No problems. Good location

Good "no frills" option for the budget-minded traveler. Staff was friendly. Hotel was fairly quiet and felt safe. Room was small, but comparable to most hotels in the area. Clean room but outdated furniture and decor. Bed could be much better, but you don't go to Rome to sleep in, right??? One of the best parts of this hotel is the location. Easy access from Barberini station (subway) and very short walk to Spanish Steps and Trevi Fountain. Plenty of restaurants and nightlife available in walking distance.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

It's kind of tucked away, but I'd recommend Pisciapiano "gioia Mia" restaurant. Just a short walk away. Packed with locals and some tourists. Very authentic.

Not bad for price

Sight-seeing trip with friends. Location was very good as it was close to Trevi Fountain and Spanish Steps. Front desk was very friendly. Lovely terrace for added seating during the breakfast. Only problem with hotel was that the wallpaper in the rooms where we stayed either had a build-up of soot or of moisture/fungus. Ownership could do with some freshening up as it's not something the regular housekeeping staff could attend to.

Nice spot to home base for touring Rome

The hotel is close to the Metro, bus stops, restaurants and attractions. Bedding was clean and breakfast was great every morning. If you don't mind the walls looking like they used to be smoking rooms it is a nice place. The rooms did not smell bad and had great housekeeping.

Unbeatable location for the price

Great staff. The rooms are just that, rooms. But for a affordable hotel it was well worth the stay. If your looking to travel to Rome on a quick getaway this a one location you should check out.

Great Access

I had a great experience staying here for 5 nights. Neat and Clean room. The location is also perfect for me as a tourist because of the easy access to the subway line A, and a several-minutes-walk distance to the fountain of Trevi, Spanish steps and so forth. Ristorante around there are also very good. The only problem may cause your concerns is that the room, the lobby,and everything there are very small. But I guess that's fair for a 3 star hotel in a European city, for the fair price. In fact, if you have ever been sleeping in one of those tiny hotels in Tokyo, you would probably never complain about how "small" a hotel room can be.

Close to Metro

The staff was great. One day i broke the key off in the door and even though i was super stressed, the staff were able to take care of my mistake in a matter of minutes. we enjoyed breakfast on the terrace and the short walk to the metro. we loved the service at this wonderful hotel.

"Great location"

Our nine-day vacation started in Rome and we took side trips. This hotel is in a very good location - within walking distance to the Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain, Via Veneto, Via Condotti, American Express, etc. Public transportation was around the corner. However we did a lot of walking. The concierge staff was very helpful and pleasant. Our room was nice with clean towels everyday and plenty of hot water. The room was a little dusty and the shower curtain/stall could be washed more often. Breakfast was OK. Plenty of places closed by to eat at night. Would stay there again.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Two doors down you have a nice small trattoria/restaurant with very reasonable prices. You can even take out food, especially hamburgers and pizza. The waiters were very pleasant.
