We choose this hotel because it looked good in the pictures and because of the location.
We arrived before check in time and found the member of staff to be very friendly and understanding. He kept our luggage there and had the room prepared much ealier than than the check in time. He was very knowledgeable of the area which was very nice.
The hotel was only 5/10 mins walk from Colesseum and 10/15 mins walk from Piazza Venezia. Vatican City was only 40 min walk.
The room (room 42 on the 5th floor) was accessible by lift to the 4th floor and then a flight of metal steps from the terrace. For us this wasn't a problem at all and in fact was brilliant. The 2 floors on the 5th floor have their own terrace which is fairly private.
The room itself was a little on the small side but manageable. We didn't expect a huge room anyway. Only thing that I found not to work was the aircon. Wasn't an issue for us and completely forgot to mention to staff.
Breakfast was lovely. Both members of staff in the breakfast room were friendly and very helpful. Breakfast consisted of some yoghurts, cereal, crossiants, bread, various jams and some meat / cheese. Set us up nicely for the day.
Overall, a lovely little hotel that was perfect for us. Would reccommend and would stay there again myself.
