This hotel was wonderful! As soon as we walked into the hotel, the bellman, concierge and people at the reception desk were attentive & friendly. Unfortunately, there was a misunderstanding between our taxi & us...and the hotel took the responsibility upon themselves & upgraded to a suite! We were thrilled! We stayed in the suite wing of the hotel & the room was beautiful! It even had a fresco behind our bed. The room had every amenity imaginable. Turn down service included complimentary slippers placed on a mat next to the bed and a thoughtful hand-written note from the staff with the weather forecast (very helpful) for the next day. The bathroom was spacious & had a rain (ceiling) showerhead. The fitness room was well appointed with exercise equipment, towels, sauna & mini refrigerator with cold water bottles. We had dinner on the top floor restaurant, La Terrazza. The food was good but the service was absolutely impeccable. This is the only restaurant that I have been to that they actually place a side table for the woman to place her purse during dining. The view from the restaurant is breath-taking! I would DEFINITELY stay at this hotel again. Location - it is a 3-5 minute walk to Villa Borghese, 5 minute walk to the top of the Spanish Steps, 7 minute walk to the Trevi Fountain. Hotel Eden would definitely be my first choice to stay in Rome. We also stayed at the Intercontinental and was not as impressed with that hotel, as we were with Hotel Eden.
