Right opposite swanky [node:164357]. Scenographic Piazza del Popolo is a short hop away, and the [node:169860] are just down the road.
The 32 rooms and suites are done out in a soothing Neo-Classical style with warm cream and gold tones prevailing amidst the classy antique and reproduction furnishings. I like the fourth-floor suites with their own private terraces. Note that, especially by North American standards, rooms can be small.
There's a rather conventional lounge, but it's the roof garden that really stands out.
Eating and drinking
A good buffet breakfast is served in a pretty barrel-vaulted room in the basement. Drinks are served on the panoramic roof terrace.
There’s a fitness room with all the usual machines, and a small sauna.
In my experience this is excellent: the desk clerks are courteous and efficient, and quick to organise taxis and transfers.
Who stays there
Those looking for full hotel services and a premium location without paying the steep rates of the [node:164357] across the road. During the week, plenty of business travellers check in here, attracted by the gym, the WiFi and the proximity to the Piazzale Flaminio taxi rank and metro station.
