Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Regent Roma Rome
Terrible, just terrible
Had a terrible experience here. Spent two nights. Very loud, as there was an elevator on the other side of our wall, not to mention cars on the street outside. Shower drain clogged and got water on the floor in the bathroom. Service from the front desk was very rude. They acted like they were doing us a favor even talking to us. Not nice at all.
Charged me $14 for a collect call that I made, even though they said it was supposed to be free.
It was a clean room at least, and the breakfast was above average for an Italian hotel (that is to say they had more than one kind of bread at least). But I'll never stay there again.
Great hotel, quite far out from historic centre
The Hotel Regent lobby looks impressive as you arrive (I booked through expedia and didn't quite know what to expect) although the staff, it's true, weren't overly friendly on arrival. The hotel is located in a pleasant residential area with only a handful of shops and you really have to look for restaurants nearby. However, the STATION EUCLIDE is a few doors away from the hotel and it takes about 5-8 minutes on the train to get to FLAMINIO Metro Station (which is the station for the Piazza del Popolo and the beginning of Via del Corso - the designer shopping street) where there are shops and gelaterias galore. The hotel room we had was well decorated, the bathroom was exceptionally clean and well stocked with towels, the tv worked and the hotel also had put out for us some local and uptodate Rome guides. Breakfast was an excellent buffet with cereals, sugar coated croissants, bread rolls, cold hams and cheese, jams etc., and huge pots of coffee and milk. On our departure, the staff were much friendlier...! I would stay at the Hotel Regent again if I was in Rome for a longer stay, as it was, we were there for 3 days and the distance of the hotel from the historic centre means that if it rains (and it rains in Rome more than it does in London) you are miles away from a change of clothes!
Never again. It is out in the boonies. You can take either the unreliable metro (careful of pickpokets), an overpriced taxi ride, a crowded bus (careful of pickpockets) or a 60 minute walk into the city center. The room was small, and basically sucked. The airconditioner was half working. The view was of a tin roof next door. The elevators could hold 6 midgets at max minus baggage. The hotel staff are very very unhelpful. If you need assistance travel next door to the ritz and ask the concierge who is most helpful and very fluent.
Stayed at the Regent for 6 nights in March 2004. The lobby of the hotel is very nice, and the rooms aren't bad either. The staff was friendly enough and the breakfast was quite good considering it was free. Don't pay the full rates of 200 euros, check with an internet travel site and you should be able to get a rate of <100 euros. Would stay here again.
Awful rooms, and service was worse
I travel a great deal, don't need anything fancy in a hotel room, and had high hopes for this hotel - near metro stop, buffet breakfast included in discounted hotel rate. However, my first room had threadbare carpet, not a picture on a wall, and up against the window was the corregated tin roof of some type of building - easy access to anyone who wanted to climb up. The staff was uncaring and rude when I asked for another room. I was told (untruthfully, as it turned out) that the hotel was full and to try the next day. The next day, new manager, same attitude. However, eventually I was moved to a somewhat safer (higher) room. Still not worth what they charged. Buffet breakfast was pathetic. The metro stop is actually a train and Rome's transportation system is unreliable - they closed the train early on New Year's Eve and reduced the schedule on New Year's Day. Next time I'm in Rome, I will stay near Termini or one of the tourist sites on the main metro line. I wouldn't board my dog at this hotel.
Rooms are clean and have a decent size. Buffet breakfast is good and the staff is very friendly and helpful.The hotel offers a good value. There are actually quite a high number of conferences, and that should tell something.If you can get a good rate for this hotel (around 90 euros per night) it is worth staying here. It is a little out of the city center but with bus and metro access that is not a big problem, it usually took us 15 mins to get to the center. Check out ... for maps.
Stayed at the Regent 4 nights during the Easter holiday week. Got a very good rate through an internet discount site. The hotel is in a residential area, easy access to the subwayand there is a good inexpensive restaurant outside the hotel. I would call it a 3 star hotel, but it was very clean, the staff was friendly and the buffet breakfast was great!
Rome it was great
The rooms were small , but quality. The staff were extremely pleasant and I would certainly stay there again.
The hotel was unimpressive
The hotel was old. The rooms were small and unimpressive. The staff was not very amiable. I won't stay there again.

... and said that he was an Italian millionaire and we were all so surprised. An Italian millionaire bought me a drink! It was so nice that someone so successful could buy someone he didn't even know a drink and I think the world needs more people like him. Just that one little act of kindness can change someone's day completely. When we left the little cafe we went to the Magnum store that we had seen early on the bus. We found it easily ...
... venturing out for a wander round the piazzas and fountains this evening. We had free time to choose our own dinner venue around Piazza Navona. We enjoyed dinner in a restuarant called 4 Fiume (4 rivers) on the Piazza. We realised we paid a little more to sit on the square, but the people-watching was fascinating.
Trying to get an early night tonight, so we can get up early to go off to Pompeii tomorrow.
Ciao for now.
... Neither of them were replying to my messages and couldn't find the English girls so ended up just chilling in my new room for a bit. Decided to head out on my own and start walking around the city. Was a bit strange wondering around on my own, I'm so used to being in big groups on the karate trips. Walked away from the centre before heading in and found a massive wall that I think goes around most of central Rome like a ...
... In addition to making a wish, I threw in a coin in hopes to return to this eternal city in future! As we were soaking up the pure amazingness of the fountain, like a true tourist, we were also suckered into buy a 5€ Polaroid of us in front of the fountain but hey your only in Rome once!
After spending some time in front of the Trevi Fountain we moved onward to another great piece of Roman architecture.... The Pantheon! We were disappointed to find out that ...

Well, we are back to the real world tomorrow evening. We don't want to leave Italy but we are ready to see Sophie and Tucker. I leave you with a quote from our tour guide today - not all roads lead to Rome, but all roads lead from Rome (including Via ...
