“good quality for the price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2013

Close to Termini and the main subway and bus lines, and within walking distance of the Forum, this unassuming hotel on a 3rd floor which might go unnoticed as a hostel, has good, comfortable rooms, abundant breakfast, and a friendly, helpful staff. For the price (lower than similar options in the area, and much lower than other, more "desirable" parts of Rome), this is one of the best buys one can find in this wonderful but very expensive city. Keep in mind: this is not a 5 star hotel, but a humble, yet clean, convenient, appropriate, and not expensive place to come to sleep after a long day walking around the city visiting monuments.

The room was simple, small but adequate and I was glad it had a safe. The shower was a bit cramped but there was plenty of hot water. The room was kept very clean. The young men on the desk were courteous, cheerful and helpful. They also spoke excellent English.

The overriding advantage of the Marco Polo is its location. Being only three minutes walk from the Termini means that it is extremely easy to get from and to the airport, via bus or train (no taxi needed). Then the abundance of buses spreading from Termini across the city makes it equally easy to visit any part of it.

If you don't want the hotel's breakfast, you can find alternatives at the dozens of cafes and bars within a few minutes walk.

Bottom line: would I use the Marco Polo again? Yes, definitely.

I've been here during the Spring 2012 to see the Eternal City! Very very nice place, located close to the center, bus station and 10 minuts walking to the Colosseum and the most beautiful parts of the city. The Hotel is really nice and clean, everything is good, specially the breakfast... And the people working there are real gentleman.
I truly suggest it to all of you.

We were staying tree nights in this hotel, which suppose to be tree star hotel. The location was perfect but that was all. Rooms were quite okei but not very clean and the sight from windows was quit awful. And the breakfast was a joke! I have never got so poor breakfast in my life...

The outside of the hotel may be a little off putting however it is not an issue.
The hotel is on the 3rd floor with a tiny lift but taking the stairs is not a problem.
When we arrived at the hotel we were told our room is not ready so we had to wait for a hour for our room to be ready which was a little annoying.
The room was a little small but we got use to it eventually. We asked for a double bed but they has just stuck two single beds together.
The bathroom was spacious with a small shower but had plenty of hot water.
There was a tv, mini bar and a safe in the room which was helpful.
The maid came in everyday to clean the room and change the towels.
The staff were all friendly and helpful.
Location is perfect, walking distance to some of the attractions and the termini station just 2min walk from hotel.
The walls are very thin so you could hear people talking next door.
However good hotel and would recommend.

The Marco Polo Hotel is a nice small family run hotel but comfortable and clean. The staff was extremely helpful and courteous. The location is terrific. The main train terminal ( Termini Station) is just around the street as are tour bus boarding areas. The food and service were outstanding. I would definitely recommend this hotel and would stay there again on my next trip to Rome
