This hotel is beautiful! The staff were gracious and accommodating. The 4th floor room was a little on the small side (three of us were sharing) but the terrace was AMAZING!!! and more than made up for the room size. The free breakfast was superb and the meal we had in the evening was excellent. The hotel is not near any of the sites in Rome but they have free shuttle to the city center daily. If I had any negative comment, it would be that you should know your roommate very well since the shower and toilet doors are glass.

BAD:

1) The worst part. It is very Far Off from City Center, you are there to see ROME, not to lay in your bed. This would ruin your trip to Rome.
2) Internet! It's like Hell. Out of 72 hours stay, it worked for 10 hours MAX. and speed was terrible
3) Staff is not helping
4) Breakfast range of items is poor

Not recommended!

Hotel is fair. Reasonably clean but too far outside Rome. Buffet breakfast reasonably good. Our double room was 2 single beds pushed together. Taxi driver tried to rip us off by going scenic route- taxi cost €14 on way in to city and €28 back that night! On check out then we were told there was a €50 charge for a film we watched even though we hadn't turned on the television!! Be careful of that scam - charge was miraculously dropped when we argued!!

My wife and I stayed 8 nights at the Zone and we were not disappointed. It is hard to narrow down all the good things about this hotel, but I'll try. First is the free breakfast buffet every morning from 06:30-10:30. WOW! Everything you could want(including delicious coffee that hits the spot before venturing out in your Rome excursion). Second is the free wi-fi which we found to be very good and so convenient while traveling abroad. Third is the free shuttle they offer into the city center. You must sign up for a reservation to get on it, as it only carries 8 people in the van. They pick you up as well and bring you back. The housekeeping was impeccable and we came back every evening to fresh towels and a made bed. The gentleman at the desk seems to work around the clock and is extremely courteous and patient with guests. The train station is just down the hill, which makes it easy to get to and from the city at will (just take the train to Valle Aurelia, transfer to Line A and get off in the city). We ended up taking the train from the airport to the hotel and walking from the Balduina stop. It is in a quiet residential neighborhood which made for peaceful sleeping, which was in contrast to the travelers we met staying in the city who complained of cars and people walking past their windows at night. Final thought is that this place was SO worth it! If we find ourselves in Rome again, we will be sure to stay at the Zone.

Room Tip: The rooms are not very sound proof, which is common in Rome, so we would recommend not getting a gro...

Lovely clean hotel and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The shuttle bus was very handy as the hotel was quite far from the tourist part of Rome (though close to the Vatican). But the walk home was very hard after a day of hiking around the ruins and city as it is at the top of a hill. The gym at the hotel was very good compared to other hotels I have been to. If I was to go to Rome again, I would not stay here purely on the fact that it is so far from the city centre even though it claims on the website "a stones throw away".

Three friends and I arrived in Rome late on a Sunday evening, we had arranged with the hotel for a transfer to pick us up at a set time, as it was late and we had not stayed in Rome before and did not know where we were going. However we waited for an hour and still no transfer arrived. We then were forced to arrange to get to the hotel ourselves and ended up paying for a very pricey taxi. When we eventually arrived at the hotel we were shouted at by a very rude receptionist who told us that our taxi was there now waiting for us, which is no help two hours after you've landed.
The hotel was much further than it has described, "a stones throw from the Vatican", turned out to be 25 mins in a taxi, or else walk through a very unfriendly area.
The double bed I had paid for turned out to just be two beds pushed together, which was disappointing.
The building itself is very nice, even if the walls were paper thin. The maids did a good job, it was very clean.
When we went to leave for our very early flight we were made to pay a large amount of city tax, which I was told was included in the original price. Meaning that we did not have enough euros to pay our airport transfer, (€70). We then had to pay our minibar bill, which they insisted we paid at the end, despite that being 4:30am, instead of the previous evening, by another rude unhelpful receptionist.
There were far too many problems caused by this overpriced hotel for my 2 day stay in Rome, I would not recommend it to anyone.
