“not worth the price”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2011

The hotel has huge price for rooms compared to services offered even though location is great and staff really kind and helpful.
Breakfast - low quality, rooms with thin walls (one could hear every wisper in the next room, you would get up in the morning whenever the staff started setting the breakfast room), TV set occasionally not functional (some cable problems I presumed), and the worse was that there was no hot water for three days out of five; with the canicular weather in Rome and our daily schedule (walks through the city all day long) you can imagine the confort when coming back to our room in the evening. One can accept these problems may arise anywhere the issue was that no action was taken for days in a row, which is unacceptable. Our vacation was ruined. Would never recommend this hotel nor will I trust booking.com

This is a small hotel. it has no lobby to rest, but locates in a perfect location in Roma.
the rooms are good with WC and shower included, airconditioned (but the A/C in our room didn't work well).

We booked a 4 night stay, but left after one night !
After recently traveling in the USA and all across Europe, we visited many hotels, but Migdal "Palace" was absolutely the worst one ever.

As my wife is pregnant, I pre-arranged for the hotel transportation taxi to pick us up from the airport, but the driver didn't show up (this made us waste approx. 3 hours while waiting in vain).
After taking the train and a taxi, we reached Migdal Palace, but didn't really get any apology for the incident. The man at the desk simply didn't care.

Unfurtunately, this was only the preview of our stay... We found out that the hotel actually looks more like a hospital or a monastery. It's not about "basic" (we like basic) - it's about "depressing"... Our room had NO telephone, no safe, no pictures on the wall, no shampoo, no air-condition remote control, no fridge or mini-bar... All it did have was an old bed, and a TV set. Simply a joke. Some of the light-bulbs in the room were burned out, it was really bad.

The room we got was right next to the front desk (one meter away), and facing the busy street... We didn't sleep at all during the night, as the traffic noise was very strong.

The people at the desk gave us a set of 4 keys (!), all of which are a must - there is the room key, there is the hotel floor key, and there are 2 keys for the front doors of the building. Come on... Very uncomfortable to say the least. One night was enough for us to decide we can't stay any longer.
Breakfast was dull, and during the morning hours, drilling noises started from an upper floor (as the hotel is located inside an apartment building).

We had no trouble finding a different two-star hotel, within five walking minutes away, in a price that was 25% less expensive. And guess what? Our new room had a phone, a safe, shampoo, etc. etc.

Bottom line - I wouldn't recomment this hotel at all. Shame on them.

We found that staying at the Migdal Palace put most of the tourism venues in easy walking distance. This included, among others, the Coloseum, Forum, Pantheon, Trevi Fountain, and the Vatican. You are also a few minutes from Piazza Navona.
The staff - especially Domenico - were all extremely helpful and knowledgeable. For Kashrut observers, especially, the morning kosher breakfast is a great convenience.
We stayed at the hotel during a few really hot days, but as all the rooms are fully air-conditioned 24 hours a day, that was not a problem.

we chose the hotel for the centrality and proximity to the great synagogue of rome. also one minute walk from piazza navona and 20 minutes to vatican city. kosher breakfast. clean rooms. aircondition which worked very well in 2 rooms out of 3. pleasant and helpful staff. we fully reccommend!

the hotel is actually about 13 rooms in a whole old fashion building. a reception, and breakfast room.
the location is great - 5-15 minutes from every interesting spot in rome. close to the old ghetto where are many kosher restaurants- if you eat kosher. breakfast simple but good and kosher.
the only problem was noise from the street.but we got used to it.
the room was big enough, new, and shower very big,clean, and new - better than even 5 star hotels in israel. there was a small leak from the shower- we asked in the mornning and when we came back it was already fixed. the girl in the reception also gave us good advice about restaurants in the neighborhood.
i reccomend - especially to people that want kosher food. and those who look for central place and nice clean room and polite staff members.
