My husband and I traveled with our grown daughter and son-in-law to Italy for 2 weeks. Our first stop was Rome. I chose Hotel Sonya based on TripAdvisor reviews and was not disappointed. The location is great. It's across the street from the Opera House, which is walking distance (or a short taxi ride) from Rome Termini train station. Hotel... More

I would definitely stay here again and suggest it to friends and family. The location is perfect and the value is great. The breakfast was so good, the cappuchino was delicious, I probably had 4 each morning, the orange juice was the best I have ever tasted, the food was all around delicious - it would cost at least 20...

We originally reserved at the Hotel Opera Roma, but were moved to Hotel Sonya when we arrived....we really didn't care, since we don't spend time at the hotel most times. It turned out to be fine -- the staff were terrific, the rooms very comfortable (small, as most rooms in the small hotels in Rome are), but in a convenient... More

The positive: within walking distance to Termini Train Station; satisfying breakfast. The negative: only ONE staff member was friendly and helpful. The rest were either indifferent or not happy to be working at Hotel Sonya; esp. the red-headed female front desk person. We were afraid to ask for directions or advice; they acted as if we were bothering them! The... More

I stayed here in the summer with my two teenage children for five nights. The staff were very friendly and helpful with any questions we had about the area and getting around the city. The breakfast was huge each morning, we were able to skip lunch most days. The location was great, close to the subway and train station. Our... More

Travelled as a family with 2 kids in Jan 2014. This hotel offered good size room, clean, included breakfast and very reasonable price compared to cross the road 4/5 stars hotels. It is just opposite the Opera Theatre. Love its very central location for travel around Rome. Less than 10 mins walking distance away with pram from Rome Termini main... More

I was recently in Rome for less than 24 hours on my way home from a ski holiday in Italy. I booked one nights accommodation in the Hotel Sonya. Considering it's Rome and it's central location, I got a very good rate of 78 Euros. However, just be aware of the bait and switch that other reviewers have experienced. When... More

The Hotel Sonya is as advertised: a moderately priced, convenient and clean hotel. It is a short walk to the Termini Railroad station and metro, and a great jumping off point to explore the city or to venture forth. You can use the hotel to get anywhere with public transportation. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable, and the... More

Located just a few minutes from termini train station, the hotel is nice and cosy. The staff is very friendly and very helpful. The rooms are clean, warm and very cosy. I found the shower though to be very small, but still big enough to wash ones body ;-) Breakfast was ok, but could get boring after a few days.
