Editorial review:

Don’t let the boring concrete façade scare you away from this delightful hotel. The theme of the décor is minimalism and it is very well done. The sleeping rooms have clean pleasant lines with lovely modular furniture. The suites have more color and bright cheerful carpeting.

Verified Reviews:

  • Walking distance to the tram - Good location - Spacious rooms - Shower was quite bad
  • Small bathroom - Parking cost 20 euro - Would definitely stay there again
  • Room was in good condition - Staff were very helpful - Had a huge jacuzzi bath
  • Quiet location near the bus - Excellent buffet breakfast - Don't expect a nice view
  • Close to nice restaurants - Competent english speaking staff - Will return to this hotel

              The location was in a quiet area so had a good nights sleep away from the main tourist area. Easy access to all the nice restaurnants in Trastervere and a short tram ride from city centre. Rooms large and comfortable.

              It was on a very quiet street and the room was very quiet so at any time of the day or night when you wanted to sleep in or nap at any time you were not disturbed.

              The quality of the breakfast needs to be improved. The coffee especially was not good. There was no free wi-fi anywhere.

              Location; walking distance of good restaurants in Trastevere, tram 8 (to old city centre) and bus 3 (to Colloseum) nearby. Also easy to reach from airport (train to Trastevere station 20min) and then 3 stops with tram 8 or bus 3). Safety box Good water pressure in shower Staff is helpfull with providing maps, pointing directions and they also sell single use metrobus tickets (usefull on Sunday when the Tobacco shop who sells them is closed)

              The room is kind of dark so you have to turn on the lights, also during day time. The lights are 'design', which has a downside; they are so white / bright that they almost blind you (the ones next to the mirror). In the bathroom is not enough space for your toilitries travelbag. The showercurtain is too small, so the bathroomfloor gets pretty wet when you shower. Walls are thin; you can hear the tv / conversations of your neighbours (especially if they are Italian.. ;-) Carpet has stains and the hotel is a little outdated. Internet/wifi is expensive; they should make it free for guests! Breakfast; coffee and orange juice taste horrible.

              Perfect hotel for families, clean and simple, large rooms with kitchenette (bring a pot for heating childrens' food however), good location in trastevere, which is very nice area with loads of restaurants and bars. Tiny elevators though!

              Breakfast was not nice- however neither was a nice breakfast expected...

              The room was very comfortable and clean. The location was close to public transportation, and equally convenient by taxi to the Rome central area.

              You have to leave your key at the front desk before you leave the hotel each day. Why?

              Good location to get to everything "touristy" in Rome as well as to visit the restaurants and cafes frequented by the locals. Staff was helpful about answering how to get places questions. Everyone spoke English. Breakfast each day offered a lot of choices. Pictures of rooms on the website were accurate. Even though the website said internet was like $20 a day, they actually have internet cards you can buy at the hotel for about $6 for 30 minutes of connection time and use for your whole stay.

              The reception was very helpful. The hotel was modern in an ancient city. Excellent location. relatively fairly priced. clean!!! Up kept well.

              For the modern decor..the TVs could be updated to flat screen, but we were so busy exploring Rome that we didn't have time or want to watch tv.

              I was positively surprised of the hotel - neighbourhood is bit shady, yet at immediate approximity of Viale di Trastevere, but hotel itself was fresh, modern, we had an excellent room, even breakfast was good. Professional reception lady - no usual Italian casino.

              Shower temperature regulator did not work. Boys at the bar were bit too laid back, did not clean the glasses from the table nor did they wipe the table before I asked - and I speak good italian.....

              Breakfast was very good and location was excellent. Staff was helpful and rooms were spacious.

              Rooms were a bit dated and not very well cleaned, like mould on bathroom, minibar was never been defrosted, lots of pigeon dirty on the balcony.

              Location of the hotel. Near restaurant & bar area and easy access to public transportation. The room was spacy, clean and quiet and looked nice. Comfortable beds. Friendly staff.

              The Internet was expensive, should be free of charge or cheaper in 4 star hotel.
