For our first three nights in Rome, I selected a Hotel based on location and value for money, and that is Hotel SanÁngelo right behind Castel Sant Ángelo and within walking distance of Vatican City, the Tiber River, street markets, bus stops and numerous incredible coffee shops and restaurants.
It comprises of rooms in two magnificent buildings of which we are booked into the Annex, or New Angel. Rooms are small with all amenities, private bathrooms, lovely big windows looking onto the courtyard and free wireless internet. Rate for pre-booking is very good and I love all the little specialist shops to be found along the street. I booked without breakfast as we are opting to try different coffee shops each morning in a bid to diversify the experience. Location is everything to me in a big city.
Oh, and I think it may just have the oldest cage lift I’ve ever been in, charming in the extreme, albeit a little terrifying … Needless to say I’m mostly walking up to the Fourth Floor.
This is the inside once you’ve closed cage and doors. Let’s say mostly I’m walking up and down to the 5th floor.
