We didn't know what we were getting ourselves into but turned out to be best hotel we've had so far in Europe. The ladies working were very generous and helpful. Centrally located, close to Main metro station, train station and bus station, grocery store 30 meters from the hotel, all kinds of restaurants surrounding the place (both cheap and expensive), laundromat 3 blocks away. Little patio beside the office was amazing, we used it as much as we could. Rooms had Italian feeling to them, with plenty of room. Washrooms were kept clean. Had a fantastic stay....

After a mix at another hostel in Rome we ended up at Planet 29 and it turn out to be blessing in disguise. The room was great with no noise at night, Rome has a lot of street noise but with the windows closed it wasn't a problem. The staff spoke many languages and English extremely well and were able to provide up with tips on getting around and locations of things we wanted to see. My only complaint is that we had to go back home. If i'm lucky enough to get back to Rome I'll be staying at Planet 29!!!

we arrived in Rome but our room wasnt ready so we just left our case there, we came back after a really long but absolutely amazing day to find reception is closed up no lights on no one there which we thought was a bit strange, it was 530pm? Got to the room and it was absolutely freezing we put on the one tiny heater which was there to hopefully warm up the room! The room was big and had a small kitchenette type thing with a two ring hob and a sink, there was a cupboard with a plate and a glass but it was locked oddly enough! So we had no idea why it would be there in the 1st place? I went into the bathroom to have a much needed shower, there was no loo roll, the toilet seat had mould under it, the bathroom cupboard wasnt in good shape doors were about to fall off so didnt dare open it to put things on it..the light on the ceiling was basicly wires and the shower is full of mould, i got in and waited for 10 mins for the hot water, but i could have waited forever so cut my loses and got out, the towels were threadbare and the floor was dusty. Needless to say i was fuming we packed our case and we checked out, the lady at reception had her coat on so we cant have been the only ones suffering from the lack of heating!! I informed her that we were checking out because the room was so foul, yes its only 45 euros but who wants to pay to sleep in filth!!

We left and walked about 100 yards to find Hotel Windrose which i would really reccomend, they are really helpful, loads of advice on hand breakfast included and nice comfy clean rooms.

We had an amazing time in Rome i loved it we were there for my Boyfriends 30th which is on Valentines and we couldnt of had a better time!! AMAZING.

I went to Rome this summer with my friend. When we got to the hotel we needed to take a nap because we were so jet lagged. We got up and found a bug on the bed. At that point we didn't think anything of it, but later at around 23:00, we woke up to find bed bugs!!! We couldn't leave the hotel because there is no desk attendant at night. We barely slept at all that night. The next morning we checked out. If you stay here check underneath the bed, sheets and in the pillowcases before you decide to stay. It was disgusting.

we had a gr8 weekend in rome, the hotel really was'nt anything to rave about, but it was clean and friendly. the location is fab, literally round the corner to the termini, which takes you everywhere. however if you dont mind walking, a good 20 minute walk will take you to most famous sites, colloseum, trevi fountain etc. we mostly walked, so much to see on the way. i asked for a room on the first floor, you should do the same as going up all those flights with luggage might be back breaking for some. we had a small room with a small balcony overlooking roof tops and fans, not attractive, but we were not there to spend time in the hotel! bed was firm and comfy, pillows were not good. the ensuite was ok, clean, good hot water, tiny shower cubicle and im small 5ft 1.
the staff make your bed evryday, but thats as far as it goes, towels are thread bare, bring your own maybe. the staff were very good and leave you to your own devices,
this is the cheapest hotel we have ever stayed in, and i was almost dreading it, but i can honestly say our stay was perfect, we only slept there afterall.
we brought croissants in our suitcase with us, we ate these in the morning and stopped for coffee at cafes for breakfast, saves a fortune . we spent more money on lunch and dinner.
highly recommend dinner at the pantheon, we were entertained by a tenor, really brought in the crowds, magical .

Had read good reviews, albeit mostly a year or two before our stay. Only two were very negative.

Fortunately we only stayed two nights and were out most of the time. As we kept telling each other,'It is ed to sleep in'.

The bathroom looked newly refurbished and clean, the wooden floor was filthy and we couldn't walk bare footed on it without moving dirt into the bed when we retired.

Hardly saw anything of hotel staff who were behind locked doors on the first floor, our room was on the second floor.

The advertisment seen on the internet stated three times that there were ceiling fans but our only option was to pay about £18 for airconditioning.

Fortunately, we had a travel kettle and European adaptor with us, so we were able to have hot drinks in the morning and evening - esential, as coffee and tea are very expensive in Rome except in fast food burger bars.

Our first night we dined at the Restaurant across the road, both the food and service were aweful and the waitress extreemly rude.

The next night we had a really good and much cheaper meal at di Famiglia Allam, just around the corner on the left -Via Volturno, 44 . The staff were friendly and very friendly.

Overall, our experience of Rome was good as the hotel is near Termini convenient for the metro trains and buses and most tourist sites are within easy walking distance - as long as one is good at mapreading.

Wherever you stay, have a super time in a historians paradise.
