“A definite recommendation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 February 2014

The Tirreno Hotel is perfectly located between the Termini Station and the historical center of Rome. Great value for money and a friendly staff make every stay a pleasure. 2014 was already our sixth stay.

Room Tip: The rooms to the back are quieter; the rooms towards the street have a nice view. Some rooms on the...

This was unfortunately the worst luck we had with a hotel, and we're generally pretty generous with our reviews. Although the hotel is located within walking distance to transit and main attractions, the immediate area really offers nothing. The wi-fi in the hotel didn't work which was a huge let down for us. When questioning the staff, they admitted that there are often problems for people with iPhones/iPads but haven't been able to resolve it. The hotel room itself was clean, but the hallways smelled of old cigarette smoke. The breakfast was terrible as others have suggested. It was a croissant and orange juice, with packaged soup crackers. We wouldn't stay here again.

Room Tip: Seemed that rooms on the lower floors, or closer to the staircase, seemed to get better wi-fi signal...

Dear Sir/Madam,
We are very sorry that your staying in our Hotel was so unpleasant.
Anyway advices of any kind are greatly appreciated.
The continental breakfast includes: fresh croissants, bread, all kind of jams, nutella, biscuits, crackers, corn flakes, coffee, cappuccino, tea, hot chocolate and red orange juice, very common here.I remind you this is a 3 stars hotel.
The free wifi is a TELECOM 20 mb DSL connection which works perfectly, according to the speed test made by my Iphone and Ipad the average speed is Download 15.15mbps,Upload 0.76Mbps.,too bad I can't post a screenshot.
We apologize for any inconvenience we might have caused, we are currently monitoring all day the wifi status but when there are 50 people connected at the same time the network can get slower.
The hotel is all no smoking, unfortunately many people don't respect the rules smoking despite the smoking bans around the hotel.
I'd like to have a solution for that but there's not, people should just learn to respect the common good manners.
The hotel is safely and securely located in the heart of ancient Rome in the Rione Monti
Rione Monti won’t say anything to you but it’s the name of the neighborhood you mentioned offering nothing, try to google it and you’ll realize what I’m talking about or take a simple look at the other reviews.
We’ll keep working to improve our services.
Thanks

This place proved to be a good hotel to see all of Rome with easy walk to central station. The rooms were comfortable and clean. The hotel was also quiet with friendly fron reception staff. Well suited to travellers who are on a budget.

The location was excellent. Neighborhood was fine. Close to nice restaurants. A couple of blocks from the Colosseum. Walking distance to the Metro. The front desk staff was friendly helpful and nice. Breakfast staff was disgruntled. Breakfast itself was poor, dry pre-packaged cookies/cereal/bars, croissants/rolls were dry. The bedroom will definetely do with new mattresses.
Recommended if you are looking for a central friendly place to stay in. The restaurant in front of the hotel serves exceptional food

We had an excellent time in Rome and this hotel was a big part of it. The hotel is centrally located and you can walk to a lot of attractions. The Colloseum is a 15 minute walk and Roma Termini is a 10 minute walk. The staff is very friendly and make you feel at home. The quadruple room was adequate for our stay. It was small but had everything we needed. The breakfast is typical continental fare but the coffee is awesome. There is a metro station 5 minutes away that will take you to the Vatican and the Spanish steps/ Trevi fountain area. Recommended if you are looking for a central friendly place to stay in. The restaurant in front of the hotel serves exceptional food as well making dinner special.

Breakfast staff was disgruntled. Breakfast itself was poor, dry pre-packaged cookies/cereal/bars, croissants/rolls were dry. Coffee was awful. The rooms had 2 twin size beds pushed together, which moved away from each other every single night. Bathroom was small, odly build, shower stall was too small and was not clean (mildew around the bottom and underneath the soap dish), no place to put toiletries, Price of the hotel was fair enough.

This hotel is located within a 10 minute walk from the train station, and 10 minute walk to the colosseum and forum. Breakfast is awful, consisting of a stale bread roll and croissant each morning + a basket of shop bought biscuits/cake. Coffee was warm sludge. Breakfast staff were disgruntled and surly. Single room was small and dirty. Nice bathroom but dirty and drains blocked. Very quiet location although down a dark alley, so not great for the single traveller. Overall, great location but only book if you can put up with all the downsides!

Dear Guest,
Thanks for your comment, advices of any kind are greatly appreciated.
In our next breakfast staff meeting I will discuss with them about your observations.
The continental breakfast includes: fresh croissants, bread, all kind of jams, nutella, biscuits, crackers, corn flakes, coffee, cappuccino, tea, hot chocolate and red orange juice, just to be precise. In describing what you said is awful.
The sizes of the rooms are indicative of the typical European three-star hotel and in this case specifically their historic origins, this is not yesterday’s just built Holiday Inn.
Candidly, I am surprised by the delay in reporting your displeasure.
Enduring your stay you could have discussed it with us if the room was really dirty and the drains blocked, easy things to fix while you’re here, impossible when you are back home.
The hotel is safely and securely located in the heart of ancient Rome on the Esquiline.
The shady alley you mentioned is Via San Martino ai Monti which is in truth one of the original Roman roads which leads to the still existing city entrance arch located just two blocks from the hotel.
Try to google Rione Monti and you’ll realize what I’m talking about or take a simple look at the other reviews.
We’ll keep working to improve our services.
Thank you.
Claudio Felici
