I'm not of the opinion that this hotel can be classed as 4 star. We booked through Hotwire and we're disappointed. The hotel needs an extensive update. Room was dated, and the wifi in room unusable. The minibar in the room was positioned as a bedside table and there was a stale smell in both our room and the elevator.... More

It's 4 am. I woke up sweating. A/C stopped working hrs ago. Called to complain. Front desk said "we shut off A/C between 1am to 6 am". Do they mention that on their website ? I'm checking both their web site and hotels.com but I don't see it anywhere. If I knew this, I wouldn't have booked this hotel. I... More

The rooms were very comfortable with big bathrooms. The rooms were equipped with tea and coffee maker which was very... More

From check in to check out, hotel Rex was the perfect hotel for a week in Rome. Tucked away from the tourist throng, this is a gem of a hotel. Clean, comfortable, welcoming and friendly. Comfortable rooms (504) with firm mattress, clean bedding daily, wardrobe, desk and a mini bar, the main room was elegant, classy and plush. Shutters over... More

A great hotel with sublime service - and the price was very fair! Located only 5 min. walk from the Autostradale busstop (from airport). Breakfast was very good. Only real letdown was the Wifi, that was slooooow!! I highly recommend staying at the Rex.

We booked this hotel as a hotwire secret deal. The hotel is nice and in a good location we had no troubles getting around from where it is located. There is breakfast in the morning which has something for everyone. We barely spent time in the room other then sleeping but after a long day of walking and being on... More

It's not a cheap hotel but definitely 3 star not 4. Receptionists were great, lobby is small and raggedy. Room had a good size and clean. Elevators were old and very slow. They don't have any ice machines and their little dysfunctional restaurant rejected to give me ice by saying that their ice machine was broken. I did not say... More

We were in Rome for one day pre-cruise with some family. They had arrived two days earlier & they had stayed at this property two years earlier. We chose the property for proximity to Termini train station (a bit of a shady area) as that was how we were going to the cruise port. We arrived early from our flight... More

We arrived in Rome by train after a cruise to spend one night before returning home. Hotel Rex is just a 5-6 minute walk from the central 'Termini' train station and the walk is not bad to do even with luggage (wide sidewalks most of the way). Upon arrival front desk staff were very friendly and helpful, providing us with... More
