Nice Trendy Hotel, Poor Location
Posted Jun 27, 2015 on Hotels
This hotel has a clean and modern feel. The staff are very friendly and recommended a fabulous local restaurant around the corner (Olio d' Olivio). Our room was clean and comfortable, however the shutter door to the balcony was stuck halfway down the doorframe, so we had to duck under to go out to the balcony (The staff would have fixed this issue if we stayed longer). The cotton shower curtain in the bathroom did very little, so there was water all over the floor after each shower. The air conditioning is powered by your room key, so after a very hot 12hr day walking Rome, our room was very hot. The breakfast was basic with cereal, toast, yogurt, spreads, some deli meats, slices of cheese and sweet breads. The hotel in and of itself was pretty nice, but this hotel's biggest drawback was it's location, especially because we were only there 2 nights. It is quite far from Rome's main attractions. You have to walk a quarter mile to the nearest bus stop and then take the bus 9 stops to the Metro station to go to the attraction of your choice. Getting back at night is challenging due to most Metro stations closing around 9-10pm and buses running less frequently.
