The Good... - Very helpful and friendly staff, particularly given our Italian was limited to buongiorno and grazie. - The location is just 3 short blocks from Rome Central station and walking distance to many of the sights, although we did catch a taxi to the Vatican. - Our Superior Double Room Terrace was beautiful, oozing with Italian charm. The semi-private courtyard greeted us with jasmine and roses. The not so good... The shower was impossibly small; We booked on expedia and there was a problem processing the payment; this then resulted in a series of painful international fund transfers - not fun. Overall however a lovely, very 'Italian feeling' boutique hotel in an awesome location.
We had a nice room with a big terrace. The location is good, most places are in walking distance (e.g. Colosseum is 15m, Vatican is 1h away on foot), and it is next to Termini train station from where you can visit closeby cities e.g. Naples with the high speed trains. There are nice restaurant nearby, you can have great breakfast just down the corner.
Very centrally located by the train station. We arrived in the evening and passed by many restaurants before we came to the hotel. We didn`t have any problems finding the entrance as we had received an email with description of where to go and what to do. The reception is on the first floor, but the door was open and the receptionists waiting for us. He was nice and helpful and showed us our rooms. One of the rooms was in the newer part of the hotel and it was very warm there. The other rooms were on the other side of the corridor. Rooms were medium sized and clean. There was a warderobe, fridge, table with refreshments and even a safe. We felt safe in the hotel and the area around it didn`t seem dangerous. It was not an usual hotel with reception at the entrance, but it was fine. We also had access to a big terrace where we didn`t spend much time as we were out most of the time.
The location of this hotel is great. Nice and close to colosseum and super close to the train station making it so easy to get to from the airport. The rooms are big, there isn't much of a view from most of the rooms but sitting out on the roman terrace at night is lovely. Other travellers have commented about the safety and I have to say it felt very safe. There's a big door where you need a fob to get in first, then there's another door on the level you're staying at which requires a key and then there is the key for your room,I'm not sure how it could be much safer. Do not waste money on the breakfast they offer, it's a tiny piece of super dry toast, a boring croissant and coffee/juice. Instead go to one of the bakeries and by it fresh, cheaper and much much better.
I did recently stay with here, but only for 1 of my original 4 nights. When we arrived at the hotel, we found the large wooden doors but had no instructions on how to enter. After a couple minutes, someone else walked up and opened the door so we followed him in. He went to the elevator and went up. We waited for it to come back down to go to the second floor. We did not have a favorable first impression as the first floor was really nothing more than an alley. When we walked into the Roman Terrace, we looked around while we waited for the couple in front of us to finish. It appeared as though the Roman Terrace was only 5 rooms(?). Soon the gentleman finished with the other couple and greeted us. I was a little put off by the t-shirt he was wearing with Italian words I did not understand and the picture of a gun. (I own guns and believe people should have them for their personal enjoyment & security.) While registering, the gentleman warned us about pick-pockets, thieves, and Gypsies in the area and hence the state-of-the-art security system. He demonstrated how the key worked on the lobby door, and told us how to work the large wooden doors and that they automatically closed behind you. He also mentioned that the desk was not monitored overnight, so we were on our own. He then showed us to our room. In the room I discovered that the door does not automatically lock behind you. There also was no telephone in the room. This combined with what we had already seen at the wooden doors did NOT give us any sense of security or safety. When we went out for dinner, I observed that the large wooden doors do NOT close completely, unless you pull on them. With all of this, my wife did not feel safe, especially after the warning we had been given upon checking in. We opted to leave and check into a different hotel the next day. I was told I would lose all my money because it was non-refundable. That was a small price to pay for my wife's sense of safety & security. So,No, we would never stay here again, nor would I recommend it.
After long flight n jetlag we just wanted to be close to termini, the neighborhood is kinda messy cuz there are lots of indian, arabs, shops like in any big city (like canal st, calle once, etc) it doesnt mean that is dangerous, just busy... The "hotel" is inside and old building...very clean, neat, good wifi, nice beds, tv, brand new bathroom, good shower,,,very few rooms very quiet...I do recommend for a budget trip!
Stayed here for 4 nights in may. Would definitely return. Staff very friendly and helpful. Rooms very clean and comfortable, our room opened out on to the terrace which was worth the upgrade as we used it every morning and afternoon after a busy day site seeing was nice to unwind before going out in the evening. Location was perfect for us few minutes away from termini station and close to the colosseum, lots of nice restaurants on the doorstep too. Overall we really enjoyed our stay here and would return when next in Rome.
Roman terrace is a nice little place. The rooms are nice and there is roofterrace. You have to make your own breakfast. There is a kettle in the room and in te kitchenette. It is very near the Termini stations. I will for sure stay there the next time i am in Rome
The hotel is located very close (2 minutes walk) from the main Termini train station and allows very good access to the historical sites of the city. Once you arrive you will be buzzed in and you need to get to the 2nd floor where the reception is located. The building is used by other businesses as well but this is not a problem at all. You can take the stairs or the lift which is old but functional. It is small but just enough for 2 people with a couple of suitcases. Next to the lift on the ground floor there are some garbage bins that sometimes smell a bit bad. Nothing too serious but they should move them. The staff is very friendly and the room was big enough and extremely clean. There is free wifi with good reception and if you get the superior room you get a small private patio on the terrace. The view from the terrace is nothing special but is a nice place to unwind after a long day sightseeing or to have your morning coffee. The shower pressure is good and the bed was big and comfy. The only problem is the noise from the tram that passes directly outside the hotel (It starts at around 7am). It's not too loud but could be a problem if you are a light sleeper. A pair of earplugs could do the trick. Ask for a court side room rather than a street side one so there is less noise. The area outside the hotel has many restaurants (there are tables right outside the hotel door at night) but in general it's not the best area of Rome. We never felt unsafe though. We would definitely recommend it if you want a nice, clean place to sleep and view the attractions of the city.
As stated by others, the hotel consists of a couple of floors in a building shared by other hotels/businesses. When you arrive, you have to be buzzed into a run down, little bit scary looking entranceway. There's a very very very old-fashioned tiny lift, or you can take the stairs to the 2nd floor where you checkin. But don't be put off by all of this, everything else about the hotel is actually pretty nice! Because the checkin is usually only staffed 8am-8pm, they were very proactive in sending us emails a few days earlier to find out when we would be arriving. We were told that all of the regular rooms were filled so they would be giving us one of the nicer ones on the upper floor. Each floor has a shared kitchen area that has coffee/tea, dishes, and a fridge if you want to store any food in. During our stay we also made good use of the outdoor terrace (on lower floor). It was a great place to go and relax at the end of the day with a bottle of wine after everywhere else has closed. Maybe we just didn't know where to go, but the city seemed to shut down pretty early. The room we got had a very unique layout (maybe normal for Italian standards?), but it was by far the largest and most comfortable room we had on our whole Europe trip. There is a separate room for the toilet and bidet. Then the shower and sink is outside in the main room with the bed and everything else - functional, but not the best if you want privacy. The window shades do a pretty good job of blocking out most outside light and noise, except for during the day when the train starts rolling by. These are old trolley-like trains that run past the building entrance. Not a big deal since you'll probably by out during the day, but they do force you to start the day early. A word of caution, as you are walking to/from the building, make sure to glance behind once in a while because before you know it, one of these trains will be brushing right by you!!
