Pretty dated in some aspects, but some aspects it added to the charm.

While we stayed here for two nights and we essentially stayed outside anyways, the hotel itself was pretty dated. The hotel room keys are pretty massive and heavy and you had to surrender the key to the staff prior to exiting for your daily activities in Rome. It definitely had that old hotel smell. The washroom furniture were all rusting. There was also a cord which I'm not sure what it was for. I thought it was for the exhaust fan because there was none so I tried pulling it multiple times and nothing happened. But to be fair, their toiletries were pretty high-quality and were fun to use. Their styling of their breakfast buffet actually added to the old hotel charm as well. So that would be a plus for me. Their lobby also looked like a typical living room so it added to that sense of home.

Likely the worst hotel I have ever stayed at. And I travel weekly. A poor travel agency booked us here and refused to change it. We had multiple stops here and multiple rooms. The first had an unusable showers. All had rock hard beds with thin concrete pillows. But the worst part of all and the real reason to stay away is the lack of AC. The AC they do have barely works and then they turn the AC off to the entire building at night. Sweltering you open the windows, only to be drowned out by street noise. None of us slept a wink the whole time we were there. Belongs as a mild form of torture in a torture museum. Breakfast is good though.
Below average!! Wouldn’t recommend

We stayed here for 4 nights and the experience was well below average. Check-in - Upon arrival, check in was fast, almost too fast, no information about a room safe, we were offered no help with luggage to our rooms, the welcome just didn’t feel warm. Bedrooms - The rooms need updated. Nothing like the photos on any website. The decor was old, the paint was cracking in most places, and the bathroom was so so small. Cleanliness - The cleaners did a good job and cleaned the rooms daily with fresh towels etc. Noise - The noise on a night time was the most annoying thing. The balcony door did not close properly which was reported to reception, I was told that this would be repaired but it wasn’t. The walls and ceilings were paper thin, you could hear people talking late at night and I can honestly say I did not get a good night’s sleep across the entire stay. Breakfast - average. Pastries, cheese, ham, cereals, coffee machine. Generally quiet on a morning. Location - taxi to the Vatican cost us €25 and took 25 minutes. We learned to use the subway which is convenient and takes you to most places. Subway stations either way are around a 10 minute walk away from the hotel. The restaurant down the street, ‘Momart Café’, I would recommend and there is a supermarket next door to this restaurant which was ideal. The general feeling was that the hotel was a bit far from the main attractions, and the area was very residential with not many English speakers. Summary - The negatives completely outweigh the positives for the hotel. Below 3 star for me, I paid £1100 for the stay including flights and will not be staying here again.
Noisy and small rooms. Nice staff.

We came here for a family trip in October. Room was very small, so we can barely move. Even the door to the bathroom was not possible to fully open, due to the lack of the space between the wall and beds. We asked for the separated beds, but it was just like few centimeters between them. The hotel was very noisy, I understand one reason - noisy guests, it is not the hotel fault, but windows they have, they are not canceling the noise from the street. It feels like the window is open all night and since the hotel is near the very busy street, the noise was there almost all the night. Equipment deserves the reconstruction for sure. Breakfast was very avarege. Staff was really nice. Overall it was good, but we expected more from the 4 star hotel.

We stayed here as part of a contiki tour. Not central location, but we had a tour bus to take us everywhere anyway. Public transport is pretty easy though! Everything is pretty spread out in Rome anyway. The hotel itself is pretty nice. Rooms very spacious which is rare!
