Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Turner Rome
A wonderful hotel
I stayed there from Oct 6-9, 2004 with my husband and 9 yr old son. Our room seems to have been a bit larger since we had a triple room. The bathroom was a little on the small side especially for my husband since he is 6 ft 5 in but no complaints from him on that. The continental breakfast was mediocre at best. I did love the decor in the hotel. The walls in the hotel were upholstered in brocade fabric. The furniture in the baroque style. There are a number of good local restaurants within a 10 minute walk that were fairly inexpensive. The hotel staff was excellent. On checking out I had asked them to get a taxi to take us to Termini Station. The cab drove us to the station and in my hurry I left a package in the taxi. By the time I realized this the taxi had already driven off with another fare. I promptly called the hotel and they offered to locate the cab driver for me and I was instructed to call back in 5 minutes. When I called back the good news was the driver was located and he say he had my package. The bad news was that he was on his way to the airport and it would be 25 minutes before he could return with my package. By then I would be on my way to Florence. To make a long story short the hotel staff went out of their way to get my package to me! I would definitely recommend this hotel.
Comments on our stay at Hotel Turner
We just returned from Rome on 8/31/04 after staying at hotel turner. The rooms were small & the shower was difficult to turn around in,but the decor was very nice. The front desk person in the AM was not very helpful & gave wrong info & directions when asked. But, other than that, it was a nice clean place to stay during our visit. Rome was delightful & very beautiful!
We spent 4 nights here in May 2004. Hotel Turner exceeded our expectations in every way! The location is great if you enjoy seeing Rome on foot. It is perfect if you would rather use a bus or metro system as another reviewer has written. We used both. The staff was outstanding - helpful in every way. Breakfast was good - typical of European continental breakfasts. Ours was a standard room and bath - small, yes. But once again, typical for European rooms in this price catagory. We loved the baroque style - everywhere you look - fabric, tassles, crystal, marble, etc. The neighborhood is unbelievably quiet for being so close to the major attractions. Our bed was extremely comfortable - and after busy days of sightseeing we found our hotel to be an oasis. Not an impersonal, sterile and overrun-with tourists place, but a small, haven of calm in this beautiful, bustling city. For this price range and catagory, we couldn't recommend this hotel more highly!
Gilded Roma at the Hotel Turner
We found the hotel to be exceptional in all ways. The service was excellent, the rooms spacious and comfortable, and the location was close to everything we wanted to see... Basilica di San Pietro, Colloseum, la Via Appia Antica, etc. Highly recommend the Hotel Turner to anyone wanting a taste of Roman grandeur at a reasonable cost.
I'd be surprised if the hotel holds on to its three star rating. It's closer to a 2 star. If they spent more money on improving the bathrooms and essential facilities in the bedrooms and less on gaudy gilding, flash faux baroque decor and marble common areas we would have been satisfied. The location is a little off centre, but not a problem given the great bus service and rasonable proximity to the Rome Termini.
The staff at the Turner Hotel were very friendly and helpful. The hotel itself is charming.
Our shower was extremely small. However, the real problem was that the water went from warm to freezing to scalding within a few seconds time.
There may be other rooms with better showers.
The breakfast was very limited.
Great location. It was quiet but easy access to all tourist attractions via bus, which stopped right outside of the hotel.
Nice clean hotel. Can't go wrong
A clean and pleasant hotel with a good, quick bus link to the centre of Rome. Room rates are fair and we enjoyed a good night's sleep during our stay. Recommended!

... a bit like an infomercial as the good deals were rolled out. We ate lunch with others from the tour in the small square where we were dropped off (the platter we shared was actually a highlight of the day) before meeting the local guide. She led us on a very quick and brief tour of Florence and everyone felt a bit short changed as we didn't go into the museum and see the statue of David or into the Basilica. The guide was a very young girl and we all felt she lacked ...
... mean to say that the human brain is God or that God's greatest creation was this part of us? We were lucky to see the Chapel on a quiet day. We were still packed in pretty tight, but you could find a space where you weren't in constant contact with your neighbours. I even stood in the very center for a few minutes. Our guide said that this is the closest to empty he had ever seen the Chapel. Lucky I guess. Or tour ended soon after and Jessica and I went inside St Peter's ...
... from the in store pizzeria. Duncan is all pizza-ed out though and was just so miserable as he didnt know what he wanted to eat and was beginning to feel the strain of his liited diet.
After lunch we shopped - and bought lots of goodies that Duncan likes so he cheered up immensely.
Then it was off down the A1 to our next destination. ...

The train ride from the airport is about an hour, and as we were on the train, it didn't really settle in that I was here, in Italy again, after 6 years. We passed by countryside, and I tried to take it all in. Finally, upon arriving in Milano ...
