Historical Traveller Reviews of San Remo Hotel
overbooking and an arrogant stafffrom A TripAdvisor Member
When I followd the staff and checked in at another building, I found it was another hotel, Giada, located 50m away from the San Remo Hotel. I realized that the San Remo Hotel overbooked rooms and the staff of the hotel tried to deceive me! So I returned to the San Remo Hotel and complained of overbooking. But to my surprise the staff didn't apologize to me for his lies and even insisted that the Giada and the San Remo were identical. After all I couldn't help staying one night at the Giada which was the worst hotel I had experienced.
The next day I moved to the San Remo Hotel spoiling the tour schedule in Rome. In my opinion the room of the hotel was mediocre and the breakfast was poor. Although I received a perfunctory apology from a manager of the San Remo Hotel, the staff who tried to deceive me never did apologize to me until I left the hotel.
Please be careful of overbooking and watch out for an arrogant staff when you use this hotel.
Disappointed with San Remo Hotelfrom GI47
Room was small, barely adequate.
Bathroom was an absolute disgrace... the smallest shower I have ever seen... smaller than a cruise ship's...
One night, there was no heat, no hot water... staff was indifferent, at best...
On plus side... Excellent location... three minute walk to Stazione Termini, main train station... many buses for travel in Rome and trains for travel throughout Italy are within walking distance...
An up to date opinionfrom Janet87
Very central hotelfrom Ann1ebelle
Doubt if we'd stay there again, as there are so many hotels of this age and type in that area to choose from, but it WAS very central for everything and reasonably clean and comfortable. Shame about the wallpaper (and the curtains were PLASTIC, the bedspread 1950's NYLON!)
pleasant surprise at san remofrom A TripAdvisor Member
all rooms were spotlessly clean and had recently been refurbished .
my room , 314 , was very spacious.
hotel staff were very friendly and only critisim was that safety deposit boxes were not in the room but were down at reception , but they were free of charge .
I found the area around the hotel to be safe and handy for bars , buses and the metro and was within walking distance of palatine hill . I
would stay there again.
beware of pick pockets on buses !!!!
We found it OKfrom A TripAdvisor Member
However, we found the San Remo comfortable enough, the beds were a bit hard though.
We would stay there again.
Watch your belongingsfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The hotel took no responsibility for our missing posessions, and denied that any of their employees could have possibly stolen our stuff, or had any master key to the rooms for that matter (how are the rooms cleaned, etc., if no master keys exist?). The hotel just told us to file a report with the police.
We promptly checked out, and found a much nicer hotel nearby. This hotel, Hotel Diana, had rooms that were twice as big and had electronic room keys (as opposed to standard keys like the San Remo). Believe it or not, this hotel cost us about the same for the nights we were staying.
San Remo - comfortable place to rest our weary feet!!from A TripAdvisor Member
Excellent Valuefrom moween
Our room was very clean and comfortable, with excellent double glazing which silenced all the traffic noise. The air-conditioning system was effective and doubled up as heating. The bathroom was perfectly functional and the maid service excellent, with fresh supplies of toiletries daily. The breakfast buffet offered cereals, juices, fruit salad, yoghurts, cheese, ham and bread rolls, cake and croisants as well as tea and coffee. Staff were efficient, helpful and reception staff spoke good English, offering maps and advice on buses and metro stops.
We found a couple of decent restaurants just around the corner, also recommended by reception. It's possible to walk from this hotel as far as the Vatican, (with comfortable shoes!), but buses and metro very conveniently nearby. Overall, although not luxurious, this hotel is comfortable, safe, and an ideal choice for a budget break, and I would recommend it. If arriving by Ryanair at Ciampino airport late at night, recommend booking a car pick-up, we used ----, good price and hassle-free.
Very happy with the San Remofrom KeithSeattle_WA
Top Local Tips for Rome
Cafes resturants have a ripp off deal going first ASK if they have a "cover charge" (they don't tell you until you get a bill - anywhere from $2-6) SECOND - ask if they charge for BREAD (they'll bring it up front - and you won't know you're getting charge $ 1-4 until you get the bill) THIRD - ask for FREE water (tap and probabaly not cold) or they will just bring you botteled water and you won't know you're paying $ 1-4 per bottle until you get the bill)
on foot don't be afraid to get around Rome on your own two feet. We didn't use public transport once and we saw everything from Piazza San Pietro, Galleria Borghese and everything in between! We heard that Rome does have an excellent public transport system but finding our way around town was part of the fun, and really rewarding it was too! A very good street map was provided by our hotel (San Remo) and yes, you do get lost trying to find attractions, but discover hidden treasures on the way. Our only warning is be very wary when you cross a pedestrian crossing, a piazza, heck, even the tiniest street. Those vespas get everywhere, and we're sure they've been told by the vespa king to 'Kill, kill, kill!'
look after yourself Wear comfy shoes and take care of personal possesions
