It's located in a quiet street in the district of Rione Monti. You can easily get there by Metro (stop at Cavour) or by bus (No64 in Via Nazionale). Reception is at Hotel Antica Locanda which is just a few metres up. Rooms are quite small but nicely decorated. Our shower was powerful. We had to change the room because... More

Arrived to find a note on the door, telling us reception was located at the hotel a block up the road, which was a bit worrying at first, seeing as we had booked on Priceline, but no cause for alarm - they just share a reception. Friendly staff at reception and they let us leave our bags until check in... More

Great location, close to the Coliseum, Termini. The area is very safe and relaxing atmosphere with antique shops, cafes, gourmet deserts and ice-cream just around the corner. Breakfast is served in a café nearby , just coffee and croissants, but that's not a standard American Breakfast- a good European Breakfast. Cappuccino was perfect!!! Loved the location- right around the corner... More

We stayed at Il Covo on May 16, 2014, a few nights ago. On our first night after a long trip we arrived at the hotel and at 1:am as I went to the bathroom, I found the whole floor flooded with water. My husband went to the reception which was a block away and asked for help. At first... More

What is great about this place is the location... is a 17 minute walk from Stazione Termini (main train and bus station), and even when it doesn't look like it at a first glimpse, it's safe. It's also 4 blocks away from one metro station that will take you to a lot of places, and about 6 blocks away from... More

Upon arrival the staff were lovely, there was no lift so you had to carry your bags up the stairs but the staff were very helpful. The bedroom and bathroom were very clean and the bed was made everyday along with fresh towels. We had an issue one night in our room with the power and the female day staff... More

On first day our room was not available, so we were moved to Antica Locanda. Next day we had to move out in the morning, but we got our room only after 14:00 (there were around 40 degrees in Rome in thos period, so a place for midday siesta would have been very useful). Noone helped us to move the... More

Being Rome novice's my boyfriend and arrived at the hotel by Taxi, using the hotel postcode programmed into the SatNav. It was getting quite dark by this point and it seemed as if we had been dropped off in an alley outside a derelict old horror-movie style building titled 'il covo.'

The rooms rented by Il Covo are scattered around several buildings and I was in Antica Locanda, a small hotel two minutes up the road from the main Il Covo building. The staff is very friendly and helpful. There are no lifts and I was up four flights of narrow wooden stairs, which was daunting at the end of a... More

I stayed at this hotel during my second visit to Rome at 23rd of july. Similar to previous traveler we book for II Covo but they gave us a room in an apartment block which was 10 minutes walk away from the reception and the cafe for breakfast. The condition of the room was bad and worst facility. The tragic... More
