This small hotel is perfectly situated for walking tours of Rome's historic center. It is up to date, the staff is friendly and efficient, and it is not expensive. Breakfast is on the premises, a great savings of time and money. I couldn't recommend it more highly.

Truly a wonderful small hotel/guesthouse, location was perfect for walking around the sights and good restaurants. Service was efficient, personal and a lot more than we expected. We came for a wedding and the lovely hotel manager even arranged an appointment for my hairdo at a great salon close by and gave us a good discount for the services. We...

Beautrice was fabulous at check in and she covered absolutely everything we could possibly imagine, from restaurants, sights to booking our shuttle to the airport, she loves her job as she is so passionate about it. Rooms are quirky and comfortable, we had a loft style room, which was very nice, only thing is walking down the narrow staircase balancing...

Not a hotel but a hi-end B&B. Name very misleading since you really can't see the river from most (all?) rooms. I wish I could give this a "very good" rating since the manageress, Beatrice, is fabulous and very guest-oriented. However, the issues for me preventing "very good" include: - Great design but with lack of function in mind, e.g.,...

The staff really go out of their way to make your stay pleasant. We spent several days here in one of the rooms that had a loft/mezzanine. If I stayed again I would not choose this room. To reach the loft to make coffee, tea or to put anything in the fridge you have to navigate treacherous stairs. The tread,...

“Don't pay extra for a river view.”
  • Spacious shower. Loads of space for storage under the sink.
  • Toilet and bidet are on the right as you go in the bathroom-the door on the right doesn't open.
  • Door from the room into the bathroom. And one of the closets/beside tables. One on each side.
  • Comfy bed!
