Not a 4 star hotel

Our bathroom had mold. It's never a good sign when you go on the hunt for a bottle of bleach upon arrival. Pros- Great housekeeping staff. Supreme gelato shop next door! Continental breakfast on the roof with amazing views. Short walk to Termini station-transportation hub. Twin beds were comfortable. Great water pressure in the shower. Beautiful bird singing in the courtyard outside our windows. Great A/C. Plenty of closet storage. Housekeeping never woke us up. Built-in radio on the bathroom (from the 50's??) Kettle with the makings for tea and instant coffee. Complimentary shower gel and lotion Complimentary slippers Thick towels. Cons: Mold in the bathroom Unfriendly hotel staff - not one, "hello, how are you?" greeting over an 8 day span. That was pretty unusual. Had to hold the blow dryer button for power-bring you own. Bathroom tap in the bathroom squealed. No outlet converters in the room-bring your own or buy at the front desk for $3 each, which is cheap enough. We didn't care for the restaurants around the hotel. No view from our room-we faced the courtyard=other buildings. Tiny fridge (had to remove their pricey stock to put anything of ours in it). We tend to see the glass half-full but honestly, we wouldn't stay here again. It's definitely not a 4 star hotel.

General review!

The hotel is very nice, in a good location, near the train station and very close to a tourist place St Maria Maggiore, with a good view from terrace where you have breakfast or drink something in the evening. We had a big room, better from the one we saw in the pictures of the booking site, very clean, without any noises despite we were in the first floor. The sheets were changing every day, and it was a nice lady who was waiting to make the room till we leave. The breakfast was very rich and all the stuff are delicious. We were having such a good breakfast and as we had to go around Rome all the day, our next meal was in the evening. The only think was an odor coming from the bathroom, mostly from the toilette or may be from the discharge tubes. But if you close the WC or the bathroom door and open the window for a while, everything is gone. We booked the hotel two days before the departure and it was a good price, but if you book earlier you can get a better price for a 4 star hotel. Also the buses of city-sight tours had a stop in front of the hotel. People in the hotel are very helpful for everything, there was a Wi-Fi but we didn't try, no time for the internet, but there is also a internet corner where you can work as you were home.

Excellent Hotel for Visiting Rome!

After staying at this hotel for almost a week, I can confidently say that this Hotel was superb in terms of location (across the street from one of the major basilicas and about a 15 minute walk to the colosseum), cleanliness, and value. The breakfast buffet at the rooftop restaurant, which is included, was excellent, although some variety could be added from day to day as the only possible suggestion for improvement. The staff was friendly and the only issue we had was with the wifi, which worked perfectly until the last couple days of our stay when it was not functioning and not repaired despite our complaint. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and I would highly recommend this hotel.

After visiting many different restaurants near the hotel, I can confidently say that L'Angolodi Napoli, located at Via Agostino De Pretis, 77/a was one of the best in terms of customer service, quality of food and overall value. The restaurant is only a ten minute walk from the hotel and is great for both couples and families. The staff was friendly and not pushy like many other restaurants in the area. I would highly recommend it if you are visiting Rome.

staff is awesome

Stayed 2 nights after a cruise. Located 2 or so blocks from Termini train station. Arrived prior to check in time of 1pm and was allowed to leave luggage at no extra fee. Took the opportunity to sightsee using one of the sightseeing buses. They pick up by Santa Maria Maggiore which is the church right across the street from this hotel, although the pick up spot is basically 2 blocks away. Original reservation was for 1 night but needed to extend a day due to flight cancellation. Staff was very accommodating. They arranged for airport taxi at 3:30am for an early morning flight they also packed us a breakfast. The breakfast they serve (included in hotel price) has a variety of choices ie. pastries, salami, boiled eggs, breads, cereals, juices, yoghurt. Note, the elevator does not go all the way up to the roof breakfast/dinner area, you have to climb a number of stairs. Room we had had a balcony but didn't face the church. You could still see the church if you went out on the balcony. Old world style rooms with funky features like heated towel bar and make up mirror, also blow dryer. Bed was comfortable and the room walls were covered in a patterned, padded material which was very pretty. They have a computer in the lobby which you can use free of charge to check in and print boarding passes. Would definitely stay there again.

Great central location

Great central location a few minutes from Termini where the airport bus arrives and easy walking distance to the attractions in the old Roman centre. For the Spanish Steps/Trevi/Vatican you can either enjoy a longer stroll or take a direct Metro which is very close to the hotel. Our room was a bit small but clean and nicely furnished. It was also well insulated from the city traffic but not from the noisy lift unfortunately. Breakfast was ok but no more than that. Staff were friendly and English speaking. Would be happy to use again.

Try the 'Old Marconi' which is supposedly an Irish pub. Although it does sell Guinness and Kilkenny bitter it's much more of a restaurant. We had 2 great meals there including very cheap and decent house wine. Hiro was great and I assume he must be the only Japanese waiter speaking perfect English in Rome.

Excellent breakfast and great location.

Great hotel within walking distance of the ancient city. Located only 4 or 5 blocks from the main train/bus station and one block from a hop on/ hop off bus stop. We were three people and were given a room in the executive section of the hotel - a separate building two doors down, up one flight of stairs and just off a charming courtyard. Our room had two single beds and a pullout sofa bed, large bathroom with jacuzzi tub, table , fridge and dishwasher (!) Perhaps this section had once been apartments . Buffet Breakfast was included and featured a large selection of pastries, cold meats, fresh fruits, cheeses, quiche, and cereals . This was all served in their beautiful rooftop restaurant with a wonderful view of the city. Personnel at the front desk were extremely helpful and accommodating . I would happily return to this hotel.
