    My plane was delayed and I arrived at 0330 in the morning. I had emailed before travelling to ask if they were happy for me to arrive after midnight. They said that was fine. I rang from the airport to say I was delayed and would not get in before 0300. They said that was fine too. When I arrived eventually I got a very warm, friendly and helpful welcome. I received the same treatment the following morning when checking out. I was very impressed by the friendliness and professionalism of the staff at a time of the morning when most people are not even functioning...

    Historic site that needs updating.”

    This is a nice basic hotel in a renovated monetary. My original room was very shabby but after complaining I was moved the next day. The majority of staff give the impression that they are unhappy working there. The exception was Monica who was lovely and so helpful. The continental breakfast is good and now on the terrace a nice view.

    Un sejur fara pretentii”

    Old hotel, with many defective features, windows that do not open and are glued with scotch so as not to enter the wind, for a stay of 5 nights I received 2 small pieces of soap and 5 shampoos- 7ml, no shower gel, a bath and so on. . Good luck I had toilet paper. A hotel with indolent staff, who did not want to read on our voucher that we had all taxes included, forcing us to pay 42 euros city taxes, although neither receipt could give us, because they could not pay in system. I suspect that the figure was already paid and could not be collected, we had to leave the money and we went to the airport because we lost the plane. After making a complaint to Agoda, we were announced that we will receive the money in the account. Breakfast pretty poor.

    No Internet connection/ uncomfortable beds”

    The bed was horrible, I could feel the mattress spring on my back. I asked to change rooms, they changed the mattress which was also not so comfortable. While changing the mattress, I noticed a huge crack on the bad. They had to change the bed claiming there was no room available. I paid for a room with wifi but stayed 3 days without internet connection. Complained many times but the staff was careless and did not help. They told me that if I wanted to use the internet I had to go to the terrace or to the reception where according to them the internet coverage was good. I asked to change the room, they refused to. Saying there’s no room available. Breakfast was terrible, bread hard as rock. It looks like it was leftovers from some bakery, very few options available, all very tasteless . I definitely do NOT recommend this place.

    Horrible experience”

    The roof of the hotel is totally leaky, after a stronger rainfall water comes into the rooms. The rooms are very cold, the heater (air conditioning) didn't work in room 101 and 203. I guess in the rest the same. The beds are totally worned and used. Honestly I never slept in such bad beds. The elevator was also defect, if you read the reviews here, the elevator is often defect. Have fun to carry your baggage 4 levels down. I wrote an emal with these issues to the hotel. Never get a feedback.

    Visiting Rome”

    Friendly atmosphere of monasterial hotel. The building was inviting and had monasterial charm. It was wonderful to explore and imagine the life of its previous residents. The roof top allowed escape from being inside and gave a great view of the city of Rome, in particular at night after a day out. Service from the front desk was very helpful. We had a wondeful room with a circular window that overlooked the full length of the main street. Rooms were cleaned and tidied daily.
    Needed to catch metro to reach city centre. Once the routine was achieved this was no major dramma as trains ran frequently. Breakfast food could be improved by including vegetables such as tomatoes, cucumbers to go with cold meats supplied.

    Staff were very friendly and gave the time to answer any questions that we asked in relation to the history of the building and queries of where to meet our tour guides. On our first day we were told where to buy our metro ticket (at the newsagent across the road) which was not the norm for us.
