Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Mascagni Rome
After researching places to stay in Rome for 3-4 weeks on the internet, we finally picked this place and we were not disappointed. We stayed here in September for 1 week at a very good price we got from their website 'Special Offers'. The staff were great and the location was just right. The room was fine and cleaned daily. Watch out for those dodgy taxi drivers, they know how to up the price when it suits them.
Only use taxis with meters turned on. Taxis work out cheaper if you hail one down on the street. I would stay here again and would recommend this hotel to my friends.
Excellent small hotel!
We stayed for 3 nights in late September 2003 and couldnt have been happier with the hotel. You can't go wrong with this one. The room was lovely with adequate space and a very nice, modern bathroom. The staff was pleasant and very helpful with providing excellent restaurant recommendations and directions to the sites. We definitely would go back.
We recommend to anyone!
We were here for 5 days in Aug 03. This is a delightful, quiet hotel, with spacious, well appointed rooms. (We had a double and triple.) All the staff, top to bottom, were helpful & cordial. We arrived at noon, but our rooms weren't quite ready. We were invited to sit in the bar, where a server greeted us with large orange juices. Location is good, a 7 minute walk from the Termini, and a block from the Republica metro station. Lots of restaurants nearby. We'll absolutely stay here again when we return to Rome.
Just got back from most enjoyable stay. Excellent value for rate charged. Service excellent especially maid service. Only downside was a slow lift!
We just returned from Italy for our honeymoon and found Hotel Mascagni to be the best stay of all the hotels we stayed! The service was outstanding as they made you feel like royalty. From the Front Desk, the Bellcap, to Housekeeping...each showed a great attention to detail!The room was furnished nicely and the bathroom was large, especially by European standards. Finally, the location near the Piazza Republica was a great location to have a base. On top of everything else, we found a great rate for this four star hotel on the internet! The next time we go back to Rome, we will definately stay at Hotel Mascagni!
Very pleased, will go back & would reccomend!
First time to Europe, but have traveled everywhere else. My husband & I stay at Mascagni Feb. 10-20, 2003. We spoke to may seasoned travelers, and did a lot of investigating online, still alittle nervous about such a long stay & not knowing what you will get. VERY PLEASED. This is not a Grand Hotel, but it is a quaint butique hotel. Very friendly & accomidating english speaking male staff, a very clean hotel, rooms were an appropriate size for european standards, completly tiled personal bathroom, which was always spotless, nice large towels-better than in Carribean vacation. Small bar & dining area room. Made a good Martini or cappuccino, breakfast was quite good, always had eggs, fresh fruit, cereals, breads & assorted cheeses, jams etc... Unlike some reviews the concreiges had excellent recommendations for dining, you have to talk to them & convey what it is your expecting out of the meal. We have both been in the casual fine dining 15 yrs. For a true Italian, everyday sorta dining experience Hostera Romana.
Terrific small hotel!
We just returned from a two-week stay in Italy. We spent our first five nights (2/14/03 - 2/19/03) at the Hotel Mascagni. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this fine little hotel. The staff were all very friendly, helpful, professional, and knowledgeable. We had requested a quiet room on an upper floor and received just that. We were on the 6th floor overlooking the dome of a beautiful old church. Our room was small, but comfortable. We had a good bed and adequate storage for our things. The bathroom was immaculate and very well laid out. I really came to appreciate the steam radiator in the bathroom after the second day of walking! Every night I'd draw a steaming hot bath and soak for hours in the very cozy tub listening to the nice sizzle of that radiator (it was freezing temps at night) while I read up on whatever we were going to do the next day. I could have stayed indefinitely at the Mascagni. The complimentary breakfast was the exact same every day, but it was very nice. Eggs (runny one day, to hard the next), cereals, pastries, fresh fruits, good coffee, and juices). We met a variety of people from all over the world, which was very nice (very few Americans). Another bonus about staying at the Mascagni is that it is right around the corner from the Piazza Repubblica and the Metro station. We bought a one week pass and took buses and the metro all over the city, multiple times a day (the pass was $12.40 euros for the week, a bargain!). The station being so close allowed us to travel afar more spontaneously than we would have had it not been so convenient. The only negative was the smoking, which is a negative about the entire country of Italy evidently. When the neighbors smoked (and they all did), WE smoked). Evidently the ventilation system ties all of the rooms together even though there are individual thermostats in the rooms. We will definitely stay at the Mascagni when we return to Rome next spring. Oh, and did I mention that their off-season rates combined with a pay 4-night, stay 5th night free package made the room an amazing deal (about $500 euros for the five nights including breakfast and taxes)???
Mascagni - Great Location - Adequate Rooms
My husband and I and two friends just returned from a fabulous 2-week trip to Italy. We stayed in a four star hotel in Tuscany and were looking forward to our stay in the Mascagni Hotel in Rome.
We booked our stay at the Mascagni Hotel expecting the same level of four star service that we received in Tuscany.
We were a little disappointed with the Mascagni when we arrived. The hotel was small and the rooms were small considering the price and the hotel's rating. The bathroom was clean except for the shower which had a little mold in the grout. Breakfast was a little disappointing - runny scrambled eggs, but very good bread.
The hotel has 2 redeeming factors: (1) The very helpful staff - from concierge to bus boy - the staff was friendly and very accommodating. (2) The location. The hotel is in the heart of Rome's historic center.
I would re-rate the hotel as a good 3 star hotel.
I booked this hotel for our honeymoon and must say it was a excellent decision.The staff were first class and extremely helpful.The management also provided us with a complimentary bottle of Champagne.
The location was outstanding with all the places to see within easy walking distance.
The accomadation was well designed and functional with a warm charm and very clean.
The food was excellent and well presented.
All in all I would recommend this hotel to my friends as a ideal base to soke up the history and tradition that is Rome...
Do not worry about this one!
I wonderful experence from the greeting at the front desk to the helpful bellman loading your bags into the taxi when you leave. We couldn't have asked for more. The location was perfect, we could walk to everything including the Forum, the Collseum, via Vento, Spanish steps, even the Vatican( but that is kind of a long walk). Our room faced the street but noise did not filter in. The breakfast was the best here of all the hotels we stayed at on our trip. My complements to Signor Paolo and his staff in the dining room. The evening meals were served with ample attention and cordiality. A first rate establishment.
Do not hesitate to stay here!

My last day in Italy went by to quick. We visited the colosseum, the Forum, the Vatican, the pantheon once again from inside. As you can imagine we literally swirl through everthing so quickly. The highlights definitely were in Saint Peter's Basilica, were I was able to pray at John Paul"s ...

This morning there was a huge storm but the rain cleared in time for us to visit the Vatican and attend the Blessing of the crowd by the Pope.
