Convenient hotel for Termini and Forum areas of city

Comfy room overlooking the street, which was noisy but fine through closed windows and the air con was not a disturbance. Street noise did not disturb us at night. Bathroom was a little tired and gloomy though. Excellent continental style breakfast with veg, cheeses and salad. Plenty of bread and pastries to set us up for the day. Reception staff all have very good English and were very helpful with a welcome pack, tourist info and a local restaurant guide, from which we found 'Target' - see our tip below.

Rex hotel

This hotel is very good for its location, within walking distance of the Railway/Bus/Metro terminus (5 minutes) Staff are very friendly and helpful. However what does let the hotel down somewhat is the room we stayed in at least really does need a refurb it was tired /dark red walls dark carpets, there were no bedside lamps, Some sharp corners to the bed which when going to the bathroom in the night can be very bruising!! curtains were far too long a real trip hazard, our room was overlooked by an office block so blinds on the window are a must as you have no privacy otherwise. Bathroom needs a makeover, rusty shower cubicle tarnished taps, a phone on the wall so close to the loo that you would knock off the receiver. Continental breakfast was very poor a few rolls, an omlette like eggy whatever with bits of whatever left from last nights dinner added very disappointing, I have had many continental breakfasts over the years and this was poor. Great location friendly staff but in need of a serious makeover. Would I recommend no

Perfectly Located Hotel

The best thing about this hotel was the location.So central and within walking distance to most of the important landmarks.The others can be easily reached by the metro.The next best thing was the great breakfast which can be eaten on the roof top terrace so if you are a smoker like me you can have a ciggie with your morning coffee! The staff were wonderful.....so friendly and helpful,printing out maps for anywhere that you wanted to go and making phone calls for you when in a crisis (I had my purse stolen in Naples metro station......avoid Naples if you can).I would definitely recommend this hotel and already have relatives going to use it in the future.Local eateries are very reasonably priced.....the local chinese restaurant......2 courses and wine and beer for 35 euros.What a bargain! All in all a lovely experience.

Superb holiday

We highly recommend this hotel to potential clients. It is perfectly situated close to the bus/train station (10 minutes walk), yet is within walking distance of all the major sites. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful; the room was very pleasant and the inclusive breakfast provided sufficient choice to meet everyone's needs.

New Year's in Rome

Booking last minute, we were glad to find a hotel in the centre of Rome, most attraction are walkable, or a few bus stops away. Both trains and coaches takes you to Termini which is a 10 minute walk. The stuff was friendly and helpful without exception. I especially liked the spacious bed, it was quiet, the curtains blocked out the light (I slept well). If you turn on the radio in the room, there's music in the bathroom as well. Despite the huge window, we didn't get any noise from the street (or the corridors). Best to take your own tea and coffee sachets, as their selection is 3 euros, but there's a kettle in the room - a bonus in a European hotel. We never had a problem with the hot water supply, morning or evening. We enjoyed breakfast, the best parts being the capuccinos, omelettes, fresh pastries and parma type ham. The latter two ran out as more guests made it to breakfast, so better to be early. There's plenty of other food though. The TV room downstairs has got good ambiance and one can rent DVD's for free and watch them in the room. Over all, I was very pleased with everything. We're a couple who wanted to see everything we could in Rome and the hotel was a great base.

Stadthotel nah am Termini !

Das Hotel Rex eignet sich sehr gut für Reisende die Tagsüber unterwegs sind. Grosses Breites Doppelbett aber die Zimmer sind etwas dunkel. Ruhige Zimmer, Bad ok, Sehr freundliche Reception mit sehr guten Tipps und Auskünfte.

Mahtava perheloma

Olimme perheen (2 9-13v poikaa ja vanhemmat) kanssa Roomassa huhtikuun alussa 5 päivää. Ilmat juuri sopivat: aurinkoa ja lämpöä 18-27 astetta. Hotelli oli sopivalla etäisyydellä Terminin asemasta ja toisaalta myös historiallisen keskustan nähtävyyksistä, kaikki kävelymatkan päässä. Katu oli rauhallinen. Henkilökunta ystävällistä ja osaavaa. Perhehuoneessa erilliset vuoteet kahdelle lapselle/nuorelle ja parivuode, tilaa riittävästi. Hotelli siisti, huoneen kokolattiamatto ehkä hieman pölyinen. Kylpyhuoneen amme lasten suosiossa.
