Stayed in the hotel for a 5 day city break in Rome, Came across this hotel by chance and compared to any others that got looked at this one was a cut above the rest.
When we arrived at building which contains other business other than the hotel, we took some time to arrive at the correct floor (which was our fault really because there was a doorbell labeled outside). We were greeted by the Manager Mr Simone whom with have had contacted by email when we booked it and passed along any relevant details beforehand.
Mr Simone himself was a very friendly gentleman and was completely prepared for our arrival, he gave us a brief of Rome and recommended what areas are really worth visiting as well as explaining the subway. He also explained very well the keys for the building, hotel, room and safety deposit box. He made us feel really comfortable and quite happily answered any of our questions and arranged our transport back to the airport when we checked out.
Mr Simone showed us to our room which was the suite, we were amazed at how well setup, with a really good sized room completed with armchair, office desk and chair, a comfortable big bed and a good sized bathroom.
The bathroom was very clean with what I find rare in hotels a really powerful quality shower (with also a rainfall like shower head as a second part which was a good touch, oh and you could change the colour of the lights if you desired to) .
The location of the hotel was near enough perfect as we were approx 10 minutes away from the Colosseum, 2 minutes away from the easy to use subway which runs directly through many stops throughout Rome including the main train station (which we arrived at by train direct from airport so it was a simple jump off and jump on subway). The room was very quiet with the occasional siren coming past on the nearby road which is expected in a capital city.
I have no faults for the hotel, the room, Mr Simone and his wonderful housekeeping staff and it made our first trip abroad absolutely spectacular as we had a nice hotel to come back to.
Also note there is a very nice breakfast cafe about 30 seconds to the right of the main door which became very useful on the morning.
