Hotel Jonico
Ranked #768 of 1,267 Hotels in Rome
Reviewed November 14, 2012

While we would say the hotel is clean, and the staff are fairly helpful, for me the most important thing was the location, and that is the main thing that lets down this hotel. This hotel basically looks like it is in the middle of a trading estate.

If you are after a cheap hotel for a few days away, the hotel itself is OK. It is clean, the rooms are quite large, the breakfast is continental, and the staff are very willing to help and advise.

You only have a problem when you want to get to the centre of Rome. I paid a lot of money for a central location for a surprise birthday gift, but 9K from the centre is not central.

Just a little advise, the reception will give you the bus number, but you cannot pay the bus driver, you have to get your bus ticket from an ATAC machine, and if you walk to the main road, turn right and go under the bridge in front of you, walk onto the left hand side of the road, and about 100 yards you will come to a little terminal, you will find the ATAC machine there. If you are caught without a ticket, there is a fine, so be careful.

The bus was always very very busy, and you will normally be standing for the 45 - 50 minutes to get the the Termini in the centre.

We felt a little uncomfortable walking back to the hotel at night, as I said above, is basically a trading estate, and walking through it at night wasn't the most comfortable experience, but it was only about 100 yards from the main road to the hotel, so was OK with a little care.

I didn't really know how to rate the hotel, and my 2 out of 5 is only because to the location, if the most important thing to you is the hotel and the room being clean and tidy, you would have to give it a slightly higher rating, but location is the main factor for me, which is why it only got a 2.

I spent a few nights in this hotel on my tour around the Italy, and I have to say that I was absolutely satisfied and pleasantly surprised.

Hotel staff was always nice, fluently english speaking and helpful about everything what I asked them (hints about the transport, prices, sightseeing, recommended restaurants/bars etc.). The same hotel manager - helpful and friendly person.

Rooms were cleaned daily and properly. Clean towels everyday was commonplace.
Equipment of the rooms was absolutely corresponding to 3* hotel. You can also choose of smoking or non-smoking rooms. Rooms were spacious and I felt comfortable in there.

The weakest points of this hotel is location. Hotel is on the outskirts, however tram and bus stop are 5 minutes of walking. In city center you are in 40 minutes by public transport, or in 10 minutes by car (if you are not driving in rush hour). Parking at the hotel area is free.
Anyway in 2013 there will be a metro station next to the hotel, so the traveling will be much faster by public transport.

You can connect to wifi almost everywhere in the hotel area. Breakfast could be little more varied, however you found there enough of typical things for cold buffet breakfast.

In the result I can recommend this property to everybody who is looking for cheap accommodation who don't mind that won't be staying at the city center.

Located in an industrial area and extremely inconvenient to travel to Rome centre. All 3 reception staff unhelpul and do not appear to have any customer service skills whatsoever. No eating facilities other than machine coffee and sticky cakes each morning. Room basic but clean, but would not recommend this hoteln due to the bad location if nothing else.

Room Tip: The staff will tell you to take bus, but it is quicker to take tram (approx 40min). Last tram aroun...

Dear Kim, sorry if we are not inside the historical centre of the city and luckily we have two opportunities to reach the Termini Train Station area by public trasportation: the bus 105 (n18) 24hrs or the tram Roma/Giardinetti line. We are sorry if our breakfast did not meet your expectations although completely renovated it's based on two kinds of cereals, fresh croissants, ham and cheese slices with bread, butter, marmalade and toast bread. We'll provide to increase our improvements.

Close to both Rome airports
Close to GRA Rome's ringroad
Decent rooms and good service and breakfast.
Take care of the traffic jam, always present in Rome.
Free parking a plus for someone moving by car.
Proximity to bus (#105) and train stops.
Good value for money.

jonico is a good hotel clean, and quiet, with spacious rooms and bathroom clean

the breakfast is average, italian cappuccino, coffee, milk , tea, juice;

the negatf point is that the hotel is far from the city center, you can take a bus N105, or the Tram, it take 20 to 40mn to arrive to the center,

is a good hotel just for small budget.

We booked through easyjet and was a bargain however when we got there .... Eventually there were broken paving stones so much so my partner fell over! The appearance was unappealing and the guy behind reception was arrogant rude and very unhelpful. When asking for directions to get to Rome he shoved a map in my face and that was it! The room smelt like cigarettes and the decor was old and very dated the bath was stained and there was mild on the celling. The noise was awful with traffic bellowing past from the main highway. The view was of a multi-storey car park. We checked out the following morning and checked in to a wonderful hotel in the centre of Rome. It's a bargain but don't ruin ur holiday!!!!
