Franklin - A Contemporary Dwelling

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 14, 2005

Overall, this was a very nice hotel to stay during our trip to Rome. My two sisters and I fit comfortably in a room with king size bed and roll away (much nicer than American roll-aways). Much smaller than American hotel rooms, but that was expected. Very clean, beds turned over very day. Breakfast served in dining area - includes cereal, juice, meats, cheeses, fruit, toast, pastries...enough to satisfy even the pickiest eater. Staff very friendly...helpful on getting around Rome, give restaurant recs, and will even call for reservations. Also with laundry service, but did not use.

Unique Quality: Smaller hotel about 4 blocks north of the Vatican. Easily accessible in good part of town for subway or bus to center of Rome.

Directions: If coming from airport, take a shuttle...will take you right to front doors.

I stayed in a double room at The Franklin in early February 2005 in one of the camera rooms (which I believe is a 'pop' room on 2nd floor). There was a Bang&Olufsen stereo, mini bar, television with sky, speakers in bathroom, nice big bath tub and the bed was exteremly comfortable and huge (it was an actual double bed, not two singles put together like you sometimes get).
Breakfast was nothing special.
The staff are friendly enough, they left us to get on with our stay and made us feel comfortable.
Surrounding area was excellent for me. Excellent daily markets 1 minutes walk away, excellent restaraunts, shops and about 6 minute walk to vatican (young legs). This area made me feel like I was not caught up so much in the tourist areas and gave me more of a feel for living in a neighbourhood.
The area was very safe at night and all locals I encountered were wonderful.

It doesnt take long to walk to the tourist spots and you can easily get a tube to spannish steps and navigate from there, although it took me under 30 minutes to walk to this area from the hotel s did not use the trains, it was a very nice walk.

I got a great deal on this hotel so it was good value for money, I'm not sure I would pay the full rate otherwise. However I would not be dissapointed staying here in terms of comfort and location.

They can play dvds from reception to your room though they only had music dvds or finding nemo so perhaps bring a few dvds if you want more options though I'm pretty sure you're not going to Rome to sit in a hotel room every night?!

I found a good selection of pictures for the hotel on www.romeby.com/franklin in the gallery section if you want to see more.

This hotel is probably more suitable for those on a budget who want to spend more whilst in Rome than on the hotel.

If you wish to ask me any questions about this hotel feel free to e-mail.

B&O CD stereo (linked to speaker in Bathroom)

Directions: North of Vatican in Prati District. Nearest tube station is Ottavio (hotel is 5 minute walk from this station)
