We stayed in room 102 for 8 nights in May 2013. We were immediately hit by the amazing location of the hotel, it is literally a 2 minute walk to the Colosseum and directly opposite the Roman Forum.
As we entered the hotel we were given a very warm welcome from the manager, Fabio. The room wasn't ready yet (it was only 11am) so we happily left our luggage in the office and went for a quick walk around the area. We returned an hour later and the room was ready.
The room itself was small but perfectly adequate. The bed had a memory foam mattress which was firm but very comfortable. The bathroom was recently renovated and modern. The windows were extremely soundproof and we couldn't hear any noise even in our front facing room.
The shower did soak the floor the first time but strategically placed towels minimised the problem! There were 3 large bath towels, one thick hand towel and 4 smaller towels which were all replaced daily. We could not get the air conditioning to work but did not feel the need to complain at reception as we did not mind but we are sure a quick call to the friendly receptionist would have resolved the problem. We experienced a few issues with our door as it did not always automatically lock itself and needed to be closed two or three times before it locked.There is a digital safe in the room so we were very happy to leave our belongings there.
Breakfast is served on the rooftop of the adjoining Hotel Richmond which was a short walk from our room through a corridor to a lift which was found by following just a few arrows.We only ate breakfast here three times as it was the same selection every morning (ham, salad, bread, cereal and pastries) and we wanted to taste a variety of Italian breakfast in different cafés around the city.
On two occasions we enjoyed a bottle of wine in the courtyard.The white wines ranged from €12 to €16 and were served with a huge plate of crisps, nuts and pretzels.We spent a few enjoyable hours in the beautiful courtyard with it's cool water feature.
Check out was swift and hassle free.The receptionist rang a taxi which arrived in three minutes and took us to the airport (Ciampino) in 25 minutes and cost €30 euro which is the set charge.
Overall, our experience was very positive and any small problems were easily forgotten in this beautiful city!
Please note: City tax is payable on departure and costs €3 per person per night.
