The staff are willing to help when needed and there is 24 hr reception. The room was spacious and tidy, but plain. I would certainly stay here again, unless I was richer. There is a very pleasant, interesting... More

I will join most of the reviewer here: it is minimum comfort, certainly not a 3 stars for my standards, too noisy when you need to get up quickly... Oki... but it is cheap and you are in Rome, with a connection through the Metro to the center (Colosseum, ect), so it depends what you are looking for! I rate... More

On arrival at the hotel we were unsure where the hotel was as it was on the 2nd floor of a block of flats and no signs to go upstairs. When we went up to the hotel, we had a cold welcome. We weren't shown to our room or any information about staying in the room other than the time... More

Hotel better than we thought judging by the very negative reviews on here. Dont expect too much but the bed, toilet and towels were clean. Is a comfortable room as a base. Initially had a room around the corner from the 24 hour reception. Do not accept a room here, really noisy and breakfast prepared from 6am outside the room.... More

Rooms-no sound proof,very noisy. I can even hear the sound of the bed and the lady having sex on the next room.VERY DUSTY underneath the table.Worst of all they gave two single beds put together for me and for my husband. How can we sleep together? Toilets-TERRIBLE SMELL.UNBEARABLE. Staff-can't understand/speak English. Breakfast-all the same everyday, no choices. Internet access-VERY POOR

Nice staff, lovely breakfast ,uncomfortable bed .The nearest underground is Bologna but watch your belongings on the metro somebody cut right through my handbag and stole my ipod.It is only 4 euros for a day pass on the metro you can get off and on as many times as you want no good if you have walking difficulties though.

Staying in San Lorenzo

Neighbourhood Profile
San Lorenzo
San Lorenzo may look all street with its pulse in urban art and street food, but don’t be fooled. This gritty student neighbourhood immediately east of Termini train station is on the avant-garde rise. Art galleries, curated mural projects by artists like Rome’s favorite Alice, charming cafes, and boutique restaurants are slowly infiltrating the streets of San Lorenzo with counter-culture chic. Don’t worry, San Lorenzo still retains its local vibe with weekend festivals and demonstrations, and is always a hub for Rome’s university student scene.
