Reviewed May 9, 2011

If you are low maintenance and just need a clean place to stay this is your hotel. Located so far from city center our driver had to charge extra. Staff was a mixture of Super friendly and staff from hell.. Make sure you have Euro cash when checking out because they need the city tax paid in Euro cash and will get loud with you about it. I'm used to being friendly to my customers and being treated the same so this place was an eye opener for me. the restaurant staff was a little rude to some of our party. I live in Orlando and expext disney treatment but it took me a little while to realize ther was no Mickey here.

We received a friendly welcome and good tourist advice.The staff speak good english. Don't be deterred by outward appearance of the building housing the hotel. the interior is fine. Although the room was not overlange, it was confortable and well laid out. the internet service worked and the food. (we han breakfast and dinner).

We did not stay at this hotel and the review is based only from bad feelings from reservation process. We made a reservation direct from their websites as it is cheaper than e.g on booking.com and provided a credit card info. In few days we have obtained an email that our card is invalid (is valid for sure) and they asked for another card by unsecured e-mail. We send them another card info (by secured way) and again few days later they asked for another credit card info and additionally the price was higher than on reservation.
Why they ask for 3 credit card details? Moreover when we decided to pay cash on arrival? Reservation was cancelled. They have a lot of points to improve. Enjoy Rome

This hotel is located within walking distance from a conference center owned by the Italian Financial Police - Guardia di Finanza. (The location seems cleverly picked to keep the inmates from escaping.) The only reason for me to book this hotel was the proximity of the conference venue. The hotel was OK for the price in spite of numerous funny mistakes and omissions by the staff. (I wonder if they ever wonder why no cereal gets consumed in their breakfast bar - there is no milk available :-) ) To be honest I have been to worse motels and for the price it was OK.
The location is horrible - it takes an hour to go to Rome center via bus 135 which rides totally independent of it's schedule. The neighborhood is rather shabby with prostitutes regularly working outside. I did feel quite safe however.

Dear Guest,
Thank you for your review, it give us the possibility to answer you about some things.
The Hotel Romulus is located in an area not central (but it is clearly written on our website...) but as you say, it is easy to reach the city center by bus and metro in 30 minutes more or less. The fact that the bus runs totally independently from its schedule is fault of the traffic that, as you surely know, is a big problem in our city.
Next time you will want to be our guest we will glad to show you better our breakfast buffet: there are in fact two type of breakfast available in our hotel: the Continental one, that includes a sweet buffet with cakes, cereal and drinks like cappuccino, coffee and tea, and the American one which includes also a salted buffet with ham, cheese, eggs, bread and more...
We are glad that you felt quite safe nearby the hotel, and this is the most important thing: we are sorry like you for the prostitutes around there, but this problem is the same all over the city nearby every hotel, also in Via Veneto and in the entire city center. Our politic is to do the possible to safe the hotel from that practice, according to the police department.
Thanking You once again for having notified us your impressions.
Best Regards
Mrs. Francesca Stella

The rooms were very charm full and clean.
+ the room
+ the bathroom
+ comfortable
+ fridge in the room
+ free internet (in the lobby)
- the breakfast (not too many things to choose from but great croissants although)
- location (not the fact that it was 30 min away from the town center but the problem was that the bus was full of gypsies). Be careful in the bus.

I did not like this hotel......I was so disappointing and getting to Rome from the Hotel was a nightmare......I can't believe it has good reviews...with the same money you can find nice and better hotels near the metro stations......the bus take 30 mins to get to the metro station and there are many pick pockets in the bus.....be careful with this hotel.

Unfortunately we should research more about this hotel....there are much nicer and better hotels for the same price near Rome and the airport.....it was a nightmare....We had to take the bus to the hotel and wait for almost and hour until the bus got there...once in the bus you have to take the metro to go anywhere in Rome.......

Near the hotel there are many prostitutes standing under the bridge where your take the bus.....the staff in the hotel was kind of rude....the internet did not work like they promised.............the worst problem was the far away distance from Rome..as I mentioned before....there are much better hotels near Rome for the same price....

Rome is a nice place to see if you stay near the colosseum, the vatican or any of the areas near the metro.......there is not a metro stop near Hotel Romulus....
