“So helpful :)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014

We stayed here last week and were pleased to find that it equalled our Best Western experience in Verona (Hotel Capuleti). The breakfast offered a variety of hot and cold,sweet and savoury food, served in a bright, clean and cheery room just off reception.

Our room 412 was a deluxe and this afforded us some extra space and as it was on the corner our bedroom had large windows on two aspects. When the windows were shut all noise from the street was excluded, but when open we could hear the street musician serenading customers at the adjacent cafés with a selection if italian favourites.

The large bathroom housed a four piece suite in an antique style which was in keeping with the overall style of the building. Plenty of hot water and good pressure so no problems filling the bath or having a shower.

Staff were always helpful and dealt with any requests including printing out our e tickets for the Vatican. The free wifi was brilliant and we had no problems picking a signal up.

Very convenient for the train station and we used both the metro and overground rail services with ease. In addition we also took a taxi from the hotel to the Vatican, which was quick and relatively inexpensive.

The air conditioning can be controlled from within the room and we maintained our cool at all times whilst the temperatures soared outside. It was a little disappointing not to have a fridge in the room but if you ask at the bar they will gladly provide ice in a bucket so drinks can be kept cool.

To top it all when we were on our way to the airport my husband realised he had left his MP3 player in the room. One phone call, panic over and arrangements to locate the item and contact us to arrange shipping in place. The said item us now on its way back to England . Many thanks to all for the fantastic customer service.

Though it is part of an international chain , the hotel is relatively small and retains it's unique identify and service never felt impersonal. If you want good value for money it is a very good choice.

Really a beautiful hotel from the classic lobby and lounge to the elevators and the well kept rooms. Inside rooms have less of a view but a balcony and more space. Location is also only 4 blocks
To the Termini. Service was friendly but just very slightly aloof? Overall I would stay again for he charm.

We chose this hotel based on reviews and combination of price, location, cost. The hotel was very clean. Rooms were well appointed, clean, good water pressure, sound system in rooms, comfortable beds. We needed a place for me, my wife and our two teenage sons. Most European rooms only accommodate 2 so the same applied here...we needed two rooms. We paid 139 Euros per room per day. I emailed my boarding passes to the front desk and they had them printed for us and waiting for us when we checked out. Taxi to airport was there within 3 minutes. The hotel was about a 25 minute walk to the Colosseum which was fine for us. Hotel is also just a couple blocks from the main train terminal where you can also pick up the metro and on/off tour busses.

Room Tip: Sleep quality did not get 5 stars since the beds were singles (2 per room). They were comfortable n...

I am just leaving Rome and Hotel Canada this morning. This place is clean and fresh. The rooms are well furnished and have everything you need. Front desk staff could not have been more helpful and friendly. There is a bar in the lobby with very inexpensive beverages and free snacks. The breakfast is a large buffet from eggs to desserts! Michela in the breakfast room is very friendly and efficient. This place has it all working right. Located near two different metro lines.

Hotel Canada is a fabulous place to stay when in Rome. Rooms are large and have great charm, elegant drapery and decorations, antique furniture. I have never stayed at a hotel where staff has been so accommodating, especially Riccardo from Peru, the bartender.

Stayed here for 4 nights as part of our holiday to Italy to visit the attractions of Rome. We were not disappointed. The location from the Termini, Metro and bus was ideal. Loved the quirky lift to our lovely room which was spotlessly clean with a comfortable four poster bed. Hotel amenities met all our requirements. Lounge/bar area provided a comfortable retreat after a days sightseeing where Richard, the person in charge of this area, was the perfect host in supplying drinks and nibbles to meet our requirements. Overall after searching the internet we feel we made the right choice for our stay in respect of facilities and location. Would definitely stay again and would thoroughly recommend this hotel.

We had booked into the Hotel Canada off the back of fellow Trip advisor reviews.

We had 4 nights here arriving quite late, but check in was fine. Very small (if quaint)lift and we had to manage up to floor 5 ourselves with two heavy cases.

We had a very nice room. Deluxe double. Plenty of space and with a window/balcony which opened out onto the central courtyard. Nice size bathroom. Shower was a bit iffy. Especially if there was a change in water pressure!

Staff were pretty good overall. That was a particular plus.

Wi Fi was great - password from reception.

Breakfast was also pretty good. It could get pretty congested however. You took your chance regarding getting a table. Pastry, cold cuts, rolls etc were plentiful. Hot food was a bit iffy and we ended up swerving.

We ended up having tea/drinks some nights in the bar and that was also good.

We had been concerned re reviews concerning 'noisy' area etc. Have to say we found the opposite. Very quiet. There were a few bars cafes close by but nothing like we imagined. Narrow streets and can feel a little unnerving late at night. Especially if you come from Termini. Closest subway though is Castro Pretoria. 5 mins walk from hotel.

We purchased the Roma pass and felt this was value for money. 72 Euro and we used it on the bus, subway and got into the Forum/Palatine Hill and Castle San Angelo. We also took a day trip out to Tivoli and the Villa D'este. Stunning gardens, waterfalls and interiors. Caught the subway to Ponte mammolo, then Cotral bus to Tivoli. Hadrian's villa also close by but next time.

Hotel Canada fully deserves the plaudits. slight downside for us was location. We tended to be in the historical/Trastevere (good for restaurants/bars) areas and we then had a bit of a journey back to Hotel. You could of couse get taxis but we felt next time we would prefer to find something a bit more 'in the action' .

After leaving Rome, we were on our way to cruise out of citciveccia. Wheeled our cases to station. Not easy with pavements but 10/15 mins. You have to watch in Termini. Fortunately we were ok, but you do get asked a lot if you need a hand. Train to citciveccia (1st and only £26 for two) was good. At station, we didn't see any lifts - must be there. Ended up bouncing cases down flight of stairs. Left and up more stairs then right along promenade to coach pickup at port gates. 20 mins tops and as long as reasonable fit, its fine.
