birthday getaway

Great hotel, only thing that would make it five stars is if the breakfasts were a little better, most things incurred an extra charge which was disapointing, but didnt spoil our stay.

Good hotel with character

The hotel is very close to the train station (less than 10 mins walk) which was important for us with baggage so we very fine with this. The neighborhood around the station isn't the best but the hotel has a fantastic view of the Santa Maria basilica. The common areas (in the pictures) are much grander and fancier than the actual rooms which could use some updating (at least the one we got) Overall it was a good experience. Staff was attentive and the breakfast was good. We had some drinks in the hotel lounges but never tried the dinner.

a lovely hotel

We had a great break based at this hotel The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The room was spacious and clean, but rather hot overnight. We had expected a double bed plus a single, as per e description, but found one double, and although we are very good friends of long standing, we're not that close. The staff subsequently changed it for us and all was well. The roof garden is lovely, and the breakfast typically continental and plenty of it.

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
