“Convenient and Quiet”
This hotel was on the outskirts of Rome by Villa Borghese. The train and bus were 50meters rom the hotel and very convienent for transportation. The hotel also has metro passes. The hotel staff spoke English and were very helpful. The morning breakfast was very nice and all the staff were very pleasant helpful. I will definitely stay there again next time I am in Rome.
“Well-kept, friendly hotel just off the Roman metro (commuter line)”
The staff was polite, gracious, and welcoming; housekeeping was efficient without being invasive of personal space or belongings; and breakfast was delicious (fresh-baked cornetti/croissants every morning at 7:30). Getting there was a breeze compared to much of the navigating we did that week - a straight shot on the Ferrovia (commuter rail) from Flaminio/Piazza del Popolo to La Celsa. It was an easy ride to get to Rome but provided a quieter location to sleep or rest on a hot afternoon. Our room was small but clean; our only complaints were the small shower stall and aging mattress. In terms of local neighborhood, there wasn't much nearby - the exception being a wonderful ristorante/pizzeria one metro stop towards the city (Labarro Station), co-owned by an Italian and a New Yorker. All in all, Flaminius is a fantastic place to stay: convenient, safe, affordable, and pleasant. We would go back in a heartbeat.
“Off the beaten path...”
It is, as directions say, 200 meters from the train station. The hotel's electricity was out when we got there, the beds were hard. That is it, all the negative. The staff was wonderful, polite, extremely helpful with directions and transportation. They also spoke English very well. The room was European basic, but SPOTLESS, as was the rest of the hotel. Beautiful tile in the bathroom, a large shower with good water pressure and very hot water if desired. The breakfast was fresh and delightful with: fruits&vegtables; meats&cheeses; pastries,breads,&cereals; a variety of beverages, great before a long day of walking. When the electric was working again,(didn't take long), the air conditioning was up to American standards. Very helpful in 104 degree temperatures. There was a small refridgerator in the room. A small town square within walking distance. There were several small markets and restaraunts with good prices and service compared to Rome. A bank with 24hr ATM with good exchange rate. It felt like going home after a long day of walking and site-seeing. Very quiet, peaceful.
out of town but easy to get to, 1 euro get you any where in Rome in about 15 min by train and metro, breakfast was good and staff was very helpfull and they spoke english, only draw back was plumbing, had a slip oder in bathroom still Id stay there again
“Cheap and Cheerful”
The Hotel was cheap and cheerful. While not anywhere near the city centre and requiring a 20 minute train to get to (though the journey is very easy), the price reflects this location. The air con is good, the breakfast bad. The staff are very helpful and gave us good directions.
The hotel was clean and free breakfast was awesome. Beds were uncomfortable, internet was broken, Tv selection was poor. We HIGHLY recommend Mama'a restaurant 1k down the road!!!
“Very little sleep”
We stayed at Hotel Flaminius as we enjoyed our honeymoon. We were looking for a hotel close to public transportation. Pros: -within a 5 minute walk from two urban train stops -close to Prima Porta (bus hub area, so there are many restaurants, and cafes-with excellent ice cream) -reasonable rate -very friendly front desk staff -ac unit in individual rooms, and controllable by the occupants -rather spacious washroom in our room Cons: -distance from Rome (about 10 urban train stops on the Viterbo line, accessed from Piazza Flaminio- close to the Piazza del Popolo). But at least in July and August the urban train line ran until 10:45. The Roman subway lines closed at 9 due to overnight construction. -terrible beds -breakfast was the same thing every day, and I have stayed in many European hotels and while there is little variation in what they serve for breakfast, it is usually better fare than what was offered here -decor in our room was hideous -the elevator/lift was old! I definitely would not go back again and I would not recommend this hotel to anyone!
“thank god i was not staying for longer then 4 days”
the reception was lovely and clean and well looked after and most of the staff was ok the area that the hotel is in, well it was like a building site. The hotel was a very short walk from the train station but it was not a safe walk. The double bed was 2 single bed pushed togerher and we keep slipping down the hole that was made, but was ok for 4 nights but thank god i was only staying for 4 night. The shower broke but was fixed the next day and when u showered the water come out all over the floor. but it was cleaned daily and we had clean towels every day and loads of then. The breakfast was fantastic and we looked forward 2 that every day. we was so close to the train track that we got woke up at 6 every morning and when the room next to us showered we heard it and all the noise came into are room.
“Adequate if on a tight budget”
On our arrival at the hotel, the desk receptionist printed a map of the train schedule and told us where to get a ticket to return to Rome. The easy walk to the train station is not a problem. We did have a problem when we were ready to return to the hotel one night and discovered the train station had closed 20 minutes earlier than stated on the schedule. We finally found a cab for an expensive ride. On our return to the hotel, the attendant printed instructions for a bus that runs all night. That would certainly have been nice to know sooner. So, for a place to shower and sleep, the hotel was nothing fancy but quite adequate. I couldn't call out on the phone but am unsure the problem; maybe not the hotel. If you stay here, make sure you get all the information you can on transportation details. Enjoyed the morning coffee and small breakfast. Most of the staff we met were very helpful with minimal communication problem because of language. One tried all day to reach a shuttle company for us, with no luck, so he made alternate arrangements in case our shuttle didn't show up to take us to the airport. All in all, it was a clean and pleasant place to stay.
“Too far out of Rome”
Our lack of knowledge about the geography of Rome was our problem here. The hotel was outside the city walls, which cost us 30 Euros over and above our pre-booked airport/hotel transfer minibus. The shower fixings in the bathroom were broken, but we were too tired to ask for a change of room by the time we noticed. The courtesy early call system did not work, which meant we missed our prebooked/paid for trip to the Vatican that day. However, Fabio, the desk clerk, was most helpful and got it rearranged for us. He was also very helpful with travel advice regarding the train system. Other hotel staff were helpful, too. Next time we will aim for something closer to the city centre, as we were rather constrained in the evenings by train times.
