Editorial review:

If you want to stay near Rome’s Coliseum but not in a stuffy old fashioned hotel, this may be just your place. This is an extremely well executed designer hotel with a very pleasant earth toned décor marked by bright colorful accents in the artwork and the furniture. The sleeping rooms have a lot of natural light and are quite large. The staff is very attentive and there’s a small gym where you can work off your extra energy or that extra dessert.

          The location is ideal-only 5 minutes from the Colesso. The rooms are lovely. The staff at breakfast couldn't have been nicer-nothing was too much trouble for them

          The prices in the bar are outrageous. Also the hotel charges €5 per half hour for the internet. We just wanted to check in online with our airline but the receptionist didnt offer to do it for us at the desk - it would have only taken two minutes. It was our fourth visit to the hotel. I found that the breakfast wasn't as good as previously and the service at reception was efficient rather than welcoming. Profit seems to be more important than customer service.

          The location was very good, in a quiet yet not inaccessible neighborhood. Good air-conditioning on a very hot day.

          Poor value--overpriced with inattentive and dismissive staff. Getting a taxi from the bellman was impossible--he told me to walk to the desk (three steps away) and tell them I needed a taxi. It wasn't apparently his job to let them know!! He then let me know we were by no means the next people waiting for a taxi and I might as well sit down. He then left me to carry my own cases down a rather steep flight of stairs to be able to get into the taxi when it finally didi arrive.The beds were small and the mattresses sagging in the middle. The pillows were hard, small and on per bed. The walls were thin and I could hear a great deal of noise from other rooms.

          Location near the Colosseum and the metro was terrific but still on a quiet side street. The facilities were modern and exceptional. It was nice to have my own room key that I didn't have to turn in to the desk when I came and went like at some European hotels. Lots of amenities.

          No real complaints...would have liked a pool given the July heat but knew that wasn't an option when I booked...

          The hotel is well located, just 5 minutes walking from the Coliseum. Although you have restaurants and bars in the neighborhood, it stays a quiet place during the night. The roof terasse is big and a good asset for this hotel. The room was perfectly clean. Very nice staff, the breakfast crew in particular.

          Expensive. We were really disappointed by the executive room, which we thought would be bigger. It was actually the size of any regular room. No free welcoming bottle of water supposedly included in the room rate. Low wifi on the 4th floor. We recommend to pay you meal or drink straight away, because the bill is not very detailed at check-out.

          Good for getting to the Colosseum. We had a particularly nice room, not sure if they were all as nicely proportioned though.

          Minor point; the room was beautifully cleaned; this meant it took from early morning to late afternoon to finish the cleaning, which could be inconvenient if popping back after lunch for any reason.

          1) The girl working in the evening at the reception was extremely nice, kind, helpful and lovely! 5 stars for her! The best hotel staff I've ever met so far. 2) Very clean and tidy. They clean the rooms twice every time. We were impressed. 3) Quietly situated in the neighbourhood of Colosseo.

          We didn't have wifi during our stay, which was quite disappointing. However, the girl at the reception let us use the computer in her boss' office. This helped us a lot.

          The room was very nicely decorated and comfortable. The staff in the breakfast room always had smiles on their faces and were so hospitable...a nice way to start the day. The front desk staff answered any questions we had and the map of Rome they gave us on the first day came in very handy. After taking a long walk on the first day and then returned to the room, seeing the slippers placed by the side of the bed was such a comforting sight. Customer service was exemplary. The location, too, was convenient to so many attractions, as we chose to do a lot of walking. Thank you for a lovely stay!
