Reviewed 16 June 2014

Had a 4 night stay in may. Found the hotel staff very pleasant and knowledgeable. Our room was fine and by chance we got the balcony above the main entrance which was great to stand out on and have a drink in the evening.
Bus stop was just outside the hotel and buses ran very regularly until midnight so we were able to stay out till the late evening in rome centre.Would only recommend this hotel if you don't mind using the public transport it takes 15-20 mins to get in to the centre.
Bar was quiet until the coach parties arrived but we still managed to get served but to be honest we spent most of our time in rome centre. I found our room quiet even though we were above the main entrance although we were extremely tired from sightseeing every day from the early hours.
I found breakfast simple but fine.
Wifi did not work but to be honest i was too busy or tired to bother checking emails, apps or surfing the web.
Would recommend this hotel provided you know its a bit out of the centre and don't mind using the public transport or taxis to the main sights.

just back from 3 night stay. It is out of the way but it wasn't a problem for us - only 10-15 min walk to the metro which we used all the time rather than buses. Breakfast was fab with load of fruit yoghurt hot stuff as well as the usual continental. The room was large and the free Wi-Fi worked a treat! We ate out at lunch and had our evening meal back at the hotel which we found god value for money. The bar downstairs was great (prosecco only £5 per glass) and all the staff were fantastic, especially the blonde lady in the restaurant who never seemed to leave! I found it a great place to stay for a first trip to Rome and would recommend it to everyone.

Room Tip: we had a room facing the back of the hotel - stayed cool and was very quiet

The location of the hotel is too far from center, next metro station is 20 min by foot, near the hotel is the bus station but they dont come regulary in the evening, after 11 p.m no busses goes this direction,only taxi.
The Breakfast was good, but they dont change anything in the variety, everyday same offer.
Rooms are clean and good furnished but the wifi connection in room was very bad,we even had 2 days without wifi as they had problems with server, even in lobby poor wifi signal.

Cant fault this hotel. Lovely room and very spacious. Breakfast, well its a continental breakfast - your not going to get an english fry up !!!! There was a good varity of food so could not complain. We were a 10 minute bus ride from the City. The bus stop is right outside the hotel. NOTE - buy a bus ticket up the road in the local shops but dont punch it when you get on the bus - no one does so we travelled the whole week for the cost of 1.50 euro lol. If you do get asked, just plead ignorance and produce your ticket - no drama. Once in the city, we found it helpful to keep the main road parallel to you when walking. Its very easy to get lost, even with a map. Keep your bottle of water topped up by the lovely water fountains dotted around the place. Its lovely fresh spring water and wont harm you at all. The staff at the hotel are lovely and friendly. Sahid the bar man will make it his mission to make you drink !!! he was great. Overall lovely hotel, great location, fantastic holiday and will be booking up again next year as didnt get to see all i wanted. Will highly recommend this hotel

Room Tip: We had room 311, great corner room with only 1 neighbour, no one on the other side.

Hotel modern and clean but nowhere in walking distance. Be prepared to use public transport every day. Nothing to do at hotel, really most suited for business clients. Breakfast lacking and walls and connecting doors so thin you really can hear EVERY Sound from neighbours! Second time in Rome would not stay here ever again! Pay extra for hotel close or in centre, in the long run it'll be worth it!

Room Tip: Choose another hotel and location.

Stayed for two nights. Overall hotel was clean and room was reasonable size for Rome. However, Internet was worse than useless with wifi working for about 2 minutes before breaking. This was common to others in out tour group. Also, elevator holds only 6 people and is a long wait and a crush at breakfast time. Location is a bit cut off so need own transport or be prepared for a long walk to get public transport. A/c worked well in the room and there are opening doors to a courtyard outside.

We wanted a short break in Rome and wanted a nice hotel to stop in, let's say we were. It disappointed at all with this hotel. Lovely stylish rooms, friendly staff, breakfast included in the booking we had which was really good lots of selection. Location wise I thought it was great as it was away from the hustle and bustle of the centre of Rome, there are bus stops just outside the hotel, quite a few shops nearby and the tube about 10-15min walk which we used for the duration of our stay. Free wifi in the reception area
