The Baileys Hotel - Rome

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We stayed two nights at this lovely hotel. The staff were wonderful, in an old world courtly way. They were extremely friendly and helpful and their English was excellent. We left early one morning to go the Vatican Museums and they had packed us each a breakfast to take with us! They called the cab and had the drivers name and number for us. The rooms were adequate and quite large enough. We were on the street side but it was very quiet. The hotel is within walking distance of most major attractions if you like to walk. Or is about three blocks from the main trainStation and was easy to continue our journey to Pisa from there.

This hotel is an easy walk to Repubblica Metro Station, from which you can connect to any part of the city. The rooms are clean and a good size for a European boutique hotel. The WiFi in the room was inconsistent, but you could always connect from the first-floor sitting room/bar. The breakfast is sufficient and includes eggs, cheese, meat, fruit, cereal, yogurt, Americano coffee, tea, and sweets. You can order toast or cappuccino from the friendly breakfast room attendant. The front desk staff is knowledgeable about connecting to sites in the city. The street has several excellent restaurants and sandwich bars within a four-block stretch, and there is a colorful fruit and vegetable stand a block away for fresh fruit and bottles of water. This was our second time staying in this hotel, and if we return to Rome, we'll go back to The Bailey.

We stayed here for a couple of nights following a cruise package. Here are the main points which struck me about the Baileys Hotel…. Room size Yes, this may be a room in central Rome, but really…..The room only just accommodated a queen size bed. There was a little walking space around the bed, but with our two suitcases taking up this space, because there was nowhere else to put them, we had to be very careful if getting up in the middle of the night to use the toilet. It was also quite stressful to be limited to having to park yourself on the bed whenever in the room. Décor Bearing in mind that this is a really small room, the décor is horrendous, and just gives a feeling of claustrophobia. Thick dark striped wallpaper makes the room feel enclosed and is really oppressive. Practicality Not a single shelf, not a single hook. The cupboards gave room to put nothing into them so we had to live out of our suitcases (after remembering not to trip over them). There is a small safe in one of the cupboards, but there was no key and we were not able to use it. No tea or coffee making facilities, and no Iron available even if requested through reception. View One very small window looked out onto an enclosed fire escape. It was too small to allow any natural light into the room. As mentioned in previous reviews, this is the spot for one of the staff to have regular cigarette breaks. A neat pile of about sixty cigarette ends were placed on a corner of the metal fire escape. The fire escape was covered in pigeon muck. So much for my hopes of a view of Rome. Lighting This room had one old style wall light, and two lights by the sides of the bed. Due to the tiny window and no natural light, we had to have all lights on whenever in the room, but even then it remained gloomy. Comfort The bed was OK, but the pillows were the thinnest I have ever encountered. There were only two of them. Lift After having checked in, we went with the porter to the lift. He was clearly embarrassed when it had not arrived after more than five minutes. We climbed the five floors to our room, where we were met several minutes later by the porter. The lift is extremely small and very slow. Breakfast Very basic. Fruit juice was so watered down as to be unrecognisable. The same applied to the coffee. A tray of congealed yellow substance claimed to be scrambled eggs. I didn’t have the courage. The remainder of the breakfast buffet consisted of tinned fruit salad, and some very sweet pastries. Bar There was a small bar in the area behind reception, but it really didn’t look inviting. A small dark area with red plastic chairs . To be fair and balanced, there were also some good points relating to the Baileys Hotel. The location is good and it only took five minutes to walk to a Metro station. The air conditioning in the room was a life saver and worked efficiently. There was free wifi which worked well. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful. Would I stay here again?.... No thanks

Staff are lovely and helpful. Room was a bit dated and tired as most hotels in Rome in this price range. we found our room to be very dark. There was a small window in the hallway, overlooking the back of apartments, and the window in our room was small, had a lace curtain and heavy drapes, it was hard to open either of them, view was the same as from the hall window. Not great. Breakfast was the worst we have ever had, tasteless weak fruit juice (watered down), as was the coffee, we did what one reviewer mentioned, asked for fresh coffee, much better. Poor selection at breakfast, some fruit/cereal and the sweetest driest cakes we have ever tasted. Can't comment on the location as we walked into the city centre but of course got lost and obviously taken a long detour to get there. I imagine it wouldn't take too long to go to Trevi fountain and other famous landmarks if you can read a map better than we can.

Lovely hotel helpful from start to finish willing to give directions and advise any time,lovely room very Italian with padded wallpaper and plush curtains,bathrobes and slippers in room not a great view but not here to look out window here to explore Rome .gerald on front desk gave us his name and a compliments slip for 10% of a meal at the hang out cafe up the and my partner got engaged during stay and manager sent up prosecco and nibbles to our room very thoughtful luvvly touch can't fault our 4 night stay also lovely continental breakfast in morning from 7.30 to 10.30 with coffee and tea nice start to the day guys on front desk very knowledgable and all speak English.

I was part of a group of 7 ladies spending 3 nights in Rome. We loved everything about this hotel. Lovely quiet rooms with comfortable beds, good bathrooms and all mod cons. The continental breakfast which is included was excellent. The staff could not have been nicer or more helpful. Everything was within walking distance and we walked ..a lot ! There are a couple of restaurants beside the hotel and we ate several times in the second one....sadly the name eludes me because it would deserve a good review. Fabulous Italian fare, lovely waiters and a great atmosphere...busy with locals. There is also a wonderful deli opposite the hotel if you fancy a break from eating out. I would highly recommend this hotel

Excellent hotel! I was here for a short break with my daughter for 4days. The staff are so friendly. They went out of their way to make our holiday extra special. The hotel is clean, has everything you need. We found it within walking distance to everything which if you can manage is really worth it because we seen some beautiful monuments which we otherwise may have missed. I really liked this hotel, it was in a quiet area which suited our needs, it had some lovely restaurants right on its doorstep. I can't praise the staff enough. Just be aware of the city tax you have to pay when checking out, it's the same everywhere.

Amazingg hotel. Friendly staff that helps with any questions. Free wife. The same owner of the hotel owns a restaurant that is locate like two blocks from the Hotel where they offer you a free prosseco. Great service

Comfortably located close to Termini railway station, walking distance from main historical sights (10 min walk from Trevi Fountain, 30 min walk from Colosseum). Moderate breakfasts (it would be great if you add some vegetables to it). Very friendly and sympathetic staff - that's what really makes this hotel a perfect place to stay in.

We stayed for four nights in room 205 which is spacious and looks onto the road. We slept with the window open as the road is quiet at night. The shower was really powerful. Breakfast was ok - the cakes and pastries are ridiculously sweet and quite dry and the scrambled eggs are so salty they're inedible. For me, a caffeine addict, the redeeming feature was the coffee. If you want an espresso, cappuccino etc, grab a member of staff (they seem to like staying hidden) as there's an espresso machine in the kitchen. It's not obvious it's on offer and the staff won't ask if you want one. Quite a walk to the nearest sights but lots of eating places nearby including the excellent Pinsere pizza place. The people on reception are so friendly and helpful.
