This is a boarding house, not a hotel, in our opinion. The small sign on the wall on the street says: "Rooms to Rent." You have to be buzzed in the locked front door, even in the middle of the day and one comes to greet you. The building is an apartment house. There is no lobby only an entrance area with mail boxes on the wall, like an apartment building. The "hotel" is located on the fifth floor and to even reach the small elevator, such as it was, you have to climb a full flight of stairs to the second floor to reach it. There was no other sign until you got into the elevator to direct you to the "hotel." The elevator operated like a freight elevator. You had to manually open and close the doors or no one else could use it. The small rooms were no where near worth the price of $159 a night that we paid. The room's window curtains were not only off the track at the top and dirty but the curtain ties were broken. One of the extra pillows on the bed did not even have a pillow case. The telephone did not work because there were just unattached wires coming out of the wall and we were told the system needed repair. The only operating phone was at the registration desk. The remote for the TV did not work and the front desk clerk, the only 24 hour a day position in the "hotel," did not have extra batteries. We were told there should be a second TV remote to reach English channels, but it was missing and they did not have a spare to give us. The bathroom was dirty and if you were to look up at the bathroom ceiling exhaust, it was clogged with dirt. The advertised available Internet was a single computer in the small registration area that the clerk also used with a sign on it to limit use to 10 minutes. The free breakfast, served by the one desk clerk, consisted of a prepackaged pastry filled with chocolate (??), another package that contained something that looked similar to Melba toast, packaged juice and coffee/tea served on a tray in our room. Frankly we felt unsafe and isolated. We checked out the following morning forfeiting our additional prepaid nights and moved into a beautiful first class hotel several blocks away for the rest of our stay in Rome.
the staff was great, very helpful and nice. the hotel was also in a great location, only a 10 min walk from the coloseum, the forum, pantheon, and fontana trevi, i will definately go back.
Small, very comfortable room. Staff -- one person on duty at all times at the desk -- very helpful. We were within walking distance of virtually all we wanted to see -- coliseum, pantheon, etc, plus tourist spots -- Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps, etc. Lots of walking, very hilly. Frequent buses to Vatican. Hotel close to all, including termini. Don't expect American type hotel/motel with front desk in open lobby. Reception desk was on second story . . . and, second story is about six flights up. Fortunately, this hotel has two-man elevator at first flight. Nor do you just "walk in" from the street (via); you must call reception through speaker system outside and announce yourself. Staff will the open door to allow you to enter. But, that's part of the charm!
almost like in a boarding house,o.k. brfast. over priced but that is Rome!
We did lots of walking, and visited all the "must see" sights in Rome. This was our second visit to Rome. We avoided returning to our hotel until we were ready to go to bed. The first three days were hot, which made our room unbearably hot. The one day it rained was even worse, as we couldn't even open the window. Since the hotel doesn't have a lobby or restaurant, we couldn't even spend time there during the rain. The staff was very friendly, and the room was clean.We did have our own bathroom, which was good. The location was reasonably close to everything.This hotel didn't begin to compare to where we stayed before. Walking up a flight of stairs to even reach the elevator, was difficult for me, as I am disabled. Stairs are painful for me.
I thought I was actually booking a hotel when it ended up I paid over $150 for a condo that was converted to a 6 room hotel on the 2nd floor of a row house. They did not have my reservation from Orbitz and this is the second time booking through Orbitz that my reservation has been screwed up. Avoid using Orbitz for your travel plans and NEVER book Sorggiorno Comfort in Rome, Italy!!!
