“Fantastic central location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2014

We ended up staying at this property as our original hotel had a sewerage leak. On arrival the receptionist was quick and efficient and offered us a room at the same price for our original hotel which we thought was extremely kind of them! The hotel is walking distance to every sight you want to see (apart from the vatican which can be reached easily by the metro). The rooms were large and clean and there was a lovely street view from the windows. If you are not strong walkers then pick up a day pass for the metro which is 6€ and gives you unlimited 24 hours access to every metro station in Rome.

Good choice for the round city buses, but a little out of the way for most other tourist sites. The staff polite and friendly, the rooms clean, beds comfortable, breakfasts a bit sparse. Good value for budget break.

The hotel was good with nice rooms with terrace with view on the rear of the building. I really appreciated the size of the bed (I stayed in a twin room) which was comfortable, the breakfast with fresh croissants, jogurt, fruit juice and hot drink and the location. It's very easy to move through Rome from this hotel! I've never used the metro to move except during the night when we wanted to come back. All beautiful sites to visit are really close!
