This place has two things going for it. One, it is a beautiful hotel with beautiful grounds. They work really hard to make it beautiful and they do a very nice job. The second thing is how nice the staff is. They are really really friendly. However they need some serious work. I have nothing nice to say about breakfast. It was the worst breakfast I ever had or seen at a hotel. It was scarce and poor. The silverware was dirty, the gentleman that was attending breakfast was nice but just didn't care. He made so much noise any aspect of breakfast was ruined. In our room, the air conditioning was not working. We asked someone to come look at it and they "turned it on" but we roasted at nice. I ended up splashing water on my self and clothes so I could sleep. It was not fixed. Additionally, we asked them to open the safe at 8am the morning after our arrival. They said they would be right up. Four hours later and four phone calls and a request to the house keeper for them to finally open the safe. I know it may not seem like a huge deal, but we utilize the safe and we don't want to spend four hours a hot room wasting four hours not touring Rome. So from then on out, the rest of the trip was not good when it came to the hotel. But I will say, the location is perfect for me. Not in the heart of Rome, so it was a nice place to get away from the busy of Rome.
Park Hotel Ginevra is really great place. Our room was clean, service and breakfast was also really good. We eat fresh croissant and fruits, you can choose many products to eat. I think that price and location is quite ok. I recommend this hotel.
This hotel is outside the city center--25 minutes away with no traffic, and maybe 45 with traffic. ( Tip: if you don't want to deal with the stress of finding a parking spot in the center of room, you would do best to search for a parking garage near a metro station that would take you directly to the center. ) The Wi-Fi is free and relatively good. I found the bed, with its soft mattress, quite comfortable. And the room it's self is modern and fairly clean--If you don't inspect too closely. I went down at 9:30 AM for the breakfast which ends at 10, on a Sunday. There was almost nothing left over--the bare minimum. There's a chance that it could be better in high season, but I found it very disappointing. As well, when we arrived, it was 3 PM, there was nothing in the hotel available to eat--not even a snack. However, a car can take you to a street of bars and restaurants less than a kilometer away. Even so, this hotel is a good option too expensive lodging in the center of Rome.
First of all it cost us €45 for a taxi from the airport to the actual hotel, then as soon as we got there we had to pay an extra €4 euro per night because of tax? which ended up being another €40 before the holiday had even started, i think it's rediculous them costing us €40 on top of the €300 i paid to stay there. The breakfast was absolutely awful, never seen anything so bad. Despite the awful times of starting at 7 and finishing at 8. They had nothing there,there was bread roll things, cheese, hand, off cereal, off milk and cake... No bread for toast, no cooked breakfast, literally nothing it was appauling. The room was okay, small but okay, the maid wasn't very good, all she did was make the bed, didn't swap sheets or give us new towels, we have to ask 4 times out of the 5 nights for new towel. They have a shuttle bus from the hotel to the metro which is good.. until you see the time sheet.. starts at 8 o'clock and finished at 10, starts again at 6 and finishes at 8.. they're such awful times. Not everybody wants to get up that early or come home that early where ever they have been. If you didn't catch the shuttle bus the walk to and from hotel to the metro was horrible, all up hill on the way back, about 20-25 minute walk depending on your speed. However the staff were lovely and very helpful with where to go and how to get places. If i was you.. do not eat in battistini, the food is atrocious. Although it's low prices i highly recommend spending a little more and having a better experience than we did. Also there are no english channels at all on the TV.
Room was ok, nice and clean even though the hand soap was oily! Staff not really polite. The location quite far from the metro station and the shuttle bus timesheet was ridiculous! In my opinion you'll need to rent a car to be comfortable in that place
lovely hotel, clean rooms and friendly staff. Shuttle to Metro station was handy too. Would stay here again if ever we return to Rome. Breakfast was excellent with a good variety. Reasonably priced great value.
We had a triple room with one double bed and a single one instead of a double bed., and that decreased the space in the room. What I liked the most was the terrace on the first floor with direct connection from the room. The furniture was modern and comfortable and the bathroom had quality plumbing. The hall and the reception are designed in a "roman style" with frescos on the walls. The breakfast had a variety of choices and the products were fresh. The distance from the center is a few metro station plus is a 15 minutes walk. The hotel has also a bus shuttle with fixed timetable which we used every evening. Before you arrive it's better you ask for specific details, because it isn't so was to find it.
This hotel is flawless, minus not having a huge bar to purchase midnight snacks I honestly can't complain. The staff were so polite and the room was cleaned spotless every day! The hotel does take a slight hill to reach but it's quiet and you can admire the beauty that is Rome. Will be coming back to this exact hotel and hopefully the exact room in time to come. Perfect romantic break!
We have just checked out from this hotel and I thought I would write this review. We decided to book this hotel as it was really cheap and for 3 night stay with breakfast included sounded like a good deal. Prior of booking the room I did a little research and we didn't mind staying a little further out. The hotel is indeed a little further out - last metro stop Basstini. From Termini about 15-20 min metro journey. From metro station you either walk 20 -30min or you take a taxi (around 10 eur) we decided to walk as we really wanted to see the neighbourhood. The hotel is in a very quiet and industrial location, they do offer the shuttle bus but only in the mornings and evenings! And it's not always 100% you gonna get on. We waited for the last shuttle bus by the metro that never turned up or left early due to the bus being already full. Now the room we got was extremely small for 2 people, the bathroom especially. There was hardly place for us to unpack, although the price we've paid we can not really complain. The room was clean and replacement towels soap etc was there all the time. Now, the issue I was having is with the breakfast!! As we only stayed for 3 nights we thought we will try what they had to offer so the 1st morning it seemed like they were short of staff, there was hardly anything for breakfast. Needed to ask for some bread as they clearly didn't take it out. The second day we arrived to the breakfast area at 9am - the same thing. There was no bread, no croissants and no fruit. So only what was there for us was cereal, crostinies with Nutella, lemons and cake for breakfast! The lady who was clearing the tables was clearly working hard and didn't even stop for a second. Although, management should really pay a bit more attention and make some improvements. Not sure if they are cutting the costs and not bring out the food or there isn't enough food made or ordered. Another thing that I found odd was that there was no 'do not disturb' signs? So one morning we were greeted by a cleaner at 9.50am on the day of our check out! The lady was very apologetic but clearly this would make the whole experience a little more enjoyable if you are not woke up at 9.50am. The gym area that was advertised was out of order - not sure why have they advertised something that is not there. There was not even signs of someone actually working on this. Therefore, I carried my gym gear just for fun. The check out was a little odd too - there was no offer of taxi booking or any kind of thank you or goodbye. So we ended walking with our luggages to the metro station in 30 degree heat as we couldn't flag a taxi. Perhaps should have booked this earlier but surely reception staff should offer such things? Or maybe I'm wrong? Not sure if I'll be booking this hotel again. I rather pay a little more and stay somewhere where I'll be greeted with a smile and offered a decent breakfast and amenities that are actually in place to use - but if you are not fussed with any of the things I've mentioned above - go for it! It's clean, cheap, tidy hotel in a very quite location!!
Stayed here while visiting Rome with my partner. The hotel states it's close to Battastini metro station (last stop on the A line) We got a taxi to the hotel from the metro station and it took around 5 minutes but cost €9!! The hotel offers a free shuttle throughout the day but if the times don't suit walking takes around 20, not the nicest walk as down back street and as a female didn't feel terribly safe. The hotel itself is very modem and room was lovely. We had a very small bathroom but was fine for us. We also had a small balcony but didn't have furniture? On the first floor is a great terrace with sun loungers and comfy seats. The breakfast was lovely, good selection of meats, breads, croissants, cereals, and fruit. This was included in our room rate. Really liked this hotel but is a little far out unless you plan to go out in the morning and not return until the evening. (No mid day shuttles) Would stay here again but just wish it had few more shuttle bus times!
