The Strand Hotel3.0 out of 5.0

the entrance was fard to find with one small sign. Very weird smell in the room. Thin walls, one night i could hear a lady talking so loud, i didnt get any sleep. There was a bedside table missing and a lamp was off, but they replaced both when we told them. Bathroom coud use a renovation, the showerphone was spilling water all over the place, but they replaced it. Close to the metro and nice coffee places around
I will start with my only positive I have and that is this is about 20 mins away on the underground from the city centre. We looked at each other in shock when our taxi started to pull up to this place as we had been joking about staying in the ghetto and this is what we arrived at. A hotel room that smelled like urine with walls so thin we could hear next door enjoying each other's company... Our "balcony" door (with no balcony just metal bars across the front of it) wouldn't close properly and we were scared to leave our belongings in the room. It was so dark in our room - probably because our lovely view of Rome was a brick wall - that we had the lights on during the day. The room was so small that a travelodge room is bigger, I hope that will give you an idea of how small I mean! All it could fit in it was a double bed which we had to squeeze round each other to pass by to the toilet. Which was yellow, dated and had a shower that looked like it was from the 60's, it was falling apart. I hate even writing about this place because it brings back bad memories of arriving here. It was my birthday and I genuinely cried when we arrived here. I don't want to give any more time from my day writing about this place. Avoid avoid avoid. I would have rather stayed at a travelodge.
Selected this hotel because of its location close to my meeting the next morning. The entrance was hard to find with absolutely no signs on the road, also the reception was not marked clearly. The room was clean But 2/3 of the lights were out, and damaged to the point where it could be dangerous. The metro was very noisy rumbling through the entire building. Breakfast was likewise very basic, cereals, croissants coffee and juice. The breakfast rom was untidy. With tables un cleared. All in all, it served the purpose a night in Rome for a meeting
Great little pool, balconies with lounge chairs. Great service with Olag who always tried to accommodate us, the others were also good! Some problems with ac and fridge initially then good! Close to metro stops and lots of great caffe shops especially caffetiria Romano , restaurants especially Le Streghe.
The hotel is in a good place, a little bit far from Downtown but very well connected by Subway Line A (Porta Furba station). I had some minor problems (one light and the bath plug were not working). The room was clean, a little bit dark, the bed was OK. Again some minor problems or details, the floor was broken near the bathroom door. Overall the balance between price and quality is good.
Nothing so far from the online photos. Small rooms. Broken furniture. Bathroom with limestone and mold everywhere. Services well down a three stars rating. Prices like three stars hotels closer to the centre. Strongly discouraged.
We were given this Hotel as previous hotel booked went into liquidation... Well I was glad of the change it was indeed a little Oasis in the midts of where the locals lived.For a 3 star hotel we were very impressed ... loved it
Very basic room, no tea making facilities. No hairdryer. Very little toiletries supplied. Some rooms have a balcony, we had one...with extremely loud neighbours! Right under the flight path, and the metro runs directly underneath, so not the quietist. It's very very basic for the price, the only plus side was it was so close to the metro. I feel you could find a lot better within the same price range. It's ok if you don't expect too much and just need a base to rest your head.
Okay so it was in the flight path but I guess you're not in Rome to stay in bed past 7.00am right? Breakfast is quite basic but if meat and cheese are your thing in the morning you'll be okay. I settled on cereal but there are pastries. The coffee machine takes a bit of mastering. The swimming pool is great and there is a jacuzzi in a separate building. There is a lovely young man on the Reception Desk - Oleg - who was delightful and very helpful with directions etc. I'm only rating him really as the other two Reception staff acted more like night watchmen so I had very little interaction with them as they weren't very friendly. As the hotel is a few miles from the city you need to get the Metro but I found that very easy to negotiate and the station is very close to the hotel.
We stayed here as a family of four for 1 night before leaving Italy. It's a good location between the airport and central Rome and has a small pool. However I would have struggled to stay more than one night with us all squashed in such a small space and there wasn't a communal living space we could relax in. Also the aircon was very noisy so I didn't sleep well but it was too hot not to use it. The beds were good quality though and the wifi efficient. Also staff recommended an excellent steak restaurant close by which was superb. (Taxi to Ciampino Airport cost 40euros at 4.30am).
