We were a little worried after reading all the reviews but were quite surprised as it was nothing like what we had read about! The only downfall was there was no elevator so our legs had a bit of a work out. The staff carried my bags up for me which was really helpful. The room was really large, clean... More

It is also rated a 3 star hotel. We do not understand how could get this rating..It will just be a 1... More

Excellent location, near Dome. Sleep was good but maybe we were tired from all he sightseeing. Very polite and helpful staff, answering all our questions. I definitely recommended... More

No elevators whatsoever, if you have a heavy luggage,be ready to climb stairs. breakfast is subpar compare to other hotels I've stayed in Italy in same price range. We stayed their 2 days, but our room was not cleaned on 2nd day. Also the noise at night is LOUD! since you hear all the drunkards walking on main streets. Now... More

The hotel is very good. It's within walking distance from the main train station and also the city main landmarks. Very clean. Good breakfast. good hot shower, big room. Internet sucks and it's not free. I'd stay there again.

The carpet and bed spread stained. The bathroom was dirty, the room smelled of sewage. No elevator and no help getting suitcases up and down stairs. Could not bring myself to even try breakfast. Stayed one night to be woken up by a load noise made by sewage removal truck.

After booking this as a secret hotel we dreaded our arrival after reading reviews but we were pleasantly surprised. The staff at the reception were very friendly and approachable. Our room was on the top floor and there are a lot of stairs to walk up but it was fine. When we walked into our room we had no complaints.... More
