Just returned from a 2 week visit to Europe and a 3 day stay at the Nardizzi in Rome. We are budget travelers and don't have super high expectations for hotels but this was still a disappointment.
As many people have commented the hotel is near the Termini train station and the Republicca metro stop which is convenient. Those were the only positives in terms of location in my opinion however. It was a pretty boring neighborhood with only a few bar/cafe/restaurant choices. Next time I would prefer to stay in a more vibrant neighborhood and take a cab (friendly and inexpensive in Rome) if needed to and from the station or airport.
Price and rooms: I was surprised to see what some people say they paid at the Nardizzi. 59 Euros for a huge room and big bath??? Not our experience. We paid somewhere around $140 for a double room. We were on the third floor (down a level from the main floor.) Our window looked out on a very depressing abandoned building. I am not picky about beds and mattresses, but our beds were essentially cots. They scooted around and scraped on the floor every time we turned over. As some one else mentioned, the door knob came off in our hand. The toilet ran all of the time and flushed erratically. Reported this to the front desk but it wasn't fixed. Some of the lights didn't work. Thankfully, no bad smell from the bathroom as many others have commented and no lack of hot water. The exact opposite in fact. Two of the people traveling with us were scalded by the extremely hot and forceful water. No complaints about cleanliness however.
The air conditioner worked fine but you have to use a remote and there wasn't one in our room. We borrowed one from our friend.
Breakfast: This was the last stop on our European trip and by far the most disappointing breakfast. It is much better just to pop into a neighborhood bar and pay 2 or 3 Euros for delicious cappuccino and a fresh pastry. As others have mentioned, no fruit or protein options. While the automated espresso machine was kind of fun and interesting (a little stirrer drops into your cup before the milk and coffee) the coffee itself was of poor quality.
I would definitely not return to the Hotel Nardizzi when visiting Rome again. I think that there are better options in terms of cost and location.
