OK, this hotel gets its share of bad wraps but for us it is what we expected I.e. a three star hotel handy to all the sights in Rome. Given that, the only issue had was with the size and configuration of the bathroom which required a fair degree of dexterity to use the toilet and shower. That aside the... More

The friendly English speaking front desk staff were efficient. We liked that the breakfast allowed us more than one coffee and also had some fruit and yogurt available for those who prefer a healthier start to the day. The room was basic and clean. The shower is very small with fixed doors, so may not work for a fuller figure.... More

We stayed five nights at the Kennedy Hotel in May. We chose to stay in the annex which is about a 2 minute walk from the main hotel. We were taken to the annex by a staff member because it was raining. We were grateful as it might have been hard to find otherwise. The area felt a bit dodgy... More

We chose the Kennedy based on its proximity to the railway station. In that respect it was an excellent location, but I did not really feel safe in the area. The hotel itself is quite old and a bit run-down, with creaking floorboards and a confusing layout. Our room, a double on the third floor, was reached by a lift... More

We stayed in an annex down the road but still part of the Kennedy Hotel. Good sized room and bathroom with hair drier, safe, air conditioning, comfortable bed and plenty of extra blankets and pillows. The down side is it overlooked the Termini train statation and it was noisy in the evening but the upside of the location was we... More

We stayed one night out of the four nights we had booked. You could not move in the room with your Luggage. That area we where told was not a safe area to stay, I was mugged just around the corner on our first night, was worth the extra $1.000 bucks just to feel safe, We would not recommend this... More

The Kennedy Hotel is located close to the train terminal. That is where any value in this hotel ends and is only of any value if you travel to/from Rome by train. We booked two rooms through a travel agent - one for our two adult daughters and one for my wife and myself. The booking was for four nights.,... More

I found this hotel to be average, neither bad nor good. On the negative side; there was no bar, restaurant or hair drier. There was a continental breakfast of cereals, pastries, good coffee, fruit, cheeses, yogurts, jams, honey etc. On the positive side, it has a very central and convenient location for the Termini station, bus station and various historic...

Italy and especially Rome is an expensive place for tourists. But the hotel itself was a paradise for those who look for an economic bed and breakfast. Sleep eat and than go out, that simple do not ask for more. Perfect location, and good staff that's all.
