Hotel Gambrinus

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

3 night stay at the Gambrinus. Pleasant hotel spotlessly clean with friendly efficient staff who were very helpful. Good breakfast plenty of choices for continental tastes. Cake to die for!! would recommend this hotel for a short break.

Bad wifi lets this hotel down. The hotel management did not care much to fix it: "internet is like this" and seemed to think WiFi in the room is not important and kept offering a PC in the lobby. Great breakfast, nice 3 star hotel but definitely not 4 stars. Shower drained so slow that I had to have quick showers to avoid flooding the bathroom, my husband didn't mind that too much. Big fan of the liquid soap and shampoo dispensers, much nicer than individual bars and tiny bottles although harder to steal ;-) Luckily I take S or XS in clothes or I would have found the shower a bit of a squeeze. My XXL husband had to.wash himself in sections and cover the floor with towels. Loved the high ceiling, liked the old fashioned kitsch decor. Bed was comfortable. Lift was fine, slow and no option to use stairs, but I liked that. The labyrinth layout also gives character. Nice friendly staff. So if WiFi is not important to you, I recommend this hotel. It's half an hour walk form the main attractions. We unknowingly spilled and then slept on some M&Ms leaving some very dodgy looking stains on our bedsheet. Rather embarrassing that this was the day we bumped into the maids cleaning our room. Glad to say this was one of the days our sheets were changed (not an every day occurence) and even more pleased that the brown streaks didn't generate any comment or even a dirty look from the maids who didn't know it was chocolate. To merit the 4 stars this hotel claims it needs more international TV, a minibar that not only stocks more than just water but also keeps it stocked, it needs a decent bar and room service, it needs stable wifi and it needs staff that work more to fix things and less to explain that they don't work. Luckily this last point was limited to the wifi problems we were just asked to accept or to blame on our laptop. All in all though, acceptable value for the money we paid given the great discount we enjoyed.

We visited Rome for the first time in this hotel,the rooms were spacious and beds were comfortable,a beautiful fragrance of orange perfumes the entrance, the cleaning department really do a good job in cleaning all areas every day ,rooms , halls etc... The lunch was great, we also loved the restaurant in front called Il forno di la sofita, absolutly great, bus stop is also right in front of the hotel it’s a strategical point to visit the whole city of Rome, would definitely go again.

Room has a large double bed, clean and warm. It was perfect for our weekend get away. We also had continental breakfast included which was good. The staff were very nice and the room was cleaned every day we were there. It is also a great cheap price!

Lovely clean hotel staff very freindly and helpful central location only 20 minute walk from Spanish steps great little supermarket a few doors away lovely city we did lots of walking😊so wear comfortable footwear..

We stayed here for our mini-moon in August for three nights. The hotel is in a fantastic location. It is walking distance from the main train station and close to lots of metro stations. We were able to walk to all of our points of interest (other than the coliseum and Vatican City). Lots of nice restaurants around the hotel area too. Our room was nice and very clean. It was a good size - We only really used it to sleep in, the rest of the time we were out and about!! We were grateful for the air conditioning as we went during the heatwave! There were amenities in the bathroom and an iron and ironing board in the bedroom. There is a hairdryer in the room but it is quite slow and doesn't get very hot - For ladies with long hair, I would recommend that you bring your own!! We had breakfast included in our deal. The choice was quite limited but set us up for the day. They had a selection of meats, cheeses and pastries, as well and yogurts and fruit juices. The staff in the hotel were pleasant and friendly. They were happy to store our bags for us on our final day until we were ready to leave for the airport.

Clean spacious hotel excellent Staff great breakfast!! 35 minute walk to all the attractions excellent restaurants close by buss service almost right in front. highly recommend this hotel great price with all the amenities

Hotel is old and dirty, not a 4-star hotel. More like a 2-star. The furniture is old, the bathroom was old and didn't seem very clean. Scary smell from the sewer . There no bathrobe, slippers, shoehorn .WIFI is very poor. The breakfast is'n tasty.

More like hostel than hotel.Upgrade room we paid for was minuscule.Wardrobe crammed with 3 quilts and a safe.Little hanging space.Bathroom door faulty and wedged open giving no privacy.Shower fitting hanging off wall .Noise level from flats at back unbearable.Waiter Rual fantastic .Always cheerful.helpful and professional despite coping single handed with all diners.

Gambrinus is an old hotel, well positioned but not very sure is a 4* hotel. Clean room but very small. First night I had a single room which have around 6sqm. Effectively, a very small place with a bed and a tv table. I let my luggage on the floor and I couldn't open the door or enter in bathroom. I mention that second night they change my room with a bigger one (not at my request). Breakfast was good enough to start the day.
