This hotel is well situated close to the main railway station Termini with all kind of services and easy transports to all parts of Rome (metro, bus, tram, taxi...), which is important to know, since the main attractions of the city are quite far from each other. It's an old patrician building with very spacious rooms and bathrooms with high ceilings. Although the furniture is simple, you will get a feeling of luxury thanks to the atmosphere, the excellent quality of air in the rooms and the small extras offered (extra pillows and plaids in the wardrobe), a lot of towels at the disposal of the guests, the silent location etc.
The hotel is very clean with hygienic parquets on the floor and lots of soap and shampoo in the bathroom. The Wi-Fi worked perfectly in the room. The staff is welcoming and friendly - a special thank you to Fabio in the reception and the smiling lady in the breakfast area!
Since it's an old patrician apartment building, some minor issues may occur. For example in the room we had, the water didn't evacuate properly and it was difficult to get a warm shower (the water being too cold or too warm). But the only deception was really the breakfast, which is close to nothing. We were in Rome just before the busy Easter holidays and paid a quite high price for the room, but it was worth the price with the exception of the very poor breakfast.
In conclusion, I would still say that this hotel was a different and pleasant surprise in a city like Rome, where it's actually quite difficult to find a good hotel to a reasonable price.
