    Location

    Rooms were very noisey. Both noise from the rooms next door could be heard easily as well as traffic noise being very loud even though we were on the 6th floor!

    Great location near the central train station and a good base to explore the city. The staff were very helpful. The rooms were very nice, if not a little bit on the small size. But very clean.

    Nothing.

    The hotel was very close to train terminal and easy to find. Hotel staff were welcoming and helpful and gave good advice. Rooms were very clean comfortable and quiet. Breakfast was lovely lots of variety and always being restocked so you were not left with old food. It was nice to come in after a long hot day and be able to get a refreshing drink in the bar. Would recommend this hotel for anyone thinking of visiting Rome.

    Good

    The room was nice but did not have a view not that many rooms in Rome would have a view. It also had free internet in the room.

    The staff were very rude & unhelpful. Upon checkin we were told that our room did not exist and they were not appolagetic at all. The staff at breakfast time were very rude & unwelcoming. They started packing up breakfast even before 10.30am. I saw some patrons turn up right on 10.30 and they were told to go to the bar & order a meal. Althought the bathroom looked nice the water in the shower poured out which became annoying having to mop up the water. I dont mind a few splashes but the shower we had the water just poured out.

    Superb

    Close to Termini, Room was large, nice bathroom, desk, TV,clean, Brekfast was very nice in a larger room

    AC was not cold. did not match the thermostat. Only one staff member spoke English and at one point about 12 people need him so I had to leave the hotel and come back. Instructions about the internet were not clear, They said they had WIFI, then I needed to get a password from the desk. Then I eventually found out the LAN line in the room is the only internet but that was not clear from the staff or any info in the room

    Fabulous

    General service was good and food (breakfast) was good. I found the reception staff a bit tetchy on arrival - about 10:00pm on Friday 18th.Room was excellent.

    I found the glass shelf over the foot wash to be a hazzard as I hit my head off it several times.Air conditioning needs to be explained on arrival as controls vary from hotel to hotel

    Very good

    Location ( Very near to the Termini Station) around 5 minutes walking. Free Wi-Fi. Computer and printer in the lobby available to all guest. Clean Room.

    Room is kinda Small. Bathtub is bad. Breakfast is so bad. Staff was not helpful at all (I asked for and adapter to charge my laptop and cell phone the didnt have and they didnt even try to look for one) I had to buy one for 8 euros across the street from the hotel. I asked for a 2 hours late check out they didnt give me. Again Breakfast is so bad. Better not to take breakfast. Mini bar is very small. No safe in the room I had to leave my stuff at the reception before going out to visit the city.

    The reception staff were very helpful and spoke perfect English. There is a luggage porter which was handy for us a family of 4. The rooms were modern, air conditioned and clean. The breakfast had a good variety of hot and cold food and there was a bar where you could order a cup of tea for your room. We paid 50euro to extend our check out until 3.30 because we had to return our hire car to Rome airport and get back to Termini station by 4.00pm. This meant we could leave all our luggage with our sons while we returned the car. The hotel is very close to Termini station and we walked to the Colosseum and the Trevi fountain quite easily. There was good wi-fi available free in the rooms.

    The parking for the car is not at the hotel, it is just around the corner in a separate parking lot. It cost 35 euro for 24 hours and they park the car for you. They only take cash. It looked like it was a little dodgy but it all worked out perfectly for us.
