“Fantastic, Modern, Clean, Brilliantly located Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2009

As this was our first trip to Rome its difficult to compare this hotel with others in the area, although I have found out from friends that you could pay the same amount as SuiteDreams or even more and get a really disappointing hotel.

We travelled to Rome for a friends wedding with one day spare to go sightseeing, other friends stayed in the Trastevere area and complained that it was much more of a walk to get to the sights than we had at SD.

The location of the hotel is fab, almost all the sights are walking distance (definitely take your flat shoes if you go to Rome) we spent an entire day from 8am to 10pm walking around taking in the sights whilst we were there and the location of the hotel meant that we were never too far away, the only limitation we had was time!

The hotel was very easy to find, our taxi driver dropped us off right outside after coming from Ciamparo airport, but please be warned that the fare really shouldn't be much more than 30 euros, there is (in theory) a flat rate to and from Rome city centre of 30 euros but we got stung by a con-artist taxi driver who told us that 'due to protests in the city centre he couldn't honour that amount'.........we ended up having THE most dangerous taxi journey there AND THEN he charged us 50 euros for the pleasure. I know the hotel can arrange taxi pickups so i really would advise this so as to not get caught out like we did.

Hotel is very small and on the first floor but there is a lift although I much prefer to take the stairs (cases and all) and we arrived at least 3 hours early and our room was ready for us already which was brilliant. Everything about the hotel is very modern, clean cut, fresh and minimalistic. I would suggest that if you are looking for a slice of old world Rome this is not the hotel for you, although you will find more than enough history right on your doorstep. The bottle of water for each guest in the room each day is brilliant to take out when you go sightseeing as Rome can get mighty hot (even in mid october) and the air con was used every day when we got back.

Bed is very comfy and we slept incredibly well, the black out blind is also a good noise reducer, as being relatively central i'm sure we should have heard more noise from outside than we actually did. Bathroom is great size and the slate shower and enclosure is fantastic.

Breakfast selection (which we only got one day to try out) was really good, its a great selection of 'Continental' items, pastries, cakes, cereals, fruit and the tassimo machine is great fun if you can work out how to use it!! Being such a small hotel this breakfast set up is perfect, I guess if you want a bigger cooked breakfast you'd be able to walk less than 5 minutes and find somewhere but we filled up nicely on the lovely fruits and breads etc and were set for the day.

The staff at the hotel were great, were really great helping us arrange transport to the wedding we were attending and sorted out items such as ironing boards, irons, hairdryers, DVD's without hesitation, the maps on the front desk are invaluable to carry around and the hotel staff will point out all the attractions and ways to get around. They also have a handy guide to the restaurants they recommend, we went to the one opposite the opera house which was very nice (but please do remember to order sides with any main courses, i ended up with a dinner of two very lonely lamb cutlets on a plate!!) and the location was less than 5 mins away, also walked past the restaurant (target?) below the hotel which looked really great too, just didn't get a chance to eat there.

Overall I'd definitely recommend this hotel and would definitely stay there again, without us even realising it the place made our brief city break a whole lot more enjoyable. Upon speaking to our friends at the wedding we all attending over in Rome, who had all stayed in Trastevere, we were astonished to find how much our opinions of Rome, Roman Italians and the area varied. Where as our friends were disgusted at the amount of litter, graffiti and dog mess in 'Rome', we had completely the opposite opinion and were saying how clean and litter/graffiti free the city was in comparison to London. Without having heard other people's opinions I guess we wouldn't have realised how lucky we were to stay in such a nice area, nice location and such a well kept part of the city. Before my trip I was slightly concerned about the cost of staying at SuiteDreams but I can assure you it is worth every penny.

My only other recommendation is whilst you're in Rome do visit Piazza Navona, its only through a recommendation that we visited there and it really was beautiful, took our breath away and had a fantastic meal on the edge of the square as artists bustled around and music played in the background...........my absolute favourite memory of Rome :)

I hope you enjoy Rome as much as we did.

This hotel was a wonderful place to stay. After taking the train from Naples we walked to the hotel from the Rome station. It only took about ten minutes. We found the hotel no problem.
The service was wonderful. The staff could not have been more accommodating. They gave us fabulous suggestions for restaurants and we even went back to some of them twice they were so tasty. Being the middle of a long trip there were a couple of afternoons after walking Rome that we came back to our room and used their complimentary DVD player and DVD's. We relaxed and watched some English movies. Breakfast was the typical continental breakfast in Italy. The staff was willling to help with anything and everthing. They helped us book our tour of the vatican. Free internet service was definitely a bonus seeing as we hadn't book the next 7 days of our trip.

We stayed for 5 night and loved the cleanliness, location and how helpful the staff were. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

I absolutely loved this hotel and especially the staff. They were all so kind and helpful. Being a solo traveler they really made my stay in Rome so smooth as they took care of arranging everything for me, tours, taxis. They gave me a map upon my arrival and went over all of the main attractions and the best way to get there with me. I can't say enough about how helpful and gracious they were.

The room was a great size room, very clean. They have free wireless internet and even provide a computer for guests use if you don't have one.

The location was in walking distance to most attractions or if you're not up for walking too far they're close to the main bus routes.

I loved this hotel.

We arrived at SuiteDreams after a very stressful travel day (flat tire on autostrata...need to change rental cars....arriving much later due to car issues). We were warmly greeted by the staff, and shown to our room. When we unpacked, we visited the front desk and asked for recommendations for dinner.

The gentleman at the desk, gave us a map, highlighted areas to walk through and gave us recommendations to eat. This man was right on with all of his dinner recommendations! We told him how impressed we were with the places he told us to eat. He explained that the hotel owner routinely visits restaurants and creates a list of places that he would want to eat. The owner is not affiliated with any restaurants and does not receive commissions. He only recommends places that he thoroughly enjoys. If you stay at this hotel, be sure to get the restaurant recommendations.

The first night out, my husband commented that he was nervous about where we were staying because there weren't many people around. Come to find out, we were within a block of the President's house in Italy. Needless to say, there were all sorts of polizia, local and national, always visible around the area we stayed. There was no reason whatsoever to feel unsafe. Once we got the lay of the land, we were much more confident in our choice.

The hotel is ideally located for walking around Rome. We were able to get to most places within a 20 minute walk. Many places were closer than this. The hotel staff also explained how to use the bus system, which was very easy once they helped introduce us to the stops, etc. We chose to walk most of the time to walk off all the food we were eating.

The breakfast was a continental buffet. It was adequate, nothing fancy. We had plenty to choose from each morning.

The hotel staff also arranged for our ride to the airport, and it was cheaper than taking a cab.
The bed was very comfortable, and the room was air conditioned. The rooms were all very chic in design as compared with traditional decor in other hotels. I loved the hotel, the price, and the location. The hotel was incredibly quiet, which is nice from the fast paced noisy city of Rome.

The staff, as I mentioned, was extremely helpful.

We stayed at Suite Dreams in September on honeymoon and had a great time. We had one of the junior suites which at 250 Euros a night wasn't cheap but we felt was just about value for money.
The suite itself was very nice, lovely king size bed, a big corner sofa and a 2 person jacuzzi. All fixtures and fittings were new and the window had an electronic shutter to block out any street noise and the morning light if you wanted a lie in.
The manger/owner Pier Francesco greeted us on our arrival and explained that he was there to help us with anything we needed. Having been to Rome previously we explained that we really wanted to go to some good restaurants and had struggled to fine anything above average last time.
Pier Francesco recommended and booked us a table for a restaurant every night we stayed there (5 in total) and all were either very good or brilliant. Even the restaurant below the hotel called Target which we booked 30 minutes after arrival was good.
The only thing this hotel could improve on is the selection of breakfast. Croissants and toast and great coffee was nice every day but a real repetition.
Overall the staff are super friendly and very helpful (only question is recommending Carrani Tours - who are completely rubbish and not worth using!). the hotels location is great too, great public transport links and in walking distance of most attractions barring the vatican.
Would definitely go back.

I spent a week end in Rome staying one night at suite dreams. We travelled by train so the location close to Termini was perfect. The area is not the best in Rome there is no breathtaking view but it is central and all attractions are at walking distance or by tube and busses.
THe hotel is very small (one floor of a building) very clean the staff is very nice the price is reasonable , The room was small but ok . The bathroom large. The breakfast in the morning was essential and self service. No real espresso (Nespresso was available) no freshly squeezed orange juice but by italian standard it was ok.
Two issues :
The shower water had a temperature variable with time going from hot to cold which was unpleasant.
No slippers where available
I would certainly recommand this hotel but please fix shower water temperature !
