Family city break

Posted Apr 10, 2014
Pros: If the hotel was more realistic about their rating which can only be a three star, then its great value. Great location. Great access to tube n tram.
Cons: Better directions from metro on the website. Better storage. Bedside tables could have been cupboards for "smalls". WWW info about renovation
Location: Local facilities are great and authentic Roman, used by locals. Felt safe even at night. Easy to get to main attractions but also just far enough away
To begin with the directions from the Metro were unclear. To get there go on the Metro "A" line to station Manzoni. Then walk along the Viale Manzoni and take second left onto Via Matteo Boiardo. On arrival all was good. Friendly staff, prompt check in. There was painting going on due to previous reviews about decor being dated. The receptionist also pre-warned us that the somewhat less than clean carpets were going to be replaced. Then to the room. These were disappointingly small. There wasn't sufficient facilities for two people to totally unpack. E.g. there were no draws for underwear, and the closet was very small. The closet door only just cleared the bed and we had to go sideways to pass each other. We had a "lovely" view of the sports yard of the local sports college, and school playground. The website somewhat misleadingly gives a view of some arched pallasades and a court yard as if these are part of the hotel. They aren't. They are part of the school. This was noisy early and late into the evening. The windows are double glazed but it was too warm to have them closed. Wi-fi worked fine. Bathroom was very nice, again if a little "compact". Fresh clean towels and linen. We didn't take breakfast but it looked very nice. Main attractions are within easy public transport reach. Number 3 tram or A line metro. All staff were lovely and polite, and very attentive.

Convenient location in Rome

Posted Apr 6, 2014
Location: The Coliseum is about 10 minutes away on foot.
The best thing about this hotel is the staff: very helpful and friendly. They'll give you directions, advice, tips and generally make you feel welcome. The bathroom had a bit of an unpleasant smell, but that could be as much due to Rome's plumbing system than the the hotel's. There's a fitness centre a few metres away, which is nice. It's also about a 5-minute walk to the Manzoni Metro station, which will get you to most areas of the city, and the #3 tram/bus line is very near. Other reviewers have complained about small rooms, but this one (a double) was fine, not huge, but adequate, and the bed was very comfortable.

HOtel has a very good locTIOn with only few minutes walk to Manzoni metro stop and only 2 stops to termini station. REceptionist is very helpful and friendly and guided us to all attractions. Rooms are slightly small.

Quiet street, great staff

Posted Jun 28, 2013
Pros: On a quiet street, not near attractions- but liked that. Close to metro and bus stops and found great restaurants.
Cons: I would give all 5s- just mini bar not work and small shower for guys. But they offered us another room- so good.
Location: Blocks to walk to colosseum, nice streets, markets. Loved restaurants - Buoni Amici, Cannavota, and Merulana. Easy to hop on buses/ metro as stated.
Great stay- comfortable, clean, great staff, nice breakfast!! Would stay again and tell friends.
