This is a decent hotel with clean rooms. The hotel is away from the hustle bustle of the city and close to a metro so that you can reach anywhere easily. We were actually able to walk from the train station to the hotel.

I booked this hotel purely because it was cheap and each room was equipped with its own bathroom. Our trip was to see the sights so we just needed somewhere to sleep. We were pleasantly surprised about how nice it was. Staff were friendly, the rooms a little dated but clean and had everything we needed (kettle, hair dryer, towels). Breakfast was satisfying with cereals, pastries, bread/toast, meats, cheeses etc. On our last day our flight was in the evening but needed to check out by 11 but the hotel offered to let us leave our luggage there so we could go out for the day. We would definitely stay here again.

The hotel is reasonably priced compared to the general price level in Rome, but you also get what you pay for. It was not the cleanest hotel we have ever stayed in, and there was basically no privacy - the walls were paper thin, so you could hear everything going on, particularly in room number 2 which was located right next to the reception so that everybody passed by on the way to breakfast. Location is okay. There is a metro nearby, and it is possible to walk to Colosseum in 20-25 minutes.

We stayed for 4 nights and can't fault it. Area was so lovely and quiet. Rooms were fine, beds very comfy, bathroom had everything required. Very quiet at night. Staff were excellent and all very helpful. Big supermarket, cafes and restaurants around the corner. Metro stop 2 mins away that takes you to all the sites. We walked to the colliseum from here. I would stay here again if I were to go back to Rome!!!

Yes the hotel is quite cheap and value for money however the hotel was very basic didn't replenish tea coffee milk ECT had to go without or walk at least 30 mins into time centre to fine a decent cafe. The room was tiny there was no room stall for anything in either the bedroom or bathroom and it was very dated. The noise was unbelievable from 5.30am people banging about an shouting so dindnt really get much sleep. The staff were friendly however were not helpful at all when asked about good resturants or bars in the area. SAFE DIDNT WORK TOLD THEM EVERY DAY TO FIX!! The area of the hotel was a disgrace absolute disgusting rubbish all over the streets overall the sights made up for the crap hotel but wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone planning on a mini break to Rome.

The hotel was clean, close to the tube station. However, breakfast was incredibly poor, using the exact same cheap ingredients every single day. We stayed for 8 days and we got tired of eating the same things every day.One day the fruit salad was sour. If you don't like/ don't eat ham, it leaves you with no options.

Very nice hotel. Clean and cozy. Clean rooms, smiling staff. Near to metro station and a tram stop. Easy to move to the center of the city. Its the ideal place for low budget holidays. Not so much to offer, but absolutely value for its money. Nice, quiet, free WiFi, continental breakfast, near metro and tram, convenient and rather cheap. Perfect.

Lovely hotel, prime location. 20 minutes walk from the Colleseum. Lovely continental breakfast served every morning. More than enough to choose from. Rooms cleaned daily.. If you still happen to be in the room when they first come round to clean they will come back again when you've left! Supermarket round the corner that has everything you need. Can catch the metro from the main station which is 15 mins walk away. All in all a lovely little weekend break!

I have mixed reviews but partially personal preference. I booked this hotel as part of a groupon deal so wouldnt be a usual pick for me. The hotel is quite far out from any main attractions, there are metro and trams which are a bit of walk but would say it is outside the tourist areas. There are a couple of nice restaurants nearby which is convenient. The rooms were very clean and all you need for a few nights. I found the mattress very hard and uncomfortable. Because it is in a more residential area it wasn't to noisy apart from some noise from the street. Breakfast was good, lots of choice, pastries were the best.

Having just come back from the Espana Hotel, i can say that the rooms were clean and comfortable with a fridge and maid service.The hotel is in a perfect position to walk to the Colosseum, Basilica Santa Maria and the Termini.There is a supermarket at the end of the road which has everything and a small chicken/burger shop around the corner in case you are tired to go out for dinner in which they spoke perfect English and do great chips! Having read the other reviews i would say that due to the building and stairs it is not a good hotel for the disabled or to visit in the summer when busy as it echoes a great deal and you would hear everyone coming home. I would stay here again. The Wifi was free and we had no problem with the connection.
