Fabulous location but tired
The situation of this hotel is perfect - just across the river from the Vatican and around the corner from Piazza Navona. You can walk everywhere. The hotel does not have a restaurant but does provide a continental breakfast - not the best but it is something. There are some good restaurants just across the road. We had a triple room - the same room that we had on our last visit 6 years ago! It was a good size but the decoration is very tired. The bed is very hard. The bathroom is again a good size but the shower cubicle is tiny and the shower itself was broken so you had to hold the shower head yourself in order to shower. Desperately needs new shower facilities. Beware if booking through Hotels.com. Your booking confirmation will state that the price INCLUDES taxes. When you pay, you will find that they add further city taxes to your bill as apparently the taxes referred to in the booking are VAT. At the time of check out, the City taxes are applied which can increase the amount you have to pay by quite a lot, depending upon how many in your group and the number of days that you stayed. It does not advise of these further taxes anywhere on your reservation, nor are you advised by the hotel when you check in.

The location is perfect with being in walking distance of many must see sights. I would not hesitate to stay here again. The included breakfast was fine with scrambled eggs being the only hot item. There was a nice selection of pastries along with bread, meats, cheeses, and fresh fruit. If checking out prior to normal breakfast hours, they can have a breakfast box prepared for you. The negatives were there was a lot of sound from the rooms beside me, guests returning very late and not concerned for others who prefer to rise early and avoid lines at the Vatican and such. I had a single twin bed room and am of average build, a person larger would have struggled getting in and out of the shower due to the angle of the doors. There was a shortage of outlets in the room but by unplugging a lamp, I could plug in my phone charger. But again, I would definitely return.
