We loved this hotel and cannot understand some of the negative feedback. The location just off the Piazza Navona is within easy walking distance of all the major sites. The hotel has lots of character. Do upgrade if possible as the standard rooms can be on the small side although they are still adequate. Lovely views of St Peters from the rooftop terrace.
Choice for breakfast was fairly limited but the quality and service was good. For us this was preferable to waiting for the local cafes to open as we like an early start to avoid crowds at the main sites. We also ate at the hotel’s rooftop restaurant and thought the service and food were excellent. Our only complaint was that the hotel failed to inform us that on that particular night the best tables (with views of St Peters) were reserved for a private party. The Concierge made some good recommendations for some smaller local restaurants serving traditional cuisine. Our favourite was L’Angoletto. We would definitely stay again.
