    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Rex Rome

    Tiny room, but okey.

    from

    We booked a double room for relatively low rate, I guess that's why we got a very small room facing nothing but walls. Considering the fact that the hotel is perfectly located very close to the Opera house and facing quiet street even it's just 5~10 minute-walking distance from the Termini train station. Even the staff were friendly and helpful, the air conditioning in our room had a problem at one night. It was fixed next day but at that night we felt cold and could not sleep well.

    The bed was bit small for 3 of us with our 2-yo kid. They did not prepare the room with a baby bed even we had informed in advance, even though it would had been useless anyway since our daughter does not sleep alone in a crib, and above all, the room is too small to be equipped with baby crib!!!

    I rate this hotel as average considering the rate and the location.

    Good stay

    from

    We stayed at the Rex Dec 15-23rd, we enjoyed the Rex.

    The room was large with a king bed, 2 chairs and a table,

    the bathroom was all marble and also quite large. The breakfast

    was elegant with many choices. The location was close to Termini

    we were pleased with the location. We would book again.

    Great hotel

    from

    The location is the best, 15 minutes walking to colosseum, near piazza Republica and S. Maria Maggiore, metro and bus stops. The room was clean and comfortable, quiet. Very good breakfast (eggs with ham, pastries, fruit). Friendly english speaking receptionist.

    Highly recommended!

    Great stay

    from

    The location was the best, on the edge of the historic centre and good metro access to vatican museums north and colloseum to the south.

    The front desk staff could not have be nicer and more accomodating.

    The room was beautiful and as clean as could be and there are lots of great restaurants in the area - ask the concierge to book something for you. Would highly recomend.

    Adorable

    from

    A wonderful hotel and a careful staff. I had a lovely time at the Rex. You will love it!

    Exceeded expectations

    from

    Excellent experience! Location is about a 5-10 minute walk from Termini. To get to the ruins and the vatican and all that, you'll not want to walk. Instead, see Rome the way the Romans see it...on a Vespa! You can rent one for $40 per day right around the corner from the hotel. Believe me, it's the only way to see Rome. So that makes the slightly-out-of-the-way location of the hotel a moot point. Hotel is gorgeous, obviously recently renovated. I cannot say enough about the staff. They are wonderful. I had an early morning flight out of Rome and the Vespa place wasnt open yet for me to return it, so the hotel guy held onto the keys and said he'd call the rental place when they opened to come and pick it up. That's service! Room was nice and big. comfy bed, strong AC, big big bathroom (ladies will love it), nice strong shower, quiet room. Free internet access (on a public Mac with a slow modem). You will love this hotel.

    Central location, quiet and clean hotel

    from

    Situation:

    The hotel is situated next to Termini Station and "Piazza Republica", but it's a quiet and good location. Also near underground ("Metro") and bus stops.

    15 minutes to Colosseo walking.

    30 minutes to Spanish Steps walking.

    Installations:

    Small hotel in a old building, but with good installations, too many stairs but it has 2 elevators.

    Clean rooms a little small, but it's very normal in italian hotels compared with Spain.

    No views.

    Our room has shower and bathtub, sometimes smell, but we know that other rooms only one of the two things (request).

    Posibility transfers to hotel/airport. We (6 people) get to the Fuimicino airport for 70 Eur.

    Staff:

    Very useful and friendly. Good details (apples, biscuits,...).

    Definitively I would return.

    Good Hotel with great location; April 2004

    from

    We stayed at Hotel Rex the 1st and last day of our 2-week trip in Italy. It is only 10 minutes from Termini station, which was extremely convenient to then get to the airport. The hotel is within walking distance of all the major attractions. Staff was VERY friendly and helpful. I would recommend this hotel.

    Peaceful and friendly oasis in the heart of Rome

    from

    We stayed here for 6 nights and can highly recommend it for the following reasons;-It`s a short 10 min walk from the Termini Station, Friendly English speaking staff, a quiet location within walking distance of the Forum and Colosseum. Our room was large, clean and with a en-suite marble bathroom with telephone room service in the bathroom, useful when in the bath. The breakfast room was excellent though small with staff attentive at table. Full English breakfast with plenty of coffee, cereals and large selection of sweet pastries.The only bad point was the lack of hot water at night, our room must of been at the end of the line for hot water.The hotel said they are trying to improve this situation in the future.

    Wonderful Stay

    from

    After reading the previous review, I had to respond. Our family(inluding children of 11, 9 and 7) stayed at the hotel for 10 days in March of 2003. The staff is indeed wonderful. The small dining area is a fine place to start the day. The rooms were large and accomodated our party of 5 easily. We loved the central location. The access to news journals from around the world was wonderful. All in all, we enjoyed our stay immensely and will come back to Rome and the Rex.

    ... sounds coming at you, you can proceed according to what is logical regardless of what is being said. It astounds me how rarely this leads to a misunderstanding.

    After our attempt at shoe shopping, we decided to go have dinner. We went to Miscellanea, just behind the Pantheon. They served us pizza and pasta that was very good. While we ate, a street performer who was singing and playing guitar came and entertained us for quite awhile. The music was good, and we enjoyed it ...
