Dirty room. Stinky and not washed bed linen. There was no hot water for entire evening. We had stayed there just for few hours (one night, morning flight) - but they had ruined our mood completely. Avoid this place and find something better.

Via Varese is really picturesque, calm and tranquil and max 5 mins from Termini. This hotel is clean and pleasant. The place has security gates - so nice and safe - if you arrive at night you may need to ring the bell on the right hand side of the gatepost as the security gates will be locked, and they'll...

We (my boyfriend and I) stayed here for 4 nights and we simply loved it! It looked exactly the same like on the photos. The location is great, the room was spacious, very modern and clean, with clean towels each day. It had everything we could ask for and that little fridge was a cherry on top. Jewel was an... More

We stayed there because the b&b where we usually stayed in Rome was fully booked and it was a very short notice. First of all, the place is not run by Italians, so if you're looking for something typical this is not the place. Second, they seem to be very disorganized, 3 people to handle 1 check-in. The rooms are... More

The location was good and close to the train station. There was internet, but the connection was spotty. The bathroom was in the room, clean, and spacious. The room itself was big for the price and comfortable with a little fridge as well. There was an elevator and the staff (Jewel) was more than happy to help us with anything... More

My first time writing a review because it's seriously not worth to stay. I have reserved two rooms for the stay. Upon arrival, we had to change rooms, not very convenient at all. Breakfast was at a different place as it's not advertised on details. Impossible to connect on wireless and the host just kept asking us to try again,... More

Jewel went above and beyond to ensure that things went smoothly for me during my stay. He was personable and very professional. I had a problem with my bill after check out but he personally attended to the matter and took care of it promptly.

We booked a ‘Deluxe’ room at the hotel as displayed on the website. On arrival, we were told that there was a problem with the room (they had overbooked) and we would be moved to another room at a hotel around the corner. We were then told we could move into the room we had originally booked in the morning.... More

We stayed there for 3 days 2 nights. There were nine of us. It was our first trip to Rome ever. We booked this place based on the reviews only, so it was quite a gamble. The location is excellent. Roma Termini is just a few minutes away. There are a lot of shops and restaurants in the surrounding neighborhood.... More

The Hotel is 5 minutes away from Rome Termini, but still safe. The rooms are clean and good furnitured, The Bathroom is clean and modern. Babu (the receptionist) took care of us and helped us to find a good place in Firenze. We are thankful for this help. I recommend this Hotel.

A Casa di Penelope" embodies a new concept of Hotel, a unique space with several rooms where art, atmosphere and hospitality blend together and create a fascinating path of sensorial involvement.
