Beware the a/c
While I loved the piano bar area, the hotel itself had quite a few problems. We were there in September and had a VERY SMALL, VERY HOT room. I asked twice for someone to check the a/c for us and was told there was nothing wrong with it. The male desk clerk (front desk) was also a problem. I'm not sure if it was a cultural thing or what, but he was VERY surly with me. I asked for change to tip the bellman and he informed me they had no change. The same thing happened the next day when I asked for change to tip the waitress after breakfast. He was very polite to my husband, however. I would NOT stay there again.
great location, nice people had a nice time with the piano bar
We loved it
The rooms are not big, but very comfortable. The furniture are beautiful. The bathroom in marble is very practical. Very clean. We will definitely go back. Staff is very polite and nice. Perfect location in Rome.
Nice stay in rome
good location-small rooms but good service nice people
Won't return here
Won't stay here again. Doesn't deserve it's 4 stars. Rooms were decorated nicely but very small, felt like a cruise ship room. Air conditioner in first room didn't work, then switched room and second room didn't have hot water. When we complained they didn't seem to care.
Hotel was clean but Tight!!
Hotel was clean but very very small and hot! We had a double room which contained one bed with about a foot of walking space around the bed. We felt very clastrophic because everything was so tightly fitted. I read somewhere that this hotel was a convent once so imagine how small the rooms were. There was no escape from the smallness of this hotel. Even the terrace garden was like a coffin, because the room was 10 by 10 with a high fence. The bathroom was marble but the shower was the size of a closet. So the water always turned off when we washed our hair. The view was non existent. We had two windows that faced brick walls so we felt like we were in jail.
Booked A Double, Got A Single
Breakfast at the hotel was awesome! We didn't realize until we left that we have been given a small single room, despite paying for a double. We left for one night to take a side trip to Florence and had confirmed with the hotel that we were booked for 2 nights upon our return; however, just before we left for Florence, they told us if we didn't pay for the night we WEREN't staying, we wouldn't have a room upon our return. We felt very betrayed and taken advantage of.
great hotel, very friendly, had a great room (bed was a little hard!) great views, we had a full size fridge and a washer/dryer in our room!
wow! nice balcony also, we stayed in a double room. roof restuarant very good. also il brillo parlante restuarant next to it has AWESOME food (pizza is the best I ever had), try the chocolate cake, you wont be sorry!

... for them to select the payment required. And that reminds me. Highlight of the morning..stepped out of apartment to go and see hotel to find filming underway at a trattoria in our square . Seemed as though main crew were American. The little board that they write on(Ive seen this in movies) had the title Allegiance on it. I googled back at apartmenr. I think its a TV series. Anyway scenes with main guy and girl being shot. Found this great to watch and ...
... as it was recommended as a good spot for nightlife in the city center. It's a large square similar to navona, but has a lot of buzzing restaurants and bars lined up on the perimeter of the square facing a fountain in the center. There's also a couple of frat-ish bars with a lot of American/Oz expat exchange student population. I hit a couple of these different kinds of bars, including one which had a beer pong table, and filled with "bro"s. Yup, exited that one in ...
... guide today which was special as it was like a private tour. Beautiful sculpture and frescoes. Walked past a huge amount of the Ancient Rome which is everywhere and amazing. A little rest now before drinkies on the terrace and dinner which in rome is late starting at 8pm. Off early tomorrow to head to Naples with a few stops along the way including Herculaneum which I am told is more interesting than Pompeii. Missing everyone and would love to hear from you, much love and more ...
... with Christmas lights. While the luggage was a setback, we did not allow it to ruin out first day in magnificient Rome.
Tomorrow is a Vatican tour and archeological dig followed by an evening in Tratevere. We're also hopeful we'll have new clothes to wear by the evening!

... the purest and freshest in all of Rome. The word palace today is derived from Palatine. This is where most of the ancient emperors built there palaces. Today there are still remains of the residence of Domus Flavia, Octavian, Julius Caesar, his wife Livia together with remains of palaces of various other roman emperors. The palatine also houses the Farnese Gardens which are said to be the first botanical gardens in Europe, the Museo Palatino (museum) houses artefacts ...
