Perfect stay
This hotel is perfect : Front desk staff , restaurant staff and housekeeping staff are friendly, helpful and accommodating . The hotel , from the entrance to the rooms are so clean ; beds and linens are clean , bed matresses and pillows are comfortable , even the sofa bed was comfortable. Towels are huge and very clean. The location is close to Cipro train station , Vatican is the next stop. From hotel to the Vatican is only about 20 minutes walk ( my normal pace, not a brisk walk ). Breakfast is the best ! Overall, this is a perfect hotel for normal income travellers . I would stay in this hotel again ifi get the chance to travel to Rome, and i would recommend this to my family and friends.

A Memorable Experience and Fabulous Staff
Great staff! Wonderful food and service at all three restaurants; cocktails were amazing too! Clean rooms and AC a must in the heat of late Sept. This location was close to Vatican City and Bonci’s famous Pizza. Live DJ at dinner Fri-Sat. Don’t be put off that it caters to LGBTQ in the highlights for this property. Families and couples and even business group travelers of all age ranges were staying here. The hotel simply has an edgy styling and they must treat their staff very well because every single person over our 3 night stay had such positive attitudes and really took care of their guests no matter how crazy busy it was at front desk or restaurants.

10/10 Exceptional

We stayed for a week with our 2 children aged 3 and 8. It was a great hotel for a family stay. Our kids loved the Vespa for posing, the old-school arcade games and foosball table and the pool. We loved the wide choice at breakfast, the coffee, the free films on the TV in our room and the fact that the hotel wi-fi stretched to the rooftop bar so we could have a cocktail while the girls entertained themselves. The pool is small - our boisterous family could make it unpleasant for everyone else- but good for an afternoon/evening wind-down and we found booking a swim session fine. The local area is much more interesting than it looks at first with lots of great (and well priced) restaurants in walking distance. Try Bonci, Jolly, Viva Rosso and Birra Mangiere for a relaxed but delicious evening.

Everything was exceptional. Highly recommendable. The only thing I did not like was the location of the toilet. I had to take the toilet roll of the holder to comfortably sit down as it was in the way. Just a minor point but nonetheless.
