Stayed here for two nights as a couple between July 6th - 8th 2014 in room 103. The hotel is in a fantastic location. We caught the shuttle bus from Marco Polo airport to Piazzale Roma bus station and was surprised at how close the hotel was. We walked across the main bridge, past the train station and saw the hotel sign straight away on the left, it's literally a straight road.
The room was very clean, looked nice and the air conditioning was fantastic throughout (it was 30 degrees for the duration of our stay so this was welcomed!). However, the 'double bed' claimed in the booking was simply two single beds pushed together with double bed sheets over the top of them. The shower was also very temperamental - it would be hot for 5 seconds, cold for 10 seconds, hot for another 5 seconds... etc. The breakfast was fine but we were not expecting much anyway.. plenty of bread, cheese, fruit etc. which was ideal as my girlfriend is a vegetarian.
The hotel is a 30 second walk from Ferrovia water bus station and Santa Lucia train station.
Be wary of the 'baggage room' if you arrive early, it is literally a gap underneath the stairs and not actually a room.
The hotel lobby is nice and the decor gives the hotel a nice touch. But WiFi is 3 euros an hour and only works in the lobby, not your room.
We paid 180 euros for 2 nights which I think was very reasonable for the location and I would recommend this hotel for those travelling on a budget.
