Nice hotel near train station

4 out of 5
by from Toronto
Posted Jul 10, 2016
Pros: Comfortable, quiet, and good breakfast.
Location: Very close to the train station. A nice park with a ruin of a Roman fountain that is three stories tall is just down the street.
We had twin beds which I prefer for better sleeping. There was a small bathtub - the only one on our travels. The breakfast was had lots of variety and was very good.

Hotel is close To Everything

Posted May 5, 2016
Pros: Close to what is needed to be seen.
Cons: Rooms could be upgraded
Location: Almost anything desired in Rome.
The hotel is OK for people like my wife and I who are looking for a place to stay but do not spend much time in their room. We only look for places close to transportation and prefer walking to see as many sites as possible. This hotel is close to some really great restaurants and the buses are within a block or so if needed. Do not go to this hotel if you have any type of handicap as it is not set up for people with any problems.

Pros: Clean, good location, cheap price (low season).
Cons: Heating in general, mainly in the breakfast room.
Location: Very central, access to all points of interest just by walking.
OK for a 3 star hotel and the price asked for, but lacked of heating, mainly in the dining room at breakfast time. Will be much improved when the repairs are terminated.

It was a decent hotel, but they were renovating it while we were staying there which made it look dirty and dusty.

Never again

Not only it was a shabby building that screams for the renovations, situated in filthy neighborhood, it also didn't have air conditioning in the room. Even though the website says that the rooms have air conditioning and climate control, the man behind the counter said it is only available in the summer. On October 6, when we checked in, there was +28℃ in Rome. It was hot, humid and stuffy... Nevertheless, the reception person refused to give me the remote control for the conditioner so I can turn it on. He said it was cold enough outside so I can sleep without any air conditioner. He was arrogant and defying. Definitely he didn't care about customer service at all. I can't see why he is the one that should decide for me what is hot and what is not. Besides, I don't understand why the site doesn't specify that the air conditioner is only provided for the summer. It sounds like cheating to me. Expedia should have a better control over the hotels it advertises. As I think, the cases like this one, undermine its reputation and credibility.

Run for your life!!!!! DO NOT BOOK TO STAY HERE

1 out of 5
by from London
Posted Sep 26, 2015
Where do I start! Me and my sister arrived early into the actual first day of our trip & found the entrance chained & locked with a Dosey incompitant night desk clerk fast asleep on the front desk area. The unwelcoming staff member ( male) felt it was his place to reprimand us for the fact our flight had arrived late thus our late checking. This person was compleatly incompitant and tried to con us into paying over and above the price for our booking/room. With the downstairs area appearance not up to much our room was 1000% worse!!! To our horror we found we were put into a poky dark & dusty twin bed room, calling it 'Shabby Not Chic' would be a compliment so let me just say is was a run down, 70s hot mess! The bathroom stunk, whilst the sink was half way detached from it's stand, with the actual toilet needing 3-4 attempts before actually flushing. The mouldy and grime coated shower stall was disgusting to look at much less use day to day. Weak Internet,no air con ( considering it was temperatures in Rome was high), no working Plug sucket ( only the main light switch worked), a hole in one of the windows and the free breakfast was stale, basic, and unappetising to say the least! On our first night there was no chance to sleep as a physco woman was screaming the hotel down all night long threatening to burn the place down??? We mentioned the incident to the day shift person at the desk in the morning they just shrugged it off. Not a 3 star hotel PLEASE DO NOT BOOK TO STAY!!

Convenient location to Termini

4 out of 5
by from Indianapolis
Posted Jun 28, 2015
We stayed just one night as we were passing through Rome and made reservations through Expedia online and last minute. When we arrived at the hotel, the front desk staff questioned my daughter's age (16) saying she is considered an adult and I had made a reservation for 2 adults and 1 child. I told them that the Expedia reservation form stated children were <17. In the end, they didn't charge for an additional adult. Elevator didn't work so had to carry luggage up to our room. But the hotel was convenient and the shower was the best one I had in Italy.

Pros: Location good.
Cons: Needs a full make over. Shabby chic at its best.
Location: Very close to station. Bus stops handy.
Very shabby, some of staff distant. Hot water took forever, sink not attached to wall(very dodgy). Thick dust on ledges, manager very pleasant. Cheap but not too cheerful !!!!
