I stayed here for 2 nights during a 12-day European coach trip with Expat Explore, which started from London.
I believe that this hotel was chosen by the tour company based on its reasonable price without compromising on comfort, and its easy accessibility to the city centre by metro. It is situated in a rather safe neighbourhood, as we did not feel threatened while walking between the hotel and the metro station of Cornelia on several occasions.
The location of the hotel is rather far from the city centre, though. It is closer to the Vatican City, if you know Rome well. But all hotels in central Rome can be extremely expensive even though the standard is low. So, if you can compromise on the distance by paying a lower price, this is a good hotel to stay at, because the metro station is easily accessible (10-minutes walk) and there are some very nice restaurants/pizzerias around (you can read all about my separate reviews on them here on TA).
I was given a room on the ground floor, which has a door opening to a small garden. As I was staying alone, I was rather scared of this and decided to put my luggage against that door. The rooms is small in size, as are most hotel rooms in Rome of similar standard - I have been to Rome about 8 times, so I know.
Despite the size, my room was clean and comfortable, the shower has strong pressure and there was plenty of hot water. My (double) bed was comfortable but as one of the reviewers have mentioned, the walls are quite thin. If you were unfortunate enough like me, to have noisy guests next door, you will hear them rather clearly. Good thing they only stayed for 1 night!! I had a very peaceful second night after a really tiring day out and about.
I did not pay for this hotel as it is included in the tour price, but I did check on the rates and found them to be reasonable when the hotel offers “special deals” (around £55). If I can get this price for my next visit to Rome, I will stay here again, but if the price goes beyond £75, I will look for somewhere nearer the city to stay.
