Good Hotel, Great Location

Cons: Air condition/temperature did not seem to be controlled by thermostat in room. At times was to hot in the room.
This is a nice hotel with a great location near the Termini train station. Has an included breakfast. The rooms are nice and the overall facility is nice and updated.

MAKE SURE YOUR PAYMENT IS CONFIRMED UPON CHECK-IN

Pleasant stay, but VERY unpleasant checkout. Make sure when you check-in that everything is in order in regards to payment, etc. and that your file/info at the front desk reflects this. Also, we were charged a 36-Euro city hotel tax that was not part of our original booking - or we were told that and paid that. This really made us feel unhappy after a good week in Rome and created a rush in our getting to the airport because we had to deal with a young/inexperienced front desk clerk who was either mis-informed/didn't know what to do/how handle checkout or he was part of some scheme to get our credit card number/info to steal money from us. In either case, he was rude and insulting and indicated that he would not let us leave unless we gave him more money (we left anyway, but that is not the way to speak to guests).

Great location - Airconditioning is not so great

We stayed two nights at the hotel. The hotel is a 5 min walk from Roma Termini train station and is a 10 min walk to ancient Rome (colosseum, forum etc.). It is accessible to all bus routes and the metro to get to all points of Rome and Vatican. The room was well appointed and updated. The one problem was that it was a duplex room, with the bathroom downstairs (and an office desk and closet too) and bedrooms up on a loft. This means using stairs in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom. The airconditioning was not as great. In fact one of the nights the airconditioning did not work and it was unbearable in the bedroom in the loft (this is mid-may). The hotel just offered an apology and nothing else (I would have hoped they gave us a break on the tariff for the nigh). The airconditioning wasn't that great even when it worked. The hotel did not have a safety box in the room, but they did have safety boxes in the reception area. The breakfast was decent. The services were good. They offered to book sightseeing, they had bell service. We opted for the hotel arranged transport to the airport. They charged us 45 euro for the trip (well worth the money since the airport is quite away from the city). All in all, a good hotel for the price (considering location...location...location).
