Roman Holiday. Part One.

Why I Loved Hotel Manfredi

 

1. The Location.

Heidi and Iย  scored an amazing deal and while it was still a splurge, it was SO WORTH IT!!! Why? Located on the Via Margutta, we were right between the Spanish Steps and Piazza del Popolo. It is beautiful, charming andย  feels very safe. There is a metro station a stone’s throw away (Spagna), yummy food and Fatamorgana Gelato.

2. Free Wifi in the Room.

I thought this would be important but didnโ€™t realize how easy it would make things. No wandering down the streets looking for cafeโ€™s or sitting awkwardly in the hotel lobby, trying to connect.

 

3. The Lobby/Breakfast area.

The lobby/breakfast area of the Hotel Manfredi is lovely. I struggled with jet lag the first 4 days. Having this area allowed me to get up early and have room to sit, read, journal and relax without feeling like I was going to wake Heidi.

4. The Breakfast.

5. The Staff. Lydia. Reno.
