                            6.6

                            Free wifi

                            The hotel is old. Housemaids were very talkitive and noisy.

                          • Group of friends
                            6.6

                            Nice rooms with comfortable bed.

                            Hotel reception staff is unfriendly and incompetent. Lady at the reception told me that it is not possible to register Eurobonus points for my stay if I am not a member of BestWestern Rewards, which is not true but I could not do anything about it!

                          • Family with children
                            8.2

                            Location was excellent, close to all public transport and ample number of restaurants close by. Helpful staff and overall a good experience.

                            Breakfast could have more varieties with changes everyday. Staying for more than 4 days with same breakfast items makes it boring. Expensive room rent for the service, though it was a last minute booking. Cannot complain on it. Anywhere close to Euro 110-120 (inclusive of breakfast) is a good deal for this hotel.

                            8.8

                            Well situated, very closed to Termini railway and Metro station. Quiet.

                            Good Location.Near the main train station.

                            Staff was very rude and unfriendly. The service which I got from the front desk was the worst one in my life.

                            The staff were rude, surly, unfriendly and rather stupid. The refusal to supply any complimentary water in the gym is absurd as is the requirement that you must keep coming to the reception desk to get your ridiculous internet access code they keep changing as they refuse to give it to you over the phone.

                            Good location, very near Roma Termini train station

                            The hotel staff (especially at reception) should be more friendly.

                            Very good hotel, it's not far from Termini Station and all sights. It needs about 40 minutes to go on foot to Vatican. The breakfast was delicious and various. The staff on reception was polite and attentive.

                            10.0

                            Excellent location - 5 min from Termini station and 15 mins walking distance to the Colosseum. Rooms are clean, big bathroom, nice interior.

                            We spent 4 nights there. Absolutely comfortable and clean rooms with awesome big bed and stylish design. Location is good as well - Termini subway station in 5 minutes by walk. Breakfast was really great. I strongly recommend this hotel.

                            Porter, cleaning staff and the staff at the dining hall were all very nice. Room was clean.

                            The staff at reception were so impolite and rude and ''ordered'' me to show my passport without telling me what are they going to do with my data. Hotel room didnt look like the photos shown on Booked.net. The hotel was aged and the carpet in the dining hall was worn out.

                          • Couple

                            It was close to the Metro and was quiet

                            Staff were not the most helpful
