an Oasis of calm in a very busy city

First ever visit to Rome -- fabulous city but incredibly busy with teeming hordes of tourists (like us) - some clearly there to admire the history and features - others there to make life as difficult as possible for the first group (well - maybe not but it seemed that way at times!!)
The Hotel Canada however was the perfect place to stay - not far from the attractions of Rome with easy access to Metro/Bus routes if preferred to walking. Quiet hotel with fabulous decor in the public rooms and our bedroom was first class - a small seating area leading to a king sized bed which was very comfortable. The en-suite facilities were spotless.
Breakfast was wonderful and superb value at €6 per head -- don't even bother looking elsewhere.
The bar area was quiet (with one exception) with friendly helpful bar staff and again amazingly priced compared to other places -- €2 for a bottled beer -- €7 for a full sized bottle of Frascati -- my wife loved it.
no need to lookk elsewhere - this hotel is perfect for a Rome visit at a very reasonable price.
The one exception at the bar was amazing --- a very happy American lady (with her friends) had clearly enjoyed the well priced wine and decided to "face time" her pal back in USA. She proceeded to tell her US pal (and anyone else in a 500 metre radius) about how wonderful Italy was and in particular Rome. Her and her friends then got highly excited waxing lyrical about the guide they had on their "golf cart" tour of the city... I think he was called Roberto, was 32 years old and had the most amazing "buns" -- (I guess they missed out on breakfast....lol). They all loudly agreed that they could have..... Hmmmm.... less
