Though the Milton is not in the middle of things it is only a short crosswalk outside the doors to Manzoni Metro station that can take you direct to the Vatican (8 stops and about 15 minitues) or with a change at Termini to the colisieum, palatine hill, etc.(closer to half hour due to train change. We had a superior room and it was perfect with a king size bed, large flat screen TV, a couple of chairs and a love seat. The bathroom was a bit small but had both shower/bath and a place to wash your feet! Just kidding the bidet in the room was ok but had they left it out you would have had more room. There was even a drying rack in the tub area which came in real handy after getting caught in the rain. Normally hotel room coffee is just so so but here it was very good with a Kuerig kind of machine and great coffees along with various teas.
The breakfast was great and the coffee in the breakfast room was even better. Just ask one of the ladies and they will bring you an expresso or a capachino. My coffee was from the machine with two short blacks mixed with one American coffee. Two of those and it will take you no time to get across town! Awesome pastries, great eggs and lots of fruit will get your day started.
We actually ate dinner in the lounge a couple of nights and we highly recommended the eggplant! There is a small place about 40 meters from the front door (Bistro 33) that had some awesome food and great service. Family operated and a very good menu. It can get pricey if you go for appetizers, wine, and desert with dinner but this isn't micky d's so be prepared to pay more while getting your taste buds excited.
A small pizza shop is also just down the street the other direction and when you walk in you will be confronted with a lot of choices. He has an entire display of all his pizza's calzones and more. You point at what you want tell him how much and he weighs it tells you how much and then heats it up. There are only about 6 high chairs to sit in but well worth the experience and the pizza is NOT pizza hut or Little Ceasars!
One night we did a picnic in the room after going to a small store just across the street and down a bit. We had ham, several kinds of cheeses, artichokes, olives and fresh bread washed down with a local wine and a very tasty Italian beer. Made for another memorable experience!
The staff at the Milton was helpful in so many ways from giving advice to helping get a taxi after my wife began having some issues getting around. less
