If you are in Rome for business this hotel is perfect for what you need. Even though the Internet would have been better as it was not working properly in the room and had to go to the lobby. If you are in Rome on holiday, then consider the location as it is on a main road and there is... More

Stayed here for 4 nights with my boyfriend. Room was great, very clean and spacious. Location was a little far out of the city centre but there were several buses just across the road that ran to all the major sites and areas. Breakfast was good and staff were friendly and helpful. Only complaint would be the location as would... More

Ample room, modern and bright interior, large bathroom with tub, very clean. LCD TV with over 40 channels and air conditioning in room. Amazing mattresses! Great external sound insulation (no noise from a very busy street nearby). Sufficient breakfast. Very polite and friendly staff. Overal, it was a great experience. Finding a modern hotel in Rome at affordable price equals... More

My husband and I stayed at this hotel when attending a conference in Rome. We were there for 7 days (3 days in the conference, 4 days knowing the city). The hotel is located in a working class neighborhood, 2 metro stations from Rome's touristic attractions (2 stations to Circo Masimo, 3 to the Colosseo). The location is fine if... More

We liked very much the hotel, the room were very clean. Very good the breakfast. Nice people to the reception. Easy to arrive in the city centre from the hotel, at 3 station by subway and until subway 10 minutes to walk. The bus station is also near the hotel.

Super clean, sleek bedrooms: hardwood floors, all white scheme, divine mattresses and bathrooms with top quality plumbing ...and heated towel racks. Nice and helpful staff. To get to the touristic spots, we mostly took the cab, very cheap. The subway station is a 10 min walk from the hotel. Nearby ( walking distance) there is the new Eatery, a trendy... More

We stayed at the Caravel for 12 nights recently and can highly recommend this hotel. It is only 3 train stations stop from the centre of Rome. The rooms are very clean and comfortable and the reception staff could not be more helpful and welcoming. The Resturant is very nice and offers a good selection on the menu and again,... More
