The owners of this hotel don't advertise it as well as they might. The impression I got from their website is that it's for backpackers (triple room etc.) however it's actually a perfectly nice place and perfect for a trip to Rome where you intend to use the room for sleeping and not much else. Car parking is a slight issue. Their website states that you can park in the car park directly opposite the hotel. There is no car park. You need to park on the street. This is OK as it’s not a bad area however space is severely limited so place your hire car up against the building, fold in the mirrors and hope for the best! The hotel is actually one floor of a multi-storey building containing multiple businesses – all office-based, no light industry or anything that would cause a poor night’s sleep. This means arriving at a nondescript building with no outward signs that it contains a hotel so a map or satnav are essential. Once you arrive you’ll need to buzz in using the intercom and take your suitcases to the required floor in the world’s smallest elevator (actually quite funny). While this might all seem a little unusual it’s really fine as the building is clean and safe as a result of this arrangement. The rooms are OK – smallish, but with three beds you can dump your suitcases on one and have enough room to move around. The bathroom was not the highest quality but perfectly functional. Breakfast in included but you might like to avoid it and head to a local café instead. The staff were really nice and helpful, even to the point of placing the unwrapped muffins and toast on your plates with their hands. Just something we weren’t used to. As a base for a one-night whistle-stop visit to Rome it was perfectly fine. No frills, just super-close to the attractions we wanted to see on this trip before heading out the next day to Tuscany. Oh, and they have free postcards which I thought was a really nice touch.
