Great Hotel. Okay Location.

Posted 12-Aug-2014
Pros: Friendly, helpful staff. Wonderful large patio. Good price.
Cons: Noise control?? Daily room service.
Location: Location looks sketchy, but felt safe walking about. There are local bakeries, restaurants and a nearby grocery store. Fruit stand across the street.
Positives- Wonderful staff who are very helpful to foreign visitors. Room was clean with a modern style. Room is small, but makes use of every inch of space. Sofa converts to beds for additional guests. Amazing private patio- even larger than the room! Restaurant below has wonderful food. Negatives- Around 11 pm each night, city becomes very noisy with loud dance music. Traffic noise is also loud due to busy street below. Room is not sound proof because of large windows. Staff does provide ear plugs. There is no staff on the hotel grounds at all times. They get in around 8am and leave after dark. Room cleaning service is every other day, but you can request extra towels, toilet paper, etc. Hotel is not near tourist attractions, so you can walk, but it is a few miles. There is a nearby train station and taxis are always available. Area is not in the attractive area of Trastevere. There's lots of graffiti in the area.

Nice hotel convenient to Testaccio.

Posted 23-Jul-2014
Pros: It was clean & convenient to the Trastevere station. Staff was friendly and let us leave bags the last day.
Location: Citta Dell'Altra Economia across the bridge, huge flea market on Sunday, easy tram ride to central Trastevere and Piazza Venezia, Testaccio, Piramide.
I only stayed for 2 nights but it had everything required for a long stay. There's nothing special about the view or anything, but the balcony was nice. I didn't find the "nightclub noise" to be a problem but I live in New York so maybe I'm just jaded. The hotel supplies ear plugs anyway. (Right across the river is a venue called Citta Dell'Altra Economia which runs until September (in 2014 at least) and has many interesting stores, food, and concerts-- I had a great time visiting that, but it is also likely the source of the noise.) Everything went smoothly for us, in any case. The rooms are strangely laid out (like two adjacent triangles), but that's not problematic. The TV shows ancient Italian movies and BBC in English. There's a supermarket around the corner downstairs and a gym which we probably could have used if we'd wanted to.

Too far from everything!

Posted 21-Jun-2014
We were disappointed with just how far the hotel ended up being from everything! Even the local Taxi drivers didn't know where if was! All the travelling added significantly to our journey time everyday which was really frustrating! The hotel is not good for mobility issues as the lift was very temperamental and often never worked. My Mum is 66 so 6 flights of stairs weren't great for her to climb at least once a day! The hotel was also close to an area where there was loud music each night which also wasn't ideal especially as it went on until at least midnight! The hotel was very clean however that is the only positive comment I could really make! Hotel staff not very pleasant either!! Disappointing!

Excellent apartment close to public transport.

Posted 30-Apr-2014
Pros: Clean, spacious, large balcony
Cons: Nothing
Location: Close to train station, tram and buses. If you can walk for 30 minutes, you will find yourself in city centre.
Nice service apartment with good facilities. If you need iron or kettle, you need to ask for it at the reception.

OK - But would not stay there again!

Posted 29-Oct-2013 on Hotels.com
OK - but no telephone in the room and no 24 hour front desk. The front desk closes, so as a guest, you are left on your own with no staff!

A Hotel for the Deaf!!

Posted 28-Oct-2013
Extremely diappointing!!!! Stayed from October 20-27, thus a period of six days. Was awoken at night by the thunderous beat of an open-air discotheque across the river. Music started at roughly midnight and continued to the wee-hours of the morning (5AM). I was, to say the least, flabberghasted!! By the whole situation. I couldn't comprehend how a city like Rome could tolerate such a situation!!! How the residents of the surrounding area could put up with such loud music in the dead (?) of night!!!! Which is a shame, because the hotel has a lot of potential!!! However, I stay at a hotel to sleep!!! And sleep is not....and I repeat, not......an option at the Luongotevere!! On another note, the air-conditioning was disabled, which given the fact that the temperature was in the mid-to-upper 20s, was unfortunate. Overall, a terrible experience.

Great experience in Trastavere

Posted 15-Oct-2013
Best part of the hotel is that it is modern and comfortable, and has free access to an amazing gym that has classes and even climbing. It's not in the bustling nightlife part of Trastavere, but is very easy public transportation to get there, or anywhere else you need to go in central Rome. The only downside has been mentioned in other reviews - the hotel is across the river from a very loud nightclub that blasts music very late Friday and Saturday nights. I'd put it in the slightly annoying category, not loud enough to bother sleeping patterns, but loud enough that you will hear it. The hotel does provide ear plugs if the noise really bothers you. All in all, the hotel was a great experience and as one of the cheaper hotels in the area, is well worth the price.

Perfect stay for testaccio and public transport

Posted 29-Aug-2013 on Hotels.com
The hotel is very nice and spacious, the breakfast is good as well. The downside of the location is mitigated by the closeness to the tram and trains which get you to all the sites within 10 mins. Plus, the size and cost of the hotel is def worth the extra travel time. The staff is nice as well. They even upgraded us to an apartment, and the apt is huge!!! If you can, try to book the apt, the balcony and bathroom alone are bigger than some other hotels in italy, no lie! I will definitely come back here to stay at the apt. You will enjoy your stay, it is near testaccio the night club hotspot, walking distance, and the best pizzerria is about a block away near the mcd's
