Reviewed 11 October 2013

My wife and I enjoy roaming around Europe. That being said, this Hotel has offered us everything we needed to enjoy our stay for 2 nights. I have never wrote reviews of hotels before, but will start now, based off the other comments and reviews of this hotel. Is the Hotel Hard to find? No, I came strait to it with one turn around because of construction prior to the turn off, so no its not hard to find at all. Prepare yourself, and maybe print off an itinerary, unlike some other people. Google maps and a printer work fine im sure, i didnt use that, i just wrote down the address. The view? well I paid 55 bucks for a private room/bathroom for my wife and I. I plan to do all my viewing and site seeing from outside the hotel. As far as the showers? There is no difference between the showers here in Rome than anywhere else in Europe (We have been backpacking for 3 years as of Oct 28th in Europe). The breakfast? ha, its a European breakfast, which all of Germany and eastblock Europe enjoy, just because you like poptarts for breakfast, and the hotel does not give you any, dosen't mean its crap. For 50 odd bucks a night, this hotel is great. Besides, You have private sleeping cooridors and shower, plus breakfast for just a little more than a hostel, its a bargain. If you want to stay in a hotel for 48 hours out of 2 days in Rome, then dont come here, but if you plan on site seeing and use the Hotel for sleep and refreshing, then this is the place. Im surprised nobody has gave this hotel a 1 star rating for saying the TV was not in English....

Room Tip: The standard double bed room, came with a double bed and 1 twin bed for some reason. So if your a co...

No egg for breakfast. The breakfast terrible. Only a few cold sandwiches for breakfast. The rooms are small and very badly furnished. The shower cage/cubicle is literally a cage. You cannot even lift your hands . If you do that you are going to bang against the glass cubicle or the shower and going to hurt yourselves.

Try to avoid this Hotel as far as possible. Nobody knows this Hotel and it was very difficult to find it. There was no Metro or tram to this Hotel and it takes around 1 hour to reach termini fromm this Hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for an upper florr room on the front elveation of the Hotel. There is a small garden in front of...

We are regular travelers and must say that yes, even if the hotel is 30min from city center..so what! we were on holidays and not on business. The service is really good and the folks are extremely helpful. We asked for a change of rooms as the first one didn't correspond to our needs and in no time, we had a new room. Cleanliness and internet are a must for me and all was perfect! Staff notably Paolo and Felicia were soo helpful and accommodating. Three of us.. a teen included. Area doesn't have many food options but we managed. Might be harder with smaller families at it is an industrial area but its still a great place with very good pricing. Enjoy!!

Room Tip: Ask for the rooms starting on the 1st floor main building. Great place.!

Me and my girlfriend had a booking here back in december 2010. We spent 3 nights here. The room was excellent, it was huge and comfortable for a young pair like us. The set-top-box broke down in the first evening, but had been changed by the next day we got back from our trip:) A bit of black point was that the window from the bath could not be closed entirely. The overall cleaning service in the room was excellent. We had clean towels every day, the bed was arranged nicely. The worst thing: that contrary to the advertise, it is very far from the downtown-travelling by bus. The best things:the hotel itself made a nice impression, when we saw it with the palm trees in front of the drive-in and the continental breakfast was just amazingly good:)

We booked this thinking it would be out of the busy part of Rome but easy to get to the main sites. It took us 90 mins by metro and bus from Rome Termini (factoring in the wait and struggle to get directions) - no-one at the station had heard of the hotel or the road it was on. The station did not have tourist info so we asked the bus drivers which bus to take. Then a 10 minute walk with cases down an industrial estate main road with no pavement. Our room was cheap and dim but clean enough. It faced the main road and we had constant heavy traffic throughout the night.

After checking in we went for a walk to find a restaurant but walked through what can only be described as an unsavoury industrial/residential area. There was a 'lady of the night' on the street corner, a few restaurants after about 15 minutes and we eventually settled on buying our dinner from the supermarket about 20 minutes away.

Breakfast was basic and pastries were stale. No fresh fruit or juice/water. Staff came in and ate from the breakfast bar.

We had booked for 3 nights but stayed for only one - moving closer to the centre and to a nicer hotel. It took us over an hour by bus to the centre of Rome the next day, standing all the way, so we were glad we moved.

If you want a very cheap stay in Rome, choose one closer to the centre as there are plenty of hotels. The journey from Rome Termini is long and on crowded public transport. Taxis are minimum of 25EUROS from the station we were told by the hotel.

I definitely would not recommend this hotel for sightseeing.

Room Tip: Away from main road - wear ear plugs

Hotel offers acmdation for reasonable cost. Room was spacious - underfloor heating! Stayed for 4 nights. Staff at reception, breakfast and room cleaning were pleasant and helpful. Travel to city centre and back a bit tedious due to traffic and congestion. Choice of tram and bus is available - about 45mins.
