Beautifully appointed modern hotel,stinky bathroom

Posted 22-Nov-2014
Pros: beautiful
Cons: smell in bathroom of sewer gas
Bathroom smelled of sewer gas whether fan was on or not. Samll european room, firm mattress, but slept OK. Couldn't open window due to noise, but window really cut the noise. Toilet is located half under the sink and is awkward. Shower is huge, but hand held fixture is cheap and leaks. Night desk clerk was kind of grumpy, but OK. Location was OK & central, but all the sites are a 15 minute walk, 25 if you're slow like my husband. Lots of isolated single steps, so be careful not to trip. Rome is overall very touristy and not as quaint as Florence which I absolutely adored. November is a good time to travel and the lines were minimal to non-existent, so no need to skip the line, except in the Vatican which is always busy. Sistine was disappointing, Coliseum was awesome. Trevi would have been cool, but was under complete renovation, should be beautiful next spring. Pantheon was the most charming excursion with nice outdoor bistros and gelato places around it's piazza. All the many hop on hop off type buses are separate and stop at the same places which are all about 2 blocks from each place making it very difficult for my husband who has limited mobility. A young adult would have no problem walking between the sites and the metropolitan was very centrally located. It rains every day in italy in November, usually about 3 in the afternoon and again in the evening and very early morning hours, It's usually a light rain that you can still be outside in, but bring an umbrella.

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.

In the very centre and ideally placed.

Posted 12-Nov-2014
Pros: We liked the staff, the location and the cleanliness. The rooms are a little small but all you need a a bed(ours was very comfortable) and a shower.
Cons: Nothing springs to mind.
Location: It is ideally placed. Just across the road is a lovely informal eatery called Caesars. Check out the meal deal on the back of the menu.
This was our first time in Rome. I researched numerous hotels and am so glad i booked this one. The staff were lovely and the hotel is easy walking distance to ALL of the famous sites. (Vatican a little far thats all.) Rome is very noisy and the Italians are noisy. Go expecting this and you wont find fault. Our room was on the 4th floor and worth the little extra. The wi fi was fine. We never ate in the hotel as there was too much on our doorstep. Bar prices in the hotel were a little high but that is the same for hotels everywhere. We would definitely stay here again. The hotel called us a taxi the next morning for the set fare to the airport. They offer a car for about twenty euros more if you are celebrating something special but the taxi was clean and prompt.

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.
