“Excellent hotel just outside of Rome proper”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2014

Rome was the second stop on my fiancée and my trip to Europe last year. She did some advanced research for each city to figure out how to travel safely, comfortably and also stay inside our budget. Relais 6 was the answer for our Roman leg.

We live in Montreal, Canada, so I'm going to use our own city as a reference here. Like Rome, Montreal has a subway system (called the Metro(politain) like in Paris). Staying at Relais 6 is like staying in NDG (Notre-Dame-de-Grace) in Montreal. It's slightly outside of the main city, but connected by the subway. In fact, the Relais 6 is only about a 5 minute walk from the subway station. So at Relais 6 you can experience the benefits of staying at a VERY nice hotel for MUCH less than in the city centre, and you are still only about 15-20 minutes from wherever you want to go in Central Rome! For example, we left our room at 8:30 AM and were looking at the Coliseum by 8:50!

**Bonus: the subway station near Relais 6 is VERY clean and devoid of the gypsies that hustle you near the token machines in other subway stations throughout Rome. I recommend getting your tickets here for your return trip as well (or just get a day pass!)**

As I hinted earlier, the hotel is VERY nice. Not the largest of rooms, but very, very clean and a decent bathroom as well. The buffet breakfast is great, and the terrace in the back is very relaxing. The terrace was open for use at breakfast AND at night. Both nights we stayed at Relais 6 we were sipping on wine enjoying the night air. Just in back of the terrace is a World War 1/2 museum. Apparently the owner of Relais 6 is a collector, so if you are interested in such things, you may be able to browse his collection. We didn't visit ourselves, but it did look very interesting!

The staff were friendly and helpful. There was an error on our room bill that was simply and easily resolved with no stress. Nothing can ruin the start of your day like having to argue about something like money whilst dealing with a language barrier! However all was clarified very quickly and cordially (there was a charge from another room ... the numbers were inverted. Simple fix.)

Should my fiancée and I return to Rome (we didn't stay nearly long enough to see half of the things we meant to, so we quite possibly will) I am positive we will stay here again. It was that convenient and that good.

Dear Jason H,
Thank you for choosing Relais 6 for your stay in Rome.
We are pleased that you found our hotel's convenient location and practice for your tours in ancient Rome. In fact, the Relais 6 is located in a residential area in the Centre of Rome, just 10 minutes by metro from the Colosseum.
Our hotel staff is always very attentive to customer needs; at the reception you can buy tickets for public transport to avoid the customer must buy them at the station.
We are very happy that you have spent a good holiday at Relais 6 and hope to see you again in Rome.
A warm greeting
Beatrice e Salvatore Rizzacasa

This was our last stop in Europe on a 6 week long holiday and we only stayed one night. What a mistake... We should have stayed longer!

For 6 long weeks we didn't have one single hotel that had soft squishy pillows, this hotel did. What a relief it was to lay down and have my head disappear into a cloud-like surface.

The staff at the hotel were amazing. As we only had the afternoon to explore one of the staff showed us the quickest route to see all the main sites.

We had a junior room and it was quite large. The bed was enormous!

There's a lovely courtyard at the back where you can eat breakfast. The breakfast buffet was amazing as well, such a large selection of fruits and pastries!

I will definitely be booking this hotel when we visit Rome again!

This was our first trip to Rome. We based our choice of hotel on the trip advisor reviews and we were not disappointed.This a fabulous hotel in a nice quiet location, but there is a metro station five minutes walk away, so it is easy to get into the centre of Rome.The rooms are big comfortable and nicely decorated. The breakfast was excellent.We cannot praise the staff highly enough, they were very friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble for them. Make sure you get them to recommend some of the great local restaurants.

Such a wonderful hotel and lovely staff! The rooms were brilliant and perfectly equipped. Complimentary drink in the fridge and loads of bits and pieces in the bathroom to keep you going. Excellent location and 5 minutes from a metro station. Apperitivo was wonderful and excellent wine served. Cannot recommend it enough!!!!!!

If you are looking for a clean, beautiful and authentic place in Rome, I recommend Relais 6! The area is not in the center which was a plus for us since we wanted to live as the Romans do. It is easy to get around everywhere. The breakfast is the best we had in Italy. The rooms are huge and comfortable and the staff is very friendly, there are good restaurants around the area too.

We have just returned from staying 4 glorious nights at Relais 6. The rooms were very well decorated, very clean and quiet with very comfortable beds. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was delicious with an excellent choice of foods. The location was a really pleasant residential area. The walk to the metro did not take long and felt very safe at night. Great local restaurants - sensible prices and an excellent gelataria very close. We definitely recommend this hotel and would stay again on our next trip to Rome.

This was our first trip to Rome! From the moment we arrived at the hotel the staff was friendly & helpful! Exceptional customer service! We were extremely happy with the accommodations and location! We love to walk and the hotel is nestled in a quaint little neighborhood just 5 minutes from the metro that can get you anywhere in the city in a few minutes! Definitely a must stay at the Relais 6! The cappuccino at breakfast was a wonderful start to the day! Thank you so very much for the hospitality! Will definitely stay on our next trip to Rome! Aloha from Hawaii!!
