I would recommend IQ Hotel in Rome to anyone looking for a modern hotel accessible to the train station. We stayed there for 3 nights in June and was very happy. It has a wonderful work out facility and sauna, great bathrooms and you are literally 10 minutes from the train station (Repubikka is the stop). The beds were a little firm, but other than that - great!

Room Tip: Try to get a room where the air conditioning flows better

The IQ hotel was a perfect Hotel for myself and my daughters. The location was perfect, the room was spacious. We love that they had a vending machine with everything you might need. The staff was so nice and helpful. I would stay here again.

We stayed here a year ago during our honeymoon and liked it so much we came back this year. Wonderful customer service, cozy and quiet room, reasonably close to the train station and other key attractions. The breakfast at 10 Euros was tasty, convenient, and reasonably priced. Would highly recommend this.

This is a very clean and modern hotel. The breakfast is quite good for €10 each. Staff are very helpful. In a really good location. Hotel room is not big but bigger enough. Would stay here again.

As a personal trip, we stayed here for 3 nights in June 2012. We stayed in room 416 that had a large bed and balcony. The property is built for function, and it does a great job in delivering. When we come back to Budapest we will absolutely look here first. As usual, the Good,the OK, and the Bad.

The Good
- Car service from airport. On-time waiting for us with sign. We took the round trip for €99 and thought it was worth it. Both cars were comfortable, the drivers polite, and their driving was safe, if not a bit madness as expected in Rome.
- Check-in. <5 minutes. With a smile. Excellent. The front desk was real friendly throughout and offered us a local restaurant one evening that was superb. I cannot recall the name, but it started with a "B" and was a short walk. Well done front desk. I will complete a review of the restaurant when I recall the name.
- Room. Solid and basic. Nice sized bathroom will all needs covered. The air conditioning could not have been colder (too cold for the better half). The bed was firm and there was an extra pillow (and blanket) in the closet. There was also a safe in the closet, as well as an empty refrigerator - that we used to store well-needed bottles of water.
- breakfast. The €10 each we spent on breakfast was he best investment across our stay. Fruit, breads, cheeses, eggs, sweets, etc. Well worth it and appreciated. You can sit outside on the rooftop and enjoy your morning.
- Rooftop deck and vending machines. A great idea and well executed by iQ. With a series of chairs and couches, you can lounge on the rooftop 24x7. There are vending machines there that offer very affordable beer, wine, drinks, some food, etc. We spent our late evenings unwinding up there and enjoyed the fresh air.
- Solid location. Is it in the dead heart of the city? No. But it's close enough to walk to center, and sits in a nice neighborhood with shops of all types.

The OK
- WiFi service was spotty at best. Yes, it is free but quite slow at times, or simply just didn't engage. If you are 100% reliant upon the hotel WiFi, you may want to plan a back up plan.

The Bad
- Nothing, and nothing close

I highly recommend the iQ for overall value and experience. Do not expect the comfort and amenities of a Four Seasons, but it's solid and comfortable. The rooftop deck and vending machines showed me that the designers were thoughtful in their experience approach. They cold have offered a full-service (and expensive) bar. Instead, the offered a great space with affordable solutions in the bring our own terms. Well done.

Thank you IQ Hotel!

We are a couple in our late twenty's and have just returned from our 3 night stay at the IQ Roma. Apart from absolutely loving Rome, we cannot recommend this hotel enough and have already told all our friends and family about it.

Early check in was not a problem and the staff at reception were very polite and friendly, and gave us very good recommendations for restaurants and travel in the local area. They recommended a restaurant around the corner off Via Nazionale, called 'Berzitello' on Via delle Quattro Fontane. This place was small, traditional, full of locals, and really good value for money at around 60 euros with wine-try the Fettucine with Lamb sauce (delicious).

The rooms were spacious and modern, lovely and clean, come with a big bathroom, and good aircon system (very important in 35 degrees). The rooftop terrace was great to relax on with a nice cool drink from the vending machines. The laundry room was very useful for ironing those crumpled up clothes.

The breakfast was ok, could be improved but hey its Italy so you dont go expecting a Full English. There was fresh fruit, cold meats and cheeses, yoghurts, coffee and also bacon and egg although they need to get some better bread for toast.

The location is what really makes this hotel a winner, lots of lovely restaurants and bars around, close to both the Termini and Republicca metro stops so you can get around easily. We were thinking about getting the hop on hop off bus but glad we saved our money and instead got the metro everywhere, get a ticket for 6 euros which gives you unlimited travel for 24 hours, and you can go to the Vatican, Colosseum, Trevi fountain very easily and quickly.

In summary if in Rome and you are looking for a good basic modern hotel with an excellent location don't hesitate to book, we will definitely be back if we find ourselves in Rome again.
