      Kennedy Hotel - Size of the Shower Stall


      We stayed at the Kennedy Hotel last month, Jun 04 for three nights. I agree with most of the good reviews, very good spread for breakfast and the staff was helpful and it was conveniently located by the train station. However, the AC in our room did not work and our room only had a shower stall. It was smaller than a phone booth and I kept knocking down the shower head everytime I turned around to get my soap or shampoo. Also, discovered that hotels in Italy do not have a wash cloth, so I would recommend that you take one with you. Which we did. In fact I think I read it one of the reviews that it would be wise too bring one along. Also would like to add that the room did not have a refrigerator. I don't think I would return to this hotel.

      Great budget accomodation


      Got the last room in the Hotel Kennedy after escaping a horrible hotel called Fawlty Towers nearby (i should have guessed from the name). The room was a suite and was good value, nice clean and very comfie. The staff in the kennedy were the friendliest Romans I encountered on my trip (that's not saying a lot, I know, but they were v nice).

      We had a great view of a lovely park from the room, the bar was available 24 hours-v important if you are Irish. There were some lovely places to eat and drink closeby and it was within walking distance of all the attractions.

      I am going back to Rome later this year and will definitely stay there again.

      Good value and excellant view


      Our room had a wonderful view overlooking the park. The room was large, clean and ample storage for clothes. The best part was the "All you can eat" breakfast. They served cereal, yogurt, croissant, rolls, GREAT coffee and so much more! Hotel staff was friendly and helpful. Hotel also included a great lift. The hotel is literally one block from the train station and main metro stop. The surrounding area was a little questionable, mostly late at night.



      A first rate hotel. If you are looking for a hotel near to everything in Rome, but dont want to spend a fortune then this is the hotel for you. Very close to the station when you arrive, which is a huge bonus as you don't have to worry about taxis , as you can easily walk and a very friendly staff who can't do enough for you. In fact I have not come across such a friendly hotel staff for a long time, especilly compared with far more expensive hotels. Good, very clean rooms, although one minor fault is that the tv has only one english channel despite advertising others!!!!. Area around the hotel is nowhere near as alarming as previous reviews and if I was returning to Rome I would gladly stay at this hotel as it was such good value.

      Great Visit at the Kennedy


      We enjoyed our 4-night stay (March 2004) at the Kennedy. It is very conveniently located, and our room was very nice. The breakfast was among the most generous continentals we have had. Hotel staff was polite and helpful. Location very convenient, even if in the rather unattractive area near Termini. Certainly would return. It's very good value! H. Herpel

      Great deal for a Roman hotel.


      Stayed at the Kennedy Hotel from 1/2-1/5/04. I prepaid for the room using the British Airways travel service. $216 (not Euros) for a 3 night stay. I have stayed in several Rome hotels in this price range and this hotel exceeded my expectations. My voucher was readily accepted and the staff was very friendly and helpful (most speak fluent English.) First of all, this hotel has a modern elevator that works!

      For this price range, the room was quite spacious and nicely decorated.

      The bathroom had a shower that I could easily fit in to and the water pressure was good. There were turkish type bath towels (not the usual "baby blanket" kind one usually finds in European hotels,) and a bidet.

      The room had the equivlant of a king size bed with a good, firm mattress. The included breakfast was very good. The only negative thing I can say about this hotel is that the neighborhood is a bit seedy - but that is the trade-off for the convenient location next to train station. I'll be back - especially after previous experiences with other Roman hotels - some costing more than triple this price!

      Perfect accommodation in an ideal location


      We had a totally pleasant 6 day stay at the Kennedy Hotel. Extremely helpful and friendly staff. Lovely clean rooms. I can reccommend the 'All you can eat breakfast' and the coffee they serve is so good. Location ideal and not too much traffic noise.

      I've seeb better student accommodations


      saw the raves on this site about this place and thought: fair enough.

      Near to the train station, sure. And that's about as charming as it gets. Surly staff--I didn't see ANYBODY check in without some sort of hassle: "no vouchers, wrong system, blah blah blah. Suspiciously unhelpful. AVOID.

      I loved this hotel


      excellent place, very nice , clean, staff very very helpful, great view on a park... Very central.. If I'm planning to go again in Roma, I'll definetely come back at The Kennedy Hotel ps: great breakfast really delicious!

      Fantastic Place to Stay


      We were desperate and lucky enough to be given the last room of Hotel Kennedy (on escape of a room in awful hotel - without naming - across the street just 30 minutes after check-in). Forget what you have heard about Italian inefficiency and disorganisation. In Hotel Kennedy, all the staff members were extremely friendly, helpful, efficient and professional. Our room had been renovated only two months ago; it was spotless and comfortable. We have our own air-conditioning system which we have full control over (temperature, fan or air-conditioning of heating). The bathroom was of the same excellent standard. Breakfast was buffet-style and consisted of cakes, bread, cereal, hot drinks, yogurt, fruit juice, etc. This was surprisingly good considering Italians don't have a habit of having breakfast, and the other Italian hotels we stayed in only gave us a hot drink and bread for breakfast.

      The hotel also produces a little leaflet useful information, and the receptionists were more than happy to recommend good local restaurants and offer help in all situations. The little bits here and there showing their active effort to be helpful all add up to give the guests a wonderful stay.

      We have no reservation in recommending this hotel, and will definitely stay in this hotel again next time we are in Rome.

      First day in Roma!! We are up early having breakfast at 6.45am so that we allow enough time to get to our meeting point outside the Vatican. Breakfast is good a nice variety and normal bacon!! Gaza is happy about that haha. We head out to find our way to the subway. The trains run regularly so we didn't have to wait at all. We soon arrived at our stop and headed out to explore. The group leader for the tour arrived and we got shown our guide for the day. It's great we get headsets so we ...

After that went to Piazza Colonna featuring a huge 10-story column from the second century with relief sculptures depicting Marcus Aurelius' victories over the barbarians.

      ... The church removed some hundreds of years ago after the Barbarian sackers of Rome found it profitable to take bones from Christian saints and sell them back to the church. But more recently, all the bones still left in areas where tourists are allowed were also removed as the tourists themselves were found to be taking home bones as souvenirs! Really people, in this day and age?! Next stop on the tour was a fascinating church. Actually it was four churches in one, ...

We found a website that offered some activity ideas, one of which was taking a segway tour of historic Rome. Since we didn't get to tour Chianti on vespas, we thought it only right to book it for the next morning. It was all online so I went through the process. They would contact us later on confirmation.

      Thank goodness for sunshine on my last day. I will say that walking and standing in Italy has taken a toll on my feet and knees! Had a marvelous day! It doesn't sound like I did a lot, but the things I did took time and were phenomenal! The Vatican Museum, including the Cappella Sistina, and St. Peter's Bacillaca. I am so ticked off. I had this entire thing written and was adding the photos and poof, it's all gone and I am tired. Thinking about just adding photos and calling it ...
