We enjoyed our stay and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel had been recommended by another couple in our group. We would stay there again.Comment of B. Cathy , Canada the 2015-01-24
"4 days in Rome - good location, clean, safe. Definitely would return!"
This is my 3rd time in Rome, and while I've stayed in the downtown core before, I wanted something less touristy. This hotel is in a great location! In a more residential area, so you can feel like a local. 5 minute walk to LEPANTO subway station, busy Via Cola di Rienzo, and across the river, so you can walk to the downtown core in 15 minutes. Since I love to walk, this hotel was ideal. I never took a cab. You can even walk to the Vatican. Lots of fantastic restaurants, cafes and bars nearby. Again 0 around that Di Rienzo street. Hotel - friendly staff, well equipped rooms, very CLEAN (so important) and located on a lovely street. I stayed here with my girlfriend in May, and I hope to return with my husband soon. Safe area. As two young women walking around at night, I never worried. Great service! Keep it up!
We stayed here in April of 2016 during our Italian holiday and it was terrible! First and foremost, there was no air conditioning until May. Claiming to be an "American" hotel is not accurate. I understand that the Italians don't really like air conditioning but being a 4-star hotel, they should have been more accomodating. We couldn't sleep well because we felt really hot. The only solution they gave me was to open the window. I am very much allergic to pollen so given that the hotel is surrounded with trees, keeping the window open overnight turned out to be a nightmare as my allergy symptoms were aggravated. For the 2nd night, we were moved to a hotel with a balcony, but still, the balcony door had to be open. We wanted to eat here on a Sunday night and was told the chef is on his day off. We can order food but it would be "frozen" food. They guy meant that the microwave will be our chef that night. Eat somewhere else. The food was not good!
"Very pleasant hotel"
This is a nice, small hotel. The staff are helpful, the rooms are clean and comfortable, the beds are firm without being uncomfortable, the breakfast is very nice, the location is good - a short cab-ride or a long walk to many of the places you would want to visit, but far enough from the mainstream to really relax and enjoy Rome. Many restaurants and cafes nearby. Right on the Tiber river. There is a nice little bar in the lobby for a drink before dinner; it also serves dinner, although we did not sample its short menu.
"Beautiful hotel near the Vatican and the river"
We had a beautiful room at the end of the hall with a balcony overlooking the front of the building and the river. It was quite roomy and comfortable. The staff was very accommodating. The daily breakfast was sufficient and had a good variety to offer. We did eat at the restaurant both evenings we stayed here and the food was quite good. The tiramasu was the best I have tasted. The young man who waited on us was very pleasant and remembered things on our 2nd visit without having to ask. It was a walk to attractions and only a couple of blocks to catch the metro. We did find a light rail to take us to the center of town. This is Rome you have to walk to experience and explore.
"Did not enjoy this stay."
We had to stay in this hotel as ours overbooked. The room was tiny the decor was very dated and we didn't stay long enough to have the breakfast. I guess it's worth the money as it's cheaper and if you don't mind a small room. We had no balcony and our room over looked the motorway. We couldn't find much near it and were wandering around trying to find somewhere to eat for some time. Fine if you want a cheap budget stay and don't mind not being in the centre...
