Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Rex Rome
Tiny room, but okey.
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.
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.
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.
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.
A wonderful hotel and a careful staff. I had a lovely time at the Rex. You will love it!
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
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.
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.
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.
Very useful and friendly. Good details (apples, biscuits,...).
Definitively I would return.
Good Hotel with great location; April 2004
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
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.
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.

... enclosure with a lion in a fair fight to the death.... And it was even free to the spectators apparently...
But I was fascinated by the architecture, and the enormity of the task of building it back in a time when they had no machinery, only a few basic tools, but I guess, a lot of slave labour....
I had forgotten ...
... we get to Naples to find while we can get to Pompeii, we cannot get back that day - the local trains don't run past 1pm....gutted and grumpy we turn around and head back to Rome... Arriving in Rome we head for the Trevi fountain. Another bust. It's completely covered in scaffolding and can see a horses head and a hoof poking out. Still heaving but nothing to see even though you could walk across it on scaffolding. We declined and headed ...
... seeing most sites last time, we don't have many must-do's this visit, but definitely the Catacombs of Santa Callixtus are on our list as we didn't get time to see it last trip. We also want to return to the Campo Di Fiori, we love this little market where the locals and visitors buy their fruit, vegetables, flowers, oils and vinegars, liqueurs, mini espresso coffee machines and cups and lots more. The accommodation isn't bad (we've definitely had worse) and it has ...
... getting attention. In Venice on steps of Bridge of Sighs a woman lay prostrate face down seemingly sobbing. In Rome, they are no less dramatic and there is something about the behaviour that cripples are in fact cripples. They may attend the same Drama School. We had a guide take us for a tour of the Coliseum. We had quick entrance through only one gate and one exit. Others have to queue for over an hour for tickets and the heat, need for comfort stop ...
... the address of our apartment where the owner of the apartment would meet us outside. We waited. And waited. And waited. And probably after 20-30mins of standing staring at what the cab driver told us was the address we decided we needed to do something. I had the woman's mobile number and we located a pay phone to call her. Rome pay phones are not simple pay phones. It's 0.10€ to send an email, 0.20€ to send an SMS, and free for an emergency call there were no instructions ...
