A long weekend in Rome was my wife's birthday present. I booked the Majestic through Thomas Cook and the only downside was that I ordered a shuttle from the Airport to the Majestic as part of the booking. The firm operating the shuttle was awful and it took ages to get a shuttle to the hotel - I will book a car next time.
The Majestic is an imposing historical building on the Via Vittorio Veneto. It is about a 10 minute walk to the Trevi fountain and the Spansih Steps. Hop on hop off open deck tour buses stop very close to the hotel.
There are many restaurants nearby. Turn left out of the hotel and you will find the Hard Rock Cafe Rome with Harry's Bar slightly further along. Turn right and there are quite a few restaurants with pavement seating (do not go to the restaurant with a yellow sign at the end of the road as the food is terrible, unless you like getting your meal in installements and cold, and highly priced with the most dreadful service - it was called something like Labiata).
Interior of the hotel was very 19th Century (in a good way). Service was very efficient although the restaurant staff could do with smiling a bit!
The bedroom we were given was small and was a disappointment coupled with the fact that when you opened the window there was no view as we were underground despite being on the first floor (I think the building must be on a hill!).
Breakfast is served on a terrace with enjoyable views. If you want any eggs apart from scrambled then you have to pay extra - boiled was 8 euros, fried 10 euros, and omlettes up to 16 euros extra.
Minibar in room is not too expensive - for soft drinks anyway.
The Majestic is a good base if you are going to Rome to see the sights - try to get a room on the second floor or above if you want a view!
