It is unbelievable to find such a quiet and peaceful place in the center of a vivid neighborhood such as Trasteverde, in the middle of all of Rome's excesses! One of our best hotel experiences ever! The room was clean, everything was in proper working order! The morning breakfast was fresh, and the staff was attentive to our needs. The surroundings are enchanting...we wish we were there in the summer to have breakfast in the courtyard. Trasteverde is very lively on saturday nights (the day we arrived) - we felt very safe walking around the neighborhood, and the ambiance was unique! We managed to get around pretty quickly and easily - if you like walking, the hotel is a maximum of 20-30 minutes walk from all major sites, but also a 5 minute walk from the tram which can take you to the train, buses or metro. There is also an ample choice of good restaurants nearby, which is extremely convenient if, like us, you walked all day, are tired, and don't feel like going very far for dinner. The only issue we had was with the wi-fi connection...it worked very well when we were able to connect, but we had many problems getting connected during our stay, even though we were able to clearly see the network on our devices...this should be looked at. The PC in the common area is a nice backup, but it is very slow, and isn't equipped for "skyping" with our loved-ones. All-in-all, a very positive experience...obviously at low-season rates...but I would not hesitate to pay the higher rates for this hotel during the hsummer! It's worth it! We lived Rome to the fullest, and slept soundly at night! Perfect!
