        The hotel is clean and safe. It is not a luxory hotel but you know it by its prices. It is all right. With bus and metro it is easy to access the city centre. The breakfast was also alright. Nothing fancy but a very good start for a long day in the city. I was satisfied. The staff was also kind and nice. Thank you!

        Not satisfied”

        I stayed in this hotel for couple of nights. Hotel was okay. Pros 1) Staff available 24 hours Cons 1) Both the metro station are 800 meters from hotel 2) Nearest bus stop where bus 310 runs but frequency is very low 3) Worst part was in Hotel room, pipes of electrical wire and water pvc pipes were open and running on walls and not inside wall. Heating plates were also open in the room. These are not good things to see in hotel room. 4) Another worst part is they are charging city tax 4 euro per person per night. I asked them why 4 euro where as other hotels are charging less then answer was this is 3 star hotel :):) 5) Breakfast was not much delightful I would definitely not recommend this hotel

        i accidentally booked on a wrong day and attended for check-in one day earlier. Overnight Staff was extremely nice and they accommodated me in a free double room (i booked a single). Very basic but clean and close to central Rome, tube and train station.

        No A/C, No Lift.. and Mosquitos”

        I was there for 3 nights and were one of the worst experience of my life. The weather was bit hot, not very hot, the window was opened as there was no A/C and I had to deal with Mosquitos. I also have a video. When I mentioned this to the staff they said they don't have any other room, they will change in the morning. they didn't. There was no mention on the Page that A/C is not included. This hotel is on the FIRST FLOOR and there is no LIFT. So had to carry the luggage. It took 20 mins to the receptionist to find my room because they had change the numbers and I had to go 1 floor up. Anyway. I am not going to stay here. P.S after that I fell sick which made whole trip miserable.

        Stayed 2 nights in October 2013

        dont believe the photo's ”

        it had a portable airconditioning unit, it had a balcony, reception area was nice (that's what was shown in the photo!)

        overpriced and over rated, very poor breakfast, it's a work in progress i think as the "hotel" shares the building with private appartments pretty fragmented and the quality of finish in the rooms is not great. the en-suites very small,cramped and poorly serviced as the shower tray waste failed to cope with the water flow from the showerhead. it was a place that i feel i was mis sold and certainly don't feel as if i received value for money.

        If you want to have super budget hotels this may be for you. Small, unfunctional TV and WiFi (even though we were told it is going to be fixed but that didn't happen throughout 4 days of stay), lift doesn't work and surprisingly no bidet! Breakfast was fine but limited options and only positive I could say they got supermarket and fast food, Pizza a Taglio Delizie al Forno, nearby.

        Very good value for money!”

        This hotel was not centrally located in Rome. It's 2-3 stations away from Termini - which is probably why this hotel was cheaper compared to the ones in Termini. But I like how generally quiet the location was. But despite its proximity to the city center, I had a very pleasant stay in the hotel. There are 3 stations within a 10-minute walk so transportation was not a problem. My room was very clean and spacious. The bed was big for one person and it was comfortable. I love the fact that my room had a balcony. There was a fridge, which was convenient. Breakfast was just so-so. A croissant, coffee, and some cookies, so don't expect much. Overall, I enjoyed my stay here and if ever I come back to Rome, I would definitely stay here again.
