My mother and I stayed here recently, and it is a truly lovely hotel in a posh, upperclass neighbourhood. Our room, #95, was small but attractively decorated. Roll down shutters and a good a/c unit ensured it was quiet and cool, although we did hear some noisy guests coming in late at night. There was a large tv, a small fridge fully stocked with the usual minibar drinks, and a safe in the closet. I found the bed to be too hard for my liking, so asked for a blanket to sleep on....which didn't really help either, but they did supply it. The bathroom was very big, and had every amenity you could ask for. We did find it quite dangerous, though, as the shower is one of those styles with no doors to control the water from spraying everywhere, and on marble floors that is extremely slippery. The garden was a lovely oasis of quiet to sit and read, and the other common areas were well appointed too. The breakfast offerings were extensive, and they would make you a cappuccino, espresso or hot chocolate on request, which was fantastic. We saw some guests complaining or being demanding, which was rather embarrassing since the staff were clearly working hard to make sure everyone had what they asked for. Armando, a concierge, was helpful with our bags and also when the phone wouldn't work. One of the front desk clerks, Georgia, was particularly helpful when our travel plans had to change, and she worked out the details for us. She also helped with transportation questions, which brings me to the main downfall of this hotel for tourists. It's too far away from everything! Sure, the neighbourhood is lovely, but it's almost a kilometre to walk to the nearest bus, train or tram (even further) stop. That might not sound like far, but after you've been sightseeing all day, and are footsore and exhausted, it is VERY far! Additionally, the closest train station, restaurants and grocery store were at the bottom of a long flight of stairs (76+). We usually don't stay right in the centre of town and we both walk A LOT when we travel, but this was very inconvenient for us. In short, I would recommend this hotel for people with a car or who don't mind staying far out from the sights. It is a four star, and deserves that classification. We felt we got our money's worth here for the service and quality of the establishment. But if you want to be in the centre of the action, and don't want to drag yourself home at the end of a long, hot day of sightseeing, look elsewhere. Also, book airport transfers yourself....we paid 48 EUR for a car and driver (Mercedes) from Fiumicino, and taxis cost the same....Degli Aranci charges 55 EUR for the same service!
