Historical Traveller Reviews of Italia 2 Hotel

Clean, comfortable and affordable

from BGDC
Hotel Italia was a pleasant place to stay in Rome. Upon our arrival we were put in the Annex (or Hotel Italia II), which is across the street. The only problem with the Annex is that the hotel wants guests to leave their key at the front desk when they go out, so every time you leave you have to walk across the street and walk up a couple of flights of stairs and then walk down before you can go anywhere. This got to be a pain. The room was clean and plain, but at about E115 a night in April was a good deal. The bath had been renovated recently with faux marble that looked nice enough. Everyone at the hotel was very friendly and spoke English, even when I tried to speak Italian. The hotel is centrally located and about a 15-20 minute walk to the Collosseum, Forum, Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain. The only place we didn’t walk to was Vatican City. It’s also close enough to walk to Termini and a cab ride should only be about E5-7. Upon our arrival in Rome, our cab driver tried to charge us E26 for the short ride. I refused. They must scam a lot of tourists this way, so beware, but obviously this has nothing to do with the hotel – but it’s a good warning about Rome.
There isn’t much character in the neighborhood immediately surrounding the hotel, so you need to venture out for sightseeing and dining. Some people on Trip Advisor have raved about the breakfast, but we didn’t find it to be anything special. The table service is nice, but pastries, cold pizza and red Kool-Aid seemed to be very odd choices. Maybe this is what they think Americans eat for breakfast (and some probably do) but I didn’t see these choices at any other hotel we stayed at while in Italy.
All in all, Hotel Italia is a good place to stay at a good price. It is a two-star hotel, I believe. Despite the rave reviews here, don’t get the impression this is a beautiful luxury hotel – it isn’t. But it’s clean and a good deal and I would stay here again.

Excellent Staff, Comfortable spotless rooms.

from Fawn424
Co-owner Andrea Valentini and his staff, especially Gabriel and Nadine, were really very, very helpful. Breakfast room nicely appointed, rose linen table cloths, china coffee & tea pots. No paper coffee cups here. Wait staff and cleaning staff dressed in pleasing rose pink uniforms. Most attractive. Superior breakfast , with room temp pizza a favorite. Liver pate also available, a favorite with my daughter. Can walk to most places of interest and if you are careful about pickpockets, can use bus 64 to go to Forum, Vatican etc. Bus and underground tickets are sold at the desk. Book early, very popular hotel and righly so.

Highly Recommend Hotel Italia

from kingofprussia
Hotel Italia is a small, budget hotel near the train station, the Trevi fountain, and the Church of San Maggiore. It is within walking distance of the major tourist sites, supermarkets, shopping, opera performances, and restaurants.The hotel was immaculately clean and the staff was extremely friendly. They helped obtain tickets, provided excellent restaurant recommendations, and arranged transport to and from the airport. (Not only will they give a wake-up call but they will come by your room to make sure you are ready). After we returned home, they contacted us that we had left a wallet in the room - the amount of money they said was in it was the exact amount and they arranged to mail it to us.Our room was exceptionally quiet and comfortable. The main lounge was clean and welcoming with breakfast served on beautiful china. In addition to the rooms which were more than adequate size by European budget standards, there are nice couches outside the rooms for reading or lounging. The bathroom was decorated in marble. Of all the budget-type hotels I have stayed in, I would rate this one the cleanest, quietest, and most friendly. I would not hestitate to return.This may not be for someone who demands a luxury hotel with a beautiful lobby or a location right by the forum, but for most this hotel will be exactly the right choice.

Super place, super price

from A TripAdvisor Member
My husband & I stayed at Hotel Italia in mid-March and found it to be delightful. The staff spoke excellent English and was extremely helpful. The breakfast was yummy....yogurt, cereals, pastries and delicious cappuccino, all included in the price, which was $100 euro. We stayed in the annex across the street. Our room was lovely (tiny, but functional) and the bathroom seemed to be newly-redone. The bed was very comfortable, which was great, because walking all over Rome can be exhausting. There was a great little bakery a few doors down, which had good pastries & delicious-looking sandwiches. I wished we'd picked up a few for a picnic lunch when visiting the Vatican Museum, for food locations there were hard to find!

Highly recommended!

We spent the last six nights of March 2004 in Room 50 at Hotel Italia II, the relatively new addition across the street commonly referred to as the "annex". Andrea Valentini, his mother and all the staff couldn't have been nicer. They can arrange a reasonable taxi to the airport, along with telling you where to get anything you need.

The room was very decent size by European standards. Parquet floors.
The furniture was basic yet functional. Our bath was great- marble, bidet, shower stall with glass door. There were doors opening onto a false balcony overlooking the street below. Hall noise is worse than street noise. The wonderful maid kept the place spotless. Lighting could have been a lot better in the room and bath. The phone wasn't working but Andrea let us use his.

The breakfast wass very good- croissants, pastries, rolls, yogurt, fruit cocktail and sometimes cold, leftover pizza (my favorite!). While main drag Via Nazionale is not the most appealing street, the hotel's location is great. You can walk to all th ehistoric sites, though the Vatican would be a haul. It is just three blocks to Teatro dell 'Opera.
Also, many good and upscale stores (Frette, Brioni, etc.) nearby that were having great sales when we were there. Try "Harley" on Via Nazionale for men's and women's clothes. Also, there's a restaurant called Il Quadrofoglio (sp?) a few blocks away that wasn't cheap but had great food. Never pay more than $15 euros for a bottle of wine wherever you eat.

For the price (we paid the high season rate of $113 euros with no hidden charges and everything included), I have no complaints. I think you'll be pleased with Hotel Italia.

Great value for Rome

from A TripAdvisor Member
The room was very basic but clean. The staff was friendly. The hotel was a close walk to the ancient Roman sites and an easy walk to the Metro to go to the Vatican. My only complaint is that the towels in this hotel (and other hotels in Italy) are like table cloths and are not very absorbent- I have no idea why they don't use terry cloth.

Promises Kept!

from A TripAdvisor Member
My wife and I and another couple stayed at the Hotel Italia for 2 nights early in March 2004. We paid 90 Euros cash per room with breakfast. The quiet location just off of Via Nazionale was a great base to visit Rome. Trevi Fountain and 2 Metro Train stops including the main station were within a 15 minute walk. The rooms were fine and the breakfast was good. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The only negative was a missed wake-up call by the fellow on the night desk. Fortunately we didn?t have a plane to catch! For a major world city Hotel Italia is a great bargain.

t wait to return

from A TripAdvisor Member
We recently spent four days 2 - 4 March '04 at the Hotel Italia. What a little gem, the hotel is situated off the Via Nazionale, quite close to the main bus and train station and within walking distance from the main attractions, others are easily reached by short bus journeys which run very frequently. The rooms were spotlessly clean and the continental buffet breakfast was good. However, what made our stay really special were Nadine and Anna, the wonderful hotel receptionists.
They could not have been more helpful, nothing was too much trouble for them, both spoke perfect English and both had a great sense of humour.
They were a mine of useful information on which buses to take, restaurants etc. We were so fortunate to pick this hotel for our first stay in Rome. What a wonderful city made even better by the Hotel Italia and especially Nadine and Anna. We can't wait to return.

Great for a small price

from A TripAdvisor Member
If you are OK with smaller rooms, then this is a great place. Besides, who wants to be in your hotel room anyway... Its Rome.We had 2 people splitting a room with a bathroom for 80 Euros a night. A good bargin for Roma! Close enough to everything by foot or a short bus ride to the vatican. Very friendly staff.

Great Value at Hotel Italia

from dfav
My sister and I just returned from a six night stay at hotel Italia on our first trip to Rome. The hotel was clean and comfortable and well located for the tourist - we walked just about everywhere! Our room had two twin size beds, a nook for one large suitcase, a desk for another and a bureau for a closet. The bathroom was modern and large with the exception of the typical, corner sized shower. The only complaint on the bathroom was nowhere to put your shampoo and soap in the shower except on the floor. A small investment of a soap caddy to hang on the shower head would solve that problem. The hotel breakfast was plentiful and good. All of the staff were super friendly, and the english speaking front desk staff were extremely helpful offering suggestions for restaurants, good directions, and tour ideas. All this for an off-season, Rick Steve's rate of $70 euro per night! I would definitely stay here again!

Top Local Tips for Rome

Palatine Hill, Colisuem at Night Don't skip it after the forum - the gardens were lovely and there is quite a sense of place there, commanding views, and we were there in January. Also the ruins and much of the city is very different at night, it seemed quite safe. The various churches and statues take on a different feeling by the light of the moon.

Getting around Rome We are in our 50s and like to walk. You can literally walk all of Rome in 2 days and see just about every ancient ruin and museum. It does get a little tough on the feet walking on cobble type stones that date back to the 13th century, though. We did hop the subway to the Vatican. The subway is pretty easy to figure out, relatively inexpensive, and will take you just about anywhere you want to go. We took a day trip train ride to Florence. Slightly pricey, but worth the trip! Book your Florence museum passes online in advance - you'll save lots of time from waiting in line with those who didn't.

Vatican and Coliseum Admission VERY long queues at both no matter what time you arrive (unless you don't go to bed!) Book you tickets in advance (check their websites) Also, many attractions are closed on a Sunday. Example...We arrived at the Vatican Museum at 10.30 am (30 mins after opening) to a 3 hour queue. It is 13 euro admission. We were approached on the street by a tour quide who said for 40 euro we could jumo the queue, get a ticket and have a tour.....dodgy I hear you say? I thought so. Paid him anyway! Jumped the queue and had a very informative 3 hour tour from him. Same story at the Colliseum.
