“Great for people on a budget with low expectations.”
Reviewed July 7, 2012

I recently stayed at the Clarin with two friends. We paid about $100/night. When we first arrived we were slightly worried that we had made a mistake but we got used to it after a few days. The man at the desk was very nice but he did not speak any English and he gave us the keys to another person's room. It was extremely hot and there was no a/c. The first night was extremely uncomfortable as it over 90 degrees in our room. Luckily, we requested a fan the next day but it would have been nice if we didn't have to ask. The free breakfast was very nice to have and saved us probably over 50€. The location was great, close to two train stations and a lot of popular tourist sites. The staff was very friendly and they let us keep our bags there for a few hours after we checked out as out flight wasn't until later in the afternoon. There is a great lunch place across the street that is very cheap and has large portions. They're only open from 10 to 1230 though.

The hostal was quiet poor. and the room very noise. The shower was rusty. This is what you get for a low price hotel. However, the staff was really friendly and helpfull. They speak just Italian and a little bite of English. When we arrieved the two beds were togheter and whe asked them if it was possible to separete them as I was traveling with a friend. the manager said " No problema" and they did it. The toilet got blocked and they fixed it that same evening. the shower was linking.
The breakfast was ok. They highly recommend us a restaurant " El Barroco Pizzeria Bar" which was a terrible restaurant. They must get a comission every time a customer goes there. Please dont ever go to that restaurant.
The best part of the stay was the staff.

We requested 3 nights at the Clarin but since there wasn't availability for all 3 nights, Rinaldo, the manager set us up in the Jolie B&B downstairs for the first 2 nights so we only stayed one night at the Clarin.
Pros: location (5 minute walk to Termini Station and many attractions such as the Colosseum, Trevi Fountain and Spanish Steps), amazing and helpful staff, breakfast included
Cons: We couldn't find any outlets so we had to charge electronics in the bathroom. Also wifi is an additional 5 euro per device
Great location off of Via Nazionale and really great staff who work so hard. I never saw Mohammed leave and there is someone at the desk 24 hours a day. I would definitely recommend.

It was OK, exactly what we expected from the price.
Location was a bonus, since it's close to the train and buses.
No need for more then that if you spend all your time outside and come to the hotel for a few hours of sleep at night.
The staff was super nice and helpful.

I stayed in this hotel in Rome when i went on the school trip, and they were so helpful to me, Ronaldo and Mohumed assisted me and they were the nicest hotel manager/worker that I encounted on my stay in Italy. The hotel itself is clean and has beautiful views in a great street next to the main strip with lots of little cafe`s and resturants around. I recommend this hotel for anyone going to Rome!

The hotel was close to termini station but was a decent walk from the main attractions.

Pros: clean rooms, breakfast included, good price for Rome with private ensuite, and friendly staff.

Cons: very small room and bathroom, no a/c, no hot water at night, lack of water during some periods of the day, no safe, and very outdated.
