Hotel Osimar

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

My husband and I recently stayed at this hotel. Travel connection is good, get a 61 bus from around the corner to the metro or switch at Porta Pia for 62 bus which takes you to many of the landmarks before travelling over the river to Vatican City. Only struggle is at night when bus stops don't stand out on your return but if you get off at the square on your way back, its a v short walking distance. The hotel itself is fairly basic but all essentials are provided - towels, spare pillows and blankets. Breakfast is good, no hot food and there's plenty for all, depending on other residents. Staff is welcoming and very helpful. I would consider staying again.

Hotel ok room nice staff very friendly and welcoming had no problem getting to places as we like exploring and figured out the metro in no time visited the colosseum,Vatican City 🌃,The Sistine Chapel and The Trevi Fountain.

First of all, it's not that far out of Rome at all. Besides there is a bus stop just outside for £1.5e that takes you anywhere into Rome. Half the fun is using local transport. Had no problems at all. Hotel itself was basic, clean, tidy and decent breakfast, usual continental with teas and coffees. Had a standard double room or two twin beds actually pushed together but had double sheets etc. Bathroom had a good shower, only niggle about the room was the walls were paper thin ! Could here next door once they got back in each evening, thankfully they fell asleep quick. I can see why this hotel maybe construed as marmite for some, its a tad out the way, very basic rooms, and with being English we look for English speaking TV and tea and coffee making facilities, sorry not available here...but didn't bother us.......but for £40 a night with breakfast, offering transport into Rome for £1.5e absolute steal. Rome itself is so beautiful and surprisingly cheap, coffees in the city for £1e ? Pizza pasta for £6-10e it really can be done on a budget should you wish, though there are many fantastic places to go and eat and drink. Trevi fountain, Colosseum all are a must....Would I stay here again, 100% yes, reception very helpful too.

The staff is by far the best thing about this hotel. Everyone is so kind and helpful BUT I CAN never stay here again. I have spent so much on Uber's the 5 days I was here. It's far from EVERYTHING... even the metro is a 15 min walk assuming you don't make any wrong turns, airport was over an hour away and cost about 140 USA dollars in taxi. Ubering to places like colosseum or Vatican City was about $50. Great service and room service 24/7 was very good though.

Was pleasantly surprised, nothing was too much bother for the staff. Room was fine, breakfast was ok, and best of all the area was very quiet BUT very safe. We sat at one of the local bars outside and it was very nice. The No. 61 bus goes into the center from 100mtrs away, and only E1.50 each way (the hotel sells the tickets).

The hotel is clean enough. Very basic rooms. Cannot recommend this hotel only due to the fact that it is too far from center of Rome. 15 minute walk to metro station (with cases in the 30+c heat is too far) then 4 stops on metro. Do not have the lunch or evening food as it is microwave meals!. Directions from metro station to hotel: Take the Vli xx1 aprile exit from Bologna metro. Then keep going straight until you exit the metro station, you will see hotel laura on left side. Walk for approx 450mtrs, turn right past fancy building Gardia di Finanza, into Via Famiano Nardini for about 190mtrs. Then left at Via Cesare Rasponi for 65mtrs then dogleg left then right at little square by petrol station to your left into via Oreste Tommasini for 280mtrs then left into via Cesare Rasponi hotel is on right after about 30mtrs.

I would not rate this hotel as 3 star.. 2 star would be more appropriate. Very basic hotel with slight cleanliness issues. Not very accessible. Area is quite residential also and about 40 mins away on metro. Very dated rooms.

rooms are clean and accurate as you can expect. Breakfast is in line with these kind of hotels. Personnel is warm, multilingual and sincerely kind. You get from them good information on how to reach any place.

The best thing about our stay at the Osimar were the staff. Everyone was helpful, patient and obliging – nothing was too much trouble. Federico and Luis added a personal touch to the service. The rooms were clean, comfortable and functional and it was really easy to reach the centre of Roma via the metro. I would definitely stay there again.

I don't normally write bad reviews but feel I have to on this occasion. Firstly the hotel is very hard to find and our taxi driver from Rome Station had never been to this hotel before. He spent a quarter of an hour just driving round the area trying to find it and asked about ten people before he hit on one that knew where it was, he wasn't in the best of moods after that. Once we arrived at the hotel we were marched across the road to an apartment block that was not part of the hotel (it was a proper apartment block with families living in all of the apartments). Seems like the hotel had bought an apartment and divided it up into a few hotel rooms. The walls were so thin it was an embarrassment listening to others use the bathroom and we tended to whisper so as people didn't hear. To get to this room you were given three keys to three doors that were covered in major locks. The last door into the apartment had a door handle that came off in our hand the first time we used it. There was only half a roll of toilet paper in the room, the television had no English speaking channels (not even BBC News), the room was dusty.The Bathroom was OK and the sheets were clean. The WiFi had the most complicated password that consisted of about thirty digits, numbers, letters, upper and lower case and was really frustrating to enter into any device (were they Noughts or Zeroes, ones or Lower case L's etc), Looking back I am amazed we stayed there but we are not really complainers so just stuck it out. I don't know what the other rooms are like but would avoid this hotel if at all possible. I could go on forever with this review but will stop it there as I am sure you get the picture by now!
