They worked very hard to make this hotel different. Let's begin with the oddities, some of which you'll like and others may be a little bit frustrating. For a start you'll find all the features in your room - air conditioning,. lighting, internet, TV etc - are operated through a play station-type controller. It all works fine and the air con is powerful and effective. The lighting is really different - you can programme it through a host of colours from a very racy red to cool blues and natural greens. You can also add scents to this experience.
The room - we had one up from the base room - was big enough but had a very large (and comfortable) bed leaving little space for anything else. The bathroom is very tasteful with a walk-in shower (controlled on the wall, conventionally!). The water temperature in the shower was good, although a bit cool in the wash basin. You can switch the lights off at night through a wall button and if you need a midnight call, a discreet little light on a sensor in the bathroom ensures you don't fill the room full of light. The bedroom ceiling was a large mirror in a gold background which changed colour with your controls. Floors are glass and wood. Storage sauce is quite limited but was okay for four nights. The room has a minibar but no tea or coffee making. Your screen for the 'play station' controls is a massive white space high up on the wall.
Breakfast is served in your room - there are no public rooms. It was a good continental selection with freshly squeezed orange juice, excellent coffee and a sensible choice.
The hotel is in a fantastic central location for everything a tourist or business person might need. The staff - available 24 hours - are exceptionally friendly and helpful.
All this is the good stuff, but there are a few downsides. One is that despite all the lighting you can't really get a decent white light for reading. And the vast bed means there is no space for chairs, which is an issue as there are no public rooms. The flashy electric socket throws blue light all round the room at night - not really a problem as we put something over it.
Probably the main issue is noise. With no carpets anywhere, this is quite a noisy hotel, with late comers' voices echoing along the corridors and into rooms. Also, those seeking entry from outside need to press a bell which can easily be heard in your rooms. During our first few days when the hotel was empty we had no issues. On the last night someone's loud TV and a regular parade of late comers made it difficult to get to sleep.
So, lots of good things to like about this hotel. But light sleepers beware!
However, it's fun and you won't forget it.

Room Tip: Only 14 rooms and they are all in the same area around reception.

This perfectly located hotel is a little oasis of calm right bang in the centre of Rome. Mood lighting, central to Tracento's style is an understatement, more like a technical- minded/gadget man's dream, perhaps for some a bit unnecessary/complicated. Playful, modern, clean, spacious rooms. Mirrored ceiling - funny. Daily breakfast in bed as standard...yes that does read breakfast in bed as standard. Discreet, friendly, personal and attentive service from Paul and Thomaso. Rose petals on our bed and tuck down limoncello were a lovely surprise and nod to our mini moon weekend. We will definitely be back..maybe our 1st wedding anniversary, hopefully before! Thank you Paul and Thomaso

I am really torn...I wanted to love everything about this hotel but it fell flat. Although the location is ideal for many, it is in a very busy part of the city, right on Via del Corso. Personally, I would have liked to have been tucked away in one of the quaint alleyways...but that's not the hotels fault. I should have done a little more research. The hotel itself is very 'interesting'. Be prepared to either take a very small elevator (not good if you're claustrophobic) or walk a few flights of stairs each time you come back to your room. All of the rooms are very close to the very small lobby - with two of the rooms actually being in the lobby! You can hear every phone call that is made - ALL NIGHT. When you are in the lobby itself you have to whisper as to not disturb anyone else. We also felt like we needed to whisper in our rooms as well! The Xbox system seemed like it would be pretty easy to figure out since we are fairly tech savvy - not so. We didn't even turn it on after the first night since we couldn't even figure out how to turn it off! I just wish that they had an instruction manual since it controlled everything in the room, including the temperature. Instead, they give you a quick tutorial and that's it. Now to the lights...THE LIGHTS! They seemed so simple but ours never really worked-or they would work when they wanted to - and for the record, we did know how to use them...they were just very inconsistent in our room and we were sick of asking for help every time we had a problem (which felt like it was pretty often). I just gave up, opened the curtains and hoped I looked presentable. With that being said, all of the people at the front desk were very nice and very helpful. The bed was absolutely comfortable and the shower was great too. Breakfast was nice and simple. I really did want to love you Hotel Trecento!

Room Tip: Try to get a room as far away from the lobby as possible!

The hotel is located in a great spot, the staff was friendly and welcoming, the facilities were clean, and I really enjoyed the complimentary breakfast in the room. That said, I did not find myself to be a very big fan of the lighting scheme and the technology that they have employed in the rooms to get the modern feel. While the idea behind the lighting is interesting, I struggled to find a way to light my room that didn't feel all wrong. Even the white light didn't feel quite right to me. The problem was even worse in the bathroom where there was no natural light to offset the colored lighting. I also didn't love the mirror on the ceiling above the bed. The combination of that with the lighting scheme gave the room a sort of sleazy sex vibe, which I don't think is at all what they were going for with the decor. Turning on lights, adjusting temperature, and calling the front desk at the hotel should all be self explanatory- when it takes a 10 minute tutorial to explain it to a new guest, it may be time to simplify.

Concept hotel that's quirky and amusing at the same time. Located on the second floor of a building on Via del Corso close to Piazza Venezia. The hotel is very interesting, I have not seen anything like it before with heavy dependance on technology and light effects both in room and bathroom. The room is managed by Xbox technology and the TV is projected on a wall. There is a large variety of channels both live and streaming.
Breakfast is served in room and is pretty sufficient.
Most important thing is friendliness and accommodation of the staff. Everyone was really sweet especially Paul.
