“Great Stay in Rome at the Selene Hotel”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

Close to the main railway station was a bonus for us. Once we arrived we were greeted by the most professional of staff that were so helpful during our short visit. We were given helpful hints on how to see as much of Rome as one can on a short stay. Without this help and advice our stay would have been less productive from a sightseeing perspective. The hotel was under refurbishment during our stay but our room was excellent, clean, comfortable a quite large. We couldn’t fault anything, nor should we as our stay was truly enjoyable in all respects. Breakfast was a buffet and there was a good selection of food on offer. This is a great hotel in our opinion and one that we would return to and certainly have recommended to others that are travelling to Rome.

We stayed here for 4 nights in June. All staff was very helpful (we had a LOT of questions) and friendly, our room and bathroom were clean, spacious and comfortable. Rome noises barely bothered us (not much can be done about the car horns in traffic). Breakfast was lovely - something for everyone. We would definitely go back.

Loved this boutique hotel. The newly renovated rooms were very large and comfortable. We liked the little extras in the room, kettle and packets of tea, small bar refrigerator and thick luxury towels. Staff were excellent. We liked being close to transportation and we used the Leonardo Express train both to and from the airport. Lots of restaurant and bistro options nearby. The breakfast, which was included was wonderful. Would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Fourth floor or higher as the breakfast room is on the third floor.

Dear Collen,

thank you very much for marvellous review.

I am very happy to read that you have had an enjoyable stay here with us and that both the service and the location were so to your satisfaction. I am especially glad that you have appreciated the complimentary amenities that we provide in our rooms: i can definitely say that not all 3 stars hotels provide such amenities, hence your definition "Boutique Hotel" suits us just fine.

Thank you very much once again, we look forward to having you with us again in the future.

Kind regards

Selene's staff was very accommodating, the hotel clean and modernized, and even with a corner room, quiet at night. The location near enough to the train station was perfect for rolling baggage, as well as close to all city transportation---even though Rome is a walking city, if you really want to experience the full flavor. The reviewer who was negative about the breakfast must be very very hard to please indeed. I am a "breakfast person", and the selection, including hard and soft boiled eggs, bacon, toast, two juices, cheese, salami, ham, cereal, good coffee, and a variety of sweets is very hard to come by in Italian hotels at a similar price. I will definitely stay there again...as early as next year!

thank you for your wonderful review of the Hotel Selene Roma.

I am also very pleased to read that you appreciated the hotel's style and decoration: all our 40 rooms are now renovated and redesigned so it is always very gratifying to receive praises.

I am glad that you have enjoyed our offer for the breakfast buffet in the morning and i thank you for taking the hotel's side regarding another guest's complaint: it's a simple matter of opinions so i understand.

Thank you for the lovely recommendation and we look forward to welcoming you back again..."as early as next year".

We stayed at Hotel Selene for 4 nights. It's a great hotel, room was comfortable and very clean. Good selection of food at breakfast and the staff were very helpful and pleasant. I had concerns about the area around the Termini station before I stayed here based on what I had read but these were unfounded and it was a very safe area with lots of shops nearby and very close to the metro station. It's a great location and easily within walking distance of the Colosseum and many restaurants to choose from.

Dear Lauren,

I am delighted to read such a great review.

It is such a joy to read that our team has been helpful and pleasant at every opportunity they had. I am especially pleased that you found our location convenient: you've figured it out from yourselves that we are located on the "bright side" of Termini Station, right next to the Opera House. I will certainly pass on to our wonderful housekeeping team your acknowledgement regarding our hotel's cleanliness.

The entire team and I all look forward to welcoming you back to the Hotel Selene Roma.

Kind regards

This was a cute little hotel within a 5 minute walk to Termini station. The hotel was clean and comfortable, also more modern than many in Rome. The room was small, however this was to be expected. Located near tons of great restaurants and close to metro stations, however a little far if you are looking to walk to some of the main sites. We walked from the hotel to the Trevi Fountain and Spanish steps and it took around 20 minutes. The staff were all very nice and helpful, and even helped us purchase our Vatican Museum tickets online (skip the line!). The morning breakfast is very good, consisting of sliced meats, cheese, croissants and pastries, hard boiled eggs, yogurt, cereal, breads with nutella and jam, juice and a small selection of fruit. They also had a self-serve cappuccino/coffee/latte machine. There is a grocery store 2 minutes down the street, as well as a pharmacy. Overall we had a great time at this hotel and would definitely return while in Rome.

The location was fantastic, so close to the Termini train station... maybe an 8 minute walk in a very safe area. Our rooms were big, nice and clean, but it was the friendly helpful staff who really made our stay pleasurable! We had a 7:30AM train to Herculaneum one day, and the staff prepared "breakfast to go" bags for us the night before! Very thoughtful!
Would stay there again!
