Check in, you must call the owner of the hotel prior to arrival. The owner is not usually at the hotel. If you don't have access to a telephone, then this is a problem. Lucky, my taxi driver called the owner and spoke with her in Italian. I waited 30 minutes for the owner to show up and give me the keys. There are so many keys in order to access this hotel. If you get locked out, then you are out of luck because the owner is never there. She requested cash instead of charging my credit card for the room. This was another issue because I expected to pay by card. The policy is that this is a non smoking hotel, but this is not true. The room smelled like smoke, so I requested another room, which also smelled of smoke. The owner spoke very fast and her English skills were very limited. Cosmos looks and feels like a hostel. I was only allowed one towel per day. If you requested another, then there is an extra charge. I didn't want housekeeping, but they insisted on cleaning my room. I think it was to conserve the lights and check up on you. Cons: Cosmos is located in a poor area, which is why there are so many locks on the door. As a single female, I did walk back to the hotel very late, so it is possible. Just use streets smarts. The hotel looks worse than the pictures. The rooms are very outdated and dusty. I didn't shower during my 5 night stay, like in a rundown hostel. Pros:Its within a 10 minute walk to the coliseum. I would not recommend Cosmos to anyone.

宇宙酒店 - 罗马
卓越5.0 / 5
Having previously read some poor reviews I had doubts about staying at Cosmos, which were quickly allayed. To start with, the location is very convenient - just a couple of minutes' walk from either Vittorio Emmanuele or the Manzoni Metro stations, as well as being just a ten-fifteen minute walk from the Colosseum. There is a large supermarket about a five minute walk away. The room itself was clean and very large/nicely decorated considering the amount we were paying! We'd booked a room with a shared bathroom, but in fact our room had its own en-suite with shower (I suppose we were given a free upgrade). The lady who greeted us was friendly and very helpful. She arrived on time to check us in (other B&Bs hadn't been so punctual), and gave us a map of Rome along with plenty of information about the local area and places to visit. We would happily stay there again.
