The best thing about this place is the location, literally right across the street is 6 euro (one-way) bus to the main Rome airport far far away. The second best thing is the price, around 20 euros pp, sometimes even less. Of course you get what you pay for. Booked a one-night triple room 10 days apart, the first one... More

The man on recpetion is rude by not even acknowledging you have arrived...i stood ther 5 minutes staring at him...a classis power... More

We stayed in this hotel for 5 nights in room no.11. It is in first floor with private bathroom and window facing the wall. Very dark, but on the other side - no noise from the street. But there were some really unpleasant noises from hotel at night - yelling, door slamming, etc. And the bed is very uncomfortable.This room... More

My family and I stayed in this hotel in 2013 for eight nights. Very reasonably priced and it is literally 5 steps away from the Termini. The breakfast is very good and included in your price, WiFi is available, even though you do have to pay for it. The hotel staff are very friendly and very helpful. The red citysightseeing... More

There was a frige in the room, comfortable bed, every day stuff changed covers, The hotel stuff was the best - very kind, always smiling people, with a... More

The room was ok but the beds were terrible. There was a hump in the middle of the mattress and I felt like I was going to roll off onto the floor so I had to sleep on the hump. It was pretty miserable. The shower was annoying because it was a hand-held shower head, which I usually prefer, but... More

Yes we understand that Rome hotels are expensive and yes we know that one needs to pay significantly to get anything descent. Nevertheless, this hotel should be considered only as a last resort. It is expensive, old and rusty in all attributes, breakfast poor (to be honest-as most hotels of this category are). Credit to the night reception person who... More

Let me start by saying that we ended up at this hotel after being unable to find anything else at a reasonable price. Unfortunately there were only bedrooms with shared bathrooms available. The shower was just gross. Toilet was ok. The worst thing was the smell of cigarettes in the room. So overwhelming it was difficult to stay in the... More

Rooms are good and clean. Out of rooms all interior of the hotel is horror. The elevator is from the previous century, I take the steers all the time. The stuff is not friendly and helpful at all. I will never stay in this hotel ever. This hotel make my stay in Rome less pleasant.
