  • Group of friends

    No air conditioner and service of staff was rude, not willing to serve.

  • Couple

    Staff at the front-desk and restaurant are incredibly nice. The breakfast is really great. Room is very good, big, clean, and cosy. It is located two big blocks from the metro station (like 7 min walking distance).

    There were only two minor issues for me: (1) No internet in the rooms, just in the lobby. (2) The bath box is too small. But overall, it is a great hotel and I highly recommend.

    The hotel was very clean and it's design was vriendly ery nice (boutique style). The staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel has Wifi, but unless you are staying on the first floor, you likely to only have internet from the hotel lobby (there is a desktop guests can use). However, the lobby of the hotel is very cosy and welcoming, we liked coming back from a city daytrip to sit on the comfortable sofas while grabbing a drink from the hotel bar. We would definitely go back to this hotel.

    It's a bit out of the city, but there is a metro station (Marconi) 5 minutes away (by foot) from the hotel that will take you into the city in less than a 10 minute ride. We chose the location because we have family living nearby.

    The breakfast was a buffet with good variety of italian cuisine. Close to metro line b marconi station.

    The room was very small, the wc too small and shower cabin extra small. The carpets on reception areas & room was dirty. The neighborhood at night was full of prostitutes. The total value for money was negative, because it was too expensive for a four star hotel (which is not).

  • Single

    Worst 4 stars hotel i've been for 15 years: No restaurant in the hotel, no wifi in the room, no desk in the room, microscopic soap, no laundry service during the week-end (and no iron to lend me), no restaurants around the hotel but many prostitutes in this area that makes the area very unsecure and not safe. No heating in my room in the middle of october!! I've been very cold at nights. The computer in the lobby wasn't working properly: not connected to wifi and keyboard broken. In conclusion, the Worst 4 stars hotel i've ever been, and I would definetly not recommend this hotel to anyone, even to my ennemies.

    Modern, stylish and clean. Very good cappuccino for breakfast!

    WiFi only in Lobby, did not work at second time login on the next morning.

    The location and nothing else!

    This hotel was advertised as a 4 star! The carpets were absolutedly disgusting in the whole hotel including the reception area - they desperately need to be replaced. We had booked for 4 people and were given one room with a double bed and 2 single beds squeezed in. The hotel needs to be repainted as the walls were very marked and dirty. This hotel need to be downgraded to at least a 2 star although they do charge 4 star prices! Will not recommend this hotel to anybody. We travelled through most of Italy and this was indeed the worse hotel that we stayed in.

    Spaceous,modern, reception and bar areas.Reception staff very helpful.

    Air conditioning unit in room was on full but had little effect.Shower cubicle was small and is difficult to access unless you have a sylph like figure.The lift shaft is on the outside of the building exposed to the full heat of the sun.When the doors closed and the lift failed to move, I was a little worried.Thankfully, the doors opened again and the staff resolved this minor problem.

  • Single

    Quiet, unobtrusive, close to city train line and buses.

    Carpeting in room slightly soiled and tired. Otherwise room was very clean and promptly serviced.

    Excellent personnel in Hotel Area. Very fascilitating! Quite, clean and warm room!

    For the 1st night (New Year Eve) we were sent to Saint Paul Hotel (Santa Basilica) because of a technical problem of Hotel Area. Of course the transportation to and from the new hotel was paid from the Area Hotel. As long as the facilities of the hotel is concerned, for a 4 stars hotel, is was quite poor!!! From breakfast, till the accessories in the room.

  • Older travelers

    Location, 5 mins walk to the underground and 25 mins from Ciampino. The buffet breakfast was good and had a varied selection of food.

    The room was small and very hot, couldn't see how to adjust the temperature so opened the windows. There were stains on the carpet which was off putting even though bed linen, bathroom etc was clean.

  • Couple
    4.2

    The carpets in the hotel are very dirty - common areas as well as the room. Internet did not work in common areas and the hotel staff was not qualified to fix it, nor did it put any urgency to fix it. The photos of the hotel on Booked.net do not represent fairly the condition of the hotel.

    close to public transportation, rich breakfast, cleanness
