Stayed overnight with my room mate during our independent travel. Very convenient location at a great price

My partner and I had a wonderful vacation in Rome and our hotel provided a great home base from which to explore the city. As first time travelers to Rome we were hoping to find a centrally located hotel, Hotel Cinquantatre definitely fit the bill. The metro is a short walk down the block, and for those who prefer taxis the front desk staff will reserve one for you. Speaking of the front desk staff, they were professional, personable, and engaging. They had wonderful suggestions for restaurants and suggestions on how to use your time efficiently (i.e., best time to see attractions). The accommodations were comfortable, rooms were made up each day, and fresh towels were provided daily. Each morning we were greeted with smiles and a cheerful "Due cappuccino?" in the breakfast room, which we gladly accepted. The continental breakfast included yummy donuts, croissants, and a fresh torte. Another note on the location, one can easily walk to the Trevi Fountain, the Spanish Steps, and the Villa Borghese gardens. Prior to our arrival I contacted the Hotel requesting a specific room which features a huge balcony and asked for suggestions regarding transportation, they responded to both requests in a timely manner. Hotel Cinquantatre met our every expectation. As we plan our next trip to Rome, we definitely will stay with this fantastic hotel again! Room Tip: Rooms at the front of the hotel are a little louder as they face a cobbled road.

My friend and I found the hotel perfectly located. Just down the street from the metro stop Piazza Barberini which can lead you all over the city. It is also close to the trevi fountain and in the center of the city so you can walk to most locations such as the Vatican or the Coliseum if you feel up to it. Asides from that the staff is very friendly and the rooms are comfortable. Its small but that is to be expected when you are staying in a city. I would recommend the hotel to my friends just because the value is worth it.

The front desk (daytime) male receptionist was exceptionally good and very helpful, cordial and welcoming. The complimentary continental breakfast in the roof deck was very good and the "wait" staff (lady) even better. The ONLY complaint we had during our stay was the airconditioning which was preset at 18 degC. It was uncoimfortably warm for us without being able to adjust the temperature. Our room faced the main road so it became a choice of noise or heat.

I had a wonderful stay at Hotel Cinquantatre (pronounced cheen'kwon'tot'tray - which I only butchered the first day). The staff are wonderfully friendly, especially the Reservations Manager, Nima Payamyar... he was fantastically helpful in finding local food, shopping and spoke excellent English. Each level has 3 rooms except for level 5 which has 2 rooms. The quaint terrace in on level 6 and I highly recommend taking your breakfast there every morning! The roman breakfast is a cappuccino (or espresso), a glass of OJ, and a chocolate croissant, although they do have cereal, milk, and other pastries available, as well as sliced pineapple. The wifi never works, except on some days between 4pm and 6pm. They have a computer downstairs that you can use to check email if you don't have a global smart-phone (points to self). Also, I have never seen a hair dryer like the ones this hotel has. I'm sure they are normal in Europe to some extent, but it was a strange gadget that took some finessing. Having stayed in Ireland, I knew better than to plug mine in without converter. Also, if you go during August, be prepared to sweat and be very grateful for the AC, which is set at 18C (64) as the rest of the AC in Rome seem to be, which brings the temp to about 75 or 80 in most places. They will turn the AC off while you are out, so it may take a few minutes to get the room cooled off when you get back, but I understand the reasoning and didn't mind. You end up showering immediately anyway. Have fun, and remember that while this isn't a 5-star, you don't spend much time in your hotel, so this more than does the trick for a mere 90euro/night!

Excellent location with amazing and helpful staff. The rooms are somewhat small, but then the price id very reasonable.

The hotel was a great location. Very close to the Trevi fountain and the Spanish Steps. The metro is a 2 minute walk and very convenient. However, we walked everywhere while in Rome. The hotel itself was very small, but it had its own personality and seemed to suit us. It was a typical Roman hotel, very small rooms but very clean. Breakfast was offered on the top floor; we sat on the balcony every morning and saw the city. The hotel staff was very helpful and all spoke English. They offered maps and made sure we had everything we needed. We will definitely return on our next visit.
