Stayed here in May 14, the hotel was perfect for our needs. The room was clean and not overly small, twin beds but again not a problem as we just pushed them together. The owners and staff we very helpful offering good directions and giving us the names of the best restaurant's. The breakfast is basic and my husband would... More

My son and I stayed in the Donatello for 3 nights. I will have to tell you, that this room was absolutely charming. The ambiance to the room, was probably much like where the natives of Rome live themselves. I would have rather stayed here, then in a cold sterile room in a Hilton somewhere. Besides, we came to Rome... More

With no amenities other than the incredibly kind man at the front desk. Carlos, I believe. The room had two twin beds pushed together with barely enough space to walk around, and not made up so that you could sleep on both. It was like going back to 3rd grade. The dining area was under construction. Wouldn't do it again.

I booked a trip to this hotel through Humberside Airport Travel as a wedding present to my husband. We stayed 30th June to 3rd July and to say we were looking forward to it was an understatement. We had 7 months wait to get there and the reviews/website showed it to be a little diamond of a place; wtong! On... More

Stayed at this hotel for 3 nights - 30/6 -3/7/14. Couldn't fault the service from all the staff who were extremely friendly and helpful. A very warm welcome on arrival - breakfast was served in the Court Yard which was very pleasant but has some ongoing building work which really didn't bother us. The room was very clean and tidy...

I enjoyed this hotel with my son (11) to visit Rome for three days. We choose it because of Price/Quality ratio and b ecause of the location. The hotel surpirsed us in a pleasant way. The personnel was friendl and the room was very nice. I think this has been redone lately because the bathroom facilities looked quite new. More... More

We stayed here in may 2014 for a week. Staff were helpful and friendly and happy to help with any queries. Breakfast was served either in the basement room or out side. Both were lovely. Every morning we were served with coffee, crossants and fresh breadrolls. A good selection of jams and orange juice. No cooked option but we were... More

David & Miriam, Sydney- Australia As other reviews have stated this hotel is well located. We would often have a well priced beer or meal 50 metres away in the piazza. This is ringed by a 2000 year old aquaduct. The staff at Donatello are probably its best feature. They went out of their way to help us. Even arranged... More

The hotel is very well located. You can take the tram from Termini (5 or 14) and it's only 4 stops away, then the hotel is exactly there! Otherwise, you can take the subway "Metro A" and reach the metro stop "Manzoni" (3 stop from Termini) and then walk a bit. Staff was very nice, the room was small but... More
