Best time

First time to Rome, the location of the Hotel was perfect. It was only a couple minute walk away from everything you want to see (minus Vatican City). The bus stop/ taxi stop is literally down the stairs and 50 feet away. The staff is extremely nice and will be happy to point you in the right direction. The only thing I wish they gave was FREE wifi but it was only 9 Euro for 24 hours so not too bad. The breakfast was nice but a little pricey. There is a bar just a minute walk away that serves very good food and drinks. I watched most of the world cup there. I would HIGHLY recommend this hotel to anyone that is traveling to Rome and wants to have an easy time.

If you aren't okay with walking 15-30 minutes to any of the BIG attractions there is a bus that you can get 24 hour hop on n off pass for 20 Euro a person. It also comes with an audio tour. It was very nice when I needed to get to the Vatican City.

Great location, nice facility

The location is fabulous, with a Roman arch outside the front door and the Forum/Campidoglioj just up the hill. The staff was excellent, the room was clean and the breakfast was good. Great view from our balcony. The room and the hotel were up to date. The Internet charge was expensive for 2014.

Trip of a Lifetime

Our goal in Rome was to see the Vatican and ancient Rome. The hotel is in walking distance of the Colosseum and the Palatine plus there is public transportation in front. The staff is very helpful with making transportation arrangements as needed. The hotel offers breakfast and there is a nice pub across the plaza at which you can order food and a church next door. Enjoyable stay.

Fantastic stay in Rome

Palazzo Al Velabro in Rome was a great hotel. The room was very spacious and clean. It included a kitchenette and dining area aw well as a comfortable bed room and bath. The staff were courteous and helpful. The breakfast was much better than the typical continental. My wife cannot eat gluten and the selection of cheeses and meats at breakfast was so welcome. There were also the typical pastries and tarts... the coffee was very good as well. I did not get a chance to use the gym as we were out sightseeing most of the time but it looked decent, clean with new equipment

Good Value for your money

The location is excellent - near Colosseum and Roman Forum. The room was clean overall but the carpet could use some steam cleaning. The staff was friendly. Recommended for family with kids.

PERFECT Location and HUGE rooms

This is a great hotel! It was a 5 minute walk to the Forum and the Capitoline Hill, 5 minutes to great food in Trastavere, and 10 minutes to the Colosseum. It's on an easy and direct bus line to the Vatican and really is the perfect place to start on any walking/exploration tour of the historic center. Beyond it's great location, the rooms were the largest I've ever stayed in while in Europe -- large suites even by American standards. There are two tiers of room pricing -- those that have been renovated and those that have not. We stayed in an older, non-renovated room, which had an interesting and cool 60s mod vibe. Next time I stay at this hotel, however, (and next time I'm in Rome, I will) I'll go for the more modernized rooms. Breakfast was always quick and simple, though good. The staff, both in the breakfast room and at the front desk were friendly and extremely helpful! It's all the little nice things that really start to add up, like when they provide umbrellas to borrow because it's raining and you don't have one. Very pleased with our stay there!

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Instead of walking the main road up to the Capitoline Hill and the great views of the Forum, if you take the small pedestrian street to the right as you exit the hotel, that circles behind the hotel, you'll get to the back stairs of the Capitoline Hill in about 3 minutes. That view over the Forum is the best in all of Rome!

Great location, friendly staff

The quality / price ratio is excellent with a very friendly and helpful team, good (and included) breakfast and a location in the old city of Rome, a few hundred meters away from Circus Maximus, Mont Palatino and Coloseum.

Great Hotel

We stayed here for four nights. Nice place for the money. The room was very clean and a nice size. It had a separate living area with sofa and kitchenette, and bedroom. The air conditioner worked great and plenty of water pressure in the shower although it was a bit narrow. The free breakfast was nice in the morning; pastries, fresh fruit, meat, cheeses, bread, cereal. It was about a 15 minute walk to the metro station Circo Massimo and 20 minute walk to the Colosseum. It was down a quiet street. Only two restaurants close by. There was a snack shop on the corner that sold water and soda for a reasonable price.

When in Rome- Stay at Velabro!

Dont judge a book by its cover! This place is extremely nice on the inside. Located only a few hundred yards of the Roman Ancient ruins like the Forum, Colesium, and Circus Maximus this place is a great value. Their staff Rocks! They were happy to arrange airport transfers and other taxi services also they are very knowledgeable regarding the best places to eat and visit. If you have a family of 4 this is a great value. Apartment type suites available. We would surely stay here again.
