Great stayPosted Aug 10, 2014
Great location, right next to Piazza Navona. Domenico the manager was a great help and really friendly. Our room was a bit small but bed was comfortable and bathroom was great. Very clean room. Loved the old building and the lift! Pickup service from the airport was easy.. Overall, I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Rome!

Good, small hotel operation.Posted Jul 31, 2014
Convenient- neat some lovely piazzas and 15 minute walk to major sites. Nice clean room. Staff goes over the top to be accommodating, but ran into some logistical challenges during our stay I think because they are so small: ran out of towels one day, and out of hot water on another.

This hotel is central to everything. The markets, the plazas, and all the sights. Domenico was a perfect host. He goes out of his way to give you all the info you need for an amazing Rome experience.

Historic experience, perfect locationPosted Jul 7, 2014
Pros: Very much a uniquely Roman experience in the middle of the sites/culture/dining and Piazza activity. Personal attention from the manager, Domenico
Cons: Arrival can be a little disconcerting in that occasionally the front door buzzer took some time to answer. Make sure to notify of arrival time.
Location: Everything is close except some of the ancient sites on the edge of town. The vatican museum entrance also might require a taxi.
I cannot comment on the general rooms in the main building as we had a 2 br apartment located about 100 feet away off the main street. The building has a huge history as a papal residence. We had 3 keys to get into a series of courtyard gates and our apartment door that looked like something from a castle. There were 6 set of stairs to our entry. The unit included decorative touches that made it feel like an escape right out of a 1950s Roman Holiday movie. There was a full kitchen and bathroom with good shower. We could walk easily to Piazza Navona, Campi de Flor, St. Peter's, the Tiber, Pantheon, and just a bit further walk to Spanish stairs, Trevi ftn, Colosseum/Forum. Key buses run right in front. There was an ATM and taxi stand close. A great pizza bar served 1.60Euro/4 slice unique pizza very close. A grocery store for stocking the kitchen was about 4 blocks away. Our stay included free breakfast at a great restaurant a block away (not all stays include this so clarify). Domenico manages this property with extreme care and detail. He is a great resource on Rome as well. Don't expect a standard hotel experience. You stand on the street, ring a buzzer to be buzzed in and again inside. It is more of an apartment experience in that there isn't a constant presence or facility amenities. Domenico is available via email/phone however and it was really something unusual we are glad we did. We stayed 2 nts here to do city center and then out to Waldorf 3 days.

Great locationPosted Jun 29, 2014
The hotel is very well located. It's at a walking distance to everything. We felt very welcomed and Domenico helped us right from the beginning with anything we needed (taxis, recommendations). The rooms and bathrooms are very clean. The room sizes are comfortable. Would definitely stay here again on our next visit.

The perfect location, excellent all round.Posted Jun 24, 2014
Pros: Great location, rooms are ideal. Air conditioning is fantastic, the best thing is the manager Dominico. Extremely helpful and knowledgable.
Cons: I'm sure there is something, but I don't know what it is.
Location: Ideal location. Walking distance to more or less every main attraction. A great square directly opposite full of restaurants, shops and a daily market
My wife and I recently stayed here and as most tourists do, tried to find fault but couldn't. The location is great, from here you can walk to any attraction, 2 minutes from piazza novona, 20 from the Vatican, 10 from the pantheon etc directly across the road is the DaVinci museum of machines, which is well worth a visit. Before we arrived the manager, Dominico asked us to confirm our eta and offered us a taxi service from the airport, which if you are travelling with Ryan air seriously consider this as the transfers aren't great. Upon arrival we were greeted and made to feel very welcome. The building itself is fantastic large imposing doors lead into a vestibule with impressive architecture and painted ceiling. It also has an old style iron caged wooden lift which I personally loved. Within 10 minutes we knew everything we needed to know. Take advantage of dominicos hospitality and knowledge, we found everything with ease and he recommended a fantastic restaurant just across the way in very nice square, which has lots and nice places and is a cheaper and less touristy that the main piazza navona which is only 2 minutes walk behind the hotel. You are literally surrounded by 100 restaurants, shops, entertainment. Breakfast is included at a nice cafe 100m up the road, and again can't really fault it. The rooms are ideal for a base, small, comfy bed, tv, mini fridge, safe, air con. If I went back to Rome, I would go back here to stay without hesitation.

Amazing Service and Great loacationPosted Jun 20, 2014 on Hotels.com
Domenico is a definite reason to stay at this hotel. His care of the customer and desire to make your stay memorable makes us want to return to Rome soon. We would not consider staying anywhere else. He provided directions, bus routes or eatery locations. He arranged airport transportation prior to our arrival. The hotel was clean and spacious. It's conveniently located between the Piazza di Campo Fiori and the Piazza Navonna. It was a short walk to the Pantheon for an evening stroll. There's a lift for those that can't easily manage stairs, although limited to two people. I definitely recommend this hotel if you are visiting beautiful Roma.
