Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Panama Garden Rome
Lovey Hotel in a green location
My sister and I just come back to a wonderful stay from Panama Garden in Rome. We were very satistfied of the service, our room was large and very nice. The hotel is situated in a green and safe area near "Villa Borghese". Our room was large with nice view quiet and bright. The breakfast was excellent, the staff very friendly and helpful. Nice restaurants in the area and very safe for a walk.
I definitely recommend it to all my friends and family.
What a delight!!
What a delightful hotel!!. I took my mum to Rome for her birthday in January this year. A friend of mine had recommended this hotel as they are a frequent guest. From the minute we arrived to the minute we left we were made to feel like royalty. The staff were always very friendly and helpful; they recommended some great restaurants and shops etc. The hotel itself was spotless and the breakfast was fab! Although we went in a cold month it did not stop us getting about and doing all the sights etc. We will definitely be returning to this hotel but next time we will return in the summer.
Hotel was supposed to be central but was not. It cost roughly £8 to get into town which doesn't sound a lot but when you are making that trip 4 times a day it soon adds to your spending money during a 4 day stay.
Our room was tiny. You just had enough room to walk around the bed. The bathroom was freezing cold and had no curtain so the window looked straight into someones apartment from the flats next door. We asked for another room but was told we would have to pay a supplement.
The surrounded area was very run down and had i been there with female friends i would not have ventoured out around there.
Reception staff were unhelpful and could not even post a postcard for us even though it was stamped. Any questions we had were greeted with a shrug or a dont know.
Would love to go back to Rome but was very disappointed with this hotel.
p.s the 'Limo' we booked from the Airport through them was infact a minibus style vehicle.
We had a very pleasant long weekend from 19 nov
-22 nov 04 the staff were most helpful and the
hotel was very much to our liking. Lovely big
Please choose another hotel
I booked a single SUPERIOR room for 2 nights, but I found nothing superior at all in my room, the entire hotel or the surroundings. My room was exactly 7.02 sq mtr, the corridor 1.44 sq mtr and the bathroom also less then 2 sq mtr. You might wonder why I know the exact figures, but I was so suprised by such a small room that I took the exact measurements. It is the smallest hotelroom I saw ever. The furniture was old and worn and the closet contained exactly 1 (!) coat-hanger. Therefore unusable. I used my bath-foam on the first day, and did not get a new bottle for the next night. View from my room into a dead alley with parked cars. Welcome upon check-in not too friendly. Very depressive hotel. Please go to another hotel in this area like Beverly Hills (+), Borromini (++) or Artemide (+++).
Avoid if you can
We (4 adults / 2 rooms) stayed here in August 2004 after seeing that it was a signature hotel in Thomas Cook's brochure. To say I was disappointed would be an understatement. The rooms are very small - with virtually no closet space for clothes. We ended up draping ours over the chair ! The bath was so small it was like bathing in a bucket. The plug on the sink didn't work. The door handle on the bathroom was attached by one screw so that every time you turned the handle it fell off making closing the door whilst using the toilet impossible. The hotel staff were very unhelpful - we asked on the first morning if they could change a fifty euro note into smaller denomiations to be told that they had no cash after clearly observing them counting money only minutes previuosly. We asked them to recommend a restuarant and the one they said was excellent turned out to be closed ! Breakfast was a shambles with everything constantly running out to the point that you had to keep asking for cereal, milk, bread etc.. There was never a table for four laid out so we had to raid cutlery etc., from other unused tables.
The so called American Bar & Grill which attracted me to the hotel was simply a bookshelf behind a small mantle stocked with a few bottles. The grill aspect was non existant although snacks of pasta could be purchased if you were prepared to wait long enough.
To say it's centrally located is a laugh. We had a five minute walk to the nearest bus stop and then a 15 minute bus journey into the centre. The receptionist did tell us where the bus stop was but failed to mention that we needed to purchase a ticket before getting on.
I didn't expect the five star treatment but I feel I must warn people who are thinking of staying here what they will find.
I would not class this hotel as anything more than a two star - and for the rates charged that is simply not value for money.
Take my advice - find a another hotel - you wont regret it.
MAKE U FEELING HOME!!
An unexpected warm & typical paradise corner right in the centre of a metropole!!! Had a very satisfactory service, great facilities but still quiet and characteristic atmosphere...& staff people are great!!
Whew, WE HAD A GREAT STAY!!!
After reading the reviews we were quite afraid of what to expect at this Hotel. We were pleasantly surprised. The room was small for U.S. standards, but was clean. The balcony was bigger then the room, and since we stayed in early June, it was absolutely lovely. Their gardens & eating facilities were excellent. They did have complementary coffee during weekdays but on weekends they do not. We bought a coffee maker for 12 Euros and had coffee whenever we wanted in our room. They kept our rental car in their private garage and graciously retreived it whenever we asked for it. We found the staff incredibly helpful and accommodating! The hotel sits next to a nice park, and also it is not a far walk to catch a downtown bus. Lovely places to eat on that same stroll too. It was quite warm while we stayed and their air conditioning worked great. I was glad that our stay with them was a success.
My husband and I will never stay at this hotel ever again. There were NO tea/coffee facilities in the room,everything had to be ordered via the room service. When the food or drink did eventually arrive after an hour it was cold.....sorry,not cold---FROZEN !! The staff were ignorant & abrupt.The hotel was nowhere near any of the landmarks,even though the hotel website tells you they are. I don't recommend that anyone stays at this hotel,unless you drink yourself into a stupor and remain comatosed for the entire trip !!
We stayed at the hotel in January the room was tiny and freezing cold the heating didn't work whats more the staff didn't care that much they gave us an extra blanket, the wind was whistling through the cracks in the window, the bar looked like a sideboard someone had found in an old shed, but on the positive side the breakfast was fine.

... smothered in olive oil and herbs) and a cappuccino at the end. There was plenty of food and it was delicious! Monday 16th - this morning we set off for our adventure to the Vatican City. Not really knowing where or how you get in we found a huge line and joined it, reassured by two Canadians this was it. Turns out it was to get into St Stephens basilica, luckily to visit it's free and the line only took 25minutes. The basilica is truly amazing ...
... doors of the Basilica. It was then we noticed the MASSIVE line of people waiting to climb the cupola (dome) of St. Peters. I climbed it in the past and it was remarkable, but there was no way I would stand in that line to do it. Then we exited the Basilica stairs and saw the line for people to get into the Basilica. It was about 11:30 am and the line wrapped around St. Peter’s Square. AROUND THE ENTIRE SQUARE. I was in such shock about the length of the line that ...
... you speak better" which was a nice compliment. Dessert of Tiramisu and Coccio de Nocciola (like a lamington-flavoured cheesecake style of wedge with hazelnut through it - great!!!) finished nicely, and here's hoping the flipping neighbours can shoosh during night-time hours...there're already having a very loud disagreement about something as I type this, a delightful repeat of what we experienced at 2 this morning.
Ahh Italy, we hope for a slightly better show ...

It seemed a very popular place and when we got to the bottom I also noticed the Spanish Embassy. I being very clever, still had no clue where I was but Jo put forward a guess of the Spanish steps, suddenly it seemed obvious I am ashamed to say. Since we had time to kill before we checked in, we set off ...
