Reviewed 14 November 2012

We picked this hotel because reviews travel site reviews were so positive. We were shocked at how wrong the reviews were... The hotel is located on the second floor of a building directly above a bar/restaurant. On the Friday night we checked in the bar was playing music and the noise was unbearable. It felt as though the DJ was blaring music directly in our room, it was so loud the floors were pulsating. After being unable to sleep we went to the front desk around midnight to see if we could switch to a quieter room. The front desk attendant was unable to help and went out of his way to point out that the floors have no sound insulation. The music finally died around 2 am and we were able to sleep. Besides the bar below the noise in the hallways and surrounding rooms and the street outside is also extremely loud.

The next morning we cancelled our remaining reservation and switched to a new hotel. It was the first time I've ever had to leave a hotel. The new front desk person was apologetic and said it's not always that bad, but we weren't taking another shot. We were seriously SHOCKED that no other reviews mentioned the noise. Unless you are a heavy sleeper who can handle lots of noise, avoid this place. It was the loudest hotel I've ever stayed in.

Room Tip: Unless you are a super heavy sleeper who can handle any noise pick a different room.

I highly recommend this hotel, I have stayed here many times over the past five years. The level of service is consistently high because the staff are friendly and very genuine. The rooms are clean, modern and comfortable. They have best breakfast bar in town. The location is perfect if you are catching trains so there is no need to rely on Roman taxis!! Free Wifi is very attractive! SuiteDreams will always be on the top of my list!

We stayed there for a weekend. We arrived close to midnight and receptionist was very helpful, also provided us with city map. Room was spotless, very clean and modern with spacious bathroom. Windows are with electric metal shutters, you can shut down them anytime, so its not noisy at all. Fridge with water (supplied every day) and safe free of charge. Breakfast room is very stylish decorated. Hotel is located close to train station (5 min walk)- as airport shuttle bus go straight to train station, its convenient, metro stop (2 min walk) but good walk away from historical centre (about 25 min) but its not a problem since metro is just on doorsteps. Macdonalds just around a corner and loads of nice restaurants nearby.
When in Rome...would stay again, no doubts!!

We stayed there for four nights. The staff went out there way to make sure we had a good time and help us with everything. They help with restaurants, site seeing, how to get around. The room was big and very clean and modern. It had to be one of the nicest hotels we ever stayed. We will surely stay there again on our next trip. DAN AND RITA

This is a great hotel centrally located in Rome. I emailed ahead of time asking if they had blowdryers in the rooms and taxi service from the airport. The communication was clear and I got a response quickly. I appreciated the large powerful blowdryer (not that tiny weak wall version that you usually get in hotels) that was given to me upon check-in. We also were given adapters to borrow. Loved the free internet. They even had an extra umbrella that we could borrow. The rooms are modern and clean. Very close to the metro and walking distance to practically everything. Difficult to see the small sign from the street so look carefully at the photos that are posted so you don't miss it. The elevator is too small but we only used it to carry our luggage, the rest of the time we used the stairs (the hotel is only one floor up). I'm so glad I did the research on this hotel.

Last summer [summer 2011], my aunt and I spend over 2 weeks traveling through Italy, Greece, & Turkey. SuiteDreams hotel was our first stop after stepping off the plane. Although we couldn't check-in when we arrived, they allowed us to leave our baggage behind the desk and gave us excellent directions on how to walk to the Colosseum. Unfortunately we got lost walking back from the Colosseum to SuiteDreams and when we finally arrived three hours later I'm sure we looked absolutely awful!!! We got to our room, cranked the air conditioner, and didn't wake up until 4am. Jet lag got the best of us.

SuiteDreams was PERFECT! Very nice room and an EXCELLENT bathroom. Everything was very clean and tidy. Breakfast was great. The view from our room was lovely.

Only negative comment is the elevator up to the entrance. It is very small and my aunt and I had to ride up individually. Not big deal.

This place was fantastic. First of 4 hotels in Rome. Though all 4 were very nice, I got to give the highest mark to Suite Dreams

Location: Fantastic.5 min walk from Repubblica (hotel is about 15 from Termini.. tho walking inside Termini is actually quite a LONG walk). About 15 - 20 min walk to Trevi Fountain. Took subway from Repubblica to Colosseum (very fast) and took taxi to Pantheon (hard to catch a bus on Sundays...) and taxi was only $10 euro including tax each way to Pantheon. Also close to a main street (Via Nationale) so lots of food. Close to transportation.

Hotel: Very small, about 10 rooms. Very clean environment. Beds were comfortable. Had English TV channel (BBC if I remember correctly).

Staff: Fantastic. They have staff 24 hours and all were super nice. Told us where to go, how to get there, what we should look for, when to be more attentive to our stuff, made us really comfortable about our stay in the hotel and rome as a whole.

Breakfast: Great. comparable to the other bigger hotels during our stay (UNA, Hilton Garden INN). and since so little rooms, we had great eating environment (not crowded, food always plentiful).

Overall, fantastic hotel. Really great small hotel / bed and breakfast, and since there's such a limited number of rooms, the staff really knows u and makes you feel welcome! Highly Recommended!!
