“Perfect location”
Reviewed May 11, 2012

This hotel was in a perfect location. Our room was very spacius, on 4th floor. Nice and friendly personal. The breakfast was poor for my taste, but typical for Italy and France.

Room Tip: Chose 4th floor. The street are very busy, but the windows take out the noice.

My girlfriend and I stayed ay the Giolli hotel during April 2012. We booked a double standard room with view on via nasionale. The room was fairly spacious and very very clean. The location is just the best you can get in Rome, in the very historical centre. Breakfast is good served in the "club bar" facing on rome's exhibition hall. Services were also very good as we could easily ask for room service at any time; wifi is also free!! (new hotel policy which is great!!) but the main reason for such a positive review is the staff (receptionists) which were ALWAYS friendly and ready to help suggesting the best restaurants and sites with a big smile.. :)

I spent one night in the hotel for business travel and needed something near Termini station. The hotel dors not have a lobby on the street and is on the 1st floor. I don't appreciate that, honestly. The room was average, some furnishings were well past their replacement age (ancient tv!!!) but the most uncomfortable issue was the noise, which did not come from the abundant traffic: it was all down to a non-carpeted corridor (noisy with heels and trolleys) , chatty staff at 5 AM in the morning and a mix & match of early cleaning lady noise for empty room. The doors do not insulate for noise at all and a neon lam in the room blinked when turned off. Breakfast is average,ok if you like everything with too
Much sugar. I did not rest at all.

Dear Mr. Edoardo,

Our building in which our hotel is situated on has been around since the 18th century and is considered an Ecologic hotel. These buildings are a big part of our culture like the art, churches and other beautiful attractions around the city which makes our city so unique.
Our hotel being rated a 3star superior means there are standards that we must keep to ensure to keep this level of excellence. Within our hotel we have a lot of different types of room, our standard rooms have basic technology such as the TV and all of our more superior rooms have more updated and luxury appliances. All our standard rooms have marble bathrooms, a safe, a mini bar, air conditioner and heating systems. You can view all this information on our website.
With regards to the “neon lamp” in the room blinking, I wish you would of come to us as soon as it had happened so that we could have resolved the situation for you right then and there, with either replacing the globe or upgrading your room. Within our hotel all our windows are sound proofed and the glass is reinforced, we also have fire doors which is illegal not to have. We don’t have carpet on around the hotel because it is very unhygienic and attracts a lot of dust and dust mites.
With regards to the chatting we have two cleaning staff that don’t commence work until 8:00am and at 9:00am the rest of the cleaning staff commence work because there are no rooms to clean before. Our breakfast service not only includes, different types of tea, juices and authentic Italian coffee but we also offer high in sugar and salt dishes such as croissant, honey, ketchup, jam and cakes, but we have a healthy option including all different types of fruit, yogurts, cheeses and ham.

We appreciate you taking the time to write us a review. Without valid customers like yourself we wouldn’t be aware of how our clients perceive us, resulting in the improvement of all our staff members customer service levels . Your feedback is a big part of the success of our hotel.


Your sincerely,

My husband and I have recently spent 3 nights at the Giolli Hotel and have to say that the hotel is positioned in a perfect location within walking distance to all the main attractions-even the Vatican City if you enjoy a longer stroll.There is a great hop on-off city tour bus available to break up the trips.The reception staff were all friendly and helpful and we had a lovely room overlooking the main street. It was spottlessly clean and well equipped even with a mini fridge and hairdryer.The breakfast buffet was adequate to get the day started bearing in mind that is a continental breakfast and not the 'full English', and the food was fresh.The hotel is just a ten minute walk from the train terminal so you do not need to get a taxi to get to it-as long as you have wheeled luggage!All in all we had a fantastic stay and would happily stay here again.Thanks to all at Giolli

This is my 4th stay at Giolli Hotel and it is like a return to visit my Italian family. The staff, especially Carlo are welcoming and happy to make my visit all it can be. Located on Via Nazionale it is a walkable distance from the train station, and 7 minutes at most, by taxi. Rooms are clean, generous and some have larger bathrooms due to their location. Above the 4th floor are private apartments, so I request a 2nd floor to minimize possible noise from 'family time.'
Rooms are equipped with a desk, a free safe and there is stocked refrigerators charging reasonable prices for water, wine and snacks. Giolli is rated 3-star and its rates are very reasonable, especially for the city of Rome. Breakfasts include juices, hard-cooked eggs, fresh croissants, rolls, tarts, cheese and Italian cold cuts. There is a barista too, who will serve up your morning cappuccino or espresso.
The location of the Giolli couldn't be better to visit all of the historical sites Rome offers. From the front of the building you can see the Vittorio Emmanuel 'wedding cake' building and it is a short walk to it and all of Rome's historic sites. To visit the Trevi Fountain, so you can toss in your coins & return, you just cross the street (Via Milano) and walk through the tunnel, take a left and you're there.
Across from the hotel is the Exposition building which offers changing exhibitions, including free photographic exhibits, a cafe and great book and gift store. A taxi stand is directly across from the hotel and in the blocks nearby are several good trattorias and restaurants. Several buses run down Via Nazionale and with the bus signs that list all of the stops, you can't get lost unless you want to!
Flying back to the West Coast USA means a hideously early airport departure. But to let you know how thoughtful the staff is, a breakfast is set up for me to eat before my car arrives to take me home. Reading some of the reviews that mention some problems, I'd would like you to give the Giolli Hotel another visit and you'll find, as I did, that the staff are really warm and professional.
I am already looking forward to my next visit when again I'll stay at the Giolli Hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room 3rd floor or below. Some end rooms also have larger bathrooms.

My husband and I have just returned from a five night stay at the Giolli. We were celebrating our 29th Wedding Anniversary in Rome. We had booked our trip through Airmiles, but after booking we attempted to upgrade our room through the Giolli from a standard room. Unfortunatley this was not possible but we were very kindly presented with a bottle of sparkling wine on our arrival by way of apology.
We were initially disappointed with our standard room as it was very small and the view, as described in previous reviews, was onto an outside space and other windows. But the room was spotlessly clean and in reality how much time do you want to spend in your hotel room when you have Rome on the doorstep! And quite literally there was so much on the Giolli's doorstep. Fantastic central location which made it very easy to get around and see all of the sights - make sure that you have comfy shoes! So many lovely restaurants very close to the hotel. Highly recommend the pizzeria Ricci - Est Est Est - just round the corner!
The Giolli's breakfast was fairly basic but certainly adequate enough to kick start your day.
The staff were all very efficient but not overly friendly.....we certainly weren't greeted with friendly smiley faces at any point but we were happy to settle for answers to any queries that we had and we certainly got this.
The proof of a hotel doing all that is required of it is if you would return and the answer to that is yes. It's all about being realistic, it is a 3 star hotel in the centre of a beautiful city and it delivers all that is required of it for it's purpose.

Room Tip: Possibly request front facing room!

Dear Jhon,

Thank you for sharing your review for Hotel Giolli

We are very happy to hear that such a nice couple has appreciated our Hotel.

Unfortunately not all rooms face on Via Nazionale (the main street) but if specifically mentioned at the time of reservation, we provide our clients with what they need: being champaigne, fruit, cakes for particular events and as in your case a room with street view. The Hotel is located in a 800 century building and the rooms are all of standard sizes approved by the Touristic Board of authorities. We are however, delighted that you have valued Giolli Hotel for its varied breakfast choices and the cleanness of the rooms.

Next time please come and visit us and we will make sure to provide you with a spacious street view room.

Kind regards
