We stayed for 3 night in a standard double room on the first floor and really liked the hotel.
The room was quite small but had a Kingsize bed and enough wardrobe space. Bathroom was again small, but very clean with a good powerful shower (no bath).
The room was decorated to a really high standard and felt luxurious.
Hotel staff were always friendly and the receptionist who checked us in gave is a map and some good tips.
The hotel is not in a tourist area, but is really close to the metro, so you can get central very quickly. Although we live in London and use the tube everyday so wanted to avoid transport where possible. As a rough guide we found the following walking distances:
Train Station 10-15mins
Spanish Steps 30mins
The walks are worth it because you get to see so much great stuff on the way.
Breakfast was lovely and set out on a nice terrace.
One tiny negative was the temperature, our room was really warm and the air con only went as low as 17 degrees.
Overall a great stay in a small friendly quiet hotel.
The staff were very helpful and friendly they gave out maps of the city, metro and directions. They also assisted in printing out boarding pass for flight and booked transportation to the airport. The breakfast buffet had ample choices, cheese, meat, eggs, cereals, breads, juice, coffee, yogurt, fruit so it was very filling and worked for the whole family. I took a cab from the train station that was 5euro, you can take the metro there but it is at least a 10 walk to the hotel wouldn't want to pull my luggage that far. My room did not have good internet which seems to be a problem in Italy (I had the same problem in Florence). Wifi works great in the lobby and common areas but once you close your room door it is spotty. There was a large grocery store two blocks away restaurants were located by the metro entrance which is a bit of a walk so I would eat closer to the central city before going back to hotel.
Make sure you realize there is a 6euro per person, per night city tax and extra person policy of 30 euro per night. So your room goes up by 48euro per night for three people!
"Nice, good value hotel with good transport links"
We very much enjoyed our stay here with no major problems at all. Considering the price, the location was actually pretty good with a regular bus service into the centre of Rome. The room was spotless clean with air conditioning and a decent bathroom. Only slight complaint was the lack of proper windows (top floor, so only a skylight), which would have made the room even nicer. Hotel staff were also very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was a decent selection, however some items tended to run out and not be replaced if you didn't get down there really early. Overall, a very pleasant stay for exploring the city.
This is a decent hotel as long as you're OK with not being near the core tourist area of the city. It's just a 5 minute walk to the B1 line of the metro, so it only takes about 30 minutes to get to the center anyway. (Unless there happens to be a transit strike, like there was for one of the days I was staying there. In that case, it's a looong walk.) There are several restaurants in the area though (I recommend Pizzeria la Conca d'Oro), and it's certainly a quieter, less touristy area, so I was happy with it.
The hotel was clean and modern. The included breakfast included a lot of pastries, and eggs/meat/cheese/yogurt/etc. - but the only fruit available was canned peaches, and on a couple days there was no fruit at all. I like my morning fruit!
My only other complaint is that the staff, though polite, didn't seem to follow through on things they said they would do. The TV in my room wasn't receiving any channels, so I asked if they could take a look. It wasn't done by the next day. I asked again, and they said "Oh, I think it's been done now." It hadn't been. The third time I asked, they sent a person up and the problem was fixed. Same thing for the towel heater - it notified them that it wasn't working, but nothing was ever done.
Overall I found the hotel to be good value.
We stayed 3 nights in this small hotel. The staff are friendly and very helpful. The location is good for the price. Buses 82 and 90 provide easy connection to the city centre (Rome Termini). The facilities in the bathroom (shower, etc.) need a little of refurbishment work. The breakfast was very good.
The hotel is about 5 minutes walk from S.agnese/annibaliano (metro line B), in a nice, quite area. The rooms were clean and comfortable and made for a good base whilst we stayed in Rome. We visited the roof bar one evening, this was a nice place to chill out after a busy day of sightseeing. The staff at the front desk were very nice, helpful and made some great recommendations.
Set in northern Rome near a bend in the Tiber River, Parioli-Normentano is one of Rome's wealthier neighborhoods. The National Gallery of Modern Art is located here, along with two large parks, Villa Borghese and Villa Ada. The neighborhood also has a zoo, Bioparco, which has more than 1,000 animals.
