Pleasant hotel & great location
Posted Jan 17, 2017
Overall, a very pleasant hotel - grand entrance and lobby! Myself and my fiancée went to Rome to celebrate our engagement, which I (secretly) notified the hotel of this when booking. Upon arrival we received a free room upgrade and a bottle of prosecco on ice waiting in the room which was a nice touch. However, to say we had a room upgrade, the room was on the small side but this was least of our worries. We came to Rome to sightsee, not to spend hours in the room!
Breakfast was ok, nothing special but a good selection of fresh fruit, pastries, cereals and cooked food.
Can't comment on the standard of the evening meals in the restaurant as we ate out for the duration of our stay, which looking at the hotel menu was cheaper (16euro for a pizza compared to 8-12euro out).
One thing that let our stay down (very picky) was the faint smell of cigarette smoke in our wardrobe that made our clothes slightly smell. Other than that for the price I paid through Expedia, I would highly recommend purely down to the location.
• 15 minute walk to the Colosseum
• 20 minute walk to Roman Forum/Palatine Hill
• 30 minute walk to Trevi Fountain
• 35 minute walk to Pantheon
• 1hr walk to Vatican City
All our walking was at a relaxed pace so any fast walkers could easily knock 5-10 minutes off our time.
