“A very obvious destination for schools”
Reviewed 18 October 2010

I, like many others, stayed here on a school trip.

Although the room was decent enough, I found it too small for three people. It was obviously a two person room, with a cot added in at the last minute.

The breakfast had little varirty, and while tasty and edible, became rather tedious for a five day trip.

The hotels two shining glories were it's proximity to Termini (one of Rome's best shopping arcades) and the staff, who were friendly and spoke good english.

The only other issue I would raise is that while most of our party were allocated rooms on the ground floor, myself and my two room mates were alone on the floor above. However, this was minor inconveinience and did not detract too much of the enjoyment of our stay.

Overall, an average hotel but one of the better ones I have stayed in with my school, and average value for money.

Stayed for a long weekend on a school trip and for a girl who is used to 4-5stars, the hotel really isn't too bad.

not of caution, the hotel is often full of school kids on trips wanting a good time, so not the best place if your wanting a full nights sleep.

The hotel is really close to a bus station/metro/ shopping centre (termini) which it great for getting about and also the cafe at the entrance is very good for meals.

The rooms...
The rooms are clean some are larger than others, some of the light fittings are dodgy and check the bed slats before you leave so that you get your deposit back! NO bed bugs. Although there are very thin sheets, so if you get cold easily you might want to pack a blanket.
The bathrooms clean, the showers hot and powerful, so really you can't complain.

The breakfast is uninspiring! no fruit or youghurt, some cereal i'd never see before, nutella, ham and cheese for breadrolls (which are very hard...so if you have braces you might want to consider taking cereal bars or buying bread in the supermarket in the ((termin)) instead) and if you don't like long life milk i suggest you buy your own.

all in all a great hotel if your only there to "sleep" and is a perfect place for school trips

Stayed here on a school trip for the weekend. It is very, basic, no kettle in the room and the mini fridge is hot. Many of the bathroom sewage systems are poor so everytime the toliet is flushed it makes a terrible smell. There were no bed bugs as stated in some of the other reviews but the bed sheet sare like curtains! The staff are friendly and the general cleanleness is fine. The location is really good, right by the main train station. The breakfast is fine but the milk and water is warm so stick to the juices. All in all, its fine for a weekend away sightseeing if you are not planning to stay in the hotel much and want to be near to the amenities.

The Lazio is really, really close to the main train station (Termini), which is very convenient - the staff were ok, especially if you smile and are friendly when talking to them, and the entrance looked ok. They have a little roofed courtyard out front, where you can sit and chill in the evenings, and there are little tobacconist's / newsagent's nearby.

However, the hotel itself... well, I know it's cheap, but it was really not a great experience. The rooms are extremely cramped - don't even THINK about sharing a room with a friend, they will cram in 3 single beds into a room big enough for one bed, to the point where the 3 beds are actually TOUCHING. The rooms smelled a bit funky as well, damp and just 'off'.

The worst thing was waking up the next morning and finding big red bites all over me - yes, they have BED BUGS! Gross! The hotel didn't seem to care though - they just told me to contact my tour operator... and what were they supposed to do??

The other MAJOR problem was that large groups kids going on school trips to Rome seem to be ALL staying at the Lazio... and by kids, I mean teenagers. Of course, being teenagers, they all decided to get hammered and ran around the hotel screaming and shouting, knocking on each other's doors, puking and carrying on pretty much all night. I was so annoyed. And again, the staff by the front desk did not seem to care at all. I'm so annoyed that my friends and I didn't go elsewhere - and that we didn't check this site out before booking the hotel.

The breakfast did surprise me though, it was quite ok. Nothing spectacular, but really expected it to be as bad as the rest of the hotel. They had the regular continental breakfast, which is fine - cereals, bread rolls, coffee etc. in a fairly average, cleanish dining room.

So to sum up - unless you're 16 and looking for a fabulously loud drunken adventure on alco pops, I'd strongly advise you to go elsewhere.

  • Liked — It was close to the train station
  • Disliked — The bed bugs, the horrible rooms, and the annoying drunken teenagers keeping us all awake all night

I booked a package which included 4 nights at this hotel, which I chose because of the close proximity to the railway station. Imagine my absolute horror when after booking I found the reviews for this Hotel Lazio on this site! We decided not to cancel and went along with a sense of humour and expecting the worst. We were pleasantly surprised - the staff were subdued, but extremely helpful when we needed them to be. The breakfast was not brilliant, but on a par with "continental breakfasts" I have experienced at supposedly better hotels. We also initially thought that the walls in our room looked a little "tired" and in need of a quick end-of-season paint, however in broad daylight we discovered that the paintwork was not in need of a refresh, but had been given an almost too subtle rag-roll pattern! Our mistake. The room we stayed in was actually spotless, with all towels changed daily and bedlinen every second day. It was well-equipped, with the exception of the mini-bar, which was really an empty fridge. However, this suited us very well, as we had plenty of space to chill our bottles of water. We found the hotel to be peaceful at night - perhaps we missed maurauding school children and bed bugs season- who knows? And yes, as promised the hotel really was a 2 minute walk (if that) from Termini - which meant that travel throughout our stay was easy. I fully believe you get what you pay for; this hotel is inexpensive and is perfect if you intend to be out-and-about site-seeing. If you are looking for a different type of break, relaxing in luxurious spacious surroundings, you should probably look at a different type of hotel. We found that this hotel delivered exactly what it promised, so don't be put off by the other reviews -try it yourself first!

Bugs in the beds . . . need I say more? I will though. Rude staff. Horrible smells from the AC when it did work. No TV.

We were there as a part of a soccer tour but left and spent additional money to stay at the Hotel Stromboli around the corner.

Lazio is located well, but there are many other choices in the same area.
