Liked: The property itself, typically Italian with shuttered windows; the beautiful marble stairs and big doors; the cleanliness of the room we were in and the bathroom. Also the helpful and very friendly staff. It was easy to access all the sites we wanted to visit; and convenient and felt safe for restaurants in the evening.

Disliked: Only one minor thing which happens in lots of places I have stayed that at certain times in the morning the water would stop due to the volume of people using the shower at peak times.

Liked: By far the friendliest staff I have ever encountered. Very accommodating and always cheerful! Everything was very clean and the WiFi had a strong, clear signal.

Disliked: The Place in Rome is actually divided into two buildings, across the street from each other, so depending on where you're staying, you may not have direct access to the reception or breakfast area.

Liked: Everything! The receptionist is helpful and cheerful. We had a three beds room and a four beds room all of us enjoy they stay very much in this interesting city! The room is as description and the location is few minutes walk from main station and 15-25 mins walks to most tourist attractions. The complementary breakfast is excellent which you can get a coffee, juice, croissant and a yogurt! Absolutely worth to pay more staying in this hotel if you are backpacker like us.

Disliked: Check in time is not 24 hour make sure you email them for information if you would like to check in early/ late.

Liked: The hostel is minutes away from Termini train station. The staff though make all the difference at this location. As nervous travellers, James at reception was very kind, helpful and welcoming. He made us feel at home upon arrival. During our 4 day stay, James and his staff were very helpful in providing recommendations and sharing tips and advice to save a few bucks and avoid tourist traps. I will recommend the Place in Rome to friends because of the staff. The room was as described - enough room for two. Very clean and wifi and breakfast are nice added touches. The room was right outside a morning market, which was a pleasant surprise to be next to. Location is about 15-20 min walk to most tourist attractions.

Disliked: Rooms could have used a bit more lighting.

The hotel is in a perfect location for walking anywhere in Rome and is also very close to the Termini train station and many bus stops. The room also had airconditioning, which was perfect to manage the summer heat. Couldn't recommend it enough!
