Hotel Solis

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We stayed at the solis for 3 nights in August 2017. Great location but other then that, the hotel is very outdated and stale. The staff were good but the beds were very uncomfortable, the A/C needs to be better in such a hot place. The WiFi was also a very weak signal which is important for travelers. The continental breakfast was decent but the host was awesome. I wouldn't recommend this hotel until those little things were changed.

Beds are quite hard and need replacing. Woke with back pain due to their poor quality

Nice locations, walking distance to a lot of the visiting places. Internet access was very unstable and extremely slow. Breakfast was plain, just to get energy to start the day.

Quaint hotel with very helpful staff. Room was very spacious. Great location, just about 2 blocks from the Coliseum & steps away from some great restaurants. Breakfast wasn't anything great & the beds weren't very comfortable, but I would stay here again.

Room was small and amenities basic but the staff was very friendly and the location was excellent - 10 minute walk to the coliseum and across the street from the Forum

Excellent location and right in the center of the historical attractions. Staffs are very helpful and particularly Jenny. They all try the best to help you in anyway can. We will stay again in this hotel if we come to Rome again.

You couldn't ask for a better for a better location! On block away from the Collisume. Lots of restuarnts and shops close by. Staff was awesome! The room was outdated and beds were very hard.

The staff were all very helpful with one hotel front desk receptionist (young man) extremely helpful and very kind. Most of the staff knew fairly good English and were glad to help whenever they could. The breakfast was good and saved a lot of money by eating there in the mornings. The location was perfect walking distance to most of the major sites in Rome, just a stones throw from the Colosseum and Forum. If you are willing to get some exercise it is even worth the walk to the Vatican, about an hour away. There is no airport shuttle as the reservations suggested, but that is minor as you can catch a bus, train or taxi as you prefer. An excellent week in Roma!

The staff was very nice and all spoke enough English to communicate. The room was a little mildewy, but was spacious (for Europe) and the location of this hotel is AMAZING. I had read a few reviews that complained about the staff and about there not being an area to leave your bags while you tour, both items are untrue. The staff was nice and helpful, and there's a room where we left our suitcases and there were numerous other bags there as well from other travelers. That was nice, because we checked out at 11 and our flight wasn't until 8pm, so we got to sightsee without our luggage. Breakfast was pretty decent, considering it was included which is rare around there. Croissants, donuts, and cereal and rolls with cheese, cappuccino and orange juice. There are plenty of places nearby to get fruit and other items if you want more food than that. We loved having tv in the room with English channels! CNN and BBC. I would have liked wifi, but knew the hotel probably wouldn't provide it. They DO have a computer you can use in the lobby, and there is a restaurant with wifi across the street that is open for dinner.

My husband and I just spent 8 nights at Hotel Solis for our honeymoon in Rome. We were budget sensitive when picking a hotel and did not go through a travel agency. Hotel Solis was very honest with their website and we were pleased with our stay. The room has all the amenities we wanted. Breakfast was simple, but allowed us to eat before we embarked on exploring the city. The location could not have been better- we were close to a metro station, but were able to walk most places on foot, tons of cafes in the area. The staff was very helpful and patient. Neither one of us speak Italian and they assisted with getting a Taxi and other helpful info. We would stay here again when visiting Rome and would recommend this hotel to friends and family.

This was our first hotel during our first trip to Italy. We were really pleased with the hotel, location, and the staff. The staff was very knowledgable with the area and understood our concerns. We took in a lot in 3 days so we did not spend much time in the hotel. However, the hotel was in a location where we could stop in and refresh on the way to other sites. The trip to Italy and Rome in particular were wonderful, this hotel did not take anything away from our trip. If have ever had a bad hotel, you know what I mean.

Great hotel and location for the money. I shopped around on the internet and finally decided on this hotel. We arrived in the morning and dropped off our luggage in the hotel lobby and did not return until later that night. So, literally, we only slept there, and got up the next morning to go to the airport. We only had one day in Rome after our Mediterranean cruise, and dragged our kids to all the major Rome sites. We were able to walk a few blocks to see the forum and Colosseum. We could lean out our window and see the forum ruins. Restaurants and other necessary stores on this street, surprisingly quiet considering you're in the heart of Rome. Our only negatives were that the A/C in our room was not very cold as we are used to in the United States, but we were so tired, we just collapsed after a long day. The hotel also was not able to exchange money, but there is an exchange store on the same block. Nice staff and at 7am they have a continental breakfast room to start you off.

The hotel was very nice and we thought appropriate for a three star rating. It was small but this is not unlike most hotels that I've stayed at in Europe. The staff were friendly and willing to help, except that I had one run-in with a housekeeper that I think was just getting off of work and wanted to go home. I asked her for hot water in the breakfast area and she was fairly rude. However the concierge was very accommodating and helped me with the water immediately. The breakfast buffet was really more like snacks...pastries, cornflakes, hard-boiled eggs, and a variety of breads and the beverages were coffee, orange Juice, hot chocolate and tea. It was small but the quality was fairly decent. For the most part our stay was very enjoyable and you simply could not beat the location. We were not more than a five minute walk from the Colosseum s and right down the block you could see the Roman Forum. That TOTALLY ROCKED! Plus most in our area could peak a little English and were very friendly. The only real negative part of our stay was when we were checking out and were hit with the city tax that could only be paid in Euro (no credit cards accepted). that really angered me because if had known that upfront we could have planned better. It was a good thing we had the Euros on hand. I don't mind paying for it...I would have liked to have known about it. Otherwise, I do recommend the hotel.

this hotel was near the Coliseum and St Peter in Chains church as well as the Forum. I also took it since it was near a Metro stop. Metro does not go everywhere so we ended up walking alot. The 2 complaint i have are: no seating in room which was very poorly lit. Breakfast was very nice. Bed comfortable. Lots of restaurants on a street which is not touristy. Buses go to railroad or it is not a bad walk. All in all, i would recommend this hotel.

Very clean and remarkably quiet rooms for being located on a busy street so close to the coliseum and imperial forum. Centrally located and within walking distance to everything in the heart of ancient Rome and the Vatican.

Good location, unfriendly staff, tiny rooms, very slow WiFi (but cheap-7Euro for 180- minutes), very, very dim lighting in rooms, iffy A/C. Very small breakfast room.

The hotel has Wifi available but at 7 EU for 3 hours.

Hotel staff was extemely rude, treated you as though you were a burden and a inconvienience. Location more than makes up for it.

We were a few blocks from the Colosseum and the Forum! You couldn't ask for a better location. Oh and the local shops - for wine and cheese were great and don't forget the gelato! We stayed at another hotel also because this one was booked for the next weekend, very disappointed...it changed our whole experience in Rome... do not miss out on this great location and experience. Not to mention the rooms are large!

If you're fussy and looking for an American style luxury hotel, this probably isn't the spot for you. However, if you're looking for a comfortable, convenient and cost effective place to stay, this place is excellent. The only thing I didn't like was the unfriendly lady who tends to work the front desk in the afternoon. She likes to lay on the couch in the lounge and watch tv/talk on the phone, which makes things very awkward if you need something. She also begrudged us using the ground floor restroom, insisting it was for staff only, although there was no sign to that effect, no lock and no one else seemed to have any trouble with it. I don't think she quite understands the service industry. All the others on the staff, however, were friendly and helpful and I was overall satisfied with my stay. I plan to stay there again next time I go to Rome and would recommend it to my friends.
