“NOT a few minutes from Fiumicino Airport”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2013

I booked this hotel as I was flying into Rome Fiumicino airport late in the evening and flying out of the same airport the following morning. The Mercure Roma West website indicated that the hotel was a few minutes from the airport. This statement is totally UNTRUE. It takes about 30 minutes by taxi at a cost of 40 Euros. So this means 80 EUROS just for transportation to and from the airport.if you were to use public transportation to get there, this involves two buses and a train, not much fun with luggage.
You are far better off getting a hotel near Termini station. The bus takes you there for 5 Euros or you can get the train for 14 Euros.
I have no complaints about the room. It was spacious and comfortable.

This hotel has been quiete recently taken over by the Accor group and really deserves its four stars: spacious lobby, nice decor, friendly and helpfull staff, a lot of amenities in the room (coffee-tea maker, mini-fridge), free bottle of water (each day of your stay!), free Wifi in the room, good daily housekeeping etc. Make sure that your breakfast is included in your booking, so you can enjoy the extensive buffet. A few downsides: rooms are not sound proofed, so if there are people in the neighbouring rooms, you will definitely hear them, as well as the hotel guests that are smoking (evenings) or waiting for their bus (mornings) in front of the hotel.

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper, avoid the rooms at front side of the hotel, because of the noise, especi...

This a good hotel for travelers. Rooms comfy. I had to get ventilator checked as the room a bit of a stench. Staff could be a bit aloof & hotel is located in a residential area. Service is average. A typical hotel for business stay-over. Good value for money.

We booked this hotel for its spa and quiet location. We have stayed at another Mercure hotel which was previously a Ramada, and so were a bit cautious as we'd noticed a decline in their standards.
Firstlly - if you are about to book this hotel... Don't!
If you have already booked this hotel and can't refund, good luck...
The good things about this hotel are listed at the end, but this is everything we experienced in our "three-night" stay.
From Campino Airport, the taxi was 25 Euro. We arrived, the lady on the front desk (with glasses) checked our reservation, and said the room wouldn't be ready until 2pm. We chose to leave our luggage in store, and wonder around the area and book the spa.
At 2pm, when we had just finished booking the spa for 4pm, another lady from the reception team (Marianna) came up to us in the lobby and said "We have a problem, but also a solution. The soution is the most important part" we were told that the hotel was full and they could no longer accomodate us (even though we had already paid). We were also told that another hotel had been arranged, and asked to take a seat. For the next 45 mins, we could see Marianna frantically making phone calls. She asked us if we wanted something to drink, we said water. When the water arrived, we were told it would be 3 Euro! We were then told that another hotel had been arranged. We explained that we had booked a spa treatment, and Marianna said not to worry, the other hotel was much better than this one, and had all the facililties there, including a spa. She also said that they would cover the costs of the hotel, and it would include breakfast. Seeing as we had already paid for bed and breakfast at the Mercure, we thought this would be a minimum requirement. We also arrange to be collected the next morning at 10.30am so we could move our luggage back to the Mercure, and venture into Downtown Rome.

The alternative hotel was the All Time Relais & Sport (see separate review). This turned out to be the equivalent of a spruced up Travelodge with Room Service and an on-site sports centre (not a spa). The man doing the transfer obviously had no idea about this hotel, as parked on the street and walked up to the hotel, even though the hotel has its own car park). This was located in a very very run down area (opposite were abandoned shops with rampant graffiti). We asked the lady on reception if there was anywhere we could eat in the locality, she said no. The only place she could think of as a chinese restaurant (not really what we were after).

We rang the Mercure to speak to the manager to say that this hotel was unacceptable. The lady answering the phone said the manager was on another call, and she would ask him to call us back. He didnt. When I rang again, I spoke to a man called Edoardo. He was extremely apologetic. He mentioned that both the manager (Solanki Michel) and the General Manager (Disicchio) had left at 6pm, in the meantime there was nothing he could do. He also mentioned that Marianna had previously worked at the All Time, and so knew of its facilities, so must have been a problem in communication. He informed us that our stay at the Mercure would be upgraded to a suite

The next day, the Mercure's personal taxi driver came to pick us up. At the Mercure, we were told that we told that the room wasn't yet ready, although we could check into another room in the meantime. As we wanted to go to Rome, we opted to leave our luggage in store, rather than move 3 times in one day!

On our return, the suite was nice and clean. We were offered a complimentary drink at the bar (though no-one informed the barman). The next day we decided to spend at the hotel and surround area and booked our spa treaments (See below for both). At Reception I spoke to Luca, to book a taxi for the next morning for 7am, I was informed it was a fixed charge of 40 Euro. Later, I went to change this to 7.30am, unfortunately for me, I was again served by Marianna and received an inquisition about the change "why?" "what time is your flight" "are you sure" and again later "what time is your flight, and your gate closure?"). In the room we needed extra towels, so rang reception. Initially Marianna was fine, and arranged for towels to be sent. The second time, I was again questioned... "did my colleague not bring the towels?", "why?...

Upon checking out, the taxi turned out to be the hotel taxi. A normal taxi is only allowed to charge you a maximum of 38 Euro to Campino Airport by law, we were charge 40 Euro!

Based on the staff's "we'll ust say everything is great, even if it isn't" and "now we transferred you, we don't want to know" attitude, I would never advise this hotel... Ever!!

Breakast
Breakfast was, ok. I would not even pay 5 Euro for this, much better is available less than 10mins walk away.

Spa
Don't use the spa for treatments, the pool is nice. The Hawian and Californian massages are vigorous, rather than soothing. They use olive oil instead of body oil. If you are unlucky enough to get it massaged into your hair, you will have to shower a number of times to get rid of the oil smell. If you like having cooking oil vigourously massaged all over you, then go ahead.

Getting into Rome
The shop in the lobby sells a 100min ticket (1.50 Euro each), this is good for the bus journey to EUR Fermi and the metro for a single trip. The bus stop behind the hotel will go to the metro station (bus 705). On the Saturday we were told this runs until midnight. Getting back in the evening, we were waiting for around 30 mins for a bus to the hotel. Return trip time from the Colloseum Metro station was around 55mins.

The local Area.
The hotel is located in a rubbish place for tourists. If find yourself here, and don't fancy eating at the hotel. There are two options.
Out of the front entrace, take a right and walk up, there is a little kiosk on your right, they sell cheap biscuits and snacks, very friendly staff (not open on sundays)
Other option. Out of the hotel, take a left, down to the bottom and follow the road around. Go Right at the traffic lights past the petrol station, there is a brilliant little place called Bonnani. It is a little deli come cafe. awesome food.It is open from 5.30am til 9.30pm. There is man called Naeem, who speaks good English. We had to pizza's and two glasses of Rose wine. The staff also brought out a little pork meat pastry for us to try. The whole meal cost 16 Euro! There are locals in and out of this place all day long!.

In an nutshell, dont stay at the Mercure, especially if you are a tourist. If you find yourself stuck here, go to the area near Bonanni.

Room Tip: Suite 552 is nice, though watch out for lizzards in your bath tub! and dont expect your room to be c...

let me first of say that i am american, i know in most cases that is against me. my standards are only from hotels mostly in america but also including Australia, Hong Kong, japan, and mexico. first of let me say that the staff is very friendly. it kinda starts going down hill from here, the beds are like box springs, no padding, from the pictures it looks super flat... because it is, its amost like sleeping on the floor. the internet is a joke, every day you need to get a internet pass that last for 24 hours and only allows you to have 200mb download and a 256 bandwidth limit... its about as fast as dial up, and you have to pay 9 euro a day for that btw, not free. hopefully you come in the summer or the winter because if you come in the spring or fall they do not turn the ac on. so if its hot you sweat it out. if you open a window you hear traffic extremely loud (i am a sound sleeper, i slept through a nascar race in the fifth row) and makes it hard to sleep on your stiff bed with loud trucks going by at 1 am. the hotel will not exchange your money, and neither will the back next door. i did find some good restaurants from previous reviews but other then that i have been trying to leave this hotel since the first week here, ps you have to pay ahead and its non refundable. breakfast is around 16 euros for pathetic spread too.

Room Tip: best western is a little further away but if your here for business and you have to stay for a while...

... I chose the Hotel as per usual: for its swimming Pool and not in town, as I was on a very romantic getaway.... I would point out firstly the spa and the pool which were spotless. The pool was empty (just as i like it).

We have tried Hotel food, which was OK but definitely overpriced. We have worked out that you could probably get better food at a cafe, around 4 minutes walk from the Hotel (turn left from the hotel entrance then another Left). The pannini served at the cafe were simply outstanding. If you don't want to spend a fortune on the alcohol - you could buy at the same cafe, which is openned quite late and I believe runs an all night Alcohol shop!

Will i book this Hotel again? Probably, because the price paid was excellent. This hotel would be most suited for a Romantic Relaxing Hotel [stay] getaway.....
