Hotel Le Petit
Travel Blogs from Rome
We did all the biggies today. Starting off in the Roman Forum with Rick Steve's as our guide we walked where the Ancient Romans used to congregate, shop and vote. I ran into a colleague of mine from work in Palo Alto, can you believe it? He was the 5th person we ...
... of the outside to build new structures. Just try and take a second and imagine the fact that the majority of what is still standing today is simply the foundation and core of the building that once stood there. That took up the majority of the day so we decided to take a taxi back to our hotel, grab a quick bite to eat, then back to the bus to come home to Firenze! ...
... the Baroque era. The fountain was completed in 1762. The central statue represents Neptune and the side statues symbolize the abundance and the health that water has always given to the city of Rome. Once we collected Sarah, were off to Florence!

Slurpees are none existent here. Babe you'd never survive! We tried some perogies but we must have picked the wrong place as they weren't very good and I couldn't figure out the mystery meat. Oh well :) We went up to Wawal Castle, which is situated ...

Rugby, more than any other sport I have encountered, succeeds in uniting its fans, no matter what team they support or country they are from. You can enjoy a beer together and talk about the match, without fear of starting a fight. At the end of the day, whether your team won or lost, you are still a bunch of brothers who love rugby. It is truly an amazing sport.

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)
