The host that meet us tried to hustle us for full payment at regular price 370 Euros + 36 Euros per night in cash. She insisted on 36 Euros city tax that had to be paid in cash, or I was asked to leave. When mentioning Expedia, she didn't want to hear it. She just snubbed it and ignored my pre-paid rate. Claimed to send me a receipt by email for the 36 Euros in cash I paid. Never Received It! Not Surprising. Stay Away! This place is a Scam!

The bathroom is not very clean and the room condition is pretty worn out. Shower head is almost broken. Different from the picture. Convenient location but please expect noisy outside. Friendly staff at check in but no breakfast as mentioned in the site.

centric place
The place is near to the Vatican, and near to stores and restaurants, I do not have a phone, and the only communication with the personnel was with emails, ( they do not has front desk and the cleaning personnel are there only in the mornings; we stayed for 4 nights and they do not left toilet paper and soap for us... we need to buy them.

Good budget accomodations
No staff usually on site so it can be a challenge checking in, but we didn't have any problems (other people we ran into did, however). The area is awesome, close to metro, bus and tram and lots of restaurants and shops in the area. Walking distance to the Vatican. The rooms are clean, but definitely could use a little TLC as they require paint and a little maintenance. But the beds were comfortable and the staff were very willing to help out. Good budget accommodations - not a hotel, more like a flat or apartment. Wifi worked well.

Римские каникулы
Римские каникулы Проживние было комфортным и обсуживание ненавязчивым. Номер отеля чистый, просторный. Нас никто не встретил по указанному на сайте адресу. Мы кое как нашли номер телефона. Нам написали что с нашей бронью проблема и апартаменты заняты. Правда на улице не оставили. Направили по другому адресу неподалёку. Мы как то нашли и прождали часик. В общем всё обошлось. Отель понравился.

Poor 2.0
vantaggi: zona centrale silenziosa e comoda per i mezzi Svantaggi: personale non risponde ai messaggi, non aprono la porta all'arrivo, non comunicano il wifi se richiesto, non ci hanno restituito il resto... La camera non ha campo e telefono non funziona, c'era la TV ma non il telicomando. Materasso mollo.

Om je veel moeite te besparen boek je dit hotel best NIET! Het hotel ligt vlak naast een luide weg en het is moeilijk te vinden. De naam van het hotel vind je nergens. Je kan maar bepaalde uren inchecken. Als je buiten deze uren zou inchecken moet je nog eens een toeslag betalen. Je hebt ook de kans dat ze je zelf niet meer willen inchecken als je buiten deze uren aanwezig bent. Wij hebben laten weten dat we later toekwamen zodat ze aanwezig zouden zijn. Na een uur in de regen te wachten rond 23u voor het hotel lieten ze ons weten dat we geen slaaplaats hadden voor die nacht omdat ze ons niet meer wilden inchecken. Dit hebben ze zeer onresctvol laten weten en hielpen ons hierna totaal niet meer verder. Slechtste hotel waar ik ooit mee te maken gekregen hebben en zeer onvriendelijke mensen.

Sólo merece la pena por su ubicacion
Si quieres solo buena ubicación, reserva en este hotel. La habitación está bien pero no muy limpia, la ducha pequeña con apenas agua y no caliente. Cuando llegamos, no estaba preparada la habitación, tuvimos que darnos un largo paseo. Tuvimos dos incidencias y fue complicadísimo contactar con alguien, solo había comunicación mediante mensaje y no contestaba nadie. Estuvimos horas sin tener contestación de ningún responsable. No lo recomiendo
