“Hotel Grifo-our home in Rome”
Reviewed 3 November 2013

We had our 4th stay at the Hotel Grifo-for 3 nights October 9th-12th 2013.The area immediately around the hotel is so interesting,full of artisanal stores,great restuarants etc
The staff greeted us like family :Alessandro ,Rosa and Angela particularly made us welcome.
The wifi was very reliable,breakfast was fresh and suggestions regarding restaurants,local customs and less touristy destinations were particularly appreciated.
We cannot go past the Grifo because the staff there really care.We had a first floor double room at the front overlooking the street which wasn't at all noisy.

Excellent suggestions from the staff on transport and other useful information such as when to visit the Colosseo,, where to buy your entry ticket, when to visit the Vatican, and so much more.
Great help on finding typical Italian restaurants in the area with great quality for reasonable prices.

Great location and great staff.
Would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Rome.

Good location and perfect staff, they gave us quite usefull information! The rooms are small but comfortable, we slept quietly in the middle of the town. Great restaurants without spending a lot of money.

Me and my family, husband and two kids 10 and 7 years old, stayed at Hotel Grifo for 5 nights. Although the rooms are quite old and need some renovation we loved it for several reasons. You cannot have a better location if you want to skip taxi and walk through the oldest parts of Rome, and we got fine help from the staff with everything. They helped us get in to the Colosseo without having to stand in line, and they had suggestions were to go to eat, to restaurants that are not just tourists and overpriced. Everything worked well and if we get back we will stay at the same hotel. Big hearts and real people weigh more than luxury.

The Title speaks for itself. 5 to 10 minute walk to ancient city etc. Alexandro (and Rosa) recommendations for food, transportation were great. The hotel staff went out of their way to make our stay as comfortable as possible.

I would come back again.

Room Tip: room 40. Your door opens on the terrace. Great place for a glass of wine and some cheese.

This hotel is in a perfect location with amazing staff. All the sites are within 10 minutes walking distance. The hotel is in a quiet, less touristy area with amazing restuarants and cafes surrounding it! The staff are so amazing and helpful and really give you the ins and outs of Rome. Would recommend this hotel to everyone! My husband and I will definitly be back! Allesandro is amazing and because of him we learned so much about Rome and Italy itself! He was always there for any questions and suggestions we needed and sent us to the most amazing restaurants! Thank you so much!

Perfect location. The staff was amazing. When we first checked in we were given a map with all the cool places to visit in the area, as well as all the places to avoid due to pick pockets. My boyfriend and I don't like touristy spots and like to hang around locals and this location was perfect for doing so. The room was small but what else do you expect? Wi fi was perfect and that is always something very important to me! Overall, so thankful this was where we ended up staying. We will definitely be back!
