Originally booked my 1 night stay in Rome at the hotel opera. Upon arriving (short walk from termini) I was informed that we would be staying at the operas sister hotel sonya (just up the street) and that our things would be moved for us and we could find them in the room. This is exactly how things worked out!... More

The room was clean, but a bit small. The staff was great. Breakfast was delicious. By the time we left, they knew exactly what we each wanted to drink. We walked everywhere except the Vatican, which we reached by metro. We would stay there again.

We made the right choice staying at Hotel Sonya. This cozy property blends modern conveniences with charming elements from an era gone by, including a classic cage elevator, period woodwork and prominent wooden doors opening to private corridors of rooms. Our large, front facing room had very comfortable beds and a wonderful view of the Teatro dell'Opera di Roma and... More

Great location near the station, walking distance to Trevi, etc. Quiet street, friendly staff, nice rooms, close to bus lines. In this price range you can't do much better than this. Easy to book via thier website/email.

I mistakenly thought I was reserving a stay in Sept, but somehow I put in the wrong month, July. I emailed to ask them to please not charge me that day and that I actually wanted Sept. They never responded by email and after I called, the person on the phone was rude and just said "no, your fault." Yes,... More

My family and I spent three nights (broken 1 and then 2) at the Hotel Sonya. It is in a great location -- just 5-10 minute walk from Roma Termini. The rooms we stayed in were very clean though the first room we had - in the refurbished section -- was definitely better. Beds were very comfortable and the A/C... More

My son and I stayed in a twin room for 4 nights in July. Our room was on the first floor and looked newly re-done. Beds were comfortable, extra blankets and pillows available. Room was very clean, including the bathroom. Room wasn't overly large but was set up well with lots of storage so never seemed crowded. Air conditioning worked... More
