I didn't want to write this review until we had spent more time in other Italian hotels to compare as I found some things a little odd about Hotel Grifo. First let me say that the staff here are absolutely fantastic and really will help you "survive" Rome. Heed their advices and your stay in the city will be enhanced... More

We thought we booked a hotel and were very surprised at the low quality for the 150 euros per night we paid for a double room. The room was in 3rd floor with an elevator that didn't work. We were denied two keys for the room, even though we needed a key to open the front door and the door... More

Hotel Grifo is in a great location in Rome. Walk to the Coliseum, Forum and Palatine Hill. Right on the bus line for Vatican city. The hotel staff is very friendly and helpful. Ask Rosa for dinner recommendations in this delightful neighborhood. Breakfast is included with lots of choices. A roof-top terrace is a great place for a quiet glass... More

This was our third stay at Hotel Grifo. That's a statement in and of itself. We have been to Rome multiple times and pick it for its location, value, neighborhood feel and lovely Staff. At this point, it feels like coming home. On our other trips it was a family affair. Our girls loved the cool vibe of the neighborhood,... More

There could have been more choice for us at breakfast but it was more than adequate. If you enjoy walking then walk, 10 mins to coliseum, the forums, trajans column and 15mins... More

If you want a reasonably priced hotel for a night or two within walking distance of many of Rome's main attractions this hotel is worth considering. Luxurious it isn't but nothing too much to complain about. Helpful English speaking staff at reception and close to good cafes and restaurants. Would I go back? Possibly.

Staying in Monti

Neighborhood Profile
Monti
Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighborhood just west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as it continues to fight for its reputation as a magnet for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season, quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its cobblestone streets. The neighborhood supports unique and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at Piazza della Madonna dei Monti anytime after lunch and you'll always find something going on.
