Brilliant, comfortable self catering apartments. Breakfast available - optional. We really enjoyed our stay with our 9 month old boy! Could have been a little closer to Vatican, but we didn't mind , only 15 min walk, and we loved it!

Poorly maintained, room not fully cleaned, staff entered room without knocking on the door, no coffee or tea or milk on arrival had to go to a supermarket. Only one hairdrier for the whole hotel, no international power adaptors

This is an awesome quiet air-conditioned apartment hotel with spacious rooms just 30 minutes walking distance from the Vatican and 20 minutes from the San Pietro FR3 station. The FR3 connects with the FR1 at Trastevere Station for a less than 45 minute ride to the airport. Two supermarkets are nearby plus lots of small food shops of all kinds and types. This place has great staff and I would recommend buying your guided day trips here as well. The hotel has a vested interest in your returning safely at the end of the day. The hawkers on the street do not. I recommend the McDonald's on the nearby square for coffee and breakfast.
"One of the least welcoming Accor Hotels"
09/23/13 oldman58 Amsterdam, The Netherlands
I try and stay at Accor hotels around the world because of their consistency high staff quality. Frankly this is so unrepresentative of the groups normal standard I was shocked The staff were really uninterested The hotel was shabby All that having been said against other mid price hotels in Rome still worth considering
"Relaxing base for visiting Rome...only small downsides for us"
09/11/13 David Lee Manchester
Just back from six nights here and we were very happy with our stay. We wanted somewhere handy for city touring, but also peaceful and - importantly for us - where we could cook meals and "do our own thing". Overall it ticked all the boxes, although some small downsides including a more basic and dated kitchen than we expected, the odd cleaning policy, and the poor/intermittent Wi-Fi (last two as highlighted by others) None of these though were particularly bothersome for us, and we guess reflect the fact this is quite an old apart-hotel, from the look of things only recently incorporated into the Adagio brand. The rooms were nothing like as flash as the only other Adagio we'd stayed in (Cologne) or even Citadine apart-hotels. But for us it more than made up for this by its charm, green and peaceful "holiday feel" including big private outside terraces, great for outdoor meals etc, and of course the swimming pool/sunbed area in a lovely garden setting. Although simply furnished the room was a good size with comfortable bed, TV, key-operated safe and good bathroom. Despite the small and basic kitchen area (comprising old electric hob, microwave, fridge, sink) we managed to cook all meals for our stay. There's a good supermarket about 5 -10 minutes walk away on Piazza Pio XI, along with other fruit/vegetable shops, cafes etc also a newsagent where you can buy Rome bus/metro travelcards. The strange cleaning policy (daily cleaning on offer for 3 night stays, none for stays of 4 - 7 days and only one clean for an 8 night stay) was mystifying but not a big issue for us, given plenty of towels were provided along with two big dispensers with quite good soap/shampoo for hand basin and shower/bath, washing up liquid etc. Not being internet addicts we were ok with the patchy Wi-Fi, as indeed previous generations seemed to have very happily managed without. Getting to and from Rome centre by bus or bus/metro was straightforward after initial working out the route/service options, usually taking about 20 minutes or so...evidently dependent on where you're going, also buses taking notably longer at rush-hour. All the useful bus stops are 5 - 10 (max) minutes walk from the hotel. The friendly reception staff are very helpful on travel and general sight-seeing tips. From our experience other tips would be: a) the 3 day Roma pass (€34 each) worked well for us, cost effective for the places we visited (we chose the Colisseum/Forum and Castell San Angelo as our two included sites) and especially for avoiding the long queues at the Colisseum, along with unlimited metro/bus/tram travel. b) we were pleased that - despite some temptation - we declined "skip-the-line" touts while queuing for the Vatican museum who charge €30 for what is normally a €16 ticket. They greatly exaggerate the queuing time, with what we were told would be a 2-3 hour wait actually being a pleasant enough 45 minutes, and there is absolutely no advantage on the time it takes, once you're inside them museum, to get to the Sistine Chapel (they claim you can save an additional hour here). If you're sure of your visit time booking on-line makes sense as you miss all the queues, or go after 1pm when queues are apparently far shorter.. c) Certainly in summer mosquitos seem an issue - plug in room repellent recommended.
"Great place to stay if you want a pool and to see Rome"
08/29/13 Paul G Brighton, United Kingdom
We stayed nine nights, and had no problems with the cleaning policy - the deal is part self-catering and if that is not OK there are plenty of hotels in Rome that offer the full-service package. We liked having a fridge and basicl kitchen facilities much more than we missed having our beds made. The pool is lovely - only problem being restricted hours (please, Adagio, couldn't adults swim without lifeguard before 9.30?). The location isn't central, but public transport links are good once you get to know them - best advice is to get a map and a multi-trip ticket, and don't restrict yourself to the buses that go direct to the centre. There are loads of buses if you change at St Peter's, and it's an easy walk to Baldo degli Ubaldi Metro station. Walking to the Vatican is feasible, but not worth the effort. The walk to Janicolo and Trastevere via Doria Pamphilj park is really nice, though quite long. Hotel wifi isn't great, but it worked OK for us, mostly. Restaurant is nice, but don't miss "happy hour" (17.30-22.30) at Papagallo's bar if you want great value food and drink and a lively Italian atmosphere. Staff were helpful and patient;
"Good location and great restaurant"
08/29/13 pops1940 Bath, United Kingdom
Really enjoyed our stay here. We enjoyed being out of Rome itself as it gave us a chance to recharge our batteries. The small pool doesn't open until 9.30, which, if you are touring a hot city and you want to get in a swim, is too late. I am unsure if there is a policy in Rome which states you have to have a lifeguard, but if they could have a rule which states you swim at your own peril then they could increase the swimming pool hours. The Internet wasn't great but it was better than most of the places I stayed in in Italy - Europe generally is poor for Internet connections but Italy is one of the worse. It would have been useful if the hotel sold bus or transport tickets as we found that the local Tabac was shut for most of the time so we couldn't buy tickets, although the bus driver couldn't care less if you have tickets or not! Nice lobby, nice staff, nice room with a balcony and kitchenette. Would happily recommend this place.
"Decent Location, Strange Policies, Nice Place."
08/26/13 Tyson B Orem, Utah, United States
I just got home yesterday after a week long stay here. Upon arrival, I was fairly impressed. Helpful staff, nice lobby, etc. The rooms were large. Kitchenette with a fridge that actually could keep a cold temperature. Nice little balcony. The hotel overall didn't smell to well, but it was reasonably clean. As other reviewers have stated, the Wi-Fi is terrible. 3 euro for a card to access it, then each 24 hours after that you have to obtain a new recharge card from the front desk, and go through quite a few hoops in order to get it working decently. My main complaint - the cleaning policy. If you stay 1-3 nights, your room is cleaned every day. What doesn't make sense, is for Stays of 7 nights, your room is never cleaned. The entire time we were there we had no room service, no sheets changed, no towels, or anything. You must pay an "al-a-carte" cleaning fee. Somewhat backward. Beds were not very comfortable. Very thin mattress, and the sheets were farm from soft. Location is about a 1km walk from the Vatican, which isn't bad. Probably 25-30 minutes if you walk at a decent place. Overall, I don't think I would stay there again unless the Wi-Fi situation was fixed, and the cleaning situation revised.
