“Conveniently affordable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014

This hotel is conveniently situated close to the metro, the Colosseum, San Giovanni in Laterano and several good (local, not touristy) restaurants serving the most divine ox-tail! Although the rooms are tiny, they are comfortable and clean. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. Ask them about restaurants, public transport.....anything. They are all knowledgable and give good advice. The breakfast is excellent. This hotel is good vaue for money. We would go back on our next visit to Rome.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back, looking out on the school quad (baskerball courts). The front rooms can...

Booked this hotel then subsequently checked out some reviews. So was a bit concerned that the experience would not be great. On the contrary, we had a fabulous stay. Our room was ready when we arrived. The wonderful receptionist Roberta was so welcoming and helpful. We were given a lovely, spacious room on the top floor for the four of us, with two separate rooms, a roof terrace and hot tub - though didn't venture to try it out! The breakfast was super. Loads to choose from. We had a late flight on our last day and there was no problem with leaving our bags.

Not the most swanky of locations but so close to Colosseum - a short stroll and literally right beside Manzoni metro stop so everything is easily accessible. Word of warning, don't walk through the park to get to the colosseum. Very dodgy guys scoping you out!!

This hotel is a real godsend, in quiet street just a few steps from the metro station. The staff was polite and helpful. Rooms are not small at all. Good value for money. Moreover there is a tram #3 near the hotel wich will take you to the city centre or to the gastronomic heven - Trastevere district.

Room Tip: our room faced school yard, though it wasn`t noisily at all

We stayed at the Eurostars Saint John hotel over the New Year period. We paid a premium price for what we thought would be a premium hotel. Unfortunately it is not, more of a 3* hotel.

PROS
Clean and tidy.
Room Decor is modern and fresh.
Comfortable bed.
Close walking distance to metro, the Coliseum and restaurants.
Very helpful Reception staff.
Safe area.


CONS
Room is tiny, just enough space to walk around the bed to get into the bath room.
Can hear neighbouring guests through the wall.
Services not as advertised (no satellite TV, no bathtub)
Air Con/heating is controlled centrally by Reception. Our room was very very warm. Informed that nothing could be done to address, as all the rooms were set to ''heating during the winter months", I.e. No individual climate control. This was far from ideal, due to the warm weather experienced. We left the window open all the time, favouring the breeze and noisy road to a warm room.

I would recommend this hotel, if you can get a cheap deal and are happy with 3* quality.

We booked a quadruple room and stayed over the Christmas holiday for 4 nights. Room was small, not as per described in their homepage "The best solution for 4 people. Room comfortable and quiet ..... ideal for families with children. Large spacious, bright, elegant room,...". 2 extra beds were set up and 1 of them actually blocked the wardrobe, leaving only a half opened door. Would be great if they could provide coat hangers on walls cause no space at all in wardrobe. No hangers in toilet too for towels and clothing. Lights in the room are insufficient, especially at the entrance and dresser. Power point for fridge and need to share with kettle too.
The housekeeping service was poor. On our 2nd day, we told the chambermaid to provide extra bath/shower gel cause that tiny bottles are for both hair & body. Not only no extras were given, they did not replenish what were used too. Toiletries, tea bags are not being refilled and cups are not washed. Worst of all, on the 3rd day, we found our soil towels which we left in the sink were hanging in our shower cubicle.
Strongly agreed with itisjaye regarding " the breakfast rooms is run by a young gestapo agent who would not allow us to sit with our family and instructed us to "sit there". The first thing he greets us is "room number" instead of "buongiorno". He even ignore us when we ask him to clear our plates.
The only person who makes our stay pleasant is Ms Mirta, who works at the front desk. She was the only true professional whom contributed to the 4 stars of the hotel.
The location was okay. Although not far from train station but the walk from train station to hotel was rather quiet at night. No shops around hence very dark and quiet, with occasional "strangers" staring and drunk singing.

Room Tip: Will not recommend to travelers without male companion and family with older kids

The hotel is located very close to Coloseum at quiet street and close to metro station, that makes this well designed hotel perfect for those who wants to get by walk to the most popular destinations. The Trevi fountain, Parthenon and the most popular ,touristic restaurants are only 30-40 minutes away from Prime hotel Saint John. If you like to take a dinner at not so popular places, where the tourist don't make a lot of noisy, you could enjoy of some of the small and cozy italian restaurants, located around the main street ,close to the hotel
If you would like to make a romantic trip whit your beloved, Prime hotel Saint John is perfect place, too. The interior is boutique designed, whit spacious doublebed and elegant bathroom. Only the space ot the rooms is a little bit small, but what you need when you are a couple instead of big bad.
The breakfast is great, and is suitable as well for meat lovers and for vegetarians.
I really liked this hote, because of the perfect location, designed interior and reasonable prices.
Thank you, Prime hotel Saint John!
I'll be back!:)

The room was small but comfortable but the bath tub was great! After walking all over Rome, it was nice to come back to a jacuzzi tub! Breakfast was really good and the staff was nice. Overall, it was a nice place.
