Checked out a day early and didn't have anyone inquire as to why. Also, they lost an airport pillow, no biggy though.
BY FAR the nicest hotel my wife and I have stayed at bar none. Great food, great staff/service, great pool. If you haven't stayed at the Waldorf before (NYC etc) be prepared to pay 9€ for a fanta or 36€ for a margarita pizza. Compared to most restaurants where they charge 8€ for the pizza and 3€ for the fanta. Not at all a detriment but could catch some people off guard if you didn't do your research.
Arrived at the Hotel a few hours before check-in time so our rooms were not ready, the reception staff stored our cases and the bar staff were very attentive while we waited with a few cold well needed beverages ;) they came for us as soon as our rooms were ready, we had booked 2 comfort rooms which were spotless and cleaned with towel changes daily. The AC was well received as the temperatures were +35'C as well as the ice machine on the basement floor. We had free wifi in with the room rate and with the USB ports in the rooms didn't need an adapter to charge our phones/iPads. The only criticism I would have is the only English speaking Sky channel was Sky news 24, and there was only a single chair on each of the balconies no good if 2 of you wanted to sit out and there was no table :( The Hotel did have several coach tours coming and going but they seemed so well organised this did not impact on our stay at any time. The Hotel is a good distance from Rome centre which we knew before we booked and the staff were so helpful directing us to the local transport links it was never an issue, and we purchased our Roma cards at reception. Breakfast was more than adequate with sliced Ham & cheeses, fruits, yoghurts & cereals, breads & croissants with different spreads & jams and bacon & scrambled eggs with choice of beverages. Unfortunately we didn't find the time to use the gym or attend the restaurant in the evening. Overall we had an excellent 4 night stay and would book again
My girlfriend and I chose this apartment to have the convenience of a kitchen and a pool (seeing as our visit was at the end of June) and it appeared good value.
The apartment was a fantastic size, with spacious balcony and bathroom and kitchen were very clean and good quality appliances.
The hotel itself had no flaws and we couldn't have been happier. The only issue is that you feel a little out of town... BUT the train station is right on your doorstep. The "tobachi" next door sells train + metro tickets at €1.50 and it takes about 15 mins to pop up at most central sites. Alternatively, a bus takes you straight to Vatican (although we never actually took this).
Rest assured, we had a couple of later nights in the city after dinner and a taxi home was around €15.
Finally, one of the best meals we had was actually in the restaurant right next door to the hotel which we went to after a particularly long touristy day!
Would recommend this apartment if you want somewhere to relax as well as do site seeing. Perhaps better for those staying a week rather than weekend getaway.

I have stayed in several hotels for business abroad but this one was on a personal visit. So the hotel was good, the staff friendly, food great and I would rate 4 out of 5 .
As they say you can say a lot about someone during a lost luggage and a rainy day (Its not just about the person who lost, but the ones who make a difference). I lost my valuables and passport and had to run between the cops and the embassy. The hotel became my home until I got everything resolved. that's when I realized this wasn't just another hotel. right from cheerful conversations (Each one of them at the reception and the bar man) to getting my print outs on time, even getting my passport photograph cut to perfection, the staff were with me! when I bid adieu, it was like for some good friends..
We were in Italy for about 12 days and travelled Rome, Venice, Lake Como and Milan. But our best stay was in Rome in the Romantic Nest.
The apartment is super convenient. It is within easy reach of the city centre and anything you'd want to see in Rome. It is also walking distance to Stadio Olimpico, so we'd highly recommend it if you're in Rome to watch soccer.
It is also very near the supermarket and plenty of eateries if you don't feel like cooking.
Luca is friendly and extremely helpful. We cannot be more thankful.
This upscale residential area is largely comprised of villas and embassies but also popular landmarks such as Ponte Milvio, bustling with restaurants and shopping. Encompassing the Monte Mario natural reserve and the astronomical observatory, the Olympic Stadium is also located in this area. The stadium is one of the largest in Europe, and home to the famous soccer teams AS Roma and SS Lazio.
