We were pleased to return to this centrally located hotel with spacious rooms, well appointed bathrooms, good service, and a nice breakfast on the rooftop. Within steps to the Piazza Navona, the Genio commands a stellar central location for travelers who wish to explore many of Rome's treasures on foot. Tevi Fountain, the Forum, the Pantheon, and St. Peter's are... More

Just had a weeks stay and overall am very happy. The hotel is in a great location near to many of the main attractions. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was a good size as was the bathroom. Breakfast was fresh and generous with great views over Rome from the breakfast room. We did find the bed a... More

Just returned with a group of 17 people having stayed 5 nights at the Hotel Genio. It is perfectly situated within 15minutes walk of the Vatican, beside Piazza Navona and many and varied restaurants all around. There is a bus stop outside the door as is a taxi rank. The staff are friendly and efficient, rooms allocated quickly to the... More

This is a difficult review to write, because my wife and I have such mixed feelings about the Genio. We chose it for our visit to Rome because of the central location to the main tourist sites we wanted to see, and on that score it would be very hard to beat. The Genio is very close to the Piazza...

Breakfast on the roof terrace with St Peters in the background is a marvellous way to start the day. the staff are excellent and very helpful with lost luggage. The hotel has an excellent location. The rooms are comfortable, they have everything you need. Some noise is inevitable in any city but earplugs deal with this. It's worth a visit.

The Hotel Genio is in a great location - only a 2 minute walk to the beautiful Piazza Navona. It is approximately a 15 minute walk to both the Spanish Steps and the Trevi Fountain. The Pantheon is even closer - less than 10 minutes away. Although the room was small, it was more than adequate. The hotel breakfast, on... More

Lots of pesky details amiss in the room on our arrival in Sept. most of which were addressed by friendly staff but took almost 2h of our precious time. Lack of hot or even warm water (malfunctioning fixer faucets) in both shower and sink irremediable and unacceptable in any hotel, let alone a supposed 4-star.

Location, location, location! A clean and comfortable place to stay. Not for hotel snobs. Friendly helpful staff. And not bad to look at with names like Fabio and Lucca. Anyway...Rome is expensive but what makes this reasonably priced hotel with its typical continental buffet breakfast(more than adequate with steamed milk and coffee) so special is the fact that you can...

We saw this hotel on a website and booked it through an agent because we had previously read that if you book hotels direct in Italy they get double booked etc so for peace of mind we went through the agent.
