“Great stay ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 January 2014 via mobile

Friends and I had a great stay at Fabio Massimo. Clean, comfortable and personable staff. Great breakfast and fun design, and super fast WiFi. I thought it might be noisy, but it was never a problem. it's in a good location... accessible by foot or subway.

Stayed November 2013, travelled with friends

Excellent service, very comfortable room. Television works fine in English for most of the big Fox/Discovery/BBC type channels. Shower water could be hotter. Very close to the Vatican, and very easy to access the Metro to other attractions around Rome.

My husband and I stayed here for 2nights. We got a bit of difficulty to find the hotel as the sign is very small but we managed to find it eventually. The front staff was very polite, friendly and informative. The room was very clean and modern with comfortable bed. Breakfast was nice too. Plus the wifi was very accessible !! Overall, we really enjoyed staying there,and would be returning when we visit Rome next time.

My boyfriend and I only stayed at this hotel for one night, however, it definitely left an impression on both of us. The staff were all extremely friendly and very accommodating. The buffet breakfast was delicious. The rooms were great, on the smaller side, but how much time do you really spend in your room when you're in Rome? Very modern, clean and comfortable! The bathrooms were great. I'm not certain why people complain about the lack of design, we both thought several of the design features were very unique and nice. The location was great, only 400m to the closest Metro station, very accessible.
If I had to give one constructive criticism to make it better, a larger or brighter sign on the outside of the building would be nice. We're used to North America where there are large, well-lit signs and we struggled to find the small metal sign at first. Overall, a great stay - I would highly recommend it to anyone!

My husband and I stayed here for four nights in November and were very satisfied with our stay. You are within walking distance to the Vatican, but it was quite a long haul (~50 minute walk) to get to sights such as the Colosseum or Roman Forum. However, you are within a couple minutes of metro stations that can get you to those locations much faster. The hotel staff was friendly and welcoming, the breakfast was delicious and had many choices, and the rooms were clean and comfortable. Very affordable too! Can't ask for much more.

New clean and modern hotel. Relatively good value given its location. Beds are comfortable and rooms are large for this price point. Breakfast is really good too. Will definitely come again when next in Rome and on a budget.

The only downside i can really think of is - it is supposed to be a "design" hotel BUT really the design aspects are fairly minimum. There are two cool artsy chairs with faces in the back in the cafe, some "cool" clothes hangers in the room that form part of the design and simple use of colors within the room. That's about it. Not saying that it is bad - it is not, just do not expect to find great "design".

A very clean and extremely central hotel being within 1 or 2 minutes by foot from two tube stops in Via Giulio Cesare. It is also within easy walking distance of St Peters and the Vatican and the main shopping streets around Via Cola di Rienzo. The hotel is on the 4th floor of a large building and presumably has only got a few rooms. The room itself was quite small but well organised. They said that everything in the mini bar was free but there was almost nothing in there. The bathroom was well decorated and functional but also small. And what about the design? Well as far as I could tell that was all about those two chairs with faces on the back in reception and the clothes hangers in the rooms. Hotel was pretty cheap though at €113 per night. Make sure you don't have a car. Parking is a nightmare in this area up till 21:00 at night.

Dear Harmes,
thanks a lot for your feedback always very important for us. Sorry to hear about the design .... Consider that even for a design hotel, we have to be comfortable for all of you, trying not to think only to architecture.
As for the parking we are in one of the best place of the city and parking is quite difficult in all very big and important city centre. But after 2.30pm it is easy to find it.
Next time we will try to do the best for you and any question to let your stay being wonderful, will be appreciated.
Regards.
