Great place for the money! Adorable place only about 15 minute walk to the Colosseum! Great breakfast in the morning. If you are the type of traveler that likes to get the most out of your money, this is a perfect find!

The hotel was close to some attractions such as the spanish steps, the Colossei and Emanuele Vittorio monument and the Metro station. The rooms were clean and the staff were pleasant. This hotel is suitable for a person with limitted budget but may chose a room with full instead of twin bed

The room was extremely small. Location was good. It was listed as a 4 star hotel but based on my experience it was more like a 2 star hotel.

A little further from a metro station than we originally thought it would be, but we still walked there with luggage, and it wasnt too bad. The common areas are nice and clean, and the breakfast (food and outdoore seating area) were awesome, the best of our 3 week trip! We arrived early, and did not expect to check in early, but they let us change clothes and get cleaned up in the lobby bathroom and held our luggage for us. BUT when we did get back to the hotel later that night, at like 11:00pm, our luggage was still sitting in the lobby, they had not taken it to the room, and we ended up having to take it up ourselves. Kinda of disconcerting to know our bags were sitting out where other people could get to them for 12 hours.

Yes tooth brush and tooth paste. Milk was terrible. The one staff dealing with breakfast tries to clean up the mess all the time after the guests in order to open up some clean tables- since the breakfast tables have a number of around 8 she works very anxiously. The breafast plates should be brought to a tray by the guests after they finish eating. By this token, the staff could concentrate on being more friendly rather than running around and just making noise as the guests eat. The noise and the unfriendliness of the breakfast staff was really disturbing.

I made a reservation for a single person room, but they actually gave me a room for two persons by accident. They asked me if I wanted to take a look at the "correct" room one day after which was pretty small, but they still let me stay in the bigger room for the same price anyway. The AC of the room I was supposed to get was actually broken and they only had a temporary electric fan. The room iself was clean and quiet. It was the same at another hotel in Florence so it might be a common thing in Italy, but one complaint I have is that when I asked them to keep my baggage for several hours, they asked me to place it in a common area where anyone can enter. Nothing bad happened in the end, but I didn't feel very safe about it.

On a deserted, dark, dirty street garbage piled up in front of next building at all times between two metro stations so at least a 15 minute walk to either difficult if older or have difficulty walking Wonderful breakfast and staff room spotless very small space immaculate bathroom

We stayed at the hotel in Rome's off season. The hotel is well located in that it's an easy walk to the bus station where one should go if one wants to get a seat most times of the day and the adjoining main train station which is good for airport transfers as well as excursions. Rome's two subway lines also connect at the station. The hotel staff is efficient if a bit restrained. There is a nice lounge with newspapers just off the breakfast room where the morning buffet is served. There is an abundance of food and an adequate number of tables all kept in fine order by a super-efficent woman who takes obvious pride in her work. An outdoor terrace is used in warm weather to supplement breakfast seating. Our room was on the fourth floor with a wonderful view. It was adequate in size with armoir storage,had a tv with limited reception,a desk and chair,no upholstered chairs or real seating area. The bathroom was modern,tiled in marble,had a shower(no tub)and plenty of towels and necessities. Water pressure and drainage were typical of that in older buildings.

The room could hardly accommodate 2 suitcases but we did not allow this to bother us as we were out all day. Thankfully, it did not rain to keep us inside. Thanks for a recently refurbished bathroom, beautifully tiled and well appointed. The carpet in the bedroom needs changing, however. Thanks to the location we were able to use the Metro, which was about a 6-8 minutes walk away, to go to wherever we wanted, even to as far as the Vatican. Several restaurants nearby facilitated our dinner arrangements. We were even able to attend a classical concert at the Chiesa San Paolo Entre Muro, 10 minutes walk from the hotel. We loved breakfasting in the garden among the twittering birds, even though the bees were a nuisance.

Viminale was in a location that was very convenient to the Termini train station. Staff was friendly and helpful. Room was classic European (small), but well kept. Had a nice balcony on the 4th floor just down the hall from the room. Internet was very expensive. On Saturday, an open air market setup just down the street.
