More about Hotel Nerva

An ok place

by A TripAdvisor Member

Beware the Hotel Nerva. While published material indicates they accept credit cards, they do not. It is cash only. Came as quiet a shock for three nights.

This hotel and the staff came to our rescue!

by TripAdvisor Member Bloomcounty

We stayed in this hotel very unexpectedly on the 10th July 2007 and I can't thank the very helpful staff enough for their help. We had originally booked an apartment for a week and arrived at our apartment in the late evening (9.00pm) only to discover that there had been some sort of mix up with the owner and the letting agency and as a result nobody was available to meet us at the apartment to let us in or to advise of what we should do (that's another whole story in itself!). As a result of the mix-up we were eventually informed at about 11.00pm that no-one could sort out the problem. It wouldn't have been so bad but we had our children (3 & 7 years) with us and we found ourselves in Rome at 11.00pm at night with nowhere to stay, not having had a chance to get our bearings and speaking very little Italian. We got a very nice taxi driver and pleaded with him to try and take us to a hotel because we were desparate. The first 2 hotels he tried were fully booked and then he tried the Hotel Nerva which could give us a family room for the evening at a very good price of 180 euros (the usual rate was 350 euros). The room was a short walk from the main reception area, with a double bed and 2 single beds, air conditioning, mini bar. It had been fairly recently upgraded and was very clean. The en-suite bathroom was lovely. They did an excellent breakfast in the morning and I honestly can't thank the friendly staff enough for coming to our rescue. Our apartment was sorted out the following day and the staff even ordered a taxi for us when we were leaving. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again or recommend them.
From a very grateful family.

Great Value for Rome!

Hotel Nerva is centrally located. It is next to the Forum, down the road from the Colosseum, making everything accessible by foot. It is located on a side street, making it quiet at night and off the beaten path. There is a pub just down the road (The Surge) which is great. Ask for Eddy.

Hotel Nerva is a limited amenity establishment, but it has a very home-like feel. The breakfast is served each morning from 6:30 to 9:00, and you get to know the people who work there. The breakfast is very good. As you would expect from any hotel, they can help you with local information, directions, calling a cab (which we only did for the trip to the airport) and many other things.

The rooms were basic and small in size (if you're used to American hotel rooms as we are). If you have ever stayed in NYC, you are familiar with these types of rooms. You have room to move around, but not much else. This was fine for us since we literally only showered and slept in the rooms, which you likely do as well. The rooms also did a great job of keeping out the outside noise and light. Ask for a street view if it's available. You will be looking directly at a wall of Augustus' Forum right across the street, but it's cool nonetheless. Our friends had a view of the inside rooftop, and was less exciting.

They have some adapters and converters at the desk for you electronics, which was also very helpful. The website lists laundry as a service, which is not onsite. I'm not sure what they are speaking of, but they directed us to one on the main road near the hotel, which worked out just fine.

We paid 170 Euros a night, which we thought was a great deal compared to other hotels at the time (we stayed 5/24/07 to 6/2/07). As I read on other travelers' posts, they are weird with the credit card thing, as most of Rome area is. They wanted us to pay the entire amount (over 2000) in cash. When I told them that wasn't possible, they wanted us to pay three or four hundred Euros in cash and the rest on the credit card. While I wanted to do that for them since I'm sure it has to do with tips or payoffs, we had all our cash accounted for and could not. They reluctantly took the card.

Overall, great experience with the hotel since the focus of Rome is the sites. This hotel gets the job done and with the price plus location makes for an outstanding value.

cosy and close

by TripAdvisor Member knitting_danica

I was totally surprised when I read such negative reviews. My boyfriend and I stayed at Nerva for five nights in December and enjoyed it very much. The room was very clean (though a bit on the small size) and we were just a hop away from everything. Breakfast was nice, served by friendly older ladies in a quaint dining room. We used the airport service they offered both to and from the airport without a problem. Yes, they did ask us to pay in cash, but we simply told them it wasn't possible and they accepted our credit card. I would stay there again and believe that it is a good value for Rome.

Great location - average room

by TripAdvisor Member LeoBaby

This location could not be better for exploring ancient rome. Everything is easily within walking distance: the Collosseum, the ruins, the Vatican.

The room is average, but we spent little time actually in the hotel. Staff was friendly, but we could not use Visa, which was beyond frustrating (Visa was down for a week???).

Great Location

by TripAdvisor Member benitomex

I stayed on January 6 for two nights. The first thing you notice it its great location just behind the Roman Forum. You literally have to cross this romantic histoical place every time you go out of you hotel . From Termini station the taxi charged us only 7 Euro. The room (206) was o.k to fit an extra bed for our son, but the shower was really smallĀ” (70cm x 70 cm.) Staff was very friendly and prepared great capuccinos in the morning for breakfast. In short: Excellent location, average room, small shower, friendly staff. Would I return? Yes.

Great Place to stay

by TripAdvisor Member Mikes-in-Rome

Walked in while we were in that area. It turned out to be better than Marriot in terms of value. The owner was very friendly and accomodating. Two of us had an excellent stay for 3 days. Great location, very central. "We left very happy", and when in Rome my wife wants to stay in Nerva".

Great location

by TripAdvisor Member Elianne

We enjoyed staying here. Like many small European hotels, the room was small and could have done with a little updating, but you couldn't beat the location. Literally a 5 minute walk to the Roman Forum, 7 minutes to the Colosseum, and 15 minutes to the Trevi Fountain. And the room was fairly quiet for being in a big city. After reading the many other reviews, I did worry a bit about the cash payment problem that some seemed to have. Sure enough, mid-way through our stay, the owner asked me very nicely if we could pay partly in cash. We agreed to pay half in cash. When we checked out, they had problems with their credit card machine and we ended up paying the total bill in cash, after they dropped 10 Euros per night off the price for our inconvenience. As I had anticipated this might happen, we weren't put out at all by this. (The place we stayed in Venice also gave us a discount for paying in cash, so I guess that's the Italian way.) The staff were all nice as well. We would stay here again.

Great Hotel, Bring Cash

by TripAdvisor Member stevemclin

We spent a total of 12 days here -- with a week in the middle to go to Croatia.

It was laughable to see the guests trying to use credit cards == clearly the management didn't want to pay taxes on the payments.

Totally great location offsets the quirkiness -- breakfasts were a lot of fun.

Had a real small room == then got in a larger one. Bathrooms the size of a small closet in the US -- but functional.

For the price -- a great deal and location

I found this hotel after much searching, and exhausting all entries in the lonely Planet and Rick Steeves guide books. It was 190E per night, so not cheap by any means, but in Rome it is quite difficult to find reasonable priced rooms - and we were there October 4-7th, 2007. We found out this was one of the absolute most expensive, and busy weeks of the year. If you go end of November/December, you may pay half price for the room. The room itself was cute, small, and the shower was TINY, but the room was totally soundproof, nice and dark, and immaculately clean. It was under 10 minutes to walk to the Coliseum and across from the Forum, so in an absolutely great location. Take a GPS if you can - it was still a challenge getting to the sites - the GPS can lead you back home. The brothers Umberto and Amelio were both very welcoming - they came out to greet our cab, and then helped us inside. They took us around the corner to introduce us at the restaurant, Watch the restaurants and don't order anything without asking "Quanta Costa" - unless you have unlimited funds. You may get a big surprise at the end. Anyhow, there are lots of pubs and restaurants near by also. We had a lovely stay in Rome, and our hotel was a good part of it.

I have been looking at the forum before pop in the following.

How is the best way from Fumiccino Airport to Via Tevere. I can not seem to find info about this area ( Via Tevere), we are renting a flat there. Any info would be highly appreciatted. Thanks

Re: Rome

by mccalpin

"Best" way is such a relative term, as it depends on your time, money, amount of luggage, mobility, linguistic ability, etc.

If money is no object, then the easiest way is to take a taxi or limo. The official taxis are outside the terminal in a queue (ignore everyone inside pitching rides). Since this location is outside the city center, you won't be eligible for the fixed fares, so you'll be on the meter. I am guessing 55-60+euro. Or look at monorailgold's Rome page or the Rome forum for references to limo and/or shuttle services. It won't be much (or any) cheaper, but you'll know the fare upfront and they'll be waiting for you at the airport, and you'll be able to work out any special needs in advance like number of people, excess luggage, etc.

If money is an object, then take the Leonardo Express to Termini (11 euro each), then take a taxi up to Via Tevere. Again, go to the taxi queue out front at Termini, ignore the people in the terminal. Note that if you have 3 or more people, this won't save you a lot of money (or, if 4, maybe none at all).

To get from Fiumicino to Via Tevere, I would suggest you take a train to Termini. From Termini, take the metro to 'Spagna' then Via Tevere is a 5/10 minute walk(along the Corso D'Italia). Check out Google Maps
