When we decided to return to Rome this year, it was definitely our intent to stay at iQ Hotel. Although they have higher room rates now compared to my last visit in 2010, the hotel has remained steadfast in providing great service.
The hotel is ideally located near the Roma Termini. Walking distance actually if you are smart enough to travel with a small carry-on with wheels.Nothing beats being close to the main train station, the Metro (Repubblica station is just at the corner).
The concept of the hotel is to provide the basic services - a clean spacious room, internet that really works and an empty bar ref to fill with what you would like to eat and drink. This eliminates the need to be charged 3 euros per can of coke, etc. On various floors within the hotel they have coin operated laundry machines, vending machines that dispenses soda, sandwiches, even wine and yes, umbrellas and ponchos in case the weather turns sour!
Check-in and check-out are easy. Unfortunately on our return trip after our tour they could not confirm a room through the length of our stay so we can to find another hotel.
The breakfasts are 10 euros but they provide a good buffet selection that will keep you full on your Roman excursion. They have a variety of fresh fruits, cheeses, cold cuts, beverage and juices, etc.
Overall, a great hotel in the middle of Rome centro that provides great conveniences. I will definitely return and always recommend it to friends.
