Great, well priced hotel. We stayed for 7 nights. Rooms were very free from noise from other rooms but we did get some traffic noise from the street. Italians LOVE to blow their horns! The hotel made reservations for us at the Borghese gallery and the staff were very nice to us (unlike what others have posted). Maybe they are not used to the Italian culture. The only downside would be no free wireless access. I think they would please a lot more people if they just added a few euro to the room cost and gave everyone free internet. OK breakfast. Room and bath are a typical size by European standards. I was impressed that our room was always cleaned by time we arrived back (Even when we came back after a late start and were only gone a few hours) and housekeeping never knocked on our door and woke us up even when we slept in late (unlike other places I have stayed). The bed was firm but not too firm that it hurt your joints. The location CANNOT be beat. We were a three minute walk from the metro, busses and the train station. Rome involves a lot of walking but using public transport helps to save your feet! Go to the restaurant Babbo's on the street behind the Baths of Diocletian. The best steak and well priced at 17 euro! This hotel had nice toiletries, towel warmer (to dry clothes on!) and nice big towels. The restaurant and bar are not that great so do not expect to have a great time there but why stay in your hotel with other tourists when you have all of Rome and its people to explore? We were extremely pleased with our choice and would stay there again in a heartbeat!

The hotel is in a brilliant location only a few minutes walk from the termini station and about a 20 minute walk from the trevi fountain and from the colloseum aswell. the room was smaller than we expected but for what we needed was perfectly fine, the bed was extreamly comfortable and to behonest after an entire day walking around rome thats the main thing you need. the room and bathroom look very nice, although our shower did leak, but was fixed by using two of the hand towels on the floor. the staff however, especially on the main desk, i found to be unhelpful and some what rude. The morning breakfast was somewhat of a joke, the little choice of cooked food (mini sausages, bacon and discusting scrambled eggs) was some thing we didnt touch after our first morning simply due to how revulting the eggs were. the rest of the food is edible but nothing your going to want to stock too much up on mainly consisting of the usual bland continental type food, all with very little taste. The rooms were very well kept by the cleanin staff though. Getting around rome was fairly easy although if your in a wheel chair or find it hard to walk around easily rome may not be the best place for you as it is not disable friendly at all. Pick pockets were avoided by making sure you have a zipped bag and keeping hold of the zip end at all times. Rome is a very very beautiful place, and me and my boyfriend highly recomend the tour for the colloseum and palatine hill and roman forum which cost us around £25 for all 3 with guides. the metro is very cheap and easy to use, 1 euro for a ticket although they get very cramded but a new one is usually due only 1 minute after the previous.(if only london was as quick:) ) Over all the only thing that would stop me returning was the staff at the hotel, they were very rude. Our check out time was meant to be 12 but at 10.30 the key card which is used to activate the lights etc in the room was deactivated with no warning what so ever!
go to rome, stay near the termini station by all means but be careful with this hotel, although if your not bothered but unfriendly staff and a rather dodgey breakfast the rooms were comfy enough to say go to, maybe youll be luckier than we were.

Getting from the airport (fuimicini-spelt wrong probably sorry :) ) we got a 8 euro bus, which took about 45 minutes but was comfy enough and the cheapest option, findin the bus stop was interesting at the tuourist info office were rude and un helpful and as of every thing else in rome it was not well sign posted (serious map skills are needed in rome) the bus stops right next to termini station. on the way back we took the train, very comfy and at 11 euros it was quick at only 30 mins (non stop) and also departed ontime.

I can't really understand all the very positive reviews of this hotel. There's nothing special about it. Termini is a hotel area with hundreds of hotels. As said by other reviewers it is clean with a nice staff and a good location. So are dozens of three star hotels, but this one has four!
A four star hotel does not have the bar driven by another company (making it impossible to put the tabs on the room), does not charge 5 EUR for 1h Wi-Fi, do not have door locks with both physical keys and keycards (which was very hard to produce in the reception). A four star hotel: has a bit of class (sometimes a lot), has high quality beds, pay attention to details and serve drinkable coffe at breakfast - especially in the country of espresso...
Go elsewhere if you're looking for four REAL stars.

Just had 4 nights in the hotel. Location is very good as it's a few minutes stroll from the Train Station. pre-booked the TerraVision coach from airport and only cost 16euros return for the 2 of us. Ate at an excellent pizzeria across the road called Est Est Est. Hotel was spotlessly clean. Stopped in room 107. Quite small but served it's purpose, will a new modern bathroom....shower very small but adequte. Breakfast was fine....cold meats, cheese,bread, bacon eggs, sausage and pastries which will send you into a sugar rush. Enjoyed Rome...but 4 nights was enough. Very Very Expensive. Can of coke between 4.50 and 5 eruos...struggled to find a pint under 6 euros with the most expensive we paid 7.50 euros !!! Lots of beggers wherever you go...and city full of graffitti. Walked for miles.....the colessum is only about 20min walk from hotel. Trevi Fountain again isn't too far but be on your guard for pick pockets and beggers. Caught the metro to the Vatican city but walked back via the 'Trastevere' Region. This area is a must. Very pretty....food and drink excellent value. Cobbled streets. 1litre of wine 8 euros...pizza 5...bargain! Really pretty area....but make sure you've got your walking boots !! Did enjoy Rome but have been to nicer cities !

Stayed here for 5 nights in November 2009 before starting repositioning cruise. Location is great. An easy walk to Termini. We walked to most venues. It is situated down a side street that runs parallel to a main street ( Carvour ??) that runs straight down to the Forum area. Easy access to subway thru the Termini. There is a market store in the lower level of the Termini where you can grabs some water, snacks etc. and many restaurants nearby. We liked "il Tavolinetto" restaurant on 46 via D'Azeglio # 46. Go out Hotel entrance , turn left and walk to the next corner ( 50 meters?) and it is right on the corner. The hotel is clean, and quiet and near many other hotels. The rooms are modern and well furnished but I would agree with a previous writer about the smaill showers. Not a problem..but smaller than North American standards. Staff were friendly and reactive to any request we made. Breakfast is ok. We found that the bacon was almost never cooked well and we found that in two other Italian hotels so it must be a custom on how to cook bacon. Otherwise, you can get a reasonably filling breakfast to allow you to start your day. We returned late evening each night and always walked to the hotel. A quiet street, but never felt uneasy. We would recommend the Augusta and would certainly stay there again on our next visit especially since we now know how close it is to many attractions if you don't mind walking. In hindsight, we should have probably taken the hop-on, hop-off bus and the subway more often so as to spend more time at the attractions but we love to explore the side streest etc. and meet many interesting people and find little "treasures" of places and restaurants that would not be found by many tourists. It was a great visit and we will do it again in the near future. Have fun and enjoy. !!!
