Reviewed 13 August 2013

The four of us stayed in two rooms at this hotel for a week. It was a great place, a safe distance away from both Vatican and downtown Rome (about 15 minutes walk).

The rooms are comfortable and are air conditioned. The only downside about this place was the shower. It is so tiny that you can literally only stand in there - nothing else. Very small space, but that shouldn't be a deal breaker for you.

Continental breakfast is included and is available everyday from 7:30 to 9:30am. It doesn't have a wide selection of food items, so don't expect much. It's enough to get you up and running and out the door with some energy. Oh, one more detail is that our queen size bed was actually two single beds side by side! Not sure if that is the case for every room though.

We got a really good deal for this place from booking.com. So you can give it a shot too.

A good hotel in quiet neighborhood two steps away from Lepanto metro station. The room for 3 persons was big enough, beds were comfortable. Breakfast was fine. The only negative parts were the small old elevator & the dusty terrace. Overall a good hotel with friendly staff.

Stayed here for six nights e/o May to b/o June. The bedroom with en suite bathroom had everything we needed. Everything very clean. Excellent staff who helped with anything and everything. Breakfast was good and plentiful. WiFi signal in the room was strong, plus there was a an in-room safe. Would definitely stay here on the next visit to Rome.

We have just arrived back from the beautiful eternal city of Rome. We had a fantastic time and what makes any holiday for us is a good Hotel.

The Hotel Gerber, a family run hotel is a ten minute stroll from the Vatican, 2 minutes from the Metro and 2 minutes for loads of buses, perfect location. The Hotel is very clean, our room was spacious, lovely bathroom, comfortable beds. fresh clean linen, towels changed every day, just wonderful. The staff are so so nice, particularly the gentleman who has worked there for 22 years or so in the Breakfast Room and of course Pietro, the Owner who is most welcoming charming and friendly. We have been to this Hotel 3 times and would not go anywhere else in Rome. Fantastico. George and Jean

Room Tip: We had a side room which was nice and quiet but the front rooms have a nicer view.

If you are looking for the pulse of Roma don't stay here - it's boring. If a reprieve from the hordes at the Spanish Steps, The Vatican, and Colliseum, etc. is what you want, then the Hotel Gerber is ideal. Two minutes from Lepanto Metro (A Line), 15 minutes walk down the exact street Hotel Gerber is located on to the Vatican Museum, with a fabulous upscale sushi restaurant next door and La Griglietta's (perfect mom and pop Italian bistro) a couple of blocks away, the Hotel Gerber is super easy and relaxing. Breakfast was a little light, even for Italy, but the owner is there in the morning to greet you with a smile. The rooms are updated, very clean and comfortable. Free wifi. the only issue we had was that the desk clerks are a little unhelpful. We asked for a travel agency and were sent to Playlife and few blocks away - which is a travel clothing store. Then we sent to Termini station, only to find the agency unhelpful. Oh well, we figured it out online so no worries - just a few frustrating and futile hours that could have avoided. When we asked for the nearest ATM, the clerk sent us one block down and to the left - but didn't mentioned to other four blocks to get to the banco. Oh well, if you don't expect too much from the two desk clerks, then you will be fine. We plan to sty again at the Hotel Gerber.
