Reviewed 4 August 2006

Hotel was light and airy and kept very clean was lovely to come back to air con and shower after hot day walking round sights. Staff friendly and helpful no problems. Brekkie fine We took on board prev comments re long walk to metro station Bus is deffo best bet 360 or 228 from via Satrico takes you to San Giovanni metro We also got buses back to the hotel from all areas and attractions in the city no problems either to piazza Zama or via Latina which is just a short walk from hotel There also a lovely walk to San Sebastian Catacoms from hotel passing Quo Vadis a welcome break from the bustle of the city.

Quite nice hotel, very comfortable, clean, renovated and even with a hint of luxury, located inside a small park with lots of greenery & blossom.
Decent brekker, attentive service, pleasantly furnished rooms with all these plush interiors, I even thought of 4* stars level staying there.
However there's one considerable disadvantage - situated far from Rome centre, so no way to reach attractions by feet and to get nearest metro station takes ~25min if walked very quickly.
Means - always check the city maps before agreeing with your travel agency's choice of hotel!

The reception could have been a little more helpful when we were asking information.
And there is an easier way to reach the hotel than the metro. (And that is to use a bus from termini station.)
The breakfast was poor.

The room was very good and clean.

Reviewed 27 July 2005

Stayed here for 5 days in the end of July. This is a mid class hotel with about 40 rooms. The double room we stayed in was small but well equipped and furnished, with controllable AC, cable and a bathroom/shower. Rooms and hotel were very clean, staff speaks reasonable English and was generally helpful. Complimentary breakfast was more than decent, including fresh rolls, coffee, cereal, fruit and bread.

Main disadvantage is the hotel location: although near Rome's center the nearest subway station is about 1.5 kilometers away. There is a bus stop (bus 360) about 100 mtrs down the street, with about 2 busses/hr from Termini (4 kilometers from hotel). If you need to return to the hotel frequently during daytrips I would not recommend this hotel. If you plan to use it for sleeping and breakfast only it's more than fine.

Pro: good value at about 60-70 euro/night for a double, clean and well equipped.
Con: trips to Rome only possible by public transport unless you really like walking.

Alternatives might be hotels in the outer suburbs that are closer to a subway station if you can find one.

Do not book this hotel!! The desk staff took our keys for safe keeping whilst we were out one evening, got into our rooms and stole money. They knew we checked out the next day and thought they'd get away with it. When confronted the management was singularly unhelpful. Totally wrecked my holiday.
