The place is definitely not a hotel but rather rooms to let. So if you are expecting hotel services you will probably be disappointed. The room was too small for four people. It was actually a triple room with an extra "bed" (it was more like a matress). However, Jewel, one of the people in charge, was very kind and... More

This one depends on luck. In our 3 nights stay we tried 2 rooms. Both on level 1, same level as the recep. The first was a small room in a separate area with the recep, low privacy but at least wifi and toilets were good. The second room for the last night was a much much big room just... More

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.

Official Description (provided by the 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. Design... Comfort... Innovation... Location... Vision...every room is an open space designed to be a synthesis that gives a broad liberty of expression to our guests embraced by the milky white of our industrial resin floor. Hands... Mouth... Ears... Nose... Eyes... every room is characterized and become a unique space defined by the details that live within it: original works of art made of Bakelite and designed by Giovanni Lamorgese in every bedroom, vintage objects shown in the hall. The building is located in the Umbertin area very close to Termini station, 10 minutes by walk from the main important monuments of Rome like the Colosseum an the Roman Forum. The Vatican, the Spanish steps, Trevi Fontain, Piazza Navona are all no more than 15 minutes away from the hotel on public transport. To get to Fiumicino airport it takes 30 minutes by train from Termini station. ... more   less
