Reviewed 3 May 2014

This April we went to Rome with a group of 34 pupils from our school. We were supposed to stay in another hotel, but due to the canonisation of the two popes, our hotel wasn't available anymore, so we had to find another hotel. The teachers who had organised the trip chose this hotel. Because my friends and I were curious, we read some reviews here. The reviews were really poor but we figured (hoped!) it probably sounded worse than it actually was.

When we entered the hotel, it looked like we were right, until we went upstairs. When we unlocked the door of our 4 person room the first thing we noticed wasn't the state of the room itself, but the fact that our already small room was separated by a giant wall with a hole in it! The room was also strangely organised. The beds were placed next to each other vertically and it almost seemed like our room was two rooms put together. The ceiling was really high, the walls were dirty and the carpet looked like as if it was as old as Rome itself. The fact that our room only had 2 power outlets wasn't very pleasant either. The beds weren't extremely comfortable and my matras had a few stains on it. The bathroom was really small, not very clean and when you flushed the toilet it sounded like a tsunami was coming. The shower was tiny, but at least ours was functioning (the shower of some of our friends wasn't!). I was also sure the sink would fall off the wall if I'd put too much weight on it. The same goes for the toilet seat by the way. The only things that I were happy about, was the fact that our room wasn't adjacent to the street, so we could sleep with an open window (there's no ac, so sleeping with an open is almost necessary when it's warm outside) without being bothered by all the noises outside and the fact that the wifi actually worked on our room.

As for the other things: the staff was friendly, breakfast was not really good and actually quite poor and the elevator looked quite scary but did not once cease to function.

The only thing that's actually nice about this hotel, is its location. It's only a 2 minute walk to Termini (Rome's central station), the Santa Maria Maggiore is only 5 minutes away and the hotel is surrounded by a lot of nice restaurants.

All in all, this hotel is poor. I'm not a very picky person. I only want my hotel room to be clean, to not be looking like it's not been renovated or taken care of for a very long time and to be spacious enough to move around properly. And I don't want my room to have a wall in it. And even for these basic wishes, this hotel doesn't suffice. So please, do yourself a favour and pick another hotel.

Room Tip: We had room 303. So if you end up in this hotel after all (may Jupiter be with you) and don't wa...

I think that the Tripadvisor and other tourist guiding websites must de-link this hotel from their websites because it is a very dirty, smelly and stinky place. It is worst hotel in the world. It has small rooms, with very hard and out-dated bedding.
The breakfast options is just nothing, only a hard loaf of bread, you need teeth of iron to bite and chew it.
I was misled by a website and I booked the hotel for four nights with advance non-refundable payment, but believe me that me and my family could not sleep properly in the hotel.
The attached bathrooms are very dirty with old and damaged taps/showers.
The side tables were damaged and too dirty to use.

Room Tip: There is nothing good in this hotel, so don't be misled.

Worst hotel EVER. It wasn't clean, it was disgusting, especially the bathroom. Our shower was just a crane. Our toilet wasn't working, plus mold everywhere. There were spots all over the room and holes in the walls. Ants everywhere. I can't express in words how disgusting this hotel was. Don't go there, it may be cheap, but it is really not worth it. Sleeping in a poop-hole would be better.

Location is perfect. 2 minutes from Termini station on foot, which is great. Because you can only go to Termini directly from the airport. So, it is a good idea to stay aroud Termini. And also, the hotel is few step away to Via Cavour, which is kinda touristic street. When you walk throughout Via Cavouri, you get Colleseum. All Rome attractions are near to each other. So, you can walk somewhere, you can walk to another place from your last location on foot. Everywhere in Rome is very touristic.

Breakfast is not bad, not good. There are jam, bread, butter, hazelnut spread, biscuit, and bevarge. No cheese, no salami, no

If you have an early flight or train, you can consider to stay around Termini. Because of the cheap price, you can stay at Acropoli.

This hotel is a little less than basic. The toilet is very tiny and terrible: it got soaked after shower and the flushing system didn't work. Beds and housekeeping service are ok, wi-fi connection a little slow. The staff were friendly and helpful, they speak English and Portuguese. The best of all: it's just a 5 minute walk from Termini Station, where you can take trains and subway to everywhere, including international destinations.

Room Tip: Check if the flushing is working before.
