On arrival we were offered the king bed. The room was comfortable and presented well. The staff (non Italian nationals) were friendly and helpful. The breakfast offering... More

This hotel has everything a tourist to Rome will need. The rooms are clean, the staff is friendly and the breakfast that is included every morning is ample. The hotel is a short walk from Termini Station, no need to take a cab.

The location made it easy to get to the hotel from the airport and the metro. We were able to walk to most of the attractions. The rooms were a good size and clean. The staff was very helpful in finding us everything we wanted to see in Rome. Breakfast was ok.
