Reviewed October 7, 2011

The location was very convenient to go to Termini (main station in Rome). It is in the heart of the city and access to all major tourist locations. The staff was friendly. some spoke english well. Wi-Fi works well. The shower stall was extremely small. The mattress felt different from usual.

Room Tip: the shower stall and the bathroom is not suitable for overweight people.

Simple hotel, but clean and friendly staff. Room was basic but large with decent shower. Location was excellent, right next to termini station where all trains, buses, metros and airport transfers go from. Staff very helpful regarding places to eat and buses to get there.

Good location 5 minutes away from Termini, food available to buy at Spar and a handful of nice inexpensive restaurants and bars around.
Stayed with 3 other people and only had 1 key for all, you can imagine how inconvenient it was when we split up. Only 1 elevator, fit 3 people, so had to wait ages to go up or down.
Staff was very rude: when a couple of friends staying at another hotel visited us for a couple of minutes, they got kicked out; staff explained in bad English something about "police regulations" although I've never experienced anything like this at other hotels.
Checked "yes" on "Free High Speed Internet", but 1)definitely not high speed, 2)wifi only works downstairs in a small Internet cafe, not enough spare sockets for laptops.
Rooms small but in good condition. No closet: had to keep all clothes in suitcases.
Acceptable for student trips with friends.

We booked this hotel 2 days prior our arrival in Rome. The price was around 100 euro so our expectations were not unrealistic. That being said, the hotel is situated in a convenient central location, so we could take long walks around the major points of interest and not have to worry about taking a taxi etc.

The quadruple room we had was clean but felt like it was furnished 20 years ago. Then again we only used it to have a good night's sleep after a tiring sight-seeing session. Don't come here for a romantic experience but rather a good value for money considering how expensive Rome can be, esp. if you are a large family like us. If single, look elsewhere, but for the 5 of us it made a lot of sense to stay here.

The so so reviews nearly turned us off but I am so glad we kept the reservation. 4 of us stayed here for 3 nights in total. 2 days initially en route to Praiano and then one last night before we left Rome.
Everything was very nice, what you would expect from a 3 star. Strong AC which was very helpful as we are in a heat wave. Also clean.
A s aplus the porter kept our luggage for us for free when we were in Praiano, saved us a trip lugging it to the left luggage in Termini
Would stay again

We only stayed for one night, but the hotel was good value, quiet, clean and comfortable. It does exactly what it should for the price and location (5 mins to Termini), plus has free WiFi and breakfast included. I would recommend to anyone who is more concerned with budget and location, than a fancy hotel.
