At the begining of September, we booked a room for three persons with one large bed and a little one. The room wasn't very clean but the worst was the bathroom and the kitchen. The bathroom was shared with an other room (what we ignored), the shower was very very small, a dirty curtain replaced the broken shower doors. During... More

The Galilei Guest House is probably the simplest and more comfortable accommodation I ever stayed in a city. When you arrive, there is no sign at the door, so dont panic and press the buzzer with the name and someone will be expecting you. The apartment is on the 4th floor of this amazing old building about 5 minutes walk... More

We absolutely loved staying at this hotel! It's so very Italian! Located in a block of flats - that means you'll enjoy high ceilings, tiled floor and authentic design of rooms, the nice double-door lift and meet native Italian neighbours. The manager, David, is extremely friendly and helpful, providing you with a map and anything you might need while staying... More

Basic room but just what I needed. It has a good location in a quiet area. The breakfast is self-service. When I got there I had to call the owner as there is no reception. A young friendly French guy came after 15 minutes after I called and gave me all the information I needed.

Galilei House is just 10 minutes walk from the Colosseum (either through the gorgeous park or the main road). With a kitchen for personal use and shared bathroom it was great. A cleaner every day ensures it's kept tidy and clean bedding and towels are at hand whenever you need them. David was extremely helpful in the information he gave... More

For 80 euros a night I expect a bit more .. It was shared toilet and bathroom, the kitchen was only room for 3-4 people at time which must be troublesome if the 3 rooms in the hostel wants to eat at the same time . The breakfast was ok, just toast, cake and jam, but ok. I missed having... More

Small unmanned hostel with a well-stocked kitchen and good internet connection, though we had a bit of hassle before we got the WiFi working (tip: use WPS). Good location - easy to walk from the central station, and within walking distance of the Colosseum and the Vatican amongst others. The owner sent us an email on the same day, wanting... More

My boyfriend and I came over from South Africa not knowing what to expect from Italy. If you're looking for 5 star, you won't find it here. But for a place as comfortable, cost effective and perfectly located - look no further. Owners were helpful and weren't at all in your face. We basically had the entire apartment to ourselves....

Staying in Monti

Neighborhood Profile
Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighborhood just west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as it continues to fight for its reputation as a magnet for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season, quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its cobblestone streets. The neighborhood supports unique and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at Piazza della Madonna dei Monti anytime after lunch and you'll always find something going on.
