I do not know why shows 4 star hotel on the app... to me it only like 2 star

There was no wifi signal in my room, the toilet did not flush properly or did not flush at all sometimes, very poor TV signal (expect only 12 TV channels) and once you set the right temperature of the water in the shower, it would constantly switch from cold to hot in seconds without moving anything. After talking to 3 different people about these issues, I got a new room during my second day there; however, I had wifi signal in this new room, but it was really poor as well as the TV signal. I did not have the toilet problem, but the water in the shower did not drain down fast enough (it was clogged)

The Torino has seen better days but is still entirely respectable. It's location - close to Termini but not too close - is particularly useful for thosr wanting to explore the city but also desiring easy access to the train terminal. Breakfast offers variety, & when weather permits can be taken on the roof terrace. The staff doesn't present a fake & fawning happy face. They're good at what they do, & react in kind to how they are treated. This is Rome. The roof terrace is a prize asset for those inclined towards reflection.

A great place for the not overly-fussy to base your stay in Rome. It's not for those who wish to lavish themselves in self-aggrandizing luxury. It is for those who value the faded glamour of an aging but dignified & functional hotel. There are quite a few idiosyncrasies, but resources like the wonderful roof deck & supremely comfortable beds more than compensate.

Good thing the hotel was clean. Showing 4 stars, but reality just like 2 stars.

This is a good hotel next to the Train Station, Roma Termini (about 2 - 3 blocks). The wifi in my room was very weak. The breakfast is on the 7th floor which has a good view. The breakfast is ok. There seem to be a lot of good restaurant in the area, so it is a plus. The bathroom is kind of weird configuration but it is from an old design. The Train to the airport runs every 20 - 30 minutes and pretty much on time for $14 euro. Very cheap compare to Taxi, which is $48 euro.

It was an inexpensive hotel, and we got the value for what we paid. It is a two or three star hotel. Breakfast with a view of Rome was the best of this stay.

This is a clean and respectable hotel in a very convenient and safe location. Although the building and facilities have seen better days, for the no-overly fussy, it provides a great Roman experience. Breakfast consists of an extensive buffet either in the top-floor dining area or on the impressive terrace. The only caveat on the terrace is guarding your breakfast from the gulls hovering like vultures. The staff is friendly and helpful. This is my second visit and I've had no reason for complaints.

If you like small, cramped rooms with a less than friendly staff, then you'll love the Torino Hotel in Rome. I should've known what to expect when I contacted the hotel prior to our stay to ask for walking directions from the train station. I got back a short reply with turn left at the train station and walk 5 minutes. The 5 minutes was right, but the hotel is on a side street so we had a little difficulty finding it. At check-in we were given a very small cramped room with a broken air conditioner. When we contacted the front desk, they said they would have someone fix it, but when no one came after an hour, we asked to change rooms. Luckily, they agreed & gave us a nicer room with a little more space. The bathroom in the first room was so small and cramped that one person barely fit in it. The bathroom in the second room was larger, but the shower in both rooms had very little water pressure. After a 4 hour train trip to Rome, we were looking forward to a nice shower, but that didn't happen at the Hotel Torino. The concierge at the front desk was not very friendly or helpful. While the first guy on duty did change our room after we asked, the second concierge made us feel like a bother when we asked for a restaurant recommendation. He had a very short, get out of here kind of attitude. As for the hotel, while small, it is attractively furnished and clean. We very much enjoyed the breakfast buffet on the terrace. Not a good value for the price. Overall, skip this hotel.

the room was quite small and the beds were the worst part; they need to replace them asap. on the other hand the location was very convenient with a lot of restaurants near by as well as metro station and main train terminal Ternimi. I would rate this hotel as ** only

Nice location, very close to the railway station, only 15 mins of walking to Coliseum, the Monument of Emmanuel II etc. The staff were very friendly and helpful. They serve breakfast (included) on the rooftop and you may see a nice panoramic view of the city.

They didn't help bring any bags to the room. Staff made it seem like every question was a great burden to answer. Rooms were tiny. Wifi was overpriced. Early check-in was not allowed. Cigarette smell came in through AC when other people were smoking in their rooms. The AC was anemic.

Very good value - nice breakfast was included and the staff was very friendly. I asked for a late check-out and could leave at 1 PM without a problem. I asked for a double room just for myself because I was worried about room size and needed some space to work. The room had two beds but was still very cramped. The shower sprayed all over the place and the water was at best tepid.

I was traveling around Europe and decided to visit Rome for 3 days. I stayed in the Trino Hotel for all 3 days and was not impressed with the accommodations. This hotel does not rate 4 stars, possibly 3. The lobby looks great and promising but the rooms are a far cry from luxurious. It does have all the necessities but barely... for example the beds, the beds in our room were what you would expect of a roller bed (hard and the sheets were old)... although the bathroom is nice. The staff was extremely unhelpful. I asked for a map and they simply pointed to a counter with a ton of pamphlets. i then asked about the city and they looked at me like i was an idiot. Very unhelpful, the staff has no business in the hospitality business. oh yeah... the internet is only available in the lobby, actually only on the couch in the lobby... very slow. i'm sorry if this sounds really negative but compared to my other travels this was defiantly subpar. for the price LOOK elsewhere

The room was quite small, but perfect for my needs. The hotel staff was excellent. I did not care for leaving my key at the front desk each time I departed the hotel though.

A great place for the not overly-fussy to base your stay in Rome. It's not for those who wish to lavish themselves in self-aggrandizing luxury. It is for those who value the faded glamour of an aging but dignified & functional hotel.
