Reviewed 15 September 2012

The hotel is only few minutes away from Termini station that give additional value to the stay, but in the area there is a lot of other hotels to choose .... city center and tourist attraction is very easy to reach from that area due to approximate to the central train station
The room was clean and very average I book the hotel through my airline website for a stay for only 2 nights during my stop over in Rome and I choose based on the option that there is WI- FI in each room and it's closed to Central station
Reception is on the fist floor with elevator that can be access only after taking your suitcase up by stairs. The rooms are on upper floors and last floor with elevator is 5th since I was on 6th floor there is one more floor to take your bag up by stairs ... so when you are booking if you are boking directly my advice is to ask for floor with elevator. otherwise is good if you would like to do some excersise.
The WI-FI connection was not available in my room 606 but option to connect on internet was only available from lobby area.

Room Tip: No wi-fi connection in all rooms i was staying in room 606 and there was no wi-fi connection at leas...

Hotel Milo was our first hotel stay in Rome and it left a lot be desired. Rooms were strictly ok and on the drab side, service of the some of the staff was off putting. On the upside breakfast is good and the train station is nearby ,about five minutes walk. The Colloseum too is about a ten minute walk away. Nothing worth recomending about the location... you do have a few good cafes around the hotel. The hotel does have a cramped feel about it. Our tip in rome could have been better in a different hotel.

Room Tip: Avoid taking the rooms overlooking the street ..the traffic can be alittle noisy.

I've stayed here before and they are very clean but this is the second time they don't honor my reservation, I wan't angry the first time because they said they might not have space but this time I made the reservation well over two weeks and they said they had the space and when I arrived in Rome after a long day of travel they looked at me confused and were talking about me coming in the next day to talk to the owner. Then they sent me to a hotel that would supposedly honor the price they were charging and didn't even know exactly where the hotel was(not far away and the price of course was not honored).Needless to say I was angry about the fact that they made the reservation on the phone but didn't honor it.

Room Tip: I don't know what you can do to make sure that they really have reserved your room for you.

The Hotel Milo is located 10 minutes from the main bus, train and metro station, Termini. Upon your arrival into Rome, you can take a bus for 4 EUR to the Termini and walk to your hotel. Do you homework and know what streets to take before you get to Rome or you can get lost. The Termini is full of pick-pockets, beggars and swindlers - sounds like any big city to me! Be prepared by using one of those geeky travel purses that go around your neck and tuck in your shirt to hold your money and passports (no wallets or purses). Do not take a cab ride or tour from anyone at the terminal. Know where you want to go before you arrive and make those arrangements ahead of time. And I can't say this enough, only bring what you can carry in a roll-a-board. Nothing is sadder than seeing people struggle with huge suitcases in the terminal. It will wear you out and make you a target for thieves. Take the bare minium you need and rinse our your clothes (the hotel shampoo works great, squeeze out excess water, lay the garment flat in a towel and roll it up a few times so the towel absorbs the water and hang it up - dry by the next day). Every may attraction in Rome you want to see can be access through the metro at 1.50 EUR, so it is a good deal, but again, know where you are going and use the map and the resources at the hotel.

Rome is a walking city with lots of stairs made of cobbled roads. The roads have stood the test of time, so they are hard on your feet. If you have problems walking or standing for several hours, you may want to reconsider this trip or know you'll have to pay big Euros (and it will take longer) to get where you want to go. If you can walk, then you'll drop about 10 pounds (even eating pasta and pizza). Take several differnt flat/tennis shoes and bring Band-Aid's Advanced Healing Blister bandages (you'll thank me for this). They are thick and will last through at least 4 days of wear and showering. I know the Italian women look all chip in heels, but they buy shoes in Rome (and you should too) where they are made for this type of walking, unlike American shoes. It will also be humid in the Spring and Summer, so grease those chubby thighs (and any other body parts that will be touching) with a product like Glide.

Reward yourself for all the walking and climbing you do with wonderful meals! They were reasonablied priced at the restaurants around the hotel too. The Milo serves breakfast, but it is so-so. You can get a cappucinno and fresh croissants in the morning downstairs. If you plan to spend the day at one of the sites, pick up a sandwich on your way as it will be cheaper near the hotel (~2 EUR) than at the Colosseum or Vatican. Pack a collapseable water bottle. It is great for the airport so it is empty when you go through security and can be filled after you pass security, but you'll also need it as you see the sites. Filling from the tap water in your room is fine and you'll also find they have open spiggots with water, kind of like a well. Walking through the Vatican and other sites, there is no water fountain. When you eat out, there is an option and takeaway and to sit, the same item will be twice as much if you sit and are served versuses taking it and eating at a park.

I would recommend booking guides for the major sites, so you can hear the history and see everything. The best time to see things is the afternoon. The mornings are extremely crowded. We had a tour for the Vatican, but it was extremely crowded and you really don't get a chance to appreciate the great art work, because they are moving you along like cattle. Again, it is stuffy and if you have troubles with standing, walking and climbing, this will be a challenge. If you are Catholic, check with your local parish/bishop who might be able to score you a better tour. Same with the Coloseum, go in the afternoon, know you'll be walking, standing climbing, bring water and take food. See the Spanish Steps and then walk down the street for some really highend shopping! Maybe I'm a 'metro jethro', but the best shopping I found was at the Termini. They have a mall in the metro terminal with places to eat, trending dress shops and lots and lots of shoes! If you walk down the different streets you'll find some great deals and unusual items of good quality and not the cheap tourist stuff.

That's it for my 'pearls of wisdom'! I hope this helps you enjoy Rome better.

Room Tip: The front desk staff is extremely nice and helpful. If you have questions, consult them. They gave g...

If flying into Rome to start a vaca this is a great place to stay, in the middle of everything you'll want to visit. After flying overnight we dropped our bags off saw the sites then crashed, room was very clean, nothing fancy, reminded me of college dorm room. Would recommend for 1-2 nights

Hotel Milo really surpassed our expectations. After reading some other reviews I was slightly concerned that I may have made a mistake booking this place - I couldn't have been more wrong. It was extremely easy to find from Termini and in an excellent location for walking to all the major tourist attractions.
The staff, especially those on reception were very helpful, and more than happy to advise on where to go and how to get there etc, always with a friendly Bonjourno or Ciao!
The room was large with a compact bathroom, and cleaned daily with towels also changed daily. Our room had quaint shutters which opened up to view the bustling street below, although noise was kept to a minimum by the double glazing (apart from the singing Scottish rugby fans!).
Breakfast was really good, OK it was basic cereals, pastries, cheese and meat with proper orange juice and coffee - your normal continental breakfast then. It was plentiful and certainly enough to start your day off well.
The lift was small - big enough for two plus luggage, but the stairs weren't a problem. We realised on the last day that there was a lovely terrace where you could eat breakfast - will definitely remember next time!
So to sum up, this is a fantastic value hotel in a really central location and I honestly don't think you could get much better - it is very highly recommended. I will definitely retrurn to this amazing and beautiful city and I will book in at the Milo!

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 524 on the fifth floor - so very peaceful with quaint shutters! Don't forget t...
