Stayed for 3 nights. Nice room, great location, friendly staff. However the breakfast was poor every day (coffee from vending machine in plastic cups, no fruit, stale cereal, no toaster) and this is the noisiest hotel I've ever stayed in. External noise is not a problem, however noise from the corridors, stairwell, lift and the extremely loud cleaning staff first... More

Train station/bus near by. Close to turists sights, santa maria maggiore church one block away, neighborhood is ok, good restaurants in the area. I would stay here and definitely recommend this hotel, room was decent size and comfortable.

Great for people who are arriving and departing from Roma Termini station. Recommended for short stays. Cozy rooms but be aware that some of the toilets have glass windows so do specify if you want the conventional toilet type. For couples it might be acceptable but if you are staying with someone else it might be very inconvenient. Breakfast was... More

A rather slow and single lift and rather cramped (albeit temporary) breakfast arrangements did not detract from tour stay at this hotel for the Italy v England international weekend. Typical Italian (slow!) check in procedures delayed our night out but, the hotel made up for it. Would recommend it for all sorts of groups. It is a 5 minute walk... More

The hotel is really great value for the price. The rooms were clean and lovely and the staff is very helpful. The breakfast is fine but you have to tell the staff the night before when you want to eat because there are not always enough tables for everyone. The location is extremely close to the Termini station which is... More

This is a very conveniently located hotel. Our room was comfortable and large enough, with minimalist, but practical furniture and comfy beds. The mini-bar was spacious enough to store our fresh fruit too. Internet connection was free. Bathroom appliances were new and in top condition and everything was spotlessly clean. Breakfast was good and varied enough for a few days’... More

Very comfortable hotel. Everything is very good, the staff, the facilities, the location, the Wi-Fi. We stayed in this hotel only 3 nights, after holidays in Ischia, but I will definitely stay in this hotel again!
