Handy for railway and metro stations and buses, Good value for money. Comfortable bed. Only 3 hangers each! Breakfast cheese and ham no bacon and egg. Bread tough - I ate cake! Lift did not reach breakfast room in basement.

Stayed with my husband and teenage daughters. Great a/c room. Several reasonably priced restaurants very close with fabulous food. Handy for termini and as Rome is a relatively small city, many of the tourist attractions are within walking distance. If going to visit Vatican City make sure you take something to cover your arms and legs as my eldest daughter... More

Our family of 4 stayed in the california first week of september for 2 nights prior to moving on the Sorrento. We got the train from Rome airport which was quick, nearly missed the connection though and would have had to wait another half an hour.

I traveled as a couple with my wife, and I asked for hotel close to the train station, and I was awarded such a great hotel, it's less than 5 minutes walking from inside the train station, 3 minutes from outside, located in a busy location, most shops stay a bit late in this area. The hotel itself is awesome,... More

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 lovely hotel to stay in. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was great .It is very central, close to Termini station and to the city bus tours. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The staff took time to talk to the children which i found to be a real bonus. I would recommend... 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
