Unbelievably tiny it is actually kinda of funny. It was their small double. Also, the bathroom was super small and we had no place to hang towels so we... More

Small rooms, but nice..you can get over this inconvenience since this is an old building in the historical part of the city. I would go again on my next trip to... More

Very hard to choose a decent good value hotel in Rome with so many on offer but this one ticks all the boxes, having trawled Trip Advisor we choose the Hotel De Monti based on reviews however a few days before arrival we were informed that the hotel had been flooded and would not be available for our stay, we...

Hotel Grifo is located in a good spot, very near to colosseum and Forum Marinum. Nearby are also good reaturants and a good quality enoteca. The room was small and in the top floor (penthouse), and the bad thing was that the AC didn't work. They gave us a fan from the reception and with that the room cooled down,... More

Broken air conditioning + loud streets with windows open = no sleep. Unclear when or if air conditioning will be fixed. Otherwise staff courteous, friendly and knowledgeable about area. Breakfast very nice.

As a surprise trip for my partner's 30th birthday I booked this hotel and am very glad that I did! The location is excellent, very close to the Colosseum and Roman Forum, which was excellent for evening strolls. Although located off the main street of Cavour, the hotel has easy access to the Cavour metro station and is surrounded by... More

My partner and I chose this hotel due to how close it is to come of the sights, namely the Colosseum. Upon arrival the gentleman behind the desk was very courteous, and we found the staff very friendly throughout the duration of our stay. The desk staff were always very polite and happy to give advice on places to go... More

We booked two different stays over the past few weeks and both were perfect! The entire staff is wonderful- i'm afraid to name names as i'll leave someone out-but here goes! Rosa, Allessandro, Simon, Georgia, were all very helpful and always pleasant! We love the neighborhood as you can walk to the Cavour Metro Stop, the Colosseum and there is... More

Stayed here April 2014 - The hotel is in a fantastic location, within walking distance to the Colosseum and other major attractions. The hotel staff were very helpful, able to recommend where to visit and eat. There are plenty of nice restaurants with walking distance. On arrival the receptionist spent a good 15 minutes explaining to us where to go... More
