I had wanted a hotel near the [poi=5395]Termini Railway Station [/poi](Rome’s main transportation hub) and I found this small (it only has one floor) but very recommendable hotel. It’s completely renovated, modern, young, and friendly. The reception has tea and cookies and the like. They gave us some helpful information about the city like metro and bus lines. The price was great.
For our trip to Rome we found this hotel, it seemed perfect for what we wanted; a cheap hotel near the Termini station, with breakfast included and an en-suite. Arriving at the hotel we were greeted by a nice guy who showed us to the room, where we left our belongings and went to eat. The next morning we wanted to leave early and at 07:30 we tried to make ourselves coffee from the machine they have in the hallway (Nespresso type), but the guy who was there that morning got annoyed and said they served from 08:00 h.
We agreed to wait a while, but I had never tasted such a bad latte in my life, even from the University coffee machine. On the second day they wanted to charge us in cash a 10 € fee for the council (I'm still waiting for the receipt). Over the following days, adding to the problems they brought us breakfast between 08:30 and 08:45am, but we didn´t want to waste time sipping a crappy latte and eating a croissant warmed in the microwave. This is what happened in a so-called hotel and we have stayed in some hell holes, but we have never been treated so poorly.
This was the best place we stayed during our 2-month holiday across Europe.The rooms are just great, parquet floors everywhere and the ceilings, oh my God...you just can't get any better than this for the price you pay.
- The map with all the recommendation they give you at check in, trust the restaurants!
- The silence: we slept like babies all four nights.
- Teas and coffee machines in your room, impossible to find in Italy.
- Location!! walking distance to everywhere
- Staff, very cute, professional and discrete.
We loved Blue Hostel!
