Where can i start we found this hotel via Trivago then after selecting it we read all the reviews especially as most of them seem to mention that the rooms are small ( which i will come to later on)
The hotel is practically very central for Rome only about 15 mins walk to the Spanish Steps.It is only two mins away from a lovely ornate square called Piatzza del Popolo.In the evening you might get street entertainers here we had a Michael Jackson lookalike every night at about eight o clock.He was very good.also straight ahead off the square are three streets where there are an abundance of shops & restraunts.there is a lovely church in the square called Santa Maria del Popolo.
Back to the hotel the staff can not do enough for you,.when we booked in we were offered an upgrade but after the concierge showed us both rooms we stuck with our original classic room.DO NOT BE PUT OFF WITH ROOM SIZE.We were there for 5 nights in room 506 it had a wardrobe with draws where we could put our 2 cases also a safe there was a desk & chair & you could still walk round the room comfortably,also a mini bar with reasonably priced drinks for a change a tv with English news channels & also sky news & sports ,there was no problems with the pillows or mattress.
The bathroom was very ornate with marble sinks & lovely tiles a nice shower & plenty of toileteries, free wifi in the room,a silent air con & our room overlooked a pleasent courtyard. one nice touch is that the maid comes in the evening to leave the next days weather forecast on a card with a couple of chocolates.
Breakfast was to die for,it had everything,eggs,bacon,mushrooms,fresh fruit,cereals,yoghurts,cheeses,hams,breads,& pastries, coffee as well if you want ed a cappuchino or hot chocholate they would make you one.There was also a point where you could get ice cold still or fizzy water.
The hotel has a happy hour which lasts 4 hours ( 6-10 pm) this is half price drinks where you can get a cocktail for 6 euros.,also a steady supply of nuts crisps,sandwiches.One restraunt to try is Santa Anna the hotel will give you directions ,very nice seafood pasta.All in all would i stay here again you bet i would.
