Hotel Marc Aurelio4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
We stayed one night in the hotel, and it was the most uncomfortable night sleep we had while in Italy. This is mainly due to us waking up in the middle of the night sweating with no AC (and AC is good to have in the middle of summer in Rome). We opened the windows to let some cooler air in, but it got warm again as soon as the sun came up. We informed the front desk when we checked out that the AC was not working in the room, and the person said it only comes on at certain times. We told him it was not working the whole night, and he just said "sorry about that". Otherwise, the rooms are fairly basic and not sure why it is considered a 4 star hotel. All that means is you pay more in city room tax. We stayed in much nicer hotels in Italy which are considered 3 stars. Breakfast is basic with croissants, bread, coffee, cocoa crisps and cornflakes for cereal, and ham and cheese.
At this hotel 3 nights- Found the front desk staff to be exceptionally nice and helpful in every way. Room was neat and clean, everything worked well. Full breakfast every am. Beds were hard, but as we like hard beds we slept better here than anywhere else on our trip! The neighborhood is not tourist, you are in residential Rome, and we enjoyed feeling the character of the city. Be sure to try the ice cream shop 3 minutes (walk) up the road, fabulous! The Metro stop is about 7-8 minutes walking, gets you everywhere for only 1 Euro. Bus stops are closer, but we didn't use these. Only 1 negative - the hotel booked several Italian school groups while we were there, and they did get loud at times! But the hotel made sure that they had their own floor, so it didn't affect sleeping at all. Overall a very nice experience for our trip.
