The hotel is super close to re di Roma metro which takes you easily to the center of Rome. I'm a slow walker and it takes me 5 minutes at a stroll. Nice, modern hotel with decent sized rooms - a bit larger than other euro hotels. Staff were incredibly friendly and cheery.
The only con is that because the rooms have hard wood floors- you hear everything around you! So if the noise of moving chairs and tables and heels from shoes bothers you, then this will be a problem for you at this hotel. I prefer hard wood over carpet but it comes at a cost in this case. Outside street noise isn't too bad because it's not a heavily trafficked street. overall hotel deserves a 4. I can't give it a 5 because of the noise in the room.
Excellently located hotel with the metro just outside the door. 10 mins stroll and you are outside the Colosseum. Hotel very comfy and clean.
Only negative for us was the paper cups they leave in the room to make coffee & tea with but wouldn't let this put you off as for the money you won't get a better hotel in a more convenient location. We will go back.
This hotel in Rome is located within walking distance from some of the main archaeological sites and commercial areas. The …More
We enjoyed our stay and the room was clean and functional, but you should know that this is NOT a traditional hotel. It is a series of apartments in various buildings in the Giovanni district in Rome. This is not made clear on their website, and was explained to us only when we arrived to check in!
This makes for a unique experience, like you are living in an apartment in Rome, because you basically are doing just that! But if you want a hotel with a concierge, a computer, a decent TV, a shower bigger than a shoebox and a room larger than a small studio apartment...then this is not the hotel for you. We got a great deal for this hotel on Expedia and now I know why. It wasn't necessarily a *bad* experience, but it did make for a bit of unneeded stress and work. For example, we were given four keys for each of the doors we had to go through to get into the building and finally into our room. The elevator was one of those ancient lifts you see in movies where it's in a cage and you have to shut the doors yourself before it will go up. And it was so tiny it could barely fit two people and their luggage! The staff are nice, but I communicated with them via email and text because there was no hotel lobby where they were available to speak with in person.
On the plus side, the Terraze apartments are in a nice location close to Metro stations (Manzoni and Giovanni stations are short walking distance) and within walking distance of the Colloseum.
This is not a traditional hotel. It is however a very clean, good sized room, and easily accessible via metro. We went to Roma for a night and wanted a room not in the core of the hustle and bustle. There is no restaurant or pool etc as it is a cluster of rooms located is a business area of Roma. There is a fridge, closet, safe, big bathroom and shower and a very good air conditioning which is a must in Roma when it's 36 degrees outside. Simone was great. He was very helpful in giving us directions to and from there and was able to accommodate us leaving our bags there while we explored Roma. There is no "on site" staff but Simone is available. You have to advise them of checkin so he can be there. I was skeptical at the beginning but it was very easy and efficient. Would definitely stay there again if I don't want a "hotel".
A missed plane connection in Chicago shortened my stay at the Picadilly from two nights to one. I found the staff at the Picadilly accommodating and trustworthy. Prior to my stay I made a couple of inquiries about different issues since this was my first stay in Rome. Veronica was quick to respond and answered my questions. The room was comfy, clean and secure. The location near the metro station is another nice convenience.
The centrally located San Giovanni neighborhood is named after the stunning Archbasilica of San Giovanni in Laterano, the official ecclesiastical seat of the Pope. Near Porta Maggiore, one of the gateways of the Aurelian Walls, the area is full of shopping, such as on Via Appia Nuova and in Piazza Re di Roma. Every year, this area hosts the popular 1st of May concert.
