We had a wonderful experience at Flann O'Brien. The bilingual staff there are wonderful and willing to help you with anything you need without hesitation and with a smile. The "continental" breakfast was great. You sat down and were served by one of the friendly waiters or waitresses. The cappuccino, made at the bar right in front of you, was great and authentic. We stayed 6 nights in Rome and could not have been more pleased. Also, outstanding location! We were able to walk to most of the major attractions and many great restaurants.

We just got back from a rome vacation from Dec. 13th to the 20th...the hotel had an excellent location and we were able to walk to all the tourist attractions that we wanted to see. the hotel staff was friendly, the free breakfast wasnt anything special but was helpful... right around the corner from our hotel was two pizza places and they both had excellent pizza...they were friendly as well. also near the pizza shops was a snack shop with gelato and espresso among other things...making it easy to get bottled water at a reasonable price. the cleaning person was prompt and always had fresh towels and the bed made when we arrived back after a day of walking around the city. this room was small but good enough and had a tv fridge and safe in the room. the one thing they didnt have was an ALARM CLOCK so be prepared...luckly my cell phone is an international phone and i had a universal outlet adapter and used my cell phone as my alarm. also we had our return flight at 630am and we asked the hotel to get us a taxi, they called for us and set up a ride in which we were supposed to be out front at 4 am sharp we waited until 425am and he never showed so we had to go to the Via Nazionale to flag a taxi down at 430am which luckily we were able to make it to the airport in time. other than that i would recommend this room to people who just need the basics out of a hotel room.

I'm a single guy and I just needed a clean and affordable place to sleep and shower. This hotel was at a perfact location and they kept the room clean. I didn't spend much time at the hotel since the whole purpose of going to Rome is to enjoy the city. The hotel didn't offer much with TV options but they had WiFi which kept me up to date with the world. The complimentary breakfast was very good and I didn't return until late at night. The staff was excellent and very helpful.

Although there are rooms above the pub itself, we chose rooms at a separate building a block away on a side street (Via Firenze) because of previous cautions about noise from the pub and the main street (Via Nazionale). Due to travel we had two different stays involving four different rooms, some of which can be rather tiny. All were well kept and comfortable with clean bathrooms. 102 had a cute balcony. The staff is great and man be able to show you different rooms. You are right in the middle of Roma and we felt very safe. The pub itself wasn't that loud and was fun although a bit more expensive than other places we ate.

IT IS A VERY NICE PLACE... CLEAN ROOMS, WONDERFUL LOCATION AND THE SERVICES WERE VERY GOOD. MY VISTOR WAS VERY HAPPY. THE BREAKFAST WAS VERY WONDERFUL AND QUICK... IT IS THE KIND OF PLACE YOU WILL LIKE TO STAY... I RECOMMEND THIS PLACE.

We were spending the weekend in Rome and wanted a place that would be convenient for site seeing. This hotel was perfect. Right off one of the main streets and less than 5 minute walk to the train and subway. The hotel staff were friendly and gave us great travel advice. The free breakfast in the morning was great. Our checkout time was in the morning but our flight was not until that evening so we needed somewhere to leave our bags. The hotel held them in a locked room for us free of charge. This was convenient as the hotel was on our way back from sightseeing and on the way to the train station.

-No wake up call even when requested -Alarm clock was not functional -Clock in the room was an hour off -Actual room was a 5 minute walk away from the check-in and in the opposite direction away from the train station -Small but clean room -Nicely tiled bathroom -Three levels of security(doors with locks) to get into your room -If only hotels would reimburse guests who miss international flights and have to buy new tickets due to inaccurate clocks in the room and refusing to provide a wake-up call...
