This hotel is a classic Italian family owned hotel. The staff was warm, friendly, and very eager to help. The owner hosts a wine and tasting on Monday and Friday night. Excellent way to get to know other guests in the hotel. I spend eight nights there and everyone was just perfect. The location is close to Termini station and close to hop on hop off location and also at a subway stop. The hotel is in the center of a square. There is a park across the street which is a bit rundown but that does not detract from the stay at the hotel. During the day, the square accumulates some debris. But when you leave in the morning, it is immaculate. There are restaurants nearby and I can't think of one thing that I would want to change about my stay. The linens are great. The bed was comfortable. I requested a softer pillow in it was on my bed by the time I got upstairs. The lifts were adequate and work efficiently. I was there during the low season. It was wonderful to see Rome without crowds of tourists. The breakfast in the hotel was adequate and the service there was great. Fresh squeezed orange juice and cappuccino were available upon request.

The hotel is about a five minute walk from the Roma Termini train station which is very convenient. Once inside, you enter a modern and well-decorated lobby and the staff is extremely friendly. All of them spoke English too so that was certainly very accommodating to our party. My room was kept clean and was very comfortable but it was the smallest hotel room I've stayed in my entire life. You walk in the door and there is literally room for a table, the bed (full size I believe!), and a night stand. There is an open door to the bathroom with a nice shower, sink, and toilet. I reiterate that everything was kept clean and nice. They had a buffet breakfast that is included with the room that was decent for me but probably good for most. I'm used to "American" buffets and this was more "Continental" but nonetheless nice to have. Lastly, they make you pay the room taxes in Euros when you check out. You can pay all of your tab on a credit card but taxes must be paid in Euros; I found this to be strange and inconvenient but not a deal breaker.
Overall, if you are traveling and need a room just for one, or a couple that doesn't mind a quaint sleeping quarters, it is a great place to stay. It is easy to get to and has plenty of nice restaurants around it. By the way, it is a 20 minute walk from the Coliseum.

I picked the perfect spot for a first time traveller to Rome who loves walking cities. I wanted a place off slightly away from the main tourist drag but close enough to walk to everything. Where I could eat well at places that are modestly priced by American standards, but was real food made for residential locals. And was charming, if not spectacular. Of course in Rome everything is spectacular. But, this little place is lovely because its owners are fantastic, the location unbeatable, and the views to haunt you for a long time. My room's windows opened onto the Santa Maria Maggiore. Every meal eaten in small family enterprises were enjoyable, unpretentious fare. I travel alone, so cant comment on fine eating places. Franscesco, the Proprietor's son is patient and most helpful. Each radiating road around the Church of Santa Maria Maggiore is dramatic, leads to key historic sites, and is Pope Francis's favorite basilica. And one of the most wondrous staircases I have seen, designed by Bernini for the Pope, is inside the Santa Maria Maggiore.

A nice little hotel. The staff was very nice and helpful. The housekeeping changed the bed spread- literally a different style/color of comforter every 2-3 days. Fresh towels. Room was small, to European standards, but well kept. Shower was hot. Make sure you don't get a room near the street if you are a light sleeper. The cars, sirens, trains, and trams can be heard if you are. I didn't mind so much. Free wifi throughout hotel, including the room. 6 Euro, per a Person, per a day (up to ten days) charge by the country that must be paid in cash at the end of your stay.
An insider trip for Rome, and all travelling. When you have free wifi at the hotel, use "Yelp" app.. to bookmark all your favorite places. Then when you are out and about without WIFI- open the app and go to bookmarked items- the GPS still works and you will be a "blue" ball on the screen. This will help you get around some and find things out in Italy!

I have just come back from a 3 night stay in Rome and the whole trip was amazing.
I contacted the hotel before i left to tell them it was my husbands birhtday and when we arrived they had up graded our room. Apart from being on the small side and very hot we found the room very comfortable. The shower was very small and a few things in the bathroom needed a bit of TLC but apart from that is was great.
The hotel staff could not do enough for you. They were very helpful and would always give you ideas of where to go.
The breakfast was great and lots to eat with both hot and cold food. The staff again were very helpful.
The hotel is about a 30 minute walk to the Centre and 2 minute walk from the metro.I would highly recommed this hotel to anyone staying for a short break.
One thing they did say was to get a ticket for the Vatican on line. You dont need to, if you go off peak you walk straight in and it was cheaper than what we paid. Also use the metro as it is the cheapest way to get around. You buy your tickets from the sweet and tobacco shops for all the transport over there, dont buy off the street seller and the taxi's do over charge.
Overall loved it.

It's a nice hotel but don't expect 4 star it is more akin to 3 star.
On our first night we were given an apartment but it's in a separate building to the hotel. No reception, and you have to walk through stairs and corridors shared by non hotel residents. Felt quite isolated/unsafe especially as it was our first night in a different city. Luckily after complaining, we were moved the next day to a room in the main hotel building this was so much better.
Hotel is about 10 minute walk from termini station and a lot of bus stops, supermarkets, restaurants and cafes are close by.

Our stay was very pleasant, however the location was not the most desirable. If you are a woman traveling alone, I would think twice about it, unless you know karate. The staff were fantastic, very accommodating and the breakfast just what you need to get you going. Clean
