Came across this hotel via an Expedia special offer, and it turned out to be a wonderful hotel!!
Even before our trip I exchanged emails with Marco, from the front desk staff about booking a car to pick us up and drop us off at the airport and he was much help! Even further I emailed him again a few days before our trip with a list of questions about how to get to all the major attractions via public transportation. Marco once again replied quickly and was very detailed and helpful!
To no surprise upon our arrival to the hotel Marco checked us in and was extremely detailed in explaining everything to us and super friendly! The rest of the staff for the rest of our stay was also extremely helpful as well!!!
The breakfast buffet is sufficient, with the normal eggs, bacon, pastries, and of course Italian staples of cheese and meats! The breakfast buffet staff was extremely attentive!
The location of this hotel is superb! It's literally a 5 minute walk to the Colosseum, although you would've never guessed you were in a neighborhood close to such a busy tourist attraction! Taxi arrived promptly when the front desk called them for us! And most other tourist attractions were a short taxi trip (most expensive being 15 euros for 5 people).
We had a room facing the street and needed our windows open to cool the room off, so it was a little loud at night just with cars and people passing by but I rather enjoyed being able to listen to the Italian as people passed!
The only issue with my room that was really disappointing was the bed, the mattress was extremely hard!
