You can almost feel the la dolce vita running through this ancient Roman Palazzo - as if Anita Ekberg would be likely to stroll by at any moment doing her famous dance. For this is pure Roma, nestled as it is in the heart of medieval "Trastevere," one of the most authentic and characteristic areas of Rome.
It is also only a few steps from the River Tiber and close by to some of Rome’s most famous landmarks, including the Coliseum, Campo dei Fiori market, the Ghetto, the Pantheon and Piazza Navona. All you have to do is stroll along the Tiber Bridge and basically you’re there.
As for the Arco de Tolomei itself, the inside has been fully restored to a cosy standard, the intimacy of a private palazzo mixed with the comforts of a small hotel.
Rooms are individually styled and furnished with family pieces passed down through the generations. Each room also comes with a private balcony, a great little touch.
Very pleasant stay, charming hosts, delightful quiey location on the edge of bustling Dorsoduro, highly recommended as a delightful alternative to big commercial hotels

Wir waren mit 2 Personen 4 Nächte in diesem liebevoll ausgestatteten Guesthouse. Mit dem Service und dem Frühstück waren wir sehr zufrieden, allerdings ging aus den Vorinformationen weder hervor, dass das Zimmer Aurelia sehr dunkel ist und damit für einen Aufenthalt am Tage eigentlich ungeeignet , noch dass außerdem die versprochene Terasse mit "privado" gekennzeichnet ist.
