The hotel is situated in a great area, just 5 minutes walk from the Colosseum or Piazza Venetia. We have booked a quadruple room, not that great but with enough space for 4 adults. We had a little problem with ants maybe because the room was at the 5th floor, with acces to the terrace. Valuable information was given from... More

Super helpful and friendly staff! Great area and price. We had a wonderful time in Rome. The staff recommended the best restaurants and gave a nice room. We really enjoyed our stay there and recommend this hotel a lot.

We stayed here for 3 nights, everybody was so friendly and kind. The room was not a luxury one but was clean and ok, it is an old building and has a good, unique italian feeling :) The hotel is next to the Colosseum, and almost every attractions can reach by walk. I recommend this hotel :)

We recently had several stays of a few nights each during September at Hotel Grifo. From the first meeting it was obvious the staff are excellent. Recommendations for local restaurants and where the best sights will be seen was the right advise in every instance. The location is excellent, just remember this is an old hotel and most rooms are... More

Lovely staff, clean room, comfy bed. Perfect location for us, 5 mins walk from colliseum/forum etc. Nice bars and restaurants around. Room and bathroom quite small but perfectly adequate. Breakfast menu/selection process is far more complicated than neccesary but quite amusing as well.

My wife and I stayed here for four nights in October 2014 at the start of a two week vacation in Italy. Long story short - the hotel was solid, the people were friendly and helpful, and I can't imagine a better location from which to explore Rome. Room: We booked a room in the annex building that is located... More

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
