“bathroom not clean”
Reviewed March 14, 2010

The location of the pension is just great. It is near to the station and other places important. the room was ok, not to small and the receptionist was very nice and helpful. Breakfast simple put ok. The only thing which we could not see over was the bathroom. Not clean at all!!! really needs a great clean there... otherwise just fine .

I have travelled extensively within europe and stayed at many hotels and I have to say this has to be at the bottom of my list. It took a while to find the hotel as there was no sign outside to indicate that you are in the right place. On entering the building we had to climb up three flights of stairs.The lift could only take one person plus one bag. I arrived at what I thought might be the right address and knocked on the door... no one answered we were a bit early but there was no one to greet us after a 20 minute wait someone eventually turned up to let us in and commented that we were early. great start.
On finally entering we were directed to the breakfast bar which doubled as the hotel reception and although the lady was relatively friendly it felt very uncomfortable..(They have made the picture to look like a proper reception but IT IS NOT).
Oh now for the rooms with a private bathrooms. ha what a joke.. The bathroom was actually across the hall way which we had to lock when not in use for safety reasons, The fan didn't work properly in the bedroom and the floor was filthy. My daughter was near to tears, oh and it smelt awfull too. The beds were quite comfy which was about the only plus. It rained on our small balcony the next day but this was from the overflow pipes from the building above. nice.
Breakfast was a stale bread roll and a cup of tea of coffee but no milk was provided.
please unless you love slumming it dont go here. It really is just some rooms in an apartment block and definately not a hotel.

Booked directly from the website. Great communication with the staff from the very beginning. Is very close from Termini Station. Andrea was very nice and warm towards us and gave us a map with great advices about places to eat. The room had two big double beds, a balcony, a fan and tv. A hot water dispenser is just outside the door, fridge is shared with the other guests. Our bathroom was across the room, but it was private, with a key that we were allowed to take with us. Would come back again if I'm in Rome.

Don't be put off by first impressions. This little place was clean, friendly, cheap and well located.

We were greeted by a man called Andrea who spoke good English, immediately sat us down and went over a map of Rome with us, explained the transport system and recommended places to eat (although we were off season and they were all closed!!). He lived there and said we could knock his door any time.

The rooms were small but adequate for a cheap hotel. Bathroom was clean and relatively spacious.

2 mins walk from the Termini station, where most of coach transfers from ciampino airport drop off and has a tube and bus station, 5 mins from bars, 10mins from shopping, and within walking distance of all the sights - although sometimes a long walk - the Vatican prob about 40 mins, so catch a bus...

However, I must concede it is a funny set up. It seems it is an flat in a large building that has been converted into a 5 or 6 bedroom B&B, it feels a little like student digs when you turn up. Our first reaction was to find somewhere else to stay as it didnt appear to be legit, but we're glad we stayed - we didnt have any problems when staying and wouldnt have found somewhere so central for the price we paid on laterooms. Also there was no problem in leaving our bags there all day after checking out at lunchtime but with a late flight.

Breakfast was awful. A vacuum packed bread roll.

The friendly service could not be bettered, right from the first emailed communication. The room was spotlessly clean, though the bed was rather unyielding! However, I do have to mention that, having read the reviews about the bathroom in one case being across the hallway, I emailed to ensure that our room was not THE one. I was assured that the room was DEFINITELY ensuite. On arrival, however, we were dismayed to find that there are in fact two rooms with bathrooms outside of the room, and we could choose one of these two. We were, to say the least, disappointed to have been misled. On our return, I emailed to convey our disappointment and received a totally charming reply that it had been a mistake. I am not happy that our communication of only hours before could be the subject of a "mistake". However, if you are prepared not to have a bathroom ensuite, and can have a room at the rock-bottom price offered, then Giampy is your place. Close to everything and helpful staff.

This is a 'value for money', central and clean accomodation if thats what you are looking for. We stayed there for three nights. It is a very small place with 4-5 rooms, indeed (I think) it is converted from a large flat. There is a dining area in the middle. The first night I could hear a bit of noise people having breakfast, but later we were told that this was because a big group (4 rooms) were leaving the same day. The following two days were ok. No noise. Room was cleaned everyday, everything was in working order, and no problem with hot water. It is situated in a very central location, only a short walking distance from Termini Station and metro and bus connections. Staff (well Andrea) was extremely friendly, helpful, responsive and fluent in English. We had a bit of problem when he told that we will need to pay in cash as their agreement with credit card agency ended. But he resolved it by suggestion another practical solution which worked fine for us(and he said it is temporary problem). So overall, if you are looking for a budget accomodation, you can certainly try this place
