The cheapest we could find on a Friday night...good value, but nothing special

My boyfriend and I spent our last night in Rome at the Athena because the hotel we had stayed at the night before (Diplomatic Hotel) near the Vatican was triple the price, and we just couldn't afford it. The closest metro stop is Policlinico, and it was a bit of a walk (20 minutes) to the hotel, but a very straight shot. We would not stay there again unless we were in a similar situation of not wanting to pay $300 for our last night in Rome knowing that we had to be out the door on the way to the airport at 6 AM. The hotel is in a university zone, so there is a decent selection of eateries and bars. The hotel staff was fantastic. Both the male receptionists that we dealt with were exceedingly hospitable, giving us recommendations on where to eat and setting up a taxi to take us to the airport. In the morning he even gave us yogurt and bread to go since we left before breakfast started. Oh, and five minutes after getting in bed, the entire bed fell to the floor. It's was pretty comfortable after that, and the staff made know fuss about it. I got the impression it wasn't the first time a bed had collapsed!

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

There are set prices for taxis to the airport. A taxi is a little more expensive than public transportation when you are two people; when you are three, it's definitely cheaper to take a taxi than to take the metro and then the train. And of course, a taxi is much more convenient!

Avoid this one!

Although reservation was made over six months in advance, the assigned room was tiny at 6 X 9 feet with windows opening into an elevator shaft. Just big enough for an Army style cot, small refrig and a tiny TV. Bathroom was about 6 X 3. Desk person handed me a bottle of wine at check in and mumbled something about small room. The floor was dirty. I would not stay in this hotel again or recommend it.

Not Bad For $$$

Usually stay at "All Inclusives." We knew this would be on the outskirts of Rome and by the University. We knew the rooms would not be the kinds we are used to staying in. We are "Smokers" and knew we would need a balcony. We got our room with balcony overlooking the main Via. Never had a problem,even though the bathroom is small and of course TV is only in Italian. The STAFF is OUTSTANDING!!(Very Helpful!)Metro/Termini/Rome is very close. We saved enough on room that we splurged on taking TAXI'S everywhere.(Example: 70 Euros round trip to Trevi Fountain)People and Students in the area are very friendly and helpful. If you want to spend ALOT of money just to stay in Rome,there are many places. If you want to have an ample room at the end of a LONG DAY(with very hot water and great pressure)and have $$$ to do more shopping and sight seeing;stay at "THE ATHENA." We thought we would have our doubts when we first saw it;those never happened on our 4 night stay.

Just the Job

Ok so I picked this hotel after about 2 hours of looking online for something not to cheap and dingy, close to the city centre in Rome and not too expensive. On arrival to termini station we got a cab to the hotel, €8 so not too bad, however the hotel is only 6/7 minutes walk from the bologna blue line metro stop (handy to get downtown/Vatican/coliseum) The taxi driver stopped as he turned around the corner of this one way street, got out of the cab and pointed at the building in front of us,'athena' he says, no more looking like a hotel than a cat looks like a dog! Anyway up we go to the door and it turns out the hotel doubles as an apartment block, we got in up to reception which is on the first floor and got a big hello from the guy behind the desk. He gave us all the info regarding breakfast times, our keys and directions to where we would get a late night feed(it was 10.30 at this stage) The room was big, a double and a single bed, perfectly made, towels and ac, TV and fridge and a decent en suite, spotlessly clean also. I cannot fault this place, if you are heading to Rome for a 3 day action packed tourist weekend to see all the sights, this place is perfect, I mean it! If you are going for a romantic 2 day getaway you may want to pick somewhere else, it's no 4/5 star in that market. The staff are friendly and very knowledgeable, they will give all the usual stuff, but then spend a few minutes explaining where and how to get to where you want to go, very helpful indeed Overall - 3 day tourist break ***** Location - **** Staff - *****
