“Funky boutique hotel”
Reviewed 12 May 2013

This boutique hotel is basically a bunch of rooms on a floor of an apartment building. There is no lobby, per se, simply a desk by the entrance which serves as Reception, and a very small kitchen which is where the staff prepare breakfast. The rooms are nicely styled - modern, red decor, very clean, although there are obvious signs of wear-and-tear (carpets frayed along the edges, scuff marks on walls etc). Each morning, you simply open your door and tell the staff you would like your breakfast, which they bring to your room. Other reviews have commented on the poor-quality of the breakfast but it is a Continental breakfast, not American breakfast. For a Continental breakfast, it is quite apt (juice, coffee, croissant, yoghurt, toast). Internet access is readily available for free and the staff are incredibly helpful, polite and informative. Termini station is about a 15-minute walk away, or you can catch one of the buses from the stop around the corner, including the #62 which takes you to nearly all the Roman sights.
We would stay there again should we revisit Rome.

Imperial Suite is no hotel, I thought it is a 4 Star Hotel but it is not.
Anyways, Service was really good, they cared about us, they helped us find the right way, showed us where to eat, everything was fine.
Room seems to be new, Bathroom good, but the bed was just ok...
Room is loud, you can hear everything from the floor outside (starting at 6:30am), which is a big minus.

Interesting place to stay for a weekend in Rome, top floor of an apartment block, rooms at the back nice and quiet from the road. Although the decor is modern (some light fittings not finished which seemed a bit odd) the noise travels from other rooms and reception so did have disturbed sleep most nights. Ensuite small but has everything you need! Free wifi is good and the breakfast that is brought to your room is adequate. Easy to get the no 62 bus at the end of the street into the centre of Rome. Walking distance to Villa Borghese and managed to buy our Rome Passes form the galleria there, well worth the money both for the transport and museums. Walking distance 15 mins to Termini where the train arrives/departs to the airport and only takes 30 mins 14 euro each. Overall good value for money in this city.

My friend and I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. Getting to the hotel was a bit of mission as it is down all the back roads, but once found it was an amazing location as streets were very quite and it was easy to locate again - even after a few glasses of wine!

When we first arrived we were told that our room we had booked was unavailable and that we will be having the deluxe suite instead (we were very pleased, seeing as we had booked the standard room!)

The deluxe suite was across the road to the reception building and was immaculate, stunning and the shower was amazing! We felt very at home. After settling into the hotel we decided to have a wander and see what is around and found that everything was very close. Also close to the hotel was the best restaurant we went to on the whole trip, I cannot remember the name of it but if you walk out the reception building door and turn right, it is straight in front of you! (closed Mondays) The staff were very friendly and eager to please, ensuring we had a good meal. I highly recommend the lobster linguine!

On our last night we had to go back into our standard room, which was bigger than the deluxe suite but not as high a standard to furnishings and the walls were a bit stained. That didn't bother us though, the room was comfy and the bed was clean which is all that matters!

I had read that people said it was noisy in this part of the hotel but we didn't hear a thing - and the hotel was full! If people were expecting more... they should pay more (and lighten up!!).

Overall, I would highly recommend this hotel and will definitely be coming back!

Room Tip: Book the deluxe suite if you want the best room! Worth paying extra for

This Budget Hotel was quite a surprise. The detail and quality were very good and I highly recommend this Hotel for anyone not just the budget minded. It was an easy 15 minute walk to Termini and had many places to eat nearby. Rome rocks - just don't park there!
I had only one problem and when that is fixed the place is perfect - Ma piccolo. The room I was in had a leak from the above apartment and when they had a shower you could hear everything and the noise from the leak was unbearable. Ask if this has been fixed! A huge problem. The owner is young and forward thinking so I am sure it will be done soon.

Myself and my partner have just returned from 3 nights stay at this hotel. Although the hotel is not that easy to find due to it being inside a typical Roman building on the 5th floor, as long as you look for number 92 you will find it! Upon arrival we were greeted by the hotel manager, Damien. He immediately gave us a map of the city, recommened places to eat and advised how to get to the major sights. He then showed us to our room which is exactly how it looks of the hotel's official website, very spacious and clean! We were offered tea/coffee then and when we returned from our sightseeing each day. We even had our breakfast brought to our room each morning. The breakfast was simple, but still good.
The only negative point I have about this hotel is the noise. The noise from the street appears quite loud and noise from the reception area can be heard from in the room. Although this did disturb our sleep each night, I still cannot say anything else bad about this hotel. The staff are all very pleasant and accomodating and the rooms are clean.
Would recommend a stay here and would stay again! It is within walking distance to the Termini station and to some lovely restaurants, anything else can be easily reached by the local buses which are very cheap. We took a "City Sightseeing" tour which is a hop on hop off bus service which takes you around the main sights and was good value for money at 17 euros for a 2 day ticket.

Upon arrival we were shown to our clean spacious contemporary room. We were early but they let us in so we could have a little power nap!
When we woke the guy was there to take our payment and draw quite ellaborate instructions on a map on how to get to the main sights.
One day I realised I had lost our boarding passes and they let me use their laptop and printer to print them out. When I'd finished we were given coffee and a yoghurt!! We were asked what kind of water we wanted in the room and constantly offered coffee and tea.
Rooms are spacious and very clean and cleaned each day.
The only downside is that there is no sign for the hotel so keep a lookout for the number 92.
A real bargain, highly recommended!
