The hotel is on the junction of two busy roads and there is a lot of traffic noise that dies out around 1100 (although we were not there over a weekend). A bit better soundproofing of the windows might help. Our bathroom (no experience of others) flooded after every shower. The screen was pointless.

On the plus side, the hotel is clean and comfortable, and the bed was particularly nice. Breakfast was simple but substantial, with breads, meats, cheeses, fruit etc - everything you would expect. No restaurant, but we found a couple of cracking and reasonably priced restaurants nearby. One of them was recommended by the hotel.

The staff were very helpful and a good standard of English was spoken.

There is a Metro station opposite the hotel that is only two stops from Termini station.

Generally we were happy with the hotel and would recommend it if you can take the traffic noise (note: we always sleep with the window open).

The hotel is conveniently located just in front an underground station, have medium sized room (have a very good breakfast, I liked an excellent "ricotta") but it is very very noisy.
In spite of the double window glazing, at around 6am the tram starts going and you will hear perfectly the nice sound of the steel wheels on the steel track while the tram turns at moderate speed. This, and other traffic noise goes on till over midnight.

Room Tip: Avoid the rooms on via Emanuele Filiberto on the tramways,

Stayed here for four nights during April.

First off, the location of the hotel is good, A metro line runs right outside the hotel and takes you to the centre within a few minutes. The hotel itself if fairly simple, breakfast but no other meals served and a basic bar. Facilities are ok, but it would struggle to justify its four star rating when stacked up against hotels in the UK or US. The breakfast was alright, reasonable choice of cold foods with possibility of toast and boiled eggs. Room reasonably spacious, bed relatively comfortable.

This review would have been a 2 or 3 rating had we only stayed for one or two nights.

The safe in the room says it is the size of a laptop - it is definitely not. My 10" tablet only just went in. To get it in it had to go in at an angle with the case removed. The safe would have been ok to put your wallet in to keep safe or a few bits and bobs, but don't count on it for a laptop or decent sized tablet or netbook, it won't go in.

The rooms are not individually air conditioned. The control on the wall is just for show. If you set the temperature to cool it just flashes and nothing happens. The day we checked in the temperature in our room was 32 degrees. After 30 minutes with the window open it dropped to 28. When we complained we were told that if we put the air conditioning on the fan setting it would provide air conditioning. It didn't, it just provided an extremely noisy fan. Our first night was spent in a room at 25 degrees with the window wide open, and really noisy traffic. The next day we complained, and were told that the air conditioning was in fact broken and that an engineer was coming to fix it. When we returned we checked and it still did not work. We complained again and were told there was no manager on site and we would have to speak to him in the morning. After refusing to move unless something was done, finally we were promised an engineer would come. We went out for dinner. When we returned we were told it was fixed. We put the control onto air conditioning, still flashing. However, we found out the the air conditioning is in fact centrally controlled and the fan just blows the air conditioning into the room. So the temperature was around 23/24 degrees with the fan on full pelt.

Traffic noise is bad, but the windows seemed to cope with that once they were closed.

Had we only stayed the first two nights and not demanded the air conditioning was fixed this rating would have been much lower. On reflection, the air conditioning being broken was probably something outside the hotel's control, although I notice another review about a month ago saying the same thing.

We wouldn't return, but the hotel was close to things we wanted and the room was ok. Probably its a 3.5 out of 5, but lets give it the benefit of the doubt.

Room Tip: Stay on a lower floor if you are worried about the air con, the temperature on higher floors was much greater.

Just a word of advice, this is not a 4 star hotel by any standard. It was clean, two stops from the main train station and several good restaurants are nearby, but don't think for one second this is a glamorous and world standard 4 star hotel. Having stayed in many hotels and hostels around the world, I would say this hotel is only a step up from a private room in a youth hostel. The room are incredibly small, the breakfast is adequate without being great. Unfortunately, when you book a 4 star hotel you expect the same as you would in North America or Australia. This simply isn't the case. For the price I paid, I would recommend that for a small amount more, try and book into one of the chain hotels as they are more close to a 4 star hotel than this place. Overall the hotel was average and for the money spent I was very disappointed.

Room Tip: Look at another hotel in the city. If you are spending all this money to travel to Europe make sure you get a hotel that is more in line with your expectations. Do your research and look at other options.

Friendly staff, clean rooms with a comfy bed, good breakfast (already missing the fresh orange juice) and great location. Metro station directly opposite, for when your feet can't carry on. The metro is surprisingly easy to use, much easier than the London tube. We only needed to use this to get to The Vatican, otherwise we would still be trying to find it now...

Walk in the opposite direction to the touristy parts to find good food at reasonable prices. The further away the better!

We both fell in love with Rome and will definitely return.
