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

We stayed here as part of a package we purchased. The package was inexpensive, so I can only assume the pricing is a good value. Location is not centrally located, however it's about a 15 min walk to the metro and there is a taxi station very close by. Not a lot of restaurants in the area and the evening... More

WE rushed our trip through Rome headed for Northern Italy and wish now we hadn't. Stayed at the Donatello pure by random choice but it worked out quite well. We got lost almost every time we walked out of the front door mainly as the map and any sort of scale are complete strangers. The really great host laughed at... More
