Not impressed. Their web site says 'minutes' from St Peters, but we found it took a 5 min walk to the bus stop, a 10 min wait for bus, a 15 min bus ride, a 10 min walk to St Peters. Not exactly as close as it sounds!

Also, we arrived back late one night, to find the maid had left our door open (not just unlocked, but open!) all day. The receptionist on duty was far from apologetic and didn't seem at all concerned. We alerted a different receptionist in the morning, who at least apologised.

Finally, we'd booked a twin room, but on arrival were presented with a double. We had to rearrange the room ourselves after the surly receptionist had given us the sheets.

We felt let down by the whole experience...

Was a bit outside the city center - 15 mins with tram - then 3 min walk across Milvio brigde - but nice area with little restaurants and market each day, hotel staff friendly, room small but clean and newly done - breakfast for italian standards good! Good deal for the money!

First time in Rome, arrived at Airport and the taxi we had booked from the Hotel did not turn up. Flight arrived in at 9pm, and we had to then fight our way through a queue to get an airport bus to the Terminal Station. The bus journey took about 30mins. At Terminal Station, we struggled to find a taxi that would take us to the hotel, due to it being "too far away".

We eventually found someone willing to take us, not a licensed taxi though! He was a star and it cost us 30 euros to get to the hotel. At nearly 10pm we just wanted to get to the hotel!

Hotel was set off the road, you wouldn't notice the entrance. The room was quite small but very clean. Staff very friendly and apologised when we asked where our taxi was - they had booked the taxi so it wasn't their fault!

Quiet location, no noise, in a residential area. Not central - but okay when you get the hang of the transport. No 32 bus was great - bus stops on the main road, near the bridge. Approx 20mins on bus to Metro Ottaviano (line A) to take you into Rome.

Take the 32 bus to the last stop, and you are right at the Vatican - so very handy for that!

There did not appear to be any room service available, and the breakfasts were okay - nothing fancy - cereals, hard bread rolls, croissants and cheese and ham.

We ate locally and there were a number of restaurants near to the Hotel. The hotel staff recommended one only 5 mins away and it was fantastic, excellent food and the staff were great in translating the menu for us.

There is a lot of walking about involved - so be prepared!

Oh, and there was a great local market at the square selling all sorts of fish, veggies, clothing - it was good to wander around with the locals buying and selling - this was on the Saturday morning.

Tip - Vatican museums are free to get in on the last sunday of the month - it was mobbed and we didn't get in, even though we got there early (9am) - the queue was unbelievable!

Would probably go back now we know the buses - but it was very confusing at first and taxi drivers are not forthcoming at taking you to the hotel!

Stayed at this hotel in November 2004, and was somewhat unimpressed. While the hotel rooms themselves are very clean and modern, the outside of the hotel is somewhat off-putting. It's a very small, almost hidden entrance, and the area surrounding the hotel tends to be very quiet and unpopular for tourism. Being our first time in Rome, I would've preferred to stay somewhere closer to a Piazza and public transportation. Taxis were on average 10-15 Euros, depending on where you're going. Staff was very friendly despite the language barrier, and willing to help. For the price, it was fine, but would definitely stay somewhere closer to the city centre next time.

Great place. Seems fishy at first due to the language barrier and service seems mysterious, but later we realized it is simply the fact they did not speak much english. Rooms and decent size, beautiful balcony, close to TRAM..if you dont like walking, this isnt for you..if you can walk, nice places to walk..simple once u get used to it.....great price..decent breakfast, nothing fancy but can fill u up ...go for it!
