We just spent 8 days at the Suite Sistina and mostly loved it, although a few suggestions are in order to make this an even better experience.
On the positive side, this is like living in a private home; a luxurious one at that. We did not mind the fact here is no elevator, nor the fact there are no public areas. The staff could not have been more professional, more attentive, more courteous. At the end of our stay, we felt we had made friends with Daniela, Tania, John, to mention a few.
The location is perfect, within walking distance of several attractions, very close to bus stops and the Spagna and Barberini metro stops.
We loved having our breakfast in our room; everything is perfectly prepared to order, beautifully served on linen and design china. This is no ordinary breakfast and even the most demanding guests will love the eggs prepared to order, fresh-squeezed orange juice, muesli, croissants, cheese and cold cuts choices, soy milk, and many varieties of honey, jam, and teas. There is also a complimentary minibar (beer, wine, water, juices, nuts, chips) stocked every day, and a wonderfully welcome Nespresso machine. Toiletries are a very nice touch.
On the side of suggestions we would like to see implemented, we missed having some space for our clothes. There are hangers to hang clothes, but no drawers or cabinets. I do not like to live out of my suitcase for 8 days. When shirts and coats were hung on the hangers, they blocked the view to the television. Just as inconvenient, there was not sufficient space to place our laptops. As the room has no coffee table, we had to take turns using the little space next to the Nespresso machine.as a working area.
Finally, there is the shower issue. The shower is a glass cube in the room itself. Unless one is on a honeymoon trip, perhaps one would like some privacy when showering? Just saying...
But overall, despite the quirks, this is a unique experience.
