The Best Western Royal Santina Hotel is located at 22 via Marsala and in my opinion is the ideal place to bed down. Located within an easy 5 minute walk from the Termini Station to this hotel. ( this hotel was recommended by a close friend of mine that had check many hotels around this area.). I booked well ahead at a rate of 148 Euro's per night. This hotel is the perfect place to stay if you want to be near the train, bus and metro system. ( all in one)! Ideal for catching a cruise ship leaving the port of Civitavecchia ( taking the non stop train from Termini station will take you 1 hour train ride and cost you 5 Euro's. other wise the regional trains will make a number of stops and will take 1 hour and 22 minutes. An easy walk from the train station to the port entrance will take about 20 minutes or less. You can catch the FREE Port Shuttle bus to your ship just inside the entrance to the port.Also you can catch a cab from the train station to your ship as well. Because we were traveling with 2 other couples and luggage ,,we decided to forget about the train and had the hotel send us a private vehicle which cost us 160 Euro's from the hotel to the ship. ( regular rate of !80 Euro's). From the FCO airport you can go by train, bus or taxi.to the downtown Main Termini Station. I decided to try my luck on the bus this time vs the train ( taxis are to expensive 45 Euros). As you exit terminal 3 baggage claim at the FCO airport, make a right turn and walk to the end of the building exiting on to the side walk. You will see signs directing you to the many buses parked and ready to go for different parts of the city. There are attendants who speak very good English that will direct you to the bus you will need to get you to the Rome Termini Station .You can pay the 6 Euro per person ride in a very comfortable bus ! hour ride. You can pay at the Kiosh booth near by as well. Arriving at thje Termini Station , ask the bus driver for directions to Via Marsala ' Best Western Royal Santina is a 118 room ultra modern hotel. From the lobby to the rooms. The check in staff were very helpful. Forgot your AC adapter> Not to worry, you can borrow one from them.They can also print out the train time schedule to any where in Italy.( Book ahead as this hotel books full). This hotel has 3 elevators. Our room # 615 was a very clean, small ultra modern room with a comfortable king bed that sat low to the floor. ( other rooms in this hotel are larger and with views). A very compact room with a bath room that was surprisingly large with a tub and walk in shower. No micro wave, It did have a refrigerator. This room faced the busy street of Via Marsala. Even with all the traffic, it was a very quite room.No problem sleeping, Breakfast buffet will cost you 5 Euro's per person and worth the price, Lunch and dinner is also served. A lot of restaurants around this area. The front desk staff recomended the La Famigila restaurant located 1 1/2 blocks from the hotel. Ask for directions as there are several restaurants with the like name that is more expensive and the food not as good. Usually you will see 5 tour buses parked across the street in front of . the hotel during the AM, So, grab your camera, buy your ticket and hop on board! Happy Travels, Sydney Paul ..
I would choose this hotel only if you want to be next to the train station. The breakfast is good and staff is accommodating. They'll even hold your bags, order you a taxi, make a reservation; however, the location benefit is limited to being next to the train station. All other attractions and restaurant access is further away. Be cautious of the area. A lot of traffic and people due to the access to the station.
The hotel turned off AC and the room was too warm...there was a window (which remained crack -which created am awful draft during the late hours. The bathroom was designed to be modern- but it wasn't practical. We only had a shower - however the shower did not have enclosed glass doors ~ so water was everywhere. Bed was too soft! Breakfast buffet was average at best...lukewarm 'hot' food, half cooked bacon, not appetizing. We were on a non-smoking floor - however we could smell cigarette smoke as soon as we exited our room.
It was my wife's 50th birthday trip, and we were going on a cruise that sailed from Rome. So we stayed here for 3 nights before the cruise, along with a dozen of our friends! We apologize to those who had a room facing the little garden on the 1st floor, as we tend to gather there before and after dinner, and we got a little (lot) loud. The rooms were quite large. As we were only there for a short time, we did not unpack, and we were able to leave our suitcases on the floor and still not trip over them. The bed was comfortable, really nice bathrooms, and nice soft linens! The buffet breakfast was only €5 per person, really affordable and good.
We enjoyed our 5 night stay at this hotel. The rooms were spacious (for Europe) and well maintained. The staff were very helpful. The location was convenient for easy walking to many sites. There was a breakfast buffet with a great selection for a reasonable cost. We were traveling with a group of friends and there is an inside courtyard that became a wonderful meeting place.
Good rooms and friendly staff. Very helpful at check in with great tips for sight seeing. The restaurant is very good with quality food at a good price (for Rome). Great Breakfast and good value at 5 Euro.
My girlfriend and I spent 5 nights at this hotel and we had a very good experience, if we had any questions or problems we had great customer service and they responded quickly. Hotel room and bathroom were modern and clean , cleaners were great too with their attention to detail. Breakfast was not included but we were only charged 5 euros pp. Hotel is located 5 minutes from Roma Termini station, only a 35-40 minute train ride from Fiumicino airport and also 5 minutes from the main bus station. All in all a very lovely trip,would highly recommend.
Loved the location of this hotel, it was a block from the train station and an easy walk to a lot of tourist spots, like the Trevi Fountain. The room was very comfortable and quite modern-- those fancy ambient lights may have required a call to the front desk for me to figure out, but the person working was very friendly and didn't make me feel like an idiot for needing some guidance. I also had the best meal of my vacation by taking their advice on where to go; having a knowledgeable front desk staff is always a plus. The only downside was that the walls seemed quite thin, so I could easily hear other guests running around at odd hours of the night.
The Hotel Royal Santina was simply one of the best hotels I stayed at while visiting Italy and Greece over a 12 day period. The staff was exceptionally welcoming and helpful, and my upgraded room was luxurious. It's location and easy access to Termini for both city access and transportation to the airports and city highlights/tours was excellent. I would only choose this hotel in the future. I only wish I'd arranged additional days in advance, but will surely plan to do so when I return next year!
The hotel is well located for travellers with only a 5 minute stroll from Roma Termini Railway Station which has express trains to the International Airport and other international train services. Our room was on the top floor and was a good size with modern fittings. The only fault we found was that the cord on the electric jug was too short to reach the power points provided. The restaurant did not offer a large choice of food but was adequate and reasonably priced. Breakfast was an excellent buffet for the low price charged. Recommended.
