“Very Good But 1 Thing...”
Reviewed 29 March 2013

I loved this hotel, they were soooo sooooo nice at the front desk and the room was small but thats what you get but very nice. However, one thing.... the bed!! I would have had a better night sleep on cardboard and to be honest i think it messed up my leg for a few days. By no means do I what to come accross as mean, this is more of a message to Le Petit to get a new bed :)
ps - great location..

The only good thing about this hotel is - staff, who is very friendly and lovely.
Rooms: disgusting, dirty and small, particularly our didn't lock from inside. Breakfast: cereal, coffee (which is nothing in common with italian true coffee), bread and jam.

Room Tip: Only 100Eur for total price more and You can book normal hotel.

A really good location, close to the train station, metro, bus stops, any kind of shops. It is easy to walk to any turistic location, 10 minutes to Fontana di Trevi.
The room was big enough, very clean, the bathroom really nice. The staff ( Gianni, Vito, Gaetano, Dorina, Andrea and a very nice old man ) is very nice and helpfull. Good advices to where to go and how to walk around. They make you feel like home.
Overall, it was the best location for the best vacation. Rome is amazing

Actually i knew that the hotel was not that great.... but what you gonna do when you have only several hours before the plane's landing?

To be short - there are a much better hotels in Rome in which I have stayed over the last years. It is not a stand alone hotel actually, the hotel is only several flats within a building... there will be advocates, doctors and etc among your neighbors. So it's more like an apartment or a "pansion" i'd say.

The best way to get a great Rome advantage is to Rome on a unpopular tourist dates - it's the only way to have a descent hotel and to avoid millions of tourists on the streets. Otherwise you get a worse type of experience.

Room Tip: There is one room with a big balcony, located at the hotel's corner

We stayed here for 2 nights. On our second day (5/27/2012), we were waiting in the hotel lobby on the second floor to be pick-up for a pre-paid tour (for Tivoli-Hadrian's Villa and Villa D'este tour.) In order to shorten the bus's waiting time, we decided to take the hotel elevator down to the street for pick up when the tour bus came at 2:30pm. Very unfortuntely, the hotel elevator stopped completely with a very loud sound as soon as we got in. We got stuck in their hotel elevator (just like the movie story.) We push the help button, the hotel staff, Gaetano Consini, came to tell us he would call for help. We waited for 45 minutes before we were free from elevator. By that time the tour bus had left. Gaetano Consini (hotel staff) told us he already communicated with the tour company (Vastours Company) and the company told him that Vastours would give us refund. I asked for his written statement about this and he refused to do so (even though I tried many ways, it did not work.) Worse it all, when I said to Gaetano, their hotel was responsible for our missing tour, he said that was not their fault at all. What a nightmare! So, I wrote an email to inform our travel agent at AAA in Sacramento, CA and copying to the hotel contact email about this incidence that afternoon. On the third day, when we were checking out to board a bus for a cruise, the hotel staff, Gaetano Consini, told my husband that we had to pay 8 dollars uro in cash because the city tax. We were surprised because our hotel stay was pre-paid and our travel agent told us that tax and service charge were included. We asked for receipt, and he refused. We were in a hurry, so, we did not argue and pay him. We did not think this extra payment was truth. What a rip off. By the way, neither Gaetano, nor any hotel staff had apologized to us for the elevator incidence or any unpleasant encounter with them. Our AAA agent already wrote a letter to their travel arrangement company two weeks ago, but she has not heard anything from anyone yet. Thus, we have not received our refund yet. I like people to know -- Not to trust Le Petit Hotel.

We recently stayed at Le Petit hotel on Via Torino about 8 blocks from the train station. However,
it is very close, about a block, to the Piazza Republica metro staion which takes you quickly to all the main attractions including the spanish steps, Piazza del Popolo, and the Vatican. The regular
room they gave us was very basic, small, and kind of drab. I had asked for a balcony room. We asked and they moved us to the larger and more attractive corner room with the balcony. It was a very nice, private balcony room for 20 Euros more per night. It's worth the extra and we used the balcony for drinks, reading, light snacks extensively. We were there 3 days, went down to the amalfi coast for 2 days, and then spent the last night back in Rome at the same hotel.
The staff ranges fro OK to great. Johnny is great! Internet generally only works near the front desk router. However, because the hotel seems to be only on the compact second floor it's only a few steps from the rooms with two comfortable chairs. The downside elements are the soap dispensers in the shower and bathroom sink. Awkward to use. Very strange toilet tissue dispenser dispenses one small sheet at a time. I would bring bar soap, shampoo and probably a roll of tissue next time. Other issue is noise. I know Rome is a big city but do they have to very loudly collect the commercial trash in the neighborhood between midnight and 1 A.M.? Not anything the hotel can do about that I'm sure.

Good location next to rome's (limited) metro system. The place is clean enough and had breakfast included. Rooms are ok but the shower is terrible if you want a hot show for more than 2min and also has next to no pressure.
