The staff were great and though the room was small, it was manageable for 5 days. We did find difficulty in placing our suitcases. But the room was clean and well maintained. The bath was equipped well and room heating was good too. It will be evident after 3 or 4 days of stay, that breakfast lacks variety, but there is nothing to complain when you have numerous options in Rome.
The hotel is centrally located - National stop - which has a bus stop and metro in a walking distance.
Overall, we were satisfied with our stay in this hotel.

Historical Traveler Reviews The White House - Christchurch
Loved this Hotel
Stayed at the Britannia for 2 nights, and it was wonderful. We had one of the rooms with a terrace, and it was perfect. We were given a very warm welcome upon arrival. The staff spoke English really well, and were most helpful with tours etc. A great breakfast was included in the price. We were sorry we couldn't stay longer!
Very Good Indeed
My family and I, along with our elderly Aunt & Uncle, stayed at this hotel from 21/02/2005 for four nights. The rooms we had were very good and nicely furnished and comfortable and the staff were helpful and pleasant. Every morning there was a good selection of either hot or cold food available for breakfast, which was a welcome start to each day. I feel I must give this hotel an excellent rating not only for the standards they employ but also due to an unexpected situation involving our elderly aunt, who had to be rushed to hospital after being taken suddenly ill. Once the hotel became aware of our Aunt's situation, their assistance was absolutely invaluable. Nothing was too much trouble and my family and I can never thank them enough for making what was an extremely worry time bareable. I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough!
Britannia Hotel - Loved it!
Just got back from Rome where I stayed at the Britannia. It was everything I had hoped it would be! Would definately stay there again! The Junior Suite was perfect for the three of us. The bathroom was very spacious. We enjoyed the breakfast which was included in the price of the room. Breakfast included scrambled eggs, bacon, toast, fresh fruit, yogurt, cereal, assortment of juices, assortment of breakfast rolls, coffee, tea, and different types of fresh meats and cheeses. We did opt for room service since our room had a beautiful terrace. The cost was 2.07 euro per person and was well worth it. We did ask the front desk for recommendations for dinner. They made us reservations two nights at excellent restaurants. We did try the tour company they offer. Green Line Tour. Was not too thrilled with them. Decided to go ourselves and were much happier. Travelled mostly by taxi. Since there were three of us, it seemed the best way to get around. Never spent more than 10 euros to get anywhere. The Britannia is very well situated in the city. Plus it is off a side street, so we never were bothered with the noise from traffic. Would highly recommend!!!!
Stayed five nights in Feb 05. Great location,friendly staff,delicious breakfast -have recommended it to friends.
Just back from a three night stay at the Britannia and found it to be value for money, extremely friendly, clean and close ( within walking distance) to all the tourist attractions in Rome. I would thouroughly reccommend this hotel. We had already booked to stay at the Anglo Americana and after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor cancelled and rebooked at the Brittania - glad we did! Would stay there again!
Enjoy the Britannia
My wife and I spent four nights at the hotel in Nov 04. The night porter was welcoming and most helpful with info covering local restaurants. We were offered a suite, at a supplement, and enjoyed it for a reasonable rate.
Breakfast was first class.
Tours advice relevant
Location very convenient.
No criticism of accomodation.
Have already recommended hotel to friends.
Enjoy your visit....we did.
Above average, except...
We found this to be a very comfortable, clean hotel with super friendly and helpful staff that fulfilled our requirement of being reasonably priced (for Rome) and within easy walking distance of Roma Termini, on a quiet side street off Via Nazionale and close to the Opera. Breakfast was abundant. The bathroom was smallish with a rather narrow tub. Unfortunately, we experienced the water temeperature and pressure problems mentioned by some other reviewers. Thus, an OK rather than an above average rating.
Stayed here at the end of July 2004 for a week. Not having been to Rome before I was apprehensive when you see some of the properties in Italy. From the airport I arrived at the Termini Rail Station, only had a 10 minute walk to the hotel, which is always a bonus after travelling. Nicely decorated hotel, in & out. Very adequate room, fridge, tv,safe,shower,ac, nice bathroom, not a large room but big enough. Excellent buffet breakfast. Being near the station you are near the main bus station, metro, trams, only 20 mins walk to the Roman attractions and with what this city has to offer you are never going to be within 5 minutes reach of everything so well satisfied with the location
I just returned from Rome. One of the nights I stayed at the Hotel Britannia. I don't have any real complaints, other than for the money, you could do a lot better. The best thing I can say is that they had the best breakfast of the four hotels I stayed at in Italy. The service was decent, the room was clean if a little 'tired'. They are very well located, in that most of the major sights are within walking distance.

You haven’t lived until you have driven on Rome’s busy streets with Vespas passing you on the right, on the left, no lanes marked, three cars abreast when there are two lanes, one-way streets everywhere, and most drivers obeying no stoplights or signs, and never giving a signal!
