“It's good for what you pay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2011

its nothing special. it has some nice things like excellent wifi, very clean, the location is great. but on the other hand, the room is the size of a shoebox... seriously. also, my room faced this dingy looking area... i don't know, but it looked shady (it was like the inside of the building? i don't know).

if you're not spending much time in the hotel room, then it is perfect, it's on via firenze which is off via nazionale, you're close to two metro stops and termini, all the shopping you could want, and so much more :)

Room Tip: apparently the hotel rooms in the same building of the pub are better

I loved the location, the breakfast, although is in a different building, kind help us leaving earlier and having more time to visit and enjoy such a beautiful and historical city.


The underground is a couple blocks away and there is some stores at walking distance.

The only inconvenience, if you could say so, is that we check in a few blocks away from the actual building, and with suitcases, it can be a little overwhelming for some people traveling with many items.

If you want a great restaurant suggestion: la taverna dei Monti, Via del Boschetto, 41, 00184 Roma - maybe 6 or 7 blocks away but we had dinner 3 out of 6 days we stayed in Rome. Not fancy, a family restaurant, Great food. Every single plate we ordered was phenomenal.

Very conviniently located near the Republica Metro station, it is an ideal place to stay if you are not planning to spend a lot of time in the rooms. The rooms are decent and rather clean, on the 1st floor (just stairs - no elevator) above a pub, where you can have your meals. Breakfast is served there, too. The music from the pub can get a little disturbing at times. The staff is very friendly but difficult to find because they all work at the pub, as well. Good value for money- just don't expect too much!

I stayed in Room 103 above the pub.
The location was perfect for me, 100 metres from the Republica Metro station.

But this isn't a hotel, it's like a half pub half hotel, so the staff seem to be from the pub.
If you need anything you have to go to the pub and get their attention, in between them serving people at the bar.

The room had no windows, well there was a 2x1 foot window above a locked door leading out to the roof I think.
The room was clean enough, en-suite, TV with plenty of stations ( only found 2 English TV stations), safety deposit box and small chilled mini-bar.

The air conditioning unit in my room didn't seem to work well.
At night, there was a lot of noise from various machinery/air conditioning units/fans etc outside. ( which was behind the hotel on various flat roofs )
I had brought foam earplugs which solved that issue.
Then there were about 4 mosquitoes in my room, and when I turned off the light to sleep they took turns biting me. I have 12 bite marks at the moment.

I'd be worried about the same mosquitoes biting numerous guests and transmitting disease between them. There was the red blood splattered remains of 5 other mosquitoes on the ceiling were other guests had the same problem.

The room was a 5 minute walk from the check-in. They offered no wake-up call. They gave us an alarm that didn't work. The clock in the room was off by an hour. These factors led to our unfortunate late arrival at the airport. Know what you're getting when you stay here.
