Lucky we only booked for 2 nights and it was one of the worst stay we had in Italy. Were given room no. 205 and the room reeked of sewage smell that was coming out from the hole in the shower. We have to shut the bathroom door tightly each time or we are unable to sleep. Breakfast was fair... More

Ok to start with the positive, the sheets were clean and white and the towels fluffy. It is really close ( a few minutes walk ) to the train termini and buses which is good if you are travelling early in the morning as we were. And there the positive ends. First thing we did on entering the room was... More

I have over 22 years experience as a tour guide. I've stayed in over 200 hotels. I've been many times in Rome, but I've never been in a worse hotel than this one. The rooms are dirty and miserable. At the reception desk stands a sulky Italian with glasses. If you do not speak Italian you have a problem. I... More

I find the reviews on this hotel a bit harsh. We stayed there in mid-May. It was clean, quiet and had a modern bathroom. Its best feature is the proximity to Rome Termini (and with all the luggage we had, that was a blessing!) Evie on reception was pleasant. The breakfast was good. What do people want for 100 euros...

We were not very pleased with the first room at this hotel. The double bed was more like a king single, The shower was a very tight fit and very dirty with mould, the toilet seat was broken and the whole place needed a good clean. I was less than happy with the staff member that we took our concerns... More

If you want something cheap and cheerful, and a hotel close to transport connections throughout the city of Rome and outside, this hotel is the place to be. Its quite good value for money, with simple though clean rooms and not a fuzzy breakfast: simply warm drink, juices and water,bread, ham and cheese and sweet pastries...typically italian anyhow. Lift and... More

Walked back to hotel. Had a drink in the lounge, beer,wine, soft drinks and coffee. Our room had a large double comfy bed , Tv... More

My husband booked a two night stay in this hotel in Rome for my birthday in October. The hotel looked lovely from the outside although very basic on the inside and in need of a good make over. We were greeted with an Italian receptionist who at first was a little abrupt. Perhaps it was the language barrier? Indeed we... More

What can I say, what haven't been already said? I can only recommend this hotel to those who don't want to spend any time in it - simply drop off your bags and go see Rome. Except for location - just near Termini Station there's nothing I liked in this hotel. Location - near Termini (that's a big plus) but... More

I booked the hotel prepaid for a Euro trip. I had a plan and hoped I had thought through all my options and possibilities during the trip. But you can never plan everything. I had a death in the family and was not going to be able to stay. I was able to make a visit but the cold and... More
