My wife and I stayed at Hotel Massimo for 5 nights. The hotel is clean, comfortable and conveniently located close to Termini station. Our host, Samy, was great. Friendly and cheerful, he went out of his way to make us feel at home. Highly recommended.

Stayed in this hotel for 2 nights and we truly had a great stay. Staff was friendly and room was clean, spacious and comfortable. The shower in the bathroom was a bit small but clean. Breakfast was sufficient, ranging from cereal, toast, fruits, yogurt and free flow of coffee. Another upside was the location which was nearby Termini main train... More

We stayed here as part of a rail excursion visiting Northern Italy. It is conveniently situated in Via Cavour close to the Termini (the main rail station) and not far from the ancient centre. The room was quite small but comfortable but it have no beverage tray in the room which we all come to expect these days. The restaurant... More

Great little place to stay being convenient for the Trevi Fountain and other attractions. Cheap, cheerful and basic accommodation was all we needed in Rome as we would be out all day and night and the hotel would just be a place to crash.

My girlfriend and I stayed here for 4 nights in December and thanks to Sammy and Gabriel for their assistance. They were great. The hotel is only 15mins from Termini and a little hard to see as the name plate is small but it's across the street from the Inka Chicken restaurant and just past the Ristorante al 39. It's... More

I was in Italy for 4 weeks (Nov-Dec 2013) and Rome was my first stop. Room was clean with working TV (Italian channels) and mini fridge and with bathroom. Breakfast was simple - juices, coffee, cheese, ham or salami, bread, and fruits. Sammy, the hotel receptionist, was very helpful and knowledgeable. Reception open from 7-11AM and from 4-7PM. Termini is... More

Arrived at this hotel at 10pm as it was after 7pm you are instructed to collect your room keys in the hotel next door which was fine as it was seconds away. Once inside the hotel you find a small reception and breakfast area which is just perfect for central Rome. The room was spacious with an en suite bathroom... More

My girlfriend and I stayed for three nights and very much enjoyed our stay. Gabrielle on reception was very good to us and kindly let us leave our luggage after check out as we flew out later that day. Breakfast is simple like others say but still filling and varied. The coffee machine is great. Very conveniently located near Termini... More

Great little place. Clean and in a great location. Breakfast isn't great and could do with some variation as the same thing everyday can get very boring. Worth staying at if you are on a budget and want to be able to get to the main attractions quickly and easily.

We stayed in this hotel couple of nights, in a very nice triple room. The room was clean and comfortable and the breakfast was basic but good (wonderfull coffee machine :)). From Termini to the Hotel you walk less then 5 minutes. The staff is GREAT...Thank you Sami and Gabriel for making us smile each morning
