“Beautiful Hotel, Perfect location”
Reviewed 9 August 2011

This hotel is located just off one of the main streets and was the perfect location for sightseeing. Turning left out of the hotel and down a couple of side streets takes you to the Trevi fountain. Left out of the hotel roughly the same distance are the Spanish steps.

On arrival we found the hotel to be up 2 flights of stairs with the option of a nice wooden lift up the centre. The reception was through two modern glass doors into a classically decorated entrance hall with wood desk. The staff were always friendly and promptly passed on faxed messaged with information about booked excursions and flight transfers. The desk was always manned and the attached lounged comfortably lit and clean.

Our room was spacious with high ceilings and wooden floors to keep the whole place cool. There were extra blankets and pillow in the walk in wardrobe and an information guide on the writing desk. the bathroom was clean and spacious also, the water was a bit loud but this was obviously a very old historical building. Finally although it was the middle of July the temperature inside the hotel was always comfortable and the shutters on the windows allowed a good nights sleep even in the middle of a busy tourist area.

We stayed here for 3 nights as the first leg of our Italian adventure, moving to Venice and Lake Garda afterwards.
The location was great, very close to the Spanish Steps and the Trevi Fountain.
The place itself was rather unusual to us - on the second floor in an old building, with a very tiny and old lift to get to it. The entrance to the building itself was not the smartest, but the hotel was rather quaint and in some ways rather lovely.
It was clean and the staff were friendly. The room was a little small, but the bathroom was very nice. Breakfast was ok, but nothing to rave about.
We were glad that this was the first hotel on our trip and not after the 2nd and 3rd as it would have been a bit of a let down after these I think. But as a base for a sightseeing trip we thought it was pretty good and I loved the character of the place!

We stayed in the City hotel for 3 nights end of July and have no complaints. The location was fabulous and the staff friendly and attentive. The facilities were spotlessly clean and breakfast was lovely. We got a special 3 nights for the price of 2 deal through citalia which is worth checking out.

We arrived at the City Hotel in Rome on our Honeymoon to find that our tour operator made a mistake with our booking. Reception quickly rectified the error. The room we were given unfortunately was not to our liking and we managed to get it changed to a bigger, quieter and lighter room the next day without any problems. All staff on reception were excellent.
The room we stayed in for the remainder of our trip was perfect, if this had been given to us from the start there would not have been any problems.
All of the Hotel staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Breakfast was lovely, the breakfast room is really cosy and the cappuchino and coffee the best we've had in Italy! When we had a very early morning trip to the Vatican city we were given quick and attentive service.
The Hotel was immaculately clean and the domestic staff were very friendly and kind. We didn't get any help with our cases and there are 2 lifts to go up or down - if your patient there wont be a problem.
The hotel is on the second floor and has an interesting history, which I learnt more about in the room information , with mosaic tiles on the stairs and attractive windows leading to the entrance which is always staffed day and night.
The location is ideal to visitors to Rome .The Spanish steps are only down the main road and the Trevi Fountain very close by also, we enjoy walking and found it a brilliant central location. We would use this hotel again!

Booked through Bookings and got a great rate. Read the TA reviews. We didn't come to Rome to watch TV so the TV channels were fine. Hotel was very clean - very friendly staff that was very helpful with directions, reservations and suggestions. Nice breakfast and coffee in the morning. More than enough to get your day started before you left the hotel. We wanted a place that let us walk and thsi was close to everything. We could open the windows and shutters .Very enjoyable and I would recommend and would stay again.
