“Good value for money.”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

I did read a lot of reviews here, some of which were not encouraging, but I decided to give it a try! The rooms are pristine, and are cleaned daily! The sheets and towels were sparkling white! The room on the hand was quite small.

The staffs were very friendly. I only had an issue with the guy at the bar downstairs. I bought drinks for a bunch of young Japanese guys on my first night at the hotel, he served me a bill of €16, I gave him a €20 note, but he never gave me my balance which was €4. It wasn't a big deal for me, but I found it totally unacceptable, as I didn't ask him to keep the balance!

Another downside was the breakfast. It was all cold food consisting of just bread, ham, cheese, and some mixed fruits in a sauce which appeared processed. They could do with a bit more variety and maybe something hot asides coffee and tea.

Be aware though that there's a 'city tax' of €2 per night per person, which is usually payable on arrival at the hotel. It's apparently not something peculiar to this hotel, but every hotel in the city of Rome (and a few other cities in Italy), so brace yourself for this 'tax'.

I couldn't fault the hotel otherwise, as you get good value for your money.

Room Tip: The higher the room you get, the better! Ask for a room overlooking the road, they are usually the r...

The best thing about this hotel was the staff, they were friendly chatty an very helpful, without them I dnt think I would of enjoyed my holiday.. The rooms are very cheap, but the price reflects that also, the bedroom consists of a bed, fridge and a wardrobe, there is little floor space left afta this.. The bathroom is tiny, sink an toilet, an the showerhead is above the toilet seat, no enclosure so anything in the bathroom is soakin aftawards. The location is bad, 15 min bus ride to the Vatican an another bus from there to Rome centre, the bus route also seems to be the busiest around lol, so don't count on a seat. The hotel did what we needed, but I wouldn't go back

Me and my 2 sisters stayed here because of the price... We didn't care much for what kind of room it was because we planned on doing a lot of touring, as long as it was clean we were happy and it was... Yes the breakfast was simple but you got it for free so why complain... Rome is a city to explore the hotel was just somewhere to sleep and we were happy enough with it... The restaurant across the road was AMAZING anything that came from the kitchen was delicious :) loved it.... And as for transportation the bus is a short walk from the hotel and was very easy to use.... I have a great trip :)))

Thanks to the staff they bring that family atmosphere.i spend 8 days of my winter vacation in Rome, with my 16 y son for first time,but not last i hope.I had medical problem with stuff help i went to the hospital in 3 min time with taxi.Emergency check up was free.Night taxi tax is so expensive.I noticed that tourists were so polite so humble ,you cant see drunk people noisy kids running around or crowded company's.

Room Tip: winter only

A clean and pleasant stay here, good for a long day looking around the city. Downsides were the location, with a 20/25 min walk to the nearest metro stop, which could be a bit daunting at night time in a poorly lit area.
Overall though, good service, room and breakfast at a modest price!

Room Tip: Higher floors (and rooms towards the front of the hotel) have better views, and less traffic noise.

This hotel is excellent value especially compared to hotels in the central tourist area. It is15 minute walk to the Metro which is quick and regular, 5-10 mins Vatican,15 mins everywhere else. The walk would be a problem for anyone with mobility issues as the pavements can be uneven or blocked by cars, but if you are reasonably fit you will be fine. Cab to and from central Rome is 15-20 euros so a reasonable alternative to the Metro if there are 4 of you.
For UK readers I would equate this hotel to a UK Travelodge but with small rooms; very clean, plenty of towels, comfortable beds, adequate breakfast and efficient staff with fluent English. Student groups can make it a bit noisy but I always travel with earplugs as even in a top class hotel you can still get a room next to the boiler or facing a busy street!
We were in Rome for the sights not for the hotel - we left by 10 every morning and stayed out until 10 every evening - we had a wonderful time and the amazing price we paid for the hotel enabled us to spend more on tours, meals etc.

Room Tip: Take earplugs if you are a light sleeper & ask for a room that does not front onto the street.

A decent priced hotel, good for crashing after a long day's walk.
2 min to bus or 15 min walkning to Cornelia metro; never used car/taxi as metro/bus takes you anywhere around the touristic area in a nick of time.
The breakfast could use some diversity, same food for 5 days.
Our room was on the ground floor, small and somehow noisy because of the poor phonic isolation of walls. Clean hotel and room; staff was friendly, with fluent english, unlike many restaurants around.
Overall, considering the price we payed, a good hotel.
