Family-run hotel near Colosseum/public transport
Posted Oct 17, 2016
It's a small hotel with only 9 rooms. Extremely nice and actually helpful family/staff. As soon as I arrived, I got a map which oriented me to where I was and how far I was from top tourist attractions. The owner also explained to me how best to get places which was really helpful for me since it was my first time in Rome. Room was always clean and it provided all the essentials. There is no lift or elevator but our room was just up one flight of stairs and although our bags were huge, it wasn't bad to get them to our room (one person holding one end of the luggage bag and another person the other). I only wish they spoke more English but somehow we managed to communicate the essentials. Room was a very nice size and was very clean every day. Bathroom size was good but the shower area was very small- regardless, got the job done. They do have someone who speaks English but she was only there one of the days of our stay- maybe you can request that before you arrive? OR learn basic Italian before your arrival. Also, notice that they offer a continental breakfast so don't expect a buffet or something too elaborate. Lastly, who packs lunch for you because you have to check out before breakfast is served? THEY DID! It was so nice of them, we really appreciated it. In summary, I had a great stay in this hotel- since they don't have more rooms, they get to know you, spend time with you, and are able to be more friendly and helpful.
