 "Staff was of the top helpful"
Pros: Staff was of the top helpful. let me in for late breakfasts. let us borrow their laptop, print reservations. made great restaurant recommendations not only in rome but for florence (our next stop) as well! the even gave us an adaptor to keep. the music theme is great! makes you feel at home being able to listen to music- not only in the bedroom but bathroom too- and the ipod even connects!
Cons: Only negative is the shower which doesn't have full glass and water would spray on the floor (oh well?).

 "Interesting and different quirky hotel - liked it a lot plus all the little..."
Pros: Interesting and different quirky hotel - liked it a lot plus all the little extras in the room.
Cons: Breakfast wasn't much to write home about - simple continental. everyone was confused with what to do / how to get a coffee - the person helping each day didn't say a word to you!
the rooms were looking slightly shabby and well used. you could start seeing this after the first 'wow' impression.
location of hotel also bit far out - had to use the metro to get anywhere but the vatican.

Pros: We really liked this hotel it was very clean and quirky..breakfast was really nice we had a small courtyard to sit in which was nice and we abused the free mini bar. really liked the cd player in the room it created a nice ambiance whilst we were planning our day ahead. the location was good as there was some live jazz bars and nice restaurants close by.
