The hotel itself is weird as the hotel sallustio shares the building with 2 or 3 other hotels with each hotel being on a different floor. From what I could tell - the hotel sallustio occupys floors 3 and 6 of the building. The lift can take only 3 people and there is only one lift servicing the building. It's rather slow but serviceable especially as we were on the 6th floor. The main areas of the hotel are shabby and in varying degrees of cleanliness probably due to the fact the common areas are not necessarily owned by the hotel. The button to call the lift was hanging off of the wall! But once you enter your room it is totally different! Small rooms but 100% clean and modern. Bed was comfortable and we slept well. Working air conditioning which was welcome in July! Bathroom only had a shower but we prefer this but to be honest the water was very cold all weekend. This may be because we were on the 6th floor and all the lower floors were using all the hot water - try and get a room on lower floors if you like your showers hot! The view was negligible - nothing worth looking at but plenty to see in Rome so why stay in your room for a view!!
The staff in lobby are helpful and upon asking provided a street map and noted the nearest bus stops, what the bus numbers were and drew where they went. They also called taxi's for us when needed.
It is in a good location. €7 euro taxi ride to Spanish steps and coliseum areas. 6 minute walk to the termini to get the bus to the airport and to find the tourist buses. We recommend the Roma Christina tourist buses as they are the only ones which have roof's to offer shelter from the sun in summer while still offering unrestricted views of the sights for taking photos plus they offered one of our party free 48hour ticket!!
There is a restaurant right next door to the hotel. Open until the last client goes home! Food was lovely and reasonably priced by Rome standards. We asked for rum and coke and they had no rum so the owner went and brought some rum!! Excellent service. Be warned all food in Rome is good but the price can vary so be careful where you eat. A can of coke can cost as much as €5.00.
Overall we only paid £200 for 3 night break including flights so the hotel offered excellent value for money. The breakfast was included and was typical continental breakfast but always fresh and plentiful and clean. The location was also good. I tend to view city accommodation as a crash pad only and am perfectly happy with no frills and a little rough around the edges but depending on your individual expectations the hotel sallustio may not be for you. Happy holidays.
