This small hotel is in a great location. We stayed for 5 nights and our room on the second floor was large with a small sofa and desk in the room. It had a large bathroom with a huge sink that could hold all your toiletries. They had fluffy white bathrooms and slippers which was a very nice touch. We slept peacefully in the evenings and enjoyed how quiet it was. The staff was very nice and helpful.
The hotel lobby is located on the second floor and although the building has an old fashion elevator we chose to walked the stairs. The location was in a great neighborhood near the Via Veneto where all the exclusive hotels and boutiques stores are located. We walked to all the major tourist sites (Coliseum,Forum, Palatine Hill, Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain, Pantheon, Travestere, Vatican City and the Borghese Park and Gallery is only a block away) from the hotel. I think the furthest destination was Vatican City (St. Peters) took about 45 minutes to walk there. The Borghese Park next door was a great getaway from the crowds. It isn't as well kept as Central Park in NYC but it is still beautiful. You could enjoy a nice walk or run or sit on a bench and read the paper after all your sightseeing.
There is a great bakery/gelato place across from the hotel. I don't recall the name but you will walk by it if you stay here. The most delectable treats tempt you easily. It was a good thing I discovered it on our last day. Otherwise, I would have been there every day.
We loved Rome and had sunny warm days while we were here in late October. I'm know we will find ourselves back to visit again and we would definitely stay here.
