We were looking for a good value hotel close to the train station just for two nights. Having arrived early evening after a long day travelling we walked to the hotel, directed by a very friendly taxi driver who kindly volunteered directions. The hotel is located just north of the Termini, our guide book warned of the area to the south as being unsafe. In truth had it of been any later we would of used the taxi as we were very aware of our surroundings. Italy now has a huge problem with immigration and like most cities around the world main line stations are a big draw for the homeless. The whole atmosphere was unsavoury and the presence of men congregating on the streets and leering was intimidating. On arrival there were three staff in the tiny reception area, two of which appeared to do absolutely nothing except smoke, read the paper and pet the dog, while the one guy who was friendly and helpful was running around like a lunatic seeing to the guest needs including arranging some extra pillows for us. The hotel was quirky, clean and met our needs. The furnishings had seen better days along with the interior of the building but we had a comfortable stay.
