Welcome Piram Hotel
Travel Blogs from Rome
We walked into central Rome through the narrow cobblestone streets. The drivers have little respect for pedestrian crossings and pedestrians in general - even when you have a green walking signal you take your life into your own hands when you step onto the street. As we neared the Trevi Fountain (constructed in 1732 by Nicola Salvi) it was easy to …
Glenys and I left Perth at 22.30 Tuesday night to fly to Rome. We arrived in Dubai at 5.30 am, the temperature was already 33 degrees and it looked very hazy outside. We went up to the Emirates lounge for about 3 hours before our flight to Rome. We were on an A380 plane, such massive wings and engines. We had a very smooth 6 hour flight to Rome …
... character. The kayaks we hired were a brilliant way to have a good look around.
Italians love their food and wine, and they are pretty good at making it too. One night at the camp ground we got invited by a family to sample some of their best wine. They spoke little English and we spoke a lot less Italian but as the night went on the conversations got better. Italians do have great wine!
Italians are also great entrepreneurs and so was the local ...
... They have a cute glass elevator that just held me, our four big suitcases, and the young man, who had fallen down the steps a couple of weeks ago and almost broke his foot. He is still limping quite a lot. We asked for the wifi password and he gave us a slip of paper with it, along with a map of Rome, with the location of the hotel circled. After we all checked in with our various electronic devices, we decided to go out in search of ...
... NH Hotel" which was expensive at 120 Euro but here in Rome I don't think I would have got it any cheaper!!
After sitting on the net for over two hours trying to sort out ferry services and Honda dealers I finally gave up and went for a very long walk into "Ancient Rome".
The city was quite a long walk from the hotel but only once I got to the old city and got a map did I realize this stupid satnav system took me on yet another wild goose chase ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsWelcome Piram Hotel Rome
The hotel is located very close to the central station which made it really easy to catch a metro to all attractions include the Vatican! The hotel gave us free dinner on our first night in Rome. The staff is very helpful and the rooms are equally comfortable. A pleasant experience!

Historical Traveler Reviews Welcome Piram Hotel Rome
Very nice hotel. Great location (very close to the bus and train station). The staff is very helpful (especially Jaime who speak English, Spanish and Italian). Each room has its separace AC unit. We would stay again at this hotel.
On approaching the hotel we felt a little apprehensive as it appeared a bit run down and grey from the exterior, however as soon as we entered reception our fears were allayed by the beautiful furniture , artworks and the professionalism of the staff who wre polite helpful and knowledgable . Our room was situated at the hotels other building 2 doors down . The room was spacious , very clean and comfortable with a new bathroom with double shower , basin ,toilet , hairdryer and bidet. The room was furnished with beautiful antique furniture ,air conditioning, minibar and self coding safe . The bed was large and comfortable and the room was very quiet .
Perfect place to rest.
We stayed 4 nights and it was so nice to have such a relaxing restful place to go after a busy day of sightseeing,with feet so tired that they were ready to fall off. How pleasant, to be greeted by smiling faces at reception and be given advice on the best places to eat. The room was great, it had a very Roman feel to it and WHAT A BED. It could have slept 4 people. OK so the breakfast was not wonderful, but there was plenty to eat. It was so easy to find all the sights from the location of the hotel. Termini is just a little walk away, so taking a bus from anywhere in the city marked Termini, had us home in a flash. We will definitly stay there again when we visit Rome.
A real Roman palazzo
At the beginning of March we spent 5 nights in Welcome Residences near Termini Station. The front side of the building is not very nice, but when you enter you'll find yourself in a real palazzo: marble, pictures, spacious rooms, clean stairs etc. The apartments are newly renovated, everything is clean, elegant and friendly. The location is also very good because it's absolutely in the center but closer to Piazza Reppublica then to Termini Station. We liked the breakfast too. The backside of the building has just been renovated so I guess that the front side is going to be renovated too that's why I suggest to be informed on it before making a reservation.
This guesthouse is lovely, good value for money and located a stone's throw from the Termini. The refurbishment mentioned on other reviews is still being carried out. I had a refurbished room and it was on the front of the building. The noise from the traffic outside was relentless but once the ear plugs were in I slept soundly! Breakfast was adequate but toast, fruit and a selection of cheese/cold meals would have been nice. My friend had a double room at the back which was smaller than mine and this was refurbished. She also suffered from noise problems from the premises backing onto the Welcome Residences and couldn't get to sleep some nights. Staff are very pleasant and they recommended a fantastic restaurant called Ristorante Leonetti. The food was excellent and reasonably priced.
Having spent 2 nights in this hotel, I may not be fully qualified to give the definitive review but I thought I would share my thoughts as the hotel could do with some more reviews as it only has 3 at the moment.
I stayed at this hotel for 6 days in early January. I chose the hotel primarily for the price and its location. It is a pretty okay hotel considering the value and it does offer few nice features such as spacious room (bigger than most single hotel rooms, but no carpet), double bed for single use, LCD TV, marble bathroom with a jacuzzi tub (mine didn't work though), etc. something not easily found elsewhere within the same hotel range. By the way, this hotel also operates an apartment building at another location for family/group guests but obviously I had no way to know what the facilities look like.
Great location at a reasonable price
I stayed at the Welcome Residences for 9 nights in mid September 2005. It is an excellent location, because the central location allows you to use it as a base for exploring a little wider. The surrounding area can be a little odd, but generally it's pretty safe. The breakfast is quite rubbish though, reconstituted orange juice, pastries, sour milk and doughnuts were the usual fare, so we didn't bother going after day 2.
The room was spacious and well fitted, the only downside was the amount of construction work going on above our heads from 8am onwards. I would recommend this hotel to other travellers.
Great hotel, but be aware of restaurant in the same street
I stayed three days in Rome at Welcome Residences in Giovanni Amendola 7, near Termini Train Station. It is a great hotel for the price. Big room, big bathroom, huge double bed, flat screen tv, silence. Breakfast could be improved though.
If you stay there, DO NOT GO TO THE RESTAURANT IL BERAGLIERI in the same street, number 18. Food was awful, a total rip off, and when we told the owner that the steak was frozen minced meet, pasta had a hair, and vegetables were remicrowaved, he almost hit us!!
I ended up at the police station!
