I Giardini del Quirinale0.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
I arrived in Rome after a long flight from the US with another teacher and 8 very tired high school students. We dragged our bags to this B and B. There is no outside signage beyond a tiny label next to a doorbell that reads "IG!ADQ". We had been told that there was a Chinese restaurant next door and since there was, we felt we were in the right place. We rang the doorbell and there was no answer at all. The door opened and someone was coming out so we all scooted in. There was a man at a window (who was not associated with the B&B and he told us to go to the second floor. When we got to the second floor, we knocked on a door and a woman told us to go to the 3rd floor. There was a door with a sign that read "Hotel i Giardini del Quirinale". We knocked on the door and no one answered. After some time, one of the students tried the door knob and it was open. We went in and there was NO ONE there. The place looked like it had not been cleaned in some time and the keys to the rooms were are laying on a desk. We went into the rooms and the beds were unmade and the bathrooms were dirty. We waited over 1 hour for someone to show up but no one ever did. We contacted our travel agent and she said she would make some calls. Apparently the person who was to work that day did not show up and didn't tell anyone. We finally did get into our rooms (which were on another floor) but the man who took care of us was quite rude and did not bother to tell us how to get into the building from the outside or where anything else--like the breakfast area--was located. Don't be fooled by the photos this place has on their website. That site was done by someone who really knows how to manipulate pictures to make things much better than they seem. We finally met a man named Jerry who tried to make things right but by then it was too late. And the final insult was that they turned off the hot water AND the wifi at midnight! We had students in the shower when that happened.
My husband and I had booked an airport pick up. It did not happen. We booked a cab and got down at Quirinale hotel, only to be told that we have reached a wrong place. Our booking is for some place in an adjoining thin street. We start hunting for the place... unable to see anything. We call on phone and the person directs us to a Chinese restaurant and says he will open the door. So this place is some nondescript place with no signs outside... god alone knows how one is expected to find it. We reach the room, only to be told the AC is not working and the engineer has been trying but was unable to fix. Why on earth we were not informed is a mystery. When we protest, the guy says he can take us to another building where there is one room -- no other room available-- but that room is small. No option, we trot down, across the street to another building with no sign on it. Mercifully there are lifts! We reach the room--- it is probably meant for single person use, difficult to imagine how the bed got in!!! Could not get thinner!! Most up professional. We pay for a good room to be socked with this room. Beware of this B&B!!!
I will begin with the positives as the bed was very comfy and it was clean. The downside was you could hear the next room as if they were in with you. Also there is no sky tv as they state. I queried it and he said not in rooms only at breakfast and that was only on once during our stay. Breakfast was ok ish lukewarm eggs and bacon but nice croissants, also states breakfast in the terrace? Don't know where that was!!! It is in an apartment block so not actually a hotel entrance very confusing as we thought we had been dropped off at the wrong place, until a nice local explained. Just one more very valid point, myself and partner are just average build, if you are on the large side don't think you would squeeze into the shower cubicle in our room, mimosa, it is tiny. But I suppose for what you pay its adequate just need to guarantee what they offer. . Two nights would be enough in this hotel no more!
Hotel is located in area not far from the bus station but well oriented, have pleasant staff, wonderful breakfast site and kitchen any time. Simple but fresh and sufficient place. Breakfast was very delicious. Available any time You arrive. You will be guided with maps and help any time.
This hotel is a great choice! We felt like we were at home! Good job! The breakfast was delicious and the room was very clean and tidy. Great location, only a few minutes away from touristic attractions.
This place was a great bang for your buck find. It was very small but had everything you needed to relax after a long day out (except no English tv stations). It was a 30-40 minute drive from the airport, courtesy of the amazing pick up service the B&B offers. For free. There is a Metro station about 5 minutes from the B&B however; I walked everywhere from the B&B. Approximately 15 minutes to the Spanish steps. 25 minutes to the Trevi fountain. 40 minutes to Piazza Navona and the Pantheon is 2 minutes from there. The B&B breakfast room is very small, as is the food selection but what is there is okay. Cereal, toast, yoghurt, croissants. I never had any of the hot food so can't comment. The only negative things is that the rooms said they have sound proofing. They don't. When the rooms next to mine flushed their toilet, it sounded like it came from my rooms bathroom. You could hear each cough or sneeze. Slightly annoying first thing in the morning. Check out was strange as there was no one there to check me out so I just left my keys on the table but all in all I was happy. Their email responses to enquiries is also very quick and helpful!
A very clean hotel, in a great location, the historical center is in walking distance, very polite and friendly personnel (mostly Jerry), very good and fresh breakfast with omelette, bacon, sausages, fresh orange juice, croissants with chocolate etc., the free transfer was an additional advantage, we had complementary coffee whenever we wanted, nice and renovated rooms with an amazing bathroom (new and very clean).
We were originally booked in with BelleSuite the sister hotel of this one. When we arrived there we found out the hotel was closed for reservations, things could of got really uncomfortable but Daniel was most empathetic of the situation and our travel company not passing on the message. We were taken to I Giardini and we absolutely loved it. Have a couple of miscommunications when we moved rooms due to our bags being locked away, but we got them back safely. We were taken to the airport by a free shuttle too. Free breakfast and WIFI. Out of the four hotels we stayed at across Italy this was a favourite!
Small hotel, bit noisy, but ever so friendly staff which makes up for all of it. Free airport transfer is grant, with the acknowledgeable Paolo. Fresh towels every day. Breakfast is small but very sufficient. Even when trying to run of at 6:30am for a tour through the Vatican we were stopped by the breakfast staff which insisted on us having breakfast and coffee before leaving. Bless him. Could deff recommend this hotel, that feels like a small family owned business on convenient walking distance from many points of interest.
This is a small bed-and-breakfast centrally located in Rome, but in a quiet side street with little noise. One of our rooms was very spacey and the other a bit smaller. The staff was friendly and the service very good. They served a complimentary breakfast with a good variety of food, including fresh fruit and press-your-own orange juice. If you e-mail in advance, they also offer free transfer to and from the airport, which worked very well for us. The internet connection was excellent. The air-conditioning wasn’t super-effective but works OK if you withdraw the innermost curtain that seemed to be confusing the thermostat. We found it easy to walk from the hotel to lots of the best sights, which saved a lot of time on buses or metro. Great place to stay!
