Hotel Camelia3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
A 10 minute walk from Termini and easy to plan a walking route on Google Maps, I'd guess a taxi from Termini might cost around E5, We arrived around 9.15pm, check in was fast and we were given a map that was annotated with the main sights and suggested routes which was helpful. I'd emailed asking for a double room with a balcony which we got and the bed was king size - there's only 1 balcony room with a street view, its room 212 and is one of the photos on the TA hotel listing, a decent size room and very clean In fact the whole hotel is clean, tidy and seems newly decorated, all the staff were pleasant Continental breakfast is served 7-10am and the coffee is fresh All round it's a decent mid-budget choice, walking its about 30 minutes to the Colosseum and an hour or so to the Vatican
Rome was our final stop and my travel agent booked this hotel for me because she said it was close to the metro/train. Here are my reviews of the Hotel Camelia: Good - hotel location. The hotel was about 3-4 winding blocks, about 3/4 mile, from the train station. There were several train stations within walking distance to the hotel, which is good. The hotel itself is just OK, maybe 2.8 stars. The bed was SUPER COMFORTABLE!! I slept very well at the hotel. There was a balcony behind the curtain in my room. It was a bonus I wasn't expecting. The breakfast attendant, with the German accent, was very nice!! Bad - breakfast was not horrible but very minimal. Nothing to brag on. I would go elsewhere to eat but it was included so I'd already paid for it. It was my least favorite breakfast of my Italian vacation. Hotel room was average, nothing to brag on. The bathroom was tiny. The sink counter top did not hold much more than soap and a toothbrush. The shower was small also. I'm a 5'11 female and the shower was fit for someone 5'7 or shorter. Not enough room to move around (and I'm not a supersized person)..maybe small bathrooms is a European thing. Location to attractions was not good. I like to be walkable to restaurants and sights and this place was not it. It was close to the train, yes, but who wants to ride the train everywhere as opposed to walking a block or two to your destination? Trains aren't free but walking is! Ugly - the hotel does not want you to eat in the room. I've never heard that before and it was annoying because I would be fined for eating in my room. If bugs are an issue they should probably invest in a good exterminator! I would not stay here again for many reasons but the main reasons are location and breakfast, location being #1. It is not a bad hotel just not my cup of tea.
My husband and I ventured to Italy for our 3rd wedding anniversary and spent 3 nights at this hotel. The hotel was smaller than expected but our room was exactly as pictured. Our room was quaint but clean. I actually inadvertently removed the shower door on our first night while trying to shower and luckily one of the staff members was able to fix it. She said it happens time to time. The staff was attentive, gave us tips on the good restaurants and how to navigate the area. The breakfast was decent. The usual, eggs, pastries and fruit. It was a nice stay during our time in Rome.
Quick stay en route to our cruise , cheapncheerful 👍, gr8 location near termini & easy to get to everything , quiet rooms with double glazing, close to freeromewalkingtour, small rooms but hey it's Roma, good value, staff gave gr8 recommendations for cafes etc , clean, safe location being right opposite the police station would stay again .
We stayed here for 3 nights on a family trip to Rome. The triple room we had was huge, and the double room was the perfect size. Beds are VERY firm. Hotel is very clean. Breakfast is great. Lots of variety and your choice of hot beverages in the morning... tea, coffee, cappuccino, hit chocolate... It's certainly not a fancy hotel, but a nice, modest place to stay when visiting Rome. It's about a 15 minute walk to Trevi Fountain or the Spanish Steps. It's about a 5 minute walk to Termini. About a 30 minute walk to the Colosseum/Palatino/Forum.
First of all hotel ambience is fine, so you wouldn't mind staying here. The location is superb, with supermarket (conad) just 50m away on one side (which is very helpful) and on another 50m a very good ice-cream shop(Romana was this shop's name). St. Peters square is at walking distance where you would find everything! Yes.. Like termini, bus stops, taxi, eating, shopping and even a good fountain. The hotel staff was also very supportive and helpful, as we had infant with us. Though I expected some surprise as we had our marriage anniversary, but overall a good hotel!
Booked the Hotel Camelia after searching through nearly every hotel in Rome! I don't regret it at all, it is a great little hotel - the staff are friendly, it is conveniently placed near to Termini station and within walking distance of all the major sites if you don't fancy the metro. Breakfast is included in the price of the room which is a big bonus - and there is a good selection of continental breakfast - cereals, croissants, yoghurts etc. The room and bathroom were spotless, in great condition and was certainly big enough for the amount of time you are in it on a city break. The hotel has Wifi - it is quite slow but is okay for messaging, emails etc. The TV doesn't have any English channels, but who watches TV when you have Rome to explore anyway! A great stay and would highly recommend!
This hotel is in a very quiet zone, just a few blocks from Termini. The stuff is very friendly and helped us with all the information .Just a remark ...the vegetables are missing on breakfast and not so good internet , but it did not bother .
A small hotel but thats what you get in this budget. Elaborative breakfast and free print out desk and Luggage room (which was really helpful as we could leave our luggage for 4 days). Thanks for upgrading us to Suite and it was definately a positive part of our Eurotrip.
This hotel is in a great central location--just a few blocks from Termini--so you can get around Rome easily from here. The staff was very welcoming and helpful and suggested fun places to visit and tours we could buy. The rooms were pretty utilitarian. Nothing fancy, but it was clean and sufficient for a place to crash.
