For 4 nights in a 2 bed room , at the end of October 2014,I had to pay 549 euro - booking .com and Hotel home page quoted-ca. 320 euro. My request for a... More

I'm lactose intolerant and the only thing they provided was a cream cheese I could eat and milk. They did not serve breakfast eggs/ham and you only got one pice of bread and one croissant per person. They offered me gluten free options but I had specifically requested lactose free breakfast when I made the reservation. BUT the location is... More

On arrival, we found the reception staff to be very friendly and helpful, even carrying our luggage up the staircase to the 4th floor. On request, we were easily relocated to the 2nd floor, which was much more desirable for obvious reasons. The hotel is charming and very central to the Jewish Quarter, with its fine choice of restaurants and... More

Our family travels quite regularly in Europe from the US and this is a nice, clean, two star hotel right in the middle of the older part of Rome. It is situated very close to the Jewish Quarter which was fun to visit and you are very close to the Pantheon area and even Trestavere. Room was clean, bath small... More

Great value for the location of this hotel - the old Jewish Ghetto is a neat place to stay. This hotel may have not had much "charm", it definitely felt more like a "hotel", but it had everything that we needed and we don't spend much time in the hotel anyway! The room was clean and simple and had a... More

The outstanding feature of this hotel is the location. Minutes from the Jewish Ghetto (great food!), Campo de Fiori Market and close to most of Rome's major sites. The price is good, has an elevator, Wifi that actually works, comfortable. Overall a great hotel.

The only good thing about this hotel is the location right by the jewish getto. And of all the hotels you can chose in Rome, don't chose this one! It's just trerrible; Beds hard as a rock, the room and the blancets wasn't clean. Very noisy form the street. You couldn't deside when to eat breakfast, but where "booked in"... More

Excellent location, in the Jewish Ghetto, and very near Campo dei Fiori, Trastevere and Piazza Venezia. The staff were helpful. Other than that, the hotel is very modest. It has 4 floors without a lift, so if you are steps-weary I wouldn't pick this hotel. The rooms were tiny, but well-equipped. Breakfast buffet was OK, not much variety but of... More
