Hotel XX Settembre

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The front desk staff went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed! Very easy to conversate in English. The only things were our view...we were looking at the apartments next door...so not much of a view, and the shower curtain wasn't long enough so when we showered, water got all over the floor. However, overall, the hotel was great for the price and location.

Location was great because it is near the train station and within walking distance to downtown Rome. Main hotel was full so we got put into a room that shares space with apartment renters. Front desk told us that our room was ready however it was not and staff appearded more annoyed then helpful as well as rude and unempathetic. Generally the staff was not helpful nor friendly.

Stayed 2 nights. Staff was very friendly. Was within walking distance to many attractions.

DO NOT STAY HERE!! They have just a handful of rooms at the actual hotel, and everyone else gets taken to a place across the street. Its basically an apartment with tiny bedrooms and there is NO WIFI there and the service is terrible by the staff. Again, DO NOT STAY HERE!!!

We arrived after dark and had some problem finding street names. My wallet was stolen at the station so beware!! Actually easy to find the hotel in the light of day. Staff was very helpful with our problem. Nice computer and breakfast. Good price.

My experience in Rome was AMAZING!!!!!! Loved the hotel, so convenient, close to main terminals n attractions, the staff was excellent. especially PABLO receptionist who was very helpful and kind. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS HOTEL!!!!!! happy!!!! :)

Bril. For the price it is awesome. Close to train station, literally 3 minute walk.

Very good location, confortable, clean and the personnel are very helpful

Just slept one night in the hotel, but overall, not bad experience, room was confortable, maybe little smaller, but ok

The beds were narrow and a bit hard. The wifi hardly worked at all unless you were in the breakfast room. Could not figure out the tv or the phones. Overall though we had a nice stay. The whole hotel was very clean!! Convenient to two metro stops. Staff was always courteous and very professional.

Worst Hotel Ever!! The room SMELLED LIKE DEAD RATS--we had to sleep with the windows open to let the smell out and I got sick (fever and all); the gentleman at the front desk (Philipino) was extremely rude; only two people could fit in the elevator (without the luggage); there was no Wi-Fi in the bedroom--we had to go across the street to get Wi-Fi; our room and breakfast was across the street from the Check-in building; we couldn't use the closet becase one of the bed was blocking it and there was no space to move the bed; there was no variety in breakfast--everyday was the same thing; we arrived at the hotel at 7 am and were not allowed to eat breakfast.

There was no available room when I arrived despite of my confirmed reservation. They transferred me to another hotel which was terrible. Not good experience!

friendly, helpful staff, walking distance to Termini and major sites, very good breakfast, floor weak, shower small, no screens on windows, bed comfortable.

15 to 20 minutes walk to the train station. My room was in another building just cross the street. There is a tiny lift in the building, but I always used the stair. The building does not smell very good, but I think it may be very common in old buildings in Europe. I like it having free wifi in through out the hotel. Although we are in different building, the signal was still very good. It is quiet too. A very good place to stay for vacation.

This hotel was conveniently located and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast that was included was well stocked and tasty. The only drawback was that the room was small.

If you're looking for a small but cozy hotel in the heart of Roma, the this is it. Don't expect flat screen TV's or luxury amenities - basic, but clean hotel that will provide what you need - shower and a place to sleep. Now, go and enjoy Italia. Arrivederci.

I had a hard time finding the hotel because it is on a small side street which did not appear on my 'Lonley Planet' map. (But that map was not very good anyway) I knew the general direction and stopped at another hotel to find specifics. They gladly helped me. The staff at XX Setembre were more than helpful, they were friendly, happy to chat about my day's adventures and taught me Italian phrases when I needed/wanted help (I will be sending them a thank you). The rooms are sufficient, (felt like my old dorm room) although the carpets have seen a lot of traffic and quite stained. I was aware of this ahead of time and brought flip flops, but everything was kept clean- bedding, bathroom, towels, even the window's curtain lining was taken, washed and replaced at one point during my stay. The breakfast was fine with fresh fruit, yogurt, breads, quiche, cheeses etc... But really the shinning star for this hotel is its wonderful staff! They are quite fantastic! I would stay again in a heartbeat. Another jem was the family run ristorante around the corner called Barbablu (recommended by the hotel). They spoke very little to no English, but were very loving and we acted out everything we needed. I only found out about them 3days before I left and ate there all three evenings. Delicious food and sweet people!

Good quality hotel, and really good value for money in central Rome, where hotels are traditionally expensive. Staff was very friendly and welcoming, especially Gianluca at reception, who made very good first impression and was always helpful and very friendly throughout our stay. Room was small but tastefully decorated and very cosy and had all you need on a short-trip (free WI-FI, safe, hairdryer, TV, phone, aircon, extra pillow and extra blanket and even bidet in bathroom). Mattress was too soft for my taste (I prefer hard ones but many people feel uncomfortable on hard mattresses). I, perhaps, should also mention, that room was not in the same building as reception, but just across the street in literally 20 meters, so no problems with that. Breakfast was included, not very great, but OK for the price of the room (a selection of pastries, oranges, apples, ham and cheese, and etc.). Location is great, easy to find and just 4-5 min walking from Termini station and Piazza de Republica, 20 min to Spanish steps. Will stay again.

The hotel staff was very very friendly. They helped me a lot during my trip but the rooms; the smeel on the carpet was awful. I needed to let the window open for 6-8 hours to be able to sleep. Floors are definitely need to change even if there's timber underneath it needs to change. Baths and WC were very clean because ceramic is something you can clean easily. Breakfast was good too but as long as those floors in the room stay, I can not make a return to that nice located hotel.Even just to sleep there, is difficult.
