This hotel has a great location, with huge, clean rooms and a fantastic rooftop breakfast. The views on the roof are breathtaking and the food is great. We were in easy walking distance of the Vatican, Pantheon, Spanish Steps, etc. The hotel clerk advised us to explore Rome at night when we first arrived and gave us a map and... More

The Hotel Genio is ideally located steps from Piazza Navona, arguably one of loveliest piazzas in Rome. The hotel itself is comfortable, with an abundant breakfast on the top floor, adequate room space, an in-room safe, armoire and basic bathroom facilities. My only complaint is that housekeeping(?) took my Vichy hand cream from my room. Granted, it isn't often that... More

Our first trip to Rome so wanted to be near the centre. Genio seems well placed for walking and a 10 EUR ride in a white taxi to the other sights. Recommend Lonely Planet Pocket Rome, tons of useful stuff. Reception staff helpful and english speaking. Hotel has the essentials although a bit worn at the edges. Our back room... More

Our travel agent recommended this quaint hotel located around the corner from the Piazza Navona. The location was outstanding - I walked everywhere! For the five days that I was in Rome, I never once took a bus, metro, or taxi. Everything I wanted to see/do was within a 45-minute walking distance. You can get to the river within two... More

Me and wifey stayed here in October. The location is great. Walking distance to all main attractions. The room was clean. Breakfast was served at the top floor, and the view was stunning! Terrific staff! Downside is that the beds are hard, but I guess that's standard in Italy. You get what you pay for.

This hotel is undoubtedly all about location, location, location in the historic center and walking distance to the Vatican, Forum Romanum and Trastevere. In one hour I had walked to Vatican, crossed back to Piazza Navona, Pantheon, Trevi, The Spanish Steps and sipped a refreshment on Piazza del Popolo. We were initially installed in a room to the back and... More

This hotel is located 1 block from Piazza Navona and within walking distance of most of the sites in Rome. After reading mixed reviews of this hotel I was a little worried before my trip. I ended up loving it. All of the gentleman at the front desk were really friendly, the breakfast was good with lots of choices, and... More

We had a three bed room it was clean and tidy, always had hot water and clean sheets and towels. Air con worked well so we had windows shut at night, we were on the first floor and the road noise wasn't too bad at all considering the location. You did get a little noise from people in corridors but... More

There is no arguing that the location of this hotel is amazing. You can walk everywhere, and there is so much good food here! I do have to say that this definitely isn't a 4 Star hotel. The walls are paper thin; I could hear another room's tv so loudly I thought I turned mine on by mistake, and every... More
