Piazza Navona is just around the corner, the [node:168824] and Campo de’Fiori are a short walk away, while the [node:168805] or [node:168817] are both within 10 minutes’ reach by bus. The hotel is also well placed for a number of good bars, pizzerias and restaurants, and for the funky mix of alternative fashion boutiques, secondhand emporiums, design shops, jewellers and artisans that cluster in the Piazza Navona and Pantheon areas.
Teatro Pace 33 has 23 mostly spacious, elegant rooms. The repro antique furniture and beige, brown and blue colour scheme lacks some of the character that such a historic location might deserve, and bathrooms can be on the small side, but it’s all easy on the eye, and functional too. For something a little more luxurious – and for the views that most rooms lack – book the top-floor triple deluxe (which is actually two rooms on two different levels) or the junior suite, both of which share a small terrace overlooking the dome of Sant’Agnese in Agone. One downside is ambient noise – not so much from the cobbled street, which rarely sees any traffic, but from surrounding bars and clubs, and from other rooms. If you’re a light sleeper, bring earplugs just in case.
There aren’t any; the tiny reception area is no more than a desk in the entrance corridor.
Eating and drinking
Continental breakfast is served directly in your room.
Courteous and friendly in my experience – and they are usually happy to help you carry your bags up or down those stairs.
Who stays there
Value-conscious tourists who want to live in history, not just visit it. Also the occasional budget business traveller, attracted by the good-value single rooms.
