We stayed tehre for three nights. The guesthouse was very nice and clean. Good WiFi and had air condition. The room was spacious and we also had a small balcony. Great location, close to the train station. We arrived in the late afternoon and had NO PROBLEM of getting in or finding the hotel. It was actually quit easy ;)... More

Stayed here for a long weekend in July 2014. The guesthouse is really nice clean comfy and quiet. Good value for the money. However, as some of the other reviews have mentioned, the reception situation is very strange apparently you have to be there by 2.30pm to check in or you run the risk of not getting in. It is...

Five excellent ensuite modern rooms with fridges occupy the 3rd floor of the building. There is a lift. The staff are so friendly and helpful. There are two of them who work alternate days and they really were wonderful. Place is easy to find. Walk from north end of Via Merulana and it's on the left shortly before the first... More

Very cute, nice, clean hotel. Good breakfast-includes scrambled eggs! Enough food to get you going. Wonderful staff-very friendly (make sure you let them know what time you will be arriving). There is not a large sign out front-can be difficult to find. We took a cab from the airport and the driver was able to find it based on the... More

We got a good deal on the Merulana Inn and had never been to Rome before. We emailed before we arrived to make sure that someone would be there to meet us. The directions on the website were spot on and we found the Merulana in easily. There to meet us was Roberta - a very friendly and welcoming lady.... More

Excellent choice whether you're travelling for business or leisure. Judy, who is a receptionist among other things she does there, is lovely and super-friendly. She even made me scrambled eggs when I was a bit late for breakfast one morning! There is no receptionist on duty in the evening hours - you use your key card to open the front... More

I visited Rome in October for three nights and booked to stay at the Merulana Inn after much research. As explained by many reviewers, this place is a large flat converted into rooms providing a service which perfectly suited my needs ie. the comfort of a modern hotel with the personal touch of a B&B via staff who will happily...

Very happy with our stay at the Merulana Inn this October! Great location within walking distance of many attractions and very close to the Termini station. The rooms were both spotlessly clean on arrival and cleaned and replenished (inc. fresh towels) each day while we were out. Although we were an hour later then expected for arrival we were met...

We booked this place through Expedia. We knew that it wasn't a full service hotel so followed the instructions to inform the Merulana Inn of our arrival time so that someone could be there (particularly important for us as we were arriving at around midnight). We tried emailing and calling but got no response from the email and the phone... More

We had 3 nights in Rome and stayed here and really enjoyed it. It's really close to the main train Rome Termini, about a block away and also within walking distance to the colesseum and Roman Forum. We actually walked everywhere from our accomodation, with the furthest attraction being a good hours walk, the Vatican. Definitely worth a visit when... More
