Lovely hotel, clean, centrally located very close to the main termini and metro. Helpful staff & great breakfast. Funny little lift only big enough for 2 people and their luggage. Would definitely stay again.

My family of 4 stayed at Selene for 2 nights. It's on 2 floors of a building shared with 2 other hotels. There's a small lift for luggage but most of the time we used the stairs. It's a gorgeous hotel with lots of character, old but renovated beautifully, clean and close to the main station and a metro (underground)... More

Very good hotel, extremely positive and helpful staff. Good location, clean place. Only thing I didn't like was breakfasts - each day same food. I'd like to see more variety in this field. All the rest perfect!

The hotel is located to Republica which also features a metro stop. The rooms are of average size and the beds are comfortable. There are effective air conditioning units and the bathroom was nice and being an American it felt "normal". The breakfast is okay but lacks variety, but luckily there is a delicious gelato place that has large portions... More

We are a family of four who stayed at the Selene Roma for five nights in May 2014. We had a quad room which was very comfortable. The hotel is well located, sights within walking distance. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Hotel is very clean. Would definitely return to this property.

Close to the main railway station was a bonus for us. Once we arrived we were greeted by the most professional of staff that were so helpful during our short visit.

We stayed here for 4 nights in June. All staff was very helpful (we had a LOT of questions) and friendly, our room and bathroom were clean, spacious and comfortable. Rome noises barely bothered us (not much can be done about the car horns in traffic). Breakfast was lovely - something for everyone. We would definitely go back.

Loved this boutique hotel. The newly renovated rooms were very large and comfortable. We liked the little extras in the room, kettle and packets of tea, small bar refrigerator and thick luxury towels. Staff were excellent.

Selene's staff was very accommodating, the hotel clean and modernized, and even with a corner room, quiet at night. The location near enough to the train station was perfect for rolling baggage, as well as close to all city transportation---even though Rome is a walking city, if you really want to experience the full flavor. The reviewer who was negative... More
