Excellent Staff
Excellent Staff/ Location/ Wonderful Receptionist.
The place was very close to the St Peter's church & easily accessible to many transport facilities such as bus or metro. I am frequent traveler & have traveled around to many places & stayed at a variety of hotels which can be rated from no star to 5 star. But I have never come across a staff who is so very helpful & goes not only the extra mile but miles & miles to assist the customer. There is this beautiful lady ( In the hurry I forgot to take her name) at the reception who have assisted us through out our stay & especially during our exit in arranging our rest of the train journey reservations. She took it upon as her personal responsibility in assisting me by filling up the forms & booking the tickets. I was accompanied by wife/parents( In Wheelchair) & in laws. We all were amazed at the hospitality & willingness this young lady did in helping us out. This hotel is value for money as per the amenities & facilities provided but if you add the value of this staff in particular she makes it a wonderful experience better than any 5 star hotels I have stayed in my entire life. The other staff in this hotel are pretty helpful but this staff in particular is the most outshining of the entire crew there. She will be the main reason why on my next visit I will be staying there or recommend this place to my references. She is doing a wonderful job & I hope she keeps climbing up the ladder of success in her personal & professional life.

Quiet, Interesting and friendly staff.
Friendly & helpful staff, Wifi connection superb and good location to Vatican city and Metro station (to Rome).
It was very peaceful and quiet. The receptionist was very polite and helpful. Strategic location towards Rome City and very near to Vatican City (by the side of the wall). Easy access to good surrounding good local food restaurant.Also easy access to email since the Wifi connection is available in the room (superb service). But the room on a little to small for family. As for a single or dual, this is OK if you only spend your time to sleep at the end of the day (small room and toilet). Parking space limited (recommend to inform the hotel before you drive there). Other then that, the hotel has a very good location for sightseeing vacation/ tour as the place of interest is all in the walking distance radius.

nice but super small hotel
friendly staff and great breakfast
this lovely hotel is very near to the sightsighting place, near to the metro and some nice resto , there are also many nice small shops, including souvenior shops, small convenience stores, nice pizza cafe and close to the church. This hotel is great for couples and business travellers alike. however, you gotta choose the rooms carefully and some categories are super super small and may be uncomfortable. Just need to make sure you clarify somehow what you are gettin. As a suite for 1 , may be not really a suite, but rather a small tiny room. If you want some decent normal comfort, get a " suite for 2-3 people". that would make it a normal sized room for at least one person

location, kitchenette, price
I booked this hotel mainly for the kitchenette, free wifi, private bathroom, and proximity to the metro for an ok price. The rooms, however, were pretty mediocre. The room was strangely decorated with a green spongy floor, cork walls, pink tiles, and random hooks all over. The bathroom was extremely cramped with a bidet in front of the toilet, so there was no toilet paper holder, so they had to put it on an extremely high shelf. The light switches were oddly placed puzzles and the lights were very dim. There were lights above our bed that stayed dimly lit all night long and we couldn't turn them off. The beds were ok (2 twins pushed together), but my husband had a fluffy pillow and I had a lumpy, flat one. Rooms were supposed to include wifi and tv, but the TV was antenna, and all the stations were fuzzy and in Italian. Wifi barely worked. When we asked the front desk, they knew it didn't work. The worst part though was the smell. At some point the room started to smell like an airplane bathroom. We told the front desk that our room "smelled funny." When we described it, he said "that doesn't surprise me." He offered to move us to a room that was 1/4 the size of our current room, but that was their last effort to rectify the problem. Eventually, I suspected the air conditioner and turned it off. Unfortunately, it was hot, so we had to keep our first floor windows open. This was unpleasant since people standing near the entrance could look into our room and wake us up with loud conversations. As I was trying to checkout to make my train, there was a woman talking to the receptionist, so she told me to wait. As I stood there, another woman looking to checkout came by and jingled her keys. The 1st woman left, and she proceeded to help the woman who came after me. The receptionist was flustered, but I asked her how much. She said "don't rush me so early in the morning. When I gave her money, she had difficulty making change and told me I'm using all her mon

Pleasantly Surprised with Very Friendly Staff
Walking distance to main attractions (St.Peter's Basilica & Vatican Museum)
Pleasantly surprised!. We arrived at night. The reception staff was very friendly and helpful. Check-in processing was fast and smooth too. The room, again pleasantly surprised. It is not your typical hotel-like room, but still it is comfortable, clean, neat and really nothing to complain about. We were really making ourselves comfortable here. A few days after our stay and we are about to leave for another city, the reception staff even helped us to perform on-line flight check-in and printed out our check-in slips, as we have difficulty accessing our ipad then. Hotel is within walking distance to a number of cafes/restaurants/self-service laundry and grocery stores. It is also within walking to distance to an underground train station. It is also within walking distance to St.Peter's Basilica and Vatican Museum.

Good location by Vatican,tiny self contained room
location near metro, vatican and shops
it was fairly easy to find from the metro station, not too difficult to walk to even with lots of heavy luggage. the room itself was very tiny, but it had everything for self catering. with a supermarket nearby, we bought oven baked and microwave meals to cook in the evening. which saved us from having to go out for a meal at night with a young toddler. they only give you clean towels once every 4 days, so we had to reuse the same towels. the staff was ok, although when i asked for the safe to be unlocked, nobody ever turned up. so i had to carry my valuables with me everywhere in rome. which made me paranoid about other people standing too close to me the whole time. the wifi signal was never strong enough in my room, so i had to go to reception or the courtyard to use it. sometimes it was weak even in those areas. overall the location was the best thing going for it and it was a good base for sightseeing in rome.
