Stayed in a family room sleeping 4 during recent visit to Rome with the family. In busy street near the Coliseum but room was nevertheless quiet. Room was big enough for the four of us, bathroom a little on the small side but adequate for our needs. Continental breakfast was included in our deal which was a bonus. If you're looking for a reasonable deal for a family in Central Rome which in our case was somewhere to lay our heads and grab a shower, you won't go wrong here. All major sights are walkable and very handy for the metro.

I have stayed at this hotel Three times both With collegues and friends. The staff is very pleasant, the rooms are good and the breakfast ok. But the best With this hotel is the location nearby to Colloseum and Forum. It is a very good startpoint for traveling around With buses, metro and just for walking around in the citycenter.

We booked direct with the Hotel and stayed for a full week. We found it to be a great location for walking around the City. It is very close to the Forum and Colusseum. The staff are very friendly and service levels were good. The room was good. Good size electronic safe in wardrobe but loose and not secured to a wall. The bathroom was satisfactory excepting for a broken shower bracket which did not cause any difficulty. The breakfast room only accommodates 16 persons but we only had a small delay one morning and found the cold continental breakfasts to be good. We would not hesitate to stay here again.

Room Tip: Pay a little extra for a 'Superior Room'.

I would recommend the Hotel Solis to any tourist wanting a good hotel near to the sights. This was a trip to celebrate my wife's birthday and the hotel staff could not do enough for us and thank you so much Diego for the upgrade, all the staff were very attentive and informative. The hotel is a good 3* standard rooms with air con & kept clean. Each room has european plug points (so take an adapter), a TV with in english - CNN / BBC world news / music channels. Solis provided a continental style breakfast ie.Cereal, juice, coffee ham, cheese, eggs, toast and selection of jam / honey etc there was a nice lady serving great coffee and although a small breakfast area there was a relaxing atmosphere. The Solis is a 15 min walk from the Roma termini and a 5 min walk to the Coliseum Metro station, tourist information centre & Vittorio Palace / museo. We are no spring chickens & we managed to walk to all the main sites incl. Coliseum, Forum, Circo Missimo, Trevi, Spanish steps - You will do enough walking so a good central location is essential !!! If we return to Rome we would definitely return to the Solis.

Room Tip: odd number rooms are away from the main road and have a small balcony

My husband and I stayed at the hotel solis for 4 nights mid September.

We stayed in room 105 right next to the stairs, which put me off at first, but we rarely heard people passing. It's a small room, but nothing too dissimilar to any other budget central city hotel.

The room was clean with a balcony looking onto the central courtyard. On the other side of the courtyard were some private flats. It's surreal seeing people go about normal daily life while your on holiday.

The bathroom was an ok size, but the shower was tiny, being spoilt at home we really noticed the difference with a small shower here.

The bed and pillow were very hard and we looked forward to our own bed at the end of the trip. We were only provided with one pillow each, but were soon brought some more up when we asked at reception.

The room had a very tall wardrobe and safe, however it wasn't secured to the wall, so defeated the point slightly. There was a small window in the room which didn't have a curtain. However as the sun didn't quiet reach inside the courtyard in the early mornings it didn't wake me up. There were only 2 English channels (CNN and bbc) which was frustrating as I like to have something on whilst getting ready etc...

Breakfast was ok, pretty standard (not sure why so many reviews rant and rave over it?!?) with rolls, some pastries and cereal. The ham was vile (processed) and cheese pretty flavourless. The breakfast room is small, however if guests left once they've finished, rather than stay and plan their day it would make the hostess life a bit easier. The toilet by the breakfast room didn't lock properly however it was easier for us to pop back to our room.

The receptionist were helpful with our questions and provided a good map.

Overall a good hotel for the price you pay.

We could not have picked a better hotel location - just round the corner from the colloseum and Piazza Venezia. As this is a three star hotel we was not expecting much however this hotel exceeded our expectations. Our room was on the large side very clean, bed comfy and quiet.Our air conditioning worked and was used throughout our stay.The breakfast was as expected continental buffet cheese, egg ham bread cereal pastries etccc. The hotel had a proper rustic italian charm and the staff were friendly and helpful.We would definately return and recommend this hotel

Room Tip: room 109 was quiet and on the large side !
