Hotel Oxford
Ranked #345 of 1,267 Hotels in Rome
Reviewed 28 July 2006

My family and I have recently returned home from Rome after a family wedding and we stayed at Hotel Oxford. The hotel is a home away from home and the staff were most polite, courteous and helpful. Daniel who worked at the bar was the most helpful bartender that I have ever personally come across. He was always on hand to give us directions to different places, or give us some street smart information. He also makes a great cup of tea !!! After a couple of hours walking around Rome, I needed it !!! I personally wish him all the best in life and in his career. Our room was big enough to accommodate a family of two adults and two children. The airconditioning was a god send. Most of the tourist attractions are within walking distance from this hotel but the bus and taxi service is also on its doorstep if you don't fancy walking. The hotel was that nice that even our families that were staying in other hotels all spent most of their time in our hotel because of its friendly atmosphere. I would recommend this hotel to anyone heading to Rome. Thank you Hotel Oxford for providing us with a lovely stay in Rome and giving us some great memories. The Metcalfe Family, Ireland.

We stayed in a triple room and it was spacious and clean. We actually had two bedrooms (one with two twin beds and one with a double bed) so we were not cramped. The air conditioning worked very well, which seemed to be a rare occurrence in Italy. The hotel staff were very polite and helpful and made us feel welcome-- they were happy to call a taxi for us and the restaurants they recommended were very good. The breakfast was excellent. The only drawback is that the hotel is not very close to ancient Rome and the Metro stop is a 15-min walk. We had to take taxis to/from most of our destinations because it was a long walk back after being on our feet all day.

Overall, we had a very pleasant stay and would definitely recommend this hotel to others.

I got marrid in Rome in October of 2005 and stayed in the Oxford after seeing in recommended in a few guide books. The staff were excellent, the lovely Rosalba on reception along with the rest of the staff were more than helpful and organised many things for us without question. We had 13 friends staying there also and everyone was very well looked after. A complementry bottle of champagne in our room when we returned from the church was a nice touch. Mario in the bar is an institution to himself.
The Oxford has a great location in a very safe and central area, with bus links 1 minute walk away, and all the main attractions within 20 minutes, 10 in a taxi.
Rome is not known for its great hotel accomadation - unless 5 star is an option for you - and it does cost more than most European Capitals - and although the rooms at the Oxford are small, you won't be spending much time in your room anyhow as there is so much to do and see in Rome. We found it clean with a good restaurant and bar menu.
As for some of the negative reviews I've read of the hotel and its staff on this site, it seems that maybe some people came to the hotel with greater expections than I did. For me it provided a great location, friendly staff(you have to friendly in return too you know), a bed that saw little sleep and the base for an unforgettable week.

My wife and I stayed here for five days in August 2005. We thoroughly enjoyed the hotel, all very friendly and so helpful, nothing seemed too much trouble. Service and meals were good and lovely to spend a late night at the bar. Will certainly stay here again on our next trip to Rome, within easy walking distance of just about everywhere inc the Terminii. The best free book on Rome we've seen anywhere available in the hotel.

We have just returned from a three night stay at the Hotel Oxford in Rome.

Our room was tiny and the bathroom even smaller. We were tempted to complain but decided that as we would be spending so little time in the room there was no point. Breakfast was poor: horrible croissants and no choice of anything other than a buffet.

I would recommend staying off of the Via Del Corso, far more central.

The hotel itself is actually pretty good and a good value (as far as pricing for a 3 star). The room my wife and I had was of ample size, clean, and a comfy bed. Thought the location was fine too, and as everyone else has noted many great little restaurants within walking distance. Taxi's are pretty cheap in Rome anyway if you need to get anywhere fast/further away. As for the negative (understanding that Rome is not known for its "customer service"), the front desk staff was exceptionally rude and arrogant. Do not expect any help from them for anything other then getting your room key and paying the bill.

If you want a tennis-court sized room, stay in a Sheraton or a Holiday Inn. This hotel is a clean, simple, European fare. Nicely appointed; good, reasonably-priced meals in the restaurant, and an acceptable walk from the Metro station, the Oxford suited three of us very well. It's in a safe neighborhood where one is not harrassed or afraid to search the odd street for a restaurant and we found several very good ones. A good base for a city visit.
