“Great Location”
Reviewed 12 February 2014

Within the city center and walking distance to the go-to sites-- Pantheon, Trevi, Colosseum. I did sense upon check-in that they cater more to Business travelers than tourists. Maybe it was because I just previously stayed at a boutique hotel in Florence where they were so much friendlier. No one was rude, just a little more "matter- of fact" My room had very a nice view of Rome with the St. Peters in the distance. You definitely felt safe outside as you are right next door to Parliament and there is plenty of polizia. Breakfast was lovely. Anything you could want (meats, cheeses, breads, pastries) and the waitstaff were very helpful. Would recommend to anyone.

this hotel has a good location with a view over the parliament and within walking distance of many monuments, there was a great Gelato place behind it which was really good and a lot of restaurant around.

We came here for a weekend break and have been very happy with this hotel. The central location could not be better, next door to the parliament. The room was nice and not at all like the generic euro hotels you seem to find so much these days.
The public areas have genuine antique furniture befitting of the overall decor, giving the place a charm of it's own.
Breakfast is continental but good. The staff are the smartest dressed most polite and helpful bunch you could wish for.
Lovely place!

We stayed here for 8 days at the end of November 2013 and couldn't have been happier. Our 2nd floor Standard Double room overlooking the Piazza was not huge but very adequate, clean and well appointed. Appeared to be nicely remodeled with a huge bathroom and the best shower I've stood under in Europe. Noise was not really a factor as it is a pedestrian zone and the ubiquitous political malcontents protesting the Senate did so at reasonable hours. Quite civilized, actually, for Italian politics!

The front staff were always friendly and helpful regarding inquiries and reservations. The waitstaff, bartenders and bellboys were equally amicable and greetings and service were always hospitable. The breakfast was, in my opinion, sumptuous for Europe. Served in a large yet never full quiet dining area, breakfast consisted of a vast offering of pastries, juices, meats, cheeses, eggs, breads and fruits - it kept my wife and I going all day long on our sightseeing ventures. Highly recommended. Get a room with breakfast included, without a doubt.

All of old Rome is in a relatively small area and with this location, everything (including the Colosseum and The Vatican) is within walking distance if you are physically able. Super little streets (as well as main arteries such as Via del Corso) and piazzas filled with high-end shops and restaurants of every stripe dot the vicinity. Both the Pantheon and Trevi Fountain are but mere minutes away. Piazza Colonna with its famous column is just next door and an ancient Egyptian obelisk stands guard over your rooms. A most appealing part of Rome and very safe.

For the price and compared to other European capital cities such as London or Paris, this is truly a bargain both pricewise and for the perfect central location. We never heard or saw any complaining about dingy rooms or inadequate breakfasts so that must be a thing of the past. All was in top-notch form for a 4 Star hotel. We recommend it highly!

P.S. Trivia: Marlon Brando and Jean Paul Sartre were guests here. You can also check out the Hotel Nazionale via a DVD of "National Lampoon's European Vacation" - the Griswolds stayed here and the interior lobbies and exterior are featured in the 1985 film. If this was good enough for them, it was certainly good enough for me...!

Been there during my honeymoon trip. I considered the positioning very convenient and the pricing affordable. The result turned positive to me.
Hotel has excellent position, rooms were proper and clean and stuff very helpful. Additionally, breakfast was good and wifi free for an hour daily.
I think I will return there when in Rome.

In the heart of Rome, silent area at night, delux rooms are nice and sizable, but standard rooms can be very very small. Furniture shows its old age. Carpets on the corridors or rooms can be dirty. Staff is professional and helpful. Breakfast is decent, more sweet items than anything else. Parking in a nearby location costs 41 Euros a night. Good place for city holiday, close to great sights, restaurants and shopping.

Stayed at this hotel for 4 nights back in March for our 1st anniversary, From the minute we arrived it was lovely, Check in was great - We were lucky enough to have a lovely view onto the parliament building that is in the square were the hotel is located, Moments after arriving we were delivered a bottle of champagne (either from the hotel or the tour operator citalia who we booked through, Lovely touch!)

Room was lovely, small yes but adequate as you are in Rome to see the sites not to sit in your room and complain about it!!

Breakfast was very good also, Everything you could possibly want, cereal, breads of all kinds, Fresh fruit, cheeses and meats. oh and the sweet things!! wow!

5-10 Minutes walk from the trevi fountain and the pantheon. 20-30 minutes walk to the colosseum, but lovely walk , Vatican was about a 40 minute walk but there are lots more to see on the way. We walked to all the main sites in Rome. only used a taxi to the station to get the bus to the airport.

Would highly recommend this hotel as I do being a travel agent. Can't wait to go back to Rome and ill definitely stay here again.
