“Disappointed”
Reviewed 20 September 2011

It was more expensive than others in walking distance and offered far less in service, breakfast. Although my room was larger than expected the double bed for which I was paying was only two single beds pushed together and covered by a double sheet. The divide was very noticeable so I still only had the use of a single. Breakfast was okay, enough said. I have often read "the shower was tiny" well now I know what they meant. I could not bend down, I had to squat to pick up my toiletries. Okay I am 6.3' so maybe I'm picky. I also experienced an onslaught of bites around my ankles. Not sure what they were but they itches like crazy.

Prior guest had smoked in the room we were staying in and it smelled horrible. The room was spacious and comfortable. The bathroom was small but seemed standard for European hotels. Freah towels were supplied everyday. Wifi was available which was a huge plus for us and easy to find off the Spanish steps metro stop. the breakfast was great and fresh cappuccinos to order. And the computer was nice and accessible with a printer. I would reccomend even though the room smelled like smokey. The reception was super friendly as well!

Stayed at this hotel for 4 nights. We had a double room with a shared terrace which was very clean and reasonably spacious. The terrace was a pleasant bonus. The location was very convenient and within walking distance to shops, restaurants, the Spanish Steps and Metro station. Breakfast and free WiFi were included as well. The breakfast was simple but sufficient. We used the airport pick-up service arranged by the hotel and it went smoothly. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend this hotel.

Just spent three nights here with my wife and 17 year old son and would find it difficult to call out any major issues with this hotel. It's perhaps a little expensive for a three star and the breakfast could have a bit more choice but other than that it was perfect for a short break in Rome.
Location is excellent, just a short walk from the metro and the rooms are very comfortable. We had room 14 made up asa triple so it was a bit of a squeeze but it would make a fine double, with a good size bathroom. Air conditioning works fine although it does rumble a bit but I guess that is expected as the hotel wasn't purpose built with it in.
The staff were friendly and pleasant although we never really had to put them to the test.
Whilst we used the metro, there's plenty of sights within walking distance, such as, The Spanish Steps, Trivoli fountain, Pantheon and we even walked back from the Vatican, which was very pleasant along the river.
The area is lively at night, with plenty of shops and restaurants but we didn't here any street noise as we were at the back of the hotel.
All in all a good little hotel, cleanly presented and ideal for a short break in Rome.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back as I guess the ront rooms could be noisy at night.
