Ideal location away from hustle and bustle but easy walking distance to major sights and bars/restaurants. Beautiful view from balcony of ancient monuments/ruins. Welcoming, helpful staff, nothing too much trouble and always smiling. Rooms clean, spacious and comfortable. All in working order. Breakfast basic but did the job. Great ambience at nearby bar, again , really friendly. Loved it!

Easy to find. Reception area very smart and modern. We (2 adults 2 children) were assigned a room without a view of the forum and one yet to be modernised. With only 1 day and night to explore Rome this was a real disappointment. But I should have requested a better room at the time of booking so my own... More

The Velabro was just perfect - a great location menaing we could walk everywhere, with views from our rooms to Roman antiquities - perfect! We had a 1 bedroom family apartment - it was a great size with separate living room/diner... More

Here is the good and the bad in a nutshell: The GOOD: In general the location is fantastic if you are there for sightseeing. It is a short 15 minute walk to the subway, Colusieum, and Roman ruins of the Forum. History is all around you. Also just a 5 minute walk to cross the river into a bonanza of... More

For someone who spent A LOT of time perusing hotels in Europe looking for well priced, good sized rooms, I was happy to find Palazzo al Velabro. We spent two nights in the hotel/apartment whilst we were visiting the Colosseum, Roman Forum, Palatine Hill, Circus Maximus, Isola Tiberina, Trastavere district, Altar of the Fatherland and so on. For these locations,... More

We stayed here for 6 nights recently and found it was a perfect base for exploring Rome. We had a one bedroom room and while it was a little run down (worn carpets, shower over the bath, walls looking a bit dirty where peoples bags have bumped them ext) we had nothing to complain about. We enjoyed having a little... More

From the outside this seems a very plain Hotel, not much out of the ordinary.Only once inside does one realise from the massive walls, tall ceilings, and chaotic floor plan that this is in fact a very old building. The reception has been very smartly renovated in a stylish modern design. Check in was straight forward, and through out our... More

We recently spent five nights at this hotel. The check in was easy then we were shown to our one bedroom apartment. The apartment was spacious with an entrance hall, lounge room with kitchenette, bathroom and bedroom. Breakfast was served in the cafe on the ground floor. Basic continental style was of a good standard. We bought produce from a... More
