“bad experience”
Reviewed 17 July 2010

the hotel is very bad located. Far away of everything.....and the bus service in Rome is complicated because of the traffic. So we wasted a lot of time in the buses trying to get to the downtown instead of have fun and actually known the spectacular city of Rome.
Besides the receptionist were not nice...... always mad at everything......
And the hotel is old and the rooms not so clean.....
I would not get back to this hotel......

I found Hotel Caravel a very nice and convenient hotel. Roos were spacious and clean, although the bathroom was old and not very comfortable. Our room was at the backyard, so there was no noise!! The breakfast was good, although I did not like the coffee (my opinion) and I would like more things in the boufet!! Another, negative was that there was no mini bar at the whole Hotel!!! The staff was very helpfull and very polite. Outside the hotel, about 5 min walk, there was a bus station were you could go to the city centre of Rome in 15-20 minutes. The distance between the airport and the hotel is about 40-50 minutes and it is very easy to find your way and, of course you do not have to take a taxi (taxi at Rome are very expensive). I would definately recommend this hotel even though it is not near centre!!

1). Noisy hotel - The hotel has very thin walls so everything can be heard from outside and from the other rooms. Basically you will have very few hours of silence between maybe 12.00 am and 8.00 am - as of 8.30 am the cleaning starts and they do not care about customers anymore (the move beds, the use the very noisy vacuum clear, etc) - so very, very noisy hotel.
2). Ugly rooms - The rooms are old, old. Old furniture, ugly bathroom.
3). Poor breakfast - same menu everyday - 1 type of cheese, 1 type of salami, 1 type of bacon. Some cereals, and some sweets. That all - for us 1 week the same stuff was too much!
4). Location - 20 min from the city center with bus 160 (that passes very rarely) and buses 30, 130. Metro station was 15 min walk distance. To go to Termini central station you have to take bus 715 - aprox. 20 min.
I would advise not to choose it.

The first indication that this hotel was no good was in the taxi on the way to the hotel when the driver said I must have paid a very cheap price to book here...When i arrived i was somewhat worried about the location. There is absolutely nothing around the area still open, everything has been shut down and there was hardly another person on the street. I decided to go for a walk and found one other person who I asked about the area and why everything was shut down. They told me in the little english that they spoke that it wasn't a good area.
The hotel itself was very basic, clean enough but i would not ever stay there again. The staff were ok to me but I did hear them speaking to an old man who i must say was being very difficult and unreasonable but the staff were very rude to him and even laughed at him while he was talking to them.

We stayed there for 4 nights and we were satisfied.The room was air conditioned, nice and clean, towels were changed every day.The nearest metro was a bit too far, but there were many bus lines constantly passing nearby.
