We stayed at the Hotel Navona for 3 nights in November. Loved the location and loved the price! The room was small, but certainly adequate as was the service and the breakfast. We wanted to be near the Piazza Navona and this served our purposes. The hotel is convenient to all the sites. Actually we have just made reservations to stay there again next spring. The only down side would be the flight of stairs from the street to the hotel on the 1st floor, however, I just stayed with our luggage while my husband went up and ask that someone come down for all our bags. Breakfast is very basic and served in a room with tables lined up on either side of the room. As someone mentioned in one of the other reviews, if you're use to the Hilton and don't feel you can adjust, you probably should look elsewhere. Barbara89/ addedoomph@northstate.net

The hotel is in a great central location and is in easy walking distance of all the major attraction of Rome. It was generally clean and our room on the top floor was small but comfortable. The only downside was the shower curtain had seen better days. Breakfast was simple; 1 large bread roll with condements, packaged crossant and good dark coffee, but that set you up well for the morning and a easy lunch on the street. For dinner there are some very good restaurants on the other side for Piazza Navona down Via di Tor Milina.

For my mother's 70th birthday, we booked her a short break in Rome. she had a fabulous time, and was very comforatable with the accomodation and services of the Hotel.Bearing in mind the fantastic location, the room rates are well within budget. She will certainly be booking with this Hotel the next time she visits Rome.

We stayed here at the end of March (2007). I will start with the positive..you can't beat the location, it is minutes from the Piazza Navona which was one of my favorite areas of Rome, and a short walk from the bus station, and it is tucked away in an alley so you don't get quite as much noise as being on a main street. We were put in an apartment in the back of the hotel because it was only 135 euros a night which is cheaper than the actual hotel portion, but we still had access to the breakfast room. The room was fairly nice, it wasn't extremely clean but decent enough. They didn't provide any frills by any means (soap, extra toilet paper, attractions books, etc) and the bathroom was super tiny and a little hard to navigate. The towels smelled bad and didn't look very clean. They did make the bed and change the linens every day though. The bed was small and not very comfortable. There was a TV and 1 English station. The location of the room was right near the kitchen, and it was sooooo loud come 7AM, so that was a little annoying. The breakfast is horrible and not worthing stopping by for. We actually went the first day and we couldn't get anyone to serve us for a very long time, and we are patient people. They gave us coffee which was ok, but the only food we got was a croissant wrapped in a plastic bag that looked really unappealing. There wasn't internet access either which was a bummer, especially since we needed to check the train schedule. It is extremely hard to find too, so make sure you get accurate directions before going..the ones on the web did not help us at all. In Summary, if you are looking for a no frills budget friendly option then I would recommend this place, but if you are looking for a more intimate experience I would not recommend this place.

I have been coming to Hotel Navona for almost two decades. The Hotel has always given me a warm welcome and they have become like family to me. I am quite surprised by the comments that some travellers have made of this family-run establishment. Being a family run business, complaints are taken personally, not as in a large hotel chain. I mention when things need to be fixed, exchanged or improved but in a polite manner. If you have an attitude that you are unhappy and everyone on either side of the reception desk should know it (we've all met travellors like that) then a small hotel (at a reasonable rate) in Italy (or most of Europe) is not for you. A traveller coming to Rome has to appreciate the high prices that hotels now command given that the Euro has more than doubled the cost of visiting the Eternal City. This sometimes makes it difficult to find a decent, well priced and safe place to stay, especially if you are a female travelling alone. Hotel Navona has provided me with this type of safe environment and this encouraged me to stay there alone or with my family. The rooms are clean, comfortable and the many renovations over the years now guarantee me windows with double-glazing that prevents the outside noise from coming in. The (very) light breakfast in the morning is welcoming but as some guests have written, if you want more than juice and a fresh bun, there are plenty of restaurants or bars within a few minutes walk that offer a greater variety. I've found this small hotel is always improving and always accommodating.

If you are used to the large North American style hotels and amenities without the old world character, than this is not the place for you but of course you are going to have to pay a substantial premium to get that kind of service.

Although the hotel is well positioned, the rooms are nothing like the pictures shown on the website.

Our standard room did not have air conditioning as stated in the web site and the room was small to the extent of being claustophobic

The attitude of the owner left much to be desired, as when challenged the rooms did not match the picture on the website, we were told " You are paying for the location not the room.

The exterior of the courtyard was dilapadated and uncared for.

Breakfast while included was very sparse " a roll and cup of coffe and fruit juice out of plastic cups"

An experience to avoid

The manager was rude. The rooms were not clean. I would not stay here again. We were booked at the Residenza Zanardelli but were bumped to the Hotel Navonna. It was a very bad experience.
