Friendly staff, about a €10 taxi or 10 minute wall from the main train station. Modest, clean and comfortable accommodations. Perfect for a budget traveler that doesn't want to make any big compromises. I was a female traveling solo and felt totally comfortable.

The Rex is only a 10 minute walk from the main train station Termini so you can use the Leonardo Express (14 Euros each way) or airport link bus (4 Euros each way) and save yourself a taxi fare from Rome airport. The location is also near to The Pantheon, Spanish Steps, Piazza Navona, and the Colosseum. And if you... More

Executive summary Pros - Good location near Termini station, friendly staff, decent functional room amenities, very cosy 'drawing room' or living room for those who are not familiar with the term Cons - bathroom is in need of maintenance*, room can feel outdated, standard room is on the small side (normal for Rome) *The bathroom was very aged for a...

My husband and I stayed here for one night in July 2014. We were spending a night in Rome before traveling to the airport after returning from Sorrento. Upon first glance, we were worried. The room is small, the bed is small. However, the room is clean, the bed is comfy. We were worried about two adults sleeping on a... More

We stayed one night at the Hotel Rex. It's about a 10 minute walk from the train station, and pretty easy to find. Staff were super helpful onsite and offered us information on the site, nearby restaurants, services, breakfast, and luggage assistance. Very friendly and helpful. The hotel itself is the ok part. It's older, a little oddly configured and... More

After researching many hotels (we needed one near the main train station), what clinched it for me was the prompt and helpful responses to any queries I had. The price also was the best I could find for 3-4 star hotel. We were not at all disappointed, it turned out to be a good choice . The staff were friendly... More

I have to say that this hotel was just in the right spot 10 minutes from the railway/bus stations and walking distance of some of the sights, Metro was 10 minutes away as well. Hotel itself is in need of some refurbishment it looks very tired and worn .Small lounge with a wooden floor which was downright dangerous to walk... More

We stayed at Hotel Rex for three nights in June 2014. Our room was just OK. It was old and in need of remodeling. While it was really big and accommodated our family of four just fine, it didn't feel clean. The bathroom shower had mold in it and the door barely closed. The tile bathroom floor had nicks and...
