“Great Hotel!”
Reviewed March 10, 2012

We stayed here 4 nights Mar 4-8, 2012. We asked for a balcony room, but instead we got one of their larger rooms, which was just fine. We found the room to be very comfortable, cleaned every day. Linens and bath towels were excellent quality. The Staff was very, very helpful and gave us excellent dinner recommendations every night - all within a couple blocks. Metro right around the corner. Breakfast was beautiful: pastries, cereal and milk, yogurt, fresh fruit, juice, American coffee, expresso and cappichino. Nice spacious dining room. The elevator is small, but typical European lift - no problems. We enjoyed our stay immensely, and would stay there again. Thanks for a wonderful visit!

Room Tip: We were in room 329, nice and quiet. Slept with the window open.

It is a small hotel that is just renovated. Everything looks and feels new . Rooms look very pretty but they are small . Breakfast is great with excellent cappuccino ! Good value for money for 60-80 euros per night . Great location . The only thing that still needs renovation is the thin reception guy. A family owned hotel.

Our daughter was studying in Rome and living in the Prati section of the city not far from the Vatican. We were visiting for 12 days and wanted to find a hotel near her for part of that time. We booked Hotel Gerber because it was conveniently located just around the corner from her. We were pleasantly surprised with wonderfully helpful staff, spacious and immaculate rooms, terrific breakfast and a perfect location on a quiet side street. The hotel is one block from bus and metro stations that can take you anywhere in the city for one euro.

We did a few overnights in Venice and Florence, and Hotel Gerber accommodated us by storing our large luggage while we were checked out!

I can't say enough about how much staying at Hotel Gerber enhanced our first trip to Rome.

A lovely little hotel. Staff were very helpful and courteous, the breakfast was good and the rooms were very nice, clean and very adequate. The hotel is situated within easy walking distance of main attractions.

I was surprised to see any negative reviews. The Hotel Gerber is a top notch hotel with a great staff and location. We stayed there 8 nights from Dec. 26 to Jan. 2rd.

Check in was smooth and painless, and they had our room ready for us. We were on the top floor, with a balcony and access to a terrace with a table and 4 chairs.

To begin your day, a breakfast consisting of a couple different kinds of bread, croissants, fresh fruit, three different types of juice, ham, sausage, cheese, cereal, and other assorted items on the breakfast table. The person running the breakfast, seeing to our every need, was Romeo. He is a friendly, well spoken person who loves to serve. We looked forward to seeing him every morning.

Our room was cleaned daily and never felt dirty. There was ample space for the 4 of us, and beds were very comfortable. We were so busy, though, we never did check out the TV to any extent. It was turned on for 5 minutes one day. The staff always greeted us and acknowledged us, we felt like valued customers to them.

Location is great - a short 1.5 block walk to the metro got us to whereever we wanted to go. We would typically walk to where we were going, then take the metro back. Exploring Rome on foot is something I would recommend to anyone able to do this. It as a short 15-20 miute walk to St. Peter's, the Vatican, and other places of interested. Our longest walk consisted of an hour walk to the Colosseum, with detours to the Spanish steps and Trevi Fountain.

New Years eve we were suprised to see two small bottls of champagne in our room, with 4 wine glasses. It was very nice to be treated like this.

Our checkout, even though it was 3:00 AM, was smooth and effecient. They called a taxi to take us to the airport, and it picked us up in less than 5 minutes.

Peter runs a great, friendly hotel that has a wonderful staff, outstanding location, and everything you could ask for in a hotel. They will treat you right!

Room Tip: Make sure you have access to a terrace or balcony - it add space to your room.

Hotel Gerber is small and family owned/run. All the staff were very helpful and welcoming - even the window cleaner greeted us in perfect English. They don't, however, help with cases up the 5 or 6 steps from the lobby to the stairs and lift. Also, the lift is tiny so a couple with large cases must take the lift one at a time. The stairs are narrow and uneven, so not suitable for everyone. Rooms and bathrooms are clean and modern and the buffet breakfast was substantial. We stayed here twice and would certainly stay here again.
