Best Western Blu Hotel Roma4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
stayed here on a business trip recently and found the hotel very good even when only paying for a basic room. Staff understand English very well as well which is a massive bonus when you don't know any of there language. Very easy to get to and from the hotel with the transport they can arrange for you you, it will cost around 50 Euro from FCO airport and only takes around 30 - 60 minutes depending on traffic. The one down side but nothing major is this hotel is a distance from any of the attractions but only a short walk from the metro which will allow you to get to attractions without any issues.
I was at this hotel the last week of September. I returned home yesterday and already miss the nice people. By all means, this hotel is not a five-star property however, the room is big enough, has a balcony, and it is always clean. The housekeeping staff is very efficient and helpful. If you need extra supplies, you will be given what you ask for without question. There is a safe in the room however it is small. The front desk staff is amazing. No task is too big or too small. I was always greeted with a good morning and a good night as I left and entered the hotel. I always felt like I was the only guest there. The front desk employees helped me with photocopying, scanning documents, they allowed me to borrow and use supplies like scissors, glue, and stapler. They were very helpful. The breakfast was simple however you were never left hungry. It was the traditional Italian breakfast with pastries, cold cuts, and a variety of cheese. The American foods include yogurt, eggs, bacon, and morning sausage. There is also a variety of beverages including juice and coffees. If you do not want to use the self serve coffee machine, the staff is happy to make you a coffee of your choice. I recommend the cappuccino. The bar is open late and it is not very big, but it is a nice way to end the evening with a drink and bar snacks including peanuts and chips. The restaurant is excellent. The man who runs the restaurant is a true gentleman, and is a beautiful person from the inside out. He always welcomed patrons and made them feel like friends. I have a food allergy and everyday he made sure my meals were onion free. He participated in friendly dialogue and speaks a number of languages so communication is always effective. If I stayed any longer, I would have probably fallen in love with the food and the people. The conference facilities are average at best, however, if you need something, all you need to do is ask and you will be given whatever you ask for as long as the request is reasonable. The location of the hotel is about 20 minutes from the city centre. It is safe to travel alone and the hotel staff will give good directions. You can usually buy bus tickets at the hotel; they are 1.50 Euros each. There is a shopping mall, which you can walk to within ten minutes of the hotel. Although it does not have designer stores it offers a variety of stores and prices are reasonable. Everyone speaks English very well or excellent at the hotel. I enjoyed my stay very much and I am very grateful to the nice staff members, they truly made my trip enjoyable and stress free.
Staff spoke English very well. They knew where to go, how to catch the subway, and of course took good care of us as guests as well. The hotel is nice and a marriage of American and European features. As an American I felt more comfortable at the best western because of the American touches. I believe anyone, from anywhere, would like this hotel.
Room with twin beds. Small bathroom with toilet. Beautiful terrace accessible from the room. Very nice and helpful at the reception. Good connection to the center. Excellent price / performance ratio.
This hotel terrible Bestwestern I see hotel room very small not have a coffee in room in the room 16" TV still not working when Bestwestern have a sign. Not meeting any thing to keep Bestwestern flag. I didn't stay at hotel but we still have a charge because we check out at same day.
Hotel was very clean with friendly staff.Rooms were very good with air conditioning.Good choice of buffet breakfast.Location was very good. Only 15mins walk to one of the main train/metro stations or bus stop across the road.
It's near the train station but take a cab because it's a little hard to find. Once you're there you'll be fine to head back to the station without your bags and be on your way. Not much right at the hotel but it's close to the train which connects everything. Breakfast staff were great and happy to make a fresh coffee. Felt very safe since there was a Police convention while we were there and a number of police were staying at the hotel.
Yeah it is a little far away from downton but it is a really comfortable hotel. Not that expensive and the taxi ride to the touristic center doesn't take too long. We had very good nights here. The breakfast is good fot he italian standarts. The only down side is the lack of good eating options on the neighborhood.
The hotel is lovely the staff are very helpful and friendly breakfast was great plenty of choice the location is good supermarket over the road there is a pizzeria down the road the meals are lovely and it is very cheap the tiburtina station is only five minutes on the bus the bus stop is over the road from the hotel you can buy your bus tickets from the little shop next to the bus stop we bought a forty eight hour pass for twelve euros fifty each you can use it on the metro bus and tram the metro is very easy to use will definitely go back to this hotel
Reasonably priced hotel. Rooms are spacious and clean. Serves good breakfast too. But all the sights in Rome are at least an hour away and you need to ride a combination of buses and trains to get anywhere. Airport is also an hour away.
- Free WiFi and wired Internet in rooms and public areas
- Onsite dining
- Rooftop terrace
- Business center
