Fine and dandy!

Hotel cannot be faulted for what you pay for it. Old school feel and excellent location make this a no brainer. The hotel is respectable, honest and clean, room was big and bathroom everything it should be. Small breakfast/dining area only added to the experience! Recommended for travellers on a budget but with hint of luxury.

Huge Irish Bar Fanny O'Brien's just around the corner in Via Nazionale is great for food, drink and multi sports coverage - if you're into that thing!

Great location!

Nice hotel, looks rough from the outside but once you get inside it's very nice. Staff was friendly and helpful and it was easy to get to the main tourist attractions, most were within walking distance the only taxi we needed was to Vatican and it was a 10 minute drive. Would definitely stay there again if I ever go back.

when you exit the hotel take a left, at the very next corner take another left to a very small alley and the restaurant in the corner is excellent! (Sorry forgot the name of it but it was a nice sit down pizzeria).

Good budget friendly hotel

The location was very well/centrally located to all of the sightseeing. The WiFi worked only in the lobby and was a 4/10 at it's best. The free breakfast was perfect and the room was cleaned well. Elevator cost is 0.10 cents (Euro) per use.

a week in Rome eith my family

It was a good stay in this hotel because the hotel's facilities were good and the staff was so kind. On the other hand the hotel is situated so close to the city centre (Colosseo, Traianus Forum, Fontana Trevi and so on..) and the public transport is also excellent near the hotel. Furthermore there are many good restaurantes, bars and shops in the area.

Good value in a great location

The hotel is located in a great part of rome (easy walking distance to most main sights). As with most 3 star places in Italy, it is a relatively basic room, but has the important stuff. Can be a bit loud at times, but overall a good stay.

City Break

Perfect for seeing all the sights of Rome which were mainly walkable from the hotel. Excellent value but not the best 5 star hotel but it did everything and more it promised for 3 star with very helpful and friendly staff and very much better than similar hotels stayed in previously. It is off the main road, quiet but is in an interesting neighbourhood with local cafes etc. We reccommend that visitors buy the Omnia Pass ahead of visit for cost and to eliminate queueing and disappointment to see the top attractions. Bus Shuttle from airport very good and near to the hotel. Tea making in the room would have been nice but coffee and the breakfast (very well served and sufficient continental variety) room were not far away. Free drinks and snacks every evening were well appreciated before setting off for the evening at a restaurant!

Clean, convenient, walking distance to everything!

We were mostly pleased with our hotel stay at the Caravaggio Hotel in Rome. From Termini, the hotel is only a few short blocks away, definitely walking distance if your bags have wheels. The hotel staff were professional and pleasant. We had a room overlooking the street and the size while on the small side was not cramped for the two of us. I have stayed in 5-star hotels that had smaller rooms. The WiFi was free which I was to learn was a rarity in Italy, so appreciate even more now! The rooms were very clean. The continental breakfast, including homemade cappuccino was included, which was nice to start the day off with juice and coffee and bread, cheese, ham, cereals, etc... We did start training in advance of our trip, but will say that for us, in our mid-50s, everything in Rome was within walking distance. The hotel is also very close to the Metro stop just two short blocks away, the metro is very safe and easy to use and will get you easily to most of Rome's major attractions. The only disappointments with the hotel were the inadequacy of the air conditioning in our room for the heat of the season, it was in the 90-100 degree range each day we were there. The staff did try to accommodate us to clean the A/C filter, and brought us a fan that made it very comfortable. They offered to move us to another room, but we were very satisfied with the room otherwise. The shower that others complain of, was more than adequate with good water pressure and adequate supply of hot water. No tubs. Elevator, quaint, but functional, and often we chose to use the stairs, but only out of personal preference. I would most likely stay at Caravggio again, because of convenience and price!

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

There is a great mini-market one and 1/2 blocks down on Via Milano, in between Palermo and Nazionale, run by a very sweet, English speaking gentleman from Bangladesh. Here you can purchase fresh fruit and juices as well as water, wine, prosecco, etc...and various soaps, etc... At a fraction of the price of what they sell for from the street vendors. We frequented this market for our traveling water supplies and saved considerable money. It was usually on the way anywhere we wanted to o and they were open late in the evening (11:00 or later) if we wanted to pick up supplies for the following day.

Loved This Hotel

The hotel is located only a few blocks from the colosseum. We split the city into quadrants and walked a different one each day. The breadkfast and the girls doing the serving and cleanup there were very good and a pleasure to talk to. The front desk was always helpful with information on how to get around the cityand what sites to see. The Happy Hour each night with free wine was a good way to unwind and gatter good tips from fellow travelers. The apples at the front desk were also a welcome delite during the afternoon walks in the hot Rome summer heat. It would have been nice to have a Television channel in English and the bed was a little on the hard side. I reccomend the ower installing a cheap foam pad to the top to make them softer.. Thjat would have made my stay a 5 star.

Tolerably decent

Being within blocks of the train station and the coliseum was a benefit for us. Otherwise it is a fairly unremarkable hotel. It was the cleanest hotel we stayed in while in Italy but if this is what passes for 3 stars in Italy I would hate to see what a one star hotel looks like.
