“Wifi”
Reviewed 4 November 2011

location is good for short stay. Rooms are typical, but they have a crazy system of using the cable TV and Wifi. Be carefull on getting overcharged on your mobile phone, as the Wifi is not free. You can go to the Roma Termini to find a free Wifi hot spot. Breakfast was the worst during my entire time in Itlay.

Arrived Rome Oct 2010 and went directly to hotel from the Termini. The overall experience wasn't entirely unsatisfactory, however, the area where the Marconi is located is 2 blocks from Rome Termini and is not the most desirable area to be in. The receptionist (man) wasn't at all friendly. Hotel could use some updating.

We had to stay here when our itinerary changed, so we found vacancy at the Marconi on the fly. The receptionist was a real piece of work. He was very unfriendly and almost annoyed that we wanted to stay there for the evening. He said 3 things to us while we were there...the price per night for a room, the fact that he needed our credit card and passport, and then what room number we were in. We were basically on our own from there.

They claim to have free wifi, but it doesn't work (or we couldn't get to work with the help of the front desk, but with no avail), and they taut air conditioning in the rooms, but the hotel controls the thermostat.

However, the one of the few things they have going for them is that it is a great location. A 5-minute walk to the train station and very close to the Roman National Museum.

My hubby and I stayed at Marconi Hotel for 3 nites, superb location, literally mins from the Termini, we had paid a transfer fee of £65.00 (for us both - return) from the airport to the hotel, however, when arriving at airport we could have paid only 8 euros each, return, to get to the termini, which really is so close. Transport is so easy in Rome. The hotel was immaculately clean and tidy and reception staff very helpful. The map in Reception is a must have. The restaurant / pizzeria opposite the hotel on the corner is AMAZING, we had the nicest food there, and also found it to be the cheapest for food and drink! You can sit inside or out, and the staff were wonderful. Thoroughly enjoyable trip.

Reviewed 28 January 2011

I have started to use trip advisor alot for hotel information etc but have never written a review before. We stayed for 3 nights January 2011.
Marconi hotel itself is in a great location only about 10 mins walk from the Colleseum. The room was fairly big and clean but could have done with some general cosmetic work and the view from the window was a wall and someones parking space but then again the location more than made up for it. Tea and coffee making facilities (kettle and fridge) were a nice touch but the mini bar was very expensive, there is a shop less than a minute away from the hotel where water etc is only 30p for 2 litres rather than the 2 euros for 500ml (hotel price). We only stayed bed and breakfast and found the choices available for breakfast very good, cereal, bread, pastries, eggs, sausages, chips!!!!!!! lol fresh honey (you cut it off the honeycomb), fruit, yohurts and juices, coffee, tea etc.
The tranfer from the airport was about 100 euros return (i think that the hotel is about 30 km away) and the taxis do appear to have set prices.
Sight seeing- Rome is not a very well signposted city but a map was available free of charge from the hotel. As the weather was nice we walked to the Vatican (it took about an hour) but there were lots of things to see along the way. The Trevi fountain and Spanish steps should def not be missed and the street entertainers on a night were fantastic.
I would recommend taking a DVD or book to unwind with after a day of sight seeing as although the hotel has sattelite TV with over 300 channels there was only 1 english speaking news channel (CNN i think) and a couple of music channels.
A new charge from the government came in last summer and a charge of 2 euros per night per person is payable on check out.

we are a group of 9 people and all of us are of the opinion that this hotel was an absolutely right choice. Very helpful and polite stuff (Roberta is super) ! owing to the volcano ash clouds we needed their help and we apreciate that they were ALWAYS there for us. Rooms were great! very comfortable and clear. Hotel marconi is very close to the central transport station so the location was really convenient for us. Most of all, breakfast was very good with a big variety !! we'll come back soon .. :D

I haven't had a chance to experience any other hotels within Rome to provide an accurate comparison, all i can do is compare it to other hotels i have stayed in around the world.

With the exception of the location (literally 1 minute away from Rome Termini station), there is not much going for this hotel, room was sub-standard, breakfast pretty bad and quality overall was poor. The service at the front desk was great but that was about it.

Again please note, i cannot compare this to other hotels in Rome.
