Four friends and I recently stayed here for 5 nights. The front desk were really helpful and friendly. The room that my friend and I were in had issues with the hot water however the staff were helpful in trying to fixing it. The location is great, only 5 minutes walk to either the Termini or the Republica stations. We... More

We loved the terrace with its olive and pomogranite trees ; a great place to chill out. There is a very good restaurant and bar/ lounge area on the first floor.The street is relatively quiet because it is one way and motor cycles and Vespas comprise most of the traffic. Several tourist attractions and good restaurant s are close by.... More

Just arrived back from 4 nights here. The hotel is in a great location 5 mins walk from Termini and close to the Opera House. The staff are friendly enough and helpful but as mentioned in other reviews this is more like a 3 star hotel our room was fine but very dark overlooking a courtyard. The breakfast are on... More

About a ten minute walk from the train station. Lovely reception staff, and most helpful. We had a superior room, and it was spacious...a comfortable king sized bed, with a large bathroom, lots of towels, and lots of space for clothing. Spotlessly clean. We were on the back side, and there was no noise! The breakfast offering was different- grilled... More

We were given a double room 504 and it wasn't great, dusty and lots of mould in the shower. Also our room faced a building so privacy was compromised. We woke to blaring music and called reception who advised it wasn't the hotel yet a few minutes later the music was turned off. coincidental? We opened the curtains and were... More

Pass on rm. 602 on 2nd floor. Some mold in bathroom and looks a bit rundown. I did see the room next door 601, looks so much better, cleaner. If I had this room I'd have given another star. There was a fridge in room as well as a safe and bed was comfortable. Back to the bathroom, the mold... More

Excellent service by staff. We arrived before checkin at 2pm but was told our room would be ready by 1pm (big mistake). Sheets hadn't been changed on beds but bathroom as clean as it could be (mould in the corners of shower). Decor very tired. On the plus side once pointed out that sheets needed to be changed, staff sent... More

Thanks for your suggestion We provided to start a specific activity of maintenance to remove every trace of mould, as you call it. It's the silicone that took water inside and became black. Now we are removing it to reinstall it. Sorry to hear about staff not speaking english. Mario, the night auditor, is the weakest in English but we... More

We had two overnight stays in Rex at the beginning and end of our Italian holiday. Staff could not have been more friendly, efficient and helpful on every occasion and had an excellent command of English. They are one of the main strengths of the hotel. The location is on a fairly busy street but we found that our rooms... More

Close to Termini station (10 minute walk) with access to Metro, buses, trams & of course trains (including the Da Vinci express to the airport). Walking distance to the Colosseum/Forum area or to Spanish Steps. Our twin room was nice, average size, excellent air-conditioning (which was important!). Shower over bath. Furnishings & fittings were a touch dated perhaps but it... More

Really thanks for you 'solid 3,5' It's a way to continue to do our best and deserve, always and with every guest, a 4. Just a particular. We do state about the food, not because we do have a restaurant inside. No, it doesn't change anything: the restaurant is actually a Michelin starred and just an alternative dinner for someone...

Hotel Rex is a good value for the price we paid. Quick overview: Reception: very friendly staff, fluent in English, provided welcome packet with recommended restaurants that the locals frequent (which were great!) and other info such as public transportation, etc. The only thing I wasn't a fan of was the fact that you leave your key with reception when...
