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

My wife & I stayed here for 2 nights on arriving in Italy 4/5 May and then again for 1 night 3 weeks later. We were with a small group tour and this hotel seems to cater for group bookings. As our stay was part of a package I am not sure what the cost was, but unless it was... More

Hotel is a little bit out of the city centre but it is only a few metro stops away but it takes 10 mins to walk from the hotel to the stAtion. Hotel was okay. Nothing special. We bought off Hotwire and it said we would have free wifi but when we got there the staff told us it would... More

3* Star Hotel management switched off water to all rooms one night (not too pleasant after whole day stroll) Hotel rooms looked like monk cells, bathrooms even worse. All hotel is totally run down. Terrifying experience

Hotel is outside all tourist activity and the neighborhood is very dirty. It is situated on a very busy intersection so traffic is constant. While there is a bus stop right in front, you will have to walk several blocks to reach the metro station. Room was average, but it served its purpose because we did not spend much time... More

Tried to organise a surprise for my niece's birthday. Sent emails and money to organise wine etc and they didn't oblige. I know they had recieved my details as they hadn't confirmed the room until they recieved my email. Very disappointing.

Arrived as the sun was setting at the piazza maggiore overlooking ancient ruins of a gate to rome and its aqueducts. The hotel staff were pleasant and helpful. Although they informed us our room wouldnt be ready for 2 hours they played around and got us in another room straight away. Room was well set out with a beautiful view... More

We stayed here with a coach group. It is the worst place we have ever stayed in. The room was stuffy and not airconditioned. If the window was open to allow "fresh" air in, the traffic noise was diabolical and constant all night. The hallways were badly lit and filthy. The state of the walls inside the room were not...
