0.06km from University of Washington Rome CenterThe good Location is great walking distance to most things in Rome. Plenty of restaurants around, bars and shops around. We felt very safe and welcome. Cristina and Elena are truly wonderful, always a call/WhatsApp away and always with a smile. They really make this place special. The room (101) was spacious, the windows were very efficient at blocking outside noise. The only day we had an issue was on Saturday night! When we arrived we were really worried about the noise but it is really not a big issue. The room feels welcoming and it has some clever lighting, a kettle and a nesspreso, a handy mini fridge and some parabens-free toiletries. The room needs a coat of fresh paint and some other maintenance work, but overall is quite cool. Note for the girls: the room has a hair dryer and a straightener! Only in Italy right ?! The not so great: The room has a slight smell of drainage/mould every time you come back to the room ... the good news is that you stop noticing it after a couple of minutes. In room 101 there is a noise of water running that is difficult to explain. I believe it happens when the room upstairs uses the water... you hear the water pipes and splashes like if you were in a aquarium! I never experienced anything like that. On the positive note it does not last long. The insulation in between rooms is poor. We were lucky we did not have newlyweds next door *** correction on our last night we did hear “fireworks”... hilarious and uncomfortable at the same time *** I like the idea of breakfast in the room ... but it is a very simple breakfast. Coffee, orange juice flavored drink, small croissant, French toast, jam, butter, Nutella, and yoghurt. If you want more coffee you can ask for it, we found ourselves asking for more coffee almost every morning. The excellent... the location! Thinking about it, it is better than good ;) Verdict: next time in Rome I will explore new options but I will also consider staying again at the JB Relais. The price was quite competitive ;) that is always a good thing!
