Staff is really friendly. Decoration is marvelous. Rooms are cozy&modern. Very nice breakfast. Stable wifi connection. 5 mins by foot to the metro station and easy to get to the main sights by bus as well.

A great choice of hotel. Convenient location particularly for the Vatican city. Lovely to sit at breakfast looking out at St. Peters. Good value in every way and Willy in charge of the roof terrace is a gem! We had Room 411 which is on an internal courtyard so no noise problems at all. Travelled in to Rome on the Airport train - what a rip off - you could walk faster! Luckily spotted the stop for the Shuttlebus round the corner from the hotel so came back on that for half the price. It also drops you at the door of Terminal 3.
We would certainly recommend the hotel to friends and family.

My wife and I stayed at the Isa Hotel for a short honeymoon in Rome. When booking the room, I remarked this reason for our visit and requested a room on as high a level in the building as possible, if possible.

Of course, we could not expect special treatment. And we did not get it either. We got a room on the 2nd floor with a balcony to the backyard. That was fine, even though we had hoped for a better location of the room.

But it was disappointing that we had to wait 20 minutes for the receptionist to find our reservation, which apparently had been lost, despite that fact that it was made on the hotel website itself and prepaid.

The room was furnished with high quality materials and parquet floor instead of carpet. Nice!

But it was disappointing that the room was so small. It was definitely more suited for a single room. And it may really have been what it was intended for, since there was only one set of towels and one drinking glass in the room.

The bathroom was in fact so small that there was no space next to the sink for one’s toiletry bag. This was very annoying. Also it made no sense that there was a bidet, as it was placed against the wall to the side and therefore practically useless. It was only in the way. Also, the shower cabin was not sufficiently shielded, which resulted in water splashing all over the place. Finally, while the bathroom was very elegantly decorated with marble and mirrors, it was less than elegant that the water did not drain quickly enough from the shower bottom. Thus one would be standing in 5-7 cm (2-3 inches) of dirty water during showering.

On the positive side, the hotel is newly renovated and perfectly clean. There is a nice rooftop terrace and breakfast area with a view of St. Peter’s Basilica. Breakfast is very good and includes a fine Prosecco among the beverages.

Be aware that even if you prepaid the room you will still be charged a city tax of EUR 3 per person per night. I think it would have been more reasonable to inform clearly about this tax and to charge it in the first place (at booking).

CONCLUSION: Our stay could have been perfect, but was less than so due to the small size of the room and lack of attention to various details, which all in all detracted from the good experience.

Thrilled with this central and stylish hotel... we had a spacious standard room with everything you need at a good price.

Best was the breakfast buffet where you could have cooked, continental or cake breakfast, with on-tap Prosecco and a rooftop view of the Vatican. Magnificent.

Spent 3 nights at the hotel. Convenient location to get around the city. The Vatican is about 15-20 minutes walking distance. Several restaurants to explore in the neighbourhood. Clean rooms with a nice rooftop terrace. Only con is that the cleaners made away with some of our toiletries :-).

Spent a couple of days at the hotel and have to say I was impressed. The staff are genuinely helpful and their airport car service at 40Euros was a bonus as it worked out cheaper than two of us getting the train etc!
The hotel is perfect for a trip to the Vatican, and the breakfast room with views of St Peter's is fantastic. Staff are knowledgeable and the WiFi does actually work unlike so many hotels! Would have liked a coffee making facility in the room but that is the only fault I could find.
It is a little gem of a hotel and if you are looking for a good well designed modern looking hotel in Rome, you couldn't do better.
Thanks to the staff for all their help and handy tips! Especially Elena
