My husband and I found a deal on Groupon with this hotel and decided to spend three days in Rome. the hotel has a 3 star rating so we weren't holding our breath, especially after reading reviews that the staff were a bit rude. But when we got there, the staff were very polite and accommodating, the room was quick big, the bathroom was very nice, and the hotel is located in a quiet part of Rome, not too close to the center, just far out enough to be quiet and peaceful but close enough to public transportation and the tourist sites.
the room had a small television with many cable channels, a comfortable bed. my husband and i observe kosher strictly so when we brought our own food for dinner, the staff had no problem heating it up for us. not every place is willing to do this.
if i have to be very spoiled and picky my main problems were as follows (and if this is the worst i found, that makes this a really great hotel):
1. internet: the reception gives you a 12 hr. username and id (or as many as you need for the duration of your stay) but the internet signal in the room is not very strong. not strong enough to download a video online or to video-skype.
2. the shower: it was so small i couldn't close the doors or i wouldn't have had room to move around in it.
3. this last one is really looking for a bad needle in a haystack of really good: the sheets and towels had some holes in the them, and the fitted sheet on the bed wasn't fitted, so it pulled off a bit easily. but everything was clean.
to sum up: i would highly recommend this hotel for anyone who wants a very pleasant stay in rome but not be too close to the busy center!
