Cons: Don't know what it would be. Location: The Colosseum, Roman Forum, the Pantheon, and Palatine Hill just to mention a few were within walking distance. Easy access to the metro, and train We were so glad we chose this hotel. It was close to a number of ancient attractions, the subway, and metro lines. All of the hotel staff... More

I couldn't recommend this hotel highly enough if you're thinking of visiting Rome. 5 mins walk from the colosseum but located in a quiet street with hardly any noise, especially good when you're having a drink on the rooftop terrace !! The helpfulness of the staff is superb. Nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are clean, comfortable and well... More

As other negative reviewers mentioned, except for the breakfast lounge, most of staffs looked like irritated. Receptions often ignored our greetings. The atmosphere was uncomfortable and unhappy. I expected this hotel would be nice referring to Tripadviser, though. Additionally I was so disappointed to read manager's responses against negative opinions in this web site. They are haughty as know. They... More

As most of you have already seen, this hotel is located close to the Colosseum, so easy to get to many of points of interest in Rome. The hotel is very clean, with a good/decent breakfast. Again the same paradox for me in Italy: no fresh juice at the breakfast, in a country with a lot of fruits trees. Bathroom... More

Ideally located in quiet area close to Colosseum. Friendly, efficient service. English speaking. Very clean and modern. Would recommend highly. Lots of lesser known attractions nearby, within walking distance. Cannot comment on restaurant as this was closed, which we had not expected. €10 taxi to Termini.

This hotel was really nice. They have a rooftop restaurant and you can see the coliseum from the hotel. We took pictures and ate on the rooftop. You can all see some of Rome from the rooftop. You can walk around from the hotel to shops, the park and restaurants. The staff helped up with excursions and airport travel. This... More
