Very good people with great manners. Simple B&B close to Termini station for an easy stay in Rome. Many restaurants around and 10 minutes from Colloseum. Price was OK and rooms were clean, that's what I needed in that visit. If the place was recently renovated I would have rated 5/5 but it is good for what you pay.

Both the installations and our room were very comfortable. The highlight of this stay was the amazing staff who were always available to help us with whatever we needed, especially this one fellow named John (or Gian?). The location was also pretty good.

Every one knows that finding a good hotel with reasonable price is not an easy job in Rome central, especially during high season. I have just stayed one night in a single room during July and based on my observations, the price (90 euro for 1 night, including the breakfast and city taxes) totally worth it. The room was small very clean with a bathroom even better than the room. The receptions are polite, friendly and speak English fluently. The breakfast was really great. You may have every thing that normally are only found in 5 star hotels, including omelette and hot potato ... . I can not say it was the best I have ever experienced, but the total summation on cleanness, price, quality, location and quietness get a good mark!. If you have no experience in choosing hotels near Rome central, this could be an option for you. The other options of this hotel are available by its website, so I just emphasize on my own observations. Have a nice stay in Rome!

This B&B is a no frills, good proximity to the train, "if you get a good deal and don't need extras go for it" sort of location. We left early so we did not experience breakfast, but check in and out was a good experience. There are better locations for similar prices nearby. I would even advise to go a bit farther away from the train station unless you have heavy luggage. For us, we had a train in one day and a train out the next day before a cruise so the location was perfect. Don't plug in your own hair dryer - very old building so it won't be able to handle it as we learned from experience! Also found two small bugs in the shower which isn't the end of the world but was not the greatest experience either. Overall, it got the job done but could use improvements.

After long walking from the station, you will find this hotel. the road is really messy, so its very difficult to walk with heavy suitcase. Once you enter the hotel, you will immediately see stairs and reception desk. You can obviously see the receptionist, however he never help you if you suffered heavy suitcases. Especially I was traveling with my mom, but still the receptionist male, never help you. He gave a very easy explanation, and gave us a very old, very dark room. when we open the fridge, it was packed with ice which you can see the room is not used often. I asked to the receptionist to change the room. Fortunately, receptionist was kind lady , and we could change the room. She was the only good point of the hotel. We didn't book this hotel by ourselves, from travel agency. But the hotel star was 4stars, the picture looks very nice from booking website. so we didn't worry about the hotel. It was the last city to stay in Rome for our trip, so I feel very disappointed, and not recommended.

We picked Hotel Rex due to its close proximity to the train station, the Vatican City, the Colosseum. It was perfect for the price and location. The staff were super friendly. The room was clean. It could be a little noisy if you had the window open so at night earplugs were essential (even with closed windows). The breakfast was a little 'samey' and not brilliant for vegetarians but it was perfectly adequate. Would recommend this hotel.

This hotel is in a GREAT LOCATION. The hotel is small. It is a few buildings that were all connected together to make this a hotel. The room was pretty big for Rome and we had a private bathroom which was important to us. No view from the room but we only used it to sleep and shower so that does not matter to me. The staff was very very nice. The front desk person went out of their way to get us Opera info during our stay and made some really good restaurant recommendations. They always had a smile for us. The shower did back up on day one, but they sent plumber immediately and we never had a problem afterwards. The roof top breakfast was a real treat. Fresh baked bread and home made jam. Eggs, Sausage and more every day. A real time saver and money saver. I would go back again with no problem.

When you have an amazing experience at a hotel in Rome and 6 years later you are returning to Rome on your honeymoon, it is a no brainer to stay there again. Enter Hotel Rex. I emailed them requesting the room I had with my son in 2013 for nostalgic purposes, it was a great room too. This was all set up by email, even paying for the room. Breakfast included. I also requested a bottle of Prosecco and fruit to be in our room upon arrival. They did this for free for us, what a wonderful surprise, completely not expected. Upon arrival, we were greeted with warm smiles and given our key to the room. Prosecco and fruit were there as promised, it was so good to be back! While unpacking it was very warm in the room so we tried to open the window. (I have severe asthma and need fresh air) It wouldn’t open, there was a piece missing that allows you to open it. My husband went downstairs to inquire about it and he was told the people that were in there last broke it. The man said he would bring it to the attention of the day time desk attendant. The next morning she approached us about the window (I feel terrible I forgot her name). She told us if we could wait one more night she can move us to a different room. We agreed. Well what an upgrade!!!! Completly FLOORED at the room they gave us. The Suite Terrace- Two floor room with a private terrace a wine fridge and a grill. Tons of closet space and drawers. It was absolutely fabulous and private. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you Hotel Rex and all of the staff for giving us a home away from home. We are so grateful. We will always come back to our home Hotel Rex in the future.

We booked this hotel as part of a package, and mainly by its situation about 400 m from the Roma Termini. It is a old converted house, and the more interesting because of this. We had a very large room with an outer lobby and a bathroom with two washbasins (always a bonus when travelling as a couple!). It was immaculately clean, the water pressure was good and there was plenty of hot water. The bathroom was let down by peeling paint at the bottom of the shower, poorly repaired enamel in the bath, and a cracked floor. The lighting was very good in the bathroom, but it was very dark in the bedroom - what lighting there was was very dim. The breakfast was OK - I had expected more fruit and cereal, and the layout was quite confusing; the crockery was, illogically, in piles in different areas of the room, and the butter was hidden away by the teabags, but we soon learnt our way around. The staff there were friendly and helpful, and willingly stored our cases at no cost for 6 hours on our last day. It isn't 4-star, but its individuality was refreshing compared to the anonymous chain hotels.
