Very friendly staff worked with us to stay two extra days, plus stored our luggage for free when we asked. Excellent breakfast buffet--far superior to other hotels in Italy. Rooms were quiet and spacious. Great value.

I was looking for something close to the train station and found this hotel online. When walking there it seemed like it was an a sketchy area with a lot of loiters on the streets surrounding the hotel. We were only staying here for one night, but wish we could have found something else. The room was freezing and we... More

Good hotel Plus: 1. Nice, spacious, clean rooms 2. Tasty breakfast. 3. Nice view from the window - feeling like in the center of Rome. 4. Railway station, Metro Station, big bus stop is 5 minutes away. 5. Free wifi. Cons: 1. On the street noisy. 2. The center really long walk.

This hotel is amazing 300 meters from the Termini, walking distance. All the staff are cheerful, helpful and friendly, nothing is too much trouble from timetables to finding a place on the maps with best way to get there, local good restaurants etc. Lisa is an amazing receptionist, keep up the good work you are an asset to the hotel...

Don't stay here if you don't have to. We were disappointed with this Hotel. On check-in we were told that we were staying at another Hotel around the corner that night due to air conditioning problems (and that hotel was better the San Marco). We checked in the next morning and were on the 4th floor, with 1 small elevator... More

We stayed here for three nights in March 2013. The room was clean and had a small balcony overlooking the street. 5 minutes walk to the metro and the railway station. A 20 minute walk to the forum and historic centre down via nationale. There is a pleasant bar next door to the hotel and many other bars and restaurants... More

We stayed here as a couple in October 2012, and were suprised by the size of the room, and how light and airy it was. The bathroom was also a good size, however lacked a bath which would be useful after a long days walking, and there was certainly room. The double bed was two singles, but made up using... More

Stayed for four days on a short break. The hotel has seen better days but it's central location, five minutes from Termini, and the excellent staff make it well worth a visit. Yes the lift is tiny and slow, the shower had a mind of it's own but breakfast was adequate and the staff could not have been more helpful.... More
