“Impossible to sleep - Noisy!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2012 via mobile

We were part of a group and we were in different buildings. Our room was around the corner on a road perpendicular to the hotel's address. The room was nice, the bed comfortable, the bathroom was modern and the shower had hot water (although we did manage to run it out when we first arrived - only one person had managed a short shower). That being said I'd have no problem staying here again if it weren't for the noise. Our room was above a bar and on a Friday night it was open until 4am, it was extremely noisy and there was nothing that could be done. It was pretty impossible to get to sleep and stay asleep with the talking, laughing and shouting going on outside your window -it was although these patrons were in our room. If management want people to be happy and stay longer they need to do something about the soundproofing of these rooms. That being said we had friends who stayed in the building by reception, who enjoyed their room and had no noise to contend with. Book at you own peril.

Stayed April 2012

Odd because the hotel is in different building with the reception, confusing at first, the reception is on the second floor, more like an apartment, but overall is okay, we got nice room (double room), the room is wide enough and clean, not sure the other rooms, I couldn't find any heater. We booked this hotel because its price, cheap enough and stayed for 2 nights. Not very close to Roma Termini Station but it was okay to walk.

We stayed here as it was close to the station but it was a long walk. There is no phone, our room was in a different building. Breakfast at cafe nearby. Had to ring bell to get into building where reception was. Elevator didn't go to our floor. Twin room was one double and one single in small room with little to make it pleasant. Bathroom had been modernized. Mobile candid not do much. Wouldn't stay here again.

Well, when I stayed there, our bathroom was dirty all the time and there weren't enough outlets. There was no breakfast included in the price, no kitchen and no free Internet conexion. Staff was rude and made me pay 2 more euro per night because of a "new tax". Besides, every day there were somebody to wake up the rest of the people in the room and, of coure, staff didn't care about that.

I paid 45 euros per night, which actually compares very favorably to 16-18 euros that are asked at hostels in Rome for a night stay in a dormitory!!
Honestly, even with no free Internet, this hotel is a very good place to stay if you come for a weekend!
AND!!!! do NOT MISS - having followed our noses one evening, we discovered an amazing place - bakery / pasticherria - just around the corner - Sorchetta Doppio Schizzo, via Cernaia 47! The owner, Antonio, makes the most amazing and varied croissants, and other Italian delicatessen! We ended up spending there all mornings for breakfast and evenings for pizza!

This is without comparison the absolute worst hotel we have ever stayed in. Not only are the room totally below even the most basic expectations, but the staff are uninterested and lax. But by far the worst thing about this hotel is that the staff cannot be trusted. We received a brand new credit card prior to leaving Australia and used it only once- at the Hotel Il Papavero when we booked in on the day we arrived. The next time we attempted to use the card it had been cancelled due to fraudulent use. Someone in the 24 hour period between us booking into the hotel had logged up over $3000 worth of internet shopping charges. Also a staff member actually tried to steal 10 euros from us by pretending we had given him a 10 euro note instead of a 20 euro note. UNBELIEVABLE!! Avoid these shifty people and this dingy little rat hole of a hotel at all costs!

We stayed here on the first day of our trip and the last day. It was like two different experiences. The first day we were put in a building a good 1/4 mile from the hotel's location near the train station. The room was the size of a closet, the TV did not work, it was noisy, the bed was only 5 foot long, and the bathroom (if you could call it that, smelled awful. I was stuck with the last night so I dreaded coming back. When we arrived for our last night I complained and we were then put in another location around the corner from there office which was a world of difference. Believe me still not plush (for 80 euros you cannot expect much) but nothing like the first room. Moral of the story - DO NOT let them put you near the train station for YOUR CONVENIENCE as I was told by the individual that spoke English. The breakfasts were at snack bars across the street with a voucher for a roll and coffee. Would I stay here again - probably not. I would probably eat the higher cost and stay at the Hotel Raffaello (heaven).
