We booked this hotel for our last night in Italy as a treat to compensate for seeing the end of our vacation. Information about the hotel can be found and reservations can made at their website at: www.nxtbook.com/nxtbooks/questex/hoteleden/index.php.Hotel Eden (pronounced Ed-in) is the most over the top luxury hotel where we have stayed. Tons of little extras in the room, like an overnight bag with toothbrush, comb and razor, and lots of attention from the staff, like when I ask to use the Internet, I get walked through the entire process of logging on. Yet it costs less than some Manhattan hotels we've stayed at.However, everything else is an additional cost: Internet use, telephone calls. The room we booked was a deluxe king, but this one had a separate sitting room. I don’t know if that was standard or an upgrade.The windows opened and provided a great view especially since we had a corner room. The bed was very comfortable and both rooms were impeccably clean. I would have liked to import the bathroom, all in marble, to my home. It was spacious and beautiful. It had heated towel racks, lots of light, spacious counters and thicks towels and bathrobes.At night, turn down service not only included chocolates, but also slippers and a mat beside the bed.The public areas were very luxurious and the hotel bar and restaurant, La Terrazza, were top notch. (My review of them is a separate entry.)Lots of staff around to help with anything and everything. Great central location close to the Spanish Steps and high end shopping.An unbelievable luxury experience.
