I wasn't completely thrilled with this hotel. It isn't convenient at all to the train station (and public transportation to get to the hotel was a nightmare). The room itself was extremely clean. The A/C was weak but not too bad. You have to check in at the sister hotel, which is a really fancy hotel, and kinda makes you feel small after checking into this 5-star hotel and walking over to the 2-star :-)

If you want to see the Vatican, it is a great location...just down the street.

If you want to see everything else in Rome there are 1000s of places closer.

The breakfast location on top of the hotel was being reconstructed when I was there (which was one of the main reasons I stayed at the hotel), so that was disappointing. The food itself at the breakfast was very tasty though and you really do have a great view of the Vatican from the breakfast room.

Travelers beware! "Lemon Garden" is a single code name for several different properties, each with different characteristics. What you see in the web site is VERY different from where you may end up staying at!

We booked one of "2 wonderful and luxurious fully equipped apartments that can accommodate up to 5 guests". What we received was a standard European (that is, small) hotel room in a nondescript apartment. For a hotel room it was OK, but this was NOT what we booked (or expected).

The room was small and rather old. It had an old closet, a table, a small TV and that's it. The bathroom was clean, but there were no towel racks and no way to hang the shower nozzle. There was almost no shelf space at all.

Breakfast was very nice. Other hotel services (provided by Atlante Star) were so-so. For example, you are not entitled to the hotel's free airport shuttle, and while they'll let you use their shuttle, they charge 40 Euro per person (whereas other services charge as little as 35 for up to four people). You can use the internet station at the hotel (for a charge that is double the going rate in internet cafes in Rome). Consierge advice was friednly but poorly informed.

If you need a place to sleep at while in Rome, this is a nice place; if you expect something even remotely similar to what the web site presents, look elsewhere. For a romantic getwawy, stay away from this place.

The ads are very deceiving, i.e. claiming to have a private kitchen and jacuzzi(there is one but it doesnt work). The Lemon Garden is an extention of the "Atlante Star" - located a few steps away. Although the room amenities are not that great, it is basic, clean and certainly more than acceptable if you are simply going to be sleeping there. The location is absolutely fantastic, i.e. just around the corner from St Peters Sq and the Vatican, within walking distance to many other attractions and a bus stop just down the road. Breakfasts are provided by Hotel Atlante Star, hence you pay for a 3 star B&B, but get a 4 star breakfast, with great service. Rome has so much to do that one hardly spends time in the room, hence the great location, good breakfasts and affordable rates all really appealed to us

In spite of what its advertising may suggest, it is not a pleasant, intimate B&B: Lemon Garden is really an annex of the Atlante Star Hotel - you get a reasonably clean room with a small bathroom in an anonymous apartment (quaint lift though) in a building three doors away. The jacuzzi doesn't make up for there being nowhere to hang towels and not enough shelf space for toiletries. Nor is it an apartment - it claims to offer private kitchen and sitting room - don't be fooled - there's no kitchen and the sitting room is actually two sofas in a murky, shared hallway. You do get breakfast in the hotel's restaurant with great views, but 50-50 chance of surly service and the slowest lift in the world - we gave up a couple of times and went to the cafe nearby. The much-vaunted roof terrace is a rubbish-strewn concrete desert. You can certainly do better than this.
