“Helpful staff, good location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014

Stayed here as part of a tour group and it was obvious that many other tour groups used the hotel. Our room was larger than many city hotel rooms we have stayed in, it was kept clean and tidy as was the bathroom.Because it was at the front it did mean that we heard traffic noise but it was not too intrusive.
Breakfasts were good - there was a great deal of choice and any nearly empty dishes or jugs were quickly filled up.
All the staff were very helpful and explained how to use the trams, buses and trains to get to where we wanted to go. Being so close to transport makes it an ideal place to stay.

Just returned from 5 lovely days in Rome and enjoyed our stay at the hotel staff were always helpful and checkin was swift and efficient very nice room on the 2nd floor spacious and very clean,good choice for the contintial breakfast and the staff were always ready to assist you if needed,bar prices were reasonable and although didn't eat in hotel it did look very nice ,although just on the edge of the main area of Rome there are plenty of very good restaurants within walking distance, all in all I would recommend the hotel as a ideal base for a trip to Rome
As for feeling threatened by pickpockets just stay aware as you would in any country

excellent hotel, very clean and modern, staff very friendly and helpful, breakfast good choice, met with all expectations as per write up when booking, 35 degrees when we stayed very hot therefore did not rush about, 20 minute slow stroll to coliseum and forum.

We have just returned from a 5 day trip to Rome with Riviera Travel and were not over impressed with this Hotel. I would have preferred a Hotel in a better location closer to the centre of Rome as I didn't feel very safe in Rome as we were constantly told by the Tour Guide to be careful of being robbed! I therefore didn't feel as if I wanted to attempt to travel on the Metro or the buses. The rooms were ok but they were not soundproofed which they state they are on their website which is really false advertising. We were on the 7th floor and could hear the people next door talking and their TV as well so not ideal when you are trying to sleep! There were however other aspect of this Hotel that were good, like the breakfast with lots of choice and the food served in the evening was also good. But I won't be returning to Rome or to this Hotel. Not for me I'm afraid.

Dear HollyEngl,
Thank you for the comment.
I am sorry to read you have not totally enjoyed your stay at our hotel.
For what concerns the location, I am also sorry that our proximity to the Colosseum and the Roman Forum did not meet your expectations.
Apologizing for having failed in offering a service up to your demand, I do hope you'll like to give us another chance so to prove you our best efforts.
Best regards.

Seeing the sign of the hotel as you exit the Manzoni metro station is a huge relief after a long ride to Rome. But I later realized that the location was wonderful in other ways too!

The check-in desk was efficient and helpful, explaining the map and proudly letting it be known that a short 15 minute walk would take you to the Colosseum! And late in the evening, we decided to test it and true to his words, just a few minutes through a leafy avenue, we caught our first glimpse of the Colosseum - we were indeed in Rome!

The hotel itself was nice and clean. The room was well organized and decent size with a good supply of amenities. Breakfast could have been better but I must commend the lady who was waiting on us on the last day. We had gone in the first couple of days with one of the staff just waving a hand to show that it was free seating and went about their chores. But this lady asked for our choice of tea or coffee and my wife wanted an omelette, which was not standard fare, but she organized it very quickly with the chef! Goes to show that people make great places and not the other way around!

We booked this hotel last minute while driving from Florence to Rome so didnt know what to expect. but it was more than we could imagine. bang in the middle of rome and within walking distance of all major sites it was ideal for the purpose of the visit. the room was very comfortable even though a bit old fashioned but very spacious and clean. best value for our money!!!
