Shabby chic. Not impressed.

Although an attractive hotel, in a quaint, old fashioned sort of way, it was difficult to find (it was located within a courtyard, behind large wooden doors, on the first floor, with a very small name plaque amongst a list of other names ).
It had one of those old fashioned 'caged' lifts reminiscent of the 1920s, which we found very charming, but would be difficult for someone on their own with more than hand luggage, to manage.
The room was beautifully decorated and the queen sized bed was very comfortable. However, noise from the street (revellers and motorists) kept us awake all night (Rome never sleeps).
As there were no facilites for dining, it was room service only for breakfast (OK if you don't want full English, which cost more anyway), check out had to be by 11.30 nand there was nowhere to store luggage.
Overall, not good value for money
