The Baileys Hotel - Rome

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

As others have noted the hotel is more of a three then four star. The hotel has a certain style, which you may or may not like however it needs modernising. The bathroom in particular had issues with the plumbing with issues with the shower, and on one day we had lack of hot water with brown water coming from the taps. Also it was small and awkward. Wifi access in the room was poor, perhaps due to the old walls. Breakfast was basic, so don't expect much. Water bottle replacement in the mini fridge had to be requested. The positives, location is good and near the main tourist attraction and the central train station. Also the staff were welcoming and helpful. Had this been a 3 star hotel I would have been more forgiven on some issues but since it's 4 star the above criticism stands.

There are two types of room in this hotel. If you are lucky enough to get a room at the front of the hotel, you get a reasonably sized room with a good view of the street. If however, you are allocated a room at the rear of the hotel, you get a very small room with views to the fire escape and very little sunlight. The decor is dated and dull, which doesn't help when there is not much natural light coming through the windows. The bathrooms are adequate, but there was black mould around the bath seal. The breakfast is very basic and the orange juice is so diluted as to be undrinkable. The coffee is well stewed, but i understand from other reviewers that you can ask for a fresh cup. It is a pity, because it wouldn't take much to improve the breakfast offering. On the plus side, the staff are very attentive and the hotel is in easy reach of many attractions and local restaurants. It is a shame that the hotel does not live up to it's 4 star status.

Very shall room more than compensated by the wonderful staff.Reception were more than helpful-supplying maps and directions to S.Steps-Trivi-hop-on-off bus etc.They also recommended a local restaurant which was so good(and reasonable )we returned the next night..

We read the reviews here and decided to stay after our travel agent recommended it. We were so disappointed. Let me start by saying we travel quite a bit and I feel like we're not snobby in our expectations from hotels. I simply need it to be clean and comfortable and the staff to call me a taxi if I need it. This was one of the worst hotels I have ever stayed in. The room was dark and the curtains/ carpet/ bed topper look like they have not been cleaned in.... ever. We had two windows and both looked into a hell hole of trash and junk and forgotten back porches of some other building. The bathroom.... black mold and a half shower door that no one of any size could take a shower without completely soaking the entire bathroom. Any time my husband left the room and took the room key, all the lights went out. The refrigerator was not working and when you opened it I literally gagged at the smell. Some of the staff could have cared less that there were guests there and some others were very helpful and nice. We told our travel agent about all this and they said we would not get a refund for any nights if we left early. We stayed two nights. We slept very little in the uncomfortable beds with rock hard pillows, but we did survive... thanks to the one redeeming factor... they had $10 bottles of Prosecco in the bar... because I needed that to dull the pain of staying here. I would never EVER recommend this hotel to anyone.

I was dreading my 3 night stay in Baileys pre cruise, based on the reviews I read on Tripadvisor - especially as our cruise company had booked us into the dreaded economy double. I am now 2 nights into my Bailey hotel stay and am very pleased with it. Yes, there are undoubtedly the drawbacks - The economy double has no natural light The decor is classical and slightly dated The room is dusty and needs better cleaning The bathroom and wardrobe is tiny It is a little walk to the main sights of the trevi and Spanish steps (I,d say 20-25 minutes) There is not a grand breakfast buffet However, there are many attributes that makes the Bailey hotel a lovely place to stay including: A lovely cool, comfortable bedroom, with comfy bed. Welcoming staff with a can-do attitude Great neighbourhood with good eateries, gelatorias and local supermarkets Very close to bus network Very helpful breakfast attendant, who serves lovely coffee on request. Good choice of

This hotel was one of the few that could book 5 people on one reservation. The combination room was excellent and having two bathrooms made for a pleasurable stay. The breakfast was excellent and was really nice and the location made it so that we did not have to have a car with us at all times. They stored the bags before we checked in so that we could use the day to see the city and that was excellent. Highly recommend the hotel with its helpful staff and wonderful accommodations.

Bailey’s is close to city centre, meaning that attractions like the Trevi Fountain and the Spanish Steps are within walking distance. We stayed here overnight before going on a cruise. This a hotel that appears to specialise in offering this service prior to cruises from Civitavecchia, something they do very well. The staff are friendly and obliging. We had a small double room, which was very aptly named. Nonetheless the bed was comfortable and we enjoyed a good night’s sleep. On the negative side the lighting was poor and the hot water, lukewarm. The water temperature was bearable because the weather was so hot, but shaving with lukewarm water is not pleasant. Breakfast was an adequate continental selection with a number of other random additions including a large container of some dubious looking scrambled egg. However the most remarkable offering was the “orange juice” which can be best described as water with a hint of orange which was frankly “gross”. All in all, Bailey’s Hotel is an adequate overnight stop, but don't be fooled, it is not what you would expect from a four star hotel.

We stayed here for 2 nights B&B following our cruise, great location in middle of Rome, but not in the middle of the hustle and bustle. The hotel is tucked away on a backstreet and has no big signage apart from a small gold plaque near entrance door, so was a struggle to find at night when all the streets looked very similar. I think this hotel is branded as a 4 star, but I would say the 4th star is a wee bit wonky, better than a 3 star but not a 4 star hotel. The hotel was great; room I thought was a really good size for 2 people, good bathroom, big bed and had Sky TV in the room. Although I agree with some comments about the décor maybe needing changed, looked a bit tired at places. The Wi-Fi didn’t work well apart from sitting 3 feet away from the main reception desk. I just put it down to the age of the building and the thick walls. The breakfast was pretty poor, all self-service, heavily watered down fruit juice, stale cakes, tinned fruit and dodgy scrambled eggs. There was a small bar/restaurant at the back of the hotel, but we didn’t use it. There are plenty of small local restaurants and café’s nearby which we used and there is a Co-op and small corner shops for water, snacks etc. all 5 minutes away. However apart from some small negatives, I would definitely stay here again. Really friendly helpful staff, 5 min walk from main bus and train station, 10 min walk from Spanish steps, 15 mins from Trevi fountain etc. Really quiet location, so got a good sleep and the hotel organised our transfer to the airport the next day.

I'd rate this as a 3 star hotel. I booked this based on reviews but was disappointed throughout my stay. Positive - Helpful staff and well located Negative - Rooms are small and incredibly date with poor lighting. The rooms are also not particularly clean; though that might be due to the choice of decor. The breakfast is very dire - very little choice. There are no irons available. There's an ironing service at €10 per garment (on average) - which seemed steep given the low quality of the rest of the hotel services. On a related note; there is the hangout cafe - quite close to the hotel (connected in some way) which is amazing good food and decor.

We stayed here for two nights this week and firstly let me start by saying the staff are very good indeed. Friendly, helpful and very attentive they really were excellent. The hotel itself is well located however the rooms are in need of some work. We were initially given an 'internal room' which was too small to swing a cat and had no external windows (only one small one looking onto an internal fire escape). The staff were accommodating to move us to a different room although size wise this wasn't much better we did have a window that overlooked a solid brick wall (perhaps for daylight you must pay extra). The breakfast is honestly not worth bothering with, the coffee was cold and the 'continental breakfast' was very uninspiring as proven by the lack of diners in the breakfast room. If you're looking for a no frills hotel in a good location in Rome then this will be good but if you are expecting 4 star luxury then look elsewhere.
