10/10 Exceptional

We love this hotel. Great experience.
This hotel exceeded expectations. FIrst of all the allowed us to check in early. The room A/C was cold although it was 92 degrees in Room. The shower was very hot and had alot of pressure. The internet was fast. Breakfast was included. Location is two blocks from the Rome central station. So you could take the train from the airport to the hotel. The neighbor was OK. However you could walk to more tourist neighborhoods in 15 mins. In Rome be prepared to walk. The staff was very friendly too. They even offered 20% discount at their other hotel independence hotel rooftop bar and restaurant. It has a nice Rome sunset. In conclusion I am happy we chose this hotel because it is walking distance from alot of attractions and it is very classy.

Modern Clean Hotel in the Heart of Rome
PROS I had a wonderful stay at this hotel. I only stayed here one night after having to change my accommodation plans to a hotel (rather than continue to stay in the Rome hotel loft apartment that I booked via another site). The bathroom is very spacious. The room was very clean and modern. They have staff that will take your luggage up and down the few steps by the reception/elevators and up to your room. Check in was easy. They have a free breakfast buffet, but it is a quick turnaround as they have a lot of guests. The breakfast buffet is pretty decent. Staff will help you with ordering a taxi, not just to the airport but to many sights. It's about $50 to FCO airport. However, ask the hotel to order it at least 15 minutes or so earlier than you need the taxi, to avoid delays. There is a mini-market right next to the hotel. You can get City Sight Seeing bus and other bus company tours from the Piazza Barberini. It is not always clear where to get on the bus -which is why I included this information. If you need an address you can use Pepy's Wine Bar - Piazza Barberini 53, 00187 Rome Italy. CONS They need to improve their coffee machine. It does not seem to produce coffee (aside from expressos) easily and some struggled to get their coffee. I think the staff are friendly once they warm up to you, but they could make more of an effort to greet you with a genuine big smile, in an upbeat manner as soon as you walk in. Those details make a difference.

great little hotel
we only stayed one night due to a flight cancellation but the reception we received on arrival was so refreshingly welcoming from the check-in staff to the bellboys to the welcome cappuccino, smiling faces, explanation of what was around us, cab booking for the airport the following day etc, i could go on and on! the hotel itself is in a great location with lots of nearby walking distance restaurants and train station . don’t really understand the reviews that reference the area as seedy. we are city people and found it great. the room was clean and of good size, air conditioned and well supplied. room service was amazing. they were either there instantly or called every 5 minutes with updates. For the price, this was a little gem. we would definitely return!
