Amazing Location, Excellent Service, Nice Rooms.Posted Dec 6, 2013
Pros: The rooms are good, comfy and have their own personal designs. Brilliant location and a short 20-30 minute walk to most of the popular sights.
Cons: The windows and wall insulation could be better to block out the noise from locals/tourists at 3am.
Location: Walking to the Royal Palace takes around 25 minutes and only 35 to the Colosseum, the lively Travestere area is right on the doorstep.
Me and my girlfriend spent a few nights in Naples then got the train to Rome for the rest of the week. The hotel was priced good and looked in a good location from google maps/reviews on trip adviser. Upon arrival we were greeted by a very friendly man who told us about our room, the free coffee machine, a map and directions for things to do near by/must sees of the local life. The area wasn't bad to walk around in the early hours after being out all evening/night, many of the bars are open until 1 or 2am. We strongly advise getting a taxi and making sure they know and take you to the hotel door! We were pushed out of the taxi by the driver somewhere nearby and ordered to pay the full price, after 20 minutes wandering around the streets we found the hotel again. The main attractions in the city are an easy walking distance e.g. Piazza Navona 25 mins, Colosseum 35 mins, Trevi Fountain 30 mins. It is nice coming off the main roads and simplest routes to discover the back streets with hidden buildings, statues and restaurants. The bus 23, which takes you to the Vatican and St.Pauls, is only a ten minute walk away and very cheap 1.50 euro. MAKE SURE TO GET YOUR TICKET TIME STAMPED WHEN YOU GET ON THE BUS OR YOU MAY RUN INTO TROUBLE WITH THE TRANSPORT OFFICERS ASKING FOR A 50+ EURO FINE FOR EACH TICKET UN-STAMPED! Overall it was an amazing trip! Thank you :D

Perfect location and Lovely roomPosted Sep 18, 2013 on Hotels.com
This was a fantastic place in the heart of the bustling and trendy Trastevere neighborhood of Rome. We walked to all the major landmarks of the city including the Vatican, Trevi Fountain, and Colosseum (All about 20 to 25 minutes walking). There are countless restaurants and cafes within 5 min walking and even more near the Camp del Fiori (10 min walking). Tomaso the owner of Hip Suites was incredibly helpful and spent a lot of time with us recommending places to go and things to do. All of the restaurants he recommended were wonderful. He was very knowledgeable. Its almost like a bed and breakfast, in that Tomaso is around all of the morning and on a limited basis in the afternoon, but he is very accessible by email or phone if you need anything. The room was very clean and nice with a white decor. The junior suite was spacious for a Rome hotel. We had more than enough room and very much enjoyed this place. Would highly recommend and stay here again.

Extremely noisy, inside and outsidePosted Jul 3, 2013 on Hotels.com
The hotel itself is fine and quite well located. But the noise from the street was awful and the rooms are not soundproofed to an efficient extent. It continued until 4am and there were even people passing out flyers about reducing the noise in the area. and then began again at 7am in the "reception area" where the staff decided to make calls. The walls are paper thin so we could hear everything clearly and loudly. It was ridiculous. This continued on a Saturday morning until 9am. Also, none of the staff I saw during the trip said hello or asked how things were going. Compared to other hotels, I felt I was just another credit card to run. I do not recommend it and I will not stay here again.

Great location and servicePosted Jun 30, 2013 on Hotels.com
Good value. Friendly service and helpful. Breakfast cafe has illy coffee and usual pastries, free machine coffee also available outside room. I booked this hotel because of the location and that was the best thing about this hotel, although you may need earplugs for sleeping because Trastevere is so vibrant, especially at night. Twin beds are small but comfortable. Great air-con but wi-fi was slow/weak.

Spotlessly clean, trendy room in fantastic locatioPosted May 15, 2013 on Hotels.com
A lovely clean room in an area that is very atmospheric - cobbled streets, lots of lovely restaurants to choose from, street entertainers and a lovely vibe. And easy to walk to all of the attractions of Rome. The room was big with high ceilings and all mod cons - wi-fi, laptop, fridge, safe, hairdryer. We'd definitely book again. My only citicisim is that breakfast is very basic - a pastry, orange juice and coffee!

Great locationPosted Apr 8, 2013 on Hotels.com
Lovely hotel in the heart of Trastevere! The staff are very friendly and spent time showing us recommendations on a map. Our room was comfortable and clean. My only criticisms would be that the pillows are a little lumpy and that it would have been nice to have some hooks in the room's entrance area to hang coats (especially if you're been caught out in the rain!). You have a choice of 2 cafes for breakfast - go for Baylon Cafe - much nicer food and atmosphere!

Interesting part of RomePosted Oct 25, 2012
Cons: Noise late at night
Location: Reminds me of the Village in NYC. Always alive and interesting.
The room is small and the shower very small. If you are sensitive to noise the area the hotel is located in does not stop in activity( that can be loud ) till past 2:00 am. Special thanks to Tomasso who helped us with airline confirmations and recs :)
