Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by solotraveler1 Great boutique hotel with outstanding spa services
Great boutique hotel with outstanding spa services. Rooms small but well designed and extremely clean. Staff professional and helpful; good recommendations for tours, restaurants, and nightlife. Location within walking distance to many popular tourist destinations, but best of all, hotel is located in a wonderful artisans area of Rome.

This was my fourth trip in just over two weeks and one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in.
The building is in good condition and very tastefully decorated. My deluxe room had quite unusual, but surprisingly pleasant, decoration and was well maintained, clean and with reasonable space. The bathroom was well-lit, organised efficiently and with excellent amenities. The walk-in wardrobe was spacious and effective. I was pleasantly surprised to find plenty of power sockets around the room.
I absolutely loved the rooftop bar and restaurant: it is such a pleasure to sit there and enjoy great food and very well-served drinks while overlooking the eternal city.
But the absolute best feature of this hotel are the staff: almost all of them were warm and welcoming and very focused on providing a great customer service. There was always a smile in their interactions with me.
Special mention should also go to the breakfast buffet which was varied, of high quality and featured some of the best patisserie I've ever tasted - including a home made fruit tart (called a "crostato" I believe) that was beyond fantastic.
I also very much appreciated the location of this hotel, in the historic Campo de' Fiori area of the city. I was able to walk to most of the major sights rather than have to rely on taxis or public transport. In the evenings the superb restaurant scene in Trastevere was a short walk away (and certainly far better than the places in and around Piazza di Campo de' Fiori).
The one point of criticism I have is that the wireless internet connection was very bad: signal strength was very low, often cutting out altogether, and even when a connection was established, this was slow and often unresponsive. I think the hotel should redesign their network infrastructure with more access points for both 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz and sufficient repeaters around the building. As on this occasion I was on a leisure trip, it wasn't a major barrier, but it would prevent me from booking this hotel for a business trip as a good quality internet connection is a very essential commodity when I'm working.
Despite this one negative point, which I hope they will fix (it's not expensive to get this right), I am very pleased with this hotel and had a wonderful time staying there. I certainly will go back there when I am next in Rome for a holiday.

Great Hotel to stay in. Will use it again if we return to Rome. Great, friendly staff. Met our expectations.
Easy to walk to the Vatican and all surrounding areas.
