More about Milton Roma
Good Value, good location, good hotel
Stayed here with my girlfriend and cant really complain about the place. Great location - just down the road from the Colesium. Metro station 15 meters away ( although closed for renovation).
The no shower curtain thing is a a bit of a pain but not a big deal.
Staff were courteous and fairly helpful. Breakfast was suprisingly good.
Room was a good size and clean, AC was fine and storage adequate.
The hotel will be great when its finally finished - lots of work still going on when we were there. Stepping over buckets, saws, builders everywhere.
Definitely recommend it
Not if traveling solo
This hotel is clean and has nice bathroom (it has a bathtub!!!). Neverhteless, I'm disapointed. The room lacks any style--I have a single room, it does feel like a monastary. The walls are very, very thin. I can hear other people's shower and early in the morning, before 6 am, the hotel staff mingling outside.
The hotel is out of the way. Yes, it's close to the coleseum. However, if you are looking to enjoy Roma's night life you will have to spend a lot of money on taxis (The train station accross the street is closed and there is only a bus that comes by, which you have to get from the main train station).
A great place to stay
Our group of 6 adults stayed there for 2 nights last week. The staff was wonderful and extremely helpful. The room was comfortable and clean. Of course all the furnishings were new.
The location is very good. The Metro station was about 4 blocks away and an easy walk. As soon as the station across the street re-opens, this hotel will be a very good base to explore Rome. The breakfast buffet was very filling (scrambled eggs, bacon, pasteries, bread, etc) and a perfect way to begin a busy day. There is an ATM (bankomat) 1/2 block away and several small cafes to eat.
I missed having a shower curtain, but it was easy enough to aim the shower head in a way that kept the floor dry. The internet in the lobby was expensive (4 euros for 15 minutes).
This hotel is a secret gem. In about 1 year it will be difficult to get a reservation here. I will definitely stay there if I return to Rome!
very pleasant stay
We vistited Rome for the first time on a short city break.
The hotel has just been refurnished to a high standard. Our room was a bit small and noisy as it was on a main road. The room had a basic necessities, but didn't have a kettle/ drink making facilities. It had a good quality shower but no bath. The shower curtain was ineffictive as water went everywhere.
Contintal breakfast was served between 7-11am and had a very good selection.
The hotel was situated 15 mins from the main bus/rail terminal and a 15 min walk from the colloseum (slow pace). The hotel will benefit greatly when the metro and tram stops are open as they are right opposite the hotel. We walked most of the time to the colloseum and a lot of the other attractions are in walking distance from here. The metro also stops at most of the other city attractions.
Overall we would recommend this hotel even more so when the metro and tram have re-opened.
Very clean and tidy
We stayed here recently and found the hotel to be in a good location. Hotel rooms were very tidy and everything was new and in good working order. Breakfast was great, a good selection and something for everyone. It was around 32-34 degrees celcius when we visited so a pool would have been great to cool off in after a day sightseeing but i dont think pools are common in many hotels in Rome (city). If i went back during summer i would probably try to find a hotel with a pool.
Staff were helpful and it was handy to the train station. A good hotel generally and ideal for short stays or business trips.
holds every promise
booked following reviews in this section. though construction work was still going on, everything was as expected. definitely meets its "star" category. (single-) rooms somewhat small, but everything on high (=contemporary) standard. was sort of crowded during breakfast, but I guess that's the daily procedure in every Roman place. would definitely stay there again!
Never go to this hotel alone!
I have stayed in this hotel for 4 nights, the location is good, but the single room is extermely small, it's the smallest room I have ever stayed in the world (if you have paid around USD$100 per night for a so-called 3-4 star hotel). There is even no bedside desk, the telephone was put on a chair.
The shower has no curtain, when you take shower you will make the whole bathroom all wet.
I have asked the staff to let me take a visit of the twin room, the size is OK.
Breakfast is the only thing I think good enough to meet the qulaity of 3-4 star hotel.
Would Stay Again - Recommended
Read the other reviews of the Hotel and was pleased that the reviews did it justice. Arrived over an hour before the official check-in time of 2:00pm and was pleased that the room was available as soon as we arrived.
It took us about 20 minutes to walk from the Termini Station (allowing for stopping to check the map to make sure we were still on the right track). Manzoni Metro station was still closed, which when it opens will surely add to the reasons to book this hotel as it is literally over the road from the Hotel Entrance. The closest Metro is only a ten minute stroll up the road and is on the line that serves the Termini (if you don't want to walk from the station), and also alot of the other sights to see, including the Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps and the Vatican. Metro was a little dirty looking but once on the train it was clean and spacious and quick to our destinations. Tickets were easy to obtain, either 4 Euros for the day or 1 Euro for a 75 minute valid ticket.
Room was very clean and modern looking, nice flat screen TV (though only CNN available in English), in room safe was handy to have, bathroom was small but nicely decorated. (Bath had a shower screen - update on the previous reviews). Minibar in room was stocked with prices not too expensive for a hotel of this class. Hotel was completely non smoking but the courtyard / parking area allowed smokers to nip out when needed.
Staff were very friendly and always available to assist with any questions we had regarding sight-seeing excusions etc and were able to book tickets on our behalf, (the open top city tour bus was a great way to get to the sights with a hop on hop off facility, pick up was from the Colleseum which was only 10-15mins stroll down 1 single road from the hotel. Staff were fluent in English.
Breakfast at the hotel was the perfect way to start the day, open from 7:00am through til 10:00am allowing plenty of room for early starts or late lay in's. Usual fare of continental options, cheese and ham with plenty of pastries, fruit, yoghurts etc and nice to have Bacon and Eggs for that homely feel if needed, the orange and carrot juice took a little getting used to but was quite nice by day two (there were other options).
Traffic noise from the roads outside was loud enough to be heard in our room but not enough to cause any problems, or call for the need for ear plugs. - The hotel IS in the middle of a city busy with traffic.
No restaurant in the Hotel for evening meals but within just a few hundred yards in any direction there seemed to be a multitued of Trattoria to tempt you in.
Check-out took a matter of a few seconds which was great when needing to head off to get the Terravision Shuttle from the Termini back to Ciampino.
Would definitely bear this Hotel in mind if ever returning to Rome. It certainly made our time in this wonderful city as enjoyable as possible.
This was a great hotel with good links into the city centre - Manzoni metro station is opposite but closed during our visit, but it was only a 5 minute walk to Piazza Vittorio Emanuele station and the buses are very convenient (bus stop 2 minutes away). Colosseum was walkable (about 15 mins for 2 reasonably fit 20 somethings but in very hot conditions). The room was clean, medium-sized and te bathroom was spotless. Above average breakfasts (especially the pastries and fresh buffalo mozzarella) and very helpful staff. We highly recommend I Buoni Amici restaurant, about 2 mins walk away - doesn't look much from the outside, but fantastic value (especially brilliant starter buffet), delicious food and impeccable service.
