The location is awful, in a very unsafe part of Rome which is horrible after dark. We arrived at 10pm to find our room had been double booked and the man on reception was unable to explain what was going on. After 20 minutes someone else arrived and told us that we would just have to find somewhere else and... More

Right near the train station and under new management with great staff! Reception area is nice and welcoming. Had some difficulty to find it the first time. There is no flag out front only a plack on the front of the building. Then it's up on the second floor of an old building but there is an elevator.

The locaion of the hotel was terrible. It is the back of Roma Termini which is not a secure, we felt uncomfortable when we were walking around the street. Besides, the toilet was smelly and the flush was not working. Finally, although the sheets were changed, they were not clean at all.However the owner of the hotel was very helpful... More

We spent 4 nights at the hotel. Excelent location but very poor service for the high price they charge. Linens and towels were changed only upon request and applied as "self service"; tiny and most unconvenient bathroom; poor breakfast; broken furniture and no service at the loby after breakfast although facility exsits (hot drink was available only the last day)....

This is a budget hotel with good location. And that is all about it. Don't expect too much. The picture shown is misleading, the actual condition is more of a disappointment. But again, this is a budget hotel. The only upside is that it is within minutes from Termini station. The bed is not clean enough. If you're trip only... More

We stayed 2 nights to this hotel in Rome we stayed 2 years ago. Big mistake! It has changed in a bad way! The room we were given was dirty, with bad light and only 1 towel provided placed on the toilet. Showing our dissatisfaction we were offered a new room, "the penthouse" which is on the 5th floor. This... More

The hotel is dirty, doesn't work anything. Just a few example: We couldn't use the toilet for the first 2 days,the matresses are very old and uncomfortable, the cleaner knocked the door 9 o'clock and we had to weak up. I think a camping has a better quality. Please don't go there!

The pics this hotel posts are very misleading. Do not expect the bright rooms shown. They are dark, dingy and dusty. The seat on the toilet was broke as was the television. When we asked for towels for the room (none were present when we checked in) we were told they would bring them in 30 minutes. Never happened. Ends... More

The hotel was dirty, dusty. Dirty towels, bads, sheets, everything. Old ragged blankets. Some of the crew members were nice, but there was one that I just couldn't believe. I have to leave the hotel in the middle of the night to try to find a medicine for my wife, as she had a terrible headache. When I returned the... More
