I booked this hotel through an agency that uses it a lot. We were two parties, one of two people, one of two adults and a child.
The hotel has no on site parking-which is normal for Rome. I expected to be sent to a garage, but since we arrived on a Sunday, all of the local garages were closed for most of the day. I eventually found a place on the street nearby and spent two days worrying about it. But it turned out to be fine.
There is a bus stop right outside the hotel and several places to buy tickets are nearby. But none are open on Sunday either.
The triple room was large enough for the three of us with luggage, but the double was pretty tight. The rooms were clean and the plumbing was better than at other hotels I have stayed at in Rome.
Breakfast was subpar for this price, but was not bad. The nearby restaurant was expensive and not very good. But others sitting there seemed to enjoy it so maybe that was just us. We ate there once and went elsewhere after that and enjoyed that far more.
The air conditioning worked great and the rooms were quite. It is a 15 minute walk to the Vatican from here and you can catch a cab from the main street, but no cab in town had ever heard of this hotel so coming back from downtown was a problem every time we tried it. Get an address and mark it on the map before you leave the hotel, or have them drop you off at the Vatican and walk.
The hotel would only accept payment in cash. There is an ATM around the corner, but we had limits on how much we could take out a day and this was a problem. Good thing we brought extra cash for emergencies.
Rome is expensive. I know that and don't have high expectations of any hotel inside the city. For 160 Euros for a triple, we got straight up average rooms and average meals. I have no complaints and would not talk anyone out of going here, but neither would I be quick to send anyone here.
