Booking.com Guest Review GuidelinesTo keep the rating score and review content relevant for your upcoming trip, we archive reviews older than 24 months.
Only a customer who has booked through Booking.com and stayed at the property in question can write a review. This allows us to verify that our reviews come from real guests like you. Who better to tell others about the free breakfast, friendly staff, or their comfortable room than someone who’s stayed at the property?
We want you to share your story, with both the good and the not-so-good. All we ask is that you follow a few simple guidelines.
We believe review contributions and property responses will highlight a wide range of opinions and experiences, which is critical in helping guests make informed decisions about where to stay.
Contributions to Booking.com are a reflection of the dedication of our guests and properties, so we treat them with the utmost respect.
Whether negative or positive, we'll post every comment in full, as quickly as possible, after it's moderated to comply with Booking.com guidelines. We'll also provide transparency over the status of submitted content.
After a review has been submitted, you can modify it by contacting Booking.com customer service.
We'll use the same guidelines and standards for all user-generated content, and for the property responses to that content.
We'll allow the contributions to speak for themselves, and we won’t be the judge of reality. Booking.com’s role is to be a feedback distributor for both guests and properties.
Guidelines and Standards for Reviews
These guidelines and standards aim to keep the content on Booking.com relevant and family-friendly, without limiting expression or strong opinions. They're also applicable regardless of the comment's tone.
Contributions should be travel related. The most helpful contributions are detailed and help others make better decisions. Please don’t include personal, political, ethical, or religious commentary. Promotional content will be removed and issues concerning Booking.com’s services should be routed to our Customer Service or Accommodation Service teams.
Contributions should be appropriate for a global audience. Please avoid using profanity or attempts to approximate profanity with creative spelling, in any language. Comments and media that include hate speech, discriminatory remarks, threats, sexually explicit remarks, violence, or the promotion of illegal activity are not permitted.
All content should be genuine and unique to the guest. Reviews are most valuable when they are original and unbiased. Your contribution should be yours. Booking.com property partners should not post on behalf of guests or offer incentives in exchange for reviews. Attempts to bring down the rating of a competitor by submitting a negative review will not be tolerated.
Respect the privacy of others. Booking.com will make an effort to obscure email addresses, telephone numbers, website addresses, social media accounts, and other similar details.
The opinions expressed in contributions are those of Booking.com customers and properties, and not of Booking.com. Booking.com does not accept responsibility or liability for any reviews or responses. Booking.com is a distributor (without any obligation to verify) and not a publisher of these comments and responses.
By default, reviews are sorted based on the date of the review and on additional criteria to display the most relevant reviews, including but not limited to: your language, reviews with text, and non-anonymous reviews. Additional sorting options might be available (by type of traveler, by score, etc...).

눉The bathroom was so small and the shower was barely big enough to stand in. The bed was really uncomfortable and every time the owners yelled (which was all the time) I could hear them in my room. There was a weird food smell all the time.
눇The elderly couple who own the place are lovely and friendly, but they dont speak any English

눇Really good hotel. Good breakfast - crossaint, bread, nutella, jam, honey, ham, cheese, eggs, no limit juice. Service clean your room everyday. They don't speak english but it's really funny speak with Them. We musn't buy the public transport tickets: 10minutes to Coloseum, 15-20minutes to another old roma buildings on foot.

눉If you're looking for panoramic views from your bedroom, characterless 'corporate' décor or multi-lingual receptionists go elsewhere. If you want good, safe basic accommodation in a good location for sightseeing this is the place!
눇The elderly couple who run the hotel are lovely people, very friendly and constantly cheerful. Breakfasts, while fairly basic, provided a great start to each day.The hotel is very handy for the metro, mainline trains/buses and Colosseum and Forums.

눉The biggest problem was the wifi (Internet). There were some instructions on the wall how to connect, but connection still wasn't working (probably they would need to reset the router). Although the truth is also, that I didn't bother my head with this stuff. Probably if I would say something they would repair the connection or provide me the password for another wifi signal. If you are an EU citizen and you are using just a simple messenger, email app and maps to navigate through the city, the data roaming of 160 transferred megabytes (MB) should be enough for a week and then the bill for transfer shouldn't be higher then 10 € if you also have unused package of MB at home mobile signal provider. And the roaming will be even cheaper in June 2017 (even free for calls and SMS). I also noticed that the TV wasn't working. But hey, who would watch the TV in such a beautifull city. The bed could be more comfortable and maybe the walls should be repainted. Also the neighbourhood near the Termini city doesn't looks very friendly, especially in the night. But I didn't have problems. Just walk and don't stop with the luggage till the hotel and you should be fine. I also didn't have problems later on when I returned late at night or early in the morning from the vicinity of Termini station. This kind of problems have all the big cities in the world so it shouldn't be such a drawback as it has better even better advantage (no need of taxi when you arrive). All in all those were very minor problems and can't overwhelm the advantages of this accomodation. A very, very good place for the paid money. I will definetly return.
눇The location of hotel is very very good. You can easily access the Hotel from Termini train station, and access the sightseeing places later (for example Colosseum is very close, old Roman forum, Palatine hill, Piazza Venezia, also old town etc.). If you are a potential student who is still looking for the accomodation in the city, the University of Sapienza on the other side of the railway is also very close. Of course everything is accesible by foot. If you don't want to walk then the tram and city bus station is on the end of the street. The Metro station Vittorio Emanuelle is also in proximity. The Hotel staff (presumably senior couple) are extremely friendly and very understanding, although they speak little English. But no worries, as I said I have seen the guests who also didn't speak a word of English or Italian, but they still manage to understand each other with the Hotel staff. You will talk with hands in Italian way ;) For the paid price, the breakfast was very good (manually made coffe or tee, fruit juice, fresh bread, salami, nutella, honey, jam, store packed croissant and roulade). I liked the small and clean private bathroom. Heated room also had a big private terrace and the accomodation was in first floor, which was great. The sheets on the bed were clean, they provided towels and they cleaned the room and made the bed every day. All in all a very, very good place for the paid money. I will definetly return.

눉They don't speak English which was extremely inconvenient for me as I could not ask everything I wanted. Also I didn't have a key from the main door and all the time when I was coming back late I had rang the doorbell and woke them up. Felt uncomfortable a bit.
눇The couple is very friendly and nice. Location is good, not far from colosseum. They are trying to do their best when hosting you. Good value for money

눉The old couple speak mainly Italian, so, if you do not understand Italian, there may be some communication problems.
눇The location is good, just one stop from Termini. It is also very close to tube station, around 5-10 minutes walk. The room is clean, and the old couples are very nice. I enjoyed my stay here.

눇Very nice hotel for the price paid. The hotel needs a renovation in the furniture and bathrooms but for the price you cannot ask more than that. It was very nice and clean, 10 min walking from the colosseo with a metro station near the hotel and even the owners didn't speak English they were so nice and kind that it was not relevant. Is the kind of hotel that you kind of use to sleep and have breakfast. The breakfast is more than enough. I would be back there definitely!

눉A small hotel where English-speaking staff is not available at any hour, so you'd better know some Italian. Breakfast time range 8:00-9:30 maybe somewhat narrow (desires could vary between business days and weekends) but I didn't try to ask for a special time. Bottom of desk drawer was quite worn out, but I didn't need it and there were other drawers.
눇Fairly good price and location. Breakfast with bread (ham, sausage, cheese), croissant, omelette etc. is fully sufficient though not as many options as in a big hotel. Room fully functional and clean. Had air conditioning, TV and Europlug electrical socket (not the older Italian three-hole).
