“Decent.”
Reviewed 13 December 2012

Great location being so close to Termini. The room is very small but is clean and most of the staff is very friendly. Shower didn't work for us one day and you'll most likely hear the people in the next room over but it's a good enough hotel for the price if you're just looking to rest your head after taking in the sights.

First the good things:
The location is great, close to Termini station and easy to find. The room was clean. Bed was good. The staff is friendly except one.

But,
We asked for a quiet room. We got a room that must be the most noisy: next to the reception, at the street side.

The room was too hot: you can't turn the heater out. It must have been 30 degrees Celsius in the room. The Italian guy lied that he would fix it. The nice maid told us that was impossible because the whole hotel has the same temperature. So we opened the windows at night, but it was really noisy outside. We were told we could not change rooms, even though it was sunday morning and a lot of people had checked out.

The towels are more like bed sheets and smell like vinegar, and one towel had a hole.

The bathroom was so small: you van shower and use the bidet at the same time. The shower was good though!
Bathroom smelt bad.

Breakfast: it's just cookies and coffee/tea. Get your breakfast elswhere. But even better: don't go to this hotel.

This is a budget hotel located near Rome Termini station. Rooms are ok & clean, but there is no fan or air conditioners in the room, also the room had very little ventilation. AC is available at an extra cost of 10 Euro per night.
Considering Rome can be really hot in peak summer months, so spending a night without a fan or AC is really horrible. Also, you can't keep the window open at night as it is situated in a busy street & it's really noisy.
Also note, the hotel is closed between 1 AM- 6 AM. so, you have to reach the hotel by 1 AM at night.
I would not recommend this hotel to anyone traveling in peak summer in Rome.

gentile cliente ringraziamo per la sua email perche' ci da la possibilita' di esprimerci e mostrare quanto meglio la nostra struttura.sono pochissime le camere che non hanno l'aria condizionata e stiamo provvedendo alla risoluzione del problema per tutta la nostra struttura.precisiamo pero' che questo servizio non e' esclusivo per la categoria a cui apparteniamo.ci permettiamo di considerare che le inutili ventole oltre che pericolose e rumorose non risolvono in nessun caso all'abbassamento della temperatura.molti alberghi vi propongono un paliativo oneroso tanto quanto il costo dell'aria condizionata stessa,quindi fate attenzione.la clientela estiva conosce bene il caldo della citta' e propio per questo prenota preventivamente il servizio dell'aria condizionata.ci permettiamo di corregere la sua opinione riguardo ad un costo maggioritario per usufruire al servizio,non e' maggioritario bensi' e' il costo del servizio per un certa tipologia di camera.
la preghiamo di notare che saremmo stati fraudolenti nel caso in cui le avremmo chiesto il costo del servizio non ottenendolo.le nostre migliori offerte sono sempre estese al solo pernottamento lasciando piena liberta' alla clientela di scegliere le opzioni di servizi che la nostra categoria puo' offrire.facciamo notare che gli extra richiesti fanno rimanere comunque i prezzi calmierati rimanendo sempre competitivi.invitiamo la gentile clientela a non vedere solo il prezzo ma a leggere attentamente anche a cosa si prenota poiche' molto spesso con delle piccole differenze si possono avere soggiorni ben piu' gradevoli.ringraziamo nuovamente per averci dato la possibilita' di esprimerci.

Hotel is 2 min's walk from Termini station. Near to main sites and quick access through metro or bus. Mc Donalds near by. Small but Clean room for the price. Sheets and towels replaced daily.
Cons:
1. No Air Condition. Its really Hot.
2. Closed between 1.00am to 6.00am. Plan accordingly.
3. leave/collect keys from reception at 1st floor. (I got a room at 3rd floor)
4. You have to pay everything on 1st day.

Room Tip: If you are fine with all cons. This is a good budget hotel at heart of cIty.

Good location to ancient Rome. The Colosseum is 10 minutes walk, the Termini is 3 minutes. The Hotel is in an old building, lift is operating. The room is dark a bit, basic level, no air condition, in summer take it in consideration! There is no reception from midnight to 6 in the morning. You cannot enter the house gate. The luggage room is 10 euro for leaving the baggages there. Use it, if you want to save time, because at the Termini station there is no left luggage locker, only left luggage office, and the queue is about 30m long. The price is 7-8 euros for 5 hours.
Rome is grate, don't waste any time.

This is a budget hotel but is excellent value - the rooms are large and clean and the shower was good. It is very close to the central train station thus ideal for a short stopover. The street outside is noisy (which previous reviews had warned us about) but there is nothing the hotel can do about it - you just need to block it out :-)
It is in a central location so would be great value for young travellers (who are not as fussy about hard beds etc), particularly with the option of 3 to a room.
The street outside is buzzing with restaurants and market stalls during the day, but feels a bit unsavoury at night - just be sure to lock your room well and keep valuables close to hand.

Reviewed 19 April 2012

Last week (2nd week of April 2012), we've spend three days in this ** hotel. After reading the reviews on this page we were a bit worried about a lot of things. It even made me have doubts about if I wanted to stay here and not just go to a different place.

On arrival there were two very nice English man. No their Englsh wasn't the best but they were very friendly and helpfull. After signing us into the big book they explained us the 'houserules'. We've been reading about these in the reviews as well.

- Leaving roomkey when leaving the hotel
- Receptiondesk closed from 1 - 6. Which means you have to be back in the hotel before 1 or stay out untill 6.
- Breakfast is 5 euro per person per day
- Lugageroom 10 euro per room

When you know these things in advance.... No problem at all. (at least not for us)

We were assigned to a room on the third floor. We took the stairs because the elevator is a bit shabby. (actually I'm just a easilly scared person ;-))
After arriving in our room, we were happily surprised. The room was pretty big and looked clean. We got a double bed, closet and our own bathroom with toilet, shower etc.
It overlooked the streetside and therefor it was a noisy room.

So. If you're looking for a cheap hotel, close to the trainstation (50m), shops and restaurant and about a 20min. walk to the old Rome.... This is the right place. Rome is a busy place with many many tourists. Even an expansive hotel will be noisy.

For the two stars and cheap price this is a lovely place to stay!

To reply to the things I've been reading here:
- we didn't leave any of our money/passport etc in our room and just took it with us. So no robbery here
- yes, the station area is pretty dodgy but I didn't feel unsafe for a second because of all the tourists (so no worries there)
- the beds are really just fine! Clean, big, and no noise (at least not in our room)
- the bathroom was fine and since it was in our room it was clean but just fine. (no smelly pipes)
- no unfriendly staff. Just be nice to them and they'll be nice to you!

Just.... enjoy Rome. Don't expact a 300 euro room and you'll be happily surprised!
