Recent guest reviews

This hotel is definitely the worst hotel I’ve ever seen in my entire life...I’ve been traveling around the world and never seen or experienced something like that...nothing is working in this hotel... Do not waste your money and holidays on this place... Poor service,unbelievably rude staff and the worst management ever

The worst hotel I’ve ever seen A real piece of garbage...With rude staff (except for a really nice guy named Oleg)and terrible customer service I went there with my wife and we found the water cold when we wanted to take shower I asked the guy at the reception while I was still half naked with half shaved beard to fix it up but he said that ((what should I do you can go home if you don’t like it))...we left the hotel at 2:30 am because I couldn’t take any more nonsense from him And that wasn’t the first time that happened to us and the only reason we went back there was because of Oleg at the reception...

Overall I am satisfied with my stay here. The hotel is located close to the Metro station, so central Rome is no more than a ca. 15 minute train ride away. The general area around the hotel is not the best, and the entrance to the hotel is off the main road and somewhat difficult to find. I stayed in the cheapest economy room, and was happy with the condition and size of the room, considering the prize. Cleaning and wifi was also very good. Happy with my stay here, and would most likely consider coming back. Was it the grandest hotel I ever saw? No! But I did not come to Rome to spend my days in a hotel.

the entrance was fard to find with one small sign. Very weird smell in the room. Thin walls, one night i could hear a lady talking so loud, i didnt get any sleep. There was a bedside table missing and a lamp was off, but they replaced both when we told them. Bathroom coud use a renovation, the showerphone was spilling water all over the place, but they replaced it. Close to the metro and nice coffee places around

I will start with my only positive I have and that is this is about 20 mins away on the underground from the city centre. We looked at each other in shock when our taxi started to pull up to this place as we had been joking about staying in the ghetto and this is what we arrived at. A hotel room that smelled like urine with walls so thin we could hear next door enjoying each other's company... Our "balcony" door (with no balcony just metal bars across the front of it) wouldn't close properly and we were scared to leave our belongings in the room. It was so dark in our room - probably because our lovely view of Rome was a brick wall - that we had the lights on during the day. The room was so small that a travelodge room is bigger, I hope that will give you an idea of how small I mean! All it could fit in it was a double bed which we had to squeeze round each other to pass by to the toilet. Which was yellow, dated and had a shower that looked like it was from the 60's, it was falling apart. I hate even writing about this place because it brings back bad memories of arriving here. It was my birthday and I genuinely cried when we arrived here. I don't want to give any more time from my day writing about this place. Avoid avoid avoid. I would have rather stayed at a travelodge.

Selected this hotel because of its location close to my meeting the next morning. The entrance was hard to find with absolutely no signs on the road, also the reception was not marked clearly. The room was clean But 2/3 of the lights were out, and damaged to the point where it could be dangerous. The metro was very noisy rumbling through the entire building. Breakfast was likewise very basic, cereals, croissants coffee and juice. The breakfast rom was untidy. With tables un cleared. All in all, it served the purpose a night in Rome for a meeting

Great little pool, balconies with lounge chairs. Great service with Olag who always tried to accommodate us, the others were also good! Some problems with ac and fridge initially then good! Close to metro stops and lots of great caffe shops especially caffetiria Romano , restaurants especially Le Streghe.

The hotel is in a good place, a little bit far from Downtown but very well connected by Subway Line A (Porta Furba station). I had some minor problems (one light and the bath plug were not working). The room was clean, a little bit dark, the bed was OK. Again some minor problems or details, the floor was broken near the bathroom door. Overall the balance between price and quality is good.

Nothing so far from the online photos. Small rooms. Broken furniture. Bathroom with limestone and mold everywhere. Services well down a three stars rating. Prices like three stars hotels closer to the centre. Strongly discouraged.

We were given this Hotel as previous hotel booked went into liquidation... Well I was glad of the change it was indeed a little Oasis in the midts of where the locals lived.For a 3 star hotel we were very impressed ... loved it
