At the end of a european tour we stayed here for three nights. We wanted something central so this did the trick. This hotel is literally 2 mins from the Trevi Fountain. That is good and bad because the street out the front gets quite busy and there is some noise at times.
Entering the hotel it looks a little worn. The staff made up for it by being extremely friendly. We had 2 rooms both the same. The first we looked at was a "normal" size room with two singles and was fine for the girls. A little dated and "used" but clean enough.
Across the hall into our room was another story. The room was tiny. The lay out of the room was odd as it had a strange stub wall which destroyed any sense of space that it started with. We had two cases and were struggling to find enough room on the floor to open them.
I have never complained about rooms, but I just had to ask if they had something else. The lady at the desk was extremely helpful and looked straight into it (Thankyou F??????). Within 4 mins we were viewing another room (next door to our other room) which was much better. In fact it had an opening door onto a balcony of sorts and you could event see the top of the Trevi Fountain. Was a much bigger room although the bathroom was very dated. Making the decision to ask to see another room made all the difference to my 3 nights in Roma.
The breakfast downstairs in the breakfast room was OK but we had been spoilt in several other places that were superb so it seemed a bit average. The room itself was quite small and extremely crammed and busy. They have some "overflow" tables in the hall which we preferred as it gave more room.
As for location fantastic. So close to a lot of the sights. There is a supermarket not far away, just walk down to the Trevi Foutain, Turn left and follow via del lavatore up to the end (at via della Panetteria) and it is on the right. Was a great place to top up on bottle water, cool drinks or some beers for the room...
For shopping most of the roads toward the Spanish steps are closed on weekend to cars. So if you are into shopping just wander up the Via Del Corso and watch your cash dissappear.
We flew out of Fumichino Airport so organised a transfer from the hotel for 67 euro. There was 4 of us and lots of gear so ended up a great option as a single cab is 40euro and we would have needed 2.
In short - was a reasonal place to stay and would probably stay there again. I was going to mark it 3 stars but gave it an extra star for its staff who were very good.
