Its 22 well-maintained rooms feature air-conditioning, 42-inch flat-screen TVs, DVD players, and mini-fridges. Bathrooms are fitted with sophisticated massage showers, and some bathrooms have televisions inset into the bathroom mirror. Wi-Fi is free throughout the hotel, and guests can help themselves to free coffee and tea.

Al Viminale Hill Inn & Hotel

Scene

Neo-Classical building with a tiny lobby 

Al Viminale Hill Inn & Hotel is located in an imposing six-story Neo-Classical building on a square that's dominated by the Teatro dell'Opera di Roma. The hotel's reception area is a small high-ceilinged room on the ground floor just off the entrance: a cramped space crowded with a reception counter, two leather armchairs, a shelf unit lined with files, notice boards, and a large flat-screen TV. A marble staircase winds up six floors, which are also linked by the old-fashioned elevator. The guest rooms are located on the second, fourth, and sixth floors. Most guests who choose to stay here are couples traveling for leisure and looking for a moderately priced hotel with a convenient location in central Rome.

Rooms

Traditional rooms with high ceilings; most with views of the Opera House

Each of the high-ceiling guest rooms at Al Viminale Hill Inn & Hotel are decorated in a similar, classical style that's typical of many hotels in Rome. Impeccably clean and well-maintained, they're fitted with parquet flooring and custom made furniture painted in light beige tones. The lower half of the walls are covered in wood paneling of the same color, while the upper portions of the walls are painted a shell-pink. Murals behind the bed depict romantic scenes of ancient Rome. But some may find the decor here to be old fashioned and even frumpy, and scarlet bedspreads, curtains, and upholstery could either be read as grand or grandmotherly. Many of the guest rooms have views that overlook the square and Opera House directly opposite.

Each room features air-conditioning, a 42-inch flat-screen TV, DVD player, free Wi-Fi, mini-fridge, and safe. Noise-reducing windows and shutters are effective in diminishing street noise. Bathrooms take a modern detour with Bisazza mosaic tiling covers in tones of beige and brown and clear-glass round vessel sinks. Shower stalls are fitted with sophisticated-looking massage showers and rainwater showerheads. Other handy extras include towel warmers and hairdryers. Some bathrooms have double sinks and TVs inset into the mirrors.
