We found this hotel as our lifesaver after having a horrific experience with the supposed hostel we booked online, more like an improvised shelter/business but anyways we wanted to be near the train station since we needed to take a very early train to the airport. The location is definitely near the train station just steps away and the front desk person was nice, he showed me the room and we took it without much hesitation as we were suddenly without a place to stay. The bathroom is big and the room is ok but very dark and the stained walls give it a gloomy, dirty look. Tv and a/c worked correctly as did all the lights and plumbing so it was fine just the looks could really improve. The bedding can also use some improvement for comfort. The breakfast was great and it was included, excellent variety of buffet with cheese, breads, prosciutto, ham, tea, coffee, juice, jams. More than we expected so big congratulations for that. Unfortunately even if it's close to the station I didn't feel this was a safe area, the second night the noise on the street was so loud we couldn't sleep (things being tossed, bottles and people shouting) and it's extremely dirty, also there is a lot of homeless people lying around on every corner and drunk people wondering or falling on the streets, smells are also bad and strong outside and the stink from people smoking outside makes its way inside the entrance hall onto the stairs of the first floor, annoying and disgusting. It was not awful but it didn't reach the basics for a great experience either so it's in the middle.
When we went to the reception area in the rimini,we were told to return at 13.30 because we were to early. The employee behind the reception came across so rude, not sure if he was having a bad day or not. We return to the hotel at 13.30,we were then told we had to pay 4 euro extra for the night for the room,due to foreigner tax.? This was new to us ,thinking we had paid for the holiday already,his was very confusing for us. The room was tidy and clean and the breakfast in the morning was basic with cereals yoghurt, bread cheese,ham croissants. Air conditioning was,working well, The lift look like something from the 1950.Location of the hotel, was brilliant.
The location was superb! Close to termini station. Everything was ok. With some efforts they can be better. The room service wasn't so good. We stayed there for 4 days and they didn't put new soaps. We took shower with the shampoo. That was ridiculous! Also the shower's water wasn't going, we asked them to fix but they ignored. And it was annoying that we had to call them every time to control the ac's temperature. We didn't have a remote controller in the room.
I titled my review this way because while I booked the Hotel Corot, the elevator to our room was in the Remini, and the soap in the bathroom was labeled as the Rimini so who knows which hotel I was really in. I wanted to stay in a hotel right by the train station and that is the only thing this hotel got right. I found it very off putting the way the desk attendant informed me that the tax had to paid in cash. This was not the case at the hotels I stayed at in Venice or Florence so I was a bit surprised. The wifi barely stays connected so it's useless. When you ask the desk for help they tell you you are lying because it's working. The room is dated but I expected that from the three stars. The breakfast is stale. On the third day of our stay, we came back to our room and the air conditioner wasn't working. We called repeatedly to the front desk with no answer. When we finally got through by calling with our cell phone and not the room phone, they bit my head off when I said no one was answering. They claimed they were busy. First, that is no reason to yell at me. Second, I just came through the lobby to my room and there wasn't a soul there so who were you busy with? When I told them about the air conditioner, they were again rude and said that I have to tell them to turn it on when I get back to my room. Really? Since when? I haven't done that for the past several days. I had just assumed it was on and off like the lights with my room card. I requested a wake up call for this morning and never received it. And the kicker is that I have several bug bites that I'm beginning to get concerned may be bed bugs. I won't be returning. There are plenty of other hotels in this area so I recommend trying one of them. And if I owned this hotel, I would definitely do something about your rude staff. They are definitely hurting your business. Hotel guests shouldn't have to put up with being yelled at.
I was staying in the Hotel Corot in late June when it was hot and humid!! However the AC worked the best I have ever had on a trip to Europe. If it was not cold enough or too hot you could call to the desk and they would changed it immediately. There was an airline ticket problem and they put an effort to get my ticket corrected. A very helpful staff!!!
After being offered a very poor room with a double bed when we made enough fuss were given a much nicer room with two single beds. The double glazing was incredibly effective so we found it very quiet at night. Breakfast was adequate and the staff were helpful, especially Mattiu. Very clean and good value. Ideal for the tour buses and metro. We enjoyed our four day stay.
I decided, with my daughter's godfather, to take a trip to Rome, for tourism reasons. So, Corot seemed perfect, since it's located a few meters from the side entrance of Termini (Rome's central r/r station. So, booking.com, grabbed ourselves the internet offer, all the pics of the hotel were fine. Let's go... We arrived there...the outside is in the same style as any other building in Rome; Old and rustic, no problem with that, at all. The receptionist was very good. Polite and warm, with good english, he offered us all the help we could get... ...and then we headed for the room... How would you call a room where its height was bigger than its width/length? Where the beds were allowing you to lay still; in case you wanted to change position, i guess you would lay on the floor... Although it was clean, it looked dirty, miserable, untended and derelict; since there were no traces of renewal for years. The only window of the room, was looking the a dirty, open space, centered in the middle of the block... And the first thing I though was that it was amateurish to give your spare rooms, with no photo attached in the "deals" page of the hotel, and make us selecting it for a "3 Star"... On the plus-es, the fair breakfast and the fully-equipped bathroom (although very small). Only suitable for those who would return only for a nap at night (and don't care about anything more) and want a centre-located accommodation. Pity, I had other expectations...
3 adults booked in for 2 January for the 1 night, did a lot of research before booking this hotel. Great location look for the coffee shop called "Caffè Trombetta", and the hotel is 30 seconds from there. Check in was trouble free and a lady showed us to our room on the 1st floor. Very spacious and clean, bathroom was of typical Italian decor. The rooms may not be to everyones taste but compared to some we have stayed in this was very acceptable. No tea/coffee facilities but the caffe does a lovely latte, so we got these before heading down to breakfast on chek-out day. There was work going on across the raod but this doesnt start till after 8am and did not bother us at all. Breakfast was really really good, plenty of cereal, rolls, pastries, croissant,s, cheese, ham, yogurts, jams, spreads, juice. I had read some reviews saying not a lot of choice, but we had more than enough to keep everyone happy. Checkout was stress free. I would not hesitate to stay here again, mainly for location but the breakfast was also an added bonus and we all slept very well. Well worth the money we paid.
Bargain stay at good location; went during summer, air conditioning operated till 7am, room was hot & stuffy; excellent breakfast; walking distance to Termini; poor wifi; do request for rooms at the lower levels as the lift is rather slow; plenty of restaurant nearby
When I booked I wasn't expecting a nice place but I was impressed. Good location, it is near Termini. The room was clean and in good state and breakfast had breads, eggs and fruits. The price charged was fair.
