Vatican & Rugby

Posted Feb 13, 2017
Pros: Location - breakfast and staff
Cons: Fix the shower head in Room 208
Location: The Vatican - 3 streets away. Good bus and tram links. All the major sites are within walking distance and you can pick up a gelato on the way!!
Excellent location for The Vatican. Used the hotel as a base for the rugby 6 nations. The number 32 bus took us straight to the stadium. All the major sites were in walking distance but if not - you are on the major road hubs into central Rome - buses and trams. Upgraded to a 3 bed room which gave us more space and I would recommend. No fry-up breakfast but the full continental options were aplenty with a good choice and fresh, rolls, croissants and fruit. Good coffee aswell. My only negative is that the shower head would not stay in the holder when having a shower.

Nice hotel good location

Posted Feb 13, 2017
Beds and pillows are hard but a good place to stay staff and locals are very friendly and helpful. The Vatican and other sights are within walking distance . The breakfast is ok very basic but fills you up . There is a shuttle bus that brings you from the airport that leaves you at a stop 5 mins walk from the hotel it's €11 return a lot cheaper than a taxi . .

Budget stay would be over priced.

Posted Feb 11, 2017
Pros: Staff were very good as in polite, helpful and friendly.
Cons: Furniture including bedding to start with, with age it needs a major makeover.
Location: If you like walking the venue is fine, 10 minutes walk to St Angelo Castle and then over the bridge and you are on the lines for hop on hop off buses.
Very run down with the walls between rooms paper thin, when you hear your neighbours lift the toilet lid you know the depth of the cavities. I sat on a bench at the Sistine Chapel.........it had more give and comfort than the bed we were given, very old, hard and springs shooting through. The breakfast was the highlight, good staff and plenty of variety in the food.

it's located at a good location

Posted Jan 11, 2017
It was okay (not great not bad) the staff is extremely nice. Small rooms. The best part of the hotel is the location. The hotel is near the Vatican, restaurants, mini markets, tourist shops, and the metro line. You basically have everything at your disposal. (You really don't need the taxi)

Cheap and cheerful.

Ideal location for a short stay. Close enough to walk to any of the main tourist areas. Rooms are small but adequate

Distance-wise OK but....

Posted Dec 31, 2016
The distance of the hotel to top rome attractions is perfect except for its facilities. The room smells, i think it was their sewer. It comes from the bathroom. The room is really old. Although their free breakfast is great.
