i reallly didn't know what i was getting into and where i was staying in italy, but this hotel was the best guess i could have made. The hotel is so cute! you take a vintage cage elevator to your floor, and they give you a little vintage key for your room. The space was very small, yet efficient and clean. Bathroom had a flip down bidet!! The hotel is within walking distance to many tourist areas, i believe i walked to the colosseum at the time, if you're single you should stay here. The bar scene was nice, but not particularly friendly. still, great hotel!

Location was great Staff were helpful Good variety for breakfast Room was average Not very happy with the bathrooms, very old & small

We like this hotel. Everyone is friendly and helpful. Important that room is clean and beds are clean. Negative: first room 211 we stay in was really for the hotel with 1-2 stars (inside). We couldn't open the window because of the huge car noise from the highway next block. With the window closed it was still very noisy, we couldn't sleep well and my 11 yo next morning had a great headache (he never had migraine before). Next day we were moved to the 3rd floor at 311. Room is nice, fabric on the walls, high celling. But still noisy, a bit better though compering the first one. (It situated at the same side of the building). On another side was construction: the hotel renovation. I would prefer it anyway since for us was more important is quiet night: all day time we were at the museums and on the streets. But we didn't want to pack again, so we stayed at 311. Location of the hotel is good, bus 117 is very close, bringing you to the colosseum and to the piazza Venezia, as well as bus 628 brought us to the Baths Caracalla. Full breakfast is really good. If you leave in the city, that will be good hotel for you for that price. If you are village person, try to find the hotel on the quiet street. There are plenty of the hotels in Rome:)

Hotel is centrally located just footsteps from Piazza del Popolo,and close to the Flaminio transportation hub. Its side street location avoids the heavy tourist foot traffic and associated noise.Our deluxe room was large and charming,impeccably clean and with neat decorations from an era past.The bathroom was also quite large and completely modernized.The free room Wi-Fi ,mini fridge,and safe, all came in handy .The hotel staff was pleasant and extremely helpful,and most accommodating to all our needs.The complimentary breakfast buffet was superb and the most complete I've seen,it also included cold cuts and rolls.We skipped lunch each day! We will continue to stay at this hotel in all future visits to Rome.

The hotel had lots of Old World charm. The facilities were very good. The breakfast buffet was fantastic even though the buffet dining room was poorly lit. My single room was Spartan, but clean and comfortable. The sound proof glass in the window kept the room quiet from the considerable street noise. The area the hotel is located in was excellent. The staff was excellent. I had a very good experience.

I have stayed here before years ago and it is just as I remember it. It is charming, old world and in a great location. Typically Italian. This is not an American cookie cutter chain so if that is what you are looking for this is not the place for you. The standard double rooms are a decent size for Rome and include antique furniture, not fine antiques but lend to the charm. Our room came with a shower not a tub and was on the small side but clean and adequate. The bar at the Hotel is popular with locals both young and old and i did not find it loud unli

bad bathroom - tub shower but with no curtaibathroom flooded - they did clean quickly when advised

Overall the Hotel Locarno was great. The location was close to most things. We walked to dine, shop and over to St. Peter's Square. The subway was also nearby which made it easy to get to the other famous Rome sites. The staff spoke English and was very welcoming. The room was comfortable with lots of character. The breakfast was so good. We want to go back.
