"Pleasing hotel near Roma Termini (train station)"
Very nice place just off Via Cavour. Great rooftop bar. The room had a separate alcove for the shower, and modern cabinetry for closets and drawers. Disappointing wifi, but it was free. Nice breakfast buffet. Helpful staff.
Stayed at the Grifo hotel in September. Walked to the hotel from termini station in 15 mins. Hotel in great location for Colosseum, Trevi Fountain, Pantheon with good public transport access. staff very helpful and friendly. Had a small issue with our bed but resolved instantly. Highly recommended for people wanting to explore Rome. We even managed to go back to our hotel in the afternoon for a break and change of clothes before we went back out in the evenings.
The hotel is in a fantastic position allowing us to walk everywhere in Rome rather than use metro etc. For what you pay for a room, I feel is value for money. Our attitude is that we are just sleeping there of a night, so not so worried about home comforts. Our only negative is the noise at night from the square below where locals meet from 5pm through to about 2am. Lots of singing, music and drinking and very loud. Ear plugs weren't enough. I would recommend booking a room not overlooking the square.
The hotel staff was helpful, but this was just an apartment building around the corner, and the hotel staff was not 'there'. The room was fine, but the shower leaked horribly and didn't drain. For the price, it was fair.
"Great location close to many sights and amenities"
The hotel is located about halfway between the coliseum and the termini. A short walk to the basilica Maggiorie and you have access to open top bus tours . A further 600 yards and you are at the Termini buses metro and trains. The hotel is ideally placed for everything restaurants ,pubs, shops etc.
On arrival at hotel it was pleasant and air conditioned and the staff were friendly and helpful. The room had a double bed in it which looked as it needed to be replaced I was travelling with three friends who also said their beds were simmilar - however during my seven night stay I and my party had a good nights sleep every night, The room was clean had a mini bar and safe with plenty of storage space. The shower cubicle was a little small but the shower was powerful and always plenty of hot water available.
The reception staff were very helpful and friendly .
The breakfast was an experience the staff did not understand much English and did not appear to be the most cheerful of people. The fare on offer can only be described as poor and let's the hotel down, it makes you think about other areas that need improvement.

The heart of Ancient Rome, all roads led to the Forum. Visitors flock here to walk the streets where Julius Caesar once trod when this was the centre of commercial, political and judicial life. Nearby, the Colosseum, described by Lord Byron as 'the gladiators' bloody circus', is the world's most famous amphitheatre and the most impressive of all Rome's buildings and ruins.
