When we sent an email about our arrival the owner has responded, that they don't know about our reservation so we would get another room - the one w/o bathroom included. We arrived with 1hour delay because of weather, luckily the owners have been waiting for us and good was that... More

My girlfriend and I stayed in Sam's Rooms in October 2012, as she loves to come to Rome for shopping. The Metro is two stops from Stazione Termini (Railway Station and arrival of Airport-transports) and just 150 meters from Sam's. Its an old building with a huge inner court with palm trees. Must have been a palace once. There is... More

Stayed for 3 nights. For what we paid for the room we were happy. I think there are 4 rooms. We had a very clean quad room which was Sam 2. The windows faced into the interior courtyard so no noise. We had AC, a small refrigerator, safe, and a private bathroom, but the tub had no shower curtain so... More
