“Central to Ancient Rome”
Reviewed 14 December 2013 via mobile

Central location (5 minute walk to Colosseum, 2 minutes to Fori Imperiali). Staff were very friendly and helpful! Adequate breakfast ( bread, rolls, croissants, variety of breakfast cereals, ham, salami, cheese, coffee, tea & juices) Room was clean and adequate in size. We had a room facing the main road, Via Cavour, but was quiet enough at night. Via Cavour has quite a few restaurants for lunch/dinner and there is a very nice ice cream shop called Flor, less than a minute walk from the hotel. The only negative is that there is no coffee/tea making facilities in the rooms, but there is a bar fridge that can be used. Other than that, if you want a centrally located, budget hotel with wi-fi, just 15 minutes walk from the Termini then I would recommend Hotel Solis.

Stayed December 2013, travelled as a couple

we stayed at the hotel for 3 nights on a recent trip to Rome, we found the hotel clean, the staff very friendly and they spoke English which was a bonus, the breakfast was adequate, all major attractions were within walking distance, rooms were a decent size, our room was at the front of the hotel but still found it quiet even though the hotel is situated on a busy main road, all in all we would definitely recommend this hotel as a good base for your holiday at a great price.

Stayed in a family room sleeping 4 during recent visit to Rome with the family. In busy street near the Coliseum but room was nevertheless quiet. Room was big enough for the four of us, bathroom a little on the small side but adequate for our needs. Continental breakfast was included in our deal which was a bonus. If you're looking for a reasonable deal for a family in Central Rome which in our case was somewhere to lay our heads and grab a shower, you won't go wrong here. All major sights are walkable and very handy for the metro.

I have stayed at this hotel Three times both With collegues and friends. The staff is very pleasant, the rooms are good and the breakfast ok. But the best With this hotel is the location nearby to Colloseum and Forum. It is a very good startpoint for traveling around With buses, metro and just for walking around in the citycenter.

We booked direct with the Hotel and stayed for a full week. We found it to be a great location for walking around the City. It is very close to the Forum and Colusseum. The staff are very friendly and service levels were good. The room was good. Good size electronic safe in wardrobe but loose and not secured to a wall. The bathroom was satisfactory excepting for a broken shower bracket which did not cause any difficulty. The breakfast room only accommodates 16 persons but we only had a small delay one morning and found the cold continental breakfasts to be good. We would not hesitate to stay here again.

Room Tip: Pay a little extra for a 'Superior Room'.

I would recommend the Hotel Solis to any tourist wanting a good hotel near to the sights. This was a trip to celebrate my wife's birthday and the hotel staff could not do enough for us and thank you so much Diego for the upgrade, all the staff were very attentive and informative. The hotel is a good 3* standard rooms with air con & kept clean. Each room has european plug points (so take an adapter), a TV with in english - CNN / BBC world news / music channels. Solis provided a continental style breakfast ie.Cereal, juice, coffee ham, cheese, eggs, toast and selection of jam / honey etc there was a nice lady serving great coffee and although a small breakfast area there was a relaxing atmosphere. The Solis is a 15 min walk from the Roma termini and a 5 min walk to the Coliseum Metro station, tourist information centre & Vittorio Palace / museo. We are no spring chickens & we managed to walk to all the main sites incl. Coliseum, Forum, Circo Missimo, Trevi, Spanish steps - You will do enough walking so a good central location is essential !!! If we return to Rome we would definitely return to the Solis.

Room Tip: odd number rooms are away from the main road and have a small balcony
