Hotel San Giusto3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
I was told mixed reviews abt this hotel by my experience was pathetic. Firstly, the elevator was one floor up so me and my wife had to carry our luggage to a mini elevator. Then the room that was given to us didnt have the ac working. When asked they told us to change the room by ourselves. The room that was given was stinking so badly that we could hardly stay a night there. Next morning when we told manager our problems he literary stood up and gave me a staring look and told me to stay or leave.Worst ever experience and on top of everything breakfast served was the worst ever.
This hotel is located at the Piazza Bologna metro station and is very clean and well maintained. This hotel was well worth the $110 per night and if I were returning we would stay there again. The breakfast buffet was very good.
The best thing the Hotel San Giusto has going for it is its relatively convenient location. It is just steps from Metro line A, which runs directly to Termini station, the Colosseo and Circus Maximus. There is also a full-service supermarket (with a fantastic bakery and deli) just outside the hotel entrance, which was great for picking up snacks and bottled water. The room was TINY and very difficult to move around in, and while it had an ensuite bathroom with shower, it took over 5 minutes for the shower water to warm up. The room had a private air-conditioner, which is an absolute must if you are traveling in Rome in the summer. The cable tv is all Italian tv stations, with the exception of CNN in English. There was a good-sized fridge in the room, with plenty of room for non-mini-bar items.We had problems at the very beginning with the Hotel San Giusto, which were sort-of fixed, but it was very frustrating. When I booked the room, I made sure to reserve a double-bed room. And my [...]reservation stated on its face that it was a double bed room reservation. When I called to confirm, the hotel clerk said that it was a single twin bed room! After much arguing with the clerk [...], it was resolved. Until I got there, and they told me that it was a 2 twin bed room, not the double bed room I had booked. Also, despite the fact that [...]reservation states that check-in is at 1:00pm, they will not let you check-in until 2:30pm, which was a huge hassle. Every day there were guests in the lobby waiting to be able to check-in. The breakfast provided is plentiful, but average. They have bread, cold-cuts, cheese, sweet rolls, juice and coffee (often cold). Tables were often not re-set after earlier diners had eaten breakfast.While the location was convenient, I would not stay there again.
Worst hotel experience I've had in any country. I have never reviewed a hotel but my experience was so terrible at this hotel, I hope no one cuts their trip short in Rome, like I did, by staying here. Save your money, you are better off reserving a room at hostel. My a/c did not work the first night, I had to sleep in a friends room. They moved me to another room. Got in late and the a/c didn't work again. Went to the reception and they were extremely rude and said they could do nothing about it. Finally after to arguing with them they moved me to a room with spider webs and a tv that did work, but did have a/c. When I went to talk to them about the tv, they were again rude and said they could do nothing about it. Extremely unaccomodating. Never offered reimbursement for not being able to sleep in their rooms or moving me to a disgusting room. I've had better service at hostels. Everytime I was at reception they were arguing with guests. Save your money, book elsewhere!
Room was on small side with a good sized bathroom. It's just around the corner from the mertro stop which was very convenientm, blue line including Coloseum and Circus Maximus stops. Just outside the front entrance was a supermarket which was extremely convenient for all the things that are difficult to bring on planes nowadays. Make sure you have power converter for the 3 vertical prong outlets they use, lucking the hotel had one for me to use. Bar, tv-room, and internet were right at lobby and baggage check was atessentially the bar/internet area. Never saw any of the three used, only baggs left near the bar. Seemed like they were there so they could list them as amenities. They sell card with passwords for wifi access $5 gets 3 hours $10 gets 8. There was construction going on just outside the hotel entrance but the room are to the rear and I never heard any noise from the construction. All of the staff spoke english well. Tv had CNN and 4-5 italian stations/ I would say this hotel was perfect for what I needed it for. A bed for sleep, a place to shower, freshen up. If your in Rome to spend time in a hotel, this place is not for you, if your there to see the sigths enjoy the fine restaurants and have a place to stay nearby that is affordable and on the nicer side. this place is great.
