I've been coming to Rome for 29 years now so I've seen my share of hotels there. This one ranks right near the top of my list.
First of all the location. Rome is a big city, so there is no "best" location to stay. But, the neighbourhood around the Largo Argentina happens to be my favourite. Kame Hall is just a step away from this lovely square and Piazza Mattei is literally 10 steps from the front door. Buses, the tram, taxis: everything is close. The Forum Romanum, Jewish Quarter, Pantheon, Tiber River: it's all no more than a 10 minutes walk. If you're looking to stay near the Pizza di Spagna and its shopping area, perhaps this is not your best location in Rome though.
This is not a typical hotel as there is no permanent staff. You get an access code in advance and your key is ready for you after you climb the stairs to the first floor. Breakfast is served in the room. You can fill out a form the night before with your breakfast wishes. There are many places to eat close to the hotel too, of course.
There are only four rooms. The room I was assigned was very pleasant. It was slightly larger than I'm used to in Rome. The airco was working perfectly. As I was in Rome during a brutal heat wave, this was rather important.
I slept very well in the comfortable beds. The shower was excellent!
If I have to find a negative thing to say it would perhaps be the wifi, which in itself was fine when it worked. But the signal dropped for a few minutes every hour or so. Then again, with mobile data roaming charges abolished within the EU this didn't matter to me as much as it would have in the past.
Not only would I return to Kame Hall, next time in Rome I probably will. This was a very pleasant experience in my favourite city in the world.
