Radisson Blu es. Hotel, Roma

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I booked a weekend in Rome as a birthday present for my boyfriend. There are so many hotels to choose from in Rome and it can be a bit overwhelming. Ultimately I decided to go for the Radisson Blu as they have always been lovely in the past and I trusted a brand rather than going for a gamble. Sadly I made a mistake. This Radisson blu is not up to their usual standards. Firstly the location is poor if you want to visit any attractions. The metro is just five minutes walk away which is very handy but I would not feel so safe there at night. I felt fine walking around the hotel area with my boyfriend but wouldn't be so keen on my own. The hotel itself was nice enough but lacked a bar. The only offering was a bar in the Zest restaurant which felt more like a waiting room and lacked any atmosphere. Not to mention they charged 16 euros for two small beers. As for the room that was just bizarre. We only had one working plug socket. There are no drawers and no wardrobe. There are a couple of hangers suspended from the ceiling which is just odd. The TV did not have the channels advertised. The bathroom is some strange shower curtain contraption which means you can hear and see everything people do in there. When we arrived we were "upgraded" to a business room. Unlucky for us this really wasn't an upgrade. We were directly opposite the train station. The windows and walls must be made of the same shower curtain as we could hear every announcement on the train station. Be warned the noise of trains and announcements goes long into the night. All in all I would avoid this place. Thankfully I booked it through an online budget holiday company so did not pay full price. Had I paid full price I would be complaining. Very poor quality and very poor location.

Fantastic staff and service Food average Meeting room and support first class All my colleagues complained about their bedrooms Good espresso, breakfast was nice too. Good central location close to train station (which in Italy is good and bad)

This hotel is conveniently located within a short walk of Termini station, however this is not a 5* location. The streets surrounding the hotel are intimidating especially in the evening, however the hotel is located within a gated complex, so once at the hotel it was safe enough. We were advised by the hotel to use the metro station Vittorio Emanuele not Termini and we experienced no problem with this. The hotel has many facilities... rooftop swimming pool, spa facilities, bar and restaurant, however the basic design and standard of the rooms doesn't match our expectation of 5*. If you're the type of traveller who enjoys spending time in your hotel room, then this hotel isn't for you, however we found it functional, with friendly staff and easy access to the City.

Staff is all over the place in terms of hospitality -- friendliness and courteousness. Some people were very friendly others were on border line rude. The service depended on who you got on the other side of the phone. In general, however, most the staff was good. The neighborhood of the hotel was a little shady. The hotel rooms were small but on the modern side.

I was with my school friends was perfect good staff good food everything was good!! thank you ROMA!! i love when i traveling with my friends in italy!!! oldes city ROMA beautiful place with beautiful girls !!!

I walked to the hotel from Termini station and was not impressed with the area as it felt a little bit unsafe. On arrival, I checked in and was given a room on the fourth floor. The door frame looked like it was coming away from the wall and closing the door made the whole thing shake. The room itself was a decent size with a king size bed. There was no wardrobe, instead just a rail with coat hangers above the only suitable shelf for putting a suitcase which meant my clothes did not hang properly. The bathroom contained only a shower even though there was room for a bath. The shower itself was poor - I practically had to dance around under it to get wet, and the bathroom floor was horribly wet afterwards. The towel rail still had its Ikea sticker on it, despite the hotel marketing itself as 5*. Breakfast was served on the top floor of the hotel and outdoor seating was available which was nice. The food was just ok and I'm glad it was included in my room rate as I'd have been pretty disappointed if I'd paid €26 for it. This hotel is by no means 5*. Would I stay again? Yes, if I needed to stay by the train station and could get a very cheap rate. Would I rather stay somewhere else? Yes.

We just spent a few days a the Radisson Blu in Rome and are, once again, appalled by the lack of reliable standards within the Rezidor group, which is why we are once and for all leaving their loyalty program. Many other reviews state the convenient location, we found the hike to the Metro still long enough especially as the overpowering smell of urine along the way made the walk seem never-ending. By the way, we also tried the parallel street in hopes that there would be less of the unpleasant stench, it was just as bad. At least there is enough police to ensure basic safety, which was proved when we were lucky enough to stumble upon an arrest scene on the way from the metro to the hotel. The hotel itself was modern at some point, when open plan rooms with no bathroom was etc. were all the rage. I would have preferred more privacy, but style is a matter of personal preference. What is not, is the fact that a structure, especially one with so much traffic as a hotel, has to be maintained and upkeep. Especially when the structure was poorly built in the first case. The entire hotel looks incredibly run down, damaged wall paint jobs, loose sockets, shaky weird window frame, air condition that sounds like a bulldozer and cracking verandah floor boards. The breakfast buffet was fine for Italian standards were breakfast is just not an important meal and the staff was friendly enough. Still, this is one hotel where I would never stay again based on the low level of maintainance and, above all, the disgusting location.

Once a modern design icon in Rome the Radisson Blu needs urgent renovation. Many technical features in the rooms are not working anymore and materials are at end of live cycle. Also the staff seems not very motivated. I had booked 2 rooms and while leaving from Termini Station in the evening was asking for a late check out for only one of the rooms. Without any checking I was told that this is not possible. Breakfast buffets was ok and staff helpfull. All in all no 5 star experience!

We stayed here one night after a flight and before transferring to Civitavecchia the next day for a cruise. The hotel is in a slightly seedy part of Rome, but is very conveniently placed near the Termini Station in central Rome - acces is particularly easy (just a short walk) if you use the side entrance to the railway station. Hotel a fairly standard Radisson Blu. Perfectly comfortable & clean. Checkin was incredibly slow and the staff did not seem in a hurry to attend to customers. Otherwise everything was fine. Would stay here again if we need to pass through Rome and want to be handy to Termini railway station.

Loved the hotel, especially roof top bar and pool (though didn’t get chance to use pool). Room more than adequate and although on the train station side caused no increased noise or disruption. If you are visiting the hotel be aware that the layout of room/bathroom gives little privacy.....no problem for established couples/friends......location is fine for walking to main thoroughfares and sights like Coliseum. Would return if back in Rome
