Hotel Review Rome

Rome Hotel Review: You may have noticed the "Why do we recommend these hotels?" below some of our hotel listings.
The reality is that finding a Hotel in Rome that is suitable for your requirements is not a simple task. The most common complaints by guests are usually about room size and cleanliness, staff attitude, noise and inadequate breakfast. The fact of the matter is that staying in a Rome Hotel will most likely not be similar to the experience you have back home...

Some Hotel owners feel that their hotels' close proximity to a top tourist attraction more than compensates for the small rooms, poor service and inadequate breakfast. Many hotels publish false information about their room sizes, condition, and how far they are from the nearest tourist attraction. It's not uncommon that some hotels in Rome will perform major renovations while still keeping the hotel open to guests!
And many times these issues are not related to stars or even price.

Some Roman and Italian business people have a different idea about professionality, service and accountability. Ouch! Sorry, I'm not trying to knock anybody (why would I? My website is very special to me, and I love Rome), but I'm only giving you this information so that you may make educated decisions about your accommodation and holiday.

It's for these and many other reasons that we have included only the top rated Hotels (based on consistently good reviews by many different guests) in our Rome Hotels & Hotel Review Rome pages.
And in the case where either ourselves or family have actually stayed at the hotels and can vouch for the good reviews then we have included them at the top of some of our pages.

I would like you to find a Hotel that will satisfy and surpass your requirements, without breaking the budget of course, and that will enhance, rather than taint, a wonderful Rome experience.

Most important things to keep in mind:

  • Always read the guest reviews of the Hotels.
  • Keep in mind that in general room sizes in Historical Rome are smaller than what you are probably accustomed to.
  • The time of year and position of your hotel can greatly effect your holiday.

Have a great stay in Rome,
