I must admit this hotel is not in the best location , the entrance is easy to miss and first impression from outside is a little bit disappointing, it doesn't look welcoming. However enter through the doors and it is transformed into a welcoming and friendly hotel. Reception staff are knowledgeable and keen to please. Rooms are clean and modern....

My boyfriend booked this for me for Christmas for 4 nights. I knew nothing about it but i'm really pleased he chose this one. The service was flawless! I am gluten free and the selection for breakfast was really varied, they really made an effort. The room was spacious, clean, had lots of facilities such as a TV with English...

The hotel is at a10 minutes walk from the metro line, but is very quiet and peaceful at night, far from the city agitation. The room I stay in is really clean, despite a few stains on the carpet. The bathroom is perfect, big and perfectly clean. The bed is also very comfy and a second blanket is provided if...

Although a little out of the centre of Rome this is a very pleasant comfortable hotel for Rome sightseeing. I stayed here with my wife and 10 year old son. Pros- It was very clean (a must for my wife!) and comfortable place with large light airy rooms. Breakfast provided something for all tastes from cereals, continental cheeses/meats/breads through to...

We payed to stay half board here for 5 days. Breakfast buffet was ok, however the nighttime meal offered in our half board was poor... the dishes served were very stodgy and often so hot as if they had been microwaved, my partner receiving a meal that was piping hot in parts and stone cold in others. We continued to...

The hotel is ideally situated on the bus route to both the Vatican and the Ancient heart of Rome. The facilities were clean and well maintained but the best part of this hotel was the staff. From the Bellboy to the Concierge, the level of care and attention to detail was impeccable. There was an issue with our reservation due...
