Rome trip
We quite liked this hotel. Pluses were it was quiet apart from when you opened the window as there was a noisy generator. Breakfast was substantial with lovely coffee and pastries also fruit and yogurt. However we had to go down 5 flights in the lift and a set of stairs. We didn't like the bath in the bedroom with a hand held shower. The bed was comfortable but only one plastic chair. Area was a bit shady at night but handy for transport to airport

Bad stay! There's nothing good about this hotel except for its location.

Very bad Stay!!!
Don't be misled by their photos!! The photo of the hotel looks very nice. But there are another B&B and a 2 star hotel INSIDE of the hotel building. We shared the elevator and the common areas with the guests from the B&B and the 2 star hotel. Our room was just next door to the B&B and the 2 star hotel. I really don't see any difference of staying in the B&B or the 2 star hotel as opposed to Hotel California as they're in the same building and share the common areas. But you pay a lot more for Hotel California as they're classified as a 3 star hotel. Our room was bad and outdated. The fridge was not plugged. There were no telephone and "flat screen TV". I think they're more like a B&B than a 3 star hotel, but they charge you the 3 star hotel price. Very bad experience and definitely WON'T stay here again!!

Very noisy during the midnight, we could not sleep well because of the noise of the running water of the showers from the upper rooms.

Hotel clean and tidy. Breakfast ok but typically continental. Beds very hard so some might not like them. Position is ideal for termini train station but if you’re walking then everything to see is in one direction . St. Peter’s is one hours walk but hop on hop off bus is good
