We have booked 4 nights in Rome at iQRoma. What a great find this hotel has been. The rooms are very modern, with spacious bathrooms and our room overlooks the Teatro Della Opera. It's a 5 min walk to the Termini, and a 10-15 min walk to major attractions. The breakfast on the rooftop is great, lots of choices. There is a laundry, gym, business qcentre and ice as well as vending machines in case you have forgotten something. Free wifi throughout. When I return to Rome, I will definitely stay here again.

Stayed: October 2013, traveled as a couple

If you are after a romantic, luxury hotel slap bang in the middle of Rome with amazing views over the historic centre, a swanky cocktail bar and restaurant, room service, turn down service and porterage then this is not the hotel for you. However if, like us, you were after a clean, modern hotel offering all that you could need, no more and no less, with easy access to public transport and a good value (EUR10) plentiful breakfast to set you up for a busy day's sightseeing then you can't go wrong with the iQ hotel. My partner and I travelled with my 76 year old mum who, although very fit, probably wouldn't have appreciated walking to the main sights (20 mins to the Colosseum, 45 minutes to St Peter's) five days in a row. However Termini station is a five minute walk away with tubes and buses to take you where you need to go (elbows at the ready - leave that London Underground politeness behind!). We found all the staff to be friendly, polite and helpful, creating a really relaxed atmosphere with no pretensions. Rooms were spotlessly clean and my partner always breathes a sigh of relief when I give top marks to the bathroom, which I definitely did in this case. There are vending machines for anything 'extra' that you may need and judging by the photos on this site, the wine & beer vending machine is perhaps one of the most photographed sights of Rome! It was lovely to sit up on the roof terrace in the sunshine enjoying a prosecco after a busy day in hot, crowded but beautiful Rome. Believe the excellent reviews on this site - we are certainly glad that we did. If I had one small criticism it would be that the air conditioning was at times a little too cold, but rather too cold than too hot. I would recommend this hotel and would return to it if I am ever lucky enough to get the opportunity to revisit Rome.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front have balconies and a view of the Opera House.

Everything you need but no extra like restaurants in a city which is full of places to eat. However breakfast was plentiful.

Room was exactly like it was described on hotel website.

Outsourced transport service with mini van was very nice extra service. Cost, 50€, was little bit high.

This is not the first time I stayed in this wonderful hotel, as each time I feel as I'm at home. The friendly staff, the comfortable rooms, the vending machines that will not let you need anything from outside the hotel, the rich and tasty breakfast.
As of the location, the hotel is close to the central station and most of Rome's attractions are within walking destance.
I recommend this hotel to everyone who visits Rome and definately I will stay there again when I visit Rome.

We stayed on the IQ hotel because it's close to Roma termini and the proximity to everything. The price for the hotel was great because hotel around that are really expensive. The hotel is super clean and the offer everything you can ask for. Rooms are comfortable and new. I completely recommend this hotel for couples or business

In Rome/Italy in general you don't get the usual suspects easily i.e. the large chains of business hotels we are used to ...... WE take so many things for granted... family trip and stayed at the Hilton at the Rome airport as could not get the first two days at iQ..... Hilton was a disaster (unusually) however, iQ was a welcome break in Italy... Very professional, purpose built, clean very efficient, excellent location free internet, FREE TV (well Hilton didn't have a single channel free :0))............ Great selection of restaurants to go to and everything you want to see in Rome is at your dooorstep........... Go for it and enjoy!!! I will surely go again....Hmmm, English channels or switch possible...............

We stayed a few nights in Rome and glad we found it! Very handy location being close to many conveniences... Ie Roma termini 5 mins walk, Colloseum 20 mins walk.. Some handy facilities inc small gym with limited equipment, laundry with washer and dryer (does get used frequently so get in quick) and vending machines for drinks/snacks which are well priced. Rooms are very modern, spacious and clean.... Great value for money considering some other hotels we researched were more expensive. The only cons is the air cond which takes some time to kick in and the breakfast... Although it's a full buffet for $10 Euro's p/per we are not big b.fast eaters so we found some great coffee shops around the corner which fed us for less than $10 Euro's all up

Room Tip: Located next to the opera so ask for a room facing away from the street... You are able to hear some...
