Excellent hotel in quiet location.
Posted Aug 13, 2016
This hotel is a quiet, residential location, set back off the main road, and is decorated in an old style Italian opulence. The room was small, probably because of the huge and very comfortable bed in it but the furnishings and fittings were all excellent, with a shower that could strip barnacles from a boat if needed. Our favourite feature was the start to the day, a wonderfully filling breakfast on the linen covered roof looking out over the skyline to the mountains beyond.
Rome is best explored by walking - the times you pass down an anonymous side street and appear in a square with a Roman ruin or a classic fountain are magical. Be advised that this hotel is 20 minutes walk on the wrong side of Termini from the main attractions. It didn't bother us but it might some, and there is a Metro station just 200 metres away from it if you want to travel underground.
Lovely hotel and staff, though!
