Hotel located in 10 min walk to Colliseum and Roman Forum. We were given the room above the 4th floor (you have to use the spiral staircase after exiting the elevator). The door in the bathroom had a hole instead of the lock. The floor was filled with ants. After us making the complain, we were moved to other room... More

Stayed here for one night Oct. 12 2014 to the 13th. We were greeted by Angelo who could not have been more helpful. It was our first time in Rome and he pointed out what restaurants, wine bars, ATM's, and sights to see. It is located 5 minutes walking distance from the Colosseum and other sights. Breakfast was included, nothing... More

Hotel Grifo is in a great location - authentic neighborhood with lots of good restaurants, and within walking distance to all the major sights. It was also impressively quiet on the top floor. We were warmly welcomed by Luigi, who gave us excellent restaurant recommendations. The included breakfast was a great perk. We enjoyed the having the terrace on the... More

Great ending to our month long European trip. You cannot beat the location!!! Only a 10 - 15 minute walk from the train station. 10 minute walk to the Colosseum!!! The hotel itself was very nice, it was old but very clean. The staff were very welcoming and friendly. Down the road from hotel Grifo is without doubt the best... More

Very central in the oldest part of Rome. Within easy walking distance of the main sites. Lots of great Restaurants close by. Our room on the third floor was very comfortable and clean. They warn you that it is a very old building so may not have all facitlites. We were made very welcome by the family and other staff.... More

Great location for a good price. You can walk to the Colosseum or the metro is approximately 2 blocks away. Expect small rooms, very narrow twin beds and even smaller shower but I would definitely return. The air conditioning worked well, rooms were quiet, good breakfast and staff were excellent.

This hotel is centrally located and a relative short walk from most of the main attractions. The hotel is situated on a relatively minor road withe very limited traffic - so it very quiet. The staff are all excellent and helpful in any way that they can. Plenty of information is given on getting the best of your stay in... More

Very good location in the Monti neighborhood. Easy walk to Colosseum. Good restaurants, wine bar, and Irish pub very close. Staff was very helpful with parking options. Had a 4th floor room with a nice veranda to sip wine on. Furniture is all utilitarian; could definitely use an interior designer. Would definitely recommend as a reasonable place to stay close...

Very helpful staff who helped us make the most of our stay in Rome. The room and breakfast were adequate. However the shower was really small. The little street where the hotel was situated was quiet and there was a lovely square around the corner to enjoy a drink. Not far from the Colosseum. We would definitely go back to... More
