“Excellent !!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2014 via mobile

I couldn't recommend this hotel highly enough if you're thinking of visiting Rome. 5 mins walk from the colosseum but located in a quiet street with hardly any noise, especially good when you're having a drink on the rooftop terrace !!
The helpfulness of the staff is superb. Nothing is too much trouble.
The rooms are clean, comfortable and well equipped with wifi that worked ok for us.
Breakfast was good.
All round this hotel is excellent !!

As other negative reviewers mentioned, except for the breakfast lounge, most of staffs looked like irritated. Receptions often ignored our greetings. The atmosphere was uncomfortable and unhappy. I expected this hotel would be nice referring to Tripadviser, though.

Additionally I was so disappointed to read manager's responses against negative opinions in this web site. They are haughty as know. They should reflect humbly.

I strongly recommend you to stay at other hotels in Rome. There would be a lot of nice hotels. It was unfortunate that our summer vacation in Rome was ruined by this hotel.

As most of you have already seen, this hotel is located close to the Colosseum, so easy to get to many of points of interest in Rome.
The hotel is very clean, with a good/decent breakfast. Again the same paradox for me in Italy: no fresh juice at the breakfast, in a country with a lot of fruits trees.
Bathroom was very clean and with all the things you're expecting for 4*.
The view from the hotel is not as expected and the Colosseum can be seen only from the terrace of the restaurant and probably from only one suite. Despite this fact, I would not consider this a minus. In fact you go to Rome as a tourist or for business, not for staying in a room with a view.
There is a challenge with the parking around the hotel and the personnel could park your car in a parking place but with a huge price per day. If I well remember the price is 42.5 Eur/day
Staff was very, very nice, polite and helpful. They gave us all the information we needed and all the support and I saw only smiling faces at the reception desk.
I would definitely return there when I will visit Rome again.

Ideally located in quiet area close to Colosseum. Friendly, efficient service. English speaking. Very clean and modern. Would recommend highly. Lots of lesser known attractions nearby, within walking distance. Cannot comment on restaurant as this was closed, which we had not expected. €10 taxi to Termini.

This hotel was really nice. They have a rooftop restaurant and you can see the coliseum from the hotel. We took pictures and ate on the rooftop. You can all see some of Rome from the rooftop. You can walk around from the hotel to shops, the park and restaurants. The staff helped up with excursions and airport travel. This hotel is far from the airport but it is walking distance to the Coliseum.

My husband & I stayed here at the beginning of August 2014 for 4 nights before travelling to Sorrento. Lovely hotel in a quiet street and a 5 minute walk to the Colesseum. We also managed to walk to alot of the major sites from here Forum, Piazza Navone, Pantheon, Spanish Steps. We stayed in a Classic room on the 3rd floor, room was larger than expected and a nice suprise. Very comfy bed and good air conditioning which was exactly what we needed at the end of a long day sightseeing. The staff were very friendly & helpful, sorting out taxis, places to eat. Would recommend this hotel & we would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: room on 3rd floor or higher.
