This is a real gem of a hotel to stop in. It is not very expensive, but the quality belies the price. I was met and greeted at reception, who informed me of everything i needed to know, places to visit, how to get there etc. The rooms were really comfortable and well appointed. You also got a free continental... More

Although this is rated a 3-star hotel, I felt the service received was 4-star. Yes, you will not get the amenities... More

After an abhorrent incident at another hotel, we were able to book this hotel for 4 nights and I'm glad we did! The staff could not have been more accommodating to our needs! They didn't have a room available for 3 people, but the cute receptionist (the guy with the beard and glasses) said he could put in a cot... More

My family stayed here fo a couple of nights on an independant excursion from the Amalfi coast. It was just across from the train station where we arrived and the very friendly policeman who showed us across the road could not help singing the song. This is something often repeated when the hotel is mentioned. Taking the bus to most... More

The hotel is well located as it is right in the center and near the train station but the internet access is not good. Is very limited at the front desk. The system for bathing is old, need to fix the shower wall.

We really enjoyed the stay at Hotel California. It is very near to termini, neat & clean and the triple bed room was comfortable. Nearby restaurants, hop on & hop off bus service, airport bus service, public transports... it is an ideal location in Rome and real value for your money

Very pleased with location, central for good restaurants and places of interest, plus the rail and bus terminus were all within walking distance so saved on taxi fares. Lift to all floors, bedroom size adequate and modern fittings. Breakfast served in basement restaurant very good and plentiful.

The Hotel California provided an excellent vantage point for public transportation to tour Rome. The hotel staff was courteous and efficient. The room - a suite for parents and two adult children - was spacious, clean, quiet and comfortable. A good value and on the list for a repeat visit.
