I stayed here in April 2014 for a long week end and would agree with most of the reviews. Rome is expensive for accomodation and this is ideal if you are on a budget. I booked a single room but I got a double-it would have been rather small for two people though. The room had everything I needed, including... More

Stay : 1 week in Avril 2012. Very nice little hotel for travelers on a budget. The location is absolutely ideal, it's a 2min to Piazza del Popolo. We could walk anywhere to the city centre. There is no breakfast room. The staff is nice. We were given a clean room with a modern bathroom. It was small, but we... More

I have a mixed feelings about this place. Good thing is the staff are mostly friendly, if not all, room clean and comfy, location good--right at piazza popolo, close to many things, Villa Borghese is real close--but the room is not quiet. Luckily the guy we talked to is very friendly and he gave us another room, which is really... More

As noted by others the rooms are small, but clean, close to trains, and within walking distance to many sites. If you have to use the lift be prepared to wait. Some of the staff was very helpful, others seemed disinterested and not well informed. There are some terrific restaurants close by. All-in-all, nothing about which to really rave or... More

I stayed in a room #14 as a solo traveller. I expected a smaller room as it was called a single room in my confirmation. But it turned out to be a standard room for two with a double bed. There was everything I might need in the room and nothing to complain about. The furniture was in a good... More

Well designed, spotless room. Small but we weren't in it that much. Equivalent of £50 per person per night so expecting basic. Mum slept fine but I was awake until the outside noise stopped around 1am. You can hear everything in the hotel as well so take good ear plugs and you'll be fine.

A nice, clean hotel - five minutes to the subway at Piazza del Popolo and five minutes by foot to Ara Pacis Augustae. The room is small, but has everything you need. Very quiet for being Rome too. The only downside was that Okapi does not serve any breakfast. There is a bar a few minutes away though, where you... More

Stayed for 3 nights from 17/05/2012. Booked this accommodation in early April and requested a twin room. We were allocated a double room at the back of the hotel. Ok as I was travelling with my daughter but might cause a few problems otherwise. Room was small and bathroom even smaller. Very clean but the sheets had a few visible... More

On north side of Rome - close to everything - metro stop near by, but you can walk to Vatican, Forum, Trevi Fountain, etc. Great room, nice people, a great escape during the day - what is not to like!

Okapi Rooms is a decent medium-range option near Piazza del Popolo, near restaurants and not far from several major sights. The hotel is fairly simple and the label 'boutique' perhaps suggests too much, but given the general price levels in Rome this is a good deal. The rooms are small, clean and well-equipped, with airco but only Italian TV channels.... More
