Our room and the bathroom were very clean, but basic. We stayed here for three nights and hardly spent any time in the room, so basic and clean is what we needed. The breakfast was ample, true all cold foods, but it is inclusive and it does include cold meats and cheese, yogurt and hot coffee, in addition to pastries... More

The rooms are very basic-small. Bathroom very small. Walls are paper thin. BUT how much time do you spend in a room in Rome-not much! Rooms were clean. 15 minute walk to the metro. We found the staff friendly and helpful. The breakfast was adequate-pastries,ham and cheese.

After staying in an awful 3 star hotel in Turkey earlier on in the year, I was very anxious about what to expect at Hotel Porto Maggiore. However I needn't have worried as the place was in good condition and the staff were friendly. When we arrived at the hotel the porter kindly stored our bags away in a secure... More

I chose this hotel for our student group because of its location. It is near the Termini station which puts it close to restaurants and shopping. It's about a 10 minute walk to the Metro station which we used daily, but unfortunately could never figure out the buses and street cars that also stop across the street. Best of all,... More

We stayed for four nights as part of a school group visiting Rome. For our purposes, the hotel was perfectly suitable. After having read many negative reviews, I was expecting a dive. However, Hotel Porta Maggiore is a typical budget hotel. The bathrooms were on the cramped side and the double bed on the hard side. We spent so little... More

The hotel was very nice and close to trams and buses. I was a bit annoyed to find out that I had to pay tourist tax of 4 Euros per person per night when we arrived. Some breakfast staff rather brisque in manner.

I'm shocked by some of the negative reviews for this hotel. Let's start with the salient facts - it's a low cost option for Rome and it's not in the fanciest or the most central area. That said the area is safe and there are lots of nice bars and restaurants within easy walking distance. Due to us having to... More

Definitely NOT a 3star hotel. The room was dark and dirty. There were holes in the wall, covered with plaster and not painted over. The floors were not clean. I switched to another room and can't say it was any better. The towels in the bathroom were paper thin. The drain stoppers were not in the sink or tub and... More

Stayed here for 4 nights. Overall the experience was a bit disappointing and I won't recommend this. I guess Rome is expensive and even paying more than 100€ per night is not a warranty. 3 stars are too much in my opinion. The list of complains go on: The bathroom is super old, and the towels are paper thin. The... More
