My wife and I have just returned back from a 3 night stay at the Best Western Hotel Universo.
We arrived by train from Pisa and the hotel is situated about a 5 min walk from Roma Termini. Although coming out of the station at the other side meant that we had a slight detour until we located it! You want to come out facing the bus station and then turn to the left!! The hotel is a couple of blocks in that direction.
We got a good welcome and had a nice room with balcony on the 4th floor. Staff were very friendly and they provided us with a useful map showing Roma and the hotel location along with the main tourist attractions. Although all maps of rome seem to be tiny and for the first few days we were always getting lost!
The hotel room was nice with a large bathroom and good aircon. The room had wifi, tv and mini bar. We had breakfast at the hotel which had a good choice. There are a couple of bars but plently resturants nearby.
As you are so close to the train and bus network you can jump on the tour bus or take the metro. Please note that even in april these were mega busy with us waiting for 50 mins to get on a tour bus at 9.30am!
I read some of the reviews about the location - Roma is a big city - its a good location and you can walk to the main attractions - to be honest that is the easiest way to get around!! There are lots of people trying to sell you things but that is all over Roma!
The hotels in Roma can be pricey but we got a good nights sleep, the street was pretty quiet and it was a good place to be based for touring. We would stay here again if we come back to Roma but we would definetly have to come back out of season as the tours and queues were unreal! You must prebook to beat the queues!
