pros: Good service, breakfast was fine for a breakfast buffet, free wifi, rooms were acceptably clean cons: not best location. It is not located on the main tourist map. It is just a tiny bit south of it. (located right beside the metro station - Pyramide) so you can get anywhere fast, but I didn't feel very safe in that... More

Just came back from a lovely weekend in Rome. I chose this hotel because of 50% discount and paid around 12 euros per night. For that money it is very good choice. The hotel is situated veeery close to the train station and metro stations. It makes the place noisy but in acceptable way. Basic breakfast with delicious Italian coffee... More

Pro: The hotel was 2 metro stops away from the Colosseum, had clean rooms and the breakfast was very good. Friendly staff. Cons: The railway lines passed just a few meters from the hotel so the noise was terrible. Also close to a road with very intense traffic which added up to the noise from the train. Our closet smelt... More

Basic clean hotel close to the Metro, could be a little noisy,but didn't bother us too much. Great restaurants locally and within walking distance of all of the tourist attractions. Would of been nice to have tea and coffee facilities in the room. Breakfast a little disappointing. Good value for money.

The hotel is a short walking distance from the Ostiense Train station and the Piramide Metro Station. Around a 20 minute walk away from the Colosseum. There are nice restaurants in the vecinity (via Luigi Galvani). The rooms are simple and clean. The breakfast was a bit dissapointing.

Nice enough hotel for the price, clean, friendly staff. It is only 2 underground stops from the Colosseo and 4 from Termini; the metro station is less than 5 minutes away. If you are going to Ostia Antica or to the seaside, the train there is close too (Ostiense station). It can be noisy as one side is facing the... More

Good money for a Saturday night booking. It is quite close to the train tracks but it's not so loud that I couldn't sleep. The location was good for us as we wanted to stay near Trastevere, which is only about a 10/15 minute walk away, so that we could go to the bars and restaurants on Saturday night and... More

Hotel Primus Roma is by far the worst hotel experience we've had. I can't believe that the hotel has 3 stars ... no way. The hotel is located just few meters from the railway tracks (6 tracks), which means that trains are constantly driving by, it's so loud that it's impossible ti sleep. The breakfast is very bad, nothing is... More
