“Clean & Comfortable”
Reviewed 16 January 2014 via mobile

Stayed at the Amalfi on a last minute deal. The hotel is just down the road from Santa Maria Maggiore so is a good base to start from. The area is a little run down and although is fine in the day time, would be a little worrying at night for the older clientele. The hotel itself is clean and and comfortable, fantastic shower and pleasant English speaking hosts. The rooms are on the smaller side but that doesn't really matter as you will be out most of the time sampling what Rome has to offer. The walls are very thin so you can here what's going on in other rooms which can be a bit of a nuisance, but saying that it didn't stop us having a decent nights sleep. It's very near the Colliseum and not far from the nearest Metro station. A couple of good restaurants nearby, pricey but you are in Rome. Found an excellent bar at the end of the street called ipastichio or something similar, cocktails, pastrys etc all reasonably priced, do not go to the cafe on the corner of the basilica as very over priced, 6 euro for one coke, more fool them, never went back, all in all we had a great time, would I come back, probably, thank you Amalfi for a lovely stay.

I stayed here over New Years Eve. the personnel was very friendly, the location good but the room was very small and had a view on a dead wall. It was kind of pricy but that could have been because of the holidays.

Dear Guest;

We're sad that the size of the room didn't satisfy you.

If we had known we would have offered a more comfortable room.

We remind all customers that we are always available for any need :)

We hope to host you in the future.

Hotel Amalfi was a small hotel a few minutes away from the station - very nice rooms and great service for the price paid. Breakfast was good, staff generally friendly and helpful, a relatively quick walk to the Colosseum and very close to the train station - but a little bit far away from the "heart" of Rome, which makes going out at night a little harder since it's a very far walk from the action. I would definitely still recommend it.

I spent a night at the Hotel Amalfi in Rome last week. I was looking for a hotel with good reviews on Trip Advisor and a pleasant comfortable place to sleep. I definitely found it at the Hotel Amalfi. From the moment I was greeted by the charming and handsome Francesco to the moment I left I had a great experience!

The room was small-ish but completely spotless, and had everything I needed. The bathroom was also smallish (typical European) but also spotless. Although the hotel is as others have mentioned on a busy street it is well insulated and I had a lovely night of sleep. There are tons of restaurants and shopping nearby, and it is also located very near the Termine as well as a taxi stand for quick transport.. It is also within very close walking distance of the Colliseum and Forum which made for an interesting evening stroll.

I would definitely stay again. It was a very, affordable and comfortable place to stay--perhaps even to see the handsome Francesco again!

The Amalfi is just a step from SS Maria Maggiore, on a busy street (Via Merulana), but with good sound insulation. Add to this a firm mattress, and we slept perfectly well. The staff all spoke some English and were charming and welcoming. Rooms are fairly small in this tall, narrow building, but spotlessly clean, with good water pressure for a morning shower. Breakfast was adequate if rather unexciting (tinned fruit salad rather than fresh, we suspected). The Amalfi makes an excellent base for exploring Rome, and is an easy walk from Termini railway station with all its transport connections.

I am very late in sending this review, but I feel like I just have to send it anyway.

We stayed here in early April and it was wonderful.

I picked the hotel based on its location and ratings and I am so glad I did! The neighbourhood was great and such a short distance from everything! Plenty of shopping and dining options right outside the door. The room was clean and had an amazing view of the Basilica.

The coffee in the breakfast room was heavenly, but if it is too packed there is a bakery steps away as well that we found really good.

The bathrooms and elevator were quite small, but I think that is pretty common in Europe by North American standards. It actually added to the experience of being somewhere different!

The truly wonderful thing though was the staff. Unbeknownst to me, my boyfriend had called ahead and explained that he would be proposing on the trip. The people at the hotel conspired with him to make the arrangements. They booked us into the room with the large balcony, arranged for the room to be filled with flowers the night that he proposed and had a lovely champagne chilling for us and chocolates when we got back. I was so surprised and really impressed with all the details.

Thanks Amalfi, for helping make an amazing day even more amazing! We plan on seeing you again on many anniversary trips to come!

One of the most time consuming process I had ever, to choose the right place to start the 1st 4 days in our Italian tour. As we needed the hotel to serve us as the base and start point for each full day of self-touring around, it should be well positioned and central, near the start and end point of this visit – the Termini station. The room should enable us to fall asleep at the end of the day and start a delightful following morning with a nice smile of the staff and a welcoming breakfast. The time I invested making the right pick for us was the key point of the great visit we had in Rome. We might have had another choice as good, we couldn't find better.

Many years ago, a nice and handsome couple met at the coastal town of Amalfi, Southern Italy. After getting married and later on deciding to open a family run little hotel in Rome, they called it after the town they met. This is why there's a Amalfi hotel at Rome.

So we arrived to Rome in one sunny day of mid-September. The welcome email message with hints and some info was a great start that became even greater when we met Francesco, the hotel owners son, who did his utmost to let us feel comfortable, as if we arrived to our next few day's home. His answers for all the regular new-comers questions great recommendations and friendliness. Thanks you SO much Francesco, for the hospitality, kindness and willingness. You are the raw model for any hotel receptionist. Superb service and welcome!

The room 314 we had was small. At the beginning we figured it's too small and Francesco said he could move us to a larger room the next morning but then we thought we should manage with what we got and so we did. After all, this room served us without a problem and we ended up enjoying it. It was very clean and quiet and the sleep quality was very good.

Every morning Francesco's mother is at the dining room, checking that all is OK and nothing is missing out of the various assortments. What a breakfast and what a lovely atmosphere she and her extremely friendly worker are spreading around!

Thank you so much, hotel Amalfi staff for an unforgettable hospitality. Next time in Rome, It'll be most easy to have our hotel of choice: Hotel Amalfi. This is why.
Just few steps away from the basilica santa maria maggiore.
Arrivederci!

Room Tip: If you must have a larger room for 2, ask for it to begin with.
