Reviewed April 1, 2013

The hotel was booked before we even saw this comments about it but I must say I felt relieved when I arrived there.
The walls and everything were impeccable and we never had any kind of troubles with lights, dirty things and with anything in the bathroom.

Everyday there were new towels and new shampoos if we used what they left there before.
The only con in the bathroom was that the shower had no curtain which makes the water go everywhere.

The bed was very clean and everything went smoothly. No trouble with noises at night and the bed was comfortable and good (and we stayed four nights).

The only "con" that we saw was the breakfast. It's kinda poor but if you don't usually eat much it's okay, if not maybe you should go to a market near by and buy something that won't cost much. Anyway, the breakfast is included so you can always have coffee or milk and even a little sweet croissant.

The staff they don't always understand english at first but if you have a little patience I'm sure everything will be ok. We talked in english and when there was a problem it's just a matter of talking slower. They are very helpful and we asked for a private car to get us to the airport in the middle of the night and there was no problem with it. The staff arranged everything (they even tell you the price in advance) and the car was at the hotel door at the time we asked.

The lift is normal. People complained before about it but we never had problems with it and we used it for the whole stay. It's small but it's normal if we think about the kind of building where the hotel is.


Around the hotel, during the day you can easily walk with no problem but at night is always "weird". We always arrived at the hotel around 5pm maximum because it was getting darker and only left during night to have dinner.
About that I would say to go to one of the restaurants of the street, the first one when you leave the hotel and turn to right. The food is very good, affordable and plus, we never got a check with the "mandatory tipping" that some restaurants from Rome include.

This hotel is great because it's near Termini Station and you always have the subway to go anywhere and to the Colosseum you can even walk if it's good weather :)


If what you want is to walk around Rome and have some place nice to stay at night and that it's not very expensive I would say this is a good choice. I would stay from 9pm until early next morning and had no complaints about whatsoever...

Stayed at this hotel at room 238; We chose this hotel because of its location-near to the Roma termini. We were fooled by the elegant reception and dining hall pictures as posted on their website, but as we entered our room-Its really horrible.Just like entering a century old closet with dusty carpet. we also encountered a power interruptions during our stay which forced us to left the hotel for few hours. Non-english speaking hotel front desk staff. Not so friendly for travelers who need to leave the hotel early because they offer a late breakfast at 8 am (compare to most hotels in Rome and Paris which offers breakfast at 6am).

The welcome was terrible, when we got to the stairs to go up to the room, all we could smell was paint, you could see ladders and tools everywhere. The Walls were horrendous all poorly decorated and the lift was tiny and we got lost trying to find the room - badly signposted. The room was ridiculous - wires hanging out of plug sockets, the front of the fire alarm had been removed was so unsafe. The fridge absolutely useless/leaking all over floor. Shower all rusting and no bath mat so unsafe. We couldn't wait each morning to get out of the hotel (if I can call it that) we are disappointed. No heating, the window didn't even lock properly. That was such a low point of our city break.:(

I booked the hotel using a price comparison site and should have expected more for a double room that was only costing £81 including breakfast. I was more concerned with finding a hotel within walking distance of Rome Termini station as we had to catch a train the following day.

We checked in after midnight because of a flight delay and the night porter was unable to supply extra pillows as there were none in the wardrobe. The room was small, quiet and clean and acceptable for just one night. However the bathroom was completely unacceptable. The panel for the toilet flush was not on the wall, but on the floor, leaving us to fathom out how to use the exposed levers. The shower was a supposedly modern one with several water jets. None of them worked and there wasn't even a hook for the shower attachment so we had to have hand showers. There was no proper closure on the shower cubicle, just a manky curtain half-hanging off its hooks. To top it all there was a big match of black mould on the wall above the shower.

As if that wasn't enough there was no bread (or yogurt) available when we emerged for breakfast before 9.30. The argument was that the baker hadn't delivered sufficient and when somebody was finally despatched to buy some more (after several complaints from us and other multi-national visitors) she returned empty handed, claiming that the bread was all sold out. They then managed to find some factory made, individually wrapped croissants before somebody finally appeared with some bread around 10am.

When we complained about the state of the room we were told that the hotel was an old one, as are many in that district, and it was being renovated. The renovations hadn't yet reached our floor.

I know choosing hotels can be a lottery without personal recommendations, but please don't choose this one.

I don't want to give the place one star.... Bed Bugs, Small Brown crawly things, we stayed less than two hours. Had to go to the drugs store and buy both body and clothing spray. The manager looked at us like we had two heads when we told him about the bugs. This was also our second room as the first on upon flushing the toilet water ran all over the floor.

We stayed at this hotel for four nights and had booked it through Easyjet in conjunction with booking our flights to Rome. We have used Easyjet linked hotels in the past and been satisfied - not expecting too much for the price (i.e. you get what you pay for). However, this hotel was a great disappointment. Yes, our room was quiet and we didn't mind it overlooking an apartment block at the back. What we were concerned about was the wiring hanging out of the wall by the TV (which didn't work anyway), the lights with no bulbs in and the general smell of damp and grime. The beds were worn and saggy and there were obvious damp stains on the ceilings. The only public room i.e. the dining room, was tiny and couldn't cope with the number of guests at breakfast so there was normally a guest or two waiting at the entrance for you to get a move on! Breakfast itself was pitiful and if certain items ran out they were not replaced. If guests pointed this out they were tutted at and generally ignored by staff.
I know people make allowances for hotels in city centres being rushed but there is no excuse for a hotel like this to continue to be so shoddy. Easyjet should withdraw this hotel from their list.
