“Very nice hotel!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

We stayed here for 3 nights, the stuff was nice and helpful, willing to answer our questions.
The room was quiet big, for the europe standards.
The breakfast was good, basic but enough for our short stay.
Had a towel warmer in the room, very helpful in these cold days.
The only thing that bothered us is a sound of falling water, happened about twice a day (the few hours that we stayed in the room), perhaps because of the building's heating.
Probably we'll stay here again

Room Tip: Ask for renovated room, not face to the street, in high floor (unless you are claustrophobic, then y...

I spent 3 days in Rome at the end of a glorious 6 week stay in Tuscany and Hotel Sonya was perfect. The location can't be beat (a short 5-10 minute walk from Termini Station) and staff was friendly and accommodating, even being patient as I practiced my Italian language skills. I look forward to returning to Rome soon and will definitely stay at Hotel Sonya again if I can!

We spent 3 days at the Hotel Sonya. The whole staff was generous with their time and great with their helpfulness. I couldn't recommend them any higher. Fabulous stay. Thank you Babul and all the staff.

Although my daughter and I had been to Rome before, we wanted to try to find a hotel with larger rooms than we had in the past. We checked many sites, and found this hotel on Rick Steves site with a great review so we decided to book it. From the first e mail the service was helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. We needed to make changes to our stays since our plans changed and every time we were given quick and friendly responses. From the moment we arrived it was clear we made the right choice. We had asked for a room with a view of the Opera House and we got it. The staff made us feel welcome every minute we were there. The location is excellent, easy walks to all the classic sites like the Fontani di Trevi, Pantheon or the Coliseum or a quick taxi ride to the Vatican and St. Peter's.The free breakfast was delicious and such a great variety; great cappucinos or very rich Italian hot chocolate. We also visited Florence but were coming back to Rome and the Hotel Sonya for another week and on our return we were given the same room and we told the staff it made it feel like we were coming home. We are planning a return visit in the near future and we look forward to staying at this beautiful hotel again soon.

Stayed here for one night on way to Florence. We came to Roma Termini from the airport and stayed back for the night. It was my first experience of a hotel located in old building in Italy , and I was a bit confused. Since this place is very close to the station, we were able to walk to the place (with lugage on wheels). Staff was helpful , the room was small but clean. There was problem with the wash basin , but rest of the stuff was functional. There was a hot water kettle in the room , which we missed in Warsaw. There are large no of food options in the vicinity. The morning breakfast had good variety. Wont mind staying here again.
