Great Hotel, Good Value for Money
Hotels in Rome are expensive, even in the off season.
The Oceania is Great hotel and good value for money. No frills but who needs them when you are out all day. The rooms are well newly decorated and clean. Breakfast - has a good selection of fresh breads and cake. Staff are helpful and friendly.
We stayed here for 2 nights of a 3 night break in Rome; unfortunately we were unable to book a 3rd night at the hotel. At the time of booking they knew this and offered to help us book a hotel for our last night. Unfortunately the hotel we got was an expensive dump (see Hotel Seiler) I suggest that if you can not book to stay at the Oceania for the whole of your stay in Rome, organize the remaining nights accommodation well in advance, don't wait for the hotel to organize it for you, you'll end up with the left overs.
Loved the Oceania
My wife and I stayed 2 weeks and enjoyed every minute. The staff was great, the rooms well decorated and clean, the bed comfortable, and the location couldn't be better.
Loved this hotel
Stayed at Hotel Oceania for two nights while in Rome in September. Excellent hotel - beautiful, spacious, immaculately clean rooms with air conditioning; convenient location; nice breakfast buffet; helpful and friendly staff. I would definitely stay there again.
Hotel Oceania is the best!
We stayed here for 2 nights upon arrival in Rome and again on our way out of Rome. Very clean, friendly and excellent staff that catered to our every whim. Excellent location within walking distance of many sights and/or subway. Thank you for making our stay in Rome more enjoyable! Would highly recommend Hotel Oceania to anyone traveling to Rome!
Awesome place to stay! Would stay again in a heartbeat!
Awesome hotel! Anna greeted us upon our arrival on September 3rd very nicely and was a god-send when it came to navigating Rome. She walked us through a map of the city to the major sites and also provided us with restaurant recommendations for lunch and dinner. She was SO friendly and helpful! The hotel also arranged a pickup at the Rome airport which was nice since transportation in Rome is a crap-shoot. The driver was there waiting for us with our name on a card and we paid the hotel directly.
The rooms were nicely sized with AC and a TV. The bathrooms were small, but as expected in Europe. Room rate was just 138 euro if paying in cash and mentioning Rick Steves. Well worth your money!!
We wouldn't hesitate to stay with Hotel Oceania again! 5 stars!
The Oceania was a wonderful experience. The rooms are large, clean, and comfortable; the staff is helpful to a fault; the location is fantastic; and the prices are very fair. I will definitely stay here again when in Rome.
We loved Oceania!!
3 nights in Rome - Hotel Oceania, Room 11, E138 per night for a double with a private bathroom, breakfast, small refrigerator, TV which we never turned on, and air-conditioning. This hotel was right off Via Firenze near the police station (close to the Quirinal Palace), consequently we felt very safe wandering around our neighborhood late into the night because there were policemen at little "kiosks" along the streets and also guarding the entrance to most of the buildings around us. It was about a 10 minute brisk walk to the Pantheon.
Our room was spacious for Italian standards and very quiet. The hotel owners were extremely friendly and mapped out routes and shortcuts for us every morning on a map they provided to us. They speak excellent English and there is even a flat-panel plasma TV in the lounge if you want to watch TV in Rome for some reason...?? Breakfast was very nice and served by a maid in the breakfast room from 8am to 10am, though we fudged on the times a bit and it was never a problem. We were most touched to find a bottle of excellent champagne, a note of congratulations, and 2 champagne flutes in out room when we first checked in. They must have checked our original email inquiry which stated we would be on our honeymoon. We will definitely stay here again!!
Very pleasant Stay
Stayed 2 nites last week in Rome. Hotel has recently been remodeled. The room is clean, spacious and nicely decorated. the bathroom is very clean and new. having AC control in the room is best especially in Rome. Breakfast is nice, staff is friendly. Location is about 10-15 min walk from train station, best to take taxi if you have luggage. Close to Metro stop and bus stops.
Wonderful hosts, excellent rooms
Wonderful hosts, excellent rooms...We stayed in three hotels over seven nights during our recent trip to Rome (early March, 2004). This was our favorite hotel.
While the hotel is relatively small with only a handful a rooms and located on the third floor of its building (another hotel is on the fourth floor), we were made to feel like welcomed guests of the hotel's family. The excellent breakfast was like a family occasion.
Its central location close to downtown Rome along with its clean, comfortable, and spacious rooms contributed to the Hotel Oceania being our favorite stay. However we can not say enough about the wonderful staff, who catered to our every need.
We very much appreciated the use of the hotel computer to check our email at no charge. (One of the Rome hotels where we stayed did not provide this service.)
This will be our primary place to stay on all of our future visits to Rome.
P.S. We were graciously given a discount on our room by bringing along the Rick Steves guide book.
Home away from home
From feb. the 13th till the 21st, my wife son 13 years old and I stayed at the Oceania. The owners and staff were more than helpful attending to every matter we had. They will make phone calls for you for any need such as resaurant or tour reservations , or for taxicabs. They are right between two metro stops, and 1 block from Via Nationale with every bus in Rome stopping there. I highly recommend staying here for any length of time.
