10/10 Exceptional

Charming and convenient
Beautiful hotel in a great location. We flew into Rome before heading to Amalfi. This was a perfect first night on our honeymoon. The bed was firm and comfortable. The bathroom had a tub and soaking in it after walking 25k steps around Rome was heavenly. The breakfast bar offered was really nice. Although the stay was short, would not hesitate to book again. Thank you!

Yellowish, stained, chipped, and little smelly toilet seat totally did not go with the rest of the room which looked good and clean. It does cost more than 20 euros to replace it and people will not be grossed out to use the toilet. Front desk was nice. Would stay again but would hate to stay in the room with that toilet seat :)

Clean hotel.
Medium size hotel. 15 min walk from Garbatella Metro stop, or 25 min from Piramide Metro stop. Nice area. Functional room. Rome is massively expensive after covid so be preoaref to dish out over a 100€ for..nothing much really.

6/10 Good

This property is what we were looking for outside of the city limits and therefore much more inexpensive. It was what we needed as a stopover after our incoming flight. But it is very much removed from the core of Rome and bus tickets are hard to buy. We walked about 10 minutes to bus station to buy tickets and we’re able tour trastevere. Didn’t feel comfortable bussing back so took taxi. The room we were given at first was not what we booked perhaps because of difference between what Europe and Expedia classify as a child. But front desk was very good to find an appropriate room. Beds were comfortable. Great shower. But room had been smoked in and we are pretty sure we heard rats scurrying in the middle of the night 😕 It was fine for having somewhere to sleep for a night but would not have an extended stay here.

8/10 Very good

The room was fairly large as was the bathroom, and the bed was comfortable. The hotel was on a main roadway and hence there was a lot of noise (plus there was construction going on at the building next door which started up very early in the morning and was not appreciated). There were not many restaurant choices nearby within walking distance but that turned out to be not an issue, as the in-hotel restaurant was very good, and we ended up eating there both nights. The hotel is fairly convenient to the Apian Way, which we wanted to see. Breakfast was pretty good.
