Hidden away on a third floor, this hotel was ideally situated for us. St Angelo's and the Vatican were right on our doorstep and all Rome's other favoured tourist spots were in walking distance.
The room was Clean, modern and peaceful at night, it worked as a wonderful base.
Everything ran smoothly. The hotel organised a chauffeur to pick us up (and return us) from the airport, which kept things stress free.
Breakfast in bed was lovely, with a small but tasty array of foods and drink.
Towels, hairdryer, a safe and tv were all provided.
I would highly recommend this hotel for those wanting to be out in the city from morning to night and have a comfortable place to crash out at the end!!!
We arrived early at the hotel. they gladly helped us keep our luggage and even offered the toilets for us to freshen up before heading out. When we got back, our luggage were already in the room. The facilities were all great. All the fixtures seem new even the carpet. Breakfast was great. Hefty with a lot of choices. They will even gladly make you a cup of cappuccino. The hotel staff were all very helpful, providing us with a map and directions to places to visit.
Really great hotel in safe location. We had a back room so heard very little noise. Not like being in a big city at all. Room was not over large but adequate for our stay. Lepanto metro close by too. Buses outside. Breakfast first class and staff very friendly and helpful. Would certainly return.
Hotel Rex doesn't look too grand from the outside, but from the inside it is comfortable and pleasant, with superb staff. We arrived earlier than check-in and were immediately cared for by a courteous and friendly Italian receptionist, who spoke superb English. The lifts (there are 2) were each adequate for a couple with substantial luggage. We were on floor 2, which was ideal for us, but there were a few stairs down from the lift lobby to our corridor, which older or disabled patrons might find tricky. However, I have no doubt that hotel staff would be their accommodating selves in such cases.
Our room was about average in size, but was comfortable and very clean. The décor looks as though it was done about 10 years ago (in terms of style), but it has been kept very well. The bed was comfortable and there was a room safe, which proved invaluable. Hotel WIFI easily reached the room, and there was an open-access computer available in the common room downstairs on which I was able to print out return flight boarding passes.
Overall, for its price, this place is superb!
We chose Hotel Navona for a 2-day pre-cruise stay in September 2014. The hotel is a stone's throw from Piazza Navona and not too far walking distance from other sites. Our room had 3 single beds and it had plenty of room for us and all our luggage. The staff were very friendly and extremely helpful. Our cab driver on the day we left for the cruise port could not reach the hotel due to road construction and closures. With the help of the driver and a member of the hotel staff we were able to take our luggage to where the cab was parked. We had breakfast once (it is not included in the price unless you get a deal - 10 Euros each) which consisted of cereal, breads, yogurt, coffee, tea. There is no elevator at the hotel but the hotel staff will help you with your luggage. I would definitely stay at the Hotel Navona again.

The Hotel Navona enjoys a prime location in the Eternal City , within walking distance of Piazza Navona square. Situated …More
Good: The location was great, very close to the main Termini station for airport and many other transport links and within easy walking distance of a number of sights. The staff were very friendly and helpful, even when we arrived early. We were able to leave our bags with confidence and they even placed them in our room for when we got back from exploring a few hours later. There are a number of restaurants on the same block as the hotel and the one directly next door had phenomenally good food at reasonable prices.
Not so good: the room we had was a little dated and worn with a few missing tiles in the shower but it was very clean. The noise insulation between the rooms wasn't brilliant but didn't disturb us when we were trying to sleep
This was our first visit to Rome and what a lovely hotel, clean, friendly and the roof terrace was a winner especially at the end of the day with a glass of wine or cup of tea. Breakfast was always good and the ingredients fresh and plentiful. The reception staff were always polite, friendly and helpful.
I stayed in this hotel with my partner for two nights in September. Overall experience great in every way! Clean, easy access to transport, good location if you want to walk rome, and staff are so friendly!
Two issues :
- strange smell in bathroom maybe due to humidity?!
- breakfast room slightly small so you may struggle to find a table If you come down around 9.30..
However, these issues doesn't stop me from recommending it and I would definitely come back to it.
We stayed in this hotel and loved it because it was located in city center and close to everything, enjoyed the breakfast every morning, very friendy staffs and helpful, rooms were very clean and nice. Will go back again when visiting Rome.
