It only takes about 5mins walk from the termini to the hotel. Check-in all went well. We arrived Rome at 12pm on Mon, 9th June. However, when we went into our room, we can't switch on the air-con, we can only switch on the ceiling fan! To switch on the air-con, we have to rent the remote for Euro10 a... More

What you get at this hotel is not nearly what you probably would expect. The rooms are in terrible condition and your stomach will turn when paying full price for this. The pictures below will illustrate my point.

A hopelessly overpriced hotel that lies without shame on their website and on booking sites. This is absolutely not recommendable. I paid 125? for a triple room a night with mold on the celing, broken refrigiator, broken elevator, broken tiles, lousy cleaning and so on. Do not go there!

Check your hotel room before you stay anywhere! That is what I learned from this hotel. We paid for the night and then went to our room and saw it was not that great. We asked for a refund right away and they said no. It was our last night so we sucked it up. The toilet was strange because... More

We left after 20 minutes but still had to pay €64. Decided that it was worth it just to get away. The room was damp, stank of stale urine and the walls were covered in thick black mildew. The toilet was in the shower. When we complained and asked for another room we were told that we could move the... More

We stayed in the Hotel Altavilla because it was close to the train station. The room was clean but bare bones. It looked nothing like the brochure. The staff was very helpful and breakfast was just fine.

I stayed here with my sister and it was absolutely awful. Nothing like they described it online. Our sheets had blood stains they never turned down out beds. The room was dirty. No wifi only in the lobby. I would not recommend this to anyone!
