We chose this hotel based on the reviews on this site. We were not dissapointed! A great location within walking distance to most of the tourist sites. The Coliseum is about 30 minutes walk, the Trevi Fountains and Spanish steps about the same distance.
The hotel shares it's entrance with some other hotels and apartments, and there is a small lift to the 4th and 5th floors where it is situated. We were welcomed by a very informative getleman who showed us around and explained how breakfast is served and the facilities of our room. The rooms have very high ceilings and are very homely. The beds were firm but comfortable and the air conditioning worked well which was a releif as it reached 37 degrees when we were there!
Breakfast rolls are left in a basket on your door every morning, and cornflakes, orange juice, tea and fresh coffee are available in the entrance hall.
Bear in mind that there is a small amount of tax to pay for each adult for each night you stay. It was only 2 Euros per adult per night.
The young lady on reception was delightful and spoke good English. I spoke to her before we arrived to arrange for a taxi to collect us from Fiumicino airport which was a fixed price of 60 Euros. She also helped me arrange sightseeing tours and suggested some good places to eat.
The only criticism I have is that the walls and ceilings are pretty thin, so if you have noisy guests in other rooms then this can bleed through, but this only happended a couple of times and usually when we were already up and getting ready to go out.
I loved the city and plan to go back. I will choose this hotel again as there are so many to choose from but this ticks all the boxes as far as location, service, value and cleanliness are concerned.
