    « Excellent, chose the cheapest room and enjoyed an excellent stay »

    Room was well looked after, breakfast was as good as any recently in Italy, France and Spain. Reception were always cheerful and willing to help. We spent every day out and basically used it as a bed and breakfast, so cannot comment on meals etc.

    « Great location near Sapienza Univ. »

    Good buffet breakfast and just 3 blocks from a Metro station for quick access to most of Rome's major attractions. A few good restaurants nearby & lots of student eateries as well. Staff is very helpful when asked for information. There was a metro strike so I ended up having to walk back to hotel from St Peters which was about 4 miles, a very interesting afternoon!

    « Fantastic neighbourhood.... »

    We enjoyed staying at this comfy hotel during our first few nights in Rome. Room (triple ) was a bit small but well equipped n clean. I was surprised by the wide variety of food at the breakfast buffet... being a 3* hotel. Loved the restaurant area...very modern n pretty. Courteous and obliging staff....full of smiles:) Great hotel to stay , especially for families with children. Many cozy restaurants around the area. Safe neighbourhood. Many thanks.....

    « Very nice on the inside »

    Don't be fooled by the exterior. Very nice hotel, large clean rooms. Great breakfast. Great staff. Would definitely stay here again. Quiet, secure. The buildings exterior is a bit deceiving but all is great through the front doors. Close to Termini Station(short 15-20 min walk)

    « There are better but it will do »

    We were stuck for a place to stay and this place was available. It isn't in the best area or most convenient for sight seeing. It is close to the university and a few restaurants and pizza shops. It is 20min walk to termini station which has a grocery store, restaurants, shopping and a post office. It is about 90min walk to Vatican City and about 45min to the colosseum. The area wasn't the best but we felt fairly comfortable walking even at night. They have extra beds available for a fee which is pretty expensive. They have a bathroom to change in and luggage storage if you are early and your room isn't ready. They have a decent breakfast included but small area. We did have to wait for seating a couple times. You also won't eat there most days as the tours for site seeing start so early. The rooms were clean and well stocked every day. There is ac and a fridge in the room and we had a balcony. There is a computer and printer there for you to use. The staff was great and spoke very good English. Overall it was a pleasant stay but I might try to find something closer to the center of the site seeing next time.

    « Enjoyed our stay »

    Reception staff was very friendly, enjoyed our stay and would recommend it too. Only thing I would highlight is that there was no air-con working in the room as the hotel operates central heating and cooling system which was off at this time of the year so for the guest who are not comfortable sleeping at night in 25 degree Celsius the only option is to open window which brings in plenty of fresh air but mosquitos as well!!! :) and traffic noise... but else enjoyed service from staff members :)

    « Pleasant business trip »

    Location - The hotel is close to roma termini which is perfect for getting to and from the airport. The taxi to/from the termini is about 10€ (taxis without a meter will rip you off and charge 20€!). It was a 5 minute walk to the institute where I was visiting for training. A taxi to the trevi fountain only cost me 12€, 15€ to the pantheon . There are buses available for a cheaper alternative. There is an ATM just down the road from the hotel along with a number of fast food services. There is a lovely restaurant about a 5 minute walk away, recommended by hotel staff, food was nice and reasonably priced. Free breakfast & Wifi - The wifi was good and I could connect to it in all areas of the hotel. There was a variety of choice for breakfast - yoghurts, toast, pastries, cereal, fruit. Staff - Helpful, friendly and spoke good English. Room - The room was nice, clean and spacious with two double beds and a luxurious shower. There was a fridge which provided cold still and sparkling water. However the air con wasn't great, I'd imagine in the summer months these rooms would become quite stuffy. Also, I found the pillows were uncomfortable, too solid for me. This would be my only criticism, otherwise I would highly recommend this hotel and I would most definitely return and stay again.

    « Really nice Hotel, Just a little out of the way !! »

    Booked this Hotel a few weeks before going, Hotel was exactly what we wanted - 2 adults and 2 teenagers in the same room. Breakfast - Plenty of variety for all tastes if you are an early bird or like a lie-in. Staff were always friendly and willing to help. The Hotel itself was very clean just slightly let down by being a little out of the way, Saying that you are close to the B-line (Metro) which is cheap and easy to use. The surrounding area has plenty of café and food bars close by, Not the best street lights but felt totally safe even late at night. Would I stay here again ? Yes, definitely.

    « Budget Holidayers come here! »

    Good value for money! Average location! 10 minute walk from Rome Termini. Bathroom smells bad constantly though! Friendly staff, area looks rough round the edges but is safe! Probably wouldn't come back just due to location!

    « Great Breakfasts »

    I wanted a 'safe' hotel for a 4 day break as I know that many smaller Rome hotels can be a bit Mickey Mouse. This was a bit out of the centre but easy to get to on the Metro and walkable at a push from Termini. The staff were very friendly and the rooms quiet and breakfast was excellent. Only criticism was that there was no hotel restaurant in the evening.

    « Pleasant stay »

    We really enjoyed our stay. Exellant staff clean rooms. Nice breakfast with lots of verity and smiley staff. Great location. Direct links to many attractions.they even upgraded our room free of charge. Free tea coffee in reception and rooms. I will recommend this hotel which made our stay in Rome very special

    « Good hotel away from the hussle »

    I stayed one night on a business trip. Great for the university. Room was spotless, staff very helpful and polite. Good buffet breakfast. If you arrive in Rome via the main train station (Termini) a taxi to the hotel shouldn't cost more than 10 euros. Beware of a taxi scam that will charge you 25 (without turning the meter on)! Hotel easy to get to via local bus and metro.

    « Hotel is exactly as written in reviews »

    I must say, that this is one hotel that has matched its reviews in terms of location, comfort and hospitality of staff. The hotel is located 5-7 min from MRT, opp. bus stop and 15 min from rome terminal station. The hotel provides good breakfast full of fruits, cereals and breads for vegetarians, complimentary tea/ coffee, water and dove soap/ shampoo in bathroom. AC is fine and so is bed. It has small balcony where you can site in morning or evening and sip coffee/ tea on pleasant day. The front desk staff is extremely helpful to help you with tourism and luggage. When the staff came to know that coffee creamer did not go well with tea, they gave me real milk which made my tea exactly as my home. Will definitely stay here again if i visit Rome. Not all rooms have standing bath area (only bath tub, difficult to climb); and entrance has 8-10 steps you have to carry luggage up.

    « Fine hotel to stay in Rome. »

    Recently stayed here for 3 nights, location is good, 15 min walk to Termini. Hotel clean and breakfast good. We booked a double room and emailed the hotel before departure to ask if we could possibly request a room with a view as it was a special occasion. Slightly dissapointed with our first impression. Arrived late in the evening due to flight schedule. Receptionist (Middle aged gentleman was lacking customer service skills) no chat, seemed very dis-interested, gave us keys to our room on 6th floor. It was a single room! Phoned reception to explain his error and another member of staff quickly apologised and we finally got our double room. For the money we paid it was good just a pity about our welcome on arrival!

    Pros: 1. Nice and quick working staff 2. great breakfast 3. spacious and clean room with a well separated bathroom 4. very comfy bed Cons: 1. a bit far off the main attractions of the city 2. shower cabin was really badly constucted 3. hot water flow was not sustained, actually the shower was unintentionally alternating between cold and hot 4. no private parking

    « Excellent stay, beautiful hotel »

    Its a beautiful property. Located walking distance away from Policlinico Metro station. Our family stayed there for three nights. The front desk was efficient and courteous. Service was top class. The breakfast spread was very good and the service at the restaurant was friendly and helpful. The room was clean and spacious. We had read a lot of reviews about small hotel rooms in Rome and we were delighted when we saw a brightly lit spacious room to accommodate the three of us ready for us at our arrival. The hotel is away from the hubbub around Termini, but thats so relaxing. Just walk upto the Metro and you could start your tourist trail. Termini is 10 minutes ride away in a taxi, and two stations away on the Metro. The airline had lost our luggage when we arrived at Rome, and the hotel staff were courteous enough to coordinate with them for us and receive the luggage the next day when it arrived, while we were busy exploring the city. Highly recommended.

    « Friendly, clean hotel »

    When looking for a hotel in Rome there is a lot to choose from and what helped us most was reading others reviews. When picking the Best Western Globus Hotel we wanted somewhere that wasn't miles away from the central travel lines but equally we wanted somewhere that was affordable. Best Western ticked both these boxes as it was a 20 minute walk to the main train station Termini or alternatively a 8 minute walk to Policlinico Metro station (2 stops away from Termini on the blue line). When first finding the hotel we used the WiFi on the bus (airport shuttle bus, Ryanair sell tickets for this on board the flight) to set up our walking route on our phone which was really handy! We opted for breakfast with our stay because it seemed convenient, as it was. Breakfast is served daily 7am - 10am. On our last day we asked if we could go down to breakfast earlier because of our flight time and they were fine with this and saved us getting breakfast at the airport. The breakfast itself is pretty much the same everyday but offers a wide variety to suit all. With egg and sausage, toast, cereal, cakes, fruit, continental (hams and cheeses), fruit juices and a hot drinks machine. Our room (number 420) was on floor 4 with easy access in the lift. Our room was all it needed to be. It was clean and comfortable. What we liked was there was no extra charge for the use of the save during your time at the hotel, and that you could set a numbered password of your choosing. We had a fridge with free water (fizzy), our telly had a little clock on it that was useful during in the night and the room had black out curtains. We had a little balcony but didn't use it, just went out the once. Our room was a little on the cosy side with the bathroom feeling very small. The toilet was directly behind the door so if the door is opened whilst on the loo it banged your knees. The shower was also a little on the small size but this wasn't much of a problem. The bathroom was supplied with hand soap, body wash and shampoo and fresh towels daily. A couple of negatives about our room, one being the air-con was very loud so we opted not to use it, or have it on for a while and turn it off to go to sleep (it was not really needed throughout the night for the time of year we stayed). Another thing to mention was that we could hear a constant tapping/clunking like a pipe. The staff were always very friendly, welcoming and accommodating throughout our stay and all spoke good English. In the lobby there was access to a computer with a printer that we used once (no charge for printing). There is also access to cold water, cookies and a helpful map of the city and where attractions are. For our 5 night stay there was a 40 euro city tax fee. I believe you would have to pay city tax wherever you stay so just bear this in mind as they charge this when you check out. Overall we enjoyed our stay at the hotel as it was everything we needed as a base from travelling all day. We would recommend to friends and family.

    « A great hotel »

    A lovely hotel, bus stop outside no 310 takes to the main termmi in 10 minutes for all forms of transport all over Rome. Only down side the flight of stairs you see in the photo you have to climb hard work if disabled. the staff was wonderful apart from one who was so rude

    « Well located, cousy hotel »

    Close to the Policinico metro and just twa stations away from termini, the main train station in Rome, this hotel have a friendly service and a recently renewed rooms, making it a good option in Rome. Close to the university , there are many goos restaurants and places to eat around at very reasonable prices. be careful when booking in august : due to the summer vacations, many restaurantes and stores around are close.

    « Comfortable but dull, and neglected »

    The room was comfy although very basic. It had air conditioning, and was clean. The wifi was reliable and the room was not noisy. The staff were nice to me! However; - The towel rail and shelf in the bathroom were breaking away from the wall - The toilet is crammed in the corner so you have to sit at an angle - The bar was closed meaning no food at all in the evenings, nowhere to chill out - I was told there was no way for me to get anything to drink AT ALL except a vending machine downstairs, but it only took coins (of which I had none) and so I was out of luck. In the end I was directed to a discount supermarket a 10 minute walk away, and bought a bottle of horrible fizzy drink for 35c. - I asked for recommendations on where to eat, specifying "somewhere good, with a nice view, I'm happy to get a taxi" and all they could suggest was a poor looking restaurant down the road (with no view). No suggestions in the whole of Rome, really? - At breakfast they had no decent coffee (only cold black coffee in a jug because the machines were not working), and... unbelievably, I can't quite believe I wasn't dreaming - no juices to drink at all (no apple, orange, etc). Just water from a shared jug that tasted bad. Again, the staff were very apologetic but go to the store and buy some guys, come on! Send someone out! It's not hard! - The buffet selection was OK. - The location is a 20 EUR taxi trip to Piazza Navona, if you want to calibrate distance. I actually found it was convenient for catching Ubers, and there is a metro stop a shortish walk away, although I didn't use it. Truthfully I enjoyed my trip, and having somewhere comfy (the bed) and cool to sleep was great. And if I need to be in that specific part of Rome again I would consider staying here as it's a known quantity and while not particularly effective the staff were very friendly. But this hotel could be so much better if they just took a step back and looked at the customers perspective, it's not good enough even for budget places.

    « Everytime I visit Rome, I stay there »

    Away from typical tourist route, located 5 minutes walk from the Policlinico Metro station, close to the bus stops and trams, so coming back or going to the old Rome is not a problem, it's rather advanetage, you're away from noise. Close to the Termini Station Fantatstic breakfast!

    « Comfortable stay, helpful staff »

    The room was very clean and comfortable, also spacious for three. Staff was always helpful and cheerful, offered detailed directions and explanations. The location is very close to Termini Metro station which is quite central. The hotel itself is not within a walking distance to the main attractions, but it is within walking distance to a Metro station which would take you everywhere. Breakfast was very good.

    « Boring »

    I'll start with the good: it was clean. Worked really well for our family of 5. The breakfast was not bad at all. The not so good: never in my life did I check in such a boring place. The room was beyond plain... nothing much except beds and a dresser. Yes there was a tv but.. who cares. I cannot understand Italian anyway. There was no shampoos or conditioner or anything. There was a bottle of squeezable soap, one to wash your hands, one to take a shower with, and one to wash your.... bottom with. The bathroom door was less than a centimeter away from the sink. Talk about cutting close. The Ok... the location was also boring. Away from any real dinning/entertainment area. It was close enough (about a good 10 minutes walking) to a Metro. In the morning is not a big deal of a walk but coming back from walking all day..... ouch.

    « A good family hotel »

    Ideally located close to a tram line and Policlinico Metro. Only 2 stops away from Roma Termini. Pavements are not user friensly if you have a lot of luggage. Staff were friendly. There is a computer and printer for guest use and it is libero. The bed rooms were comfortable for a family. It also has a balcony. However,the floor tiles were loose and could do with some maintenance. Similarly the bathroom could do with some maintenance. The hotel staff would not take my best western card since it was not a direct booking. Slightly annoying. I booked the hotel through trip advisor and Agoda. I was surprised when I was asked to pay 96 Euros for tourist tax in Rome on Check out (4 Euros per person per night). This was not made clear at all on the booking confirmation and I have comllained to Agoda.

    « Perfect for family of 4; wish it were a bit more central »

    This hotel is a bargain and met all requirements I needed for our family of 4 (2 kids, 9 and 13). Room has a good size for 4 people with 2 queen size beds and decent walking space. The AC worked flawless, a requirement for Rome in peak summer. Has a fridge with free water bottles (although they won't refill until you ask). Decent desk space. Safe in the room. Acceptable closet space (could use more drawers). Comfortable beds. It even had a balcony (did not use). The sleep was really great. The bathroom is on the small size but it's functional. I wished the shower box were slightly bigger, but it was a no issue for all of us. Also, sink space is limited, but not too hard to work around. Don't recall toiletries, only liquid soap for head/body, but also no issue. A very good full buffet breakfast included in the rate, with hot items (eggs and sausage/bacon), although in Italy I usually stuck with the regular bread, butter, cheese and charcuterie. Breakfast room opens at 7am (summer) but if you need to leave earlier, you tell the front desk the night before to save a to-go box, and set the time you want to pick it up. No drinks in the box, only some packed toast, jam, nutela, a croissant and an apple, but that you should get you going. Water and coffee on the lobby. Elevator on the premises. 24h front desk (a requirement for us, who needed to take an early flight). All staff was very polite and helpful. They helped us get a cab to the airport - actually, they offered one at check in and we promptly accepted. The rate was about right for what I've heard elsewhere. The hotel is clean, although there was something on our floor that felt sticky. Maybe they should be upgrading the flooring - I peaked at the floor of another room it looked newer. Wifi on each floor, one of the most functional we got in our Europe trip. Now some remarks on location. There is nothing much on the area - it has a hospital complex and an university, and are particularly quiet during the summer. Did not feel unsafe, but it is far from being vibrant. The closest metro station, Policlinico is about a half mile from the hotel. It will get you straight to the Colosseum metro station. For other places in Rome, you probably need to change the metro at Termini. Or go to Termini and take a bus. Or take a bus in front of the hotel that takes you to Termini (but add 20 to 30 minutes to your commute). You can go almost everywhere from Termini (e.g., for most places in the historic center, you can take a bus and get off around Piazza Venezia). Line 40 seems to be the most convenient and frequent. There is also a tram passing nearby but will take you to some less centrally located sites (it does take you to the colosseum and surroundings). The ride can be long, though. Cab rides can be of some help. A ride from Trastevere to our hotel costs 13 euros in the evening. Same cost from Termini (because of luggage surcharge). In general, we found that we took about 40 minutes to 1 hour to most places we wanted to visit (e.g., 50 minutes to the Vatican, door to door). In summary, we loved the hotel, especially given the rates, for what it has to offer, but we thought we spent quite a bit of time commuting, especially considering we always return to the hotel in the afternoon before leaving for the evening dinner. It is not too bad, but it can be a bit inconvenient at times.

    « Delicious cake »

    Really friendly and helpful staff. Our initial room was tiny and had a distinct unpleasant odour to it but for an additional fee we were upgraded to a great room with large corner balcony. Pity that the balcony light did not work, despite requests to have it fixed. The location was brilliant for public transport with a metro and tram stop (which took you took the metro) were both within walking distance. The highlight for me was the delicious cake available at breakfast time. I would definitely stay here again.

    « Poor reception service & shabby old rooms »

    Received a poor service when we arrived - both of the 2 receptionists were less than helpful & the check in process was excessively long. When we asked for a recommendation for a local restaurant we were given only one option with poor directions. The breakfast area downstairs is very modern & the breakfast was good but the room we had was poor (see photos). The shower gel bottle was empty. Our room was on the street & this was noisy at night. Rooms need some serious updating & the receptionists need some customer service training!! Glad we were only there for one night.

    « It is the best!! »

    It was the BEST out of every hotel I stayed in Italy! The service was great. They even had out breakfast ready when I couldnt make it for the complemntary breakfast. The room was always clean and the facility was so comfortable. It had a refrigerator and a balcony. The only thing I didnt like was that there werent a lot of restaurants nearby. But thats not the hotels faults. The breakfast was amazing. So many to choose from:) loved it and thank you for offering great stay!

    A good location, close to Roma Termini. Very helpful and polite staff at the front desk. Room we got to begin with had issue of BAD FOUL SMELL from Toilet / Drainage. But the front desk was nice enough to move us to another room. The breakfast area ambiance is great. Good hotel. Staff is very helpful and could get us taxi really quick and guide us thru for the place to visit. There was a Metro strike on blue line that staff warned us ahead of time !!!

    « Less than expected »

    We had a "preferred" room. While it was clean and the a/c worked - The towels smelled STRONGLY of vinegar - so much so that I could smell it in my hair all day, and the shampoo was a shampoo/conditioner/bodywash mix in a squeeze bottle attached to the wall. The location was quite inconvenient if you are planning to go anywhere other than the university. Very few restaurants in the neighborhood - mostly bars serving students. However - the breakfast bar was quite good.

    « Utterly ill maintained property »

    The whole place was overall unclean. The room was shockingly dusty and all of us started sneezing due to the dust & tiny particles in the room. Hope the management pays some attention to have a better housekeeping staff..

    « Excellent stay and gluten-free friendly! »

    We were here for 3 nights. Staff is incredibly friendly. We found the hotel to be convent for us though most places in the neighborhood shut down by 9:00pm which is good as it's quieter. Room was clean and I just can't say how great the staff is. As for the restaurant... Our daughter has celiac and must eat gluten free. The restaurant was very accommodating with this, always having breads and a selection for her.

    « It is ok »

    The positives Friendly and helpful staff The room on the 5 th floor was outstanding - spotless and clean and furnished to a very high standard. The bed and pillows were extremely comfortable. The location for me on a business trip was good with easy access to ground transport when required. Breakfast was varied and of a high standard to suite all tastes The less good The wifi was extremely poor and not reliable even with multiple hotspots to choose from The hotel was chosen as it had restaurant, room service and a bar - on business this is sort of essential when working late and on calls into the night. It does have a restaurant but it's not open at night. It has a bar which is not open at night and it has room service but not for food. The website is not inaccurate - it's just not fully described. The area is busy and as in virtually all of Rome you will hear the life of the city - and this is cool. Rome is vibrant passionate and noisy. The hotel location whilst ok and reasonably connected does not have a range of eating establishments nearby and those that are are geared for snack and go trade and I did indeed discover a rather nice cakes and snack place just opposite. So for quality of room and the staff it gets a big yes. For the availability of usable hotel services when on business it leaves a big gap which the management could easily address with upgraded wifi and evening services. Would I stay on business again - most likely not - there are somethings that just need to be there to make this complete for the business traveller. Would I use as a base to sleep when in Rome as a tourist. Most likely - but there are other hotels more centrally located in the same price range which have a full evening service so it would be on the list to consider if those hotels are fully booked.

    « Nice hotel and staff »

    Really very nice hotel. Clean and very good cleaning service. Nice breakfast and coffe and cappuciono served at coffe machine. Helpful staff always willing to explain things. Well english spoken by staff. Near to Termini station or for better convenience the metro station at Policlinic (5 minutes walk from the hotel) was a great conection to Termini or Coloseum station. Definitevely I will come back at this hotel again

    « Great pre-flight hotel »

    Nice facility, dinner was good, shuttle to airport was convenient. I would recommend to someone who wanted to be near airport before flight. The food at the restaurant was good. Depending on when you are there, if you eat outside, it can be very noisy as the planes fly overhead very close to the ground and are very loud. Don't know how much noise would be inside, but it was a beautiful night so we chose to sit outside. Room was comfortable, bed was great, planes were not flying after we went to sleep so that was nice.

    « Cooperative and Friendly staff »

    This was our last hotel during our trip to Italy . We were a group of 10 people including 3 kids . We were here between 29 th May 2016 to 2 nd June 2016 . We had booked 2 triple rooms n 1 quadruple room . However 1 of the triple room was very tiny .. When we requested for a bigger room they immediately shifted us to a room as big as quadruple room . The rooms n bathrooms were very clean and equipped with Modern amenities .. The breakfast was good . The front desk staff was very friendly n cooperative . Hotel location was also safe n good . All in all we had a great stay in this hotel at the end of our tour .

    « It is what it is. With some caveats. »

    This hotel is far from the center. The rooms barely resemble their pictures, so don't get your hopes up. There is uncomfortable functional furniture in the rooms, and the hardest ('firmest') bed I've slept on since the last time I went camping. It was livable. The hotel has a restaurant that does a nice breakfast. It doesn't do dinner, or snacks (still listed on their website) nor doe sit ever open the bar. Go figure. The front desk staff is very helpful but very poorly trained. The website has label for rooms ('Working', 'Liberty', etc). I asked at the front deck which one I had and was told 'double'. I said but what type of room 'double' I heard back. OK. The maps at the front desk are scoped so the hotel isn't on them. Go figure. The wifi was severely limited, more than 10 people on brought it to a screaming halt. Manage your expectations.

    « Value for money but a bit far from the centre »

    This hotel overall is good value for money., The standard room we had on the 6th floor was very small to the point that I had to walk sideways to get into my side of the bed. The bathroom could have done with a better clean on a daily basis but overall the room was fine and I have to say the bed was superb and we slept extremely well. I would suggest that you upgrade to a superior room. The breakfast variety and quality was excellent, especially the scrambled eggs. The staff in this hotel are very friendly and helpful. The hotel is quite a walk to the nearest metro station and after a day of walking around Rome you get a bit fed up with the trudge back to the hotel from the train. Also at night we found ourselves getting taxis back and forward to the centre at a cost of approx 13-15 euros each journey.There were 4 of us in our party so this cost was acceptable but if your a couple on your own this could work out as quite an expensive necessity. I would definately book a hotel closer to the centre of Rome next time, but all in all this hotel is great value.

    « Great value for money ! »

    A late review, but none the less... We had a lovely stay at this hotel.. It is in a student area, so you have small eateries which are open till late at night. The staff is very helpful, and provided us with a map and detailed instructions when we checked in. We had a decent sized room, with a huge balcony. The rooms were clean and modern. The breakfast spread had a nice variety. It is close to the metro station (Policlinico), which would be a 10 minutes walk. There is a tram station nearby too. The best part of the hotel was the staff, who were super helpful,polite and always smiling, no matter how many times we asked for help.

    « Great hotel for a sightseeing trip »

    I enjoyed my stay at this hotel and they have a good breakfast to start your day. The staff where very helpful and couldent help me enough with information regarding how to travel about and also where was good to eat. I enjoyed my stay with this hotel and would stay again.

    « Nice hotel, gluten free breakfast! »

    The hotel itself is nice and modern, the staff are very helpful when you need directions and can order you a taxi when needed. The breakfast staff were particularly great. I asked for the gluten free option that they provided, and got a little basket of gluten free treats every morning. This was a great start to the day and the breakfast staff were always so happy and friendly. The only thing I would say about this hotel is that its not really in a great spot to get into town. You are in the student area so there are a lot of stationary shops and bookshops.

    « My stay at Best Western »

    From my point of view, the hotel was well furnished and neat. The hotel staff were very hospitable. The only drawback was that the hotel room was small for a family of four. But, it would have been okay for European standards. The metro station was at a 10 minutes walking distance.There was a good spread of breakfast but there was not much selection for vegetarian peoples. It was a modern hotel.

    « Great deal, walking distance to train station, local subways, local buses »

    Stay includes free breakfast, very helpful staff, free wifi, its a college town so very safe even late at night. subway is 10mts, local buses are just down the street, appox. 1.5 km if you want to walk to the train station 'Termini'

    « 2nd stay »

    Better than average. For first timer to Rome, this is not the most convenient location. We use taxis most of the time, though not expensive. Good breakfast, and I had a balcony. Staff very helpful and made dinner reservation and called taxis for us. This time I did not go outside of Rome and we did not walked 15 minutes to rail terminal.

    « Small rooms, too noisy, good breakfast »

    Spent 1 night there. we booked 8 rooms, some were too small you couldn't get 2 suitcases in the room. First floor is horrible, you could hear the cars from the street as they were inside the room. Breakfast was really good.

    « Amazing Breakfast, Okay Location »

    Pros: - Amazing breakfast that fuels you up for the entire day, a selection of coffee, meats, breads, and pastries. - 2 double/queen beds (if you have a family) - 2 complementary bottles of water in a mini fridge - Water kettle - Updated bathroom - Security in room safe - Strong AC - Safe neighborhood - Walk in closet space - Balcony - Extremely helpful front desk Cons - This hotel is not near any major landmarks or attractions (i.e. Colosseum, Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps, etc.), any monument that you want to go to, be prepared to walk and travel 20+ minutes. - Termini station ~20 minute walk - Policlinico station ~12 minute walk - Noise is a big factor as you can hear everything outside and the adjacent rooms - Hair dryer is outside of the bathroom and may be inconvenient - Only 2 English channels (CNBC & BBC) - Some rooms have older décor - Small ants around the room Conclusion: This is a nice hotel for a relaxed itinerary and will fit the needs of many people. The only downside is location.

    « Great little Hotel »

    A bit out of town but great value for money. Rooms were clean, beds comfortable, breakfast great. There are a couple of great Cafes close by if you want a cappuccino. there is also a really good pizzeria just a kilometre away that we had a great meal at. Only complaint was that we couldn't get the water temperature right in the shower. Kept going hot and cold and the shower head was in an awkward position. But that was only a minor thing. Still managed to get clean.

    « Convenient Location, Less Crowded »

    My family had a very pleasant stay at the Globus Hotel. The hotel is just outside the center of Rome, but conveniently located all the necessary transit lines to see Rome in all its Glory. The staff is friendly and helpful. Breakfast offers a variety of healthy and tasty options. The rooms are clean and well kept. It may not have dramatic views all around, but the trade off of a peaceful stress free environment is exactly what I was looking for.

    The room was comfortable .Wi-fi not good - could get a good signal only in the lobby and it was very slow! friendly & helpful staff - they even packed us a breakfast on the day we had to leave for a 5.30 am tour. laction walking about 10min to MRT .

    « Great value »

    Room was relatively small but a good price with multiple day stay. The breakfast buffet was much better than any BW in the US. Dining opportunities in the immediate area, especially during the weekend, were somewhat limited. We departed before the breakfast room opened and they fixed us a couple very nice boxes to go.

    « A Great Place to Stay »

    A hotel that have staff that can speak English well. Love the breakfast buffet that came free with your stay at this hotel - great food choices and was my first in drinking blood orange juice. Their had coffee, water and snacks available in the lobby. Walking distance to the metro, which is a plus for travelers like me. Just found their air conditioning unit to be a little weak. The room does not get as cold as I would like it to be, but it was still OK. We stayed in a family room that had 2 double beds and a sofa bed, which was spacious and comfortable. You can ask the front desk for assistance in obtaining a taxi or ask them to make arrangements for transportation to the airport.

    « Weekend visit to Rome with the family »

    We stayed at this hotel, although it is about a 20minuteI walk from the termini and there isn't anything around it it was still a great place to stay. The hotel stay were pleasant and helpfull. The room (family room King be and bunks) was big, with a PlayStation, soft drinks. Good shower, bed was a bit hard tho. Breakfast was really good , loads of choice. It was all nice and clean and there was a room to leave luggage in if your flight was later after check out .

    « Don't be fooled by the reviews. »

    Dont' be fooled by all the reivews. This is a nice, clean and friendly hotel but it is a 3 star hotel. Walls are thin and the street noise from outside made it impossible to leave the windows open at night for fresh air. The hotel is outside the center by a university. With the termi being 5 mins or so away it is not a bad location but definitley worth it to pay a little more and stay closer to the center. Don't get me wrong this is a great hotel to lay your head if you are planning to be out all day just don't expcect too much. Its definitely a 3 star hotel.

If i go to Rome again i would choose the same hotel for sure. I am very satisfied and my friend too.

    « Globu Hotel, Rome »

    The hotel was pleasant, with comfortable rooms and very helpful staff. It is a little outside the centre, but a short walk to the Metro and tram stops. The room was comfortable and was equipped with a fridge, television (with some English speaking channels). The bathroom was clean, but a little cramped. The wireless internet connection did not work in our room and we had to go to the Reception or bar area to get connected. Also, although the hotel had a bar and restaurant, they closed in the early afternoon, so there was no opportunity to have an evening meal at the hotel.

    « We did not want to leave! »

    I want to first start off by saying when I booked this hotel initially I assumed I booked it too far from the Colosseum, Palatine Hill, and the Vatican, but I was not only 15 minutes by train from the city center! Only took one train to get there! When I got to the hotel I thought it would look ok, since I did not pay a large bill, but when I opened the door me and my son were amazed! Hard wood flooring, amazing shower with a huge shower head coming from the ceiling beautiful bed, with a balcony! We were shocked by how beautiful, and clean the room was and the shower and bathroom was so clean and updated! The other best part was the accommodation of the staff, my son was sick the night before and we needed no sheets, most hotels overseas you will not get new sheets until you check out, but here they said no problem! After a long day of walking around Rome, the room was impeccable just the way it was when we first came. Also, while looking through the book we noticed that the hotel offered kid friendly rooms, and we also found out you can rent video games, and the gaming equipment is in the rooms for the kids. Also, they had a TV set up on the ground floor with kid movies and snacks, and me and my son had some energy to release and were hungry. We asked the guy Victor who was on duty to warm it up, and he put it on a real plate and provided napkins, and even gave us drinks, and snacks for our movie! Amazing! When we were done with the initial drinks, and snacks he still made sure our snacks were refreshed, and we had cold drinks! Even my young son felt guilty because he was so nice to us! One other person I want to commend is the front desk clerk Monia, she made sure I knew where to go for train tickets, she was so nice to my son, and he talked to her and her never talks to anyone he does not know. This place was awesome, great job!

    « Good place to rest your head after a day out »

    Myself and my partner stayed here on 1st-3rd Feb. I booked based on reviews from others on trip advisor and based on a package price with British airways. We were in a room on the ground floor which was spacious, clean and comfortable. The free wifi was great and the breakfast spread was enough to get you started for the day ahead. The only small downside to our stay was that when we arrived and decided to take a brief rest after travelling, it was very noisy due to us possibly being situated right next to the building next door, as we could hear running up and downstairs. Please don't let this put you off as not all rooms in the hotel would've had this issue and at night it was fine. Staff were very friendly here too. I would recommend best western globus as a good place to stay! Also it is close to the metro station which was a great way to get around

    « Excellent, family friendly hotel, close to public transport! »

    We spent 5 nights at Best Western Globus in late August 2015. Very convenient location, close to public transport (Policlinica Metro station only 15 minutes walk). Travelled as a family, with 3 young kids (11, 8, and 2), had breakfast buffet included in our room package. Stayed in a family suite, with a bunk bed, and a huge balcony. Lots of space, clean room, excellent customer service, great selection for breakfast. And most of all, very family friendly hotel! Great value for your money! Highly recommended!

    This hotel is great, the facilities are fantastic. We had a great power shower with free wifi. The hotel offered free breakfast too. The service from the front desk was one of the best I have received in all the best westerns I visit. Although the hotel is out of town a bit you still have great transport kings with busses & trams at this crossroads. I love Best Western!!

    « Close to public transport in quiete area »

    I stayed there with two friends in a spacious and clean room, I got this deal for an incredible Price including breakfast where you will have a great Food choice. Our room was not facing the main street so it was quiet at night/morning. The Metro is just 400 m Walking distance which brings you to the fabolous places like collosseum. It is also easy to reach the Hotel from the Airport, just take suburban Train there.

    « Excellent value and convenient location for families »

    Very clean, modern, spacious for a European hotel. Staff were friendly and accommodating. Location was convenient -- across the street from bus, about 15-minute walk to Termini, and 7-minute walk to metro. The best part was the breakfast -- what a spread! For all the walking we did, and the early start to many of the tours, their breakfast allowed us to leave first thing, ready for anything.

    « Valuable place to stay »

    It has nice value to stay where most attractions are located nearby. Especially Termini station where all the buses and all the train coming from and to airport and all the cities. So it is convenient place to travel around cities. Hotel staffs are very helpful to get advices and room is very clean and comfortable.

    « Not centrally located but a very pleasant stay »

    The Globus hotel is located near the university and is about 2.5 miles from central Rome but with the metro within walking distance getting into the centre was very easy. The staff members were very friendly and helpful with local area knowledge. We had a family room which was very spacious and had bunk beds for the kids. The room was clean and the bedding was comfortable for a good nights sleep. The hotel offers a free PlayStation if needed to keep the kids entertained. A kettle is provided in the room to prepare hot drinks. The breakfast was good with a good choice of beverages, cereals, breads and some hot options. As stated the hotel is located near a university and as such the area nearby remains busy into the night but there was no trouble at all during our 4 night stay. There are several places nearby to eat and drink if you are fed up of the restaurants in the centre of Rome.

    « Hotel close to the University area, but perfectly suitable by every tourist »

    This hotel is a short walk from the university district (Rome I University) and in particular a few steps from the Faculty of Economics. I imagine then that many of the customers will choose it for this reason. However, it's also perfectly suitable for "regular" tourists: it is a good 3 stars hotel, in walking distance from the station "Policlinico" of metro line "B", and even closer to the tramway lines 3 and 19, that lead to some major sights of the city, including the Colosseum and St. Peter. The rooms are basic, but equipped with every comfort of a 3 stars hotel; the bathroom is impeccable, breakfast is in the upper range of the class. The quality / price ratio is good: I paid 64 euro for a night (plus 4 of tourist tax). Overall this hotel is definitely to be recommended.

    5
    « Good location. Fair facilities, good breakfast and lunch buffet »

    I will keep booking this hotel if I will be back to Rome once more, the location is just 20 minutes far from central station and the facilities are fairly fine and very clean. We used the lunch buffet for only 10 euros and we could eat a dessert as well. I actually enjoyed the dessert more that the main course! ??

    « Ideal location near Sapienza University »

    Stayed for 1 night for a official visit to Sapienza University, which is just across the road. The room to the single traveler was huge and was ideally for 4 ( 2 adults and 2 childrens) as it has a bunk bed besides the double bed. The room was clean and functional. The breakfast was decent. Would recommend it if you have work at the university.

    3
    « Not bad but in the middle of nowhere »

    The hotel is oldish with obvious wear signs, but clean and well maintained. It is close to campus of the University, so if you have business there, it is quite convenient. Otherwise, it is in residential area with nothing much around. Even eateries are sparse and there is some distance to the metro station. Good points of the hotel: service is exceptionally pleasant, rooms are quite large, mine also had a balcony which would have been quite pleasant in the warmer time of year. Breakfast is good, no vegetables, but there is selection of fresh fruits, coffees excellent. Bad points: bed, though very large, but hard ? both mattress and pillows; elevator is a little bit on the shaky side ? sometimes it needed to repeatedly push the button to get it going; the room is cleaned with a very strong-smelling detergent ? it is so pungent that I had to keep windows open for at least quarter of hour to be able to be there (beware these with allergies!). And the most annoying thing was shower ? almost impossible to regulate water temperature and the worst thing was that no matter how you take care, water spilled through gaps of shower curtain and flooded bathroom and, as there is no outlet, bath mat always becomes soggy.

    « An ok business hotel with a reasonable price »

    Stayed for a week. A decent price-quality ratio, ok rooms, functional free wi-fi, business center with printer/copy-machine in the lobby. Great breakfast. The bathrooms and especially showers were tiny- not a problem for me because I am small myself, but for a bigger person this might be an issue. About 500m to nearest subway station and not far away from the historical center of Rome. Nothing very extremely special, but an ok hotel to stay in.

    Nice hotel in Rome, very basic but clean and friendly staff. Rooms very small, showers tiny and no real room for luggage or personal belongings, saying that the bed was comfortable and the hotel very clean so that was positive, breakfast was typical European, no real choices if you cannot eat bread based products as mostlybcakesapastries. Had problems payment being taken in advance when not authorised to, then over payment the a week after the trip a double payment. Now the task of trying to recover the finds. The booking through booking.com Was clearly, pay at arrival with a credit card to secure only, no funds to be taken. I am now overcharged.

    « Everything's already been said about this hotel ;) »

    Everything has been said that needs to be said about this hotel on TripAdvisor. It's mostly true and it doesn't need repeat again. Large clean room. One thing we didn't like at all : sooooooo tiny bathroom that there was only a bathroom sink (without even a counter), a bidet (what's a bidet doing in a hotel bathroom nowadays anyway? when the bathroom itself is so minuscule), and a minute shower stall so tiny that a very slim person couldn't turn around without banging on the wall. A handheld shower only! Bathroom greatly needs a renovation and enlargement. Good elaborate breakfast compared to North American standard (speaking of free breakfast of course). Same thing every day though but so what. At home, you do have same thing everyday right? ;) Personnel at the reception are most of them very helpful and doing their best to help except one young lady who seemed as if she couldn't care less about the client's needs. We must also mention one of them, Simona, who is exceptional in customer service. She does her utmost to help whenever we needed help and she does it with patience and a smile. She's furthermore multilingual and this helps a lot when you are in a foreign country and don't speak or understand the language. Thank you so very much Simona to help make our stay easier ;) Now the tips : we were told that the nearer you are to the lobby level, the best reception for your wifi. And we can confirm this since we were on the 2nd floor and we didn't encounter any problem at all contrary to what we read here. Wifi worked beautifully. We can't confirm though that the higher floors have bad reception since we weren't there?. Now for the Gelatarias ;) : you have 2 very good ones on the opposite side of same street as the hotel (Fattori, nearer the hotel, where we went several times, and another one a little further down the street, Geleteria II Pellicano which we discovered only at the last moment). We did try several gelaterias in the historic centres and those didn't impress us at all. Two very good restaurants not far from the hotel : Brachi & Abbrachi (getting out of the hotel, you turn on your right and go down the street to the end of Viale Ippocrate, you turn at your right again, and it's just there around the corner (see our comments on this restaurant). Another good restaurant is La Stiva which you can find, going same direction as Brachi but continue straight ahead instead of turning on your right (name of street changes I think and we don't remember the name) and the left side of the street you'll see the restaurant (see our comments on this restaurant) All in all, for a budget hotel, it's not too bad (except for the bathroom), and we'll recommend since transportation to anywhere is within easy reach. Most tour operators also come to pick you up at the hotel and bring you back there at night.

    We really enjoyed our stay here. The kids loved the room, and the little adventure that was included. The breakfast had variety and made feeding kids in a foreign country easier. The room was cleaned daily, right down to pajamas folded on the pillow and our stuffed toys artfully displayed on the kids beds. It is close to a Metro station, Pizzerias, cafes and gelato stores. We will definitely stay here next time we visit Italy!
