Hotel Repubblica3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
We arrived and the room was good for the price. It's close to the train station which is what we wanted. The room had no air conditioning even though it is advertised as having it. Is a building wide system and is not working. When I asked the staff they shrugged and said that they can't turn it on because other people would be cold. It's like 28 out. Very unhelpful staff. Also the wifi is very weak and spotty. Room is ok for the price. Location is great, which is the only thing going for it.
We had three people, but reserved a room for two. When we showed up, we asked to add a person and they doubled the price for the same exact room. I didn't think that was fair, but it was late and we needed a place to stay. The room itself was quite nice, we had a great view, and made it quite worth the cost, but the service by the daytime staff wasn't very friendly at all. The night staff was very nice.
This hotel is a quick 7 minute walk with luggage from the main train station. Perfect location and close to everything. Great full there is an elevator , But it is very small. You have to back in if you are wearing a backpack because you won't be able to turn around. My room was not clean. I found 3 hairs in my sheets, and my sink backed up every time I used it. The shower is so small, I had to leave the door open just so I could move my arms to wash my hair. There was no toilet paper in the room when I arrived. I asked for it, and the lady at the front desk asked if I wanted the toilet paper now. Of.course I did, that's why I was asking. The breakfast is canned fruit, rolls with mortadella and processed cheese. I would not recommend this place other than the location. If you can pay a little more for a nicer place in the same location , it would be worth it.
Visited in April 2017, stayed for 6 nights. Perfectly comfortable location. Close to everything one may need in Rome. 10 min by foot from Termini station. The stuff was perfect: any of our desires was full filled right away. Breakfast: cheese, ham, muffins and etc. Tea, coffee. One important thing to all who is going to stay there: Please, close the lifts door when you leave it, other wise it will stuck on your floor and others can't use it from another floor. Thank you :) Looking forward to stay there again.
Accessible location, great daily cleaning, all neat and tidy. Just what we needed for somewhere to sleep and do basics. Wouldn't have wanted to spend any more time there than this though. Room was hot but Aircon made it bearable. Breakfast was fine by not very diverse. Poor environmentally - no recycling etc.
I hate to give money to businesses that treat you like a pain, so I can't really recommend this one. The room was so-so. It was quiet, which is my highest priority. The location was good, the breakfast was good, but most of the staff is hostile. I walked into the wrong room in the kitchen because I couldn't find the coffee and I got yelled at by the kitchen worker. I mean, yelled at like I walked into her private bathroom. Geesh! The could be heard arguing with a co-worker during breakfast and was slamming things around. Is there no word for customer service in Italian? Two different front desk clerks were also rude. One quiet snarky about the payment. Later she was making out with a guy on the sidewalk when I came back.. I guess I had interrupted her private messaging or something. The other, an Asian woman, glared at me for basic questions. Like she had seen my type before - a paying customer type?
The only thing going for this hotel is where it is situated, apart from that I wouldn't bother! Asking for an extra toilet roll for my room seemed a crime and I was told to buy my own as it was 21:00pm at night, last time I checked diarrhoea happened at all times of the day...breakfast is cereal, bread, cheese and ham and as I'm not that fussy it did the job for me, basic but ok, room decor needs updating but are averagely clean! Suppose you get what you pay for yet I still expect a bog roll thrown in for the price!!!
So, my first impressions of the hotel were okay, however, the card machine at the front desk had a problem with my card, so I had to go and get cash to pay the tax balance. Not a problem. Then the room. It was cosy to say the least. It was basic but enough for the 4 nights I was staying. Nothing too fancy, but then I'm not the kind of person who spends a lot of time in the room, so it wasn't so bad. Until I took a shower. The shower door fell off twice and I had to put it back on the runners, and even when it was on the runners, there was several holes in it, which meant that when ever I used it, the entire bathroom flooded. If you're banking on using the wifi that the hotel offers, don't bother, it doesn't work. I explained to reception that I was having a problem with it and they told me to come back in the morning. I didn't bother, as there was a nice bar across the road that serves great beer so I used the wifi there. I was mostly satisfied with my stay here until the last night, when my card stopped working, and when speaking to the front desk I was told to come back in the morning and someone else would sort it for me - although they did send someone to my room a few times to let me in. The staff here weren't great. It was all very matter of fact and 'well that's just the way it is.' Which was a bit disappointing. There was however, a young chap who seemed to be in charge of cleaning the top floor who was very nice, and was helpful when the key stopped working - he seemed to be just about the only person who took any interest in the hotel. Don't bother with the breakfast. The coffee is dreadful and the food was rather stale - I get the impression they just fridges things from previous days. I give this a two star because although the utilities were not utilisable, it was mostly clean and I felt safe in the room and didn't fear for my things while I was out.
Shabby looking hotel wasn't too concerned at first as we'd only be sleeping there, room and bed was clean and then I walked into the shower room!!!!! Mould all over the walls behind toilet cistern above shower nightmare!!!! Unfortunately we had to stay there as due to the rugby everywhere else was fully booked!!! We didn't see any staff apart from the night we arrived and we didn't eat at the hotel either!! But on a good note it's slap bang in the middle of Rome
The hotel is very very old.The breakfast is not good.I want but i can find something good to tell you. The room service lives the towers outside the door downstairs the floor 🙈never again in this hotel
