“Charming Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 November 2013

We had six nights here and found it very comfortable and clean. The staff are very polite and friendly, nothing seems to be too much trouble. The position of the hotel is a bit out of the City but links in and out are very good. There are some great places to eat nearby. We hired a car which was garaged in the basement making it very easy to get in and out.

This hotel is clean, updated and in a nice area. The rooms are a decent size, the beds are extremely comfortable and the washroom is large. The staff is friendly and breakfast is included. Wifi was easily accessible and the staff is very helpful. The location is a bit outside the tourist area which is nice. You need to be comfortable navigating the transit to get here but it is worth it. There are many restaurants and shops/boutiques to browse through and the Colosseum and other attractions are approx 20 mins away by transit. My husband and I had an enjoyable stay and would stay here again.

Initially I was very happy with this hotel, the rooms are small but lovely. The included breakfast was excellent. I stayed here 5 nights and it was initially a problem figuring out the transit system to get down town. A couple blocks down the hill and to the right is a tobacco shop where they sell bus tickets. The bus system is designed for local people and a little difficult to understand and use. Its best to get a map at the hotel, find a street where you want to go, then find a bus that will service that street. Coming home its best to take the Metro to Flamingo and then catch the near-by via Flamilia train service to a bridge that is near the hotel. Total ride on this train is about 4 miles.

During the 3rd and 4th day I was exhausted, didn't feel good and tried to sleep. The hotel, however, had someone drilling on the walls and that went on all day long, it was horrible, totally miserable with my headache, and impossible to sleep. On the 4th evening I lined out my airport transfer with the manager for the next morning. However, the desk lady made a mistake the next morning and called a taxi instead. There was no time to correct the mistake and it cost me $126 for that ride, plus I lost $28 that I had previously paid for the shuttle service. I had spent all my money since I was going home so the taxi driver and I had to drive to several different terminals to find a working ATM machine. The whole experience was stressful, and I barely made my flight. When I got home I contacted the hotel for compensation but they would only offer a two step upgrade on a room the next time I was in Rome. I would have to stay for ~ 5 or 6 days to break even on the monetary loss that I incurred. I wasn't impressed with there rather self serving offer. I ended up paying $154 for the airport transfer instead of $28 and it was because of their mistake.

In closing, I had a perfect 1 month vacation in Spain, France, and Italy, but this was a miserable and costly ending to my trip. The hotel is nice but out of the way of main attractions, the staff is friendly but could improve their service, and the drilling noise was totally unacceptable and miserable. I would not stay here again, they were not helpful in remedying their mistake.

Very good hotel in a fantastic location in Rome. Staff is really helpful and the quality of service is far beyond the average of Italian hotels. Clean and silent rooms, proactive approach on additional service. I believe that for businessmen today it's crucial to have a internet working in all rooms and apparently the entire first floor had no coverage.

Room Tip: Better not to choose rooms on the ground floor (internet might not work)

i decided to stay just outside the 'CITY' to avoid the noise and traffic.We thought the service at this hotel was amazing. We had the best coffee in Italy while at the lobby bar.This hotel is 15/17 eu cab ride from the center of the city. Very close to beautiful parks and museums.
We would stay there again for sure..
Wonderful places to dine just a short walk down the block.

Room Tip: we asked for large bed and balcony/terrace....it gave us a bit more room to spread out.

We stayed for 6 nights back in September. Hotel spotless, friendly staff and an excellent buffet breakfast with a lot of choice. The area is a bit outside the centre but a short walk over the Ponte Milvio and you can get the no 2 tram down to the Piazza del Popolo and from here you can walk to all of the main attractions in Rome. Do wear comfortable shoes and carry a water bottle with you as you can fill up from numerous free standpipes all over the city.
The area around the hotel has lots of very nice restaurants and bars so is well worth heading back to for the evening to relax and review your day.
Would certainly stay here again.

Decided to stay outside the centre of Rome and this hotel was an excellent choice. Very comfortable, clean, nice room with plenty of sockets for chargers and excellent breakfast choices. Bar prices not a rip off either. Local area lovely and very comfortable to be out in in the evening. Lots of lovely restaurants, reasonably priced and the area was vibrant with young people out socialising, all very well behaved. No problem getting into central Rome as bus stop round a couple of corners with a choice of routes linking up with the Metro system, all very easy. The Roma pass we bought for three days was a godsend as we certainly avoided the horrendous queue at the Colosseum and used any bus, tram or metro for the three days. It was a relief to get out of the city after full days of sightseeing and this hotel we felt was a really good choice.
