This was a wonderful hotel. We were greeted by friendly staff, and shown to our room on the third floor with a private terrace. The room was small but terribly so. Very clean. The bathroom was also very clean. The bed was comfortable, it seemed like a foam top and it was two twin mattresses pushed together but both my husband and I slept well. The location is fantastic, close to the train station (but not so close that you can hear it) and close to many attractions. We are in fairly good shape and chose to walk everywhere-even to the Vatican which is 2 1/2 miles away. The hotel will provide you with a map but we did use the wifi in the room to look at walking routs before we left. The breakfast is very good and offers a nice variety, breakfast staff is friendly but they do not speak very much English-breakfast is pretty self sufficient so we did not have any problems. The rooms on the third floor with the private terraces do have have a bit more noise in the mornings as breakfast is just down the hall-again not a big deal. The shared terrace is open for breakfast as well-I would not pay extra for a room with a private terrace as we did not use ours much, and during our 3 days here we did not see anyone on the shared terrace so we would have been fine using that as well. Overall, this is a fantastic hotel I would stay here again and I would highly recommend it. If you want great food and amazing gelato walk down the street behind the hotel there are quite a few nice places that are reasonably priced. We found the best restaurants by wandering off the main streets and trying places where people were not standing outside begging us to come in. We tried the restaurant that the hotel recommended-I can't remember the name but they gave us the business card-Stella something and we were un-impressed. Just walk down a side street look at the menu and see how busy they are-remember though most Italians don't eat until 8 or 9 so a great place could be quite earlier.
