Stayed at the hotel back in 2004 in my first ever trip to Rome, the hotel was just opened and back then it seemed and felt SUPERB, value for money, great location, uniqueness etc. Coming back however 9 years later, the hotel has become a best Western hotel and the whole feeling of uniqueness is totally gone! Service is far from being the best, the staff seemed to be bother with your questions, the room is nothing to die for and the shower is a total disaster! Water runs through floor and we are being forced to put towels upon towels to 'contain' the flood! Have reported it and all we got was a unfelt sorry!

Anyways, disappointed to say the least but even tough we have checked out already we have a confirmation to stay for 4 more nights so I guess will have to make the best of it! Wont come back though....

This hotel is clean, comfortable, serves a very good breakfast and is just plain FUN! The staff is very friendly and helpful. At the breakfast you know you are getting fresh squeezed orange juice, because you squeeze it yourself. The breakfast hostess is Johnny on the spot with your cappuccino or any other coffee you want. The rooms all have music themes, B&O stereo are standard. Our room had snare drums for end tables and a "Blue Velvet" comforter. The bath had a jacuzzi tub and a rotating disco ball! In Rome, you could spend a whole lot more and not get anything as nice or as fun as the Franklin hotel.

Room Tip: Go ahead and spring for the upgrade room with jacuzzi.

We stayed in this hotel for six nights and loved it. Rooms were a good size, bathrooms were clean (great water pressure in the showers) and the SKY TV was an added bonus. Staff was friendly (especially the wonderful lady in the breakfast room).
Great little restaurants in the area and metro station just a few minutes down the street. Would definitely stay there again if I ever return to Rome.

Franklin is in a lovely part of Rome, in Prati, amidst old-aristocracy mansions and picturesque trattorias. Coated in the magic of the place the hotel seems a bit outta place with its pseudo-hip style. The music theme of the hotel is a welcome note but the attire of the employees (piano ties- cringe!), the disco-ball in the bathroom and the poor selection of music leave a lot to be desired. The lady preparing the breakfast was super nice and made a mean espresso. Rooms rather small. Not a bad place, but not amazing either, and certainly not a boutique hotel.

Stayed at this hotel in mid October. The room was of decent size and the bathroom was pretty good. The disco ball inside of the bathroom was a great added touch to the decor of the room which is music themed.

The bed and pillows were comfy which is a major plus esp after traveling 8 hours.

The breakfast which was included in the rate was nothing to scream home about but I guess it served it's purpose.

The hotel is located approx 10 minutes from the Vatican which is great and the Metro is also in the area which makes reaching Rome's attractions a breeze.
