Nice sized room, large marble-like bathroom, free wifi with spotty coverage in room. All this in a building with several different hotels. The Selene was on the third floor (small elevator available), but had to walk up some steps with luggage at entrance. The room was spotless, but the shower wall did not contain the water. Breakfast was in a... More

The hotel is a 5 minute walk from Termini station where you would arrive if you take the leonardo express train from FCO.

Very nice hotel, clean and spacious room (4 beds familiy room). As a food lover, the breakfast could have been better (e.g more organic food, wholegrain healthy section as well as fresh home made cakes). I've never impressed by places serving cakes with only the laste of E-numbers :( or orange juice which is half and half water and juice... More
