Reviewed 17 August 2014

Rome is generally a place one goes either for business or for sightseeing. Either way, a Holiday Inn Express fits the bill nicely. The problem with Rome is that the coverage offered by the Metro is minimal, so finding a nice, affordable hotel within 10 minutes walk of a Metro station is a real challenge. The good news is that it is well satisfied by this hotel.

Check-in was a joy, the pleasant receptionist spoke good English, was well informed about the City and made us feel immediately welcome. Our rooms were a reasonable size, certainly adequate as a base for three nights from which to see the sights. The beds were comfortable (there is a choice of pillows), the rooms spotlessly clean, and the bathrooms well equipped with the usual sanitary ware, including a Bidet.

Regular guests of Holiday Inn Express know that there are usually no frills, such as tea/coffee-making facilities, in-room bar, trouser press, room service and suchlike. But there is here a decent bar (with a Happy Hour that includes food), and a good breakfast choice.

If you book your Taxi to the airport through Reception, it will save you €10 off the fare!

All in all, we found this hotel up to Holiday Inn's predictably high standard.

Dear Valued Guest,
let me first express my acknowledgments for you kind review upon your recent stay with us, it is for us reason of proud to carry on this way because the Guest’s satisfaction is our priority.

You are perfectly right asserting the Hotel is located in a very convenient position, with railway station "Rome Tuscolana" within 350 metres serving International Fiumicino Airport, subway stop "Pontelungo" within 750 meters and bus stop n. 85 just a stone throw away the hotel to quickly and easily reach downtown area.

Regarding the transportation from the Int.l Airport Fiumicino there is a very useful connection by the train, direction Orte Fara Sabina from the airport railway station to the Railway Rome Tuscolana with only € 8,00 per person.

But if you prefere to reserve our Limousine service from or to the Airport, the prise is fiexed at € 45,00 up to a party of 4 people per trip during the daily hours, just ask for that service at the Reception.

Looking forward to welcome you as preferred Guest next time you will travel to Rome, I wish you all the best.

Faithfully Yours.

Wife and I stayed here for 2 days during our tour of Italy. The accommodations are nice. The WiFi was good. The location of the hotel was somewhat hidden. The breakfast was nice. The parking was inconvenient as I have to get out of my car and insert my hotel key. I would definitely recommend.

Just arrived home from our vacation, also booked from Groupon- our last leg was at this hotel. Everything was great. It is just a short walk to the metro or other public transportation. We really enjoyed the great breakfast offered every morning to fuel up for a busy day of sightseeing. We also enjoyed a night cap and snack from the hotel's bar each evening to wind down after a busy day. The staff was great.

Great hotel, the area is ok but the hotel more than makes up for it. Very good service and an amazing breakfast. Rooms are very clean and modern. Location is very handy to the subway and easy to get to all the main sites. The courtyard is very nice in the evening to sit and relax with a drink.
Would definitely stay here again next time in Rome.

We booked this hotel through groupon. It was very nice and clean. The hotel is very modern and the breakfast was very nice! Only downside, Internet was not that fast. I had a lot of trouble getting things to load but was able to do the basics. Overall I would recommend this hotel, it'd clean, safe and close to everything (bus stop, restaurants etc)

We stayed for 3 nights from 11.07.2014 to 14.07.2014 and found that although the hotel is a bit far from main attractions of Rome, it is very close to both the Metro network as well as Trenitalia railways, making this a major plus point for the hotel. With respect to the stay, we were in a standard room and the hotel property and the rooms were well maintained and clean. The breakfast was very good in keeping with the usual IHG standards. The staff was friendly and helpful. Only suggestions we have that the room lacks a kettle for tea/ coffee and a small safe deposit box to keep valuables such as passports and money when we go out for site seeing.

I’m afraid you didn’t ask to the Reception for the coffee and tea facility, because you had discovered it is provided to the room only on request as well as the saftey box available at the Front Desk and it is totally free of charge.
Anyways these information are written on our IHG web-page.

Hoping to be able to welcome you as favorite Guest next time you will be in Rome, I remain with kind regards.

My husband and I booked a groupon vacation and this hotel was included in the package. It's not in the heart of Rome but was only about a 15-20 minute drive from everywhere we went. Very nice hotel for a Holiday Inn Express. Continental breakfast was included, nice outdoor area. Overall, the hotel was great and clean. The room was a nice size with a balcony. Staff was nice and helpful, we arrived late around 11pm and were checked in without a problem, we asked the front desk about tours for the next day and the next morning we were given receipts, they booked us for the tour and were all set to be picked up. Free wifi, bar in the lobby, helpful staff, made our stay here enjoyable!
