If being a three minute walk from the Coloseum is what your looking for this is the place you want. In all other aspects this may well be the poorest value I have experienced in over 50 years of travel accomodation ranging from dorm beds to five star hotels on all continents. Dogs barking in the court yard that management ignores...hallways used to store bikes, baby strollers and other large objects...smallest shower stall I have ever seen...surly breakfast waiter when trying to get a second cup of coffee. Housekeeping doesn't stock toilet paper. Yes Europe is an expensive travel venue but by no stretch of the imagination is this a three star lodging or worth $200/night.

WORST SERVICE! I was yelled at for saying that the wifi didn't work and he insulted my mother and I personally - yes, they do treat you as though you are invading their personal space. Not for professionals or those who expect service. Not recommended for people who don't like to pay 290 euro/night for personal insults!

Lovely hotel, owner was always there and extremely friendly and helpful. There were mosaics on all the floors, the rooms are quite spacy, but the bathrooms are very, very small. Breakfast (included) was very nice, but there's only one option, and no eggs for example.

Only stayed 2 nights, and it cost a small fortune but it was a great little old place...in walking distance to the Colosseum. Beautiful rooms and building....very fancy.

The location of this hotel is excellent - just a minute walk to the coliseum. About 5-8 min. walk to Metro. The rooms and bathrooms are quite small, but are furnished very nicely and are very clean and have great decor. There is wifi, but it works only in the lobby. There is no lift, so rooms on the first floor are desirable! Great breakfast in the morning - yummy croissants, bread, yogurt.

Room Tip: Try to get a 1st floor room.

Hotel is wonderfully decorated and clean. Roberto the Manager was extremely helpful and accommodating. We also stayed on the top floor with private terrace jacuzzi room and shower. Room service offered. No lifts. Great location, within walking distance to Colosseum, forum and historical sites. There are lots of great restaurants, all within walking distance. A great experience for our first trip to Rome, one day we hope to return and stay here again. Great coffees from the intimate relaxing bar area. Easy to catch a taxi, White cabs rank a short distance away and supermarket. Many thanks to Roberto and staff for making our stay enjoyable.

Room Tip: Top floor suite jacuzzi in rooms, shower terrace

A great 3 star experience. Meaning rooms were clean but small. Staff was courteous but mostly left you alone. Good location within walking distance to coliseum, forum, and ancient downtown (e.g., pantheon). Good choice for somebody that doesn't need a lot of help/recommendations for things to do from staff but wants a good location for cheap-er price.

Wifi was great - FaceTime, skype and Netflix worked perfectly.
