“Centrally located budget hotel”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

This hotel is perfectly located in the centre of Rome. 10 Mins walk from Termini Station, and 2 Mins walk to Cavour Metro Line. Most major sights are within walking distance, and the Hotel is surrounded by restaurants and shops

The room was clean and neat, albeit a bit on the small side, and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The walls are a bit thin, so if you plan on having a quiet getaway, hope for quiet neighbors. One downside that must be noted is the comically small shower. As a medium-built South African (Which translates to "Giant Italian") I had a lot of trouble moving around in the shower.

The breakfast is great and offers a bit more than the standard Italian breakfast (Bread, Bread, Bread). There is also a beautiful roof terrace which provides a Panoramic view of the surrounding area.

The Coffee shop directly adjacent to the hotel serves the best coffee I've ever tasted. I would definitely stay in this hotel on future trips to Rome

We had a 3 day city break and chose this after reviewing on Trip Advisor. The room was small but extremely clean and the friendly nature of the staff was second to none. Pictures on this site really do reflect the rooms very well, although I was genuinely surprised at house comfortable the bed was. The hotel is in a great location in a quaint street away from the main thoroughfares, which meant we weren't disturbed by traffic noise.
It's just a short walk to the colosseum from here, and it's very easy to get around. We walked everywhere, but if you prefer the metro is just a couple of minutes from the hotel. I found this place delightful, and would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone.

Location is excellent, 5 minutes walk to the Colusseum, 10 minutes to the Termini train station, 1 minute to the Metro (athough you won't need the metro, most things apart from the Vatican can be walked to in 20 minutes). Plenty of resteraunts close by.

Hotel staff are very friendly and helpful. We were given a map by the receptionist when we arrived and she told us the best places to eat, see and how to get to them.

We stayed in a double room for 4 nights. The rooms are on the small side, but very clean and well maintained, as is the whole hotel. It is situated on a backstreet, so noise from outside is minimal. Buffet breakfast was good, continental style, but all fresh food.

Only negative would be the shower in the room, it was a small bath (too small to use as a bath) with a shower unit over it. It would have been easier to use if it was a cubical (i am being picky by putting this).

I would definatly recommend to my friends, and will stay there again when i revisit Rome.

Good value for money and great central location close to monumental sites. Plenty of good restaurants close by. Small hotel where the staff are friendly and helpful and the rooms are very clean if a little on the small side. Good buffet breakfast.

The good experience started when I first got in touch with them, my million questions were answered kindly and in a perfect English and that made me feel so good since we were traveling to Rome for the first time.
When we got there we found exactly the kindness and smiles that came through the emails, and again, we felt so comfortable.
The location, the cleanliness, the good breakfast were perfect match to a warm and professional atmosphere.
We will be back and we will tell family and friends.

We stayed here on a 3 night trip to rome and booked after reading reviews on tripadvisor. We really loved the location, down a lovely quiet cobbled street, and within walking distance to all the main attractions. The metro is also only a 2 min walk if you would rather use this to get around! The rooms were small, but clean and comfortable and the breakfast was lovely! The staff were all extremely friendly and very helpful. Theres no problem leaving your bags and waiting on the sofas by reception if you have an early check in or late departure!

Good value for the price but don't book a single room if you are taller than 1,80

Pros: Service is very friendly and good. Breakfast is good. Cozy roof terrace.
....…
Cons: Very-very-very small single room, I would say on the boarder to be unusable.
