Mercure Roma Centro Colosseo

Recent guest reviews

We stayed there for 8 days and everyday was great. The hotel was clean and modern. The staff was friendly and helpful. The location is great and just a short walk to the colosseum. There are great restaurants within walking distance and a minimarts next door. Behind the hotel is a staircase that leads you to a neighborhood that is not touristed. A bus stop is right across the way that made getting around the city easy. We just took Roma Atac 51 or 85 to get to most places. Very easy to use, but remember the bus drivers don't have time to answer questions. I would definitely stay at this hotel again, not one problem at all. Request: have a small gym and get USB plugs for your rooms.

Location is perfect and the staff is very helpful but the rooms are very small and the Shower tile is full of fungus. We had two bedrooms and both showers were dirty. The tile lines were Black full of fungus. It was disgusting. Also, hotel tax was outrageous $16 per person per night. ($96 for 2 people staying 3 nights) That is pretty much paying for an extra night. They offered us a Mini Bar deal for $12 a day and we accepted thinking that the it was gonna be a nice treat, however mini bar only consisted of 2 bottles of flat water, 2 sparkling, 1 reg. coke, q coke zero and 2 carrot juices. Really? What happened to the cookies, peanuts, chocolate bar etc. Overall, I will rather stay at a different hotel.

We had a wonderful experience. The staff was very helpful and answered our questions with a smile. Our room had an amazing view of the Colosseum which was only a few steps away.

Let's start with the good. My stay was from November 2 through November 9, 2016 on the 4th fl The hotel staff was absolutely amazing! Specifically, Davide and Giancarlo were amazing. Everyone at the front check in desk was fluent in English which was very important to me as a solo traveler. The proximity of this hotel to the Coliseum was about a 4-5 minute walk. It is also very close to the Roman forum and major streets. The Trevi fountain and Spanish steps were about a 30 minute walk but very, easy to navigate. There is also a Carrefour Express (local grocery store) that is open 24 hours within a 10 minute walk. At the time of my stay the air conditioner was still enabled which made me really happy- I would set the temperature at 15 degrees celsius. Typically, European hotels cut the air conditioning off in October to save money. There are many smaller convenience stores and even a 24 hour bakery on Via Labicana- within 2-3 minutes of the hotel. The reason for mentioning this is because water is not complimentary at this hotel, there is a coffee maker in the room (along with teas and instant coffee) but no bottled water. There is a mini-bar inside the room where a 16 ounce (standard size US water bottle) costs 2.50 Euros. Breakfast is 16 Euro and was not worth it in my opinion. Overall, I feel that Rome is a must see for historical reasons, but the streets are filled with litter and there is graffiti everywhere. I'd stay at this hotel again if it was my first time in Rome

My stay was comfortable and relaxing, from the friendliness of the staff to the size and layout of the room. It was a real bonus to have free access to the internet. For those who like to walk, it is an extremely convenient location, from the Trevi fountain to the train station or even the Vatican, but especially to the Colosseum which was about a block and a half away. Lots of restaurants to experience throughout the narrow (and main) streets. To those persons who wrote in to complain about the small showers; this is Europe, adjust, I am not a small person but I adapted.

Walking distance to the Metrro and a rooftop view of the coloseum. Location could not be better.

over all it is a nice place. They have a great roof top bar and pool that over looks the Colosseum. A metro station is also really close so you can easily get around. Our room was large and clean. The rooms and hallways needed to be updated though, the carpets were all pretty worn and there were some markings on the wall. Really the only negative thing was that we asked for a car to pick us up in the morning and they never made that reservation for us so we had to flag a cab down after waiting awhile out side

Perhaps the worst hotel I stayed at throughout my trip in Europe. The Mercure Roma Delta Colosseo looks great on paper in terms of location to the Colosseo and also the Metro. However, our experience beyond that was terrible. Upon checking into our tiny room, we found broken stuff all over the bathroom floor with dirt. The drop ceiling in the bathroom also was hanging loose and the couple times we opened and closed the door it made a loud noise and seemed on the verge of collapsing. The front desk did immediately switch us to another room. However, earlier while checking in, we were told that the hotel was completely full. The 2nd room was no better. Once we rolled in with our belongings, we went straight to the bathroom to inspect it. Immediately we noticed there was no toilet paper and the trash bin was never emptied. It was filled with the trash from the previous guests. Also, the bed did not have any bed sheets as a comforter. We had to ask for it from the front desk. The room was extremely hot and suffocating because the air was turned off. We left one of the door keys in the slot so the electricity would stay on while we went out and dined. When we came back the room was pretty much the same temperature. Around 80 degrees! It was unbearable. The front desk said that we just had to leave it on for a while because it was a hot day earlier. We had left it on for 2 hours straight. Any normal, functioning A/C would have cooled a small room no matter how hot the day was. We were also told that since we were on the top floor the sun probably heated our room much more than the lower floors. Excuses do not cut it. Bottom line, the room stayed at around 80 degrees day and night with no circulation for our entire stay. This is unacceptable to any guest. If you need WIFI service, forget it. Make sure to bring your laptop and they will provide you with a complimentary cable connection. Otherwise, you will have to use their slow computer that charges you 35 cents Euro per minute. The pool on the rooftop is a joke. Nice to have to cool down in the summer heat, but it is really an enlarged kiddy pool. Also, be aware of using the pool towels. We saw a staff member hanging wet pool towels to air dry on the roof. Many of them were only partially wet leading us to believe whether they were just being air dried to be reused. So to be safe, bring your towels with you from your room. My suggestion, do not stay in this hotel unless heat and lack of cleanliness do not bother you.

(+)The hotel was close to the Colosseum. (-)The hotel was not close to the main train station, so if you have luggage I'd highly suggest getting a taxi from the airport. (-)The bathroom in the hotel room smelled absolutely horrible. My husband and I kept the door shut and held our breaths when we entered. (-)The room was small as well.

The room was a little small but it served it's purpose. Very close to the ancient ruins. Air conditioning doesn't work that great. Nice view from the bar on the ceiling.

The day I arrived an extremely polite front desk clerk asked if it was my first time in Rome. It was, so he gave me maps and booklets, told me where everything was and gave me clear directions everywhere. Every question I had, the whole staff answered with a smile. The breakfast buffet was fresh and had a great variety. My room was very clean and the bed was very comfortable. There were even days on my vacation that I grabbed food to-go from an amazing little place around the corner, a glass of wine from the hotel bar and relaxed in my room. The location could absolutely not be better! I had a great time!

Toured. Nice restaurants one block north of the hotel.

The conveniency of the hotel to the Roman sights was great. Walking distance to the Colosseo. The staff was friendly and accomdating.

Great experience, friendly staff thought they don't seem to know the concept of "taking the next customer waiting in line". Also, what staff says and what they do are two different things. They have a great pool/bar on the roof with a great view of the city. It was closed the day we got there due to weather. Asking wheyn it will open, we were told every day it would open at 8 pm. Well, no matter the weather, it did not open at 8 or at all except for the last day we were there. If the hotel tells a guest it opens at 8, then it should open at eight. If it may be iffy due to weather, they should say that.I was happy to take my money to another rooftop bar and not give it to the hotel...

This hotel is close to the Coliseum and that's about the only positive thing about this hotel. In the first room they gave us upon check in, the air conditioner didn't work (high 80's outside). So we asked for another room and the hotel staff showed up and told us there was another room we could "try" but suggested we go see that room before moving our luggage. The air conditioner in that room didn't work either. So they finally relented and gave us an "upgraded" room and while the air conditioner apparently worked, it was very weak and didn't cool much. We took this third room. The bathroom wasn't very clean and the carpets were old and worn and the room had a funny smell. We only stayed one night as we were flying out of Rome the next morning. Finally, upon check out, the person at the desk informed me that the hotel receipt was "missing" so they didn't have one to give me. What's up with that? After a wonderful stay at a fabulous hotel in Florence that was similarly priced (only 50 Euros per night more), this stay in Rome was a big disappointment.

Great location, warm staff, good dining... hotel rooms were very small, AC worked poorly, major street difficult to open windows (traffic and frequent trains). Great value but if you were looking for a 4 star experience you may be a bit disappointed.

Asked for non-smoking room and received a smoking room. Stains on carpet. Extremely small room. Furniture worn out that seemed to belong in a discount motel chain. Extremely small bathroom with an even smaller shower stall. Stains on bathroom curtains. Smell of bleach in hotel lobby. Extremely thin walls so that you can hear everything going on in surrounding rooms. No-where near a four-star hotel. Only positive note is its location near the Colliseum if that is what`s desired.

A great buy. Reasonable sized room with refrigerator and complementary boteled water. Easy walk to either A or B line Subway, Colleseum or Fourm. Great park next door and fun neighborhood to walk through. All in all a great buy.

This is a much better hotel for business than for tourists. The Colliseum is a short walk away, but all other Rome attractions are a long walk or taxi or metro ride from here. Internet access is 0.35 euro/minute if you use their computer. Full breakfast at 15 euros is pricey, but the cappocino and croissant at 6 euro is comparable to places on the street. Staff were helpful with questions, but a bit impersonal. Maybe too busy with so many customers. Check-in on a Sunday is problematic - had to wait until 5 pm for housekeeping to finish.

Pros: Close to the Colosseum and the Metro. If you are lucky you can get a view of the same from your room. Cons: Rooms are very tiny. The night staff is rude and unfriendly. The day staff is polite but not overtly friendly. The hotel is on the main road, so a lot of traffic noise

Dear Guest, Thank you for choosing our hotel for your stay in Rome. I am glad you enjoyed the location and found it convenient for your needs.
