    « Excellent accommodation - highly recommended! »

    We are currently staying in this great little hotel and we are very impressed. Conveniently located within a few minutes' walk of the Termini train and metro station, it has everything we want - friendly, helpful staff, excellent buffet breakfast, super quiet room, comfortable bed, piping hot shower, free wifi, complimentary toiletries, in-room tea making facilities and personal safe. Highly recommended.

    « Felt really safe and hotel manager was lovely »

    I was on my own and had arrived from England, my room was ready at 12pm so I'm really grateful as I left the U.K. at 6am so needed somewhere to have a rest. The hotel manager was lovely and really helpful. They put me in a quiet room which I asked for in advance. I got room service of club sandwich and chips and a pizza as I had a gift card to use up. Both where lovely and really enjoyed them. Was only €10 each so when you think of the prices in Rome I thought this was very good value for room service.

    Great stay. Perfect location in regards to proximity to Termini train station. Breakfast was not included, but it was cheap and easily added to the bill. My room was clean. The shower was amazing and nice separate tub. I stayed in my room for 3 days, the perfect size for just one person, plenty of room for luggage. The staff was pleasant. Great location to just hop on the Metro and sight see within in Rome. If I go to Rome, I'd definitely stay here again!

    We were very happy with this hotel. Spacious clean room with AC and a comfortable bed. Breakfast and dinner were delicious. We did not use Manet. We had no time to figure it out. Good idea, though. Good service.

    The staff at the hotel are the friendliest most helpful I have encountered. The hotel is ultra modern and located near major attractions and museums. Hop on hop off buses are right in front of the building as well as taxis and shuttle buses. The restaurant is acceptable and reasonably priced. A great place to stay in Rome.

    The Hotel Santina was awesome! Loved that they provided a smart phone for us to use. Definitely helped us get to and from our hotel easily! We would stay at the Santina again if we ever make it back to Rome!

    « photos can be misleading. average hotel room »

    The photos of the hotel rooms in their website looks immaculate but it wasn't the case when I got in the actual room. The room was spacious enough, bed was comfortable, however, the floor carpet is starting to wear out. this makes me feel that the floor isn't that clean? the bedroom lights weren't too bright, I had to keep opening the curtains to get more light. there is only hand held shower in the tub. did not like the tub in particular as it looked really old. it was like a dark brown stone finish kind of material that at one point I thought it looked rusty. overall, the rooms definitely look a bit outdated. Location wise, it is very close to Roma Termini. The hotel staff was very nice I must admit.

    « Average hotel »

    The good: - Room is extremely small, so the air conditioning works pretty well - Close to train and metro stations - Friendly, informative staff - Affordable breakfast(5€) - Android phone in room that you can take around Rome with you - Has a safe - Decent minibar prices - Hop on bus tours stop right outside - You can change the lighting under the bed to yellow, green, red and blue (if you're into that sort of thing...) The bad: - Possibly the smallest room I've ever been in. Huge desk which I didn't find useful takes up a lot of space that would be better left empty (strictly for space). - Shower is very small and leaks from the bottom into the bathroom, creating a puddle - Bathroom is lit like a back alley in Rome (used the mirror in the main room to shave) - Terrible wifi: very slow, disconnects constantly I guess you get what you pay for, so it's hard to compare against other hotels in the same price-range in Rome without staying in those. Just comparing it to other hotels at a similar price-point in comparable tourist cities.

    Close to the main station. 30 mins from the airport. Bus stop was infront of the hotel. Hop on Hop off as well. Excellent staff. Very good service. Food was very nice. room was clean and tidy with good space. very comfortable. Would love to go back.

    Wonderful hotel and great staff. I would highly recommend the hotel. Not only were they helpful at check-in, they were helpful throughout the trip. The room was very spacious for Rome standards. I stayed in a suite with my mother and teenage daughter. It was fantastic!

    Right next to Termini station and within comfortable walking distance of sights, bars and shops. Room was very clean and staff were friendly. Only small niggle was they asked for a £50 euro deposit to borrow a hairdryer from reception which I thought was a bit excessive but it was returned with no problem.

    « Visiting Rome »

    This hotel is in a great location. The hop on hop off bus stops across the road and there are lots of restaurants and interesting places nearby. The hotel provide mobiles with sat nav to guests and this makes it very easy to locate sites and to know how long it takes to walk there. Very helpful staff and great breakfast. The only drawback is that there is no proper bar in the hotel. Well worth a visit.

    Stayed for 3 nights to watch 6 nations and sightsee. Great location about 20mins to Colloseum, same to Spanish steps. Room v comfortable, breakfast choice plentiful. Right next door to Termini station so good for travelling elsewhere or underground.

    « Great location for sightseeing »

    Myself and my husband stayed here for 2 nights during our honeymoon around Italy. We found the hotel to be clean and tidy and the staff helpful and friendly. The breakfast was good value and we also ate in the restaurant one night and found the food to be well presented and nice.... But nothing special. Our room looked out onto the main road which did mean it was noisy all night. Being English we needed more milk for our drinks in the room and the hotel were happy to oblige A big advantage for us was the sightseeing tour bus stopped right outside the hotel, this was great for us because after walking 10 miles around Rome we could not walk anymore and were glad to get off right outside hotel. All in all this is a good and comfortable hotel with easy reach to all the sights of rome .

    « A Decent All- Round Hotel »

    We stayed for 3 nights as part of a Rugby Package. The location is good and accessible by foot to most of the tourist attractions. Service was great, the room and bed comfortable and the breakfast reasonable but lacking in finesse (diluting orange juice, not fresh; poor toaster).

    « The honeymoon is over when....... »

    you're in the bathroom having a shave and the wife walks in to take a dump! If it's going to happen anywhere then this is the place. A series of glass walls and sliding doors ensures zero privacy and full acoustics. There are other interior design gaffes but overall our clean room was good. The strength of this hotel lies in the excellent customer service, generous public spaces, good elevators, ease of transition from street to lobby and proximity to train station.

    « Trip to watch Italy v Scotland Rugby match »

    Fun weekend for the rugby. Staff at the hotel made us very welcome. Bedroom and en-suite are modern, clean and have everything you need. Breakfast is standard continental but there is plenty to choose from. Metro just round the corner for travelling to the sights. Taxis are not expensive apart from coming back after the rugby when we were quoted 10 euros per person. We would definately stay again.

    « Nice location »

    I loved this hotel very nice location close to the train station and subway easy to find if you like to walk you can get to all the main attractions in ten to twenty min or you can take the metro and be there with less walking but Rome should be explored by feet. The rooms were a bit small but I used them to sleep at night breakfast was good and nicely priced at five euros would definitely stay there especially if I was planning on a euro tour by train.

    « should be better »

    I spent here 1 day and frankly was enough. the main problem was the bed's mattress...old/broken because the springs were really too soft. Another problem the TV..i don't know but to change channel need every time 5-10 seconds. Anyway...good location, clean and beside the hotel there is a parking for the car.

    « First visit to Rome, great choice of Hotel! »

    We stayed 5-8 March, room 807. From the moment we arrived we felt comfortable and welcome. All the reception staff were very helpful, and meeting Patricia (apologies if the spelling is incorrect) in the restaurant at breakfast was a delight. She was very welcoming and greeted us warmly. Our room was very well appointed, comfortable bed, linen and towels refreshed daily, ample toiletries and good tea and coffee making facilities. The location is perfect for Termini station, the tour bus,the buses to the airport and for various tourist attractions. We really enjoyed our stay at the Royal Santina and thank the staff once again for a pleasurable stay.

    « Excellent stay »

    We love BW Royal Santina. The location is excellent, with the train station / bus terminal / taxi rank / airport shuttles right on the front door, and lots of sights close by. The staff is among the friendliest, we know a lot of them by name and it is a pleasure to see them every time we're back - it also says something that the staff is not constantly changed with underpaid interns. We feel at home when we stay at RS. The breakfast is good, and very well priced for what is on offer - a varied mix of hot and cold dishes, with gluten intolerant people in mind, as well as babies and vegetarians. We have never had lunch or dinner because usually we're out and about. The rooms might not be the biggest in Rome but they are definetely comfortable, clean and tidy, and functional. We got a surprise upgrade on our last stay which made our stay that much more special. The gym is not big but it has enough machines so as not to fill up quickly. Last note, we love the shower!! The ceiling head has a very soothing spray which we always make the most of. Kee it up! We will definetely recommend the estabilishment to our friends and family.

    Modern hotel with superb bathroom amenities.Separate shower and commode with artistic mood lighting in the glass walls.Even on a very busy street our room was pleasantly quiet and comfortable.Well located so as to get to attractions.Taxis came frequently and were relatively inexpensive.Restaurant food very good but buffet breakfast was a little disjointed.Otherwise I would still choose this hotel and location

    « Small in every way »

    The rooms were small. The elevators were small. And I'm not talking small like everything in Europe. I'm talking smaller than that. I felt claustrophobic. I would not stay here again. And they had not English channels on their TV. Not cool when you want to unwind after a day of exploring.

    « Excellent location »

    Stayed at this hotel a few times when visiting Rome. Its location is extremely convenient. It is next to the main train station, Rome Termini, so it is easy to reach here from the airport by Leonardo Express and to take trains to other places in Italy. It is also an easy walk to several sights in Rome. The breakfast, though not included in the price, is at nominal rates and is quite elaborate. The rooms are comfortable and well maintained. Free Wi Fi is available. There are plenty of good restaurants near by. It is not very expensive or luxurious. But it is a nice hotel for a stay in Rome.

    « Good hotel in a number of respects »

    We stayed at the Royal Santina as part of a package to see the Italy v England 6 Nations rugby match. The hotel is very well located for some things but inconvenient for others. It is very close to the main train terminus in Rome and therefore has excellent transport links to all other parts of Italy, and busses and metro in Rome. We opted for private transfers to and from the airport which took about 40 minutes. Those in our party that opted for the shuttle bus seemed to take considerably longer. Convenient though it is for transport elsewhere the hotel is not especially well situated for access to the major sights and sites of the city which are distributed around other areas of Rome. The one major exception is the excellent Museo Nazionale Romano at Palazzo Massimo alle Terme, about 5 minutes walk away. Being near the station there are many inexpensive eating and drinking options in nearby streets, all of which seem to offer very similar fare. More upmarket eateries are less common and you will probably have to travel further to find them. The hotel has the amenities you would expect from a four star establishment. The bar area was a little small but adequate and served a good range of drinks and food. The restaurant was fine for breakfast, which was fresh, plentiful and varied, but probably a bit antiseptic for evening meals. We did not choose to eat there so cannot comment on the food although others seemed to enjoy it. Our room was on the top (8th) floor which has the disadvantage of being served by only one lift. The room was adequate but slightly on the small side. The Royal Santina sells itself on its ?funky? decor and furnishing as well as its high tech approach. This enables guests to alter the colour of secondary lighting around the furniture in the room to suit their mood. The hotel also provides a free smart phone to access local and international calls, internet services and hotel services. I am not the most tech savvy person in the world but I did use the mood lighting, which entertained me for a couple of minutes. I also tried the smartphone but herein was the key problem with it - others may be much better at operating these things but I tried twice without managing to make it function properly. There was then no way I was wasting any more precious time on it and I reverted to my own iPhone and iPad instead (WiFi in the hotel is free, which is good). The other problem with the room was that the air conditioning was not working. We were advised by the management that there was a fault with the aircon on our floor and we should open the window to cool the room. Interestingly this contradicted the environmental advice that came with the room. Furnishings and decor were quite new and reflected the design of the rest of the hotel. Whilst looking good storage space for clothes was quite limited, especially drawer space. Overall as far as the rooms go they are somewhat over designed and maybe they need to ensure the basics work before introducing any more tech or gadgets. Staff were generally very friendly and helpful. Reception organised us an early check in when we arrived before the main party, cleaners were friendly and helpful as were the bar staff and breakfast crew. The only issue we had was with one of the reception staff one night who gave us completely inaccurate information regarding the possibility of a delayed check out on our final day (which was arranged for us the next morning). Overall there was little wrong with the hotel and it served its purpose for us perfectly adequately.

    « Great position close to railway/metro station »

    A very convenient hotel in Rome. A short stroll to railway station and metro. Tourist buses stop close by. The hotel provides an excellent breakfast, although we did not sample the dinner menu as we eat at restaurants locally. Bedroom was very clean and of a reasonable size.

    With Gullivers travel tour company chose the BW Royal Santina as it looked very nice online. Not disappointed everyone and everything was just as expected from a 4 star hotel. The staff were all very friendly and efficient The breakfast was very tasty and plentiful The location is brilliant lots of restaurants and bars within 5 minutes walk Termini station just around the corner Beds very comfortable and the room very nice.

    « Convenient hotel near Roma Termini railways station »

    It is the second time I stayed in this hotel. I took a special price offer (99 € +11 € for breakfast). The hotel is in front of the Roma Termini railway station. Very convenient for traveler and with many restaurant in the proximity. The receptionists has been very cold (but professional). The room was at 7th floor, on the internal yard, quiet, spacious and clean, as the bathroom. The breakfast, even with a large selection of food was, on my opinion, not correctly managed by the servers: lack of food and hosts waiting for refilling while servers spending time talking each other. I feel to suggest this hotel just when there are special prices.

    « Nice »

    This is a decent hotel across from the main train station and bus transport center. But it's main appeal is to tour groups, mainly from Asia and North America. It's a bit of hike from here to most of the sites at the farther reaches of central Rome. But for euro 1.50 you can take the nearby 40 or 64 buses to close to most any of the major sites and venues. The hotel has 8 floors and more than one elevator, though interior space inside any one of them can be real tight. I found housekeeping to be good, but they clean the check out rooms first, so you're likely not to get handled until later in the day. The bath area was well supplied with toiletries and towels. There was an honors fridge in my room and also a coffee maker. The breakfast bar offered small hot chocolate packets, so I was able to make my own in-room mochas. Wi-Fi is available and, if you need to print (or maybe get faster speed), you can use the lobby computer. There's a comfy sitting area in the lobby adjoining the bar. And the breakfast buffet space is turned into a restaurant at later hours. One airport bus terminal is directly across the street. So it's quite a good location for coming from and going to either airport. Security is aggressive here. If you are expecting visitors to your room, you will want to come down and meet them at the main door. If you are driving, fee parking is available.

    « Good Hotel near Termini Staion »

    On arrival the hotel was very busy, lots of suits in the lobby and in and out of the hotel, I think there might of been a conference on or some sort of business meeting, quite irrelevant to any review but I thought I would mention it anyway, we arrived around 11am and our room wasn't ready, as there was no point in wasting valuable time we left our bags in the secure luggage room in the hotel. We only arrived back late evening, Room was on the 6th floor fairly sized and very nicely decorated, comfortable bed and pillows and nice heating system, there is a like a light theme throughout the room it's supposed to help with your mood, it can be switched off though. The shower and WC all good ! Wifi had a very strong signal and worked well !Breakfast you pay for separately and wasn't that good, don't get me room it wasn't bad either, it's more a take it or leave it situation, I didn't care much for it so I left it and on the last 2 days just went elsewhere. There is a gym available, which I didnt use so can't comment on it. Overall nice stay near the station which is handy. Lots of nice resturantes in the area for dinner specially on the streets behind the hotel. Would stay again !

    « Location and convenience »

    The hotel was very clean and secure. The room was wonderfully decorated and very well designed. The hotel staff were helpful with each tasked when we asked. The hotel was located in a very convenient area to get around Rome. The train terminal was about a block from hotel and the buses to and from the airports loaded right across the street. The only slight negatives were the noise from the street. If your staying on the Train terminal side of the hotel, it can get a little noisy from so much activity on the street right next to the train terminal. That's expected though since this is the main terminal for Rome. The other negative was the bed was a little firmer than my wife and I like, but of course that's a personal preference and some people may like it that way.

    « Looking for a great place to stay by the Rome Termini Central Railway Station.? »

    The Best Western Royal Santina Hotel is located at 22 via Marsala and in my opinion is the ideal place to bed down. Located within an easy 5 minute walk from the Termini Station to this hotel. ( this hotel was recommended by a close friend of mine that had check many hotels around this area.). I booked well ahead at a rate of 148 Euro's per night. This hotel is the perfect place to stay if you want to be near the train, bus and metro system. ( all in one)! Ideal for catching a cruise ship leaving the port of Civitavecchia ( taking the non stop train from Termini station will take you 1 hour train ride and cost you 5 Euro's. other wise the regional trains will make a number of stops and will take 1 hour and 22 minutes. An easy walk from the train station to the port entrance will take about 20 minutes or less. You can catch the FREE Port Shuttle bus to your ship just inside the entrance to the port.Also you can catch a cab from the train station to your ship as well. Because we were traveling with 2 other couples and luggage ,,we decided to forget about the train and had the hotel send us a private vehicle which cost us 160 Euro's from the hotel to the ship. ( regular rate of !80 Euro's). From the FCO airport you can go by train, bus or taxi.to the downtown Main Termini Station. I decided to try my luck on the bus this time vs the train ( taxis are to expensive 45 Euros). As you exit terminal 3 baggage claim at the FCO airport, make a right turn and walk to the end of the building exiting on to the side walk. You will see signs directing you to the many buses parked and ready to go for different parts of the city. There are attendants who speak very good English that will direct you to the bus you will need to get you to the Rome Termini Station .You can pay the 6 Euro per person ride in a very comfortable bus ! hour ride. You can pay at the Kiosh booth near by as well. Arriving at thje Termini Station , ask the bus driver for directions to Via Marsala ' Best Western Royal Santina is a 118 room ultra modern hotel. From the lobby to the rooms. The check in staff were very helpful. Forgot your AC adapter> Not to worry, you can borrow one from them.They can also print out the train time schedule to any where in Italy.( Book ahead as this hotel books full). This hotel has 3 elevators. Our room # 615 was a very clean, small ultra modern room with a comfortable king bed that sat low to the floor. ( other rooms in this hotel are larger and with views). A very compact room with a bath room that was surprisingly large with a tub and walk in shower. No micro wave, It did have a refrigerator. This room faced the busy street of Via Marsala. Even with all the traffic, it was a very quite room.No problem sleeping, Breakfast buffet will cost you 5 Euro's per person and worth the price, Lunch and dinner is also served. A lot of restaurants around this area. The front desk staff recomended the La Famigila restaurant located 1 1/2 blocks from the hotel. Ask for directions as there are several restaurants with the like name that is more expensive and the food not as good. Usually you will see 5 tour buses parked across the street in front of . the hotel during the AM, So, grab your camera, buy your ticket and hop on board! Happy Travels, Sydney Paul ..

    « train station access »

    I would choose this hotel only if you want to be next to the train station. The breakfast is good and staff is accommodating. They'll even hold your bags, order you a taxi, make a reservation; however, the location benefit is limited to being next to the train station. All other attractions and restaurant access is further away. Be cautious of the area. A lot of traffic and people due to the access to the station.

    « Temperature control issues »

    The hotel turned off AC and the room was too warm...there was a window (which remained crack -which created am awful draft during the late hours. The bathroom was designed to be modern- but it wasn't practical. We only had a shower - however the shower did not have enclosed glass doors ~ so water was everywhere. Bed was too soft! Breakfast buffet was average at best...lukewarm 'hot' food, half cooked bacon, not appetizing. We were on a non-smoking floor - however we could smell cigarette smoke as soon as we exited our room.

    « Great Value, Great Location »

    It was my wife's 50th birthday trip, and we were going on a cruise that sailed from Rome. So we stayed here for 3 nights before the cruise, along with a dozen of our friends! We apologize to those who had a room facing the little garden on the 1st floor, as we tend to gather there before and after dinner, and we got a little (lot) loud. The rooms were quite large. As we were only there for a short time, we did not unpack, and we were able to leave our suitcases on the floor and still not trip over them. The bed was comfortable, really nice bathrooms, and nice soft linens! The buffet breakfast was only €5 per person, really affordable and good.

    We enjoyed our 5 night stay at this hotel. The rooms were spacious (for Europe) and well maintained. The staff were very helpful. The location was convenient for easy walking to many sites. There was a breakfast buffet with a great selection for a reasonable cost. We were traveling with a group of friends and there is an inside courtyard that became a wonderful meeting place.

    My girlfriend and I spent 5 nights at this hotel and we had a very good experience, if we had any questions or problems we had great customer service and they responded quickly. Hotel room and bathroom were modern and clean , cleaners were great too with their attention to detail. Breakfast was not included but we were only charged 5 euros pp. Hotel is located 5 minutes from Roma Termini station, only a 35-40 minute train ride from Fiumicino airport and also 5 minutes from the main bus station. All in all a very lovely trip,would highly recommend.

    « Great Modern Hotel »

    Loved the location of this hotel, it was a block from the train station and an easy walk to a lot of tourist spots, like the Trevi Fountain. The room was very comfortable and quite modern-- those fancy ambient lights may have required a call to the front desk for me to figure out, but the person working was very friendly and didn't make me feel like an idiot for needing some guidance. I also had the best meal of my vacation by taking their advice on where to go; having a knowledgeable front desk staff is always a plus. The only downside was that the walls seemed quite thin, so I could easily hear other guests running around at odd hours of the night.

    « Exceptional in Every Way »

    The Hotel Royal Santina was simply one of the best hotels I stayed at while visiting Italy and Greece over a 12 day period. The staff was exceptionally welcoming and helpful, and my upgraded room was luxurious. It's location and easy access to Termini for both city access and transportation to the airports and city highlights/tours was excellent. I would only choose this hotel in the future. I only wish I'd arranged additional days in advance, but will surely plan to do so when I return next year!

    « Great location with modern room at fair price »

    The hotel is well located for travellers with only a 5 minute stroll from Roma Termini Railway Station which has express trains to the International Airport and other international train services. Our room was on the top floor and was a good size with modern fittings. The only fault we found was that the cord on the electric jug was too short to reach the power points provided. The restaurant did not offer a large choice of food but was adequate and reasonably priced. Breakfast was an excellent buffet for the low price charged. Recommended.

    Have just returned from 4 nights at this hotel. Staff were fabulous and so professional.Excellent service was clearly really important to them. Breakfast was a dream and other meals both lunch and dinner were very good if a little limited in choice. The rooms were of a reasonable size but clean and modern.The bathroom was excellent and the beds very comfortable. Would we stay there in Rome again? Absolutely. Thoroughly recommended.

    « Very pleased with this hotel and location »

    This was a repeat trip to Rome for us. The hotel was on a list with our airline package. We wanted something close to the Termini train station and it was ultimately convenient! only a 5-7 minute walk and felt quite safe, even at night. The hotel is quite modern, with lovely rooms, being fairly spacious for European hotels. Although breakfast was not included in our room rate, it was available for 5 Euro per person. There was more than and adequate selection of fruits, breads, eggs, meats, juices, etc. The location was bright and modern. We woudl definitely return again as it had everything we needed: close to trains for easy connections, comfortable rooms/ beds, economical and convenient breakfast.

    « Great location »

    Just returned from our 3 day trip to Rome, we stayed here because of its perfect location - a two minute walk from the Termini station! We walked to the Colosseum, Pantheon, Roman Forum and the Trevi Fountain from here - if you're able bodied you don't need the hop on tour bus in my opinion. Be mindful of street sellers around these places, they will try to give you trinkets as gifts and then beg for money. We used the subway to get to Vatican city which was 7 euros, coming back we got off at Spagna to look at the Spanish Steps. We queued for two hours to get in the Vatican museum, don't pay to skip the queue as they mentioned charging us 50 euros! It's 16 euros entry and worth the wait. Hotel was nice enough, good location, clean rooms, breakfast not amazing but plenty of choice. Unfortunately just to mention the toilets in reception were always filthy when used before we set off for the day. Also, a man in reception who I assume was a security guard was very rude to us whenever we came back to the hotel in the evening, he asked us every night if we were definitely staying at the hotel and in what room number?! Aside from that, a thoroughly enjoyable trip! P.S - cross the roads with extreme caution as motorists don't stop for anything!

    Room is clean, also have a free cell phone, make your trip much more convenience. Good AC in the room too. Great location, close to train station, there's a supermarket under the train station. There's many more other store in case you need anything. Also walking distance to many attraction. There's also an ATM machines, it works with my bank of America bank card. Great breakfast, it's totally worth it to pay 3 Euro a day than go out to find food if you don't have much time. good coffee machines, the food choice is good.

    Nice centrally located & close to termini station. I did a lot of walking during 1st part of stay as my sister was working. Most of the places were within 30 minutes from hotel. Some places I walked to were, Trevi Fountain, St Peter's Basilica & Park Villa Ada. Once my sister was done with work, we bought metro/bus passes as she has knee issues, and most place were either a metro ride less than 5 stops or one bus. It was great that hotel had a smartphone you could use for navigation while there & keeping in contact instead of using your own plan. But because they have this phone, they should have a charging port that stays on when you leave room. As when we got there the battery in phone in room was only at 23%. Good thing I had a fast charger with me. The hotel staff were all very friendly. The breakfast wasn't bad for $3 euro a day, but wished it had more options like maybe being able to have eggs cooked over easy, the cut up fruit salad with a little more than apples & maybe some kind of hash brown potatoes. All & all I would differently go back to this hotel again. Hotel

    A very nice hotel located near Termini station so easy access to all the sites of Rome. Reasonable selection for breakfast, would have liked fried potatoes and sausage.

    « Great Hotel! Location Not So Great... »

    My stay at the Royal Santina was (in general) amazing. Rome is by far my favourite place to visit and it feels like a second home to me in some ways. The city, the food, its people, the culture and everything that's going on make it one of the best cities in the world. We arrived at the hotel rather late so we thought we'd pop out for some quick food before settling in for the night (around 10pm). We luckily found a pizza place right outside the hotel, but as soon as we sat down to eat it, a very violent fight broke out right next to our table. It was rather frightening as no one seemed to do anything about it for a long time. We soon realised that the neighbourhood in which the hotel is located is a bit rough and not as safe as others might be. It's directly opposite the Termini Railway Station which sleeps hundreds of homeless people every night. They aren't necessarily dangerous, but after that first night we were always a bit more careful walking back at night time. Other than this slight concern, the hotel was beautiful. It is in walking distance to pretty much everything (around 20-25 minutes to Trevi Fountain, Colosseum, Spanish Steps, Pantheon etc.) and it's a lovely walk particularly in the Summer. The rooms are very well maintained, modern, comfortable and exactly what we needed. They're also fully equipped with great air conditioning which is amazing after a long hot day walking around in the sun. The breakfast set us up nicely for the day, with a large variety of hot and cold options and all very good quality. The staff at reception were great, and they recommended a lot of nice places for us to eat/drink throughout the day. I would definitely stay here again, but I do think there are other options a little closer to main attractions which have more attractive surroundings. But for what we paid, I can't complain at all. Rome is absolutely incredible. I recommend going on the hop-on hop-off bus tour on the first day to get your bearings. The Ice Bar, Piazza Navona, Travestere neighbourhood and Villa Borghese were all also very stand-out places for me. Make sure you hire a bike or a tandem to ride around on for a few hours - it's great fun! Thanks for a great stay!

    Our party of 9 stayed one night after our Mediterranean Cruise. We arrived quite early and our rooms were not available for about 4 hours; however, the hotel stored our luggage. Highlights of our stay were the comfortable beds, clean spacious rooms, large cool bathrooms, and a choice of color for the room lighting! Good location.

    « Best Location in Rome! »

    This hotel is in the very best location in Rome. We were able to walk to Vatican City (1 hour 15 min walk) and the Forum/Colosseum (45 minutes). The hotel gives you a smartphone to use while you are staying there. The phone was very handy. We used google maps for walking directions to the sites. This was the nicest hotel that we saw for several blocks so we were very happy with our choice. The hotel is located next to the termini train station which was very convenient for traveling from the hotel to the cruise port at the end of our 4 day stay in Rome. The termini station is also like a shopping mall and has a pharmacy and grocery store and restaurants. The hotel room was much better than we expected for a Great Western. I would compare it to a nice but small Radisson Hotel. Our only issue with the room was that the combination bathtub shower did not have a shower curtain and that caused the bathroom floor to get wet. Other than that the room was clean and comfortable and the staff at the hotel were friendly and helpful. For those interested in the city sightseeing hop on hop off bus the stop is directly across the street from the hotel entrance. We had a great time in Rome. We will definitely return and we will stay at the Great Western Royal Santina.

    We stayed hear for a week and walked all over Rome. The hotel was very convenient, especially close to Roma Termini rail station which meant no taxis needed to get in and out. The lobby doesn't look like much but the service and drinks, which came with munchies, were nothing short of excellent. Breakfast is typical hotel self-serve but the price of just 3 euros made it work nicely. The staff at the front desk were very helpful. The furnishings are modern.

    We picked this hotel due to its proximity to the train station...solely based on location. It was a quick walk to the metro which is what we wanted. Many great restaurants within a few minutes walk. The rooms a small based on North American standards, but comparable to rooms in Asia. We only used the room for sleeping and showering. The room is contemporary, modular furnishings, and as noted is a bit small...however great value. The breakfast buffet at 3 euros per person is a great offer with an excellent selection of food. All staff were pleasant, helpful and friendly.

    Hotel Royal Santina is centrally located right across from the Termini train station in Rome. The hotel staff is extremely professional and very accommodating. The breakfast provides ample variety for every taste. The room we had was extremely clean and very modern with LED mood lighting and a bathroom comprised of various glass panels. There was even a speaker in the bathroom, so you could hear the television. One of the greatest features of this hotel was that the room came with a complimentary smartphone. You were allowed to take it out of the room and use its data to surf the web, just as you would on your own smartphone. It also offered you the possibility of buying discounted tickets for tours and events through Musement. I would definitely recommend this hotel for anyone who will be staying in Rome.

    My husband and I stayed at this hotel for three days prior to a Princess cruise. It was arranged by Princess for us. The hotel is centrally located, one block from the central bus/train/ metro station. The Hop-On Hop-Off bus stopped right across the street from the hotel and made sightseeing so easy. But by far the best part was the helpful, friendly staff! They assisted with directions, making reservations, and anything else we needed. I especially want to thank the woman at the desk, Iolanda, the woman who treated us each morning as we went to the wonderful breakfast buffet, PatriIa, and the Customer Service Director, Roberta.

    « Ideal on all levels... »

    We checked in to the Hotel Royal Santina Aug 1st 2017 and stayed for five nights The hotel is located across the street and about a block away from the Roma Termini Train station. Even though the Hotel is not close to the airport it is close and within walking distance to all major attractions in Rome if you are in pretty good shape and enjoy walking. We walked to the Trevi Fountain, The Colosseum, Vatican City, Spanish steps, Piazza Navona and Ponte Sant' Angelo.. You can catch a train from the airport very easily or hail a cab to reach the hotel We stayed in room 805 which had a courtyard view. The 8th floor is the highest floor in the hotel. The room is a little small but was more than adequate. The king bed was soft and there is mood lighting which was cool. Colors could be changed manually from Red,Green, Blue or White. Or you could simply turn them off altogether. We had a wonderful rain shower with a handheld wall shower mount in our bathroom. There is Wi-fi and a cell phone that can be used in the room at no extra charge. There was a small fridge with drinks inside that will get charged to your room if you consume those items. We used the fridge to store small food and beverage items The Hotel's breakfast was amazing and super cheap. We paid 3 Euros pp and this could be charged to your room. The breakfast offered plenty of pastries, pancakes, meats, eggs, cereals, fruits, breads etc. The hop on hop off bus as well as other buses were directly across the street from the hotel. The gym was perfect and I was the only person that used it the entire time. Two treadmills, one elyptical and universal gym with a small selection of free weights was perfect. The gym was clean and spacious with a water cooler with cold drinking water. The staff was always very friendly and helpful.. The courtyard is for smokers which was nice for the smokers however if you don't smoke you may not want to try and relax out there even though it was very inviting. The Hotel may not look very inviting on the outside but for what it lacks on outside appearance it is what on the inside that counts.. Close to everything.. Loved it..

    Spent the night on August 5 at this hotel after a Cunard cruise. It was very clean and seemed quite safe. The staff members were fine. The hotel had kind of a cold industrial feel. Bed was comfortable. There was a family staying in the room next door and they got in after midnight and were very loud, shouting slamming doors etc. I could hear the blow dryer as if it were in our room. I could also hear the hangers sliding back and forth on the rack. The family was rude but unfortunately their noise made it obvious that the walls were paper thin.Three stars seemed not enough, four stars seems like too much.

Clean and tidy. They even offer a smart mobile phone in your room for use around Rome. We didn't need one but great idea. In room air dryer but professional dryer and hair straightening units available from reception. Lots of shampoos and consumables in the bath room. Breakfast was included in our fare and as previous comments they could replenish items a little quicker, fair selection and pastries and cakes were good. Bar offers complimentary snacks, crisps chips and pretzels. Also had caviar and salmon one afternoon. Hop on hop off but across the road, main train station 5 min walk. We were Not disturbed by any road noise. Cabs from air port to this hotel were fixed at 48€ Extra towels blankets and little things you may have forgot are all available complimentary at reception.

    This hotel was a luck of the draw since I have never been to Rome. Ok maybe you can get a fancier place to stay and pay a higher price. But folks let me tell ya....this is a gem. When it comes to saving money, there's no other hotel better! Save money how you ask? Well TERMINI is right next door! Buses (Public and Private Tour buses), Trains, the METRO! All these modes of transportation can save you on Taxies. I prefer the Metro to get around Rome...easy to buy tickets and to learn. A and B routes start early and run late. Back to Santina, good comfortable rooms staff is top professionals... Fabrico desk clerk is a real good guy who will help you with anything.... The bartender...Marenlla (Forgive me for misspelled name) the wife and I know that this hotel is lucky to have you working here!

    Well we were scheduled to stay at another property but got sent here instead. It worked out due to the staff being very helpful. Room was very nice and way above our expectations. They gave us a great dinner recommendation and helped us book a car for our 4am trip to the airport. Only issue I had was with night desk guy who it looked like we woke up when checking out at 4am. He pretty much grumbled the whole time. Other than that I would for sure stay here again. The location was great for us to navigate our post cruise one night stay.

    The hotel is located 2min from the train station and bus terminus. And within walking distance of historical sites. Hop on hop off bus is directly opposite the hotel. More pros: free WiFi, excellent breakfast with fresh fruit and very fresh bread and croissant and cakes and and ..... Rooms were non smoking and the restaurant serve lunch and dinner. Very helpful staff. Coffee making facilities. Safe. Fridge. Again very professional and helpful staff. our flight was early morning and we even had a takeaway breakfast option and was allowed to have our breakfast earlier than normal.. There was also a mobile phone that we could use to help on our way around the city(but very expensive if it breaks be careful) highly recommended. Cons: on the first day there was fresh orange juice and after that yucky ones. Why? we were so happy to find one hotel out of the 17 we stayed at in Italy during our vacation that provided proper orange juice. Still highly recommended. Just note that the city taxes are in addition to the hotel bill, but it's like that throughout Italy. If you consider that the taxes are to be added the the price for the room is a bit on the high side

    Great hotel, friendly concierge and very helpful employees. If you plan on staying here get the bigger size room since the rooms tend to be small. The rooms are clean,modern and updated. The shower could use some sort of update since the shower head doesn't really stay in place and water ends up going outside the tub; but it's not a huge issue. Their breakfast was great for 3 euro per person. It's walking distance from Treni station which makes it super convenient if you are visiting other cities. We walked to many places including colosseum which was only 20 min away. Concierge was also helpful in booking private driver for us to airport and etc. don't bother with taxis, they are only 2 euros cheaper and unprofessional. Extra Tip: Avoid the bakery shop on the right down the street. Do not be tempted at all. Their bakery is gross,old and rude customer service. Best part is they only take cash and 5 Euro per cookie.

    We stayed at this hotel for four nights in July. The hotel employees were all very pleasant. Our room was very clean. The room cleanliness was far superior to most hotels were we've stayed. There is also free Wi-Fi. Each day, when we returned from sightseeing the room and bathroom had been refreshed, which included replenishing towels, wash cloths, tissue, soap, etc... This was always so appreciated after long days out in heat. The hotel is very convenient to Termini, which has a supermarket and several shops and restaurants. The walk to Termini is only two-three minutes. There are also several places to eat and places to buy souvenirs within a very short walking distance of the hotel. One day, we walked from the hotel to the Spanish Steps and then on to Trevi Fountain. If you plan to walk, it took us about 25 min with an eight year old. Be sure if you are going during summer, wear your visor/hat and carry bottled water as these items will be needed for the heat. If you decide to take cabs, the fare was usually far less than 10 euros to most locations. The hotel is very nice and quaint. Not too large and not too small. The rooms are a very good size. We had the equivalent of a double bed and then a small couch bed for our eight year old. It was the perfect size for a child and it was great that she had her own sleeping area. You can even change some of the colors of the lighting in the room, which our daughter found fascinating. And, just remember, keep your door card inside the card slot on the wall once you enter the room to keep the lights on. You'll understand when you enter the room. I would highly recommend this hotel for its cleanliness and convenience particularly if you are going to be taking several train trips to other cities. Give the Best Western Premier Royal Santina a try, you will be very happy with your stay.

    The lobby of the hotel on first impression felt like a bus terminal. There were so many people there waiting for transport to cruise ships and info tables to accommodate them, as well as so much luggage! The staff was very helpful through our overnight stay. The hotel was closed to restaurants and some shopping, close enough to some attractions to walk. The room had a sleek European feel, with curved angles and fixtures. The keypad to get in the room was industrial. The room was adequate, large bathroom with nice amenitities, either new or recently remodeled bath with large shower, tub, bidet, and stool. The fixtures had lights behind that you could set to white,red, blue, or green. A little funky. There was also a mobile phone to use, so in the city, you could use it! Interesting concept! The provided breakfast seemed nice on concept, but the pastries tasted like day old, the eggs were so loose, and the fruit was canned. It just was not that great.

    The hotel is only a few minutes away from Roma Termini, the transport hub. Nice location, safe. Room was clean and modern, though with some dated flourishes to the decor. As another reviewer mentioned, the window was left open by the cleaners presumably, so was very hot when we returned at the end of the day; it had been 35 degree C in Rome. However, they sent someone to close the window and check the air con as soon as we informed reception. Breakfast cost only 3 euros, but it was a great spread with huge choice. This was probably the best feature of the hotel. The food was not exceptional, but very much satisfactory. The staff were helpful, allowed us to have breakfast earlier then the usual opening time, on a day when we had to leave very early for a booked tour.

    « Very close to Termini Station but a bit overpriced »

    The hotel is a bit overpriced. The best is the hotel is very close to Termini station, just cross the road and turn left within 2-3 minutes. This is our second time in Rome, and we like the area which seems to be much safer and quieter than the other side of the terminal. On the contrary, less shops and restaurants nearby but we still prefer. We are a family of 3 and stayed 2 nights in a triple room with 2 singles and a sofa-bed. The room size is adequate but still need to squeeze a bit for 2 suitcases. The room looks modern and stylish but seems to be dated which need renovation within few more years. The bed is comfortable and have some choices for the pillow, and we do have a good sleep. The bathroom is large with both bathtub and shower room, however, the bathtub is just separated by a frosted glass wall but still can see through. It can be nice to a couple but not good to a family. We use the shower room instead with good water pressure, but water leaks out to the bathroom and we have to be very careful when taking shower. The hotel staff is polite but a bit cool and not sincere. We need to pay 3 euros each for the breakfast as not included in the room rate, it is fine with quite some choices but not very delicious. Overall experience is just in average considering the price and conditions of the room. Only will consider to stay again with a lower price.

    Stayed 4 nights with a friend and must say the location is terrific being only 2 mins walk to Rome Termini station so it makes it very convenient to move/get around. Internet speed is really good and it is kept clean. Room was spacious enough for 2. The kettle and tea/coffee was kept in the wardrobe next to the safe! However the shower over the bath tub is not great (hence not disabled or elderly friendly) as water tends to splash everywhere. The shower gel provided smells like a disinfectant and no hair conditioner is provided; so not a fan. The housekeeping on the 3rd day was utterly disapponting as they left the window was left open (hence the room was oven hot when I came back) and rubbish (as photographed above) was not cleared away. The bin in the bathroom was also broken (not by us as it was fine when we left in the morning) and not replaced. Staff is friendly and helpful so that was nice. The hotel seems popular with tour groups as we saw a few whilst here

    Hotel arranged through Royal Caribbean. Location is excellent- very close to Rome Termini station (less than 5 min walk) which is a simple train ride from airport. Spacious and clean room, fast Wifi. Excellent shower! Breakfast was good and nice range. We had an issue with our transfer to the port and staff were very helpful and polite. Would recommend.

    I stayed in a triple room which was very large and modern, both room and bathroom. Wonderful position near Termini Station and cosy for city centre. Un front of the hotel there is a red bus station for hop on hop off city sightseeing tour. Rich breakfast.

    I booked the BWP Royal Santina for a group of 60 tour members for two nights pre- stay in Rome. The bookings were handled immaculately inspite of variations in dates and room occupancy. The hotel is ideally located, five minutes walking from the Termini Roma and all sightseeing tours begin and end literally at its doorstep. Rooms have been recently refurbished with no amenities lacking. Good buffet breakfast service. Highly recommended for group or individual travel.

    « Nice location, convenient for business »

    Went for a 2 days business meeting, rooms are modern and chic, you can find what you need in the hotel. They are offering a nice service with a samsung phone that you can use during your stay (Didn't get the chance to use it, so not sure how it works exactly). Breakfast is good, the staff are helpful especially Fabrizia that will greet you every morning and will assist with any needs you have. Thank you again for all the help Fabrizia. The elevators are slow, there is a smoking area in the first floor, nice place to stay in general.

    « Good location ! »

    Stayed in Royal Santina for two nights. Overall good experience. Best part is easy connections to rest of the city. Red bus stop right opposite hotel. Great option for tourists not familiar with the city. Breakfast is fine. Room size is ok. Mood lighting in the room is fun. Reason for 3 star rating is unhelpful & snooty attitude of a couple of staff members and a really dirty toilet on ground floor.

    « Excellent location for travellers »

    The hotel is bright and modern. Rooms are smaller but clean, comfortable and have everything you need. The staff was very friendly and helpful. It is located right next to the train station so we weren't sure what to expect. It was perfect as we were coming and going. If your intent is to stay longer than a few days and visit all the historical sites in Rome, it's a bit of a walk. We enjoy walking but it's a good 25-30 minutes to Trevi Fountain, Piazza Navona, etc.That said, the hotel is very good about getting a cab quickly for you.

    « The Restaurant! »

    We had a lunch at this restaurant with a group during our Rome visit. The supplier had arranged us a fixed menu and it was quite good, not so fancy and expensive. It was a very simple Lunch and tasty one. The restaurant is a good and clean one.

    We were only able to stay one night as a stop over before catching our flight home to Toronto, and were very impressed with this hotel. Super close to the train station which we wanted, good selection at the very moderately priced breakfast. The rooms was clean and bright, and a great bathroom. We went for a nice walk and were at the Trevi fountain before we knew it. I would recommend.

    excellent location to train station but can easily access by turning right from the platforms go out into the street cross over and turn left 50 metres rather than exit station and cross cobbled footpaths. Room clean checking very easy, breakfast suitable close to restaurants. Bathrooms have seperate toilet, bit noisy is other person still sleeping for showers as only glass partitions.Shower over bath bit of a challenge if older.

    Stayed here for 3 nights and couldn't be happier with the cleanliness, and very friendly and informative staff. The rooms are well laid out and the shower is a pleasure after a long haul flight. Right near the Roma Termini and hop on hop off bus right at front door. Breakfast is plentiful and a good variety of hot and cold foods.

    Hotel is very modern / clean and for 3 EURO each includes breakfast. We used this hotel prior to embarking on cruise. The location is near the train station in a very nice area. Basically we walked with our luggage from the Main Termini Train Station to this hotel when arriving in Rome. To visit the the city we used the metro and buses that are very close to this hotel. I would highly recommend this hotel.

    « Great hotel let down by a few things in bedroom »

    This hotel is ideally situated for a sight seeing holiday in Rome being just a few minutes walk from the Termini (main railway station). Our room faced out towards the station and was surprisingly quiet. We only heard sirens and a church bell that wakes the city at 7am! The rooms and hotel are modern and clean. The beds are extremely comfortable and the room is a good size. Black out curtains means you get a good sleep. There is a mini bar but there is a bit of room to chill your own drink or packet food as well. A couple of features let the room down - very high rails in the wardrobe (see photo, hubby is 6'3") with two tiny drawers on floor level. That was it for storage and for a 5 day stay that was disappointing. The bathroom lacked a shelf or similar too. The sinks are trendy but not practical and water goes all over the surface you would think is for putting your wash bag. The big shower is great but ours leaked. Not sure if that was a design flaw too or just our room. But, now to the real positives. Breakfast and service. Breakfast is just 3 Euros per person. Bargain! Tea, coffee, juices, yogurts, cereals, cakes/pastries, fresh fruit, bread/toast, pancakes, sausage, bacon, eggs (scrambled and boiled). I expect I've forgotten something too but 3 euros?! Brilliant!! have some dietary issues which means I have to limit wheat and lactose. The hotel offers gluten free Schar products (individually sealed) plus brings a heated gluten free roll. Just ask as they are not put out as standard. Lactose free milk and yogurt is also provided as well as Soy milk. A special mention must be made of Patrizia who was on breakfast duty. She brought me my extra food supplies on day one and remembered me each day after that. A really lovely and helpful lady. After check out they held our cases for us so we could enjoy our last day of sightseeing. Over all I would stay again but would take a hanging organiser for the bathroom.

    Stayed for just two nights in room 714 - one of the mini suites with a balcony. Room was modern, very clean and well furnished, very comfortable bed and the balcony was a great size. I had a few problems with the TV, safe and lighting (problems were mine and not the equipment) and each time I rang for help it arrived within minutes. The hotel provides a Nokia phone in each room for guests use while in Rome - free international and local calls, apps for finding restaurants, details of all attractions and a super handy button 'take me back to the hotel' which gives you all you need to know to walk your way back. A fantastic idea which we made full use of - I hope more hotels will do this. Breakfast was so-so. I asked if we could have the room beyond the normal 11am check out. No problem - we were able to have it until 2pm at no extra charge. The hotel is super convenient for the HOHO - the stop is right outside the hotel. Overall I thoroughly enjoyed the two nights I spent here and would heartily recommend it. I will definitely use it again when I'm next lucky enough to be in Rome.

    « Stylish, well positioned, but noisy. »

    We stopped for two nights following a cruise. The hotel is very modern and stylish. The rooms are in the same modern style with a large comfortable bed. The bedroom has mood lighting, but lacks draw storage. The main criticism is the level of noise in the room; we could hear doors banging throughout the night. The bathroom was large with a bath and separate rainfall shower, but lacked any selves for storage. Breakfast was a good continental buffet, with a wide selection of pastries. Tea spoons were in short supply on both morning. All the staff we met were helpful and friendly. There is a small bar area next to the lobby, and drinks are not expensive and always come with snacks. The hotel is positioned opposite to the railway station, and the open-top, hop-on, hop-off bus stops directly outside, a great way to get your bearings and reach some of the major sites. The hotel also provides a free to use smart phone with free calls and useful tourist information and guide apps.

    « Helpful Staff, Great Location »

    We had a 2 night-stay with the hotel. The room was actually a bit small and the bed was not comfortable. We booked a king sized bed room but the bed was actually made from two twin bed mattresses packed together. So the center part of the bed had a gap in it and we just couldn't sleep at all. Apart from that, the location was great. Literally 5 mins walk or less from the train station to the hotel and there is an airport shuttle bus stop just in front of the hotel. A lot of restaurants inside the station and around. Another thing that was great about this hotel was that staff were helpful in helping us find back the lost item in the room after we checked out. We left a hat inside the room and the staff was very help in finding the item for us and sending us the item back to Hong Kong! Would like to thank Stefania Grande, the Fo Manager in assisting us on this issue. Thank you!

    For us this hotel has it all - a great location, a comfortable (if a bit small) room with a great shower, extremely friendly and helpful staff (all of them) and a fabulous breakfast - OK you did have to pay for the breakfast - but at 3€ its a bargain. It is very close to the Termini - which itself is very easy to get to from the main Rome airport. One tip - rather than leaving the termini from the front to get to the hotel leave from the Via Marsala exit - the hotel is on the Via Marsala. If ever in Rome again we will use this hotel - no question

    The location of the hotel makes it special for all tourists and business travellers. Located next to Roma Termini station, the hotel offers good cozy rooms and gives you nice feeling. I stayed there for 2 nights on a business cum leisure trip. The breakfast spread was sumptuous and the hotel staffs are very friendly. For any tourist I believe this will be an ultimate choice of hotel staying at Rome. Since it is a business hotel, there is only one restaurant at this hotel but have the best services around.

    Very nice hotel, and very central. Right across the road from Termini Station, and the hop off hop off busses stop 1 is directly out the front. Breakfast is cheap and good, and the restaurant make delicious food for reasonable prices. Rooms are very nice, and recently updated by the looks. Staff excellent and speak English. Only downfall is that they do not advise of the city tax, meaning most things to pay for, is changed a tax. Each mini bar item values at €2.50 had a €6.00 tax added when leaving.

    « Unremarkable, but convenient »

    We don't know any Italian, and the staff were mostly able to assist us in English. The room was kept immaculate by the housekeeping staff daily. We were a little disappointed to be looking at a square of other hotel windows from our room, and thought we would get a view of the city (I know, you shouldn't assume!). Restaurant: The breakfast offering was basic, but adequate, and the dinner menu offers few choices, but the food was ok. We would recommend this as a business hotel, or for people who aren't keen on calling their hotel room their home away from home, but prefer instead to concentrate on being away from their room, using it only to sleep. It wasn't very romantic at all. The walls are very thin, and you can expect to hear a lot from the rooms around you. Having said that, the ambilight feature was really good, and we loved 'mood lighting' between white, green, red and blue.

    We stayed here for 7 nights, booked king room (614). The Bathroom is so clean, everything is so clean. Not happy about the Bed because they put twin bed together just to make like a king bed. Requested for Utensils and took 30 minutes, we called them again as the attendant placed in to a wrong room. so we decided to get from their restaurant. But everything went smooth and fine. :)

    « Undecided »

    To be honest I'm a little undecided about this hotel, we really enjoyed our stay (so will give it 4 stars) but if a friend of mine was looking for a hotel recommendation I'm not sure I'd tell them to stay here. Our room was lovely and large and modern. We stayed in a suite which had a decked terrace looking out over the Rome rooftops. I'm sure this is quite unique in Rome. The rooms were nicely designed and immaculately clean. The hotel is very conveniently located just a few minutes walk from Termini which makes the trip from the airport an absolute breeze. The staff were nice and helpful. But the reasons I wouldn't recommend are as follows. I think for a weekend break to Rome that the hotel is not quite central enough. Yes it's near Termini and therefore an underground station but Rome does not have many underground stops so a lot of walking is still required. This is especially noticeable at the end of a day when you're exhausted and just want to be back at your hotel. Breakfast for €3 is ridiculously cheap but the selection and quality is quite poor. After the first morning we didn't bother again. We usually like the convenience of eating breakfast at our hotel so would have been happy to pay a lot more for a better offering. To be fair to the hotel though I can see that €3 for breakfast of any standard in Rome is a good price. Noise - We were there for 3 nights and each night was the same. Police/ambulance sirens throughout the night and then at 7am every morning the nearby Basilica bells ringing. Both of these were VERY loud. I appreciate they are out of the hotels control but I think better soundproofed glass is needed. Tip: For an authentic evening meal go to Rifugio Romano a few minutes away. Turn right out of the hotel, over the crossing and it's just on the other side of the road.

    We were met by extremely helpful reception staff who spoke perfect English. We booked a superior room which was spotlessly clean. Breakfast was excellent, with really good choice.The hotel is ideally located and is across the road from Termini station and also the SIT bus stop for airport transfers, yet it's very quiet. It's only a 20 minute walk to the see the sights... Colosseum, St Peters square, Spanish Steps and even less to the Trevi Fountain. Couldn't fault the hotel and it would be my number one choice if I ever return to Rome.

Had excellent veal marsala with funny faux pas over the wine. Thought we were ordering glasses of Moscato, discovered instead it was pure alcohol, the strength of Ouzo.

The bathroom was very stylist and up to date. The shower head was very powerful. The breakfast was lovely, had a great variety of food and drink. The staff throughout our stay were very helpful and friendly. The hotel can provide you with a few essentials free of charge. If they don't have any in reception then someone leaves it in your room for you.

    One of the best things about this hotel is the location. Quite easy to do a great deal by foot from this spot. We didn't take the train, but the station is less than a 5 minute walk from the front door. The rooms were very clean and have this fun uplighting that you could manipulate the color. Sounds silly but made it fun. More modern that one would expect. The dining options at the hotel were a little spotty but there were incredible dining locations within a couple of blocks from the hotel as well. Very helpful staff who were extremely fluent in English. If returning on a budget, I'd certainly pick this hotel again.

    We checked in to this hotel on Mid July (booked the hotel in April), we were charged extra 20 euro/per night (normally 50 euro, as the reception say), for additional person/per night, in existing bedding and all other existing amenities.Nothing extra. (for my second son who joined at last moment, and were not able to find another hotel with 4-beds by that time).First night we reported clogged drain, in shower that was reported to reception right away and were neglected by the reception to be fixed in the following day. Second day we had a flood in washroom which made our cloths wet in bags lying nearby.Staff never offered to dry our wet cloths. Other than the location (next to termini station), not worth the money, not worth to deal with unfriendly,negligent staff.

We also overheard other guests being told the same incorrect information on their arrival. However, Breakfast is only €3 pp each day and worth it for the good selection and variety. Only down side to the breakfast is the incredibly rude staff and the clear up that begins 15 minutes before the end of breakfast. The staff start switching everything off and taking the food away, literally snatching trays away before people get a chance to chose their breakfast. Overall we had a good stay at this hotel, would stay again but wouldn't bother with breakfast.

    Hotel is in a great location next to the bus and train station. Rooms nice and clean BUT. We were told we had breakfast included on check in, when we went down the next day they said we had to pay. It's only €3 each but still a bit naughty. We got in for breakfast at 10.15 and when they say they close at 10.30 they're not joking they literally took the plate away while I was getting my food and just pointed at her watch so bloody rude. For £100 a night I expect a hell of a lot more from the staff! You can have a nice hotel but if you don't treat your customers with any respect then it spoils the experience.

    « Literally right smack in the middle of everything + included full breakfast :) »

    I was looking for a hotel that was in the middle of the city to make sight seeing a breeze. I wanted something where I could include breakfast (I believe there was a small fee) since I was traveling alone. At first I wasn't sure about this hotel as it was a Best Western but let me assure you this hotel is a fantastic choice. The staff is incredibly helpful and speak excellent English. The rooms are modern, clean and hip. The bathroom and shower were very nice. I have become accustomed to smaller showers with water issue while in Europe. This was the complete opposite. The breakfast in the morning was very nice. There was a huge buffet with both hot and cold offerings. They also had a fantastic coffee machine which was quite the treat! Located across the street from Termini station getting everywhere is incredibly easy. This hotel would be perfect for the business traveler, solo traveler and family travelers as they have larger rooms for families available too!

    The staff were all very friendly. The hotel was clean and the rooms were very large. The breakfast was wonderful, lots of choices, but I found the staff serving in the morning were not so friendly. We had dinner in the restaurant one evening, both my husband and I did not enjoy it. For the price paid for the food it should of been better. Overall, I would return there again and again, because of the location and the hotel is beautiful and kept clean. This hotel is in a fantastic location. Across the street from the train station and walking distance to so many places. I recommend this hotel.

    « Nice hotel near Termini station »

    We stayed here for one night, before leaving Rome by train. Location of the hotel was perfect for us, because its ony few steps away from Termini station. Hotel staff was friendly and eager to help if needed. We expecially enjoyed the lobbybar, which had nice drinks comfortable aircondition and really friendly bartender. It was nice moment to relax after a walktour around hot Rome. Room was clean and comfortable. It had a nice tv on the wall and aircondition worked fine. We found bit problematic that the wall between bathroom and bedroom was made of glass. So during night time, when someone went to the bathroom, the lights did illuminate the whole room. Our room also had only a bathtub, which is not nice for a person who is used to use walk-in shower. Hotel offered a complimentary breakfast and it was ok. Nothing spectacular alltought.

    « Excellent location and very funky »

    I stayed here due to the location to the main train terminal. Couldn't say enough about the location especially if you're only planning to stay a short period, it's about 300m away from the exit. Takes about 15-20 minutes to walk to some of the closer tourist spots, closer to 45-1hour if you're walking to the Vatican etc The room was quite nice, very funky with the lighting and the bathroom was near with the waterfall shower head. My only qualm with the place is that I booked a king room and got the usual 2 singles pushed together. Problem was that there was nothing holding them in place, ending up with me sinking into the hole between them (and I'm 6'3 and 100kgs, so not an easy feat). Also very soft mattresses so if like me you have a bad back, probably not the best. Would definitely stay here again, the staff were super helpful and the breakfast (€3) was well worth it.

    We stayed here for one night prior to boarding a cruise from CVT , the room was clean and very modern. We didn't like the lighting in the room as it was different colours. The bathroom was nice and had a bath which was novel. Breakfast the next morning was okay, not too bad, could have been more selection of juices as it was limited. Would stay again.

    My two granddaughters and I stayed at this hotel while in Rome with a tour group. I was concerned when pre-trip info listed a Best Western hotel because I had stayed at a BW in France several years ago and it wasn't too great. Plus BW doesn't have the best reputation in the States but I found no reason to complain after arrival. It's a nice, clean, serviceable hotel with comfortable beds. Breakfast was the usual European fare with meats, cheeses, etc. The location is a huge plus as it's near the Termini, numerous restaurants, and is close enough to walk to many of the major sites. We'd definitely stay there again.

    I was only staying in Rome for a day and needed a convenient place to crash before my train left the next morning. Wow - this place was great. The staff were really hospitable and friendly. The air conditioner was nice and cold. The location honestly cannot be beat - I was able to walk to and see the Capuchin crypts, Trevi fountain, Forum and Boca de Veritas and have a nice meal in a restaurant in 5 hours . I would definitely stay here on another visit.

    « Updated, clean rooms »

    This hotel is much better than I had expected. This is a Best Western hotel which does not have the highest reputation in the US so my expectations were low. All my expectations were exceeded. The rooms are very much up to date with modern decor, spacious and very clean. The beds are very comfortable. The location close to the termini is convenient if you plan to use the metro or trains. It is within walking distance of the Colosseum if you are an avid walker. It may be a bit far for some.

    The hotel is in an excellent location, right next to the Termini station. We only stayed in this hotel for one night, and wished we had stayed for more.

    Overall, this hotel was a little small. The employee's that worked there was pretty nice and helpful. The rooms were pretty okay. I must admit, the bathroom was a nice size. However, that shower and sink they had was a bit troublesome. Water would get all over the floor, the shower came down from the ceiling, the water would be everywhere. The sink drained a little bit to slow. The breakfast they served the guest was just okay. Overall, it was just okay.

    « Perfect for our first visit to Rome »

    This was our first visit to Rome. Having read some of the reviews, I was a bit concerned about room size, whether the beds would be suitable (mobility issues), whether the breakfast would be a disappointment, whether the staff would be unhelpful.. I needn't have worried. Ok, we may not be seasoned travellers, but we know when something is good and this was very good indeed. Spotlessly clean (a big thumbs up to the housekeeping staff, always smiling and always a friendly "ciao" when we passed them), room temperature was just fine and the beds were so comfy, we both slept like the proverbial logs. The mood lighting is lovely too. Our room overlooked the entrance to the hotel and admittedly, it was noisy when the window was open wide but then again, this is Rome! The traffic is part of what Rome is known for, so if you expect perfect peace, then why stay so close to the Termini? When the window was closed, most of the noise was cut out, I'm a light sleeper and wasn't disturbed. Breakfast was lovely, with a very wide choice of fruits, cereals, yoghurts, pancakes, cold meats and cheeses, salads, absolutely beautifully cooked creamy scrambled eggs, thinly sliced bacon, smoked sausage, cakes - and thank you to the lovely lady who brought our coffees to our table after seeing my husband had walking difficulty. Reception staff were very helpful, tracking down the bus routes for us, and where to find them. Termini is a few minutes walk away, so it is easy to get around, even for those with a level of mobility issues. The only downside, and I'm hard pressed to find one) is that the bathroom can be a bit dangerous, the shower can splash over the top and the tiles can get slippery - this is maybe something the hotel could think about. All in all, a wonderful holiday. This hotel is certainly one we will come back to.

    « A skip and a step away »

    Although I don't really like modern hotels, I have to say that this hotel is really great. The hotel is kept impeccably clean anywhere you go in the hotel, the staff is friendly and very helpful. The room are a decent size and the beds are very comfortable. The location is opposite the bus and train station which makes it easy to pick-up snacks and drinks if you want to relax in your room between tours. You can easily walk to any site if you generally walk every day, if not, the subway, bus or train is next door. I would have no problems recommending this hotel to anyone.

    « Trendy hotel in the city centre... »

    This is a trendy hotel in the city centre very close to Rome's big central station. You can also easily walk from the hotel into the city centre with all the beautiful historical buildings. The interior is very trendy, modern and clean. I found the service in the hotel - especially in the buffet area - poor. I found their attitude reactive and uninterested instead of being pro-active and customer-friendly. For the rest I enjoyed my stay very much.

    Nice hotel, close to the train and bus stations. Free wi-fi, just ask at reception for the code. Mini bar and tea/coffee making facilities in the room were nice after long days sightseeing. Got room service one night and the meal was nice and not expensive. The room clean, bright and much larger than expected. The hop on hop off tour buses stop directly opposite the hotel. A great location

    « Minimalistic with good location »

    Pros- The location is right next to Termini station meaning you can hop on either metro line within 4 minutes. This made getting around Rome super easy and I never had to use any other transportation besides walking. I also makes it impossible to get lost when wondering Rome. Unlike a lot of hotels in Rome this one is more modern which is primarily why I chose the hotel The concierge was really helpful since I had an early check-in. I emailed the day before I was supposed to arrive and told them I would be in by 10. They said if the room wasn't ready I could put luggage behind desk. So imagine my delight when I arrived and they told me my room was ready and I settled in my room within 5 minutes. Cons- You are not really walking distance to any of the sights, but this is cancelled out by being able to hop on metro. The rooms are small and this is to be expected in Europe unless you pay extra for larger size. The walls were thin and I could hear my neighbors. Fortunately I only crashed in my room at night so this wasn't an issue. Overall this place is minimalistic. If you plan to take advantage of Rome's easy metro and only plan to be in your room to sleep at night. I would recommend this hotel.

    We spent 5 nights here in February. The location is ideal , right opposite the station, taxis, hop on hop off bus etc. Staff are brilliant and in the evening they will provide snacks with drinks. The Aperol Spritz is gorgeous. Rooms are comfortable and children's bed is an actual bed! Decor is lovely and rooms are well equipped and spacious. Breakfast was lovely with a small selection of hot and cold. Quality not quantity but ideal for us. Pay Babbos restaurant a visit just along the street from the hotel. Fabulous food.

    I would stay there again because the location is great, walking distance from Termini, easy to get to and to move around the city, the room is fantastic, modern, clean, comfortable with a great size bathroom, which is hard to find in Europe. All the employees with a horrible attitude from the front desk to the restaurant they urgently need customer service training. The breakfast, if not included in you rate, is very affordable and decent. I really recommend this hotel for the location and the rooms. At the end there's no need to talk to the staff at all.

    « Everything about this hotel is perfect! »

    Everything about this hotel was perfect. From the minute we arrived to when we checked out we were impressed. The bus from the airport dropped us right outside the door, we checked in and our room was ready. The staff were more than friendly. I couldn't complement them enough! Our room was so beautiful. We had a view overlooking the street which we loved. The bedroom was the nicest and most impressive I've ever stayed in. The colour scheme was very modern and there was buttons on the wall to change the colours of the lights in the room from blue, red green or white. This was such a lovely touch. The French Bed was beyond comfortable and the bathroom was amazing. There was a separate section for the shower and toilet which meant one could have privacy in there while someone else used the bath and sink. The location of this hotel is so convenient. It's right beside the station where all the trains and buses leave from. It's also within walking distance of all the major tourist sights! We had breakfast in bed one morning which was delivered exactly on time and was very tasty and cheap! This hotel was definitely great value for money. The staff helped us with every possible query we had, they were very helpful! Can't recommend this hotel enough!

    « Disappointing. Indifferent hospitality. Staff acts like you are in the train station, which is right down the street. »

    The rooms were decent size and the bed was very comfortable. The breakfast was organized by the same people who set up the traffic pattern for Rome. You have to keep going in circles to find what you need. The message we got was " We don't particularly like Americans but we do like their money." The name could be changed from Best Western, to Ought to be Better Western. Don't not ask for help unless you want to be sniffed at.

    This hotel is just down the street from the main tain station in Rome giving you great flexibility to see the whole city. The room size was average. We had a room which overlooked the street but the noise level was ok for sleeping. Breakfast was ok, I have to say that the service on the breakfast was slow. there were many mornings where the eggs were empty the whole time we were there. As a tourist you want to be able to eat when you get there and then leave. The wait staff seemed to ignore you and just do the bear minium. My advise skip breakfast and go down the street to the train station and pick something up.

    « Comfortable stay »

    We stayed for 4 nights. Good location just a few minutes walk from the metro located at the Termini train and bus station. Quite a walk into the heart of the city, around 20 minutes, longer walking back as it is up hill. The metro was cheap and easy to use but only takes you to a few locations in the heart of the city. Importantly there is a metro stop from the hotel to the Vatican and also to the Colosseum. The hotel is very clean, modern and comfortable. The room was very quiet and the bed excellent, a good night sleep every time. Good sized TV in the room but usually too tired at night to watch for long. Staff were pleasant and very helpful at reception with lots of information about getting around and a free map. Breakfast was mainly continental but lots of choice there were also scrambled eggs, sometimes bacon and sausage pieces. The hot food was okay but we tended to have fresh fruit, yoghurt or cereal. There was always ham, cheese, fresh rolls etc. Overall, a very good base to explore the city from. Rome is fantastic, lots and lots of walking, need really good trainers on!

    « In despret need of renovation »

    The hotel is located near the Roma termini metro station (3 mins walk). From there u can quickly get to take a bus or metro to any destination u want, so it gets 5* for location The staff were unfriendly and rude, we arrived there and we were only reminded to pay the city tax, we were not welcomed by the employee who was to busy talking to other colleagues behind the reception desk, when we wanted to check out, the employee hardly spoke English and was also impolite! in the end we wished him a nice weekend :-/ The room was very tiny, double bed was okay (an actual double bed) but not much room for bags or even moving around the room. Under the bed was a huge pile of cabels that looked like it was about to start a fire! Bathroom was clean but really old and needs renovation, bath top was filled with black flecks. The sink was tiny and very unpractical to place belongings around it if ur staying for more than one night, the lighting was very weak in the bathroom and the mirror is far away from person standing in front of it (not practical for make up ladies!!) The mini bar was over filled with huge bottels of water that fell to the floor every time I opened the fridge and no place to cool down ur own beverages. The pillows were okay and comfortable. the possibility to change the lighting colors in the room was actually pointless, the lighting was anyway weak and those different colors did not help at all. Furniture is old and scratched all over. this hotel gets despite all 3* cuz of its location and that we are in Rome and it means it could have been worse -_-

    Modern. Small rooms. Small small. AC didn't work. Our room was 90 degrees. The window opened, But it was in the smokers area which just poured into the room, from outside. Several people brought this up in our group and were told to deal with it. We had to steal toilet paper from the main lobby bathroom. The breakfast wasn't very good. It was in a very shady part of town near the train station, full of vagrants and homeless. We did not feel safe even coming home at night. Would not stay again.

    « Good, clean, modern »

    As a solo traveller, I was nervous about choosing a hotel in Rome. I was recommended this hotel by others, and it fit into my budget quite nicely. Situated a stones throw from Roma Termini, my only grouse is that the location of this hotel is not the nicest - as Termini has some rather interesting folk wandering about, especially at night. The hotel is located at Via Marsala, so very easy to find if you get off at Termini. If you're one of those who likes to walk about, then if you go down Via Cavour, within 20 minutes you can reach the Colosseum. As I arrived early, at around 10 am, my room was not ready. So I left my bags at the hotel (they were very accommodating) and went off to see the Colosseum. My room was the economy sized room, so for 1 person it is perfect. It may get cramped for two people. However, the room is well-lit, extremely modern and the bathroom is super clean. It's also equally modern. I'm big on having nice bathrooms so I was pleased with mine. The breakfast starts at 630am which is perfect if you're an early riser, and want to start your day in Rome early - highly advisable. The breakfast spread is decent, with lots of breads, cheese, meat, cakes, cereal, eggs etc. You can get tea, coffee of your choice and fresh juices too. Very satisfying. As smoking is not permitted (for the most part) in hotel rooms, there is a little garden (smoking area) on the first floor) which is lovely in this weather. There is seating and you could order some snacks and beverages there too. The staff is quite helpful, and do guide you when you need it. They are polite and efficient. I'd recommend this hotel to other travelers, but more so if you are travelling with someone... As a solo traveler as much as I love the hotel, I'm not so keen on the area. But, definitely a good hotel with decent pricing. Oh and you have great free wifi too!

    Stayed here for a week. Nice hotel right next to the termini and bus stop. Modern hotels with mood lighting in the rooms and a nice reasonable mini bar. Flat screen TV and good wifi. Nice bathroom and shower. Staff were helpful and spoke English. Breakfast was good, scrambled egg, hot dogs, bacon, breads & cereal, juices, hit drinks, even rice and tomato sauce! The lunch and dinner menu don't seem to change at all but we didn't eat here so can't comment , lots of nice TA recommended restaurants nearby. Avoid the walk along the termini wall after midnight as lots of homeless on the streets, you would really have no need to be passing it at this time though. The sit airports shuttles bus stop is directly outside the hotel and the perfect means of transport to and from the airport, you can pay on the bus and the timetable is at the stop. Terravision bus only around the corner also. Nice hotel, recommended.

    Stayed 12/02/16 to 15/02/16 as a party of three. Hotel is very well located adjacent to the main Termini station. Convenient for trains, tram and buses as well as limited Metro service. I suspect the hotel was converted from an office building at some point. This shows as bar and restaurant are a bit "odd" and feel like they are not really suited to their current function. Our room was fine. Beds good. Reasonable size. Minibar reasonably priced. Bathroom modern and well sized. Staff were on the whole very good. Reception helpful with travel advice. Bar lady very good. Breakfast was fine but a little chaotic in terms of organisation. Slight surprise was the 6Euro per person per night Rome tax but I am not blaming hotel for this. I would stay here again

We found the reception staff to be lovely and helpful, even giving us a free late check out of 2 pm! The only reason I'm not giving this hotel 5 stars is that the reception area itself is not very inviting or relaxing. Overall though, I'd highly recommend to family and friends looking for a base to explore Rome.

    Its not my first time in Best Western Royal Santina, but this time everything was not going as i request, from the booking of business room and was not clearly mentioned on Hotels.com the differences between the different types of rooms to the refilling of minibar and the bad shower in bathroom and cleaning of the room. Upon arrival i asked the reception to make my room with a street view and she gave me a backyard view with a very small standard room justifying the action that the room overlooking the street is too noisy!! And the room she gave me was quite noisy from my neighborhood ( It was like we were sharing the same room!). Than i asked another one from the reception explaining the bad experience from day one and he promised to upgrade my room to a junior sweet and i have appreciated but unfortunatly he gave me another room little bigger with street view but not a junior sweet!! And i stopped requesting anything from that time. It was rarely to find someone smiling at the reception or even in the breakfast! I spend 6 nights and the experience was quite disappointing.

    If you are looking for a hotel that's in the centre of Rome this is it! We were staying for 3nights to sightsee so we chose this as it was near the main train station (termini) Check in was strictly 2pm however they let us store our luggage and use the wifi whilst we waited. Staff on reception were friendly. The room was perfect, mini bar, mood lights shower room (seemed to be designed for wheelchair users) the only downside was that we booked a double room and this was clearly two separate beds together. We couldn't hear any noise from outside the room. Breakfast was excellent, scrambled eggs, sausage and bacon. Plus toast, cereal, fruit and continental stuff too. Staff all over were very friendly, nothing was too much trouble. The location was literally opposite termini station,so trains/bus/team would have been easy to get however as everything was pretty much walking distance we did that instead. Colosseum was 20mins, Trevi fountain 25mins.

    « The best place to stay when in Rome »

    Going here, you need to see the roadhouse restaurant At the Roma Termini Station just in front of the Salad Bar. When you exit, you will see the DON BOSCO LIBRERIA. If you see this LIbreria, you're on the right exit. Turn left, then you can see big Sign ROYAL SANTINA which is just few minutes from Roma Termini Station. Everything about this hotel is wonderful 1) check in was fast. The receptionist was even helpful on the City Sighseeing hop on Hop off bus. The stop is just outside the hotel. We were expecting a 4 star lobby but its still fine. Not just grand 4 star lobby. You can also avail other tickets from the lobby on which will save you standing for hours at the que for attraction tickets. 2) WIFI was wonderful. We never had issue with wifi connection. Its a fast connection too thats absolutely FREE. Wonderful! 3) BUFFET BREAKFAST was fantastic! Indeed a 4 star breakfast. They have a wide variety of Breakfast. Milk, coffee, juice, cereals, eggs, bacons and etc. breakfast area is wide area which you will never feel crowded even there's plenty of guests on the food area. Staff servers were wonderful too. They keep on filling food. Wonderful! 4) ROOM is spacious, with mini bar, table and a chair with enough compartments for stuff and luggages. BED was perfect. Not too soft or not too hard. We had a good sleep. We didn't here any noise from outside our room. Just perfect! BATHROOM had free toiletries and room was well cleaned. Room has kettle for coffee or tea. 5) CUSTOMER SERVICE -is PERFECT! They accommodated us with all our needs. From your printing needs, umbrella when it's raining, booking us tours/attraction tickets and even went out of their way to accommodate us for our early check out and breakfast at 5:30 AM. Breakfast is available at 6:30 AM but they made sure that 5:30 am buffet breakfast was already available for us. They are such a darling! 6) LOCATION.-is perfect. Just few minutes walk from Roma Termini or to Roma Termini(we arrive here from Venice and going to Milan) Accessible too for tour bus or even just by Metro for going to Vatican, Colosseo, Patine Hall, Roman Forum, Spagna, Trevi Fountain and other sights at Rome. I highly recommend this hotel for your stay at Rome. The perfect choice for us.

    « Convenient location next to Rome Central Train Station »

    I chose this hotel during one of my business trips in Italy when I had the weekend between my meetings with a connecting flight in Rome which was the best opportunity to take advantage and pay a visit to couple of cousins. I chose the hotel as it's about 1 min walking distance from Roma Termini (Rome Central Train Station) which made it easy for me with direct route to/from Rome Airport. The hotel lobby was clean with plenty of seats for people; though very busy as one group of travellers arrived by bus. However, the staff were friendly and helpful. Unfortunately the room was very small with minimum clearance between the bed and other stuuf around such as desk, drawer, side table, etc. The bathroom was also very small. Unfortunately my room did not have any view as it was over the next building. Also, the room did not have much space for storage of luggage and/or places for clothing, very limited for both. The breakfast buffet was surprisingly good with many items for different tastes. Considering the fact that in Rome, most of the hisrotical places are within walking distance of each other, walking and having a comfy shoes are the given; for that reason, the hotel is located in a good spot (e.g. 20 min walking distance to Colosseo or Piazza Venezia). Overall, I may or may not stay in this hotel once again, don't know. Having said that, don't stay here and expecting a real 4 star hotel and services. Probably reasonable price but definitely not meeting a 4 star hotel.

    « What you see is what you get »

    There is always a lingering fear when you book a hotel online that you may find it disappointing on arrival but this hotel was just as described. I stayed in a single room (305), which was just as I saw in online; fair size, coordinated design, unique lighting. Staff were quite friendly and helpful. Location was great as the Termini was just next door and Taxi and Bus services right in front. Rooms were clean. Shower was a bit too small for me. Bath was okay but protruding mixer and fittings made me a bit uncomfortable. All told, I would readily stay at this hotel on my next visit.

    « Take the good with the bad here »

    The Good: --Convenient location right next to Termini --Allowed for a very early Check-in (Much appreciated) --Small but comfortable basic modern Room (King bed) nice natural light, mood lighting is cool --Included breakfast was surprisingly outstanding --Front desk helpful with good advice, friendly, and accommodating --Nice View from window The Bad: --Definitely not what I would consider a 4* hotel. This place is a nice budget option if the price is right, but do not expect anything more. --Bathroom was not cleaned well upon check-in. I won't go into detail but involved toilet, shower, and tub, so poor job with housekeeping on this. The bathroom overall is poorly designed. --Lobby area is shabby, not very clean or comfortable --In room Wifi is free but way too slow Overall, I probably would stay here again. My biggest gripe is I expected it to be a little bit nicer place, but it is a little bit poorly maintained property I get the feeling.

    « Close to Roma Termini »

    It's not in a neighborhood I prefer, but it is 2 blocks from the Roma Termini, which makes it convenient, if you need to take the train or Metro often. Other than that, it's a budget hotel, but clean, nontheless.

    « Great hotel near Termini »

    I stayed one night in the hotel. It is 100 m from Termini railway station. The hotel has a nice lobby with modern forniture. I think it has been recently renovate. The ladies at the desk were kind and helpful. I had a room at the 4th floor with window on the internal yard. The room was not so large but it was well furnished and with a comfortable bed, frigobar, coffee and tea machine, flat tv screen (I did not tur on), wifi (high capacity). THe bathroom was spacious, well equipped and clean. The breakfast at the ground floor is served at the saide at the lobby in really good place and had a large selection of hot and fresh food. I have been enthusiastic of this hotel. I found a special offer at 115 € per night (breakfast included). It is a great price for the area and the quality of the hotel. I hardly recommend this hotel.

    « Good but with cons »

    Modern design but the biggest disadvantage was the lounge. It was too modern to want to relax there. Breakfast could be better. Two single beds united led both of us to the center of the bed. Nothing interesting on foot distance. In The termini you could find everything and all transportation was in 5 minutes walk.

    « Great location »

    Great location, right across the street from the hop on/hop off bus. Room and amenities were very clean. Buffet breakfast was varied with both hot and cold food. Ha Having the hop on/hop off across the road was handy. The hotel was close to all attractions. Staff were very helpful and friendly.

    « An Excellent choice Ideally located with really nice people! Quiet and Modern. »

    We were there fo only 2 nights and so the Hotel is fantastically located. Just at the end of the biggest trainstation with direct access to airport. No time is lost in transport. Also if you like to walk, you are 15 min for trevisa fountain and 20 min from the colosseum and 3 minutes from Piazza Republica. But this distance is full of surprises, nice shops, buildings o you will not feel the distance which is around 1 km max. The hotel is really clean and modern with good insolation of the rooms. No noise at all. The people at the Bar, 2 nice ladies, made us feel like at home. Gazie again to you :)

    « Amazing hotel in Rome »

    Great hotel location. Hop on-off busses across the street. It is the start location of these citytour busses. You can also catch the airport shuttle bus to Fiumcino and Campiano for €6 per person. Great deal!! Also the Termini station is a 3 minute walking distance from the hotel where you can catch metros, public busses and the Leonardo express to the airport. The hotel itself is has very modern furniture, great selection at breakfast and our room was quite on the big site for European standards. So that was beyond our expectations.We had a 3-person room. It was a great hotel that was beyond our expectations and it could not have had a better location!!!!

    « AMAZING: STAFF, LOCATION, ROOMS ALL IN ONE PLACE! »

    Where do I start? The best, friendliest, most courteous staff are found in this hotel. This hotel has a staff that truly goes out of their way for your comfort. The hotel seems like it went a recent renovation and therefore you can expect modern rooms with modern amenities. Location is PRIME and right next to the Termini Station. The breakfast did the job, only downside is everything was repeated every morning for the 4 nights we stayed. I would surely surely stay here again. A special shout-out and big thank you to Mr Andrea (in charge of security at night) who truly went out of his way to make our stay very smooth. Another special shout-out and thank you to Miss Alessia who is very patient, friendly and also went out of her way to make our stay smooth. Book here without hesitation and enjoy the mood lights!

    « Good hotel but poor service »

    Let's start with the good things, great location and clean hotel Bad thing, poor service. Rooms are really hot and air conditioning is not working. When queried with hotel reception was told that they turn off the ac in the winter. So have two choices, open window and get no sleep because of city traffic or close window and get no sleep because of high room temperature. Really has spoilt my break

    « A Good, Convenient Hotel Near Roma Termini Railway Station »

    This is a good place to stay overnight if you are travelling to or from Rome by train. It is only a block from the Roma Termini Railway Station. It is clean and pleasant, and the staff speak English. it has the advantages and disadvantages of a business hotel. It is efficient and comfortable but also impersonal.

    Beautifully decorated. I had room 108. I loved my room. It had coffee/tea in it, refrigerator, safe Free Wi-Fi. Floor carpet and tile. Garden outside my room. Staff very nice. No iron seen, clock radio, wash cloths available, pressed linen towels. Walls were not sound proof. I heard water running in another room. Flat screen TV, Nine English channels, five music channels, couldn't find CNN OR BBC. Sky News available. Very modern high tech rooms. You can paint your dreams by changing the color of the night lite in your room( red, blue, green, white), Air conditioning. Delicious breakfast. Best hotel so far on this trip. Restaurant and bar on site. Hotel close to Train station. Lots of shops and place to eat around the area. Rainforest showers in rooms.

    « Friendly place »

    It is a good hotel with a very friendly staff especially at the reception . One of the few places in Rome where they won't try to steel you or upsell you stuff. Location is great very near the railway station and they offer good rooms as well . The only area that needs improvement is the housekeeping as they don't clean the rooms properly.

    « Good location, below average food »

    The staff were all very pleasant, the rooms were clean and very modern, and the breakfast was included in the cost of the room. However, the breakfast seemed to be catered a bit towards a more western diet. The dinner wasn't memorable or something that I would eat again. The location was very good though, a short jog from the Coliseum, Arch of Constantine, Alter of the Fatherland, etc. Also there is a cute little restaurant/bar around the corner called Living Room Room Cafe and it was really good! Great house wine.

    « Amazing 3 days in Rome at Royal Santina »

    We enjoyed 3 days stay in Rome at the Hotel Royal Santina prior to our Royal Caribbean Cruise to Greece and Turkey. From arrival to departure we were made very welcome by everyone, the room was really nice and breakfast was excellent. We left something in the room on our departure and it was found by the staff and returned safely to us. The location of the Santina is very central beside the Railway and bus station within easy reach for all the attractions around Rome.

    « Good, modern hotel in a very convenient location »

    Dont let the very dated exterior fool you, the outside and the inside are very different! The hotel has been recently refurbished. They are going for a very modern feel with soft colored mood lighting throughout the rooms. The shower was excellent (always good after a flight and the obligatory train trip into Rome) and the bed was comfortable. The free breakfast was handy, as eating out for every single meal in Rome gets very expensive very quickly. The location right next to the train station (take the most northern exit from the station, which should be on your right as you exit your train and you should be able to see the hotel) is very convenient for late arrivals too.

    « Great centrally located hotel »

    Room was exceptional. Clean neat and well laid out. The included breakfast buffet was exceptional as well. BUT the best was the central location and right across from the Hop on Hop off stop. Also located right at the train station. Great two day stay before our cruz.
