          7.8

          This hotel was very close to Termini station and to the subway B line, so getting around in Rome was very easy. The room was on the smaller size, but was clean, decorated prettily and the bed was comfortable. Lots of good restaurants and caffes all around, so don't have to walk far for good food.

          The air conditioning was very poor. There was a fairly noisy cooling unit inside the room, but it did not work well at all. When we mentioned it to the front desk, they gave us a desk fan (that only worked on the highest setting). The hotel is in an old apartment building, with locals still living in there and in the neighboring houses, it seemed. Since it was so warm in the room, we opened the balcony door at night that was opening to the inside courtyard. As it turns out, pretty much everyone opens their window as well and one can hear everything the neighbors doing.

          Smell of drainsBreakfast room too small

        • Couple
          5.8

          Near Termini train station.

          Value for money was bad but only due to today's rate of exchange (sterling/euro). Breakfast could have been much better for a three star hotel. The annex was not satisfactory (10 metres away, dead pigeon on road outside, dustbins all over the place including inside hotel entrance, lift would not take more than two people with luggage - squashed in) so we demanded a room in the main hotel. Should not be the same price as a main hotel room.

        • Group of friends
          5.8

          breakfast was okay, good location and good hot shower.

          air conditioning, breakfast juice, coffee/tea poor. Open terrace was full of pigeons and is not very hygienic.

        • Couple
          6.2

          hotel is located few min walk from main train station termini

          breakfast is definitely a challenge

        • Family with children
          9.6

          the cleanliness, quiet location, quaintness of hotel

          the coffee was dreadful - so bad even a cup made from a jar of instant coffee would have been a big improvement

        • Group of friends
          8.8

          The staff was very helpfull (except a case where one member of the staff denied to give us a knife to clean some fruit, because as she said, "customers take the knives and never bring them back"!!). It is very close to the metro station, it is clean, and not expensive. I would use it again if I travel to Rome.

          Breakfast was very poor. Coffee was owfull (pity, in a city with such a tradition in good coffee).

        • Group of friends
          10.0

          Excellent location, very close to Termini station, shuttle bus from airport 2 min walk, very clean, good value for money

        • Group of friends
          8.2

          Close to Railway Station. Friendly staff, clean, quiet and airconditioned rooms.

          A little out of the way in regards to sites and decent restaurants. We needed the location due to an early morning train transfer so it suited our needs

        • Family with children
          8.2

          Close to Roma Termini and a Metro Station with several quaint places to eat nearby and reasonable in price. Laundromat for clothes also very close. Staff were excellent and helpful with all questions for us as tourist. Good value for money.

          Beds were too hard and pillows definitely not what we were accustomed to. Area hotel is in is quiet neighborhood and thus at night no activity. If going to Rome as a tourist, would suggest staying in area near Trevi Fountain if you like more activity and things to do at night. Lots of shops and restaurants and open late

        • Older travelers
          6.6

          high quality buffet breakfast, rooms tastefully furnished.

          Lift slow and apt to skip floors between ground floor and reception (5th floor).Also security guard locked himself out in afternoon and so no access available for over 15 minutes until another customer happened to come out of the hotel.

        • Family with children
          6.6

          Location near Termini

          Is a little expensive and has no luxury at all and the A/C barely cooled the room

        • Couple
          5.0

          Location is close to Termini

          Reservations made through Booked.net are allocated room in seperate building which is more of apartment converted to hotel rooms and it is incovenient to get to reception (5th floor adjacent building) higly overrated as most hotels in Rome..I guess folks there are tired of tourists give them a break go stay somewhere else..

        • Group of friends
          3.8

          location only

          very dirty......curtains and bedding very dusty....had we not prepaid, we would have checked out........never stayed in a hotel that dirty before....disgusing sums it up and I have never rated a hotel this way before...........
