“What a great hotel ....”
Reviewed 8 April 2014

It was my second time at IQ Hotel in Rome . I stayed for 3 nights this time. It's a great little hotel with the best setting close to the central station and with a Metro-station only 2 minuttes away. And I must say, that it is about the cleanest hotel I've ever been to! Staff is very friendly and helpful. The breakfast-buffet is quite impressiv for an italian breakfast. I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

We just got back from our trip a couple of weeks ago and the IQ Hotel Roma was just perfect. The location is excellent, close to many bus lines and metro, and also about 1km from the Fontana di Trevi, which is not far when you're sightseeing. Spotlessly clean, modern rooms with a huge bathroom (with tub), empty fridge for your own drinks etc., lovely view of the Teatro dell'Opera just in front, and I could go on and on. The rooftop terrace is also really nice and we had drinks there a couple of nights after dinner. The vending machine with wine, beer and even French champagne is also really nice, and surprisingly the prices are very reasonable. The 10 euro breakfast is also very good, with a good selection of items and friendly staff. The reception staff and basically all the staff are extremely kind and helpful. We used the sauna once which was also great, and the gym, although we didn't try it, also looked perfectly functional. The coin-operated washer and dryer were also really useful. I have been to Rome many times but this is the first really modern hotel I've stayed in and it was a welcome change. A first visit for my partner who found the hotel excellent, with tons of good restaurants just around the corner. A excellent hotel in Rome for a short or longer stay. We will definitely be back!!

Room Tip: We had a room on the third floor facing the Opera and it was perfectly quiet with a nice view.

This affordable gem was located in the heart of Rome, making it easy to walk everywhere. Our room was quite large, even by American standards, and the front desk staff was extremely friendly and helpful. We were able to buy our Roma pass from the front desk. The hotel was clean and the 10 Euro breakfast offered was very good. We were on the ground floor, so we could hear some noise from the street, but it didn't bother us. I had requested extra pillows when I made the reservation, and they were waiting for us when we checked in. I was very impressed with this hotel and will definitely stay here again if we return to Rome!

Good, modern Hotel in the city centre of Rome.
All attractions are reachable by foot, this is very convenient!
The Hotel is clean, modern and bright. The beds are good and the breakfast even better.
Excellent WiFi signal is available throughout the Hotel.
The staff is friendly and always there to help.

One negative: the windows are not really 100% soundproof, if you have a room facing the street you might hear some distant street noise.
Also the walls are quite thin, you might hear banging doors of other hotel guests and noise from other hotel rooms.

A very nice hotel within a short walk from Roma Termini. Very modern furnishing, clean, and bright room off a quiet street yet very close to some good restaurants and pizzerias. Staff is friendly and helpful. I would stay there again next time when in Rome.

Clean, tidy hotel near Termini station in Rome. Had no problems at all. It's not top end or boutique but simply appears like an average chain hotel which is v comfortable & makes the best of what it has. Rooms decent size, reception helpful, WiFi good. Décor bit uninspiring maybe, but overall this place ticks all the boxes if you don't want to push the boat out in terms of price.
Only point would be location: good for Termini station, but a good half-hour walk if you want to regularly go to places like Trastevere, Piazza Navona, Campo de Fiori & so on.

RomeGR, Responsabile relazioni con la clientela at iQ Hotel Roma, responded to this review, 28 March 2014
Dear Guest,

We are glad to understand that your overall stay with us was pleasant and that you have especially appreciated our cleanliness.

As for your considerations about our concept and décor, we are sorry to learn that although this has been widely explained on our selling websites and on previous occasions here on TripAdvisor, we did not manage to convey to you what iQ is about. First of all we have never advertised ourselves as a boutique or luxury accommodation. This is not only clear from the description we offer of ourselves but also from the pictures we provide of the rooms and common areas. Therefore, we are sorry that although we try to be as clear as possible on our descriptions and pictures you were not expecting such an “uninspiring” décor. One of our strong points is to be completely honest with our customers and not sell something that we are not. This is also true about the size of the rooms. We understood from your words that you might have preferred a larger accommodation; in this regards we can only advise our future customers to contact our front office before booking so that they can help them choose the best accommodation for their needs.

Regarding your note on the distance to the Trastevere area, please note that nowhere on our website we refer as being close to this neighbourhood. As a matter of fact we also offer some distances to the closest sightseeing spots on our side of town (20minutes from the Spanish Steps, 1.5 km to the Colosseum, etc.) so that guests can better understand where we are and how long it might take them to reach what they want to see in town. We have voluntarily omitted the Trastevere and St. Peter’s area since they are in a completely different district from ours and did not want to confuse our guests.

Said this, we hope that your stay with us was pleasant and that in case you will not be staying with us again due to the location, you will be able to find some other hotel which will allow you to be closer to you preferred spot in town.
