Everyone seems to be complaining about this Hotel but me and my boyfriend really enjoyed the week we spent there.
As already mentioned the location is brilliant, we walked literally everywhere apart from to the airport which made our journey a lot cheaper. The hotel is about half an hours walk from the Colosseum and within walking of everywhere else you would want to visit.
The hotel itself was basic but completely worth the money we paid. It was clean and tidy and everything worked including the air conditioning. We didn't spend much time in the hotel apart from when we were getting ready and sleeping, but for that it was fine. The bathroom was very small, but again it didn't need to be any bigger as we were only using it for showering etc.
The lift does work but people don't understand how to use it which means that it often cannot be used. Basically you have to close both doors when you get in AND out, but some selfish people do not bother to close the doors behind them meaning that it cannot be used again until the doors have been closed.
The breakfast wasn't great but was edible, enough to get you through the day. Some of the reviews said that the hotel smelt, but thankfully it didn't when we went (my boyfriend has a really sensitive nose so definitely would have said if he could smell it)
Therefore I would say that the hotel is basic but worth the money we paid. It is in a great location and everything was clean. Didn't need any more from the hotel than it offered. If you want a simple cheap holiday in the centre of Rome then this is the place to stay, but if you want something a bit more upmarket where you can spend more time then i would advise staying somewhere else.
