      Historical Traveler Reviews Homs Hotel Rome

      Staff very friendly

      from

      My 13-year old daughter and I stayed at Hotel Homs last weekend. I had booked a twin-bedded room back in July so was disappointed to be shown the smallest room ever on the 1st floor with a double bed in it. Went straight to reception where they immediately changed our room to a much larger twin-bedded room on the 4th floor. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

      Though our room could definitely do with a lick of paint and new curtains and carpet it suited our needs. The bathroom was clean with big towels and there was ample wardrobe space. The breakfast on the roof terrace was wonderful with an amazing selection to choose from.

      One other downside was that we were overlooking a small restaurant which was quite noisy at night, but we were so tired after all our walking we didn't have much trouble going off to sleep.

      You cannot beat the locality of Hotel Homs, right round the corner from the Spanish Steps and a very short walk from Trevi Fountain and Piazza Navona. Would definitely recommend this hotel and would stay there again.

      Great location... Shame about the Staff

      from

      The hotel is in a great location, in a little side road just around the corner from the Spanish Steps and I mean just around the corner! I can only describe the location as similar as staying in the Bond Street area of London, you can find Gucci, Prada, Dior and many other brands literally 2 streets away, it was fabulous for me as I love shopping. Even better was that the sale was on the day after I arrived - all the major designers were on sale.

      The room was small, but reasonably clean, four of us went , so we had 2 rooms. The room I had, had a terrible shower and the room itself looked slightly old and shabbier, whereas the other room we had was more spacious and seemed newer, a powerful shower too. So I guess it is luck of the draw what type of room you get.

      Although the location was great, the staff was rude, the maids would barge into your room, even though you were inside, completely ignoring the DO NOT DISTURB sign. On one occasion the maid even shoved past us to go into our room. She couldnt understand any english so we had to go and complain to the reception, who were not even helpful or apologetic.

      Also, word of warning, DO NOT ask reception or anyone to deliver things/shopping to your room or hotel. The staff are so incompetent they will just deliver to the wrong room, even when you write down the room number for them. Luckily, in this instance, the items were recovered.

      The breakfast was simple, some rolls, croissant, and cereal, not much hot food, but it was on the rooftop, which was quite pretty.

      At night it is very very noisy, as it is located opposite a cafe/pub type place, and as it was nice weather, everybody was drinking outside way into the middle of the night. So if you are after a good nights sleep, I wouldn't really recommend this hotel.

      Overall, if you do not mind the bad service, and the lack of sleep, the hotel is in a great location, you can walk to most places from it, and it is a perfect base for a shopping trip with a bit of sight seeing chucked in.

      A little about the other aspects of my trip.

      We arrived at Rome Ciampino Airport and got a pre-booked taxi from romeshuttlelimousine - fixed rate of 35euros from any Rome aiport. Picked us up from the airport and hotel on the return trip promptly. Decent car too.

      Trip was great, lots of shopping and so many beautiful places, the sights were amazing, especially the fountain at night. The Rome Coliseum was a disappointment though, not worth seeing at all. I have been to the one in Tunisia and it was by far the best one, the Rome was seemed small, and very run down. it was not worth paying to go in and see at all.

      The food in Italy was also a disappointment, my local Italian did better food!

      As a final note, all four of us that went thought that the Italians are the rudest people we have ever encountered so far. Service was bad in most places in Rome. Not sure if we were just unlucky. ALSO MAKE SURE U CHECK YOUR RESTAURANT BILL. We were over charged and given the wrong bill at least 3 x in the space of the 4 days we were there. Check the totals too, we noticed some totals were completely wrong even though the individual items were correct.

      Great Hotel

      from

      The hotel has a great location, just around the corner from the Spanish Steps and the nearest Metro. You can also easily walk to the Trevi Fountain (which I'd recommend seeing at night).

      We stayed in the apartment on the top floor, which had three bedrooms and two bathrooms...we couldn't deicde which bed to sleep in, it also had its own fantastic roof terrace overlooking the rooftops of Rome. We thoroughly enjoyed relaxing there with a drink in the evening listening to the church bells chiming throughout the city.

      Breakfast was great, with a lot of choice, and served in another roof terrace...We'd definatley stay there again!

      Great Location

      from

      great little place, tucked away in the cobbled streets of the old town, a stones throw from the spanish steps (and Prada/Gucci/Versace/Hermes etc..) Very welcoming staff & clean room, colour scheme a bit bizzare, green bed covers,red carpet & blue curtains, but it very clean, lots of nice big towels in bathroom & plenty hot water. mini bar & air con.

      Breakfast terrace is really pretty with views over roof tops of Rome. Dont miss the campo de fiori, a flower & produce market just off the piazza de Navaro.

      Reception arranged their mini bus to the airport for us, which was a fixed rate of 40 euros. I would deff stay at the Homs again, a true find.

      Descent

      from

      It's 2 small blocks from the cool hang out "the spanish steps" and 1 block from the best shopping experience in your life, so for the relatively inexpensive price you pay it's acceptable! Three women in a spacious clean room (italy standards). The bathroom was clean, the decor wasn't anything great, but who goes to Rome and stays in their hotel!! The staff were pleasant, the roof top terrace was pretty nice for breakfast, although you couldn't quit see the steps as clearly as they said. If your looking for a sound proof hotel keep looking, almost always you can hear your neighboors or people outside the hallway. Listen we just wanted a descent location and a clean bed with a clean bathroom. Instead we got a GREAT location with a clean bed and bathroom at a really descent price. By the way call the hotel and book directly through them it's approximately $30 Euro less p/night!

      Great stay in Rome

      from

      When I read the most recent review, having booked this hotel in September, my heart sank. However, I'm not sure if we're talking about the same hotel! From the time we arrived, we were made to feel very welcome and the hotel was spotless in all areas. The room was small but very adequate and clean (no poking out springs evident on our very comfortable bed!). The breakfast terrace was great and the food was excellent - as much as you wanted from a choice of pastries, cereals, cheeses and meats etc, etc. Our return flight was in the evening and the hotel offered to store our case free of charge while we spent the day sightseeing. The location was great - an excellent choice of restaurants. Just a tip, skip pudding in the restaurant and go to the brilliant gelateria on the corner for icecreams to die for!

      Homs in Italian stands for horrible!

      from

      If you are looking for a third rate...no, let's say it's a fourth rate hotel in Rome, there's nothing better than the Homs hotel. I don't know what the other reviewers are thinking heaping so much praise on such a horrible hotel. Okay, I agree nothing beats the location, if you want to stay in a hotel that makes the YMCA look like the Ritz Carlton. The bed springs were popping through the mattress. The bed frame was something out of a military barracks. The closet for your clothes was a cheap, pressboard, K-mart special. The only thing the hotel has going for it is the breakfast on the rooftop and the quaint lobby, which has old style hotel key shelves behind the reception desk. Anyone who stays at a hotel where the printer is on the reception desk, and the paper jammed when he was trying to print my receipt and took my address and asked me if he could mail it to him...that's when I knew I made the right decision to leave. My wife and I are on our honeymoon, and I am writing this note from a suite at the Hotel DeLaVille, just next to the Spanish Steps, on the hotels Internet TV. Now, this is a hotel. Not the Homs. I mean...if you are looking to really save money and you DO NOT CARE about the furnishings and are willing to sacrifice comfort, then teh Homs is for you. If you want a romantic place to stay, steer far far far far away from this hotel.

      Very good hotel, great location

      from

      My wife and I stayed at the Homs for 3 nights in September. Our room was actually a mini-suite, with a second bed in a separate room. It was clean, well-equipped, and quiet. Breakfast is included and is served in a roof garden -- very nice. Ordinary coffee is self-service, but there was no extra charge for cappuccino or espresso made to order. Breakfast consists of rolls, croissants, butter, preserves, hard-boiled eggs, sausage, granola, boxed cereal, yogurt, juices, fruit, cold cuts, and cheese -- in other words, way more than I usually want for breakfast. I tried the croissants, cold cuts, cheese, and yogurt, and it was all good.

      The staff is very friendly and will speak either English or Italian -- don't know about other languages. They were very tolerant of my basic Italian and didn't answer me in English.

      I had sat on some chewing gum and gotten it stuck to my pants, so I had them sent out for cleaning -- the charge was 5 euros, and the pants were delivered the same day.

      The location is terrrific, though I don't recommend trying to find it by car. It's a 5-minute walk to either the Spanish Steps or the Trevi Fountain, and there are lots of good restaurants in the vicinity. The 110 bus (tour around Rome, with unlimited on and off for 13 euros per day for adults) stops nearby, on via del Tritone. There are also lots of great gelaterie in the few blocks surrounding the Homs.

      Bottom line: I would definitely go back.

      Great location,great prize

A courtesy shuttle took us to the stazione where we quite easily made it to the heart of Rome, via Flaminio stazione. What did we visit & see? Spanish Steps. Was more interested in the house where young British poet John Keats died, to the left of the steps. I've included a poem of his below. Colosseo.

It was built to protect themselves against the Barbarians around 600 AD. Later it flourished as a trade city and a gate way between East and West. These glory days are long gone but the well maintained place has kept its beauty and special character. The narrow canals have very busy boat traffic and the ...

      While it may not sound like a lot writing it up here, that made for a somewhat full day and sore feet. After cramming ourselves onto the one bus that gets us to our neighborhood (and I do mean cramming), we dried off in the apartment before finding a local restaurant at which to have dinner. ...
