My first day in Rome was a write off, I was exhausted from getting up at 5 am to catch the train here from Ancona and I was still a bit lagged from the boat trip from Split. So once my room was finally ready, over six hours after I'd arrived, I could only lay in bed and recover. I had an early night and slept okay, having to tell the *******s in the next room to shut up ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Astoria Garden Rome
Good hotel, TERRIBLE location
The hotel is lovely - nothing fancy, but clean and comfortable with a decent breakfast. But the location is dreadful, and extremely scary at night (and I'm from Brooklyn, so clearly I do not scare easily to sketchy nighttime activites). Pay a bit more and stay in a better location, like near the Spanish Steps.
We stayed at the Astoria Garden Hotel in December 2003 and found it to be a great little hotel. We used their shuttle service from the airport for EURO 55.00 (for 4 people) which saved us a lot of aggravation. The hotel is located between two metro stops which made getting around very easy. There were also lots of good, inexpensive restauransts in the area. The showers were wonderful and the staff was very helpful.
Great Place to Stay
After two tiny showers in London and Paris, getting the showers here seemed huge! Very clean, spacious, and the staff is extremely friendly.
The hotel is a short walk from Termini, which gets you where ever you want to go. Breakfast was acceptable. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone planning a trip to Rome.
The Astoria Garden Hotel is Fantastic
The Astoria Garden Hotel was fantastic. The rooms were large, well decorated and clean. It was nice to be able to relax in the garden after a day's sight seeing. The staff made us feel very welcome and were very friendly.
Excellent hotel that perfectly balances class with value.Within comfortable walking distance of the famous sights and areas (10mins), this hotel benefits from being slightly away from the traffic and other tourists. That is not to say that this hotel is remote its a turning away from the main train/bus/metro terminal and so you can get anywhere very quickly.The hotel is bright and airy, and really has that touch of class that makes a holiday in Rome special. The rooms are simple, but of high quality and have the two essentials a good bed and a great shower! Staff are always friendly and courteous, going out of their way to make your stay comfortable.Truly a wonderful hotel that I would eagerly recommend to anyone.
