As mentioned this hotel is not in a very great area, felt unsafe with lots of locals drinking in the streets. I had a football top 'disappear' from my room but it was possibly my fault for having it laid out in my locked room. Staff lost their ability to speak english when i reported this, but this comes back... More

This was by far the worst accommodation of our trip (as 2 girls). Additionally, it was in a really dodgy area and we did not feel safe. The staff were extremely unfriendly and unwilling to help. The shower also broke on us and we when asked to get it fixed, the front desk were rude and did not help, thus... More

We booked a flight and hotel package and it was cheap so I did not have high expectations for the hotel. I think it was good value for what we paid but it one had booked on the basis of the hotel web site you would have been very disappointed. It was adequate as a place to rest your head... More

Hotel was cheap, but clean, our room was more than adequate. Hotel contacted me by email before we left home to offer airport pickup, and as we were a group of 6 travelling we took up the offer and split the cost , so it was reasonably priced and easier than trying to find your way into Rome. Breakfast on... More

Trying to be fair here...It was cheap and we got what we paid for. The hotel website photos were certainly taken by a talented photographer. The bed was comfortable. The WiFi was great. Breakfast was serviceable and coffee was good. Location really close to train station. Hotel was a little rundown and shabby. A few long dark hairs amongst the... More

As other people remarked, the Kennedy Hotel has a very convenient position. But it is situated at a crossroads of two streets with heavy traffic, night and day, and you have plenty of noise and difficulty to get a real good sleep. Besides, right under of my room (number 112) window were three big size dustbins and early in the... More

We booked this hotel as part of a package, based on price and location. The location is excellent for Termini railway station and the bus terminus but there are some other advantages such as the proximity of restaurants just out side the front door. There were some people hanging out in the street but we didn't bother them and they... More

The benefit of staying at the Hotel Kennedy is that it's near the Central Train Station. A very easy short walk which is a plus given the exorbitant prices taxi's charge at the Station. That part of town is a bit seedy. Not the cleanest and the element is questionable. However, we found it to be the most convenient area... More

We used the Kennedy Hotel as our base while in Rome between our travels to Southern and Northern Italy. The staff were lovely. The first morning we stayed we had an early tour booked before breakfast started but they ensured we had a croissant to take away with us. The hotel is located one street back for the train station... More
