Comfortable beds, our two rooms 004, 005, were both handicapped rooms. Very comfortable beds, and since they were half below ground - very quiet. Very clean. Towels replaced daily, plastic cups, refrigerator...which I never even looked in. Decent a/c as well. Only noise came from hotel guests in the hallway....people forget they aren't the only people around.
Staff - SO GOOD. Mauricio, I believe the GM, was friendly, attentive, and a pleasure to deal with.
Front desk always helpful. Zahid, the bartender, an absolute joy. Such a gentle, attentive man. He has a large area to attend to, but always managed a greeting and a smile when we walked by.
Location. As mentioned by other guests....it is not in the heart of rome, but the bus is very easy. We enjoyed the location. I've been to Rome many times and would certainly consider staying here again.
ONLY COMPLAINT - the breakfast is adequate for filling the void, but a few minor changes could make it so much better. The breads are ALL dry - whether the sweet variety or plain. The yogurt was always runny. I don't eat meat, but others in our party found the meat products a bit unsavory. The beans were good! Scrambled eggs and hard boiled eggs were also offered.
Our first night we ate in the restaurant. The service was attentive and very good. The food was fine, nothing exciting, but it was good. Same room as breakfast and feels like you're at a wedding reception.
Local restaurant La Nocetta, to the right and around the first corner to your left is fantastic....but beware...VERY dangerous walking. My mother in law actually took a tumble. Taking a cab means the minimal charge of 10euro.
FYI.....the hotel used to be a convent.
