Excellent central location, classy building
Posted Nov 16, 2016
fantastic classic building with provenance in a superb location. Staff were very attentive and polite. Breakfast was extensive and the dining room impressive. The bar and roof terrace were relaxing with all requirements catered for in a very classy environment.
The location was perfect, we were right in the thick of it and able to walk to anywhere you can think of in Rome although we did use the metro once to get to the coliseum as we were running late which was easy and cheap. Enjoyed all of the walking around the narrow cobbled streets visiting numerous piazza all furnished with impressive fountains. The Churches are everywhere, free entry and incredible to see, many of them easily rivalling and outdoing the Cistine chapel in terms of decoration and adornment. Prices for food and drink varied considerably, the tiny restaurants are every where but the ones on the smaller side streets just off the Piazza are much better value than the ones in the piazzas themselves and I think in general had more genuine atmosphere. A guide book was a good choice as Google maps struggled to locate our position a lot of the time. Gelato was divine. Lots of artists selling their high quality original paintings and they enjoy a haggle. November was a perfect time to go to avoid crowds and high temperatures. Visited Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps , Coliseum, Vatican museums, Pantheon, many other Churches and Piazzas.
