Great location

For second time I have enjoyed staying at the Hotel Universo. From the location to the staff to the general comfort, the hotel was very good. I would stay there again on a future trip.

Good Hotel

Nice place to stay near Termini. Very clean and comfortable. But make sure you get a room in the back of the hotel. We originally were given a room in the front, above the entrance. The street noise was unbearable so we asked to be moved. The hotel staff was able to give us a room near the back of the hotel and it was perfectly quiet there.

Wonderful stay in Rome

The hotel was really very comfortable, and the king sized bed was amazing! Lots of pillows. The only issue we had at all was a sewage smell coming from a drain in the bathroom, and the staff didn't offer to do much about it. However, the staff was extremely friendly and helpful in all other areas. The location was very good, within 5 minutes of the train station.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Get the Green Line tour bus if you have a family. It is about 96 Euro for 48 hours and it really helped ease the traveling. We just hopped on and off anytime we wanted at all the major stops. When we got tired and it started raining one day, we rode the double decker for an hour and took a little nap.

not four star

definately not a 4 star hotel. older, somewhat run down lobby. new renovation of the room with cheap plastic and glass. bathroom fittings are lose and the tissue holder fell off the wall. bad TV. no safe in room. arrived at 10am but checkin is 2pm. staff made no effort to get us in the room early. in fact, they had an attitude when asked. have stayed at better, less expensive hotels in the area. But, breakfast was very good and close to train. would not go back.

OK - Good location

The location of this hotel was pretty good..... The hotel itself was good but not exceptional..... Put this in a catagory that "I would stay again" for the value. The room was clean and comfortable, but nothing special. Would recommend with caveats...

Overall decent hotel experience

Excellent location near Roma Termini station which is a five minute walk away. The area is full of hotels and restaurants, so most people you meet will be travellers of some sort.

Good Value + Great Location

The reviews i read prior to trip were pretty much on target. The location to Rome's Termini was great and that was one of our requirements. Staff, especially the Bell Hop went above and beyond during both of our stays with helpful information. We stayed there twice during a visit with relatives in Northern Italy and used railways to and from. Excellent breakfast spread and dinner was good and very elegant.

Comfort and convenience

This hotel was just a short walk from the Rome Termini and an enjoyable walk to almost everything we wanted to see in Rome from the Trevi Fountain to the Forum. I can't say enough about the convenience. On the day of our departure for home at 5 AM, the staff made sure there was coffee and pastry so we didn't have to travel hungry. I would certainly recommend this hotel to all Rome travelers. The staff was exceptional. Steve J
