Stayed here for 3 nights on recommendation of regular traveller to Rome. Not disappointed. Excellent location in Centro Storico - just round the corner from Campo de Fiori and close walking distance to Piazza Navona and Pantheon. Mainly quiet apart from late night revellers and early morning dustcarts in the square below our 3rd floor window. 13 rooms in main block plus 3 in annex. Very helpful receptionist (Simona) with 24 hour hotel access. Small bar area open in mornings. Very interesting breakfast room in the basement - part of the old theatre? Bedroom had very comfortable bed, good en suite bathroom with all normal facilities (apart from no coffee or milk sachets with kettle for hot drinks in room). Adequate buffet breakfast with cooked food limited to scrambled egg and a few bits of bacon one morning. Wasn't able to get boarding cards from either PC in comfortable lounge area as both were very old and slow without Google Chrome - our airline no longer supports Internet Explorer!

We just got back from spending 5 nights and couldn't have found a more perfect hotel. It's a quaint hotel with about 13 rooms. We felt like we were the only ones staying there for Valentines week. Every single staff member was friendly, courteous and spoke English. The rooms are decent size, water pressure was STRONG and hot. Nice mini bar with space for some leftovers or food for next day's picnic. Hair dryer in the rooms and also a tea maker with tea bags. Breakfast was included in our stay and I was awakened Sunday morning to the smell of bacon being cooked. Sunday breakfast had scrambled eggs and bacon, but the rest of the week had just the usual European meats, cheeses and rolls with some bread for toast. Only one morning did they not have scrambled eggs but I think that morning we were the only guests. They also had hard boiled eggs, cereal and some croissants and other pastries that were probably purchased frozen at some point. The morning of check out we were leaving before breakfast and they were so kind to make us a couple cappuccinos and open the breakfast area for us to grab a quick bite before they called the taxi for us. The location can't be beat for the proximity to Campo Di Fiori just 200m away, yet is so quiet and peaceful. You can't even hear the drunk international students at night at the Campo di Fiori bars at night. All other tourist locations are a maximum of a 30 minute walk. There is also a bus station just 3 minutes walk away and you can buy bus tickets at the Tobacco shops about 100m away. If I was forced to give a negative comment about the hotel, it would be the older mattress that was slightly uncomfortable, but we only noticed it after a couple days when we hadn't gone to bed so exhausted after walking around all day. We will definitely stay here again when we return to Rome. Thank you staff for a wonderful stay!!

A small quirky hotel in the heart of medival Rome. 5 minutes walk from the Campo di Flori and the Piazza Navona and near all the sites you need to see. Surrounded by resturants, bars and shopping. Hotel clean, tidy and comfortable. Great fun people watching in the evening on the Campo with a glass or two of wine and fresh olives.

I stayed in this hotel in 2007 and said that when I returned to Rome I would make it my base of touring. I was not disappointed. The rooms are large, clean and nicely appointed. The bathroom was small but clean. My only complaint was the short wall glass enclosed shower that made it all but impossible not to flood the bathroom. Two staff members were the same from my visit in 2007. I would heartily recommend this well situated hotel. I walked in all directions to visit the sites in Rome. The price, location and service makes this my go to hotel when I visit Rome again. I am contemplating an extended stay in Rome and may choose to stay here rather than rent an apartment.

I really enjoyed this hotel overall and would stay again if I need a hotel in Rome. The location is great and the value for the room is near unbeatable. We stayed in the main building, on the second floor. The staff was always nice and spoke English pretty well. They were also able to give suggestions for places in the area like bars, restaurants and places to get laundry done. They also called a cab for us when we needed to go to the train station. The hotel itself also has a cozy bar, but we never saw anyone there and we never used it either. The only reason we didn’t go to it was because we had a packed schedule all day and wanted to sleep right when we got back. The breakfast in the morning offered a good selection and felt like an Americanized Italian breakfast. They had scrambled eggs and bacon, but they also had sliced meats and cheese available in addition to yogurt, bread/toast with Nutella and jelly, pastries and other sweets. The only bad thing about the breakfast is that it seems like they don’t restock any of the items, so the earlier you get there the better. There were always items available that I wanted, but I took the last of the eggs one of the mornings and there was still about an hour left of breakfast. Also the breakfast room was under the ruins of the Pompey theater, which was a very cool way to start each morning. The rooms were very nice. They were pretty spacious for this price in Rome. The furniture and decor had a vintage feel without feeling like everything was just old and not maintained. The room was always made clean and tidy by the staff by the time we returned each day. The “remote” for the TV was built into the night stand, which was interesting, but it didn’t seem to work so I had to manually go up to the TV if I wanted to adjust the channel or volume. But hey, it’s Rome so you really don’t need TV; we had it on for all of 5 minutes just to test it out. The beds were not very comfortable. We could feel the springs a bit, but it was definitely better than sleeping on the floor. At the end of a long day, it didn’t really matter and we had no trouble sleeping. The bathroom was fine, though the door was a little difficult to close. The shower was definitely small, but just enough room for one person. The water pressure was good and there was never a shortage of hot water. There was very little room on the sink to put any of our toiletries on, but it was manageable. Our windows in the room opened up to the inside of the hotel, so no courtyard view for us but there are rooms that have this. There was free wifi, but when in our room there were times it would disconnect or go slowly. When in the lobby there was no issue with the wifi. But when eating breakfast, since it’s under the ruins, there was no wifi signal at all.

The location is fantastic, to be able to walk everywhere! We stayed in room 34, on the top floor. No view, but it was very quiet. The hotel has an elevator, friendly and helpful front desk staff, and the room was cleaned every day. The room is large, and the bed comfortable. There were lots of options at breakfast, which was served starting at 7 am. The people staying there when we were there were mostly of retirement age, which I think added to the quiet. There are good restaurants very close by. I highly recommend this hotel.

The location is great - near piazza navona and campo di fiori. The room was nice - spacious enough and clean, although the shower was a bit in need of renovation. The breakfast was ok but a bit dull. The service was kind and nice. The room key was weird, huge keyring and we were asked to leave it at reception when going out.

This was a good choice for Rome as it's pretty central when related to the Rome tourist map everyone uses so the main sites are all a fairly short walk from here. Breakfast was basically scrambled or boiled eggs with cold meat and cheese options. Adequate while I'd probably opt for eating at different Rome cafes on a return. I would use this hotel again with the only drawback being no views as the rooms are closed in.

This hotel looks great in photos and is well situated near the Campo di Fiori. Unfortunately, there are some serious compromises, particularly if you stay in the Annex across the plaza from the main building. The staff was very courteous and the daily breakfast in the Roman ruins in the basement was well stocked (while the ruins are nice, good luck getting WiFi in that cave!). Our problems were with Room 3 in the annex...up 3 flights of very narrow stairs only to be kept awake by a flock of pigeons roosting under the eaves. Or by trash service at 3 a.m. Or by revelers at the restaurant across the street at 1 a.m. Or the echoes of motorbikes at any particular hour. Don't expect peace and quiet. Also, no WiFi in the annex.

I really enjoyed the quiet location of this hotel (ask for a room on the side not on the street) and the great service from the hotel staff (especially Paolo). The room way large with two beds (though not particularly comfy beds), and the bathroom was great (although the shower is tiny). It's a great place with lots of shopping (Campo di Fiore is 2-minutes walk away) and places to eat. I'd stay here again!
