I booked this hotel through Wowcher as part of a flight+hotel deal for a surprise Christmas present for my girlfriend. It was reasonably priced so I didn't set my expectations too high, but I was pleasantly surprised. The hotel is quite far from the city centre itself, you'll have to get the metro to Furio Camillo, which is the closest station. It's then around a 10-15 minute walk to the hotel. The staff in the hotel were very friendly and were happy to answer any questions we had. The receptionists all spoke English really well which was helpful. The rooms were neat and tidy, quite spacious with two wardrobes, one containing a safe, the other a mini-fridge. The bathroom was a good size with quite a big sink, shower, toilet and a bidet, with a large mirror on the wall. There were some toiletries provided such as soap and shower gel. We added breakfast to our stay for a small additional charge and it was definitely a good decision as there was plenty on offer and it really fuelled our days of exploring Rome. There was assorted pastries, cereals, meats, bread and cheese, yogurts, hot and cold drinks. Plenty of options. All in all it was great value for money and we really enjoyed our stay. The Romoli Hotel really made it an amazing visit to Rome! I would definitely recommend the breakfast and would also recommend people to get a Roma Pass, which allows unlimited travel on the metro (for a certain amount of time) along with discounts to certain attractions and queue jumps. One thing to bear in mind is there is a city tourist tax that must be paid at the end of your stay which they will clarify at reception.

The hotel staff were friendly. We discovered small insects in our room near the beds and in the bathroom. We had to get the staff to fumigate the room in order to get rid of them. The breakfast was a Continental one and very boring,

Although the hotel is very clean, well-kept and the staff is very friendly, there are three major disadvantages: - Bad city center connections. Although bus stop no.628 is very close to the hotel (about 50m) and it goes directly to the core of Rome/Vatican (about 4-7 km), but there are only 4 busses per hour. ATTENTION : this line does not operate every hour during weekend and there are only 2 busses per hour after 10PM even working days. The metro station is far enough (about 10-12 minutes by foot) not to be a night solution. So that, every tourist must be very mindful about the transportation map. - Not a bit phonic insulation. It is a big problem if you will stay at the lowest levels. In this case you will also feel the taste of street traffic. - Poor breakfast. In order to make some long trips tourists need to eat, and the hotel is not in the city center, to Roma`s heart is a long way !

I stayed at the Romoli Hotel in March 2018, it was a great hotel and me and my boyfriend really enjoyed our stay. The hotel itself is nice. Rooms are nice, clean etc. The staff were friendly and helpful on arrival, giving us a map of the surrounding areas, informing us on good places to visit and suitable transport to get. There is a bus stop that is literally right next to the hotel, a 30 second walk. The train station is a ten minute walk from the hotel too so really accessible for public transport. Overall really nice experience here and would definitely come back again, Rome is a beautiful city!

We came to Romoli as part of a Groupon deal so didn’t choose the hotel but were very pleased with it. Reception staff couldn’t have been more helpful telling is where to eat and how to get to the colloseum and trevi fountain etc. It is a 15minute walk to the metro underground train station and all the main tourist areas are easy to get to on the metro. Theres also a bus stop 5min walk from the hotel.The breakfast was continental and fairly basic but there was enough to choose from and the room was clean and spacious. You get what you pay for with this hotel and it’s no frills but perfectly pleasant and I would stay there again.

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Romoli Hotel for 2 nights whilst visiting Rome and were really impressed with the hotel. It’s small and very clean plus the reception staff are friendly. They even lent us an umbrella as it was torrential rain during our stay. The continental breakfast is light but just enough to start the day. There are no evening meal facilities but there is a supermarket and small pizza take away close to the hotel. The room was spacious and fairly modern too. There is a bar in the hotel which is very reasonable but there are no seating areas so we took some drinks to our room. The nearest tube station is Furio Camillo and is approximately 10 minutes walking distance from the hotel. This takes you straight to the main train station and has tube links to all the main attractions too. There is a small shopping mall next to the tube station too. We can recommend staying at The Romoli as it’s reasonably priced and not too far from the city centre.

This a great inexpensive hotel to explore Rome from. Don't be put off by the Area it is in, it really is a nice safe place to stay. Our room was brilliant it was large with a balcony and fridge, the hotel was spotless. The staff were always ready to help and the restaurant on the roof was a lovely place to have breakfast This is an ideal place to stay when visiting Rome and is only a short walk to the Metro, which is a cheap and easy way to get around the sites.

Stayed here end of February. To start off do not be put off by the surrounding area, it may look a bit rough with graffiti etc but I can assure you it’s quite safe. You’ll arrive at Romoli to notice it’s all security gated, but you’ll soon notice most of Rome and the surrounded area has security gates on residential properties. You press the bell and are buzzed into the carpark and entrance, you then enter the reception area. If arriving by hire car/own car and using the car park you can approach the security sliding gate next to the pedestrian entrance, we didn’t use a car to enter but I think I saw cars approach the gate and the gate opened but you may need to check in first before you can use the carpark. Check in: Our flight was fairly early and we arrived at the hotel about 10am to find our room ready and could take our luggage upstairs to the room instantly. There is a very small lift available which can fit 2 people and a bag inside, Or 3 people. We were told all info at the desk, given the smart key, offered a complimentary map, was explained the city tax payable at the end of our stay, was given the WiFi password and shown things offered by the hotel. Breakfast is on the top floor and hours are 7-10:30 (times are shown on a plaque in the lift). Everything you need to know the staff at the reception desk will explain and are happy to help. We were asked to sign an agreement for non smoking in the rooms/building and no food or drink in the rooms. The reception area is lovely bright with seating area and a bar to the left of the reception area (we didn’t use the bar so cannot comment on the running/quality of the bar) you are also asked to leave the room key at reception whenever leaving the hotel and to retrieve it again when returning. Room: we stayed in room 209 which is on the second floor facing out to the rear of the property. It’s a smart key which you push against a button on the door to open and then slot the key into a hole in the wall to activate the electrics in the room. Bathroom for us consisted of shower cubicle (very small to enter and exit as I’m 6 foot 3), toilet, bidet and a large sink with mirror. There’s a plug socket inside the room next to the mirror. There’s a towel rail in here also. When in the shower beware there is a pull cord for emergency (fallen in shower etc). Free toiletries are provided, shower caps, soap bars, and a couple sachets of shower gel/shampoo. Bedroom: Our bed wasn’t that comfortable really, as it was made of 2 single beds with a double sheet thrown over it, meaning the edges of the mattresses weren’t comfortable to lie on so myself and my girlfriend had to lie far apart from each other (height of romance!) there is one pillow each (may be more on request) a thin blanket but there were extra blankets in the cupboard. The light switches are right by your head also which can get slightly annoying. Bedside tables next to the bed, one side had a phone and both sides had power outlet plugs (don’t forget your travel converters) tables have drawers built in. You have a flatscreen TV and all channels are Italian (you’re not there to watch TV though). But if you do want to watch anything bring a laptop/phone/tablet as the WiFi is very good (or was when I was there) speed tests show a stable 70-80Mbps connection. Enough to watch Netflix etc (remember some content will be restricted by region) Inside the wardrobes along with the spare blankets is a mini fridge that’s empty (remember no food or drink) and there’s a safe also that’s programmable to a key code of your choice (instructions are with the safe) you also have a window which can open inward on the hinge or can be partially leaned open on another hinge. The shutters can also be opened and there are holders to stop them flapping around. The whole room is clean and there is a maid service daily, there is a door hanger you can put on the door if you didn’t want the room making up. Breakfast: the breakfast is very simple, don’t expect cooked breakfast etc. From memory there was: coffee, tea and juices (orange and pineapple), 3 ranges of cereals, bread rolls, Cold meats and cheese, yoghurt, fruits, pastries, scones, fruit salads. There’s something there for someone, the lady running the breakfast bar is fantastic keeping the place tidy and stocked up, very welcoming and moves like a blur she’s that quick keep everything running smoothly, very clean and bright. Checkout: we had a very early pickup to head back to the airport. We got to the checkout desk at 6:50am where we were asked about our stay and how we were getting to the airport, handed the key over and paid the city tax, we then waited on the sofas for our transfer to arrive and we left swiftly. A very quick, painless and easy checkout. Transport: There are 2 bus stops nearby and busses are about half hour apart (download an app called “Moovit” to see the timetables and to plan routes) to use the busses though you must already have purchased a ticket, these can be purchased from shops or tobacconists, The receptionists will help you with this. You can also purchase tickets from the metro station as the bus/rail system inside Rome is all connected (think TFL in London). The nearest station is Furio Camilo and the ticket machines there have an option to change language to English. You can choose a single trip ticket or better is a 24/48/72 hour tickets and you can then use these tickets on the metro and busses up to the time limit stamped on the ticket. Which you can then use to get to and from the hotel using the transport system. The bus can take you to a nearby metro, which you can then use to quickly get into central Rome, you can use the A line to get to places like the Vatican and you can use the B line to get to places such as the Coliseum. There are maps at the metro stations and you can also download them onto a smartphone. If you plan to travel lots in Rome look into the day/multi day passes as they are great value. Food: Only breakfast is available at Romoli. But there are a few good restaurants nearby. We tried Taverna Latina twice that does great food and nice dining and is a 5 minute walk from the hotel. You also have pizza good good, which is just a minute or so further than Taverna Latina which is a more casual place that does great food I had pizza and the girlfriend had carbonara which we both loved. When walking into Rome centre one day we stopped for a quick lunch at a cafe called Picnic which was simple cafe style Italian food, easy, quick and cheap. On another day we travelled to the Hard Rock Cafe which was a 5 minute walk from the Barberini metro station which is on the A line which was fantastic food if it’s your style. There was only 2 things that stopped me from giving a full 5 star: the beds weren’t too comfortable, so I couldn’t recommend these beds for more than 2/3 nights before it begins to affect posture and back ache in the days, and also in the evening/night there was one man on the reception desk that wasn’t at all welcoming, when asking for our room keys they would be thrown on the table at us, as if we were an inconvenience, he didn’t seem to want to help and wasn’t at all approachable, he audibly sighed loudly when there were new arrivals turning up behind me while me and another gent waited to get our room keys back after returning from out of the hotel. Very small matters, all in all this is a fantastic hotel with the amenities you need, a place to rest your head, recharge yourself and your electronics, eat some breakfast and head out into Rome. If you can ignore the distance from the town and that you’re in the urban residential parts of Rome instead of the heavily tourist part of Rome you’ll do just fine. You have transport to easily get you to the centre and the restaurants the people of Rome choose to use. And as I’ve always been told the best restaurants in Rome are the ones off the beaten track.

Stayed here for 4 nights lovely clean warm hotel although rooms a little small. But spotless 15 mins walk to metro to all attractions . Staff so helpful and friendly. Great bar 2 mins walk from hotel which served lovely food. Will be back here next time in Rome.

Just back from a city trip in Rome. Hotel Romoli is a great inexpensive option if you are looking for a cheap getaway. Its immaculately clean, and the staff were nothing short of lovely. Yes it is a little basic, but that is what you would expect from the cost. It is a short walk to the Metro, about 10 minutes, and there is a Bus stop less than 100 meters from the front door which takes you right into the city centre. Would recommend to anyone looking for an inexpensive option in Rome.
