Stayed here at the end of february. Staff were all pleasant, accommodating and helpful. At first had a single bed room. Asked to be upgraded as i wanted a double bed and got moved to the renovated section which was much nicer and modern. The location was fantastic. Everywhere that I needed to go was within walking distance.

You need to go a long way to beat this level of customer service, Laura on reception along with her colleagues were exceptional, always smiling and more than willing to help. We arrived at this hotel later than expected, after calling them to explain we were going to be late, we arrived to champagne and canapés. The room was adequate... More

I arrived at The Rex by chance... while seeking my 'regular' hotel in Rome, which was booked for that day. Hotel Rex was a pleasant surprise... employees are the friendliest ones ever. The location is wonderful (via nazionale and Via Torino). Close to everything you might need. Beautiful area to walk around. Perfect for business meetings also. And the breakfast... More

The location is okay and there are lots of restaurants nearby. We took the train from the airport to Termini station and walked about five blocks to the hotel. The room was tiny but functional and almost totally dark. Our room was 604 on the third floor and the shutters were closed, so it was dark. Breakfast was fine and... More

My wife and I wanted a 4 night tourist stay in Rome so selected this hotel. We found it convenient with every amenity we needed for a comfortable stay. There were no frills and it was not pretentious but we had no complaints and it was ideally placed as a base for seeing the sights. Most places were within easy... More

I just came back from my Rome trip. The stay in this Hotel was more then a dissappointment. I was choosing this Hotel for a stay based on the 4*, the avarange 8,0 range on Tripadvisor and Booking.com and the location. This is not a 4* Hotel. Maybe it was way back in 1968 but not in 2014. The rooms... More

What makes this hotel a good find is the friendliness of the staff and the attention to detail towards the guests' needs. I wouldn't call it a 4 star, but it serves it's purpose for a few days' stay. Decent breakfast and the location is convenient, close to the main Termini station. Needs a little TLC, but the bed was... More

I wrote an honest review of this hotel commenting on how disappointed we were with our tiny room and how unpleasant it was to use a bathroom with a mould riddled shower, a cracked toilet seat and stained sink and it has been taken down? If you are expecting 4 star, do not stay here. The staff were rude, unaccomodating... More

Excellent front desk reception and a quick verbal tour of Rome. My wife wasn't feeling too well and the obliged us an early check-in even though we arrived at 10:30am from Venice. Also PlayStation in every room?? Who does that? Awesome!!! If I come back to Rome, I will stay here and will surely recommend it to any friend visiting... More
