This was a new, modern hotel in the heart of ancient Roma. It is a block away from Campo Fiori and about a 15 minute walk from both the Colosseum and the Vatican. It is also near great local restaurants for dinners out.
Our room was on the small side but what you would expect in a city hotel and the bed was a full king. We were in the "deluxe" room, which was 1 level up from their cheapest rooms, so I'm not sure what they would be like, although I think the "deluxe" of our room was being on the top floor with a vaulted ceiling, so I imagine the regular rooms were similar, without those 2 features. Everything was very clean and new. The bathroom was huge. Breakfast was fresh and delicious- yogurts, cereal, pastries, bread, cheese, coffee, tea and juice. The staff was accommodating and happy to give tips on dinner reservations. They do also arrange tours. Our package included free use of the hot tub and sauna, which was in the basement- check out the pictures on the website, the basement is actually the ruins of the ancient Pompeii theater. You have to schedule a time to use the facilities, which is nice because you get the hot tub to yourself rather than sharing with others. They also have massages and other services. The roof top bar area is also nice, although as we were there in November it was not in full operation but the weather was nice enough to bring back our afternoon gelato and hang out for a little while.
I would definitely return to this hotel and highly recommend it to active couples who want to see most of Rome by walking, which is who most of the guests were. There were also 1 or 2 families there. It is a small, unique, excellent boutique hotel that gives you the cultural feeling of being in Italy without taking away the comforts of home.
