Nice hotel accessible to a cool neighborhood
Posted Sep 8, 2016
I have never stayed in a hotel that is near Trastavere and Testaccio before. It is a maximum of 20 minutes walking distance to anything in either district so being able to check out the restaurants and markets in this neighborhood is great. Also, the bus stop is right in front of the hotel so if I don't feel like walking, it's easy to get around. Everything about the hotel is really nice. The only exception is the door system. The hotel room doors are locked and opened with the usual NFC keycards. But when you tap them near your door, a loud buzz sounds and that indicates you can open your room door. The problem is that if there are lots of people returning to the hotel, you can usually hear these little buzzes in your room. So on a busy Sunday night at 2am, the buzzes can get annoying, particularly if you're jetlagged or has insomnia. They are not super loud inside the room but just loud enough to be audible above background noise.
