Convenient To Termini Station
After a long air flight from San Francisco we wanted some place that was close to Termini Station and did not involve a taxi ride or subway ride. The Yes Hotel met that need being less than four blocks or five minutes from the station. The hotel's signage on Via Magneta is not too visible so it might take a second or third look to make sure you are at the right place.
Our room on the second floor contained two double beds and was of average size. The bathroom was slightly larger and contained a shower with good water pressure and plenty of hot water. The air conditioning had not yet been turned on but the room maintained a relatively pleasant temperature and was easy to sleep in. Noise from the street with the windows open was minimal since Via Magneta is not a particularly noisy street.
The breakfasts every morning were very good with a wide assortment of rolls, cheeses, meats, cereals and other items. New items were added daily. Coffee was better than average.
The staff were helpful and all members of the front desk staff spoke English.
Since we booked the hotel several months in advance and paid in cash the rate was 104 euros a night. Had we waited to two weeks or so before coming the rate would have been at least 40 euros higher. Looking at their rate schedule I found that the same room varies in price from 68 euros to nearly 200 depending on the time of year. Best advice is to book early and pay in cash to receive an approximate five per cent discount.
Unique Quality: A good location and quiet rooms. The hotel is not only convenient to Termini Station but is also within a short walking distance of markets, restaurants and the subway.
Directions: A few short blocks from the Termini Station.
I stayed for three nights and was a little concerned that it was so close to the Station as I knew that wasn't the best area, but I didn't need to worry. The location was excellent and so easy to find, just off the main road at the side of the station. The hotel was much more 'plush' than I had expected for the price I had paid. (www.booking.com) The reception was small but the welcome was big (what a cliche!) My room was accessed via another door in the street which was next door to the hotel. Oh no, I thought, the annex, but it was superb and just as 'plush' as the hotel and the added convenience of not having to go through reception when I came back late. Breakfast was taken in the dining room of the hotel. Quite a small room but the food was super. There was the usual continental with rolls, cheese, salami, ham etc, but there was also eggs, sausages and bacon at no extra cost, which is unusual for a capital city hotel. I absolutely loved it and would go there again when in Rome next.
Unique Quality: Tremendous location, fabulously friendly and helpful staff and good choice of breakfast. If you love walkiing, as I do, then this is an ideal location as everything within the 'eternal triangle' of main attractions is close at hand.
Directions: Close to the main rail station. Come out of the main entrance and turn right to the road leading along the station. Via Magenta is parallel to this road on the other side of the buildings.
Wonderfull New Rome Hotel
This 3 star centrally located hotel was the perfect base from which to visit the city centre, and the actual accommodation was definately a cut above the usual 3 star hotel. We initially chose the hotel or it's modern design and well presented web site and weren't dissappointed. The decor is ultra modern with glass chandeliers and leather furnishings and the rooms were very comfortable. We were able to book a city tour with the reception staff and found their restaurant recommendations and discount cards to be very helpful. I would definately return to this hotel on my next trip to Rome, and can certainly recommend the breakfast which is well varied and the perfect start to a day in Rome.
Unique Quality: The main highlight of the hotel is the modern desgn. Upon entering there is a large reception desk in leather and there are plenty of glass chandeliers creating a soothing atmosphere. In the breakfast room there is a large plasma television and stainless steel furniture. The rooms have a controllable thermostat with AC and are equipped with plasma televisions, electroni safes and cool, crisp bedding in neutral colours. It was a great retreat at the end of a heavy day sightseeing.
Directions: You must exit from the Termini train station near platform No. 1 onto Via Marsala. Take a left onto Via Marsala followed by a right onto Via Vicenza and then a first left onto Via Magenta.
More about Yes Hotel
Yes Hotel gets a big Yes
My wife and I have just returned from a four night stay at the Yes Hotel. Having read the other reviews it seemed to be a good place to stay and we were not disappointed. It is easy to get to from the airport as the Terravision bus stopped outside Termini station and the hotel was not more than 5 minutes walk (with cases).
I was glad I had read the reviews as the hotel sign says "New York" and the only indication that you are in the right place is the name on the glass doors. (it is opposite the "Milani Hotel which has a massive sign).
The hotel receptionist was friendly and helpful and the rooms clean and quiet. It was very good value for money. There are loads of restaurants within a 2 minute walk and fast food and a supermarket in the termini.
It is easy to travel to anywhere in Rome from the Termini and Fontana de Trevi and Colosseum were about 20 minutes walk.
I have nothing negative to say about the hotel it was great. As a test - would I stay there again and recommend it to a friend? - "Yes".
Very comfortable, friendly and helpful reception
We, two families of four, returned a week ago from a 3 nights holiday in Rome and stayed at Yes Hotel in two quadruple rooms. Although the area of the hotel was not one of the best within Rome (being near Termini station) it was very comfortable and the rooms were very spacious for each family. The bathroom/toilet was very modern and over all we couldn't have had a better hotel for our 3 nights stay. Although we had a lot of problems with our baggages as Alitalia left behind our baggages both ways from the destination we were flying from and as we could not communicate with them in English as they were very rude, we asked the hotel receptionist to help us track our baggages. Needless to say they were brilliant in dealing with it and we really appreciate their help especially the receptionist called Agnes for her sweet smile and friendly assistance. Their breakfast was very good although they could improve their coffee. The summary is that we had three comfortable and peaceful nights at this hotel and I would definitely stay there again if needed.
I booked 2 nights through the hotel website about 3 weeks ago. We received email confirmation. When we arrived on the check-in day, the front desk staff told us that there was a "technical problem" in that room. There was no other room available. He suggested us to go to one of the B&B of the hotel group and mentioned that the room is nice with private toilet. He offered a "great discount price" of Euro 110 per night for the B&B room in view of their fault.
As I and my wife arrived late with lots of luggage and did not want to spend time on searching for another hotel, we bargained with him for Euro 100 per night for the B&B room. He then called the B&B reception and told us that he had reserved a nice room for us.
When we arrived the B&B, a lady informed us that the room with private toilet was occupied by another guest. The lady is very nice and we bargained a good price for a normal room. During our bargain of the room price with her, we noted that the price per night for the room with toilet is around Euro 95 per night. (which is lower than the "great discount price" from the Yes hotel front desk staff).
I noted that there was similar cases mentioned in previous reviews about the "technical problem" issue. Besides, the so called "great discount price" is actually higher than normal price. Completely lack of trust!
Don't expect a smile.
Stayed at the Yes hotel for 3 nights in October 2007. The property is modern and the room was clean and comfortable. Average sized hotel room but I imagine it was quite a good size by Rome standards. Nice bathroom with some toiletries provided. Modern TV with good range of channels (mainly in Italian but hey you're in Italy!).
While I have no real complaints about the hotel the service was at best indifferent and quite often simply rude. I had one minor issue when the lighting in the corrider failed (its all automatic from sensors). This meant that once I stepped outside my room it was pitch black until I reached the lift. My room was the furtherest away along a very narrow long corrider. I mentioned this to reception and was told that there was no problem and I must have been confused. There was no attempt to remedy the problem (which didn't exist!). While this is a minor issue as a female travelling along it did make me a little uncomfortable as anyone could have been waiting in the entirely ptich black corrider.
The other point worthy of mention is the location. For me personally I didn't find the area too inspiring. Again I was very conscious of my personal safety as a female travelling alone. I had one man follow me (in broad daylight) but I am quite convinced he was after my bag. I simply wandered into an internet cafe until he got fed up waiting. So I never felt in any personal danger but the area is a little confronting. But no worse than most areas around major metropolitan train stations. Just be prepared is all.
Near Termini...great for train travel
We needed someplace close to the Termini because we wanted to take the train from the Airport and had an early train out the following day.
This place is really close!!!
It has been recently remodeled (nice IKEA type furniture, firm bed, flat screen tv, small but modern bathroom) and though small, served our purposes well. (a great place to crash for a night) we arrived on an early flight and they let us check in at 1030am!! No complaints
very good and clean hotel
i stayed at this hotel for 4 nights last week, i was bit worried as i had heard that the surrounding area was a bit run down and dodgy. but i honestly never saw anything to worry about. obviously there are nicer areas but this location was very good for the train station and right in rome!
the hotel itself is very very good with very clean and spacious rooms, nice staff and a half decent breakfast thrown in!
flat screen tvs and lovely comfortable bed.
i would recommend this hotel to friends and family.
Better than Expectations
We booked this hotel after changing from another using Trip Advisor reviews. We were very pleased indeed. Hard to imagine how they could make the rooms better. Very clean, fantastic decor. Would recommend it to my friends.
Watch out for thieves in Rome though. We were robbed twice.
Very "green" hotel
We booked this hotel for our last night in Rome. I wanted to stay here originally but no rooms were available so we had to settle for another hotel. =(
but....we saved the best for last!!
Hotel sign still says Hotel Newyork outside (thanks TA because I would have walked right by the hotel if I didn't know that)
The rooms were very clean & modern, everything was energy efficient which I really liked. Staff was great!! They gave us a map and showed us some good shopping places to check out!
Had a bath tub in our room and the room was very comfortable. No street noise, ext.
We had to leave early to catch are flight in the morning and there wake up call service (which was automated) worked fine! It was kind of neat because when I opened my room door to leave it was pitch black in the hall way and when you start to walk the motion sensor turns the lights on. Too cool!
We would stay here again without a doubt!
Great hotel with funky decor at a reasonable price. Tucked away in a quiet little street but very central to everything in Rome. Just round the corner to Termini train station although did not use as everything was within walking distance. Reception staff were very friendly and helpful and the room was very well furnished with a fab shower and some great electrical gadgets.
Would highly recommend this hotel!
On the Trenitalia site there is a service at Termini under the heading of Hotel Reservation. It is described as: Charge free hotel reservation in real time. Does anyone know what it means?
RE: Termini services
Just what it says: It's an office where you tell them what you want in a hotel and they phone around and find one for you. They will take a deposit which is then credited to your hotel bill. They are multilingual, including English.
Turn right as you leave the platform area, and it's near the exit at the end of the hall.
RE: Termini services
Yes... Hotel Reservation is a desk they have where you can make hotel reservations pretty much. They also have this in the airport. My husband and i used this when we missed our flight in Rome and thank god they were there because we found a hotel through them. They also have tranfers. So if you book a transfer and it says to please go to the "Hotel Reservation DEsk" this might be what it means.
RE: RE: Termini services
Yep, I didn't realize that some stations have this year-round (I had only seen them in the summer), but a temporary one in Florence bailed us out one year when we got there and discovered that the town was completely booked because of a fashion convention...they got us a place in Montecatini Terme, and we rode the train into Florence every day.
Look at Termini's website for more info - www.romatermini.it - under "Services"...well, to be truthful, it says only the same thing, but it will at least show you where the office is...
RE: RE: Termini services
To:dnwitte, Mari6625 and mccalpin. Thanks to all three of you. The information is much appreciated.
