    « Nice & Clean »

    The hotel was terrific. They helped us arrange a driver from the airport (55 Euros) and helped us with questions about our travel plans. Rooms are small but very clean and nice. Included breakfast was great.

    « So, So »

    I was there in Oct, peak fall, I booked the hotel and it said Air Conditioning, but failed to say , but a/c shuts off in the fall. The staff was friendly, I need to print train tickets, they said "we dont have concierge here, you have to do it yourself", the front desk agent, actually went to the business center with me and showed me how to get online, as it was all in Italian, and even help my tickets, until his shift was done. The only concern I had, was the next morning, my cab was late, and i missed my train, but the host at the desk called continuously, and I made it to my train but 35 minutes later than anticipated.

    « Outstanding »

    After a 3 week trip through Europe the Blu Hotel Roma was a really pleasant surprise. The internet was great and the breakfast was probably the best we had during all of our trip (the egg was cooked perfeclty, unlike most hotels in Europe). The staff is super helpful and friendly. For example, one day we arrived 5 minutes before breakfast closed but Catalina still was super nice and helpful. Front desk was a bit serious everytime but always helped on what we asked. The only problem was that the temperature from our shower had random variations but this doesn't undermine how good this hotel was. Location wise, it's a 10 minute walk to the Tirbutina station which takes you straight to the city center, plus there's a small shopping center close to the hotel and the area feels safe. Overall great hotel, thank you for everything.

    « close to Tiburtina Station »

    We stayed here only one night, our first in Rome, so that we'd be near the Tiburtina Station as we needed to leave from that point early the next day. While it was a long taxi ride from the airport, it was near to the train/bus stations. Our rooms were small and basic. The linens and towels were nice. It only cost E3/person to have the buffet breakfast there which was a good deal. We found the front desk staff very helpful when an unforeseen snag came up for a reservation with another Best Western hotel in Rome later in our visit to Italy. We were impressed with the professionalism in which the situation has handled for us. Only disappointment was there was no CNN or BBC stations available on the TV even though the hotel manual in the room said those channels were available. I called the front desk to check out that and a gentleman was sent up to check out our TV. However, those channels weren't connected when we were staying at the hotel.

    « Definitely not 4 star but clean and close to transportation »

    This hotel is definitely not a 4 star hotel as rated. It's a budget hotel, clean and neat. The featured photos of the rooms are very misleading. The room is basic with a small bedroom and nice sized bathroom. The "business center" is a desk with a computer and printer. The chef into he restaurant is also the waiter and the front desk person is also the bartender for the small bar. The breakfast area is large and the breakfast for 1 euro per person per day is very adequate. The hotel is close to the bus stop which will take you to a major train station and Metro station. The station is also in walking distance. This hotel is a good base if you are not planning to be in the room a lot. There is no pool at this hotel. The hotel staff is friendly and very accommodating.

    « Basic but comfortable »

    This hotel is very basic but luckily you don't spend too much time in it, just sleep and eat breakfast which was tasty enough. I don't rate the restaurant though for an evening meal, best to eat out. The metro is about 15-20 minutes walk but that may have taken slightly longer due to the heat. Supermarket ideally located and a restaurant and bar at the top of the road excellent. The two ladies helping out at breakfast are the very best, helpful, friendly and nothing too much trouble. I would like to thank the guy who checked us in, due to travel agent errors he was very accommodating to our needs.

    « Very Basic »

    Stayed as part of a pre-cruise. package.Small, basic room (smaller than a cruise-ship cabin )with small uncomfortable double-bed (just tolerable for a couple for 2 nights).Noise outside throughout night from air-conditioning fans (?)-ships engines much quieter!.

    « Shawn and Lisa 's trip »

    Absolutely loved this hotel and the staff. Lorenzo and Nicolai were great and made us feel so welcome, helping out where ever the could. The metro is approximately a 10 minute walk and colossuem is 6 stops away which takes no time at all. There is a shop across the road and also shopping centre which is a 5 minute walk and has some great shops too. Lorenzo made the best cocktails for me and the restaurant food was delicious, Shawn had two mains in one night! They made our holiday more enjoyable! We will definitely want to come back!

    « Bravo Blu Hotel Roma »

    Was in Rome to take in the sights of the city. Our stay at the Blu Hotel Roma was great!. Very clean hotel with a very accomodating and gracious staff. We especially appreciated their willingness to hold onto our four pieces of luggage twice. They even held it for us after we checked out to allow us to take an all day tour before we headed to the airport. Heartily recommend them for both leisure and business travel.

    « NO air conditioning »

    No matter what they told you the air conditioning is central so they DON'T turn it on because the whole hotel either would be cold or hot and they also don't want to spend more money on that. Even though we talk to someone in the front desk named Daniel and ask them about it and they told us, of course we have, they don't. Long ride to the touristic zone in Rome, 30 mins minimum, you have to take the bus and then metro. The only good thing about the hotel it's the "good price" and the pizzas one block away. We've stayed on others best western and these were the worst.

    « Really nice hotel location was inconvenient for backpacking »

    The hotel was nice, it was a small room and the wifi was down constantly and slow when it was working. The breakfast was nice and actually worthwhile. The location was sketchy for those who plan on walking a lot. Extremely sketchy walk with narrow sidewalks. Staff was nice and good Kabob nearby.

    « Nice Hotel, very friendly staff »

    When we arrived after a 9 hour flight from Canada, we were tired and just wanted to crash in our room. The room was nice enough, nothing special. It had the king size bed that we asked for but it was too hot, the air conditioning had been turned off. We went down to the front desk and by that time the manager had left and the person on the desk said there was nothing he could do. The next day they turned it back on for us so it was all good. The hotel has an outdoor picnicking area and there is a grocery store across the street. So one day we picked up some bread, meat, cheese, olives, and wine and had ourselves a very nice and inexpensive lunch. The hotel bar opened the wine for us and let us borrow a couple of glasses. This is not a 5 star hotel by any means but it suited us and had a very nice free breakfast every morning with cappuccinos, so everything worked out well.

    « Best Wester Blu Roma - A Pleasant Hotel »

    After a stressful journey, the warm welcome from staff at Best Western Blu was really nice. They greeted us warmly on arrival, and we were checked in quickly and easily. I booked two rooms, one for myself and one for my mum who was travelling with me. They very thoughtfully put these two rooms next to each other, which was impressive and made life easier. The rooms were pleasant and tidy and had everything we needed. There was also a fridge in the room which contained bottled water, but you were able to put other drinks in it, which was very useful. The room was also air conditioned and had a balcony. The bed was a little hard for my liking, but this is purely down to my personal preference. The room was spotlessly cleaned every day. Free WiFi was provided, this was high speed and reliable, and was extremely useful during our stay - a great touch. Something you need to be aware of is that the Blu is some distance from the city. It would be over an hour's walk to get to any of the attractions, or alternatively you can take the Metro (underground). Tiburtina station is a ten-minute walk from the hotel, and goes directly to many of the attractions including the Colosseum and Vatican City. You can get a 24 hour ticket for 7 Euros (you can buy these from tobacco shops or other local places) which allows you to travel pretty much wherever you like, and it was very quick and simple. A five minute walk in the other direction brings you to a nice little shopping centre and supermarket for any essentials. Other than that there isn't much locally for the tourist. The hotel staff are a font of useful information, armed with tourist maps and local knowledge to help make your stay that bit better. They couldn't be more helpful if they tried. The breakfast service is pleasant, running from 7-10am, which gives you the opportunity to be out early, or have a lie-in. It's far more flexible than I've known in other hotels. I would highly recommend Blu Hotel to anyone... as long as you're happy not to be in the middle of the city.

    « Nothing special »

    The room is basic and clean. Had the AC on full & the room never cooled off. Breakfast buffet is like a feeding frenzy. Staff is not prepared for the 7 am rush. Most hotels will open breakfast room early so guests can get coffee. Not this one. We tried getting a coffee @ 6:55 & were told to get out. Hotels in Italy should catch up with the rest of the western world and provide coffee in the guest rooms.

    « Great stay »

    We stayed at the Best Western for two nights. The room was very clean and comfortable. The air conditioning was great and the breakfast delicious. Both nights we sat outside for awhile, where there are outdoor tables and chairs. The reception staff, breakfast staff and bar staff were all friendly and helpful. The wifi was good. Close walk to Tiburtino stations.

    « Hotel Blu Roma visit. »

    This was the 3rd time I have been to the Hotel Blu Roma. I remember the same wonderful folks from my previous stays. The service as always was fantastic. The staff is friendly and courteous and above all, very helpful. The room was perfect for my needs. The location is just where I need it, close to the cemetery where my parents are buried with easy access to the public transportation system. I most certainly plan to stay there again on my next visit.

    « Best Western Hotel Blu Roma »

    If considering visiting Rome (especially in the summer) don't stay here. Unless you like using public transport it's not in a good location for Rome sight seeing. Rooms were passable, but the AC wasn't good enough for the high temps and the power went off 3 or 4 times during our 6 night stay. Then, on check-out the kicker - 144 Euro City tax on top of what I had already paid (6 Euro PPPN - I had 3 kids with me). All in all I would not recommend this Hotel.
