This hotel is not in the center of Rome but in a quiet and more residential area. I found this feature to be a great counterpoint to the incessant noise and hustle and bustle of central Rome. Still, close to the metro and bus stops. Staff was warm and welcoming and were happy to be of assistance. Our room was small but comfortable. There are several great areas on the ground floor to hang out and relax. Decorate like a home, rather than a hotel. A large buffet breakfast is included and served every morning from 7:30 am - 10:0 am. They even provided me with gluten free bread for my morning toast, a benefit I didn't,expect. There is a nice garden in the rear where guests can relax. In the evenings, the bar serves cold,cuts and cheese, a hot casserole of some kind of pasta (different very day), nuts, potato chips, etc. for no additional charge for guests. You can get wine and cocktails from the bar at an additional fee. Nice bathrooms with large soaking tubs. We walked a few blocks to a terrific restaurant for a great dinner. We wanted to leave our luggage with the hotel for a while on our last day, but the staff discouraged this and told. Us it would be easier and more convenient to store our luggage at the train station so we could spend more time in downtown prior to our afternoon train departure. We,should hasve insisted they store our luggage there instead. Don't try to have the train station hold your luggage unless you're prepared to wait in line several hours to do so
We were two people in a suite that accommodates 5 people so evidently it felt very spacious. Kitchen, living, dinette, master bedroom with a good walkin closet and a regular seized bathroom. The suite was very clean. Most Europeen hotels offer small bedrooms and washroom for appoximately the same price. Not a big breakfast table arrangement but the offering was good. Sliced cheese, not processed, ham, prosciutto, salami, hard boiled eggs, cream cheese, bagels, toast, croissants , paste rise, etc. A helpful, courteous staff. Walked to the Metropolitana and went everywhere with no problem. We did get lost once taking the bus the wrong direction. If you're not adventurous you must take a taxi to go to termini In Rome centre. Location could be a drawback for certain people. Dobkrome We recommend this hotel and will be back when visiting Rome thank you for a pleasant stay
- Thought the breakfast was nice and there was a decent selection
- Metro stop 5 minutes walk away very handy to get into the city
- Room and bathroom were very clean and tidy
- Shower was very nice
- Staff very friendly and helpful
- Neighbourhood the hotel located in isn't the nicest area and is quite noisy at night
- When asked why the air conditioning wasn't working we were told that the hotel was not allowed to switch it on as it was still "winter". This was annoying as it was warm and we had to leave window open at night, which wasn't ideal for sleeping due to noise of road outside
- Room walls are very thin and you can hear noise from nearby rooms
- Our "double bed" was just two single beds pushed together. Not great for comfort and could have done with the option of an extra pillow each
short bus ride to the termini or to Barbarini tram station/plaza
lovely hidden little hotel. reception staff I found helpful, especially Fred who couldn't do enough for us one evening due to unforeseen circumstances.
breakfast - choices there to keep us going, varied hot beverages, cold drinks and a variety of pastries, meats etc.
I was concerned after reading some reviews but found all the staff lovely - no complaints at all
the map the hotel provide is not much use though...esp. if you wear glasses, cant make out a thing so I would suggest using a map on how to get around rome from elsewhere,,but romes not an easy place to get around with any map!!
lovely ice cream place practically opp hotel called tropical ice...best ice cream ever

one of the best holidays we've been on, so much to do and see, it was breathtaking, we walked from morning till late evening as we stumbled upon more and more beautiful sites. The food was fab and the wine 😉. Must sees are the Roman ruins and colosseum they totally made our trip. Each day was a new adventure the vatican was breathtaking as you walked up the street to it. We found so many wonderful things from all the walking, Would recommend it to all.
Our first time in Rome and this hotel fitted the bill for our stay. Conveniently situated near a Metro making travel to sites in Rome easy to get to. The hotel staff are very friendly which made our stay all the more enjoyable. The room although basic, served its purpose as a place to lay our heads at the end of the night. There are restaurants, pizzerias and even a MacDonalds close by for evening meals (most places don't start serving until 7:30pm). Breakfast is ample with cereal, bread, eggs, pastries and meat(!) as well as a selection of hot drinks.
