BEST WESTERN Hotel Artdeco,Rome
  • 4
    « Convenient and Clean »

    It was a nice hotel. Don't expect North American sized Best Western rooms. The room was small, even by the standards of the other rooms we had in Italy. It's conveniently located, about ten minutes from Termini station, and even closer to Repubblica station for the Metro. The breakfast was good and all the staff were very friendly. I really have nothing to complain about. I guess it gets 4 stars because it was my least favourite (but still very good) room of our trip.

    « Very Nice Hotel in Rome »

    Although a short distance northeast of Termini, so further from many of Rome's best places to explore, this is a great hotel. Staff were very friendly and helpful, the room had a bath (a jacuzzi), and the breakfast was wonderful, decent quality. We will stay here again, good value.

    « Great stay »

    We were pretty happy with our 3 night stay at the hotel. After reading about cramped hotel rooms in Rome were worried since we had a teenaged daughter. The Triple room we had booked was quite spacious.Very close to Castro Pretorio station and walkable distance from Termini too.The Staff at the reception was quite helpful and warm. Buffet breakfast was decent.Has a supermarket closeby for essentials. A quiet decent neighbourhood to walk any time during the day/night.

    « Great stay at boutique style hotel »

    Loved my stay at this local spot within walking distance to Termini. Great restaurants and shopping within a 20 minute walk. Staff was extremely helpful, accommodated us upon a much too early arrival. We were able to check-in and have breakfast. Room was very clean and comfortable and there was 3 of us in the room. Bathrooms were clean and water pressure great. Great stay.

    « Not Impressed »

    Wasn't impressed at all! Was greeted by an old grumpy man who seemed to shout at me, the room wasn't cosy looking at all. The shower was designed for a midget? no room at all. Room service food was a rip off, no English channels on TV and the list provided didn't match up with the TV. There was only one plug socket to charge my phone which was the other side of the room so could not charge phone while in bed. The iron which the hotel borrowed me was something from the 60's you couldn't even put water in it! The toilet flush didn't work properly, this hotel doesn't really have a lot going for it. Also make sure you have Google maps or you'll probably get lost looking for the Hotel as the area looks so similar it's almost impossible to navigate around.

    « Exceptional service »

    Superb customer service should be mentioned first. The staff is very helpful in assisting travelers with their needs. When asked about reservations for Galleria Borghese, the front desk manager had called the gallery and upon our return to the hotel gave us the reservation number. Beds are clean and comfortable. Restrooms were spotless. What else is needed?

    « Very reasonable »

    Good location (easy walk to the train station in which you can take a bus to sights), clean and fairly comfortable rooms, friendly staff and a fair price. The continental breakfast is only 3 euros and is simple but filling and tasty and caters to all needs.

    « Great place not far from the main train station »

    Walking distance to Termini train station, a very nice hotel with very friendly staff that speak several languages. Metro station close by and bus stop a little further down the street. Breakfast was good. They have a restaurant open that is open for dinner (except Sundays), which I did not have a chance to try, but the menu looks good. Rooms facing the street are a bit noisy, though.

    « Best Western Rome »

    The hotel offers excellent value in a convenient area. It is within walking distance of the main train station and in the area of some fine restaurants. Be sure to check your credit card statement as their accounting system does not credit prepayments to the final bill. This occurred in at a hotel in Milan and may be symptomatic of Italy's hotels.

    « Two fine nights in Roma »

    We were very happy with our two night stay at the Art Deco. Our room was large by European standards and spotlessly clean. Staff at the front desk were pleasant and very helpfull. All spoke excellent English which was far better than our basic Italian. The area is quiet at night with a few restaurants and a small convenience store nearby. Pretty good breakfast available in the hotel restaurant for a couple of Euro. Ten minute walk to the train station.

    « Great Hotel! »

    This hotel is walking distance to termini train station ( about 10 mins unless you have heavy luggage). The staff are very friendly. The room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast is probably the best deal in Rome & it is very good. It was reasonably priced for its location in Rome. I would recommend this hotel!

    « Excellent central hotel »

    An amazing hotel, located in the centre of Rome. Near Open Top bus routes, just a short walk from Roma Termini station and airport buses. Staff very friendly and spoke great English. Their breakfast is to die for!! Unfortunately could not sample their cakes as I am gluten free, though they did provide me with a gluten free roll...Cooked breakfast, cereals,bread, rolls, fruit juices and of course cakes...all for €3 per person. Very pleased with this hotel.

    « "Good value! One of the few hotels with a king sized bed. »

    This is a charming hotel. The bed was very low to the ground, but comfortable. Our room was very clean, and very luxurious towels! We did not book the room with breakfast included, but we purchased their breakfast buffet while staying there. It was only 3 euro per person, a real bargain!! The food was fabulous, especially the croissant with Nutella filling. It is an easy walk to the metro from the hotel. There are some nice restaurants within easy walking.

    « Really great stst »

    My family and I just returned from a short "midterm" break in Rome. We spent quite a bit of time choosing the *right* hotel. I admit that even after all that, I was a little afraid, but from the moment we stepped into the Best Western Art Deco, our fears were allayed. It wasn't because of a grand reception area, rather it was the kindness and warmth of the gentleman at the front desk. We'd taken an early flight from London and my 5 year old was sleeping. We must have looked a weary mess. Even though it was a couple hours before check-in he found us a room! We were so grateful. His name is Gion/Gian, I believe. He, Antonio, and Georgina (the only woman out front) were so helpful with directions, advice, and everything in-between. We reserved a family room. It was very spacious and very nicely appointed. The breakfast (which was not included) was inexpensive and quite adequate. The breakfast wait staff are kind and helpful. Finally, the hotel is close to the Metro. It really is quite easy to get around and if you don't mind the walk you could certainly make it to the center of the city. We'd definitely stay here again. Kinda felt like we made friends.

    « Art deco styling »

    Handy for the airport and our early morning flight. No time to sample breakfast so unable to comment. TURKISH embassy is nearby which has strong police presence. Also nearby is a sleazy-ish street with 'adult' cinemas etc so we avoided this when returning after dinner. PROS: The art deco styling is well done and the hotel feels very fresh. Room decor is unique and unlike most others. Helpful staff. CONS: Tight space in bathroom, especially the wc and bath. Not sure how a large gentleman would manage!! Before booking we checked that coffee facilities were in the room as we had an early start and no time for breakfast. Don't know about anyone else but I need caffeine to set me up. However there were no facilities that we could find. Perhaps we could have asked? The reason for the 3star rating is based on a short stay of a few hours without breakfast. Might stay again but opt for a larger room (though there is another Rome hotel we liked more)

    « Good Value in Rome. Quite location. »

    Surprisingly quiet location. You can walk from the train station. Not a far walk but not close either. There are many hotels closer to the train station but not at this price for what you get here. Overall a good value. Many good restaurants on the surrounding streets. Good breakfast! It had hot foods like scrambled eggs and cold foods like prosciutto, granola cereal, baked goodies, fruits, cheeses, yogurt and lots of other things. The only downside to this place is the elevator. They are very, very small so if you have lots of bulky luggage you might have to send it up alone and depending on which floor you are staying you have to get on an even smaller elevator. Overall we were very pleased with our stay here and would definitely go back!

    « Near to the station, but not much else. »

    I booked the hotel on the recommendation of colleagues when visiting Rome for work. The location was very good in terms of the station, but some way from the main sights, so if travelling to Rome in the future I would definitely stay closer to the main drag. The hotel itself is clean and has great decor in a 20's style as the name suggests. The theme is carried through to the rooms which make s a nice change from the usual soulless tourist hotels. I was disappointed with my room however, which despite the grand pictures on the website, was the width of a single bed and a small desk, and didn't afford much comfort. Despite being on a fairly quiet road for traffic, the room felt noisy both from outside and inside the hotel which meant I didn't get a great night sleep during my stay. Probably the best part of my stay was the breakfast, which at €3 was a bargain and set me up for the day. Not a bad hotel - particularly for the price, but be prepared for a walk to the main attractions of the city, and perhaps call ahead and ask for a good size room.

    « Just what we wanted »

    We wished to take our daughter to Rome for 4 nights to celebrate her 50th birthday. Our local travel agents, Trailfinders, U.K., initially suggested very pricey hotels but when asked for something at a more reasonable cost, but still handy for the sights, came up with the Best Western Art Deco Hotel. It was a brilliant suggestion, The hotel is well placed within easy walking distance of the Termini Station which is served by airport shuttle trains and most of the local buses. It is also within walking distance of most of the historic sights, although, with the high temperatures, we used the excellent, frequent and cost effective local buses. The hotel itself is in a quiet street, handy for a number of excellent restaurants, if one chose to dine out. Breakfast was a delight with the hotel appearing to avoid the peak hiatus so common elsewhere. It appeared that the hotel had been refurbished recently but that could have been an illusion caused by the excellent cleaning evident in all public rooms and bedrooms. Our bedroom (510) was quite small but so well designed and furnished that we were more than happy. The staff were both attentive and knowledgeable complementing the general ambiance of the establishment. So why not five stars - well the building is "interesting"! While on the outside it looks quite standard, inside it has a multitude of levels with steps and narrow lifts which make it not ideal for visitors with mobility problems - for others it is a great find and we would have no hesitation to return when we are next in Rome.

    « Art Deco should appeal to everyone »

    My stay at the Hotel Art Deco was very pleasant. The hotel is on a nice clean quiet street. The neighborhood is a mix of other hotels, restaurants and a couple of carry outs. There is a small grocery store named PAM about a block away. My room was large and spacious. I paid a little extra for a larger room and bed but it was well worth it to me. The hotel offers breakfast for 3 euros. The cost is added onto your hotel tab . The staff was friendly, helpful and efficient. There is a per night tax that the city of Rome charges. The staff is supposed to inform you of this at check in. Guests pay the tax as well as any other charges like breakfast when you check out. Termini train station is about 4 blocks away. It's huge so it's hard to miss. Travelers can catch trains, metro subway, or city busses here. You can also board city tour busses across the street. It's a very busy place. The street signs are on the walls of the building above the first floor. No signs sticking out of poles like in the US. The rooms had soap dispensers with a one soap for everything thing approach. No bar soap or separate shampoo. The reason I didn't give the hotel a full 5 rating for is because the internet service was intermittent. It seemed to work best in the lobby and on the first floor rooms. There is a p.c. with wi fi and printer in the lobby for guests to use. I use my phone for everything . Not having consistent internet was a problem for me at first. I had to go "old school " and get paper maps to supplement my information. After I made that adjustment I was fine. I traveled all around Rome and visited other cities in Italy without issues. The streets were crowded but I felt safe everywhere I went.

    Great location close to Termini station. Wonderful hot breakfast with tons of food options. Helpful front desk staff always available to assist with directions, taxis, suggestions, etc. Room and bathroom were fairly spacious, clean and pleasant.

    « Pleasant stay »

    If you expect all the luxuries of a 4-star hotel, you would be disappointed. Frankly, I didn't have these expectations since being a seasoned traveler learned to put things in perspective. My husband and I stayed at this hotel in July 2016 and were quite happy with our stay. Although hotel is in a need of a facelift, it is clean and well maintained. We liked the location: tucked away from the noise of tourist attractions, yet very central: it is located in a quite area next to some embassies, only two minute walk to a metro station. The breakfast was quite good and service was polite and friendly. I would definitely come back.

    « Quaint and elegant »

    Loved the hotel- has a cool character and ambiance. Rooms were nice and very clean and modern. Service was superb- everyone was so friendly and helpful. A real treat. Only downside- a bit away from the touristy stuff (which could be a plus: was for me). walking distance to subways and Roma Termini and many great and authentic Roman food restaurants. For our last day in Rome (traveling from Pompeii back to the US), this was perfect!

    « Not a 4 stars at all »

    Being in Rome in August is not a good idea but, when you pay for a 4 stars hotel and you have the feeling they are offering you a lower level of what you expected things get worse. The hotel seems to be refurbished, but still, its facilities is not in accordance with a 4 stars hotel standard (check my positive review of a real 4 stars hotel in Florence). Despite of the old facilities and the high turist rate that every hotel charges you in Rome (6€ per person per day), the breakfast was poor and I regret not investing a little bit more to stay in a better rated hotel which could be following a 4 stars standard for real. The only positive is that staff was friendly.

    « Rome hotel. Best western art deco »

    This is very nice quainted hotel. The location is good away from the noise and traffic. We didn't use metro but use Uber once when we were too tired to walk back at night. The breakfast is great. We loved it, plenty of selections from fruits pastries eggs cheese cold cut and many more. The elevator is small and if you stay on the 5th floor and up you have to either walk up one floor and take a very old style elevator (only two persons without luggage )up to your floor. Or you can take a nicer elevator(you can take luggage with you) then get off at 4th and walk to take the old elevator up or walk one floor. We didn't walk up because my husband has bad knees. Other thing is the bathtub which is very high up and no hand rail. So if you are have balance issue or walk up stair is your concern maybe you can request for lower floor. Everybody in my group were happy and love though. Also there are many great restaurants in the neibourhood and price are cheaper than the one in town center.

    « An extremely pleasant stay »

    We were very happy with our stay at this Best Western . It's location made it very easy for us to get to all the places we wanted to visit in Rome. The staff assisted us greatly with the information we needed to do so. During the majority of our travels, we stay at Best Western. This one is tops!

    « A great value hotel in a good location »

    We liked everything about the hotel, the spacious and clean king-bed room with lovely bathroom and massage tub, the excellent hot breakfast for just 3 Euros -- and the charming décor throughout. An easy 10 minute walk from the station. Very well maintained and well run. Only one glitch was a very unpleasant evening front desk employee - Giancarlo (dark hair and moustache)- who was surly and insensitive with a young Muslim couple with a baby (who had a reservation problem and were stuck)- and who gave us sloppy and incorrect info to get to Trastevere. A small black spot on an excellent hotel

    We stayed here for two nights during our express Europe Trip! Location wise it is great!! Just few minutes walking distance from the Termini Station that will take you everywhere and there is another station pretty near by too!

    « Solid »

    Cheap and good breakfast (E3) with comfortable beds, clean hotel, good AC, and pretty good location. Front desk staff don't really offer much or seem very friendly so that would be the one thing they could improve on as we passed staff for 3 straight days and they barely said a "hello." Not a huge deal though and we would definitely stay there again.

    « Would definitely go back »

    Very nicely appointed hotel, away from, but a walkable distance to tourist areas. Staff was excellent and spoke English. Rooms are small but decorated tastefully in the art deco style. Elevator is only big enough for 2 people with luggage, and it is painfully slow.

    « Lovely Hotel »

    Loved this hotel the staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was good and the rooms were really well decorated. It was in a very good location near to the train station and the WIFI was very good only problem was that you had to get a code for the WIFI every 24 hours. I would recommend this hotel.

    « Average with some good aspects »

    Having stayed here once before 2 years ago we returned as the location was good and it was comfortable and clean. Having stayed at other hotels in Italy most of the staff seemed indifferent to us. The rooms were clean and comfortable but the breakfast was of limited choice and was not as good as our previous visit. We had several problems which were dealt with after several reminders/requests and we would think twice before returning to this hotel.

    « Nice hotel in a quiet neighbourhood »

    I stayed here for 30 nights in May and enjoyed the experience. The hotel is clean and quiet. The staff is helpful and friendly. The breakfast selection and service is excellent. I liked the location because it was close enough to Termini Station to easily walk there but far enough away that there was not so much activity in the neighbourhood. There are a lot of very good restaurants close to the hotel. It is on the north end of the city centre but still close enough to all the major attractions to walk. I loved the staircase - it made me want to take the stairs instead of the elevator.

    5
    « Excellent hotel »

    We stayed there for 4 nights in April. The hotel is situated in a quiet area next to several embassies and very close to Termini Station so you can take the train (15 Euro-30 minutes) or the bus from the airport. It is also very close to the main attractions: Fontana di Trevi (20 minutes walk), Phanteon, Piazza Navone (30 minutes) or Colosseum. The hotel is very, very clean. In fact it is one of the cleanest hotels we have ever stayed. Loredana and Nadia, the clean ladies are doing a good job. The food is also very good and cheap. For 3 Euros you can have fresh fruit and food. The waiters Mihaela and the man( I can't remember his name) are the best. The people at the front desk are also very helpful. They can give you precious information if you ask. We would certainly stay here again. Tip- Ask for a room on the corner. They are bigger.

    « Nice hotel. Indifferent staff. Horrible location. »

    This hotel is ok. The rooms are larger than most rooms we have had in Europe. There was no shower in our room. A large tub with a had held shower wand. Hated that. Our WiFi did not work the entire time we were there so I had to go to lobby to use WiFi down there. I informed the front desk several times daily but they just did not seem to care. To their credit when I checked out they gave me some credit for the lack of WiFi. the neighborhood is sketchy. A porno movie theatre( I didn't even know they existed anymore!) is right across the street. Many street lights were broken in the area and the streets were full of garbage and rats but than so is a lot of Rome. The elevator is extremely small and you have to use one elevator to get to the 1st floor and another to get to floor 2 thru 5. Probably would stay here again but would see if there was something better first.

    « excellent quality/price! »

    I was here for 1 night, chose it for the reasonable price, and location (not far from Termini station. The hotel is as its name implies: totally in Art Deco Style, wherever possible! Really nicely done! Good breakfast, clean rooms, although the flushing of the toilet requires some time pushing the button on the wall... A common problem with that type of flush... Excellent service! I forgot my shower stuff when I left in the morning, and I called after lunch, and they told me I could return whenever I wanted to collect it, which I did the same afternoon. Very well done!! :-) Would return definitely, if I needed! Price is reasonable for what you get (Rome, close to the station, hotel w/ breakfast)

    « Fine hotel, but would choose a different location next time in Rome »

    My husband and I stayed here in early May. Staff was very friendly and helpful with directions. Enjoyed the breakfast server that helped me say "grazie" correctly-wish I remembered her name. We also enjoyed the breakfast. Our room was surprisingly large! Must vary from room to room, as one couple we were traveling with barely had room to open their luggage, while the other had a more standard sized room. Good Value! My one complaint is unrelated to the hotel itself but rather the location. The hotel was close enough to walk to the bus/subway station-so everything was in reach via public transportation. But, we spent a lot of time walking to see as many sites as possible, as the hotel is not near major attractions. To be truthful, this was our 3rd stop on a 10 day trip and we walked most days from dawn to dusk so I was getting a little tired. BUT--if I were to do it again, I would have paid more to stay in a hotel nearer to Piazza Navona or Campo de Fiori. From that area, the walk would also be closer to Trestavere, the Pantheon, and other areas we really enjoyed.

    We stayed here for 5 nights and enjoyed our stay. the hotel is close to Roma termini which makes accessing the metro and train station very easy. The room was very nice. Super comfy bed, big bathroom by European standards with a nice big jacuzzi tub. Nice breakfast buffet each morning for only 3 euro. Overall good value and location. Best of all its very close to the best Gelato in Rome at the Gelateria de Romana.

    Ancient Rome was close by, so was the train station, metro, train station mall and within the mall were some of the comforts of home. You could get your cell phone sim card, after that you can download the app. for the metro. After that buy the metro tickets------you can then go anywhere. It only took 15 Euros to buy a train ticket from the airport to the train station.

    « Good but Not Art Deco »

    Nice hotel with very clean modern rooms and bathrooms. Breakfast is more than adequate and staff is very accommodating. Only disappointing factor was that this was not an Art Deco Hotel. Located in a quiet lane 5 minutes from the main station and so conveniently located for sightseeing. Beware though there are a dozen Best Westerns around and you may hop from one to the other so get your directions clear. Would definitely stay the next time again.

    « Nice, quiet hotel with good breakfast »

    This is the 2nd time we've stayed at this hotel. It isn't right in the "hot" tourist area but a quiet street surrounded by several embassies. It's a short walk & subway ride to Spanish Steps, etc. The elevator system is a little bizarre, but it can be avoided if you ask for a room on floor 4 or lower. Rooms are good sized and well equiped.

    The hotel is around 10 minutes walk from from Roma Termini or Termini metro station, around 20 minutes walk to the main attractions.

    « Pristine, clean and a great location »

    Just read completed at 2 night stay here. Nice hotel located near to Roma Termini and with lots of restaurants close by. The style of the hotel is Art Deco and that is an attraction in itself. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable with funky Art Deco styling. The rate includes a really good breakfast of egg, bacon, cereal, baking , cheese and meat etc You are also offered cappuccino, expresso etc. The only downside was the Wifi which was very poor and unreliable for much of anything. The other issue is that when we arrived they were regrouping the carpet and the smell was gross. Fortunately they moved us to a higher floor with a room that was not as nice but it was away from the smell They did apologize for it but it was really gross

    « Nice Hotel, friendly staff and great experience »

    Nice hotel, probably 10 minute walk from Termini Station which is very nice, since it's feels a lot safer than other hotels near the station.

    « Fine place to stay in Rome »

    We stayed three nights in Best West Art Deco, Rome. The location is good, although you better use public transport to visit the attractions. The subway is around the corner and will take you to the many highlights in this scenic city. Termini station is one subway stop or at ten minutes walking distance. The rooms are good and clean, exactly what you can expect with Best Western. For 3 euro you can join the breakfast buffet.

    « Good hotel, great staff »

    We had two nights in this hotel at the start of our girls' trip in Italy. It is close to Termini station but a fair walk to most of the major sights. We used the hop on hop off bus tour and the first stop was a short walk so this made the location less problematic. Our room was spacious (by European standards), and was more than adequate for the three of us. The hotel was clean, comfortable and the staff was very helpful and accomodating. Breakfast in the hotel was €3 - great value!

Free wifi wasnt a very strong signal so was unable to stream. Bit of walk to everywhere but the station which is great for burning off excessive calories. Would recommend.

    « Wouldn't bother staying here again. »

    Pro: The staff members are friendly and accommodating. Con: The beds are very hard with pillows like pancakes. Our non-smoking room had a bathroom with a window that opened onto a terrace where people were constantly smoking - even with the window closed our room was over powered with the stench of smoke. The wifi was very unreliable. Also, the restaurant seemed much more expensive than others in the area. We chose to eat at other excellent restaurants nearby.

    « Lovely staff, great location, fabulous value »

    As part of a group of four ladies "seeing Rome" I booked us two twin rooms at Art Deco as it looked different from the usual budget hotels. It was fab, the rooms were well appointed and reasonably spacious, clean and comfortable. The reception staff were very patient and helpful and both booking in and out was seamless. We were given great advice about transport and restaurants. The bar and restaurant at the hotel were not really welcoming in the evening but the breakfasts were just what was required and were such good value.

    Stayed in February and got this at the last minute for a great price. One stop from Termini and easy to find. Receptionist was lovely and welcoming. The room was quirky with the Art Deco and I thought it was beautifully decorated. Perfectly clean and the wifi worked well which was a nice change. The breakfast was 3 euros each and that was a bargain as they had a lovely selection laid out and piping hot coffee. All the staff were very nice and welcoming. Would highly recommend as the value for money is excellent.

    « THE STAFF WAS EXCELLENT!! »

    We had 2 rooms at the Rome Best Western Artdeco just a few days ago. The rooms are a little on the small side but they were clean and served their purpose. The hotel is located near public transportation. The staff was delightful. Everyone on staff made sure that our stay was a pleasant one. One staff member, Gianluca(hope that I spelled his name right) went above and beyond to ensure that we were well taken care of. Thank You to all of the staff at this location.

    « Nice location, clean and comfortable »

    Artdeco is located very close to Termini central station which makes it very easy to travel to and from the airport. The area is nice and peaceful with some little restaurants and mini-market just opposite the hotel. All in all, we had a very pleasant stay and might consider staying here again. The only downside was that the room was very warm and the bathroom even warmer. Also the shower was quite tricky - it was hard to find the perfect balance between hot and cold water. Wi-Fi worked ok, but it was weird that the individual codes only worked for 24 hours at a time. The breakfast was worth 3 euros a day with fresh fruit and fantastic pastries.

    Only stayed for one night, but loved the decor throughout the hotel. Room (and the shower) was abit on the small side and I could only find one socket. Very clean everywhere with patchy WI-FI in the room. It's free though. Rea?ly handy for the train station to the airport.

    stayed in the month of February wid my wife. Its near train station hardly 500 mtrs.. Reception desk people were so friendly and always smiling face with excellent piece of hospitality, they helped me a lot regarding booking of taxi and much more things.. Room is perfect wid comfort bedding. However, breakfast part was not good as we were totally veggie couple, not much varieties in Veg item, asked for Omelette but it was told that it is chargeable, otherwise enjoyed our stay... will recommend everyone to stay here..

    « Good location, fantastic staff »

    I absolutely loved this hotel. The rooms are decorated with Art Deco accents. My economy room was admittedly tiny, but it was so comfortable, and so faultlessly clean that I didn't mind one bit. The location of the hotel was perfect for the activities on my trip. It's just a couple of blocks from the metro/train station, which I used daily. It's also not all that far from places like the Republic and the Colosseum. I thought it was quite easy to get around from the hotel. The breakfast here was the best I had on the entire trip. The real gem of the Artdeco, though is the staff. They were spectacular. They were always willing to help and guide, and were very good with odd requests and special needs. The housekeeping staff was very patient when I stopped them with questions, and the desk staff offered quite a lot of helpful advice. There were two people in particular I thought really went above and beyond: I didn't catch the name of the afternoon desk manager, but he spoke ten languages and really went out of his way to be gracious. I was also very impressed with a young woman in the dining room named Mihaela, who was so sweet and has an amazing memory. If I ever return to Rome, I will definitely return to the Artdeco. I would recommend it without hesitation.

    « Wonderful Hotel, Great Location »

    We booked the hotel after seeing good reviews and it definitely lived up to and exceeded expectations. It's located in walking distance from the Castro Pretorio metro station, just 1 stop from the Roma Termini so it's a great location. We could be at the colosseum in under 10 minutes. The surrounding area is very quiet, away from the madness with armed guards from the Turkish Embassy near so it felt very safe to walk around at night. There are some great restaurants, a supermarket, gelaterias and pizza places just down the road also if you don't want to go too far from the hotel. The hotel staff were very friendly, more than willing to answer our questions on where to shop, when the metro closes and opens and offering us breakfast if we wished to have it. Our room was a king comfort room (130 if I remember correctly), which was spacious and very clean, plus a bathroom with a whirlpool bath. It does come with a hairdryer and body wash, shampoo etc so you can leave that stuff at home. Despite being on the 1st floor, the room was very quiet, we were never disturbed by outside noise or anything like that. The room had temperature controls so we could adjust it to how we liked. There's also a safe inside the wardrobe. Overall, we had a great stay and I'd definitely recommend this hotel. My only criticism would be the wifi.. it works but it isn't great. You're given a wifi code which lasts for 2 days so if you're staying longer you'll need to grab another one!

    « BW Art Deco makes the grade »

    The BW website was limited to get an idea on what to expect almost too controlled. However Front Desk, Dining Services have passed with flying colors very minor issue with room that got resolved rapidly. My expectations weren't too high when I first went in, however Front Desk was swift and very courteous in checking in. Antonio and all the Front Desk staff went above the call of duty, patientce, dilligence and excellent hosting sums up my experience. The only drawback is the tax+breakfast fees that are not properly displayed on BW website nonetheless 6 Euro City Tax+3 Euro Breakfast is tolerable. Breakfast buffet has improved compared to the previous posting by another user. Excellent scrambled eggs that were very nourishing, cereal & yoghurt station, pastry station, breads of wide variety and good quality, enchantingly delicious coffee, top, hardworking, very attentive dining room staff. Rooms humble, clean, well kept. Room size is minimal additional power outlets will be needed. The only issue I came across was drainage in the shower, when I brought the issue I was immediately offered a new room and all my clothes were moved which was very convinient. I have no problem recomending BW Art Deco and will continue to bring my bussines.

    « Fantastic Hotel- Ignore the negatives »

    My fiancee and I have just got back from a 3 night break for his 30th Birthday. We found the hotel to be very welcoming and in a fantastic location. Hotel: If you have ever been to Italy before then you will find the hotel to be traditional and classic. Very relaxed atmosphere. Yes it could do with some maintaining like carpet but wasn't an issue for me. One of the staff members wasn't very friendly or helpful but then again not everyone wakes up happy in the morning. Location: Short walk of Roma Termini station, from where there is a convenient direct railway link to Fiumicino Airport. We arrived at night and it did appear a little unsafe but I suppose wasn't any different to London streets. As we are youngsters we walked everywhere with no problems. The colosseum was a 30 min walk but we took a lovely scenic route, stopped at a few piazzas and had a coffee. Its a 10 minute bus ride to the vatican from Termini Station. All the Piazza's, pantheon and trevi are within walking distance too. Room: Clean, comfortable and lovely decorated. My main thing about hotel rooms is how clean they are and this one is very clean and rooms well maintained. Wifi was a little slow in the room and could of done with a kettle but other than that it was fine. Breakfast: Great selection of cooked scrambled eggs & bacon, pastries, yogurts, fruit and cereals. Cant complain, there was something for everyone. Fabio was lovely always there to serve you a nice drink in the evening. I really enjoyed our stay and would go back. Ignore the negative reviews this hotel is just perfect for overall for visiting the beautiful sights of Rome.

    « Ideal location for seeing the sights »

    We returned from a 5 night break in Rome last week never having visited a big city before.Arrived after dark, hotel wasn't difficult to find. First impression was that the area wasn't the nicest , streets dimly lit not many people about. Staff at hotel we're welcoming and helpful ,gave us a map and explained the area and the metro stops. The Art Deco style of the hotel is very nice, some areas need a little attention, the carpet on the staircase is rather worn and as well as being potentially dangerous lets down the rest of the decor. The room was quite small but we'll furnished,large bed was very comfortable,plenty of space for clothes,bathroom clean and all the usual stuff provided.Room was really hot when we arrived I had to turn the heating off.TV in room,hairdryer, wifi was a bit hit and miss.Breakfast was very good great selection and staff friendly.once we got our bearings found that the hotel was in ideal location. 2 mins from the nearest blue line metro station and 5 mins from the Termini accessing all the available transport. A couple of good restaurants nearby we went to the Taverne Pretoriana a couple of minutes away, food lovely and very reasonable, went there most nights. Only real problem in the hotel was the hot water. You could get a fairly warm shower in the morning but in the evening after a long day walking the water wasn't hot enough for a shower let alone a bath .We asked at reception and they sent someone who said he would reset the boiler but it didn't improve until the following evening and even then it wasn't that hot. Would have liked at least a kettle in the room, would have loved a cuppa on returning in the evening especially as the cafe in the dining room didn't seem to be open. All in all was very pleased with the hotel and would recommend as a base for seeing Rome, price we paid was excellent € 378 including the compulsory €50 city tax for 5 nights bed and breakfast. Not in the glamorous hotel area but absolutely fine. Had a fantastic time.

    « Below-average in Standard Room, definitely not worth 4 stars »

    I stayed in this hotel a few years ago in a Superior Room, but now I returned and stayed in a Standard Room as the price was low. HOTEL LOOK AND FEEL: a bit oldish, and low-key from the outside. LOCATION: conveniently located, at walking distance of Roma Termini station, from where there is a convenient direct railway link to Fiumicino Airport. The real centre of Rome is a much longer -though nice- walk. However, there is a subway station located close to the hotel, which brings you there in no time (with the Colosseum only being 3 stops away). ROOM: We stayed in a Superior Room, which was not very spacious and far from sound-proof. Could also be cleaner, especially the bathroom, where the bath tub was meant to be used as a shower but that did not work well as the shower head could not be attached anywhere. The WiFi was not reliable and rather slow. BREAKFAST: poor quality, no fresh croissants (they clearly came from a pre-packed industrial stack and not fresh from a bakery). SERVICE: not very efficient, and in the afternoon it took a while to retrieve the suitcase I had left in keeping after having checked out in the morning - with the taxi waiting outside and the meter running ... Overall, it was just average and certainly not worth 4 stars. But... you do pay the whopping 6 EUR per person per night city tax that applies to 4-star hotels. In other words, there are better deals to be found in Rome, even if you stick to a 3-star hotel in that area.

    « Just Loved It!! »

    My husband and I have just returned home after a 3 night stay at the Best Western Artdeco Hotel. The hotel is situated in a quiet area about a 10 min walk from the Termini train/bus station on Via Palestro. Check-in was quick and simple and the lady at reception was very friendly and helpful. Our room wasn't ready but we were able to leave our bags and go off and explore. Our room was on the first floor and we just loved the quirkiness of it. The bathroom was large with a shower over the bath and hairdryer, plenty of towels (the bath towels were large!) and bidet. We had opted for a twin room because it was about £30 less expensive and I'm pleased that we did because the twin beds were pushed together and made an extra large bed!! The room was spotless and had a mini bar, TV & safe in the wardrobe. It was quite honestly one of the nicest rooms we have ever stayed in and we've traveled a lot.. Breakfast was included in the rate and was perfectly adequate.It would seem that the buffet is a bit more substantial at the weekend with bacon and scrambled eggs provided as well as extra fruit. There are only two negative things that I can say about this hotel. The first is that the carpet on the main staircase is in places worn right through and this gives that area a somewhat tatty look. The second is that there was one male receptionist who we found to be abrupt and rude, the latter can be avoided by asking one of the other more courteous receptionists if you require help with anything.If we ever visited Rome again we would definitely stay at this hotel again.

    Pretty much what I expected. Close to the Metro, staff were nice, bed was comfy, free wifi (although limited to one device - perhaps staff could give additional access if requested, I'm not sure). Criticisms would be: No kettle in the room - disastrous for a tea addict No iron in room - didn't really bother me but could be vital for those traveling on business Shower very cold Positive experience overall :)

    This is a great little place to stay in Rome. Close to Termini. Easy walking distance to many attractions. Helpful hotel staff that helped us get some guided tours set up with pick ups at the hotel. Good value for the prices. The room was small but functional. Nice sized bathroom. Tiny elevator!

    « Good value for money »

    Perfectly acceptable rooms for the price, comfy beds, cheesy music channel playing on arrival to the room - I would definitely recommend. We went for the room only option so I cannot comment on the food or other facilities but the staff were great and whoever was there when we checked in was great. I was there for a trip with three friends, I wouldn't say it's good for couples at all but ideal for a mates weekend. The city is so easy to get around that it was in a perfect location and not too far to Termini station at all (5 minute walk). Good local bakery and markets for some easy breakfast, you can pretty much walk around the whole city - the Metro line is a bit restricted but we only used it when we wanted to cover big distances quickly which was rare (do not bother buying the Rome travel passes!). Great hotel, thanks!

    « Well worth staying »

    For us this was a good location - close to Termini and a Subway line. As you leave the hotel turn right and at the end of the block on the left is an EXCELLENT express supermarket "PAM". Go back to the hotel road and keep walking west and you come across a good area for restaurants/bars (just beyond Yellow Hostel). Anyway, the hotel - welcoming reception. Very unusual in reflecting the Art Deco theme - attractive lounges with objet d'art. Lifts are small but efficient. Very clean bedroom and bathroom. Would have preferred hotter water but personal preference. Unusual but very pleasant smelling shower gel. Bed a little soft but good nights sleep. The maid did an excellent job.TV restricted English channels. Even the Art Deco radio worked and the door handles were art deco in style. Breakfast was enjoyable, usual "continental" varieties. Excellent coffee and very helpful and cheerful waiting staff. Would have preferred a variation on the hot meal but the scrambled egg and ham (actually better than trying to cook fatty English bacon) served every day for a week was bit tedious. Improvements need to be made with the WiFi connection. It was a HUGE disappointment. If the occupants of the next room were in and clearly Skyping their family (constantly) we had no signal at all and if we did we often had to sit near the door to get anything resembling a decent signal. Upon leaving we mentioned this the Manager (a very pleasant, approachable man). Usual excuses about Best Western improving this across all their hotels in the next few years (what use is that NOW and for people staying next week!) However, that was it as far as he was concerned - he clearly preferred positive comments to negative ones as he just left it to the Receptionist to make even further ridiculous excuses. In addition we had a code to last us 3 days and then had to get another one which only then lasted a day. We were there for a week why not give us a code for the whole week. Do we need a code for the TV, the water or electricity? The internet is no longer a secret aid to life it but too many an essential tool. In this day and age hotels need to wake up to getting rid of their contracts with companies who provide out dated services. We should be able to simply go to our rooms and the code (for our entire stay) is available on the desk. Finally we left earlier than we wanted too merely because they appear to have no luggage room. All week we noticed that cases were just left at the Reception desk. We did not feel this secure enough. Stay again - yes, provided reports of the internet accessibility improve.

    « What it says on the tin ! »

    We were very impressed by the themed decor and furnishings - very art deco and good quality pieces reminded me of my grandmother's best sitting room when I was a child. The location is very convenient for the Rome Terminus metro and bus stations whilst being far enough too be a little quieter than the main streets. Breakfast was buffet style with 2 basic cereals, fresh fruit etc on one table, an alcove area set up with croisants, danish and various 'pain au chocolat' etc and home made biscuits and cakes (an assortment of preserves are also available) and the main table set out with breads, cheeses and a hot selection of bacon and scrambled eggs. A reasonable selection but can be monotonous after a day or two. Our room was on the small side but again was matched to my specific specification for a room on the back well away from the lift - what we saw of other rooms when passing suggested they may have been bigger. There is only one lift from the ground floor but there is a second very small lift which goes from the first floor. Housekeeping seemed very on the ball with fresh towels daily and we even had our bed turned down whilst out one evening ! Reception was very efficient. WIFI throught but signal strength varied (best in reception area) - individual wifi passwords allocated by reception. There seemed to be several government buildings (embassies ?) in the area which were guarded by armed soldiers

    The location isn't that far from Termini station, but if we went back, I'd probably book at the Best Western that was right next to the station instead of this one. It was a 10 min walk, but seemed longer. The room was fine, small, but that's Europe in general. The breakfast was included and that was nice. Pretty filling with eggs, toast, cereal, yogurt, fruit, coffee, etc. We stayed on the 5th floor and walked up every day since the elevator is tiny and took longer than walking.

    « Great value, interesting decor, good breakfast »

    We just returned from a 6 night stay in Rome at the Hotel Artdeco. I chose the hotel based on the fact that I cashed in points for Best Western gift cards and this hotel was mid-priced of all the Best Westerns. It's not the most conveniently situated (30 minute walk to the "sites") but it is near the metro and bus stop. Pros: interesting decor, friendly staff, great breakfast buffet with interesting local fare, big room (we had a triple with one giant bed and one twin), big bath/shower. Cons: lukewarm water meant we couldn't enjoy the tub/shower, beds were not very comfortable, and although very friendly, the staff was not particularly knowledgeable or helpful in the way that I might expect from a concierge in a tourist area. Also the stairs/tiny elevators may be a con for some--my husband and son had to help carry down luggage for people who took the wrong elevator. All in all we were very, very happy with the accommodations and would recommend this hotel if your budget is mid-range.

    « Best people and best location! »

    We recently returned from Italy and I have lots of advice to offer. It's lots of random thoughts but I'm hopeful it will help people traveling (or thinking about traveling) to Rome. My first piece of advice to many Americans traveling to Italy is to leave your American standards at home. It's Italy, not America and they have different standards. That being said there are things Italian hotels and most other European hotels do better than us , such as provide a breakfast unlike anything you'll ever see in the states. We purchased a package through our local AAA office. The price included 7 nights in the Best Western Art Deco AND airfare. I don't want to share the actual price but it was less than $1600 per person. If you're a AAA member or Costco check out their package deals. Hotel recommendation: I highly recommend the Best Western Art Deco for a variety of reasons: 15 minute walk to Termini, Rome's main train station 10 minute walk to Via Castro Pretorio station A modern well-stocked grocery store, Pam, was a 5 minute walk The employees at this place are so helpful! The waiters and waitresses at breakfast are delightful! Nice clean rooms and some have king- size beds. Water wasn't hot but it was hot enough. Wifi worked better in some parts of hotel than others but that just wasn't that important to me. I don't know where to post other info about places we went and who we used so I'll just continue here. Recommended tours Dark Rome Tours has an excellent website that's easy to navigate. We did the 3 hour tour of Vatican Museum, Sistine chapel and St Peters. Well organized and our guide, Livia, was so informative. She always took time to answer questions and was a wealth of knowledge. If you want a 3 hour pizza making class for 70 euros per person go to loveforfood.net. We didn't have time to do this but Maite Perez Willis was very good at responding to emails. We took a 45 minute tour of the Colloseo, and used the website Coopculture.it. It's not easy to navigate but basically you can purchase the guided tour by English speaking person of the Colloseum at the ticket office there. You can also include a walk through the Palatine Hilland the Roman Forum. That website doesn't include a person through the other two locations but you can purchase an audio tour. Every single restaurant we frequented was fantastic and worth mentioning: Mama Angela's on Via Palestro 53 Osteria La Carbonara on Via Panisperna Trattoria Grotta Amatriciana Via Príncipe Amadeo , 1 That's about all I've got for now but hopefully this will help someone that is considering a trip to Rome.

    We had an extended weekend in rather quiet Rome during late November and stayed in this small, well-kept hotel for 3 nights. The location near Termini is handy, and it is not too far to walk around the Rome either. The breakfast was a nice surprise considering the room price: the pastries were tasty, fresh pineapple and other fruits even, scrambled eggs etc. Also, the reception was very attentive for example in borrowing wine glasses. The decor is a bit old with some wear and tear, but still very clean though. There is a handy supermarket and plenty of mini markets nearby as well as great Gelateria La Romana staying open late in the night. Try the restaurants in Monti area (we were pleasantlly surprised by La Carbonara) and the Terme di Diocleziano (with Henry Moore's exhibition) just opposite of Termini station for historical sightseeing. All in all, we had a great short holiday.

Check out the café right across the street with the green awning for amazing coffees!(and sooo cheap - 1.80 for an espresso and cappuccino, we did a double take at the bill) The area was really safe.

    Stayed here for a sarurday and sunday night stay. About a 10 minute walk from the castro pretorio metro station, felt safe walking in the evening with police and embassy security in the area. Room was nice with comfy bed and nice bathroom. Only drawback is the slow internet so had to go downstair in the lobby for the internet to be decent. Evening guy at front desk was friendly enough. Breakfast offered was great nice choices and great service. Another drawback is on sunday evening could not find restaurant that was open close by ended up walking to termini station for food about a 15 minute walk. Overall a comfortable stay.

    « Crappy service but decent value »

    Overall the hotel itself is pretty nice. The service does not match itàs physical appearance. Whoever the guy is that works the reception desk in the evening was awful and at times unapproachable based on his responses anytime anyone inquired about anything. The hotel recommendation we were given was awful and I believe only because it was in close proximity to the hotel. Any other recommendations could not be given because the reception guy stated he does not eat in Rome when asked about his favorite spot not in the neighborhood. I was told by him that the wi-fi does not work well because all of the guest was accessing it at once. The wi-fi connection was unattainable in our room from the second floor. I had a couple share with me they were on the first floor and could not connect. I tried connecting in the lobby but was repeatedly kicked off the network. The breakfast was ok, the menu for the restaurant attached to the hotel was not appealing.

    Hi this area of rome has four best westerns that i am aware of and i has stayed at all four. I would stay at any one of them again. For this hotel it is an easy walk to/from the main train terminal. There is also a grocery store along the walk. Rooms and bathrooms are typical - breakfast as well. Wi Fi is slow outside the lobby area. Safe neighborhood with several embassies and plenty of security but still very much a neighborhood. Also, a very short walk to Momma Angelos restaurant.

The staff goes out of its way to make sure you have what you need. Their breakfast and dinner meals are exceptional. The rooms are nice, with a large bed and large bathrooms with full tub. No complaints.

    « Good hotel close to main station »

    Great quiet location away from the tourist sites but 10 mins walk from the train station, and good restaurants within walking distance. Talking of restaurants, have to mention Culinaria which is 10 mins walk away and has some of the best food we've ever eaten. As is typical in many city centre hotels, the lifts are small and so can get busy, but the hotel is good value and close to metro stations as well as the main Termini. If you want to walk to the main tourist sites, it's about 35mins walk to places like the Pantheon or Colosseum, but you get to see more of Rome and there are always buses or metro if you don't want to walk.

    « We loved it here »

    We loved this hotel. Coming from the US we really appreciated the character that this hotel has. Our room was very clean and spacious. The staff were also extremely helpful. If you're looking for a nice place to stay around the Termini area I would recommend this hotel. It was about a 10-15 minute walk from either the Termini station (the main train station and metro station) and the Republicca metro station. From what I understand the Termini area is a bit more affordable than other areas though not quite as nice, but we had no problems. If we were to stay in the termini area again I would definitely stay here.

    « Excellent value, excellent location and very good staff. Avoid the 5th floor due to lift arrangement »

    Excellent value, excellent location and very good staff. The hotel is 10 minutes from the Termini and close to very nice restaurants. The front desk staff have excellent English and are full of knowledge. If you stay on the fifth floor the lifts are a little messy. You can climb the stairs to the first floor and take a small lift to the 5t floor, this is not for the claustrophobic. You can take a lift to the 4th floor and climb one set of stairs (the better option). The restaurant was excellent for breakfast.

    « Delightful Hotel in a Great Location »

    This hotel is in a great spot near Rome Termini. The facility is lovely with a nostalgic appeal. The rooms are comfortable, the staff are fairly helpful and the morning breakfast is rather nice. The room rates are very reasonable for the quality of the facility and the location. We wanted to spend four days in Rome during our Euro vacation. I am a Best Western Platinum member and generally find BWs to be of good quality in Europe. After seeing the location and the rate for this hotel, it seemed like a good bet. The proximity to Termini made it a very convenient base for sightseeing. The walking time to the station was less than ten minutes and there were also several restaurants that could be easily reached on foot. We arrived in this case by taxi. The driver had no problem finding the hotel. The curb appeal was nothing exceptional and the lobby area was smallish but quite nicely arranged. However, the impressive decor lived up to the name of the hotel. We were checked in quickly by a pleasant front desk clerk and given a room on the second level. The facility layout was interesting as the middle staircase was quite attractive. Our room was further to the back of the hotel, however, in what appeared to be a separate wing. On entry to our room, we were impressed with its spaciousness. We had three in our party including our daughter and we found the room to be quite adequate for our trio. The room was clean and the bathroom was quite functional. The view was nothing special but the air conditioning functioned well and the bed was comfortable. The noise level was also reasonable allowing us to get good sleep. The amenities were generally in order but the one issue regarding the hotel was that the internet did not function much of the time. It was very difficult to maintain connection suggesting the bandwidth was inadequate. This was the only major flaw, however. The morning breakfast featured a decent amount of seating in the dining room. There were many favorites available on the buffet including hot items such as eggs and meat. There were also plenty of cold items such as breads, cereals, deli meat, yogurt and fruit. The room rate was quite reasonable for the quality of the accommodations and proved to be the best feature of this establishment. Our rate was ?102.60 per night for four nights. This was about $115 USD with the exchange rate at the time. I felt this was a very good deal. Overall, this hotel provides a great base to see Rome. The location is terrific as it is within easy walking distance of Termini train station. There are also many attractions in Rome that can be reached on foot from the hotel. There are several nearby restaurants making the stay more convenient. The facility is rather lovely and nostalgic. The rooms are comfortable, the service is good and decently friendly and the morning breakfast is quite good. The room rate is more than reasonable considering the quality of the hotel, making this place a very good bargain. I would not hesitate to stay here again should the occasion arise.

    « Location and Value »

    I am a travel agent and pretty "picky" so when I found the BW Artdeco near Rome Termini I was thrilled. Traveling solo, a woman - location and safety was first priority and I felt the hotel delivered. I walked from the train station late in the afternoon and felt safe. I also ventured out for dinner later in the evening. My room was very well appointed and my only complaint was the lighting WAS SO DIM, I could not find anything in my suitcase. Breakfast was included in my room and had plenty to offer although staff was scarce if you needed something special. I would return and will recommend this to my clients.

    « Lovely hotel in the heart of Rome »

    Very clean and well appointed hotel. The front desk staff were a little slow on check in, but the beds were comfy and the complimentary breakfast appreciated. A close walk to many key areas...Rome termini and the Piazza Republico. Shopping and great restaurants in the area as well.

    « Lovely tranquil atmoshere, away from the crowds »

    The staff here are so helpful and welcoming, organising taxis, advice about sightseeing, directions, looking after bags, nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast set you up for the day. We had a large four poster bed and a jacuzzi in the bath (very relaxing after all the walking!). Quiet and safe location. 10 - 15 minute walk from the main station and a 30 minute walk to Trevi Fountain. But hop on hop off bus close by as is a metro station.
