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.

We have 2 different stays in a triple bedroom both time, the first time we were at the 3 floor and the second at the first, the room at the third was... More

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

Was in Rome for 4 days at Grifo and it was perfect. The location is amazing, the colosseum is just down the street. The rooms were comfortable, we had a 3 person room and each of us got our own bed that was comfortable, and the air conditioning worked great (had to turn it down a lot actually). The breakfast...

Located between Colosseum and Trevi Fountain, easy walking distance to all of old Rome, this hotel is great! We had a front room, looking out over the "street". Room was small, but perfect, very clean, breakfast lovely. Highly recommend this hotel, helpful staff too!
