“Brilliant hotel in the middle of everywhere.”
Reviewed 3 August 2013 via mobile

We were a little worried as the hotel was very cheap compared to location but all for nothing. The service was great, the rooms clean and decent. I would definitely come back here. And breakfast and wifi included.

I stayed at this hotel at the end of June 2013 and was pleasantly surprised.

The good:

1) 5 minute walk to the Colosseum.

2) The mattresses were comfortable, even the added third bed.

3) Staff spoke English and was helpful and courteous.

4) Room was clean.

5) Air conditioning worked very well, could be inside and wouldn't even know that it was 100F outside.

6) Continental breakfast was decent but the room you ate it in was more like a walk in closet.

The bad:

Really not much bad to say about the hotel except that: we were told that there was a parking garage near by and that the fee was 25 Euros per night. In actuality the garage was a few streets away and was so small that the cars were packed in like sardines - I'm not sure how the guy got in and out to park the cars (he must have crawled in and out of the window) and the actual cost was 35 Euros per 24 hours. 35 Euros! That's more than the cost of the stay per person at the hotel.

Internet was available and I got 5 days worth at an additional charge of 7 Euros (for all 5 days).

Room Tip: Rooms that face the busy street are better as the rear rooms face an alley and the windows are solid...

If I had been staying for more than a night, I probably would have pushed for a larger room. The room was more than adequate, and the location is fantastic. The Wi-Fi was free, although the literature in the room indicated that the front desk would tell me the pricing - I just went downstairs and the clerk hooked me up.

It was very hot in Rome that night, and the air conditioner did a (barely) adequate job of cooling the room.

The included breakfast was in line with the price.

I would stay here again.

Rome was our 2nd city out of 4 during our honeymoon extravaganza. The first two nights we got put in the smallest and most uncomfortable room in the hotel. The door hardly opened without hitting the bed and because the door was steel you could only get wifi if you sat in the hallway with your door open.

After two nights of this cramped room we begged for them to switch us, and they did without hesitation. We then got placed in a nice room with plenty of space and proper working Internet access! Be sure to ask for a different room if you get placed in the corner cramped closet. The staff will gladly switch you!

Very close to the colosseum and multiple restaurants/shops.

4 of us needed 2 rooms for 1 night in Rome before flying home. Solis was very affordable, in a great location just a stone's throw from the Colosseum, rooms good size and staff very helpful. Before we arrived they arraigned car service for us to get to airport and made us a dinner reservation at a nearby restaurant I wanted to go to that didnt have a web site. Was even able to drive straight to it coming from the south without getting lost. We easily walked to the Colosseum, then the Jewish Ghetto and then Campo di Fiore. (though we did cab it back). Can easily walk to Trevi fountain and Spanish Steps too.If arriving at main train station is just off metro stop. Only negative is very small breakfast room. People were waiting for a table though frankly unless grabbing a bite before catching a plane (as we were) better to eat out. Is an excellent deli/pizzeria just to the left as you go out. Also a very locals heavy restaurant (La Cicala e la Formica) is just around the corner

This hotel was satisfying with the amazing location, literally the Colosseum is just a short walk away and the Trevi Fountain about 10-15 mins away and the Spanish Steps a bit further than that but the room was a bit disappointing. It was quite cramped (with the 4 of us) and dark so not really nice to sit in but fortunately you don't spend much time in it. Also due to the proximity of the hotel to the Colosseum it was easy to just pop back to the hotel for either a rest or pick something up or get some water etc.
The staff were very nice and one even recommended us a good pizza place!
However the breakfast was quite limited and the breakfast room was quite small (but could be expected for a small hotel)
All in all it did the job with the fantastic location!

We only needed an overnight stay in Rome, as my friends and I had an early morning flight out.

1. Surprised us all with how easy it was to find. The Garmin said we would be there in 15 minutes when we got off the Autostrada, and we were. Basically drove right to it!

2. Close enough to the terminal for easy return of the car. I wish I could say that about the signage to make the return of the car easy- but there wasn't any!

3. We were able to do a quick tour and see most of the highlights- with a plan to return another day for a longer stay!

Just a tip- we understood that the key card had to be in the slot for the lights to run- wish we had figured out sooner that that included the AC unit. It was a bit warm and stuffy in the room until about 4AM when the AC finally caught up to the heat.

Great gelato spot about 3 doors up the street too!
