When in Rome: Hotel Napoleon!

Our own John Lane recently returned from a Mediterranean cruise onboard Oceania Marina; his impressions and experiences continue……

In the center of Rome, there is a hidden gem of a hotel called Hotel Napoleon.  The Cioce family runs this 75 room hotel within walking distance to the Coluseum. 

Hotel Napoleon

Apon arrival you are graciously greeted by Roberto, the Conceirge and he welcomes you and takes care of your needs while your room is being prepared for your stay.  I was immediately taken to the breakfast room to enjoy the morning buffet of fresh rolls, pastries, breads, cheeses, meats, eggs, bacon, cereal and of course hot coffee.  It is a small room seating about 40 to 50 and it was a popular spot.  The breakfast is included in your price. 

The rooms are tastefully done in light shades of blue, yellows and greens.  Mine was quite spacious with a sitting area, flat screen TV, safe,

Tasteful, European decor

mini refrigerator, walk in closet and two sets of balcony doors that opened to a courtyard.  The bathrooms were brand new with marble floors and counter tops, towel warmers, a large shower with rain head shower and very nice toiletries. 

On the second floor of the hotel a large spacious sitting room offers a large flat screen TV, a computer with free internet service a lounge offering drinks and restaurant that is open for dinner nightly offering Italian cuisine.

The Napoleon is a great hotel in a city where pricing for hotels is outrageous.  The rates are much lower and the personalized service (you are always addressed by your name) makes your stay even much nicer and you feel like you are at home.
