This is a very reasonably priced hotel in an expensive city. That being said, I'd probably spend more for a little bit nicer hotel. The location is fantastic. We were able to walk to all major locations. The rooms were quite small and the bathrooms were tiny. I mean this was probably the smallest shower I've ever been in. AC was not on when we were there in May, so we had to open the windows at night, making it a bit noisy. It is a nice hotel for those on a budget.

Clean, small rooms, really wonderful, central location...walking distance from many sites.... sweet and romantic roof patio on both the 4th and 5th floor. Wifi was inconsistent but they also provide a lobby computer for your use. Really great breakfast included! They were renovating and so we could not use the elevator during our stay which gave us lots of exercise walking up to the 3rd floor. Also, during 6 days there, we never once could get a nice warm shower... the water was always lukewarm to cool, at every time of day !! It was nice to enjoy hearing the neighborhood church bells. But, the taxi that they ordered for us took us to a wrong location !! (I thought hotel managers might know a more reliable taxi driver ! ).

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the street on the 4th floor.

This is a nice little hotel in Rome downtown. Rooms are pretty small and simple. The rooms are located in two different buildings. Breakfast is very nice. Not too pricey for Rome. People are nice. A lot of restaurants in the area

Room Tip: The rooms in the depandance are bigger

This hotel is conveniently located in Campo di Fiori along a quiet street close to the farmer's market. It has clean quiet rooms, a cozy lobby, and a scenic rooftop garden as well as an excellent complimentary breakfast. The multilingual staff are helpful. The hotel offers free Wi Fi and a computer for free use for guests. All this for an extremely moderate price!

The hotel is quite nice, but not very large. Rooms are not large and the elevator is tiny - it can take one person with a couple of suitcases or two persons who don't mind close encounters. The street outside is not large either but narrow and winding, with cars and people and scooters and restaurant tables sharing the public space. Yes, we are in Rome.
The location is simply perfect, midway between Piazza Campo de' Fiori and Largo di Torre Argentina. The hotel has a roof garden with a good view over the surrounding area, perfect for a drink before you go out in the evening.

Convenient, reasonably priced for location. Taxi back to hotel from the Vatican museum cost €20. Easy access to trains. Walking distance to major sights including Vatican, Spanish steps, Trevi fountain, Roman Forum, Parthenon etc. I'm overweight and unfit, just so you know this really does mean easy walking.
