NO ONE IS THERE TO CHECK YOU IN. My experience with this ill-run hotel was terrible and I'll explain why so you can look elsewhere. I stopped at the hotel 2 days in advance to tell them about my upcoming reservation, and to ask if they had availability for that evening since I arrived in Rome a couple days earlier than I had anticipated. Jerry, the man who checks you in, said that they had no rooms available that night. He then called another hotel he knows and asked them if they had a room for me. This was a nice gesture but the price was more than twice what I would be paying at I Giardini del Quirinale and I couldn't afford it. I politely explained that the price was to high for my budget and then asked, since it was getting late, if I could use their Internet signal to access the web on my phone to find another hotel since I would be staying with them in 2 days. Rather than simply saying, I'm sorry, it's against policy, Jerry proceeded to angrily rant about how there were video cameras everywhere, watching everything he was doing, and giving me the password would jeopardize his job. And when I say rant, I mean he got upset, wild-eyed, and seem tremendously offended that I asked this question. Since he was so mad, I said Ok, I understand, I'm not arguing with you. It's no problem and got up to leave. He then got even angrier, got close to me with an enraged face, and repeated what he said earlier about all the video cameras. At this point I was very nervous about his erratic behavior and left the hotel quickly. I went to a nearby cafe and accessed the Internet from there. I checked if I could cancel my upcoming reservation with I Giardini, but it was non-refundable. I discovered that the other hotel he had called for me had rooms available for significantly less that the price he quoted me, so I wasn't happy that the other hotel was going to rip me off (instead I found a lovely hotel nearby for 40 euros per night). I returned to I Giardini two days later since they already had my payment. I was hopeful that someone else would be there to check me in. To my surprise, there was NO ONE THERE TO CHECK ME IN. Not a soul. I rang the doorbell for 35 minutes. Nothing. Since my phone doesn't make calls in Italy, I dragged my luggage back down and found an office on the street that was kind enough to call the hotel's number for me. I then waited another 15-20 minutes for a young woman to show up and let me in. I asked why no one was at the hotel at check-in time and she said that she is a receptionist that works in another building and can't be in 2 places at once. She also explained that no one informed her that I was checking in that day. I was flabbergasted. Check-in is advertised to be from 2pm onwards, yet no one is there to meet you! I told her how rude Jerry was and how unhappy I was to wait almost an hour to get into the hotel. She showed me to my room, but for some reason she is not allowed to actually check you in with your passport - she told me to come back between 7 and 10pm to check in with Jerry. Honestly? I lost an hour trying to check in and then was expected to return to check in a second time? The hotel is on the far end of town so it is not centrally located -- going back to the hotel was not an option, especially since I had plans in Piazza Navona for dinner, quite a distance away. It's also irrational to me to expect a guest to check in twice, especially after waiting an hour the first time, nor is it disclosed anywhere. The following morning I had to submit my passport and pay the hotel taxes. As I left that morning, two women showed up who didn't have a reservation until much later that day. Jerry was oddly very accommodating to the point where he allowed one of the women to go into a room with her luggage to change her clothing and use the the bathroom. He also allowed them to leave their luggage there and was relatively polite, yet I was treated terribly. Last Words: AVOID at all costs.
This little hotel offers so much to love! The location is absolutely the best - you are able to walk to literally every sight in Rome without difficulty. Despite being in the center of the city it is nice and quiet because the rooms face an inner courtyard instead of the street. The rooms are SUPER clean and comfortable which is an exception in European hotels. The AC and free wifi was a godsend. Last but certainly not least, Jerry the manager that served us breakfast and answered our questions was so great. We loved are stay here and would definitely return! Highly, highly recommend!!!
Great little patio that was air conditioned which you need in Rome in July. Fairly easy to walk to many sites in Rome and easily accessible to Metro and good bus lines. We also could walk to the main train station, re: stazione. Nice breakfast and would definitely go back there as the rates are very good especially for the location.
THE PLACE IS WELL LOCATED IN ROME - FOR YOUR MONEY IS WHAT YOU GET AND I WOULD SAY MORE - THE STAFF THE OWNER AND A MALE ASIAN DESCENDENT DO THEIR BETS TO MAKE YOUR STAY AS COMFORTABLE AS´POSSIBLE - NEAR MARKET NEAR PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION RESTAURANTAS AND TRAIN STATION YOU DO HAVE TO LOOK FOR IT AS IS IN A THIRD FLOOR. IF ONE LIKE US WANTS TO WALT THROUGH ROME LIKE WE DIDI AND NOT SPENT ALOT OF MONEY IN A ROOM IS WHAT WE RECOMEND- THE BREAKFAST IS SIMPLE BUT WELL SERVED
