My Favorite Hotel in Rome
The Hotel Teatro Pace opened a few years ago in the most perfect location. Two steps from Piazza Navona, in the heart of the "Centro Storico" or historical center of Rome
Even my single room was large by Rome standards -- a six by eight foot entry with large armoire -- then a step up into the main room with parquet wood floors in a herringbone pattern, a bed "alla francese" or a single bed, half again as wide as usual, making it very comfortable, a mini-bar, a matching chest with four drawers, tv, and a wall safe. Then a small alcove behind the main room, with a large window, a writing desk and chair, and a table with an electric hot kettle and the necessary coffees and teas.
The bathroom! Absolutely drop dead gorgeous! Richly colored gold and gray marble floor, matched to a more sedate cream marble, topped with a soft yellow washed plaster. A shower with lots of hot water, great water pressure.
Look up -- the timbered ceiling must be 5 meters high! It isn't necessary to talk about cleanliness -- everything is spotless. And it's a hotel with a sense of humor. Check out their FAQ page in English! Roberto and Fabrizio were wonderful hosts.
I loved everthing about this hotel -- but you might want to know that...
There is no desk service between 9 p.m. and 8 a.m. in the morning -- so it's more like a B&B. Don't lose the key to your room and the front door!
No elevator. This meant 70 steps up the elegant, huge spiral stone staircase. More if you?re on the top floor. There is no breakfast room (yet) so breakfast is served in your room -- you fill out a short form the night before, and the local coffee bar brings you your cornetto (croissant), coffee or tea, and orange juice precisely on time every morning. They were amazingly punctual.
Also, although I normally take the #64 bus from the main train station (Termini) to get to the hotel, I don't necessarily recommend it. It's notoriously filled with pickpockets, so take good care of your posessions if you do. You could also take the #40 express. Get off both buses at Largo Argentina. A metered taxi from Termini should cost about 7-10 euros depending on day and time.
Unique Quality: Location! Location! Location! Reasonable prices. The elegant stone circular staircase.
Directions: As you face the church Sant'Agnese in Agone in the Piazza Navona, take the street just to the right (Via di Tor Millina). Turn left at the butcher shop on tiny Via del Teatro Pace. The entrance is a beautiful wood door on the right in about 50 meters.
Rome Best Hotel
We had three rooms in Sept at Hotel Teatro Pace 33 in Rome. We give it a Five star rating for price, location, friendliness, helpfulness and cleanliness. Three minute walk to Piazza Navonne in the center of Rome. Rooms are small but modern with wall safe and air conditioned. No elevator but the 14th century staircase is worth it. All our rooms were on the first floor. European breakfast served in your room. You will be very very happy with this Hotel.
Directions: Piazza Navonne
