Drumroll....I finally decided on a Roman Hotel!

Jump to last reply

For those of you following and graciously assisting with the Rome portion of our August Italian trip, I finally booked a place. The initial plan of getting a suite or apartment within a hotel did not pan out well
(Modigliani was fully booked, Hotel Forum wasn't in an area I ultimately wanted, Domus Internazionale was on the Spanish Steps and I wanted to be away from them etc...) so I narrowed it down to wanting to be near the Piazza Navona and then after talking to people at the hotels realized that I might like the Piazza Rotunda even a bit more. I was all set to book the Albergo del Senato but was off-put by both people with whom I spoke when I called the hotel on two separate occasions. A bit condescending and one was borderline rude. Not the warm reception I was expecting. The Santa Chiara seemed a bit too bare bones, but the Hotel Abruzzi right behind the del Senato seemed promising based on the reviews I read. When I called the hotel, the very warm and gracious clerk, Manuel, who assisted me, made me feel so welcome and the rates were right for four nights: 724euro for my parents' double and 927euro for our junior suite for three, both with views of the Pantheon and full breakfast. I took the standard rate so I am able to cancel 72 hours in advance. It's not the Russie or Minerve but it seems nice enough. Now to to try to book a food tour with Elizabeth Minchilli!

Thanks for all your help.
