I wasn't kidding with the title I wrote for my review. This place is more like home. There is no reception, no flashy sign, no electronic rome keys. It's literally like you stay with Patty during your visit in Rome. It might not be for everyone, but for me it's perfect. I have travelled around the world and I always tried to stay with friends for the visits even for business trip because for me, it's always great not feeling like a stranger in a foreign place.
The hotel is a converted old apartment in Rome. The room is basic but clean. The shared bathroom and toilet are clean, more than I expected to be honest. Patty is a great host. She's really helpful. She will give you the keys to room and building so you can come and go whenever you want. The location is unbeatable. Close to the metro and bus stations. 5-10 minutes walk to Trevi and Spanish Step. There a lot of cafes and bakery store around the area.
Overall, I'm glad I decided to stay there. And I will be back next time I visit Rome. Not that because I can't afford paying more somewhere else. But I just want to stay at 'home' again.
