This is by far the coolest hotel l ever I have stayed at! If you get the chance, you MUST go there. Everything was amazing, and after a 5 course's, I experienced a good night's sleep in a comfortable bed. The only pointer I can give them is: lf they are looking for a Michelin star, the waiters need a little more training (not that it was bad but still).

Pretty hotel but unfortunately awful food Breakfast was pretty boring. We bought the 5-course dinner (vegetarian). Only the starter and the dessert was delicious. Rest of it was not very tastefull and we didn’t finish our dishes because they didn’t taste very well. We told the waiter who offered us a toast after the dinner if we were still hungry. Seemed a bit like they were use to costumers being unhappy about the food. Conclusion. Visit to see the decorations but find another place to eat. The food and wine is highly overpriced for what your get.

A truly remarkable experience - the atmosphere, the food, not to mention the great service! We cannot wait to come back!

2 aspects of our visit stood out: The attentiveness of the service from first arrival, through dinner and then breakfast was excellent. What the staff lack in years, they more than make up in attitude and knowledge. Secondly, the quality of the food was superb, the 5 course dinner was excellent and adapted very well to vegan and vegetarian requirements without losing out. Breakfast was also very different from the average hotel fare, but again very tasty. Our room in the pavilion was comfortable and the whole interior design needs to be seen to be appreciated.

Stayed here two nights as a mini honeymoon and they graciously upgraded our room. The food is incredible here, and the hospitality is so warm. The surroundings are lovely and there’s a great hiking path around the lake.

Santa Maria in Trastevere

The Basilica of Santa Maria in Trastevere is one of the oldest churches of Rome. The basic floor plan and wall structure of the church date back to the 340s, and much of the structure to 1140-43. The first sanctuary was built in 221 and 227 by Pope Callixtus I and later completed by Pope Julius I. 

The inscription on the episcopal throne states that this is the first church in Rome dedicated to Mary, mother of Jesus, although some claim that privilege belongs to the Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore. A Christian house-church was founded here about 220 by Pope Saint Callixtus I (217-222) on the site of the Taberna meritoria, a refuge for retired soldiers. The area was made available for Christian use by Emperor Alexander Severus when he settled a dispute between the Christians and tavern-keepers.

The church underwent two restorations in the fifth and eighth centuries and in 1140-43 it was re-erected on its old foundations under Pope Innocent II.
