Me and my boyfriend have just returned back from the most amazing city break from Rome.
We chose city guest house to stay in and we honestly couldn't have been more happier with choosing to stay with them.

So we was allowed to check in at 12pm when we requested it via booking.com which was super handy. Then we went into our room which was 504 and we absolutely love it!

We wasn't aware we had a balcony with a table and chairs! Perfect for the weather we had. The room had a hairdryer aswell which was handy.

We also had breakfast included which you had continental items such as one croissant and unlimited choice of cereals, cakes, fruit and toast.

There was a metro station 5 mins away.

This is not your traditional hotel, it is more like a block of flats with a reception on the ground floor and a breakfast room on the 5th floor. There is alot of rubbish outside but then everywhere we went in the local vicinity was the same though i dont know why as we heard the bin collection every morning at around 6am.
The guest house is very clean although a bit tatty in areas, like door frames and skirting boards. Bed linen was clean although the throws on top looked like they weren't washed for every guest.
Breakfast was okay you get 1 croissant per guest, then there's bread, ham, cheese, eggs, cereal, cake, biscuits, yogurt tea and coffee and juice.
The staff were very friendly and helpful. They even researched the local train times for me and printed me a copy.
Free WiFi is a bonus at times I did find it difficult to connect to the internet but this only seemed to be around 10pm the rest of the time I had no problems.
The Metro is a short walk away in the town about 5 minutes max.
The only thing I didn't like was not having a safe deposit box in the room but we didn't have any problems with the items we left lying around in our room, at one point even the tip we left for the maid was there when we got back.
Good location for getting away from the hustle and bustle of the city but easy links back into the city. A 50 minute walk to the Catacombs.

Positives:
+clean room
+clean restaurant
+staff can speak English
+comfy bed
+huge balcony
+near the station

Negatives:
+wifi : only in the lobby area
+hotel closes at 11 so you need to use another door to get in that is always open!! There is a residents area on the 2nd floor and they don't care to close it properly.
+elevator was ancient!! Missing buttons (and the door doesn't close properly, it also makes scary noises)
+no safety boxes
+no refrigerators
+ the breakfast buffet only lets you take 2 of each item max!!
+ the blow dryer is ancient!
+ rooms have only one lock and you have to lock it again with the same key on the inside to close the door
+mountains of trash in front of the building
+the whole area around the hotel was littered with garbage
+sketchy area
+stinks
+channels limited

Would I come back?
No. I guess it's good for students or people who are saving money.

I should have paid extra for a better hotel but hey! At least the room was clean.

First impression was ruined by the amount of trash gathered in front of it. Only to see later that entire Rome is like this... Pretty disappointing.
Except for the sync which was malfunctioning and water went off too slow, the rest was pretty OK. I haven't picked a 4* hotel, after all.
Breakfast was symbolic, not something to offer you the energy to travel

We recently stayed at the City Guest House for 4 nights.

It is basic accommodation with no frills, which was fine as you only sleep there. The room and bathroom was clean and the bed comfortable. The continental breakfast was adequate.

There is a nice cafe on the next street corner, where the locals hangout, with reasonably prized pizza, beer and coffee. A great place for a quick bite before you go to bed.

The staff was friendly and helpful. We will stay there again.
