Historical Traveler Reviews Giolli Hotel Nazionale Rome
myself and my wife stayed in this lovely hotel from the 12th to the 16th of feb. the hotel was not that busy but the standards were excellent and the staff were very friendly and attentive however the one complaint i have is the fact that they recommend using green line tours for any trips around rome. we paid 46 euro each for a trip to the vatican museum and sistine chapel combined. the cost of entry is only 12 euro and you can hire audio help for information on what you see. so effectively we paid 34 euro for a fifteen minute bus ride. please try the local transport or even better walk. the city is beautiful so walking really is a pleasure
We loved this place!
The location is terrific - within walking distance of everything - and the shopping on this street was wonderful - full of shops that are not real expensive but full of beautiful clothes & shoes.
Most of all we loved the concierge Antonio - he was so friendly and gave us a complete itinerary of the best places to visit in Rome.
My wife and I stayed at this lovely little hotel within walking distance of many historic attractions. The front desk help sometimes seemed a bit confused but always tried to be helpful. The room was large by european standards. The only complaint we had was the water pressure in the bathroom. Lots of great eating places just around the corner.
Great hotel, great location
Hotel Giolli was great! Spent 6 nights in May 2005 and had a large room with wonderful marble bathroom. Front desk very helpful and location was perfect. Did not hear any street noises or noise from other rooms. Definitely would recommend this hotel. Friends stayed at a hotel right down the street for almost twice the amount and had a small room with a crummy bathroom. Stay at the Giolli!!
Avoid this place!
Met only basic need of sleep. Room tiny and cramped. No place to really open one suitcase, much less two. Antique air conditioner very noisy, preventing sleep. Filter clogged and unmaintained. Opening the window only invited garbage stench from back alley below. No working ventillation in bathroom; stayed permanently damp and didn't smell very well. Cardboard towels. Management mostly arrogant and dismissive, when not downright rude. We saved money on bag handler tips - but only because there were no bag handlers.
...hotel, very very freindly staff, excellent room, very clean, perfect location to walk to all areas of city.
Not so friendly but worth it
My friend and I traveled all over Italy in July of 2004. We got a great deal on this Hotel, last minute from a tourist advisor that approached us at the train station. We were a little apprehensive but decided to go with it. We paid $100.00 per night and it included breakfast! I was close to the main attractions and public transpiration. Over all a very nice place!
The only down fall was the rudeness of the front desk clerk and the hours of the breakfast. We missed it every time! It was worth it, can't beat the price
Not Too Jolly
We visited Italy in October 2003, traveling from Rome to many points South and ending in Capri. En route back to Rome we arrived one day early and needed a hotel room. We called the Hotel delCorso, as we had stayed there previously, but they were booked. They found us a room at the Hotel Giolli, which is a stone's throw from Termini. It was nice they could accommodate us, and the breakfast was plentiful, but the room - directly on the streetside with bustling traffic - left much to be desired. Bathroom towels were awful. Overall, it wasn't terrible, but it reminded us of a Howard Johnson and reminded us to plan better for the next trip.
We Loved Carlo!
The Giolli was wonderful! Granite bathroom, hard- wood floor in bedroom, modernized and our triple was very spacious. Carlo, at the front desk was extremely helpful, telling us what to do without purchasing a lot of tours and how to best use public transportation. He also broke the code on ordering wine at local restaurants. He has worked there for several years and acts like he owns the place. He is very annimated, friendly, and we will never forget him. We paid 160E for a triple in high season.

Very long trip here, but our flights were excellent and Gatwick Airport's 5 hour layover was entertaining. We met our guide, Romina, at the airport in Rome. She is charming and efficient. The drive to our hotel was also long due to traffic and accidents, but it is a lovely facility with clean rooms. Bruschetta, lasagna and tiramisu for supper. The other groups are friendly and welcoming -I think this will be a good trip. Going to bed ...
I have to admit I was a little intimidated by Rome before going there. In particular I wasn't looking forward to driving in Rome, and also I had heard a few negative reports about the place, but we were very pleasantly surprised and had a ball there. Thanks to my cousin-in-law Priscilla we had a great recommendation on where to stay - Trastevere which is a really cool inner city spot right on the river to the south of the Vatican. We had a pretty cute little ...
... Nooooooo!! Determined to see something beautiful before heading back to the room we grabbed some pizza and ate it while walking to the Spanish Steps. Which was also under construction! The fountain at the bottom is closed and fenced off and drained and the church up top is also covered. So yeah...pretty much just concrete steps right now! We looked at the map and villa borghese wasn't far so we went up all those stairs and over and....yep, it's closed for the day. ...
... gate wasn't listed yet so we waited a while until our boarding time was actually starting to creep up and we didn't have a gate yet. Unphased, we just figured the flight was delayed. Not that big of a deal. Well, soon prior to the boarding time we were supposed to have, I checked the board to see in Czech that in these scary looking red letters a new word was where "Rome" used to be. Turns out, that meant ...
... enough to eat outside but all the smokers sit outside so we opted to sit at an inside table. We studied the menus and then I watched the video playing on the tv totally forgetting what menus do when near flames - our table had a lit candle on it. I couldn't figure out what the smell was until Andy saw the edge of the menu on flame. It was quickly extinguished and we were embarrassed but luckily, nobody even noticed! I blame it on lingering jet lag.
