Decent stay - very clean - for renovation room was literally brand new and equipped (only had time to put fridge) - the bathroom very comfortable, clean and full - good breakfast - access to the center of Rome pretty easy with 3 - 4 bus lines and quick (about 15 minutes) - the nearby "neutral" but seemed very safe The renovation was underway did not affect any functionality of the hotel and general accommodation.

When I booked the hotel I knew there might have been SOME refurbishment going on, but to my surprise the whole building (exept the exterior) was stripped apart and was undergoing major refurbishment which, I was told, had been going on for the last 14 months; it was like walking into a building site with dust everywhere, only one lift working and the air in the lobby was unbreathable; not to mention the noise! The first day I even had an unexpected visitor, I had forgotten to lock my room and was trying to take a nap when the door opened without a knock and this man came in!!! I was so tired I didn't even manage to ask for an explanation. But the worst aspect of the room was that whenever someone used the toilet or shower in the upper levels a horrible stench from the sewer system came out of the bathroom and filled the whole room!?!?! Lastly they tell you that breakfast is served until 10:30 but if you go to the breakfast room at 10:05 you will find they have already cleared all the food and closed the door. I could only serve myself to a coffee!! If you can: STAY AWAY FROM THIS HOTEL!!!

Everything was perfect, modern and new. The hotel is about 15-20 mins from the downtown by bus. Back to the hotel there is a supermarket. A hotel jó, modern, most újítják fel, már majdnem készen volt, amikor ott jártunk. A szálló háta mögötti utcában van egy szupermarket, a belváros max. 20 perc busszal, a megálló közel.

We were somewhat shocked to find that the hotel was located outside the city walls, however it was no problem at all. The bus #714 took us directly to and from the main train station making travel in the city very convenient. Moreover the staff was absolutely wonderful. They were very helpful. The only criticism I have is the the breakfast was not the greated...especially the coffee. I'd advise you to stick with the tea.

The rooms are in an old style but clean and comfortable. TV, Safe, fridge and airconditioner are included in the price. The breakfast buffet is really great and the service is friendly and helpful! The hotel is not far away from the trainstation (approx.2km) and you can take the bus. But there is no timetable for the bus that means sometimes you can wait longer for a bus (its all around the city like that)

The emlployees were not really friendly and helpful, every information even basic information about check in, breakfast, check out had to ask, without asking no information had been given. Some maintenance work was in progress every morning from 8-9 am, and we could easily hear other guests talking in the middle of the night even from the other room, also the airconditioner is loud once is switched on, could be because it is very old, so I have to say the hotel is quite noisy for someone who planning to have a rest there. The hotel was clean, and tidy and very spacious, breakfast ok,for the price the quality was just ok, but quite far from the centre, luckily had two direct bus lines to the centre. I reccomend the hotel for families, or people who are not first time visitors in Rome, because the staff is not welcoming and helpful.

Tutto è come descritto sul sito, l'hotel è situato vicino alle fermate del autobus, dunque è facile arrivare in centro in pochi minuti lasciando la macchina al parcheggio. La colazione e abbondante e varia. Le stanze sono silenziose e sono consigliabili per famiglie con bambini. Il rapporto qualità prezzo è ottimo.

I did enjoy staying in the hotel. The only thing that was really annoying is the neighborhood and smell of cigarettes. Some neighbors ( could not understand which ones) where shouting and moving furniture starting from 2am till 7am. That was the only thing that spoiled our staying in this hotel.

La struttura è molto vecchia e necessita di diversi ammodernamenti, soprattutto se pretende di essere un vero 4 stelle. Al banco della reception non c'è mai nessuno, sempre tutti impegnati fuori a fumare. La colazione è di qualità bassa.

i booked 2 days initially, then tried to cancel the second night well before the cancellation cutoff time. the website indicated that i needed to contact the hotel directly to cancel the second night, however, when i did this, the staff didn't know how to do the cancellation. when we showed up, the staff was very unhelpful with regards to the cancellation, saying it had to be done online. we ended up paying for 2 nights, but only staying for one. i would like a refund for the second night.

The Hotel we would describe as functional. The staff were not realy approachable and at times seemed irritated by your questions. We were disgusted at the porn available on the TV in the rooms which our young son discovered and was very unsettled about. The bathroom toilets backed up in the morning which made the room smell of urine, this also kept you awake at night. The hotel is some way out of the city centre with infrequent buses. The breakfast was poor. Would not recommend for families.

The hotel was manned by friendly staff who were helpful. The bar area was clean and the bar manager was lovely. Although the rooms are basic there was still a tv, hairdryer (not that powerful girls) and a mini bar. The location is a little bit out the way however there is a direct bus route to and from the Termin (714) costs you at the most 1 euro! Only down side to my stay was the taxi ordered, through the hotel, to take me to the airport. They dropped us at the wrong one and drove off!! This happened to 2 other groups of our friends so BEWARE!!!
