“Surprisingly good, cheap, clean”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

They say it is very close to the train station, but it is not so true. You have to take the tram and it is a 20 minute ride. Walking would take more than 40 minutes, so dont try it :). But 2 different trams, 5 and 14 go very often which makes it accessible enough. The room was clean and it was cleaned every day. Fortunately we could use a good wifi, the staff was very nice always, especially Aleksandar. Nex time in Rome, I will be back here.

They say it is very close to the train station, but it is not true. You have to take the tram and it is a 20 minute ride. Walking would take more than 40 minutes. But 2 different trams go very often which makes it accessible enough.
When we arrived we were very disappointed with the location, but it was sort of cheap (staying in Rome is brutally expensive). The location doesnt look safe at all, but during 3 or 4 days we didnt have a problem at all. It is not actually a hotel, they are located in the 6th and 7th floor of an apartment / office building in corner. No sign for the name, just some kind of "Hotel" sign which is not very visible.

The room was ok, not very clean, but some how what I was expecting by the location and the "cheap" price. The shower was super dirty.

My main complain was the guys from the service desk during the afternoon, they were acting friendly but it was obvious that they didnt care that much. I asked them fro the password of their Wifi, and it took me 30 minutes to get that done. The lady in the morning was quite friendly.

If this is just only last minute option, it is a good choice. If you can book in advance in some other place closer and for the same amount, I would rather look for something else.

Dear Client,

Thank you for comment! Could you be so kind to explain us a very curious fact: how can you say that the hotel is “horrible” if you're not even in? It's like saying that your home is dirty and horrible without seeing it!
We are sorry for your no-show and hope you'll be more attentive with your choices.
Sincerely,
Amico Hotel

I've read some of the reviews before and most of them are correct about this place.
Location: we couldn't find this place easy, because it's situated in a living house, which looks awful. The only sign was 'Hotel' on the side of the building and nothing more. It might sound stupid, but at least you might expect some name alongside with the word hotel.
The area looked not very pleasant, but good thing was that there was a Pigneto street very close, where the vibe was similar to London's Bricklane!
From an inside: it looks very dirty, because it's based in residential building. Hotel doesn't look very clean neither, but that's what you can expect for that price.
Rooms were quite tidy, but no one has sweeped the floor under the bed entire time of stay. Bathroom and toilets were also not very clean. I could even see some insect crawling on the shower cabin - I'm glad my girlfriend didn't see it.
Service: service was OK, after showing our disappointment they let us choose from some rooms, which was very good. However we had to ask three times to reduce the volume of TV in the reception, because we could hear it even with the earplugs and couldn't fall asleep!
Bed sheets were changed occasionally. One day the room service tried to get into our room when we were not ready! And the sign was there, telling clearly 'DO NOT DISTURB!' Girlfriend tried to explain them, but poor communication of room service lade skills made mad, because she couldn't get in!
Receptionists were nice, but that's it.

Overall, if you have some nerve and not afraid of crawling things, living in not very pleasant location and being disturbed of noise, you can go for this cheapo. But if you can afford more expensive place, spend more and avoid this place!

I booked the hotel because other hotels were not available at this price 49 euro per night for two of us. From Roma Termini central station, tram 5 and 14 have good frequency. The tram stops right in front of the hotel. However, please talk to hotel staff to get directions. (That is what I did.) The hotel is on the 7th floor. The lift is very small - only for two people. No space for baby wagen. We reached early in the morning. The room was not ready, but they allwed us to leave our bag with them. Our room was on the 6th floor. But we always have to enter the 7th floor and then walk all the way to other side and take the steps down to 6th floor. There is a tram depo nearby so there will be some sound throught the night. Some staff is not good in English. But John is good. He also gave good information on some other questions about Rome. The room size was okay for what you pay. But the shower was leaking. The bathroom door was not closing properly. The whole area smells of cigarette smoke. If these things could be fixed and price reduced further, this hotel is a good bait if you want to save your euro.
