“Perfect Honeymoon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights/5 days for our honeymoon. The staff were amazing, we had a large room and breakfast was perfect to set us up for our day. It's well located for taxi's, tourist and local buses and the termini, although we walked everywhere! It took about an hour to walk to the Vatican and 35 minutes to the Colosseum- 20/25 to the Trevi Fountain which we did every evening. We can't wait to return and look forward to doing so.

Had a BA city break and were so pleased to have chosen this hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful, it was in a great location for seeing the sights. We found several good restaurants in walking distance. The room could have been a bit bigger but was very clean and comfortable. We would definitely stay there again.

Very friendly and helpful staff from beginning to the end of our stay. Breakfast was great also. Location perfect for doing Rome by foot. But our room was tiny. Strange smell coming from the bathroom. This was covered up by the cleaners every morning with some kind of cleaner or spray. Very noisy lift going up and down kept us awake. Sorry would not return. Pity as the staff were terrific!

Stayed at Hotel Oxford as part of a BA flight and hotel package deal. The hotel was very nice and surpassed all our expectations.

The service was good, the room was small but well maintained with clean linen, etc. but the A/C never was quite cool enough for my liking (stayed in RM 224).

The hotel staff are the friendliest, particularly the bar and restaurant staff who always make you feel welcome. The hotel is also very well located to access the main attractions in Rome.

The hotel is also very well located to transport and gives easy access to the Termini, we walked from the termini to the hotel on arrival and it was around 0.8 miles so just a 15 minute walk, we did the same on our return journey as well, we were not prepared to pay 24 euro for a taxi to take us 0.8 miles which is what we were quoted on arrival at the termini on day one by the taxi outside the train station.

I will return to this hotel in the next few years to complete more Rome adventures, for now arrivederci

Stayed at Hotel Oxford for a 2nd time in September after first visiting 18 months ago, both via a BA flight and hotel package deal.

The hotel was just as I remembered it and the service was just as good as on my first visit. The room was small but well maintained with clean linen etc. provided each day. Of special note at this hotel is the friendliness of the hotel staff, particularly the bar and restaurant staff who always make you feel welcome. The hotel is also very well located to access the main attractions on Rome.

The hotel is verl well located and gives easy access

Stayed at Hotel Oxford Saturday to Thursday during our 5 day Rome visit. The hotel is a distance away from the airport and takes about 30-45 minutes and costs Euro 48 by taxi. We had one room with 2 adults and 2 children occupying it. It was a bit cramped but the rooms in the hotel are small so there were no options.

The service at the hotel is fantastic. Every member of staff was very courteous and ever willing to help. The staff at the reception are well versed with the area and can guide you as needed. We found quite a few good restaurants and shopping areas near the hotel that were not very expensive.

The hotel has a bar that is open till 11 PM and serves food as well. There is room service available which is helpful when you are tired. The wi-fi signal in our room was a bit on and off but we used the wi-fi in the bar as this was much stronger.

As regards the main attractions/areas the hotel is about 10 minutes walk from Via Veneto, 20-25 minutes walk to Spanish steps or Trevi Fountain (they are in separate directions) and about 20 minutes walk to Villa Borghese Gardens and the Zoo which the kids really enjoyed.

Overall it's a good place to stay, very safe as the US embassy to really close so a lot of police presence. The local buses are also easily accessible from the hotel as they pass right by it. The Taxi stand is about 10 minutes away and it costs Euro 5 to the Spanish steps by taxi. The first stop for the 'Ciao Rome' hop-on hop-off bus is also about a 10-12 minutes straight walk.

We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend this hotel to anyone.

The hotel is located in the quiet part of Rome although close to Termini (15 min walk with kids :)) and several bus stops from Collosseum.
Hotel staff is friendly and helpful.
Rooms are clean but the furniture is a bit outdated.
We felt comfortable overall.
