"First visit to Rome"
Our first visit to Rome and after researching various hotels we decided on Le Stanze di Orazio. On arrival we were met by the owner who couldn't have been more pleasant and helpful, showing us the hotels facilities.
There is a lift from the ground floor, but its quicker to take the stairs. The building itself is used by other businesses and apartments, but it never felt unsafe.
The room itself was fantastic (Room No.11), very clean and well maintained. The bed was soft, but comfortable, and the bedding clean, with extra pillows in the wardrobe. Plenty of tea and coffee making facilities, although there was no milk. But there is a supermarket about 100m down the main street, so no real problem. Bathroom was great, very clean, with plenty of towels. Good small safe bolted to the wall inside the wardrobe, great for passports, cash/credit cards, tablets and cameras, but not big enough for a laptop. Not that you would want to spend much time using a laptop in Rome!
The hotel is on the first floor, above a small clothing store. The only real noise was from the traffic and the rubbish collection which was at 3:00am on Monday morning. Even though I'm a light sleeper, the noise was never a problem after a day spent walking around the city. Breakfast was served from 08:30am and was always delicious, with plenty of choice.
My wife and I thoroughly recommend this hotel, the staff were great and friendly, and the location was perfect. Would stay there again.
