      Historical Traveler Reviews Seiler Hotel Rome

      Reasonable price, small rooms

      from

      We stayed at the Seiler Hotel for 4 nights. The location is very central and within walking distance to most of the popular sights, otherwise the Republika Metro is only about a 5 minute walk.

      I agree with those who have said that the rooms are really small, we had room 306 which looked out onto a courtyard of windows. The room was really dark and there wasn't much space around the bed - although it didn't bother us as we only used the hotel as a base and only really slept there. For the price and location if you are only staying for a few days in Rome and aren't planning on being confined to your room the hotel is a good option good (although might be an idea to try get a room at the front of the building).

      The breakfast wasn't great and the coffee was really awful but as someone in an earlier thread said there are a few good places a few steps from the hotel which have really nice fresh pastries.

      The staff were all very pleasant especially the lady who works during the day (sorry forget her name). She was extremely helpful & friendly.

      Value for money

      from

      pros:

      excellent location: very near to Republica metro station.

      very good service: room cleaned daily, towels, toiletries changed daily.

      helpful staff: can speak in english, helpful

      cons:

      very small rooms: we stayed in a double bedroom on the 3rd floor (room 308). there was very little space in the room. the shower was even smaller. it would be impossible for a heavy weight to squeeze in.

      i think it was value for money at 74 a night for a double room.

      Good value for the money

      from

      For 70 euros a night for the 2 of us we didnt expect luxury. The hotel was in a very central location and easy to get to all the sights. The room wasnt big but it was clean and so was the bathroom. We were out all day so we only slept there and there was no problem at all for the 4 nights we stayed there. The receptionists were friendly too.

      When I left I heard an american tourist complain...I dont know what some people expect when they book a 2 star hotel for that price?!

      Hotel Seiler:- A room with a view

      from

      I've just come back from a great weekend in Rome. Stayed at the Hotel Seiler and was very impressed with the hotel in general and helpfulness of the staff in particular. Great location, very quite, and with most of the sights in walking distance. The added benefit of being close to the railway station and metro.

      I was lucky enough to stay in room 405 as recommended in the Lonely Planet guide to Italy. The artwork on the ceiling was truly wonderful.

      The only downside was it rained on Saturday and the performance of the Italian Rugby team. Although I'm not sure either of them were down to the hotel !!

      Last minute deal

      from

      After touring around Europe for a few weeks with my boyfriend, the last destination was Rome. All of the European capitals are pretty expensive and we found this place with a last minute deal. All and all we were happy with the Hotel Seiler. Also we were satisfied with the strategic location, which was well connected with the city's transportation, the prompt and friendly service and we both felt secure and at home. We would definitely stay at this hotel the next time we're back in Rome.

      Value for money

      from

      As an experienced traveller (more than 50 countries around the world , I find myself in complete disagreement with previous reviewers of this hotel. The Hotel Seiler is conveniently located close to the Termini train and bus station, as well as the Republica subway station. As the sights of Rome are scattered around the city, it makes sense to stay in a location such as this. The hotel is situated on a fairly quiet street, opposite the Ministry of Defence, which is guarded round the clock by carabineiri. As a result, the area seemed to be very safe. The hotel is well served by local restaurants (at least half a dozen within 200 metres) and there is a very friendly late-night snack and convenience store just across the road. There is also a good Irish pub on the Via Nationale, less than five minutes away. The Hotel Seiler is situated in an elegant 19th century building (complete with nude statues). Our room, no. 304, was large and airy, and with five beds was ideal for a family. Everything in the room worked, especially the heating - on New Years eve we had to keep the window open! The bathroom was very clean and contained a large quantity of crisp Roman towels (i.e. plain cotton: if you want fluffy towels in Rome, bring your own). The furniture was functional and the TV was small. The breakfast - coffee, tea, juice, croissants - was fine, but go over the road to the snack bar if you want really fresh croissants. Although the hotel was fully booked and it was New Year, the hotel was quiet for most of the four nights we stayed there. The service was friendly and the room was properly cleaned every day. All in all, the hotel provided exactly the kind of services and facilities that I would expect from a city-centre 2-star hotel (we paid around 45 Euros per person per night). Unlike the previous reviewers, I have no complaints at all.

      Smallest room in Rome???

      from

      Friendly and helpful management, central location. However room did not have stated facilities such as hairdryer, mini bar or, errrrr, room. Possibly the smallest and most meagre room I have ever stayed in. The towels were as thin as they could be (the hand towels were actually glass cloths,hmmm). Noisy also, ear plugs were purchased on the first night. There's plenty of accommodation in Rome, find somewhere else.

      Disgusting

      from

      Don't let the hotel's exterior fool you. It is conveniently located 2 short blocks from the metro station and is situated in a well lit area. Exterior of the hotel is beautiful-tall wooden doors, concrete building, grand foyer, marble stairs. Stayed there with another party, and both rooms were filthy. The size of the shower stall was so small and mildew was clearly visible. Both bathrooms had a stale stench of urine. Obviously, floors are not mopped. The towels are paper thin. They reminded me of kitchen dish-cloths. Carpet in our room was not vacuumed. The other room did not have a carpet. Breakfast was simple. Front desk service was very helpful and kind. But the rooms are filthy. I would compare this hotel to a run down version of a DAYS INN (in the US). If you plan on staying here, bring slippers, towels and lysol.

      What an Expensive Dump

      from

      We stayed here for 1 night after 2 nights at the Oceania (a great hotel) we had been unable to get a 3rd night at the Oceania and the staff made arrangements for us to stay here.

      I agree with the other reviewers, we had room 403 which wasn't any better than room 406. The room was dirty, the shower full of mildew, the parquet flooring was broken and dangerous, the walls dirty. If I had been staying here on my own I wouldn't have felt safe. Breakfast was inedible, stale bread, cold coffee and tea. I don't understand why it appears in so many guide books, it's not even cheap (Euro 119). The only good thing is that the staff at reception are friendly.

      In summary all I can say is Do Not stay here

      Grand entrance...terrible hotel

      from

      We Stayed in July 2004. We booked this hotel through ryanair's website so assumed it would be OK. Once we had passed through the opulent entrance and went up the marble staircase we realised that the hotel in fact only occupies 1 or 2 floors of this building. Our room? Number 306 which had been broken into as a previous reviewer has commented. Door STILL not properly secured. Windows in the bathroom and bedroom had busted locks and could not be securely closed - despite the fact that other guests could step through their own window into ours due to the shape of the building. We had to take all our valuables with us at all times. Air conditioning was an ordinary fan, the room itself only slightly larger than the bed, shower was tiny and covered in mildew, breakfast was quite simply the worst tea and coffee we have ever tasted; room had only 1 powerpoint so either charge your phone or use the fan - you can't do both. I know it was only 2 stars but it didn't even deserve one. Location was convenient for the central station but this area is not really convenient for most of the sights in Rome and tiring walks home concluded each day.

We explored the village and had dinner in a delightful ristorante with a wine list 3 inches thick in a beautiful leather bound notebook. ...
