“Great Bargain and Convenient”
Reviewed November 24, 2013

This property is situated very close to Termini train station...about two blocks. It's clean and convenient to the metro. The staff is extremely helpful...all speak English. The breakfast is hearty and plentiful and the staff has gone out of their way to make sure our stay is good....especially Andrea. They have made excellent dinner reservations at neighborhood restaurants within walking distance and have been helpful with directions and suggestions.

Room Tip: Stay on upper floor. Our room had a small balcony....room 504...appears to be the only one on the fl...

Good location, near termini and bus station. clean rooms and bathroom. No tea / coffee making facilities in room. Breakfast choice could have been better, mostly cold meats and fruit, but you have to find your own table, cutlery make tea and find toaster , not a good start to our mornings.
First morning my wife tried the hairdryer in the bathroom and it fused on start up and caused a slight burn to her hand, reported to male reception person and he said he would get it replaced, he did but did not offer any assistance for the burn, to be quite brutal he was not interested and was quite indifferent and not at all helpful at any time. Enjoyed our stay in Rome despite the attitude of the front of house staff. Doubt if we would go back to the Augusta.

We spent 3 nights before leaving for a cruise. The hotel was well located and walkable to mant of the sites in Ancient Rome. It was also only 2 blocks from the train station and bus terminals. My only complaint was when we asked about a night tour they only provided a brochure that was very costly. When we walked up to the transportation center we were able to purchase 48 hours of riding the on/off red open bus line for only 18 E - a great bargain!

This was the first stop on our Italian adventure and I have to say one of my favorite hotels on our trip. First impression: emmaculately clean rooms which is SO important to me. The rooms are tiny, pretty much just a bed and four walls, however it was spotless.

The front desk was extremely amicable and they spoke English fluently as well which was a huge help. This hotel is located only a block a way from the Termini train station which was extremely helpful because we were able to easily travel throughout rome via subway.

It is in an extremely safe area, as there are tourists and locals walking about even at night.

The only complaint I would have was the breakfast, although a large selection, nothing that I really "loved." Also, the bathroom flooded everytime you took a shower because there was not a full door on the shower. When we first arrived there was a screaming baby in the room next door to us but we called and they easily moved our room with no problem.

About a 10 minute walk from here was our favorite restaurant that we ate at during out entire trip, called Veccia Rome.

Overall, I would absolutely recommend staying here especially if you are seeing Rome on our own aka via subway or bus. Also, if you need access to the eurorail as well.

Difficult to write this review because our experience was different from most of the reviews. I picked this hotel because of the reviews. The positive things are: the staff were great, very helpful and friendly; the location is great, walking distance to the train station and most of the fantastic sights; our room was very clean and of a good size as it was a triple, the shower worked brilliantly and the breakfast was decent (though coffee not great as often in hotels), but we really didn't like the decor. And for us decor is important. Although a beautiful building on the outside, the interior is charmless and has had the character stripped out of it. Our room had greenish-golden material on the walls and huge, dark rust-coloured drapes. The floors are tiled which makes everything feel cold and noise echoes down the corridors. It's hard to explain, but it looks wrong, wherever there was wood it was reddish brown and looked stained rather than natural. Despite having huge windows our room had no view as it looked onto a well and the fire escape which was a bit depressing. The shower-room was small, but worked as a space. We stayed 3 nights and neither of us could have stayed another night as the bed was so hard. The staff kindly put a duvet under our sheet when I reported this problem, but it was still an issue. Maybe it's just us, but it was not for us. We paid €225 per night for a triple including breakfast.

Room Tip: Beware the well. It's ugly.

This 5 night visit was my birthday present. Hotel is very clean, staff were helpful & friendly, check in/out was quick. Our room was on fourth floor with balcony, very quiet & reasonable size, bed comfortable & air conditioning unit was very quiet. Hotel is down a side street but easy to find and about 3 minutes walk from bus terminus, metro & main railway station. Hotel is within walking distance of all main attractions except Vatican City which is 3 stops on metro. Vatican City is amazing and well worth paying a the extra to go in with a guide. I suggest walking everywhere else as there is so much to see. We took a train to Pompei on our last full day which was just such an amazing & interesting place to visit - would highly recommend a visit. Rome is a beautiful, interesting city and had a great stay

Booked our trip through travel republic and stayed for 4 nights (29th October - 2nd Nov). Once arrived at Fiumicino airport, had a minibus take us directly to the hotel for about €30 altogether. The hotel is down a side street so easy to miss, but once known your bearings you'll find where it is. Check-in was quick and easy, was able to check into our room for 12pm when the check-in time is 2pm.

Our room was on the first floor and had the view of the street hotel entrance, no loud noises, very clean and good sized room. Had a safe in the room, tv with bbc world news and mtv music - only English channels - a mini bar and a hairdryer in the bathroom. Breakfast was at 7am til 10am every morning and it was ok, with fruit, coffee machines, juices, breads, meats, cereals, yoghurts, eggs, bacon, sausages, croissants. Best to get there a bit early as you'll be waiting for a table.

The location of this hotel was great, right up the road from the termini station so can easily get here to and from airport. Close to the subway lines aswell, as can reach all the main places you'd want to see. But best to walk everywhere also as get to see everything. The staff at reception give you a map which comes in handy. We brought the Roma Pass at the airport and on our second day used it for the colosseum, the palatine hill and the roman forum as those places count as one ticket. Can also use this for metro/subways. Very good for jumping the long queue at the colossuem. Didn't use the buses and only used the subway once to get to the Vatican, as walked everywhere else. Attempted the subway again on our last day to get to the villa Borghese but was so overcrowded, decided to walk.

Plenty of really good restaurants around the hotel, even though we did ask the reception desk for any recommendations when we got to it and realised it was quite a bit expensive and empty we looked down the street and come across one called 'Elettra ristorante' and had lasagnes. Very good and good priced, came back to this one on our last night. There's also 'Gran caffe del passeggero' and 'ristorante il condor' - very good spaghetti Bolognese. Not many restaurants did this but just spaghetti with tomatoes.

With the Vatican, we didn't book our tickets online before we went as we just walked to it and noticed the huge queue around the walls which is a min of two hours waiting time, so we had a very good guide with lots of information and had headsets and earphones which cost us €82 and I think it was worth it.
Other things to be aware of are people trying to sell things on streets and while your eating when sitting outside the restaurant such as souvenirs, squeaky toys and men with tons of scarfs over their arms waving them at you to buy one. But just no thank you will do and carry on. Spanish steps - there are men with bunches of roses and I fell for this when it happened so quick, there was three long roses in my hand and then the man talks to you asking where you're from and then he puts his hand out asking for money. Once you give him a coin or two as they will not go because you had taken them, he asks for more. They also try this by coming up asking where you're from, asking if you like football/rugby and start putting string on your finger and ask for money - don't fall for it. Also the traffic and the way they drive, if its zebra crossings its meant to be give way but cars don't stop so either run or force your way across as then the cars will stop and the lights don't stay green for very long either so it doesn't give you very long to cross the roads.

Overall, great stay and probably would stay again, good sized room and bathroom, large comfortable bed after a long day of walking, my only problem would be the Wi-Fi as it didn't work at all to say we were on the first floor and its free but no connection. Leaving the hotel checking-out the tourist tax was €3 per person per night. Confusing when trying to buy tickets for the Leonardo express back to the airport as it didn't say where to buy them from in the termini - one of the shops for €14 each.
