My daughter and I had a great experience at the Hotel Sonya. Our stay was from April 1 to April 8, 2006. The location was perfect for either walking in Rome or hopping a bus to travel throughout Rome. We enjoyed the Farmers/Vendors Market each morning from 7 AM - 1 PM around the corner. The gelato shop, liquor store,... More

We had a lovely time in Rome, thanks to the location of the hotel. We could walk everywhere. The hotel in itself was wonderful, clean, the staff quite helpful. Stay here it is great.

I have just returned from my stay at the Hotel Sonya and found the hotel absolutely fine. The previous review mentions that they thought the "Opera House" was a picture of the hotel but if you read the previous reviews and look at other travellers pictures - it clearly says a picture of the view from our room! As for... More

Like most other reviews here, I find the Sonya's location very good - on a safe, quiet street. The rooms are of decent size, and at least in my room the hot water is hot. We had a triple room, which is basically two single beds plus a roller-bed. I slept on the roller, which has a decent mattress, but... More

Stayed here for one night last month based on all the positive reviews but was totally underwhelmed by the hotel. The room although small was perfectly adequate and very clean but it was directly across from the elevator and the hall door and was very noisy. The TV received only one fuzzy channel. The breakfast selction and quality was below... More

About 10-15 minutes walk from Termini station, this great little budget hotel was ideal for us (2 adults & 2 teens). Good-sized comfortable rooms (we were on the 5th floor and it all seemed quite recently refurbished), decent breakfast and friendly staff. Its also not noisy which was a big plus. We went at the end of December and the... More

We stayed at this hotel for three nights and found the staff very helpful and friendly. The rooms were an average size with plain decor but warm ours faced onto the opera house. The breakfast area was slightly disappointing cramped with not much choice and there was no hotel resturant.The hotel is approx 10 minute walk from the train station... More

Stayed at the Sonya for 4 nights at the end of November, 2005. Had a wonderful experience there. When I travel by myself and request a single room, it can sometimes produce little more than a broom closet with a cot stuck in it but my room at the Sonya was spacious and looked out on the Opera House across...

I booked this hotel based on all the reviews on this site. This trip to Rome was a surprise I had organised for my husband and my baby, I have to say it is nothing like the reviews said. The rooms are old fashion with cold ceramic floors and the hotel facilities are far from a three star. The bkfast... More
