The place was OK but our aircon did not work. Spoke to member of staff who seemed disinterested and walked off without saying anything.Transpired he went to ring the boss but did not bother to tell us.I had to go and find him. As it was a friend who was also staying there was able to get it to work. Staff member seemed not to care as though we were ruining his shift.
We stayed here from 8th - 15th May. First impression was bad, awful building so old you couldn't even tell what kind of building it was. The receptionist who greeted us was so so helpful, really welcoming, very warm and friendly and after a bad day it was most welcome. The hotel room was quite nice, room had a fridge which was so handy due to us being there for a week. Bidet in the toilet which was a lovely surprise. Bed was comfortable and it was very clean. The breakfast was ok, rude receptionist when called for breakfast on the morning and unpleasant to speak too. The lifts were so dirty we only took the stairs. Our room was on a smoking balcony so we couldn't ever have our window open due to people smoking. The beds, oh boy, the beds were so annoying due them being single beds pushed together and all we basically did for a week was move them back to where they were, they moved constantly! The shower was awful, so powerful (due to the small holes being blocked) it was painful to actually have a shower. The mini bar consisted of water and soft drinks ideal for people who don't drink. The room itself was ok for what it was but on checkout we were told we had to pay 'tourism tax' which we absolutely DID NOT pay due to the fact we weren't informed about any kind of 'tourism tax' during any part of our stay, we got the feeling it was a con but who knows! Rome in general is not a nice place to go the overall trip was rubbish
Perfect location I will definitely book again if i visit Rome again. The staff was very friendly and helpful.Breakfast was nice and very clean room.The location was perfect and near the metro station.
I stayed there for two nights... Though it's clean and tidy, couple of things must be polished... No replacement in the coffee station when bedroom it's done, that charge €24 for breakfast for 2 (cold coffee, cold toast), no good pressure in the shower and the water was boiling hot no chance to regulate it. By the time of paying for the extras no change available.,,, do not that good there are more choices for next time
We stayed five nights on a room only basis and it was brilliant. Can't fault the room or hotel at all. Very nice part of Rome , good local restaurants and within walking distance of sites e.g. 40 mins to Colosseum. Very close to lovely park and Villa Borghese. The room was modern, clean and attractive., really impressed, for a budget hotel.
This is a true B&B on the 2nd floor of a very old building in Via Veneto neighborhood. GREAT location, so close to Metro and restaurants. The room is cozy with a HUGE bathroom. Bed comfortable. Good thing it wasnt too hot because we could not get AC to work. We slept with the window open and were fine. The second night we were out at the wine bar a block away until 12am and made a little noise in the room when we got back. Not too much but evidently others complained. There is no privacy and we could hear everything the other guests said through the walls. Manager called us 2x and then came to the room. Oh well, we are on vacation.
The staff are super friendly, the rooms are clean and nice, the only down side was that the window is open on the shaft of the building and neighbors can see u except u apply the curtain. The location is very prominent and situated in one of the heigh end locations in Rome, lots of amazing restaurants around, also u can go to the station on foot or catch a bus.
I came here with my boyfriend earlier this month and it was "okay". None of the staff spoke English so language barriers made the stay very difficult, even obtaining toilet roll was a struggle. The woman on reception who we met once was very nice and helped us with finding shops etc, but as for the rest of the male staff they were very rude. When we asked how to get to the metro station he said he didn't know and then simply said "when are you leaving" to which we replied about half an hour and he very moodily said "well she needs to clean". we had paid £800 for a holiday I really didn't expect to be rushed out of the room in the morning. rooms are ok, bathrooms were newly done and rooms were clean, beds are two pushed together, uncomfortable which most hotels are if you're on a budget, can't fault the location right next to villa borghese which is beautiful and the restaurant outside is one of the best places we ate in Rome (if you walk down the street the restaurants are over priced and nowhere near as nice) we found it on the last night 3
The hotel was perfect for this money. Location is very good, all monuments and places are near the hotel, by walk to Villa Borghese about 5 min, Trevi-10 min, Piazza di Spagna-5 min. We used metro only to go to Vatican and Colloseum. Everyday cleaning and early breakfasts from 7:30 a.m. Modern design of the hotel, a large bathroom, towels changed daily, free wi-fi with good connection. The street and district not so touristic, and hotel is inside living house, so you feel that you live in Rome like Italian) Staff was very helpfull and helped us in all questions, especially Daniella. We will return to this hotel!
This is not a hotel. It is a group of rooms in an apartment building. Getting into the building is difficult , getting out is just as bad until you get used to the procedure. The man who was on reception was really unhelpful and difficult to communicate with although a guy who saw us and was off duty let us into the building.The reception is a room on the second floor a couple of chairs and reception desk. The receptionist in the morning was a great improvement. If you are looking for a comfortable chair you will find none. The room we were given was on the first floor, a double bedroom and a single bedroom two shower rooms. No comfortable chairs anywhere to be found. The breakfast was very basic juice packaged toast Nutella jam and a couple of croissants The plus side is that the "hotel" was perfectly clean and the area is a quiet area but close to all the main attractions. There was a old tramp living on the corner of the street, bag and baggage. We usually stay in a four star hotel but our travel agent assured us that he had had no complaints so far. He has one now!
