Stayed here for just one night at the start of our visit to Rome.
The hotel is superbly positioned about 2 blocks from the bottom of the Spanish steps but just slightly off the main street so that it is relatively quiet.
This is certainly one of the smaller boutique hotels we have stayed at and the reception area is a very small room on the fist floor reached by a lift or short flight of stairs. Other than that there are no public areas at all except the lovely terrace on the top floor which also serves breakfast (which we didn't experience)
Our room was a beautiful suite on the 4th floor extremely tastefully decorated (as you would expect from Salvatore Ferragamo) and very comfortable indeed. No views to mention from either of our two sets of windows but this shouldn't be surprising in a city centre. Staff were exceptionally helpful with restaurant recommendations - in fact, they have a wonderful little guide to a wide variety of restaurants in Rome which you must use and which is broken down into, chic, modern, traditional trattoria etc.
My only very mildly negative comment concerns parking. It is a fairly difficult hotel to drive to (being in the controlled zone) and there is no parking. Similarly there is no parking service although one of the excellent staff accompanied me in the car to a garage approximately half a mile away and walked back with me to the hotel. The following day we had to negotiate our way back to the hotel to collect our luggage. No big deal but you should think twice before taking a car there.
All in all a very enjoyable stay and highly recommended.
