“Best for location, great on a budget”
Reviewed 4 February 2013

We were very pleased with our stay at Rome's Locando Otello hotel, a very basic, budget, family-owned hotel a short block's walk from Station Termini. It was easy to locate and perfect for our needs, meeting all our expectations as a clean, quiet, simple room to nap after our overnight flight, store our luggage while we headed out for the rest of the day and into the night to explore Rome on foot and, when tired, by public transportation, and then to get a good night's sleep before leaving the following morning by train to meet our cruise ship in Civitavecchia.

The sweet little grandmother who checked us in was not fluent in English, but she charged us exactly what we expected (a price that allowed us to have plenty left for souvenirs and great memories from our day in the city), and her English-speaking helper directed us down one flight to our room. We booked directly through their website (I googled it online), and were able to save a few euros by doing so.

All in all, it was a very positive experience and we will definitely repeat our stay there the next time we are in Rome. (Of course, our rating was based on our expectations - we didn't expect a 4-star hotel, but we definitely didn't pay for one either since we weren't in the room long enough to justify that kind of expense~!! :)

Room Tip: Location is very important in Rome, and this hotel was in a great location an easy 3-minute walk fro...

The strongest point are very nice location - 10 steps from Termini station, cafe, bar, liquor store, metro and so on. No one did disturb me. Fast and permanent Wi-Fi connection, fridge and it`s clean always really! There`s only 1 drawback - the owner doesn`t know English( But anyway, I am very happy that i stayed there!)

A few steps from Roma Termini train station which is in the centre of the City, so we can visit everything by foot. The room are good only for sleeping. During the night some dubious guys were on the street but there wasn't any problem

The best thing about this place was how close it was to the Termini, less than a minutes walk. lots of restaurants and attractions in walking distance.
Place itself is nothing fancy, the whole place had a musty smell about it. Small bed rooms, small bathrooms.

If you just want a place to sleep and if you're not too fussy, this is the place for you. It is economical, well located and easy to travel to and from. We only stayed here 2 nights, so it was OK, wouldn't recommend it you need to stay longer than 2 nights!
It was run by the cutest little couple, they were really really old and the husband seemed to be doing most of the cleaning, they are wonderful, but do not speak much English.

There seemed to be a much better looking Hotel on the 2nd floor of the same building, cant remember the name though...
