Historical Traveler Reviews Embassy Hotel Rome
What a location! After a tour filled with hotels on the "outskirts" of all the good attractions and cities, it was great to go to a hotel where you could walk to everything and anything. I am a walker, so this was great (more gelato!) If you are not a big walker, the metro is sooo close by and sooo easy to use - very basic. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone. I am a single girl who stayed a few extra days at the end of a tour, and I felt totally comfortable walking back alone from Trevi Fountain at 11:00 pm. There is everything close -- restaurants, internet, whatever. The people at the hotel helped with anything I needed. The negatives of this hotel are that the traffic can be loud at night. I had to close my windows b/c of it. Also, I had a very small shower (common in Europe), so if you are a larger person and are worried about this, it may be a problem (or you can request a larger shower?) This hotel was very, very reasonably priced, and I found the best price on venere -- definitely worth it!
Embassy Hotel in Rome two thumbs up
Based on the positive reviews I read about the Embassy hotel, I booked it and would definitely agree this is a very good hotel. It is within walking distance of the termini and major sites. We arrived from the U.S. early (11 am Rome time) and our rooms were ready which was great! The rooms are sparsely decorated but very clean. Typical for Europe. The bathrooms were new and clean. Be aware they are very small. The showers would not accomodate a large person. The young man at the front desk was very helpful and friendly.
The breakfast is on the third floor. Our room was right next to the kitchen and it was very noisey very early in the morning. I would not recommend this room or the 3rd floor for anyone who is sensetive to noise. I would go back to and recommend this hotel. The restaurant across the street was given high ratings in the reviews we read. However, we did not like it. The waiters were rather rude, the service was terrible and the food was average. We never got our bill even after asking for it. Convenient but be careful.
Basic but very convenient
I have just returned from a wonderful holiday to Rome. I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights, and was very happy with the location. The room is very basic. Bathrooms were small, and breakfast was just continental. From the hotel you can walk to all the great locations of Rome, or take the Metro. The station is just 5 minutes walk from the Hotel.
Basic hotel, good for low budget travels
Stayed in embassy for 3 nights with my girlfriend. The location of this hotel is good, most of the attractions were within walking distances. The staff were friendly too. Not too bad for an average hotel for the price i paid (120euro/night during jun). Now for the down side, the room was very spacious but quite dusty. The shower room was small and the sliding door for the shower cubicle couldn't shut properly (was repaired the next day after reporting the incident to the management). Would only recomend if you're on a budget trip.
Three thumbs up
We stayed there 4 days. The hotel is located in a nice area, near Termini station, and by Via Vittorio Veneto. 15 minutes pleasant walk to the city centre. The rooms are nice and clean, the price (120 euros per night) below average and the staff is very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is plain but good. Air conditioning worked well, and a safe is in the room. Check out the restaurant on the other side of the street - da Giovanni - outstanding!
Better than basic
This hotel is in a great location, its five minutes from via veneto, ten minutes walking from termini station and ten minutes walking to spanish steps. the staff are brilliant, friendly and very helpful. Our room was very clean and quite large for a central hotel. Via antonio salandra was quite noisy and we were'nt too keen on the continental breakfast but that is our only moan! There is a great family run restaurant directly opposite. Book direct through the hotel for the cheapest rates, we got a great deal on their website. We wouldn't hestitate to recommend this hotel.
Basic but convenient
My wife and I stayed at the Embassy from May 22 to May 26, 2004, on a daily rate of 135 Euros. The hotel is situated about 10 walking minutes from the main train station and about 20-25 walking minutes from the Spanish Steps and pedestrian zone. It occupies 3 stories of an old appartment building, what at first seems rather unusual. Rooms are rather outdated, in need of some lift-up, but everything was functional: minibar, hair-drier, in-room safe, and air-conditioner (though I guess not every room has air conditioner). Reception is always open, and there is a reasonable restaurant just in front (Da Giovani). Good value for a unpretentious short stay in Rome.

... pay €5. Oh well, whatever saves my feet at this stage. Not really having a huge interest in ruins we have a quick look and tell Scott to go on ahead and we will meet up later.
Next stop, the Pantheon. We definitely need a taxi to get there but for the first time none appear. However a guy driving a 2 passenger electric bike does appear and gladly picks us up and takes us to the Pantheon....and he is a tour guide to boot! It is a ...
... One of the most amazing things I think we learned however is why there is constantly running water all over Rome. They were literally so smart that they designed a system that delivered 40 gallons of water per person per day, and it was clean water to boot. The kicker? That type of efficiency was not seen again in Rome until the 1970s because of the dark ages, and the 1980s in places like New York, unreal. That's ...
Arrived at our Hotel around 1.00pm - room not ready, no problem ! Lunch at the hotel café - room still not ready! After lunch ,decided to go for a walk to Castel Sant'Angelo not far from hotel. Not the most pleasant afternoon, hot and humid, no shade with heat bouncing of concrete buildings. When we finally got our room, it was very comfortable, fully equipped, glass tumblers instead of thin plastic cups ! The trend ...
... dinner...it is a more authentic area of Rome with less tourists...it was by far the best dinner yet.
