"Surly staff"
There is a bar at the back of the hotel that is rowdy on the weekends and is open til 6 am! Surly staff. The room is nice and seem newly renovated but thin walls you can even hear the conversation of your next door neighbor. Breakfast is awful. No cappucino or espresso just coffee from a dispenser and this is Italy! Even a small guest house has a cappucino/ espresso machine.

"What you pay wahat you get"
We stayed at the hotel for 2 nights, which it was ok , the hotel is located just across of Porta Maggiore.there were a few things that really disappointed me: Breakfast was poor, for not saying that it was awful, you have to pay wifi ,$ 2 per night ,( in century XXI, this is ridiculous), the pillows were really hard, and you can hear the 'movement' on the hallways, it was kind of noisy . it is located about 10-15 minutes from the city center. For the rate that we paid , it was what we get.If you need to stay within a budget this hotel is for you .

"Wi-fi is not FREE, breakfast sucks"
They are still trying to get money from you for using internet. I didn't like that attitude. Place is near a tram stop which you can take to go to center. Or you can walk to a nearby metro station in 5-10 minutes. Clean room, air conditioning is OK. Bed was not very comfortable. Breakfast was horrible. Only croissant, cornflakes and fruit juice. MODERATE.

This hotel is old, but well maintained. The neighborhood is not the best, although we never had any problems nor we were afraid when out at night. There is a bus stop right outside the hotel and the closest metro stop is about a 10 minute walk. There were several terrific restaurants a couple of blocks from the hotel. The staff was quite nice and helpful. Rooms were quiet.

"Good price, but many problems"
Pros: Great price Wifi was the best I found in Rome (small fee but worth it - not 100% perfect but good enough to skype/etc) Cons: Towels were only slightly thicker than paper napkins No outlets by the bed Very loud traffic circle outside and thin walls Lousy bed Not as close to termini as you think! And still a 10 min walk to the metro Breakfast was just croissants and cold cereal - ok for one day but gets old quickly Also see note about also charging the city tax -- the amount shown that "includes taxes" does not include this!

"OK hotel with some nice amenities at a great price"
The hotel is located a good 15-20 minute walk away from Termini, so it isn't particularly close to many attractions and isn't in the most pleasing part of Rome. You can walk about 10 minutes to the park and take the subway to anywhere you want to go in the city though. The room was very OK, especially in American standards. The big benefit was the window that opened up to the main circle with some Roman ruins. I think the courtyard facing rooms were a bit more updated and less noisy, but I don't know for sure. The staff was relatively nice and accommodating. There is a decent restaurant in the hotel and a rooftop bar, which is a very nice evening hangout. You can buy their house wine at the front desk for a very low price and the bar tender will open the bottle for you for no charge and will give you glasses to take to your room. Overall, this was a good budget hotel option, but no more than that.

"Helpful staff, but that's it."
Beware of the photos posted online, they are not accurate (although I'd love to know where they're actually taken from, because that place looks awesome). Our first room smelled like mold, so we requested a new room and stayed in it. Beds were extremely firm, pillows to match. On the plus side, second room had a refrigerator and AC and the staff helped us quickly when we had the mold issue with the first room.

"Nice hotel - Would stay again"
We walked from the train station which was not a good idea. It isn't too far but the sidewalks are mostly cobblestone and hard on the wheels. Take a cab; it is close and not too costly. There is a bus right out the front door and it offers easy access to sites throughout Rome. I would definitely stay there again.

"NOT worth the price!"
NOT, I REPEAT NOT within 'easy walking distance' of Rome Termini Station (especially with any luggage). About $7 euro ($10US) by taxi or $2 euro ($3.50US) by usually crowded tram system which stops in the plaza.. Make sure you get a room with a view of the plaza if you don't mind the sounds of the city. One exception might be the main drag is the route for ambulances headed to some nearby hospital. Restaurant is like a convention hall with the exception of one corner by the waiters access door. What I like to call a 'sardine' shower with room for one and DO NOT drop the soap.

Plumbing in the bathroom is old. Water pours out of the shower anywhere, not on the body. And it is not removable, and sticks out from the pipe. In a bathroom stall door closed tightly, the water gets on the floor. Breakfast was poor: scones, croissants, cereals, yogurt, coffee, tea, juice. Neither of cheese or sausage, or cereal.

"A Nice Stay in Rome"
Hotel staff are all really nice, and everyone I encountered spoke great English. The room was clean and reasonably comfortable, though the room we got had a really small window with no view. That didn't matter too much to use since we came to Rome to site see and not sit in a hotel room. The location is bit of a walk from the metro stop, but there is an above ground train, and bus stop right outside of the hotel. The bus and above ground train can get REALLY crowded on the way back to the hotel, as the line is a major commuter route for people out in the suburbs. It seems really close to Termini, but it reality it is a mile away. Not really close to anything else, but for the price it worked out great for us. Also I'm a big Ancient Roman nerd, and getting to stay that close to the Aurellian walls got me really excited.

"Good for the price"
The area where the hotel is located is a little sketchy, but it's a short 10 minute walk to the nearest metro and there are many available buses right in front. There is a cute little gelato place right next door, and if staying there go check out Il tempio di Minerva for dinner. Some staff was really helpful, guess it depended on whose shift it was. Wifi gets charged by the hour/day. You have to pay a cash only hotel tax upon check in (standard in Italy). Continental breakfast consists of just bread, yogurt, and cereal. The room itself was small, but clean, good closet space. Only complaint was the bathroom, where you are better off taking a shower using a spray bottle. Overall, it was an okay place to stay.

"Ok place, poor location"
The staff seems to think this is 4 star-place, but it's slid to 2-star. Room is clean and ok. 2 out of 3 beds in our room were really bad--you could feel the springs, or the frame was jerry-rigged and very uncomfortable. The TV didn't work and looked like an 1990's computer monitor. The neighborhood is not at all nice, though we never felt in danger coming home at night. It's a half mile walk to the metro and almost a mile to the train station, so coming and going isn't all that easy. The breakfast and dining room are both very nice and the lobby is pretty stylin'. In it's day this was a nice hotel, but it's on the skids. They charge an arm and a leg for wifi, and it's not that easy to find around town in Roma.

Honestly, for the price the room was great. Had a little problem needing twin beds and although they couldn't accommodate us for the first night they fixed the problem the next day. Biggest complaint was no wi-fi unless you were willing to pay $5 per day per device. I blame myself for assuming this was now an everyday service.

The staff was not very friendly, internet fee was higher than anywhere we had been (5euros for 3hrs as opposed to 4 euros for24hrs) at 10:05 we were told breakfast was closed. We were given a disabled person room and so taking a shower was a nightmare. There were no carpets at all in the room... Finally the location is not very safe although there was a nice local coffee shop next to it.

"Stay somewhere else"
I recently stayed at this hotel over a 4 day period. First, when you check in, they expect you to pay a "City Tax" which is 2 Euro a day and it must be paid in cash. When I got to my room, the first thing I did was turn on the A/C as I had been traveling all day and it was hot, about 75F/24C out. The A/C did not work. I called the front desk and they said they would have to have someone look at it in the morning. Fine I thought, just open the window. Bad Idea. The location of the hotel is in at a very busy intersection and the traffic and train noise was very loud. I tried the next day to get the A/C fixed but received some song and dance about the maintenance person not being there. This was the same story for most of the trip. The bathroom had this very odd smell and I could not determine if it was the water or sewage. The shower is insanely small, I am not that big and I had a hard time taking a shower. The website advertises a mini bar in the room. Yes there is one, but mine was empty. The location of the hotel also seems like it is in a bad area, the touristy areas are about 2 miles away. The WiFi is not free as advertised. It is 20 Euro for 3 days. I constantly had problems with the connection where it was either really slow or non-existant. I would not stay here again.

"Too much noise in and around the hotel."
Apparently, the hotel is undergoing some sort of renovation and there is a lot of noise 24 hours a day. Gets really annoying at night. You will get plenty of noise from the outside if your room is located in the back. There is some sort of an establishment there (a restaurant or a bar, perhaps) and its employees (I guess) had fights outside (verbal or otherwise) almost every night. Hotel is located in a district where pickpockets bring their merchandise for sale. My iPhone was stolen in Spagna subway station and I got signals from it from just a few hundred meters away from the hotel. It's not nice to see gangs of people chasing tourists (very easy to detect their intentions by observing them) around the place you stay (especially you like taking a walk late at night). We were shocked after seeing what they serve for breakfast, which is practically nothing.

"Ok hotel but not centrally located."
The hotel was ok, bar tender was the best and nicest out of all the people, and they offer a decent dinner for 15 euro per person. BUT you may be just 20 minutes walking from the colosseum but other than that you are 2+ miles from anything because u are on the opposite side of it all. There are not many places to eat, get gelato or see. I would normally not mind but the 4 days we were there the WiFi was down and the entire staff was very blunt and not warming or accommodating. When we return in a few days we will defiantly not be stay here again.

This hotel was older than expected, but it met our needs and it was well-maintained. The staff was very nice and helpful, even though they were very busy. It is right across from a Tram station that takes you to the main Terminal in Rome, which is very convenient since that is where you find the tour buses, airport shuttles, metro stations, etc. Our room was a little tight since we had three beds, but we only were there to sleep and it was always clean, which was what was important to us. Our stay included breakfast, which was good, but a little limited with it's selections. The waiters were great and very helpful.

"Advertised Amenities Do Not Exist"
We booked this hotel for a brief over night before leaving for a cruise. We had minimal requirements that did not extend far beyond the basics for a 3 star hotel. My wife and I have traveled to Rome before, and knew that a few criteria were a must: A/C (especially for the summer), an en suite bathroom (w/c), late check-in, and wifi. This hotel advertised all of the above. Once we arrived, we found the a/c not working. After bringing this to the staffs attention, they told us that they don't run the a/c until the summer. It was defiantly summer - which I expressed, then they said they will fix it tomorrow; great, since we were only there for one night :( . The bathroom had the towels awaiting us in the bidet. The television randomly turned itself on and off, so we unplugged it. Do to the warmth, we opened the window only to find that at 4 am - like a Hitchcock movie meeting my cousin vinny - hundreds of screeching birds were flying by our window well into 9 am. To top it all off, the wifi was only available in the lobby, but it did not work. I tried for an hour with a room of many other frustrated guests. All the staff said was "it works" but did nothing to make sure or even check to see that it was truly not working. My advice, if you are looking at this hotel, just book a hostel. If you are looking for basic amenities, at minimum book a 4 star hotel when in Rome.

The bathroom smelled like rotten sewage and we weren't sure if it was the water or not. Breakfast was no more than a croissant and some cereal. It was however located next to a bus stop. Had we figured out the bus routes we would have taken them. It was about a 10 min walk to the metro which the desk guys weren't very helpful in finding. We took a taxi from the airport here so they dropped us off at the front entrance.

Other than the bus stop across the street nothing about this location was convenient. VERY limited restaurants in the area. The wait staff in the hotel restaurant was so rude, we didn't even stay for our dinner reservations. There is nothing to do close to the hotel so you couldn't find any entertainment close to hotel closer to the evening hours. NO INTERNET in rooms, not even wired! The staff was not helpful and at time downright rude. The room smelled of mold at first but had a balcony so aired out quickly. If I could have gotten a refund, I would have changed hotels.

"Big hotel on a busy street"
I knew that this hotel was near major streets and not far from the train station, so I made a major error in not asking for a room away from the street. The roar of traffic was very, very loud -- a combination of a major intersection for regular traffic and heavy vehicles, the screech of streetcars, to roar of motorcycles, and the background sound of the train. If we'd had a different room, I don't think it would have been half as loud, but as it was, it was not easy to sleep. On the other hand, the hotel staff was extremely professional and more than ordinarily efficient. They helped us in every possible way to organize a packed breakfast for an early departure and they were a good source of information.
