    Location, location, location!

    We stayed at this hotel several years ago and the quality is lower now. The rooms are ok in terms of size and equipment but they need renovating or at least better cleaning. Walls next to bed were dirty and disgusting.

    Fabulous

    We were welcomed when we arrived by the owner and he was most helpful with all of our questions/needs; amount we should pay for a taxi from Stazione Termini to his hotel (we found out we had been overcharged so he made sure when we had to go back we were charge the correct price), exchanging money/banks, walking directions to the Spanish steps, Trevi Fountain, Pantheon. The hotel serves breakfast which worked out well for us and there is a small bar that we were able to have a drink at before heading out to dinner.

    We stayed there only one night so it is hard to say what we didn't like. The hotel served its purpose for us as we had just arrived after a long flight and since we were heading to Positano the following day we really just needed a conveniently located and economical hotel which this definitely was.

    Very helpful and friendly staff and a great location. Handy for walking to main sights and lots of good value and excellent restaurants in imediate vicinity. Situated in very nice quiet but characterful area. We had room with direct access to terrace - which gave nice city roof top views - and all guests had access to terrace area which was a nice refuge. We could see the coloseum from our window ! Bed clean and comfy.

    We knew the rooms would be small - but actually they are not impossibly small at all. The shower was small and water pressure not great ! Breakfast fine - but not memorable. All small issues really and did not detract at all from lovely stay.

    Good value for what you get ! Good advices and good position as it's central

    The room was really small and it's really noisy : at 7 am u can heard the shower, the housekipping talking, the doors opening and closing .... So ok for a short stay not more

    Very good

    Det staff was very helpfull and kind. Det lokacion was good. The hotel had the right dimension.

    The lightning in the rooms were very bad. Only glow lamps - if any - at the bed. It was impossible to read in bed. We drew the attention about this to the staff before leaving, so we hope the hotel will make til lightning better, before we return.

    The central location The kindness of the staff

    The door was very difficult to lock and unlock. It usuallly took us 5 minutes to be able to enter and exit the room. One evening we remained locked inside the room and had to call reception for help (not very good in case of emergency situations...)

    Very central for all the sites Very clean Excellent staff

    More light in the dining room, suggest you take down the curtains. Some noise in the early hours of the morning, guests coming back late. Tea and coffee facilities in the room.

    Very nice and helpfull stuff. Decent and safe location. We were given a room with terrace, the room was really big and comfy. I expected a smaller room.

    Elevetor goes upto 4th floor. If you stay at 5th floor it may be hard to carry your luggage. Water pressure is quite low for 5th floor. You need to wait 5 minutes for hot water. WiFi was not strong at 5th floor. In summary all problems were for 5th floor. If you stay any where below 5, hotel is very nice. I recommend this hotel to everyone.

    Superb

    Excellent, central location near Coliseum, Trevi Fountain and 5 min taxi to Termini station. Safe area at night with several good restaurants. Not overly touristy area. Quiet at night but close to nightlife with 15 min walk. Beautiful street views and architechture. Clean comfortable hotel, air conditioning worked great, simple breakfast, nice, helpful front desk staff. Nice little outdoor terrace for guests. We stayed at the beginning and end of our trip ( same room)..... Very nice to " come home" to familiar setting for the last few days.

    Very old part of Rome so space at a premium. Tiny shower- a bit tight for big people.

    Good

    Hotel staff were extremely nice and helpful. Location was quite handy as well with a 10 mins walk from the Colosseum and various bus stops nearby.

    While we were staying in the hotel, renovations were taking place so we woke both Saturday and Sunday morning at 8am for the sound of drilling and hammering. The shower is small which was ok for us but ifyou are bigger you might want to double check it. There were minor things missing that made it a bit uncomfortable, like a soap holder in the shower, which meant we had to keep our soaps outside of the shower cabin and keep the doors open while showering. The breakfast is your typical budget brekky with sweet cordial like juices etc. but all in all it was a good budget hotel that in normal standards I would rate as 2 stars.
