Proud for my stay in this hotel, best location and access for city tour visit, excellent facilities, wonderful decoration, kind staff. I really and highly recommend it for stay in Rome. Don’t miss the chance to warm greetings for the administration and staff.

The first thing that I loved about the hotel was its location. It's located right across the magnificent Santa Maria Maggiore. We had great views of this majestic papal basilica from our room. The room was very spacious and great for a short stay. My only suggestion would be to add some more power outlets in the room and the bathroom because of how power-dependent our modern-day devices are. The complimentary breakfast at the hotel was very good, and prepared us well every morning for a long sightseeing day ahead. The staff was great - always very friendly and helpful. There are some restaurants near the hotel, so you wouldn't go hungry. And there is a taxi stand right in front of the hotel by the side of Santa Maria Maggiore. The Roma Termini train station is about a 10-minute walk from the hotel, so it's very convenient if you're planning to take a train somewhere. Last, but not the least, the hotel can arrange for airport pickup and drop-off for a very reasonable fee if you coordinate in advance with the hotel staff. I found them to be very responsive over email when I made the booking and the arrangements for airport transportation.

I Stayed at this hotel for 4 days in November 2017. It was a good hotel very well located near metro (500 m) and very close to good restaurants and tourist spots. On arrival I was greeted by a gentleman at the reception of which he was extremely kind and considerate, already bringing me to the Italian friendly climate. My only criticism of the hotel is in relation to the Bathroom, as we had problems with the toilet that did not work the flush! and the Shower on the last day broke the hotel equipment and we were without hot bath! I believe they are points to be observed by the staff of the Hotel, but definitely a Hotel that would recommend to anyone who seeks a comfortable place and close to the tourist points as well as the cost benefit

nice hotel maybe a bit tired the staff were very helpful especially the lady on the front desk .The hotel is very central so you can walk to most of Rome,s main attractions The breakfast was a it disappointing so we didn't bother .There is no bar as such just a bar man who tended to be a bit elusive

Very centrally located and clean hotel. My room was of a decent size for being a single room. However, there is a need of more maintenance (torn wallpaper, for instance). The only noticeable problem was the mattress, it would be rigid even for monastic standards...

stayed here last week really not great first room we were showed small & grubby asked for another. Bath had cracks in it the bed was 2 pushed together 1 was lower than the other. The breakfast was not up to much either only the fresh pastries were nice. It is supposed to be a 4 star but definitely not that at all I have stopped in better 3 stars. Alot of the other guests seemed to be disgruntled too. It is a shame as with some TLC it could be a great hotel as it is in a good location.

The former residence of Pope Clement IX (when he was still a cardinal). It's a nice hotel with plenty to see within walking distance. The hotel is across from the Basilica of St. Mary Major and a few other churches are nearby. The breakfast was nice. It also has a nice courtyard to relax in. Try to see the lovely little chapel if you can. The space is a little on the small side, but that's part of staying in a Roman hotel.

We visited for three nights in August 2017. The hotel is designated as a 4 star hotel but this can only be due to the location as oppose to the actual quality of the hotel. Our first night we were in a room on the second floor which had very loud drainage noises coming through the walls at random points throughout the night and zero wifi access. We reported the wifi issue to the the reception that night and were told that we should just go to another part of the hotel to use the wifi. This is despite the rooms having a sign saying wifi is available in all rooms. The next morning we asked for a room switch and were given one on on the fourth floor which had wifi coverage and was quieter although the fittings were not 4 star quality and one of the lamps did not work. The breakfast was adequate although they only appear to have one person working at breakfast in order to clear the tables, replenish the food and drink and wash the dishes which does not seem sensible. However saying all this the staff are lovely especially Marco (how he is so cheerful at 4am I will never know) and do their best to make the experience better for you. It is a shame as with a relatively small amount of money spent on the hotel itself then it could really be a four or even a five star hotel.

Dated decor throughout the hotel hand held shower in the bathroom. Breakfast extremely poor for a 4 supposedly 4 star hotel. Potentially dangerous table lamp in the bedroom. Redeeming feature the staff were friendly but you can only do so much with the tools you work with I.e building. Very poor wifi from certain rooms

When we arrived no one there to help with luggage although we are elderly. Sat on the bed and almost fell through it as it was broken, the fridge didn't work neither did the air conditioning. The bed was fixed, the fridge not and air conditioning fixed after two nights., thus we only had one good nights sleep. On arrival Saturday evening we weure told there was no bar, this is supposed to be a 4star hotel!! Breakfast left a lot to be desired, no good going to eat after 8.30, hardly anything left.! The only good thing about this hotel is the location and to be fair it was clean but we won't be staying there again.
