We stayed at Hotel Panda for 4 nights during our honeymoon in May 2009. We knew going in that we were staying at the Hotel Panda because it was cheap and we liked the location. That being said I can say little good about the place besides it was clean, had a nice location, and was somewhat quiet.
Our room didn’t have a clock, radio, or tv which was fine, but it was literally a bed, night stand and chair in the room. Kind of like a clean prison cell (from what I have heard)! You had to buzz out twice to leave the building and I joked to my wife that it seemed we were buzzing out of jail. Also, our hallway had a funky odor.
The front desk staff was somewhat dysfunctional and I never saw the same person twice. They also weren’t very friendly. I asked about the internet and they said I would need to come to the lobby to get a signal (the lobby was smaller than my bedroom with a weird couch…seemed like a college apartment).
We will probably return to Rome again, but we would surely upgrade from the Hotel Panda. If you need a clean room in a nice location for 100 euro a night… its not to shabby.
