Stayed twice at Isa, I'd rate it "Good" as it is definitely over "Average" (creatively decorated, clean and fairly spacey rooms, excellent location) but just as clearly below "Very Good" as the personnel sometimes appears on the rude side. The roof terrasse is a major plus.

Room Tip: Make sure you request a room on the 4th floor, as it seems to be the nicest.

My family and I stayed at Hotel Isa in Rome July 4th - 8th. This was a very clean, contemporary and friendly hotel. The view from the breakfast table was amazing. The location was near everything and a safe location.

If you want to walk out your hotel door to the disneyland beat of wall to wall tourists, don't stay here. You won't be steps from the Trevi Fountain, the Spanish Steps or the Vatican. You will be in a lovely neighborhood in Rome with good restaurants, (save one the hotel recomended)gelato bars, etc. There is a cab stand one short block from the hotel and for a few Euros you can get to those locations quickly and easily. The hotel is located between the vatican and the Spanish Steps. It has a nice decor, clean andprompt room service. We stayed in the quad which was large enough for a family of four. The only complaints were the auto lights in the middle of the night, the lack of ventillation in the bathroom, and the powdered juice at breakfast. Ask them not to douse your eggs in olive oil and they will oblige. A very good value as well.

I stayed three nights at the Isa Hotel and this was especially what I was looking for from my accommodation in Rome: good location in safe environment, clean room and good breakfast.

Arriving to the hotel from the Termini railway station is very easy by metro to the station Lepanto and then less than 10 min walk to the hotel. Also many bus lines go near from the hotel. The hotel is approx. 15 min walk from the Vatican. Also many other interesting places to see are within a walking distance on the other side of the river. There are a couple of snack bars and a pizzeria very nearby to the hotel. If looking for a fancier dinner restaurant outside the hotel, you'd need to walk approx. 15 min. The hotel's environment feels safe and quiet.

My room was quite tiny and on the third floor with a tiny balcony to the inner court. The bathroom had a bathtub which was really great after a hot day out at the town. The room was very clean and the air conditioning worked perfectly. I was lucky to have quite quiet neighbors as one could easily hear them speaking in the corridor or in their bathroom. There was a safety deposit box in the room available for use for a separate but very low fee.

The complimentary breakfast was great: plenty of choices and served at the roof terrace restaurant, which was open also in the evenings. I especially liked different type of cheeses and fresh fruit salad at the breakfast. The view from the terrace was nice extra.

The hotel offers wifi and it worked well in the room. There is also a computer for guests' use by the reception. If you needed to print something, send your documents to the hotel's address and they'll print them for you.

The staff of the hotel is very friendly and they all seemed to speak English.

We just returned from a family vacation in Italy and stayed at Hotel Isa in Rome on July 18th & 19th. We enjoyed this hotel! We had two rooms on the 5th floor for us & our two teenagers. The room set-up worked well for us and we enjoyed the breakfast on the upstairs balcony. Great location, close to the Vatican. The only disappointment for us was that the bar & restaurant was closed while we were there.

We stayed at Hotel Isa for three nights in July. The room was very comfortable, the staff was tremendously helpful and the location was fantastic. We especially loved the rooftop garden for breakfast! Amazing food, a great view of The Vatican and outstanding service. We will definitely be going back.
