Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Le Petit Rome
We stayed there for four nights. It is cute and clean but if security is an issue then this hotel is not for you. We came home on two occasions to find the hotel completely open and the night porter asleep next to an empty bottle of wine. We couldn't wake him so we went behind the counter and helped ourselves to the keys. Another day the maid had left ours and another couples room open with all the bags for anyones taking. The phones were not working so we had to use the main phone in the lobby so privacy was a problem. Size.. our room was tiny, for the amount they charged a night it was overpriced, they didn't seem to care that we were so dissappointed.
Decent but noisy
This hotel was ok. The rooms were small but very clean, with a nice private bath. Most of the staff was very nice. My only complaint was the noise. Many of the rooms are on the front and you hear all the noise from the busy street at the corner. The noise usually lasts until about 1 am and then the trash truck comes by. This noise may be normal for any Rome hotel, but I can only judge this one. Also, the night shift hotel staff listens to the tv quite loudly and you can hear the tv's of neighboring rooms. Location is good. A decent place to stay if you're not a light sleeper.
Very cozy and crazy
its a very nice hotel, the room was very clean with the parquet for walking peace, and its was with a crazy colours.The room are like a 4-5 star hotel the building is fantastic, its completely white like the Wedding cake on Venezia square. we'll turn at Hotel Le Petit, sure!
Stayed 2 nights at this hotel. Great location, clean room and adequate breakfast. We had the only room with a large balcony, and it was quiet and charming. The hotel staff was informative. On our last day, we checked out and they held our luggage until 8pm because we had a 10:40 overnight train to Venice. Only problems to mention are the air conditioning wasn't very strong and we left all our toiletries in shower and they didn't inform us when we returned at 8pm even though they only had 6 rooms rented and the same staff was working when we returned that night. Luckily, we had extras to last us the rest of the week!
Adored Le Petit
We stayed at Le Petit on three separate occasions during our month in Italy this summer, and we couldn't have picked a nicer place. My husband and I had a double, and when my daughter joined us, we had a triple. Both rooms were attractive, clean, and charming. The triple was on the corner and had a colonnaded terrace with table and chairs. The breakfast service was very good, with food and coffee served by a beautiful woman who looked like she's just stepped out of an Italian movie. With its proximity to the train station, the Metro, and all the sights, this place was a terrific place to stay. I would go back there in an instant!
Cozy, clean with a friendly staff
My husband and I stayed at Le Petit in September '02 and would highly recommend it. The staff is so friendly and helpful with recommendations of what to do and see. The rooms are small, but nicely decorated with clean, private baths. I thought breakfast was fine, great capuccino. Best of all, it is within walking distance of all the major sites, as well as Piazza della Repubblica and Termini Station, which makes it easy to catch a train to the next city!
Quiet, Clean, Reasonable
Le Petit occupies a single floor of a ~6 floor building with a tiny elevator. We found the service to be friendly, the rooms clean, and the prices reasonable. However, the breakfast could have been better. The location is convenient to Repubblica metro station, main bus lines, dining, and limited shopping.
Overall we would recommend Le Petit for those on a budget, but there may be better deals to be found (Hotel Aberdeen is a little more $$, but was quite a bit nicer)

Flying hungover is not fun. Flying hungover with two hours sleep and a ****** off Mum and sister will definitely be avoided at all costs in the future!
I can say that was one of the most torturous trips I have had to endure, and would prefer the Indian lady on my flight to London, whacking me from behind and kicking my chair, rather than the searing head pain, head spins, episodes of nausea and the concentration needed to avoid throwing up on the plane. I think Mum and Cait ...
... and said we really were pretty close, we could probably walk it. We were no longer pulling the roller bags and we really didn’t know where the bus stop was. I was a little hesitant only because we didn’t know the areas we would be walking through and it was dark. I wanted to opt for a cab.
Jeff convinced me we could do it and off we went. We started noticing some familiar landmarks and it took us about 20 minutes, but ...
... Roman monuments such as the Colosseum with an abundance of archaeological/religious relics and priceless works of art.
After a lunch of supposedly, the best pizza in the Vatican (i'm sure some of the students would agree), we made our way for a walking tour of the parts of Rome we have yet to see. We first visited the shops (Where i'm sure many students spent a fortune) and the Castle St. Angelo which was the fortress built to ...
... stop at Colosseum and we were met by Jonathan the Brazilian sales man for small tours of the Colosseum, Roman Forum and Palentine! BINGO! The Italian guide was tricky to understand at first but once you got used to her accent things became a lot clearer, unlike the weather which seemed to just get hotter. It was lovely to hear her knowledge, especially if she stopped in the shade! Mild confusion as they shut the Colosseum doors, however ...
... that they can see the city. The kids are still asleep, so Colleen and I head out in search of a place to get a good cafe and enjoy the morning.
We circle the blocks near the hotel...Colleen thought she saw something last night that would be good. After a few passes around the area, we decided to get something near the hotel. We take a table, and order due cappuccini and croissants (in Italy, called cornetto). The cappuccino is 3.5 euros, ...
