My boyfriend and I arrived to the hotel quite late in the evening. We were very happy to find a quiet and clean hotel to spend the evening before our early morning flight. The restaurant was closed and we were very hungry so the wonderful staff went out of their way to make us a light snack with prosciutto, fresh mozzarella and wine! It was delicious! Definitely recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a relaxing place to stay!
Very friendly staff, excellent breakfast and very fresh food, sheets/towels changed daily, lovely comfy mattress, cool air conditioning, local pub/restaurant Mr Kite (opposite hotel) has anazing food in the evenings after 8pm, don't be put off by the outside graffiti etc- wonderful friendly young staff too! We really appreciated the huge and well equipped gym next door and the pool !
This hotel smacks of a bygone era. Forty years ago, one imagines, it was crazy glamorous. It is no longer four star by American standards... The beds are hard and the sheets scratchy, but it had many plus sides. Arrival from the airport was difficult as we had to take a cab and our cabbie drove us well out of the way and the ride was very expensive. Our room was enormous and we had a private patio, which was great as we put our seven year old to bed and sat out there. Breakfast was nice and the restaurant with the hotel was fantastic and very reasonable for Rome. The biggest downside was the distance from historical sights and it only worked for us because we came back early at night to put our child to bed. I would not have felt safe walking from the Metro to the hotel later at night.

Didnt let us check out, even with the expedia confirmation payment, pay twice for the room, old rooms noise, won't don't let pass reviews fool you. Don't make the same mistake I made, Rome such and amazing place to have bad hotel memories
The hotel is nice. It has a european sytle breakfast buffet. From the advertisement I was led to believe it was American style but it wasn't. It was acceptable though. The hotel does have access to a small lap pool but it is not what you you would expect. It is part of a fitness club and they use it for their water aerobic training. There are very short periods where open swimming is allowed but even then it is not for kids playing. The fitness center itself was great if you like to lift weights or use tread mills, excercise bikes, etc. The hotel staff was really helpful when ever asked for help. There was a misunderstanding about the number of family members I had versus the size of the room we were given through Expedia. The hotel modified and placed us in a larger room at no extra charge and showed no displeasure. The rooms were very clean, well kept, and comfortable. The hotel is about a 1/2 mile walk to a metro station and 1/4 mile walk to the nearest bus stop. The hotel is about 5 or 6 kilometers from the city center but the transit system is easy to use. It cost 1 euro per person to go anywhere on the subway line. 24 hour subway passes were available and would save money if you are going to multiple locations in the same day. We found that one pass was adequate to get us where we need to go in the downtown area and walked from there. The local area seemed safe to walk around as well. If I return to Rome I will contact this hotel again.

A couple of miles south of the city centre, EUR takes its name from Esposizione Universale di Roma, built for an exhibition in 1942. The bombastic architecture was then intended to glorify Fascism, but now is home to shops, cinemas and clubs and exhibitions. Within the marble halls there are also three very good museums, including the fascinating Museum of Roman Civilization.
