Reviewed February 4, 2013

Loved it.We stayed four nights here for our honeymoon of May 2011. We recommended it to our parents and their friends too which they enjoyed it the year after on one of their trips to Rome.
The staff are friendly, its central to station, Trevi & Spanish steps.
Plus a Gelateria just up the street! Divine! Oh, there is a lovely restaurant to the left of the hotel too. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Will be back one day.

The hotel is good, but difficult if you have luggage that you gotta lug if you get a room far away from reception area / elevator. Breakfast choices are limited for a vegetarian meal. Rooms are average.

The hotel is located near the Spanish Piazza, it is a great location, in walking distance to many of Rome's attractions.
But , and this is a huge but - the maintenance of the hotel is poor, I have experienced only our room - the door , the carpet, the tapestry, were dirty-old just used a long of time and not really cleaned, The tapestry and the bathroom door were damaged, the hotel is a non smoking hotel but it smells of all the cigarettes that were smoked there.
The sheets in the bed were clean
The staff is OK.
We got a lunch box on the day we checked out early (6:30 am while breakfast is served from 7:00 am), both pre-packed croissants had black mold on, not edible.
Breakfast is included, and is vary basic (not to say poor) comparing to breakfast in the hotels in Sienna, Florence and Ravenna.
The hotel is in great location and has great potential which is lost comparing to the above.
Although I am not looking to stay in the hotel room when I am traveling and I don't care much about fancy hotel room' this one was not fun to stay.

Room Tip: ask to see the room before you pay

I got later from local that 3 stars in Italy means 2 stars :) it's true. Location is great-just few steps till Spanish steps, 3 minutes till metro station Barberini.Walking distance Trevi Fontain, via de corso and many other places.Personal -nice, in the beginning they seemed rude, but later-very lovely, not very helpful sometimes with some information, but i survived.Well i must say again negative thing-about breakfast(but everyone tells me it typical for Italian hotels like this)-very poor , only bread cheese, bacon, tea, coffee, honey and some jams, croissant, some dry cake, milk 2 kind of cereal. Well in other 3 star hotels i had much richer breakfasts :)
It was very clean! they were cleaning daily :)
generally i'm satisfied, i don't regret

I stayed in the Hotel King in mid-November 2012. For the cost, I thought it was a real bargain, especially given the cost of lodging in Rome. My room was clean and comfortable (and Euro-small). The staff generally spoke English, and were friendly and helpful. The breakfasts were better than I expected. Of course, the real attraction of this place is the wonderful location. I like to walk in any city, and I never felt unsafe anywhere around the hotel. There are many easily walkable places nearby, such as the Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain, Via Venetto. And the subway is really close. The bottom line is that I'd definitely stay here again.

This hotel is located in a very touristy area of Rome. It is a few steps away from the Tivoli fountain and is about a 30 second walk from the Metro stop Barberini which is also the stop for the Trevi fountain. The area is well lit, and the cafes seem be open 24/7 as there is a constant flow of tourists to keep them going. Buses run through the area 24 hours a day and taxis are abundant around the fountain if needed.
The restaurants that I tried in the area were a bit pricey but the food was excellent.
The staff at the hotel were friendly, and even though the entrance to the hotel is not grand it is a well kept modern hotel. The elevator works, the hallways were clean and the carpeted areas were not worn out. The bar on the first floor had spacious sofas and the barman was happy to allow me to stay in there sending emails on my laptop long after he had closed the bar and left. I didn't eat in the bar as the restaurants of Rome were too tempting. However the breakfast was continental - croissants or toast and excellent coffee. Cereal and juices were available too.
The single room I stayed in was clean with a working A/c and heating. The windows had external blinds which were easy to operate. The toilet was cleaned daily, the shower had hot water, and the bed was comfortable. There was a safe in the room and a closet. The free WiFi Internet worked in my room on the fourth floor even though I was told it might not, the connection was good.
Would happily stay here again.

This hotel is located near Spanish steps. Excellent location. Rome is an expensive city. This place is not cheap but decent value for the location. But the room is very dirty and old. I would pay a little more for a better place.
