We do require you to inform us of your expected time of arrival in advance (at least one day before your due check in date).
Location is great!
This hotel is very nice but there is no privacy!!! Walls are paper thin & sliding door need to be replace with a more sound proof & secure door!! When paying for room they did not accept my Amex......should not let you secure a room with a Credit card if they don't accept it!
It was great to be free to come and go like we had our own place, and yet with Tommaso always on call for any indications. A perfect compromise!
Toilets are interesting... but should they be treated as a design item? :-)
The local tips and the location
It was noisy in the evenings due to the location.
The location (Trastevere) is great, there are loads of bars and places to eat (good for people watching!) and the area itself is very picturesque. Tomaso (Hip Suites owner) was very friendly and helpful with suggestions for things to do besides the usual Rome attractions (as well as sorting out tickets for the Vatican) which helped us get a real feel for the city. We upgraded to a junior suite room which was very comfy and stylish and which also had a laptop with internet which was a bonus.
Great location, beautiful room, excellent service! Thank you Luca and Tomaso for your interesting advice and hints! Very interesting was the laptop in the room to make on-line reservations for musea, check bus lines, etc ...
We loved everything about Hip Suites. The suite design is super contemporary - just our style. We loved the stark contrast between the new, clean, hip design on the inside, then walking outside to the old Italian streets. Everything was super, super clean. The ac was nice and cold. The staff was helpful and friendly. The location cannot be beat; it's right in the heart of Trastevere with plenty of restaurants (and gelato!) within walking distance as well as the main tram (Tram 8) to city center. Hip Suites also has airport transfer service less expensive than other hotels. If we ever return to Rome, we will definitely stay at Hip Suites.
It wasn't a problem for us, however potential guests need to know that the staff is not available 24/7. They are there during main working hours, and pre-arranged upon your arrival (even if your arrival is at midnight). Also, the walls are thin and therefore noisy neighbors can be heard. It was only a problem for us two nights when new arrivals came in late and woke us up.
