I should have read the reviews of this hotel before I booked it with Gate 1. I have waited 5 months from my visit to see if I could get this horrible experience out of my mind. I have been traveling and leading trips for over 30 years and this is the worst customer service I've ever seen. I stayed... More

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights. Small rooms but perfectly adequate for us. Spotlessly clean and a lovely little balcony looking onto the courtyard. A wee bit away from the city centre but had good transport links nearby. The staff were really friendly and helpful. Would have loved tea/coffee making facilities in my room, but that's just... More

The Donatello is a small hotel in a more residential area of Rome. My friend and I stayed there for 2 nights on a whirlwind trip through Europe. The room was small, as was the shower, but we were only there to sleep and shower so that was fine. The hotel had wifi for €7 for the entire stay per... More

Overall, this hotel was pretty decent. My mother and I went on a Gate 1 travel trip and this was the first stop. We got pretty nervous walking to the hotel from the Termini station (graffiti and rough neighborhood), but it was ok after we got there. The breakfast is very basic. After the bread basket don't expect eggs and... More

we used this hotel for a long weekend in rome it is quite near the metro station and so easy access to all the sites,tha staff are very friendly and helpful and the hotel was very clean,the only downside of the hotel was the very basic breakfast and lack of tea making equipment and no bar.

All in all we had a good experience with Gate 1 Travel. We traveled from Chicago to London, Paris, Rome, and Spain. The hotels were what we expected. We were disappointed with the Ambassador Hotel in London. Service was good but the rooms were small. We should have upgraded our hotel. The hotels in Paris, Rome, and Madrid were good... More

looks intimidating with all the graffiti outside, but a lovely hotel brilliant helpful staff, friendly and accommodating. breakfast could be better maybe a bit or ham or cheese, would go back close for walking to most features. taxi rank 2 mins away, tram 2 mins away, buses 2 mins away. we loved it and thank you to all the staff.

I was surprised at how friendly the staff was. We recently spent nights in London and Paris and expected the same up-tight service however we were greeted by this older gentlemen who was such a character! He made us feel right at home. It felt more like a bed and breakfast rather than a hotel. A couple of the younger... More

We spent our 25th wedding anniversary at the Hotel Donatello and it couldn't have been nicer. Our room was on the first floor and we had our own outdoor patio with table and chairs, a little garden setting. Our room was large with space for our luggage, a nice couch, large closet with safe, and comfortable bed. The hotel staff... More
