“nice indeed”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

at the top of an old roman palace and through a smallish elevator a cozy place run by two lovely roman ladies and their 4 lovely dogs ! small utmostly clean fully equipped , elegantly furnished rooms ! do not expect a flashy american styled place ! this hotel is typically italian , full of locals !the location is great right between the spanish steps and fontana di trevi ! breakfast is ok ! enjoy this hotel just like i do each time i fly to wonderful rome for bizz and pleasure !

5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

My partner and I stayed here several months ago and were very happy with our stay. The hotel really is excellently located with many attractions in close proximity, as well as a gelato parlour across the street with some of the best gelato i've ever tasted!
We would leave early in the morning and return at night so never did much else other than sleep and eat breakfast. If you are looking for a holiday where you spend most of your time around the hotel using its facilities then this may not be the place for you, as I don't believe the hotel offers a great deal of these. However with the whole of Rome to explore I can't understand why you'd want to spend all your time cooked up indoors. If you are the latter (like my partner and I were) then the City Hotel has everything you need.
The staff are polite and accomodating whilst the rooms are simple yet idilic and very clean. Breakfast consists mainly of sweet cakes, pastries, cereal and pate. You are welcome to eat as much as you like and I particularly enjoyed the contrast between the sweet pastry and rich pate.
Much has been said about the noise although I certainly didn't find it a problem and we were looking over the main street, which although busy is usually only single file traffic.
The City Hotel offers all the essentials at a high standard with a reasonable price - leaving you free to enjoy the really important part of your trip... Rome

The hotel is very conveniently located, we walked everywhere for our entire stay. It's clean but the decor is a bit dated. Our room was large, and double glazed, which was good as it faced onto the main road. There were no tea/coffee facilities in the room, no fridge, and the wifi was very expensive. Staff were polite but not particularly helpful whe. We were trying to find out about visiting the Vatican - this may have been due to our lack of Italian...
Breakfast choices were limited but ok. There are plenty of restaurants nearby.

We spent a week in the City Hotel,friendly staff , clean and spacious room. The breakfast was ok,fresh coffee of your choice served at your table by a lovely lady. The location of this hotel is great, 5 minutes walk to the Spanish Steps and Trevi fountain. We would not hesitate we stay here again.Michael and Rachel Bloor

Fantastic location..very close to Spanish Steps and Trevi Fountain. Really recommendth Hop on Hop off bus tour for the day. Do the main bits during the day ,then go back to Piazza Barberini for the last trip of the day..doing this you can squeeze in Rome by night as well..full trip takes 2hours.Definately eat out over in the 'Trastevere' area..local restaurants at great prices too! The hotel is spotless.We had room 204, which did look over the main road , but the windows are double glazed and did not hear a thing. Bathroom great too. Breakfast is simple but adequate .All the staff were very friendly .Had a great holiday and will sure stay here again...and recommend to my customers(I am a travel agent after all!!)...Book it and enjoy!!

perfect location, 3mins stroll to spanish steps, 5min to trevi fountain, 30min to colleseum, 40 min to vatican.
we booked through late rooms as part of our honeymoon, we were allocated a room on the 3rd floor, rooms was good, nice bathroom, large double mirrored wardrobe, clean, better than expected to be honest.
hotel is located upstairs but there is a lift...perfectly fine lift dispite other reviews..yes its old fashioned but you are in Rome..No modern constructions! Once you get into hotel its nice and comfortable!
Staff were lovely but do try and speak to them as they can be unsure of their english but they love to try and you will get some great recommendations.
Breakfast is for the sweet toothed, pastries, jams etc
we didnt use the internet so I cannot comment but I would stay here again without hesitation.

I had to change rooms to get any wifi at all and it costs 5 Euros per hour!

Great location though...

Breakfast was terrible, with packaged cakes, and a 15 minute wait for coffee.

Best for a quick stay in the centre but not if you need to do business
