So me and my partner have just returned after staying a week at the one park hotel, at first i was very worried about staying here purely because we are students and this is what our budget could allow for us.... However upon arrival (after our transfer FINALLY found the place) we were greeted by a rather smiling receptionist who spoke to me by name before i even told him who i was, whichi thought was lovely. We explained that we were hungry as it had been a long day and was the restaurant still open, so before checking in he took our bags for us and said we should go eat and when we return our keys and luggage will be waiting, which i thought was lovely....
The food in the restaurant was lovely (and lots of it), it felt like proper home cooked italian food, which is what we wanted... The only problem was after our first night eating in the hotel a party of 60 had booked the restaurant for the rest of stay meaning we couldn't eat their again, which we found dissapointing as for 15euros 4 courses was a bargain.
The actual room itself was clean and tidy, with all the appropriate features e.g. air-conditioning, bed, desk, bathroom, towells, soaps etc and it had a tv which was a surprise to us(even though we found 2 english speaking channels, 6 and 39) .
The walk to the train station was not far at all, less than 10minutes and has a lovely little bar/cafe next door to it which we would sit and have a drink in before the train..
The train must have a ticket purchased before at the local shop and then have it validated in the machine at the station, which we did for the first three days.. Until the 4th day we had no change for a ticket so decided to buy on board (YOU CANNOT BUY ON BOARD) and therefore we travelled in and out of rome for free.
The road to the station is a pain to cross, as when the lights say its ok to walk cars still try and drive along, however we found if you stand your ground and cross they stop as they know we have right of way...
Overall i thought this hotel was more than we expected friendly staff, nice food, clean rooms and breakfast was basic, but i wasn't expecting fancy with the price we had paid, simply cereal, cheese, ham, bread and fruit and yoghurt, which sutied me..
I would definately reccomend this hotel if your looking for somewhere to simply sleep (which is what we did) after spending hours in Rome it is a nice place to come back and just sleep...
Only concern of mine is do not travel with children or people that can't sleep due to noise, airport is very close and hear planes and the bar next to the hotel plays loud music thursday-monday evenings.
