“Great room, powerful shower, very comfortable and clean”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2011

The hotel is located a little outside of the city in a residential area. To go into the city we used the buses, bus stop is about 200m from hotel, basically a short walk, and the bus ride to main station takes about 15-20 minutes which is pretty good. Bus ticket costs about €1, pretty good price too.

We had a ensuite double room, the bed was 2 singles put together, but we didn't feel the gap at all. The bed was really comfortable, the size of super-king size, which was very spacious. It was quiet. It has air-condition, which is a must-have in Rome. Bathroom is clean, the best thing is the power shower in a good size cubicle, best shower I ever had! We both enjoyed the powerful shower inmensely.

Facilities in the room include a safe, which is very handy. A mini fridge. A phone on a desk and a TV that we could only find 1 english channel - BBC world news, but it didn't bothered us so much. What is missing is tea/coffee making facilities. And no slippers were provided. There are night stands with lamps on each side of the bed. Very clean, modern room. The room was made up everyday, though they didn't vacuum the floor during our stay.

The complimentary breakfast was limited but decent enough. There were scramble eggs, boil eggs, bacon, ham and salami, yogurt, horrible bread, but 3 different types of croissants, butter and jam, and cereals. Americano coffee and tea were also available. We found out on our last day that you can request the waiter to make proper coffee such as cuppocino and lattes for you :( I would say the breakfast was alright.

Now come to the helpfulness of stuff, overall they were friendly and helpful, I had called reception for extra pillows and they were brought up to us. On my last day, I had asked the reception to call my transfer company for confirmation, and it was done for me. The only problem I had was on my first day there, I came down to the reception as I had some questions, to find her chatting away outside on her cellphone for at least 20 minutes even though there were 2 people sitting there who obviously wanted her help. May be she was on her break but there was no other stuff there at that moment.

There is also free internet access in the lobby (1pc). I could also use my iphone with the free WIFI in the room, just ask the reception for the password.

All in all, it was a very pleasant experience with the hotel. If we were to return to Rome, we would definitely stay there again. Would also recommend to friends.

It's a bus ride from the central bus station, and a 14.00 euro per person train ride to the airport. A very pleasant stay. Clean room, helpful staff, very nice hotel. (Shame the fridge wasn't working).

The hotel was great. Staff were friendly and very helpful, they gave us directions and sugestions on how to get about the city.
The room was spot on, clean and well decorated. The shower was massive.
The location of the hotel was good, away from the city center but easy to get into the city by using the bus (84 Bus) which takes you right in to the center.
Public transport is cheep, and can get you close to the big sights. we used the metro to get to the vatican. We also walked alot. Finding that it was easy to map read around the city,(tip: you dont need to shell out on expensive maps, the hotel gave us a paper map, looks a bit like a kid drew it but does the job)
Food at the hotel was great, and kept us going for the day.

My wife and I went to Rome for 4 days from the 24th July 2011 and stayed at the above hotel. The real reason I have voted this to being 4 stars (very good), is because of the location of the hotel to the transpot links.
Just to get a few things straight first - there is nothing wrong with this hotel at all. It was clean, the rooms decently sized both bedroom and bathroom, very good shower (no bath) and the staff were very helpful and pleasant. However this is not what we would call a 4 star hotel and probably actually a 3 star. We had no problem with noise and in fact was a very queit part of town (if not the most dramatic) and therefore sleeping was not an issue as some have faced. Breakfast was as expected in mainland Europe, cereals (warm milk though), bread, crossiants and fruit etc - we actually opted to go elsewhere as it was not the best. The hotel is certainly very decently priced compared to those a bit closer to the centre of Rome or right amongst the historic sights, especially if you do not mind a bit more of a journey. We used this hotel as a base only and spent very little time in it - if you are thinking of doing the same I can not see any reason why this hotel would not suit.
As for the travelling it is literally a minute walk to the nearest bus stop (turn left out of the hotel and on the same side of the road) and take the 86 bus to the main station called Termini. The bus ride to Termini is about 20-25 minutes and here you can get any other bus, tram or the underground to your desitnation. Of course travel time here depends on where you are going but for example, Termini to the Colloseum on Metro Line B is two stops away and about another 10 minutes on and the Vatican City is on the Metro Line A, about 10-15 minutes. You can also from the hotel walk about two minutes up to the end of the road and turn left and here you will see a concrete island and opposite a bus stop. The double sized bus (90 or 90D) picks up and drops off here (use the concrete island side to get to Termini) and is a bit shorter in journey time but a lot more crowded. Either way this makes the hotel very accessible to the main part of Rome and its sights. It is not in the centre of town but the money that could be saved on hotel for the sake of a 20-25 minute extra journey was well worth it, to us at least. We did not travel more than 45 minutes to any of our destinations and once at one, they are all very close to one another. It may have been nice to go back and freshen up before going out in the evening again but with how busy we were this was not a concerning factor to us at all and we only returned at the end of the day to go to bed.
Rome itself at this time of year was quite warm but never felt overly hot to be sight-seeing and is quite busy but again never so much so it put us off. If you know cities like London in the UK, Rome will seem fairly quite, particularly on the roads - we were never held up in traffic jams.
Just a bit of advice on the tavelling too, particualrly concerning getting to and from the airport, as things are not overly well advertised/labelled! From the airport (we used Fiumicino airport) you can get a coach (go right down to bus stop A or 1, which is turn right out of terminal 3 and it is at the end), which is 6 euros each to get to a main station (I can not recall the name of this one), where you can take the underground to Termini. This can also be done on the way back. Now you can buy a Roma Pass which covers all metro, trams and buses in central Rome for 25 euros (will not cover the journey to the airport once passed the border of the card) and this lasts for 3 days. It also gets you into 2 museums for free (first 2 you visit) and discounts at other museums you visit, as long as they participate (for the example the Colloseum does). Or if you are unsure of your plans and what you will be visitng then you can buy an all day pass (covering all transport methods named above) for 4 euros each. The reason I mention this is because at the airport if you have not done your research this will not be obvious and you may come across a train that takes you directly from the airport to termini, which is very efficient but costs 30 euros each (that is not return!) - we did not spend this amount on all the travelling we did in Rome, let alone for just one trip! If you struggle to get back to the airport using the shuttle bus, take the metro (line B) and go to the stop Circo Massimo and come out of the underground - to your left is another concrete island, where bus 3 will take you to Trastevere (last stop) and here you can take the train to the airport for a far more reasonable 8 euros each. Taxis are expensive, the Metro does not cover the area like the underground in London does and closes at 21:00 on every night but Satrurday, although is useful. The buses really go everywhere and are quite clear where they stop, if you know where you want to go.

I stayed there with my family for a week in July and absolutely loved this place. The room (triple) we had was spacious and beds comfortable. The room was located on the top floor of the hotel & it provided us with a spacious terrace were we were able to have 'picnics' or sunbathing sessions undisturbed. There are shops not far away from the hotel were you can buy local products and bus stops that take to the Rome center. It is very convenient and we found it better than staying in the Rome center as we were able to try pizza in places were only the locals know and go to. There is a park nearby with a bar were lots of young people gather every night for a drink. Good if you like drinking a beer outside. The staff is extremely helpful and breakfast, although nothing exceptional, will set you out for a day. Great choice!
