Was too warm in the breakfast area. If the place is full, make sure you get to the buffet breakfast earlier rather than later as the kitchen is not supervised during breakfast and there may not be food left.
This could be a home-away-from-home. Michele was such a great host from the first day. He gave us great ideas for eating and sightseeing even after we have seen (or thought have seen) everything. He gave us ideas on other places that we may have missed.
He also anticipated that we may be hungry for other than Italian food so he gave suggestions on other eateries near the area.
The rooms are assigned with names corresponding to Roman landmarks. We stayed in "the Coliseum" (I think) which was by the entrance and away from the kitchen. This was handy since we didn't get the noise from the breakfast area at 8 am.
The bed was King-size and so comfortable and the room was furnished with all modern amenities. The pillows (4) were fantastic and a good size. What you may expect from the Fairmont Hotel.
Other pluses: locked safe, bar fridge with complimentary water/juice and snacks on arrival. This was a nice touch. Elevator access is also there. The building stays cool so walking out of the humidity and into a cool building and room is always nice.
The only downfall which wasn't a deal-breaker is the lack of soundproofing (so you hear doors banging, people talking in the common areas, but not in their rooms). That being said, this sound issue seems to be common in most places we have stayed in due to the construction of the building. No street or outside noise since all the external windows are updated to modern standards. Good-size shower too.
Breakfast is typical of B&B food, but the tables were all nicely laid out with enough tables and chairs. Each even got its own colour-coded table cloth and cups. It is a self-serve buffet style with juices, milk, yogurt, cereal, cheese, prosciutto, etc.
The location is literally a two-minute walk to the Metro station (RED line) which takes you to all the landmarks worth seeing.
