“Nice hotel near Coliseum and Forum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 November 2012

Very clean rooms, small but comfortable. Safe neighborhood. Very helpful and friendly staff. Decent breakfast with a variety of foods with traditional bacon and eggs, fruits, deli meats and cheese, great croissants and coffee. Walking distance to good, reasonably priced restaurants. We would stay here again.

We stayed for 4 days following our 12 day eastern Mediterranean cruise. The rooms are well appointed although the airconditioning was turned off and it was quite warm. Located right downtown by the colliseum, it was easy to walk or taxi everywhere. Close to restaurants and shops. The concierge staff were fabulous. Massimmo took the time to suggest tourists activities and helped us plan our days. The rest of the concierge staff were most helpful as well, particiularly as we needed their help to confirm our flight home.
The roof top terrace is an added feature. Too bad it was a little cool at night.
And what can I say about breakfst offerings...... superb.
We will return..........

Room Tip: Rooms over the street were not very quit at night especially if you open your window. So choose an e...

A standard hotel in a good location near to the Colosseum and within walking distance to the Menzoni Metro stop for the red line. We stayed for 4 nights in October. I cannot express enough how fantastic the front desk staff were at dealing with our enquiries and giving us advice and restaurant recommendations- really outstanding service - nothing was ever too much trouble. Breakfast (as with all the food in Italy) was great - particularly the coffee. The room was a reasonable size BUT following a sleepless first night and returning to the room on the 2nd night I called reception to ask for some help with making the a/c effective since it seemed to be on yet the room was incredibly stuffy despite us trying to air it by having the windows open. I was told, sorry but the manager has turned it off, I am getting lots of complaints from the guests tonight. I was shocked! surely if one guest makes a complaint then the management should try to rectify the situation - but apparently not! I asked for a fan but was told to sleep with the windows open - the next morning I woke to several small insect bites on my legs and ankles (surely not mosquitos??) and when I tried to speak to someone else again the next day about getting a fan into the room or getting the a/c working I was told "this is the law in Italy, we have to switch the a/c off this time of year" which I sincerely doubt is true, I suspect the truth might be more like they dont HAVE to have it turned on and if this is the case surely the management should make a judgement based on the weather and the needs of their customers. There was nothing in the booking confirmation which mentioned this fact as I would have thought twice about making a reservation knowing they were so tight!

Location, location, location!!!! This hotel is not only first class, spotless and tourist friendly, but , the view on the rooftop is spectacular. We walked at nite 2 blocks and sat under the stars staring at the colisseum what an incredible site. It is located close to the Roma terminal to walk but far enough away from the crowds to enjoy a tranquil setting. We would highly recommend this hotel for your Rome holiday. The staff was courteous and helpful attending to any needs we had. They made our stay for our anniversary extra special by providing us with a beautiful bottle of wine upon arrival. We have nothing but praise for this hotel.

My partner and I stayed here for 3 nights in October 2012. Can't fault anything. The location was perfect for us, being 5 mins walk from Palatine Hill, Colesseum, Roman Forum etc and only 25 mins from Piazza Novona/Pantheon area. It's not on a main thoroughfare so the streets around the hotel are quiet, ensuring you get a good night's sleep. Our room was spacious, and the bed really comfortable. Highlight is definitely the breakfast out on the terrace...you have the choice of two terraces, with one of them giving excellent views of the Colesseum. The hotel was fully booked whilst we were there, yet never felt crowded. Staff were friendly and polite and we would definitely stay here again on our next visit to Rome.

We arrived a day early and the hotel was booked. Katia went out of her way to accomodate us.
She settled us into a room, gave us helpful hits of the city and booked us a wonderful dinner reservation. Fabrizio made me the best martini every night. The major problem with this hotel is the air conditioning. We were told it shuts off from 8pm- 1pm every day. It was VERY hot in the room to sleep and getting ready for the days adventure. I would have never stayed in this hotel had I known this in advance. Nice breakfast buffet every morning headed by a wonderful women. Not sure of her name, but she was clearly in charge. Upon leaving we were a bit put off as the morning front desk manager watched us drag our luggage to our taxi. Very strange, since we were always sure to tip the staff. Next time I would try another hotel, perhaps a bit closer to town.
