Its a cheap hotel and you almost get less than you pay for still. Food is poor, no internet (we bought a code for 3 hours, but I didnt reallt work), no poweroutlets and we were not able to pay by card - only cash. The cleaning of the rooms were good though.

I strongly suggest you to stay away from this hotel. I stayed with my 3 kids for a week there. First, the reception staff was really unpolite. There was a night when we were returning from dinner in which a young lady was complaning about the broken hairdrier in her room, and after some minutes she got yelled at by... More

A hotel with good location, not far from metro station. Small rooms and poor food. Our bathroom was leaking. The staff was not so helpful but they were polite. Good breakfast but a very poor dinner with no variety. Only pasta.

Just got back from rome on a short break, this hotel is fairly well located within the old walls, a short walk from the metro station which takes you to the centre. Firstly, what a city, wow! So much to see, you really don't stay in the hotel long. The hotel was fine, good helpfull staff on the front desk,... More

Location is good. When not too lazy its within a walking distance to Termini station and even coliseum. Like some previous reviews indicated. Our bathroom was leaking on the floor as well but that was not a big problem. The toilet was in a very weird and uncomfortable spot. It was in a corner between shower and bidet. So you... More

We stayed at this hotel for one night. Despite some poor reviews we thought that it was comfortable and reasonably placed for the city. I can imagine that some people have been put off by the work going on at the Hotel. Our room was small but had all the basics and the bed was comfy. We had a view... More

It was a complete disappointment staying in this hotel. We spent 3 nights in this hotel and I would never recommend this hotel to anyone. However, every hotel has some pros and cons, so let’s start with some good things: a) location of the hotel is very nice, tram and bus stops are few steps and nearest metro (Manzoni station)... More

After looking at the other reviews most people would be put off, but this is a budget hotel. The hotel is out the way, would say quite a rough area, but is only a 15 minute walk from the centre and Termini. This is probably the only put off I had with the hotel. Bar is lovely, outside and great... More

Don't waste your Euro in this place. Horrible from start to finish. Good location... Sort of. Lobby is nice. That is all. Not even sure where to start. The place is overrun with students on holiday. Loud and dirty. Our room was small and beds hard and uncomfortable. Break was was horrible with hard rolls and dirty plates and mediocre... More
