Great hotel

from caroblue
Just returned from Europe and wanted to write this while it's fresh in my mind. I chose the Oceania based on Rick Steves' book and this website. Both proved to be correct in their recommendations. We stayed five nights, March 4-9, 2005.

The hotel promptly answered all emails. We were three women traveling together and had a beautiful room with damask wallcoverings and lush bedding. The room was small but the high ceilings make it seem more spacious. It was kept immaculately clean by the maid. We joked every morning that we better pick up our stuff off the floor, because everything we left laying around, she picked up, neatly folded and put on suitcases or tables.

The bathroom was small, with the typical dishtowel-type towels, although they were plenty big and were fine. My only complaint was the shower stall was flat with the floor, so you had to point the shower head to the wall or else the floor would get very wet. Plenty of hot water at night.

The hotel itself occupies the third floor of a very large old building. It's not much to look at on the outside, but the quaint caged elevator whisks you up to the beautiful hotel. There is a good-sized breakfast room with excellent coffee, big rolls and sweets, and a choice of orange, grapefruit or pineapple juice every morning. And if you want a small bottle of wine, soda or bottled water, it's always available from the bar. The cozy lounge area features leather sofas, a plasma TV and a bookcase with all kinds of novels to borrow. There are English newspapers and magazines laid out on the coffee table for your perusal.

The staff was without a doubt the best part of the experience. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. Enrico was especially patient and answered my many questions. He gave us some great restaurant suggestions.

The hotel, at my request, also arranged a private car pickup both to and from the airport (we paid the hotel for this). The cost was the same: 47 Euros for the ride from Ciampino to the hotel, and then again for the trip from the hotel to Fiumancino. Well worth the cost, in my opinion.

The location is on a side street off busy Via Nationale. Our room, number 4, overlooked Via Firenze and you could hear traffic noise at night (those blasted scooters!). I had earplugs with me so it wasn't a problem, but other light sleepers might want to bring some along.

We felt extremely safe walking around the area during the day and at night.

All in all, a great hotel and a good value for the money.

A Great Hotel!

We just returned from our first visit to Rome. We stayed at Hotel Oceania based mainly on the reviews from Trip Advisor and were not in the least disappointed. The room was clean and the hotel staff extremely kind and helpful. The breakfast was ample and the coffee was awesome! They even sent a shuttle service to meet us at the airport which was such a relief since we arrived in the evening and were not looking forward to finding our way in an unknown city. I would recommend this hotel to anyone searching for a good place to stay at a very reasonable rate! We certainly would stay again should we visit this wonderful city!

Great Hotel

Really great location, great hotel, spacious rooms, no complaints what so ever, would return any time.

Wonderful!

from laneycakes
Hi

Just returned from a 2 night stay in rome at the oceania for valentines weekend. What a gem the oceania is! I booked based on the recommendations on trip advisor and a listing in lonely planet, and i wasnt disapointed! The room was lovely and spacious with a large bathroom with a nice hot shower and wonderfully decorated. At 94 euros a night for a double at what i guess is a busy weekend for rome i think we bagged a definate bargain! The breakfast was great a nice big roll and plenty of tea coffee and yummy pastries - just the thing to set you up for a long days walking! Also nice to be up on the 3rd floor - good views and quieter from this level (and if you're tired the lift is a welcome relief!). The position is good too - a 20 minute stroll from the colluseum, 10 mins from the spanish steps and trevi fountain, and depending how fast you go about 45mins to an hour walk from the vatican

There were plenty of restaurants in the area ranging from cheap pizzeria's (fab pizza for 4 euro!) to more upmarket sit down ristorantes.

All in all a great place to stay in a fab city.

Superb find !!!

Just returned back from a trip to Rome. Booked a family room at the Oceania largely based on recommendations on this site and what appeared to be a very reasonable price for Rome...

This is an absolute gem, 10 minutes walk from Termini, on quiet street off the Via Nazionale. Small, family-run hotel in part of 19th century palace... the 'part' being the 3rd floor, so don't be put off the rather gloomy communal stairs (also there is a lift) as on the 3rd floor you emerge into a warm and welcoming little oasis. Scrupulously clean, lovely clean crisp bed linen, and well maintained and decorated in traditional Italian style...walls aren't painted or wall-papered but covered in damask-type fabric !

Small breakfast room, with juices, tea, coffee etc, huge fresh bread rolls and a sideboard covered with cakes, pastries etc to help yourself from.

All staff are extremely friendly and welcoming, great for providing information, recommendations etc.

We paid 138 Euros a night for a large family room, with own bathroom (shower not bath) and breakfast, which I suspect is a bargain in Rome for this quality of accommodation.

Fantastico !

from A TripAdvisor Member
Just returned from 4 days in Rome, February 2005. This hotel is fantastic. Location excellent, staff exceptionally friendly and helpful (suggested restaurants were first class), decor quite beautiful. Excellent value for money, would definately go back again.

Absolutely Amazing!

from MeliMel215
We recently came back from a trip to Italy (mostly Rome). Having been to Italy before, I wasn't expecting too much from the hotel I had booked. I was so surprised at how wonderful the Oceania was! Everything was immaculate and the staff was so amazing! They were very helpful and treated us like family! When we unexpectedly returned to Rome in the middle of our trip, I called them from about 2 minutes away and they gave us a room! We were so happy to get back to the tastey breakfast and the most delicious coffee! Not to mention the amazing staff! (We kept refering to the Oceania as "home" while we were away.) I can not wait to go back to Rome again and stay in the Oceania!

A delightful hotel

from CDPLAYER78
A great location within walking distance of Via Veneto, Spanish steps and Station Termini. The room was large and the bathroom modern. Very quiet location and the staff was very friendly and helpful at all times. Have stayed in this area before but this was the first time at this hotel. We will be returning to the Oceania in the future.

Excellent budget hotel choice

from DogenJoe
This family-run hotel is well-manged, quiet, clean, and up-to-date. They are incredibly friendly and gave us perfect restaurant recommendations. My parents and I enjoyed our stay.

Top Local Tips for Rome

Visiting the Vatican If you want to visit the Vatican during your stay in Rome, we found that getting there no later than 8:15 am (it opens at 8:45) and seeing the Vatican Museum first was the best way to do it. (side note: we were there in March, not during high tourist season. Perhaps in June things are different, and you may have to arrive a bit earlier). We arrived by 8:15 and were about 20 yards back from the front of the line. By the time we got into the museum (about 45 minutes later) the line was all the way down the street and wrapping around the Vatican walls. By the time we left the museum, we were told the wait time in line was 2-3 hours (and sure to be longer in high tourist season). While you wait, there is a cafe across the street from where the line is, and one person in your group can easily go get coffee (to go, even!) and pastries for breakfast. Once you are done with the museum, head to St. Peter's Basilica where the line might look long and daunting, but it moves very fast.

Visiting the Colosseum When visiting the Colosseum, utilize a guided tour. With a guided tour you will avoid the long lines, and literally walk past the lines into the facility. It is very difficult to understand what you are seeing without a tour guide. There was an agency that was solicitating people for a tour just outside the Colosseum. We were skeptical at first, but for 21 euros you got a tour guide and head sets to hear the guide through out the journey. You could ask questions of the guide, and he was very knowledgeable. After that tour, included in your 21 euros you could also tour Palatine Hill. Another great tour, and again you would have no idea what you are looking at without the guide.

Stay as centrally located as possible A lot of the chain hotels are located outside of the city and require a bus ride to and from. Staying at a centrally located hotel such as the Hotel Oceania makes your trip to Rome much more enjoyable.
