“great value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

I stayed at the guesthouse for one night- in the main building where the reception is located. It is located very close to the termini, from where you can access 2 subway lines and the express train to the airport. It is within walking distance to lots of shops and restaurants, and the streets around it are very busy at night so even though this isn't the most beautiful/historic area, it doesn't feel unsafe. (I am from NYC, I would say this area is comparable to the mid-town south area, just east of Penn station.) The room is very nice/clean, probably the most comfortable bed I have ever experienced in Europe! The staff (especially Federica) were very friendly and happy to help you. Overall, it is a great value.

I was really surprised with this guesthouse. I've been to good hotels which are not as good as this guesthouse. It's very centrally located,just 5 minute walk from Termini which is Rome's main train and bus station. The area is full of eateries and shops.
This guesthouse is in a block of appartments on the ground floor and you feel like being at home. Try to print a map before you go as there are no signs indicating this guesthouse. The staff was very friendly and everything was explained in detail. Rooms were very clean and had even a small fridge which we had milk and juices complimentary. B'fast was typical italian so don t expect too much. Furniture looks all new and nicely decorated. Bathrooom was good size but the shower was small. I would definetly go back when in Rome

Stayed in the Dem Guesthouse early nov. it's a great little place. I travel a lot and spend time in lots of little places and if in doubt normally use ibis hotel. But read the reviews on here so gave it a try its very close to station but I would print out a google map beforehand just so you know cause it is a few streets down. It's in Termini which is very central as well and affordable for going out to eat. Rome you would get good food anyway unless you go to outskirts as its very touristy so don't expect to much but four of us ain't for around 50 euros plus wine. Anyway the Dem Guesthouse is located in an old building but has a very new feel to it. Rooms are quite large and come with Internet but signal isn't very strong but could be worse. Fresh towels every day, slippers lots of little amenities and is very like and ibis or travelodge basic but clean. It is in a great location and I found the staff very friendly and helpful. They also have maps you can take with best places to go on them. I loved this place and would almost certainly use again

I just want to tell you how happy I and my group were with Dem Guesthouse. We had the greatest time in Rome which we will remember in our heart about Rome. This would not happen without the dedicated sincere and hard work from Alessia Marciano. Please accept our thank you and appreciation to make this trip perfect.

Same like other commenters; I highly recommend this guesthouse... Lots of things that I can input as positive and some minor things for development ( please do not miss; not bad but may be beeter )

What is Good:
1- Perfect location... Only 2 minutes away from Termini Station which you can reach all the urban transportation channels; also to Hop In-Hop Off Buses; or a good start point to explore Rome by walking.
2-Clean and Enough room facilities... Do not look for a 4* Hotel; they are offering you a clean room, Clean Bath, large Roman Windows and comfortable beds... Really good and enough
3- Coffee Machine is just close to reception; anything that you wish is ready to your choice...
4- Only 5 Rooms was in our guesthouse... So Silent, Friendly and Casual Athmosphere...
5- The breakfast was previously at Hotel ( direct serving to Room ) but because legal needs; they are giving you a ticket that you can get breakfast from a restaurant which is 15 metres away ( you can see from your window )

Development Areas
1- Refrigerator is not working properly ( at least in my room ) Probably need maintenance; not a big issue but must be checked.
2- Breakfast Ticket is new also for workers; so they may miss to give you... Feel free to remind it... They are lovely; can recover it quickly.

As a Summary...

I highly recommend this guesthouse... If you are not looking for a 4* or 5* Business Hotel; Turati will get you satisfied both with service, location and cost efficiency.

Room Tip: I was at No 3 and quite enough... It was at street side and if you would like to use a fully quite r...
