We absolutely loved staying in this romantic and immaculately clean condo near Spanga. The bed felt like heaven! My husband and I felt like locals stepping out onto the street each morning with excellent shopping and great restaurants. The main taxi stand area for Spagna is only two blocks away, so we could always grab a cab but never had to worry about noise outside the window. Almost all of Rome is walkable from here and this seems to be the only street in the city free from beggars and guys selling junk on the street.
Each room is different. We loved number seven in the condo building (the proper hotel is across the street). It has high wood ceilings painted white, plenty of mirrors, two full bathrooms and a kitchenette. We were perfectly cosy and comfortable there. The second full bathroom would have been perfect if we had people sleeping on the sofa bed. Not much of a view, but that is to be expected anywhere in Rome.
Roberto responded to each of my emails expeditiously and he was very helpful in allowing me to choose the best room (they all have individually quirky style). He arranged for our driver from the airport and recommended some good restaurants nearby (Life has excellent food).
We met the owner once when we went to ask some questions at the main hotel and he stayed to chat with us and help plan an excursion to Amalfi for much more time than we expected. It felt like he really cared.
There is a buffet breakfast available in the main hotel, but we really loved the little French place two blocks away.
