“Great!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

Osimar hotel ensured us very pleasant one-week stay in Roma! The location of the hotel is really perfect! Everything you need is so near. Metro, shops, restaurants, swimming pool... Then, the hotel personnel was very accommodating and helpful. Breakfast was good too, but maybe we just missed some fruit... I liked rooms, they were clean, but there was kinda bad view from window... But we enjoyed our visit to Roma, staying in this hotel, and we all thank you, Osimar:)

The staff is very polite, nice and helpful! The rooms are average, but absolutely comfortable to stay in.
They could do some more cleaning around the hotel, and in the rooms. And sadly, the breakfast is very simple.

Short way to the Metro, so you are in the city in just few minutes ;)

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

My friend and I stayed in a room with twin beds at the start of Oct 2013 for our 4 night holiday in Rome. I chose the hotel, which is always a worry in case you choose somewhere terrible but this one didn't embarrass me and was actually great value. That said, I wouldn't go straight back when next in Rome but I wouldn't refuse to go there either as it was a good deal for the price.

Pros:
* Good central location for the sights - 15-20 mins walk from Bologna Metro or Bus Stops (and excellent ice- cream shop on the way makes this journey feel short ;) )
* Fairly quiet (with windows shut and aircon off)
* staff are friendly and helpful but not creepy/too friendly
* decent breakfast (pastries, yogurts, juice, ham, cheese, toast, jam)
* close to shops/restaurants the locals use but still a quite neighbourhood area
* 25 mins from Ciampino airport by taxi
* they will accommodate your needs like early breakfast/phone to book restaurant etc.


Cons:
* apart from breakfast and a vending machine, no food available
* despite leaving the card saying "please clean my room" on the door knob every day we only had our room cleaned/replenished on one out of four occasions.
* if you sleep with the window open it can be noisy with local kids playing and scooters raring up and down the road
* if you sleep with aircon on it is very noisy and rattles
* can be hard to find the first time as it is slightly hidden. Our local taxi driver got lost.
* even though we slept with the window closed, we were covered (covered!) in itchy bites within a day or two - maybe bedbugs? Though we didn't see any so that's not confirmed
* toilet would only flush twice in a row and then give up the ghost for half hour and wouldn't flush again until it recovered


Overall though for 4 nights this hotel was quite fine, I gave it a 3 out of 5 overall mark but I suppose when you consider how much cheaper it is than a lot of similar hotels maybe I was a bit tight with that and it could have had a 4/5.

Tips:
If you do stay here ask for toilet roll every day as you pass reception at the end of the day in case your room is not cleaned (as their rolls are not very big so use up quickly!)
You can buy bus tickets from the hotel and get the bus either nearby or from bologna (depending which bus), you're supposed to stamp the bus ticket on the bus but we saw that the locals never do this and so we stopped doing it too and never got stopped. This meant we could travel everywhere for 4 days for free with just one un-validated ticket (you do have to use it if going on the metro though to get through the barrier). Once we realised this however we made all our trips by bus since it was a nicer way to see the sights anyway than going underground.
When walking back to the hotel from Bologna there are two gelato places to choose from where you can get 3 scoops for 2 euro.. a nice way to pass the walk!
Make sure not to miss out on the brilliant restaurant that is 5 mins walk from the hotel "Rosso Tiziano". Amazing and cheap food on your doorstop that was the highlight of our meals in Rome.

Small room. Felt like faulty towers , toilet seat loose, toilet roll holder loose, hairdryer not practical, shower base needed replacing, shower doors needed replacing. Bedrooms needs updating snd redecorating. Staff helpful but didn't agree with 2 euro charge extra per person per night when checking out and paying through travel company already. Breakfast very poor and most days waitress miserable only on last day did we get a very efficient young lady in dining room. 15 min walk to underground Bologna station easy enough but too far out if going back for shower and change as we did then out again in the evening.
hotel needs total refurbishment and decent breakfast not sure what some people are used to with sll the good reviews but not to our standard

We were most comfortable staying in this Hotel. Room size was big with additional bed for the Kid. Most important the quality of cleanliness and hygiene was good in the hotel. The neighborhood is quite good. Nice Chinese restaurant very near to the Hotel. All facilities were extremely good. We got an excellent airport drop facility at an odd hour of 3:30 am. The reception was conscious of our flights and they reminded us and also arranged for the drop. The food quality was good. Special thanks to Mr. Lucky Jagota for being an excellent Host to make our trip most memorable...

We chose this hotel because it was just outside the centre of Rome. Driving here was easy and they had free parking. There's a bus stop a minute away that takes you within walking distance to the sites , bus ride was about 20 minutes.. Only bad thing about the bus was it didn't come often ,, every 30 minutes or so. There's also a train station about 15 minutes walking . Very simple to use and recommend the train over bus. The staff was excellent. Really nice, knowledgable and helpful. The rooms were ok, nothing special but everything you need. Free wifi. ., great restaurant at the top of the street called Momart.. Overall the price warrants the hotel/location. If we drive to Rome again,, I would stay here again..
