The moment the White Taxi started to roll, the driver said he would charge us 60 Euro to the hotel. It is printed on a board at the airport that it is supposed to be 48 Euro. That is why we took the White Taxi. But we did not want to argue with the Taxi Driver to ruin our Roman Holiday! When we complained to the hotel manager, they called the White Taxi company. They could not get to them, so the hotel gave us 10 Euro -- "We want you to have a positive memory of Rome." Somebody loves Rome as all Romans should, especially the Taxi Drivers. We walked everywhere from the hotel, that is how close it is to all important sites. We loved it so much that we would always stay in this hotel.
My sister and I decided to stay in Rome for a full week and do day trips from there, rather than change hotels every couple of days. Since we were staying 7 nights, the hotel upgraded our room at no charge and gave us a slightly larger room and bed with a great view overlooking the Pantheon. We were very impressed with the service we received and very happy with the location and the beautifully and simply decorated hotel. We took advantage of the spa located on the 2nd floor, enjoying massages and a Turkish bath.
From this hotel we were able to walk just about everywhere we wanted to go within about 15-20 minutes. We took a bus to the Colosseum on our first day, but realized that it really wasn't that far and walked back. From then on, we walked just about everywhere. Piazza Navona is only minutes away, and Piazza del Popolo and Trastevere are about 15 minutes away in opposite directions on foot. It really is a very central location. The only downside to this fantastic location is that it is also the centre of all things tourist-driven, and so it can be fairly expensive to eat nearby. It is worth walking the 15 minutes to Trastevere or another nearby neighbourhood for most meals to get away from the tourist prices. That said, it was a lot of fun to sit outside at the restaurant downstairs (Scusate Il Ritardo) and sip a glass of wine while looking up at the Pantheon.
Our week at the Royal Pantheon Suite was as close to perfect as I've had in any hotel. Highly recommended!
"Centrally located within walking distance of all"
Staff helpful and informative. Rooms are decent size for european standards with updated bathrooms. chose this boutique hotel b/c of location and reviews and were not disappointed. breakfast included every morning was important that we didn't have to run out anywhere to get food/coffee first thing. If ever back in Rome, would stay here again
This hotel was in the absolute perfect location - so close and walkable from lots of great restaurants and all the major historical sites, taxi stand one block up and major bus routes stopping right outside the door. I can't say enough good things about the location - it made our stay in Rome very pleasant and easy. The hotel itself is nice, clean and comfortable. Not overly luxurious but I'd compare it to any other 3 star hotel and it would come out ahead. Hotel staff were very helpful.

We had a lovely stay at the hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the rooms were clean and comfortable, and the location was perfect. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Rome. I would jump at the chance to return!
"Modern classic accomodation in a great location."
The staff were very helpful upon checking in, offering advice about locals eats, tourist site locations and 'must see' areas while we were visiting Rome. The room, as we expected, was in an adjoining building to reception and up 7 flights of stairs - great for quietness and the terrace view, not ideal for those with lots of luggage or tired legs at the end of the day! The rooms are comfortable, modern and clean, with great airconditioning, lighting and natural light. The interior design aligns modern amenities with original historical elements of the 1000yr old building in a very stylish manner. Breakfast is included - however the 'buffet' mentioned in the booking information should better be described as 1 hot beverage and a plain croissant at a local cafe upon presentation of a coupon. This made eating breakfast on our lovely terrace a little Inconvenient. Checking out was easy and we were able to store our bags all day until our evening departure.

In the heart of the historic centre, Piazza Navona is Rome’s most famous square. Like a giant stage set, this is where the theatre of daily Roman life is re-enacted among the café tables that spill out onto the fountain-splashed piazza. Bernini’s baroque extravaganza, the Fontana dei Quattro Fiume, is the most celebrated of the three fountains. Nearby is the Pantheon – one of Rome’s great symbols and a marvel of ancient architecture.
