The staff is amazing. Free breakfast in the morning personally served to you and they couldn't be more friendly. They explained in depth the best way to see Rome and made my trip remarkably smooth. It's located in a quiet neighborhood in Rome removed from the touristy center, but I particularly enjoy that as it made me walk through residential areas to get to the tourist bits, showing off more of the real Rome. There is a fantastic restaurant around the corner that the staff can point you to with English-speaking waiters who might have even got a little tired of me eating there so often during my 5 day stay. Located near lots of public transit if you choose to use it, I preferred to walk for the exercise and the site-seeing. I'd go back in a heartbeat.

Hotel lodi is a small hotel located in a quite area in Rome.The rooms are basic,but enough for a city stay.The best part of the hotel is the hospitality.good english speaking Staff were always helpfull,warm and frendly.You can ask everything to Alim about city,transportation or something you need.Although he give you a free map and do all explanation about city.Dont worry about nightlife in this area are great bars,espesially one of them(circolo degli artisty) is full with locals and is a great venue with large garden and restaurant.This hotel is pretty enough for budget stay,especially for youngers.

We were looking for a 3 star hotel with budget in mind and booked here based on the glowing reviews but were utterly disappointed. Ours was a triple room with attached bath. There was no dearth of hospitality and it pains me to give 2 stars when you have such a welcoming and helpful host in Ali. Ali immensely helped us with directions to nearby restaurants, supermarkets and pharmacies and with itinerary planning but I cannot write anything nice about the facility.

Make no mistake - this is a hostel and not a hotel of a B&B type! Rooms have a tired look. There is no aircon - we didn't need one fortunately. Plug points are sparse and hidden behind shelves etc. You could either operate the 16" screen TV or the fan as there was only one power source. The room was so cramped that we had to use the child's bed to stove our luggage. There are no paid laundry facilities. There are no lifts either. I could barely manage to move inside the shower, the piping was leaking and water was on the floor. The windows are a century old and do not shut - we had some mosquitos too. The breakfast was apalling - we just had the tea; croissants gave a stale feeling (no butter or jam provided). Apart from tea, there was an awful juice and that was all! I was asking myself if 220Euros for two nights was too small a sum for a broken property in a desolate location.

The nearest metro San Giovanni is a 25 minute walk on footpaths that are full of excreta and smell of urine - this is the same story if you walk in any direction within a 1-km radius centred around the hotel. The buses towards the metro are infrequent and can't be spotted on a Sunday. I feel sorry for Ali to write this review beacause there is potential for this place to strike big with such good staff. May be most of the people coming here do not spend enough time in the rooms - unfortunately for us, our daughter fell ill and we were confined indoors for two days and could only feel happy checking out!

Hotel Lodi was the starting point of our tour of Italy and having chosen all of our accommodation through 'hostelworld' we didn't really know what to expect. We definitely made a good choice (thankfully, as we were to return at the end of our tour before flying home)! The hotel was excellent - rooms are basic but well furnished and decorated, beds were comfortable and the en-suites, although dated, were perfectly functional.

Breakfast was excellent - a choice of hot drinks freshly made by the staff and delivered to the table with delicious fruit juice and a selection of croissants/pastries (2 per person). Breakfast could be eaten outside in the beautiful garden or in the common room, which contains a couple of computers and small selection of books.

Staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, giving an in-depth but speedy explanation of the city using their free city maps, phoning for taxis, advising on booking Rome's many attractions and and making our breakfast early so we could catch out flight home. A small kitchen can be used to make quick snacks and small meals (sink, fridge, microwave, electric ring for pans, plates/cutlery/glasses etc).

As the hotel is located out of the city, it is a 5 minute walk to/from bus stops giving easy and cheap access to the rest of the city via bus/metro (in Rome 1,50€ gives 100 minutes of continuous travel on any combination of bus/metro/tram - more than enough to reach the furthest areas of the city centre).

We felt the hotel/hostel provided very good value and would definitely visit again.

Room Tip: Rooms 2 & 6 are nearly identical, containing a double and two single beds, with an en-suite show...

this is a family run charming homely hotel a little away from centre of Rome but very accessible.we traveled to other places in Italy but the breakfast is the best at Lodi-the croissants are amazing-filled with chocolate and cream -heavenly ! More than friendly and helpful -Ali we enjoyed your company and chat.Even Gabrialdi (hope i got that right) who checked us in.Oh check-in and out is a breeze.Taxi-in 3minutes flat.Wi-fi with the PCs for people to use.
Rooms have all that a tired (Rome makes for a hectic sight-seeing) traveller needs.Hot water, towels, nice beds,quiet-slept like a log.
They were sweet to send me tea in the room one night when we were very tired.Will never forget it.Thanks...
Around there are many nice eating places -dont miss eating at via osteriana-2good places.
Metro is the best way to travel.

Room Tip: Ours on first floor from which you can see the breakfast garden is good !

We booked Hotel Lodi after reading all the other reviews on here, and most of them are spot on. The hotel is a bit out of town, and is definitely more a hostel than hotel but to be honest that is part of the charm - the area nearby is great for nightlife and food, and it is not far to the nearest Metro. Head into town on the bus, Metro or by foot for the sights and then escape back to the hotel to sit and relax in the garden. The staff are great - Ali made us feel very welcome, and helped us with great advice about how to plan our trip. Can't recommend the place enough!

stayed from 16th to 20th june

hotel lodi.....where can i start?? it is a lovely hotel with a nice homely touch to it. its small, pretty and beautiful.
located a little away from central sights like pantheon, but is very close to san giovanni metro station (10 min walk) which gives u access to many tourist attractions. colosseum is also a 25 min walk on lovely streets of rome. its located in a local area amongst residential buildings, giving u a nice quite atmosphere and piece of mind. many pizzerias and restaurants nearby, supermarkets also.
when we arrived, Gabrielle and Ali were more than helpful in orienting us. they were very sweet and caring, gave us all information and service and are very approachable.

the hotel serves one of the best croissants i had during my trip in italy for breakfast in a lovely garden behind the hotel. the hotel not only provides free wi-fi but also computers! (dont have to fiddle with the small screen of the phone)

the room is small but cozy, with a view of the garden, and is kept very very neat and tidy. we got a good nights sleep after tiresome days in rome and vatican as the weather is very cool and the area is silent at night, without any disturbances.

all this for a really good price.
The Best Budget Hotel in Rome, more than value for money.
excellent stay, amazing experience.
