We read with a sinking feelings the reviews of this hotel, We were already booked in so couldnt change, We entered expecting sour grumpy staff and found the total opposite, We were greeted with courtsey by friendly staff who made time for our 13 year old grandson , we were taken to our room which ok was a little tired but very clean and everything worked .
We had wonderfull time there no complaints about rude staff. Yes the fabric of the hotel is tired buts its an old hotel but with all the sights within walking distance resturants next door and accross the road its wonderfull for every thing needed on a trip to Rome we all enjoyed our stay there and would go back..

We only stayed here one night (which was a good thing) and then we headed to Tuscany via the Roma Termini train station. The room (and hotel itself) is in desperate need of refurbishing - did not sleep well that night - mattress was paper thin, the room was dark and the bathroom was tiny. I would not recommend this hotel for even the budget-conscious. The only thing it had going for it was that it was near the train station and we couldn't wait to check out!

I'll make this quick.

Good points :

*Great location - handy for public transport and access to all attractions.

Er, that's it.

Bad points :

*Rude staff (and I mean rude)
*If you're not allocated a room on floor 5, then you will be in trouble. Even then, the re-furbished rooms in this area need attention - fridge broken, showering where water is allowed to spray everywhere, beds brick hard (in my case our double bed was two single beds shoved together), rooms are NOT cleaned and are frankly filthy.
*Breakfast - OK, I know continental meals at the start of the day are carbohydrate based, but really, what passes as food in this establishment beggars belief. Stale bread, boiled eggs (cold and needing shelled), melted cheese and processed meat - Yuk.
*The lift. Blimey. Surely unsafe. The floor felt it was about to give way!!

It was a place to sleep during our 4 night stay in a beautiful and otherwise welcoming city, but for me that's not enough. Avoid if you can. Rome will be visited again by me, but a little more research will be done on accomodation and this placed will be off my list.

Room Tip: Make sure that the A/C works and avoid rooms on floor 4.
