Where do I start with this 'bad review'.... before booking 207 Inn I read reviews that if arriving any later than 20:30 you need to inform the hotel and you will be given a number to call the concierge who will then let you in. A week before the trip I emailed 207 Inn to inform them we would be arriving late (a week before thought it would be fresh in their mind... NO) so was given a number to call once we arrive at 1am. Arrived promptly at 1am as no delays. Me and my friend both females and 25 years old, on the streets of Rome trying to contact the number we were given for a good hour with locals passing by to help with no luck! Seems it was just a voicemail and the phone had not been transferred to the concierge, great! We had only one choice but to walk around the streets of Rome to find another hotel! On finding another hotel after being turned down by many we had to pay for basically half a night as didn't get settled in a room till 3:30am The next sunny morning we headed over to 207 Inn to be greeted by a Thai/Italian gentleman (I use that phrase loosely) who did not care about our situation, what a lovely start. We were told on check out we would get our refund for the night we didn't get and be able to speak with the manager. We were also informed by another receptionist, female/Italian that we would get out money on check out, yet did we know this was a big fat lie! So hello check out... we were messed around laughed at by the female receptionist and told it's not their problem they're just a receptionist, blimey if only I could say that (yes I am a receptionist). Both receptionists insisted we were not told we would get our money on check out (love when someone lies to your face) after half an hour of arguing we were just told to email lastminute.com for our refund so we look forward to a refund in roughly 4 months when it should have been sorted that day! Whoever the 'ghost' manager is as we never met them, good luck with 207 Inn and with receptionists like that, shambles!
The room was very small but we knew this in advance and it suited our needs. The Little balcony was super Breakfast is served on a tray in the room and its a bit of a lottery. One day the toast and butter were missing, another the criossants, then the bread. The toilet was downright dangerous with the seat sitting loosely and falling off at the slightest movement and the shower sent water in all directions. The air conditioning unit was perfect. Easy to adjust and quiet. In the area round about there are a multitude of small restaurants and bars.
The room had a good size and the bed was very comfortable. It was great that we were able to open the window up wide to let fresh air in in the night, even though there were a lot of noise from the street - one morning we were woken at 4 in the morning because the street vendors in the street were arguing very loudly and honking their car horn - but this is of course not the inns fault, but more due to its central location. We were able to walk to both the Vatican state and tourist/historical sites such as pantheon, trevi fountain, the Spanish stairs and also it was very close to shops to buy not too expensive clothing at. Also close to great restaurants. The breakfast was way to small - you could order one item from a list of croissants with one selection of white bread with some sausage and cheese, and a cup of coffee/juice on the side. All days we ended up going out to get more breakfast - maybe it would be better if you could choose both bread AND a croissant, I don't know, but it was not enough for either of us.
we stayed in this converted apartment to b&b. for 4 nights. had our reservation not been part of a plan, we would have checked out the next day. good points: charming and helpful receptionist (on duty 13-20) and helpful house person who delivers breakfast and cleans the rooms. proximity to the vatican. price. negative points: high noise level; no cover on the duvet; no public places which is why a quite good breakfast is delivered to your room; rooms very small and furniture very minimal and basic. dodgy neighbourhood although taxis are easily available. if you just need a place to sleep this is good value but it is not a place where one relaxes.
It is still a great time in 207 inn. Just perfect for the price, besides it is in an impulsiv perfect area. Few steps to good local restorants, Cafés. We are haveing what we ecpect. If you would like to drop yourself in the real Roman life it is My offer!
We traveled here in late August and stayed for 4 nights, on arrival to the hotel we had to carry our luggage upstairs as the lift only fits 2-3 people as it is very small. The reception desk is tiny and there is only one girl who works it for a few hours during the day after a certain time there is no reception available. When booking i had requested a room with a balcony which i did not receive, our room was right next to reception, the room didn't even have a room number on the door! You receive 3 keys, 1 to the main door, 1 to reception area on 1st floor and a key for your room, as our room was right outside the reception area we spent most of our night listening to the door constantly bang with people coming in and out. The room itself was nothing at all like the pictures, beds were basic, bedding wasn't the cleanest, tiny shower (im 5ft3 and i found it difficult to use the shower). The guys who delivery the breakfast are lovely! Basically you get what you paid for with this hotel just don't be fooled by the website! The hotel is minutes away from the Vatican and St Peter's, there is also a metro station a few minutes away which is handy!
Regarding of the room: Our room 104 was clean, with conditioner with remote control, washroom with a shower, towels, shampoo, shower gel, soap. In the room and washroom big windows which can be open wide. On the wall small flat screen TV with remote control. However I didn't find English channels - all channels I checked (and there was plenty of them) was in Italian, excluding one or two music channels, which had content with some English songs. Maybe there was channel in English, but I didn't find it. Clean nice corridor with the doors to the rooms, table at the end with 2 soft comfy chairs, corner to the left and 2 more rooms. We was in one of those rooms. I had no internet connection there. To have a connection I needed to go out of the room. I had a good connection while sitting behind that table in the corridor. Regarding of the service: Good experience of interacting with hotel's staff. We asked for breakfast in 8am - there was a breakfast at 8am, no problem. But day previous to the breakfast we needed to choose from the list what we can get at the breakfast. There was a list with 3 categories - 'Coffees', 'Pastries and Foods' and 'Juices and Drinks' - and you can chose only 1 from each category, per person. For example 1 person can have Espresso but can't have tea or Coffee Americano, or 1 plain croissant but no cheese or bread. Bunch of another types of croissants for some reason have been crossed out and excluded from the list. I chose 'Toasted bread with butter and jam' and I got pack of 2 or 3 crackers-type dry bread, separately 1 small package of jam and separately 1 small package of butter. So it was not like toasted bread which you can have for example in cafeteria. Regarding of check-in after 8:30pm (20:30): We had a PROBLEM. Which was a big surprise for us. There was 3 people - me, my wife and her elderly mother. Because we had traveled through different countries, we looked for flights with cheaper prices and our arrival in Rome was at late evening. Including travel with Express bus shuttle from Fiumicino Airport, we arrived to the door of the hotel around 9:30 pm. Knowing about our late arrival and about hotel's 20 Euro penalty for check-in after 8:30pm, and that there is actually no check-in after that time (which is really strange at least), we have INFORMED staff by calling few days before arrival and by sending email one day before, expecting that there would be someone who at least will open the door for us. NO ONE from the staff was in the hotel at the time when we arrived. We waited for about 15-20 minutes pushing bell button at the door with no result. We had phones, but who wants to call and pay for roaming connection? (We are from Canada). Ok, I have VoIP app, so I can call using Internet. But there is no Internet connection. There is a payphone nearby, but it was broken. On the first floor of the building there is McDonald, which have WiFi connection, but you need to register at their website first, with your phone number or credit card number. At the moment when I tried to regist to get a WiFi connection from McDonald's, someone from the hotel's residents (not hotel's staff) has opened doors for us. Thank you. I was able to call to hotel's phone number using hotel's telephone and to talk with someone, who said something about 'two minutes' etc. I understood that he would be in two minutes. We waited for 10 minutes. Then I called again and said that we are waiting in the hotel. That person has answered that he thought that we just arrived at the airport and calling about that, and he said that when we will be at the door, just call and he will be in a few minutes. (And to whom we called days before and send an email?) I said that we are waiting inside. Luckily our key was at the staff table and we was able to get into the room. At the end, hotel's staff, which I spoke with on the phone, has arrived at the hotel 2 hrs (11:30pm) after we was at the hotel's door (at 9:30pm). He said that he lives nearby, minutes from the hotel. Maybe there was some misunderstanding when I spoke with him on the phone and that person said he was sorry for not being at the hotel etc. But we informed about our late arrival few days before and we send an email. So we was expecting that someone from the hotel's staff will open the door. That didn't happen. 'You needed to call to hotel's phone when you have arrived' - I have been told by hotel's staff at that night. Sorry but, first, we are not from Italy, so we would need to pay for roaming? And next - this is NOT mentioned anywhere on the official hotel's website, in the email which we have received after the registration and on the hotel's page at the Expedia website, where we booked the hotel. So you need to figure out it by yourself. That's your problem if you didn't know that. You are responsible, not the hotel's staff, which you paid for the service and the hotel. That's was a surprise for us. And after this type of service we needed to pay 20 Euros for late check-in after 8:30pm. Everything else was Ok. p.s. Also don't forget you will need to pay additionally TOURIST TAX 3.50 Euro per night per person in this type of hotels (Bed and breakfasts). That's not included in the hotel's price.
