          • Group of friends

            We liked that they gave us a suite because they didn't have a room with 2 singles rooms. We also like that it is near the city center (Via del Corso), Ara Pacis museum and that you have to pass throught the river which is wonderful!

            We think that the breakfast could be with more variety. Also the stuff could be more pleasent.

            Very good hotel for city trip. Excellent location, in 10 minute walk from Basilica di San Pietro.

            I was in this hotel in February and entrance of my room was from the terrace, tha is why it was very cold at night.

            Great staff, location, shower, clean.

            Breakfast could be better, the coffee is awful and no fresh fruit, no eggs etc...

            The central location, very close to Vatican and to Spanish Steps etc

            It is very dark, would need updating especially when the hotel is very compact.

          • Couple

            The location was great, we were only 20 metres from the airport shuttle stop, and under 10 minute walk to the major shopping strip, Via del Corso. Vatican City was only 15-20min walk away and Trastevere and the Collosseum were the furthest away at around 25-30 mins walk. The room was no frills in terms of decor but it was spacious and clean. The Hotel staff were friendly and the 24 hour reception was very convienient. Breakfast was good, with cereals, fruit, rolls, pastries, yogurt on offer.

            The beds were pretty uncomfortable, they had hollows in them, really needed new mattresses. Although this hotel claims to offer WiFi, it was not working for the first three nights of our stay. They got it working for the last night, but having seen reviews from others with the same story, I have to wonder about the reliability of the WiFi.
