Absolutely terrible location, miles away in the middle of nowhere. Access to the hotel was by taking the metro line B all the way to the end to Rebibbia (about 15 mins from Roma Termini), THEN a local bus for another 15 minutes. With good timing a trip from the city centre was often about 40-45 minutes. The worst part is that the buses stop at about 11.30pm and after than you could only get a taxi - walking would be too far.
This is not a hotel for young travelers. Most of the other people in the hotel appeared to be part of big tour groups which came with their own private coach, which meant they weren't affected by the hotel's remote location, or they were here on business.
To make things worse, the service of this "4-star" hotel was shocking.
- On their website that a "shuttle bus service is at your disposal" - in actual fact there are only 2 shuttle services, one at 8.30am and one at 7.30pm to and from the hotel to Rebibbia station.
- Their free wifi worked for 2 out of our 4 days there, and when we asked them about it they just said that it was broken and they were "trying" to fix it (but it was never fixed)
- They don't have an iron in the hotel to lend out, only a "laundry service" but that wasn't open anyway. My friends had to run to a nearby laundromat to get their ironing done
All in all, I found the experience very underwhelming and infuriating at times. The staff were not particularly friendly or helpful. The only reason we ended up staying here is because our travel agent booked it for us in a rush at the last minute - if we had known about its location we would not have agreed to stay here.
