The boutique Mascagni Hotel is a chic hideaway, just off the Piazza della Repubblica, "one of Rome's most impressive piazzas" according to Fodor's. The 6-storey building dates back to the 19th century but the interiors are up to date, with sleek armchairs in the lobby and funky modern art on the walls.
The hotel's location, a 10-minute walk from Rome's main station (Termini), makes the hotel a good option for stopovers and those arriving by train. The stately Piazza Barberini (where you'll find a fountain by Bernini) is not far, and the Via Veneto, made famous by the film ‘La Dolce Vita’, is also nearby.
The Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore, a UNESCO World Heritage site and one of Rome's best-known churches, is a 15-minute walk away. En route, be sure to explore the neighbourhood of Monti -- described as "a hive for up-and-coming artisans" by The New York Times, it's a good place to experience the locals' Rome, among the butchers, florists and trattorias.
There isn't a restaurant on site, but there is a rather swanky bar serving cocktails, coffee and light meals. A full buffet breakfast is also served from 6:30-10:30am daily, and the helpful staff will pack you a to-go bag if you've got an early start. They're just as accommodating when guests forget to pack essentials -- they'll provide shaving kits, toothbrushes and toothpaste for free (on request).
The stylish rooms are comfortable, if a little snug. Upgrade to a Superior room for a sofa and more space -- some even come with balconies. Larger family rooms are ideal for those travelling with kids, with Disney DVDs, wooden games, a colouring book and pencils and a kettle with herbal teas for mum and dad are all included. High chairs, baby strollers and cots are also available, on request.
