Neat, charming hotel close to several tourist attractions. The historic Piazza del Popolo is a stone's throw away and from there, we walked to the Spanish Steps and the Trevi Fountain.
Hotel decor and lay-out is very interesting. Typical of a European charm, art work/paintings, stained glass ceiling in the lobby, impressive grand piano that added a classy touch. It would have been nice if someone played music while having a drink at the lobby (close to the bar).
Kudos to the bellman, he was very professional and friendly - more than the front desk personnel. Housekeeping - they have a ritual of sneaking into your room prior to bedtime and leaving some sweets (chocolates) and a little note (about the next day's weather). I thought it was interesting and a very sweet gesture. The bartender was a pro and just wonderful at what he does. Sorry, forgot his name - my husband would remember as he was always at the bar each night. Speaking of the bar, most drinks are half-price from 7:00 (or 6:00) thru 10:00 p.m., which came out to be a huge bargain compared to the restaurants and bars along the Piazza del Popolo area. They served chips, nuts and canapes for FREE.
The buffet was to die for. Even if they served the same stuff each day, there was no way for one to get burnt-out. Due to the extent of the selections, you can try some fare one day, and try another the next, so on and so forth. It was served as early as 6:00 a.m. thru 10:00 a.m. It was a fantastic way to start your day.
Would definitely recommend.
