We have returned yesterday from our first trip to Rome. We booked the Dei Consoli through secret escapes and received great communication from the hotel from day one, they also delivered on every promise, including upgrading our room.
I guess your experience of this hotel may differ based on your expectation. We wanted to enjoy Rome at its best and as such we looked for a hotel with character and charm and could not have chosen a better place to stay. I cannot comment on English TV as we would not have expected this in Italy and it did not get switched on with so much to do.
Our room was beautiful with large windows opening on to the streets, lovely shutters, gilt mirrors and a Jacuzzi. Please do not expect sterile, shiny new rooms, the rooms are in keeping with a beautiful old building and only add to the whole experience.
The staff at this hotel are worthy of 5 stars! The reception team are efficient, warm and friendly and go out of their way to meet every need. Daniele in the roof terrace bar is excellent, his service and helpful, friendly manner made our first night. Daniele even drew us a map as a quick guide to help us find all the different places we wanted to visit. We used this route everyday and quickly found our way around. we never used the bus or metro once during our stay and enjoyed the walks to each place taking in the beautiful streets.
Breakfast was more than adequate to start your day a huge selection of pastries, cakes, continental, scrambled eggs, bacon, juices and fresh fruit. We had fresh oranges everyday and found them to be delicious.
If you want to do something different there is an excellent local live music bar round the corner on the next street called Fonclea, we were made to feel very welcome, the bar was very busy, great atmosphere and Marco was excellent and made sure we were looked after at the bar.
We jumped on to the SIT bus shuttle from the airport which drops you in the Vatican city, a 5 minute walk from the hotel and really easy to find. it was 6 euros each way and drop off and pick up is in the same place. Due to the great location, if you like walking you can reach everywhere on foot. We found we this to be great and helped walk off the great food.
We cannot wait to return to Rome and would have no hesitation in staying at this hotel.
