“It was horrible experience”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2014

It was horrible experience. Moisture in the walls and in the bathroom and terrible smell. I got the feeling to sleep with my clothes on. The area is good though. you can reach everything by foot. Near piazza Barberini and Via Venetto. It's a pity that they haven't invested in the rooms to make them more cozy.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2014

I had a single room which was small and so rudimentary that at first i was a bit shocked. On the other hand i noticed that it had everything that i needed and that even everything that was offered was with a sense of respect. In short: everything that you need is here. Also the family that provides these rooms are very friendly. But no-one can beat this location: walking distance from the train station and a major metro crossroads. Also, the neighborhood is quite authentic.

Booked to stay here for 5 nights was so bad left after 2. This is not a hotel. It was advertised as a hotel but is in fact a room in some old lady's house. The old Italian lady uses every chance to let out her anger on the guests staying in her home. DO NOT STAY HERE.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in August 2013. The rooms are extremely reasonably priced considering their excellent location in the centre of Rome. Naturally, the luxury of the room reflects the price; if you expect 5-star accommodation, this is not the place for you! The bathroom in particular is very basic and I felt the shower was quite cramped. We had a fan though it was a bit noisy.

This said, the rooms are spotlessly clean, the hotel is very secure with 4 locked doors to get through to your room and the owner is a lovely gentleman, happy to point you in the right direction when needed. There is also a fabulous ice cream place across the road! We are a young couple travelling around Italy without a lot of money, and so this suited us absolutely perfectly. Would stay again.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

Last november I was there for one night, I booked double bedroom. The quality of everything was good enough, starting from cleanliness and service.The location is perfect, 5 minutes from Termini Station. The hotel is very easy to find. In my room there wasn't private bathroom, just one to share with others. I got towels, shower gel. We can't use the fridge. The room was very clean because everyday the owner takes care of this. I can't complaint about anything. Of course, I possesed my own keys. It's possible to leave your luggage for a few hours even if you checked out. The value reflects the standard so it's a suitable place for spending the marvellous week in Rome :)

Location is not perfect. It is far from metro station and 10 -15 min by walk to the nearest bus station.
Here is quite noisily: we heard what our neighbors talks about in the nearest room.
However, the rooms and bathroom were clean.
Also, in front of the hotel is really awesome italian gelateria :)
