I was to say the least a little apprehensive about this hotel after reading previous reviews BUT on arriving at this hotel-which is only a few steps away from the Termini train station, I was relieved to find it above my expectations. My son and I stayed here for a week and found the room clean, the beds comfy, the... More

I don't know if things have changed recently but I honestly believe that people expect too much from a 2 STAR HOTEL. The hotel was quite lovely. The manager was great, upgrading our room for free from a shared bathroom to a private. The room was cleaned every day, everything placed into neat piles. The only problem we had was... More

You have a comfy bed, A hot shower and its only 2mn walk to Roma Termini which means EVERYTHING is just outside the front door. Manager was so lovely every time we saw him. We had no problems whatsoever. Our room was very clean as was our bathroom. Both my husband and I would go back.

Very well located.... and staff very polite... place more or less clean... Commun bathroom, TV out of use... but this was not the main problem. Street hawkers, deals of all kinds took place in the entrance of the hotel, while the reception is in the 2nd floor. The sellers store their goods and sleep at night in the entrance. A... More

Hotel was promoted by Hotels.com. it is OK for a night if you are tired and need somewhere to crash. No hot water guarantee. It is well situated if you need to catch a connection from Termini. Staff was quite responsive but powerless to help. Bathroom needs major work though it is clean.

Fantastic proximity to Termini railway station.The hotel was easy to find, even late at night when we arrived. Booking stated free wifi but we could not connect to the wifi. The room catered for our needs. The shared bathroom needed repairs.
