Historical Traveller Reviews of Julia Hotel

Just what i wanted!!

from nicolekristine
Wonderful! I really enjoyed my stay. The staff were EXTREMELY nice and helpful and the location is great. REALLY close to the Barbini Metro stop and Trevi Fountain (sort of inbetween the two).

My room was fine, nothing special but all is needed. It had a desk, chair, closet, tv, and small table. I had my own bathroom but a shared shower, which was fine. The breakfast was also fine. Not a ton of food (which I think is normal for Rome) but was enough to get you going in the morning. I would definitely recommend this hotel! Great value for your money (especially in Rome!)

Great value for money

from Nikka
Very friendly staff and a great location. It was nice to stay a little bit away from the huge tourist hotels. You could easily walk to most of the main attractions (Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps, etc) but also could walk in the opposite direction and be amongst the Romans. A good breakfast although the staff did seem rushed off their feet and so were a bit behind in taking coffee orders, etc. Very clean rooms, if small (although what you expect in Europe)

Great Price for Solo Travellers!

from odderie
After booking this hotel at the rate of 60 Euros per night, I was a little apprehensive to see what that super bargain price would get me. I was not disappointed, and it was a great value for the price. I am a single female who travelled to Rome alone.


Location:
The location was awesome! Even though it is in the middle of the city center, it's on a quiet side street that was safe and, while not well lit, nevertheless never made me uncomfortable for my safety.

I didn't try public transportation, but there's a train stop about 1.5 blocks away that will take you to the Vatican. I myself walked everywhere, including the Colosseum and the Vatican Museums. The Trevi Fountain was a 5 minute walk! The Spanish Steps took about 10 minutes. The Colosseum took perhaps 20-25 minutes, and the Vatican took 35-40 minutes. Don't be discouraged by those times, though, because Rome is a beautiful place to stroll and explore!


Hotel Room:
I booked one of the "Economy Single" rooms that has a toilet en suite, but no shower. The shower I used was on the same floor as my room. The hotel room was pretty dang small -- maybe 8 feet x 14 feet, about 4 feet x 5 feet of which is a separate room/cubby hole for toilet and sink. Even so, I didn't have a problem with the size of the room because (let's be honest) you're not going to be spending much time there! There was a twin sized bed with a firm mattress and two pillows, a desk with chair (I put the chair off to the side to give me more walking room), a dresser with in-room safe, and a TV suspended on a TV stand up above the desk. There's a window in the room, too!

The room and bathroom were very clean. I don't think they changed the sheets every day of my stay, but that didn't bother me because they were changed upon my arrival. (I didn't need fresh sheets when the only person sleeping in the bed was me, after all.)

As for provisions, there were towels in the bathroom that were pretty big and thick (not the handrags that people had led me to expect!). There were also soap bars, shampoo, plastic cups, and extra toilet paper.


Shared Shower:
I had no idea what to expect from the shower. The shower was okay. It was surprisingly light (white and cream decor) and well-lit. That was definitely a plus. The water pressure was good, but the temperature was temperamental. I had to adjust the temperature multiple times during the course of my shower (usually about 7-10 minutes long). The door didn't close all the way as the bottom corner was misshapen in some way (2nd floor shower). Also, they didn't empty the garbage at all during my stay (6 nights), which was pretty gross. Luckily, the trash can was covered.

Even so, when you take into account the fact that you're only showering once a day, it wasn't a bad place to shower for those 10 minutes. Having lived two years in a university dormitory with shared bathrooms, I wasn't really put off by the bathrooms. I just wore shower shoes (flip flops) into the shower, and it was fine.


Hotel Staff:
Almost everybody at the hotel was great. They spoke some English, and they appreciated it whenever I attempted to say things in italiano. (Italian is such a beautiful language!) Anyway, they were (for the most part) helpful.

I got a bad vibe/attitude from one of the front desk guys, but as that was only one of the four people manning the front desk over the course of a day, I just paid him no heed.

Even so, there was a disappointing situation at the end of my stay when I was charged 1 Euro/LOCAL phone call (using a calling card purchased at a tobacco shop -- the best deal for calling back to the US!) even though the bad vibe guy had TOLD me that local calls are not charged. It was really not cool.

Be sure to have the hotel reserve a spot for you in the "Hotel Reservation" shuttle if you are arriving at Fiumicino airport. At 12 Euros, it is the BEST deal for not having to deal with the Termini station or, alternatively, 50 Euros for a taxi. You only get that 12 Euro price if the hotel itself reserves the spot for you, though.


Breakfast:
I didn't expect much from the breakfast after hearing many negative things about the "breakfast included" breakfasts that hotels in Rome usually provide. It was pretty good, though, to start the day with. I'm not a coffee drinker (a shame in Rome, I know!), so I can't attest to the quality of the coffee. The bread rolls were REALLY good, though, and they have a selection of toppings (honey, jams, butter, and this awesome Nutella-like stuff called "Nutkao"). There was also sliced salami, cold cereal, and croissants.


OVERALL:
This was a great little hotel for resting my head each night. Be sure to find out about ALL of the charges involved in your using their facilities (phone calls!!). Bring a pair of shower shoes (or buy a pair there) and you'll be set.

Great Deal, Awesome Location

from A TripAdvisor Member
This hotel is an excellent deal with a great location in Rome! It has a small, more bread and breakfast feel to it, but not intrusive as one may think. The room was of decent size and was clean. The bed was a little lumpy, but the bedspread was comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They even helped my husband receive emergency medical assistance while were there by helping us communciate in Italian. Felt very safe. I would recommend this hotel because it is within walking distance of everything in Rome and is close to the train station, and subway lines!

Perfect location

from A TripAdvisor Member
Hotel Julia is in a perfect location. A few other 4 star hotels are right in the same area. Close to the metro, 5 min from Trevi fountain and a 10 min walk to the spanish steps. 15min walk to the train station. I stayed in a single room, 401, hot water for the shower was a bit tricky as you have to turn on the sink faucet for the water to work in the shower...but otherwise very friendly, and clean hotel. The shuttle bus to and from the airport works well and is a deal at 12 euros each way.

Enjoyed this hotel, a great deal in Rome

from TravelerfromCanada
I stayed here for five nights in January. I paid 50 Euros per night, which was pretty good considering part of my stay was during high season. I had a single room with an ensuite toilet and sink and hairdryer, and a bathroom down the hall that was to be for my "exclusive use". As it turned out, I think someone else used the bathroom even if they weren't supposed to. But this was a minor detail, as I only needed the shower, which was perfectly comfortable in my case (not small as described in other reviews). They could put an extra lock on the bathroom, though. Towels and toiletries were generous and replenished daily. The room was clean, and had a single bed, small wardrobe, chest of drawers, table, chair, and TV that was ceiling-mounted. Of course it was on the small side but you expect that in Europe for budget accommodation, and I felt very comfortable taking a break there and sleeping there. There was rarely any noise from the street and my sleep was never disturbed.

Breakfast was very good by Italian standards. I hope I recall everything available, but there were croissants, baguettes, jams and marmalade, cream cheese, butter, nut spread, yogurt, cornflakes, tortes, ham or salami, tea, coffee, real orange juice, other mixed juice, coffee, milk, tea, and cappucinos and other such hot drinks on request. No problems with quantity or quality and this was a great start to my day.

The staff were very friendly.

The location seemed ideal. It is close to the metro stop for going to St. Peters and the Vatican. Otherwise, I found it an easy walk to the Trevi, the Pantheon, Piazza Navona, Campo dei Fiori, and more. I did take the metro to the Colosseum, but that was more for a chance to take a slight break from walking.

Great value (location+price+quality)

from elanamig
We stayed in this hotel from Oct 23 - Oct 31 2004. We paid 150 euro per night per couple. This is a great hotel in many ways.

PRO:
#1. Very quiet. We stayed in room #309, which was facing the back street, and there was absolutely no noise.
#2. Clean
#3. SUPERB location - within walking distance of everyting, 2 mins from the Trevi fountain, 5 mins from the Spanish steps, 20 mins to Piazza Navona and the Pantheon and to the colloseum and the forums.
#4. Nice (unlimited) breakfast + free espresso/cappuccino (but you have to ask for it)
#5. Friendly, English speaking staff.
#6. Reasonable rates - compared to other hotels in the center of Rome.
#7. Large (almost queen size) bed
#8. HUGE bathroom.

CON:
#1. Room is tiny - furniture takes up almost the entire space.
#2. Shower is narrow (about 3 feet x 3 feet). I was surprised by this, because the bathroom was huge. I don't understand why they didn't take up more space for the shower.

TO CONSIDER:
There were larger rooms in this hotel, but they were more expensive. Since our goal was to walk as much as possible and stay inside as little as possible, the size of the room didn't bother us. Location of the hotel is great. Overall, we were very pleased with our choice, and will recommend this hotel to everyone.

Decent hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
The room was clean, and very reasonably priced. It was a European-sized room, with a SMALL corner shower. If you're plus-sized, it's something to consider.

A very good location. It's a five minute walk to Trevi Fountain, not much more to the Spanish Steps. About a two minute walk to the Barberini Metro stop.

For a bit more, you can stay at the sister property next door....Domus Julia. Much larger rooms, same staff and excellent location.

Yuck!

from tricianeff
We certainly did not look forward to coming back to our hotel after a long day in Rome. It is a good thing we didn't plan on spending any time here! The room was so small, we didn't have a place to lay out 2 suitcases. One blocked the door, the other the closet. The bathroom was small and not so clean! Low light, VERY noisy. We were on the first floor and we could here people going up and down the steps, the elevator all night, and the trash being picked up right outside our window every morning at 6am! Breakfast was below average as well. Besides the location, which was great, this hotel has little to offer!

Very pleasant hotel in outstanding location

from A TripAdvisor Member
This is a great place to stay if you're a walker. For a walker, the place is within walking distance from everything. For those who prefer public transit, the hotel is two blocks from subway and close to numerous buses. It's very convenient. The staff was extremely gracious and helpful. There were some small glitches--AC malfunctioned first night and shower door came off its track--but these were minor and were fixed. Breakfast is good: rolls (regular and cornetti), butter, jam, ham, cheese cereal, coffee, juice, and an incredible frothy, lightly sweetened yogurt. Coffee and tea, of course. Although the stairway isn't pristine, the concern about the dirty stairs and walls is unfounded. It's just a typical modest European hotel in that regard. One can always take the elevator, anyway. The Hilton it's not, but the rooms are clean and well-cared for. I was on first floor in the front, and while the street was somewhat noisy during the day, it quieted down at night. The description of the hotel as quiet is pretty accurate. Photos on the web are accurate. In fact, breakfast room is cheerier than the photo suggests. I would certainly stay at the Hotel Julia again. It's an excellent deal.

Top Local Tips for Rome

Avoid being overcharged If you don't want bread with your meal, tell them right away. They will automatically put bread on your table and charge you 3 Euros. If only one person wants bread, tell them. then check your bill to be sure they charged you only 1.50 Euros. Find a small grocery store and buy your own water. Water at resturants is 4 Euros per bottle, and from street carts, 2 or 3 Euros. Ask if service is included in the bill. Sometimes it is - that's their tip. Some resturants near - not in - the Vatican add on a 'tax'. One tried to charge us 5 Euros on a E25 tab. There is no tax. Want to sit outside to eat? Ask if there is a cover charge for this before you sit down. Some have it, but many don't. Ask other tourists for their recommendations when you are traveling - and benefit from their mistakes and successes.

Collisseum/Vatican Dont q, simply go to the front of the line and reserve your place for the following day, avoid the Vatican museums in the morning, its much quieter in the afternoon.

ticket staying more than 4 days in Rome then get a 7 day rover for 16 euros
