First off, I had booked this hotel for our son's honeymoon pre-cruise stay for several days in 2012, because the cruise line used it as their offered accommodation in Rome. When they returned, they just couldn't say enough about this place. So when my wife and I decided to spend three weeks about the NCL Jade doing Italy, the Adriatic ports and Greek Islands, I booked the Visconti Palace again.
My wife and I typically book suites, and at the Visconti, there are two large balcony suites on the seventh floor. When we arrived, we were welcomed as old friends, and taken immediately to our suite. When we arrived, we were greeted with a lovely fruit bowl, and a chilled white wine and handwritten welcome letter from the hotel manager. There were two large chairs, a full size couch, flat screen, internet connection, mini bar etc. The room was modern, with a sliding door out to the balcony which ran the full length of the suite. There were two additional access doors to the balcony off the bathroom door and in the bedroom. The balcony looking on to various other balconies in the neighborhood as well as church domes and the roof lounge which offered drinks, and a limited menu.
The bath room offered a full size tub, a separate shower with overhead as well as a handheld head, there was a toilet and the obligatory bidet. The room itself was huge and the sink and counter was large enough for a family.
The bed was, in my opinion a Queen with comfortable bedding and pillows we had no difficulty sleeping in this bed. There was a huge amount of storage, one full wall consisted of a full wall of built in hanging closets and a dressing area with hair dryer. A flat screen was also available.
The morning breakfast was fabulous, however while we were there, the kitchen was undergoing renovation so lunch and dinner was very limited.
The hotel is about a 10 minute walk to the Castel San Angelo, and 20 minutes to the Vatican Museum. The Roman Forum would be around a 30 minute easy walk. There was a grocery store within four blocks of the hotel and even an American steakhouse right in the neighborhood.
I paid roughly 1000 Euros for three nights, 4/30- 5/3 2014, and for me, it was well worth the money.
