After the bad reviews that we have seen here it was a very a reasonable choice and a good experience. Nice and tidy room with great view from the 5th floor balcony for a fair price. We got cleaning, fresh towels and soaps every morning. The room's condition is not like in a new built hotel but it is absolutely... More

Very close to main station and amenities. Hotel reached via stairs or tiny lift, once you are able to get into the building. Took a while for them to answer intercom. Once inside we were asked if we would like a drink prior to checking in. Room adequate for needs and exactly as pictured on website. Breakfast room very small... More

Good breakfast, but rooms are close to the front lobby where people talk. But it was a cheap place to stay. Little hard to find, and it is near some really shady people at the train station so be careful. When you walk through the giant doors you feel like you are in some old abandoned house, then you must... More

We stayed for one night in july. Room stunk of smoke but this wasn't clear until the smell of washing detergent had set. Blood on the wall. Handle for the bathroom broken. An overall dirty feeling and I was surprised that I didn't see a cockroach. The room I stayed in wasn't as fresh as the pictures suggested. The only... More

I stayed at this hotel in June 2014, and the room I was given had bed bugs crawling on the walls. I went to the front desk to inquire about a different room, but no one was there to help me. It was a terrible experience, and I would never wish it on anyone else. I hope this review informs... More

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)....
