I stayed here with my partner for three nights, 27 to 30 April 2012. I selected the hotel through Tripadvisor and by Google mapping the Termini Station neighborhood. Since I was taking the train, the Hotel location is excellent. It is literally only about 15 minutes from the train platform to the front desk if you've done your Google homework. The Via Gaeta is an amazingly quiet street in this very noisy city. Our room was on the fourth floor front and even with the windows open there was very little noise. The location is also interesting because it is very close to the Baths of Diocletian ruins, a lovely archeology museum and the Mary and All Angels Basilica. The restaurants in the neighborhood did not strike me as particularly appealing, but that's just me, probably. the room was average size with a high cieling and a large double bed wich was a little too firm for my friend but fine for me. There was adequate closet space and a safe in the closet suitable for laptops, cameras, etc. there was a free minibar with a small selection of softdrinks and water. There was a circular corner shower just big enough for one adult, but it was fine and water did not escape out onto the floor if you were careful. The sink had ample space for two persons' toilet items. Towels were large and absorbent and there were ample linens. the room was very clean, attractive and well maintained. We did not choose a rate that included breakfast as my friend usually sleeps in beyond the breakfast hours, but I purchased the breakfast buffet, (12 euros/person) each of the three mornings. there is a large breakfast room and your average buffet fare was offered. The food was certainly adequate, but nothing special. There is free wifi in the hotel with reception more reliable in the public areas than it was in our room. There are three PCs available for guests in the lobby area. they were always available and worked fine. For some reason the hotel has just added a small gym and a small sauna. They both struck me as under utilized and oddly located right off the lobby, maybe a waste of space and money. I reserved the room on-line so I must have known what the cost was, and I realize hotels in Rome are expensive but this room cost 197 euros Friday night, 260 euros saturday night and 188 euros Sunday night for a whopping 645 euros or about 850 US dollars. Then there were the three breakfasts and 15 euro room tax so the bill was over 900 dolars for three nights. After all was said and done it struck me as pretty expensive for what was offered, but this is a clean, quiet, comfortable hotel with pleasant staff.
