We chose to stay in the Hotel Farnese based upon previous Tripadvisor reviews and other research. It was our honeymoon so we did want something a little special. We were not disappointed. Prior to our arrival I was in touch with Andrea, one of the front office staff, who organised our airport transfers and a bottle of chilled Prosecco when we checked in. Our room was ready when we first arrived, and was just the job. We were on the fourth floor, just by the lift - I feared it might be noisy, particularly since said lift had a video on loop that had Andrea Bochelli warbling his best at all hours - but far from it. Our room was spacious, clean and well-appointed with a bedroom, lounge and well-equipped bathroom. The beds were twin, pushed together and made up into a double, but that is a minor detail. The hotel has no bar or restaurant as such, but it does have a very pleasant rooftop terrace for breakfast. It can be opened up or sealed from the elements and provides a good view out over the rooftops of Rome, including the dome of St Peters in the near distance. The Hotel Farnese is just a few yards from the Lepanto metro station, and a short walk from restaurants and bars in the evening. During our stay, Andrea also organised a tour of the Vatican - one guide for just the two of us - which is highly recommended if you want to make sense of the place. Our only very minor gripe - the water was tepid on the first evening, making showering unpleasant - was sorted by the following morning. Overall therefore a very pleasant stay. Our expectations were high, and we were not let down. We would stay again, without hesitation - there is so much more of Rome to enjoy!
