Wonderful place, a bit far from downtown
Posted Nov 3, 2014
Except for the location, everything about this room was fantastic. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, and were willing to do extra things like printing documents and putting our breakfast in our room for the last day when we had to leave early. Breakfast was simple, with pre-packaged pastries, but fresh fruit and tasty coffee. Access was easy and the other guests were very quiet.
The only downside was the location. It's about a 15 minute, incredibly crowded tram ride from Termini station, so it took a while just to get to the metro. It made it difficult to return to the room if you needed a rest during the day or forgot something.
Also, we stayed in the "Pink Room" which had a window facing an interior courtyard, rather than the street. This was probably a bit quieter, but traffic was still pretty loud, especially while the tram was still operating. This is likely a problem anywhere in Rome, but some thicker, more insulated windows might be enough to quiet the noise down.
In general, if you don't mind being a bit far from the exciting parts of town, this is a comfortable, great value place full of super friendly staff.
