Great location and spacious, clean room. Free breakfast was a nice value too. No air conditioning in October so room was unpleasantly warm, especially during the day. Staff was not interested in helping us for the most part.
Just a perfect place to stay, gonna come back if ever go to Roma! Super helpful staff! Perfect location! 100 m. from the Covour Metro Station Exit! The TV's in the room are kind of out of date looking (Not flat screen)
Room was great! Cocktails were great! Staff friendly and helpful! Breakfast provided was great! The restaurant had beautiful food (Try the Gnocchi) !
fresh and softer bread / breadrolls for breakfast would be a bonus for a **** hotel
Pleasant & helpful staff. Realxed atmosphere. Good location for sightseeing. Breakfast well presented & plentiful.
The hotel location is super, 5 minutes walking from the Colosseum. Metro is 2 minutes as well.Hotel personal and breakfast service is quite good. The hotel rooms are bit old and all the furniture and other eqipments are quite used. The safe in the room is too small for a laptop. There is only one big cover on the double bed.
The staff members at the hotel desk were very helpful. Breakfast was better than I would have thought given some bad reviews at booking.com. The Colosseum is really closeby.
It's near most of the touristic places in Rome, you can easily walk to the Colleseum and ancient rome; A metro station is 2min far from the Hotel, a day in the vatican is easily done; and you can take the bus and arrive to the famous shopping street Via del Corso in Rome; in addition, a big buffet for the breakfast is served every day, very clean, very tasty, many choices.. the service of the Hotel is very good; the people working there are very helpfull and talk english; they help you and explain to you about the city and the places you can go to, especially if you are going without a guide or a tour; special tours are made every day from the hotel for the persons that would like to join any tour. At night, lots of noises from outside, where there is a street at one side of the Hotel, many people walk, dine, drink, etc... too much noise, but we used to it later, and it stops at 1h am, so not really a problem;
I believe the ratio quality/price is out of range. The hotel should not be rated as 4 stars. Rooms are not up to standards and facilities are poor.
We had a big problem with very noisy people in the room next door - still partying at 4am. We didn't get much sleep.
room was comfortable, big and relaxed breakfast was not good enough.
Pretty much everything. Nothing
Brekfast, view from terrace
Very clean. Staff friendly. Location next to colosseum was superb, would definately visit again
Recently renovated and very modern. This was our first experience with a Bed and Breakfast and found it to be a wonderful alternative. You loose some amenities like a business center or gym but you receive a much more personalized and comfortable experience. They were very helpful in making reservations and general assistance. This was our first international traveling experience and they were very accommodating at all hours of the day/night. They provide a beautiful continental breakfast on their rooftop restaurant that overlooks the coliseum. The only concern is that their restaurant is very high end and when you look for eggs or any items that supplement the free continental breakfast, it can be very expensive.
amazing Colosseum view, a wonderful restaurant and definetelly a beautiful place to stay i was expecting a bit more of housekeeping in the room
The view of the Colusseum from the hotel room and rooftop restaurant was breathtaking.
The hotel staff was excellent. Our loft was two blocks from the main hotel and could easily have been walk-able but the hotel had a cab take us and luggage to the loft as well as arranged for us to be picked up again and returned to the hotel the next morning. The view from the hotel terrace was spectacular. The Roman Colosseum was right across the street and made a lovely backdrop for our wonderful dinner. The loft apt. that we stayed in was stunning and the 4 of us were very comfortable staying there. Our stay at Hotel Gladiatori was the last night of our two week Italy visit and it made for the perfect ending to a wonderful trip.
Great location next to the Colosseum. Friendly, helpful staff. Loft is spacious and suit for a family. Loft was located 5 min from the main hotel.
The view of the colosseum from our room The rooftop terrace for breakfast, drinks, light lunch etc is a wonderful place to hang out. The staff were friendly, professional and welcoming. The Metro runs along the street underground. The noise and the vibration were very disruptive at night especially on the lower floors. So ask for rooms on the 3rd and 4th floors. They said that they complained to the city to do something.
The staff was professional and courteous. The room was a good size and very pleasant with an excellent view. The rooftop dining was excellent. none
The central location to visit all the historical sites The only downside was the insufficient staff for the rooftop bar/snack area. on our visit the area was busy with guests but only a single staff member to serve all.
It was good that the hotel provided the customers with two bottles of water per person on each day and also a fridge in the room. The shower cubicle was too small and the room could have been bigger considering the price we were charged per night.
Mostly everything The key continually stopped working resulting in going to the hotel room then having to trudge back to reception to have it reactivated. This happened six times in five days.
That you recommend a tour and was excellent Just the size of the bathroom, it was too small
location and friendly personel Lots of stains on the carpet, wall and sofa (where our daughter slept). Holes in the door. Fungus in the bathroom and a leaking tap which caused a lack of pressure so the swich to the shower didn't work. When insisting on a solution, after the receptionist sugestion to shower in the morning, I got acces to a 1p room to use the shower, but that one was so small my head hit the shower and I couldn't bend to wash my feet. It felt like a cheap motel in stead of a 4 star hotel.
Excellent staff, good food facilities and roof top pool lovely Hotel room was small and carpets were quite dirty. Shower very small, we are very slim people and just got in it!!
staff was very helpfully, good service and most magnificent view at Colosseum ! shower is a little bit small !
Close to Colosseum and Roman Forum. Staff were friendly enough, but the hotel does not live up to Mercure's reputation at all. The breakfast is not worth the 15 Euros (burnt scrambled egg, for example, is not appertising) and you can hear everything from lifts going up and down to traffic noise from the room far too clearly. Then there's the matter of the air-conditioning being switched off in October, even if the days are still very warm. Not what it is cracked up to be.
The pool on the top of the building was nice, although small. Great view from our room and the top of the building of the Colosseum. Bar area was nice with a good selection. Staff very all helpful and friendly. Our air conditioning leaked and they moved us immediately. Easy access to all the bus routes. Pool was busy and there is very little seating area. Hotel was quite expensive for what you got. Breakfast was average.
Good location. Bar on the roof with a view on Colosseo. Terrible scent in the rooms (we were two families and have tried 3 rooms), lack of fresh air in the rooms due to the glass panels, that cover the windows. Furniture is quite old. Bath equipment is old and rather unpleasant to use. Rather hard beds.
The english speaking staff were very helpful. Room very pleasent and the hotel is in atmospheric part of the city no.
The room was very good, good breakfast and it is near metro station. na
The front desk staff was exceptional. The interior design was beautiful, the location was absolutely perfect - right next to the metro and colosseum. There were many (well priced) local shops and restaurants, but there weren't too many other tourists. They had great wireless internet connection as well. The only thing we were not very impressed about was that there was construction happening on the roof above our room - which was fine during regular hours, but one moring we wanted to sleep in and it had started at 7:30 (hammering right above our heads). All else was great, however.
Hotel staff, dislocation room
We were upgraded from the annex to the main building so can't comment on the annex. A very simple but good quality breakfast served each morning. The decor and furnishings very tasteful, comfortable bed. The location is terrific, and the local restaurants seemed like they were there for the locals not just tourists. The hotel is small and compact as was the room. The room lacked natural light, and the shower was a bit on the small side, but manageable.
The fact that the staff were always available, very polite with a pleasant disposition, and helpful.
Location was perfect! It was clean and staff was friendly although sometimes service was slow because staff appeared to be limited. Although the hotel was quite adequate and I would stay there again for location alone, it was not exactly up to the standard I would expect for the price that was paid.
Great location, beds were comfy, rooms were nice.
Staff were very accomadating and made our stay a relaxing one. Hotel gives the impression of having more luxury on website than actual during visit. Room alot smaller than expected and dining facilities poor.
The location of the hotel was great, just a few hundered metres away from the collosium. The staff were very friendly and helpful.
most wonderful staff so wonderful food so wonderful the location so wonderful highly rec this hotel not one thing
Friendliness of the hotel staff, they are a real asset to the hotel. Water pressure in the shower in my room could have been higher, but on the plus side they replaced the shower head without me even needing to ask and that did improve things.
The room was very nicely decorated and comfortable. The staff in the breakfast room always had smiles on their faces and were so hospitable...a nice way to start the day. The front desk staff answered any questions we had and the map of Rome they gave us on the first day came in very handy. After taking a long walk on the first day and then returned to the room, seeing the slippers placed by the side of the bed was such a comforting sight. Customer service was exemplary. The location, too, was convenient to so many attractions, as we chose to do a lot of walking. Thank you for a lovely stay!
The rooms were very well appointed and staff were very attentive
The friendly and efficient staff and the location of the hotel very near the centre of Rome yet in a pleasant place. While they served a range of very good snacks during day and evening they had no restaurant. However there were plenty of places round about to eat.
Location, staff readiness to help,
Helpfulness of staff . Location of hotel great . Room really clean and comfortable . Breakfast ok . terrace and facilities excellent.
Very nice 4* hotel with style and atmosphere; very friendly staff. Lovely terraces. Small details to make this hotel even better: - more international tv channels (eurosport, etc.) - it would be nice to have the free internet in the lobby for a quick use
All the staff were extremely friendly and helpful . The breakfasts were lovely and the staff in the dining area always smiling and polite . The hotel was in a good location , close to the attractions but nice and peaceful . We had booked a superior doube room and i felt for the price the room was slightly on the small side.
locality - staff - area - already recommended to friends
It was perfectly positioned for exploring Rome I enquired about returning in October with my wife, I would not pay the full rate of 340 euros per night, so it looks like Prague
A good quiet room with a good location Restaurant not open and breakfast was a shambles. therefore overpriced.
Extremely clean rooms, garden tables for dining outside were delightful, breakfast & lunch meals were local and wonderfully presented We couldn't understand dinner - we waited to be seated but were ignored - it seemed to be some sort of happy hour/buffet/private function despite the menu being visible on a board. Only one conceirge was helpful/knowledgable with regard sightseeing directions.
the central location, close to most of the main historic sights, very clean and new accommadation ,staff allways helpfull. none
very central for walking to and from city centre, also walking distance to Trastevere.
New hotel with in a very good location. Also includes a very good restaurtant.
fantastic loaction - walking distance to many sites
Brilliant location - within walking distance of all the landmarks except the Vatican. Given an upgrade on check-in but the room was a huge disappointment. 2 single beds on mezzanine floor, a double sofa bed downstairs with a hard frame, one bedside table and no bedside lights. But happily Reception did move us next morning.
Location, Location, Location! Location for value was unbeatable! Maybe a little more hominess - but that is just to be critical. The rooms the location and the staff were off the charts!!!
The hotel is really near everything ( coliseum, testevere, vatican (25 min walking), piazza novona ( 25 min walking ). Great staff and really polite. The bathroom is a like smaller, but it works
Everything we expected we got and then some. Food is excellent. The roof top bar was a delight at sunset. The staff was more than helpful in every way. Wish I could remember their names, they're first class. Location is great. The only con we had was the mattress was very stiff.
Fabulous location. Great rooftop terrace. Staff is not especially friendly. We were never able to get our "free" drinks at the American Bar.
Unique atmosphere of the hotel at the center of Rome
The location of the Forum is truly outstanding. The family room is great for a family of 4 and the restaurant is lovely - great food and great view The wifi network doesn't work and is expensive if it did.
The staff was very friendly and was very efficient to answer all our questions. The hotel it self is beautiful and the view is fantastic. The location of the hotel is perfect.
A good view of Roman Forum from the room. A good restaurant and service. Breakfast can be a little bit better but fresh orange juice was nice.
The location is excellent, and the view from the restaurant is one of the best in Rome. Staff were excellent.
The standard of the cuisine and the ambience of the rooftop bar
I loved just everyting about the Forum hotel, fantastic staff, warm reception and lovely food - what more could you ask for no - just everything was fantastic
Superb location, RIGHT next to The Forum, just blocks from The Colosseum and adjacent to several restaurants. Standard rooms run a bit small, as all classic European hotels do, but was clean n cozy and felt like home in no time. Top floor restaurant was good and panoramic view was excellent. The true gem at this hotel, however, was the amazing staff, who were all pleasant and helpful and genuinely offered hospitality every single time I came into contact with any of them. Definitely a smaller, boutique style property but the excellent staff n superb location make Hotel Forum top notch. Recommended. Would stay again.
The location is nice. I use to travel extensively for work, and I can tell you it is the worst value for money hotel I have ever stayed in. The room had the tiniest bed I ever saw and the TV screen very small. It could be cleaner. It had a very modest breakfast with little choices. The receptionist was really rude.
central location the restaurant was above us, and we couldn!t sleep all night, because of the noise.
The best feature is the rooftop terrace Breakfast is very very basic
The location of the hotel was very good and it provided all the necessary requirements.
Breakfast as there was a selection of food to choose from. Everything, the location was in a unsafe place and the staff were rude. The room was disgraceful as the shower was full of limescale the toilet was broken and I actually felt disgusted at the sight of the facilities. It was definately not worth the money I paid for.
staff were very helpful and any problems e.g anything not working in the room were attended to immediately. rooms were cleaned everyday with clean linen and towels provided - excellent.
Convienence to places we wanted to see
Location was great... The hotel is up a hill. It killed me everytime. When you first walk into the room you can smell an odor, like no one ever stayed there before. Very small but normal for europe. Stain on carpet...ewww! Stains on walls...ewww! Mold and mildew around the corners of tub. When you flush the sound from the flush last pretty long.REALLY LONG...i repeat. Wall is very thin can hear actual conversation. Not being funny. The bar is small, lets put it like this..one guy does everything. The breskfest was italy breskfest. Cant really complain about it all I have to say is I did not eat it. I went to a donor stand around the corner. Now that was good.
afriendly and relaxed atmosphere in a well located hotel considering the attractions in the neighbourhood.
Cheap internet. The breakfast was really poor. No meat/cheese. Small variety of bread/croissants. No toast. Cereal with yohgurt or milk (was gone off on one day). The breakfast staff were rude.
the view from the roof top
It was close to the train station as well as major sites. Was on a quiet street in residental area. Resturants were close a hand. We had a room which open to a private courtyard. Roof also had a garden setting. Breakfast was good each morning.
This is a great small hotel. The staff were very hosptiable and and informative regarding sightseeing tips and directions. Breakfast was plentiful and good. Location is excellent being near Colosseum, Forum, and ease of bus and metro stops. All was good.
A Friendly, family-owned hotel, excellent for my 16 yr old son and me. Well-sited, close to the city centre, in a quiet one-way street; shops, restaurants and gelateria all close at hand. Handy for public transport (metro or bus) to the Vatican. Hotel has been modernised; clean and comfortable twin room, reasonable size, air-con, double-glazed. Rooftop breakfast buffet, ample to eat. Helpful and cheerful staff. We would certainly come back here.
Convenient location. Nice clean functional rooms. Great staff. Good deal.
good breakfast, in a good area, kind people
Location, within walking distance of almost all main tourist attractions in Rome. Well fitted out, friendly, helpful staff.
Location, breakfast accomodation
Friendly, helpful staff, clean room, good breakfast
The location of this hotel in relation to all the sights of Rome is fantastic. We enjoyed the rooftop breakfast room and the standard of the breakfast. The room and its bathrom were very spacious and it's a short walk to the metro.
polite and friendly English speaking staff, nice single room, the room has a safe, good breakfast (excellent cappuccino), fairly good location within walking distance to major attractions (transport almost never used, just for a trip to a football match at the Olympic Stadium and the Vatican ), a quiet street outside the hotel in the evening, a good selection of inexpensive restaurants near the hotel (especially like to mention DoDo) minor flaws which is not affected the overall positive impression: the water temperature in the shower is not very well regulated (I had to wait some time before the water reaches the desired temperature), towels are too thin, more like a sheet than bath towels, TV is blocked when switching to some channels
Room was tiny - unlike other hotels in the area. Staff neglected to tell us about an additional fee when they summoned a taxi for us. We left early in the a.m. and they did accommodate us with breakfast on the go.
nothing The room was small, there was mold on the wall in the bathroom, the bathroom facilities were very cramped, shower almost unusable, stains on the wall paper that was also pealing off due to age, bedding not clean, the breakfast was not even worth the fact that it was included in the price, the internet conection was ok and the only thing that made it worth paying for was to find another hotel...
Polite helpful staff, clean room, no-smoking hotel, location close to metro and sights.
very central within walking distance to most tourist destinations.
the hotel staff was very kind It was a not smoking hotel
Great location next to the Colleseum. Excellent access to metro and bus. Walking distance from most major sights. Clean, comfortable rooms.
Central location, near to major historical sites. Breakfast availability. Reception staff not always quick to respond, though generally helpful.
Very good situation of the hotel, good breakfast in your room, very clean, quiet, beautiful furniture, polite service
staff were charming and helpful. breakfast is brought to the room. beside the forum and colleseum. brilliant location no bar or dining room.
very nice and quiet room. basic breakfast.
good location poor breakfast
Good location, basic accomodation, well maintained and clean. Very friendly and helpful staff. Dreadful wifi connection.
great location. On a noisy road
The personal level of services was outstanding. I felt as if I was staying with family. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone. Lack of wifi in the rooms but a cable was provided upon request
The owner and Rosanna were very helpful. That is the best thing of all. The owner suggested a small museum that was a pure delight. The room was comfortable and large and tastefully furnished. They needed written instructions for the remote controls. They quickly review the instructions on two different remotes; however, the night clerk nor I could figure out how to change the language to English. They need a hook for a towel outside of the shower not across the room from it. Otherwise all was lovely.
My daughter and I stayed just one night at the Caesar House. It was an easy walk from the train and well located near the Colluseum. The staff there was accessible and amazingly helpful. The breakfast was abundant and delicious. We highly recommend it.
The staff were charming and helpful, and the location (within minutes' walk of the Forum and the Colosseum) excellent.
The helpfulness of the staff
1 nigth of 7 was very noisy (loud music untill 3 in the morning)
The terrasse at our room There is an old chair on the terrasse, this chair is m uch too big and shall be taken away
The excellent possibility to reach the most beautiful places of Rome on foot, good breakfast and very friendly staff. We occupied the appartment near the hotel, there was some old non-used broken furniture in the room. During our stay the weather was cold and we felt the stark draught from the windows.
I liked the staff and the location. Room was kind of small and shower was very small.
The location was great for traveling around the city. There was also a great place to eat right down the street. The breakfast was nothing impressive.
Proximity to major attractions. No tea/coffee making facilities in the room, no in room safe and hot water supply was intermittent.
The staff were excellent and were full of useful information, we were supplied with a map on checking in, which proved invaluable. The hotel has an excellent location, and apart from the Vatican, which was quite a walk...(we were told about public transport, so it was our choice)!, all sites of interest were in very close proximity. Our room was spotless on arrival, and maintained in the same manner throughout our stay. Many excellent eateries amoung the web of cobbled streets which surround the hotel, and whilst the hotel does not actively promote any individual restaurants, they do give very good advice on how to avoid the tourist "rip off" traders. I would certainly recomend the Grifo to people I like ! lack of kettle in room
helpful staff, good breakfast, great location near to colosseo Room sound isolation not good, can hear people talking and cars noise. breakfast room is too small only got 7 tables
The staff were very helpful, and friendly. Our accomodations were lovely. The hotel is centrally located and there is a bus stop across the street, with the Metro just down the street. We were very pleased.
