The hotel fully met our requirements - somewhere fairly central for sightseeing. Our bedroom was fairly small but very clean and quite sufficient, with excellent house keeping. Reception and other staff were professional and friendly. The buffet breakfasts (10 euros extra per person) had a wide variety of foods on offer, and were served in a very clean breakfast room. We found the small fridge in our room very useful for cold drinks and could be used for food if one wished. Because our flight was late arriving in Rome we arranged transportation from and to the airport, through the hotel for the 4 of us This was not cheap (129 euros), but it was there when we arrived and promptly got us to the hotel with the minimum of delay. Similarly, when we left, we were taken to the airport, through the Rome evening rush hour traffic in good time for our return flight to UK.

If there is any criticism to be made. then it is that the bedroom was very hot at night, and the heating controls were not easy to understand - however an open balcony door was a solution.

The walls are a little thin and the hotter than comfortable room temp are the only negatives but the rest is great.

Took a triple room and the space is amazingly huge; very functionally design and logically configured; clean & tastefully furnished too. It has very good lighting; bright but with no glare. Plenty of charging points for your phones, PCs cameras etc and spacious work space.

The breakfast is reasonable at 10 euro but keep in mind you get what you paid for; variety & quantity is there but quality is a touch lacking.

Service is fine overall. There's a Middle Eastern looking guy at the counter in the evening who is really helpful with our inquiries. Great service with a smile.

It is located just 5 min to Republica Metro, but be warned, do not lug your luggage to this station from Termini. Much easier to walk straight from Termini.

We stayed here for 4 nights on our trip to Rome. The hotel is in a very convenient location near to the train station and metro stop (republicaa). The Hotel itself was very nice, very modern and clean. The rates were extremely reasonable for a 4 star hotel in Rome. The sauna was nice too. The breakfast was very nice and for 10 euros was worth it. The roof top deck was very nice and the vending machines offer water (0.50 euros), wine and snacks at very reasonable prices. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. I highly recommend staying here.

Me and my partner stayed for 3 day, 2 nights.. The rooms are spacious, really really clean and have everything you need. The smoking areas were private and comfy. Loved it! The bed was big, I love a big bed, the mattress was tough but I like a hard bed but I don't know if thats to everyones liking but for me it was perfect. The vending machines were handy to some extent. They were good for snacks if you get the muchies, but not for real food. The selection of drinks in the vending machines were great and at a good price aswell, pretty handy if you want to take a bottle of wine to your room and chill out. We also bought an umbrella and a toothbrush from the machines. Breakfast in the morning is pretty good, a nice selection of food, all quite sweet food though and I wouldn't say its worth 10euros but its for convenience reasons.
The gym is small but perfect and clean having everything you need, including weights. The sauna is personal :) prefect for a couple on their own. We had some trouble on the second night when we tried to use it, the hotel says its open till midnight but it automatically switched off at around 10.30, and they couldn't seem to get it back on. The 2 men on duty were really incompetent, but we feel bad for them more than anything, I think it was just a language barrier. Anyway, in the end, we settled for free drinks and he filled up each of our glasses with around 250ml of whiskey - can't complain really :) that was a good night!
The location of the hotel is brilliant - you can actually walk around the whole of Rome all day without transport if you fancy it, you see alot more and find things that are not on the tourists maps. And a little pointer - don't take tours from anyone, too expensive and a total con..
I brought my mini laptop and you get free internet in the hotel which was great because it helped us plan our day browsing through Roman websites.
Overall, the hotel was brilliant, loved it, couldn't ask for anything better - the staff are a bit slow but everything else is amazing.. and Rome is amazing!
