We had nothing but a good stay with this hotel. We were met at the front door by staff who hauled in our heavy luggage for us and got us checked in. I found that all the hotel beds we stayed at in Italy were on the harder side. The breakfast was fantastic, totally enough food, and a good variety.... More

The Sonya is in a great location, although if arriving at the train termini and you have a lot of luggage may I recommend a taxi and don't tackle the walk over cobble stones and doubtful crossings as the Italians don't seem to have any road rules. The reception staff are courteous but the breakfast staff are really fantastic and... More

This hotel turned out to be a great surprise. We stayed in a room that was newly renovated and it was very very good. Bathroom was a good size, unlike out hotel in Florence, and the room was a good size. Clean room and very comfortable bed. Would recommend staying here due to the location, price, accommodations and cleanliness. Short... More

We arrived at this hotel late afternoon on October 6, 2014. We had booked and prepaid for our room with a travel agency and had a printed voucher which we presented to the front desk upon arrival. We were told by the clerk there was no room booked for us and they had no rooms available. Needless to say, this... More

We stayed 4 nights post-cruise at Hotel Sonya. I booked through an internet site, so I must have been low on the list for a great room. This is probably the smallest room I have ever stayed in Europe. I had asked for two twin beds, which we got. Our luggage had to turned sideways to get them between the... More

Got to Hotel Sonya, with a long-standing reservation. but were told we needed to go to a "sister" hotel nearby. We went to the Hotel Opera Roma, a short walk, and we pleasantly surprised. The staff was extremely helpful and courteous. The room, European small, was well-appointed and very clean. The bathroom was roomy and had recently been updated. We... More

We stayed here for four nights in September. Our room was quiet, clean, and sufficiently large, although the lighting was a little dim. The hotel staff were very professional and helpful, and the breakfast was good. The hotel is close to the train station which is very convenient, but the area is also quite "commercial". We enjoyed this hotel and... More

We stayed at the Hotel Sonya one night in September before we left for Sorrento. We found the hotel very clean and comfortable. The room was not big but most hotel rooms in Europe are not big. We asked to stay in one of the renovated rooms and we were very pleased. The hotel was very quiet, and located about... More

Everyone on the hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. Room was spacious for Rome and very clean. Would definitely stay here again. Location was great for access to main train station. Good restaurants located very near and National Museum of Rome is just around the corner.

The guy at the desk informed me in broken English and without any apologies that they are full. I had a reservation, however. They tried to put me into an non-negotiably bad room at a different hotel - the one that reeked and had a window to the plumbing shaft instead of a regular window. Awful experience and needless to...
