This hotel is perfect for a short stay in Rome if all you want is a place to rest your head after a day of exploring this breathtaking city.
It's basic and was fairly small but we only stayed for 3 nights and didn't have a lot of luggage, so no reason to complain. A little tv, comfy and clean double bed, small ensuite with a shower.
All of the staff were friendly and helpful.
We were greeted by a really nice young man on arrival, he presented a paper map and highlighted the best routes around the city. He recommended a few local restaurants and some of the most beautiful back streets to visit whilst travelling from monument to tourist attraction. Unfortunately we didn't see him again to thank him, so if he's reading this then - thank you for all of your help!!
You are right in the centre and just a short walk from the Spanish steps and the trevi fountain (around 15-20 mins). It's about a 40 min walk to the colosseum- but there's lots to see on the way so may take longer. We took the underground to the Vatican and walked back, which is recommended so that you are full of energy to explore the galleries when you arrive at the Vatican.
We made the mistake of paying around €35 each for a guided tour of the Vatican. The tour was sold to us on the basis that we'd skip the queue- unless you are visiting in peak season you do not need to do this. We were overcharged massively and wasted time on this tour.
If you are staying in the Flavi Hotel and being dropped of by your transfer at the central train station note that the hotel is a VERY short walk from the station- print off a map before hand.
We paid €3 for a bus which was only one stop, and ended up walking further than if we'd just walked from the station! (note a taxi driver tried to charge us €20 for a 8 minute walk from the station to the hotel!!!)
