“A definite YES”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

From the moment we arrived for our visit in January 2013, the Yes Hotel made us feel at home and very welcome. The reception staff were always helpful and never made you feel that you were interrupting them and keeping them from something more important - we've all, I'm sure, been to too many of those establishments! Although a little on the small side, the rooms were immaculately kept and of a good standard, with a shower room that included a bidet - my partner found this a godsend for soaking her aching feet after a long day’s walking!!
The breakfast was good: all the usual continental fare, plus hot scrambled egg, bacon and frankfurters, with a machine that dispensed a variety of reasonable coffees: excellent!
In terms of location, this hotel couldn’t have been better: no more than a short five-minute walk from the side entrance to Termini station, where the airport shuttle bus dropped us off (book tickets online before you travel and pay 8€ return, rather than 11€ if you buy on the spot).
If you feel up to the challenge, we would recommend doing what we did: base yourself at the Yes Hotel and explore the city on foot – you’ll be amazed at how many architectural treasures you come across along the way (we were particularly impressed by the immense and imposing bulk of the Palazzo di Giustizia, overlooking the river).
We only roughly planned our route on the map and made a leisurely start from the hotel around 10.30am each morning, but still visited most of the major sights on foot in two and a half days – for a couple in our mid-fifties, we were very impressed with our staying-power!!
Day One included the Vatican Museum and Sistene Chapel (14€ for a combined ticket), strolling via the Spanish Steps, Quattro Fontane, Piazza di Popolo, then along the banks of the Tiber, past the Palazzo Di Giustizia.
Day Two saw us at the Trevi Fountain, the Pantheon, Piazza Navona, the Altare della Patria (war memorial) and the Colesseum.
We paid 12€ for a combined ticket which included the Colesseum and the Roman ruins nearby- we saved the ruins of the Forum and Palatine Hill for our final morning on Day Three.
It’s worth mentioning that when we visited, in mid-January, Rome was not particularly overcrowded, though as you might expect, St Peter’s Basilica had quite a long queue, so we decided to give it a miss this time.
We would also recommend The Yellow, a couple of streets away from Yes Hotel, opposite Mama Angela’s in via Palestro. It’s a lively diner/bar (with a hostel upstairs) frequented largely by student-types and young travellers – but we didn’t feel out of place in any way. The music was great, the atmosphere was lively and a couple of tasty burgers plus a pitcher of beer were good value at 23€.
All in all, our experience of the Yes Hotel and Rome itself was one we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.

Yes Hotel is a lovely place in a great spot next to the main terminal of Rome! From there you can catch a train or a bus to everywhere really. The staff is always helpful and friendly. Rooms are contemporary, simple and clean. No bells and whistles. Great value for money. Definitely a YES!

I reached Rome late at night, it was about 10 pm by the time I reached Yes Hotel. I had stayed there once before and was very satisfied with the hotel.

However, this occasion completely turned around whatever good I thought about the hotel. Upon reaching, I was told that the room reserved for me did not have electricity! (I am pretty sure they had overbooked!) And they transferred me to another hotel of theirs two blocks away. I did not quite mind the new hotel, but it was not what I had reserved. I was aware of many better hotels at a cheaper price around Yes Hotel but it was a big mistake to have reserved this property, I shall be more careful in the future and I must warn all travelers reserving this hotel during peak season to beware of the fact that there is a chance you could be bumped off!!

On behalf of all the staff at Yes Hotel Rome we want to apologize for what happened to your reservation. We are very much sorry that visiting us back again after your stay in our hotel before , this unfortunate situation took place.

We consider very important to stress that the reason why we have transferred your booking is exactly what we have expressed: an electrical problem that unfortunately it was not possible to solve in time. Because of this, we offered an alternative and for us consoling to know that the other hotel was satisfactory for you.

Thanks for your understanding and for having chosen Yes Hotel Rome.

Warm Regards

Both Trip Advisor members and Frommer's (or Fodor's) recommend this hotel and I see why. Clean, modern, not expensive for Rome and great location to Termini. I have stayed at another hotel in Rome 11 years ago and does not even compare. Worth looking at if you are looking for a good hotel. I forgot to mention safe (keep entrance door closed later in night), quiet and a good breakfast.

If you want an immaculate room near the train station with great convenience for connections, comfort and assistance from the staff - book here. The rooms are very modern. Even though it's only a couple of blocks from the train station - the location is great. Just entering at the front door you know it'll be a good stay. We don't really care about breakfast but this is the real deal - it has anything you'd want. Quiet is also important and our room in the back had no noise at all. I would definately stay here again. P.S. they were kind enough to let us keep our luggage there while we traveled to Naples for a few days before we returned to stay here for a few more night in Rome before out vacation ended.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on an upper level.

We stayed at the Yes hotel for 5 nights in April and we could not have been happier with the service we recieved.

First, the let us check in early as we arrived earlier than expected. They gave us a map and showed us the best ways to get around Rome including buses and tubes. They offer wifi at this hotel for a very reasonable price 5 euros for your entire stay! it's the cheapest I have ever paid, plus they have a computer in the lobby for hotel guests to use free of charge which has internet access.

The hotel was clean, modern and although not the biggest of rooms (we had a double and single in the same room) Its suited us just fine as we weren't planning on staying in the room that long!

Breakfast was okay, unlimited hot drinks, continental breakfast, eggs, bacon etc. etc. nothing amazing but perfect to fill you up for the day ahead!

The location is perfect about a 20 minute walk to the Colusseum down 1 road! About a 5 minute walk to the termini station where you can get the tube across Rome (we got it to Vatican City, it was a bit packed and the staff were rude, but nothing too different from the London Underground)
You can also get tour buses from over the road from the Termini station. We used the greenline buses (Silver and green) as these offered the best deal and stopped at better palces, my opinion obviously.

To be honest, we bought a 48 hour ticket for the bus as it savedus wondering around looking for places and wasting time.

The hotel went over and above to help us, with a fantastic reccommendation for dinner. You must go to Mama Angela's a terrific restuarant reccommended by the hotel, so good in fact we went 2 nights in a row.

They also have a room where you can leave your luggage if you have a later departure, which is kept locked...very handy!!

I highly recommend this hotel and will stay there again if I return to Rome (which i'm hoping to, I did throw a coin into the Trevi Fountain, so fingers crossed)

Room Tip: Rooms towards the back of the hotel may be a little quieter, not that we were heavily disturbed by t...
