Great hotel, friendly and helpful staff. Room was larger than expected and bathroom was more than satisfactory. Location close to many great restaurants and metro and Vatican. Great breakfast and a lot of value for the price. Would definitely stay here again when back in Rome.

I really enjoyed this hotel. I loved the quirky touches - disco ball in the bathroom, drums for side tables. It was great having the sound system in the room especially since I could attach my IPOD or borrow CDs. The room was super clean and very comfortable. I was right beside the elevator but really did not find it... More

The Franklin ticks a lot of box's for a quirky and fun hotel , Disco lights and speakers in the bathroom, drums for bedside tables and a lending service for cds, BUT it is a little isolated from downtown Rome the nearest metro is a bit of a walk, and though handy for the Vatican area it's neccessary to use...

Located in Prati, this hotel is in a quiet neighbourhood near the Vatican. We were well received and all correspondence with the management before the visit was engaging, with quick responses to all our queries. This hotel is themed around music, what with nightstands in the for of drums, cymbals as lamp shades, a disco ball in the bathroom and... More

The hotel is unique and has a fun theme. Our nightstand were two drums. The bathroom had a disco ball and a blue light. The breakfast was great and the staff was very helpful and friendly. The hotel has a shuttle service to the airport for a fee of $50.00 flat. Our room was facing the road but it was... More

I found this place in a last minute search because my usual business-type hotel was full in Rome. Positives: Location, location, location. You can leave your room and return in three hours having walked past every major attraction in Rome. Of course, you would want to stop and see things, but you get my point. New and clean. This means... More

Great place, complimentary drinks in the mini fridge was a huge plus. Neighborhood seemed very safe. This hotel is very close to the Vatican museum entrance,but it's about a mile to St. Peter's Square. Right around the left corner is an outstanding restaurant one of the best we ate at. All tours start at vatican sq area and as I... More

My extended family stayed at the Best Western Franklin in August on a visit to Rome. We stayed in 3 rooms (Rooms 104, 202 and 405) for 5 nights. The hotel is 20 minutes walk from the Vatican in a quiet area. We were not concerned walking back after dinner at night. As mentioned in other review this is a... More

Quite standard strong 4* hotels, responsive personnel eager to provide you with advice/support for any issue or question. In-building breakfast room is a bit small, still there is a yard with 4-5 tables for a nice time in the morning. Wide choice of teas, fresh coffee, a bit limited choice of hot dishes and vegetables. Room boasts high ceiling, most... More

My daughter and I stayed at this hotel in July 2014 and the staff were accommodating. We arrived early and the girl at the check in counter brought us cookies and juice while we waited for our room. We had requested an early check in and the room wasn't ready, but the staff were considerate and we didn't wait long.... More
