This is indeed a very nice hotel to stay. We stay for three nights at IQ hotel and we were very pleased to choose this hotel.
Just a short walk from Rome central train station (Termini) in a not very quiet position, even if were on the 4th floor we can hear the noise from the street.
Otherwise the hotel was really, really great. We choose to stay in a small double room, yes it is really small, but the room was very cosy with a great bathroom with shower and good space.
The best things and this is why if we ever visit Rome again we choose again IQ is the beautiful terrace with the vending machines and the one of the best breakfast I have ever eaten in my life.
Before we visit Rome we believe that Rome is a large town having very long distances between the sightseeing but we were wrong. Rome is one of the best walking cities in Europe. I believe that is the best city for families with little children’s.
You can get to any sight that you want from the hotel in no more than an hour. Piazza di Spagna is just a 10 minute walk from the hotel and also Fontana di Trevi.
Because I and my wife like to walk very much after our second day we see all the major sights of Rome so we were a little board.
And there is where IQ Hotel terrace came and save our trip! After a long walk I Rome with the temperature been more than 36 Celsius (Middle July) the nights on the terrace was like an oasis for us. The vending machines with bottles of water and snacks, another one with beverages and one with free ice and coffee (You will find the cheapest bottle of water in all Rome, trust me just 50 cent a bottle).
If you are thinking to book a room with breakfast or without, do not bother take the breakfast. I cannot get of my chair after eating one the most delicious and full of everything that you can imagine breakfast. It worth every cent you pay.
I must not forget the excellent free Wi-Fi.
Yes it is an expensive hotel with not so good soundproof but the night times that we have on the terrace of the IQ Hotel with other guests of other countries made that trip one of the best we have and trust me we travel a lot.
Hope you find my contribution helpful for you.
