This small hotel is authentically Italian with an old elevator & room furnishings as evidence. Our air conditioned room had a small balcony & complimentary wi-fi which was an unexpected treat. There's a bright breakfast room with offerings of the usual fruits, cheeses, cereals, & pastries. A roof garden is right outside with tables for those wishing to have a view of Roman rooftops. There are several restaurants on the street & a bus line, as well. The hotel is located right around the corner from the Piazza Navona, a favorite of tourists. We were there on Palm Sunday & I don't recommend going on a holiday. It was too crowded to enjoy the space & the famous Bernini sculpture, Fountain of the Four Rivers in the center which is topped by an obelisk. As the hotel had no restaurant, we had dinner in a small trattoria across the street every evening &, although it wasn't gourmet food, it was quite adequate & the service was charming. My husband was especially fond of the antipasto.
