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!

We at least thought some trains would have been running. Instead, we caught a taxi, and farewelled the lovely ladies at the Termini station. Joanna will see them again in Barcelona, but I might have to visit their hometown Aachen sometime next year!

Before leaving Perugia this morning we caught a taxi into the town square to check out some of the sights and some more amazing views. We visited the Palazzo die Priori, an historical building. The building is Italian gothic style and is very unassuming from the front and has a stunning interior, but you will have to take my word ...
