I have been 3 nights to this hotel and i found a big room cleaned and with lcd tv and free wifi. The location is perfect because it is very closed to the main train station and to the metro. Centre of rome is very near and personnel of reception was very kind with me , particularly a nice blond... More

Great location! 5 minutes walking distance from the Termini station. Very friendly and attentive staff, clean rooms - perfect hotel for those who are looking for cheap and clean room for a few days in Rome :) Good value for money!

I stayed at this place with two friends for four nights. We came here late on a sunday night. The old man in the reception was quite friendly but he tried to charge us double city tax. I don't know if it was a simple calculation mistake or if he actually meant it. Our room, #107, was in the front... More

We had booking with ConteHouse, but they moved us to this cheap hotel.The customer service is so bad, we even spoke to the boss because we originally have breakfast included in our booking. And he was rude. There are no wifi in rooms (only in the lobby). Everything is old and even my room door was hard to open. Terrible... More

Having read these reviews before I travelled, I was rather dubious about what I was going to experience. However, I was rather surprised! We stayed up in the hotel section on the fourth floor, in which our room featured beds that were surprisingly comfortable, air conditioning, mini fridge and tv, all of which were functioning well. The en-suite bathroom was... More

We chose to stay here because we needed a cheap hotel close to Termini station. This place was miserable to say the least, it felt a bit like a prison. On the up side, the sheets were clean and the location was good. However the shared bathrooms were filthy, I don't think they had been cleaned in a very long... More

If you are expecting a good atmosphere, that's not the place to stay, except if you only want sleep without noise. It's very cheap regarding the location, but it's just this. The bathrooms are not cleaned properly, and there is no wifi in the badrooms as well as suggestions and recomendations from the staff.

It's a shame - as the staff were very friendly and really tried to help - but in the end our 4 night stay turned to 2 and that was 2 too many. The shower was stinking and did not work - it was either frightening freezing or even more frightening scalding and you just had to turn it on... More

Dorm was not great : clean but no working socket in the room and no real character. Dirty showers (we hesitated walking bare feet...) and clogged sink. Toilets which tend to be disgusting... Some mattresses need to be changed. Apart from that, friendly staff. Possibility to leave valuable items safe with the staff. Great location if you arrive/depart from Roma... More
