“DO NOT GO HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
Reviewed February 13, 2012

We have just returned from Rome & stayed at this hotel. Basic is an exaggeration. We were in Centre 3 , located in a side street after a long walk from station. The area is fairly neglected & lots of graffiti on buildings ( including the hotel entrance). Room ( use this term very loosely) was on ground floor just off entrance, no frills at all, oops sorry had TV which did not work. Bathroom!! could not close door if sat on toilet as knees stuck out ( i am only average height) shower miniscule & wash basin not easily accessible. Breakfasts were ok ( served in cold eating room)None of staff spoke enough English to be of any help to those with a small but reasonable amount of italian never mind those with none. Would i return? NEVER!! I have never had need to criticise any hoptel in the past, and i have stayed in lots, but this was beyond belief.

Room Tip: Just do not go

We travel to Rome regularly with senior high school students and I would not use this hotel again. It is in one of the less salubrious parts of Rome, is quite a walk to the Metro, and at night it is a little concerning to be walking from Termini through this part of town. Some local restaurants within walking distance of the hotel, but overall I would avoid this establishment if possible.

The hotel's entrance is lower than road level. Their is no ramp for easy rolling of luggage so you have CARRY your luggage even if they have wheels. The rooms are okay. My children and I stayed in a relatively big room but lighting was very dim. The shower and toilet were passable. Ours was cleaned everyday. They didn't have a hair dryer. Instead, they had a butt dryer (that's what the staff at Reception said it was) which I found weird. Aircon temperature control is controlled by Reception so you have to call Front Desk for temperature adjustment.
It's quite far from the Termini and walking to it doesn't seem safe.

Receptionists overall are rude (except one gentleman during the evening shift).
Hotel is not convenient for families with babies, quarduple room is at the 4th floor, elevator (the slowest one in the world) goes up to 3rd. Then one has to carry luggage, prams, kids etc and "crawl" the narrow steps. They don't inform about this.

Room is overall good. Spacious bathroom, but be careful, do not open bathroom's window, it is dangerous for kids.

Breakfast is ok, the guy serving breakfast is polite. Don't eat the ham, it is terrible.

I regret I didn't pay 20 or 30 euros more to go to a better one.

Room Tip: Not for families with babies that need quarduple room.

Very rude staff except for one nice young woman. Horrible location, very scary area. The pictures on their site do not show the reality. Noisy. We were devastated on arrival but the hotel was prepaid by the agent. We had no choice but to stay there. Run away!!!!!!!!!!!
