Modern hotel with good a/c and well located
Room was nice and quiet - unfortunately had an odor of past smokers - I requested non smoking room but maybe there were none remaining. One of the true godsends in a summer hotel stay in Rome is central a/c that doesn’t shut off when the room key is removed and which actually cools to a temperature fit for sleeping. For this, I overlooked that the shower gel was empty on arrival and remained empty over the course of my 3 night stay. One disappointment - the coffee in Italy is typically so delicious that it is very noticeable and disappointing when the coffee machine in the breakfast room dispenses freeze dried Nescafé as the base for whatever coffee has been requested. The bar on the roof is nice and has a great view. Food was good and reasonably priced.

Lovely 4 night stay for a couple
We had a lovely stay here! The reception was helpful and accommodating at all times. The bus stop across the road can take you to many of the major attractions in a few minutes. It was also nice and quite to get a good night's rest. It was very hot in Rome during our 4 night stay, so to get back to a clean and air-conditioned room was so good. The breakfast was amazing, especially the coffee! We couldn't stop talking about it and it kept us going for the rest of the day. This is definitely a lovely boutique hotel and we would certainly come back again.

Nice convenient location to the train station. The food in the restaurant was good for lunch. Family room set up was suitable for our family. Elevators are small and constantly in use.

All the rooms have bed bugs BEWARE! ... The 2 nights I stayed here ruined the rest of my trip since my entire left leg was dotted all the way to my privates with bed-bug bites that itch terribly
