Historical Traveler Reviews Welrome Hotel
Great place to stay in Rome
My husband and I stayed at the Welrome hotel for three nights, and had a wonderful time. The room is nice enough -- small, as you would expect in Rome, but comfortable with a large opening window and a small table and chairs in addition to the king sized bed. The best thing about the hotel is Mary and Carlo, who are more helpful than you can imagine. They directed us to an inexpensive place to eat (that we could NEVER find on our own!), to the best gelato, to the best places to visit, etc., and gave us tips on timing to best beat the crowds. We also learned the history of places in Rome and were directed to some churches with wonderful art and sculptures that we may not have visited otherwise. The location is very convenient, close to the train station, metro, buses, and within walking distance
of most main attractions. There is a grocery store nearby, as well as
numerous internet cafes. We would definitely stay here again, and would recommend this hotel to others. Word is getting out, and you need to book early!
Welrome - Hidden Gem!
We did not know what to expect with this hotel selection. Our search for a great hotel at a reasonable price in Rome seemed impossible but we decided to go for it based on reviews here.
The hotel is located very close to Terimni Station (about 6 blocks). Mary and Carlo were wonderful and helpful and encouraged us to save money by going to the supermarket a few blocks away. Our hotel room had a little dorm size fridge and we took full advantage by stocking up on bottled water and snacks.
The room was so clean it was shocking! The bathroom was at least twice the size of the bathrooms in the other hotels we stayed at in Italy. We were afraid the street noise would be a problem, but there were two shutters and the window to block out everything. The in-room air-conditioner/heater can be programmed.
Mary and Carlos helped us book museum reservations (Borghese Gallery) and ask for information (Roman Forums), in Italian.
Their concern doesn't stop the moment you check out either. We had left some items in our room. Mary, knowing we were airport bound using the Leonardo DaVinci train, bagged the items, found the train, track and carriage we were in...to return the items.
We were left speechless.
I would recommend this hotel for the mere fact that the owners want you to have an enjoyable stay in Rome.
¡Mi hermana estuvo en el Welrome a principios de agosto y se lo pasó en grande! El hotel está bien situado, sólo a pocos minutos de la estación de trenes de Termini, y es limpio y moderno. El baño es moderno y la habitación tiene aire acondicionado. También hay una nevera en la habitación, lo cual fue muy adecuado (¡además hay un supermercado o dos minutos de ahí para poder llenar la nevera!) Hay muchísimos bares y cafeterías cerca de ahí por lo que no supuso ningún problema el hecho de que no hubiera desayuno. La gente que dirige el hotel es maravillosa, amable y muy atenta. En resumen disfrutamos cada momento de nuestra estancia en el Welrome. Natalie, Londres.
Maravillosa estancia, gran sitio, personal atento
Las habitaciones son espaciosas y limpias. Mary y Carlo estaban disponibles para darte sugerencias sobre los sitios de interés y dónde ir. Al final de un largo día por Roma resultaba agradable volver a un entorno tan acogedor y atractivo. Recomendaré el Welrome a cualquiera que visite Roma.
We enjoyed our stay at Welrome very much. Mary and Carlo were excellent hosts. Both have very good command of English. They offered advice on places to see, places to eat and how to get there. Mary and Carlo were very friendly and caring to two strangers.Welrome (short for Welcome to Rome) is close to Termini station, supermarkets, historical sights and transport, both train and buses. The room was quiet, even though it was facing the street. It was clean and large enough for a comfortable stay and suited our budget. We would definitely go there again. An added bonus is the restaurant Volpi de Molises next door, which is open late. It was wonderful to come to very good food and just relax after a long day of sight seeing. There were regular locals having dinner or drinks.

Wonderful Stay, great location, helpful staff
The rooms are spacious and clean. Mary and Carlo were always on hand to give great cost-saving advice on sightseeing, eating and travel. At the end of a long day around Rome, it was nice to come back to such a friendly and inviting environment. I will recommend Welrome to anyone visiting Rome.
An Admirable Hotel
The hotel is well situated near to the termini, it is clean, the rooms are en suite, is comfortable and has a fridge and safe in each bedroom.
Carlo and Mary who run the hotel speak perfect English and are kind and helpful; they are both a veritable encyclopaedia of knowledge, be it places to visit or dine at or even which bus to catch.
My wife and I used the hotel as a base to explore Italy, the location close to the termini was ideal for this, I think that Carlo and Mary were slightly taken aback by the vast distances that we travelled (although they were far too polite to say so), for example on one day of our holiday we caught a train to Naples, local train to Sorrento, bus all the way around the Amalfi Coast to Salerno, where we caught a train back to Rome and still we had time to have dinner in one of the nice Restaurants recommended by Carlo and Mary
Welrome - home away from home, hidden gem!
In a sea of merely good hotels, Welrome absolutely stands out as a GREAT hotel for one MAJOR reason: it's proprietors. Mary and Carlo run tiny Welrome hotel with so much care and give you so much attention you might think you paid a fortune to book your room. Or to the contrary, you might think you paid nothing since you're staying with family. They are extremely helpful and were almost like doting parents - our favorite part of the stay was their tips on where to go and what to avoid, how to get there, where to eat, and pretty much anything else you'd care to know. Ok, now on to the hotel itself:
- Somehow, it felt like home
- Excellent, helpful, courteous, almost doting staff (did I mention this already?)
- Very clean rooms
- Double-pane soundproof windows and locking shutters to completely drown out sound
- Air conditioning
- Bathroom well-appointed with hair dryer, soap, shampoo
- Key-operated safe for your valuables
- Small refrigerator
- Dining table and 2 chairs
- If you're from the U.S., there are 110V outlet in the bathroom for your own hair dryer or shaver
- No noise from outside or neighboring rooms
- Hair dryer did not work too well
I've kept this as objective as possible and yet I cannot think of any cons or anything that bothered us (it is entirely likely that the good things never made us notice). Overall it was undoubtedly a great experience -- you want to book in advance (I think they have only 4 rooms).
My sister stayed at the Welrome at the beginning of August and had a lovely time ! The hotel is well situated, only a few minutes from the Termini train station, and is clean and modern = modern en suite bathroom and air conditioning.
There was also a 'fridge in the room, which was very convenient (plus there's a supermarket 2 minutes away to stock up the fridge!). There are loads of coffee bars in the vicinity so it didn't really matter that breakfast was not provided.
The people who run the hotel are wonderful - friendly and very helpful.
All in all we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Welrome.
Home in Rome!
This sums up our feelings about the wonderful Welrome Hotel. Its proprietors, Mary and Carlo, dedicated themselves to every last detail to make our stay in Rome comfortable, enjoyable, and rewarding. They explained that the "Wel" in the name of their hotel stands for "Welcome", and they spare no effort in realizing the promise of that name for their guests.
We quickly came to regard them not as proprietors but as fairy godparents or at least a favorite aunt and uncle--parting with them truly had a feeling of family separation. Any request we made regarding directions, restaurants, places of interest, etc. was immediately met with copious advice, maps, brochures, handwritten notes, phone calls--whatever it would take to provide the maximum security and enjoyment of the experience in question. It is hard to stop praising this loveable couple. The hotel itself was admirably suited to our needs (a retired professional couple traveling with their adult son). It is small, modest, perfectly located, nicely decorated, has good beds and AC, and pleasant window views of a small street active with pedestrians but little motor traffic during the day and quiet at night. The Welrome will be our first choice for any future visit to Rome.

We headed to Rome via Orvieto. There isn't really much there. It's just a small town on top of a mountain (you have to catch the train up there). Once again cobbled streets with old buildings.

We walked through the Sistine Chapel again and then headed to St. Peters Basilica. We admired the Pieta again and a lot of things we had already learned about from Rick Steves. The tour took us into the Crypt where we saw previous Pope’s burial spots and could look up through the grates to see the magnificent dome.

The Pantheon is a phenomenal building in itself, but with the surrounding buildings, the fountain, the people, animals, and sounds and overall feeling it gives off, I think I now know why I love it here, and it's 'all of the above plus more.'
