Stayed here for 1 night and that was enough. Moved to another hotel for the other 2 nights in Rome. Definitely not a 4 star wifi was down in reception and not in the best area. Much better value for money heading the other way from the train station which was the only good thing about it being just around... More

Its very near Termini, only 5 mins walk. Clean & nice hotel but room is small, no air condition, & very small bath room. Staff no smile but some how helpful. Breakfast ok. Wifi only at lobby. Don't expect too much & you'll satisfy with it.

Having read some of the earlier reviews I was somewhat apprehensive about spending a week here. Certainly the room we had was on the small side and the décor dark but this is a city hotel in an old building. I would suggest if pale cream décor and bedlinen is important that it would probably be better to book Holiday... More

Well, I had high expectations for this place being that it had been classed as a 4 star hotel. Unfortunately, the rooms were small, noisy, ran out of hot water two mornings in a row, had poor quality breakfast with stale muesli not a double as books but two singles with single bed clothes on it rather than two singles...

The best thing about Luce is location: in a quiet street, 5 minutes walk from Termini. The rest is average – small lobby, narrow stairs, and staff speaking a bit of English, not very friendly or helpful. The rooms are tiny, but very clean and beautiful, bathroom and shower are also very small. I reccomend it to younger people.

The location of the hotel is definitely a plus. Close to Termini Station (5-min. walk) and to many restaurants nearby. Staff was helpful. However there was a strange thing. The key to your room is a traditional metal key with a weight attached. When you leave the hotel - you return the key to the reception and when you come... More

Had a first-floor room. Air conditioning seems to be quite old and is very noisy. The doors I hoped would lead to a balcony actually open to the roof of the restaurant, with the accompanying array of smells all day long. Also, it is possible to walk over it to other first-floor rooms (maybe enter from outside if they don't... More

Staff not very friendly or helpful. Our room was a bit warm(centralized air) and they said they could do nothing about it. Anytime we had a question or needed to get the key to our room, it was like we had just asked them to give us their first born. Hotel is close to main terminal which makes it easy... More
