After reading several reviews on how good this hotel was, how it was a good business hotel, we booked it for our visit to a trade show. The reception was friendly and helpful, said that the metro was 5 minutes away...
Well, 5 minutes was more like 15 minutes--if you walked fast! It was very unpleasant to walk around a not-quite safe-looking neighbourhood at night with laptop and expensive equipment. We took a taxi after that.
The rooms were tidy and neat, however, the doors only closed with force, so half of the night we lay awake due to slamming of doors and yelling of (Italian) guests. Our safe did not close properly, only with extreme force. On our last night, there was some sort of outdoor Karaoke concert or concert, with extremely loud music and singing coming from outside, and it was impossible to sleep. After 8 hours on your feet at work, this is not what you want to greet you!
The shower head had clearly not been cleaned in forever, everything seemed a little run-down. On our first night we ate at the restaurant, where the food was cold and the prices high. Definitely not worth it!
There are several nice places in the area to eat, but best walk in company of someone.
Breakfast was sparse, and the coffee machine spat out some brown goo which tasted nothing like coffee. I asked for a cappuccino from the kitchen, but was informed that they could not make one because they were cleaning the machines. Right behind the waitress were the machines, and they were obviously not being cleaned. Other clients however, did receive cappuccinos or coffees. Perhaps we booked a wrong room rate. I would have paid for the coffee, but they didn't even give me the option.
The beds were comfortable, there was a TV in the room, free water as well, but the noise was too much to recover from a long day.
Perhaps if you want to save some $$$ and book something cheap, if you don't mind walking a little to the metro and can sleep in noise, then this hotel will be ok.
As a business hotel? No, Sir!

Dear Madam,
I would like to thank you for reviewing Oly Hotel but there are some points that I have to make clear:
- our hotel is at 600 metres from the San Paolo Basilica metro stop, the time it takes to reach us may vary a lot from person to person;
- we do our best to explain to our guests the best way to get there and we always provide a small map of the neighbourhood;
- the surroundings of our hotel are safe and quiet, we are between a Church and a Primary School, and San Paolo is a very popular place in Rome;
- I am extremely sorry about the noise that some other guest made but our reception is open all night long and maybe we could have helped if you had called us;
- I am extremely sorry about the shower head in your room but our staff could have changed it immediately if only you had informed us;
- our restaurant is very well known for its excellent food and both beef carpaccio and almond tuna are cold dishes, I am sorry that our staff didn't explain it to you when taking your order;
- the prices of our restaurant depend a lot upon the drinks you have;
- I am sorry about the problems we had last Sunday with the espresso machine but no one had cappuccino and the ones you saw came from the automatic machine, there was nothing wrong with your rate.

We are a business hotel, we do our best to please our guests and all our staff is looking forward to seeing you again here at Oly Hotel.

Yours sincerely,
Andrea Nicolai

I was in Rome only for a night during a business travel. This hotel should be a 4 stars hotel, but there are some troubles that need to consider the opportunity to revamp it. The room was a large and comfortable but furnishings and moquette come from an another time. The bathroom was not so clean (there was an hair in shower) even if it was globally acceptable. Breakfast room was nice, also with a good quality of meal. Hotel has a large parking, but position is far from a metro stop.

Found the hotel excellent, only stayed for one night with family but found the staff willing to help, they let us have access to a room for cleaning ourselves up and storing our cases before leaving for our flight home at no extra charge something you don't always encounter with some Italian hotels, all the staff I met were courteous and friendly, didn't use the gym (wrong time of the year) or the swimming pool, but the hotel was handy enough to get to, when you know the right metro station to use, a shuttle service to the metro would have been handy especially if you have luggage, but not necessary if you are reasonably fit, breakfast was fine for me with as much choice as you want, again better to ask the staff at the time if you have a problem (espresso available if you want it) area doesn't give the best impressions with the graffiti on some of the buildings but we encountered no problems whatsoever, free bottles of water in the room an added bonus, no trace of the strange smell mentioned in previous posts

We stayed overnight in this hotel to visit the sights in Rome. It took a bit to find as we were advised by metro staff to get off at Garbatella but my advice is to get off at Basilica S Paulo. Its a five to ten minute walk depending on your fitness to the hotel. After 40 degree heat walking into this air conditioned hotel was bliss. The staff speak English and are friendly and helpful. They enquired and booked a taxi for us to Ciampino and were able to keep our room well past the official room departure time. We didnt have time to check out the fitness room or swimming pool. The breakfast was a mix of cooked and continental and you could help yourself to as much as you wanted. The rooms again were air condition and very comfortable with lots of little extras like water in a fridge, complimentary slippers, and toiletries. In our corridor there were some vending machines with cold water, juice and alcoholic drinks and snacks. Also a hot drinks vending machine. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

This is a great place to stay if you are there for business at the university. The staff were very friendly and English was no problem at all. The breakfast/coffee could use some improvement and the non-smoking rooms need to spaced further from the smoking rooms so that they do not smell like smoke (though this may have only been an issue with my room). Other than these two issues, I would recommend the hotel. It is a great value for the price.
