        Accessibility to transport and the city. Staff were very friendly and helpful.Super buffet breakfast.

      • Couple
        7.0

        Very clean room, well supplied with towels every day, very helpful personnel, nice and plentiful breakfast. No problems with utilities or any other in general.

        The hotel was undergoing renovations at the time we stayed, but only in the middle of the day when we were out in the city so there was no problem.

      • Couple
        5.0

        15 min. from metro by foot or 5 by bus. 3 or 4 metro stations from the Colisseum.

        I asked for non-smoking room, but it was a smoking and the smell was not good.The breakfast is really poor.

      • Single
        3.2

        Fair location, well connected to the center of Rome;

        Very impolite and unwilling to help staff. Internet connection barely working; breakfast buffet poorly provided

      • Couple
        5.0

        Low price, big rooms, friendly staff. About 20 minuts to metro station garbetella.

        This is not 4-star hotel. You need to wait for hot water, towels smell like vinegar, coffee at breakfast is non-drinkable. below the standard but good for economic turists.

      • Family with children
        6.6

        good value for money. good bus connections. breakfast good.

        Location was not great but on good bus routes.

      • Older travelers
        5.4

        Nothing springs to mind apart from nice sunny balcony.

        It was in an area with very little choice of bars or restaurants, It also had no bar.

      • Couple
        4.2

        The only positive factor of this hotel is the price. None of the other factors can grant it a positive classification.

        The breakfast is very limited. The coffee is awfull. The professionalism of all hotel employees is far from the standards required for even a 3 star hotel. The hotel is located in a far location from the metro station - Garbella - and the best way to go to the city center is the bus, I asked this to the receptionist and got no answer, only that the metro was at a 10-minute walk to the metro station - wll at a good pace is 15-20 minutes. Basically, avoid staying at this hotel.

      • Single
        7.0

        The prics is good. The location between city center and EUR was attractive to me.

        I dont recommend it to single travelers who book a double room in order to have a friend or a date over. The hotel reception got me into a long discussion because I wanted a friend who was picking me up to wait in my room and not in the lobby. ---- I also do not recommend it if you really need internet in your room for work or because it is personally important for you. It is too slow and many sites therefore do not build up at all.

      • Older travelers
        7.8

        Great location! Availability Garbatella subway station, bus stop near the hotel. Good connection to downtown Rome and at the beach too. Clean rooms! Daily cleaning and change of towels and linen. Furniture in the rooms are outdated, but fully adequate and functional. Big bathrooms, with bath in the corner rooms.

        Very simple breakfast buffet. For 1 night enough for a longer stay still the same choice of three kinds of cookies, buns 1 type, 1 type of salami and cheese, yogurt. The hotel has no restaurant or bistro.

      • Couple
        7.0

        It is ideal for low-budget tourists, especially for couples, who just come for a few days' sightseeing in Rome. The staff was friendly and did not want us to pay any extra fees except for the reservation price.

        A little bit far from the city center. There are several bus connections, but there is no information about their schedule even in the bust stops. Not really recommended for families with small children or business travellers because of the lack comfortability facilities.

      • Group of friends
        5.0

        it was clean and ok to stay for a couple of days

        it's location, it was a bit far and not good going out late at night. Good communications though during the days.

      • Group of friends
        6.6

        Hotel was well connected with several busses and a metro station. To take a taxi to the hotel was also not very expensive to get to the city. supermarket about 5minutes walking distance, small shop also about 5minutes walking distance. breakfast was alright for this room rate. Also the room were satisfying for this room rate. Free internet in the hotel lobby on a computer which was nice.

        We were in the first night in room 707, which was small, smelly, dark and had mold. After one night of bad sleep and bad headache we could change immediately to another room, which was bigger, full light, had a balcony and increased the comfort of our stay

      • Group of friends
        8.8

        It was clean, though far out of the downtown area, bus and train access are close by and run regularly. Staff were very helpful, internet access was available in the lobby. Would be nice if it was available in the room. No ice machines available.

        No real restaurants apart from one next door, which seemed quite expensive. Breakfast was good, but a toaster would be nice if made available I believe it would be used.

      • Older travelers
        8.2

        The staff was friendly and spoke excellent English. The room was spacious, shower with plenty of hot water and good water pressure. Breakfast was cold cereal, yogurt, cheese, meat, plenty of rolls and bread and drinks - quite adequate. It is a 15-20 minute walk to the metro. The walk is through a local neighborhood with lots of shops and places to eat during the day - closed up and quiet in the evening. However, the bus to the main train station was great. We rode it every day without problem, getting on across the street from the hotel. The is also a grocery store near the hotel.

        There was no way to control the room temperature and it was quite warm in the room. It was much better with the balcony door open - however the door opened onto a shared balcony, which made it unsafe to leave the door open in the night. The balcony also fronted the busy street but earplugs took care of the street noise. The hotel was undergoing renovations however we did not encounter any inconveniences with this. Although there is a restaurant next door to the hotel, there are not many other options for eating in the evening if you choose to come back to the hotel before having dinner.
