Reviewed March 21, 2014

Located in a quiet residential area not far away from the tourist attractions and from the main train station, this small hotel is easily accessible by subway. Simply stop at S. Agnese Annibaliano station on the blue metro line, take exit Corso Trieste, turn left on the first street called Via Tolmino, and walk straight until you see this superb hotel on your left. The area is also served by several bus lines, but I don’t recommend to using them on your arrival because the bus stop is not so obvious.

The first floor is amazing. It is large, cozy and tastefully decorated with antique furniture and items. There is even a small conference room with church benches as chairs.

The size of the room is acceptable, but it is difficult to have 2 large suitcases opened simultaneously. The supplied soaps and shampoo are excellent, probably one of the best I have experienced. Disposable slippers are also provided. Everything is super clean : the lobby, the corridors, the room, the bathroom, the toilets … EVERYTHING !

Breakfast is excellent with a good variety. In the evening, bruschetta and pasta were served … for free ! And it was quite tasty on top of that. Bottles of wine can be purchased at an affordable price for the quality. Wine is also sold by glass, but choice is limited.

The staff is all professional. Most are amazing, but only one was at the border of being rude. Unfortunately it is the first one that we met at the reception after a long journey. We clearly noticed that people in Rome are generally rude compared to other cities we visited.

The only disadvantage of this hotel arises when you must arrive very early in the morning at a site to avoid queuing. Otherwise, it is convenient to visit the city. There are few restaurants around the metro station and there is a grocery store just at its exit. It is called “Conrad”. Roma Pass is sold at the reception and I strongly recommend it to avoid queues at the main tourist sites.
I have no problem to recommend this hotel and would return without any hesitation. We even received a small gift on departure.

We stayed at this Hotel for the recent Italy v England six nations match. The Hotel is located in a lovely quiet area but only 5 mins walk from the nearest Metro. Taxis to the centre of Rome are reasonable for a group of four, circa 12-15 Euros. The Hotel has a lovely independent feel to it, care has been taken to make it very comfortable and relaxed. The Hotel Staff are efficient, friendly and helpful - lot's of good advice for local Restaurants etc. Breakfast is typical continental offer but all very fresh. The hotel bar offers a good selection of wine at very reasonable prices for a hotel. When we return to Rome we will certainly stay here again

Room Tip: Rooms with the roof top terrace are worth the extra. There is some noise from the lift shaft adjacen...

i'm sorry for the delay... i stayed at relais 16, 3 months ago, for 7 great nights with my mother.
this hotel is great. very clean rooms, very good breakfast, the staff is amazing.
breakfast: very good,my mother and i are vegan, so the staff made sure we will have fresh soya milk every morning. also the breakfast included fresh juice and fresh fruits. and the coffe they make is great.
room: at first we had room on the second floor, since we didn't like it, the stuff change the room for us for the next day. we got a great room with large balcony on the 5th floor. very good bed, very clean!
location: the enviroment is very nice and quite, pay attention that most of the attractions are 10 min. driving. but there is a bus station near by the hotel and a metro stop 3 min. walking.
also-you can take a train from the airport to the general bus station, and then take a local bus to the hotel (10 min +-)
staff: they are willing to help you with everything!!! thank you very much especially to TONY for booking us tickets, taxis, explaining us how to get from one point to other, marks us on the map the best ares for shooping etc.
very Recommended... great hotel great rome!!

My husband found this hotel through his own research on trip Advisor and hotels.com. It was reasonably priced and he called he hotel and booked by phone as recommended on a past review. The location of the hotel is a quiet and clean neighborhood close to public transportation and the actual hotel has some unique features. Watch out for the hidden cost! Make sure that your confirmation include the number of persons. An additional 15 euros a night was added. Therefore, the rate marketed online and via phone was only for promotional marketing. The free wifi and breakfast comes at a cost, plus local tax.

Dear guest
there is no hidden cost!
The € 15 was charged for the second person instead of one person stated on the reservation made by you and not for promotional marketing.
You have benefited of free WiFi as well as free breakfast wich is free to all customers here at Relais 6 and has been since we opened.
Local taxes are made payable to customers in all hotels in Rome and is so in many other cities in the world.
It is very serious to write things that are absolutely not true in the Tripadvisor reviews.

Staff were excellent, being both friendly and helpful. We had a beautiful quiet room. Although not located in the city centre, it is a short walk to the nearest train station. Buses are also an option, and tickets for both can be bought at reception. They also can recommend places to visit. The bar at night is a great addition, with delicious complimentary nibbles provided by a fantastic chef if a drink is purchased. Some nights we didn't even need dinner! Breakfast is amazing, with a good coffee and a large selection of fresh food. Overall, especially considering the price, we could not recommend this place more. SNOOP OUT

Extremely friendly, efficient and helpful staff made this hotel the perfect place for a long weekend. We arrived relatively early in the morning and as they had a room available they gave us a free upgrade to a suite and let us straight in to the room.

We had gone to Rome to run in the Rome Ostia Half Marathon on the Sunday and had to be away from the hotel very early on the morning of the race, having first eaten our pre race breakfast. The hotel gave us access to the kitchen and provided us with a breakfast far before the "normal" time, which was very greatly appreciated.

The hotel staff were extremely helpful in providing information on how to get around in Rome and on recommending local (good and reasonably priced) restaurants.

The city metro system was only a ten minute walk away and gave easy access to the whole city.

We loved the (free) sweets at reception !

Relais 6 is a very pretty property. The bar, living room, library and rooms are very Roman and Vintage. Bar is really old fashioned and nice. It is really well priced. They offer free snacks with the drinks. It includes sandwiches, macaroni, chips etc. Breakfast is limited but nicely laid. Rooms are averaged sized. Beds are comfortable. Bathrooms are also decent with a nice bath tub. They do not have a restaurant or a cafeteria so you pretty much have to go outside for all your meals. It is located really far from all the tourist attractions , restaurant and shopping sites. Although there are a few shops and restaurant in the locality too. Metro station is a good 15 minute walk. Bus stop is around 5 minutes away.
People visiting Rome for the first time should prefer a more central location in my opinion. Though for the price the experience is completely worth it.

Dear Anish1710,
Thanks for publishing the review. We're glad you liked the organization and services offered by the Relais 6.As for the distance from the historical center of Rome, we would like to inform readers that the Relais 6 is located in a residential area not far from the Centre and very well served by public transportation. In fact, 5 mins max walk away is the Metro station that arrives at the Coliseum in around 15 minutes and on the corner of the street of the hotel is the bus stop for the city centre.
About the breakfast we would like to remind you that breakfast is offered to guests of the Relais 6 is always made with fresh and high quality as well as homemade pastries, croissants and breads baked daily. On request special foods are available for ciciliaci and allergic people
Since, however, the lack of restaurant and Cafe inside the hotel, Relais 6 bar is always open for every customer's need for the cafeteria. By 7 p.m., everyday, serves a happy hour paying only the drink, you can sample Mediterranean cuisine appetisers. While, in the immediate vicinity of the hotel there are many restaurants and pizzerias and also a great open hamburgheria from a few months and shops.
Kind regards
Beatrice e Salvatore Rizzacasa
