Excellent location for all the top sites. All in walking distance except Vatican. Super friendly staff and quaint hotel in general. Perfect for a city trip even with kids but not too many. Rooms are small especially the bathroom but clean. Great little place to stay!

Don't stay here. Absolutely appalled at how we were treated during our stay. Forcing your guests to sleep outside in the early hours of the morning after a hospital visit is not my idea of a satisfactory hotel. For your own good, just go somewhere else. Terrible food, terrible service.

This hotel is fine as long as you do not have high expectations. Good for those on a budget, but not for those trying to impress their partner with a romantic trip. Firstly we did not expect too much as we paid very little, the room was drab and a little small. There was a fair amount of road noise... More

Excellent location 10 minutes walk from the station and attractions. Extremely friendly staff. Nice old building, simply furnished but comfortable room. Basic but nice breakfast included. Wifi in room.

Room wasn't quite as nice as the photograph, but perfectly serviceable. All the staff I met were lovely, very helpful (offered a spare travel adaptor, etc.), spoke good English. Great location, don't worry about the looks of the place on StreetView.

This was a clean, conveniently located hotel and the staff were really helpful. The only slight problems were the limited breakfast and we had to pay extra for the air conditioning. However, the air con was really efficient (essential in Rome in July). Our expectations were low as this was only a 2 star hotel but we were pleasantly surprised... More

This was the worst hotel I had in Rome. The attendants aren't nice at all, they only care for their business (pay attention: they will find every possible way to snatch some extra money from you); they also made me feel very unconfortable with my beeing a single-traveler, making difficulties for the keys of my room, for the hour in...

The Oriente, in Rome's China town, is fine if you know what to expect. A few floors of a very old apartment block have been made into a hotel : you can't use the lift so be prepared for a bit of a hike to reception, then more to your rooms. We were a school group, they sensibly put the... More

We stayed in the Oriente in September for 3 nights to see the sights of ancient Rome! The place is fantastic, well worth a visit. Our hotel experience was fine - nothing exceptional to report, other than the extremely friendly, multi lingual front of house. He was ever so friendly and gave us lots of good advice. Look out for... More
