Not what we expcted, but adequete to our needs.

Posted Mar 2, 2014
Pros: It was close to Roma termini, TV was excellent, room clean, excellent housekeeping daily.
Cons: The layout of hotel so its not spread out in 2 buildings. Also improve breakfast arrangement&service so that it is more professional and comforotable.
Location: Roma termini is 5 mins walk, or 10 with suitcases. Close to hop on hop off bus tour bus stop!
Even though this is a budget hotel, the photos of the rooms and hotel were a bit of a deception. When we arrived we were escorted to a seperate building across the street, the room was very small and bathroom even smaller. The shower worked fine and was lovely and warm but because of such a small space the water ended up flooding out of the shower into the main room. When told the hotel staff they said that we should not stay in the shower for too long and that if we mess with any levers in the shower it could affect the mass of water or not. The breakfast was a bit of a laugh, we went into the building we initally checked in at and went up 2 flights of stairs to a room which looked like somebody's kitchen at home. We sat on stools and had a woman who was in her tracky bottoms and top warming up toast and making 1 toast each. A selection of crouisants was available but that literally was it. It felt a little uncomfortable because it was not what we expected or how the hotel had been portrayed. The room was clean, tidy and had housekeeping every morning. We always returned to a well cleaned room. We had a fridge which was lovely but towards the end of our stay water was starting to seep from the bottom of it. The TV worked fine and was modern. Overall it was an adequete room and hotel, a bit of a bizzare set up but just glad we did not spend a lot of time there. If you want it literally just to sleep in at night&freshen up then this is ideal, 5mins walk to Roma termini too.

Poor hotel

Posted Oct 5, 2013 on Hotels.com
I arrived at hotel at 5.00 pm after travelling all day - tired. Hotel reception insisted that I hadn't paid but I was sure that I had. They demanded the receipt which I didn't have. I had to pay again. When I had internet access, I showed manager my credit card statement where The Place in Rome had charged my credit card for the stay. They are still refusing to repay second charge. I am pursuing them through my bank. Pros: hotel room is as shown in photo on booking site. Room clean, staff friendly. CONS: Walls of room and ceiling so badly insulated that you could hear absolutely every sound from adjoining room, stairwell and room above. Sleep was hard to come by. Breakfast was poor. After this experience, I would never stay here or recommend this hotel to anyone.

Good Acommodation for Price and Location

Posted Aug 21, 2013 on Hotels.com
The exterior of the hotel Is is deceiving. You would not know that the rooms are nice , quite cheery and bright.The bathrooms are very nice and clean. The location is only a few minutes from the main train station and the neighbourhood has reasonably priced restaurants and souvenir shops. The price for Rome is reasonable and the manager was very helpful.

Location was very convenient as it's really close to the train station but it was difficult to find as there isn't any sign or anything of that sort. We used google maps on the phone to find it. Bathroom was clean and had just the right amount of space. A/C didn't work. Even after we asked James and he said he'd check it, it didn't work and nor did he come to check if it did. Beds didn't have the most comfortable mattresses but were doable for one night. Otherwise, it was all good. James and Roxanna were friendly and welcoming. James also carried our luggage upstairs. Breakfast included coffee/tea (lots of options), orange juice, and croissant. Overall, nice stay. Thanks.

Great Price, Decent Location

Posted May 10, 2013 on Hotels.com
A little difficult to find because the name is not listed in a big sign outside. You just need to trust your map and addresses. There's a call button to get in. This is not their fault, however, as there is some law where you need to have 10+ rooms to be able to have a big sign outside. Great price. Walking 15 minutes to the Trevi Fountain or Colloseum and then making your way around town is a great way to see everything and get good exercise.

Good value - clean and quiet as well.

Posted Apr 25, 2013
Pros: location and internet
Location: Great location to Termini - in and out very quickly.
Was able to check in late at night and then had an earlier check-out the following morning. I had a single room, very simple ... but it was clean, had a private bath, and was about a 5 minute walk to the Termini train station. Easy in and out and the staff was very accommodating and easy to work with. The internet was top-notch and was very easy to log onto. I would stay here again if I was again using Rome as a staging point for train and air transportation (I used both and the hotel was very convenient and inexpensive). My room opened to a inner-courtyard so it was very quiet during the night even though I was in the middle of large city.

very good for the money

Posted Dec 26, 2012 on Hotels.com
the room is small, but has everything needed, is clean and in good order. Ideal place for those who stay out touring for the whole day and need a comfortable and own place to sleep at night and then get ready in the morning.

Worst hotel experience ever

Posted Aug 3, 2012
Hotel staff is very bothering. Need you to provide details of when you will be leaving and when you will be coming back every day (Very annoying). Make unpleasant comments. The BIGGEST thing is that they can change your room with out informing you. You may find suddenly that your key do not work in your room anymore. This happened to me at midnight with NOWHERE TO GO. SO I WILL ADVISE YOU STRONGLY TO NOT GO FOR THIS HOTEL.

This hotel was awesome. The owner James, and his employee Roxana were veer friendly. The service they provided us went above and beyond our expectations. We would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Rome.
