“Roman Holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

We just returned from 12 days in Roma. We stayed the whole time at the President and loved it. First impression: clean, well managed and welcoming Lots of space in our room for two. Cleaned and freshened every day. Every staff member was friendly and attentive. Breakfast buffet was the best I've ever seen at a Best Western. Wish they were this good in the States. The subway and the trolley are literally out the door about 20 yards away to whisk you to anywhere in Roma. We went for evening strolls in the neighborhood which is away from the historic center, but which made us feel all the more apart of the local scene. Local restaurants just blocks away with sidewalk tables. All in all great value for the money, but even more so, our memories are enhanced by having a pleasant and enjoyable hotel to come back to each night after sightseeing all day.

We stayed 2 nights at this hotel because I remembered it from a previous visit and was very pleased with the rooms and the buffet. I was not disappointed this time either. The rooms were a good size (some are smaller than others. We were moved from room 301, which was small to 321 which was much larger). The breakfast buffet was very good! It was an unbelievable price for what we received. In addition, it is a 10 minute walk to the Colliseum! the department store, Coin, is also a very short walk! If you are looking for cleanliness, value, and good location, then this is a good stop for you!

Room Tip: Make sure you ask for thelarger room like room 321 or room 221.

This hotel is just at the exit of metro Manzoni station. A good location. Maybe this is the only 'pro' for this hotel. The room is not so spacious if you think about 'Best Western,' Yes, this is a hotel in Rome. No American standard applied.
They provide a computer to access to the internet free, but someone is always using it.

Staff were very pleasant and helpful but the hotel is not as well equipped or luxurious as you would expect from a '4 star' rating. Breakfast are very good but the restauarnt was not open in the evenings. However, for a short break in Rome, the hotel is a very adequate and reasonably positioned to enjoy the wonders of this city.

Staff friendly and helpful, room basic, general facilities ok. I would stay again. You get what you pay for, don't expect a five star at this price. Good value snacks in the bar, not at silly London prices or suitable for food snobs. Good buffet breakfast.

Room Tip: If traffic noise bothers you ask for a room at the back.
