The hotel made a very good impression. Cleanliness is at the top, everything was very orderly and organized. The hotel has about 35 rooms. The rooms are very small (about 2.5 mx 3.5m + bathroom. If you need more space, is in this hotel wrongly waived. We had booked with breakfast (more was not possible in this hotel). The average age of the guests was at about 45 years, partly pensioners, some young families with children, linguistically mixed (french, english, german, Poland.).

    The room is extremely small (2.5mx3. 5m + bathroom). The bed (circa 1.4mx2m) is succinct at a wall, in addition, a chair, a suitcase, a small built-in cabinet with refrigerator and safe (free of charge) available. The bathroom has toilet, shower, wash basin, bidet and a hair dryer. Towels were available in plentiful numbers, also got changed. The room had no balcony or terrace, however, an air conditioning. Room and bathroom were cleaned very thoroughly. Some utensils, which we with the departure had forgotten, were at the reception, where we can then pick-up could. We knew the suit-cases up to the departure in the afternoon in the hotel. If the rooms were bigger it would have been, i would have a point more.

  • Lage und Umgebung
    6.0

    The location of the hotel is ideal and unique to be described. It is located in the 3. floor of a 5 - storey house (elevator available), the several offices houses. The peter place (Piazza di San Pietro) is 10m away from the hotel. Most bus lines of rome are at the peter place (depending on bus 200-600m away). The peter place has its own metro station, about 800m away. Shops (mainly souvenir shops), cafes, bars, ice cream shops and smaller restaurants are in direct environment to saint peter's square available. From the airport (no matter, whether ciampino or fiumichino ) run all 30-60 minutes several and bus in the city center of rome, mainly to the central station Termini. From there out one comes best with buslinie 40 or 64 to the peter place. Also at the peter place there are several hop on hop off bus (110 open, green linetours, city sightseeing, Rome open route...), prices between 15 and 25 Euro /day.

    In the hotel there was a restaurant, in which only breakfast was served. In the evening you could on the terrace some smaller things orders (nothing to get full food), but quite expensive, as well as the drinks. The breakfast was qualitatively and quantitatively ok, but not thrilling, evenly typically italian. The breakfast consists of a few meats and cheeses, butter, margarine, scrambled eggs, boiled eggs, various jams, honey, Nutella, yogurt, fruit salad, cereals, coffee, tea, milk, various juices, water, fruit, bread and rolls.

    The entire staff is very friendly, the front desk is very good english and german (partly in Germany grown up). The maids and the service is rather bad english, no german, but this was no problem. The breakfast there was not too much to communicate. The room cleaning was very thorough, there's nothing to complain about. There was no reason to complain at.

Location: to the Peter place there is 50 steps. In 15 minutes you can reach on foot the center with great shopping Streets. Engelsburg in 10 minutes on foot away. Who go with the bus would like to, the bus stops are directly at the Peter place. All other objectives are here by bus reachable. Tours with audioguide and hop-off so often and so long you want. Buses go in 30 to 60 minutes tact. ( tact are partly with 15 minutes, but we never experienced-) ) hotel: very clean rooms, daily change of towels. Friendly, helpful staff and ...
