Have just returned from the lovely city of Rome. This hotel looked good on the internet, and did not disappoint. On checking in, we were led out of the hotel and down the street 20 yards to an attatched apartment block. Our initial uncertainty was removed on being taken to a very well appointed room. The street below was busy and had a freindly atmosphere enjoyed through our open windows. The facilities in our room met all our needs, and more.
Breakfast is taken in the rooftop garden restaurant, where you can choose to dine in or out. The breakfast fare was continental, and whilst not to my taste it was included in the price and started the day well. Freindly staff made our stay an enjoyable one.
The location of the hotel is excellent, with fairly short liesurely walks to the Coliseum, Forum and Palatine. The hotel bar was fairly expensive, but it is easy to find a reasonably priced bar or restaurant close by.
We prebooked the Vatican tour, which included a 3 hour guided tour. Our tour guide was very knowedgeable, but personally I would have liked to have browsed at my own speed and take in the information written on the boards and guide book. It did, however save a long queue.
We spent a lovely time in a lovely city with great freinds. The hotel and city are both a first class choice for a break. We will hopefully return to both.
Airports-shuttle.com was a good choice to get in and out of the city. For only 40 euros each way we were taken straight to the hotel for a similar cost to the rail option.
