Tired as we were of overpriced hotels with tiny rooms and dubious air conditioners that - no matter how noisy - could not mask the noisy streets outside, on this trip to Rome we selected the Lord Byron, and could not have made a better choice. With the Borghese grounds separating us from the Piazza Populo and other tourist haunts, this delightful quiet hotel is 20 quiet minutes' walk from the bustling heart of the City.
Our Superior Room, although not large, was more than adequate, was very nicely appointed and warmed with interesting art-deco designs. And so quiet!
The hotel staff were friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. On our first day my wife defeated any risk of jet lag by sleeping in until 11:00 a.m., well past the closing of the breakfast room. No worries. The bar steward provided her with coffee and rolls in the bar once she surfaced! The staff gave us good suggesrtions for local dining, and I would particularly recommend the Ristaurante Ambasciata d'Abruz, a short 10-minute walk from the hotel.
Our only "hiccup" on the stay was that we arranged for pick-up by hotel car on our arrivgal at the airport. When a car finally arrived thanks to some persistent calling by a helpful competitor, the driver had difficulty finding the hotel despite our providing address and general direction. If the first step of the visit was thus not perfect, I hasten to add that everything thereafter was.
