I stayed in this hotel last month from 22nd - 28 th May .Located very near Piaza del sculo ,and walking distance from Re di Roma metro Station on Line A ( about 15 minutes ) is a nice place to stay in.Nice breakfast and very attentive and courteous staff.Special mention should be made about Alin.Over all a nice place to stay Highly recommended.
Rooms are lovely, clean and spacious. The bed was a bit hard and there's some traffic noise as there's a dual carriageway outside. We had a balcony, would have been nice to have had some chairs so we could have sat out there. Breakfast was lovely in a bright and clean restaurant. Buffet style and continental - food was very fresh and there was a choice of pastries and fruit. Shame the cups for cold drinks were plastic (as were the ones in the room). The hotel has a lovely feel and there's a patio garden at the back which is a nice place to sit and relax. Reception staff are all really friendly and helpful. I had a query about a trip I'd booked and the lady called the tour office for me which was brilliant. The hotel is quite far from the main sights in Rome and there aren't many decent places to eat in the area which for me was the only real down side. However, the metro stop is about a 15 to 20 minute straight walk and I saw a few buses go past too. Walk isn't too bad in the morning but it feels long after a full day in Rome with achy legs and feet so just be prepared! There's a supermarket just up the road with cheap drinks and snacks and a few basic pizzerias. That said, I'd still stay here again.
This hotel is a home base, if you want to explore the sights of Rome. Everything was clean, and the room was adequate. The beds were not that comfortable, and the pillows were hard like a board. Breakfast is an extended continental one: a lot of sweet pieces, donuts and toast. There is also cereal and yoghurt as well as some fresh and canned fruit, cheese and cold cuts.Two small supermarkets and a fruit market are in walking distance, and the station San Giovanni can be reached on foot in ca. 20 minutes. The staff is helpful, but they do have their limits: the internet connection in the rooms is nonexistent, and if you try to connect in the lounge, you may get a connection, but more likely you won't! This is unacceptable for a hotel in a big city! Our fridge did not work, but the staff kept some items for us in the fridge in their kitchen. If you can put up with a few shortcomings, this hotel is a reasonable place to stay.
I stayed for 3 nights with a friend who stayed for 2 weeks in April. My friend had 2 beds in the room so I was told had to pay 20 euro per night as a supplement for extra towel and toiletries when I checked in to join her for 3 nights. The toiletries are very inadequate, the bathroom had broken tiles and shower screen and the aircon wasn't working (it was almost 30 degrees that week) - my friend was told by staff that they were waiting for the aircon man to come to switch it over to summer mode! On top of that, we had to shut the windows due to people smoking outside in the grounds below every night so it was way too hot to sleep comfortably. Then, when I checked out, I noticed the price I paid included breakfast which I didn't know about as my friend's deal did not include it. When I told the staff at check out desk that no-one mentioned the breakfast to me, she rudely said "It's not our fault, Signora, did you ask??"
We stayed for five nights in may, the staff were very helpful, the room was very good value for money, cleaned daily and the location was excellent. There's a couple of nice restaurants within a five minute walk, a taxi ride to the main attractions is very affordable, a great trip I would definitely recommend this hotel. Thank you for making stay so easy.
Despite the location on a busy dual carriageway it was quiet despite heavy traffic. Buffet Breakfast was adequate with only cold food available. Not even a boiled egg. WIFI is shocking, non existent in the room and not much better in reception. Majority of tourist attractions can be reached by the Metro. Turn right from the hotel 15-20 mins walk to San Giovanni Metro station. Lots of bars and Pizza eatery's on the route. Mini Supermarkets about 10 mins walk from hotel. For a 3 day pass on Metro, Bus and local trains only 18 euros. Bargain.
Good hotel and kind staff very help full at reception when we asked for help with transport .our room was small but clean comfy .breakfast continental all you needed until lunch time .Thanks for a nice weekend .hope to come again.
After staying at the hotel i would like to share my exepience and highly recommend this hotel. The hotel is located on a busy neighbourhood in Rome , everywhere in Rome is busy . I had no trouble sleeping and was given a double bed which was comfortable and the rooms was cleaned to a good standard. The staff were execellent and they could not do more to make your stay enjoyable. The hotel does only provide a contenaial breakfast so no egg and bacon which it does state and i would of liked coffee /tea making in the rooms but that is the only fault If i was in Rome again i would stay here
Don't understand the bad reviews on this hotel as me and my boyfriend loved staying here.....the staff were very helpful and the hotel was nice and clean. Would deffo recommend and if i ever come back to rome I would be staying here again.
I stayed at this hotel for 3 days. The hotel was pretty classic and really suited the Italian charm. Our room was on 3rd floor. The lift was really small, maybe could only fit 3 persons with luggage. The receptionist was really cheerful and helpful, as she tried her best to accommodate our needs. The room was quite spacious for 2 person, and it had mini fridge where we could store our snacks there (There was a big supermarket 10 minutes walking from this hotel). The bathroom were really spacious. The breakfast was standard, but it has so many bread selection which accommodate people with diet restriction due to religious reason (We were Muslims so we couldn't eat pork). The location was accessible with Rome Bus system. The nearest bus stop is only 3 minutes walk from hotel. Overall great stay.
