We had arranged a transfer from Rome airport to the hotel, if it is your first time in Rome I would recommend as the airport is quite a distance from the centre of Rome. The driver must have informed the staff that we were approaching the entrance of the hotel as they were there to greet us and take care of our luggage. I had noticed that some reviews had said that cars/taxis couldn't stop outside the entrance, we didn't encounter this problem. The greeting from the staff was lovely warm and friendly. We were shown to a room in the ruins where we were given a welcome drink and fantastic tiramisu while they sorted out the paperwork and had our bags sent to our room. We had an upgrade to the two bedroom apartment which was fantastic with its own sitting room kitchen and two bathrooms. It was impeccably furnished and spotlessly clean. The location of the hotel is a 5 minute walk to the colosseum and forum but as it's down a side street it was very quiet giving us a peaceful night sleep each night.
All the staff we met from front of house to cleaning staff were so friendly. In the evening we sat on their beautiful roof terrace for a drink with complimentary buffet before heading out for our meals. The bar tenders we met were very knowledgeable and passionate about Rome and gave us great recommendations on where to go and what to see...thank you.
Breakfast is served on the terrace in good weather which we were lucky to have, it is buffet style with an excellent choice and they will also cook eggs to your liking along with pancakes and waffles. All the staff were attentive friendly and made you feel as if you were having breakfast in a good friends home not a hotel. Barbara's little treats at breakfast were also a lovely touch.
There isn't a restaurant but this isn't a problem as the restaurants that were recommended to us were exceptional in walking distance and not expensive.
I cannot praise the staff enough. This is a lovely hotel and I thoroughly recommend staying here. I'm already planning my next visit to see more of this fantastic city
