Fantastic hotel 5 mins from the coliseum Lovey breakfast Staff so helpful Very clean Beautiful restaurants nearby all nationalities catered for Quaint little streets making experience more fantastic okay Highly recommended
Booked this hotel specifically because its address is close to the train. But upon check-in, I was told to go to another unknown and unsigned building (named hotel de Monti) 5 minutes away. Ended up having to drag my luggage uphill 5 more minutes away from the train station, and then up 4 floors without elevators. My original booking had breakfast included. But the unknown building doesn't have breakfast and I have to walk 5 minutes one-way in the morning to the original booking address in order to get my breakfast. Worse, the unknown building was very poorly maintained. The first room had unbearable methane or ammonia smell. so I walked back to the original booking address to switch rooms, then they give me another room in the unknown building, but as soon as I sat on the bed, one of the legs gave away. I called maintainance, the owner of the building came but wasn't able to fix the bed then and there, he used a stack of books to pop up the bed.
We stayed here for 3 nights and had a really pleasant stay. Check-in is at Hotel Griffo and it's just a short walk to the De Monti. The receptionist was fantastic, really friendly and helpful. The hotel rooms are situated on the 3rd floor, which may be difficult for those with mobility issues as there is no lift. The room was basic, but very clean and comfortable. The rooms were cleaned daily and fresh towels were also provided daily. Breakfast is taken at the Hotel Griffo, and is basic but adequate for what you pay for. However, the best thing about the hotel is the location. It's literally a 10 - 15 min walk to the coleseum. There's plenty of restaurants/cafes etc in the vicinity too. All in all a really lovely stay and highly recommended if you want to be close to the Coleseum.
Lovely budget hotel in a great location. (Coliseum is a 15 min walk). Check-in is at Hotel Griffo, which is a short walk to the hotel. The staff are incredibly helpful and friendly. The room was spotless and was cleaned daily with fresh towels provided throughout our 3 night stay. The rooms are situated on the 3rd floor and the steps are rather steep - so perhaps not ideal if you have mobility issues. Unfortunately no tea/coffee facilities in the room, but a short morning stroll to the Hotel Griffo for breakfast was a lovely way to start the day. Breakfast is basic, but for a budget hotel, it was more than adequate. All in all, a really lovely, welcoming hotel in a fantastic location.
The Hotel was nice and spacious it was clean and you could have it cleaned daily. Nice location close to Colosseum the only let down for me was no tea and coffee facilities in the room but if you want to stay in a nice quiet area of Rome but still has enough bars and restaurants in the area this is for you. Check in is at Hotel Griffo and the lady on reception was very helpful.
I would like to divide this review into pro's and con's of our stay. First of all, we knew about the three flight of stairs to get to our rooms, which as one reviewer said 'its a workout', but no complaints. The pro's: The location is perfect to access the sights e.g. 10 minute walk to the Coliseum/Forum and a 15/20 minute walk to the Panthenon and Trevi Foutain. The staff were all extremely friendly and helpful and a special thanks to Eva for her tips and advice. The room itself was comfortable, clean and the area of Monti had lots of dining options to choose from and with exception of our last night, we dined within a brief walk of the hotel, such was the choice. The con's: The water temperature for the shower was too cool for our taste and while at high summer this may be a blessing, in January it was a shock to the system. I felt that the room could have had tea/coffee facilities as this tends to be standard in most hotels and more storage space for clothing would have been welcome. Overall, these con's did not spoil our stay and we would return for the right price, but perhaps we would choose the Hotel Griffo to avoid the stairs again (I'm approaching 62 years old, so I would go for the easy option of a lift). Our stay will leave us with very pleasant memories of Rome and as I threw a coin over my left shoulder with my right hand at the Trevi Fountain, I will get my wish to return.
Our room had windows, but no view we did have air conditioning. We knew beforehand that there was no lift and we would be on the third floor. The attraction of staying here was the 1500 year old building. Having walked several kilometres around Rome all day in 30 degrees and considerable humidity, at 60 plus years of age, the concept of climbing 58 steps to get to some comfort was a little daunting. Having said this the hotel is close to a lovely area with lots of interesting shops and eateries. The coliseum is a 15 minute walk away, if we return we would probably stay at the Hotel Grifo they have an elevator!
My family of five stayed in two rooms. Both rooms had a king bed and a twin. Rooms were very comfortable, AC worked well and bathroom was equipped well. The breakfast was superb and included in the price of the room. There is a Metro stop across the street, but we walked to Colosseum (5 minutes), Trevi Fountain (15 minutes) and the Forum (20 minutes.) Lots of restaurants around that were excellent. Will stay again.
Very nice hotel. Looks new. Breakfast included. There is a mini mart just across the street. Alot of eateries all over the area. Not just italian food. Colassium walking distance just down the street to ur right then left. The forum very close to the colissium. The hotel rooms have a safe. Currently the balcony view is not available cuz they seem to be upgrading it. Got a peek though and its a big balcony.
Fantastic little place right in the best part of Rome. Angelo was a great host and very helpful. The rooms are basic but were perfect for what we needed. Very clean room with a nice basic breakfast included. The location was perfect, really central to all the places we wanted to see. Will definitely stay here again when we are back in Rome!!
