Small ** hotel with or w/o shared bathroom and with and w/o A/C about 5 min. from Termini station).
My room (#4, ground floor) was extremely tiny. The TV was a joke (too high, very small and only national stations). The bathroom was not all that great but everything worked. The breakfast was extremely bad, a misleading information at the hotel's website ("continental breakfast buffet" - it wasn't continental at all and there was no buffet). Breakfast is not subject for opt-out.
At least the A/C was working and running very quiet (some days later I learned that a fan is enough). The reception is opened 24/7 and the room was very silent. On the window of my room, a giant cockroach tried to check-in! Security is pretty good (locks, smoke detector), but I was missing a fire exit stair. The cleaning was unsatisfactory. My blanked has not been folded, just thrown on the nightstand.
Payment with major credit card is OK. There was no hotel bar, just a common TV room. No signs at the facade about the hotel!
I would not go there again. I was glad when I left for another hotel.
Unique Quality: quiet, no view, telephone, A/C, reservation online was easy, good English skills of the personell
Directions: leave the railway station to your left - Via Cavour is the first large street starting there. The house is on the right hand side two blocks away.
We are staying at this hotel in July and are wondering what is the best way to get from the ciampino airport at 2130 to the hotel.. I believe its near the station which may be handy. We are flying with Ryanair who I think may do a bus service?
Also is the hotel any good?
Yep, you pretty much got it...look at http://www.adr.it/content.asp?Subc=1671&L=3&idMen=204 for more info on the bus...
Lots of reviews at www.venere.com on this hotel...mostly favorable (never been there myself). One of the biggest complaints was the lack of signage outside, so even though it's 200 meters from Termini, people had trouble finding it...
