Hotel Novecento

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This 3 star hotel met my expectations, there is nothing bad I can write about the hotel, there are a couple of good restaurants and convenience stores that open until around midnight within 3 blocks from the hotel.

The breakfast was not good at all. The interior is hideous.

The hotel is situated in a quiet residential neighborhood. The streets are a bit deserted, and generally doesn't feel very safe coming back at late hours. The hotel itself is not easily recognized by cab drivers. The hotel property itself is well maintained. The staff/owner concierge does a good job suggesting travel options. The biggest plus is it is connected to the subway train system. good connections to airports and tram lines. If you are looking for stay options around the coliseum, this is a great option. We were a family of 4 lugging briefcases from the metro station to the hotel, in what felt like ages. But it really wasn't all that far.

This was really a great little hotel. It's tucked away and down a street, but once you get inside, it's really pretty nice. The rooms were small, and the bathroom was tiny... but that might just be my American expectations speaking. The room was clean and a short walk to the coliseum. And for the price, you couldn't beat it.

Hidden away on alley street but within walking distance of many sites in Rome. Our bathroom was an add-on to a balcony and in December was freezing cold. Room was warm and plenty comfortable. nice continental breakfast. Would recommend maybe a different room in this quaint hotel.

I must say this was a good price for Rome, however, my experience here was tainted by an overflowing shower that flooded our room. It is greatly located very close to a Metro stop, but it is not a very good part of town.

My wife and I had an unanticipated extra night to spend in Rome and so we were looking for a hotel close to the colosseum that we would be literally using for 2 hours of sleep before heading off to the airport. Pro: It's close to the colosseum. Cons: The area in which the hotel is located is a bit shady, but most bothersome was that the advertised "airport shuttle" is simply a "private" taxi that costs more than the standard 48 euros to FCO. If you understand that going into it, and accept that you won't find much cheaper than this, you're fine.

The hotel provided adequate services for the monies spent. The continental breakfast was good. Cappuccinos and espresso were made on request but were not advertised, the machine being in another room. The maid cleaned the room daily but rehung a dirty towel and did not leave a bath mat. The shower leaked onto the floor and the water had to be mopped with a towel. The staff was very friendly and provided two recommendations for eateries. One was very good, Pizza Palacio, and the other, Roma Anticha, was poor.

Great home feeling very clean family atmosphere even though small ordinary.

Id made a reservation for a room for 3 so that my son and I could have our own beds. When I arrived I was given a small room for two, with the explanation that we would need to move the second of 3 nights owing to "plumbing problems.". I heard from another attendant that we were moved due to booking needs. While the first room had a balcony, the second did not. Either way, my son and I had to share a bed, rather than each of hs having our own. The final attendant tried to pacify me with a somewhat lower rate for an additional night. I was so distressed that we left for that night and went elsewhere. Worst experience that I have ever had in Rome!

The hotel is located within a 5 minute walk from the nearest metro station and about a 15 minute walk from the Colosseum. Our hotel room was clean and comfortable. The room was small like most hotel rooms in Europe, yet adequate for the price and the little time we spent there. The rooftop patio was nice after a long day of sight-seeing. The only negative I have about our stay was regarding the WIFI. It had a poor connection and was very slow.

rOOMS ARE SMALL. BUT OTHERWISE GOOD. WE LIKED THIS HOTEL

Great value, awsome staff!!! I arrived 2hours earlier form the check inn time and since I was already there I was given a better room since they did not have one ready for me. 100% Recommended.

Not fancy, not flashy, but a good solid accommodation in a quiet neighborhood close to the Metro. Parking is on the street, but the meter cost during weekdays is 4 euros for 8 hours and the area is safe. The staff is friendly and helpful. Breakfast is continental with a few extras but is quite adequate. Beds are firm. The bathroom is very nice and the shower is fine but a little cramped.

Room was way too small for what we paid ,, the safety box did not work when we got there ,somebody had to come and fixed it , the remote for the tv was downstairs had to go and get it ,no fresh towel every day they change ,it every other day and if you have to leave your suitcase downstairs they charge you 2 euro per bag .breakfast was ordinary .location was not too bad ,we travelled for 2 weeks and this is the only hotel that we were desapointed with .

This hotel was in a lousy location. It is not at all close to the Colosseum, and it was an inconveniently long walk to Termini, the central Roman train station. There is a long, steep staircase into the hotel, and staff will not help with luggage unless you ask for it. Rooms are bare bones and small, with no amenities--our tv was not even functional. Breakfast was pretty spare. I'm pretty sure they served instant coffee, which is unusual for a country like Italy. If you're looking for an aesthetically pleasing hotel in a convenient location, this is not the place for you.

This small hotel is located on a quiet street and near a metro station. The room we got was on the small side but was very clean and well managed. Hotel staff were friendly and helpful. They do have a public computer for customers' use but it only has Italian version, so it was completely useless to us. Breakfast was included. This does save us time and money. The roof garden was cute. We would definitely recommend this hotel to our friends if they don't have a big budget.

It was good, the people were very nice and helpful and spoke good English. They had a person at the desk 24hrs a day. They did a breakfast in the morning and even helped us with reconfirming a day tour we had in Rome. The room was a 3 star but we understood that when we booked it. The room was plain but well furnished, The location was ok it was just off of Manzoni and within a 5 minute walk to the Metro station. It was a 15 minute walk to the Coliseum.

Good location. We walked to the ruins in 20 minutes. The staff printed emails for me, called a taxi for the airport. Rooms were small but expected. Good value. Free breakfast.

We are used to the big chain hotels. Booked this one at last minute. At first wasn't sure when we got there. But once we got there we really liked it. It's small (I believe 24 rooms) and so we had the roof patio to ourselves. Nice view. Really close to Metro station which is key. Nearby is a supermarket where we stocked up on snacks and water (.30 vs 2euros in the city). Restaurants nearby too. Breakfast was included as well as wifi which was nice.
