Reviewed 8 May 2014

When you stay in Rome in this time of year, its hard to find available hotels. We were traveling with group and agency found this one. Its 12km outside of city center, and you need to travel with bus to get to a metro to center. Outside, hotel looks scary, but the rooms are clean and simple... surprise surprise when we arrived around 15.30h rooms werent yet prepared!!! I never heard that you need to pay 5euros to whatch tv or 7euros per day per person to have wifi connection. One day we couldnt open the room with the card, and they did that on pourpose, so we needed to pay tax to get in. Like we wouldnt. We had about half hour for breakfast, because the dining room is small and there can fit small group of people, and the hotel was full and huge. Breakfast was simple but ok.

Only good thing was- when in Rome you walk all thay long so you dont spend much time in hotel ;)

No hot water, no air condition, windows do not open, too far from the city, very discourteous personnel. No ammenities in the bathroom, not even kleenex. Dirty towels. Should I go on?
The only possitive thing is there are accesible AC outlets, but expensive internet, 7 euros a day.

I stayed at the hotel for two nights by myself. It is clean and tidy even though it could offer more... The window was broken, the shower was broken and after a few minutes the water was coming cold.
The breakfast was very good though, homemade cakes, biscuits and great tasty ham and cheese!

Stayed on a contiki tour December 2013. We were warned about the general rubbishness of Italian hotels but was pleasantly surprised by this one.

Had a double room which had a very comfy queen bed, clean and updated bathroom with shower over tub. Bathroom also had retractable clothes lines so you could wash and hang a few things if you wished.

Breakfast standard continental style for Europe. Nothing hot but this is standard across the continent.

Only gripe was the thermostat. In the middle of winter it was very hot in the room and had to figure out the old fashioned oil wall heater as no instructions provided in the room. Even after turning it off it was very warm so had to crack a window overnight to let cool air in.

Very far out of town and minimal public transport. Closest metro station is a good 20 to 30 minute walk down the road. However, a fellow traveller claimed they managed to get a cab home all the way from the colosseum mid afternoon for 15 euro. Who knows!

Very comfortable room though location is not great.

Traveled to this hotel as part of a contiki tour. On arrival to our room we realized that we had received a single room (another guy on the trip who was travelling solo got the same room type). When we questioned the front desk about this, they said that this was an "European style" double room where the beds are smaller. Luckily we were able to swap rooms around with people as we were in a large group and after a lot of mucking around we finally were in a proper double room. The room wasn't too bad but the service was appalling. It is also very far from town (about 20 minutes). Would not stay here again

Although it seems to be a good hotel with its large rooms and bathrooms, it is a bit far from the city, quiet area, not anybody around the reception after midnight, not very safe, Get off at the the last stop of Rebibbia metro line. Then catch the bus outside on the right side of metro. If you can't, walk some around 1,7 km. to the hotel.

I stayed at this hotel for two nights at the end of a 14 day trip to Italy. This hotel was the only hotel I had problems with. During my stay at this hotel one of the friends on the trip with me was harassed by a group of men also staying in the hotel. The men were then seen trying to use their hotel room keys to try and get into our rooms. I understand the hotel is not at fault for this but the way they handled the situation was horrendous. When confronting the front desk with the problem they claimed they "did not see any men" so would not help us and were then seen joking with the men. The second locks on the room doors did not work so we did not feel safe going to sleep in this hotel. Lastly to top off a wonderful time at this hotel when we returned to our room after a day in Rome our suitcases had been rifled through. Do not stay at this hotel.
