We stayed here for four nights in November and it was wonderful. The decor is a gorgeous mix of modern and some classic elements (like the paintings on the headboard). The service was very five star and it is just next to the Vatican. The rest of the sites are a five minute taxi ride or thirty minute walk. The only thing that is true from the negative reviews is the high price for food, drinks, spa etc but what can you do? It's rome and its a five star hotel.... We just had coffee in the morning and drinks one night and the rest of the meals ate out. Make sure to hang out in the beautiful spa (included in the price) and ask for a room with a BATH while booking! Not all rooms in the same category have the same layout. Our first room had a big closet and small shower and we switched to a room with no closet space but a huge bath and shower area. I would stay here again if I go back to rome and would not even bother trying another hotel.
