We stayed at this hotel for two nights in July. It was a pleasant stay. The staff at the reception as well as at the breakfast hall were friendly and spoke English reasonably well. The breakfast spread was really good and filling. Rooms are neat and bathrooms are pretty big and clean. The hotel is about 10 minutes on foot... More

If you are arriving into Rome via rail (and even if you fly into Rome, take the Leonardo Express to Termini Roma) - this hotel is then an easy10 minutes walk. The locality supports many 3-star hotels and a multitude of inexpensive dining establishments. Our room was pleasantly larger than expected - the bathroom, again, was a surprise (I guess... More

Stayed her for three nights with my wife and two girls, nice simple accommodation, TV in the kids room, great little breakfast (which was continually refurbished!), nice and close to the railway station for those trips to the other great places to see in Rome, and reasonably priced.

We just arrived back from Rome and I would stay at the San Marco again! Although upon our arrival, there was a problem with our room and they had to move us to another hotel for one night, they could not have been more accommodating! They called us a taxi to the next hotel, which really wasn't far away, and... More

Very friendly staff worked with us to stay two extra days, plus stored our luggage for free when we asked. Excellent breakfast buffet--far superior to other hotels in Italy. Rooms were quiet and spacious. Great value.

I was looking for something close to the train station and found this hotel online. When walking there it seemed like it was an a sketchy area with a lot of loiters on the streets surrounding the hotel. We were only staying here for one night, but wish we could have found something else. The room was freezing and we... More

Good hotel Plus: 1. Nice, spacious, clean rooms 2. Tasty breakfast. 3. Nice view from the window - feeling like in the center of Rome. 4. Railway station, Metro Station, big bus stop is 5 minutes away. 5. Free wifi. Cons: 1. On the street noisy. 2. The center really long walk.

This hotel is amazing 300 meters from the Termini, walking distance. All the staff are cheerful, helpful and friendly, nothing is too much trouble from timetables to finding a place on the maps with best way to get there, local good restaurants etc. Lisa is an amazing receptionist, keep up the good work you are an asset to the hotel...

Don't stay here if you don't have to. We were disappointed with this Hotel. On check-in we were told that we were staying at another Hotel around the corner that night due to air conditioning problems (and that hotel was better the San Marco). We checked in the next morning and were on the 4th floor, with 1 small elevator... More

We stayed here for three nights in March 2013. The room was clean and had a small balcony overlooking the street. 5 minutes walk to the metro and the railway station. A 20 minute walk to the forum and historic centre down via nationale. There is a pleasant bar next door to the hotel and many other bars and restaurants... More
