    « Good price and pleasant hotel »

    I wouldn't say this is average but I really cannot rate it as very good. It would fall under a 'good' category, if TripAdvisor had one. For the price is it fine. The rooms are basic but clean and with all the required amenities. Breakfast is basic but nice and with a very pleasant view. Note there is no English TV, not even News. Not good for tourists or people on business. If your on a budget or on a short business trip only then I would recommend this hotel.

    « Happy Customers »

    Reviews for this hotel were generally ' positive ', in it's favor , so we were reasonably satisfied to book it for a six nights stay . There is always a doubt in your mind as to whether these reviews will match expectations . We need not have worried . Our experience was a positive one . It is true to say that the hotel is basic , but it is very clean. The rooms are a bit on the small side but the bedding is immaculate . The staff were very helpful and friendly . There is a very good continental style breakfast provided each morning . The Hotel is situated in a quiet residential area , so there are no problems with noise. We were only two blocks away from a tram stop which took us into the city center in less than ten minutes . It could not be easier . Transport costs were very cheap { 7 Euros each } and we were able to buy a day ticket in the News Kiosk beside the tram stop. You can use this ticket all day on the buses , trams , and on the underground. We visited all the top attractions , so we were quite tired each Evening when we returned to the hotel . Hard to get yourself up and going to go back into Town again . No worries . The local restaurants were of a high standard and provided very good value for money . About 50 Euro on average for a three course meal with a bottle of house wine . The restaurants in the center of the City are generally more expensive depending on location . We paid 35 Euro service charge , so look out for that before you dine . Overall we were happy with our Hotel . The location is excellent . We have no problem recommending it to anyone.

    Hotel is situated close to the Foro Italico and also walking distance to the city center. The area is very nice and less busy, it is very good location. Hotel is very nice and very clean, our room was renovated with great and big bathroom on the top floor. The staff was extremely helpful during our stay and also before in short time they answered all my questions and requests. we really enjoyed the breakfast - a lot of choices,great taste and nice view from the terrace.. I really recommend this hotel and for sure we will choose it again .

    « Our anniversary trip »

    Visited rome for 4 days at the end of our month long trip. Next time i would do a little longer as it felt rushed...so much to see!!! We used our airmiles for this hotel and was pleasantly surprised. Room small but we only really slept there so not really a big deal. Nice bathroom, bed comfortable, and cute narrow deck. A little noisy on main street but so tired at the end of a long day so didnt really matter...the breakfast was typical of italy, nice to start the day off with..Nice view from breakfast area of the vatican. Nice , reasonable restaurant 1 block behind hotel, front desk directed us there and we were very happy with food!! Went back next evening, loaded with people..if u dont get there early may need a reservation...i would recomend this hotel.

    « Good hotel, great staff, pleasant amenities. »

    I stayed two nights on each end of a tour in September. The rooms were small but adequate and clean and pleasant. The staff were among the most professional, helpful people I have met in all my travels over the years. My room was booked as part of a tour, but I have since learned that if you book through the hotel website, you can specify one of the bigger rooms if you wish (& pay a little more). There is quite a difference between the standard and premium rooms. It is close to the train stops and surrounded by lots of eating places, fresh food shops and bars.

    « Decent Hotel Near Everything in Rome »

    Very decent hotel that is just a few minutes walk to Rome's mass transit. The rooms and the entire hotel are very clean and well maintained. The breakfast that was provided was the best breakfast during my family's multiple week trip in Italy during October 2016 and offered a great variety. If you are staying on an upper floor be prepared to walk the stairs as there is only one very small elevator that is slower than a person walking the stairs. The elevator is only able to support two adults and two bags it is that small and weight restricted. During our stay it was abnormally hot so we asked the front desk about air conditioning since our room was facing the courtyard and had absolutely no breeze. They said it was turned on but we were not even able to get a trickle of an airflow out of the unit during our stay. The shower in our room was also extremely small (I'm not a large person by any means) to the point that I had to open the door to be able to soap up before doing a small pivot to rinse. Overall, great staff, great location, decent rooms, and good breakfast. I would recommend his place to stay if you will be spending a majority of your time out and about and just want a room to crash at night. I would not recommend this place for children or people that are not easily able to walk up and down stairs.

    « Will be back for sure »

    Very pleasant staff and very nice hotel. You can go there with no worries. Not really walking distance to main attractions, but still close. I will for sure choose to stay at this hotel again. I also recommend it to anybody else. We were very happy and the styling of it is really nice.

    « A decent little hotel »

    This hotel is ideally positioned within Rome, not too far out from the city centre but not too close to all the tourist hotspots. The terrace that breakfast is served on also has a good view over the city.

    « Cozy is one way to describe it.... »

    The other would be coffin with a TV. The shower is also super tiny. You have to squeeze through the door to get in and have barely enough room to maneuver. The "highlight" of my stay was the torrential down pour of water that landed on the wooden stool that is supposed to be a desk (from an AC unit strategically placed in the ceiling above). Thankfully, I had removed my computer from the desk mere seconds before this happened.

    Very friendly staff Rooms clean and modern, not very big, but very sufficient, also with daily fresh and free water and some soda on room Breakfast very good and with magnificient view of city A little bit out of centre, but easily to reach with tram. Only the wifi connection could be little bit stronger.... but that is just small detail

    « Superb! »

    Everything about this hotel exudes comfort and hospitality. From the moment wet arrived, check in was easy and seamless. The hotel is beautiful and classy. I loved the triangle shaped staircase. The room was clean and cozy. The bathroom was appropriately sized. It fit a stand alone shower with perfect water pressure. The hotel staff was pleasant and graciously willing to help. We requested a late check out and they accommodated us happily. We asked for recommendations on where to have dinner and was directed to a nice restaurant within walking distance. The front desk clerk gave us a map of Rome that I found to be extremly useful. They even assisted with contacting a taxi for us. Breakfast in the morning was absolutely beautful. There was a nice variety of bread, cheese, fruit, cereal and meat. There was plenty of space for dining. The balcony tables were occupied but the with the windows open you could still see the view. All in all, we were very comfortable at this hotel and will reserve there again.

    « Comfortable and not expensive stay »

    We have stayed in this hotel for 4 nights and overall experience was very good. Clean modern rooms, looked after very well, excellent conditioning system in hot summer. Few downsides was: no bar, no room service, poor wi-fi connection, breakfast room a bit too small. Location is excellent and short walking distance to Spanga for Spanish stairs etc... (of course if 15 min walk is considered long walk). The highlight of the stay was reception host Valentina. Extremely smiley, friendly and very helpful, overall a pleasure to talk to! I wish all hotels would have a front person like her:)

    « Excellent hotel option while visiting Rome! »

    This is a great 3* hotel. We stayed in triple room. Beds are comfortable, we slept like babies. Mini bar was free of charge, breakfast excellent with enough options to choose from in nice sunny space on the 5th floor. Great staff. Location is great - little away from "hot" touristic areas but that gives you a chance to explore more of local food options with better prices and it is less crowded. Tram stop no 2 is very close and after a few stops you are next to Piazza del Popolo (Flaminio station) and from there you can explore many attractions by foot. For 12.5 Eur you have 48 hours of public transport (children bellow 10 use public transport for free). If you take tram no 2 to other direction and drive few stops (up to the last stop Mancini), you are a few steps away from best ice cream in the world - Neve di Latte. Remark for tourists that expect more from hotel and are ready to pay more: view from our room was not exisiting (window faces inner backyard), bathroom is clean but not very modern and terrace in breakfast room is very small, hardly fits 2 at the table, so guests mostly eat in breakfast room. I highly recommend this hotel as budget comfortable option while visiting Rome as a tourist. Location is fantastic if you are OK to use public transport which is very inexpensive and convenient in Rome.

    Spent two nights in this hotel and found the room to be clean with a comfortable bed and breakfast although nothing fantastic was adequate. The hotel is situated two minutes from the tram and within easy access to all the sight seeing spots around Rome

    « Nice hotel »

    My husband and I stayed at this hotel a few weeks ago. Although our room was small, we had our own bathroom and the hotel room was very clean with modern furniture. The hotel is away from the hustle and bustle- which is nice because we were able to find several authentic Italian restaurants nearby that were reasonably priced. With that being said, the location did make it hard to walk to some of the attractions/ squares we wanted to see, but taking a taxi was easy and inexpensive. The staff at this hotel are very friendly and helpful. The complimentary breakfast had a lot of options to chose from.

    We asked for a room with baby cot and you gave us the smallest room ever that a stroller cannot fit in it We even infirmed u we r celebrating anniversary.

    « Away from the crowds! »

    We stayed here a few times now! Love the fact it's away from the hustle and bustle - can be a little noisy if you sleep with the windows open! Breakfast is fresh and coffee is good. Staff are polite and very helpful - giving suggestions for restaurants and places to visit on your day out. The rooms were cleaned daily - the only gripe we had was the glass shower screen on the bath leaked terribly causing the floor to be very slippery and dangerous! Overall this hotel is above average in all areas as far as we are concerned. Thanks.

    « Reasonable Alternative »

    Its tough trying to find a hotel in Rome. The nature is local and independent so although it gives an opportunity to try the Roman hospitality offering, it also poses a challenge for those looking for standard requirements. Being a Best Western means that this independent hotel has basics such as safe deposit box and security cameras, this kind of thing helps for me. What is good however is that it is in fact a beautiful property with marble flooring. Not in the center but not faraway at all. Definitely a decent choice.

    « It could be better »

    I had a small room, clean but with a view on the interior patio so the room was very dark even during sunny day. There was some problem with my magnetic key card which staff couldn't overcome so I ended with three different typical keys. The dining room offers breakfast on the tiny balcony, too tiny in my opinion. The chairs were old and creaky. Coffee was unacceptable, weak and tasteless. The localization is not so bad but definitely not in the city centre.

    « Not Handicap Accessible as Advertised. »

    My parents booked a handicap/wheelchair room through booking.com for April 3-6, 2016. This hotel is ONLY wheelchair accessable at the front door. Not anywhere else in the hotel. There are six steps up to the elevator that had a ramp over it but it was so steep that his wheelchair was tipping backwards. The room had no rails or handicap access in the restroom. False advertising regarding handicap accessibility. When my parents talked to the manager, he was rude and did nothing to assist my parents. My dad was stuck in the room for those two days.

    « Birthday treat »

    Brilliant visit to rome. Hotel is tucked out the way so it's quiet. Very near the tram route so easy to access anywhere you want to go. Staff were very friendly and accommodating. The restaurant staff helped us with travel plans. Only food served is breakfast but plenty of choice and the restaurant is accessible for coffee all day. Would definitely go back.

    « Away from the maddening crowds »

    Excellent place to start exploring all the major sites of Rome. Quiet environment to come back to at the end of the day. Easy access to walk, take a tram or metro. Restaurants, local shops, gym, parks and local life a bonus in appreciating the daily life of Romans.

    « Walls made out of paper! »

    Impossible to sleep, there was almost no noise cancellation towards the busy road outside. Not only that, you could hear EVERYTHING the neighbors in the rooms on both sides were doing. This includes talking, laughing, opening a soda, burping and having sex. Breakfast was poor as well.

    « A faultless stay »

    We came for the Rugby. The hotel is excellently situated for the Stadio Olimpico. There were plenty of restaurants locally. Public transport into the centre of Rome was easy, and relatively cheap. We had two rooms, One was a very spacious, the other one wasn't so. But they were both clean and tidy and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was a feast - fresh fruit, cold meats, cheese, eggs, yoghurts, four sorts of croissants, cakes and various other things. We arrived promptly for breakfast on the Sunday and the croissants were still warm! The hotel is part of an old building, and the staircase is lovely. We would stay there again.

    Thank you to all of the team for looking after our group of 10. We arrived on Saturday lunchtime for the rugby and were able to check in to our rooms earlier than our 2pm check-in. Again we were delighted to have access to a room after a very wet day in Rome before our flight home. Great hospitality - thank you

    This hotel is clean and comfortable and the breakfast room has a good view over the river. Rooms are on the small side but modern and have all you need. The hotel has no restaurant but this is Rome and everyone eats out. Staff were friendly and helpful. I would have liked some public rooms but I found none apart from the lobby.

    « Great Few Days and Rugby Too! »

    The hotel is clean and comfortable. The rooms were nicely finished with good facilities. A mini-bar of free soft drinks, water and snacks was replenished every day. The breakfast on floor 5 was self-service continental style and was good with plaenty of bread, pastries, coffee, juice etc. The staff were all friendly and helpful. We chose this hotel for its proximity to the Stadio Olympico, where the rugby international was held between Italy and Engalnd. The location was perfect for this venue as it was a 20-25 minute walk away, which took the stress out of finding our way to the Stadium on match day. To get to "downtown" Rome, you can catch the tram from the platform a short walk from the hotel or get a taxi. All-in-all a very pleasant hotel.

    « To Rome for one night to walk and see xmas lights. »

    We have stayed at this hotel in the past and this time were disappointed. Seems like since they have become affiliated with Best Western the bottom line is king. The reception was cordial, the location is great, but the room left much to be desired. It was very small even though we had selected a larger room looking out over the city. But what really got us was (1) the pillows bore an uncanny resemblance to sacks of cement, making it hard to get comfortable, much less the sore ears, and (2) only vaguely warm water in the shower!!! Breakfast room is too small but breakfast is ok. Not worth 120 euros. Find a nice B&B in trastevere.

    « Nice view a good value for Money »

    Nice building, very decent rooms and nice bathrooms, recently renovated with taste. The breakfast rooms / terrace offers a fantastic view over the Tiber and Rome skyline. The is no restaurant and unfortunately no bar to hang out late night (for a last drink or tea/coffee).

    « Perfect for couples on a romantic break »

    I highly recommend this place for twenty-somethings looking for a clean, secure place to reside when not discovering the truly awesome city of Rome. The staff are ridiculously polite and more than happy to help (We miss you Giancarlo!). The location is just out of the central city but if you don't mind a 10 minute walk it's fine. Highly recommend checking out Piazza del Popolo during the day (amazing shops and city atmosphere), and Trastevere at night (romance/pizza!).

    « Perfect choice for travelers to Rome. »

    Perfect location, nice neighborhood, clean rooms. Close to tram and then Metro Flaminio, quick access to Olimpico. Overall 5/5 for 3 stars hotel. Actually should be 4*. If breakfast can be improved the hotel will be top.

    « Nice Hotel Pick your room. »

    Hotel Astrid is a well intended place. Nice staff. Location is not central but you can take the 2 line to Flammina, (Piazza del Popolo} which is a Metro stop and you are off to the races. The district is residential but has decent restaurants and grocery stores. Worst cab ride is 15 Euros from remote parts of Rome. Biggest Caveat is Rome choice smallest room offers view of the Tiber. Really offers a noisy room over a 4 lane highway. Really noisy all night long with motorcycles and car traffic. They have better.Book a courtyard room. Breakfast is good but so so by Rome standards. No delightful extras.

    Stayed here so we could visit Vatican City, and Colosseum one day, and other sites the next. Glad this was close to Vatican as it saved time, Staff here was very helpful, answered all our questions, spoke good English. Very clean room and quaint. Shower was small but spotless. Pleaseant surprise!

    « Mini break »

    We were pleased with the cleanliness of the hotel and all the staff were polite and helpful especially the lady who served breakfast. The hotel is located on the tram line into the city centre which was easy and cheap to use. However, when you get off the tram you have to walk passed a park where there are lots of rough sleepers which was unnerving.

    « Good Value for money »

    A fine a tourist hotel located near to one of the tram routes in Rome, which gives you frequently connections to the subway system. The breakfast was very good, with a fine selection, and located on the fifth floor with a view. The first night we had some issues with a none working A/C, after a talk with the reception the next day it turned out that it is was turn off due to not high outside temperatures, but as our room was very hot and as open windows did not help, the a/c was turned on again.

    « Wonderful! »

    We got a great deal on the hotel! Very nice, clean and budget friendly. Everyone at desk was very friendly and helpful. They provided us with great advice on the sites we should visit and directions on how to get there. Continental breakfast every morning was good too. This hotel is outside of they city center, so it did cost us a little more to get there by taxi. But talk to your taxi driver and if you book the same car service on your way back to the airport, they will give you a discount (make sure you ask if they don't mention a discount!) It was a 15 minute walk to Piazza Del Popolo, but there is also a bus that is a two minute walk from the hotel that will take you to Piazza Del Popolo (buy bus tickets at the newspaper stand or tobacco shop). The metro is a 15 minute walk as well. We also booked a day tour to Pompeii through Viator and we left from Piazza Del Popolo, which worked out really well for us. I would definitely stay here again!

    « Room was ok, bathroom had a slightly weird smell »

    Positive: -staff were always friendly and helpful: both reception and breakfast staff. Reception responded to several emails very promptly -room was clean -I enjoyed the breakfast room especially the terrace and being able to have breakfast in the sun - didn't have any problems with noise as other people seem to have had Negatives: -location: there is nothing in the neigbourhood except the MAXXI. Located along river so you could go for a run but there is really not much in terms of sights or restaurants. And yes there is the tram 2 as well as buses but it is just a bit of a pain to have to venture out for everything. Taking the tram to Piazza Del Popolo adds 15 minutes to every journey - as Ive said the room was okay and clean but my bathroom had a slightly strange smell -- I suspect it's mildew -- the hotel is not new and the ventilation might not be so good. It wasn't so awful and I was able to tolerate it--- I couldn't be bothered to complain to be honest-- perhaps if I did complain I might have been given another room-- the staff were quite nice after all-- but this smell did detract from my overall experience quite significantly. A hotel bathroom isn't supposed to smell funny.

    « Good hotel near the Spanish steps. »

    Good value hotel close to the piazza del popolo and the Spanish steps. Helpful staff, nice room, good breakfast room with a view of the Tiber river and St Paul's dome. Excellent pizza around the corner and a nice trattoria for dinner on the same street. Good public transportation nearby.

    « For the price not overly impressed »

    This is actually my second time staying here and there has been about 10yrs in between stays, although it is still a good option for a no thrills hotel near enough to central Rome it is dated and could be better. I found the rooms tired and in need of attention and also the "city view" is more of a view of the next building with the Vatican in the far far distance which is very noisy at night even with the shutters closed. Breakfast is okay but simple and the dining area is cramped and not very inspiring. It is clean and has everything you need but more suited if you are looking for somewhere just to sleep because it has basically no facilities and located on the 4th floor of a mixed use building so it is not stand alone, this is not uncommon in Italy though. I think for a Best Western it could be much better, it isn't really walking distance from the Centre but is probably quieter and is in a very safe area of town just off Flaminia, though there isn't much around as far as food and drinks either, especially late at night or on Sundays. I would probably try some other options in future more central as I was a tourist traveling with girlfriend.

    « Great place to stay in Rome »

    We stayed here for 2 nights for a sightseeing weekend in Rome. The hotel looks very attractive from the outside with classical Roman architecture and it overlooks the river with the dome of St Peters basilica in the near distance. the hotel was probably larger in the past and parts of the building now have other uses but these are contained and unobtrusive. Our room was small and looked onto an inner area with windows opposite but at an angle and we didn't feel overlooked. It was extremely hot so we kept the shutters closed and the air conditioning worked well meaning that after a hot day exploring Rome we came back to a lovely cool shady room. The free mini bar with soft drinks and snacks was also very welcome. The breakfast room on the 5th floor has a lovely view and although there are no services provided up there at night it is worth going up to see the view over the city at night. The hotel staircase is also interesting being triangular and Art Deco in design. The hotel is extremely clean and well presented and all the staff are very friendly and helpful, speaking very good English. Marie, on reception was especially helpful. The hotel is situated away from the hustle of central Rome but local transport is good. A short walk around the corner is a bus stop which takes you a few stops to Flaminio where you'll find the nearest metro station and it is easy to find your way around from there. You can buy 24hr, 3 or 7 day tickets which can be used on all public transport from the paper shop kiosk between the hotel and the bus stop. The bus runs every 15 mins. If we return to Rome we would definitely stay here again.
