“Lovely modern clean hotel with friendly staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2014 via mobile

We've spent 5 nights in the IQ and it has been an ideal base for our trip to Rome. It's modern and very clean.
The staff have been great, the hotel is located centrally for access to main tourist spots (most within a 15 min walk)
There is also a metro close by.
The hotel style might not suit everyone but we loved the vending machines and the roof terrace was lovely, just make sure you read up on the style of the hotel before booking.
We have no complaints at all and would recommend it to anyone planning a trip to Rome.

This hotel is in the heart of the city in a great and safe location. The rooms are contemporary and nicely appointed with all the amenities you could want. Everything is immaculate and in perfect working order. A nice little extra is that there is a washer and dryer you can use and they both do a great job. The rooftop deck is fabulous and a wonderful place to spend a few hours. The front desk staff were incredibly helpful and extraordinarily accommodating. A special mention goes out to Cezar, Mikalai, and Larbi who were all gracious, warm, and all a part of making this hotel stay one of our favorites on this trip.

Travelled around Italy for 8 days, stayed in 4 different hotels (all 4 stars). IQ was the best by far.

Centrally located, this hotel is perfect for a stay in Rome, a few minutes away from the central station and within walking distance from many attractions. Plenty of restaurants around to check out.

I would definately recomment this hotel.

Will definitely stay here again. Everything is new. Location is great! Breakfast in the morning is totally worth the price! Great selection. Bathroom great. Good space. Free Wi-Fi and proximity to subway Ana train station. Staff was friendly and helpful.

I stayed at the iQ hotel in mid April at the beginning of a trip through Italy. I arrived at Fiumicino and simply took the Leonardo Express train (14 Euros) and then went out the front door of the Roma Termini and walked two blocks then turned left and walked two blocks to the hotel. The hotel is within easy walking distance of the train station and a metro station so getting from the airport and to anywhere in Rome is very easy, cheap and quick.

This is a newer hotel in central Rome. The room was, in my opinion, small but quiet with a sliding glass door leading to a small deck. The bed was a somewhat hard foam with mushy pillows. The room also included a mini-ref, closet safe, desk, work chair and blackout curtains that really worked. In the bathroom there was a bidet, towel warmer, small magnifying mirror, hair dryer, shampoo and body lotion with a very small shower.

The TV included a wide assortment of English language shows including CNBC, BBC World, Bloomberg, CNN International, Skynews, CCTV and Aljazeera. I didn't see any parking other than on the street. There was a great roof deck with alcohol vending machines for relaxing after seeing the many Rome sights. Breakfast was available but wasn't included in my room rate. There was a self-service laundry, gym, sauna and business center with Internet PC available for 5 Euros/hour.

I stayed at this hotel 3 nights and would recommend it as a clean, safe, newer hotel if coming to Rome. The location was within easy walking distance of the train station and most tourist sights. The hotel is a little pricey but I would return if given the chance and would recommend this hotel to others.

Just returned from a four night stay at the IQ and considering some of our experience with Italian hotels this one compares with most good and modern hotels that I prefer. Granted it is a matter of taste but the IQ was bright, spacious, comfortable and very clean. The staff was friendly and the facilities also very convenient. The 5th floor has vending machines with modest prices excellent for those times when you want a snack and do not want to go back out and search around the neighborhood. The choices may be limited for some but you can buy wine, beer, sodas and juices. A regular bottle of wine is only 6 Euros. Also, you have coffee or cocoa, chips, chocolate, etc. Then there is the terrace with comfortable seating open all hours. They even have heating lamps to keep you comfortable when it is colder. The only negative I have was that after the first day (of four nights stay) I had to keep asking for body lotion because the chamber maid would only leave lots of shampoo and no lotion, go figure, but that alone would not spoil our stay.

iQ Hotel Roma was a good find. Definitely a newer hotel it was great to have the security card entrance available in such a busy city. The rooms were well-planned/laid-out and we're quite clean. On the first floor, we expected a lot of street noise but the doors kept that outside. It was nice having access to even a little outdoor space. The reasonably priced vending machines on each floor, the available laundry machines and the small, but functional and clean fitness center were great benefits. It's worth noting that the TV connection wasn't the greatest. Cabs didn't have the easier time finding the hotel but we found it to be in a good walking distance to many things - the Coliseum, Trevi Fountain, etc. the front desk staff was helpful with early check-ins, directions, making needed change in euros and some reservations.
