“Great location!”
Reviewed 12 May 2014

This hotel is conveniently located near the main train station (Termini) and it’s only a 15min walk from the Colosseum and the Forum Romanum. Near the hotel there are many places where you can eat not spending a lot of money, there is a supermarket open till late, many shops (at the Termini station). Our room was quite clean and nice, the bathroom could be cleaner, the breakfast was terrible, and the hotel definitely doesn’t deserve 4 stars, maybe 2 or 3. Overall, not so bad. I would come back because of the great location.

This hotel is conveniently located to the train station and around 15 to 20 minutes walk to the parthenon.
It is good value for money but it is a small hotel with very small serviceable rooms that are good for a night sleep.
The aircon is switched off during the day so a plus is that the room opened onto a quite area at the back of the hotel. But don't look down as it reminds you of a dump area for unwanted items.
Staff are courteous rather than friendly. No issues that I could not live with.

Reviewed 29 January 2014

The foyer gives a grand impression, which the rooms do not match up to, our room had most fixtures coming off even for plug sockets etc. and no way to work the heating or air con. The rooms walls were very thin, we could make out word for word conversation of the people next to us especially when they were arriving back at 3am. The room itself was very clean and the bed was comfy, so it is fine if you will be spending next to no time at all in the hotel. The wifi is incredibly poor and can only be accessed in the lobby and even then it is not the best. Not reliable especially if you are wanting to get in touch with home. The main benefit of this hotel is the location. It is right around the corner from Termini, the only station where both metro lines go from. We didn't use breakfast facilities at the hotel as there are plenty of small cafes in the vicinity to stop of in before you head out.

We stayed here for three days. All apart from location was pretty bad. Coffee for breakfast was pretty bad, there were youghurts but not nearly enough for everybody. Other food wasn't very good too.
There was no wifi in the rooms and in the lobby it was more time not working than working.
Fan in the bathroom was blowing dirty air in instead of sucking it out, so sometimes the bathroom stank. Air conditioning was only good for heating. Lots of things in the room way flimsy and almost falling apart (electricity power cabinet, flusher, hair dryer).
Rooms were very small and the window even smaller.
In the lobby and restaurant air temperature was set to 25 degrees and it was too hot everywhere.

We went to Rome in October 2013. The hotel has small and old rooms. The breakfast was average. The location is in Termini where all trains and metro goes. So transportation from that location is nice.

stayed at the Archimede on October 2nd for one night. room was fine but beds very hard. No shower curtain in bathroom thereby enabling water to splash everywhere, even into the room. On the plus side it was beside the Termini Station which suited us for ease of access to the airport on the following morning.

Room Tip: convenience for access to train station

I have never been in the worst hotel. It has 4* but I am not sure how did they get it!? The rooms are very dirty and dusty. My towels smelled bad from the first day, and I don't believe that they have changed them even once for a four days. The food is disgusting. The hotel is near the Termini but that part of the city is very dangerous, so if you are a woman is not recommendable to walk alone near the Termini alone at night. There was no wi fi in the rooms, only in the lobby but it has very poor signal. I was very disappointed what I get for that price, which is not small.

Room Tip: If you go there ask for a room that is not on the street side because you wont get any sleep from th...
