“Basic, Clean, Friendly Staff.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2014

We found it tough to find affordable lodging in central Rome so we stayed here. It was conveniently located near a train station and found getting around relatively easy. It is a small family-run business with 5-6 rooms, all of which are very tight with minimal space. The walls are paper thin so whenever someone was in the reception talking it sounded like they were standing over me...The window also looked into a courtyard so other people could see in the room.
However, it was all we needed. It was very clean, had nice bathrooms with reliable hot water and very friendly staff.
I will give one heads up that the staff has a list of recommended restaurants. We only tried one and unfortunately it was my least favorite restaurant throughout our entire trip to Italy.

We really enjoyed our stay at Auditorium Di Mecenate. The staff were so knowledgable about all the things to do and see in Rome. When we arrived the lady on Reception used a map to show us and talk us through all the attractions. We were made to feel very welcome. The staff could not do enough for us - one morning when it was raining the male receptionist even gave us his umbrella!
The rooms were clean and tidy and the bed was comfortable. The hotel is situated in the centre of Rome very close to many metro stations, cosy bars and wonderful restaurants. A great base to see all the sights!

We were one of the first guests in the hotel after reopening. The service was excellent. The rooms were good size for Rome. The AC could have worked a little better. The breakfast was brought to your room every morning and was typical European breakfast.

This is a good place to stay if you are not going to spend a lot of time in the room and your plan is to stay most of the day out enjoying the attractions.
Rooms: they are clean and adequate, but the bathroom (at least the one in our room) was unacceptably small.
Location: very good. Close to public transport and you can walk to the Colosseum, although it could be a little bit dodgy in the night.
Service was very good: welcoming staff always willing to help you. Breakfast is average, but ok.
Now, in the value for money equation I found it on the expensive side, considering that this is maximum 2 star accommodation.
Overall, this is a good option.

If you are looking for a friendly, clean and cheap place to rest, Auditorium di Mecenate is a good option. This is located near Termini Station (train station), where you are close to The Coliseum and the forums. The Trevi Fountain is also near. To go to these places you can just walk from the hotel. The hotel is inside a medium building, and is located in the third floor, but of course there is a small lift, but pretty useful and the reception is 24 hours open. The rooms are very organized and decorated. The towels, the sheets and the covertlet were almost news in my stay. The hotel offers wifi, tv, air conditioner and the breakfast is serving in rooms.

The principals features that i can mention are:
1. Friendly service: The treat is excelent. They give you a map and explain to you, the main atractions you can visit. They also give some recomendations about the best timetable and transport you can take to the places.
2. Cleanliness: it was perfect clean and with dayly cleany service.
3. Cheap price: the relation quality price is good. For instance, the room was comfortable, clean and friendly.

There is juat one thing I don't like so much. First, the hotel is good placed, but the nearest sorroundings are lonely. There are good lights and I think is secure because of my personal experience. I were with 3 people more and the first day of our stay was a Saturday an we walked until 12:30 pm and everything was ok. Another important thing is there wasn't a canteen, so we had to call for the breakfast in room, thing we knew from our arrived. In this point, they have a problem, if you don't call at 7:30 am, your breakfast will be late... so, I recommend do it at first.

If I had the opportunity of travel again I would considerer this hotel between my options because of the advantages I have mentioned. Although, I would like looking for another location.

As others have commented - this is an excellent place to stay for several reasons. It is quite close to the main train/bus station, and not far from the Colosseum and Palatine area. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful, and present 24/7. The rooms are modern and clean, plus there is free WiFi. Breakfast is good - served in the bedroom, which might bother some - but not us.

This hotel is in a great location. Walking distance from Termini train station and Metro. Just around the corner from Santa Maria Maggiore church. The room was exceptionally clean and comfortable. The gem of this hotel are all the friendly and helpful staff members. They will go out of their way to recommend restaurants or to show you on a map how to travel to the different tourist sights.

Room Tip: Just email the hotel itch ny request you may have
