Dem Guesthouse
Ranked #556 of 3,741 Rome B&B and Inns
Reviewed 1 August 2013

Dem Guesthouse should really be called a hostel. The convenience factor is great because it is so close to Termini train station, but it just cannot be called a hotel or B&B. Even though there are 4 locations, they share one staff person who runs between them, so you're not guaranteed to have someone there when you arrive unless you make prior arrangements. There is no way to ask questions or have any service unless you get luck and they are there when you are there. The price was low which was helpful and the rooms were clean but even the double paned windows couldn't block out the loud noises of the busy street outside. Overall it's great for backpackers and the like, but anyone who wants a "grown up" experience shouldn't choose this site.

Nice guesthouse, 5 mins walk for the main train station. Rooms were average size, clean and reasonably priced for Rome. There are plenty of restaurants, cafes, bars and shops within walking distance. Good base for seeing all the sights. Breakfast is left in the kitchen area each day, so you can help yourself. Staff helpful, would stay again.

The room at Dem Guest house Tiburtina was clean but cramped and dark. It's not in a nice area. The breakfast was prepackaged crackers and small cereal boxes. This is NOT a hotel ... or even a bed&breakfast. You are basically renting a clean room and bathroom in a dodgy area. However, the price was very low. We do not feel comfortable walking outside the hotel in the dark evening hours.

Stayed in the Dem Guesthouse for 2 nights. Dem's Guesthouse is just a few minutes walk to Termini station. Great location within walking distance to most of the attractions. Nice and clean room, and comfortable. There's a coffee machine, and small kitchen to use outside the room.

Great modern rooms and value for money. Easy walk from the Termini station with good metro access to most major tourist attractions. Staff were friendly and helpful. Good restaurants on the same street. I would highly recommend this to people travelling on a budget.

I stayed at the guesthouse for one night- in the main building where the reception is located. It is located very close to the termini, from where you can access 2 subway lines and the express train to the airport. It is within walking distance to lots of shops and restaurants, and the streets around it are very busy at night so even though this isn't the most beautiful/historic area, it doesn't feel unsafe. (I am from NYC, I would say this area is comparable to the mid-town south area, just east of Penn station.) The room is very nice/clean, probably the most comfortable bed I have ever experienced in Europe! The staff (especially Federica) were very friendly and happy to help you. Overall, it is a great value.
