Great stay, close to most attractions, close to the train staion maybe a 10 min walk, need to take a bus to Spanish Steps and Vatican. Hotel was clean, staff extremely friendly on a quiet street. Breakfast was good was the same each morning but very tasty. Make sure that you are shown how the air conditioned works and the... More

This is a great little hotel in Rome. The location is perfect, very central to all the main attractions with a metro stop very close by to reach them only a few stops away. If you are traveling by train to other destinations it's ideal as the station is a few minutes walking distance. The room was clean and modern... More

Hotel is well placed, in the centre of Rome. The main "must see" attractions are just few minutes away. We spent only one night there, so it's difficult to talk about room service, however room was clean and nicely prepared. Our room ( for two people ) seemed to be bigger on pictures than in reality (but still cosily )... More

We chose this hotel after a throughout search, checking hundreds of guests opinions of different hotels. So we hoped that it would be a really good hotel and it was indeed. Location is great, very close to the Termini, and close to the main sights as well, even on foot. The room was very nice, with free tea and coffee... More

This hotel is within walking distance to the Roma Termini station, which connects to the airport so it is a great location. The staff were incredibly helpful and made our time in Rome more enjoyable. Also the room and bathroom were modern as well as charming. No problems at all with this hotel.

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.
