Family of 5 (all adults) in on....
Stayed here while in Rome for a couple of days on a marathon Euro trip... check in was fast and friendly. She was very helpful with maps and directions to transportation. We also had reservations at a place far away and the front desk scheduled our cab as well. The room was very nice with two large beds. We had plenty of room for the 5 of us to get ready. I cant really think of any reason not to like it. There was plenty of shopping in the area with markets and food aplenty. We loved having a big window we could open and watch all of the military men and women come and go. Side note the italian uniforms are beautiful! word of caution DO NOT SIT ON THE STEPS IN FRONT OF THE CHECK IT. Apparently that is a big NO NO as my 17 year old was told more than once to move... LOL kids!!! Breakfast was good to get us plenty of energy to do the tourist stuff for a few hours before we needed to eat. In the end it was a great choice for my family... close to touristy stuff and to the main train station for our next segment. Ciao! :-) (note that we were here in June 2016 not 2017 but TA doesnt let us choose that year)

We checked in and where given room 413
Soon entering the room we where met with a smell of urine.
The room was covered in mold.The wardrobe had hole in the back and the doors where poorly fitted. The safe was locked shut and unusable.
The bathroom was filthy and smelt. The ceiling was covered in Black mold. There was NO HOT WATER. We where unable to wash our hands and unable to shower.
The room was freezing cold and the bed sheets where old blankets.
The next morning I went to reception to complain.
I was told that there was no hot water in the whole building due to an issue. And as it was a bank holiday nothing could be done until the next day.
I asked to be moved due to the condition of the room. Initially I was told no but then offered a room on the same floor.
The second room 404 did not have the mold or the smell. But still no hot water.
We where told the next day we could move again. And that there would be no hot water until the next day.
I don’t think it’s acceptable to have no hot water for 3 days. We where not able to wash or wash our hands after using the toilet.
We received no apology or no refund!
The room was thick with dust. Only one plug working with a blackened extension plug in it.
Walls where half painted and holes everywhere.
Bed sheets where old and smelt fousty.
The pictures online did not look like the room we where given.
We had no choice but to search for alternative accommodation.
The hotel did offer to move us to a renovated room on day 3.
The lift was also broken and we where told this would take a further day to fix.
We where offered to use a communal bathroom that had hot water. But the thought of climbing the four floors and using a different building put me off.
On the morning we checked out early I had to beg to receive a refund for the remaining days that we wouldn’t be staying.
We did receive this in the end.
All in all for the £55 per night (approx)
I expected hot running water, clean rooms and empathetic staff.
Sadly the first two days of our holiday where Ruined by having to use a dirty bathroom and have cold showers. Pictures are of room 404.
Location wise is great. But sadly that’s all the positive things I can say about this hotel.
No offer of a refund or no apology.
Tip if you do decide to stay or have booked email ahead and ask for a renovated room.
Take footware to wear in the shower.
WiFi was good.

Air conditioning was not functional and it took over tow days to get somebody to repair it. Wi-fi doesn't work on the floors. Old carpets with smelly rooms. Can't stand in the lobby as it is supposedly disrupting other guests... Definitely not worth the price.

Super friendly staff at conven....
Even before I arrived in Rome, Marta and Irene were quick to follow up my enquiries and offer advice on travel and booking for excursions that I was planning during my stay.
I received a warm welcome from Marta, on arrival, after my short walk from Termini Station - a very convenient location, if you want to avoid having to catch the Metro or a bus from the station.
It was only 32 minutes to Termini Station, on the direct Leonardo Express, from Fiumicino Airport, at a cost of €14 - much cheaper than a taxi, which would be around €40. Be sure to check out Mercato Centrale Roma, in the station, for a lively line-up of Rome's best food producers, but do be vigilant by the station, for pickpockets, like any major city.
Trains depart every half hour, from 6:23 to 23:33. Follow directions for the train and purchase a ticket from one of the self service machines in the airport. It's essential to validate your ticket before you ride.
The return train to Fiumicino, from Termini Station, departs from platform 24, on the far right. Again, it's quite easy to use the self service machines to purchase your ticket. You can validate it on the platform.
So, in a little over 10 minutes walk from the station, using Google Maps (or an App like Citymapper, which also provides live information on alternative modes of travel) I was settling into my hotel room.
As a solo traveller, it was very reassuring to find that the staff were so friendly and ready to offer advice on your day ahead. I was given a map, which one of the staff would pen in the best route to any location in the city.
I hardly ever used the Metro, instead walked, for fear of missing something overground, but you'll find Repubblica on Metro Line A in the nearby Piazza from which it takes its name. There is a branch of upmarket food chain, Eataly, on the right side of Piazza della Repubblica, approached from Via Nazionale.
I used the Metro on my journey to Ottaviano - San Pietro, for my trip to the Vatican City, on the other side of the river, which is only 5 stops away. I also used Line B from Termini, once, on my trip to Ponte Mammolo, from where I took the hour-long Cotral Bus to Villa d'Este, Tivoli.
The Centro Storico area of the city, home to sights like The Pantheon and Piazza Navona, for example, is a bit further to the left of the city, but I still managed the walk, which I did within about 25 minutes. Trastevere is a bit further, across the river, but still manageable.
The hotel provides a sweet breakfast of croissants, cakes, cereal and yoghurt, with bread rolls and occasional slices of Dairylea-style cheese, and ham. Coffee is delivered with a smile, when you are seated, by a lovely lady who anticipated my request for an Americano. Juice and water are also available.
Even when my return flight with Monarch was cancelled, when they ceased trading, I was reassured by Marta that I would be able to extend my stay. Fortunately, the Civil Aviation Authority arranged my flight, courtesy of the UK government, and I flew home within an hour of my original time.
I would definitely recommend this hotel, especially for the solo traveller, for its convenient location within walking distance of the station and main sights. You can't have it all, of course, when you're on a budget, but you would be hard pushed to find such a splendid stay for the price!
Thank you, Marta, and all of the staff, for a very comfortable and pleasant stay.

conveniet place to walk to the....
Hotel is situated on the quiet street near the Ministry of Internal Affair, so it is also very safety place. To the Termini station 5-10 minutes walk. To the main fountains 10-15 minutes walk and also to the Coliseum and Forum 15-20 minutues walk. Also 5 minutes walk to the Subway station with direct line to Vatican. So it is very convenient place to visit a lot of Rome historical places. Breakfast was tipical Italian with different sweets but also they offered some cheese and meet and corn with yoghurt or milk. Apart nearby you can find a lot of cafes, bars and restorants with various price levels. Very helpful staff they were trying to help us everytime when we needed with a good advice. Quiet good wifi. There were some problems with hot water but staff solved them as fast as they could. Also in the room prefcticaly was no sound insulation, but this was only one negative point.
