“Clean rooms, great location, helpful manager”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2012

The rooms were clean basic and comfortable. The beds were good so we had a confortable sleep. The location is ideal to see the sights of Rome and only a few blocks from Termini station for access to the Metro and the airport trains/ buses. Our first night we had a room with walls that were very thin so we heard everything going on in the next room. The manager was responsive and moved us to another room for our next 4 nights and that room was quiet. The hotel is set back on an inner courtyard so it is quiet and away from street noise. The bathrooms are small but clean although the cleaning product they use has an unusual unpleasant vinegar like smell. Breakfast was ok, but not great. The price was very good for Rome. The front desk manager was very friendly and helpful on several occasions. Overall a good stay.

I stayed here one night and chose it both because of the location and the not so expensive price for Rome (61 euros). Location is really good, just 3 minutes walking from Termini Central Station. But receptrion staff was not quite friendly. They were politeenough but the feeling is strictly bussiness like, not what you expect at a hotel though. The room was on the ground floor and I had some reservations about noise and safety, but did not have a problem at all. It was comfortable, noticeably renovated recently, particularly the bathroom, that worked perfectly. Wi-fi was fast and good. Breakfast just bread and again, the awkward feeling that you're just another business for hotel and not a guest. But I had a good sleep there and I may stay again if there's the need to.

We got a private room, really clean and confortable with good location for who gets metro. Breakfast was ok. We paid the price of a hostel with the commodities of a hotel, so it was really worth it.
The biggest problem was...Rome. The city has great monuments, but that's all.

A great little budget hotel, nicely located near the Termini station. Room and bathroom are small, but very clean. The people at the reception are friendly and helpful. Free wifi is a plus and breakfast is simple, but good enough to start the day. For the price it is an excellent hotel if you'll be out, exploring the city!

Well, the hotel is not on the street iself , it is behind the first row of buldings in an internal yard.
Hotel is situated close to Termini Station , but just far enough to be out of the station noise and crowd.
We got room number 2 - first floor - no elevator , around 20 stairs to climb.
Rooms are clean, bathroom is correct - TV is a little bit small , but you don't go to Rome to stay in your room watching TV ^^.
Breakfast is simple :
a caraf of fruit juice - a cornetto - a panino - 1 biscotte - botter and marmelade at choice - cereals - yoghourt - some cheese
Just enough to start the day
The breakfast takes place in the reception or you can have in your room
The reception is small - only 3 little tables.
Good quality/price : cheap hotel
Only default in my opinion : too close to Termini to enjoy the night living in the center of Rome...

Don,t go here expecting 4star accommodation, but having said that the staff were excellent the rooms were clean and you are close to all the amenities ie train station tour buses and you can walk to most of the main attractions of Rome. for a short stay in Rome I would recommend
