We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights in April 2014. The location is very good: close to the Termini station and many shops and restaurants just around the corner. Staff at the front desk was very friendly and helpful. Our double superior room was OK, clean and spacious. Bathroom newly renovated. There was even a small sauna in the... More

This is a real gem of a hotel to stop in. It is not very expensive, but the quality belies the price. I was met and greeted at reception, who informed me of everything i needed to know, places to visit, how to get there etc. The rooms were really comfortable and well appointed. You also got a free continental... More

This hotel is just down the street from Termini Station which is great because you can always find your hotel after walking in Rome...and getting lost...finding Termini station is easy, thus getting back to this hotel is easy :). Although this is rated a 3-star hotel, I felt the service received was 4-star. Yes, you will not get the amenities... More

After an abhorrent incident at another hotel, we were able to book this hotel for 4 nights and I'm glad we did! The staff could not have been more accommodating to our needs! They didn't have a room available for 3 people, but the cute receptionist (the guy with the beard and glasses) said he could put in a cot... More

My family stayed here fo a couple of nights on an independant excursion from the Amalfi coast. It was just across from the train station where we arrived and the very friendly policeman who showed us across the road could not help singing the song. This is something often repeated when the hotel is mentioned. Taking the bus to most... More

The hotel is well located as it is right in the center and near the train station but the internet access is not good. Is very limited at the front desk. The system for bathing is old, need to fix the shower wall.
