this was our 1st trip to Rome, we booked the room online by contacting the owners through email directly with no 3rd party site. my 1st impression was very good because the communication with Michele was swift with informative instructions also i asked about the possibility of a transfer from airport to the hotel and they offered it in a very reasonable price (45 euro) considering the train ticket from airport to Termini station cost 14 euro per person. the driver was very friendly and professional and we had a very nice chat during the ride.
we arrived earlier than the proposed check-in time so the owners offered to give us another room until our room get ready but we opted to wait and have the breakfast till it get ready which took no time to be .
the room (Borghese)was exactly as been described in their website , it even exceeded my expectation. the bed and the design is elegant and very clean , spacious with couch that can turn to be an extra bed . a desk with 2 cups and Electric Kettle with coffee and tea . the bathroom was modern and very clean and hot water always there.
house keeping was done every day even we had some of our clothes thrown in bed they arranged and folded them .
they linen were changed every 2 days as been mentioned in their website although u can found an extra towels and linen in the closet.
and lets talk about breakfast, it was very delicious with wide array of choices and Michele was responsible of making our morning coffee and cappuccino which was very yummy .
about the location although it wasn't in the historical center of Rome but it was very close to bus stop (less than 1 minute walking) and 5 min bus ride to nearest Metro station so the location wasn't an issue at all.
finally i will talk about Michele and Christiano , both were lovely and friendly and they treated us like friends rather than clients . they helped us in everything we asked even walked us to nearest bus station .
our stay was perfect and definitely we will back
