A couple of nights in RomePosted Aug 15, 2014
The hotel is somewhat close to the Colosseum, on a quiet side street, which is a big plus. Another plus is the amazing breakfast and the cappuccinos. The rooms are small for a 4-star hotel (by American standards), and the staff is helpful, but not overly so.

The smallest double room in the worldPosted Jul 4, 2014
Pros: The staff was nice and friendly.
I paid for a double room or two single beds room for 5 nights. The room that was assigned to me was actually a single room "converted" in double by putting two single beds one next to the other. There was literally no room to move or to open a suitcase. The refrigerator didn't work. No free outlets near to the desk to plug the laptop (it was always a choice between having the lamp on and working on the laptop). The manager explained that they had overbooked the rooms but this is hardly a good explanation for a four-star hotel!

Moved hotel on arrival, terrifying location.Posted Jun 28, 2014
On arrival to our hotel we were overjoyed with the location, just down the road from the Collosseum and in a really nice area with an abundance of restaurants. However on reception in the hotel, we were told our floor was having electrical faults and so we would be moved to a different hotel. Me and my friend who I travelled with are two 21 year old girls, have never been to Rome before, and had our trip meticulously planned in order to facilitate costs, travel times, etc. Therefore we were understandably pretty worried about the situation. After trying to negotiate with the reception staff, as we think they did actually have rooms available, we were told point blank that we had to move to their other hotel. The hotel staff told us that it was very nice internally but when we asked whether the location was "nice" and "safe" the male representative shook his head. We asked for a partial refund as our location was a great deal further from the sightseeing locations, and therefore would cost is a lot more in travel, but the man told us that they would not do that as that was the responsibility of expedia, which I thought was disgusting. Instead he offered us complimentary breakfast and a room upgrade "but not a suite". We reluctantly agreed as we had no other choice. We actually ended up staying at the Eurostar Rome Aeterna hotel which was nice but located directly next to graffiti and intimidating gangs of men - not safe. (End of word allowance)

Nice lobby, terrible roomsPosted Jun 19, 2014
Unconfortable beds (two single beds pushed together), damp and humid room, no ventilation in the bathrooms, drainage problem of the sink and bath tub (took 3 minutes for water to drain! Which made washing baby bottles very messy and difficult!) , very small rooms with no drawers and no space to open the luggage, bad breakfast. You have to call the lobby to turn on/off the aircondition system. Overall definitely not a 4 star and very dissapointed!!

Very nice hotel.Posted May 6, 2014
A very good hotel. You get your money value!!! Good service, clean comfortable quiet rooms and nice bath. The only problem is that it's not right in the centre of the tourist area, but if you don't mind 20 minutes walk or 10€ taxi, it's recommended. Good to know: the hotel charge 6€ per day for city tax.

Pretty good hotel for the pricePosted Apr 21, 2014 on Hotels.com
There were a few things that were good. They were undergoing maintenance when we went so ceiling were being painted. The common bathroom really smelled bad though. The room though was quite nice. We were able to leave our stuff at the front desk since our room wasn't ready but all in all a great location. We were able to walk to the Collesium which was quite nice. Beds were pretty comfortable. Would recommend this place :)

Better than nice hotel. Surprising good location .Posted Apr 19, 2014
Pros: Just better than good hotel.
Cons: More pillows
Location: You can find everything you need in a ten minute walk.
Walked all over Rome for a quick 6 hours. One astonishing site after another. A complete overload of architecture , art, sculpture , people and marble. Staff suggested a great small restaurant just around the corner at reasonable prices. Buoni Amichi has great food and that's saying something after 25 days on a cruise.

Great location but needs workPosted Apr 14, 2014 on Hotels.com
This hotel is ok for Europe (terrible by US/Canadian standards) but is in desperate need of some maintenance. My bathtub leaked and the bed though large was extremely uncomfortable. That said the location is amazing with easy walking to the colosseum and nearby metro stations, and there were signs of some maintenance work being done while I was there. I wouldn't recommend this hotel but I may give it another chance in the future once they have had some time to fix it up. The staff was kind a courteous on the breakfast was very good.
