on our first trip to Rome (cruise ship), we needed to see as much as we could, as easily as we could. For that purpose, we were happy we chose the Hotel de Rome. I don't think I'd have been happy if we'd stayed longer. Other than a room, the hotel has very little else to offer. If a guest wants food, a drink, a cup of coffee, or minor sundries, out the door he'll go. There are plenty of restaurants in the area, a very cool pub around the corner, and a few more blocks walking will get you to shopping. The two issues we had a real problem with are the foul odor coming from the plumbing, and the HARDEST bed we have ever slept on. That bed was a crippler! Previous reviews had mentioned these problems, but I had hoped they would have been corrected months ago. Nope. Because of the odor from the bathroom, we had to keep the windows open the entire time we were in the room, but when we went out we had to lock-up, and back came the smell! My wife and I are Southern Californians, and have been spoiled by big sunny hotel rooms, in big sunny hotels. From what I could see, most of the hotels in Rome were similar boutique style hotels, so I really wasn't disappointed. Minibars would go a long ways...
