“Could not fault it”
Reviewed 21 February 2010

Me and my boyfriend stayed here for 3 nights for a suprise 30th birthday holiday for him. We stayed in a Junior Suite (519) and we were very impressed. From some of the reviews i had read on here previous to our trip i wes expecting the room to be small but it was perfect for us. We had a Super King size bed and the mattress was so comfy it ensured every night we had a great nights sleep. The room was very clean and decorated very well. There was also a large sofa (which converted to a bed) and a good size bathroom. We even had a small balcony.Towels and bedding were changed everday, the only minor issue we had was we found the room to be very warm (there was air con in room which we could not get to work but we did not bother asking reception but if we did i am sure they would have been very helpful.) Breakfast was fine with yoghurts, fruits, cereals, pastries and some hot food such as eggs and bacon. Whenever we asked any of the staff help with directions, transport or excursions they were extremly helpful and their English was also very good. The number 8 tram which stops outside the hotel takes you straight to Largo di torre Argentina which is fairly central and from there we walked to Pantheon, Trevi fountain, Spanish Steps and Piazza Navona. We also decided to walk from Largo di Argentina to Vatican City which was very straight forward and took about 20min. From outside the hotel we also took the number 3 bus to right outside the collosseum. We paid 16 Euros each to enter Colloseum and this was entrance fee, audio guide and skipping most of the que. We did eat lunch in Piazza Navona in a restaurant called Dolce Vita and had just a Pizza each and a large bottle of Water. This came to about 30 Euros but it was very very good. In the evenings we stayed in the Trastevere area to eat we never went out to eat before 9pm but there are so many little alleys with restaurants you are spoilt for choice. We had a fantastic starter and Pasta each at a little restaurant that i think was called De Otello and i had a litre of House wine for 8 Euros i would highly reccomend this restaurant Great food, Great atmosphere and Great prices. The restaurants in the Trastevere area seem to be much cheaper than elsewhere. On our last night we went to a Place called la Scala the food was great however that night my boyfriend was violently sick all night and we put it down to the beef as that was the only thing he ate that i did not and i was fine. He was that ill that if it was not for our little boy back home we would have paid to stay an extra night and paid for flights later in the week when he was better. I had never seen him so sick and 2 days later he is still recovering!!!
Tip
If you go to St Peters Basillica and climb the dome be aware you have a choice of paying 7Euros and getting a lift then climbing around 321 steps or paying 5Euros and climbing 550. With my boyfriend being such a fitness freak he decided we should climb them all. After about 300 steps it starts to become very very narrow and quite claustrophobic. As you get higher up the dome the walls start to slant to the side so as you are climbing the stairs you are not even upright you are leaning to the right and using the wall as guidance as it is not very well lit. As you get nearer the top because most people who are ahead of you are tired you can end up walking up the stairs at a very slow pace, some people actually realised they did not want to carry on and stopped on the stairs but it is that narrow you can barely get passed. The last bit of the climb is up a very narrow spiral staircase which has a rope down the middle for you to hold on to but once you eventually get there you will see the views are totally worth it.

The hotel staff and accommodations were superb. The complimentary continental breakfast was a feast. It was a great way to begin our day of adventures in the Eternal CIty.

We stayed here one night - my wife and I with our two week old son. I was extremely pleased overall. The staff could not have been friendlier or more eager to help with our every request. The room, tastefully furnished in a classical style, was well-maintained and clean. Be aware that the rooms are small - knowing this, we chose the junior suite which at 135 euros cost only 20 euros more than the standard matrimonial (I got this price by calling the hotel, the official prices on the internet were higher, and of course it's the off season which helps) , but even the suite was pretty small - just one room, not really what I'd call a suite, and probably smaller than a standard room in an American hotel. But if you don't plan on spending much time in your room you won't mind. The buffet breakfast was much more abundant than is usual in Italian hotels. Location is excellent for downtown Rome - a few stops on the tram and you are at Largo Argentina right in the heart of things.

This is a great place to stay if you want to be near all the less expensive and more authentic bars and restaurants, as long as you don't mind using the public transport (trams/buses) to get to the main tourist spots. If you want to stay next to the Colosseum or Vatican then expect to pay more for the hotel, and eating out. There is a tram stop (number 8), and bus (number 3) that stops just outside the hotel so we found it very convenient, easy and incredibly cheap to get around - especially if you get a 3 day pass (11 euros) from the small shop a couple of blocks to the left of the hotel. Most sights are within walking distance from the end of the tram line.

The highlight of our 3 day stay was a visit to the spa in the hotel which included private use of the spa itself for an hour (whirlpool, steam room, sauna), a bottle of processo and 2 x 50 minute massages - all of which were excellent and a great way to end our trip.

Upon arrival we were greated by the Paulo who was very friendly and helped us plan our stay. We were also able to check in at 11am which was great after our early morning flight.

The breakfast buffet was good (not excellent) but had good coffee and is generally on a par with what you will get in most European hotels. The hotel IS a 4 star by European standards, but don't expect the rooms to be as large as what you will find in America or outside most of Europe.

If on a budget - don't sit down in bars/cafe's that serve food as it's cheaper to eat/drink standing by the counter. We found that a lot of places that sold great panini's didn't serve good pasta if you sat down to eat it (we heard a microwave being used so didn't eat like that ever again). The prices of drinks and food vary a great deal, with the most expensive cappuccino being 7.50 euros near the Spanish Steps (in Babbington's tea rooms). It's always cheaper to drink house wine by the quarter/half/litre than a bottle, and it tastes really good too. The best places we found to eat were in Trastevere by Santa Maria.

Tip - getting to and from the airport is easy and much cheaper by train than taxi. If you're coming in from FCO then go to the train station (follow signs from the arrivals lounge) and get a train to Trastevere. Then get the number 8 tram just outside the train station (direction Argentina) for a few stops to the hotel. Be aware of pick pockets, and make sure you validate your train ticket by putting it in the machines before getting on the train/tram etc.

We stayed in this hotel for 5 nights on our vacation to Rome.
As for the beatiful city, we really enjoyed our staying and we reccomened it for your vacations in Rome.
As soon as we walked in we noticed a warm and welcoming atmosphere, and the staff has been helpfull during our whole staying. The rooms are high quality and there also is a SPA center which is great, especially after walking the whole day visiting the city. It provides a bath tub, a fitness center, a sauna, a turkish bath and the opportunity for massages and treatments.
The roof garden is very relaxing and it provides a marvellous view of the city, we loved to sit there for "apertivo" around 6pm, enjoying the italian lifestyle.
The hotel is situated in Trastevere, an excellent spot to visit the city, and it is also very well connected to the main touring sites. In the aerea there are many opportunities also for nightlife, bars and shopping.
The overall four stars are all owned by this structure, which has a very good standards and services.

Concluding, we definetly recommend this hotel, and we ll definetly come back the next time we ll be back in Rome.

We reserved at the last minute and got a pretty good rate, but they put us in the absolute worst room they had. At least I hope there were not others worse. We were on the top floor and the ceiling in the bathroom leaked constantly. I complained about the water to at least three staff members and no one even came to look at it. I suspect the person that put us there knew about the leak when he gave us the room. There was incredible noise from the rooftop garden. Imagine dragging furniture and cinder blocks down a ventilating shaft with a 100 foot anchor chain. That is something like the noise in our room we experience half the nights we were there. If you stay there - check out the room BEFORE you give them credit card information. I do like this area of Rome.
