The 64 room Donna Laura Palace is located downtown between the river Tiber and Vatican City and just a few minutes walk from San Peter's Basilica and only 500 meters from the closest subway station (Lepanto Station). The hotel boasts a wonderful garden terrace with views of the eternal flow of the Tiber which guests can use as a solarium during the day and as an al fresco format for evening dining. Facilities include a gym with sauna, Jacuzzi, and fitness area with treadmills and free weights. Rooms have been carefully designed and are nicely sized and come with modern technology like Wi-Fi and satellite, small refrigerator, safe, ample storage space, marble bathroom with bidet and deep bathtub for soothing the travel wearied body. There are some great non-touristy restaurants just outside the hotel door streetside.
