Hotel Sileo
Ranked #886 of 1,267 Hotels in Rome
Reviewed September 25, 2011

The hotel is perfect if you need to catch an early bus to the airport. The hotel is literally 5mins walk from Termini Station.
It is easy to reach the main attractions by foot (of course if you are willing to walk all day). There are a few places to eat around the hotel but I wouldn't recommend either one...
The couple that owns and runs the hotel are nice and cheerful all the time, but they hardly speak any English. It is good that I had installed GoogleTranslate on my phone - it is quite useful for a asking few questions ;).

The easiest way to find the hotel is to look for the MarcoPolo signs. The hotel is on the 4th floor of an old building which host a couple other hotels. The restaurant downstairs is noisy, especially if you room overlooks the internal part of the building.

Even though the hotel is rated as one star, it has all the amenities you would find in a 3* one: mini-fridge, safe, TV, AirCon, WiFi, hairdrier, double bed. The Bathroom was a little dodgy, but hey, at least it wasn't shared.

This hotel is very close to the Rome Terminal. It is located on the 4th Floor. It is run by the same family on the 3rd Floor - Marco Polo Hotel. The owner is very friendly and helpful. The room is small but the bed is comfortable and the AC works well. They charge 1 euro for the small bottle of water in the room, but you can buy the water at the supermarket in the Rome Terminal for .50 euro for a liter bottle of water. If you don't mind drinking fountain water like the locals, there's plenty of cold water fountains in Rome. Just recycle your bottle and refill it.

We stayed at Hotel Sileo for 4 nights. It was better than we had expected based on Tripadvisor reviews. Our room had a mini fridge which was very useful since we could store food we had bought at the grocery store. They also had WiFi access in the main lobby. The service was really great, the owners spoke very little English but it all worked out. If we returned to Rome, we would stay here again.

We learned too late that it is generally not a good idea to get a hotel near the combined Termini train and bus station. But we did fine. We found it handy, in fact, to be so close to the key buses as we needed them often because the major sights of Rome are widely spread out (it's not a pedestrian city, that's for sure). And there were some decent restaurants with homemade-style food at a reasonable price (and others better not mentioned) near our hotel.
The hotel was pretty basic. Cute lift to get there. Friendly owner, Alessandro, who speaks little English but somehow makes you feel very welcome — and teaches you repeatedly how to avoid getting pick-pocketed. While we were there, some repair or renovation was going on in another part of the building (the hotel takes up only one floor, and there are other hotels on other floors and other business tenants of various sorts) so it was a bit noisy at times — but we were out all day and there was no noise at night. Breakfast was the typically high-carb and no-protein kind found throughout Italian hotels.
The two homemade-cooking style restaurants across from each other on the corner are worth repeat visits. Other than that, there's not much to see or do in the area and you need a bus to get just about anywhere else.
We loved the Trastevere neighbourhood and if we're ever in Rome again would stay at a B&B or small inn there — but it would cost a lot more money than we spent at Hotel Sileo. When in Trastevere, make sure you check out La Botticella restaurant.

We stayed at the Hotel Sileo as the first stop on our honeymoon and were instantly impressed by the quality of the rooms. Our double room was incredibly nice and the proprietors very accommodating. The older couple that runs the place does not speak perfect English but they know enough to communicate if you need anything. The hotel is located in a larger, apartment-style building two blocks from the main Termini train station. It does have an elevator, however it is quite small (as they tend to be in Europe). Free WiFi is available and you are able to come and go as you please. This hotel was an excellent beginning to our month honeymoon in Europe! Note: The hotel only has a few rooms so advance reservations are essential. You can reserve through their website.

We stayed here for one night because of its convenience to the train terminal. The room was basic, small bathroom but clean enough and the couple running the hotel were pleasant to deal with. The bed and pillow however were very uncomfortable the sheets were too coarse and scratchy. I woke with bites all over my arms, neck and face. Strangely my husband sleeping next to me wasn't bitten. This place was cheap enough but I would have paid more for a better standard room.

The hotel is situated close to the main railway and bus station.
I was satisfied with accomodation, the room are not luxury, but they are very cosy with nice italian furniture in it. The owners are very nice couple, which are willing to help and answer all your questions.When I come to Rome again, I will definitely stay at this place.
Enjoy the Rome and Italian hospitality.
