Both the installations and our room were very comfortable. The highlight of this stay was the amazing staff who were always available to help us with whatever we needed, especially this one fellow named John (or Gian?). The location was also pretty good.

Every one knows that finding a good hotel with reasonable price is not an easy job in Rome central, especially during high season. I have just stayed one night in a single room during July and based on my observations, the price (90 euro for 1 night, including the breakfast and city taxes) totally worth it. The room was small very clean with a bathroom even better than the room. The receptions are polite, friendly and speak English fluently. The breakfast was really great. You may have every thing that normally are only found in 5 star hotels, including omelette and hot potato ... . I can not say it was the best I have ever experienced, but the total summation on cleanness, price, quality, location and quietness get a good mark!. If you have no experience in choosing hotels near Rome central, this could be an option for you. The other options of this hotel are available by its website, so I just emphasize on my own observations. Have a nice stay in Rome!

This B&B is a no frills, good proximity to the train, "if you get a good deal and don't need extras go for it" sort of location. We left early so we did not experience breakfast, but check in and out was a good experience. There are better locations for similar prices nearby. I would even advise to go a bit farther away from the train station unless you have heavy luggage. For us, we had a train in one day and a train out the next day before a cruise so the location was perfect. Don't plug in your own hair dryer - very old building so it won't be able to handle it as we learned from experience! Also found two small bugs in the shower which isn't the end of the world but was not the greatest experience either. Overall, it got the job done but could use improvements.

After long walking from the station, you will find this hotel. the road is really messy, so its very difficult to walk with heavy suitcase. Once you enter the hotel, you will immediately see stairs and reception desk. You can obviously see the receptionist, however he never help you if you suffered heavy suitcases. Especially I was traveling with my mom, but still the receptionist male, never help you. He gave a very easy explanation, and gave us a very old, very dark room. when we open the fridge, it was packed with ice which you can see the room is not used often. I asked to the receptionist to change the room. Fortunately, receptionist was kind lady , and we could change the room. She was the only good point of the hotel. We didn't book this hotel by ourselves, from travel agency. But the hotel star was 4stars, the picture looks very nice from booking website. so we didn't worry about the hotel. It was the last city to stay in Rome for our trip, so I feel very disappointed, and not recommended.
