    Rather mixed experiences. Serena is very well situated, near the Termini station (where the two metro lines cross each other and many buses stop) and near to the Santa Maria Maggiore church. Many pizzerias etc. nearby. Classic stylish interior. Stairs with broad 'marble' stair- treads. Beautiful art deco like 'half open' escalator with much wrought iron and glass. Room on 5th stock rather small (the two beds filled most op it), buth stylish and clean, with tv (RAI 1,2, 3, (Italian) MTV, BBC World News), good bathroom with shower, very good airco. Sufficient breakfast, although the sweetness (sugar) of al the bread is not really our preference. Friendly staff.
    Alas out stay was overshadowed firstly by the fact that the escalator seldom worked. And (the temparature being 34 degrees Celsius) climbing to our room meant mounting 130 steps!
    Far worse was the fact that on two of the three evenings (first time July the 20th,2010, from 19 o' clock, second time 21th of July already from 16 o clock) precisely on our stock electricity fell out! Effect: Key card didn't work, no light, no airco, no tv! In both cases the problem was only solved in the middle of the night, when suddenly the lights got on and the airco restarted.
    We were told that it was the fault of the electricity company and that neighbours had the same problem. Curiously enough lower floors of our hotel hadn't any problem.
    Although the hotel staff might be 'innocent', we were not amuse by their careless. shrugging attitude. In both cases we were not warned in advance when we came in and went to our room: they just smiled widely. Only after we asked for it the second evening it happend we got a pocket torch - but within 15 minutes the batteries were empty. So again 130 steps down and 130 steps up to get another...
    Only when we left we got something of an apology (from the wife of the owner).

    Simple hotel

    In other portal I had read not very nice reviews about this hotel and I didn't know what to expect in this hotel but all happens quite ok. Main things: cleanliness and helpful personal was ok.
    In addition location was ok because it was not far from Termini station and metro station.

    Directions: If you arrive by train, exit to Via Giovanni Giolitti, turn left then turn right to Vio Gioberti and then turn right to Via Principe Amedeo and shortly you will find hotel.

    The hotel Serena is located at a few ten metres run from the central Termini station, consequently it is a very good option if you arrive at Rome by train. Furthermore its location permets to reach easily the main monuments of the city.

    Unique Quality: There are good offers travelling in winter.

    All bedrooms have Satellite TV, Minibar, air-con, Telephone and safe.

    Breakfast is served at buffet

    Directions: Stazione Termini area

    If you arrive in Rome's Termini station, a small office opposite track 21 will find accommodation for you when you mention what you'd like to spend and what you're looking for.

    I was very lucky and got a clean, spacious single room with a modern bathroom, including breakfast for EUR40 (the low season rate) at Hotel Fiorini. The entrance is at Hotel Serena; it's all in the same building.

    Unique Quality: Very friendly staff, nice breakfast buffet (real Italian coffee!) and very clean!

    Directions: Two blocks southwest of Stazione Termini.

Re: Directions from Hotel Serena to Underground Ottaviano stop.

by mccalpin

Do we understand your question correctly? It's 4.5 kilometers on foot from this address to the Ottaviano stop (I used www.viamichelin.com in the same way as cgf used mappy.com) - this is going from near Termini to near the Vatican. If your destination is the Ottaviano stop, why not go downstairs at Termini and take Metro Line A over to that stop? On the other hand, this is certainly a doable walk..if you have an hour to spare ;-) Are we missing something here?
