    Great hotel in Rome

    Hotel was very nice and centrally located. Walkable but also taxis right outside the door. Staff went above and beyond to make sure we were informed and comfortable.

    Location, Location, Location! This hotel is in a perfect location, almost in the middle of the figure 8 covering all of Rome's attractions. Local bus stop next to the hotel, hop on hop off 5 minutes away, piazza Navona 2 minutes away ( a great reference point when you get lost and ask for directions ). Staff is helpful and efficient. Great breakfast is included, served in a beautiful dining room and roof top terrace. A great plus is that rooms have an air conditioning unit with remote control. We departed early for our flight and the hotel provided us with a to go breakfast that was very nice. Decor is dated but everything is in great shape and very clean. Highly recommend.

    Was not a 4 star. AC Made so much noise. Beds were treble and when the lights turn off all the power of the room shuts down not a good thing when you need to charge your phones. Had to charge in the bathroom with the lights on.

    Excellent location within walking distance of all the usual Roma sites. Somewhat equidistant to most of the well know know sites with the bonus of a few that are not that famous,very close.

    Fabulous location but tired

    The situation of this hotel is perfect - just across the river from the Vatican and around the corner from Piazza Navona. You can walk everywhere. The hotel does not have a restaurant but does provide a continental breakfast - not the best but it is something. There are some good restaurants just across the road. We had a triple room - the same room that we had on our last visit 6 years ago! It was a good size but the decoration is very tired. The bed is very hard. The bathroom is again a good size but the shower cubicle is tiny and the shower itself was broken so you had to hold the shower head yourself in order to shower. Desperately needs new shower facilities. Beware if booking through Your booking confirmation will state that the price INCLUDES taxes. When you pay, you will find that they add further city taxes to your bill as apparently the taxes referred to in the booking are VAT. At the time of check out, the City taxes are applied which can increase the amount you have to pay by quite a lot, depending upon how many in your group and the number of days that you stayed. It does not advise of these further taxes anywhere on your reservation, nor are you advised by the hotel when you check in.

    Location was excellent, very near Piazza Navona and short walk to the Vatican. Lots of restaurants and cafes nearby. However, the hotel is dated and upon arrival when I first walked in I noticed a musty smell. The single room was tiny which I liked but could hear everything in the room next door, loud neighbors, I could hear the alarm on their iphone and the rustling of their purchases being packed into their suitcases. The plumbing must have been located in the wall next to the bed because there was an annoying, constant drip drip drip noise which stopped after a couple of hours. Breakfast was included and adequate. We were charged a total of 18 Euro tax each upon check out for a 3 night stay.

    The location is perfect with being in walking distance of many must see sights. I would not hesitate to stay here again. The included breakfast was fine with scrambled eggs being the only hot item. There was a nice selection of pastries along with bread, meats, cheeses, and fresh fruit. If checking out prior to normal breakfast hours, they can have a breakfast box prepared for you. The negatives were there was a lot of sound from the rooms beside me, guests returning very late and not concerned for others who prefer to rise early and avoid lines at the Vatican and such. I had a single twin bed room and am of average build, a person larger would have struggled getting in and out of the shower due to the angle of the doors. There was a shortage of outlets in the room but by unplugging a lamp, I could plug in my phone charger. But again, I would definitely return.

    Great location. Great staff. Was able to walk to a lot of main site under 20 minutes. Also, the morning breakfast was simple but good. Rooms were pretty clean but Rome is old so there was some wearing on areas. Shower grout and doors weren't in best shape but I didn't mind. The worst thing was the bed. It was so uncomfortable. It was a spring mattress way past it's prime to the point where you could physically see the concave of the mattress underneath all the blankets.
