During two weeks with family and friends in Tuscany decided we needed a one night stay in Rome just to say we'd been there - and to make sure it was someplace to which to return. (It absolutely is.)
This hotel could not be in a better location. Located down a small alley off of Piazza Navona you are 15 minutes walk away from everything - the Vatican, Pantheon, Trevi Fountain, etc. The coliseum was 30 minutes or a quickie in a cab. The reception staff could not be nicer sitting you down with a beverage on arrival, holding luggage if needed, showing you surroundings on a map and even held our car in front of the hotel for 24 hours. HUGE!
We booked the Richard Meier room and it was very nice. A good size by Italian standards, it is definitely not a suite. It is, however, much more modern than the standard rooms with a beautiful TV, amazing bed, marble bathroom, electric window coverings, etc. The breakfast is phenomenal and, in fact, ranks as one of the best buffets we've had in Europe - which is saying something.
I can't say anything bad except that we should have stayed longer. If you need lots of space, get a suite. If you are fine with a comfortable room big enough for two folks, luggage and a love seat, you'll be fine in a Richard Meier. Whatever you choose you will be so happy to see Rome from this terrific, friendly hotel. Ciao and grazie.
