    Toilet did not flush properly, the extractor made too much noise. The bed was not a proper double bed but two single beds joined together so the mattresses kept on slipping. No breakfast was included when booking on booking.com but included when booking through the hotel's website.

    Clean room, very tidy

    Just as a caution, we were in a rear side room and slept fine. If you are in a room on Palestro, you'll be overlooking the Yellow Bar which may be noisy.

    Location was great, only a short walk from many of the attractions. Facilities very good, air con, safe and comfy bed.

    For the money, it was spot on. No complaints. Bought a metro ticket. Subway will take you 80 percent of Rome cheap. Fast. Safe. National Museum at termini is awesome. Discount if you buy package to all museums including capitoline. Worth it.

    Margratee? Receptionist at desk so wonderful. Clean. Simple. Modern. Close to termini for quick transit. Excellent value. Cold A/C. Hot water. Pretty bathroom. Quaint elevator. Comfy bed.

    You have to know what you are booking. This facility is not a 5-Star Hotel. It is a family run business and they go out of their way to accommodate you. It is located nearest the Castro Pretoria Metro, 1 stop on the Blue Line from Termini. Several nice restaurants are located around the corner, including The Living Room, and Brambles.

    The bathroom was quite small so difficult to move around in, the bed was two single mattresses put together on a spring bed frame so it was very noisy and sounded like it was breaking whenever you sat on it. After paying city tax as soon as we arrived at the hotel, the day before we checked out the gentlemen at the desk tried to make us pay for city tax again as he had no record of us paying it.

    The location of this property was fantastic, really easy to find after we arrived at the termini station. When we arrived the lady at the desk was incredibly welcoming and found out for us how much a taxi from the hotel to the airport would be and got this all booked for us. The room was incredible clean and quite. There was a fantastic bar opposite the hotel with live music and entertainment every night called 'The Yellow', would definitely recommend for people who love music and are looking to grab a drink :)

    room didn't has heater and we used noisy AC to warm up during cold January. AC get air dry and it wasn't comfortable overnight. Breakfast is typical Italian continental, which doesn't work for those who used to get full English breakfast.

    Location was great if you planning to travel by train, metro was close as well. Room was small but good for couple, was clean every day and wifi (not important for me) was really great.

    The windows didn't seal properly, which meant street noise and a slight breeze came into the room. As long as we left the heater going, though, the temperature was ok. The bathroom is very small (getting rid of the bidet would give it much-needed space), and the lift is extremely small.

    Great location - we walked to just about everywhere and very close to Termini. There is 24hr reception and the breakfast was good value for money if you just want something simple. Room was clean and as described. The restaurant "Rossi" at the end of the block is fantastic and great value for both breakfast and lunch/dinner.

    The only heating tool was A/C which was too laud during night so we had to turned it off. That made us slightly colder mornings. We were there in December so we needed to heat up the room.

    The hotel claims it's 2 star but I would rate it as 3 star. The room was clean with own bathroom and furniture. The hotel is locate nearby Termini station (10min by walk). Also if you want to see the city and don't want to go by a bus this can be a good option for you. For instance Closeum is about 30min by walk from the hotel. Many other historical attractions are close to each other so you can explore Rome also by the foot.

    Literally five minutes in foot from Roma termini with a very obvious sign outside. Safe area to walk around even in the middle of the night for women alone. A very happening bar(the yellow bar) downstairs which is a little noisy but it's cool. Straight forward nice people. Decent room size with a private bathroom(hot water 24 hours available) along with a balcony with a very nice view. Didn't have breakfast so can't comment. Good value for money. Tip: Try to have dinner at mama Angelo's it's literally downstairs and it's amazing. Ask the management for help if you don't like something and they will be more than helpful

    Breakfast spread isn't great! A pub right opposite the hotel can get a bit noisy during late hours.

    The hotel has a courteous front desk and is conveniently located very close to Roma Termini. Several restaurants right opposite the hotel provide excellent eating options.

    The bed was a foam mattress and not particularly comfy. A few finishing touches were needed, the sink plug didn't work and the some bathroom fittings were up-site-down or not installed with much care.

    Our main reason for booking this hotel as it was very close to Rome Termini station for our transfers in and out of Rome. You get what you pay for; a basic room, with ensuite shower and toilet. Room was clean and the small room we booked was spacious enough. Reception staff were helpful and welcoming.

    Not enough blanket, the blanket is very thin like a sheet of cloth only. Noisy at night as there are a bar and a restaurant just in front of the hotel. It takes around 10-20 stairs to reach the ''ground'' floor of the hotel and the lift, not convenient for those with luggage.

    Very convenient location, 10 mins walk to the Termini station, and 3 mins walk to the Castro Pretorio station. Friendly service! And a very comfort bed!

    The room (or the neighbors) was a bit noisy in the morning. We booked the room without breakfast, but tried the hotel breakfast once - it was not very good, not only for the price but generally. No sausages or cheese, no fruits, etc. So we ate at a neighbor coffee shop which was very nice. The blankets for the bed were weird - I think different country, different habits, but we didn't like that it didn't have a cover, but only a sheet between a normal blanket and us. Sometimes the water in the shower was not warm. The bathroom door could be opened pretty hard from the inside.

    The location. It was fantastic, really. Could not have been better. Both metro lines and many buses were in 5 minutes walking distance. The check in and check out was easy and fast, the staff was nice. Despite the negative things, we would book this hotel again.

    Room was not very confy. They made a king size bad out of two single beds and it was very uncomfortable as they were separating all the time :( hard to sleep. Moreover, bathroom was not very clean, especially the floor of the shower.

    We stayed there 3 nights. Hotel is very close to roma termini, functional for travelling.

    There is nothing what we didnt like.

    We like location of the hotel. It was close to metro, bus or any restaurant. We really like the staff in reception We would like to thank them very much for their help. We really appreciate it. The view from hotel was pretty nice. We liked that we could have a breakfast opposite to hotel, in the yellow bar.

    First I must mention that I had the smallest room but that was my choice. It was a very basic room but overall I believe it is a good balance cost/quality. We experienced some noise in the mornings in the courtyard but I don't believe it was their fault.

    The location is excellent, very close to Termini station. Every day the room was cleaned and towels were changed.

    Refurbishment is still underway, no breakfast available just now, reception on second floor.

    Newly refurbished rooms are much better than the previous decoration

    Building work ongoing. Room heating is by noisy AC units, barely managing 23 degrees. Small room

    Initial problems with room and heating, caused mostly by early check in, were some remedied by excellent, very polite and efficient staff. Great pub across the road! Good location for transport links
