The hotel staff was very nice and helpful when asked. Make sure and ask about travel to and from Rome. Especially before your stay. I had car but meet people that flew in and had no idea how to reach the hotel, it ended up costing them way too much to get there. The hotel is a little out of the way but the area is quiet and crime free. It is an easy comute to the train station and for 4 euro you can get a 24 hr ticket to ride trains, metro and bus all through Rome. Very affordable. The train ride is approx. 30 minutes but nice. The resturant in the hotel was closed during our stay and we could not find a good place to eat in the area. Suggest eating in Rome before you head back. Little grocery store in front of the bus stop to the train station. Check hrs of opertation. They carry anything you may want to munch on in your room, including wine and beer.
Check the bus schedule to and from train station. If not, you could get stuck, on the way back, at the train station for a couple of hrs. waiting to get to the hotel.
The rooms were comprable to European hotels and differ in size depending on what room you are assigned. Breakfast was good and a great way to start the day. We had no hot food because the kitchen was down but plenty of pasteries, breads and cold cuts.
Internet service was free but only in the lobby, the staff is helpful in getting you on and made it comfortable for us.
