The hotel is very convenient for the all the Roman sites especially the Colosseum which you can see from the terrace. There were a good selection of restaurants nearby. We like La Pace del Cervello for its charm and friendly welcome. The staff on reception spoke good english and were very helpful in resolving issues like Boarding passes and tickets. The breakfast was outstanding, everything you might want The hot scrambled eggs were the best we have ever had in a hotel. The room(a double deluxe) was well decorated, not generous in size but that is normal for a central hotel. We asked for a quiet room and were given one at the back which was incredibly quiet for a city. The bathroom was excellent and well equipped with toiletries.
We advise any visitor who does not want to do a tour to buy your inclusive ticket at either the Forum or Palantine entrances. There were long queues at the Colosseum entrance but none at all at the other entrances. The tickets last for two days so you can buy in advance. The tours are mostly in the afternoon so we started early at the Colosseum and then worked our way round the others before they got crowded. The hotel being so close made it easy to buy the tickets and look round the sites. It is not far to walk to all the other notable places of interest such as Spanish Steps and Vatican.
