    Good

    The room was spacious and the balcony was nice.

    We did not like its location although we managed with bus and subway to get to the city center. Also, the room really needs a shower curtain. The bathroom was flooded after every shower and based on the condition of the flooring, we were not the only ones with this problem.

    Superb

    We initially had a problem with the bathroom light in the first room that we were booked in & the friendly ladies at reception gladly put us into a more spacious beautiful room.I really compliment the ladies that were there on the afternoon of the 13 May 2011. One was Miquel and not sure about the other.

    The first room - 7th floor right in the corner was very small and the fact that there was no kettle & cups in the rooms.

    Very good

    helpful staff

    location in Rome inconvenient for visiting the city; 10 min walk to next bus station, 5 min bus ride to the Metro, and then a 25min ride with the Metro. However, the problem really starts upon return from the city in the evening since the buses run only very infrequently. Half-an-hour or longer wait times at the end of the Metro line need to be accepted.

    Far away but good connection to metro,

    Not friendly staff at all!!!! Far away from city centre, very poor breakfast!! Very hard to find anything to eat.Restaurant on 7th floor - buffet dinner 25 euro, very poor. I will not recommend this hotel to anybody else. I have booked double room, and got 2 single beds.They told me,that hotel is full and they havent any double rooms available.HORRIBLE Place!!!

    Good

    Rooms were nice, although small. Staff were friendly. Wide selection of items for breakfast.

    Restaurant buffet (25 euros) was a bit disappointing for a 4 star hotel - both in variety and quality of dishes presented. Bathroom could have done with a refurbishment too. Quite far out of the city(bus to train, and then subway required) but not too far from EUR business area

    Superb

    Very good breakfast. Comfortable room. Internet is available on the ground floor.

    Location and location - too far from the city center, and too far from the nearest metro station. I had to take a taxi to get back to the hotel in the evening. Otherwise - the hotel is really nice!

    Localisation - quite good. 5 minutes by car to the Laurentina Metro Station (parking = € 1,5 for 12 hours) Free underground parking

    Breakfast - awful. Instant coffee in Italy is a big missunderstanding! The room was cleaned every day but very innacurate. Hair on the sheets! Service - below any comment. Generally they don't care about guests. 4 stars? In their dreams. 2 maximum

    Classical business hotel, clean and efficient

    It is located in the middle of nowhere, not many services nearby.

    Good

    Quiet hotel. You can see the countryside. If you have the time to spend 30-40 minutes in local transport, the price is good.

    The price of beer at the bar - 6 euros for a bottle - is outrageous.

    Superb

    Spacious comfortable room. Restaurant with panoramic 7th floor views. Hotel is set in quiet park location. Convenient for Rome’s equivalent to the M25. Don’t be alarmed at seeing the hotel car park flooded with police vans. Police reinforcements from outside Rome often stay in the hotel.

    Fabulous

    Ampio spazioso ben organizzato, personale disponibile.

    Difficoltoso da trovare anche per un navigatore evoluto, poca segnaletica e poi i tassisti ci hanno informato che la zona non ha nulla a vedere con la Garbatella.

    Very good

    La struttura è relativamente recente e costruita in modo razionale. Le camere sono accoglienti e pulite. è ubicato in un quartiere residenziale molto ordinato e pulito confinante con una grande zona verde, una posizione molto rilassante e tranquilla.

    Il personale sembra costituito in gran parte da giovani praticanti piuttosto incompetenti, che cambiano spessissimo. La posizione, che può essere piacevole se si deve frequentare uno degli uffici della zona oppure si cerca tranquillità e si è provvisti di un mezzo di trasporto, è isolata e non è raggiungibile da mezzi pubblici. Infatti la struttura è soprattutto occupata da grandi comitive che viaggiano in pullman. Una passeggiata serale mostra un quartiere deserto con pochissime possibilità per cenare. Al momento (luglio 2012) sono ancora in corso lavori che limitano enormemente il parcheggio interno.
