I will begin with the good parts of this hotel: -polite staff -distance from the tram stop -sweets and coffee from breakfast The things that i hated the most are: -the wifi did not worked, i used my mobile data -they have no parking area -the room is dark, the light does not come in due to the dark curtains and the front building -the bed is composed of 2 mattresses, which if combine, there is all the possibilities to fall between beds because the bed frame has wheels -the shower is fixed -regulate the water from the shower due to the tap, in the 5 days I spent at this hotel I preferred the cold water because I did not manage to control the hot water -at the facilities say they own the kitchenette, but in order to use it you have to get out of your pocket 5 euro / day -and the last one, and the most important, cleaning. I wanted to use a glass from the cupboard and i got the big surprise, the glass was dirty with traces of lipstick and the knives were dirty too. I have uploaded 2 pictures of the glass and knives, hope TripAdvisor will accept my photos and you will see what i am talking about, i was really sick seeing this dirt on some dishes that i was about to use them.
Excellent price with a good location. You get what you pay for. Rooms are a bit small and decorated like in 17th century. But it is not a luxury hotel to stay in the building and relax. It is made to be a place where you can get shower and sleep and it does it perfectly. Furniture is old and room may not be the best but its very very clean with fresh soaps and towels everyday. Keep in mind that you need to pay City tax extra after you leave hotel. 5 nights with 2 people and you have to pay 40 euro extra!
I will not lie. Its not a fabulous Hotel but the price is right. You get what you pay for. I do not imagine this hotel expects long stay holiday makers and certainly not families. It is just not that type of hotel.In my opinion. So the location. Its up a side street in a residential area NOT in the heart of Rome. The room we had,207, was sparse but serviceable. There was a refrigerator free to use but the small hob costs 5euro per day to use. The TV had zero English channels..at least i found none. The WiFi though free was not up to watching NETFLIX for more than an hour. And not at all when other guests were using it. The room was cleaned every day though towels appeared to be simply hung up to dry in the bathroom even after being left on the floor for replacement. The staff that we interacted with were VERY friendly and helpful I cannot criticise the staff at all. Breakfast at 4 euros was in my opinion poor. A sweet breakfast i think is how it was described. A few cakes and some bread with jams and some Muesli just did not do it for me. The plumbing was noisy every flush and shower from neighbouring rooms could be heard clearly. Again it is NOT a high priced luxury hotel in the heart of Rome but with a few tweaks it could be SO much better.
The people on reception were quite rude and made no effort to help out in any way. COnvenient location but absolutely NO cleaning in 6 days, the place was pretty grubby and didn't smell too fresh. Also there was no internet connection.
Good location, poor breakfast but I was happy with their great capuccino! Very nice people and friendly. I would come back for sure. Good cleaning and quiet place as it is located in a good neighbourhood.
me and my boyfriend stayed here for 5 nights, great staff, very friendly, room was cleaned every day, shower was decent, only thing is that finding it was difficult since its down a side street with no signpost or anything saying Ponte Bianco. Travelling into Rome was easy enough, most reviews say to get the train at Quottro Venti or Trastavere, but we found is so much easier getting a tram from trastevere to the centre, that way there was way less trouble getting to the coliseum etc. Overall was a great experience, for a 3 star hotel its good, but if you're expecting the Hilton, you will be disappointed!
For $48 Euros at a 3 star hotel you can't really expect The Hilton. I stayed here one night before heading to the airport I suppose it was acceptable for the price & purpose of my visit. The "Double Classic" room was very spacious with a lounge room & couch as well as a seperate bedroom. The bathroom was very clean but a small shower (kinda normal for Europe from what Ive experienced) toiletries were included & towels nice. Bedding was very clean but mattress(es) were very hard. I said (es) as the "king bed" was actually two singles pushed together & one of the beds was higher than the other creating a drop & bump in the middle which would have been very annoying for a couple. The wifi was down during my stay (apparently a line fault) which was a bit of a pain. I found a couple of dead cockroaches on the floors as well - kinda gross. Reception man was ok, not overly friendly but not rude. There is a supermarket & several pizzeria's nearby and it's handy to Trastevere train station. It's very easy to get to the airport or Termini from the hotel via the train station. I have paid just as much for shared hostel accomodation before so for $48 Euros it was ok for a private room I guess. I would probably say it's more of a two star hotel though & would not really recommend it for long stays.
Myself 50 and my aunt 70. Plus points very friendly staff a lift, towels are provided, air con, hairdryer and our room had a fridge and small hob. Bad points not city centre but we enjoyed our taxis out/in everyday got to see alot of Rome. No bar or restaraunt breakfast is avaiable for €4. We found the shower extremley small we couldnt use it we used a jug in the bathroom. Television only has Italian channels. I would recommened this hotel value wise it was comfortable and clean. I enjoyed my stay.
Really clean and realtively nice staff (don't expect customer service from Italians and Europeans in general :-) The room was really clean and the location is awesome for the price:-) I would definitely stay there again...
Close to tram 8 to go the city center, the hotel have good room, with small kitchen (5euro if you want to use) clean also if old furniture, TV, air-con and fan in my room, bathroom clean also if not so much space between the wc and sink.
