The room we stayed in was in another apartment block which was 1 minute down the road from the main hotel/reception. The building we stayed in had some old features, including an ancent wooden lift and marble stairs. There appeared to be residents living in the block so our hotel only had a few rooms available here. This was not a problem as there are plently of secure doors/gates.
The room itself was clean and the decor included some old-fasioned touches. The bathroom was modern and very clean. The only thing we noticed was that unless we opened the windows in the room, there was a lingering musty smell. This was probably from the drains and wasn't so bad that an open window couldn't sort out. The other thing is that there is little natural light in the room. Given that most buildings in Rome appeared the same, I think this would be universal, so no real reason to turn a room down at Belides H.R.
Breakfast was served at the main hotel block but this wasn't a problem since we were only 1 minute down the road. Breakfast was of a high standard: cereal, toast, fresh croissants/cake, yoghurts, fruit. Breakfast staff were attentative and friendly but also left you in peace to enjoy your food.
Our hotel was close to the city centre but a little out the way of the main tourist areas. We were able to walk to the Vatican in 10-15 minutes. We had a good choice of restaurants and cafes to eat in the area that did not have that 'tourist trap' feel.
We made a two-night, three-person-room reservation at this hotel because of price and location considerations. The facility and staff are very nice and the location is near Vatican City and public transportation. Our room was comfortable and the breakfast-included was very good. We truly enjoyed our stay here.
"Need to look at this hotel - Great location 09/14"
This is an absolute gem of a hotel in a great location and easily accessible to all places, we made a choice of being closer to the Vatican rather that the coliseum and feel it was the right decision. We walked to each tourist attraction.pther that's the coliseum we got a taxi there but did walk all the way back via the pantheon, they where quite long walks but well worthit as you see lots of great sights and lots of Rome. We didn't get any trams and just that one taxi so it shoes it can be done, it's a perfect location. The hotel staff are amazing very welcoming very helpful and do anything they can to make your stay a little better. It's very well furnished very modern they have everything you need in a city hotel. After seeing some of the other options this hotel definitely has amazing value for money!
