Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Adriano Rome
Ok for singles...never for couples
This hotel is in a good location close to historical centre and the main shopping areas. The hotel is not the most welcoming but staff are certainly attentive.
The single room I had was more than adequate. The bathroom was clean and well maintained but no bathtub. The bedroom was comfortable and cosy and had a nice colour scheme!
I was on a reduced rate because of the refit and would probably not pay more money for this hotel as would be better places to stay.
The breakfast was appalling, as are most breakfasts in comparable hotels in major Italian cities. In fact it was possibly the worst breakfast I have ever had in any establishment and to make it even more memorable it is set in a cold and ghostly dining room.
The lift is tiny, so if you are not in to walking up stairs and are staying in Rome for more than a few days, I suggest you don't stay here......it will frustrate you.
It is not a friendly hotel and as a single travel it is quite a lonely place to stay. That said, so are many similar standard Rome hotels.
Would I stay here again...if on my own then possible yes but as a couple NEVER...so many better options and not conducive to a romantic break.
Nice When Its Finished
I had three nights here and must say it was tricky to find, being hidden in a maze of enchanting back streets. But the location !! What a delightful spot, in the Centro Storico and near to all the main sites and the best parts of town.
I found the staff courteous and efficient but formal, thats okay - I don't want to make friends of them and they didnt seem to mind me pinching their reception desk mints. The room was on the fourth floor and was small - but then it was only a single. Clean, tidy and past the builders on the third floor - which was, by the looks of it, being extensively restored. The work didn't disturb me during my stay.
Breakfast was served in a large, airy, nicely decorated room and included yummy rolls, cereals, jams, meats and cheese as well as coffee, juices and tea (of sorts !).
All in all a very pleasant stay, and an ideal base to explore the most beautiful city in the world. Take a map if you're in a hurry to find it - or just enjoy the stroll.
Great for a short stay
We stayed at the Hotel Adriano for 3 days as an extended layover on our way to Taormina, Sicily. The Hotel is small with European sized rooms, if not smaller. We did not have a view of anything from our window. Apparently they do have one room with a balcony, but it is just that, ONE room in the entire hotel. that being said the hotel was clean and the bathroom was just fine. They have a continentel breakfast each morning which was sufficient (rolls, cereal, juice, coffee). Nothing over the top here. There is a small bar and an even smaller terrace in the lobby which only sometimes had chairs to sit on.
The best thing about this hotel was its location. It was very close to the Paizza de la Rotunda and Parliment, two points of interest (the Pantheon and Parliment). Also we were close enough to walk (although it was definitely a walk) to the Colliseum and the Forum. There was never a shortage of close (and amazing) restaurants in the area. We recommend eating by the Pantheon for a relaxed casual dinner, and trying Trattoria dal Cav.Gino on Vicolo Rosini,4 for a typical Roman dinner (we went with an actual honest-to-god Roman who recommended this place to us- but brush up on your Italian before you go, they barely speak a lick of English!!)
Overall, this hotel was perfect for our purposes, a quick stay in the city. Close to the action. After about 3 days the less than ideal mattress gets annoying and even newlyweds will start to feel too close to one another. If you can't move on you might want to choose a higher quality hotel.
As central as needed
Housed in an old palace building from around 1500 very close to all attractions in the old centre of Rome. The rooms vary in sice, the breakfast is basic and there is as expected some noice from the surrounding streets. The staff were friendly and helpful.
The central location is very convenient for a great stay among all the Roman attractions. Good value for the money. The picking up service at airport is fast and efficient and not too expensive.
Boiled eggs a la' Adriano
Having made a spontaneous decision to visit Rome at Easter, my travel agent found me the Hotel Adriano right in the heart of the Campo Marzio rione: perfect.Travelling alone, I expect the room to be small: the bed to be narrow and its location to be as far from civilization as possible.But: I also expect to be offered assistance with my luggage and to be told the etiquette of 'breakfast'....itss also nice to be asked ifthe room is comfortable and (knowing the receptionist speaks good English) a little interest to be taken in where you have spent the day.Breakfast was like a scene from Fawlty Towers. Had it notbeen for another guest I'd probably still be trying to work it out. Plates in one room, cups and saucers in another, bread rolls left over from the time of Julius Ceasar , curled up salami...the most unusual ham. Since I always make myself up a cheese roll for lunch I couldn't even have that to lookforward to and I nealy cracked a marble bench in Villa Celimonta trying to break into the hard boiled egg.I struggled back down in the cosy lift with my bags, paid my bill and was shaken warmly by the hand and my next visit was eagerly anticipated. Why couldn't we have started like that?I love Rome, nothing could deter my enjoyment of the city. Wouuld I return to the Adriano...for some strange reason, yes, I would and even the boiled eggs are a happy memory!
We got a 3 nights for 2 deal through hotelconnect so for a cheap price we found ourselves in this brilliantly situated hotel. It's a couple of minutes walk from the Patheon and five/ten minutes or so from the Trevi Fountain and Spanish steps. Situated within a maze of narrow cobbled streets deep within the historic old town it is far from the madding crowd while still being at the centre of it all. It's situated in a very safe part of town near parliament with lots of handsome policeman wandering around in dashing uniforms! The lobby is elegant and the staff at the reception desk speak English. Our room was clean with a high wooden carved ceiling and a small (vertigo enducing) balcony. The bathroom was small, as was the shower and the sink had a crack. It was clean but not immaculate but I'm a real fuss pot and it was deemed fine by me. The lift is small but that is apparently the case with much more expensive hotels in Rome. The breakfast room is light and airy, you help yourself to fresh rolls and pastries. This is an excellent choice of hotel. I don't know why the American's are being so negative this hotel has bags more charm than a Holiday Inn.
What a brilliant hotel
What a brilliant location this hotel is in! I have just flown back this morning from a fantastic 3 days in Rome. We couldn't have been better placed for accessing all the sights. It was a little difficult to find, we got off the metro at Espagna and walked down via Condotti to Piazza Nicosia and should have turned left there but our map didn't really indicate Via Pallacorda so we went right past it. At first sight it looks like a back street hotel. Until you've walked round Rome you don't realise that virtually everything looks like a back street! Only 2 short blocks from the hotel we stumbled on the Pantheon, magnificent.
15 minutes in the other direction we got to the Vatican, and my favourite, The Trevi fountain (a cliche but for a reason) was only another 15 minutes away. The hotel is clean, warm and very welcoming.
The staff were very helpful and friendly and the mini bar in the room was very reasonable. A very good holiday and I was glad we were in the thick of everything, it meant we could stroll round everywhere without constantly needing taxis or buses. Sorry this is so long but I read the other reviews before I went and wasn't looking forward to it but it was needless worrying, the place did not disappoint me and I will be going back, I threw my coins in the fountain to make sure!
Will go back
The location is great. Walk to Piazza del Rotunda with the Pantheon in 2 minutes, walk to Piazza Navona in 5 minutes, walk to Vatican City in 15 minutes, walk to the Spanish Steps in 5 minutes, walk to Trevi Fountain in 10 minutes. Internet cafe next door and gelato shop with 100 flavors a block away.
The street is a bit busy but if you go in fall-spring, you dont need to open the windows from summer heat and you dont hear any traffic...and I usually travel with earplugs but didnt need them, esp after great meals and wines each night. Staff was very helpful with directions, car service to airport and the like. Lift is small for several people and many bags, only negative I can find.
I think this hotel survives on german tourists and poor souls (like my husband and I) who don't have another choice. (Our other hotel reservation was lost.)
The toilet seat actually fell off and the shower was unusable (NO water pressure.)
Avoind this place until they renovate or at least stay in their own rooms for one night!
Only If You Have No Choice
We basically stayed here because we had no choice - everything else in the neighborhood was booked. It is bland, almost depressing, but solid.
The Adriano seems to appeal to European businessmen, who were the predominant clientile. The rooms are pretty bare, but reasonably comfortable. The hotel staff doesn't seem to care too much about anything. There was construction going on in inner courtyard where many of the rooms face, but it really only went on mid-day when no one was around. All in all, stay here only if you can't find a place at the better accomodations in the Centro Estorico.

Travel Blogs from Rome
The push into the metro to get to the Vatican was sheer crazy. The Italians have no load limits and people literally crash into you. We had no room to hold on, other than the other people who were crammed in as well. Thankfully we locked our day packs so no pick pockets could steal anything. We were warned about the lines and sea of people at the Vatican so thankfully we planned well. We went to St Peters Basilica first because it opened ...
... pleased with the steep walk and confined space. And when she arrived at the top she wasn't pleased, but she was a short time later as the view was excellent. The stairs led to a walk around the outside of the dome almost at its very top. It gave excellent views over Rome except in the direction of our hotel because of the low sun. It also gave us an appreciation as to how big the Vatican is, it's buildings and gardens. It's big. The good news was that we'd gone up there ...
... of four such palaces that were used by the Bourbon Royal House. It anchors one side of the Piazza del Plebiscito directly opposite the Basilica of St. Francesco di Paola. The building was originally intended to be the “hotel” for the King and Queen of Spain on a forthcoming state visit in the early 1600s – but they subsequently failed to front up. So the chap commissioning it [Viceroy Fernandez Ruiz de Castro] decided that he had ...
... made for the big city. Everyday I get back to the hostel warm and sweaty (lovely) and very tired and today I just sort of burnt out a bit. The places I'm visiting after rome should be a bit more chilled, hopefully with less marching around involved. I would definitely, definitely come back to Rome, but I would like to read up on renaissance art so I appreciate the galleries a little more, or at least can put them into context. I ...
... on the bus, but we temporarily forgot how useless this area was for displaying obvious signage. After getting off the bus near the beginning we walked back out to the main road hoping to spot the bike rental shop along the way. No luck. Needless to say, we were getting grumpy. At the entrance of the Appian way we found the Terme Di Caracalla baths, built by the Emperor Caracalla. They were finished and opened back in AD 217 and cover 10 hectares. Of coursee, beng so damn old, a ...
