We stayed for 4 nighs to end a great European holiday. This place is amazing. The rooms were huge, I can only guess they gave us a very good room as the king bed only took up one quarter of the length of the room and there is still the hall and bathroom!
It has old world charm in a stunning building which will only ever be found in a historic town like rome.
You can walk to most things if you're into exercise. We walked to the colosseum, sbut 2.5km and would have taken on the Vatican walk but for time. Nearby restaurants are good, but pricey, so head off the main road and into the side streets for better value.
The pool and gym is great for a holiday location.
The only complaint I have is they advertise a kids club, but there isn't one. They offer crayons on check in and free soft drink top ups, BT not a kids club. They did organise a lovely baby sitter for us when we went to the Vatican though...not the place for a 2 year old. He loved the babysitter and she was friendly and reliable.
I found the staff excellent, no rude staff at all.
Would return in a heartbeat....if you can secure a good rate. It can be pricey. It's a land mark hotel in Rome.
Thanks for the great memories!!
