          The location is very convinient, close to the Termini station and a city center.We've asked for a double bed but instead got a two beds attached together.

          The staff is really rude and unprofessional, the guy in the reception is the worst that I've ever see in my entire life. The elevator is really old, the room is needed a renovation urgently. The breakfast was very pure and not for a tree star hotel maybe a guesthouse. Awful place, just don't stay there!!!

          Location near train station was a plus, lots of nearby restaurants was great and breakfast buffet helped in getting us on our way in the mornings.

          Front desk clerk upon check in did not speak very much english, and although we were in Italy, there were other desk clerks that spoke more english.

          Etwa 200 m entf Hbf Roma Termini und im Verkehrsknoten...die Sehenswürdigkeit kann man auch schnell finden .

          It is a shame for this hotel because it is situated in good place. But the Reception has only basic english and no German , the Room was unclean and had mould in the bathroom , in the shower the drain became blocked quickly ,so 69 € for the Room was too much and I will never recommend this Hotel to anyone , I have writen this in English and not German so anyone can read this .

          There is no hot running water despite personnel’s assurances that everything’s gonna be ok. On the second day we checked out, we had paid for the room almost 30% more than the reserved cost. We were supposed to live7 nights there. When booking a hotel it was noted that the Internet is free. In the evening we were told that the internet in the lobby for 2 euro per hour and only next morning it turned out that after all it's free for customers of the hotel. Staff barely speaks in English therefore it causes a lot of misunderstandings.

          The location was absolutely perfect. Close to the train station & city center as well.

          Sometimes it was a bit complicated to talk with stuff. Their English was just basic.

          Close to Roma Termini and restaurants around the hotel.

          The bad service of the overnight receptionist. He doesn't speak English but keeping talking to you in Italian which I totally don't understand. And when I complained about the noisy school kids shouting and running around in the corridor, he replied "the group" meaning he couldn't do anything about it. Therefore I had to sleep with accepting the crazy noise made from the school kid for 3 whole nights.

          Location, location, location. Cry near to trains, subways, buses. Lots of restaurants. Close to most important sights.

          New bathroom avant garde renovations not conducive to family accommodation. Not private enough with the glass and no enclosed bathroom.

          Excellent location, helpful staff. Very comfortable room, although we did not have a remote control for our tv and could not get it to work - we were told it had been sorted, but it was'T. But hey, there is more than enough to see and do in Rome than worry about watching tv in your room. This hotel is ideally located to enable easy travel across the city on public transprt to all of the things that we wanted to see. Really good value too.

          Shame about the lift - but the problem was with people not closing the doors - not the lift itself!!

          Convenient location, helpful pleasant staff, Clean room, good breakfast. Helpful with sightseeing directions.

          Desk chair was always blocking passage to far side of bed. This was inconvenient with 2 people in the room. Shower smaller than which I am accustomed. How do you get those bed lamps to stay put?

          A very modern and clean hotel. The hotel must have been recently renovated, a comfortable arrangement of the bathroom (use of modern material for construction), we liked the modern "minimalistic" style of decoration starting from the room furniture, wall paper and new mattress and towels. Excellent service and quality for the money.

          It's so close to the railway station. The hotel is actually below the 3 stars standard. The front desk is at 1st floor, but the rooms are on the 4th floor, the breakfast room is on underground floor. The most strange thing is that the 2nd floor belongs to two other hotels. The room is too shabby, and the breakfast is very simple. A hostel is much better than this hotel. There is even no internet in the hotel.
