Exceeded my expectations, very clean, shared bathrooms. The room was not too big, but it was very clean and the window was big, it had a mirror and sink, so you can brush your teeth, etc. without leaving the room. It is very near to Termini Station, we had no problem walking down with huge suitcases. The owner/reception desk was... More

We stayed at this accommodation for 1 night , I can firmly say I had a great time . I would start to talk about the location, the reason why I chose it in fact is just 300 meters away from the Roma Termini train station just 3 minutes walk away, so it is very convenient for getting around the...

If you are looking for a centrally located, cheap and simple place to sleep in, Pensione Giamaica is a good choice! The room was spacious, clean and there was a sink and a mirror which was nice since the bathrooms were shared. The room was simply decorated with framed red art posters on green walls. Furniture brought in mind an... More

Visited here at the end of 2009 on a backpacking trip around Europe with a friend. The price is unbeatable for the location, very central - 2mins from the main train and bus terminal, 10 mins to the colosseum, 15 mins to the Spanish steps. We arrived at about 9am on a night train, the Signora who runs this place... More

I stayed here a long time ago, in October, 2003 (not 2010). It was very cheap, 25 euros plus 2 for breakfast, which was quite good (coffee, juice, 2 big loaves of bread, jam, butter and Nutella). Signora Silvia, the nice old owner, even added a piece of fruit, just for me, when I told her I was traveling on... More

We came across this hotel just by chance and would highly recommend it for travellers on a budget. The quirky owner is a really nice man with a kind heart. He speaks good english and is happy to help out whenever you need it. The rooms are big and airy and the bathrooms clean and functional. If you want to... More

I read the mixed reviews so was a bit apprehensive, but with the good price I decided to go for it and stay there. My partner and I stayed there for 4 nights. It was clean, had a good location right by Termini train station and just around the block from an internet place. The mother and her son (I... More

I really wanted to like this place because the older woman running it is so sweet. Loved her. Unfortunately she was the only highlight. Her son was a pain. He is like the Bill Heder character on SNL who interviews in Italian. The room was fine, but had to keep window open in hot summer and I got so many... More
