Stayed at this hotel for 3 nights.
Booked on the basis of the reviews on Tripadvisor.
The positive points about the hotel are that it is very new, very clean and in a good central location. We found all the staff we dealt with to be courteous and helpful.
It is a 'no frills' hotel - rather like a Travelodge but with a higher standard of fixtures and fittings.
On the not so positive side of things, our room (410) was unbearably hot, which meant it was not a pleasant environment. It is not possible to control the heating which was at a constant 25 degrees celsius. Even with the windows open all night we could not sleep well. This is a problem the hotel seems aware of but is struggling to address. For the final night we were provided with a fan and the option to change rooms. The room we were shown had a very small bed so we did not bother.
On another point I was disappointed with the size of our room (and the alternative room we were shown). Reading the reviews here it is clear that some rooms are much more spacious than the two we saw, hence the very positive reviews written about them- it is worth bearing in mind that not all the rooms are spacious. I contacted the hotel in advance as my husband is 6 foot 5, requesting a suitable room. For whatever reason we were allocated one one of the smaller rooms with two beds zipped together - leaving very little floor space.
In summary the hotel did the job and was good value for Rome. If I visited again I would probably go for one of the more established options and pay a bit more money. I would score the hotel 3.5 out of 5.
