The warm welcome from staff at Best Western Blu was really nice. They greeted us warmly on arrival, and we were checked in quickly and easily. I booked two rooms, one for myself and one for my mum who was travelling with me. They very thoughtfully put these two rooms next to each other, which was impressive and made life easier.
The rooms were pleasant and tidy and had everything we needed. There was also a fridge in the room which contained bottled water. The room was also air conditioned and had a balcony. The bed was a little hard for my liking, but this is purely down to my personal preference. The room was spotlessly cleaned every day. Free WiFi was provided, this was high speed and reliable, and was extremely useful during our stay - a great touch.
Something you need to be aware of is that the Blu is some distance from the city. It would be over an hour's walk to get to any of the attractions, or alternatively you can take the Metro (underground). Tiburtina station is a ten-minute walk from the hotel.
The hotel staff are a font of useful information, armed with tourist maps and local knowledge to help make your stay that bit better. They couldn't be more helpful if they tried.
The breakfast service is pleasant, running from 7-10am, which gives you the opportunity to be out early, or have a lie-in. It's far more flexible than I've known in other hotels.
I would highly recommend Blu Hotel to anyone... as long as you're happy not to be in the middle of the city.
Used as a stopover place between trains. Arrived at 11pm and left at 7am. Despite this, it wasnt an issue for the owner and he was there to welcome us late at night and help us checkout early morning (we even got a breakfast even though it wasnt due to start until after we left). Rooms comfortable, bathroom v small but clean - not an issue for us though! Great little hotel, less than 5 mins from the train station
Hotel was clean and staff very friendly and helpful. They assisted us with a map direction and booking a tour to the Vatican. Conveniently located close to bus stop and within walking distance to the train station. Located in a quiet neighborhood with restaurants and fruit stalls, ice-cream shops etc.
The only thing is that the hotel is not within walking distance to the historic sights, but easy to get to by train or bus.
Would stay there again.
The room is big and comfortable. Clean, modern and cosy hotel. Very helpful staff, they will text you (international mobile) before your arrival to arrange your check in. Breakfast not included and no dinning area, however there is a common area included drink and cooking faculties which you can used for free. Homemade cake available for free and they lovely.
Area may not be the best but still easy to get to most of the attraction. Staff will introduce all the transportation when you check in.
Bedroom is modern clean and big (big in rome), bed is comfortable. We had 3 nice nights, good recharged night after long walk during day time for all attraction.
Arrived here and greeted shown to my room which was better than I expected (single). Very friendly staff happy to help out nice private room with plenty of amenities nearby. Would definelty recommend this place to anyone who asked.
The Rome Tiburtina railway station, one of the most important stations in the city, is located in the Tiburtina Est neighborhood. The area is also an excellent starting point for a visit to the famous San Lorenzo district, known for its nightlife, and for daytrips to the medieval town of Tivoli and its ancient villas such as Villa d'Este and Villa Gregoriana.
