The roof top area.

Location: 10 out of 10. The colosseum is a 2 minute walk, as well as, the forum. The metro is 10 in either direction. The train station is a 20 minute walk north. Just to the south is a couple good restaurants. If you love walking, walk past the colosseum and towards Corso. We walked to a from, as far as the vatican and Villa Borghese, everynight. We loved visiting the trevi fountain at night and grabbing a gelato for the walk home! Its about 40 minutes.. Room comfort: we selected the room with a few and had a small submarine style window of the colosseum, but it was still beautiful. We did have a balcony as well but it was facing the back of the park and some graffiti riddled stairs.. the bathroom door doesn’t stay open, you have to prop it. Our kettle broke and we couldnt get a replacement because there were no more i. The hotel... the main door stopper fell right out of the wall on the first day.. the room was super small with barely enough room for large luggage. It was quite a challenge to unpack. There was a column located almost directly in the middle of the room making things worse. The column wouldnt be so bad if they didnt install a desk right behind it. They should Either move the desk to the wall or get rid of it as it was useless... there is a loose side table that we absolutely had to either put in the bathroom or the balcony. We made use of it in the bathroom.. the room temps fluctuated, often times too hot, even though we had the tempature set way down...

This hotel is nice and close to the Colosseum and the train station. The rooms in the hotel are really nice but tight in space. The staff were very helpful with any questions we had.

We stayed there for 8 days and everyday was great. The hotel was clean and modern. The staff was friendly and helpful. The location is great and just a short walk to the colosseum. There are great restaurants within walking distance and a minimarts next door. Behind the hotel is a staircase that leads you to a neighborhood that is not touristed. A bus stop is right across the way that made getting around the city easy. We just took Roma Atac 51 or 85 to get to most places. Very easy to use, but remember the bus drivers don't have time to answer questions. I would definitely stay at this hotel again, not one problem at all. Request: have a small gym and get USB plugs for your rooms.

Location is perfect and the staff is very helpful but the rooms are very small and the Shower tile is full of fungus. We had two bedrooms and both showers were dirty. The tile lines were Black full of fungus. It was disgusting. Also, hotel tax was outrageous $16 per person per night. ($96 for 2 people staying 3 nights) That is pretty much paying for an extra night. They offered us a Mini Bar deal for $12 a day and we accepted thinking that the it was gonna be a nice treat, however mini bar only consisted of 2 bottles of flat water, 2 sparkling, 1 reg. coke, q coke zero and 2 carrot juices. Really? What happened to the cookies, peanuts, chocolate bar etc. Overall, I will rather stay at a different hotel.

We had a wonderful experience. The staff was very helpful and answered our questions with a smile. Our room had an amazing view of the Colosseum which was only a few steps away.

Let's start with the good. My stay was from November 2 through November 9, 2016 on the 4th fl The hotel staff was absolutely amazing! Specifically, Davide and Giancarlo were amazing. Everyone at the front check in desk was fluent in English which was very important to me as a solo traveler. The proximity of this hotel to the Coliseum was about a 4-5 minute walk. It is also very close to the Roman forum and major streets. The Trevi fountain and Spanish steps were about a 30 minute walk but very, easy to navigate. There is also a Carrefour Express (local grocery store) that is open 24 hours within a 10 minute walk. At the time of my stay the air conditioner was still enabled which made me really happy- I would set the temperature at 15 degrees celsius. Typically, European hotels cut the air conditioning off in October to save money. There are many smaller convenience stores and even a 24 hour bakery on Via Labicana- within 2-3 minutes of the hotel. The reason for mentioning this is because water is not complimentary at this hotel, there is a coffee maker in the room (along with teas and instant coffee) but no bottled water. There is a mini-bar inside the room where a 16 ounce (standard size US water bottle) costs 2.50 Euros. Breakfast is 16 Euro and was not worth it in my opinion. Overall, I feel that Rome is a must see for historical reasons, but the streets are filled with litter and there is graffiti everywhere. I'd stay at this hotel again if it was my first time in Rome

Dear Guest, Thank you for choosing our hotel for your stay in Rome. I am glad you enjoyed the location and found it convenient for your needs. I am really grateful for the positive fed back toward our staff. I am sorry the room design did not reflect your expectations. I apologize for the state of some parts of the neighborhood, we will inform again the authorities but there is not much more we can actually do. I thank you again for your feed back and look forward to welcoming you again. Kind Regards Giuseppe Fioretti Room Division Manager
