Reviewed 28 August 2013

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights, I had read on trip advisor that the hotel was difficult to find & to notify the hotel of the time we would be arriving, which I did by email a few days before we were due to travel. It wasn't too bad finding the street but the actual hotel is down a very small street and does not actually have a sign to say it is there, it would be more helpful if there was a sign. Getting into the building was very easy, someone answered the bell and opened the doors for entry almost immediately, and a member of staff came within 5 minutes to check us in. The room was nice and large and very clean, the breakfast was as we expected and we ordered a number of each item as advised after one of the other reviews in Trip advisor. The location of the hotel is excellent, within easy walking distance of a lot of the tourist sites, restaurants and bars. Overall we had an lovely stay at the hotel, the staff were all very helpful and allowed us to leave our luggage to collect later on the day of our departure as our flight was not leaving until late evening. The only problem we had was trying to get a bus back to the Termini to get the airport shuttle bus during rush hour, we waited for 40 minutes, all buses were packed, we ended up having to get to the Termini by other means.

We stayed in the Medora room, and we loved it. The room is very big, the bathroom is also big and very clean :)
We read on Booking.com that the breakfast is terrible, but it wasn't that bad... The coffee was OK, BUT you can get much much better (!!) when you go out, but the rest is quite right. don't expect royal breakfast for the money you pay.
When you arrive, they will ask you what time you would like to have you breakfast. Because we're a couple who likes to leave early to travel (and I have a read that there is a lot of noise from the main room in the morning as they prepare breakfast - and indeed there is noise), I asked the earlier time - 8 AM, so the noise was not really relevant and not really bothered us sleep :)
It's very easy to miss the entry to the place. Keep a sharp eye on the signs of the streets of every alley !!! we read about it on Booking.com, and because we knew it was a problem, we gave extra attention to the signs, and found the place easily. You should also do so.
In addition, there are some stairs to climb with luggage to get in, and it's not the most comfortable (eg older couple) but definitely doable.

It is a very good (!!) hotel for low budget trip. We enjoyed our stay.

**It is very important (!) to coordinate with the hotel of your arrival time, to have someone to welcome you, do not underestimate this detail!!!!**

This is not for those who want a 24 hour hotel desk to hold their hand, it's more like living in an apartment where someone brings you breakfast. The service is friendly, but there is no one there after 7pm. The beds are large and comfortable, the bathrooms modern and the windows large with old fashioned wooden shudders. The small block it is on is close to many major attractions and across from the Trestevere. If you are arriving late let them know ahead of time and be sure to get which key is which straight before you go out for the evening. Here's to living like a local instead of staying in another tourist hotel!

Room Tip: They have two large rooms for a few more euro that are a little grander.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel recently on our trip to Europe. The inn is a bit difficult to find (look for the Hotel Portoghesi and then turn right down the alley to left of that hotel), but it is in a great location within walking distance of most of the main historic sites (Piazza Navona, Pantheon, Vatican). We were pleasantly surprised by the size of the room and bathroom. The building has a lot of character and wood beam ceilings. To get character, though, don't expect a standard hotel. There is no real "lobby" and no staff on-hand at all times. The staff that checked us in and brought our breakfast each morning were very nice, though. The best things about the hotel were the location, bathroom, and large room size. The main drawbacks were not having a staff person to help with questions about Rome and the quality of the breakfast. The breakfast only included mediocre coffee, bread, and croissants...other items like water, juice, etc. were a la carte and cost extra. WiFi was free and reliable, and the hotel was quiet.

Dear Guest
Thank you for your comment, because all our clients feedback help us to improve our service.
We would like to inform you that we are a “spread hotel” that means that we have different structure in Rome and all releted to a central reception that it’s open from 8.30 am to 9 pm every day.
If needed you should have called 100 by the phone into your room and the person in charge gave some advices!
Our first aim is to satisfy our clients needs and become their stay memorable!
After 10.00 pm we have also a guardian that answer at the phone in the night and a video door bell in case of emergency, the same person in charge will be able to help you in any kind of eventualities.
Concerning the breakfast, at the moment we are changing some products to ameliorate continously our service.

Hoping to welcome you again in the next future, we wish you best regards

My partner and I stayed here over Christmas, the room was clean and spacious, the staff were helpful and the location is fantastic. It was our first trip to Rome and the location was great for exploring all the sights. We were able to do everything on foot. With regards to previous reviews we found as long as you emailed the owners as to what time you are going to arrive there was no problem. In fact we were delayed and someone was there waiting for us to check in. Breakfast is simple but lovely a coffee, croissant and bread, jams/marmalade etc. You request the time you want this and it is brought to your room, anytime between 8 and 10 am. I would definitely stay here again, do not hesitate booking.

Room Tip: We requested a spacious room.

When we arrived at the bed and breakfast, there was no one there to open the door for us. We spent over an hour knocking on the door and calling them, but no one answered. We ended up having to get a different hotel for the night because we were left out on the street with all our luggage and no one to contact. Now, a month later they had the nerve to charge my credit card for that night that we spent partly on the street, partly in a different hotel.
In addition, room was dark and breakfast was mediocre. Staff almost didn't speak English and were not able to give any tourist information.
