“Great Location in Rome!”
Reviewed 18 June 2013 via mobile

We spent 3 nights and will for sure stay here again, the rooms are small but bright and very clean.

What sets this hotel apart from many others we've stayed at is Tomasso - he loves his city and wants all his guests to have a really good stay. He gave us a plan for both our days and we got to see many hidden parts of the city that we might have otherwise missed! The vegitarian restaurant he told us about was fabulous.

The suite locaton is in a great part of Rome, you can walk to anywhere and there are countless restaurants and bars.

Correctly named, this place is a collection of very artfully designed room suites on the first floor of a mixed apartment/restaurant building pretty much in the middle of Trastevere. Come here if you want a room all in white with splashes of strong colour (mine was in imperial purple), if you want great restaurant and sightseeing advice from the management, and if you like the idea of having your own front door key, Nespresso machine, and a view onto the main street (but with very effective noise excluding windows). And if you like rooms that have been designed with curved walls and rainshower enclosure where it would have been cheaper to create a standard box.They include breakfast but you have to get out and take yourself to one of two nearby cafes with whom they have an arrangement. The one that opens later (at 9am) has freshly baked pastries included which were so much better than the normal stale hotel fare that I welcomed the walk...
Do not come here if the idea of a shared street level entry with buzzer, an ancient but effective elevator, reception manned in the morning only, or having to carry or wheel you bags over cobbles for 400 metres bothers you - go stay in a cookie-cutter chain hotel instead.
But if you want to be in the middle of an Italian experience (albeit a rather touristy one in Trastevere) give Hip Suites a try. I for one was in no way disappointed and will be back.

I highly recommend this place. Tomasso and his colleague were very professional and helpful. The suites were neat and clean. Each room was equipped with a mini split air conditioning unit which is a most to endure Rome's hot nights during spring and summer. The suites also have a mini kitchen and capacity to accommodate additional people. Each room was provided with a laptop and Wi fi service was included.
The location couldn't be any better: located in the Trastevere, a very animated area specially at nights and within walking distance of many of the city's major attractions.

Although we won't too sure what to expect I must admit that it was an amazing surprise.... Absolutely perfect location in fact after walking a lot within Rome we realised that this part of Rome is definitely the best to stay. It is surrounded by great affordable restaurants and the mini kitchen facilities gave us the opportunity to have breakfast in the room and light meals too. Would definitely recommend it with no hesitation. Not cheap I do agree but worth every pennies!!!!

Hip Suites is located in a great neighborhood. I had a wonderful experience there and in Rome in general. It is not fancy at all, and is actually pretty bare boned, however, Tomasso (the man who runs it) gives great little hidden tips on Rome and takes a lot of time helping plan your days. He was wonderful and I would recommend this hotel.

I just came home from an amazing trip to Rome and the Hip Suites.
We stayed for 4 nights and really enjoyed our stay. The hotel is centered in the heart of Trastavere, which is a cozy district not far from the center of Rome. Around the hotel there are many restaurants and bars and also the Santa Maria church. It is not the most silent hotel in Rome, but I wouldn't call is noisy either. I am pretty sensitive agains sound but I just used som earplugs and then i didn't hear a thing :)

You are a self-propelled guest when you stay at Hot suite but every morning there was someone from the personell there to answer any questions you might have. They are all very friendly and helpful and the know a lot about Rome! They gave us many good tips about attractions and restaurant.

You eat breakfast at a coffeeshop nearby, of course it's an genuin Italian breakfast with coffee and croissant :)

The hotel is clean and cool (with aircondition) and it's walking distance to almost all the big attractions in Rome.

I will really recommend this hotel to my friends and family, and to you of course :)
