Stayed here for a total of three nights. The location is very convenient, as it is only a ten-minute schlep from Termini, and it is half a block away from the Vittorio Emmanuele metro stop. The Maikol faces a lovely park, and the square is fairly quiet. The rooms themselves are much more spacious than I expected, and they were comfortable and very clean. They are not particularly stylish, but if you are on a budget, this is a great place to stay. The staff were the best feature of this place. It has a homey, family-run feel and all the staff were extremely accommodating. When we arrived, one of the proprietors wrote our location on a street map and told us how to get to all the major sites, as well as recommending a couple of local restaurants. It was really helpful, as we found it very easy to get lost while walking around Rome. Our bags were brought to the room for us, despite the fact that we were right around the corner from the reception. The staff will ask what time you want your breakfast and bring it to your room very promptly. Breakfast consists of jam, nutella, pastries, grissini, and yogurt, plus tea or coffee and orange juice. It was definitely nice to have breakfast brought to us, and the pastries were fresh and delicious. Free wifi is available, but the signal isn't too good if you're not close to the reception area. The place itself is rather basic, but the staff really go out of their way to make you feel welcome. We liked the Maikol so much that when we were stranded due to the volcano in Iceland, we immediately called them up and asked if we could stay there. They were fully booked, but offered to help us find another hotel (sadly, we did not take their recommendations). But we did stay there a couple of nights later, after staying at a much worse but similarly priced hotel about 10 minutes away. At 90 E a night, the Maikol is a great bargain, without any of the negative aspects of European budget hotels. Just make sure you remember the address- the sign is a little small.
