“Good position and good service”
Reviewed August 18, 2012 via mobile

Even though the Hotel is under renovation ( and at the entrance you might be scared by the walls ), its location is excellent, and the rooms nice and clean. Breakfast is really good, with a lot of variety. The hotel staff is friendly and kind! I absolutely reccomend it for a pleasure or busissness trip in Rome!

This hotel was recommended by friends and we were happy they did so. It was comfortable, very clean, and conveniently located. The breakfast was ample and they were willing to pack a to-go lunch if desired. First, note that the office is next door so go there first to check in. Since arrivals from the States are usually early in the day, your room probably will not be ready. The staff were very accommodating in storing our luggage until the room was ready. When we returned later, our bags were already placed in our room. It was quite warm in the room but I could not get the AC to work. The desk informed me that it was only May which is "not air conditioner season". We opened the large windows and found that the temperature became very pleasant. The open windows provided a pleasant hum of a big city coming to life in the morning. Will absolutely recommend this hotel and would stay again.

The staff is extremely friendly. The location is very good, next to a metro station and a close walk to many places. I stayed there in my own room but I was with my friends who had just gotten engaged that week. I simply mentioned this in the booking notes and my friends were upgraded to this really nice room and it helped the overall experience. Back to the staff, while most of them were friendly, there were two of them who were exceptional. I don't remember the first guys name but he is tall and extremely friendly, helpful, informative, etc. A stand-up guy. The second is a very polite, young, (and pretty?) lady named Frederica who is actually really fun to talk to and extremely accommodating. Note, that this is a reasonably priced hotel and fancy things like elevators aren't reliable. The stairways is under renovation, although I'm sure it will look nice when it is complete. Either way, for the price you are paying for this location and quality of service, it is highly recommended.

Room Tip: Get engaged to your significant other the day before arriving - it apparently helps to get an upgrad...

Great location, great room...very accommodating...only problem was the stairs and the elevators...being on the 4t floor was tough...the stairs were being repaired and the scaffolding was hard to get around. Other than that it was a pretty nice place for the price for sure

We selected this hotel from a recommendation by Rick Steves-Rome guide. On arrival, the hotel looked just like the pictures. The room was large and clean. The bed was a bit hard but from the other reviews, we were expecting that. We stayed 3 days here and found the bed to become more comfortable as each night passed due to sightseeing exhaustion. We joked with each other that if people are complaining about the bed, they are not seeing enough of Rome because by the last night, we found the bed to be really comfortable. The breakfast food selection was bountiful and filled our tummies nicely. We found the location to be great because it was close to two Metro stations & the train station. Lastly, the hotel staff was very friendly and helpful with all of our questions. (And we had many, as this was our first time to Italy.) They gave nice restaurant recommendations that were spot on. They made us feel like Hotel Selene was home away from home.

We stayed here in late June 2012. The hotel was nice. It's best feature was its location. Just 5 minute walk to the main hop-on hop-off bus stops and the main train station. Several good restaurants nearby as well. It wasn't too far of a walk to some of the other tourist sites but I recommend the bus as best transport.

The room is small but not surprising for Europe. The bathroom wasa very nice size. We had a broken shower head which they fixed right away. Our friends had the game room which had a bigger TV and an Xbox so that was a neat feature for someone traveling with kids. The breakfast was a few steps above continental but not a full breakfast. It was very tasty and well kept.

I would recommend this hotel for anyone on a budget!

Spent two nights in Hotel Selene in June 2012. Looking for convenience, room for four adults,clean, breakfast and air conditioning. Selene made the grade. Only there to sleep and it satisfied in all respects. Can walk to train station and to all areas of Rome. Kept bags on last day. Breakfast was basic but good.

Room Tip: If looking for room for four at reasonable price.

Dear sae,

thank you very much for your kind feedback. We appreciate your candid opinion about Selene and we are very glad to know that you have spent a good time with us.
Family rooms for four are one of our best feature, since few hotels in city-centre are able to provide this room type.
Thanks again for your choice.

Very best,
