Hotel Rome Love

1.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Room was clean and tidy upon arrival and they did a good job of tidying it whilst we were out during the day. Room was nice and spacious enough for two people however not everything worked in it properly. WiFi was a bit slow and dodgy, shower worked and was hot although the stream was inconsistent but unfortunately neither the safe nor the air conditioning worked. Didn't try the TV but would put odds on it not working as well. Was next to quite a busy road so was quite loud, wouldn't recommend if you're a light sleeper. In all, for what we needed it to be; a convenient place to lay our heads at night it did that as it was a well kept room that was comfortable and not too far from the city centre (took 15 minutes to walk to the Colosseum). However for someone looking for a bit more comfort I would give this place a miss.

This hotel is a complete joke. It’s located in a dirty place and it’s not like a proper hotel. It’s located at the 2nd floor of a building. The manager is rude and unprofessional. The staff doesn’t even try to communicate with you. We also had to pay a city tax, and he didn’t even explain why we haven’t been informed before. The WiFi doesn’t work. You have to put your toilet paper in a “special bin” which is a simple bin with no lid. What a shame. and it’s very cold in the room, the beds are hard. The walls are thin and our room was next to the street so we could hear everything, and the hotel is very noisy. The lights don’t work properly, and neither do the plugs. Avoid this place!! I won’t come back and will definitely not recommend it

Slightly weird set up to have no reception or resting area. You get what u pay for and it was perfect for 3 lads who went over to watch Italy 🇮🇹 v England 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 at Rugby. I would not take my wife there as it not exactly a romantic hotel as the name may be interpreted. Shower was functional but needs a new shower head. Toilet seat landed on the floor when lifting up for a pee. Got stung for extra €9 each on top of the booking price that allegedly already paid tax. Room 502 was clean, tidy with clean towels everyday. No tea or coffee facilities. Staff have limited interpersonal skills however they were polite.

Even with GPS it took us 15 minutes to find the hotel as it's 2 floors up with little signage. Elevator is super tiny and there is no lobby just a reception desk. Run by Chinese that speak little English and are not friendly. Rooms are small but reasonably clean. Bathrooms are updated but also very small. The AC does not work very well and the staff turns it off every day when you leave so you come back to a sweltering hot room. It was 105F the week we were here and our room temp would not go below 85F even with the AC on. Also not a very good area of Rome with many immigrants and panhandlers on the streets.

A friend and I stayed at this hotel for two nights on our visit to Rome. Worst idea. Hotel was dirty, room had an awful stench to it, air con was written in some form of Asian symbols, beds were as hard as they come and we had our drinks and snacks stolen from the fridge in the room and off the table that we had got from the supermarket the night before. Also left some edibles from other countries out so they wouldn't melt in my bag and those were stolen too. Alcohol also gone. When I called the hotel to inform them what had happened all I got was Italian when I know for a fact that they understood me as they kept replying to what I was saying in Italian And accidentally slipping up letting a few English phrases go along the way. The entire time we were there the reception staff spoke perfect English. The fact they they would not even acknowledge me speaks volumes about the place. Area is also dodgy and we had staff question us every time we were going out about where we were going. Most of the time when you went to reception to give back your key when you were going out they stumbled out of their room where they had been relaxing or sleeping. I would never recommend this place to anyone. Please don't waste your money and precious time In Rome on this joke of a place.

The hotel is located near Termini which is not pleasant nor safe especially at night. Staff are rude and unprofessional, the girl at Reception was on the phone the entire 10 minutes we waited to ask her a question about a train station she just kept circling the name of the station, we were so shocked ended up leaving without her bother to try and help. We also needed a cab at 2am and the guy assured us he can get one 30 minutes prior by just seeing him but when we rang the bell he had to crawl out of his room waking up and leaned on the counter half asleep and at the end told to walk to termini station which sounded like a joke and find a cab ourselves. The room is a dungeon like place with bared windows overlooking staircases located on residential apartments. the bed doesn't even have sheets and there is a dirty sink and oil-stuck hood in a stuffy room. In conclusion, don't bother or waste your money. keep looking and you will find something better value with the money you pay.

I found it weird that the hotel was placed on the second floor, dated but clean and located in a good spot, in a walking distance to most popular tourist destinations. The triple room was very small, with only a bit of space to stand around the beds. We did struggle considering that we had 3 suitcases too, not much space left to walk. Don.t recommend paying for breakfast, it was provided every morning by the next door coffee shop which was tiny and always crowded, with no place to sit (only 2 tables), so you'll have to stand. Plus the market downstairs and the park in the front of the hotel felt very doggy, so be prepared to see suspicious faces all the time. We were 3 girls visiting and didn.t feel confortable at all...

I emailed this hotel prior to booking to confirm they had a baby cot and kettle ( for making baby bottles) available for the dates I wished to book. They replied quickly and assured me both would be in the room upon arrival. Neither of which were there. They then argued that I did not book a cot & in fact they didn't even have them at the hotel until I produced the emails. I returned to my room in the evening to find a BROKEN travel cot, to which they had no replacement. Not only was this terribly bad service it was also a safety hazard for my 5 month old son - the hotel staff could not have cared less. My baby had to sleep in his pram for the duration of our stay and I had to ask twice again before the kettle was produced. The window in the room did not close fully and therefore it was freezing at night. Had I have been able to use the travel cot my baby would have been directly under the broken window as there was nowhere else in our allocated room to put it. There was no hot water for the shower or to wash our hands by 8am in the morning. When I asked at the reception desk they said there was none available at this time and I could try waiting at least another hour with no guarantee that there would actually be any. Hardly what anyone expects to do when they've come to see Rome. The receptionist is clueless and his answer for everything is 'wait and speak to the manager'. The manager was not much better and was unimpressed that I had emailed the hotel group email address - which is the only contact details provided- concerning the broken cot in my room. There were dirty pillows and dirty towels. I would never stay here again and I would not recommend it even to someone travelling alone and on a budget. I've stayed in much nicer hotels, which had more approachable and helpful staff.

A correct hotel in a very good location. Dont expect nothing more than a room and simpathy. If you want to be in the streets to know the city, this is your place. Dont be afraid of your first impressions of the building.

Very nice and safe hotel to stay at, perfect location only 15 min walk from the colosseum! Friendly staff. Nice big clean and tidy rooms too, only problem was it's classed as a B and B and didn't get told about the breakfast options
