The Baileys Hotel - Rome4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
In a very good situation and an attractive building, with most of Rome's sights within walking distance, this should be a great hotel. Unfortunately, it is desperately in need of a makeover. The decor is very dated and a little tatty. Our room was spacious but had damp stains in several places. The bathroom was a disgrace for a purportedly four star hotel. Ingrained dirt on the grouting, mould all around the bath with a shower that cycled from scalding hot to cold as it was not thermostatically controlled. Awful "squeeze the bottle", wall mounted shower gel containers that looked grubby and old ensured that we used our own. The electricity in the room failed completely, twice in the first half hour when I plugged my phone in to charge it up. Two blown up adaptors later, I worked out that it was a faulty socket. It was not repaired. The old fashioned, wall mounted hair drier was completely ineffective and it would be a very brave person that tried to connect a normal, hand held one. The breakfast was mediocre. Quite why the uninspiring bread and stale croissants are supplied is a mystery, given that there are several excellent bakeries in close proximity. Our room was on the sixth floor and there is only one lift, which, while we were there was (understandably) hogged with the doors wedged open by the chambermaids every morning, so we only got to use it twice. Very disappointing that the friendly and helpful staff are let down by such an establishment with so much potential.
I last stayed in this hotel about 8 years ago and upon my return in November 2017, nothing has changed! The decor is same ( old and drab), the lift is tiny, the breakfast is simply awful!! I'm not quite sure why it is classed as four star. The room we were given was big enough but just very dull and old fashioned. View of the street below which was fine until the bin lorry turns up at 5.30 am! Bathroom shower is ancient and leaks all over the floor ( although plenty of hot water). The breakfast is held in a room in the basement where tables for two are set. If there's more than two of you it gets a bit cramped as there is so many plates and containers on the table and the waitress never clears away old dishes or plates. The coffee is the worst I have ever tasted and the food selection is dire! Wrapped, stale croissants and fruit well past it's sell by date! No windows either which makes the room very drab. The safe in the room was not very safe! The wifi is not worth talking about and trying to connect from your room was a waste of time. The good things to mention are the staff; they are friendly, helpful and professional. The hotel is situated on a street that has several decent restaurants close by and it is within reasonabke walking distance of the main sights and attractions. Given the price we paid, and it was not cheap, it is not worth the money.
Stayed for 2 nights prior to a cruise. Hotel in good location to walk to some of the sights. Very helpful man at reception desk who could not do enough for you. We were in room 505 which was a good size with extremely comfortable bed. Would suggest taking your own hairdryer and toiletries. The hotel, furniture etc is old but in keeping with the building. The letdown is the breakfast which is such a pity. Tables not cleared, dust everywhere. Continental breakfast on offer was very poor and accompanied by the worst juice I have ever had. There was one member of staff trying to do everything and unfortunately failing. Saying this I would stay again but definitely give breakfast a miss
Westerners tend to forget how old most of these hotels are and that they were built for smaller folks. On a side street and easy to miss unless you have a good driver. ..everything you need within a 1 block radius Welcoming front desk with quick friendly check in and a nice upgrade to a larger room!. limited bathroom amenities and towels but adequate. Breakfast included and though we departed at 3:30 AM they had two boxed breakfasts for us to depart with...nice touch.
Visited in early November we checked in but were unhappy with the superior room We were given it was very dark with a long hallway and small main room carpet look dirty and bathroom had broken shower no view as in centre courtyard. we were offered another room and was 100% better if offered room 101 be wary 304 was much better ...bonus was sky tv as you can change original English speaking programmes from italian to English. Breakfast included was ok buffet style.
We stayed here for 2 nights prior to joining a cruise in October and found it a bit of a mixed bag. Firstly the location is good as there are lots of good restaurants close by and the hotel is within walking distance of the Trevi Fountain and Spanish steps and also hop on/off bus and other transport. The staff at reception were very efficient and helpful and the rooms were OK for a city center location. While we did enjoy the stay it was let down by a very poor buffet breakfast selection ( for example fruit juice which was more water than fruit) and a very drab breakfast room with no windows. Good location but if we stay again we will have breakfast somewhere else.
We booked this hotel via Expedia so we were kind of flying blind. The hotel itself is a little dated in some areas and probably isn't a 4 star. However we have stayed in much worse places. The room we stayed in was sufficient with a large bed and camp bed for our son, bathroom a fair size and the mini fridge was great for keeping Italian lager cold. There was a slight draught coming in through the window and the curtains didn't close fully but this wasn't an issue. The breakfast was fairly basic but still good as there was plenty yo fill you up (you need the energy to go exploring Rome) and the street outside is fairly quiet (except for the noisy binmen at 5.30am) and has a lot of restaurants and bars. To be honest the sleep was very good and overall i would recommend if on a budget
We had a very good stay at the Baileys Hotel for a weekend before going on our Cruise. The room was unexpectedly spacious by Rome standards and was spotlessly clean. The staff were very attentive and always available for advice. Breakfast was a little disappointing (all cold continental) but we made the most of it and it was fine for what we wanted. Overall we would almost definitely stay here again when visiting Rome.
We stayed for one night before a cruise and another after the cruise. This is a small hotel in a great location for exploring room. The welcome was good and the room was comfortable but the decor is dated and tired and badly needs updating . ( on both nights we had what was described as a superior room ) The breakfast was adequate but nothing special
Stayed here for 2 nights location was excellent for exploring Rome and just a short walk from the railway station. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Room was fine for a quick stay but a bit on the dark side with what looked like a fire escape directly in front of the window. Breakfast was fine. So all in all a good base but only for a short stay
