Rome Life Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The staff was amazing and they accommodated a birthday cake for my friend. The rooms were spotless and the location was super! Away from tourists but close enough to walk everywhere. Hard to find a modern hotel in Rome and this is it!

Nice room, good size for Rome. Extremely helpful staff. Central location, walking distance to most main attractions/food/metro. Breakfast was included in our stay which was a bonus. Would definitely recommend to others.

First visit to Rome. We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights in October 2017, after our Mediterranean cruise. We were very pleased with our choice. Front Desk Staff was courteous, pleasant room attendant, clean and quite room, in the middle of downtown and close walking distance to all the attractions. Definitely will stay there again in our next visit

Overall a very good stay at a clean and well run hotel. Location is superb and they provide an excellent free breakfast in the morning. Staff was also a highlight...this was right from check in staff to the wait staff in the breakfast room and bar. My only complaint is the place has a "cold feel". They could use some art on the walls and plants etc. to warm up the space and make it a cozier feel.

We had a four-night stay here. The staff are excellent, and the room was clean and comfortable. We'd booked a junior suite so that we could all stay together. We had to move one bed to put the children into one room together, but this wasn't a problem. The complementary mini-bar was good for keeping drinks chilled. The breakfast buffet in the morning is very good - a huge range of tasty food that filled us up ready for lots of walking around in Rome. The hotel is well-situated, with the Colosseum and Forum less than 15 minutes away, and lots of good restaurants nearby for evening meals. It's close enough to Termini station to be able to walk after getting off the airport express.

We stayed here as a family from 22nd Oct to the 25th Oct. The hotel was amazing. The rooms were huge. We had a junior suite with was perfect for 4 people. Towels were changed each day, beds were made each day, room was cleaned each day. Some bonuses ... you get a fridge with your room that is full of goodies on your first day and this is free. They don't refill it as once it's gone it's gone. You get free slipper flip flops our kids loved this! You also get a mobile phone with the room. You can make free phone calls home, it has free WiFi. You are welcome to take it out with you as well however if you were to break it accidently then you'd have to pay 200 Euros for it. So ours stayed in the room. The location is excellent and with the exception of the Vatican as we had an early morning booking we got a taxi. This cost 14 Euros. However we walked back seeing the sights on the way. The Coliseum is around 15 minutes walk. Trevi area is through the tunnel and then you're in the hustle and bustle of it all. We found some really lovely and reasonable places to eat in the Monti area 10 minutes walk from hotel and the Trevi area. We also walked to Borghese Gardens and took the kids to the Bioparc on the last day which was great too. The breakfast each morning was amazing as well. Staff incredibly attentive, friendly and put us to shame with their knowledge of English compared to our Italian. Couldn't fault a thing and would definitely recommend staying.

We have just checked out of this hotel and I couldn't leave without leaving a review. When booking we were looking for somewhere there was good value, near to major tourist areas in Rome and offer breakfast. I can honestly say that this is one of the best hotels we have stayed at in Europe. From the minute we checked in the hotel staff could not do enough for us. They were very informative and were able to recommend lovely places to eat around the neighbourhood. The room was just what we needed - modern, comfortable, with a good shower - and very quiet in the evening. Breakfast was also great. A variety of hot food such as sausages and eggs as well as cereals, pastries and fresh fruit. There were plenty of drink options and also the option for soya milk which was perfect for me as I am lactose free. An added bonus of the hotel is your own smartphone. We didn't think we would need to use this but it came with us everywhere! The phone has many apps to help you find key landmarks, restaurants and shopping areas as well as access to Google maps and a 'find my hotel' feature. You can also make calls back home to the UK free of charge. Although we didn't use them, there is also a bar area and roof top terrace if you need them. We were just too busy exploring Rome to find the time to make the most of them. There are many different restaurants around the area to try if you want to stay closer to the hotel. We found a lovely Italian restaurant called Tattoria al 19 which had amazing food. I'm glad we didn't look on TripAdvisor before our visit as it is only rated 3.5 stars but please don't be put off - the food is good value for money and very tasty. Lovely atmosphere and a good selection of wine. Although there was the option to use the metro we walked everywhere using the hotel smart phone. The furthest was Vatican City which took about 45mins but there are so many places to stop along the way. We were very lucky with the weather so it was worth the walk! You could walk to most landmarks within 15-20mins. We will definitely be returning to this hotel again when we return to Rome! Great location, helpful and friendly staff with comfortable rooms. Perfect!

Rome is a fabulous place to visit and Rome Life is a perfect place to stay. The location is great, just a 10-15 min walk to numerous must visit sights. The Vatican is around a 45min walk, but the Metro is 5mins away if you need. The staff at Rome Life are so friendly and helpful. We'd never been to Rome before and all the points of interest were quickly pointed out. Everything is explained so clearly and you are warmly greeted every time you see a member of staff. It was my wife's birthday and she was brought a cake at breakfast even though I hadn't arranged it. The hotel did it themselves. It was a lovely touch by them. Please don't hesitate to go to Rome or to stay at Rome Life, you won't be disappointed.

Stylish little hotel located about halfway between train station and center of tourist district. A great feature is that guests are given a local smartphone so Google maps can be used to find your way. Room was attractive and had a very comfortable bed. pretty good storage, but another hook in the bathroom would be useful. Nice large TV. Shower was just fair. The handheld had great pressure, but it's--well--handheld. Ceiling shower head dripped like a gentle summer rain, so it was fairly useless. Lighting in the bathroom could be better too. There's a rooftop deck for relaxing outdoors. Breakfast buffet has good selection, including eggs, fresh fruits, juices, pastries, breads, and more. Staff is very nice.

Stayed here twice-Before and after our Nadas Italy tour (which was FABULOUS trip). First the good things: Squeaky clean hotel which is minimalistic modern. Great hotel staff- they treat you like you've entered the Ritz! BEST BREAKFAST Buffet of any 4 star I've stayed in. And it was included in our room. Soft sheets Comfy pillows Great bed, very comfy. Great water pressure in the shower. Wonderful shampoo and soaps. YAY found CNN on the BIG TV and a few other English speaking channels. Great neighborhood with lots of choices for food. Down the street from the Colliseum. Here's the rest of the review: The rooms are on the smaller side. Some are slightly larger-ask for one. The vanity/sink is so small you do not have space to put all your "stuff". Only 2 drawers are in armoire style closet. Not all the showers have a shelf to put your soap and shampoo on. Our first room had no place to hang our towel and we had to put our shampoo, soap and razor on the floor. Not a safe place for a bar of soap. Second room had a small 2" shelf in the shower and a towel hook. We liked that room more. That said, this place is a gem. If you're like me and never in your room-then size of the space doesn't matter. The bed is heavenly and I got a great night sleep. Some of the best staff I've come in contact with. Had a fun time. And staff had some good suggestions for dinners. THANKS!
