    It is not very central and not a lot close by. Rooms were noisy.

    It was close to a metro station which made it easy to get around. Breakfast was lovely. Room was small but comfortable and quirky.

    Shower was too small. You have to turn off shower to soap up and turn it on to rinse. Turning around in shower is hard and you can bump the water faucet thus turning the warm water to freezing water. Warm foods at breakfast got cold quickly.

    View from our room (104) was French Embassy, which once was called Villa Bonaparte. Napoleon's sister lived there. It's a five minute walk to the Porta Pia area where Garibaldi breeched the Roman wall and freed Rome from the control of the Papal States in 1870. There are two cinemas nearby, the Europa on Corso d' Italia and the Savoy on Via Bergamo. Small PAM supermarket is a one-minute walk when you exit the hotel's front door to the right. There are many restaurants on via Flavia as you exit hotel to the left. Gelateria La Romana at corner of via Piave and via Venti Settembre. Gelateria Caruso nearby: turn left from hotel to via Flavia, turn right, then turn right on via Collina. There are many shopping opportunies with a 200-meter radius of hotel. There is a satellite-linked Rome publc transit bus stop across the street. At least four bus lines stop there; a couple go to Termini. Taxi rank is around the corner, or hotel staff will call a tax for you. Excllent variety of food at hreakfast, including American pancakes.

    Room temperature & the temperature in the lift was extremely hot!

    The crib request was well attended - basically just with an email request the hotel staff ensured to have everything ready for check-in. This type of service generally does not comes so nicely even with multiple requests even in 5-star hotels. Most importantly the crib was clean & our 2 year old enjoyed sleeping into it.

    The air conditioner in the room seemed to not work. The TV was very difficult to use. The lift took a very long time and did not feel sturdy using it. The room was very small and didn't have much space to walk around the room as the bed took up nearly all of the room.

    The breakfast was nice and the shower was powerful. The location was perfect for me as it wasn't busy and it was peaceful.

    The shower wasn't great, no consistent hot water and water trickled out. Only went for breakfast on the first morning as the rice had a hair in it and there were ants running round by the honey and maple syrup. The chef in the kichen also had dance/rave music playing quite loudly at 8am in the morning. The hotel didn't seem very clean, there was dust along the skirting in the lobby and the room had dust along the door frames and in the wardrobe.

    The bed and pillows seemed to be of good quality and were comfy.

    It was not possible to shower without flooding the bathroom floor. This was the only major fault of the room. The room was quite dark during the day, with little light reaching the window and there was no view. If you only stay for sleeping it's perfect, but if you also like enjoying the room during the day, perhaps not the best room. I only stayed for sleeping so it was no problem for me.

    The location was good, the room was nice and staff was very friendly. Very quiet and comfortable bed.

Will definitely go back. All of your major landmarks are within an hours walk, most within 30 mins which we loved because we got to explore the real Rome! Excellent city.

    Nothing really, except twisting my ankle one day while on a tour. I called the reception to ask for a bag of ice and was gruffly told that the receptionist couldn't leave because he was alone, but if I came down he could give me the ice. I kind of wondered if he understood that I hurt my ankle....

    The staff was generally friendly (except one man who was kind of surly...). The breakfast spread was great- not and cold options! The options are slightly limited for vegans, I imagine, but as an omnivore, I got enough to last me most of the day! I'd happily stay here again!
