We Arrived in late September and checked-out in early October 2007. We were also referred to this hotel as a second choice by our travel office and was very satisfied with the accomodations and location.

Though there was a mix up by our agent in reserving the room on the first night, Isa Hotel staff immediately provided alternative lodging for that night that provided an opportunity to compare comparable "three star accomodations".

After conferring with other travelers while in Rome, we concluded that the Isa was a great find due to:
- Location. Just steps away from the Vatican, St. Peter's Basilica and main shopping areas. Also down the street from a friendly Trattoria serving great food.
- Size of the room. We had room 310 and noted the bathroom was about more than twice the size of the other hotel from the first night.
- Breakfast buffet. A fully staffed outdoor/indoor roof top dining area with a clear view of St. Peter's Dome.
- Near public transportation. Major bus stop at the end of the road and within walking distance to the Metro.
- Friendly staff. Seem that most of the staff spoke English and were helpful in providing basic directions and recommendations.

I will definitely stay here again and quickly refer this hotel to others.

We stayed at Isa Hotel from Sept. 20-23. Overall it was a good stay, but not great. We arrived about 7:00 pm. First, the lift was very small, and there is no help in handling the bags from the front desk to the room. Second, the room they put us in was a tiny room with a hall as the sleeping area. There were two beds butted end to end, separated by a counter top (or stationary night stand).

I had emailed the hotel before and asked them for a nice room, since we were celebrating our 25th anniversary. Needless to say, this arrangement did not suit the request or what we paid for. I went to the front desk and told them of the room problem. They said they were sorry, but they were full and they would move us the next day, to a room with a king bed. They offered no compensation or anything else for our inconvience, other than a "sorry".

They did move us the next day, but the room was only a little bigger and the "king bed" was two beds pushed together. The small balcony looked into the inside of the building, which was nothing more than four walls and windows.

The hotel was in a good location, about a 10 minute walk to the Vatican and 10 minutes to Pizza Navona.

The breakfast area is nicely done and the breakfast was better than most of the breakfasts offered in other hotels that we stayed at in Europe (does not compare to the full breakfast buffets offered in other non-European countries). The eggs were only warm at best and they were runny most of the time.

As I stated before, good stay, but not great.

My husband and I recently spent four nights at the Hotel Isa and we would definitely be back.
The location was great - a five minute walk from the Lepanto Metro station and ten minute walk from the Vatican.
The breakfast terrace is simply beautiful with a choice of seating inside and out and views of St Peter's dome.
The food is wonderful...and plentiful. There's a never ending supply of fresh orange juice and cappucinos all served up by cheerful members of staff. The breakfasts here kept us going ALL day.
My only word of caution...make sure you're not given rooms 100 or 101. They're the only two rooms on the first floor and are small and dingy. We were given room 100 our first night and we asked to be moved the following morning. In addition to being small...one of the bedside lamps was broken and the shower was a lukewarm dribble.
The hotel is being renovated so hopefully these rooms will be upgraded in the not too distant future.
The second room was wonderful.

We stayed for two nights and were very pleased with the hotel, situated within walking distance from the Vatican. Our room on the 5th floor was large and had a little terrace overlooking the road, very nice to sit there in the sun in the late afternoon and watch the scene below. The bathroom was clean and spacious, although more hot air came from the split flex on the hairdryer than out of the nozzle! The breakfast terrace had wonderful views of central Rome.

We could have done without the late-night noise from the wedding party going on in the breakfast terrace area on the 6th floor, followed by the chairs and tables being dragged back into position by the staff after the last noisy guests had shouted their way out of the hotel, but hey. It stopped eventually.

Worst bit: not being able to get anything to eat and drink at all in the hotel after breakfast hours.

There were two very stylish lounges in the hotel, recently refurbished and all done in black and white. Hidden away in the back of one of them is a superb cloakroom. Check it out.

Overall it was a very pleasant stay.

The hotel is in a great location within walking distance to many sights. The lobby is in beautiful condition and the breakfast terrace is beautiful. The rooms are nice, a little small. Make sure to ask for a room not on the street side because it might be loud. Really a great value for Rome and was a great experience.
