TravelPod Member ReviewsAberdeen Hotel Rome
This was a comfortable, clean, quiet and peaceful hotel although it was near the large and busy Termini Station. The hotel's location was quite central and we had no difficulty in accessing the public transportation to all of our itineraries. It had very helpful English-speaking staff. There was a very good breakfast each morning.

Historical Traveler Reviews Aberdeen Hotel Rome
A great place to stay!
This is a great hotel. The staff is nice and very helpful of information about Rome. The rooms are all very cozy and a good value for Rome. Its a 3 star hotel located right across from the Ministry of Defense, which means there are always a lot of police around and the neighborhood is VERY safe. We were there in March and April 2004 for 5 nights total.The hotel is near Piazza Della Republica and the Termini station (metro lines and all buses are at the piazza) located at Via Firenze 2. There are many great restaurants nearby (I strongly suggest Ristorante Il Barocco)The rooms are great and there is free internet access. The free breakfast is also superb! Misc. rolls, breads, deli meats and cheese, fruit, yogurt, coffee, juice, cereal, and milk.Odyssee Tours is also located just around the corner and offers great excursions within Rome and day trips outside of Rome. A cab ride to the Vatican was 10-15 Euro while most other attractions were cheaper or within walking distance.
A Great Stay at the Aberdeen!
Just stayed at the Aberdeen 10 Feb-14 Feb. Great location, secure, clean and bright. Friendly, helpful staff. Room was as promised and at a great rate for off-season!
My 1st and only choice when in Rome
I was in Rome twice last year, and I have had the most pleasant stay each time. It was relly sweet of the staff to remember me as soon as I walked through the door. In fact, I received a very nice discount for having returned so soon. I was even more delighted months later, when I opened my mailbox and found a nice Christmas card from the hotel. I always travel alone, and I feel so safe at this hotel. I spent the fall in Paris (my old stomping grounds), and will be in Venice shortly. Rome is just a few months away, and I know that I'll be at Aberdeen. Room # 19 each time! Thanks a bunch!
Great value for money
Having stayed in this hotel several years ago I decided to try it again for 2 short stays before and after Christmas 2003. The hotel staff handled my initial e-mail request very promptly, and offered a better single room rate than I had been able to find via internet agencies.
(It was also incredibly better than the seasonally-inflated rates being charged by other 3-star hotels in the vicinity.) On finding out I would be arriving very early in the morning from New Zealand the hotel also promised if possible (it was!) to make a room available from 9.00am, which was absolutely brilliant after such a long journey. The first room I had was rather airless, and the window would not open; the second was close to the breakfast room and there were some unwelcome early morning noises (general soundproofing was OK though). Otherwise, the rooms were attractively decorated, spotlessly clean, with a comfortable bed and good bathroom facilities. Breakfast was good relative to other 3-star Italian hotels I've stayed in. Reception staff spoke good English and were faultlessly courteous and helpful. Coupled with the hotel's great location close to the railway station and many major city attractions, the Aberdeen remains my first choice in Rome at the 3-star level. Highly recommended!
A Quiet Oasis in Rome
My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Aberdeen for 5 nights recently. I researched places to stay in Rome extensively. After reading the reviews here and from other sources, decided to try the Aberdeen We were not disappointed. We found the reviews to be quite accurate. The location is ideal:near all public transportation and in a quiet neighborhood. The staff was friendly, extremely helpful and very courteous.
Our first room we had was small but spotless. The bed was a little too firm for me . On our return to Rome after a 3 day trip to the Adriatic Coast we stayed for 2 nights. This room was small and located next to the main desk. This had drawbacks and some perks. It was easier to manage with the luggage in not having to climb the stairs. At night this area was not quiet with the phone ringing and people talking at the desk. The night we checked in the room I told the desk clerk the room was hot. We opened the windows to find ourselves facing a cement wall at a basement level. There was no circulaton of air. We slept with the windows open with no screens. Unfortunately, Rome was having a heat wave at that time in November. The night clerk was kind enough to give us a discount on the room. The next day we found the air conditioning controls. The clerk never mentioned the room was air conditioned. This was our only minor problem with this hotel.
We had one crisis in Rome and the staff was helpful in seeing that the problem was resolved. They went out of their way to help us. Anna Marie (the owner) and her cousin Sabrina were wonderful to us.
I highly recommend this hotel for it's location, friendly staff and good breakfast. A major perk is being able to access the internet free in the hotel's lobby. The Hotel Aberdeen is truly an "oasis in a noisy city".
Great location & value
A very good location and a friendly staff. First room we had was noisy near breakfast room. After we moved noise was less of a problem, but still not a quiet location. Rooms were very nice and clean and air conditioned.
Spoilt us for other hotels
If only all hotels were like this: the staff were so helpful; the room was spacious and air conditioned, everything was spotlessly clean; we loved being able to check and send email so easily, the breakfsat was delicious (although the three fruit juices seemed to be the same despite different labels!). Our next hotel in Paris just had no chance!
Spacious and convenient
This was a reasonably priced good value for Rome. Nice hard wood floors, non-smoking hotel with roomy accomodations. Decor was modern and pleasing and staff were extremely hellpful.
Hotel was wonderful
One of the best hotels we stayed at. Breakfast room and breakfast A1.
The staff at desk helped us with whatever we asked. Had the use of computer for e-mailing. Hotel good location.
Nice hotel for the price
We stayed at the Aberdeen for one night as our hotel was overbooked. We found the Aberdeen to be located in a very quiet location, provide quality service, be conveniently located, and have a great breakfast.
We would definitely recommend this hotel if it meets your budget.

We arrived safe and sound, booked into our hotel and then took off to explore Rome and to find our bearings. We walked many km and only got back at 8 before heading off for dinner. The wifi is really slow so it's frustrating and we really haven't been at the hotel much. Always on the go. So I'll load some photos and try and add more text later :) …

... up with Chandrika and Co just outside the metro station and they had already found a tour to go on. Soon we were on our way with the tour, passed through security, and before we knew it we were in the Grand Banquet hall of Vatican City waiting for the Pope to make an appearance. The Pope made his appearance and said a few words. Some cardinals then read out some readings and it was time to leave. There was a lot to see in Vatican City. For the next ...
Jaime got a bit of a two day birthday celebration, which of course she deserved in full! Her second birthday dinner was once again fabulous. Thanks to Melissa, who is quite skilled at making friends, our whole group was able to dine at a lovely place where we were treated like royalty, served much free wine and free dessert for the birthday girl. Italians seem to be quite generous once you are in ...
