People make a fabulous location better
Posted Oct 9, 2016
Albergo Santa Chiara has an enviable location practically abutting the Pantheon, and until this visit to Rome that has been the primary reason I stayed there. Nothing has changed in that department--the hotel has not moved and still provides the best neighborhood for a sightseeing assault on Rome because it makes walking to many of the most important sites the natural way to go. However, this time round I was struck just as forcefully by the congeniality and genuine helpfulness of the staff. I had to change my plans, and everyone pitched in to make it happen without a glitch notwithstanding some aggravating logistical problems. Rome will be Rome forever, but the staff at the Santa Chiara made a big difference in making me feel as if I really had a home away from home.
