We were a family of three and looking for a convenient, clean, mid-range hotel for 4 nights. This hotel definitely met or exceeded our expectations.
The location is about a 5 minute walk from the Repubblica metro station (literally just up the street and around the corner) and about a 10 minute walk from Termini, maybe 15 minutes with heavy luggage in tow. Plenty of eating options within easy walking distance. (Be sure to try the Green Pistachio gelato place on Via Nazionale just SW of Via Firenze.)
Our room had a double bed plus a rollaway type bed. Bedding comfort level was fine for us. The room size was typical for Europe but slightly bigger than expected and the small balcony was pleasant to step out onto in the morning. Furnishings and decor were modern and new, sufficient electric outlets. In-room programmable safe was included. The in-room mini-fridge was much appreciated and we were able to stock up on some beverages and snacks that needed refrigeration. We had no issues with noise from neighboring rooms or the hallway.
The bathroom was fantastic and huge for this price point. The tub/shower and additional standalone shower were nice and had adequate hot water and good pressure. Daily housekeeping service was clean and thorough. Plenty of toiletries refreshed daily.
The hotel is sharp and modern looking throughout. It really shines with so many amenities and thoughtful touches, though. Wi-fi is included in each room. Several vending machines are located throughout, for soft drinks; snacks; toiletries (not just toothbrushes but a wide variety); coffee and hot drinks; and the best thing ever - a wine and beer vending machine (also sells plastic glasses and cups if you need them)!! Now that's something every hotel needs to have! A small guest coin laundry is available, which we used several times - 4 Euros per load and it automatically dispenses detergent and fabric softener.
On the rooftop there is a courtyard with tables and chairs, plus a children's play area. We didn't use the exercise room or business center, but they looked nice. We aren't big breakfast people so we didn't buy the breakfast buffet option, though it seemed like a number of guests did. Luggage storage is available.
All of the staff we encountered were friendly, professional and prompt with any requests. This was an excellent hotel, especially for the price, and we'll certainly plan to stay again when we next visit Rome!
