I visited this hotel for my anniversary in February 2014. Outside looks outdated and in desperate need of a renovation, however the lobby is a surprise! Very nicely decorated. The rooms leave a lot to be desired but depending on the price you pay I guess there is nothing to complain about. Breakfast isn't something to look forward to, just... More

I visited this hotel March 2014 as part of an university trip, firstly the location is amazing very close to Romes centre and with the trams located outside you were able to travel around with ease. The outside of the hotel is surrounded by ruins giving it a real nice feel, walking into the reception area there are extremely friendly... More

A very nice warm and welcoming hotel! Rooms I was in a room of three and the beds were well spaced out and being cramped was not a problem at all! The Beds were of good quality and comfortable. We had a big window which we could open if the room got a bit stuffy, which it did! Bathroom was... More

The Hotel Portamaggiore (or HPM as written on the door) is a gem! The moment you walk into the lobby, its warm and welcoming. It's not in central Rome but walkable to the Colosseum. Also as previously mentioned, the 571 bus stops right out front (be warned it doesn't return to the front door, but just down the street)... It's... More

This hotel was an excellent value in a city where hotel prices are high. The rooms are clean and comfortable and there are several nice restaurants nearby. The hotel staff is pleasant, especially Paolo, who went out of his way to be helpful and friendly. Although I agree with other reviewers who pointed out that the included breakfast offers a... More

Front of house staff friendly enough but could've been more helpful. Gave us wrong room key initially which resulted on us walking in on another persons room with all there personal belongings around!! We had booked a double superior (the highest spec room) and it felt more like a standard room and was quite small - don't be fooled by... More

We were booked into this hotel by our travel agent for the first two nights of our Italian adventure. The reception was friendly and helpful and assured us our room was in the interior of the building and therefore quieter than most rooms. Sadly not the case, the walls are so thin that people talking in the corridor sounded as... More

This is the worst hotel I've been to. First, it is very bad located, second the hotel is surrounded by horrible neighborhoods, third rooms are old and small and finally breakfast is not tasty at all. The reason why I chose this hotel was the price. If you decide to stay in this hotel please follow these suggestions. 1. Take... More
