A fantastic hotel

A truly lovely hotel. Within easy walking distance of the tube, railway stations and all of Rome's beautiful attractions. Very CLEAN and FUNKY rooms. English speaking staff were so helpful. We will stay there again, as they looked after us and our 2 young children so well. Our friends who have 3 young children had a brilliant family room too. Air-con was great (and quiet) as it was hot in the city in August. A great hotel for both families and couples. Fantastic Bistro opposite the hotel where we had a good breakfast. We'd recommend the Peppered steak there for an evening meal - Wow!).

I had a wonderful time staying at ‘Hotel Romae'! It had all we expected and more. The staff were very helpful & friendly. It had a charming elegant atmosphere in a traditional style building. We particularly loved the courtyard garden by the bar and the large continental breakfast that was included in the price.

A bunch of friends & I have been travelling throughout Europe & this was the nicest hotel so far. Wonderfully friendly staff. Very helpful. Beautiful, comfortable rooms. Free internet was a good bonous. Within easy walking distance to Spanish Steps, Collosseum etc., perfect for exploring this historic city.

I stayed in ‘Hotel Romae' with my husband and three children. I found the staff very helpful and friendly. We had no problem getting from the Termini to the hotel, it was only a short walk. Rome is such a beautiful & historical city we had plenty to see during the day. The hotel is very central so it was near all the main attractions we wanted to see. In the evening we all relaxed in this beautiful little courtyard garden in the hotel which had a widescreen TV and small bar. I would definitely return to ‘Hotel Romae' if I were to come to Rome again!!

I just came home from my visit in rome. I stayed with my husband at the hotel for 5 nights, and it was great!! The whole staff was friendly, helpful and english speaking and they made our holiday so much easier. I want to thank you all for that, you're awesome! Our room was so much better than I excpected and the location and everything was perfekt. No clubs in the same house as in our last hotel. The breakfast was also great. Thank you all for everything, I'll definitely come there again when I come to rome!!!

Good Vibes All Around

from voicegirl1
Just spent 3 nights in Rome at this charming hotel with my mother, sister and 18 year old neice. We had two rooms. My neice and I stayed in room 15, which had a comfortable double and single bed. While not large, the rooms are certainly clean and the whole place has a certain charm. The high ceiling and mirrored closet doors made it feel larger than it was. Someone else described it as a hostel-like atmosphere and I would agree. There was a really upbeat, nice feeling here. The front desk was mostly staffed by international college students who were friendly, bright and on the ball, though the guy we got at check out needed some help from a colleague to do our bill and almost charged us more than our travel agent had arranged. They cheerfully corrected the mistake.. I'm kind of a "princess" when it comes to hotel rooms, I might have preferred a 4 star, but because my mother and sister were on a budget, we chose this 3 star. I was quite comfortable and happy here.

Nice touches were baskets of fruit in our rooms when we arrived, tumbled marble tiles in the bath. Free use of the internet on the computer in the TV room. We arrived in the heat of the Roman summer and the air conditioning was great. I agree with the other travellers who complained about the acoustics. When you are in the bathroom you can hear everything thats going on in the other rooms. This didnt bother me when we slept as long as we kept the bathroom door closed. The breakfast buffet was at a lovely trattoria across the street and was also good. Lots to choose from including fresh fruit, breads, juice, cold cuts, cereals and good coffee and teas. We enjoyed it outside in the cafe. Another plus is the proximity to the Termini train and bus station. You are a short 15 minute walk away. But be careful when you arrive. We got ripped off by an unscrupulous taxi driver who charged us 35 Euros for a ride that should have cost about 5,

Superb value for money !!

from BellaBelgica
Compared to other hotels in Rome in the same price range this is a beauty and we consider this a highly recommendable hotel. We had a clean room with a very nice bathroom attached. Breakfast was served in the Bistro nextdoors and was, by Italian standards, huge and very varied. We enjoyed our breakfast every single one of the seven days we spent in hotel Romae. For a three star hotel, this one offers really good value for money! To make it short: we would recommend this hotel to everyone and we would definitely stay here again!

Best breakfast in Rome included

from VirginiaMamaGoose
Hotel Romae was wonderful, with an English speaking staff who went out of their way to answer any and all questions. Free Internet services are available for guests, and the free breakfast buffet is extensive. Our room on the courtyard side was quiet, and the hotel is within four blocks of Termini. We walked to most of the tourist attractions. In addition, several neighborhood restaurants are available for evening dining.

Great stay!

from kamahoney
I was traveling with a friend, so we were looking for cheap accomodations that were not far out of our life style (we're both late 20's and live in Manhattan, so we're not used to roughing it). I stayed here for 1 night because we were unsure of the location, so when we tried to extend our stay they were booked. The location is ok... We did need to take cabs to go out at night, but we walked all over Rome during the day from the hotel. The bathroom appeared to be recently updated and the bedroom was surprisingly bigger than expected (two twin beds but room to put our luggage out on the floor). The hotel was safe, clean and the room quiet. We were able to use the free internet, which is appreciated whenever traveling. The breakfast was across the street and it was better than some Italian breakfasts I have seen. The staff was also very nice and helpful.

I was staying in hotel romae about a week ago whith my wife to spend our Anniversary wich was on the 12 so u can imagine that it was a very special day for us and Valentine day was just around the corner so i had to make sure that it was good for the both of us and i must say that everything went great when we got there we didnt even have to wait for anything they just give us our room and sais we could come back later to pick up our papers and sign so it was a good start especially after a long trip apart from that when we did go back to the reception and everyone was kind enough to tell us about the best places to go to at night in rome they even book us to a night tour wich was very romantic the fact that every thing went perfect in our first day in rome was very good sign of how great our life is goona be in the future the fact that we didnt have to worry about anything there cause they told us evrything we needed to do and places to go is excellent service to me.

Great place in most recommendable location!!!

from A TripAdvisor Member
We visited Rome and stayed at Hotel Romae for 4 days last December and were very happy with everything!!! We had a double room which was cosy and very clean. We liked the small balcony, the fridge that we could fill up with our drinks, the bathroom with a bath-tube (also shower-use) and the fruit basket in our room as a welcome gift. The staff was really friendly and when we needed some information about how to get to less visited places or to make some phone calls (not speaking Italian we had to ask the staff to call one particular shop and negotiate some prices on a lamp we wanted to buy). They were happy to help. We really felt most welcome there and would recommend this hotel to our best friends and family.

I have to say, Hotel Romae is superbly located; literally a 5 min walk from Termini station, which conveniently connects you to any point in the city.

Nearby there's a supermarket, a pharmacy and most importantly, although the hotel is near to the main station Termini, Via Palestro is a very quiet and tranquil street; just a few cars passing through the night, so we didn't at all feel disturbed (and our window looked out on the street, not yard-side).

The prices were very reasonable and fitting to every budget.

TV and phone in the room and downstairs, FREE INTERNET USE for the hotel guests.

The historic centre can be reached from the hotel by walking (25 min to Colosseo, the same for the Spanish steps, about 30 min to Piazza Navona or Campo dei Fiori) or you can choose to go by subway or bus, that can both be found at Termini station.

We really had an unforgettable vacation in Rome and won't hesitate to recommend Hotel Romae to friends. We will definitely return if we ever should go back to Rome.

Too many problems to recommend it

from LynK
We stayed here with a family of 5 (parents, 2 daughters ages 9 & 17 and their 81 yr. old grandmother) for 4 nights. I booked through Worldby.com many months in advance requesting the 2 room suite, which I thought we had confirmed. We arrived in Rome a day early and were given a room with 6 beds for the first night. I thought we'd be transferred to the suite on the next day. We were moved to a room with 5 beds not the suite, which was taken by someone else. Apparently they had overbooked and since we had booked through a company rather than directly we weren't the winners. I don't know why the screw up happened but they said in future you should book directly with the hotel and would get better service.

The rooms were pretty nice, but a bit too crowded for all 5 to stay together in the dormlike setting for 4 days. There was a fridge in the room. The bathrooms were modern, though the one in the 6 bed room was larger than the 5 bed room. There is no really comfortable lobby or gathering place. There is a small room where the computer (with free Internet access) is located, with a couch. There is a kind of an outdoor space but it is small and enclosed and not really like a garden. It didn't appeal to us to go sit there.

Being close to the bus and train station is a plus. The area seemed quite safe and one night I walked home from a restaurant in the area with only the 9 year old at about 10-11 pm and felt no threat. There is a reasonably priced laundry just down the street. Restaurants in the immediate area are not that special. We tried several because we'd just want to stay in the neighborhood after a long day of sightseeing rather than go out again to find recommended Rome restaurants, so I wished we'd been able to find something better close by.

We had problems with bad advice from the staff on two occasions regarding things we wanted to do in Rome. The main staffer who gave us the worst advice was a British young woman so it wasn't a language barrier. I think she just didn't know what she was talking about. The other main staffer we dealt with was a Russian guy. We were told that it would be reasonable to walk to one place we wanted to see but it was bad advice. It took much longer to walk there than she indicated it would. Another time I requested info about finding places to shop for souvenirs and find markets and we were steered to this big food market which took a lot of energy to get to but was not at all what we wanted to find. We also were steered to the main shopping streets with the expensive designer shops which wasn't what we wanted and I thought I was pretty clear with the hotel staffer about what I needed. Now I know that there are areas with markets like the ones in Florence (which we never got to as we spent all our time following this woman's directions) but on your first visit to a place you like to rely on the hotel staff to be able to guide you better. They also told me to use the computer (one computer, free Internet use) to look up information. That was OK to have available, but I thought the front desk should have been more helpful and although they were friendly it felt like they really didn't have a clue.

The elevator is quaint and very, very small and narrow. It has a cage so you can see out and runs between the stairs. Doesn't hold much luggage or many people at a time and my husband had to fit in sideways! But it worked all right and the 9 year old thought the elevator was really fun.

Overall, I wouldn't stay there again. We were steered to this hotel by close friends who always stay there when they are in Rome and have been several times. They are apparently quite happy with it and the price was reasonable. The problems we encountered just didn't leave us with a good feel.

Handy for transport links

from A TripAdvisor Member
My partner and I stayed at the Romae last weekend (13/14th May) and had no problems with this hotel.

The area is not the prettiest but we found it to be really handy for transport links as it is just 200yards from the mainline Termini station where you can get the train to the airport, and access metro links and buses across the city.

The hotel gave us 10% off vouchers towards meals at the restaurants on the other side of the street which we used (we were only there for a few nights and didn't want to travel far at night) so that suited us well. Breakfast is basic but we were not led to believe it would be anything otherwise.

The only down-side was the noise in the corridor; the room that we stayed in had no carpet in the corridor outside and the other guests could be heard coming back to their room at night. Unlike some other commentators on this site we had no problem with hot water - in the fact the shower was lovely.

We probably would stay here again just for the convenience factor and the location but admit that there are perhaps smarter places to stay if you shop around

Top Local Tips for Rome

Not outside St Peter's From St Peter's, don't bother with the Taxi rank. They tell you that they are not on a metered system and have laminated cards to "prove" that the extortionate rate they charge is the going rate. It isn't. Every other taxi we caught was fine (usually about half the price) and there is a Metro station very close to the Vatican where you can go anywhere for 1 Euro.

Shopping in Rome There are 3 important streets where you can find the most commun brands: Via del Corso, Cole di Rienzo and Via Appia Nuova. This last one is where you can find the cheaper stores, but not so many, because it's in the non-turistic side of the city, starting around the metro station San Giovanni. For the famous fashion brands you may go on the streets aroun Piazza di Spagna. Ther is an Outlet Mall, Castel Romano, approx 30 km from dowtown but I don't recommend it, it's not worth the trip, because just a few brands have resonable merchandise.

Gelato While Giolitti is an amazing Gelateria that is a must visit, San Crispino on Via della Panetteria 42 is amazing. It has remarkable flavors such as Ginger and Honey which are unique and amazing.
