Just came back from a wonderful stay in Rome. The hotel was just around the corner from Termini station, even with the luggage, not hard to walk. ( If you come with the Leonardo Express, make sure that you walk out the station taking the nearest exit). Wonderful welcome, clean rooms, awesome bed ( never slept this good ) and... More

This hotel is in a great location, right next door to all of the major attractions. The best part is that all of the attractions are down hill from the hotel, so it is very easy to walk. It is very clean and modern, friendly, and there are english speaking staff. What is important for the people who are traveling... More

On a recent overnight stay in Rome (my first visit to Italy) I chose Hotel Selene based on TripAdvisor reviews and I was not disappointed.

We had a family room and a standard room and both were clean and nicely decorated with the family room being huge for a hotel room. Staff were really lovely and accommodating. We were even offered refreshments while waiting for one room to be ready (we arrived much earlier than checkin time). The location is so central, easy to walk... More

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
