Comfortable, friendly and well placed

A very friendly hotel and very well placed for the railway station and S.Maria Major. A comfortable room - immaculately clean and quiet. The breakfast was good but a little dull after a week!

3days in Rome

The hotel is in a great location, and the view from our 5th floor room was stunning. Hotel is well situated a short walk from the main Termini train station and the sight seeing buses stop almost opposite the hotel (to the side of the church). The highlight of this hotel is definitely the sky bar - unfortunately one night it was closed due to a thunderstorm. Made the most of it on the others days tho. Rooms are a little dated decoration wise but in keeping with classical style of hotel. Be warned that they do not allow irons in the room so you'll need to pay for a pressing service. All said its a good choice for a short city break

Sightseeing tip: Long walk from hotel

At the colosseum the same ticket got us in the Forum too. Beware "guides" will tell you that you pay twice as it's not clear. At the Vatican museum definitely get a fast pass if going peak hours as queues are hours long! You can't fast pass the Vatican itself tho as that's a seep rate queue

Great city hotel

The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The hotel has fantastic views of the city from the roof top dining/bar/lounge area, where you can see the colosseum, and the Vatican dome. It is well positioned, within a 5 minute walk of the train and bus termini, making it very easy to travel around the city; to and from Fiumicino airport; and within walking distance of many Roman sites, churches, shopping areas, markets, restaurants, and cafés. A super place from which you can explore the delights of Rome.

Great family holiday, if you enjoy history and walking

What a great location for all the major attractions in Rome, View from the roof garden/restaurant were stunning, the staff were very friendly and helpful, the hotel was clean and bedding and towels were changed daily, all in all we have no complaints about this hotel and would happily stay there again. The bus tours that are available are not always value for money, as although you can get on and off whenever you want for the duration of the ticket, if you are planning to visit the Vatican city I would recommend a taxi rather than buy a tour ticket at this is a place you will spend most of the day, however, the tour guides although slightly more expensive are definably worth it as they cut out all the cueing which could be hours, and they offer an explanation of what you a re looking at and the things to notice, Our personal experience on this holiday was a very positive one, but it is not a holiday for those who are not prepared or able to walk for long periods of time

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

there is a local supermarket about 2 mins walk from the hotel with local prices, which is a huge difference to buying from the other supermarkets, unfortunately we only discovered this the day before we left

Great Stay!

Nice, hotel, very clean, rooms were quiet. Liked the location, not far from the train, good place to catch the tour buses and a taxi stand was close. The breakfast / restaurant on the roof was good and the views were amazing. The staff was great always available to answer questions, give us directions or set up transport for us. I would recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to the area.

Bit expensive for what it is

I stayed for 3 days at this hotel and it is very well located, 20 minutes walk from the Colosseum and right next to a nice plaza with gorgeous view, however I feel like that is the only reason they charge that much. The room was ok but was quite small, maybe that is the standard in Europe but I felt like it could have been twice as big. Also they don't allow you to bring any food/drinks from the outside, so you have to use their very expensive mini bar if you want a snack without going out. It was my first trip in Europe so maybe that is the standard but I felt like it was too expensive for what it really was.
