The Smeraldo is perfectly located in the centre of the historic section of Rome. Nestled just off main roads, surrounded by excellent local restaurants, cafés and shops, this very clean, cozy, quiet hotel was just what we were looking for. Shower and elevator were tiny but functional. Breakfast was modest but excellent. Bus stops were just minutes away connecting to... More

Well situated in one of the cosy little streets in the heart of Rome. I spent the night in a room in the "dipendenza", opposite the main building: clean and basic, but very small. Main disadvantage: rather noisy - I could follow all conversations (and the rest) in the rooms next to mine. Breakfast was more than OK, quite standard,... More

We really enjoyed the proximity of this hotel to the restaurant district in a Travestere, campo dei fiori and also the tourist attractions are within walking distance. The staff were helpful. Shower was very small, just reaching for the soap and you accidentally turn the tap off and I'm a petit 5ft 4 girl, would hate to see how a... More

I stayed at the Smeraldo for three nights last week and couldn't be happier. Reasonable rates, friendly staff, very clean room, very good breakfast and within walking distance of all of the big Rome tourist sites. My group really liked the rooftop patio on the main building. I can highly recommend the Smeraldo! The location is on a narrow street... More

Everything we needed in a charming room! Loved the shower with its rain head, wand and horizontal spray. Air conditioning a godsend. Staff was always pleasant and helpful. Breakfast was typically continental but more than adequate. Biggest plus with Smeraldo is the location... In the heart of everything! Campo di Fiori, Piazza Navona, the Pantheon, the Jewish Ghetto, piazza Venezia,... More

We just spent 3 nights at Hotel Smeraldo in Rome and were extremely pleased in almost every way. The room size was small but not tiny. Our room (208) had a small bathroom and a tiny shower but was very clean and had AC. However, our friends' room (203) must have been renovated recently because their bathroom and shower were... More

We chose this hotel based on (1) a Rick Steves recommendation, (2) price, and (3) reviews on TripAdvisor. Little did we know how perfect the location is, in addition to comfortable room, helpful staff, and rooftop terrace. Our room was small but well appointed and newly renovated. We used the hotel-arranged transfer from the airport and felt it was money... More

We stayed for one night before our cruise. Most of the must see sites are with in walking distance from this hotel. There are many restaurants near by. Our room though small was very clean and modern and had a fantastic shower. The roof terrace is a lovely place to relax with a glass of wine. This hotel is a... More

Right when we got to the hotel at 10:30am the front desk let us check-in early!!! This was a god send after carrying our luggage across Rome. The tv worked and was flat screen. The room was very spacious! (As European hotel rooms go) but it had a fairly small bathroom. There was a lock safe and closet. Air conditioning... More
