Disappointment . Absolutely not a four star hotel

Posted 19-Nov-2014
Pros: location
Cons: everything
I had paid for a triple room which consisted of two twin beds and a sofa. When I went up to my room, which I heard him say to his co-worker (double), it was a double room. They put a third bed in room to make it look like a triple. So I over spent by $170.00. Rooms needed a good painting. TV had very few channels. Hallways were in great need of a good paint job. The roof top area was by far the worst disappointment. It looked as if it were deserted years ago.

Very comfortable bed

Posted 15-Nov-2014
Pros: The bed
Cons: The bathroom was a bit tired.
Location: Great location. very near the Forum and about 3 miles from the Vatican.
The Hotel Cosmopolitia was in a great location, just around the corner from the Forum and The Colesseum. Also near to the Hop on Hop Off Buss stop. The only disappointing thing about the hotel was the lack of a dining room for evening meals. There is a bar next door serving snacks but very pricey. The room was fine but the bed was really comfortable.

Ok Hotel, small but very central

Posted 06-Nov-2014
It had some hidden fees. Take note! No welcome goodies included, they will charge you for every single snack you have. Staff could be friendlier and the size of the rooms are definitely small. The air con did not work, and the toiletries are poor. It is very central, and it's not a bad hotel, but definitely not a 4 star one.

Great location

Posted 30-Oct-2014
Hotel was in a good central location convenient for sightseeing on foot! Staff were friendly and helpful. Our room was great size for family of four without the kids having to share sofa bed, as is the case with many hotels we looked at! Breakfast although not included in our rate was good value for money.

good for the Forum

Posted 28-Oct-2014
Pros: Staff were friendly and breakfast was fine. The bar staff were very friendly and efficient. The location was good for the sights
Cons: The room was clean but small and the light wouldn't go off in the bathroom. The shutters wouldn't stay open which was an inconvenience
Location: Close to the Forum, the Piazza Venezia, the Colosseum and the Capitoline Museums
The other reviews on this site give a good overview of the hotel experience. Location is clearly the thing that this hotel has going for it. We did walk to most of the sights and could catch the bus or tram from the Piazza Venezia to other places. We did tend to gravitate to Trastevere by the tram for dinner each evening to find places we thought that locals would frequent. Next time we go to Rome we are renting an appartment over the river in Trastevere. I have stayed in many hotels in Italy and this one didn't wow me. In essence it comprises a reception area with rooms attached and the use of a bar which seems mainly to cater for non-residents.

Location, Location, Location

Posted 28-Oct-2014
Pros: It's great location for what we wanted to do and the helpful and friendly staff.
Cons: Better air conditioning and wifi and installing a guest-accessible ice machine
Location: The Roman Forum is around the corner, the Colosseum (and the nearest Metro station) are at ten minute walk right through the Forum on Fori Imperiali
Rome is a very walkable city and the hotel is a great starting point for most places a visitor would want to see. Literally around the corner from Colonna Triana and the gigantic Victor Emanuel monument, the property is modern, well-maintained and staffed by friendly, competent people. The room, by European standards, is average and does lack some amenities, including so-so wifi and air conditioning, but the location makes it a superior place to stay. Over a ten day period we easily and enjoyably walked to most parts of the city and really got a "feel" for what daily life is like in Rome. We took multiple tours in and outside of the city and by the end of our stay felt very comfortable navigating the warrens of small lanes that make up some many neighborhoods. While we plan travel to other parts of Italy before returning to Rome, when we do we will stay at the Hotel Cosmopolita.

Great location, friendly helpful staff

Posted 22-Oct-2014
Pros: Location, location, location. The room was small but we expected this.
Location: Walk to Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain, Victor Emmanuel Monument, Via Corso with it's multitude of shops and restaurants.
Modern, clean room in a fairly large hotel with quirky touches, like the steps in the hallways and the circular staircase. Porter helped with luggage on arrival and departure, due to those steps. Front desk staff very helpful.

Nice hotel central to all historic sites

Posted 17-Oct-2014
Pros: Great location
Cons: The attitude of the staff. They did nothing to go out of their way and if you asked for anything you felt like you were a major inconvenience
Location: Right in the heart of all the historic attractions. Could not get a better location.
We stayed at Hotel Cosmopolitan twice during our Italy trip. Great location within easy walking distance to all major attractions and close to good restaurants and bars.
