First time I stayed at Hotel Hollywood was during my first trip to Rome in 2000. After that I've been in the Eternal city for another 15-20 times, and have been staying at the hotel as often as possible.
The hotel is located about 150 meters from the Termini Station, which makes it perfect for any means. Close to the train station, close to the metro, and close to most of the sights if you prefer to go by foot instead. From the Hollywood it takes about 15 minutes to Colosseo and Forum for example.
In the area there are also quite many restaurants and a few pubs as well. Less than 100 meters away there is also the church Santa Maria Maggiore.
The rooms are nice, although nothing special. But they are better than normal for a 2*-hotel. First two nights we spent in a double room where the cover of the bed was in the same style and colour as the walls...
A bit too much maybe if you ask me, but whatever... :)
The last night when we returned we were lucky to get another empty room, which was for four persons. Plenty of space that was!
I think about half of the rooms have bathroom and shower, while the other half has it out in the corridor. Not the biggest bathrooms I've seen, but clean and nice for sure!
The staff are very friendly and speaks good english if your italian isn't what one could call fluent. :) The first thing we got was a guided tour over the map of Rome, so we knew exactly where to go for the next 14 years or so.
No breakfast served, but there are places for that nearby. As you might know the Termini area can be a bit scary at night, but as always it's about being careful and thinking. I've never ever had any problems whatsoever in the area.
For a few years the prices were quite high for a 2*-hotel, but when I was back here in december 2007 they seemed to have lowered again. Paid 58 euro for a double room, which must be said is among the absolute cheapest in Rome.
Unique Quality: The terrace on the top gives you a nice view of the roof tops around.
Directions: Exit the Termini station and head straight over the first big street. Then turn left (in front of the McDonalds) and then right at the first possible. Take left again on the third street. 20 meters and you're there.
