My husband and I visited Rome in January for 3 days and we booked this hotel as it was a reasonable price and most of the reviews were good. The hotel was fine but unfortunately a couple of days after we returned home I started to get bitten whilst sleeping. After a few days of wondering what was feeding on me, we discovered we had bed bugs. There is no way we did not bring these back from the hotel with us! We made the mistake of not checking the mattresses (which we will ALWAYS do in future) and we also put our suitcase under the bed as the room is very small so this seemed the only place for it (another mistake as bed bugs just jump on in there and come home with you). As a result we have had to get pest control to our home which has cost us £75 and we have had to wash all our bedding and clothes and tumble dry everything in order to make sure we kill all the eggs the little buggers lay. We thought Rome was beautiful but we can't help feel annoyed when we think of our little trip as it ended up being very costly with the souvenirs we bought home with us from Eurostars Domus Aurea.
By all means stay here as the rooms are ok, if a little small, and the location isn't bad. The room was warm which was good as I thought it may be cold in winter. The walls are thin so I could hear the tv from the next room and people talking but it wasn't too bad. Breakfast was ok - quite a lot of choice but none of it amazing really but it sets you up for the day.
To conclude the hotel was fine but just make sure you check the mattresses! Look for brown/red specks in the corners and under the buttons as this is signs that bed bugs are present. If you see this ask to move to another room as bed bugs don't mean an unclean/dirty place - they can just get everywhere and travel with you so just keep an eye out for the pesky things!
