This is difficult really as my Roman holiday was delightful so I don’t want any negativity really. Positives: it’s cheap, and it’s not the worst hotel I’ve stayed at. The cleaners were very efficient and did a wonderful job. It’s cheap. It was close to some quite lovely restaurants. It’s cheap. Breakfast was alright really. Did I mention it’s cheap? Negatives: it’s tired and could do with some love. The builders who were in started at 7am which sort of works as an alarm clock. It’s a walk into the city. The breakfast could do with some toast and decent coffee. The shower had a family of silverfish living in it. A kettle in the room wouldn’t go amiss. Sometimes you get what you pay for.

Was quite disappointed with the hotel. The welcome was ok, but when I asked the double bed to be separated into two singles, I was told I’d have to wait until the following morning... not the best when sharing with another guy! After some explaining, they managed to sort it straight away. The beds were firm to say the least, and the sound-proofing was non existent! Could hear everything from the busy street below all through the night. The lack of power points was very annoying, as we could only charge/plug in one thing at a time. The fridge didn’t work, and the shower was so full of limescale it literally poured down. Breakfast was extremely continental, and the coffee was revolting! Far too strong and tasted burnt, like it had been sat in the machine for days and just reheated. Not easy to start the day without a fresh cup of Italian coffee. Would I recommend the hotel? Probably not. But what more do you expect for the price?

A group of us stayed in the hotel for Italy vs England in the Six nations. Rooms are dated, but they served there purpose of being a clean and comfortable stay whilst in Rome. We didn’t spend much time in the room as the city is so beautiful. We did find the road outside to be quite noisy at night but not enough to keep us awake. Supermarket and Irish pub across the road. Plenty of restaurants to chose from around the hotel. All the staff we came across were friendly. The reception staff helped us to book taxis when required and arranged airport transfers for us (additional cost). Breakfast was ok not loads of choice but none of us went hungry. We ate in the connecting restaurant one night and the food was lovely and traditional for a reasonable price. I would stay here again if visiting Rome for a few days.

Not worth it. Hard beds and terrible breakfest. After walking around all day and feeling tired in the evening it was really disappointing with the hard beds.Would recomend to choose another hotel in Rome.Rooms were Also not of a 3 star standard in my opinion. They looked liked they had not been properly cleaned for months. Also wifi is terrible.

We stayed at this hotel for a week during January of 2018. The facilities are somewhat worn down. The Hotel could definitely use a renovation. The walls were stained with moisture in some places and the toilet seat was not properly attached to the toilet. The worst thing though was the heavy use of cheap deodirizer/room spray. The whole room smelled sour so we had to keep the window open at all times otherwise the smell was too heavy. The room could also be equipped with more power outlets as we were having a hard time charging both our phones, tablet and camera. Also the breakfast mainly consisted of cake and white bread, and the coffee had a burnt taste. On the bright side, the hotel has a 24 hour reception, which comes in handy for the late arrivals or early departures. The staff in general is very nice. We asked for a clothing iron, wich was brought up to the room within minutes (the clothing iron was equally as old as the facilities and had little effect on my wrinkled shirts). Also there is soap and shampoo, the house cleaning comes by daily. The area is good though, close to the main train station and within walking distance from Villa Borghese and Piazza di Spagna. Also there are some great supermarkets 100 metres from the Hotel. Overall, this is a two-star hotel in our opinion. But the price is equally matched.

Pleasant to stay for short visit. Very adequate sleeping facility. 3 star. Very basic. Clean and neat. Bring your own soap and shampoo. Sleep over only. Basic but good enough for a few nights. Well positioned for touring. Breakfast is very continental but adequate. Friendly people. No hassles. Clean. Good enough. Rome Central. Across the road from fantastic food facilties eg Puzza Milligusti - best pizza you ever eaten!!!! Ristorante la Cantinola has great owners. No effort to please. Saridinia beer is so nice. Red wine is top drawer.

Clean hotel Very basic but all that is needed when touring all day awesome pizza restaurants opposite hotel very reasonable and a supermarket close by. The breakfast offered is bread. .ham ..cheeses and cakes which also for me satisfying . Definitely not a longer than 2 to 3 night stay but stop over good enough

Good morning fellow Travellers, Normally I dont write a review but after staying at Priscilla Hotel I thought it was wise to warn you to stay away. I have been travelling for 3 months and have stayed in many hostels, two star hotels and three star hotels and I can definatly say over all, this has been the worst of my trip so far. When we checked in we got taken out from the hotel and placed in a hotel across the street where they could not speak english. Nothing was really communicated and we got told this was part of priscilla hotel. As we were staying 3 nights we unpacked and got set up in our room. The next morning we got a call that our room was ready across at priscilla hotel and that we had to be out at 12 and move to our new room across the street. What a hassle!!!! When arriving at our new room no explanation was given to why we moved and the room was certainly worse than what we were given previously. The bathroom had mold in it, the cleaning wasnt done properly and areas looked like they hadnt been wiped in months, the shower door was broken and you physically had to lift it up to close it, the carpet was all discoloured and the bed was like sleeping on a $60 dollar camp bed from kmart. I understand im paying a budget hotel price but i would not give this any more than 1 star. My 2 star in Venice was way better. Just Disappointing.

Nice people works in reception,but there is no information about visitors tax- 4 € per night-so we 3 persons paid 36€ :) Also breakfest-there is only one choice of bread,also one choice of meat and cheese...rooms are clean and nice.

Breakfast is the same everyday. Bread with ham and cheese, two types of juice which are really sweet. There is no fruit or tea in the morning, no vegtables.. It's just really booring! One morning we didn't have water in our bathroom. And the floors were dirty. You have to walk alot to the "famous" destinations like the Coliseum. It's just a bit far from a lot of things. But anyways the beds are pretty comfortable and pillows are also nice.
