The BEST WESTERN Hotel Astrid is a historical building in the Flaminio district, close to the Auditorium Parco della Musica and Piazza del Popolo. We are close to the Vatican and the heart of Rome. From the terrace, our hotel offers an unforgettable view of the Tiber, the dome of St. Peter and the centre. There are many good reasons to stay at the BEST WESTERN Hotel Astrid. Our hotel is run by a family of hoteliers who care about the professionalism of its employees. We offer a breakfast room with a charming terrace overlooking the Tiber and a view with the splendid dome of St. Peter at the horizon. The hotel is a wonderful neoclassical building, close to the city centre and an excellent starting point to reach the Vatican and the heart of the town. The guest rooms, just renovated, are equipped with Wi-Fi and LCD television. There is also a garage, on request, nearby. 10% national VAT included. Local city fee is 4 EUR per night per person over 10 years old. The additional fee is excluded and it will be paid directly at the hotel.

Would go there again

We actually stayed there two times (had a break in-between because we went to another town for a week). During the first time we went all over town to check for a cheaper place in Rome but a lot of the ¨Hostels¨ and ¨Hotels¨ and BnB´s are in some apartment buildings or in some very shabby looking neighborhoods. At the Astrid Hotel it was clean, we had comfort (first time smaller room with shower, second time bigger room with bath tub) and both was better than what we found for a little cheaper or even more expensive places elsewhere. The breakfast is included and very good (buffet style, meats, cheeses, breads & cakes, hard boiled eggs, cereals, fruits, coffee, tea juice etc - you can also ask for eggs done in a different way and for cappuccino instead of coffee). Location was great as well - about 15 minutes walk from the downtown( Piazza del Popolo) (, or you can also take a Tram (Number 2, right outside of the Flaminio Metro Station - get out at ¨Ankara¨ Station - 3 Stops- for Astrid Hotel). (Metro Tickets cost 1.50 Euro, you can use the same ticket on the tram within 100 min, but make sure to stamp it again on the yellow machines inside the tram - same goes in return, ticket bought on the tram can be used in the metro!) We also walked along the river to the Vatican, takes a little longer but very beautiful walk and lot´s of other things to see on the way.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

For the people (like us) who where on a budget. - Rome is very expensive - eating and drinking out, even snacking at the Pizza Imbiss can cost a lot. There is a Store called ¨Spar¨ (Sign looks like a green pine-tree in a circle with red writing underneath it). You can buy bread, cheese etc there, the bakery has REALLY tasty cheese & tomato sauce bread/pizza for 1/3rd of the outside prize. They also sell wine etc. (We used the Store that is near the Travi Fountain area, but if you ask around, there might be a closer one). There is a fridge inside the Astrid Hotel room! Also, no need to buy bottled water. All over Rome you have little water fountains/spits with drinkable water - just fill up your water bottle there!

BEWARE: Posted picture is not of this hotel

Beware that the posted picture of the glamorous large pinkish building is not the picture of this hotel. It is the picture of a Rome monument that is about 3 miles away from this hotel. The rooms are the smallest that I have ever stayed at during my 30 years of international travel. The shower is 2 feet by 2 feet and there is no counter space for your toiletries. Breakfast is average and the location is about a 30 minute walk from the closest metro station. You can, however, take a tram a few blocks away from the hotel that would take you to the metro station.

Hotel pictures are inaccurate and deceiving

Hotel Astrid occupies two floors in a larger building. Other floors are occupied by various offices and companies. The hotel rooms are the tiniest I have ever seen. We got a room with a queen size bed. The room was so tiny that there was literally only one foot of space between the bed and the walls on either side of the bed. The bathroom, while clean, is very old and could use some renovation. The staff was friendly but they can only barely communicate in broken English. By U.S. standards, this hotel is a 1 star hotel and by European standards, it is a 2 star hotel. It is by no means whatsoever a 3 star hotel as advertised online. The breakfast room is about 10 feet by 10 feet and gets totally packed by as few as a dozen guests and breakfast itself quite basic and disappointing. We regret our selection of Hotel Astrid which we picked based on the misleading pictures on this site.

Excellent Hotel, great price

We just returned from a week at the Astrid. While it is a little ways out from the main tourist areas, it is just fantastic. The staff all spoke perfect English and were extremely helpful. The rooms are very nice by European standards and the beds were comfortable. The free minibar was a nice touch and the free wi-fi made calling home really easy. A really nice traditional Roman breakfast was included on the 5th floor every morning with breads, cereal, meats, etc... About a block away is a feeder train to the Rome metro system that runs by every 5 minutes or so. Just a few stops and you are at Rome's North Gate, the Piazza del Popolo, which has fantastic shopping and places to eat. From there you can take the Flaminio Metro stop to anywhere you want to go in Rome. Very easy. While there are many hotels close to tourist areas, I appreciated the Astrid location because it is in a really nice area with lots of locals, which means good places to eat. Another bonus for Americans is the Astrid is owned by Best Western, which means you get the Best Western cancellation policy. All they need is 24 hours notice. Most European hotels charge an extra 10% or more for the option to cancel and get your money back if you have to. That does away with the cost of travel insurance coverage in the event of having to cancel. I would definitely stay at the Astrid again. Especially because: 1. Very friendly, helpful staff. 2. Clean room, standard European size. 3. Free wifi and free breakfast and minibar. 4. Location 5. Price.
