We loved everything about Hotel Sonya Roma, The reservation process by email was easy, the 8% cash discount (ATM 50 steps down the street), the friendly staff and of course the breakfast. By the end of our stay, the server knew which drinks each of us wanted as we sat down. On the last morning when we had to catch... More

The location made it easy to get to the hotel from the airport and the metro. We were able to walk to most of the attractions. The rooms were a good size and clean. The staff was very helpful in finding us everything we wanted to see in Rome. Breakfast was ok.

I would love to legitimately review this hotel, but they lost our reservation. We showed them our confirmation email. Instead of admitting their mistake, they shuffled us to a nearby hotel. It had crummy AC and the WIFI never worked. Super disappointed. Customer service was lousy! Luckily, this was the last leg of our trip and we were only staying... More

About 10 mins walk from main station. Efficient and helpful staff. Rooms are modern and good size for Rome. Good bathroom. Within walking distance of Trevi Fountain and Spanish steps. Restaurants and shops (supermarket, chemist) nearby. Breakfast was average.

The hotel in the center of Rome is less than 10 min walk from central train station Roma Termini. Thus it is certainly a good choice when you arrive from one of Rome's airport and take the airport bus shuttle (or train) to Rome, since these lines end at Roma Termini. Most points of interest are within walking distance (Trevi... More
