Very nice hotel in very good place. It is in walking distance from the city center, bus terminal, Colosseum and others. Clean rooms, rather new restrooms. A bit noisy place, but this is Roma center. Stuff is very helpful and responsive in any time of day, even by emails. I booked other hotel, but there was a problem with booking, so they book a place for us here in hotel Grifo and it was very good choice

Room Tip: Keys are the same, so it is better not to leave anything valuable in the rooms.

Nice, small hotel with access to the roof terrace and perfect location in an authentic neighborhood in Rome.Close to many attractions and interesting shops and restaurants in the neighborhood. The room we stayed in, was clean and newly renovated. Breakfast simple but ok.The staff were the best ambassadors for the hotel, always in a good mood, friendly and extremely helpful. Next time we travel to Rome, we need not look for at hotel, because we´ve found it: hotel Grifo.

We recently stayed at the Hotel Grifo, Rome. While the location of the hotel is great, there are some things that could be improved. When we booked the room, it was described as a small double room, it really really means that, in order to look out the window we had to edge side ways past a little table and the view is only onto a small side street, the bathroom is absolutely tiny. The decor needs to be updated, as it is quite tired. The breakfast room although small is sufficient, but the breakfast itself is so bland. A toaster would be a big improvement. Overall the staff are friendly and helpful though and do help you with directions etc.

Central location. Walking-distance to all the important places to visit, also the Vatican. Helpful staff. Restaurant is too small, but the general impression is very good. We will recommend Hotel Grifo to friends.

Wonderful location in the heart of Rome's Monti district. Easy walking to the Colosseum, the Forum, the Pantheon, Piazza Navona.... Friendly, helpful staff made our stay especially pleasant. Well-maintained, comfortable hotel (there's even an elevator!); very good value for the quality. Spent six nights, and would definitely return.

Hotel is conveniently located close to the Colosseum and within easy walking distance of the Termini railway station. Staff were very helpful and gave us detailed map of the important areas to discover. Only downside was extensive internal improvements going on in hotel which is why I have given 4 star rating. A decent budget accommodation in a good area

Good central location, in good area. Walking distance to everything expect the Vatican. Good breakfast. Rooms bit small. Lots of restaurants around the area. Everything is about 10-20 minutes walk from here. Train station also not far.
