We stayed at Des Artistes during our recent visit to Rome. The hotel is centrally located, within 5 mins walking distance from Rome Termini station. The staff is very courteous and helpful. The hotel is very good value for money. What I loved was their good breakfast available at Euro 8/-. Excellent wifi connectivity at a very affordable rate of... More

Good location [near metro stations: Castro Pretorio (150 m) e Termini (600 m)]. Old hotel but near a many restaurants in via Palestro (Mamma Angella`s, Pizzeria del Secolo, Ice Cream Factory, etc.) supermarket (Conad Piazza-Indipendenza). Normal room.

Just off the subway at Castro Pretorio and a few blocks from Termini station, this hostel has a friendly vibe and great staff. By no means glamorous and could use a few more common areas, but it does the job for a price that's hard to beat. Bonus points for the excellent wi-fi and mouthwatering pizza just around the corner.

this place was such good value for money! it has hostel prices and, granted, you sleep with other people in the room, but the furniture is really more hotel style (no bunk beds! and there's a tv, wardrobe and table in solid wood and so on) which gives it a more homely feel, the bathrooms are clean, everything is clean,...

It's not a fancy hotel but it's very well located - couple of minutes walking to the Metro subway! This will get you to a lot of place quick - Colosseum, Vatican/St. Peter's Basilica... It's also 15 minute walk to the Termini for buses and trains and some local attractions. The rooms are clean. The staff is friendly. Great breakfast... More

We stayed in June 2014 and would be quick to stay there again. We had a room for four. The room was great and Clean! The hotel staff was extremely professional and assisted in our every request. A couple of great eateries on the same block of the hotel. A minute walk to Termini Metro Station or a two minute... More

Close to a metro stop and termini wasn't that far away either. Good number of restaurants nearby. Staff were friendly and organised. It had a lift as well. Rooms were clean as well as the shared bathrooms that we used. Free Wifi was available only in the common room, which was a minor inconvenience.

Nice location.. About 10 mins walk from rome termini station and 30 mins from other major attractions. Subway stop is a block away which connects to all major spots. The staff is friendly and helpful. Wifi is extra charge (2 euro for 24 hrs and 5 for entire stay). Breakfast was decent.. They have scrambled eggs, choice of bread/ pastries,... More

So, think you need to be clear which is the hotel and which is the hostel - they are different and separate. I am reviewing the hotel. Friendly, helpful reception staff. Room is absolutely fine. Just right size, good bathroom, shower is good. Quiet rooms in terms of noise from street, but walls are thin! The breakfast however is dreadful!... More
