“GOOD ENOUGH FOR THE MONEY PAID”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

VERY very close to the main train station. Certainly an good choice for this type hotel.
Friendly staff, nice breakfast for the money, and a quite and clean place to rest. I WOULD CERTAINLY STAY THERE AGAIN. If one is looking for elegance then look elsewhere.

Room Tip: sMALL Small small elevator. One person with bags will fill it up but at least there is one availabl...

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

Old building and corresponding rooms. All services are to be paid, including the Internet. The hotel is not badly located, but overall overpriced. Obviously, merchants are taking full advantage of the tourist industry derived from the historical events that took place there. Other places, especially in Eastern Europe are better value for money.

This older style hotel is situated across the road from Roma Termini.The rooms are fairly basic but spotlessly clean and the bedding is very comfortable. Breakfast of cereals, yogurt, pastries, rolls, ham & cheese was fresh and well presented. There are numerous restaurants around for meals and a small grocery store nearby. I would be very happy to always stay here.
Desk is manned 24hours and security is good.
Only negative - shower is small and door access is about 15".

In an emergency, stayed there for one night. The only good thing is the location, close to the train and subway station, the Coliseum, but that's it, nothing else is worth. And the guy on the reception had the worst breath ever.

Only thing good about this hotel is the location.The bathroom was dirty eeks.the tiles and shower frames had green fungus.the pillows were really old covered with white covers.cupboard had around 20 hangers in it all different types many of them broken.Why keep such stuff in a hotel room!!!.dust on furniture and curtains.
Breakfast was terrible ,Nothing hot .Not even decent coffee.they even charged us for holding our luggage in the lobby 2euros per luggage piece.Definitely not 3 star..maybe 1 star.

We found the hotel clean, but it didn't really help. The room needed a complete re-furb, very dated and the bed was really small for a double. The location was excellent for transport connections and walking to main attractions. The breakfast was 'continental buffet style and was good.

Room Tip: We were on the top floor and the lift was the slowest I have ever Known, we were at the 'back...
