“Great location, helpful staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

Hotel Grifo has a great location - within walking distance of Forum / Colosseum and other major sites.

The front desk staff (Rosa, Alessandro) were very helpful every day with sightseeing tips, showing us on a map how to get there, etc.

Small breakfast area has enough to get you going in the morning - breads, milk, yogurt, juice, cheese, ham, turkey.

Nice terrace on the 4th floor.

The rooms are small and quaint, but good value compared to other hotels we considered.

We really enjoyed our stay during our first trip to Italy. The staff were very helpful and were happy to store our bags when we arrived early in the morning. Although the room was not large it was an adequate size, had good air conditioning and was clean. The shower may cause problems for anyone of bigger than average size but we managed fine. The location was what made this hotel stand out. There were lots of restaurants in the local area and staff were happy to recommend suitable ones. Would definitely stay there again.

We enjoyed very much the friendly and knowlageble staff, all the tips on exploring the city. The breakfast was great and one can also enjoy it by bringing it upstairs and be surronded by the roof gardens and the ambiance of the streets. Great location, 8 minutes to Coleseum and 20 to the Trevi fountain. Close to a lot of amazing little churches and other gems of the city. Close to bus and metro stops.

We had a really pleasant two nights at Hotel Grifo. It was one of the best hotels we stayed in during our two week trip to Italy, and not the most expensive by any means.
The hotel is well positioned to explore the historic "east bank" of the Tiber on foot. We booked a tour with pickup transport for the Vatican, which was worthwhile. The hotel is close to buses and the underground, but we didn't use either.
In particular the staff were very helpful with advice and bookings.
The breakfast was great too!

Stayed for 2 nights Sept 16 &17, 2012.Great location for walking and sightseeing. close to the Colesseum. Rooms were basic but very clean. Hotel staff were very helpful, gave us a great tip on a lookout over the city. Amazing. The rooftop terrace was a great place to enjoy some wine while we relaxed from our day of sightseeing.

I just had the pleasure of spending a total of 5 nights at hotel grifo. I must say that this has been one of the best hotel experiences I have ever had. The staff at grifo exudes class, they are true professionals.

The rooms were always kept clean and the breakfast was more than enough to get your day started. The hotel is a 10 minute walk from the Colosseum and Forum, most importantly it is located a few minutes from Cavour metro station. Once you have metro access you can pretty much get to anywhere in rome. Rosa, Alessandro, and Louigie were always very helpful and attentive to our needs.

I highly recommend hotel grifo and would give it 10 stars if I could. With me and my family, hotel grifo has clients forever.

Great Location close to the train station. Great staff. Clean, quirky, old and charming. Staff recommended area restaurants, bars that were operated by locals. Nearby Piazza was a hit with our group. We stayed here on our last night in Rome before heading back to the US. The staff arranged for a car to the airport for the next morning which arrived on time and was reasonably priced (and very quick).
