“Good central city hotel”
Reviewed 8 March 2014

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for six nights in February 2014, we flew from Heathrow to Rome by BA and then caught the coach (which was so easy to find and pay, 4 euro pp each way) to Termini station which took about 45 mins and walked to the Hotel which was easily found (having checked on google earth before we left home) whilst there is renovation work being carried out at the hotel the reception area is on the 3rd floor which is easily accessible via a lift, however there are two small flights of stairs to reach the lift which for disabled travellers could be a problem. Check in was smooth and problem free, we were given a map of the city and lots of information on safety around the city etc., during the week the staff on duty (we dealt with Anthony and Gabriel) were really helpful and informative, they printed off information for us and nothing was too much trouble , both staff members were excellent and a credit to the Hotel. Our room was clean, comfortable and well decorated, we had nice clean bedding twice during our stay and towels, toiletries and tea, coffee etc were replenished every day, there was plenty of choice for breakfast including bacon, boiled eggs, toast, cold meats, cheese, fruit salad,croissants,cake and pastries and a choice of fruit juice, tea, coffee and hot chocolate. The hotel is central and walking distance from Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain and Pantheon, Colosseum, the Opera House, St. Maria Maggiore Church and the Church of St. Peter in Chains, we took the metro to the Vatican and St. Peter's which was easy (instructions were available in English and other languages) and cost 1.50 euro each. We also did the red Hop on Hop off bus tour which although when you read about the HOH bus tours have a lot of bad press, we thoroughly enjoyed and gave us a good grounding on Rome. During the day we found stopping for coffee or gelato was sufficient for us and then in the evening we enjoyed eating in several different restaurants, and although all good, the only one we returned to was La Galina Bianca which was really good, superb pizza cooked in a traditional oven, a wide variety of pasta, huge salads and a really nice sparkling house wine. If you want a table on a Saturday evening I would definitely recommend booking. All in all an amazing 7 days in Rome.

Room Tip: We only had a shower in our room, if you need a room with a bath request one before you travel.

Hotel is located in easy walking distance of Train and Bus stations as well as main bus stop for the various city tour buses. Staff were very helpful and freely gave advice. Hotel is modern and well decorated and breakfasts were more than adequate for setting us up for the day. There was renovation work going on in one part while we were there but it was unobtrusive and caused us no inconvenience. Our bed was firm to say the least and I feared some sleepless nights. Couldn't be more wrong - I slept like a baby every night! (don't know if that was because of the bed or tiredness of sightseeing followed by meal and wine). Recommend hotel as good base for city break.

Dear richard,

thank you for the posting a positive comment regarding your stay at us.

I am glad that you have enjoyed many aspects of your stay and i further thank you for highlighting these on your review.

Please let me clarify the intensive refurbishment that we have gone through: it has actually never affected the quality of our guest's stays because from time to time we have entirely closed every hotel's wing that was going to be under renovations.

In fact many guests on previous reviews, just like you, were saying that the refurbishment did not interfere with their stay and i confirm you also that we have not received complaints about the cleannes of our hotel or the noise coming from the workers.

Both the room and the bed where you have stayed and slept are about 3 weeks old (positive effects of a renovation) and i am glad that you have eventually appreciated its convenience.

Thank you again for your review and for recommending our hotel; we look forward to welcoming you again in the future.

Best regards

Gabriele Milano

Myself and friends stayed for two nights last weekend. The rooms were spacious and clean and very comfortable. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The hotel is within walking distance of all the famous sights, Spanish steps, Trevi fountain, Vatican as well as good transport links if you don't want to walk. All in all a gem in the city and I would definitely return.

We staid for 4 nights in hotel selene. It is really close to termini statioband also republica so no problem to take the subway just 5 Minutes from the 2 stations.
You can also do everythingb without transport, if you like walking.
I booked a standard room for 2 that was renovated. The room was clean, a little tv and a sage. We had a bathtub in the bathroom that was clean also. I booked directly on the site of the hotel and as a gift we had the minibar free for our hole stay! I have never sen that before and we really appreciated that.
The breakfast is a buffet withbeggd and bacon, yoghurt or pastries. There is a coffee machine but you can ask fresh made espresso. The quality of the Orange juice should be changed, we did not like it. But that's the only negative point.
We really had an excellent stay, they helped us by printing our return tickets. Everyone was really nice and helpful. I recommend this hotel. It's really good price/quality.

You KNOW we like this hotel as we have stayed five times. It is now almost completely renovated and the rooms are nice. The front desk staff is very professional and accommodating as is the breakfast room staff. Close to the Termini train station, the HOHO buses and the metro. Great hotel, great location!!!
