The hotel was perfect for our needs as we had to go to the UK Visa & Immigration office. We found the staff very friendly, the room was clean and spacious. The bed and pillows were comfortable. Breakfast was enough, but no hot food was served. We found the area between the hotel and Termini station a bit dodgy. The only critisism we have: we were supplied only one bidet towel (for 2 guests) and the water in the shower didn't drain away whilst showering.

The staff at this hotel was kind and very helpful. Having said that, the hotel itself needs a cleaning from the floor to the rafters. Our group encountered three rooms with bugs either in the bed itself or in the room. Different types of bugs. Just disgusting. The staff moved our rooms each time, but that didn't make any of us feel any calmer about sleeping there for the night. The neighborhood is terrible. It is steps away from a soup kitchen for the homeless and the piazza that faces the hotel is filled with the homeless sleeping on benches. The piazza is covered in litter. (I'm from NY - I get that the sidewalks will be messy/dirty) but this was disgusting. Our group did not feel safe enough to go out at night, unless we were in larger groups. The poor begged for money, tried to reach out and touch some of us as we passed by and I personally saw one man repeatedly come to the hotel main entrance and beg the desk clerk for something to eat/money. VERY disappointed in this place.

Hotel Ateneo is conveniently located near the train station, La Sapienza University, and the Centro Congressi Frentani. For business in this area, the location is great, but it is not conveniently sited for the sight-seeing tourist. Restaurants in the surrounding neighborhood are good quality and moderately priced. Rooms are spacious, quiet, and many have pleasant views of the garden courtyard. The furniture in the large common areas is also very comfortable; however, the matrtesses on the beds are extraordinarily firm, bordering on uncomfortable. While breakfast is about average in quality and the bar is poorly stocked, the staff are gracious, friendly, and helpful.

We reached Rome for a three nights trip . Our agent had booked us in BW Tora Vergatta Hotel , in Rome . But when we reached there by taxi , we realised that hotel was way too far off from the city ? In fact we paid 68 Euros from Train station in Rome to the hotel . Immediately we decided to change the hotel n on net we booked Anteneo Garden Palace Hotel . Wonderful staff , very comfortable room , AC, fantastic breakfast . Walking distance from The Rome train terminal , Metro and Other places of interest . Would recommend it to anyone who visit Rome for site seeing purposes . We had a wonderful stay here .

Really loved the main floor terrace, we sat out there at night and it was lovely. We loved we had a balcony that had flowering gardenias. Rooms were nice enough and had small refrigerator. Closets were lite and well designed. There are restaurants across and down the street and also a small convenience store as well. Lobby is really pretty. Breakfast was nice just wish there were cooked scrambled eggs instead of just hard boiled eggs.

The Hotel is quite classy, and with a distinct retro-luxury mood. The room was incredibly big, especially the very high ceiling was impressive, making you feel like you're sleeping in an aristocratic "palazzo". A very nice touch is the terrace where you have breakfast, which is on the rooftop. giving a nice view outside; a pretty nice way to start a working day. All considered, is highly recommended.

I was here with a bunch of high school students on a European Tour but I would stay here again! The staff were very nice, good wifi, yummy breakfast, and a really cool courtyard where I would sit with my husband after a day of running the roads of Rome! The hotel is very close to the train station and the Cité Universitaire! (Sorry for the French). The rooms were cozy and well equiped.

The hotel was really nice. Offered a free breakfast which was really nice and plenty to choose from. Our room opened up onto a courtyard which was nice. The beds were comfortable also. Would recommend.

Although brief, my family & I had a great stay here. The front desk was polite and helpful, the quadruple room was spacious with a walk out to their courtyard, and the location was perfect for walking to/from the train station. Third visit to Rome, and this has been my favorite hotel thus far!

Generaly the hotel was good. The staff was "cold" . The internet did not exit in the room .....they wtote me at the reservation " with free high-speed Internet access"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We heared the voices from the tratoria across the street all night .
