Another sister of the 2 star Hotel Philia and 3 sta Hotel Adventure in the same area of Via Palestra near Termini Station, the 2 star Hotel Ventura is one of the city’s newer and more modern budget hotels.

There are however, one or two characters a like Manuel in this budget hotel/hostel near Termini!
