Lovely centrally-located Rome hotel
Posted Nov 22, 2016
Hotel is true to its photos - the staff are excellent and well-mannered. Stayed in a corner suite overlooking a pleasant garden and small orange grove. Very easy to get to from the airport if you take the SIT €6 bus to Termini station and then walk around 7 minutes to hotel(Google map it). Airport transfer was provided for €45 cash (The manager, Valeria, connects with you in advance to make arrangements.) There's a small street market on via montebello weekly and 2 groceries within 5 minute walking distance ( Conad city & Pam local). Carrefour express are all around as well (cheap and hearty sandwiches and salads are good at the French grocery- try the salmon&egg on Multigrain bread). If you are interested in attending a church service, famous basilica Santa Maria Maggiore is a 13- min walk from hotel. Hotel is also able to provide Hop on hop off bus tickets which is convenient since local transport is very crowded. Although vatican city was only a 15-min train ride away. Rooms are cleaned well everyday and are well insulated. Good WiFi in rooms, except slow when network was used by all guests. TV in room has Italian and English channels for news and movies. Daily breakfast was alright - bread, tea & coffee options, yogurt, juice, fresh fruit, nuts, cookies, croissants etc. Look for the "Ascenseur sign" when you arrive - that means elevator. It's tiny, but works well. The room was very spacious considering European standards and would gladly recommend this hotel.
