In addtion difficult to find place at first (fortunately we had taken airport shuttle) The staff prompt at answering emails as they are there forma... More

We stayed 5 nights. Room simple and very clean. Excellent location: you are literally walking distance from centre of Rome! For British tourist: 2 min from British Embassy. Hotel staff VERY helpful. Several nice restaurants nearby. Laundry/ dry cleaning services: downstairs.

Room was very large and clean. Staff were all very friendly, and eager to help in any way they could. Even though I did not purchase the breakfast offered at the hotel, the staff would prepare cappuccino's when asked. They were reasonably priced and delicious! It is nothing fancy but a safe, secure, clean hotel in a good area of... More

I stayed at Hotel Porta Pia with a group of other 18 year old girls. Frankly, we were expecting a much grottier experience than we got considering the price. We were pleasantly surprised to arrive to what was, in fact, a thoroughly decent hotel! Hidden away in a building of apartments, we felt very safe being in, and leaving our... More

We stayed at Porta Pia for five nights in August 2014 and had a lovely holiday. When you walk down Via Messina, you might be forgiven for thinking the hotel has gone, but it hasn't! Since the building was refurbished, they are no longer allowed to put a sign up outside advertising their presence. Instead you have to find their... More

This hotel is a very good option for a nice staying in Rome: centric (Metro Station Castro Pretorio is 10 min away walking), good price and excellent service by its staff! Also, you can find Via Borghese park near. It also has free wifi, A/C and nice rooms. Recommended!

Small hotel with small rooms located in a living building. Meanwhile, I have nothing to say against the hotel. Good location to explore Rome, walking distance to some of main places to see. You may reach all other places by bus 62. To finalize...nothing special, there are dozens of similar hotels in the city and Porta Pio hotel is one... More
