4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This hotel is small, quaint, very clean, friendly, very hospitable and helpful. The people working the desk were amazingly nice and gave us great recommendations. We needed ice every day for a knee injury, and were graciously accommodated. The rooms were small but very nice and included a small refrigerator. They have a free breakfast that offered a great variety of items. Ruel took great care of us every morning. Thanks for making our stay terrific.

I say this was very good from an overall experience, higher than an average experience. Now, someone else might want to judge it as an average 3 due to look, but you have to look at all things, location, cleaniness of room, staff, look within the hotel, how did the staff make you feel day to day during your stay?. That's where i'm coming from, plus I was only there 3 nights and gone all day for two of them pretty much, I was not able to take advantage of the daily breakfast, but I've heard it's cool. I loved that it was next to a market, where I could buy a bit of picnic and have a fantastic meal for 10 Euro! There were also a couple of restaurants on the street that were very popular, folks out of the door in lines past 10pm. I will have to return to explore why? Easy to do a taxi or walk, seemed about 15 minutes from main points of interest, but here again, I can't speak to that in detail as my tours picked me up or I just taxied to locations and back fairly easily, the front desk does tell you up front there will be a 6 euro per day city tax and you'll pay on your checkout. Keep that in mind, there was mini fridge with free waters and it held my leftovers which was nice to have as well. For a short visit, I'd probably do it again, but, for longer I do admit to liking places with room service, but considering the market and restaurant options that close, it could change my mind? Who knows. Quality television, with a few English channels, but who sits around watching television while in Italy? Ha!

This hotel was ok for being convenient to all the attractions Rome has to offer. I would have to say it was a bit outdated as the rooms reminded me of my stay at the circus circus in Las Vegas NV but the staff there was so friendly that made up for it.

I would class it as a 3 and a half star not quite a 4 star. The room was nice, the bed was comfortable, the shower was tiny. The breakfast wasn't worth getting up for. You had to use the lift, you couldn't take the stairs which was annoying, and on checkout you had to pay your tax, which was 6 euros per person per day. I'd have prefered to pay this on arrival rather than wait until the end of your holiday when all your money is spent up. The hotel was in an excellent location and the staff were friendly.

Stayed at this hotel on a family tourist trip. Convenient location. Walking distance to the metro and to several sights, such as Spanish Steps (20-min walk). The concierge was polite and responsive. Our lights went out on the last day of stay. They fixed everything in the matter of minutes. The room was small and not too many closets/ drawers. We could hear someone across the wall coughing at night (so make sure you are really tired before going to bed, since the walls are so thin). There were a kettle, cups, coffee, tea and condiments in the room. The shower was small, but clean. Towels were changed daily. There was a blow dryer in the bathroom. Breakfast was plentiful: yogurt, egg omelet, bread, pastries, fresh salad (tomatoes/ cucumbers), marinated salad, sausage, cheese, etc. Coffee is from the machine, not freshly brewed, but bearable. Gelateria La Romana a Rimini del 1947 is located at the end of the block. You can get one of the best-tasting ice-creams in Rome there. Prepare to stand in line. Would stay here again because of location, although it is hard to believe that it's a 4-star hotel. I would think more like 3 stars.

Lovely, clean and friendly hotel. The reception staff were brilliantly accommodating and completely helpful with information regarding the whole city. The only negative was that the WiFi wasn't that good to connect to within certain areas of the room. But all in all, totally deserved of the 4* merit. Nice area with amenities and restaurants all a short walk away. Along with transport links into city.

Just back from a very pleasant stay at this hotel. The hotel was clean and tidy, The ladies who cleaned our room where cheerful and always spoke. The staff was very helpful and friendly nothing was too much for them. Breakfast was good and the waiter Ruel was excellent in his job and there to support when needed. Thanks for making our trip in Rome even more unforgettable Trevor Majer

We enjoyed a clean spacious room, and that's about it. It needs a bit of refresh in common spaces (ie breakfast room and corridor). The hotel is location a convenient if you are planning to travel by train around Rome. Do not expect usual 4 star treatment.

Pleasantly surprised with this hotel, got great deal via last minute and didn't know what to expect. Best asset were its very friendly and professional staff. Decor was a bit dated but added to Italian quirky charm in our opinion together with slightly odd breakfast choices. Rooms and Hotel very clean free wifi and no hidden extras. Location is fine if you are fit and used to walking. We walked into town every day which took 45mins and preferable to overcrowded buses. Out of peak season this hotel is fine, old air conditioning could be an issue later in the summer

Stayed in this hotel on the recommendation of somebody who had aleady been, and we were not disappointed. It was about 15 minutes' walk from Termini Train Station and we were able to walk to and from the hotel with our cases. The hotel is in a quiet road with a very good restaurant opposite. We got a warm friendly welcome on arrival, and were offered a helpful map, which we used a lot during our stay. The room was small, and overlooked a courtyard, but was absolutely fine, it had everything you might need and it was very quiet and peaceful - just what you need for a good night's sleep after a hectic day of sightseeing! The choice for breakfast was amazing - savoury and sweet choices - something for everybody - including cake (?!) - and sparkling wine if you wanted it first thing in the morning - or spicy beans, rice with peas, olives, cold meats, yoghourt, cereal, toast, bread, and pancakes from a machine! Thanks to Pina for preparing all the food, and to Ruel, who was great at making everybody feel welcome and keeping the breakfast room ticking over smoothly. We particularly appreciated the little area near reception where you can sit down and have hot drinks from a machine, or cool peach or lemon iced tea - very nice at the end of the day. There is also chilled water which you can fill your bottle with before heading out for the day. It's a small building but the space has been used really well, and a lot of thought given to the decor. It may not be recently refreshed, but it was done well when it was done! There are no stairs for general use, but we never had to wait long for the lift. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. There are two underground stops within 15 minutes' walk of the hotel, and more restaurants around the local streets than we had time to test out. A wonderful gelateria at the end of the road - very handy indeed! We would definitely go back, and can recommend this hotel to anybody looking for a place to stay whilst packing the day with seeing the sights of Rome.
