                    It was very casual and easy going. Staff was helpful and friendly.

                    Room appeared to be larger on website than in person.

                    Lovely room, very friendly staff. Breakfast was very good.Good location for Vatican City. Close to Metro stop. I would stay here again.

                    Vocal speaker in our room didn't work so when we listened to cds we could only hear instrumentals and not vocals, very disappointing as the main selling point is the music theme. Room was right beside lift,so extremely noisy.

                    Firstly, wonderful service. We were pickpocketed on our way to the hotel and the staff were very helpful in assisting us with contactinng credit card companies etc. The room was very clean, modern and comfortable. The breakfast was amazing. Truly great value for money at this hotel oh and we were concerned that the music theme of the hotel would be a bit wierd, but that was not the case at all, it was actually very subtle. Will definitely recommend this place to friends.

                    When using the shower in room 901 water water leaked all across the bathroom floor but this was only a minor issue.

                    Clean modern hotel, lovely decoration and the staff very helpful. Nice large warm bedroom and loved the boss sound system and glitter ball in the bathroom.

                    Bed mattress far to hard not comforable at all. Breakfast okay some days very little left of meats, cheese etc and the Coffee and Tea terrible taste. Would have liked to be able to get a Hot drink as we came in winter months a tray/kettle in the room would have been nice.

                    The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful!

                    The bathtub is pretty odd, water went to the floor when we were showering. The light in the bathroom ia extremely bright and it makes us very uncomfortable.

                    Nice concept-design trying to differentiate hotel, friendly staff.

                    Not very close to center but 10 minutes walking from a metro station. Not a real problem for us.

                    The hotel was very clean and the idea of a 'music' hotel was fun. The staff were lovely and very helpful

                    The rooms were extremely noisy. This wasn't due to the noise outside but the noise inside with kids waking up at seven in the morning on a Sunday for example. The location isn't ideal.

                    After a long day of walking around Rome the 10 minute walk from the metro seemed longer, although the bus stop close to the hotel can reduce this.

                    It was clean, particularly in the toilet. A top hi-fi was put into the room. Sky Sports channls allowed me to catch up with World Cup Football & news (in English, of course). The surrounding was present, and I was spoilt for choice with good restaurants. The hotel owner was keen o Jazz and even throw a mini-Jazz concert on Satuday night. Most staff spoke good English and were very helpful.

                    Service at Breakfast seemed a little inadequate, as only one lady served breakfast, while doing the washing up at the same time. On my first morning there, I had to wait several minute to get a bowl for my cereal and coffee.

                    We very much enjoyed our stay at the hotel and the breakfast was fantastic. The disco ball in the bathroom and the jetted tub were very fun.

                    24 hour service at front desk even though a small hotel - staff courteous and tried to help in every way. Good breakfast. Innovative design of hotel and rooms. Let us store luggage on day of check out. Quiet and comfortable sleeping.

                    Not in the centre of the city, but was still walking distance to everything.
