For what we paid Welcome house was superb. The room was clean and comfortable - if basic - and the staff were friendly, happily helping us with maps, directions and advice on local attractions. The location was ideal, close enough to the termini to make transport to and from the airport very easy, but still within easy walking distance of all the things we wanted to see in Rome. The "continental breakfast" was a little underwhelming (slightly dry rolls and sweet croissants were hung on the bedroom door, with coffee and juice provided at reception), but was adequate to start the day on. The only real issues with the hotel were the road noise (nothing extreme, but enough to keep a light sleeper awake) and the water. On the second day of our stay there was no water in the morning except a small drizzle from the tap, making showering impossible, and on the third day there was only ice cold water. Overall, as a young couple travelling on a low budget, the hotel was pretty good. If you're looking for luxury, or are aiming to spend most of your holiday in the hotel, this may not be the place for you, but as somewhere to crash between seeing the sights it's perfect.
