Positive Reviews

Satisfying service

The boutique design of the hotel ensures that guests will get treated like royalty instead of a number. Here, you can count on personal service and dedicated staff who are delighted to have you stay.

Do you have five minutes?

Just a five-minute walk will take you to some of the most notable landmarks in Rome, including cultural attractions, museums, and top tours. There are also restaurants and pubs surrounding the property.

A good breakfast

The free breakfast provided here is a real bonus. The buffet is kept refilled, the food is tasty and the menu is varied from day to day.

Negative Reviews

Size matters

The size of the rooms and baths are quite small. While the family rooms provide adequate space, the other rooms are cramped. This minimalist design results in a lack of necessary furniture, especially furniture needed for storage.

No luxury in the bedding

The ambiance and decor suggests that the beds are top of the line in luxury, but this just isn't the case. The beds are hard and uncomfortable. Some have been well used and the lack of adequate support in the right places can be felt all over the next day.

Location matters

Some of the floors and rooms have quirks you'll have to deal with. On the first floor, there is no private patio entrance and the windows look onto busy areas. The sixth floor is loud from the heating and air machinery. The rooms in between all suffer from some street noise issues.
