I have to admit, I did pick this hotel out. This is a clean budget hotel that is not in the centre. In fact it is on the last stop of the Metro Linea ‘B’. The great thing is you pay less and the Metro journey to all the good stuff is only 10 minutes away. My stay was ok. You just want to know what the matter with it was, don’t you?
This is listed often as a 4 Star Hotel with Fitness facilities. Neither is true. It is in the reasonable EUR area and only 100 meters from Laurentina metro station. There is an excellent World Class restaurant nearby, the staff are helpful and breakfast is good. Why the over-hype, I don’t know. For the price it was good. You will pay a lot more and get a lot worse in Rome. Like I said, it was clean.
Ask for a room facing away from the road. There is no air conditioning (advertised) so you have to lift the heavy shutters at night to get some air. The shutters shut out the noise from the busy road. They had a bar, but it was usually busy.
Why choose this hotel?
It is a decent hotel that is well priced and easy to get into Rome from.
