When we arrived there was no one to receive us. Even we respected the time they say the reception works. We have to wait 39 minutes outside the building in the sun waiting...another person that lives in the building opened the door for us... We have to pay 15 euros to enable

Response from TheSaintRoma, Proprietario at St. John's Terrace
Responded Jul 11, 2018
Good morning, this review is absolutely not true to what happened. On our booking page is clearly written: "Please inform St. John's Terrace when you arrive at the hotel, you can use the Special Requests box when booking, or contact the property directly using the contact details provided in your confirmation. " In the confirmation emails from us that you have received after your booking, it says: "please DO NOT MISS, as soon as you are able to do it, to let me know what time you think to check in (or at least the flight number) in order to welcome you personally at St. John's Terrace. Since this is not a Hotel but a Guest House, we can not provide 24h reception. " Despite this, I did not have any precise answer. The day before your arrival I sent a whatsapp message to finally know the arrival time and you replied that you did not have yet the train ticket from Florence. So I asked you to send me a message as soon as you know your arrival time to Termini station to arrange check-in and you answered ok. Except then send me a picture via whatsapp the day after directly in front of our door. So I do not consider it our fault if you had to wait for our arrival. The district is a Roman historical place. Near the historical center but far from the big tourist crowd. It is a very quiet neighborhood much appreciated by our guests. If you wanted to be in the crowd of tourists you could book a hotel near the Spanish Steps or St. Peter. You were our guest 3 days and never told us anything about stains on your sheets. Our Guest House is a non-smoking facility. It is possible to smoke only outside on our terrace that is not close to what was your room. And, to conclude, on the last day you left without paying the tourist tax and therefore I was forced to charge this cost on your credit card. For all these reasons I hope it was the last time we had you as guests Regards Emiliano S. (manager)

The room was smaller than in photo; the hygiene was not good. The shower’ quality in plastic. And more of all someone stole me 200€ ! Never again. No sound insulation. ugly neighborhood. Nobody at maintenance if we need anything.

Very nice. Only wish I knew that it was on the 7th floor and in an apartment building. All services were in walking distance and staff was wonderful. The breakfast was more than enough and we were able to make coffee each afternoon when we got back in the breakfast room.

First time to Rome and will definitely be coming back to St. John’s Terrance, lovely staff, amazingly furnished to a high standard. Area is slightly rough but great for food as you go where the locals go and the food is amazing 😋 would definitely recommend!

Hello Carol, we are just 20 min walk from Coliseum 5 minutes from San Giovanni Basilica (you can see it from the suite windows) and 3 min walk from main metro station. If you are looking for a very central hotel just in front of Spanish Steps this is NOT for you. If you are looking for a guesthouse in a quiet residential area but very easly to get to the chaotic center. St John's Terrace is for you. When you arrive here it will be my pleasure to give you as many info you need for the best visit in Rome. (And please check our ranking review on booking com we have 9.5 from more than 200 guests really been by us). Please in case of reservation go to our website to save 5% on the room price. stjterrace com All the best Giorgio
