Loved this hotelfrom violinman
Great hotel for the moneyfrom mike195
We had 2 rooms, one for my wife and me, as well as a triple for my 3 teens. The rooms, although small, are recently renovated and very comfortable. The beds were great, the internet worked (about 15 euro for 48 hours) and the showers, although small and bizarre (think of a sideways hot tub) got the job done. The front desk staff was helpful.
My biggest initial concern from the negative reviews was the location. This turned out to be one of the best parts. you are in Rome, but away from the tourist crowd and traffic. The #8 tram stops directly across the street and takes you to Largo Argentina in about 10-15 minutes. This puts you in the center of Rome. We rode this everyday with a 1 euro ticket which is good for 75 minutes. The Tabacci shop which everyone writes about (one block to the left) was closed for August holiday, so we walked about 2 more blocks to find one open. I stocked up on tickets while I was there. The neighborhood (I'd call it east Trastevere) was great to walk in. We found excellent restaurants within a 10 -15 min. walk (head left towards the river, turn left at the hospital, right on the next street....I can't remember the names of the streets or plaza) . Excellent restaurants, reasonably priced. We had no desire to go back into the heart of the city to eat.
I highly reccomend this hotel for the location and value.
Wonderful hotelfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Highly recommendedfrom mrlucas
Great location. Train service from airport to 1/4 mile from hotel took less than 20 mins and cost €5 per person.
Hotel is on main road but not noisey. Advantage is trams and buses 100 yds from hotel which take you right into heart of the city. Recommend buy €4 ticket from tobacconist 100 yds from hotel for all day travel.
Rooms are recently decorated and everything is very new. Bed matresses are something else and guaranteed good night's sleep after exhausting sight seeing all day.
Bathrooms excellent especially those showers!
Trastevere is a residential area - for those tired after a day's sightseeing then take the tram two stops and then a short walk to Piazza San Egidio where there are a number of bars and restaurants. Ivo is a cheap local pizzeria or for something a bit different Glass.
If you don't want to walk too far then 200 yds from the hotel on the main street is Le Fate another excellent restaurent - our favourite, with a waitress who hailed from New Jersey.
Most Amazing Shower and Excellent Hotel!from ladybrooke
Our triple room was the perfect size, clean and beautifully decorated. The beds were extremely comfortable...Tempurpedic mattresses (sp?) and pillows. The most amazing thing was the shower....you have to experience it to appreciate it. It had a radio, mood lighting, multiple jets (at least 40), which shoot water at you from all sides and a whirligig at the top. Also, it fills up at the bottom for a foot jacuzzi and there were steam jets, which I assume would give a sauna effect. I almost peed myself laughing at my husband's squeals as he tried the shower out for the first time. The towels were a good size, and they provided us with slippers and comfy robes.
The rooftop terrace was wonderfully relaxing with comfortable furniture and candles...we could have sat there forever gazing at the view. They have a telescope so you can see the stars or zoom at monuments/buildings. The only thing that was a little disappointing was the food. Since they prepare it downstairs, it was a bit cold. Considering the excellent service and lovely rooftop setting it didn't seem to matter much. However, If you choose not to eat at the restaurant, I would definitely recommend having a drink on the rooftop to experience the view and ambiance.
The windows are well insulated, so there is no street noise. It was a Sunday and we could not even hear the street market, which starts at 5 a.m. across the street from the hotel.
The tram, which stops just outside the hotel, drops you off at Alexandra (near the Pantheon) in under 10 minutes. You can buy tickets at the Tobacco shop a couple doors down from the hotel for 1 Euro (good for 75 minutes).
We will definitely stay at the Trilussa Palace Hotel on our next trip and will recommend it highly to all our friends.
Average hotel, reviewers much too generous with reviews!from A TripAdvisor Member
Yes, it’s true the rooms are very small and there is only one armoire to hang your clothes in. No dresser draws. No phone book, no bedside alarm clock, no Rome magazines letting you know what’s going on while you’re in town. Many reviewers raved about the massage shower. It’s not what you expect. It’s a very tiny pre-fab shower. If you drop the soap, you have to squat to pick it up. We found we had to shut off the water midway during our shower and continue soaping while the water drained very slowly from the floor pan. And yes, like one reviewer said, the bars of soap are very tiny. For 250 a night, I expect a decent sized bar of hotel soap, skip the chintzy shoe polish gizmos and two shower caps – does anyone even use those anymore? No wash cloths provided either. For any woman who uses the bidet, ours only had cold water. Even though the room is small, as most are in Europe, we were fine with the size and cleanliness. But the bathroom is very tiny. Yes, it has marble in it, but the door only swings half way open because the bidet and toilet are in the way.
Moving on to the service. When we arrived several hours before check in, we only had to wait an hour to get our room. Our bags were securely stored in a locked conference room until the room was ready. When our room was ready, I had to go find the luggage guy (out in front hosing the walkway) to bring our bags upstairs. The front desk clerk was not the most helpful person. Later that day when we asked about getting a bus ticket, he told us with a motion of his arm, down that way to the left. We walked up and down the street looking for a bus ticket office, nothing. We opted to hail a cab, but got frustrated with that because there didn’t seem to be any driving by. We should have read the trip reviews more closely because one person did write about getting the bus ticket at the tobacco store one block away. We never did take the bus. The two or three times we called the front desk for wake up calls, etc., the phone must have rung about 30 times before someone picked up.
The breakfast was ok, your usual choice of several cereals, a juice machine, fruit that was not very fresh, some average pastries and fresh ham and Swiss cheese. The ham and cheese were very good. The good thing about the breakfast is it saves you from having to find a place to eat in the morning, not the most convenient location to find something close that’s also open.
Next the location. Many reviewers raved on this site about Trastevere. When we first arrived, we were not pleased with the appearance of the area. Graffiti everywhere and trash in the parking lot and streets. Such a shame, but it’s all over Rome as well. After the first day, we figures out where the restaurants were located and it ended up being a nice walk to dinner. For first timers, you may want to stay within closer proximity to the sites. From our initial research, it seemed like this would be a close enough location to walk to some sites, but with weather temps consistently in the 90’s, it was too much on top of the all day walking you will normally do. Maybe if the weather had been in the 70’s we wouldn’t have minded as much. If you’re a taxi person, good luck. As I stated earlier, we walked and walked trying to hail a cab. Finally figured out the cab stand is about a 15 minute walk down the street. Then you get in line behind everyone else. If you want a cab, ask the guy at the front desk to call for one, it’s much quicker.
Our recommendation would be to stay here if the rate is much lower (80-125) than what we paid (250). Don’t expect much in the way of services or amenities or lovely appearance of the outside area (trash pickers in the dumpster right out front). If you do get a decent rate and don’t mind staying farther away from the sites, then this is a clean place with decent restaurants within a ten minute walk. When visiting a city like Rome, you aren’t in your hotel room much anyway. But a nice sized shower after a long hot day would have been nice.
If you do stay here, there are some very good places to eat. One is the pizza place across the street, just to the right. Can’t remember the name, but it’s actually run by Chinese people. Lots of great selections of fresh pizza. Always had a steady stream of customers.
Also down the street to the left, past the tobacco shop and farmacia, hang a left and you’ll find many places to eat. The first place we went (sorry, can’t remember the name “L’…..”) I would not recommend it any way. They did not have half of what was on the menu and the price was double (about 100E) what we paid elsewhere. Our second night we had a much better experience for half the price (50E for appetizer, dinner, dessert and wine). Keep in mind some places don’t open for dinner until 7 pm. The third night we ate at LaTorre on Via Natale Del Grande. We both liked LaTorre the best out of all the places we went for dinner! Again, very reasonably priced, about 50-60E for appetizer, dinner, dessert, wine and grappa.
Don't expect much here, your basic tiny hotel room not located in the greatest area. If you get a great room rate, you can overlook the negatives.
Rip offfrom A TripAdvisor Member
I am 50 years old paying over $200 per night. I don't lie and I tried to gently explain this to them. They still would not allow me to speak with the manager, nor would they take the charges off of my bill.
My feeling is you can find a more honest hotel in a far better location than this one. The rooms are extremely small, no bureau, and no natural light.
Trastevere Great Locationfrom Beatrix
We found the information on (---) .
There are also other Rome Hotels in that website with the cheaper rate on the web ...
No security!!! I was robbedfrom A TripAdvisor Member
After that, the front desk DIDNT KNOW ENGLISH!!!! SO they didnt have to deal with us.
Please dont stay there, its very pricy, rooms are to small, they to have wonderful breakfast, i think that was the only good thing about the hotel.
Staff has an attitude, and if u only paying for a bed and no security, dont stay there. please
good hotel,but minor problemsfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The internet facility was not available though they mentioned about the TV with internet on expedia,(which may not be important to everyone),the pay movie channel was out of order,both of these were not fixed by the time we left the hotel ,despite repeated requests.Staff
Takes atleast 1 hr 15 min to reach Ciampino by bus/tram,but costs only 3 euros.Taxi costs 20 euros one way.
Top Local Tips for Rome
Vatican City Tour Even in February the queues are horrendous to enter the Vatican. Go to Viator.com and book a guided tour to beat the queues. You'll learn so much more about the place and you will get inside in minutes rather than hours. My 3.5 hour tour actually lasted for nearly four hours. But the fifteen of us taking it thoroughly enjoyed it. The Vatican is quite some place.
vatican . get a guide
The Vatacan City We paid 25 Euros for an American guide called Jason, who approached us at St Peters, we normally don't bother and do our own thing but this time I'm glad we didn't, it was brilliant, all done via head phones, the first tour of St Peters was free then you had to pay for the next tour, it was worth every scent.
