Welcome Piram Hotel
Ranked #352 of 1,271 Hotels in Rome
Reviewed 18 April 2014

My wife and I stayed here for7 days last week and the day we booked in we met a very nice lady receptionist who give us our room key and welcomed us to the hotel the first three days went well the room was ok and the location was good for the train station then on the fourth morning the wife went into the shower and had a bad fall in which she fractured her spine in two places(No anti slip mat and no grab rails fitted) and then spent 7 days in an Italian hospital before we where both flown home in an air ambulance to England now the really annoying thing about all this is that nobody from the hotel bothered to stop me each day as I left for the hospital or even when I returned to ask me how my wife was until the day I left when I bumped into the same lady receptionist upstairs on the same floor as my room and I explained her condition. So if you want to feel like a valued customer do not book into The Welcome Piram Hotel.

Positive:
The breakfast was good and tasty, many things to choose from, although it's not special. The juice isn't fresh and the fruit salad neither, this is something a 4 star hotel should provide.
The overall infrastructure is nice and clean. There were two elevators, one very authentic old one which we loved.
Our room was spacious and our bathroom big, maybe we were lucky, because we didn't book a suite or anything. But again the room was clean and comfortable, the shower worked well and we were pleased.

Negative:
We went here during easter break with quite warm weather and yet the roof terrace was closed until the 1st of May!! This was a big disappointment. They should have opened it already, because many guests were expecting to be able to enjoy this.
The beds are hard and short. Im quite a tall women, so this wasn't very good for my sleep. I didn't sleep very good, but i didn't have any back aches, so thats a positive point. The blankets were very annoying though.
The Wifi is only free when you are sitting in the entrance hall. Today this should be free in the entire hotel. Also, the connection was really slow, so don't count on using much internet during your stay.
Also, one last tip: don't underestimate the distance from Termini station to the historic centre, its quite a long walk of at least half an hour.

Fantastic hotell with a really romantic room. Excellent service and the room was spotless clean. Location great, near the Termini station and only a few minutes walks from the center.
There's lots of nice cafe's near the hotell. Note that its cheaper not to include breakfast. It only cost ~4 EUR in the café to have cappuccino e cornetto for two persons. That if you stand and don't sitt down. For service you have to pay som extra.

We have just recently returned from a holiday in Rome. Rome was stunning and really everything I expected it to be. The hotel on the other hand was not. I travel quiet a lot and never book a hotel that is less than 4 stars. This Hotel advertises itself as a 4 star hotel, but in reality barely makes it a 3 star. If that, I would say a 2 star would be more fitting for it. When we arrived at the hotel it was pretty late. We were tired and very warm from walking to the hotel. As we received our hotel room card we made our way to the room. The first thing that struck me was, that when we walked through the hallway, there were no windows what so ever. They hung some kind of tacky tapestry on the wall to make it seem like there was a window there. As we opened up our room door, my face fell. The room was barely furnished and the bathroom was a disgrace. It had mould in all the cracks on the tiles (floor and walls). The toilet when flushed wouldn't stop running. But the icing on the cake was when I opened the window to let in some fresh air (the room temperature at the time was 26c) all I got was a waft of very warm air and a loud buzzing kind of sound. As I looked down I could not believe it. I was actually looking at a very dirty court yard with a generator in it. As I looked up, I saw another window, with its occupants looking at me in bemusement as I was looking utterly shocked at the state of the place. I had also asked the hotel for some extra pillows, as the ones we had were very thin and only one was supplied for each person. I was promptly told no, there were no other Pillows I could have as the hotel was apparently full. The next morning we complained about the room, and lucky enough were moved to another room. It was only a little better, but better non the less then the one we had to begin with. Would I go back to Rome...defiantly!! Would I used the same hotel...NEVER.....I have learnt to pay for the extra star, ie 5 stars to have a decent hotel and a decent view. If you can avoid room 154!!!

There are many things wrong with this hotel. 1. There is no air conditioning in spite of this being promised when we booked on the Internet. As I lie in my bed writing this after a long day of touristing I can see the wire hanging out of the wall. We were very hot on the first night here and when we asked the man behind reception desk about air conditioning we were told to open the window. We didn't want to do this because if we did we were treated to a strange banging noise, police sirens, bins being emptied, bottle banks being filled and Italians arguing. This was odd because both the bedroom and the bathroom window opened onto grotty rubbish filled alleyways. When I pointed this out to the receptionist it was met with a shrug. 2. Contrary to what we were promised the roof terrace was not open. So obviously neither was the rooftop spa. 3. Wi-Fi. I know we are somewhat spoilt in England with superfast broadband and so on, but here every five minutes you have to re-log on to their Wi-Fi and when you do it's painfully slow. 4. Watch out for the creepy Troll like guy in the breakfast room. I suppose he is the catering manager. He is very friendly with women. And very very friendly with single women. Once I nearly intervened when I watched an American woman giving him please leave me alone signals which he didn't pick up on. I have yet to see him talk to a male guest and I have breakfasted here three days now. 5. This room (362) has a whirlpool bath. That's good right? Nope. It didn't work and when I ran a bath for the wife brown gunge floated out of the redundant pipes.
Ok, now for the positives. Breakfast is plentiful and a wide enough choice if not of particularly high quality. The location is great for traveling. The main bus terminus is about 100 metres away making bus travel around the city very easy. Some of the staff are charming but are probably powerless to help with decisions like air con. The room is clean and spacious and is well made up each day. This is a long way from a 4 star, I would say its a 1 star that needs some serious sorting out.

Stayed here for 4 nights at the end of March 2014- and it is nothing like it was advertised. Located near the station, it provides easy access to public transport and tour buses. My third time in Rome, I booked based on reviews on other sites and for location. I wish I had booked elsewhere.

The hotel website promotes itself as 4* and it definitely wasn't. The roof terrace, which was part of the reason for booking was closed throughout the stay, and wasn't due to open for at least a couple more weeks, until "renovation works" had been completed. The room itself was large, spacious and clean, but these were the only plus points. The beds were rock hard, and only 2ft6 wide. Only one very flat pillow was provided, and this made for very little sleep. Asked for a second pillow only to be told the first two nights they didn't have any!

The bathroom was tiny - there was only about a foot between the front the the toilet and the wall, and couldn't bend in the shower.

There are two lifts - however, due to people not closing the door on the older one, there was often a long wait. Not ideal when you're on the third floor...

Breakfast was adequate, and plenty of choice. The staff were reasonably friendly however do not take the hotel taxi service. One morning, having pre-booked a tour at the Vatican museums, I asked the guy on reception to call a taxi for us, he wouldn't as their "driver" was already there. He quoted us 40E. I declined knowing this to be well over priced - we got one from the station for 11E.

Overall, this isn't the worst place I have stayed, but definitely far from the best - and is nowhere near the 4* establishment it makes itself out to be.

Stayed 2 nights. Reception staff except for the Indian guy & Raul not courteous & disinterested in your comfort & needs.

No tea/coffee making facilities in the room - even two star properties have this now. Atleast put a complimentary tea/coffee station in the reception area !

Breakfast starts at 7.30 am which is too late if you have to start early.

Logging in to the wifi internet complicated & the speed slow. Aircon not working in the room.

Only plus is the proximity to Termini Station.

Will look for alternative accommodation for my next visit.
