They never took us in, had an excuse about pipes, true or not I do not know. Because I booked only for 1 night, maybe they didn't want to bather with us, I have no clue and no way to verify. Rick Steve recommend them, but he shouldn't. They walked us in much cheaper hotel Re Testa, we survived but we never do that again. Women at the desk had no patience for us. If u r booking Re Testa don't ask many questions at the desk, she gets very short with you, it was not nice area around and it was very strange hotel.
We had booked a cruise from Rome. Before cruise we stayed in Albergo Del Santiago hotel for 2 days near Pantheon, that's the place to stay! Classy place. Good service, great rooms, great people. I would stay in this one any time I am in Rome.
Aventino it's another case. Seems nice area but we had no chance to experience that. I plan everything ahead, this hotel suppose to be close to Colosseum and we had tour to do, when they moved us, we were farther away. I say you live you learn. It could of been great experience with them, but it never happened. I can't recommend them. But by appearance it was ok, but Albergo Del Santiago is the place to stay. Nearby many streets full of restaurants and shops. On the roof great bar to relax with great Chianti and a view. But best part people are so helpful and caring all the time and very professional. Rooms very outstanding!
