We stayed at The Hotel Selene Roma for 4 days and every aspect was magnificent. The director of operations whose name is Gabrielle was the greatest host I have ever had at a hotel.

The Hotel Selene is situated within a great part of Rome, only 10 minute walk from Termini Station (allowing for great bus and train access around the City as well as easy links to the airport) as well as walking distance to many of the major attractions throughout the City. As soon as we arrived we knew we'd picked the... More

Hotel Selene is very conveniently located close to Termini, (5 min walk )so you can easily take the metro from Republica or Termini itself to every location in Rome. Colosseum and Palatine Hill are like 15 mins walk from it. Rooms were very clean and nicely decorated. The beds are comfortable. and the room is quiet so you can get... More

Stayed 3 nights with my mum, hotel was really well located close to termini but really accessible from all major sights. Hotel staff were really accommodating, helpful and friendly.

Stayed one night before my flight out of Rome. This hotel is a 5 minute walk from the train station and has lots of restaurants nearby. Usually I splurge when I am in Rome and stay near the Pantheon and pay 3 times the price. Amenities and such are comparable to the "nicer" hotels in the city center, but this... More

This hotel was a real gem of a find. It is located a 5 minute walk from Termini Train Station and Metro and is perfectly located for all the tourist locations such as the Colosseum, Palatine Hill (10 - 15 min walk), Trevi Fountains, Pantheon, Spanish Steps (20 min walk, if that).

We spent a week in Rome recently and stayed at this excellent little hotel. The staff is so friendly and service-minded, the rooms are nice and very tidy and the location is perfect. 3 minutes from Stazione Termini which is Rome's communication hub.

I came to Rome for a rugby match with a group of friends and this hotel is not near the olympic stadium. It's not near the classic historic sites (Spanish steps, etc.) of Rome either- It's near Via Nazionale and Termini Train Station, so it makes sense if you come by train. The Hotel is located at the 3rd and... More
