“The definition of a roach motel.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2013 via mobile

Ended up staying in Rome for one night after a week of touring Italy. This was actually a deplorable place. We got there and the manager insisted we pay cash, which is weird to say the least. We were then lead to a back alley to take a shaky elevator to our room. The room was tiny and the dirtiness was evident immediately. We quickly dropped off our luggage and got out of there to explore the city. The whole time we were sightseeing we were trying to see if other hotels had rooms available. Unfortunately for us there was none considering it was a very busy weekend for Roma. In all honesty, the guy at the desk gave us the creeps and we were convinced our stuff would be stolen from our room. We finally got back at 11pm and had to give the cash to the receptionist before going to the room. The lobby (if you can call a desk and a few chairs in a room a lobby) had other guests waiting but there was nobody at the desk. We had to wait 30 minutes for someone to show up. We finally make it to our room and the grim was disgusting we quickly took shower in a two foot by two foot shower which overflowed. There was also mold growing everywhere in the bathroom and the mold smell was so overwhelming that we had to keep the door closed. When it came time to sleep I slept on top of the covers it was so gross. We woke up bright and early to get the heck out of there. I highly advise anyone considering staying here for even a day to look else where!!!

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 October 2012

Very small room - double bed, night stand, and vanity. No space to leave a suitcase open. Tiny bathroom (approx. 4' X 6') contained stall shower, sink, toilet and bidet. No room in which to turn around. Mattress and pillows were hard and had filthy covers. Thank goodness the linen was clean. Tiny elevator serving six floors - extremely slow. Had to walk outside to next door on street to reach breakfast room. Breakfast was good for a European budget hotel. Convenient to Termini Station, buses and metro. Neighborhood had many restaurants with a range of prices and was not as threatening as others have written.

We were 10 Malmø fotball fans who stayed between 15 to 18 of August and the hotel was fantastic! Clean nice rooms and the staff, Vladimir was very nice and helpful.
We paid 65 euro per night for a dobbelroom incl. breakfast and everything was just great!
We will be back for sure!
Regards Mr Kindgren from Malmø.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 May 2012

The hotel is very well located, near to Termini train station. Room was clean, the breakfast was very well served and the staff was very helpful. I just didn't like the decoration of the room (walls had a tissue instead a wallpaper or ink), it was kind of odd and didn't help to relax. Internet wi-fi was good. A good choice.
