“Great location, but very small room”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed 5 days ago NEW

Stayed two nights at Mdm Luxury Rooms Guesthouse during our holidays in July 2014. Great central location, short walk to public transport and Vatican City. Room we stayed at was a minimum size, bathroom door when opened was hitting our bed. Very small bathroom. Otherwise clean and we received a good service. Would recommend only for a short stay.

Stayed July 2014, traveled as a couple

Arrived to be greeted buy a very friendly welcome who informed us that on our last night we would be upgraded to the honeymoon suite.
The location is a stones throw from the Vatican and all the main sites within walking distance.
Honeymoon suite was top quality and all of the staff were most helpful.
Breakfast in the room is a lovely touch and sets you up for a great day site seeing.
Best food we found was at DA VITO E DINA turn right from hotel on the left.

Room Tip: Room 23 . Room 25( honeymoon suite).

This was perfect, not far from Vatican City and quick travel to all the attractions in Rome. Very friendly and welcoming staff, who would always go that extra mile. Rooms were spotless and very well decorated. Would highly recommend

I stayed here for 2 nights, loved that didnt have to get up super early to go down for breakfast as it is brought to your room. Room was really clean and modern and both days we had good service..... changed sheets toilet roll changed ect. We had compentary drinks in fridge which i tought was a nice touch staff was really nice and helpful and location was perfect I would stay here again. The only thing i didnt like was the water wasn't the hottest.

My husband and I stayed here in September 2013 with our 2 year old daughter. The rooms are small, but they are clean and modern. They are also air conditioned. The location is fantastic. Saint Peter's and the Vatican are less than ten minutes walk away. There are also plenty of places to eat and shop near the hotel. When we wanted beer, water, fruit, yogurt, and other snacks, we went to a little grocery store across the street from the hotel that was owned by a kind South Asian gentleman.

The small fridge in the room was a welcome feature, as it allowed us to keep our drinks cold during the hot weather. We also liked the breakfast items that were delivered every morning.

The employees were very nice and we enjoyed our stay. One afternoon, I was surprised when we returned to our room and saw that housekeeping had folded our daughter's pajamas and placed them on the pillow. It was thoughtful. We would stay here again.

(I'd like to make a suggestion. The list of helpful phone numbers in the hotel room need to be updated. Also, there should be instructions on how to dial local phone numbers.)

The only thing I can say about this place is that the location can not be bet. It is right beside the Vatican and a metro stop so very convenient. First impressions are good but if you are staying more than a day or 2 be prepared to be disappointed. We stayed for 7 nights. Our sheets were not changed once. No spare toilet paper was provided and the one provided was usually already half used. The cleaning is questionable. Breakfast is not consistent and although we asked for donuts 2 days in a row we were provided with different types and the chocolate croissants are not always chocolate. Basics such as a knife are not necessary provided and the teapots leaked. The table on which to have breakfast in the room is small and not very convenient. Local information is provided in the rooms which is out of date as the local Irish pub no longer exists and when we asked reception she had no idea what we were talking about. we wanted to watch the rugby and so asked was there any pub nearby to which we were told no to only find a pub the next day less than a 5 minute walk away. The lack of knowledge about the locality was quite shocking especially as Rome is a tourist city. The real issue arose on our last night when the hotel took it upon themselves to take the cost of the hotel and the city tax (which is meant to be paid in cash and which it clearly states in the hotel booking) from our bank account without our knowledge, permission or pin number. We had assumed that we would make payment when we checked out as nothing had been said to us during our stay.When I spoke to the manager about this she offered to refund the monies so we could then pay in cash completely oblivious to the actual issue. The fact that they went into our account without our permission is quite alarming and completely unacceptable behaviour. We had asked should we pay on check in at which time the same person told us we could sort it out later and took a copy of our card. What was more shocking about this was the complete lack of understanding or caring about our issue. I was told by the manager it was policy to pay on check in and as we had not done that they had decided to take the funds from our account. I explained that she had told me we did not have to pay at check in however this appeared to fall on deaf ears. I was also told that it states this clearly on my booking which is does not - however it does clearly state that the city tax is to be paid in cash as is policy in Italy!! Needless to say I would not stay here again or recommend it to anyone. The reason for one star is purely due to the location - avoid!!!

Room Tip: Don't go here!! If you must get a room which faces the court yard and not the road.

Dear Lisa,
thank you very much for your review, we are very happy to know that you enjoyed our great location.
We apologize for the inconvenience regarding the payment, it should be paid at check in time as it clearly written in the reservation paper and in the sign in reception, but we resolved this problem before your check out.
In the future we’ll pay more attention to avoid this kind of inconveniences,
We are very surprised to read your comments about our service, we think they are devoid of truth, probably due to your complain regarding the payment.
As you can read in the other reviews the cleanness is one of our strong points and we can serenely confirm that the sheets have been changed several times during your stay. Concerning the breakfast, we served our fresh confectionery, based on your order and our food supply.
We hope that we will be able to welcome you back to MDM LUXURY ROOMS.
Warmest regards

MDM Rooms have nice rooms next to the Ottaviano metro station. Rooms are clean, moderns, ok wifi, huge selection of cabel tv etc. Just few things to note: some rooms are located on the street side and if can get quite noisy for those that are lite sleepers.

Breakfest doesn´t have any variation so if you stay longer than few days, it will get bit boring. There is really good Carrefour supermarket two blocks west (via Sebastiano Veniero) so basicly two blocks down on the same street.

Staff is really helpfull so ask what you need - they will help. Just note that they are not on location 24/7. This is problem ONLY if you haven´t made date for late check in. So if you plan coming late, make a date in advance!

Area has some awsome shops and restaurants - maybe not as much as some other areas but MDM is located rght next to metro station and it´s super easy to get around.

Room Tip: Rooms 24 and 25 are on the noisiest side of building (via Ottaviano). We had 24 and I didn´t mind sl...
