Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Romae Rome
Good Budget Hotel!
The Hotel Romae is a short easy walk from the main Rome train station and a welcome sight to the jet lagged. They let us check in about 11am and the room was ready! So was the shower and comfortable bed. The rooms are a reasonable size by Rome budget hotel standards. The rooms and bathrooms were kept very clean. The sights are easily within walkable range. An excellent value for the money.
Incredible value for money
We stayed two nights elsewhere in Rome for the same room rate!!).
Professional, kind and courteous staff. Thank you so much for adding to our wonderful experience of Rome. You can be assured that I will
recommend Hotel Romae to friends and family.
Romae - a disappointment
The Romae Hotel as described on various websites seemed charming, and we anticipated comfortable, 'charming' accommodation. Our reaction at first sight of Romae was 'we are definitely not staying here' - a shabby entrance, dirty floor. The entrance is shared by three hotels, and the Romae Reception ('chek-in') is upstairs - nice office, friendly staff but very small, no seats. The Bar, virtually part of Reception, is tiny and was not open during our stay. Our room had three comfortable beds, nice bathroom, but was so dark that even in daylight we had to have the main light on. There was no extractor fan in the bathroom - we asked to have that looked into, and were assured that it would be, but it wasn't.
The hotel is under re-construction, and the ceiling in the bathroom had not been completed, nor was breakfast available in the hotel itself - it was available in a restaurant two doors away, which was all right, although the breakfast itself was slightly hit and miss - the coffee machine was out of order for two of the three days we were there, putting the lone waitress under a lot of pressure.
I stayed in a hostel in Fuengirola (Spain) a couple of years ago, and based on that experience, would rate the Romae more as a hostel than a hotel. 'Home from home' it is not. Perhaps when the renovation is finished, things will be different, but I think that if a hotel is under construction, that should be made clear to prospective guests. As a hostel, fine, as a hotel - I won't be rushing back.

Musing #1: I am beginning to cross the street with confidence. Itīs quite intimidating at first because the traffic here is a bit crazy. Iīve decided to attempt to follow the locals, but there are many times when I am simply not brave enough. The speed with which the motorcycles, mopeds, and cars maneuver around the insanely narrow streets is rather astonishing. Musing #2: Cobblestones are entirely too unforgiving on the ...
