Good points: Room was clean, plenty of hot water, hairdyers our double room had a bath (single rooms shower only), there was a fridge in the room, AC (although we didn't use due to weather) free wi-fi in the lobby which worked well, reception staff very friendly with good English. Easy to find in a quiet street close to 3 metro stations and 10 mins walk from the main Termini station (dragging a suitcase!). There is a small late opening mini supermarket a couple of doors away, a very smart wine bar around the corner and a various retaurants very close by. The Colloseum is 15 minutes walk. There was a secluded terrace one floor up which might have been nice to sit in if the weather had been better. The rooms are small but for the price reasonable.
Bad Points; The area is not as nice as say near Piazza Navorno but we chose to be close to the Termini staion as we had a latish arrival and an early departure. The beds were also very uncomfortable. The real reason I haven't rated this hotel higher however is the breakfast which was disappointing both in terms of quality and service. Roll and croissant and an unidentifiable red juice drink only with a basket of sundry cheap biscuits. We had to request milk for our tea. Sometimes the milk was hot sometimes cold randomly. Some biscuit baskets contained small packets of cornflakes but ours didn't so we raided another table. We then had to request a bowl from the inattentive staff so it all felt like hard work. People on another table ordered hot chocolate to drink -we didn't particularly want that but we were only offered tea or coffee so had no idea it was an option and we were certainly never offered a second pot. Again some people on another table had yoghurts but I have no idea whether they made a special arrangement as no-one else seemed to be offered this. Improve breakfast Tirreno and this could be a good choice for the price.
