    The stay was ok. The unexpected additional charge of 100 Euors for two nights for my 5 and 7 year old children was not. There was no mention of this in the advertising.

    I didn't like being charged extra for my children (5 and 7). It wasn't listed anywhere in the reservation area that there would be an extra charge. Failed to deliver extra pillows as I requested. Failed to bring extra towels as I requested. Overall experience was average to poor. Value-for-money not really there, but close to the metro and a quick walk to the Vatican.

    Stayed in the hotel with a friend of mine for 4 nights in April 2010. The hotel is located near the Vatican City, about 5 minutes' walk away, but quite far from the city centre area. It's about 6 or 7 stations stops away from the Termini. The hotel is located on the 2nd floor of an apartment. The room was reasonably spacious. Staff are very friendly and helpful..

    No breakfast in the hotel. A bit faraway from the heart of the city. The towls in our room were not changed daily. When I asked them, they said it depends on the state of the towl... Our room was right beside the reception, we can hear everything outside.

    Very nice location.If you are only interested in travelling the city and not spending time at the hotel, this is more than enough..

  • Family with children

    Location very near the Vatican, friendly staff, very clean room

    Very small room, Quad room is really a triple with an extra single bed crammed in, website says views of St. Peter's, but we had a view of an alley and a rooftop. Although we received fresh towels daily, there were no handtowels and no place to hang one in the bathroom. Alot further from the Metro stop than indicated. Hotel is on the 2nd floor of a shared building, elevator only accomodates 2 people at a time.

    The location is very good and local. Rooms are very small but super clean. We stayed there for Easter hollidays maybe that's why it was so expensive.

    Staff.

    Small. Surprised to have to pay for breakfast. No Internet in room. Again, surprised. Transfer from airport not arranged, as planned.

    The desk clerks were excellent - offering suggestions and making appointments to make out visit to Rome more successful.

    The reception staff were the best.very friendly and helpful.

    locationwise-excellent for touring the vatican area.

  • Group of friends

    Location was excellent. Close to the Vatican and all the major landmarks in Rome. Walked to every landmark and even back from the train station (a little far though). Good price if your on a budget; bare bones room. Most staff were very helpful and accommodating. Shuttle service from the airport and to the airport was very convenient.

    One of the receptionists/desk clerks was very rude, raised her voice and was accusatory when told that a shelf in the closet fell. She accused us of putting our luggage on the shelf several times despite the fact we told her no way we would have done that and then started to wag her finger at us as if we were kids and raised her voice. As someone who has been to Europe 3 times and to Asia several times as well as traveling all over the us and Canada, I have never been talked to like that by any hotel staff. We usually stay at the Marriott but the hotel in Rome during the week we stayed was totally booked.

    Good location (very close to The Vatican City, metro station and Piazza Cavour bus stations). Breakfast was ok (5 Euros per person/ day). Situated on a busy road with lots of shops. Very quiet room (view at the back). Friendly staff. Modern furniture in the room. It was our first holiday abroad wih our 2-year-old son and we were overall very pleased with the hotel.

    Very old elevator, sometimes out of order. Changed our sheets after we complained (very willingly though).

  • Group of friends
    7.8

    The location was great - right next to the Vatican with shops and restaurants nearby. We were able to walk to most of the sights we wanted to see. The rooms are very small so even though it as a quad it was very difficult to comfortably sleep 4 adults.

    The nightlife was in a different location so we had to walk far and take cabs. Also, the rooms were tiny.

  • Family with children

    it was very central and the hotel staff were more than lovely. it was near the Vatican and the rooms were very clean and safe.

    i really have nothing to complain about.

  • Family with children
    10.0

    The hotel location is perfect. Only 7 minutes from Vatican and 5 minutes from metro station. The staff were very friendly and helpfull. The room was small but very clean, modern and quiet. You can pay breakfest extra (5eur) and have the same buffet as in the 3 or 4 stars hotel. When I compare the 4 star hotel in Milano 1 year ago and 2 stars Florida hotel in Rome, Florida hotel is more better!!! We came at night and we had little problem with finding the hotel because it has not standard hotel doorway with large title above the door. The hotel is located on the street with many shops but the rooms are inside of the block of houses and have windows to the court. We were very satisfied.

  • Group of friends
    8.2

    Its location, the rooms and the friendly staff.

    The fact that there is only wi-fi in the lobby and not in each room.
