“Pleasant stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012 via mobile

My wife and I have just returned from a 3 day break in Rome and stayed at the Hotel Viminale. It's location is great as it is within a short walk to all the main tourist attractions but is lovely and quiet at night.

The hotel is very reasonably priced and is very comfortable. Our room was clean and tidy (the decor slightly dated) but ideal as a base for our stay.

The staff at reception are really nice and give a warm welcome everytime you arrive back at the hotel.

The free wifi is also excellent.

Overall, a pleasant base to see Rome

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

We stayed 3 nights in June 2012. Hotel Viminale is located very conveniently near to the Termini and nice and close to all the wonderful interesting places to visit in Rome. The outside breakfast terrace is delightful, and very enjoyable in the balmy Rome weather. There are many great cafes and restaurants nearby to the hotel within easy walking distance. Staff were polite and courteous and the room was comfortable and very clean. Perhaps in need of a bit of an upgrade, but all the same very comfortable. Would happily stay here again, and recommend for a good value place to stay in the wonderful city of Roma.

The hotel is located near the Colosseum (15 minutes walk) in a quiet street. If you arrive by car you might find it difficult to park as the hotel has no parking facilities and the garages near-by are very expensive (25 EUR per day). The bus station and subway station (Cavour) are within walking distance and are the best option if you arrive on foot.
The hotel building is quite old and hallways are narrow so it might feel a bit claustrophobic at times. The rooms are relatively small but clean and the bathroom was quite spacious. Our room was located on the ground level and we’ve had a small terrace which was quite ice in the evenings. Rooms are equipped with air-conditioning, which was quite loud and a bit inconvenient but it would have been difficult to be without it. There is also a refrigerator and the staff doesn’t really mind if you use it for your own food and drinks.
The breakfast was served in the ground level and it was quite a good choice of food and it is possible to have breakfast outside (which is really nice). The fitness centre was locked at the time the doors to it didn’t give the impression of something good is hidden behind it (in my opinion the fitness doesn’t really work but probably you won’t need it anyway).
All in all the hotel has good location, solid prices and offers good service if you are not too demanding.

Room Tip: Few rooms on the ground level have small terraces which are quite nice if you're a smoker or jus...

Situated in a quiet street just over 5 minutes walk from Roma Termini and within 15 minutes walk from the Colosseum and Trevi Fountain in the opposite direction, making it an ideal base for sightseeing. The hotel and room was very clean and elegant with polite and helpful staff

The room in which I stayed was small but beautiful, decorated in a traditional style that fit the area. It felt very Italian.

The man who helped me to check in was very friendly and helpful. The man behind the desk the second day was less pleasant but no one was unfriendly. When I went downstairs for breakfast the maids and waitresses all greeted me with a cheerful "buon giorno".

The best part for me was the location. Restaurants, shops, and some attractions were all within walking distance, even for an out-of-shape 50-year-old.
