1920's out- and -in looked, in absolute, in Italy, along with the most famous Via Veneto in Rome, this is the place that would make you recall memories of fifty-something years ago, when the Dolce Vita was blooming. Pictures framing Fellini (world class movie director), Marcello Mastroianni and Mrs Sophia Loren in the very same chairs you yourself are enjoying the calm ambient around warp you back into a movie theatre newsreel.
The effect, in our case, was completed by the presence in the building of the most famous Italian rock singer of the moment, with fans grouping outside the premises, sneeking through the doors and ready to shoot in the most genuine paparazzi style (fans ourselves this added to the off-reality sensation).
Personnel: kind and efficient. Premises are vintage and impeccabile. Room (an executive type, sort of basic) was spacious, clean and calm. Bathroom spotless.
Breakfast was the only minus. Sort of four-starish level with waterish juices and no special treats: you would expect in a five-star-luxury establishment, for example, a better selection of cold cuts (indeed not difficult to find in Italy...).
Out visit was off-season and we did not enjoy the full bloom of the garden and the beach and restaurant services that are renown to be excellent (indeed we will be back). Pool looked tiny for such a large facility, especially thinking to high-season conditions.
Price was reasonable.
Tip: ask for a top floor and sea view.

"Great location !!"4/5
Overall this hotel is in a perfect location. Room lovely big enough and very clean. Service very polite as we found over all of rome. Our only grumble is there is no kettle in the room need to take one and supplies. We found breakfast ok. Just be aware a lot of stairs but a small
Lift !! Some areas of Rome are run down so be aware. Overall had a lovely stay at this hotel. They even let us leave our bags there for the day !!
