Here's the undeniable asset of this hotel: the breakfast buffet (included in the price of the room) served all year long in a bright, well-aired place, with a view of the whole of Rome. You must head straight for the converted restaurant on the roof - the bay windows offer a view as far as the Vatican. From April to October, tables are also laid out on the rest of the terrace so you can eat outside. The American-style buffet includes hot and cold dishes (scrambled eggs, yoghurts, cold cuts, bread rolls, croissants, fresh fruit). There is no lunch service, but some good close-by restaurants such as Da Vincenzo, on via Castelfidardo: a true Roman inn, in which you have to be a local to know what to order. We recommend the linguine with cockles (roughly £13) with some white wine: succulent! Then the Marcella's restaurant is open again for dinner. Try it when the sun is setting, for the view. The simple menu has only a few hot dishes to offer, as well as salads and sandwiches (from around £9 to £14). If you don't like stuffed rabbit, go for the bolognese; if you have bad memories of minced meat, opt for the spinach pancakes; if you hate spinach, there is still a possibility of beef, but that's it!
