Reviewed October 15, 2005

We were very pleased with the spacious room and bathroom, friendly staff and decent location. Our only complaint was a note saying that the credit card machine was broken so we had to take out several hundred euros in cash to pay - I would suggest that the owners simply state that it is a cash-only hotel to save everyone the frustration of expecting one thing and getting another. The value of this hotel far outweighs the small hassle of finding an ATM to pay the bill at the end of your stay, however. Recommended.

DH, DS (age 11) and I had an enjoyable 4 nt stay here. The previous reviews given here were pretty accurate. Location is convenient, large supermarket nearby, small fridge in the room. Rooms are very clean, large, w/ large bath. Breakfast is nice - coffee and toast, cookies. Altho website says credit cards accepted, staff discourage it and will charge extra if you insist. On the other hand, the staff were extremely helpful, will go out of their way for you. For example, they were willing to assist us w/ taxi to Fiumincino airport at 4:30AM on day of our departure. Value was excellent overall. I'd stay there again in future.

We stayed at Discover Roma for 6 nights in May 2005. We have mixed feelings about this hotel. Positives included reasonable room price, close proximity to train station and two supermarkets; large room and bathroom; overall cleanliness; friendly helpful staff (provided us with breakfast the night before when we had early starts, gave us directions and suggestions for sightseeing and rang tour company for us to confirm bookings) and fantasic restaurants outside hotel. Negatives for us included no internet (website said there was) hot room (I think you had to pay for Air conditioning), cigarette smell (coming from outside?), hairs on the bed sheets, grubby shower with very hard water pressure/ poor drainage which caused water to fill up to ankles, towels that had no absorption, unpleasant breakfast, and close proximity to dubious area around train station. We were also disappointed that after a six night stay the hotel owner would not let us leave our luggage in the room for a short period after the checkout time. They also were not keen to accept credit cards even though we were given the impression before we ariived that credit card would be fine- there was a sign suggesting that they did not have the facilities yet, however the credit card machine was clearly in view, they then proceeded to try and talk us out of using our credit card, and then when we did we were charged extra. If we were in Rome for a short stay and needed to be close to the train station we would probably stay there again otherwise we would look elsewhere.

We really enjoyed our 4 night stay at the Discover Roma Hotel. It was very quiet, safe, clean, and had excellent air conditioning. The staff was wonderful and very helpful.

It my most pleasant surprise when we entered the room, really a lot of space to move around and the bathroom fantastic esp after the tiny-barely-can-move around bathroom we had in venice(our previous stop)!
The staff were very friendly and suggested some possible routes to tour rome as much as possible and even go to the extend of using highlighter to draw out the routes on the map for us!

Although it near termini station, it located in quite a quiet street and we remembered one night coming back with the street lights spoiled so can be a bit scary.

My husband and I spent 4 nights in Rome at this hotel and were very pleased. The room was large, modern & clean. The hotel was run by a family, so we felt very comfortable staying there. They were also very pleasent and helpful in recommending places to see and methods of transportation. Breakfest is delivered to your room. The location was excellent in terms of being close to Termini Station as well as 2 metro statons. Approx. 25 min. walk to the Colloseum (nice walk after eating all that pasta!). Only disadvantage - no phone in the room.

We stayed two nights at Discover Roma. The hotel is on second floor but has a small lift when you are too tired for the lovely marble staircases. The room was spacious and had a bathroom with very updated fixtures. It was the best shower I had in Italy. The owner was so gracious and helpful--he gave us a map of Rome and great directions for a walking tour. We followed his advice and had a fabulous day walking around Rome. The price cannot be beat in a city where hotels can be very expensive. We were disembarking a cruise ship in Rome and other passengers were telling us they were paying $200-$500 for a hotel. My sister and I felt very happy to have found the Discover Roma. We had an early bus tour on our second day and the owner arose early to give us a continental breakfast of fresh cappachino and croissant. The hotel is very near the main train and bus terminal also.
