“perfect location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013

The hotel had a perfect location and very good maintained room, the breakfast was nice but not various enough, the only downside was the staff, not friendly at all and sort of snobish. but still i would recommend this hotel because of its magnificiant location near piazza navona and the pantheon, it is also just few steps away from the open tour bus which is great! it is also surrounded by many shops and great restaurants .

My wife and I stayed here while on our honeymoon trip couple of years ago.

The hotel is average but the location is very good..It is few minutes away from Piazza Navona.. and few other tourist spots..

The staff was not so friendly..I personally felt that the guy at the reception in the morning had some ego issues..

A beautiful hotel in a beautiful city. It was quiet, clean and in a perfect location. The staff were lovely, friendly and always helpful. I will certainly go back there again. I did not want to come home. Fully and totally recommended. The only draw back was the very noisy air conditioning in the room. The room was too hot without it but it was very, very noisy.

Room Tip: We had a room on the 4th floor which was at the back and so very peaceful and a lovely view of the c...

That´s the number one reason to choose this hotel. Close to Piazza Navona, and within 10-15 minutes walk of almost every site worth seeing in Rome centre.

Breakfast was fine. Cold servings, but with a great rooftop terrace and good food. No english breakfast, though;-).

No so good: The bed was two single beds put together, meaning there was a board running down the middle of a king size bed.

NOT soundproof at all !! Very easy to hear what was going on in the adjacent rooms, and a lot of scrambling with chairs from the rooftop terrace around breakfst time. But who wants to sleep in when you are in Rome anyway :-). The windows toward the street on the fourth floor was fine though.

A little wear and tear, but generally ok. Did I mention the location was excellent ?:-)

We stayed at Hotel Genio in June 2013 and were very disappointed. The room was only basic, with very uncomfortable matress and pillows and the bathroom only basic and not as clean as it should be. The shower head was so small, no water pressure and the handle broken. The minibar was never replenished even though the prices charged were good and we would have used it more. Furniture is outdated and the hotel needs a really good clean-up everywhere. Breakfast - very limited - was served on the roof terrace (with fantastic views over the old city) where sea gulls left feathers and dirt that were never cleaned. The price we paid was not very high but we did not get our money's worth. The location is very good - just off Piazza Navona - and of a walking distance to many of the attractions one would visit in Rome. The reception people were friendly and very helpful but other than that there are not many more positives.

We liked this hotel, and stayed for 7 nights in a room at the front. Some street noise, but not really a problem for us. Useful to have taxi rank outside, to visit more distant attractions and to get back to airport. Lots of things to see within walking distance but it's a long hike to the Colosseum or uphill to the Villa Borghese, so we took taxis and walked back. The area between the Piazza Navona and the Chiesa Nuova is on the doorstep, has a lot of charm, and plenty of bars and restaurants. The best we tried was the Ristorante Montevecchio in the Plaza Montevecchio. Rooms have kettels, but bring some tea bags as initial supply was never replenished!

Room Tip: 5th floor rooms have a small balcony and may be quieter than rooms on lower floors.
