Hotel Erdarelli

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We only stayed one day in this hotel and it was a good value for the money. Location is great, but the actual room is just ok. There was only one shared bathoorm on the floor. Continental breakfast was really good too.

I stayed one night at Hotel Erdarelli for one night and I went in with 2 Star expectations and was disappointed. Pros: Location is easy walking distance to most Rome attractions Breakfast was decent Staff was good Cons: Room hadn't been updated in 50+ years Most of the power outlets in the room didn't work** Bed was more like a cot Wifi only available in lounge **Hotel was working at updating the electrical and actually moved me to a different hotel at no cost because of these issues. Would I stay there again? Probably not.

Rome is such a beautiful city that nothing can ruin the experience of being there. However, after a long day of strolling in the streets, one needs a properly working shower and easily flushing toilet. This hotel, while its location is quite good, fails to provide the basic needs of its customers, most importantly a functioning bathroom. My bathroom was so small that if I was a larger person, it would be impossible for me to fit in. The water running from the shower was either boiling or freezing. The shower head could not be mounted on its pole, which meant that I had to hold it with one hand, while shampooing myself with the other. The room itself was so tiny that there was hardly any space for my luggage. It looked clean, but it needed overall maintenance. Over the years, I have stayed at various 2-star hotels in Italy, but this hotel was probably the least satisfactory.

It is close to everything. I walked everywhere and never used transportation with the exception of airport transfers. It was a small room with ac but not windows. It was good enough just to sleep in. Breakfast was included and the staff was friendly and helped out. Spoke good English. The didn't have a bathroom it had one for each floor. Overall the hotel was that great but the location couldn't be better for the price.

perfect location near spanish steps yet surprisingly quiet at nite. not for the faint of heart, as the staff was good with the towels but not keen on keeping the (shared) toilets operating - one of two in hall was plugged for >36h. also floor not swept in 8d, and the breadkfasts were not good. price was low for rome, however, so not a bad tradeoff. might get better once construction finished. (windows obscured by scaffolding at present)

Walking distance to the major Rome atractions! Very helpfull and friendly staff. Dirty bathrooms. Old building and old blankets. Shared bathrooms. You get what you paid!

Old hotel rooms, but clean and cute. Near termini, but not a particularly savory area. Plenty of restaurants nearby. Breakfast is served with no-fuss no-frills professionalism, which for us was a couple of croissants and a couple of packaged toasts with jam. One unusual warning- we were on the bottom floor, and left the shutters unlocked, only to have a thief steal my bag with passport in it while I was sleeping. This may not be a problem for you- especially if you are not an American, and if you just lock the doggone window!

This hotel is nothing fancy, but has everything that a visitor to Rome would need--a clean bed, decent room, and a shower. If you're looking for a Marriott or Holiday Inn, this isn't the place for you. If you are looking for a decent space in a great location and a great bargain, this is the place for you. I would definitely stay here again. There was no AC in our room, but the room stayed cool and the windows opened all the way.

Perfect for an independent traveler who doesn't plan on spending too much time at the hotel besides sleeping. Efficient use of space. Very nice and helpful staff.

The hotel is in a great location, only a 5 minute walk from the Spanish Steps. The hotel itself, however, lacks basic maintenance. The few electrical outlets that worked had exposed wiring. The shared shower was nonfunctional. Loose tiles on the floor, etc. I am accustomed to budget traveling, but this one was a bit expensive for what it offered.

This hotel is super close to EVERYTHING. It was clean, the towels were big and fresh everyday and as a solo female traveler I felt safe. The breakfast isn't huge, but the croissants with chocolate were fresh every day (I saw the delivery truck, even on Sunday)and I enjoyed coffee on my balcony every morning. It's an old hotel, but it's charming. I will definitely stay there again. I also shared a bathroom, but only with one other room and I never ran into the other people at all. I was afraid it was going to be inconvenient but it wasn't.

We were very happy with this hotel. It was basic, bathroom down the hall, but clean, nice personnel, absolutely ideal location. Everyone was nice and helpful. Our last visit we stayed in much nicer hotel, but this was so close to everything I was happier with it.

Just don't book this hotel. My friends and I walked into the hotel with high hopes because the lobby looked incredibly nice. It was deceiving...We walked into our room and expected the whole bathroom/room setup...nope...It's nothing like an American hotel, but if you're just looking for a place to sleep, I guess it'll do.

this was the second time I went to Roma with friend. the hotel was really out of date, no internet access, manually operated elevator, the lobby looked nice, but once you got to the room which was really disappointed, very tiny tiny room with tiny bathroom, I have been travelling a lot on business trip, this is my own short vacation trip with friend, we have 3 luggages, we have to leave one luggage in front of the entrance door, because no space at all in the room we can place the third luggage, the light in the room was dark, the bathroom was tiny. very noisy at night.the only good thing about the hotel was in great location, you can walk to Spanish step and short distrance to Collesum, THe st. peter's church, Trevi fountain by bus or metro.

I wouldn't recommend this hotel if you plan on really staying in the hotel. However, who really wants to do that while in Rome? The location of this place can't be beat. It's right near a Metra stop and a 5 minute walk from both the Spanish steps and Trevi Fountain. The Pantheon can't be more than 10 minutes away either. The room was small, but it was enough for the two of us. We had a balcony as well which was wonderful. In terms of amenities, there wasn't too much. We had a TV on the wall, but hardly any of the lights worked in the room. The elevator was slightly terrifying. Our bathroom was a shared bathroom, which we knew we were getting. There was nothing at all wrong with that. Breakfast was served daily. It was mostly bread, cheese and coffee. It was plenty for us. All in all, I would definitely stay at this place again if I were in the same situation. An early 20s traveler with his girlfriend. I wouldn't really take a family here, but the price was great and it was more than I expected.

I would highly recommended this hotel if only for the price and location. The building is very old, and you can tell, but it is right in the middle of Rome. Almost everything that you would like to see is easily in walking distance. I found the beds to be very comfortable. Showering was a little difficult. There are not bathrooms attached to the rooms and not all of the shared bathrooms have showers in them/have shower curtains if there is a shower head. My room did have a sink which made not having own bathroom really not a big deal. Breakfast in the morning was very delicious. The people working at the front desk know just enough English to get by, but the hotel provides you with lots of maps and brochures of the city so it is not necessary to ask them a whole lot of questions. The hotel may not be the most modern place in the world, but assuming that your reason for being is Rome is to see the city and not spend all day in a luxury hotel, then all that really matters is location, comfort of beds, and quality breakfasts and this hotel has all of those things.

Amazing location!!!! When they say the hotel is within walking distance from the Trevi Fountain and the Spanish steps, they aren't kidding! They were surprisingly close and very easy to get to. The complimentary breakfast was very good. Lots of sweets and coffee. The rooms are nice. They include a tv and a sink (the bathroom is for the whole floor, but it was very clean). The only problem I had was that the hotel advertises that they have an airport shuttle. This is not true. It's a taxi service that costs 50 euros one way. This isn't bad if you are traveling with more than 2 people, but very inconvenient if you are by yourself. There is always the option of taking the metro and then the bus, but it was only a 7 euro difference.

See the city Exelent location People who work there were exelent. Hot watere all the time, No courtaing in the Showere, did not change the sheet every day, not internet. It was my first time in Rome

I was at Hotel Erdarelli on Via due Machelli number 28, in Rome, Italy, perfect location, great service, nice people, very open to help and the best I left everything in my room like I was told and was perfect, Thank you [...] you make my trip perfect!!!

Staying at this hotel was truly a new experience for me. This hotel is in big need of renovations. The room given to us was large, however it was very dated, the walls needed a paint job, the floors needed repair and the furniture was a throw back to the 50's. [...]The breakfast included with the reservation was standard and our overall the stay was not bad. The room was cleaned every day and some of the staff was friendly. Would I recommend this hotel to anyone? Yes and NO!!I guess if you're on a budget, sightseeing all day and want a great location to stay in just for bathing and sleeping than this hotel is great. If you're going in with expectations of luxury and want to spend quiet time in the room than this is not the hotel for you.
