We found that there were a few problems with this hotel.Firstly we are both registered disabled and the shower was on mixer taps over a bath,my partner struggled to get over the bath to shower.The air conditioning was a hit & miss if it worked and the temp outside was 94dgrs.We asked for the beds to be put together but it was not done.We booked the hotel because it had a swimming pool,then the day we wanted to use it it closed @12noon as they were having a wedding that eve.There was no info in the room about how to work the air conditioning ect.All they had was a note to tell what time breakfast was.I have stayed in many hotels and they always have an instruction book.Also there was demolition work on the other side of the car park with a digger going most of the day.Plus it would be nice to have tea facilities in the room.
Nice clean hotel
Food good but expensive watch out for the table charge for sitting down to eat
Metro station is far away to walk esp with children at least half an hour and it the heat it is hard work
There is a bus stop outside the hotel, but no clear timetable and staff do not know when it comes so its a bit hit and miss
On the way back we stopped outside the metro for food and a taxi back to hotel reasonable
Bus back from metro station is caught further back from the station so ask reception
The hotel is a decent ride from the airport, close to a Metro station which will take you right into the historical heart of Rome in just a few stops.
The only non-atractive side is that there are no night activities close by.
We did enjoy our stay in it.
Daytime staff at this Hotel were fabulous, once the evening staff came on the Hotel became a different place to staff. Unfriendly, unhelpful, sometimes aggressive!! Communication with the staff to the guest was not great to say the least. One girl on reception was amazing, unfortunately didn't get her name, Tall slim with glasses, she was Fab, so helpful, last day spoke to manager about problems and again totally fantastic. Bar staff were appalling, trying to get a cup of tea was like asking for the moon. Totally unhelpful, asked for tea on two evenings and was treated like a leper. Rooms beautiful, but move a magazine and you can see the dust and how the rooms are cleaned!! Great location if you want to stay outside of Rome and use the metro. Great hotel if the get the daytime staff would work all day and all night.

We are a young (mid-twenties) couple who were looking for a cheap and pleasant base from which to spend our days out exploring Rome, and we were not disappointed.
A lot of the less positive reviews seem to come from a place of misplaced expectations. This is a modestly priced hotel in a busy tourist city, so for people travelling on a budget who are prepared to forego a few luxuries you couldn't do better than this hotel. Yes, the rooms are small. And yes, it is in a less glamorous part of town (there are prostitutes on the streets at night - I advise against family stays - and it is next door to a university). But the rooms are very clean and well-furnished, the staff are lovely, and it's in an extremely convenient location 10 minutes walk from a well-connected metro station (three stops to the Colosseum). Recommend the €18 three-day unlimited travel pass. Also breakfast is great, but not for the fry-up lover - good selection of breads, cereals, cold meats and cheese, and pastries. It's Europe, so when in Rome...
So, for young people or those travelling on a budget without children, who just want somewhere decent to sleep between adventures into Rome, this place is just about perfect.
Nice hotel - good value for the 70€ price we paid. Hot breakfast - one of the best we encountered on a two week tour.
10€ cab ride to Collisseum, 15 minute walk to Garabella Metro, or bus stop about 5 min walk.

A couple of miles south of the city centre, EUR takes its name from Esposizione Universale di Roma, built for an exhibition in 1942. The bombastic architecture was then intended to glorify Fascism, but now is home to shops, cinemas and clubs and exhibitions. Within the marble halls there are also three very good museums, including the fascinating Museum of Roman Civilization.
