The only reason i do not give this a five star overall reservation is because of the front desk hours of operations which if i remember correctly cease after about 2p give or take. But in all fairness if you need to check in late then they will work with you to get back in your room. And it's also somewhat difficult to locate if you do not know in advance that it is on the second floor of the address which looks like a regular apartment building once you get there. Fortunately enough i read previous reviews which made me aware of this in advance. Otherwise you're on your own after hours. But aside from that all basic necessities are available to you including a communal kitchen for everyone's use. I noticed communal bathrooms as well but fortunately i reserved the room with it's own bathroom which was even more beneficial for me. The location was great as we had easy access to all local public transportation and even walked to the Colosseum from where we were located. And for the money I can't complain at all, it worked out very well for us and i intended on utilizing them again on my next visit to Rome. The room was also very clean upon arrival.

The hotel is basically renting a room from someone. The staff is VERY friendly and willing to help you in any way possible- but the actual hotel is kind of lack luster. Our room was just that - a room, with two single beds stuck together to appear as a queen sized bed. This method didn't work very well...There was no A/C, which was no problem, other then the fact that a putrid smell would waft in the window in the morning that gave you the feeling you were in the sewer. Our bathroom was down the hall, it smelt so bad. It wasn't particularly clean, though the cleaning person came and cleaned it everyday. Can't say I would stay here again...

This hotel was bad. Our room had wall paper that was pealing. Room felt dirty. Shower not hot. We were in Italy, Israel, Jordan and Palestine, this was our worst room. Would never recommend this hotel.

Hot water not consistent. Wall paper pealing. Not a very nice place.

I recommend this place. It's clean, rooms are quite big and comfortable, staff is friendly, flexible and helpful. Best hostel I've stayed in Rome (amonst 4 or 5).

My girlfriend and I just returned from a 6 night stay at Guesthouse Sleeping Beauty, and we had a wonderful stay. The staff was very helpful, friendly, and accommodating (grazie Luca!), and the room was very comfortable, especially for the cost. Also are some wonderful restaurants around (our favorite was Pinsa E Buoi dei) and it was about a 20 minute walk to the Colosseum. The room was very clean and comfortable, and everything was, to our pleasant surprise, exactly as advertised. We will be staying there again when in Rome. Can't go wrong here!
