I was looking for a reasonably priced Hotel in Rome for a couple of nights prior to a cruise and a friend recommended the Smeraldo which proved to be a perfect choice. My single room was on the fourth floor and while small it had everything I needed including a large balcony overlooking a Roman roofscape. The bathroom was amazing... More

The Smeraldo Hotel has a great location with reasonable walking distance to all the major tourist sights. It is situated on a small quaint cobble stone street with a cafe, restaurant, bakery, gelato and many other shop right outside the door. It is a 5 minute walk from Campo de Fiori which is a great piazza to grab dinner and... More

This was our second stay at Smeraldo. Again this time check in was very quick and staff very polite, friendly and efficient. The Rooms we had were tastefully decorated with a great bathroom this is in despite of the small size (which is the norm in Room) but not a problem as time we spent at the hotel was really... More

The location of this hotel is great. However, the room needs updating. Very small shower. Hardly enough room for one person. had trouble closing the accordion door on it. Room was clean, but old European hotel decorating style. Breakfast was ok, just the basics- cereal, fruit, toast, tea/coffe, juice. After seeing an updated room friends of our were staying in,...

PROS: - AWESOME location, walk everywhere (close to piazza Navona, Campo Di Fiori, Pantheon, Trastevere) - Clean rooms - Helpful staff - GREAT views from the patio. - Adequate breakfast (selection of yoghourt, meats, bread, some fruit, tea,...

Smeraldo was a great location for sightseeing in Rome. My wife and I walked to the Coliseum, Forum, Trevi Fountain, Pantheon, St Peters and the Vatican Museum. The roof terraces were great for relaxing and sipping some wine. The room was clean and updated. Great restaurant's and gelato just a couple steps outside the hotel. The only issue we had... More

Loved this hotel. Staff was very friendly, breakfast was very good, and location was perfect for us. Rooms are small, but we were on the go so that wasn't an issue. I would stay here again. Would like to see the rooftop area fixed up.

I loved this hotel. The price was very reasonable and the location was absolutely perfect if you prefer to explore the city by walking . Our room was newly renovated and was perfect for a 3-4 day stay. Highlights: the bed was comfortable, our room had a balcony, roof terrace open to guests, bathroom had a waterfall shower, and the...

The only positive note is the position of the hotel. Small and old room, no view (on an inner and disordered space), noise of conditioning system (or other stuff), very small bathroom. Just ok for one night. I would not arrange a longer staying there.
