First time visitor in Rome, the hotel is about a 15 Min walk to the Termini, the rooms were very comfortable and the provided a good breakfast every morning. Some great places to eat around which were not to expensive.

Not as central as we'd hoped

Good value spotless clean. Our room was great but our friends rooms were very small. Breakfast was good. It's about a 15 - 20 minute walk to nearest metro though so be prepared for that. Staff helpful.

Good, Great, Loved It!

Basically, it's exceptional for overall experience given its price. The staff were very helpful and warm, and we found the hotel quite good in terms of facilities, amenities, location etc. The breakfast is also very good and varied. You need to take the metro two stops from Termini, but being away from the centre has advantages. Namely better food and less tourist traps. We had a great time in Rome, and a major contributor to the experience was definitely the hotel. Would recommend without reservation.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Tip: There is a proper, family pizza place across the street and around the corner (Via Giovanni Mingazzini). Patronised by locals, it's a gem. Also try the gelatiera across the street. YUM!

Good Value, but location just OK.

A bit noisy (street, and rooms). Clean and spacious room for European standards. Location is a bit far of a walk from most monuments. Metro Station is about 10 min walk. Decent breakfast. Good value for money. I would recommend if trying to save a few bucks.

Great family adventure in Rome

We spent 3 nights here and did siteseeing in Rome. The room and bathroom were clean and spacious. We liked the hardwood floor. The AC worked well and was quiet. The complimentary cold water, juice, and sodas in the fridge were refreshing. The slippers were a nice pampering touch. The breakfast with the wide variety was fantastic. It included apricots, my favorite fruit, cheeses, pastries, and great coffees. The staff was friendly and helpful. They arranged a cab to the airport. We loved the refreshments in the lobby throughout the day. The major historical sights were easily accesible by public transportation. The best gelato and good pizza was available just steps from the hotel. Our best hotel experience.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Buy the Roma Pass and use it for public transportation, including metro, bus, and tram, to get to the famous sites. It also serves as a ticket to two museums of your choice (e.g. Colosseum).

Was great for my conference

I was attending a conference at Sapienza university, and the hotel is located just next to it. So it was in a really good location for my conference. From the hotel to the most famous parts of the city you should use metro, which a metro station is in like 10 minutes walking from the hotel. I remember it took around 30 minutes from the hotel to Colosseum (including the walking to the metro station), and around 45~50 minutes to Vatican city. It may sound a bit far from them, but it was not difficult. There are coffee places around the hotel which we spent some evenings there with friends. The breakfasts were good, but nothing so special. But I liked that there were some fruits as well. AC was working without any problem, which is essential for summer in Rome.

Good price. Close to a Metro station which makes for convenient access to most of the "must see" sights. Good breakfast. Helpful staff. Good sized room.

Great Hotel

My friends and I enjoyed staying here for a night. It was a great hotel and very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was great and the staff was very friendly! The metro station is close to the hotel which helps with transportation. I would recommend staying here if you don't mind traveling by metro!

Never Again...Beware, Thieves...

Although my previous experience with this website has been positive, they surprisingly have misled consumers with the only provided photo of the bathroom of this hotel. Our family reserved the "Family Room," which included two king beds, but provided with an entirely different bathroom than from what was advertised. Aside from the room inexplicably always having smelled of an exploded sewer, other concerns include being prepared to walk up a flight of steps with your luggage upon entry into this hotel, as they apparently have no practicality or regard for the handicapped or elderly, as well as a graffiti lined surrounding neighborhood, far from the more beautified areas of Rome. But these issues were the least of our concerns. The housekeeping staff was enjoying pilfering our belongings through out our stay while shamelessly collecting daily tips left for their "professional services" in burglary. From having had busy, full days spent touring, inspecting our belongings within the room upon returning in the evening had not been a priority, having been rather exhausted. This was, afterall, allegedly a "vacation," not a nightly surveillance inspection. What a mistake that was....Although my mother had noticed particular items, including a newly purchased premium designer sunglasses case (containing her old sunglasses, thankfully not her new sunglasses) and calendar, missing during our stay, she assumed they would later be found when having more time to search for the items. Having been pressed to meet for paid tours, there simply wasn't time to search thoroughly for the missing items. She had assumed, as well, having left several Euros each day as tips to the housekeeping staff, safeguarded her to some extent from possible theft. Not only had they been enjoying the tips left specifically for them each day, they unabashedly stole not only my mother's belongings, but a favorite shirt of mine as well upon later inspection. Amazingly, the housekeeping staff took their ample time, even leaving a thank you note for the daily tips while stealing. I would strongly caution anyone from staying at this hotel, as they are unconscienable thieves. Unless you want to spend your vacation burglarized of your favorite belongings, do not stay here, as there are no redeeming qualities to this hotel.

Awful please avoid!!

My family and I booked 2 rooms for " family room 2 king beds" I had the booking company call and I called myself 2 days before arriving because we were arriving at 11pm. They not only did have our rooms ready but didn't even have the rooms we paid and booked for. They were extremely rude and not helpful at all. The next morning we asked to be moved to the rooms that we had booked and paid for in advanced. They moved us but again not the 2 king beds we had paid for. One room had a queen bed and a sofa bed. The other had 2 queen beds # BEWARE they do not have the listed "family room 2 king beds"# Our room had not WiFi for the entire 5 days. We called every day asking them to fix it and their answer was " wait 15mins, 30 mins 1hour.. etc) anything to put you off. I had work to do and couldn't anything done all 5 days. The location is horrible. It is a 5-10 min walk to the metro but it is a residential area and at least a 3-4 stop away from anywhere worthwhile. Horrible location. DONT STAY HERE! I made of the mistake of thinking it was an American chain but they should be embarrassed and ashamed to have their name associated with this hotel. We had 2 kids # 10 & 12 y/o# and 4 adults. We all hated this hotel and we so glad to leave it.
