"Perfect for a tight schedule/near Termini station"
Some things about this hotel are excellent: location steps from the Termini central train station, grandeur of the lobby, friendly staff, ample self-serve breakfast starting at 6:30am with a variety of cereals, pastries, meats, juices, teas, and every type of coffee including cappuccino. Some things about this hotel are not as excellent: aging rooms, some random bits of dust, service is not that prompt, we had a freezer that was badly in need of defrosting. Also, it depends which room you get whether you are satisfied with the size of the room or type of bed. While our room was spacious with a king sized bed, large enough for me and my husband to share with our small daughter, my parents' room was not as nice. Although we booked two of the same type of room, my parents' room had only two twins. On top of that, we had requested an extra cot for that room, to accommodate my sister, which the hotel had guaranteed would be available when we called and emailed ahead of time. However, the cot was not ready which delayed our check-in. After all that, when we finally went up to the room, there still was no cot! Also, after requesting an extra towel for my room it never arrived (even though we were upfront about having my daughter as an extra, we only had two sets of towels). We had to ask the maid staff the next morning. If you get a good rate (we received a discount on Orbitz since we had already booked our flight there, so we paid about $80 a night), and if you don't mind a few things that aren't perfect, it's a great place to stay. Since it's literally steps from the Termini central train station, it's the perfect place to stay if you are arriving by train and need to depart by air and have an early morning flight. Other reasons to stay here: It is also about a 15-minute walk from the Colosseum, Trajan's Market, and the Roman forum/Palatine hill. From the train station, you can get either public buses or metro to anywhere else in the city, making it really convenient. You can also get the Roma Bus tourist hop-on/hop-off bus close by, and they sell the tickets at the hotel. Finally, there is a restaurant (pricey, with okay menu) but even better there is a rooftop terrace which is perfect for a meal/dessert in summertime, from which you can see beautiful views of the city at sunset and after dark. I've stayed here twice. I might not stay here without a discounted rate, but I would stay again primarily for the convenience. If you have a lot of luggage and are only in Rome for a day or two but still want to do some sight seeing, and have an early morning flight, this is your hotel.
"Old Hotel but Good Location"
The hotel is kind of old, however, the location is great. It is only 2 blocks away from Roma Termini and have access to both subway lines. Although the hotel is old, it is somehow clean. The air conditioning was not working well and it was too hot in the room.
The staff wonderful they help me plan my whole vacation there a train station and bus and cab station near by free breakfast lots to choose from they also have roof top restaurants with nice view of the city they also have tour company one block from the hotel .the hotel was well decorated I will recommend this hotel to family and friends
"Your Table is Waiting"
Located a block from Rome's main train station we had a small bit of time to explore and we like classic hotels demonstrating the elegance of Rome over decades. Stumbled into the hotel because it looked and is elegant. Asked for a place to dine and the response was certainly your table is waiting. So 14 stores up to the roof garden with full and impeccable service. The view is fantastic, the food reflected first class old world charm. So if downtown a great place to pop over to see the City and have an elegant 4 star experience.
This hotel was our best choice ever. The location is perfect, the art deco style bulilding is wonderful. We've got a suite on the top with an own balcony. It was an incredible view to the entire city with sunset... Everything was luxury, perfect clean, pro staff. The restaurant on the top is unforgettable...
