“Champagne Wishes and Caviar Dreams” on a budget?
Introducing Rome’s Best Kept Secret
Suites at Hotel Mediterraneo
Rome, Italy, February 5, 2015…Imagine sipping Prosecco on your private, spacious balcony overlooking an extraordinary view of Rome at a cost that does not break the bank. Hotel Mediterraneo, a Bettoja Hotel, has just such suites, some starting as low as 350 Euros.
The ten-story art-deco Mediterraneo Hotel, (tallest$ hotel in the walled city of Rome), is the flagship of the Bettoja Hotels, and stands on Esquilino, – the tallest of Rome’s seven hills in the city’s center. There are seven luxurious Presidential Suites on the top floor, all with large balconies, two with corner balconies. Each has been carefully designed and decorated by a member of the Bettoja family giving close attention to comfort and style. All have a different décor with luxury bathrooms, Jacuzzi tubs… In one living room, a lovely “still life” painting hangs over a comfortable couch of deep green brocade; a yellow Chinese alcove adjoins the bedroom which opens unto a flowered lined terrace framing a view of the city. All 10th floor suites have terraces trellised with shrubs, flowers and views – one of St. Peter’s… Some say they are the best suites in the city and certainly the best value.
Also on the top floor is the Rooftop Garden Restaurant, which has a retractable roof that opens in the summer. From its terrace, there is nearly a 360 degree view of Rome…from St. Peter’s to St Mary Major to the Appenines. A generous breakfast of eggs, fruit, croissants, cappuccino is reserved for those guests in superior or suite rooms and is included in the price. It is a perfect way to start the day in the Roman sunshine. In the evenings, the terrace is open for cocktails and dinner.
If your budget is not Presidential, the Mediterraneo also has Junior Suites, without balconies, but equally as spacious and offering the same amenities.
Not only are the suites some of the best rooms in Rome, the location of Hotel Mediterraneo couldn’t be better; within walking distance of the Colosseum, Opera House, Forum, Trevi Fountain and Spanish Steps. The Stazione Termini, convenient for day excursions to Florence or Naples, is a few blocks away. It is perfectly situated for exploring the eternal city by metro, bus or foot.
Hotel Mediterraneo is part of The Bettoja Hotel group which also includes Hotel Atlantico, and Massimo D’Azeglio. They are all within a block of each other; The Atlantico inter-connects with the Hotel Mediterraneo. There are three fine restaurants, Massimo D’Azeglio, Restaurant “21” and the Rooftop Terrace. The Bettoja Hotels tradition of good food and warm personal service has continued through five generations. Many of the present staff is second, even third generation. The family and staff have not wavered from their promise to maintain high standard and good value.
