My wife and I visited Italy for three weeks last July and stayed at Hotel Griffo for 7 days. We really enjoyed it and thought the Hotel staff was awesome. They were very knowledgeable and gave us tips on which attractions to see and how to be effective spenders regarding attractions so they don't take all your money. The hotel... More

I stayed in this hotel for 5 nights while visiting Rome with my sisters. The staff is really friendly and helpfull and the complimentary breakfast had more than enough choice. For the people that don't think the choice is enough, you can order crambled eggs for the little amount of 50 cents. The city is easy to walk or take... More

Nice hotel, well located but small. The toilet area is very small and I wonder if the chubby would ease to pick up a bar of soap on the floor. The tables in the restaurant are small and tight. It's a charming hotel, but a small charm. Is in a region of easy access to metro and I really go... More

My wife and I arrived back early this morning - we had four nights at Hotel Grifo. It was excellent - just what we wanted for a city break - not at all expensive, but good breakfast with ridiculously cheap prices for extras like 0.5 euros for scrambled eggs, or slices of cured ham or turkey or toast. The shower... More

When arriving to hotel Grifo we were immediately greeted by one of the friendly reception staff, who spoke good English. She gave us a map of Rome and highlighted all the best routes, attractions and food places. All of her suggestions were fantastic, especially "Pompi" tiramisu specialists! The hotel itself is fantastically located; less than a 10 minute walk from... More

Hotel Grifo is a friendly and well situated hotel. It is located close to the Roman Colosseum and all the other sightseeing places are within walking distance. The room itself was fine but it was always cold as the heating system was inefficient and the bathroom was totally unheated and was freezing. There was a lack of basic things in... More

Hotel Grifo is a small yet homey hoel. It is located close to the Roman Colosseum (10 min walk). The room itself was small but enough for two people to stay in. The designs are a bit old and probably outdated but the room is clean. The hotel also serves breakfast for free composed of bread, spreads, cereals, coffee, fruit... More

We stayed for 3 nights and most notably thought the location is great. Termini station 15 min walk, Colosseum and Roman Forum within 5 min walk and everything else within walking distance. Check in time is 2pm but they let you leave the bags in the lobby part if you arrive earlier. The rooms are small and basic, we found... More

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.
