Well at least it was clean! This is the only good thing I can say about it. The room was ok, the bathroom small and the shower barely big enough to fit an average sized person in. Service was non-existent - after 3 requests I actually went downstairs and asked directly for what I wanted. You are given the choice of 5 different pillows. 2 phonecalls later and no pillows. Why offer?
The hotel is out in the middle of nowhere - the only place to eat is a Maccas and some other service station take-away.
The hotel claims its a 22euro taxi fare from town - one taxi driver wanted to charge us 70 euros. Eventually we got there for 40 euros. If you want a great hotel in Rome stay at the Universo!

The hotel is in a terrible location - not close to the airport (although it is advertised that way), and definitely not close to the downtown (30 euros by taxi). Also, taxis don't want to go there because they cannot pick up other people from that area. It is in a very poor, industrial area, and taking the bus to downtown Rome takes an hour!!!

They have a shuttle that goes downtown and one to the airport but it is more of a joke! They have only 3 departures a day from the hotel to the airport and they go into the city every 2 hours. Shuttle stops working at 7PM. Very inconvenient!!! Don't stay there. Rooms smelled like cigarette smoke and you have to pay for internet!

Hotel is cheap and the concierge was friendly and helpful! Ok, now that we're done with the hotel's plus points...let's move on to its downside. No matter what anyone tells you, this hotel is NOT within walking distance of the subway station, nor is it close to Roma Termini train station. The hotel is also a long distance away from the Colosseum, Vatican, Piazza Navona, Trevi Foutain, Pantheon and every other tourist destination you can think of. The hotel does offer a "tram" service to and from the center of town to make it more convenient to get to tourist sites, however, the tram only has certain timings and may not always be convenient. The hotel room itself was also a bit small.

Me and my family stayed at this hotel in july 2004.this hotel is a safe bet, as another reviewer said. but there are no restaurants within walking distance of the hotel, leaving you with either the hotel restaurant or the mcdonalds next door. as we didnt come with any type of tour could take the helpful shuttle bus to the centre but as the last time the bus returns to the hotel is 7.50, not good if you want to eat out. as we'd never been to rome before this hotel was ok but staying in the centre would be more worth your while, this hotel is close to nothing. the staff are polite, the swimming pool is good, the shuttle service is helpful but stay closer to the centre.
