Charming small hotel in a perfect location May 28, 2008
The "Hotel Scalinata di Spagna" is right at the top of the Spanish Steps. It's a typical small European hotel; the kind we prefer. My wife, Linda, had been writing to the hotel and had been getting e-mails from “Fabio”. It turns out there are two Fabios so we tagged them Fabio Uno and Fabio Due. Both were great and we were made very much at home.

Our friends and we had two excellent but very different rooms. Theirs, Number 10, is large with a balcony from which there is an oblique view of the steps. Ours, Number 15, is much smaller but has both a balcony (no view of the steps) and a terrace with a small table and 2 chairs. Our room was of more typical European size (read: "small") but the terrace is great. Also thrown in is a view of the dome of Saint Peter’s in the middle distance. The only small problem was that the terrace adjoins the hotel’s rooftop garden and there is only a lattice between them so, with our door open, there is a perfect view of our bed from the rooftop garden! So much for privacy when the terrace doors are open! The hotel itself is quite nice. Typical of small hotels in Europe, the air conditioning was not capable of getting the room as cool as we Americans like it but let's face it, we're not the most energy-responsible people in the world. Before our stay was over, we pretty much gave up on it and relied on the excellent cross-ventilation. The hotel has free wireless Internet and, since I had my laptop along, that was a blessing. I believe they said there was also a shared computer somewhere but I'm not sure of that so if it's important to you, you should check.

There was a very pleasant breakfast room with its own terrace just adjacent to our room. The excellent continental breakfast was included in the room price. From both the breakfast room and terrice, there is a great view of the dome of St. Peter's. You can eat on the terrace but you have to protect your food from the seagulls!

If you want a huge, "International" hotel that will make you think you're in New York, this isn't for you. If you want to feel like you're really in Europe, it's great. I'd be happy to stay at this hotel again.
