Very nice hotel that managed to avoid the many modernisation gags that have destroyed the atmosphere in so many formerly great hotels - without feeling dusty, at all. Yes, the corridors and the lift could do with a new coat of paint, but who cares. My room was spacious and lovely, with a private terrace overlooking the rooftops; perfect for having breakfast while catching the first rays of the sun. It's a small hotel. Take the Danieli in the sixties, cut it up and let a small piece of it overgrow with vines in the middle of Rome: voilà, the Raphael. Staff exceptionally nice and well-trained. Location unbeatable.
we stayed in the navona sutie and it was terrific. we celebrated my wife's birthday and they supplied us with cake, champagne, fruits and gifts. the shower was not great and could use instructions as it had many features.
Excellent central location just off Piazza Navona. Nice rooms, well decorated. Staff friendly. Bedroom was too hot at night - air conditioning had been turned off.
Luxurious; great location and views from roof terrace Reception staff OK but not overly helpful, waiters / waitresses very helpful; expected food, drink etc. to be expensive but was actually exhorbitant
Proximity to the sights
evry thing is excellent staff is excellent the hotel is away from metro you should use taxi but no broblem as the hotel is central the taxi will not cost a lot no room service after 11 pm
The staff were very efficient and pleasant. Very good location for siteseeing and shopping in the heart of Rome. Very good restaurant with quick efficient service.
All staff were very kind The gym was not confortable, very cool and not any matress at the floor for exercices, not sauna ??
fantastic location, ambience and service
- The location. - The services. Nothing
location, view, comfort, services speed of in room house keyboard internet very slow
location Altough it has been mainteined good, the building is very old.
Excellent location - so close to thre Pantheon and walking distance from main sights.
Location Small room.
The location was why we chose this hotel. We were a twenty minute hoof to St. Peter's one way, and five minutes to the Coliseum the other way. It was a great home base from which to explore the eternal city. We were also surprised when they upgraded our room at check in. Room size was outstanding for an older hotel. We've stayed in many dozens of old hotels throughout Europe, so we are not surprised when some parts of the experience are a little ragged. It had been unusually warm. I figured the building's environmental systems had been switched over to heat for the winter, so our room was uncomfortably warm. After a shower, the tub took a long time to drain fully. The minibar was restocked before our second night. Even though we took nothing from it, we were charged for items used by previous guests. Lastly, we did not get turn-down service on our last night. But these kinds of missed details are typical for Europe, and did not bother us.
The roof restaraunt and bar were great. The room was small and the bed matress was very hard and uncomfortable. The rooms were too modern--when you go to Europe you want to stay where the rooms are old fashion and full of past times.
The hotel was what I expected, and suited all my requirements The terrace restaurant and bar on the roof of the hotel is a huge disappointmnet. As a woman travelling alone I was made to feel distinctly unwelcome. Moreover, the food was not what one would expect at the price.
Location, Roof Terrace Room was poor, not refurbished, Bidet did not work (water pressure low), dark, looking to the inner side. We booked a room directly at Hotel Minerva in December 2009 and got a much better, larger room for the same price. Obviously booking.com is getting the low-cost left-overs.
Service was superb. Classic elegance and at the same time, very convenient. Access from the main Piazza and to the marina.
location, staff they cleaned our room just when we put "please make up our room" note; no russian TV channesl
Very good location Its a little pricey
the hotel staff was very pleasant and helpful
Overall very good exprience.However we did feal that some of the staff could improve their attitude towards customers Customer Service.
Great location, nice big bathrooms, spacious rooms in general. Nice comfortable accommodation, walking distance to everything (including nightlife and many major attractions). Bellhops were very nice, but some of the desk staff was slightly unfriendly and unhelpful. Restaurant staff asked us to leave table (in beautiful garden) after finishing coffee to make room for other guests but there were many other tables. Guest service not the hotel's strongest area in my brief experience.
Great location, beautiful hotel, rooms are very large and comfortable; staff is friendly - we loved this hotel !!!!
Staff where very friendly and cheerful, the court yard was beautiful and the location fantastic.
Loved the courtyard which was peaceful in middle of big city. Hotel was quiet - unusual for Rome. Great location, near stacks of excellent restaurants - Pierluigi was the best ! Relative to other cities, Rome, and this hotel over are way priced.
Beautiful hotel in perfect location, many fine amenities. A contemporary haven in old Rome.
We had a 5th floor room with an outlook over surrounding streets and river. We were able to check in a little early and checkout a little late with no problems. Staff were helpful and efficient.
Location Graffiti and beer bottle drinkers outside nightly
Location Comfort ok, beds a bit too firm. Reception staff were cordial and helpful. Bar staff were going to overcharge for beverage until I pointed out the correct price in menu. Don't know if intentional or not, but you would think they know the correct pricing as advertised in their menu. Our room was on third level on the side where the hotel entrance is located. This area can be noisy at night, especially on weekends when people are walking on the street and street musicians (which hung out a few doors down from the hotel) are playing. The rooftop terrace is nice but the views are limited and there were many yellow jackets/hornets around the evening appetizers at the bar.
Friendly, helpful staff. Clean & bright. Reasonably priced considering it is in the centre of Rome. We intend to return to the city & intend to stay at the Cosmopolita again.; The room was slightly small. The shower cubicle was very small.
location is wonderful, right in the city center very noisy on Sunday night with disco pub downstairs till midnight, room is very small and narrow, too expensive with such poor facility
the Place no view from the window
I would recommend this hotel for its cleanliness, fantastic location and very friendly staff.
Couldn't ask for better location as a first time visitor. You can reach all the tourist spots on foot (that's what I did even though bus stops are only round the corner). Very good breakfast. Room size - so small that I couldn't find any space to put my 'closed' suitcase.
location of the hotel is excellent for all main attractions and restaurants The hotel staff were unfriendly and a touch unhelpful, especially reception. Breakfast was a little disappointing too
Location was excellent - also had very good lunch, breakfast and coffee facilities
Hotel is centrally locaed; its public spaces are modern and our standard room, which appeared to have been recently renovated, had a nice old world charm with high ceilins and beautiful finishes.
Very well located, confortable and good value for price. Room quite small, but acceptable for short accomodation.
A well priced hotel in a great central location. I took my parents who have mobility problems and the area is flat and easy to walk around.
Good atmosphere, nice staff, comfortable and interesting location away from the city centre business district. The hotel only provides a buffet breakfast. The bar is not open. There are plenty of excellent bars and a full range of resturants nearby.
Everything was fantastic! The room was exceptionally (and promptly) cleaned each day; the breakfast buffet was outstanding; the desk personnel were friendly and extremely helpful; and, the hotel environment was extremely pleasant! I have no complaints whatsoever, and when in Rome, I will stay there again, and will recommend my friends do as well. I did notice several us people on the website complain generally about small hotel rooms in Rome. I suspect these folks do not get around Europe much! Real estate is incredibly pricy and space does not come cheap! Us travelers need to be prepared to spend $130 usd or more a night for a room that will be much smaller than the typical us economy hotel room. that is the norm in rome! Stop complaining! Focus on the beauty of the setting and hotel, the convenience of location, and the experience of being in a world class city!
Great location, lovely & helpful staff, comfortable rooms, nice communal areas, wonderful breakfast. The bed was a little hard for my taste.
Very good location, but facilities are a bit old. The toilet did not flush.
excellent location, good staff, good breakfast small rooms
The room was very comfortable. The location was in a nice quiet location yet close to many of the city attractions, and the breakfast was superb. A real little gem.
Location great, very central. Room decor very dated, musty smell in room (couldn't open windows). Tv took about 5 seconds to change channel - not great when you are flicking looking for english language!
Excellent location in quiet knook but only 2 blocks to Campo Di Fiori and all the action. We requested and received a room overlooking the beautiful gardens of the French Embassy. Hotel is in very quiet area adjacent to Piazza Farnese and is within easy walking distance of all the major areas - Campo, Pizza Navonna, Pantheon, Trevi, etc. Loads of resturants, cafe's, shops, bars in the vicinity. Very clean room much larger than most European hotels typically are. Very nice size bath and shower. Very comfortable room and in a great location. The hotel staff replied to e-mail requests prior to our trip for room confirmation and arrangements for transportation from airport literally within the hour our requests were sent. Nothing we did not like.
All in all excellent. The first hotel in Italy with the most friendly staff we've ever experienced. The breakfast is verry good as well compared to other hotels. I praise the staff of this Hotel. Great Job and well done. All in all excellent
Great location!! Rooms were good size. Our family of 5 ( 2 teenagers and one small child) had a classic double and a deluxe triple interconnecting rooms...worked out well..staff was friendly and again very central, liked that it was a little away from the busy people and traffic areas. Would be great if they could update the furnishings a little.
Location was excellent. Staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was more than adequate. Room was clean and comfortable.
The location to all the great areas of Rome was it's best feature; however, I did love our room and the views from the two large windows out into the neighborhood. A really good experience.
the restaurant was very good the staff approachable and friendly also the bathroom and room very comfortable non applicable
The location of the hotel was good for sight-seeing and was quiet and peaceful.
friendly staff; location; cleanliness last 1,5 days we did not get bathroom amenities/towels changed/refurbished (out of 3 nights stay) - for the price (even special offer) of it this should have not happen
Location and room excellent. Majority of the staff attentive and helpfull Would appreciate english papers and more international food menu
Location. Within walking distance of most sites Dated looking rooms
The location is fantastic. 5 minuts walk from piazza navoni, Trevi fountain, via condotti. Hotel is very nice, with big old style rooms, each one different from the other. You have to wait too much for the lift
Brilliant location - within walking distance of all the landmarks except the Vatican. Given an upgrade on check-in but the room was a huge disappointment. 2 single beds on mezzanine floor, a double sofa bed downstairs with a hard frame, one bedside table and no bedside lights. But happily Reception did move us next morning.
The hotel is really near everything ( coliseum, testevere, vatican (25 min walking), piazza novona ( 25 min walking ). Great staff and really polite. The bathroom is a like smaller, but it works
Location, Location, Location! Location for value was unbeatable! Maybe a little more hominess - but that is just to be critical. The rooms the location and the staff were off the charts!!!
A good quiet room with a good location Restaurant not open and breakfast was a shambles. therefore overpriced.
Extremely clean rooms, garden tables for dining outside were delightful, breakfast & lunch meals were local and wonderfully presented We couldn't understand dinner - we waited to be seated but were ignored - it seemed to be some sort of happy hour/buffet/private function despite the menu being visible on a board. Only one conceirge was helpful/knowledgable with regard sightseeing directions.
very central for walking to and from city centre, also walking distance to Trastevere.
It was perfectly positioned for exploring Rome I enquired about returning in October with my wife, I would not pay the full rate of 340 euros per night, so it looks like Prague
fantastic loaction - walking distance to many sites
the central location, close to most of the main historic sights, very clean and new accommadation ,staff allways helpfull. none
New hotel with in a very good location. Also includes a very good restaurtant.
Excellent location and friendly--helpful staff. Hotel was everything we were looking for on vacation and even better.
the good approach of the staff our room was too much nosy
got upgraded - room very nice beds very hard but after a day of sighseeing i could have slept on the floor and not noticed.
location, view noise due to loaction
The location. The hotel in next to the best square in Rome. There are many different musicians that frequent the area and you can meet people from all over world. The party goes on into the early morning. No
The situation across from the Pantheon was the reason for our choice of Hotel Sole al Pantheon. The Piazza della Rotonda is a beautiful view from the second floor where we stayed. Too few tables in the otherwise beautiful breakfast room.
The Staff were very accomodating, spoke excellent English and were very very pleasant!!. It was what it says on the box - a 4* hotel - not a 3* posing as a 4*!!! The air conditioning units for the whole hotel were right on top of our room, and caused the walls and doors to vibrate! The hotel stafff were really good about this and agreed to turn it off between 23:00 and 08:00 in the morning so as not to disturb our sleep! I'm sure we never would have had another hotel offer to do this! Great Breakfast (although I would suggest not watering down the orange juice). Fantastic location - central to everything! All in all a well run hotel, and a very pleasurable stay! No - it was just right!
Excellent location and great staff, right on the piazza across from the Pantheon. Room size was good and bathroom was as well. Staff was very attentive. View was awesome. Bed was very firm. Breakfast was poor.
When we eventually got the room we had requested and paid for in advance we were quite pleased with it. Breakfast was extremly poor,breakfasting room was tiny and the hotel had no recognisable lounge area.On our first night our reserved and paid suite was given to another party.The rooms to the front are noisey with frequent and numerous musicians during the day.Bottles are collected noisily from all the cafes in the square at 0800.A truck washes the streets at 0200 am. If you have an internal room and it rains then you are kept awake all night by the sound of rain falling on the canvas of the external breakfasting room.The internal cooridoors are hot.Some front desk staff barely have the courtesy to greet you as a guest.
This hotel is well situated on the P. Rotonda, in front of the ancient Pantheon in center of Rome. It is an old hotel and has annexes nearby with apartments. Our stay at the annex apartment was good, but the level of comfort was not that as in the actual hotel... and the furnishings are dated and stale. Our apartment was three star at the very best. The apartment annexes are old and stale and need a fresh up on furnishings... they are not at the same standard as the four star hotel itself, and I have stayed far nicer three star hotels in Rome.
Excellent location in historic square. Very comfortable rooms with fabulous views of the Pantheon.
Fabulous location. Great rooftop terrace. Staff is not especially friendly. We were never able to get our "free" drinks at the American Bar.
The staff was very friendly and was very efficient to answer all our questions. The hotel it self is beautiful and the view is fantastic. The location of the hotel is perfect.
The standard of the cuisine and the ambience of the rooftop bar
central location the restaurant was above us, and we couldn!t sleep all night, because of the noise.
The location is excellent, and the view from the restaurant is one of the best in Rome. Staff were excellent.
Unique atmosphere of the hotel at the center of Rome
A good view of Roman Forum from the room. A good restaurant and service. Breakfast can be a little bit better but fresh orange juice was nice.
I loved just everyting about the Forum hotel, fantastic staff, warm reception and lovely food - what more could you ask for no - just everything was fantastic
The location of the Forum is truly outstanding. The family room is great for a family of 4 and the restaurant is lovely - great food and great view The wifi network doesn't work and is expensive if it did.
Everything we expected we got and then some. Food is excellent. The roof top bar was a delight at sunset. The staff was more than helpful in every way. Wish I could remember their names, they're first class. Location is great. The only con we had was the mattress was very stiff.
The location is nice. I use to travel extensively for work, and I can tell you it is the worst value for money hotel I have ever stayed in. The room had the tiniest bed I ever saw and the TV screen very small. It could be cleaner. It had a very modest breakfast with little choices. The receptionist was really rude.
Superb location, RIGHT next to The Forum, just blocks from The Colosseum and adjacent to several restaurants. Standard rooms run a bit small, as all classic European hotels do, but was clean n cozy and felt like home in no time. Top floor restaurant was good and panoramic view was excellent. The true gem at this hotel, however, was the amazing staff, who were all pleasant and helpful and genuinely offered hospitality every single time I came into contact with any of them. Definitely a smaller, boutique style property but the excellent staff n superb location make Hotel Forum top notch. Recommended. Would stay again.
great location. walking distance to all important tourist sites. nice decorations, friendly staff, could pay for internet access on their computer in the lobby pillows were hard as rocks
A nicely located hotel mixing modern amenities and an old-world atmosphere (including the cage lift). Some nice resraurants in the area as well.
the location and breakfast are fine. they r bunch of liars!! the reception told me i will stay in a single room i booked for the first night then they are gonna change me to a double room on the second night as a gift. it turns out they put me in a room that i can hear everything happened on the street!! its not possible to fall asleep in that room!! And after i talked two of their managers im pretty sure they do the same thing over and over again. All i wanna say is that room shouldnt be used as a hotel room anymore and the stuff there should stop lying!!!!!!
The location was excellent. The Breakfast was very good. The hotel staff spoke perfect English and helped us in every way. Honestly the pillows hurt my head. Not much to complain about. The room was clean, the safe worked, the breakfast was wonderful, it was family friendly.
Very central location Showers in the rooms were very poor standard.
Perfect location. Stayed 5 nights, had a problem with our room on the first night, spoke to the desk about it in the morning and they upgraded us at no extra cost for the other 4 nights, which was great. Breakfast good. Loved Rome. Hotel could do with a face lift, it is looking rather tatty in places and is a little pricey. The hotel restaurant, which is not run by the hotel serves awful food and is expensive too, so go further afield if you can. dont go to the restaurant that the hotel recommends called Crisciotti in via del buschetto, the food is ok but they rip tourists off by offering you discounts then sticking extras on your bill and overcharging you for other things. This happened to us and another couple while we were there. There are plenty of other nicer places to eat.
Excellent Location. Within 15 minutes walk of all the main sites, Colloseum, Trevi fountain etc. Vatican City only ten minutes by bus which can be picked up very close to the hotel, hotel also sells bus tickets. Also very close to some reasonably priced restaurants, which reception helpfully pointed us towards heading North up Nazionale round the back streets. Room very clean and very tastefully decorated. Air conditioning worked well, room was quiet. Staff very polite. Nice little snack bar directly opposite which will do you pannini and a soft drink for two for 11 euros (about £7 at the time of writing) Tried to sell us the more expensive Limo (50 euros) to take us back to Ciampino Airport, when taxi cabs are fixed fee of 30 Euro both ways for this journey. Shower cubicle was very small, they had a large massage type shower unit, but for some reason had fitted it with only a half size shower tray. I am only 5' 9'' but struggled turning round and washing in the shower without hitting my knees and elbows!!!
Closeness to historic sites Lack of coffee making facilities in the room
Location which puts you 5 minutes away from all major tourist attraction. Very clean rooms, decent breakfast, front desk staff very helpful. Definitly good value for money. Poor pastry at the breakfast. A bit noisy at night, but it comes with the location.
excellent location elevator was old and scary
