Initially a little hard to find, and also requires you to walk through a slightly 'dodgy' neighbourhood. However, the owner was helpful when we arrived. The room was very clean, well ventilated and the bathroom was clean (however an empty toilet roll and full rubbish bin was found on arrival). The kitchen is small but you can cook in there. The breakfast is not very good, with a very small juice, some crackers and jam. We made our own in the end. Very close to train station and a short walk into the center of the city. The surrounding area however (as mentioned above) is a little intimating and wouldn't walk around at night alone. Overall a good stay and fairly priced accommodation. Would recommend.

Room was clean,mattress was badly in need of changing as had seen better days,badly sagging and dipped,very sqeaky.bathroom was clean but shower tray plughole kept blocking causing it to overflow over bathroom floor.Modern tv in room but all italian speaking.
Breakfast was a joke you have to go to bar next door with a ticket.Breakfast consists of one cup of coffee and one croissant/cake with no refills.Overall very disappointed with this hotel so can't recommend to anyone i would find another hotel in the room

Room Tip: find another hotel in the area

We waited until the last minute to book our hotel - read booked the same day we checked in - so, we ended up with B&B Alex. A very reasonable hotel, but quite pricey for what it is. Seems to be an old apartment, converted to a hotel.

My one major complaint was the mattress - which was awful. VERY squeaky and soft - but our days were so long and exhausting that I slept just fine, regardless. Lighter sleepers might not have the same luck. Also, no wifi. I would not book this place again unless their price was drastically reduced.

The location was very good, pretty much ideal for sight-seeing in Rome. It's almost right next to the main train station , which gives you access to both metro lines allowing for easy transportation to the majority of Rome's famous sights. Although there is a lot of bad press about the area around the station, we did not find this to be the case, and the plethora of cheap and cheerful restaurants in the nearby area meant eating out at night was simple and convenient. There is a small kitchen in the hotel that provides you with all the basic amenities, and there is a Spar next to the train station where you can buy food pretty cheaply. The room itself was actually a family room, which meant there was plenty of space for the two of us. The bed was comfortable, although the sheets were not changed on a daily basis. It isn't really worth paying for breakfast as there is only a very limited selection of food and drink available; however, this is fairly typical of Italian breakfasts. The reception staff were friendly and helpful, however the fact that reception is not manned 24/7 did prove to be a problem when checking in and out - be sure to tell them exactly what time you plan to arrive as otherwise they may not actually be there!
