Well I stayed here for 2 nights. Signage out front discrete / hidden. If front gate shut not clear what call bell to press. 2nd gate a little clearer which button to press! If gates open no problem. Room ok for a budget hotel. Short walk to Vatican, Metro & sights. Easy to get lost in labyrinth of side & parallel shopping streets.

This 2-star hotel is based on a great location, very close to the Vatican and with a bus station right outside to talk you to the historic center. The metro station (Ottaviano) is 10-minutes away. The street is full of high end shopping choices and restaurants. Never felt afraid walking at night, as this is a good neighborhood. The Hotel itself is clean and the staff is very friendly. However, the Hotel is very basic. It is on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th floor of a very old building, with a dirty entrance and a very small elevator which makes it impossible to use with luggage. The "superior double room" was really small with 1 small closet and a small desk. The TV has a 15-inch LCD TV. The only blanket available was an IKEA single bed blanket. The bathroom was ok. There is NO free room WIFI, only at the reception (so basically, there is NO FREE WIFI). The room door provided no soundproofing at all (you can hear people walking outside). Only the Hotel can be paid via credit card (i.e the City-Tax had to paid in cash). Overall and given its price, i would choose to stay elsewhere next time.

Booked room on cheaptickets for one nite. They charged me for seven, Within 24 hours, I informed them of the error. After a week, Cheaptickets informed me that the hotel will not refund. After reading reviews, I decided not to say there at all. I consider my charge a donation, it sounds like they need it.

Rooms are small but clean. Complementary continental breakfast. Minus points the bathrooms are small like a closet.Located in a residential building.Vintage elevator can accommodate two or three people at a time. difficult when you have heavy or a lot of baggage. The friendly staff makes up for the shortcomings.

Pros: Great location. Good price. Friendly Staff. Cons: WiFi only at lobby. Hotel and facilities are aged. Small Room. It’s about 10 minutes’ walk from the major MTR station and train station (Termini station). There is a street market right in front of the hotel and in the morning you can buy fruits there at very good price. Besides, there is a sizable supermarket at the basement floor of Termini Station where you can buy food and drink as well as souvenirs like pasta and olive oil. I also bought pizza from this supermarket which is quite good. It’s within walking distance to Piazza della Repubblica and Santa Maria degli Angeli. You can easily take subway from Termini Station to Vatican (Ottaviano stop at Line A) and remember to dress appropriately for church (cover shoulders and knees). Hotel is basic with aged facilities. The room I have is small but a quiet and safe place for a tourist. Staff iw friendly. WiFi is not available at the rooms but available at lobby. In short, this is a normal hotel at reasonable price.

I have many things to say here however i will try to be short. Hotel has WiFi only outside and not into the rooms. Room is not clean. Air condition is bad and weak. Noisy area.... Online support is poor and they will tell u at the reception that they did not get your emails or requests or whatever or maybe they will tell u that they did not have the chance to answer your requests. I have ordered double superior room :) trust me .... This is not superior at all... This is funny too small and narrow room which can be ok max for one person and not two... So do not let them sell you the stories of superior ...

This is a comfortable, reasonably priced, very central ten minutes to Vatican Good beds, air conditioning, WiFi works well in halls where there are sofas Helpful staff, when you can find them. A good addition would be a jug in the room to make tea or coffee None available,the breakfast costs 5 euro and is pretty average Good lift for the bags Nice safe part of town and plenty of eating places, look around first

This hotel is in a good location and not bad for just a place to sleep at night. It is pretty basic. It's not clear on the website that there is no wifi unless in the small common area with one small chair. The air conditioning is also available with a 10 euro deposit and that is also not clear in the website. For the price it's worth it but nothing great.

Excellent location. Close to Vatican and the Metro. Staff is very friendly, attentive, and helpful. Room was comfortable and clean. Area is surrounded by great restaurants. One can opt to have breakfast in hotel. Stefano is professional and resourceful. I recommend this hotel as I felt very safe when I stayed there.

Great location of the hotel, just a few steps from St. Peter's Square. Quality was quite good and stuff friendly. Good value for money. The one thing that I would asked the management for would be the kettles with tea/coffee in the rooms
