History buffs will appreciate this small hotel, built atop the ruins of the 1st-century Theatre of Pompey, where on the Ides of March Julius Caesar was stabbed to death (p. ###). The atmospheric breakfast area is actually part of the old theater’s arcades, with original Roman walls. The large, simple rooms have an authentic feel, with wood-beam ceilings, cherrywood furniture, and terracotta-tiled floors. Some rooms overlook the internal courtyard, others face the small square; all are quiet, despite the Campo de’ Fiori crowds right behind the hotel. Staff members are extremely helpful. Tip: Avoid the Trattoria Der Pallaro restaurant next door; it’s a tourist trap.
