Spent a wonderful 2 nights at the hotel, wish it could have been longer. On arrival we were served lovely chilled fruit juices which were very welcome and then shown to our rooms. The decor in my room was lovely and had everything you could want, including very effective air con.The bathroom was spotless and had a good powerful shower. Room size was perfect for me but if you had alot of luggage, it may have been a little cramped, although you probably would not spend much time in the room anyway.
There is a very nice lobby/sitting area where you can relax and read a paper etc., this joins the breakfast room which is very nicely appointed, you can also eat in the lovely peaceful garden. Breakfast itself was excellent, with a wide choice of breads, pastries, fruit, meats, cheeses, cereals the list goes on. A special mention for the waiter in the morning, who was very helpful.
We thoroughly enjoyed the complimentary tea & cakes in the afternoons. As someone else mentioned, it would have been nice if there had been a little more variety on the bar menu for food (light snacks) at lunchtime, as there is nothing else in the vicinity. The gentlemen at the desk in the evening, gave us some good tips on restaurants (especially in the Testaccio area) and booked the tables for us.
The location is excellent, yes it is a 15/20 minute walk to the Colosseum etc, but there are buses/metro nearby and the taxis are very reasonable. It was worth staying here just to come back to the peace and tranquil surroundings of the Aventine Hill.
I would highly recommend staying here and hope to return soon.
