Recent guest reviews

Alessandro was a pleasure to meet at check-in. Hotel was within a 30 min walk of all the sites. Would definitely recommend.

If you like simplicity, this is your kind of place. Clean, comfortable, small and in a great location. Only 2 complaints - one of which the management was well aware of - their wifi needs updating and the bed I had was a bit uncomfortable - the springs could be felt. Otherwise, not a single issue. The staff is lovely. The view from my window was like a stereotypical Roman view. Can't be beat.

This hotel was really accommodating to my needs. The room was a little small but perfect size for one person, me. :) the a/c didn't work in my room, and the concierge adjusted it for me. The staff was really nice and respectful. The breakfast buffet was very delicious. The whole hotel is beautiful, and close to the tourists areas. I enjoyed my stay and had a wonderful time.

The roof top & staff were amazing! Within walking distance to everything. Crazy Irish bar around the corner that has the funniest Karaoke crowd.

Considering it was the first time to Rome, one can never be sure that the details or information of the property you would like to stay at align with what is advertised. Especially when traveling out of the country. This property, however, was amazing for the location, the staff, the comfort, the ambience...etc. Although people spend little time in their room, where you lay your head at night influences a person's overall travel experience. We absolutely LOVED IT!!

Staff friendly, daily brunch with coffee and fresh fruit was nice. Explored on foot (most within a 20 minute walk) the main sites including the(Pantheon,Colosseum,forum,trivili fountain and Vatican including several churches along the way. Great location to explore (Navona,poplo). Great for shopping starting at the Spanish Steps.

Location can't be beat, only a block or two from Capitol Hill and Campidoglio. The Colosseum, Fountain di Trevi, and Pantheon are all within a 10 minute walk from the hotel. We were able to walk to most of the major attractions (most meaning all but the Vatican). The staff knew or would find out any bus route to get you where you needed. The rooms were very small, similar to our room in Athens, but well kept. European rooms are completely different than in the US, so don't expect the same size and quality. My biggest complaint is the Wifi is misleading, as it cost 3 euro per hour and connection can be hit or miss at times. We made a deal for 15 euro, allowing us unlimited usage for our 4 day stay. We needed internet to change our daily plans when it started raining and to schedule train/bus rides. If you don't need internet to help plan daily itineraries, no worries then. The hot breakfast(scrambled eggs and bacon), yogurt, fresh fruit and pastries was a great and cheap way to start off the day. I would only stay somewhere else if I could find something similar for a better price.

The location is excellent for anyone wanting to explore the Historic Center! The Campidoglio is a block or two away, and the Colosseum and Forum are five minutes walk down the street. In the other direction, the Pantheon and Piazza Navona are five minutes away. The staff were friendly and the room was super clean. Breakfast was nice, though I wished I could've gone during the summer to eat out on their roof terrace. The only negative aspect was that the hotel entrance is on a side street that seemed a bit shady at first. But the hotel seemed to have someone at the door and the entrance isn't too far down the street. Would definitely go back!

Hotel staff was always extremely helpful with our questions and requests.

As mentioned, the hotel was perfectly located in the heart of Rome and only a 5-20 minute walk to all major sights. The farthest sight was Vatican City and my wife and I tracked it in 20 minutes. The staff was extremely helpful and accomodating, as they speak English and will help you easily navigate the city and avoid being ripped off. We did a lot of sightseeing, both in Rome and Florence, so we never made it to breakfast :)

This is a beautiful hotel with good staff and a great location. Breakfast was full of choices including fresh fruit and a variety of cereals in addition to bread, cheese and meats. The interior decoration was first-class; marble, tile and fabrics that were creatively assembled. I peeked into the kitchen; it looked like a shiny stainless and white tile surgical suite.

The only complaint was the noise, but you are in a major city, all else was perfect, service, breakfast, rooms were clean, staff was attentive. I also say because of no pool, and no work out room, i would give the hotel 3 and a half stars, 4 to many 3 is not enough, I felt the hotel was quite elegant.

The staff at the hotel was very accommodating. Most people at the desk spoke enough English to be very helpful. Breakfast was especially good, more than just a continental breakfast. There is no (in-house) restaurant available for lunch or dinner. The bed was a queen size and very firm. Ask to have a room that does not share a wall with the elevator. Close to two good restaurants.

Located in the center of Rome and within walking distance of all the sites. Very friendly and helpful desk staff. Great breakfast included.

The hotel is on a quiet side street, so we had quiet restful nights free of street noise. However, it was also a short walk to the Forum, the Capital, the Pantheon, shopping and great dining. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The breakfast buffet featured a delicious variety of hot and cold foods and drinks. We will definitely stay here again when we return to Rome.

I would stay again at this Hotel Location/Location/Location Staff VERY helpful , the beds are very hard I got ok with it but my wife asked for extra pillows and sleep ontop. Free Breakfast is the best/make you a small snack for later in the day/save yourself some money.// take tours with a guide to see the major attractions/ wear the most comfortable shoes you on.

Very Clean,walking distance to the coliseum, spanish steps and trevi fountain. Cabs have a hard time finding it but once we knew where it was located no problem Good location.
