My wife and I just completed a stay at this hotel and to be honest, would never recommend this as a place to stay unless you are paying 50 euro or less per night.
pro:1) location is 5 min from balogna metro which means you have all of rome at your fingertips
2)young lady at the front desk during the weekdays was very helpful and extremely pleasant
& this is all we have to say about the good experiences....
cons: 1)asked for a non-smoking room & we rec'd a room clearly with the smell of lingering cigarettes. for non smokers, this is/was a big deal...the explanation was as infuriating as the room itself "we cannot control what our guests do in the room" 2)3 flights of stairs with no lift (not a big deal but can be at the end of an exhausting hot summer day 3)broken skylight cover which meant 6am wake up call via sunshine pouring into your eyes....make sure you have an eye mask! 4)air conditioner was set at medium (make sure you turn up the pressure up via a side panel...it isn't the greatest air conditioner 5)"free wifi" access once you pay 2 euro per device & it only works in the lobby 6)the bathroom is smaller than most of the closests in my home. You basically have enough room to turn around in the shower (I am 5'9 175 pounds and don't take up much space)....brutal!
Hope this helps with your decisions on booking or not! Safe travels my friends.
