    Good

    Location was great if travelling by train, a little walk to see the sights though. Hotel was clean and nice but very simple. Breakfast was fine.

  • 7.4
    Very good

    Location near to Termini Station, provided you exit Termini on Via Marsala!

    Note that website says it has an elevator - it does but you need to walk up approx 15 steps to get to the level where reception & the elevator is located. Overall good value for a Rome hotel

    Superb

    We really liked this hotel--the reception and hallways did not look so attractive when we first got there, but our room turned out to be very nice--recently renovated, quite spacious, with nice furniture and a modern bathroom. The location is quite good too, 7 min. Walk from Roma Termini train station and metro stop. Good value for money. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

    It would be nice if breakfast was included in the room rate and didn't come at extra cost.

    Very good

    The proximity of the Continentale to the Roma Termini is definitely something to consider when you have to carry your luggages. Very clean, good smell in the room, Staff likable. Good rate.

    Mattresses definitely need to be changed. We had to put a blanket underneath the linen to less feel the springs! No hot water one morning.

    Access to the rooms was good. The breakfast provided was well presented in a nice clean environment. The rooms were very neat and tidy.

    The hotel is in the best location to visit rome. The hotel is two blocks from the metro and three blocks from the train station. The location of this hotel gave you rome at your finger tips. Breakfast was european and good. The room was simple but clean. The staff was very help full.

    Nothing to get upset about. I got what I wanted.

    Fabulous

    Great location (for transport links and the surrounding area had all you needed for food and a take out), very clean, en suite was excellent, hot water on demand, breakfast was acceptable. For the cheapest and best trattoria (always full of locals) go to Luzzis close to the Colosseum opposite Basillica of S Clemente, up via Giovanni? de Laterno?.

    The coffee was poor and breakfast was limited.

    Fabulous

    Great breakfast and it was nice to have a t.v.

    Our room had a pretty terrible smell the entire time, even after being cleaned. We kept the window open much of the time to air it out, despite the cold air. The internet was another downside. There is wireless in the lobby, but it was down for two days of our stay.

    The room was cleaned promptly every day, in a good location to get to everything.

    Superb

    Extremely friendly staff, very helpful. The internet is free (unlike many other locations in Rome), but the access point is literally installed in the dining area...so don't expect to web surf from your room. The room was clean and comfortable. Bathroom is typical (meaning small) for Rome, so don't be surprised coming from the usa. A little noisy with the window open for fresh air at night & the courtyard having a pub nearby and the usual Rome traffic noise, but nothing that soft foam earplugs will not cure. This was a super 2-star room for a brief stay to tour around Rome. Consider taking the Metro to the Castro Pretorio stop, which is an easier pull with rolling luggage than from the Termini to the Hotel. We enjoyed our stay and would stay here again for the access to restaurants, services, the metro, etc. Location and price are the primary reason for staying here.

    Breakfast seemed to be a little costly so we didn't experience their servings (not included in our room rate), but there are a number of bars & cafes where you can get your caffe and pastry in the morning, while on your walk to the Metro to sight see. There is an exceptional pizza rustica right by the Castro Pretorio Metro for lunch returns or early dinner returns to the hotel. No safe in the room.

    location, room size, cleaness, good value-to-money. Good for short stay in Rome city.

    Very good

    The location was very good for train travel (to and from Roma Termini).

    The people on reception were very friendly but twice gave us incorrect or misleading advice about the city, once about a museum being free on a certain day and other about the location of a water fountain nearby. Not big issues but a little annoying.

    Location was perfect. Its 7 minutes walking to main Termini Station. Very safe and not too noisy. Room service was available everyday. Gino at reception was really helpful, he gave lot of tips about experiencing the city.

    Rooms are bit small, but it didn't matter since we were out whole day and needed a clean and neat place to sleep.
