We were 5 friends staying in this hotel for 3 nights. We chose it mainly because of the location as we were arriving late and it is really close to Termini station and because it was cheap.
We were welcomed by Bruno, really nice guy who took us to "apartment" lets say hostel room like 200 m far from original address. The room was basically a room for 2 people, with additional bunk bed and extra bed with not much extra space. The towels were changed each day and room was cleaned as well, I was surprised in positive way as I didnt expect such a good service in only one star hotel. We had there flat screen TV and laptop with internet connection, wifi as well. The bathroom was clean, but the shower didn´t work properly - biggest disadvantage.
We got something like coupon for breakfast in small cafe like 50 m far from our room. We could chose there coffee and something sweet (croissant etc). If breakfast is your main dish, you could be dissapointed.
If you are planning to pay with card (we booked the room via booking.com) you will be charged extra fee - 5 € per each 100 € paid - this was a surprising information for us, as normally you are not charged paying with credit card and I personally don´t like to carry with me big amounts of cash. Does it work like this in Italy? Or why we were asked to pay extra for paying with credit card? I had no idea.
If you decide to stay here I would recommend you to eat in Sapori Di Casa, which is really close.
Shortly said if you are looking for cheap accomodation with good location (good in meaning close to station and to center by metro, not in secure way) and you want just to sleep somewhere, this is good idea, but don´t have too big expectations. I would recommend it for budget and lowcost travellers.
2 stars instead of 3 cos of the broken shower and unexpected additional fees, as I consider these two things really important.
