Very close to termini Station so great if you are arriving on a late flight or train. Staff were very helpful and provided me information on sightseeing in Rome as well as a map. Room was very big and clean. Great shower. Breakfast was good too. Would recommend if you would like to stay in termini area.

The rooms are large, modern and clean! Added to this the service received was second to none! Luigi on the front desk was more than happy to attend to all of our requests along with the other front end staff always welcoming us when we arrived. The roof top bar is a great place to start and end the day!... More
