“Don't waste your time looking any further....book this hotel.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2011

Our stay was from March 31- April 3 2011. We arrived at the hotel early about 9am and our room was not ready, but we expected this. The hotel kept our luggage for us and we walked around the corner and toured the Basilica Maggiore. When we returned at about 10:30 our room was available. We stayed in a Superior room which had the tub/shower.
The pictures online are accurate and the room size was adequate. The hotel was very clean. The bed was comfortable and you can request a feather pillow if needed. If you need to iron....bring one.
The hotel staff, and especially the ones at the registration desk were extremely professional and pleasant. The hotel is close to everything.
Now, for the tips...book your Vatican/St. Peter's tour with Presto Tours. Our tour guides name was Ryan and all I can say is Wow! He was great and extremely knowledgeable. Copy and paste the link to view his video. The tour was 108 euro for two and worth every euro.

For FCO airport transportation to/from the hotel we use Rome Limo Rental. 50 euro each way. I made the reservation online and was sent an email with confirmatin within hours. The driver was waiting at the airport and waiting at the hotel for our return trip back to the airport. No problems at all.

This Hotel is a gem, very different from other claimed 4 star hotels in the city. It is clean, modern, spacious, efficient, centrally located, offers excellent facilities (including a wonderful fine dining restaurant)...and yes good value for money (note it is not cheap, but the quality is excellent, hence it represents good value).

Stayed at this hotel for three nights (21/3/11 - 233/11) - great location, really lovely rooms, free buffet breakfast, upgraded to superior room on check in which was nice. Could not fault the hotel or the service. Go to the nearby Termini station pay 42 euros for hop on hop off bus which included 'beat the queue' at the Vatican - well worth it. Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps, Colosseum etc all within 10 - 20 minute walking distance, bus ride to the Vatican, they stop regularly. Had evening meal in hotel on one night with 15% discount voucher each, so that helped the cost of the bill, would definitely stay there again, clean, comfortable, rooms, had a great time

We stayed at the Una Hotel for 5 nights on our very first trip to Rome. The hotel is a modern, well appointed hotel in the central part of Rome. We got to Rome at 9 AM and had to wait until 1:30 to check into our room (check-in is 2 PM). We've travelled to Europe before and hotel rooms can be quite small. We were pleasantly surprised when we got to our room ... not huge by American standards, but better than the traditional european size. We got a king-sized bed and the room (standard room) had ample space to store our clothes, a safe, mini-bar, desk/chair. The bathroom was quite large and very nice. Beware: our room had a shower with a very shallow basin (if you can call it that). The first night we got water all over the floor. The next day, we figured out how to bathe without creating a mess: it's a waterfall shower, adjust the showerhead to your height and do not turn the water on full blast (as you might at home). Follow this and you'll be OK. For the ladies, the bathroom is equipped with a bidet. They provided the standard soaps, shampoo/conditioner, etc. The towels were fantastic and high quality.

Now the bed/pillows . . .Excellent! The bedding was superior and we had a comfortable sleep every night. Our room did not have much of a view, but we went to Rome to be outside doing our sight-seeing. The service: Excellent. We had good experiences with the front-desk staff. They assisted with everything from reservations and recommendations to nearby restaurants, to information on using the metro, to checking on the internet for a nearby club we wanted to go to. A breakfast buffet was included in our room stay and we were very happy to have this convenience. The buffet: good selection of breads/rolls/pastries/croissants; jams and jellies; fruit and fruit juices (3); cold-cuts (salami, prosciutto, etc.) and cheeses; bacon and sausages; and scrambled eggs which were too runny/soft for us; coffee/cappucino/tea. We liked the coffee despite some reviews to the contrary. Each morning, the restaurant was packed, but we never had a problem getting a table (there was a convention going on). The restaurant staff were very efficient and quite pleasant ... top notch!

Your room card allows you to control the lighting and a/c in the room ... this was pretty cool. We tried to adjust the a/c but could not figure out how to do that. We were there in March and the nights were quite cold so we opened the window slightly and were quite comfortable. Wifi is available, but not free . . . $18 Euro for 240 minutes.

Location: Very central to the Termini which is the main train/bus terminal in Rome. You can get to any part of the city from here. We took the metro on several occasions including to the Vatican (4 stops away). We took the bus on only 1 occasion as we wanted to visit the Pantheon and Piazza Navona where there is no metro stop close by. We did a couple of other tours that we had pre-paid for.

Tip: When you get to Rome, go to an ATM and withdraw Euro. Most places do not take American $$. Do not exchange cash or Travellers checks for Euro unless you have to ... the exchange rates at their cambios are not very good. And if you have to excange US $ for Euro, check out a couple of cambios as the exchange rates vary from one location to another. For major purchases/dinner/shopping, use your credit cards . . your exchange rate will be better. But first, call your bank to advise them youi're traveling and the dates, and ask what their "foreign transaction fee" is. You might find that it varies from 1% - 3%+ depending on the card. Use the card with the lowest fee to save you dollars. Also, the Euro is currently stronger that the US $, so you might find things much more expensive in Rome. Food definitely is and a name brand pair of Jeans will run you about Euro $120 - 150! The shopping district is close to the Trevi Fountain and you'll find all the famous Italian brand names along the Via Condotti and surrounding streets. Your wallet will begin to immediately heat up as you near this area ... LOL.

What to see: That's really up to you. There are a lot of guide books you can buy to plan your itinerary. For a Vatican tour, try to avoid Saturdays and Mondays as these are their busiest days. I would recommend that you pre-purchase a "skip the line" guided tour of the Vatican ... we did and were very glad. A good tour company is Dark Rome. Our guide, Sarah was excellent providing us with the historical perspectives on the Vatican museum and it's treasures, the Sistine Chapel, and St. Peter's Basilica.

AVOID: Green Line Bus Tours (GLT) . . . we made the mistake of taking an open bus tour with them and paying $44 Euro for 2. Their busses run infrequently and we waited 45 mins one day for our bus to pick up at one of their many stops, while we saw other tour busses come by 2 -3 times before ours came. You will see guys on the street hawking this company (GLT - Green Line Tours) . . . avoid them like the PLAGUE and take your business elsewhere! Instead, go with the Red line, or Dark Rome Tours, or Viator Tours.

Another Tip: there are a lot of pick-pockets in certain locations (Termini, Trevi Fountain . . . anywhere tourists congregate.) We did not have a problem, but on 2 occasions, we were approached by someone asking for money and telling us some hard-luck story (one was a pregnant girl in her late teens/early 20's who was asking for money as she was hungry.) She kept looking over at this guy who was standing 10 ft away from us. We did not pull out any money to give her and politely said we had none and walked away. Do not be tempted as they have these pick-pockets who work in teams. If you're "aware" of your surroundings and are not flashing your cash around, holding on to your purse in front of you, and not having your wallet exposed in your back pocket ... you'll be OK. In many of the busy tourist spots, there are a lot of police officers patrolling, and they pack some pretty big guns.

Notwithstanding the graffiti in many locations, this is definitely a beautiful city in many other spots, with amazing architecture and a rich history. Enjoy Rome!

From the extensive breakfast buffet, to the ultra-modern lighting/keylock systems, to the service of the staff, this hotel, located two minutes' walk from the train terminal, is a traveler's oasis. Got a great deal on Expedia - decided to stay in Rome a few extra days on our own after taking an escorted tour of Italy. The hotel Palatino (the hotel used by the tour company) was OK, but UNA was twice the hotel at half the price, so I'm very glad we made the switch. Plus, the location can't be beat for doing your own travel - hop-on-off bus is nearby and we took a trip to Orvieto on our own - nice to be so close to the train.

This new modern hotel was very nice. The room very clean and had a comfortable king sized bed. The bathroom had a large shower/tub and modern sink. The room was very quiet for a Roman hotel. Great inclusive breakfast buffet. The location is very close to the train station. We would stay here again.
