      Historical Traveler Reviews Montecarlo Hotel Rome

      Clean, Comfortable, Safe


      Located near many Embassies and in walking distance of the metro and rail station. Rooms are an adequate size with good size beds. Bathrooms are spotless and have a cool jacuzzi massage/steam shower. My only complaint was that breakfast comprised of powdered, cheap, fruit juices and lousy coffee. The rest was standard Continental Breakfast Fare. The bar across the way is better. So stay for the room, but not the breakfast. Oh and staff was quite friendly.

      Great hotel - recommend to anyone


      This hotel is a little gem and all the previous posts on it being quaint, clean and overall good value for money are very true! The staff are very friendly and the rooms, although a little small, where very well decorated and exceptionally clean. There is indeed a lot of restaurants to choose from nearby, so there is something for everyone. My only complaint is the location of the hotel is just a bit too far away from some of the main tourist areas to visit in the evening for bars and clubs after a hard days siteseeing. These weren't a problem in the day on foot or via the metro, but after a shower and a relax it is too far to walk again. If your not bothered about nightlife then this is the place for you, but I think we might stay a bit more central next time. In summary great hotel for a visit to rome if your not into clubbing!

      Lovely, clean, comfortable hotel


      We spent four nights in March 05 at the Montecarlo. The staff were very friendly and helpful (we were supplied with a complimentary guidebook). The rooms are comfortable and very clean. The breakfasts were good, plenty of choice, fruit juices, yoghurt, cereals, delicious pastries and croissants, tea and coffee. We were on the top floor and the lift worked perfectly - as long as the iron safety gate had been closed properly by the previous occupants! Would definitely recommend staying here - lots of restaurants close by (the best meal we had was at Babbas).

      Good Value, Clean Hotel


      We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in March 2005. It is a small, very pleasant and very clean hotel which is near the British Embassy and in walking distance of the station. Rooms are an adequate size with good size beds. Bathrooms are spotless and have a jacuzzi massage/steam shower which is perfect for relaxing after a days sightseeing around Rome. Both bathrooms and rooms are very clean. The lift is unusual and quaint and adds character to the hotel - it also worked the whole time we were there!!All in all a very nice place to stay and good value too!

      Great service, friendly staff, conveniently located


      Fine place, very nice, comfortable, cozt, close to banks, bus stops, train stations.

      One 2 ocassions the lift did not work and it was quite a walk up to the 4th floor.

      Fine place to stay overall. Strongly recommend.

      Elegant - warm budget hotel


      Nice location for visiting all tourist attractions.

      Friendly and helpfull staff.

      Warm room decoration.

      Comfortable rooms - large relaxing beds.

      Cheap rates.

      We enjoyed our visit in Rome during Christmas 2004. The hotel accomodation helped us a lot because the weather was not so good.

      The staff helped us a lot because we had our 2-year-old baby with us.

      Whenever we visit Rome, we will stay in this hotel for sure!!!

      Nice little hotel; good location


      This was our first visit to Rome. We found this nice little hotel tucked away in the embassies area; traffic noise is not a problem here. The bus stop is approximately 3 minute walk and Termini is 10 minute walk. If you don't have much luggage, it's an easy walk from Termini. There are many little restaurants in the area.

      The room was simple, but comfortable and clean. The bathroom was very clean as well. The rooms are airconditioned, which in early September, is a joy to have.

      Breakfast was average; cereals, juices, coffee, tea, and pastries. The breakfast menu could use a little more imagination.

      We paid under 85.00 euros per night and it was a great value!! The staff is also very nice! Oh, there's a lift available as well!

      Very Satisfactory


      We spent four nights in the Hotel Montecarlo in July, 2004. We found the staff to be friendly and courteous. Our room was lovely - everything was very clean. We loved the quaint old black wrought iron elevator, however it decided to quit working the morning we checked out of the hotel. We had to carry all our luggage down 4 flights of stairs!! Breakfast was very adequate and I really liked the coffee they prepared. With the exception of the elevator experience, it was just fine - we would stay there again.

      Nice hotel


      We recently returned from a trip to Italy in May 2004 where we spent 4 nights at the Montecarlo Hotel in Rome. The rooms were clean and ours was reasonable sized although my sister had a much smaller double room than us. The hotel has a quaint old fashioned open gated elevator like in the movies but this one was quicker than most modern elevatiors in the states. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Hotel has a small but adequate Bar/lounge area -the desk clerk doubles as bartender if you want a coffee/beer/wine etc. The breakfast room was downstairs, small but again enought since it is a small hotel. The hotel is located on a small somewhat quiet street about 4-5 blocks from the main train station. We walked around Rome a lot and this location wasn't the best but it was close enought to the bus stops/metro when we needed them. Several good local resturants/bars around the neighborhooh as well as other shops. Overall we enjoyed the stay.

      Negatives- not handicapped assessable at all so if you can't handle steps, skip this place. There are 3-4 steps up from the steet to the lobby, 2 steps down to the wing with the elevator and the breakfast room is in the basement and the elevator doesn't go there. Another negative, there is a very discreect x-rated movie house next door on the side street. We never saw people coming or going but we did notice it when we walked by. This wouldn't stop us going back but I just wanted people to know it was there. The neighborhood was very safe as there are several embassy's in the surrrounding blocks and police cars can be seen guarding them around the clock(british, russian, turkish to name a few)

      A nice small hotel


      Hotel Montecarlo is a nice, small hotel near by stazioni termini. To the next underground station is approximately 5 minutes to go. The rooms are small but comfortable and very clean. Breakfast was o.k. and typical italian. Satelite-TV was also includet. For the low price it was o.k.

Besides the pizzas, Mario introduced us to other Italian dishes- one was a assortment of fried battered goodies (fried mozzarella? Okay!) and the other, Zucchini flowers stuffed with anchovy and mozzarella. The flowers were a star of the show.

      That wonderful dinner would bring to a close another night in Rome. Tomorrow, we had planned something ...

      • The past 3 days have been a very big blur filled with excitement! After arriving to Rome, we were picked up at the airport by the American University of Rome's Resident Life staff and transported to our apartment. Our apartment is very big and homey! We have many Italian neighbors and a few other study abroad students (I will upload pictures of the apartment soon). The last few days have been packed ...

After rehearsals, the entire group (around 80 of us) went out to dinner for a family style meal at a restaurant across the street. Everyone got dressed up, and it was nice to be somewhere other than the hotel basement, talking about something other than music, with everyone all at once. After dinner, Lauren, Teresa and I used the facemasks tht ...

      ... and closes them...this happened to us once during our stay...we couldn't use the old elevator because someone had gotten off on the top floor and not closed the doors. So anyway, the doors to the room are old fashioned, and there's the outer door and then inner doors to block out sound, I guess. The ceiling is probably 16-18 feet high...with a crystal chandelier hanging in the center...the window is a double window that opens without a screens in Europe!...and ...
