 "Good location but rooms a little tired"
As others have mentioned, when we arrived we were walked around the corner to another building. It was presented as an upgrade to give us more room but didn't give a good impression as we walked out of a rather lovely looking lobby to a building up a side street with a tiny lift and two slightly tired and shabby rooms (although we have no idea what the rooms might have been like in the original building.)

Having two rooms was good - we were a party of one adult, one child and two teenagers. However the shabbiness went beyond the old bedding to a broken and rather dangerous bathroom window and broken plug on one of the sinks. The girls also reported that their bed was not very comfortable.

On the good side the location was great - very close to Termini station and lots to see within easy walking distance.
Breakfast was provided by the cafe across the road and was nice if a little limited in choice. We went back to the same bar on one of the evenings for drinks and felt very comfortable.
Also the showers were good and wifi connection in the rooms makes up for a lot.
In summary - a bit basic and shabby but clean with plenty of hot water and did us ok for the three nights we were there. Would I recommend - yes if you are not too fussy over decor etc but don't expect anything too fancy.

 "Good"
The B&B was at a good location, the rooms are small and very clean. We had a pleasant stay at the B&B. In the evening there was loud music at the pub but after a phone call they put out the music for us. That was very great.

 "Very helpful staff"
Pros: Very helpful staff. allowed us to pay at the end of our stay. free breakfast 24/7. the hotel was full, so we were driven to another location at no cost. roberto, the owner, offered us 30% off of our next stay. in all, a great hotel, great location, for your price.
Cons: The hotel was not actually at the matisse, but at another newer property. roberto, the owner, brought us to another property of his, which was very near the colosseum. the location was actually a little better. i am not sure which property was better, because we did not go in the first.

 "Good location"
Pros: Good location.
Cons: Quite confusing at first as it is not really hotel, but rather a set of apartments in rome. we have been greeted at the door at stated address of the hotel and then have been offered to move to a different place (nearby), we have agreed to see the apartments and liked it so we stayed, but it was a rather confusing situation as you do not know what to expect. another downside is that the hotel apparently does not accept credit cards but only payments in cash! when we pushed the owner for accepting our payment by card he got all offended, but agreed in the end. we have decided to pay in cash in the end as did not trust the owner enough to provide him with details of our card just in case. other than that perfect location, apartments look nice too.

 "Uniche note postitive sono: a) posizione b) vicinanza metro c)..."
Pros: Uniche note postitive sono:
a) posizione
b) vicinanza metro
c) disponiilità di parcheggi gratis o garage a pagamento
Cons: Leggendo la descrizione del b&b, valutando la posizione e sentendoci garantiti dalle "4 stelle" abbiamo prenotato questo b&b...gravissimo errore!

parte già tutto male quando per avvisare del nostro arrivo ci annunciano che verremo spostati in altra struttura...ma all'arrivo la mia prima domanda è perche' e l'operatore ci da la stanza a via nazionale...

posizione centrale davvero ma varcato il portone, salite le scale...e superato l'ingresso comincia l'incubo:
-sala colazione: una cucina decadente con i mobili che cadevano a pezzi e il soffitto pieno di muffa
-camera piccolissima con lavandino che perde, buchi alle pareti, illuminazione arrangiata, nioente shampoo o bagnoschiuma ma 2 dispenser attaccati uno nella doccia ( pieno ma con sapone diluito) e uno sul lavandino (vuoto)
- alla richiesta di pagare con carta ( cosa presente sui vari siti di prenotazione) mi vien negato dicendo che non era previsto
-fattura? no sono un b&b e mi rilascia una quietanza di pagamento su carta non intestata o timbrata;
- non richiede i documenti al check in...ma prentende i 2 euro di tassa di soggiorno (...andranno mai al cumune se non ha dichiarato la nostra permanenza???).
- aria condizionata: su mia richiesta mi viene detto che mi costava 5 euro in più: sulla copia di prenotazione l'aria condizionata era inclusa come la colazione "continentale"...su mia insistenza mi viene dato il telecomando senza supplemento
-bagno: lavandino che perde...spazi stretti...biancheria "vecchia".
-camera....crepe e buchi chiusi con la carta gommata...

finalmente: colazione: non ci sono tavolini e quindi o ti siedi sul divano e cerchi di arrivare al tavolino o fai all'in piedi! megli in piedi visto che la colazione continanetale self serice 24h prevede:
- formaggini del discount
-burro del discount
-succo di frutta bravo rauch solo gusto ace ( se nn ti paice ti attacchi)
-bollitore acqua per the lipton e nescafe
-latte ( come si riscalda è un mistero)
- cornetti ( quelli imbustati duri di 1 euro otto pezzi) a cioccolata o bianchi
-marmellate in barattolo e barattolo di nutella
- cerali....
ah dimentticavo 3 bottiglie di acqua levissima del rubinetto!!!

non mi sento di consigliare questo posto a nessuno...davvero esperienza orribile...

se le loro sono 4 stelle...io vivo nella reggia di caserta

 "Great location and clean room"
Pros: Great location and clean room. good value for money and breakfast provided.
Cons: Rather strange hotel set-up with no reception or staff on duty. it seemed more like a small apartment with ensuite bedrooms rented out. not really what we expected from a hotel.

 "Clean, basic accommodation in a safe, central location, ideal base for..."
Pros: Clean, basic accommodation in a safe, central location, ideal base for sightseeing on a budget. continental breakfast is included and is served in a nearby cafe/bar 0800 to 1200.
Cons: The matisse is an apartment with kitchen facilities on the fourth floor of a building in a quiet backstreet and not a hotel as expected. there was no air conditioning as stated on the site (open a window), or tea/coffee provided (there are plenty of cafe bars nearby). will recommend to family and friends.

 "Clean, good location, english speaking staff"
Pros: Clean, good location, english speaking staff.
Cons: I was surprised that there was not as hotel or just a rented appartment nearby. you receive breakfast in a cafe nearby. it is not bad, but just maybe for others that might be relevant information. also info said all rooms have air conditioner. breakfast could be more diverse.
