Reviewed 7 July 2012

These guys own a couple of buildings around the top end of Piazza Novona and we stayed in a building that was over 500 years old. Well appointed rooms in every respect and the operators were as helpful as could be, In a busy section this Hotel Primavera has a great location. Price was great compared to the other options close by.

The hotel is located in the heart of Rome, only a few steps away from Piazza Navona.
The room is large with high ceilings, but a little depressing. However for this price and this location, can you expect to get more?
Breakfast was a fun experience . it seems as if you are a guest in somebody's flat.

When we arrived, the woman opened the door and left to get the key. She took quite a while and so we just stood outside the door waiting...and waiting...and waiting. After being shown our room, we were surprised at how large it was. There was a fantastic view on the fifth floor, but it was generally unclean. The first day we were there, one of the towels they had given us was disgusting...it smelled like SERIOUS body odor. They did not keep soaps and such stocked in the bathroom, and the hand towels weren't very professional. I felt gross touching them. Keep in mind that there is ONE BATHROOM for the entire floor. One of the people next to the bathroom banged on the wall while my partner was in the shower because the water was hitting the wall...you should hope you don't get that room. There is no light in the shower, so you feel like you are entering a dungeon. I wouldn't say the location is great either. The good thing is that there is a cab stand right outside the door...literally. Unfortunately, it's VERY loud outside, so we had to put white noise on to drown out the screaming people (and we were on the 5th floor.) The bed was worn down and the wall was dirty. I would probably go elsewhere next time I'm in Rome.

Room Tip: Top floor is probably best due to noise. I think there are rooms with bathrooms though, so I'd d...

Dear our client,

His email is very important to us.

We apologize for any inconvenience.

We would like only to point out that some statements are incorrect.

The external bath is used for only 2 rooms.

The other floor rooms have private baths.

The beds and mattresses follow the guidelines of safety and comfort for 2-star hotels.

It 'possible that the light in the shower was not working but during his stay we had no complaints from you.

The linen is washed inside the structure.
If what has happened says we really truly sorry.

Best Regards
Hotel Manager
Michele Nannelli

My friend and I stayed here for a couple of days and loved it. You can't beat the price for the location and the family who owns it was very cute, friendly, and helpful. We stayed in the room with the disconnected bathroom down the hall, which made it cheaper than the other rooms. (Being used to hostel living, this was no problem for us.) The free breakfast isn't much to talk about, but even if it was, we probably still would have gone out for cappucinnos and pastries anyways so it wasn't a problem. We had a great view from our window, the location was amazing, the building was nice, and the room was perfect for what we needed it for. The grandma of the family even drove us to the airport for a very reasonable rate. She was hilarious and it definitely beat having to argue with taxi drivers trying to rip you off. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Rooms with disconnected bathroom are cheaper and still great.

Inexpensive and adequate by Rome standards. Absolutely great location between Navona and Campo de Fiore. It could be cleaner; we asked for and did not get a shower to be cleaned. The street noise may be difficult for people not used to cities, especially Italian cities. We would spend a few more euros elsewhere next time.

We recently stayed at Hotel Primavera with another family with young children, and thought we got good value for money, in an excellent location. This is an older hotel, in a residential apartment building, with small bathrooms (yes, there was some mold in ours) but airy bedrooms. The location was SUPERB - between Piazza Novona and Campo Di Fiori, with easy access to many of the main bus lines we needed to get around, and walking distance from fantastic eateries all around. The Pantheon is only 5 min. walk. We could even walk to the Forum and Colosseum. The breakfast was basic 'Italian style" - coffee or tea, bread, butter, jam. Vittorio will most likely offer you a jug of americano coffee, but I found out (on our last day there!) that he has an espresso machine as well. The streets around the hotel are quite noisy at night and early in the morning, so keep your windows closed if you don't like to be bothered by the noise.

TIP - there is an old guy who cooks and sells delicious corn on the cob in the piazza right in front of the hotel. He adds some butter, salt, spicy spices (upon request) and lemon juice. Delicious! You MUST try it! He only works at night.

Recently visited Rome for pleasure and really enjoyed my vacation. I stayed at the Hotel Primavera located south of Piazza Navona and right beside Camp di Fiori which I thought was the most centrally situated location within walking distance to all the main attractions and sites. The hotel staff were superb and the hotel was good as well. The rooms are comfortable and very clean. I would recommend this hotel in a heartbeat.
