The hotel is a remodeled town house build in my opinion about 100 years ago for a well to do Romans. Residential area. 3-4 rooms on each floor. Use to be a flat perhaps. 15 min walk to Vatican and 15 min in different direction to Metro station. Also 10 min to trams and buses if you know where they going. |There are many features in hotel of that period. Lovely marble staircase. The reception is on 4th floor, but there is an old fashion lift, working perfectly.|Room was basic, like Premier Inn but less worn out with more classical style. Very clean. In a hot weather just bed sheet was enough. Blankets were on the shelf. Air condition was easy to adjust to welcoming cool 18 degree. Street down below was quiet at night, (new double glazing anyway) with useful food shop and cafeterias. 5 min away there is a proper shopping street with a variety of expensive shops, but there is also a mostly fruits and vegetable market. |The manager let us use room well after leave time as we had an afternoon train. Thank you again. |Decent size shower with a little temperamental hot water supply. Probably much dependent on time used.|There is a restaurant called BENCO near by on Via Fabio Massimo where I had the best steak tartar ever. My wife's lasagne was delicious too.|In warm weather we enjoy large roof terrace open in the evening. It is like quiet enclave, or oasis in a build up area with a panoramic view. Coffee table, sofas, TV. Virtually open air living room.|We stay there for 3 days. Location for Rome attraction is excellent. |Recommended.

This 3 star Hotel is 15 minutes walk to the Vatican City. NOT suitable for disabled, as you need to walk up 8-10 steps to get a lift. The room is compact and they have a Shower in the Bedroom (Yes in the bedroom), with a separate toilet. Learn to operate the shower, as it can be difficult for some. The breakfast was good. To catch the sightseeing Tour buses its a good 20-25 minutes walk to the other side of the river. Buy your tour tickets outside, and negotiate a reduction. The location can be good if you are mobile and able to walk. The Superstore next door is good and also has a supermarket to get cheaper supplements e.g. water, snakes etc. If planning to visit inside the Vatican, try to get there before 9.00am to avoid the long ques.
