The staff were very helpful and friendly they gave out maps of the city, metro and directions. They also assisted in printing out boarding pass for flight and booked transportation to the airport. The breakfast buffet had ample choices, cheese, meat, eggs, cereals, breads, juice, coffee, yogurt, fruit so it was very filling and worked for the whole family. I took a cab from the train station that was 5euro, you can take the metro there but it is at least a 10 walk to the hotel wouldn't want to pull my luggage that far. My room did not have good internet which seems to be a problem in Italy (I had the same problem in Florence). Wifi works great in the lobby and common areas but once you close your room door it is spotty. There was a large grocery store two blocks away restaurants were located by the metro entrance which is a bit of a walk so I would eat closer to the central city before going back to hotel.
Make sure you realize there is a 6euro per person, per night city tax and extra person policy of 30 euro per night. So your room goes up by 48euro per night for three people!
This is a decent hotel as long as you're OK with not being near the core tourist area of the city. It's just a 5 minute walk to the B1 line of the metro, so it only takes about 30 minutes to get to the center anyway. (Unless there happens to be a transit strike, like there was for one of the days I was staying there. In that case, it's a looong walk.) There are several restaurants in the area though (I recommend Pizzeria la Conca d'Oro), and it's certainly a quieter, less touristy area, so I was happy with it.
The hotel was clean and modern. The included breakfast included a lot of pastries, and eggs/meat/cheese/yogurt/etc. - but the only fruit available was canned peaches, and on a couple days there was no fruit at all. I like my morning fruit!
My only other complaint is that the staff, though polite, didn't seem to follow through on things they said they would do. The TV in my room wasn't receiving any channels, so I asked if they could take a look. It wasn't done by the next day. I asked again, and they said "Oh, I think it's been done now." It hadn't been. The third time I asked, they sent a person up and the problem was fixed. Same thing for the towel heater - it notified them that it wasn't working, but nothing was ever done.
Overall I found the hotel to be good value.
We stayed 3 nights in this small hotel. The staff are friendly and very helpful. The location is good for the price. Buses 82 and 90 provide easy connection to the city centre (Rome Termini). The facilities in the bathroom (shower, etc.) need a little of refurbishment work. The breakfast was very good.
"Nice, good value hotel with good transport links"
We very much enjoyed our stay here with no major problems at all. Considering the price, the location was actually pretty good with a regular bus service into the centre of Rome. The room was spotless clean with air conditioning and a decent bathroom. Only slight complaint was the lack of proper windows (top floor, so only a skylight), which would have made the room even nicer. Hotel staff were also very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was a decent selection, however some items tended to run out and not be replaced if you didn't get down there really early. Overall, a very pleasant stay for exploring the city.
We were upgraded to a room called Garden 1. The room was at the back of the hotel and completely separated from the hotel. My wife commented that it was like having our own house. The breakfast was quite outstanding with the choice you could have. It ranged from pastries, cold cuts through to cooked eggs. The guys at reception were always very polite and helpful. We were only in Rome for three nights but it was like a home away from home.
We were very pleased with our stay here, while travelling on a budget. Receptionist gentleman was very helpful after a long flight coming into Rome at midnight. We were given useful information on places to visit, and convenient bus lines.
Best of all, the room was nice and spacious, clean and so comfortable! Plus a breakfast buffet each morning.
