Controlling and STRANGE

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights and were surprised at the very controlling nature of the staff. Before I explain what I mean, let me first say that the room which was on the first floor in the garden area, was fairly clean but had a strange odor that was a bit unsettling. Anyway, when we got there they gave us our key and there was a guy that escorted us to our room. This "guy" was like the do-it-all minion (nice, but a little too up in our business all the time). Upon checking in, we immediatley wanted to go sightseeing. As we were walking out of the front door, they halted us and said, "Excuse me, we need to hold onto your key... it is safer that way". We kind of looked at the desk guy in disbelief... and as my husband reluctantly handed over our hotel key; I became reminded of some 1940's movie... where the unsuspecting Americans didn't realize the owners of the hotel were fascist. Anyway, when we came back we had to ask them for our key and luckily, they gave it to us no problem. My husband saw a short cut through the bar area that seemed a little quicker path to our room and as we were headed to the door they yelled at us and told us we had to go around and that we were not to use that door. Strange. The next morning proved stranger. We went to breakfast and since my husband and I smoke we wanted to eat our breakfast outside in the very lovely garden. Nope! No can do; apparently, the only way you can eat outside is if you pay for your food and order it from outside. We were reprimanded once again, but for this time... trying to take our food outside. I was starting to feel like a child at this point. Needless to say, we were very anxious to go sightseeing. Yes, we had to drop off our key each time. Anyway, when we came back to the room the maid had been there and I was shocked. The room was clean, but she or he had taken some of my things and Put Them In Back in My Suitcase!!! Overall, if you don't mind feeling like a child and having your things rifled through... than please feel free to stay at the Astoria Garden.
Such a great time

My husband and I stayed for 5 days at the Astoria Garden In Rome and indeed, we had such a great time in such hotel due the following reasons: location: just some blocks from main station. Also very important it was the warm and pleasant treatment the administration of the hotel gave to us. We really felt as if we were at home. The Astoria Garden in Rome makes you feel good and easy. Certainly, if we go to Rome again, we will stay at the Astoria Garden.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Astoria Garden Hotel

Excellent hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
Stayed here for a few nights in early march 2005. Couldn't fault it except the breakfast room was a bit small. But other than that great value, especially if you book through the hotel's own website:

Excellent value

from A TripAdvisor Member
We had an excellent stay at this hotel, very clean, tidy, very freindly staff.The rooms were as good as the hotel photos, The only problem is that the restaurant is too small.But I would reccomend this hotel to others.
It is ideally situated close to the bus and train station, which made our journeys a lot easier.

A real 3 stars in the center of Rome for a low price

from Sanje
A great trip with this plaisant hotel in the center of Rome, near all the transports and the places to visit. The staff are very helpfull and the bedroom was plaisant.
I advise to book this hotel online at octopustravel : the cost for the week-end during the low season (2 nights) including the break-fast is 130 euros for 2 people !
You can't find a best money for value in the center of Rome.

Nice hotel, Great Staff

from deb248
We stayed at the Astoria Garden for 4 nights in January 2005. The hotel is very nice and the staff extremely helpful. We had a large room on the first floor, facing the street. There was some street noise, but not too bad. Our traveling companions had a much smaller room, so you may want to reqeust a large room when you reserve. The showers were wonderful-strong water pressure and nice and hot. And the towels were huge bath sheets- wonderful after my last visit to Italy in 2003 where most hotels had little waffle-like towels. The only negative for this hotel is it's location. It wasn't a dangerous area- even when walking home from returning our rental car at 2am near Termini Station we felt safe. It's just a bit away from the tourist areas, so we found ourselves staying out until after dinner, and it would have been nice to come back in the early evening to freshen up before finding dinner.

Perfect Thanksgiving vacation

from abcarp
My daughter and I just returned from a four day Thanksgiving vacation to Rome. We stayed at the Astoria Garden Hotel, having made our selection based on the reviews at this site. Please be assured that the hotel is in an excellent location, especially if you want to be near the train station for the convenience of taking the train to and from the airport and for utilizing the easy public transport (metro and bus) in Rome. We felt completely safe walking in the neighborhood both day and night. The staff at the front desk were exceptionally cordial and very helpful. The rooms are on the (typical) small side but they are clean and well maintained. There was no street noise. Breakfast is served downstairs and consists of bread, cheese and ham as well as juice, yogurt and cereals. Make sure to ask for a capucino or espresso in the morning as the coffee in the machine is the watered down American version.
We booked this hotel through an Expedia package and it was just perfect for our needs.

Had a very pleasant stay

My wife and I, along with another couple, stayed here for 3 nights in November 2004. I agree with some other people that the area is nothing to write home about, but we certainly didn't feel threatened at all whilst walking nearby - night or day. The room(s) that we had were a bit smaller than the ones some other contributors obviously had (the best rooms are probably the ones overlooking the garden), but ours were very clean, as was the bathroom (which is very important I reckon). It was also not too far to walk to the sights of Rome (but we do like walking). One warning however would be to careful of the CRAZY Italian drivers - our taxi from the airport will live with us all forever (how we survived I'll never know), and don't bother waiting at pedestrian crossings, coz they aint gonna stop for you - just do as the locals do - step onto crossing, fix your gaze into the oncoming drivers face and go for it (some of them actually stop !). Have a nice stay.

Astoria Garden

from A TripAdvisor Member
Just home from a few days spent staying at the Astoria Gardens with my Mum and my 2 children. The hotel is fantastic, the staff friendly and helpful, particularly with the children, the room was clean and spacious (great shower) with a balcony overlooking the courtyard. The breakfast was good and satisfied even the fussiest member of the party. Only a few minutes walk from Termini and just round the corner from another bus stance. There's a lovely restaurant nearby I think it's called Florians, also a supermarket and snack bars.

We didn't feel threatened at all when we were walking around in the evening, it doesn't matter where in the world you are, you'll still come across drunks and down and outs.

I'm hoping to return to Rome next year and will definately book into the Astoria Garden.

A Nice Stay

from Stackman97
Just got back from a month in Europe. My wife and I stayed at the Astoria Garden Hotel for about a week. It was a clean average room. The area left a little to be desired but it was safe and very close to the train station.

Stay here with children

from A TripAdvisor Member
We stayed here Easter week 2004 with our two young grandsons. We walked around the area with the boys at night and ate in great local restaurants. We didn't feel at all scared.
The hotel is in a great location- a quiet street about 5 minutes from the Termini. A bus from the nearby square will take you straight to the Colloseum. There is even a small street market nearby.
We had a large room with a balcony overlooking the garden. The staff were good with the children and very helpful with queries. The breakfast room is small and you may have to wait if you turn up at a busy time.
One tip - avoid crossing through the bus station in front of the Termini. If you go out of the exit on the right hand side of the station and take the pedestrian crossing, the hotel street is a few blocks away.

About what I expected

from A TripAdvisor Member
We stayed here for three nights. I was a little scared about recent reviews, but kept our reservation as we wanted to be near Termini Train Station. It is very close to the train station (as long as you walk out the correct door - which we did not). It is great for local transportation. We did not feel threatened in the area at night, but it's certainly not a great area. Our room was very small but had everything we needed. Staff was very pleasant and went out of their way to be helpfull. Breakfast was minimal but adequate. Our room was very quiet with a veranda looking out into the interior courtyard. I would not be opposed to staying here again, but would probably look for something in a better area first.

Top Local Tips for Rome

Walk like a Roman There is public transport in Rome, and it is cheap, but you get more out of walking around. If you aren't too keen on the trek, then I'd recommend buying one ticket, and walking to a place of interest, and getting the Metro or Tram/Bus back. That way you'll get the best of both worlds.

The Metro Card The first thing you should do when you get to Rome is go buy your Metro card, which works for the "Metro" and the buses. It's VERY VERY easy to get around using the Metro, just check your watch because alot of the stations close by 10pm, and the whole public transporttaion system is closed by midnight. After midnight, you'll notice a definate increase in taxi fares.

Good restaurant I read a previous tripadvisors review about Dagnino, a small restaurant near the Piazza Republica, adjacent to Termini. I am a New Yorker as well and went there based on his review and was rewarded with some of the best desserts that I had eaten in Italy. You could go there everyday and never have the same thing twice. They make their own gelati and they are fabulous.
