The previous positive reviews are pretty accurate in my opinion.
The property is a beautiful former villa, located in a quiet Diplomatic area of Rome.
In addition to the points made earlier about proximity to the sights of Rome, it's worth pointing out that the hotel is directly on the tram route, where you can buy a 75 minute travel ticket for 1 euro.
There are also some local bars, cafes, restaurants and shops within less that 10 minutes stroll. We ate at one of these and had a lovely evening.
The hotels restaurant "Baby" was superb. We had a package which included dinner. We both opted for the tasting menu, which was marvellous.
Wine was reasonably priced, but cocktails appeared less so.
We found that we were able to make a deal with the cab driver when returning to FCO airport, for 50 Euros, which works out the same as a cab to the Termini and then 2 tickets for the train. A cab all the way, was far more comfortable.
Good communication from the front desk regarding our lost luggage and a late check out was no problem.
Thoroughly enjoyable stay with a definate intention to return.
