... ve been having. Flying over Italy the country is simply beautiful! We came in around 6am and landed at 7am so the sun was just coming up and fog was settling in the valleys. We got off the plane (after a small delay as the crew had forgotten to bring a power generator with them), and followed the rest of the sheep to the internal rail to customs and baggage collection. Customs was extremely cruisey - I don't think the official even stopped ...

I couldn't get any cash out at Fumicino because the ATM machine said the card wasn't activated. I only had 40 Australian cents and there was an error message when I rang the international number on the back of my debit card. So I used my credit card to get the train to Rome and book into the hotel. I managed to get money out from ...

We were thinking this is going to cost a lot but he only charged us 26 dirham ( $4.00 ) amazing seeing the taxi that dropped us at the market, at about half the distance asked for 80 dirham ( $ 10.00 ). We were very grateful to him and he was very happy to have found the place for us. We got out of the taxi ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsBest Western Hotel Canada Rome
I stayed in this hotel last year of the same month. I could have ranked this hotel a 5 star but I decided not to because of some things that happened when I arrived.
I arrived Rome via Cathay Pacific Airways flight 293, which left Hong Kong at 1205 and arriving in Rome after 13 hours which gave you a real tiring experience. Eventually, I arrived Rome at 730 local time and by 900, I was already at the hotel. I didn't expect to be accommodated right away but I was expecting a little courtesy from the front desk. The front desk could be in bad mood during that time and was answering me rudely the whole time. So I left and had breakfast at the nearest opened restaurant which was a couple of blocks from the hotel. By 1000, I was back at the hotel and just waited patiently till an assistant approached us to be in our room by 1100.
Well, I stayed in this hotel again because of its location and its rooms. I wasn't disappointed with how the rooms was presented but some things are missing, like having only a pair of room slippers or maybe requesting an electric adaptor to charge my gadgets which I was able to borrow last year.
Anyway, it could have had a 5 star experience if not for the service flaws. Still recommended but hopefully will have a better courtesy from their staff.

Historical Traveler Reviews Best Western Hotel Canada Rome
This hotel should be a 4 star
Thanks to the previous reviews we stayed here for a total of 5 nights. We were super impressed. We stayed at 4 star hotels in Italy that weren't comparable. This should really be a four star hotel. The toiletries are to be seen, better than a Westin or W hotel's goodies! Don't let the Best Western name put you off, it's independently owned and operated and nothing like the usual Best Westerns in Canada!
A charming hotel...
Hotel Canada is a charming, lovely hotel. Rooms were spotless. Front desk personnel were friendly and helpful. Lots of toiletries in bathrooms. The daily breakfast buffet was plentiful, varied, and very good. Rooms were decorated old European style. We really felt like we were in Italy. We were a family of four and the room was quite comfortable size wise. About four blocks from the main bus and train station in Rome. Would definitely recommend this hotel.
We stayed at Hotel Canada because of the reviews on this site, and we were by no means disappointed. Hotel Canada is a very attractive hotel with courteous and helpful staff. Our room was fantastic and the breakfast with eggs, bacon, pastries, and fruit was the best we experienced at any of our hotels in Italy. It's within walking distance (4 or 5 blocks) from the Termini with luggage. If we were planning a return trip to Rome, we'd stay at Hotel Canada.
Previous reviews were spot on
Selected this hotel based on the previous reviews, having trawled thorugh dozens of the other hotels in the area. I was not disappointed, rooms were comfortable and well decorated, staff very friendly and relaxing in the bar was joy (prices 50% less than the local eateries).
Location is good with easy access to the centre, main rail station only 300mts away. Highly recommend this hotel.
Great rooms and service !
This has proven to be one of my favourite hotels worldwide. Initially, I found it when staying at another hotel nearby in which I was very disenchanted! I love the chance to travel to Rome and to stay at the Canada. The staff on reception treat me as if they know me and nothing is ever too much trouble. The rooms are quiet, spacious and beautifully appointed. A cappucino from room service came with a couple of lovely biscotti. Their breakfast is a good start to the day. Many good trattorias etc nearby; try Leoni d'Abbruzzo in the same street..
Thanks to the other guys reviews. Based on these I booked and thought it was great. Still lots of bathroom pressys. Very convenient and excellent value. We had a lovely room with painting decorating the ceiling. Furniture was complimentary to the room. Only criticism I can think of is the coffee was not brilliant in the morning!!!!
Hotel canada is excellent
we recently stayed at the hotel canada in rome and found it to be fantastic, located within easy walking distance of the termini. the rooms are comfortable and all the staff very helpful. we will stay there again next time we are in rome
Hotel excellent value for money. lovely room, pleasant staff.
Excellent location near to Rome Termini station
I had a five day holiday in Rome and stayed in Hotel Canada in July 2001. It has a great central location being only five minutes walking distance from Rome Termini station - this is on a direct line to the airport, so is very handy. The hotel is excellent, quiet, and staff are very pleasant. I looked out onto a busy street, and had a very nice room. The guy who has written the other review is right about the bathroom goodies! Breakfast is very nice, and you tend to also be in the dining room with Italian business people, as well as other European tourists. You are very close to the Rome metro - a stop is also at Termini, and it will take you all over Rome.
Can't go wrong here
I've stayed at the Hotel Canada twice. The rooms are very nice and well maintained, and some over look a small courtyard in the center. The staff are very friendly and the breakfast is very tastey, especially the chocolate croissants.
It is by the train station, but I had no problems even though I was travellng alone.
You get lots of goodies in the bathroom, and frankly this hotel if located in the historical centre of Rome would cost up to twice as much.
