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.
location, staff they cleaned our room just when we put "please make up our room" note; no russian TV channesl
location Altough it has been mainteined good, the building is very old.
location, view, comfort, services speed of in room house keyboard internet very slow
Location Small room.
Excellent location - so close to thre Pantheon and walking distance from main sights.
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.
- The location. - The services. Nothing
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.
Service was superb. Classic elegance and at the same time, very convenient. Access from the main Piazza and to the marina.
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.
The room was very good, good breakfast and it is near metro station. na
Great location, beds were comfy, rooms were nice.
We were upgraded from the annex to the main building so can't comment on the annex. A very simple but good quality breakfast served each morning. The decor and furnishings very tasteful, comfortable bed. The location is terrific, and the local restaurants seemed like they were there for the locals not just tourists. The hotel is small and compact as was the room. The room lacked natural light, and the shower was a bit on the small side, but manageable.
The fact that the staff were always available, very polite with a pleasant disposition, and helpful.
The location of the hotel was great, just a few hundered metres away from the collosium. The staff were very friendly and helpful.
The front desk staff was exceptional. The interior design was beautiful, the location was absolutely perfect - right next to the metro and colosseum. There were many (well priced) local shops and restaurants, but there weren't too many other tourists. They had great wireless internet connection as well. The only thing we were not very impressed about was that there was construction happening on the roof above our room - which was fine during regular hours, but one moring we wanted to sleep in and it had started at 7:30 (hammering right above our heads). All else was great, however.
Staff were very accomadating and made our stay a relaxing one. Hotel gives the impression of having more luxury on website than actual during visit. Room alot smaller than expected and dining facilities poor.
The english speaking staff were very helpful. Room very pleasent and the hotel is in atmospheric part of the city no.
Hotel staff, dislocation room
Location was perfect! It was clean and staff was friendly although sometimes service was slow because staff appeared to be limited. Although the hotel was quite adequate and I would stay there again for location alone, it was not exactly up to the standard I would expect for the price that was paid.
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.
Very well located, confortable and good value for price. Room quite small, but acceptable for short accomodation.
the Place no view from the window
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 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
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.
Location was excellent - also had very good lunch, breakfast and coffee facilities
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.
fantastic loaction - walking distance to many sites
very central for walking to and from city centre, also walking distance to Trastevere.
A good quiet room with a good location Restaurant not open and breakfast was a shambles. therefore overpriced.
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
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.
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.
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!!!
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
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 in historic square. Very comfortable rooms with fabulous views of the Pantheon.
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 friendly--helpful staff. Hotel was everything we were looking for on vacation and even better.
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.
location, view noise due to loaction
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
Fabulous location. Great rooftop terrace. Staff is not especially friendly. We were never able to get our "free" drinks at the American Bar.
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.
The location is excellent, and the view from the restaurant is one of the best in Rome. Staff were excellent.
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.
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.
central location the restaurant was above us, and we couldn!t sleep all night, because of the noise.
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.
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.
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
Unique atmosphere of the hotel at the center of Rome
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.
The standard of the cuisine and the ambience of the rooftop bar
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!!!!!!
excellent location elevator was old and scary
A nicely located hotel mixing modern amenities and an old-world atmosphere (including the cage lift). Some nice resraurants in the area as well.
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
Very central location Showers in the rooms were very poor standard.
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.
Closeness to historic sites Lack of coffee making facilities in the room
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!!!
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.
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.
Large rooms, good location, kind staff, nice breakfast
Efficiency, great room, good food, cool in hot weather
It is a newly decorated hotel. Excellent decoration at rooms, excellent decoration at restaurents on roof and at floor 1. Excellent breakfast Location is 5-10 minutes from Plaza Venece, but still it is 30 minutes walking from mid - city
The location of the Hotel. The service staff particularly in the reception area, and the fact that breakfast was included (not a small thing in Europe) The price for an additional bed in the bedroom where my 3 kids stayed, came out to almost what it would cost to have an additional room.
Great Location! Very friendly and helpful staff!! None!!
The location was great. It's a modern hotel very unlike other Rome hotels. It was very nice.
good location Hard to find. You need to make sure the taxi driver knows exactly its location.
The hotel is beautiful ! It is located walking distances to many attractions. The staff is wonderful!! The first day there they show you where the hotel is and how to get around. Being in such a busy location and you don't hear anything from the outside.
The location was great . The price was also in our budget. This was the end of our 10 day trip so we were happy with the hotel The breakfast was just continental . Nothing special so for 9 euros more it was not worth paying for. . All of our other hotels had breakfast included.
My bed was quite comfortable and I liked the close proximity to the Piazza Navona. The staff, when available, were always very friendly and helpful. The room was exceptionally clean and well appointed (beautiful view of the Chiesa Gesu and furniture) For the price, it would have been nice to have a 24 hour desk. It was a tad difficult to find from the street and access to the elevator for check-in was limited. The walls between rooms were thin. My room was close to the reception so could get noisy.
From the location, to cleanliness, to customer service. I will give this hotel 12 out of 10! I feel safe as it is a secured building and the front desk was so welcoming and willing to help us. The room was clean and within walking distance everywhere Nothing at all, besides the modern looking toilet seat is quite uncomfortable... it's a square shape toilet....
Staff.. Location. And cleanness.
good welcome providing interesting, information, excellent location, comfortable but small rooms, excellent staff, quiet in the middle of town
Everything was perfect! Very good position of the hotel for tourists.
Rooftop restaurant is very nice for breakfast and evening drinks before going out. Well located to pop back in the evening to change for dinner or catch an hours rest before going out for the night. Clean, if small, bathroom with plenty of towels and toiletries. Tea making facilities were good. Staff were very helpful. Nice touch to have water and cups by bed at night. Air conditioning a bonus. Beds were a little hard. Light duvets would be nicer than blankets. No spare pillows in wardrobe. TV was small and wall mounting would make for easier viewing. No mini bar.
Location and convenience. Rooftop bar very pleasant.
location was amazing, very central, very clean exactly what we wanted no
The location, it was in a central location and we were able to walk to most of the sites. It was also close to the stops where the buses are.
Location close to all attractions. Three great restaurants close by.Rooftop garden. Fast check in and out. excellent breakfast.
