Only for low budget reason
We stay in the accommodation for two nights. Don't think we will be manage any longer. Very noisy room with the window at the front of the building on a very busy big road. Beds and bedding are not good at all. On our arrival the toilet seat was broken, the show head wasn't fixed, the hair dryer didn't work. On the next day everything was fixed, however, the used towels which were left on the bathroom floor, were handed back unchanged, no toilet paper was left and dirty coffee cups were left on the room table. It was a young man on reception when we came back to the hotel after a busy day. He didn't speak English and unfortunately couldn't find even the toilet paper...On the same night the coffee machine by reception was turned off and we couldn't find any cups (compare to the first night when hot drinks were available). The only good points were: 1. great location within walking distance to Collesium and Palazzo Venezia and 5 min walk from the main train station. 2. Low price for accommodation- but that explains everything I wrote above.

5 days in Rome - bad toilet an....
The room was ok (big). Quality vs. price was not so bad. The worst thing was bathroom. It was awful. Without slippers it could be difficult to take showers. Mold and fungus over the wall and ceiling. It looks very disgusting.

Dissapointing, avoid this hote....
The room we booked didn't look anything like the pictures. It was gross and dirty:
- The walls had all kinds of stains on them, from different colours to actual dirt and grease,
- the furniture is old and broken in many places, greasy as well and full of stains of previous guests, the best way to describe it is that it looks like something someone wanted to throw away, but decided to give it to a friend or a charity,
- there were stains on the floor like something was spilled and never cleaned,
- the bed was not a double bed like we booked but two single beds put together, which were pulling away from each other constantly during the night, cousing one of us to fall in the hole in between
- the beds were awful, old, and had no bed covers below the sheets, and were very uncomfortable with metal springs poking you in various places at all times,
- we didn't have a water boiler as the booking said and the fridge was dirty and gross,
- all the light switches and remotes were literally yellow from grease
- the wi-fi was very slow, you couldn't watch a video. Because of that, most of the time we were on our mobile data
Oh the dreadful scene:
- The first thing is the smell which made the whole room smell like canalisation and fungus throught our whole stay,
- The shower was the most disgusting thing I saw in my life, fungus and scale everywhere around, somebodys body hair in it, and the worst thing - everywhere on the walls there was some kind of a yellow greasy residue from who knows what
- the toothbrush holder cup was dirty completely
- we didn't have any cold water on the faucet in the sink, they fixed it the second day after we complained but then it LEAKED over the whole bathroom, which we cleaned ourselves, and after that it was leaking behind the sink for the rest of our stay. After they "fixed" the sink, you needed to wait for some time to get a bit of warm water,
- we found cockroaches on the bathroom wall which you can see in the picture below.
In the end, we decided to go and buy our own cleaning supplies and CLEAN THE ROOM OURSELVES completely as we were so grossed out. We also got an air freshener to try and get the smell of canalisation out, unsuccesfully. Even though this is a 2 star hotel and we didn't expect much, we expected it to at least be clean. That is the bare minimum you can give to your guests as an accomodation provider.
There were only 2 good things. The location, and the daily maid service.

I left early
It's not often that you leave a hotel before you've actually slept there. I was completely dissatisfied with this hotel for nuerous reasons, the least of which were the paper-thin walls. I didn't sneeze for fear the neighboring guests might call out, "Bless you!".
Let's start with the positive aspect (the one and only which saved this place from me giving it a "terrible" score instead of just "poor"). The staff. Both people I dealt with during my "stay" at this place were extremely accommodating and friendly. They did everything they could to resolve all the problems I had while I was there - which considering I was only at the hotel for a total of two-three hours altogether, that seems incredible.
When I first checked in, I went into the room I'd reserved, which had been 30 euro for one night (in January) and that did not include breakfast the next day. The room was almost as small as that of a hotel room in London. The size didn't bother me. It was the fact that the heater didn't work. When I lay down on the bed, there was a small black curly hair awaiting me at the pillow - which was just wonderful to see.
When I called the lady on duty into my room to help me fix the heater, she spent about ten minutes playing with the remote trying to get it to work, until she finally gave up (after moving furniture, clicking the switches and standing in the room that didn't allow two people to stand in at once - I actually had to sit on the bed to allow room for both of us). She finally said that once the other room was cleaned up, she would move me into that one. I asked her about how long that would be and she said twenty minutes.
I waited. Thirty minutes later I came out (freezing) to the lobby and asked her if the other room was ready. She said it would be thirty minutes and said I neeeded to be patient. I didn't have time to wait as I had to leave, so she said she'd move my luggage into the other room once it was ready. That was fine.
When I came back to my new room several hours later, it was much larger, and seemed much nicer. As with the other room, when I lay down on the bed there were a lot of springs, it was lumpy and terribly uncomfortable. I needed to get ready to go out again for the evening, so I went to start the shower. The floors by the way were so cold it felt like I was stepping on blocks of ice in the bathroom, so a word to the wise, make sure you take slippers with you (and also there is no soap or other luxuaries of the sort provided at this hotel - come prepared)!
I turned the shower on, and left it on hot...for ten minutes...twenty minutes...until finally I gave up, and had to get dressed and go out to reception once again. A man was on duty now, and he was more than friendly and helpful. He came into my room and tried to play with the faucet. He couldn't get it to turn hot. He went into the back of the hotel to fix something, and couldn't manage. It took him about thirty minutes to do something - until finally the water was simply luke warm. Totally unacceptable in my opinion. A hotel should have basics, like hot water.
At least the heater was working in this room?
I left and came back a few hours later, and decided to check out, as I'd found a better hotel while I was out. I didn't like that I'd paid the thirty Euro already, and would love a refund since I never actually ended up sleeping there.
In addtion, the building is old, the elevator scared me to death because there are two sets of doors and I was faced with a grate when I opened the set that I'd closed originally getting on the elevator, and thought that the lift had stalled. When I came back that evening, someone had not shut the inside elevator doors, and I had to walk up three large flights of stairs to get to the hotel.
All in all, I definitely do not recommend this hotel! It's a little bit farther from Termini train station than google maps suggests - walking quickly and knowing exactly where I was going once I'd found it, it takes exactly 10 minutes to the front entrance of the train station: that's once you know where the hotel is, which isn't super easy to find.
