We found that there were a few problems with this hotel.Firstly we are both registered disabled and the shower was on mixer taps over a bath,my partner struggled to get over the bath to shower.The air conditioning was a hit & miss if it worked and the temp outside was 94dgrs.We asked for the beds to be put together but it was not done.We booked the hotel because it had a swimming pool,then the day we wanted to use it it closed @12noon as they were having a wedding that eve.There was no info in the room about how to work the air conditioning ect.All they had was a note to tell what time breakfast was.I have stayed in many hotels and they always have an instruction book.Also there was demolition work on the other side of the car park with a digger going most of the day.Plus it would be nice to have tea facilities in the room.
Nice clean hotel
Food good but expensive watch out for the table charge for sitting down to eat
Metro station is far away to walk esp with children at least half an hour and it the heat it is hard work
There is a bus stop outside the hotel, but no clear timetable and staff do not know when it comes so its a bit hit and miss
On the way back we stopped outside the metro for food and a taxi back to hotel reasonable
Bus back from metro station is caught further back from the station so ask reception
The hotel is a decent ride from the airport, close to a Metro station which will take you right into the historical heart of Rome in just a few stops.
The only non-atractive side is that there are no night activities close by.
We did enjoy our stay in it.
Daytime staff at this Hotel were fabulous, once the evening staff came on the Hotel became a different place to staff. Unfriendly, unhelpful, sometimes aggressive!! Communication with the staff to the guest was not great to say the least. One girl on reception was amazing, unfortunately didn't get her name, Tall slim with glasses, she was Fab, so helpful, last day spoke to manager about problems and again totally fantastic. Bar staff were appalling, trying to get a cup of tea was like asking for the moon. Totally unhelpful, asked for tea on two evenings and was treated like a leper. Rooms beautiful, but move a magazine and you can see the dust and how the rooms are cleaned!! Great location if you want to stay outside of Rome and use the metro. Great hotel if the get the daytime staff would work all day and all night.

Nice hotel - good value for the 70€ price we paid. Hot breakfast - one of the best we encountered on a two week tour.
10€ cab ride to Collisseum, 15 minute walk to Garabella Metro, or bus stop about 5 min walk.

"Pleasant backwater hotel with excellent restaurant"
But, it's actually an easily accessible backwater from central Rome. About 30 minutes walk and metro to the Colosseum for example. Would be little more to and from Termini main station.The walk to the hotel is about 10 minutes with a modest number of steps up from the metro. Being in a backwater makes the Congressi economical ... and quiet, unlike most central Rome hotels. I discovered the Congressi when visiting my company's office not far away, and returned for a cheap holiday mainly because I do very much like the restaurant, La Glorietta. Roman and other Italian staples done perfectly; a decently wide-ranging wine list, modestly priced enough to order a whole bottle even if one doesn't drink it all; attentive service; and a warm atmosphere. The EUR district is appealingly but not excessively run down, its triumphal architecture still handsome, yet with a domestic feel. And indeed, this dream suburb conceived by Mussolini has matured into an understandably quite popular place to live for middle income people. Feels very safe - all you see are ordinary local citizens going about their business. Rooms are fine, fairly modern, with small but well decorated bathrooms or shower rooms.
The hotel is very comfortable with spacious rooms and the staff are incredibly helpful and friendly. The cleaning service was also excellent.
It is a fair distance from the centre of Rome but as we were staying for over a week and don't mind the odd bus ride that wasn't a problem for us. Once you've done the bus and metro trip into Rome once or twice it's actually very easy to get in and out and we never waited long for a bus.
The only thing that disappointed us about the hotel was the leisure facilities which is a big part of why we booked that hotel. The swimming pool, spa, restaurant/pizzeria and gym etc. is not actually onsite at the hotel and is in the leisure centre next door to the hotel. You do get free access to much of it but it's open to the public and the swimming pool is always busy with locals doing lengths, which takes away from the holiday atmosphere. We also didn't get to go in the outdoor pool as it wasn't opened whilst we were there, despite good weather.
Also, there are no tea or coffee facilities inside the rooms and when I went to get a cup of tea from the restaurant next door, they wouldn't let me take the tea myself but instead follwed me to my room with the tray just so that they could charge an extra 6 euros for room service!
Aside for those minor points, the hotel was brilliant. The bed was comfy and the room air conditioned and if you had the window shut it was very quiet and peaceful. Again, the staff were amazing and spoke flawless English.
A couple of miles south of the city centre, EUR takes its name from Esposizione Universale di Roma, built for an exhibition in 1942. The bombastic architecture was then intended to glorify Fascism, but now is home to shops, cinemas and clubs and exhibitions. Within the marble halls there are also three very good museums, including the fascinating Museum of Roman Civilization.
