We were married in April 2014, 3 days before we went to Rome, we booked the Kennedy hotel as it was so reasonably priced and it was so close to all the sights that we wanted to see in Rome. It was also very close to the termini station, we took a trip on the fast train down to Florence... More

Our travel agent booked this property for us in Rome as part of our Italy itinerary. The property is well located - and the good parts end there. The building is seedy and the area in which it is located is shabby and very touristy. The bedrooms are very average, the air conditioners semi-functional, the baths cramped and the linen... More

This hotel is situated close to the Rome train station which is handy if you're catching the train but it also means you are staying in the ghetto part of Roma. The filthy streets are littered with unsavoury types so watch for pick pockets. You will need to take a taxi to find a meal that won't result in an... More

We booked this hotel purely for it's location and not knowing the city wanted to be as close to the station as possible. The holel staff were very nice, could not be more helpful. We asked for a change of room due to bath being stained and the views to the yard. We were re-located to a luxury room, which... More

Quite nice hotel close to Termini Station. Clean, comfortable, air-conditioned. Helpful staff with maps and extra information. The shower fitting was only hand-held. It would be much better if hotels could just add another hook higher up the wall to enable a hands-free shower. Free wifi. Close to some very nice restaurants for dinner.

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
