“Fantastic weekend”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

My husband researched quite a few hotels before we chose this one, we stayed there in March 2012, when we got there 12 pm they said our room was ready, this was a nice room and very clean we booked the free shuttle service into Rome which the hotel provides. The staff are very helpfull with anything we requested and the breakfast had plenty of choice. We liked it so much we are going again in March to the same hotel this year as Italy is my favorite place in the world and can't wait to go back to Rome. I would highly recommend this hotel see you in March!

We stayed here for two nights for a weekend tour of Rome. The staff were very attentive and helpful, and the rooms were clean and tidy albeit somewhat old fashioned.

Although the Massimi is not close to centre of Rome, they offer a free mini bus twice a day in and out of the centre. We did not take advantage of the return trip instead using cheap metro to return.

The breakfast was continental buffet, and as per many other reviews the chief waiter was an ebullient character very willing to engage and offer advice on what was on offer.

Overall I would recommend the Massimi to anyone on a budget who did not object to the commute into central Rome.

Park Hotel Dei Massimi is located in what seems to be a mostly residential area outside the city centre. First impression from the outside was not ideal,with some building work (looks like an extension to the hotel) going on, but from check in to check out , we had an absolutely wonderful stay. I cant praise the reception staff highly enough. Nothing was too much trouble, and I think the reason for that is that they completely understand the help that visitors who have never been to Rome, or indeed Italy, and with little or no Italian, require.
Plenty of advice regarding travel into and around the city . The shuttle from the hotel to either the Vatican museums or Vatican metro stop is definately the best way to get into the city , just book with reception the day before.
As has been said before, the rooms could be described as a little dated, but are clean, and very comfortable, and benefit from daily chambermaid service .
Bar and restaurant staff also very friendly and helpful and totally fluent in English.
Buffet breakfast is excellent , and yes Gennaro is the man!!!
We ate only one night in the restaurant, but the food and service were first class.
No reservations about recommending this hotel, and would definately return if visiting Rome again.

Dear Russ B 61,
thanks for your positive comments. Work in progress next the hotel is for creating a wellness center and you can’t imagine what kind of center ! Lakes : one with salt water and pools with cold or hot water, saunas and so on
Thank you very much also about Gennaro and yes he’s a perfect man in his job !
We’re glad to have you again here!

We stayed 3 nights here and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The staff were all friendly, helpful and welcoming. The breakfast and dinner were good though the evening menu is not extensive but it was lovely to relax and eat in the restaurant after a hard day trekking around Rome. We decided to upgrade our room on arrival as the standard room we were given was very small, The superior room was delightful, large, light and airy with a sofa and a large balcony, The hotel gave us useful maps and directions and the shuttle bus which is bookable for the morning and evening, was great. We often caught the 913 bus at the top of the hill, about 10 minutes walk from the hotel, which takes you into the centre of the city or picked it up at the terminus back home (about 20 to 30 minutes). We didn't try any of the local restaurants as we went back into Rome on our last evening. The hotel could do with a bit of modernisation but if was very clean and comfortable. It would be lovely to go back in the warmer months as there is a pretty garden and a huge terrace.

Room Tip: Upgrade to a superior room if you don't like small rooms.

We came back from this hotel last Friday. It was excellent, a little out of the way but we used the free shuttle bus there and back so there was no problem getting into Rome. You do need to book the shuttle in advance though.

There was so much choice for breakfast and we made friends with Genero the head waiter who was so accommdating and funny and made breakfast a really fun time. You can see that he genuinely loves his job and tries his utmost to keep his customers happy. Hope he gets back to London some day!

We had dinner in the hotel on our last night and was served by Benny who was hilarious. He spoke very good English and kept the jokes coming even though he was really tired from a long shift. The food was good and reasonably priced.

We had a very clean room and a great view from the 4th floor over Rome. The reception staff were really helpful and the cleaning staff were very polite. I would definitely recommend this hotel and would stay there again.

Room Tip: High floors at the front have a great view over Rome.

It is true that this hotel is a ways out of the city center, and that the rooms could use a bit of updating, however, it is better than your typical Italian/Spanish/European hotel. Located in a residential neighborhood, it's quiet and a great reprieve from the hustle and bustle of the tourist areas.

The rooms are very spacious and clean. The bathrooms are large by comparison and have all the amenities (blowdryers, soap, shampoo) you could need. Plus, you could always ask housekeeping for extras and they would gladly give them to you (extra soap and towels).

The staff makes it so easy for you and really goes out of their way to help and offer friendly suggestions. I took the shuttle into the city center every morning (just tell the desk the night before). They even offered to arrange a return trip but I never knew when I would get back so I just took the bus. I bought a ticket in the metro station and just used that to take the bus back. It was easy!

Breakfast was a treat and Gennaro made it much better. So friendly & attentive. The buffet was plentiful with cereals, yogurts, meats, cheeses and pastries. I never left hungry!

After long days of sightseeing I would head back to the hotel to freshen up before dinner. The restaurants recommended by the hotel were great- and much less expensive than the ones in the tourist areas of the city. These were real neighborhood establishments servicing the locals of the area and the ones I tried were all outstanding with very good service. Be aware though- unlike other cities where dinner starts at 10, here the restaurants here close much earlier! I wanted to return to one I had been to before, but arrived at 10:15 and the kitchen had already closed. So its best to call before you head out wandering! (I did find another small and delightful place, but it took some prudence on my part).

Overall, I would certainly stay here again and would highly recommend it.

Hotel a little bit out of the way, but can get into Rome by bus very easily, room very clean and spacious and a lovely big balconey. Hotel staff all extremely friendly and very helpful. A special mention to Gennaro (breakfast) who made our stay even more pleasurable. Would highly recommend. A word of warning avoid the month of August as all local bar and restaurants are closed for the summer so was limited to eating in the hotel and did not get to experience the local cuisine.
