Comfy bed...but bring your earplugs and duster.Posted May 11, 2014
Pros: Felt like a local as inside an old apartment block.
Location: Far from center and transport, but close to a big park and supermarkets around to buy snacks, remember to clean the fridge of curly black hairs first!
We booked this hotel as is seemed a reasonable price for Rome and the looked clean and modern. We wished we had booked elsewhere. Our room had a lovely view on a nice quiet street, and the bed was comfy. That is where the positives end. The room was dirty, dust balls rolling around on the floor, curly black hairs not only in the bathroom, but in the FRIDGE and general disrepair to the all the furniture. As the room was just off reception, we could hear everything that happened in the area, the noise didn't stop until 2am if you were lucky, you then have 4 hours quiet until it starts up again at 6am when they start preparing breakfast. Noise we heard after 12am included: Football on the telly with staff shouting along to it, arguments between staff, printing documents on the loudest printer in the world, and then shredding said documents, moving heavy furniture around, mobile phones, music, clanging in the kitchen.....this list goes on. As well as all these negatives, it is far from public transport and so we got blisters from walking so much!! They provide a small breakfast, and deliver it to your room at a prearranged time - or in our case, one hour after we had requested it. If it was run better and staff could be quiet it would be an ok hotel, but its not so pick another hotel closer to the center. As we discovered, when in Rome, don't skip on the cost!

Excellent hotel, OK locationPosted May 4, 2014
Pros: Clean, comfortable, great breakfast.
Location: Location is fine (safe etc) but not central Rome. Don't miss the little hole-in-the-wall pizza place around the corner selling mini pizza - INCREDIBLE
The hotel itself is excellent. Clean, comfortable, safe and secure, breakfast is really yum (and very generous) and staff are friendly and helpful. The location is OK, a bit out of the way from the central city, but fine for the budget traveller if you're prepared to walk or navigate Rome's terrible bus system. We weren't fussed but you do need to allow extra time to get to the main tourist attractions. It's about a 15-20 min walk from Termini or a short cab fare.

Good value for moneyPosted Apr 30, 2014
Pros: Good value for money.
Cons: Eggs in the breakfast would be great.
Location: Close restaurants and shops around the corner. The best gelato place I tried in Rome was there, and very cheap.
Although it may be a shock at arrival as the hotel is inside a building which also has other apartments, once you get to the room, you change your mind. The room was great, modern, clean and comfortable. Breakfast is brought every morning to the room at the time you want it. This is very convenient! Around the corner from the hotel, there are bus routes 80 and 80B which take you in 15 minutes to the city center.

Average HotelPosted Apr 14, 2014
Cons: The hotel staff should regulate their cleanliness overall. During the stay, the room was never cleaned.
Location: Restaurants, interest points, and bus stops.
It has a great location, next to all interest points. Great signal with Wi-Fi. The staff was polite and the breakfast was great.

Nice&SimplePosted Apr 4, 2014
Pros: The atmosphere was relaxed and the people working there were able to give information about buses and how to move around quite efficiently.
Cons: Perhaps the staff could stick with the time of breakfast ordered by guests.
Location: The best thing about the location was that the restaurants were much cheaper than in town and the food as delicious if not better!
Upon our arrival at the hotel we were greeted by a friendly receptionist. Once logged, we were placed in a room immediately next to the reception area. There wasn't any information leaflets about the time of breakfast or general organisation of the hotel. However, the staff readily answered all our queries so this wasn't a problem. Despite us booking a twin room we were given one with a double bed. Again, this didn't bother us as the bed was comfortable and the room clean. Bizarrely, there wasn't any type of wardrobe there and only one chair and a stool. It was a bit difficult, therefore, to keep our clothes in order. The bathroom was clean and a hair dryer provided. The hotel does not have any type of dining area and the breakfast was served in the room. While it was nice to have it in bed, it was rather repetitive. The coffee was very small and there was dry bred served sometimes in abundance, other times in scarcity. The only reservation we had about the brekky was that in spite of us ordering it for specific time, it always seemed to arrive too early - the knock on the door waking us abruptly and unexpectedly. Nevertheless, the people working there were helpful and polite. We were offered a different room the following day, this time with twin beds, so I guess the staff did their best to accommodate us.

STAY AWAYPosted Mar 1, 2014 on Hotels.com
If you want to enjoy your stay in Rome, avoid this hotel. The first booking was done for this hotel and when I checked in they redirect me to another hotel they have. The location is great, but you also need some confort and conditions in your room.

Hotel was nice and clean and simple. More then fine to sleep and wash etc . About 40 min walk to coloseum and an hour 10 to Vatican City We walked everywhere and it was fine. Local food venues are cheaper then the city centre an very nice. Breakfast was poor but fridge in room and shop round the corner

Do as the Romans doPosted Jan 8, 2014
Pros: We liked the sense of "neighborhood" that comes from this location.
Cons: The breakfast, while good and plentiful, could have used a piece of fruit or some time of meat. Yogurt was the only protein; the rest was high carb.
Location: The Villa Borghese was a 10- minute walk, and the Metro was about a mile away, putting all the famous attractions within easy access.
With this hotel located on floors 3-5 of a residential building, we got a sense of how the locals really live, an experience most tourists do not get. The staff was very responsive to requests, and nearly all spoke very good English. Breakfast was brought up on a tray every morning at the time of our choosing. The rooms were clean, and we felt fortunate that the rooms included a private bath. We would definitely stay at this hotel again.

Went to Rome for my honeymoonPosted Jan 3, 2014
Pros: Breakfast, very coozy room, somewhat central
Cons: Internet in room was poor signal,
Location: bout mile to the subway, 20 min walk to the tourist area in Rome
I wanted to stay in a Rome style Hotel, wasnt looking for a brand name hotel and was going for 7 days so looking for good deal. The MF Hotel was perfect. The breakfast in bed every morning was great. Crossant, cappicino, bread, crackers and the best tangrine juice every had. The shower was a little small but I figured it would be, The room was very roomy and not that far from everything you want to see in Rome. We made the mistake and tried to walk everything but found out we were little less then a mile from the subway, so got a pass and used that. Also taxes for the 6 days was only 24 euros i think Would highly recommened this place
