We stayed here as a couple in October 2012, and were suprised by the size of the room, and how light and airy it was. The bathroom was also a good size, however lacked a bath which would be useful after a long days walking, and there was certainly room. The double bed was two singles, but made up using a double sheet which meant they didnt fall apart into two.
Its in a good location- 5 mns walk from termini, from which you can get the train from the airport for 14 euro.
We booked this hotel via jet2 as a package but it worked out cheaper than many of the other surrounding hotels, and having stayed at the Hotel Luce nearby i can say this one was far superior.
Breakfast- at 8am breakfast was good- abundance of sweet pastries, bread, croissants, three types of cereal, meats and cheese, as well as a hot plate with hot dogs,bacon and egg in. However at 7am (when we were told it opened) we found there was NOTHING left, therefore felt this was a let down, as not sure why other guests were allowed in earlier. I assume they only replenish on the hour or so. Coffee was good! orange 'juice' vile- some sort of concentrate.
The room- light and airy with shuttered windows and double glazing that kept the noise out. The TV-one CNNn channel which ceased to work and wasnt really fixed which we were annoyed about. Also the WiFi doesnt work. The minibar or fridge wasnt cold. That said as a base when in Rome it was adequate although a kettle might have been nice. The shower was very good with no shortage of hot water.
Staff- rude! no hello how are you or anything, and she walked off mid sentance as we checked out, breakfast staff also snappy. Also passports are held for duration of stay just behind desk in plain sight- which wasnt always manned when they went off to sort something out, which we felt wasnt too secure.
Lift is tiny and being claustrophobic i didnt use it, and didnt seem to ever be available, taken up by people going to the first floor,
The city tax was payable when we arrived which we were never informed of.
We would stay here again simply for the location and knowing it was a decent bed to come back to.
