    Historical Traveler Reviews Mediterraneo Hotel Rome

    A great hotel for a city break

    from

    i stayed at this hotel as part of a package deal and after having read reviews on this site was a bit worried. having stayed there i would thoroughly recommend it. It's about a 1 minute walk from the front of the termini and is handy for walking to most of the famous sites in rome. the only time we took a train was to hop over to the vatican but even then if you enjoy a walk it wasn't too far to go by foot. the hotel itself was spotlessly clean and the staff on the front desk were exceptionally friendly and helpful with my various enquiries. the room wasn't huge but it more than catered for our needs and had all the bits n bobs you'd expect - telly/ hairdryer/ mini bar etc etc. the breakfast has been slated in previous reviews and it wasn't of the highest standard but there was a lot of choice and i left every morning fully fed and satisfied and set up for the day ahead - options are cereal/ continental/ eggs & bacon and various fruits, yoghurts, pastries. i like a good brekkie and wasn't disappointed, in fact it was a shame i didn't have room to shovel more in! all in all i would thoroughly recommend this hotel for the city tourist.

    If you want to be next door to the station...

    from

    Stayed at the Mediterraneo for two nights.

    We requested a double, and they got us a twin, but they joined the beds the second day.

    The rooms are ... roomy, with period furniture, but the general impression is of faded charme.

    The worst point was breakfast, with dreadful juices and spongy croissants.

    We paid around 180 €, quite overpriced for the place.

    Handy if you have any reason to be really near to Termin train stations, but really no other reason to recommend it

    Not really a 4* hotel

    from

    I stayed in this hotel for a price of 125Euro/night. I think I paid that price mainly for the location. (However, when I reached Rome, I realised that there are a lot of hotels of different stars around the terminal. This is not the only choice.)

    The room I got, looks like a 2* Bed and Breakfast. I have asked for a non-smoking room, but I saw an ashtray in my room. If there is no non-smoking room, I think it is a courtesy to inform the guest.

    I agreed that security is very slack, anyone can just ask for the keys which you can see it is in the pigeon hole, ie. guest is out. The hotel is big, so I dont think the front desk can remember any of the guest's face.

    The breakfast spread is the below average. I asked for a cappucino, the server nodded her head, but the cappucino never come. She is not busy at all.

    Although I have no big issue with this hotel, but I wont recommend this hotel.

    Watch Your Belongings

    from

    It is difficult to write an objective review of this supposed 4 star hotel because we were robbed while sitting in the lobby. My wife had her bag stolen by some professional thieves who evidentally work the lobby of this hotel since they picked the one area where there are no video cameras and they knew there was a quick exit through a back staircase to the next door hotel which is attached. We had been sitting alone in an area of the lobby where there is free internet access. My wife got up from the seat next to me to see something on the internet, put her bag on the seat, and in that 5 second span the bag was stolen. Obviously we were being watched by these thieves, though I have no idea where they came from since there was no one sitting near us.

    A robbery certainly ruins a stay but the way the hotel management and the management that owns the chain of hotels reacted was almost worse than the crime. My wife screamed almost instantly that she had been robbed. This had no motivating effect on the 5-6 members of the staff at the front desk who continued to do what they were doing. Finally, after about 3-5 minutes, one of the staff suggested that we calm down and walk over to the police station around the corner. By now any chance of catching the thieves had been totally lost. When we brought the police over they did not understand a word of english, would not give us their names, and the staff refused to act as interpretors, preferring to let us fumble in trying to communicate with the police. After about an hour the Assistant manager arrived who was somewhat helpful. My daughter suggested we check the security cameras which were of such low resolution that one could barely distinguish a person from a chair. It really didn't matter since this area of the lobby had no coverage anyway.

    The assistant manager did say he would do everything possible and might even be able to comp a night to make up for the lapse in security. Of course we never heard from him again. I wrote the national management of the hotel chain which never answered my first e-mail. 3 weeks later they answered our second e-mail advising us that they could do nothing and next time we should be more careful. How is that for a sympathetic management.

    In closing, if you don't mind being robbed and fearing for your safety, then this hotel with decent rooms and proximity to the train station is for you.

    Great hotel,great location

    from

    I recently stayed at the Mediterraneo hotel in Rome.The location is the best. It is within a block of the Termini station. That not only means buses , trains and subway connections but also a travel office and the "hop on hop off bus".The Termini is also a mini-mall with a variety of shops. My room was large and well furnished, although, with "old" furniture. That is because the hotel prides itself on Italian Art Deco furniture. I have been told that it has been featured in magazines. The rooms seem to all be different. I had the opportunity to visit a friend's room and it was smaller than mine but had 2 french balconies.The rooms are sound proofed with thick walls and double windows. Mine was complete with double window coverings. I found the staff to be very helpful and appreciated the booklet that I found in my room with walking tours of Rome. The breakfast was a typical buffet continental breakfast but the red orange juice was memorable.I would recommend this hotel to tourists and anyone who wants a comfortable hotel centrally located in Rome.

    Fair & No Frills

    from

    A travel agency recommended this place as a mid priced alternative. I paid about 170 Euros when I went around New Years.

    I would rate it a 3 star for US standards. The high price is not from the quality of the room but from its location from the Central Train Station (Stazione Termini). It's literally 1 block from it on Via Cavour. Rome only has 2 subways and both are at the Stazione Termini so it was convenient in terms of getting around.

    The room was just so-so and it wasn't worth the money in my opinion. Half of the staff was friendly and helpful. The free breakfast was very average. The only hot food was bacon and scrambled eggs (very runny). There was bread, cheese and cereal also.

    If convenience is what you're looking for and you don't usually expect to stay in your room for a long time, you should stay here.

    They have a website.

Arriving in Hong Kong at night, we had to wait for a parking bay( I think that we were 8th in line for a spot.

    ... gelato ever. It took us forever to choose 3, but eventually I chose ricotta with fig sauce, meringue and chocolate fondue. Delish!

    We also went to a coffee shop that I had visited last time called Tazzo d'Oro. The coffee was just as good as I remembered and so cheap! Only a euro for a cappuccino.

    That night we went on a pub crawl we found out about at the Colosseum. It was a good night ...
