“Central travel hub”
Reviewed December 23, 2013

Before going to Italy, we decided to spend a day in Florence, we were staying at Hiberia Hotel in Rome. I searched for reasonable train fares and picked between Tiburtina station and Termini station, I found good rates with Freciarossa and Freciargento by Trenitalia online, we picked second class, which was comfortable, they also had convenient online ticketing. This was the same price as the one coming from Tiburtina station. good choice, we passed through Tiburtina and it appeared to be in a questionable area, especially if the departure is early in the morning, it's a little scary and had lots of graffiti. I highly suggest using Termini, just be aware of thieves, but all of the train stations in Europe have them, so I suggest using a belt bag with zipper facing in underneath clothing, and of course empty pockets. Also, arrive early so you have time to search for the proper personnel to ask for directionsnor questions. I suggest asking the workers or the booth of the specific train company you are using.

“Be careful! Don't take advice from tourist desk!”
Reviewed December 19, 2013 via mobile

After traveling through dozens of train stations in Europe, Rome was BY FAR the worst! We loved the tourist desks in Switzerland and France, and so with optimistic minds we stopped at the Rome desk. Learn from us, DONT stop there. They told us they could only print us out hotel names, rather than book one (which we were able to do at every other desk we stopped at.) Then they told us to talk to the "guys" who were drunk men in street clothes trying to scam tourist. It was sad situation all around. They kept telling us that they would "walk" us to our hotel, they wouldn't leave us alone after we told them several times we weren't interested. The worst part was that they were working with the train station employees. After dealing with that, we jumped on a train and watched a gang of 14 year old boys pickpocket several people. Thankfully we were prepared for this and had empty pockets. I love the beauty of Rome, it's terrible the station is like this.

“Beware of pick-pockets!!”
Reviewed December 16, 2013

We were getting on a subway during rush hour at Termini Station. A 'well-dressed' man tried to pick my pocket on the train. He deliberately stood at the door facing out, so I had no choice but walked into him. He tried to steal my cell phone/camera. Have to be alert all the time in crowded area in Rome, Expect the unexpected.

“Great location”
Reviewed December 13, 2013

Great location - walking distance from several hotels and bus terminals. Most tourist buses start from near here.

Huge station but few markers to indicate where things were.

Since we had lots of luggage and the hotel storage did not have enough space for us to store our baggage after check-out and train departure time, we wanted to use the lockers available at the station. However, they were ridiculously expensive and if we had any other choice, we definitely would have not taken them.

“Poor instructions”
Reviewed December 12, 2013

We were walking up and down, back and forth just to find someone to tell us where are the buses. Information is outside in a little booth. I would have never guessed that for such a large train station there is only a one tiny info booth outside! It was a very hard and frustrating to find anything in this station.
But at least on the positive side, the station was kept clean unlike some other train stations around the world.
