i was staying in room 101 and there is no lift in this part of the building,i know it was only the first floor,but my case was heavy!! ha ha. Room was small..just enough space to walk between the fridge and bed! same with the bathroom..very compact. Clean towels and bed made each day. couldnt tell you about the breakfast...never made it...either to late or early sight seeing start! Walls to the rooms are very thin and you can hear other guests walking up and down the stairs..rattling door keys. Would have been nice to have a kettle in the room to make tea...just me being English! ha ha Air conditioning in room was great..after a while, needed to turn it off as it got chilly! The local area is not attractive..graffiti,rubbish and in some parts very bad lighting. The walk from Termini station to the hotel..i would not recommend doing after dark..Buy one euro bus tickets from the tabachi shops. the nearest to the hotel is to the end of the street and turn right, walk to the end of this street to the major junction and the shop is on the left hand side of the road..you will see the "T" sign outside. The bus stops are on the other side of that junction out side the large supermarket..which is great for fruit,soft drinks, crisps and some sandwichs..and cheaper than most. Have a few of these tickets on you so that you are prepared!! The bus you will need to catch is the 105 to Termini or to Grotto celoni ( when you want to come "home")
Unique Quality: It is close to most of the sights..go to the end of the road and turn left,follow this road down and it will bring you to the colosseum and the Roman forum and other sights...i say roughly 20 25 minute walk. The street is quiet and you cant really hear the traffic..which is a god send after a day of car horns and emergency sirens!!
Directions: If you arrive in Termini Station..get the 105 bus and get off at the supermarket,turn right at the supermarket and cross the main road, via luzzatti is the first turning on the left.
Hotel Espana is a good clean basic hotel near the Manzoni Metro in Rome. We stayed in the Dependance which was situated just next door from the main hotel. The bedding and the shower room were spotless and the air conditioning was great to come back to at the end of a long days sightseeing. The breakfast was adequate. Croissants, rolls, ham, cheese, the usual kind of breakfast in European hotels. We found the price far more competitive than other hotels of its class. £165 for 3 nights at the end of June, which I thought was pretty good. Book with Expedia.co.uk
Directions: Twenty minutes walk from the Colleseum. Two stops from Termini Station
I loved this hotel! It was spread over two buildings on the same street, and we had a beautiful room on the top floor of the secondary building.
The hotel took security pretty seriously, with a key to the gate in front of the building, another to the building itself, and a third for your room, and there's a safe in the wardrobe. The hotel reception (in the main building) is always open, which is very handy as they ask you to leave your key when you go out, so that they know who is in the building in case of emergencies.
Breakfast, also in the main building, is buffet style, with a choice of cornetto, bread rolls, ham and cheese, or cereal, with coffee, tea and juices, and is included in the price of the room (not always the case in Rome).
The staff do speak English.
Unique Quality: Room 207, I highly recommend it! The door was on the third storey, but behind the door was another staircase which led up to the room. Once in the room, there was another step up to the ensuite shower room, and within this, another step up into the shower! Perhaps not great for people with restricted movement, but I thought it was so sweet! We also had a balcony formed by the flat roof of the rooms below, on both sides of our room, which was lovely, especially in the evening. We even had a picnic dinner out there one night!
Directions: Near to Stazione Termini
