We stayed here for 4 nights during March 2014. The hotel had been recently been refurbished and our room 338 although small was excellent. The bed was huge, two singles joined together, and the quality of the fittings and finish in the shower room was fantastic equal to any 4star hotel. There was a flat screen TV, fast free WiFi and a fridge mini-bar. There was also air-con in the room but we didn't need to use it. The window overlooked the garden and lemon tree. The buffet breakfast was served in the basement which had also recently been redecorated. In the summer we understand that breakfast is served in the courtyard garden which is unusual for the centre of Rome. The buffet breakfast was very good with bread, rolls, ham, cheese, salami, croissants, selection of cake, jams, chocolate spread, cereals, selection of yoghurts, prunes and tinned fruit salad with coffee, tea, hot chocolate and fruit juice to drink. The staff were very friendly and helpful especially Milena who served the breakfast, she gave us tour hints, directions and bus numbers - a great help! She also offered to make "real Italian cappuccino coffee" rather that the stuff from the machine! It was delicious!! The hotel is well placed being only 5 minutes walk from Termini station, the bus station, lines A & B on the Metro and where the airport coaches drop off. It's not very salubrious around the actual station, it never is in any city, but the hotel is in a quiet road we were never disturbed by noise. All in all a fantastic budget hotel. We feel that earlier negative reviews must have been before the refurbishment. Although there is not a safe in the room, the reception staff are more than happy to put your valuables in an envelope and put it in the hotel safe. Be realistic and remember if you choose a 3* hotel do not expect 5* facilities!!!! It's our third trip to Rome, it's a beautiful city........ But do beware of pickpockets! Keep your purses, phones and wallets safe!!!
