Hotel Memphis

Reviewed February 12, 2013

We found the hotel perfect for exploring Rome , clean , friendly staff and it's with in easy reach of the metro . Basically only used the hotel for showering and sleeping as we were out at first light and back late at night ! All major attractions are close by and a map which is free from the hotel is a must . We would stay again .

Room Tip: A room with a queen bed appear to better .

Think of this hotel as a base. Somewhere you just want to go and get your head down between visiting beautiful sights. And for that its perfect. Rooms are clean, decoration is modern, staff are fantastic, it's comparatively cheap, breakfast is simple but good to start the day but as previously stated, the best thing about this hotel is its location. With a good pair of shoes you can walk to all the major sites in the city. We didn't get a metro the whole time we were there but when e did use it to get back to the airport, Barberini station is about 4 minutes away. It's not a luxury hotel with a spa! Gym and other fancy facilities, but then if you want to sit in a spa all day, maybe you're going to the wrong city.

I can just confirm the previous reviews. Location of the hotel is great: less than 5 min. from Barberini metro, less than 5 min. to Trevi Fountain, less than 10 min. to the main shopping street Via del Corso. Room was clean and with refurbished bathroom. Reception staff was friendly and helpful, nothing negative. But on the other hand, the range of offered services wasn't worth of four stars.

Room Tip: Rooms on top floor have terrace

This hotel was booked based on the reviews I read here at tripadvisor.

The location is decent, hidden in an alley, not far from Trevi Fountain. The hotel itself is more a 3 star than a 4 star hotel, it's a compact place to be. The room itself feels very small, bathroom is modern and nice, had a view overlooking an office. The bed was a big minus, queensize bed was two beds(really hard beds) put together. They were slipping away from each other from every movement.
The breakfast was simple but okay, they served scrambled eggs, cocktail sausages, fruits, yoghurt and some other stuff. Very small breakfast area, as everything else on the hotel.

It's a decent hotel, maybe not the hotel I would stay the next time I'm in Rome.

As stated before through previous reviews, the location is great and very close to the trevi fountain and shopping streets. Staff at reception is pleasant. Breakfast is quite ordinary. Room was with 2 single beds. Bathroom is modern but no bath - we were ok with having only a shower. Room was overlooking a street and it was not sound proof but it was not a problem during the night but at around 7 AM when card and motorbikes are passing by, it can disturb your sleep. It is not a busy street but the sound of a only one motorbike could wake you up. Room walls needed some repairs and a fresh coat of paint but it was not the end of the world. When i checked out, they had no room to keep the suitcases (we were coming back later to pick them out) had to be left in the main reception area without really good monitoring. Anyone could have come up and leave with them if reception was not attended or clerk busy on phone or with a customer. All these little details, for me, makes it a solid 3 stars hotel not 4 stars.

Room Tip: No room overlooking the street

We are just back from Rome, where we stayed at Hotel Memphis for 4 nights. It was a very pleasant break and the fact that the hotel was so well located it was like a bonus .Just 4 minutes away from Trevi Fountain, or other major monuments ( on walk ) the hotel seemed to be very well run, very clean, with comfortable bed and modern decorated. The room we had was small, but this was the best part because was very romantic, with a small terrace.
The staff was very helpful, especially the lady from reception. she was confirming all our appointment's with the tours guides any time we need it with no fuss what so ever. You could see all the years of experience in her job, she was very good and always with big smile on her face.
Breakfast was a buffet, not with a big variety, but good enough to keep you going till lunch time, if you think to a English breakfast...well is not the case!!!!
P.S. The coffee was not very good and it was coming from an automatic machine which was using instant coffee and not beans, but if you really want a good coffee ask the waiter.
If you want a place to eat, just beside the hotel it is a small Tratoria, called " Gioia Mia" with a very good food and full of history, about 130 years, decorated in old Italian style.
