    The hotel is located conveniently for visitors so it’s easy to visit most of Rome’s tourist attractions by foot. I took the bus for the Vatican visit only. The hotel is close to the central transport station (Termini).

    The breakfast is Italian style – coffee, bread, butter, jam, croissants. No cheese, no ham, no eggs …. very disappointing breakfast. The breakfast room looks like a poor cantina. The hotel room is very small – aprox 12 m2. The tv is really small and very few stations were available – 3-4 Italians, 1 French (tv5) and 1 German (EuroSport), no English station. The street facing rooms are quite noisy starting from the very early hours of the morning till late at night.

    The terrace

    The receptionists were depressed and not helpful at all. The rooms are not soundproof and after 7am its impossible to sleep. The frigobar and safe didnt work and the shower is very small

    Fabulous

    It was close to the terminus, trams and buses. The recepton staff were very helpful There is a lovely garden where you could relax and have a drink

    I like to have facilities to make a hot drink in the room and there was none. The lifts were very poor for a modern hotel being small and slow.The breakfast menu was very limited i.e no fruit nor honey and the rolls ran out very quickly

    Very good

    Well located for bus and tram. Fair range of reasonably priced restaurants near by. The availablity of evening dinner at the Hotel if required. Pleasant terrace bar. Hotel in good condition with pleasant decor. Free use of safe in room. Tea making (but only tea!) facilities in room. All staff were very friendly, welcoming and helpful.

    Breakfast was barely acceptable and should be improved. Beverages including fruit juices were machine provided and were very poor quality. Some guests may find traffic noise in rooms at front of the Hotel rather loud, particularly if windows are open.

    Fabulous

    The reception was able to speak a lot of languages fluently. The breakfast was much better than we expected. We got so much croissants, rolls, coffee, and softdrinks as we wanted. It was possible to leave the luggage at the hotel during the departure-day for free.

    The air conditioner was a little bit to loud during the night, but cold enough.

    The reception staff were friendly and efficient, The regular barman in the lounge was very efficient and humourous but the young barman could not wait to close the bar and had frequent arguments with his "girlfriend" in front of guests.

    The breakfast menu was the poorest I have encountered in over fifty years staying hotels anywhere in Europe.Since we last stayed at the hotel four years ago, it has changed to catering for large groups of students who,in the main, have few manners consistingly blocking the main entrance and monopolising the lift.

    The location of the hotel is very convenient - very close to the Termini Station and to the oldest Ice-cream cafe in Rome :) It takes 25 minutes to get to the Colosseum and the Roman Forum on foot. Vittorio Emmanuelle Metro Station as well as Manzoni Station are the nearest ones. The staff mostly can speak English (which is really a great advantage, a great deal of Italians don't), rooms are cleaned every day in the morning, towels changed. The bed is snowwhite, very clean. There is a mini-bar in the fridge. At night a conditioner is turned on (but at 7 in the morning it's turned off). The view from the window is on the The Aurelian Walls.

    The breakfast is awful: one type of cheese (some cheap sort), one type of ham (as well), undrinkable coffee and juices from the automats, some stale croissants, cornflakes with milk. The staff in the breakfast area is cunning! On Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday cheese and ham is on the buffet, but on Friday and Saturday they will say that it is extra - one has to be firm, then they'll bring it on one's table!! One day we came back to our room and the housekeeping had forgotten to close the door!! Our room had been open the whole day!! It is almost impossible to catch the lift: there are 2 of them and one is absolutely ancient. The shower cabin is extremely small and after taking a shower, the water is everywhere in the bathroom.

    The hotel staff were friendly & helpful, also the hotel location was nice.

    The breakfast was extremely poor, not even one kind of cheese or any cold cuts. Just some cereals, jam, butter, bread, coffee & some juices.
