“Orrible”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 November 2013

Last month I spent my honeymoon there with my hausband because he made me a surprise.
We spent a few days in this ugly and unconfortable hotel and I wish I could have another honeymoon since that was so orrible.We have felt so miserable and unhappy in a such small room (not clean) without a window.
We had problem from the beginning just to find it and once we did we felt like:what is this??
It looks like one of those we find on the highway for 30 $$$$.
The room was little, no window, no service, and problems with the bathroom.
We told the receptionist who did not even care much about us.
This was our honey moon.
We did not tell them cuz I don't think there is a need just to get a normal service.
But this place is not normal.........
Even speaking in english w the receptionist was a problem.
No hair drier and no breakfast.
The night. We could not even sleep well cuz of too much noise from the road.
This miserable hotel is located on the third floor of an old building in the centre of Rome so that you can hear all the noises, also from the other rooms.
The next day we found the towels in the bathroom wich were dirty.
I advice everybody not to go there to spend vacations.

Room Tip: Pich up another hotel

Although we wanted to stay close to the attractions in Rome, we also were on a fixed low budget. I discovered this hotel and originally discounted it. I was considering staying in hotels close to the subway so we could travel in to Rome each day then I reconsidered and booked Hotel Montecitorio. When we arrived it was night time and we were tired. The entrance way is a large indoor courtyard and there was a small sign indicating the reception was on the third floor. We got in a very small elevator and when we arrived on the third floor we were sent back down to the ground level and directed to take an even smaller elevator (only fits on person and one suitcase at a time). This elevator is at the back of the courtyard and to the right, tucked away out of sight. We finally found reception and a very nice staff member who signed us in. He then told us we had to go back to the main floor and take the other elevator to our room. At this point I objected but he assured us we would have a lovely room. We complied and were pleased when finally we found our room. It was very small but had everything we needed including a small balcony! And the best part of it was that it was right in the heart of Rome. We were able to walk to the Coliseum, Trevi Fountain, Panthenon, Spanish Steps and more. We had some problems with the wifi the first night but got it sorted out in the morning. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful although we did not see much of them because of our separate location. If you want to be in central Rome, close to the attractions and great restaurants, and are on a tight budget, consider this hotel.

Room Tip: Check if you'll be in the main 3rd floor location or in the 5th floor annex. I don't know ho...

This hotel is in a very convenient location in Rome, close to lots of sites and walking distance to the metro. Unfortunately the advertising was misleading when it came to free wifi everywhere in the hotel, however we had to stand in the hallway or lobby to access that wifi. There is lift between floors, so you will have to lug your suitcases up and down flights of stairs. Our room had no window which made it very dark and the bed was hard. We asked the receptionist if we could borrow a pen to sign something and they said no which was not very nice, we had to run out at 11pm to go buy a pen. Pick a different hotel!

We stayed here 4 nights this week. Rome is a tricky city, and you are guaranteed to be exhausted by the time you get back to the hotel in the evening. Our bed was so terribly uncomfortable we spent the days completely exhausted with achey backs. We are young and great at sleeping. We can sleep anywhere! This hotel really made it difficult for us to enjoy the city. Our first evening it was pouring rain, and when we buzzed the hotel from the front door, they wouldn't let us in! I was so frustrated with this. The man working the door at that time was so rude.

We really enjoyed this Hotel. Small-yes. Hard to Find-yes. But Close to everything and the people at the desk were very helpful! It was clean and quiet and just what we needed.

Close to great restaurants, minutes from the Trevi Fountain and other attractions.

This hotel was first of all hard to find - there's a buzzer from the street and they let you into a compound with different offices/hotels in it
Honestly , it was just average but the location is great and we didn't want to spend more than $130-150 cad on a hotel per night - it was walking distance to most attractions and restaurant -termini station was about 10
Min walk and the only time we took the subway was to go to the coliseum and and Vatican City...

I have stayed several times at Hotel Montecitorio. The rooms are small but the location is central to all the main attractions of Rome. They offered a great rate so it was difficult to turn down since you spend most time out of the hotel. The hotel does not have a sign outside, it is within a residential building. They have an elevator and then you have some more steps to get to reception and your room. They do not offer breakfast. The room is clean, but our bath towels were not changed on this trip. I was given fresh towels when I was asked. The staff is very friendly and helpful. This was very good value in a great location.
