The hotel has a very different concept where they have placed musical instruments in different parts of the hotel.....they have a big range of music cds at the lobby too....but the hotel rooms are very small.....below average breakfast....and the location is average too...the hotel is not worth the price.....there are many better options in rome at this price..

Hi Mihirbmehta! Thank you for your words! I'm happy that you liked our musical soul and our peculiarities!! I'm sorry to see that you consider our breakfast below average, but.. have you tried it? because really.. it's soo good!! And if you don't trust me.. and all the reviews before confirm my words! Anyway, as the old romans said, "de...

From the moment we arrived to the moment we checked out the staff could not have been any more help or friendlier. This is a fantastic hotel, great location, wonderful theme, great music & decor, and great breakfast too! There was even a gift waiting for us upon arrival - AS Roma merchandise, what a terrific gesture. We will stay...

Very nice hotel, clean rooms, good services. I have travelled with wife and nine years old daughter and it was very kindly to find every day some candies on the bed (especially for daughter). Good location of the hotel, 7-10 min walk to Vatican.

Charming little Hotel in a quiet part of town. 10 minutes walk to the Vatican and to the meeting point of all Vatican tours.

Took us a bit to find it, not a loud location compared to others. It was off the main road tucked away, with a quiet entrance. When we walked in, we could not find the lobby for the life of us. We had a suite on first floor, with walk out porch area. The host were very nice. It looked...

situated a 10 minute walk from the Vatican i can recommend this hotel - it is clean, modern and worth every penny. The sound system in the room was excellent and the english radio station was very good to listen too. The breakfast is basic but filling

This hotel is in a weird location.... 20 minutes north from vatican. Nothing is close by. On the positive there are a few great locals only restaurants such as Bella Napoli (highly recommended!) around the corner. Breakfast is just bad. Bathrooms are just bad. Staff is nice though.

What a nice hotel - tucked on a side street in a nice residential area with several nice places to eat and shop. My wife and I stayed here in September for one night and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

The hotel is in a residential neighborhood a ten minute walk from the Vatican area, so the nearby shops and restaurants are more authentic and less pricy than those in touristy areas. It has a fun music theme, and is nicely updated in the furnishings, electronics, thermostat, and fixtures. Upon arrival, the concierge said that the double room we had...

We booked this hotel through a flights and hotel combo website, but everything was fine, which we were somewhat worried about. We arrived late, due to our flight, but there was someone on reception even then which was great (we discovered that at no matter what time there would be someone there). The hotel is slightly out of the main...
