Poor staff manners, not welcoming at all. Guys dont book here. I was treated in a very unfriendly manner at reception. Poorly trained staff, nit deserving of stay. The room wasnt good no carpet, ac not working well. Extremely unfriendly staff. Please avoid this hotel
The location is very convenient – 1 minute to metro and 10 minutes walk to Tiburtina train station. The breakfasts are quite nice. My single room was quite small, but i didn't mind. The only major disadvantage is very thin walls. You can hear not only other guests walking and talking in the corridor, but neighbours next door snoring or making other physiological noises.
The best thing about this hotel is that it is next to the metro other than that the entire hotel is very run down, feels dirty and the bed was so uncomfortable. Don't do breakfast there it was totally not worth it!
The hotel looks nice on the pictures, but is run down. Three nights were enough! My friend and I were in a room for two because you pay according to room and not per person. Our room (16) was very small but still somehow manageable. The double bed was horrible, howver. It actually was two metal army-type beds pushed together. The headboard was not attached, just lying up against the wall. The springs squeeked and the headboard rattled at every turn. Every morning I awoke with a backache and a headache. Breakfast okay but not great. No elevator to the first floor and loud if you leave the window open. Internet was possible but did not work well. The positive aspects: good water pressure and nice, hot water, subway and grocery store right nearby, a full refridgerator, and the room is cleaned every day.
The hotel is well placed as a base for visiting the sights of Rome. The rooms are small, and although we had requested a twin, we were given a double. However, the room was changed without any problems the next day. There is no WiFi in the rooms but the beds were comfortable and the rooms clean. The shower was a little lacking in pressure and was not very hot but it was not awful . There was plenty to eat for breakfast with something for all nationalities and tastes. There was a great restaurant nearby for supper and a supermarket for purchasing drinks and food for the evening, if wanted. The receptionists were very helpful and pleasant. This hotel is not suitable for people who cannot use the stairs as the first lift is up a step set stairs.
San Giusto is a very nice hotel, but rather old. Especially old are carpets in the room and in the corridors. I chose this hotel because of its location: metro station Bologna (line B) is one minute from the hotel’s door. It took me about 15-20 minutes to get to the center: I changed line B to line A at Termini station and then rode to stations Bernini or Pizza di Spania. The room itself and the bathroom were very spacious. I didn’t like the shower: it was old and worked badly, also water wasn’t hot enough. There is no safe in room, only at the reception. I can’t say that this was a problem (the service is free of charge), but a little bit strange. There is no coffee-machine, so they served coffee in the coffeepots; again it was ok, but strange. Everything else at breakfast was as usual: cornflakes, yogurt, bakery, cheeses, eggs, etc. I didn’t have any problems with WiFi, the speed was perfect, but my room was on the second floor, so maybe I was just lucky. The supermarket is situated in the same building, it is open from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. every day except Sunday, on Sunday it closes earlier, but I don’t remember the exact time. I’m not sure that I would like to return to the hotel, but as it is not very expensive, who knows!
Never again......literally the worst bed ive slept on...mattress had a big dent in the middle and gave me neck pain due to the positioning of body sinking in...blanket was as thin as ice and used to shiver at night.. no such thing as hot water....having shower in cold water...no such thing as help with luggage...everyone has to carry it up the stairs and lift is at the top of stairs.. 1 staff didnt seem helpful...the guy with the glasses..other staff were nice and friendly...would expect more when spendind 46 euros a night and was there for 5 long bad nights...after a whole tiring day in rome you would expect to go back to a cosy bed and hot shower...breakfast was ok nothing too special...same everyday....good point situated near the metro and supermarket right next door...
It's located a little bit far from the center but just in front of a Metro station. The room wasn't so clean and there were dust everywhere. Also outside the hotel there was always dirty. The breaksfast is the only thing that was excellent I stayed for a long weekend.
This is an old hotel, and needs some updating. Right off the bat you will have to lug your heavy luggage up a long flight of steps to the first floor. I saw a family with a baby and another child in tow with luggage and strollers and felt sorry for them. The staff does not help you or the family with the luggage. There is lift but it is situated on the first floor and you have go up some more steps to reach it. The rooms are not very big and with the 2 of us having only a suitcase each, it already seems cramp. All the furniture is old. Soon after our arrival we were startled by a sound. It turned out that the hair dryer in the bathroom was turning on by itself even though the handle was firmly in place. This happens at regular intervals of a few minutes and last for about 2-4 seconds. Our shower had dirty grouting and the tray for putting shampoo and stuff was missing. So I had to put my stuff on the floor. I turned the faucet on and waited and waited for about 10 minutes. The hot water did not come for a long time. I had to shower with the cold water and only after about another 15 minutes when I finished my shower and washed my clothes did the water started warming up. My roommate showered next but the water wasn't that warm either. We turned in soon and was trying to sleep but the air-conditioning was not cold at all, not even cool, and we couldn't work the remote. At the same time the hairdryer keep on it's regular blast to remind us it was still there. Unable to bear it any longer I went downstairs and luckily for us they had one last empty room. The second room had a cleaner shower stall but we had already showered. The aircon was the same. We had no choice but try to sleep in the stuffiness. At least there was no phantom turning on of the hairdryer. We were about to fall asleep when the airconditioning suddenly decided to wake up with a loud noise. Luckily for us the air became cooler and inspite of the noise we fell asleep. Somewhere in the night I woke up sweating cos the aircon had turned off by itself. I switched it on again and prayed for the best. I managed to sleep till my alarm went off at 5am. I left to shoot sunrise. After I left the aircon started dripping on my roommate and woke her up. She scooted to my side of the bed but was unable to go back to sleep. By the time I returned the mattress on the aircon side was soaked. The wifi is also not great with no coverage at certain parts of the hotel. On the positive side, the hotel was near bus stops and the subway, although you will still have to lug your suitcases up and down the stairs. But being farther from the city centre also means you have to take the subway to attractions. There is also a convenience store nearby. Breakfast consist of a good selection of breads, eggs, ham, fruits and the usual coffee and juice. Pay a bit more for something better. I am now staying in another hotel that is 3 minutes' walk from Termini, with lift, modern and clean fittings, quiet and cool air conditioning and no phantom hairdryer. All at the price of less than 10 euros more.
I came little early around 09:30am, but the hotel staff did not allow us to check early but they kept our luggage. The staff were friendly and extremely helpful. Very good breakfast and rooms cleaned everyday. The internet was slow also there were hardly any free plugs in the room to charge my phone.There's a metro station across the road, a supermarket next to the hotel.
