This brand new hotel is a true gem! We spent weeks trying to find a reasonable hotel in a good location in Rome and luckily found the IQ hotel! After looking at 200+ hotels on the internet, we got an impression that Rome hotels are old, run down and expensive. IQ is the complete opposite - it's brand new and it has everything a traveller needs!
The location is perfect - only a 5 min walk from Termini, but not at all in a noisy or shady area. It is situated in Teatro dell'Opera, right next to the Opera House.
The hotel is very clean, stylish and trendy. It has vending machines on most floors with everything from disposable cameras, toothbrushes, food to wine & beer. The hotel has a gym & sauna, self-service laundry, microwave on the 4th floor, business center, free wifi, balconies on the 4th floor, closed off smoking area on all floors, non-smoking rooms, children's play area and an amazing roof top terrace which is open 24h!
The rooms are spotless, and the bathrooms are fairly big with a good shower. The beds are a bit firm, but with comfy pillows and a comforter. A/C throughout the entire hotel.
There is a breakfast buffet on the rooftop terrace for 10 euro if it's not included in your rate. We just ate breakfast at a cafe or grabbed some foccacias on our way to the different sights.
Rome is such a beautiful city and the IQ hotel helps you enjoy it to the fullest. There's nothing like a hotel you enjoy coming back to after a long day out.
It doesn't get any better than this - look no further - book this hotel!
I do recommend visiting the Torre Argentina Cat Sanctuary at the ruins where Caesar was killed - the volunteers are doing such a great job and it's also a cool sight to see considering it's history.
Do get a buspass from one of the hop on & off buses to get around, or simply take the metro and walk. Everything except for the Vatican is pretty much within walking distance. Eat some ice cream at Blue Ice or Il Gelatone - they have lots of soy ice cream too!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- IQ is a 4-star hotel, with a twist! Located in downtown Rome, just a short 15 minute walk from the Trevi Fountain or the Colosseum and with Repubblica metro station just 200 metres away, hotels don't get much central than this. IQ guests enjoy free Wi-Fi connection throughout the hotel, a lovely terrace where to unwind overlooking the Opera House, and free access to our gym and sauna. We believe in tailor-made hospitality, so there are vending machines in virtually every floor, where you can buy yourself a bottle of wine, a pack of crisps, a tooth-brush or even an umbrella (not that you'll need it often!), All at very competitive prices. Now that you've found us... Welcome to a whole new hotel experience! IQ STAFF ... more less
