Disappointing, we expected more
First of all, the hotel was under renovation, so at 7:30 AM already hear the noise there is work and people who speak directly to the window there is the room. In the area of the workers elevator there is _ _ it all day up and down, this noise bothers those who simply terrible situation. We wanted to use the hotel's sauna- Turkish bath did not work at all. The regular sauna did not work until we started it but to warm up took half an hour - very disappointing! The hotel is well located for those who need to use the bus or train station, Termini. Hotel bit far from the city center (about 15 minutes walk) but you can take the bus. The hotel has no private parking for those who came by car and if you will need to park, they turn you into a nearby parking lot at a cost of 35 euros a day (found at the end of another parking In the area at a price of 18 euros per day)

Good location, old Hotel
Good location near Termini Station, clean room and comfortable bed. The staff speaks very well english and french.
The hotel is clean, so is the room but you can feel the age of the hotel on the furniture and the shower. Breakfast is okay for a 3 stars hotel not a 4. Staff are friendly except one person who totally ignore us. Good location of the hotel : 5 min to Termini Station which is very convenient for the train to the airport (Leonardo Express) and the subway (line A and B).

city break
good points about this hotel are central location, close to Termini station and cleanliness. Bad points: it said on webside about hotel facilities such as steam room and turkish sauna, both were not working when we decided to use it one evening. Breakfast area is small and getting crowded easily. In our double room for two guests it was only one set of toiletries, tea bags and coffies which I found very strange. We had to ask for additional goods on arrival thinking that it would be all repleneshed the next day for two of us but found that it wasn't the case, everything was replaced in singles again. I am a regular traveller and I have never experienced this problem before in the 4 star hotel. I won't be staying in Universo again next time in Rome.

Mostly it is good. But the room is bit small and the table is also too small/narrow, not very convenient for business travelers.
