"Great value hotel, with excellent staff"
I stayed in a twin room with a friend for 3 nights, the room was clean, comfortable and well equipped. There is a telly, mini bar, hair dryer, but no tea making facility.The staff were soooo helpful and spoke excellent English (thank you). The breakfast was a amazing and plentiful. This hotel is located about 2-3 miles from the city centre but there is a good bus service (number 81) straight to the colosseum and Vatican City with a stop right outside the hotel. Nearby is a good street with bars and restaurants plus some small supermarkets. A great base to explore Roma.
Me and my other half went for a relaxing city break for 4 days. The hotel was nice and clean everyday, bed was made and the room was spotless. A downside was having to ask for more pillows as each guest only gets one. Another downside was the temperature control in the room didn't really work and we were left quite hot each evening. If you are British and like to watch TV in bed after a long day and evening, there aren't many English channels so we had o revert to watching things on our phone - they do have wifi in the room for free which is an added bonus. The safe in the room is also free which is a nice touch as many hotels we have visited you have to pay for this. Towels were clean and in good condition Bathroom was spotless everyday, hair dryer was very good and not like some of the small travel ones they offer in some hotels. Guests were left with shampoo, shower gel, soap tissues and a comb which I think was a nice touch - even though we brought our own toiletries. When asked at reception nothing was ever an issue and the staff were only happy to help. Travel tickets can be purchased from the hotel and they provide you with a neat map and how to get to some of the hot spots in Rome.
"Very happy to have stayed here"
Staff are really really friendly and helpful, Breakfasts keep you going till night time and the rooms are super clean. Its slightly far out from the centre but there are lots of buses to the hotel which make it really easy. Nice amenities to eat nearby which are not as touristy as the centre. Occasionally noisy as there is a courtyard but I think you'd get this anywhere in a city. Our room overlooked the courtyard rather than the street so we were fairly insuated
"Excellent Hotel with fantastic staff !!!"
Myself and my mother stayed here recently on a totally unforgettable holiday to Rome. This was our first visit to Rome and we were not disappointed by either the great city or our accommodation. This hotel is really good, and to say the staff were pleasant and helpful would be an understatement. They were always willing to advise guests (in multiple languages) about any requests they had. They would book transport/taxis/bus or rail tickets, advise on local restaurants and banking services. Organise tickets for excursions etc... The hotels own restaurant facilities for breakfast were great and the food was fantastic. There is also a lovely bar that guests can avail of. Quite often tea, coffee, juice etc.. would be freely available for use in the reception. At night (around 7pm), little diner stalls would set up on the street behind the hotel. The food there was great too and there was lots of variety of produce and drinks available. There was also a small super market where you could get your own produce. The rooms in the hotel were lovely and were kept immaculate by the cleaning staff (who never imposed). Two spacious lifts were available along with bright well lit stair cases. Our stay at the hotel completed our outstanding trip to this incredible city ! I would recommend staying here to anyone !
I've just returned from a 4 night stay here with my boyfriend and the hotel was great! Nice welcome when you enter from the reception staff and a speedy check in. They also give you excellent tips on how to get around, what buses to take etc. which was helpful as we wouldn't have known where to start! Room was nice and clean with nice decor. You're very close to a railway track but the hotel has two sets of double glazed windows which means that you can't hear the noise at all. The 81 bus stop is literally across the road from the hotel which takes you to all of the major tourist attractions; colosseum, trevi fountain, piazza novana, Vatican etc. and you can purchase tickets for the bus from the reception of the hotel on your way out in the morning. The hotel itself is a little way out from the very centre of Rome, but not impossible to walk. It took roughly 15 mins on the bus to get to the colosseum, about 40 mins to the Vatican, but we did walk to the colosseum in about 30 mins on the first day (shorter route when walking) which was pretty painless as you can look at the sights along the way! The hotel is also set within quite a 'local' area i.e. not many tourists at all and we was told upon arrival by our cab driver that the area was dodgy and we did notice some people hanging around but we had absolutely no problems at all. Perhaps don't walk on your own at night, that's all. All in all, a really good stay. Would recommend to those looking to visit Rome but not pay to stay right in the centre!
