Awesome location but old hotel

I stayed in this hotel for 2 nights, It works if you want a well located place to stay, it's only a 8 minute walk to the Metro Station Barberini. So you can travel anywhere in Rome using the metro. The Trevi Fountain is a 15 minute walk. The hotel is really old and I stayed in a very small room, I guess it's ok just for 2 nights not for more time. Next time I'll stay near the Metro. Breakfast was ok and the staff was really nice. 2 doors from the hotel you can find a nice restaurant

2 doors from the entrance there is this nice restaurant. Nice place with great food and fair prices for being in Rome. Eating in Rome isn't cheap. You can find 4 restaurants really close to the hotel and also Hard Rock Cafe Rome it's only 12 minutes from the hotel

budget

good location but that is probably the only good thing The bar was closed and no food was available which was one of the reasons I wanted to stay here The rooms are old and need to be re styled bathrooms are old and a little damp could be cleaner and the shower needs completely overhauled Staff were ok but nothing to write home about overall very disappointed

Roma

The location was excellent. Close to everything and away from the crowds. Most of the staff was nice and helpful. But breakfast was not very good. The hotel is very outdated. It needs to be remodeled. The beds were uncomfortable. The bathroom was newer and clean. The rooms had rotary phones that didn't work. I tried using a phone card to call home but it didn't work. I was charged 3.70 euros for it. When I told the front desk man that I shouldn't have to pay for it. He reacted angrily and I endend up paying. They need to update their phones and inform guests that you can't call with a phone card. It was not a good end to my trip. We won't be staying there again.

My reservation was transferred to a worse hotel

When I got to the hotel tired, I was told that my room reservation had to be transferred to another hotel because their water pipe broke. They transferred me to an ugly hotel which I didn't like. Then, they did not inform me that I had to come back the next day for my 2nd night reservation which wasted my time to pack my stuff unexpectedly. Lastly, the hotel itself - I've been to better 3-star hotels, wouldn't recommend this one.

Great budget find for short stay

I found my room at the King Hotel to be large but very outdated - everything from the wallpaper to the bathroom. The bed and pillows were fortunately very comfortable and the room a decent size. They also have free wi-fi, satelite TV (get more than just CNN int'l for english channels) and breakfast. The breakfast was definitely slim (no fruit, just breads/baked goods, some meat, cheese and coffee) but good enough to grab something. The location was great right near the Spanish steps and the Barberini metro stop. The neighborhood was also decent. I wouldn't have wanted to be there more than a day or two but this will definitely do for a short stay on a budget.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

You can take the local FR1 train from the airport to the city for almost half the price of the Termini Express train. You have to make a connection at the FR1's Ostiense station for the metro's Pyramide stop. It is 8 euro for the train ticket and the metro is 1 euro for 90 minutes of use. The metro is easy to use but doesn't serve some areas of the city. The Barberini station is very close to the hotel. Taxi fares can add up depending on how far you go (automatic ~3 euro charge just for getting in the taxi) so I would walk or use the metro when possible.

Vacation to Rome, Italy

The hotel is located about 1.5 blocks from the Spanish steps; thus, it is in an excellent location for using the underground subway system. The staff were polite and helpful as to information regarding museums, public transportation, and providing the electrical adapter for cords built for American outlets. The hotel provides free and reliable wireless internet service. I also enjoyed the May 2010 weather on the quiet, covered outdoor patio. The free breakfast included tasty cold-cut meats, grapefruit and orange juice, breads and butter, and a selection of teas and coffee. The hotel is quiet at night; thus, no problem sleeping after all the tourist activity. Overall, I would stay at this hotel again. Minor gripes: (1) my room did not have sufficient lighting for reading comfortably and (2) I thought the bed sheets were a little coarse.

No problems. Good location

Good "no frills" option for the budget-minded traveler. Staff was friendly. Hotel was fairly quiet and felt safe. Room was small, but comparable to most hotels in the area. Clean room but outdated furniture and decor. Bed could be much better, but you don't go to Rome to sleep in, right??? One of the best parts of this hotel is the location. Easy access from Barberini station (subway) and very short walk to Spanish Steps and Trevi Fountain. Plenty of restaurants and nightlife available in walking distance.
