We stayed here as part of the tour; clean and comfortable rooms. The staff was friendly. The neighborhood looks shady, however, it is at a walkable distance to a train station which can take you to the main attractions. Breakfast was standard. This can be the hotel for a quick trip.

I was able to schedule a short weekend trip to Rome, and I wanted a comfortable place that was accessible from Fiumicino airport. When I arrived, I was immediately informed by airport personnel that a taxi strike had just startedin the city to protest Uber and the like. That certainly increased the general feelings of stress throughout my fellow passengers....

So, granted you shouldn't be spending much time in it but all my complaints are about the room more or less. Very very small. No fridge which is a huge bummer. Also no AC, we have to leave the window open (without screen) all night. Beds and pillows are rock hard. You also here the train going by at all...

Dear Valued Guest, let me express my genuinely apologize for the problem you experienced at our property about the room temperature but from Oct the 1st, the Rome City Council allows providing the heating only to avoid air pollution and accordingly to this term we are not able to offer the air conditioning at the same time.

this hotel lies outside of the centre of Rome, but conveniently close to 2 red line metro stops, that will bring you right into the old city center. Why do we like this hotel so much?

We stayedl for 2 nights (3 days). Having read the previous reviews we requested a room with a view to the courtyard to avoid the noise from the train line.
