“Hotel Oceania - an oasis of quiet in Rome”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2014

Helpful and friendly staff, a great location, very clean rooms and moderate prices - a winning combination. Also, a very nice breakfast to begin your day of sightseeing in Rome. Speaking of the location, Hotel Oceania is located in a neighborhood of government offices, shops and residential buildings - at night it's VERY quiet and there are on street parking spaces, which is unheard of in most of Rome. This Rick Steves recommendation was a real winner.

Easy walk from Termini. Great value for the price. Our room was immaculately clean. Breakfast was basic Italian style breakfast (a few pastries etc.) but if you're doing it right you had a huge dinner the night before and all you need is some great coffee anyway.

We spent two nights at Hotel Oceania and felt well taken care of. The positive experience starts with the staff including Cara, Radu, Roberto and owner Stephan. They were most accommodating with any requests we had. Our room was immaculate and beautifully decorated with a nice sized bathroom. The hotel is located on the 3rd floor but has a small lift. Breakfast was very good and if you are there during warm weather, you can dine on the balcony overlooking an atrium. The hotel location to convenient to the Colosseum, Trevi Fountain, and Spanish steps and we felt very comfortable walking at night. Wi-Fi was spotty. I highly recommend Hotel Oceania for your next trip to Rome.

We stayed at Hotel Oceania after reading Reviews on Tripadvisor. We were very happy. It was very close to Spanish steps, Trevi fountain and Pantheon, and 10 mins walk to Rome Termini. About 15 mins walk to the Colosseum. Good clothes and shoe shopping in the next street. Breakfast was good. Staff were excellent. There is a small lift or you can use the stairs. The hotel is on the 3rd floor. We would choose this hotel again if we came to Rome.

We just completed our stay at Hotel Oceania and highly recommend it! We rented two rooms, one a quad room for 2 adults, a teenager and a child and one a double for 2 adults and both were very nice and roomy. The large bathrooms and showers were welcome after two weeks of small European bathrooms and showers leading up to our stay. The staff are extremely helpful, friendly and service oriented.

The hotel's location is close to major bus and metro lines and allows for easy access to the rest of the city. It is not super convenient to dining options as it is located in a governmental zone, but nice restaurants are located within a 4 to 5 block walking distance. The area seems very safe.

A couple of areas where the hotel has improvement opportunities:
1. The water temperature in the shower fluctuates widely whenever a toilet is flushed or other water is used. On several occasions, our shower water temp went from lukewarm to very hot (scalding?) and then to cold in just a few seconds. This was a bit annoying and could be resolved with some plumbing changes.

2. The internet wifi is free to all guests. This is a great service! However, the type of internet service that the hotel uses is severely limited in terms of bandwidth. The only time that we ever were able to get a satisfactorily fast connection (3G level of data access) was early in the morning when other users were asleep. Once the hotel guests were up, the wifi speed dropped to an almost unusable level. This could be resolved quite easily with an upgrade to the service used by the hotel.

Other than these 2 items, the Hotel Oceania is a great hotel choice for all types of travelers.

Room Tip: The courtyard facing rooms are quiet while the street facing rooms could get noisy. We had no probl...

This hotel is located within 10 minutes walking from the Rome Termini train station as well as 5 minutes from Via Nazionale and the metro stop. The staff couldn't be nicer, the breakfast is delicious and the rooms are comfortable, clean and quiet. I would recommend this hotel to couples as well as single women traveling alone.
