    Historical Traveler Reviews Mariano Hotel Rome

    Wasn't so bad!

    from

    we stayed in the Hotel Mariano from 12/3 to 12/9 - we did have some trouble with the water running icy cold and then boiling hot - we were moved to a new room the next day. Much better plumping and much larger room. It was a typical Euro hotel. The breakfast was average on European terms. The staff was friendly and helpful. Yes, this is in a area that is beginning to develop into a little Chinatown. Just be friendly, tip a little extra, and everything will great. Visit Trattoria Angelo on Via Gioberti just a few blocks away. Great meals at a reasonable price. We were traveling with children 9 and 15 (they both loved Angelo's) and the hotel actually exceeded my expectations. I would go back to stay there!

    This place stunk, literally.

    from

    My traveling party (Caucasian and Asian mix) stayed here for 3 nights right up to New Year's 2005. We reserved two rooms, (one facing the street, one facing the back alley) so I can comment on both.

    Positives: Close to Termini station, somewhat close to most sites, decently decorated lobby, one room was big, the other room of moderate size.

    Negatives: Both bathrooms smelled like sewage water. When we opened the window to air it out, we smelled the Chinese restaurant back alley stench. Showers were either too hot or too cold, and changes without warning. Breakfast spread was cheap, no meats, only bread, cheese, cereal and juice. The lady that worked the breakfast shift was extremely rude, she kicked out my friends for staying too long and was constantly mumbling to herself in italian while looking at us from the corner of her eye. We paid a whopping $190 USD/night.

    Other comments: The hotel was near a lot of Chinese stores and restaurants - maybe a Chinatown? Lobby staff was okay, gave us a free Tour book.

    I would not recommend this hotel.

    Dump, rip-off

    from

    This is a dump. It's supposed to be a 3 star, but i would rate it a one-star or less. It's like a backpacker's hostel, thought they charge over 100 Euros a room. We stayed one night and shifted the next day to the Mercure Corso Trieste. It's next to the Termini station, which is not a great area to be in, though it's close to the attractions. In Rome, I suggest you stay in a good reasonably priced hotel like the Mercure Corso Trieste or the Jolly Midas, which are away from the city centre. it'll cost 10-15 Euros to take a cab to the centre and you'll get a much better (and cheaper) hotel. And most hotels have a free coach to the centre and if you take a tour they'll pick you up from your hotel.

    Very helpfull staff, and clean rooms

    from

    this is a medium average hotel, and I believe was very good, the room was very clean, breakfast very good and close to temini station, for the price I paid, think got the most of it, so I recomended.

    Big Room, Little Enthusiasm

    from

    Close to the train station yes! Big Rooms yes! Breakfast Included yes! Staff enthusiasm, NO!!!

    The good things about this hotel, location near to every sight in Rome, The restaurant next door has great meals but dont expect the staff to go out of the way and when they do, it is only to collect your money/payment for the room. Very rude, but when you are not a local, that is mostly how italians are....happy to take your money and thats about it......

    I dont like it much..

    from

    I had been there last October. Rome was the last stop of my trip in Italy. This hotel isnt as good as all the hotels i lived in my previous stops,(some of them are 2-star only.) The room and the bathroom are clean but with dim light.

    The worst thing is the staff are unfriendly to me and my Malaysian friends. (I wonder why the former writers would think the staff there were such FRIENDLY, I hope there was no discrimination).

    Also, we found this hotel just when we got off the train at the train station. The one who promoted this hotel to me, promised I could have a single room at a price Euro 59 on the last day of my stay(cuz my friends were going to leave one day earlier than me), but when we arrived at the hotel, the receptionist said thatz impossible to have a single room at such a price. This shows the staff there are lack of coordination. Luckily, the staff found that they had made some mistakes by their own and gave me a single room at that price.

    I think I would rather look elsewhere for a better live in Rome next time, at least, some friendly staff.

    Great find in Roma! A Fantastic 3 star Hotel!

    from

    We have stayed at this hotel twice and would stay again on a next visit to Rome. The location is ideal for day trips, walking distance from the main train station. Located in a quiet area with good places to dine. A lot of historical sites are walking distance if you do not want to take the metro. The Mariano's hotel's staff speak english and are very friendly, and accommodating. The hotel rooms are large and clean!

    Okay for an overnight

    from

    This hotel was adequate for the 1 night we stayed. We wanted accomodations by the train station. It was quiet. The room was good sized. The bathroom and linens were a bit on the worn side. Shower was dangerous. Water was scalding then cold. Breakfast room and lobby were nice. Breakfast was juice, coffee, and pasteries mostly. Adequate for our needs. Didn't care for first person we met at the lobby. We had been up for 24 hours and had just come in from the train. When asked when check in was. He asked me when check out time was and I could figure it out from there. Otherwise all the other staff we met were very courteous and friendly. Good hotel for an overnight stay but I wouldn't stay for longer.

    Very nice hotel

    from

    This is a very nice hotel. The rooms are big and clean and the hotel staff is very friendly and helpful. It is also in a good location. It is a good find for Rome.

    Nice hotel

    from

    Nice, centrally located hotel that was good value for money;just 4 blocks from train's platforms. Large and very clean rooms.Would go back.

It is an important catacomb as there are nine 3rd century Popes buried here. Burials were sometimes in family vaults and were mainly Christian burials, many of them being martyrs. The vaults were carved out of the tufa rock, sometimes up to five vaults high in the walls. They were along the corridors or in rooms off the ...

As such, you don't do a lot of rearview mirror checking for cops or feel any sense of panic when you see the local law enforcement - they have a tendency to either be chatting, or looking the other way n Naples. They don't usually spend manpower checking your speed. They let speed cameras or the " Tutor system" do the work for them. this system automagically knows (rate * time = distance) and can send you ...
