We stayed at this hotel over New Year. With 5 adults, we were very pleased that the triple rooms we had been allocated were spacious, light and airy. The heating was on too high for us, but turning it off and opening the window made it comfortable. The rooms were very nicely decorated and the bathrooms too, but we did have a problem with one bathroom that was a wet room shower which tended to flood. The breakfast was good and constantly being replenished. The free wifi was excellent, especially sending new Year messages, it was a little slow , but could of been very busy! We had a drink in the bar area, but with limited opening times, but the reception staff could always get someone to get you a drink or anything you needed. ( Especially as most small cafes, bars around the hotel were closed from 6pm New Years Eve till 2nd Jan). But lots of restaurants are open, even on New Years Eve., as most people were going to one of the gathering areas after their meal, to see the fireworks and acts.
The hotel is around the corner from the upmarket La Rinascente and 10 minutes walk to the Villa Borghese gardens. which we discovered on our last day as being a very large park and gardens with bike hire, pony rides for children and play areas. lovely any time of year.
New Year was fun and with lots going on especially after midnight around the Coliseum. It was a great party atmosphere with free circus acts, bands, fireworks and lots of Champagne flowing.
( Bring your own). The hotel was a 15/20 mute walk to Spanish steps, but a lovely way to see Rome and out of the way of all the crowds. With cobbled streets and some small hills bring comfortable (but stylish shoes) You are in Rome!
We had a great time and everyone wants to come back. But we would stay up later on New Years Eve as little is open on New Years day including all museums and historical buildings, and you cannot get near Vatican City, as the Pope is making his New Year speech.
Thank you a fabulous way to start the New Year.
