I regularly stay in Rome and recently, on a family holiday, I chanced upon the hotel Lunetta. And what a lucky chance. This is ,quite simply , a superb hotel. Located in an old building, the Lunetta has been completely and elegantly refurbished to an extremely high standard whilst maintaining its original charm. In the basement, it is possible to see the remains of the Theatre of Pompey. In fact the staff were more than happy to give us a conducted tour of the remains of the the theatre, the spa and the gorgeous roof terrace, which affords views over the nearby rooftops and the church of S.Andrea della Valle.
The rooms are comfortable and, for central Rome, spacious and the bathrooms a bigger than some rooms that I have stayed in downtown. There is a full range of toiletries and bedroom slippers and dressing gowns.
The breakfast room is very small, so you might have to wait, but the breakfast choice is first class and the staff were very accommodating with requests for dairy free products. The staff in general were helpful, gracious and friendly and nothing seemed to be too much trouble for them.
Location wise, it would be hard to do better. The Lunetta is a few steps from Campo DEI Fiori, about 400 metres from Piazza Navona and from there walking distance to all the treasures of Rome. If walking to the Vatican (20 mins) or Colosseum (35 mins) is too much, there is a constant bus service from the Corso Vittorio EMMANUELE just beside the hotel.
All in all, quite the best hotel that I have stayed in in Rome , and believe me, I have stayed in many!
