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!
The distance to the center of Rome is not bad, easy access on public transportation. Breakfast is good for a buffet. Staff is nice, gentle and friendly. Rooms are also comfortable and very quiet during nights.
Are you a boisterous teenager who loves nothing more than the satisfaction of knowing you are selfishly annoying the life out of everyone else around you as run up and down corridors, shouting and banging doors till late into the night? Then you will find your kindred spirits here. If that isn't you, avoid like the plague! Seriously, these brats were horrors. They gathered for parties in the room next to ours, but as it was a small two floor hotel, I'm sure loads of guests must have been disturbed, judging by the glares thrown the kids' way at breakfast. I have no idea why these little darlings aren't in hostels where they won't disturb honest, hard-working people who have paid good money to get a sleep, or what kind of miracle earplugs their teachers must be using. One night it was so bad, and they ignored our knocks and pleas to shut up, so we had to go down to reception to complain (no info in the room on how to reach reception by phone, it's dial 9 by the way) and the noise could easily be heard down there and so was clearly being ignored until someone complained. I know these large groups must be great business for the hotel, but it is not unreasonable to expect them to ask them to keep the noise down or leave. The next day the nice man on reception thought he was being super helpful by telling us we should have switched rooms. Sure we could have gathered our stuff and moved to a new hotel room for the 5th time that week, but I doubt that'd have solved the problem. I'm not sure we could have escaped the noise entirely, and even if we had plenty of other guests were suffering too. Apart from the other guests this hotel was alright for a budget hotel, but not exactly centrally located. It is a 15 minute walk to the Metro which is ok, but honestly having stayed in Rome before, decent, similarly priced accommodation can be found much nearer the attractions. I think the only reason for choosing this hotel instead would be to stay in a quieter area, but this is a bit of a moot point when you discover hundreds of rowdy schoolkids at your lodgings. So I wouldn't recommend.
Friendly and helpful staff; clean rooms every day; any time check in and out; number of small shops around to use; only a short walk to metro station. Overall a great stay and would defiantly go back!
