The Hotel like all the others in the area is old but that is what you come to Rome for, to experience an ancient City. There is a tiny lift to the upper floors which is a trip in itself. The windows in the room open open and be sure to ask for a double bed and a walk in... More

Budget hotel with 22 en-suite rooms on first floor. Good location very near Termini, which has several bus services from and to the airport for a mere 4€. The hotel is clean and there are good restaurants nearby, the best being Taverna Pretoriana; this restaurant was busy, the service and food excellent and 90% of the customers were locals.. The...

The hotel is away from the hustle and bustle of the city but at the same time few minutes away from the Rome’s main train terminal. Along the way, you can find a large number of restaurants, wine shops, groceries, souvenir shops… etc. There is a bazaar very close to the hotel if you need any stuff for day-to-day use.... More

The room (520) was not big, like is usually the case in Rome, but clean. Breakfast was very nice: fresh fruit, cereals, fresh bread, cheese spread, jam, fruit juice,etc. No eggs, though, which is a bit a pity. Good location, not far from the metro in a quiet part from the city.

Booked a very cheap trip to Rome through Expedia. My room was nice, no problems with the bathroom apart from a rickety shower screen. Some noise issues, solved with ear plugs, and the limited wifi is irritating but stated upfront so can't complain. It was clean, comfortable and convenient - would absolutely return.

We stayed in this hotel from the 21st to the 26th of September. This was our second time staying at this venue and our previous experience had been positive. Therefore it was without hesitation that when looking for a hotel for a pre-mediterranean cruise stay in Rome, we booked to stay at this hotel again. We also arranged for a... More

Just got back from a weekend in Rome! Rome is a gorgeous magnificent city but the hotel ruined the experience. The Hotel is dated, dark and dirty. The internet does not work in the rooms and even normal phone signal is poor. I stayed in room 20 which is on the ground floor. The window had to stay shut all... More

We chose the Hotel Cambridge when putting together a last minute cheap week away in Rome. The room was small as is usually the case, but a huge bed, lovely bathroom (with powerful shower, built in hairdryer and jacuzzi bathtub) and our own air conditioning made it very comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful - look out for... More
