This hotel is located in a good position but I am afraid that our experience was disappointing.

The receptionist on our arrival was exceedingly helpful and she gave us some very good information which helped us organised our time in Rome.

On arrival in our room, there was only one cup, one plastic cup in the bathroom and one pair of complimentary slippers......nothing dramatic here but mildly irritating in a 4 star hotel. An extra cup was brought following our request.

Breakfast on our first morning- the toaster in the dining room was not working
Breakfast on our second morning- the toaster, the hot plate and the egg boiler were not working
The toaster was repaired by day three but the other items never worked. Cold scrambled eggs, cold bacon and cold sausage are not particularly appetising. There was a fair range of other breakfast foods available which was helpful but after the first day only natural yoghurt was served. Our final morning in the breakfast room was completely over-shadowed by a full blown shouting argument going on in the kitchen which included the door between the kitchen and the dining room being slammed shut.

On our second day we returned to our hotel to discover that they had removed the towels but had not replaced them. Another trip to reception and a set of towels was then brought to the room but the poor staff member was embarrassed when he realised that there were two of us in the room and he had only brought towels for one. He returned shortly afterwards with another set.

On arrival we were assured that there was free internet but the signal to the room was so poor that it never worked unless you were down in the reception and using the laptop that they supply in one corner.

The room and en-suite bedroom were kept clean and was pleasantly decorated. The room was a little small for a double but with only one hard backed chair in it, you had to sit on the bed to watch the tv. Tea and coffee were available in the room with a kettle but no milk was provided, however, the room had a minibar/fridge in it which proved useful and the nearness of a local supermarket meant it was easy to buy milk and more tea and coffee supplies. The bed was very comfortable and the room had air conditioning which was not needed in early April but I am sure would be required in the summer months.

Overall, I would say that this hotel is really more of a 3 star than a 4 star. We managed fine and had a great time in Rome.

Have just returned from a 3 night city break at the Hotel Milton. Really please I booked this Hotel, it is about a 15 minute walk to the Colosseum (however there is a metro stop right outside the Hotel, if you don't want to do a lot of walking). If you get stuck using the automotive machines in the metro, there is a tobacconists right next to the hotel that will sell you tickets (I would suggest getting your tickets from here it is much easier). The Hotel is clean, lovely staff, really good breakfast (lots of choice) and we felt safe throughout our stay. Our rooms were adequate (daily cleaned with fresh bedding and towels), it is noisy but on a main road so complaints about noise are unjustified (we had no problems with the showers, lots of hot water, so don't worry about other reviews), very easy to use room safes in the wardrobes. There is a fridge in the room which is good (we had no tea/coffee making facilities, but when I asked for a coffee on an evening I wasn't charged, so no complaints here). TV in room but no English channels, but free Wi-Fi is good and was able to watch TV on mobile phone (reception was very good). If you are a smoker there is an out-door terrace which is always open (you can enjoy a drink and a cigarette outside no problems). Other tips, don't go on a horse drawn carriage trip from the Colosseum, we were charged £200 euros for a 40 minute trip (I am still kicking myself) go on a bus sight seeing trip instead to orientate yourself to the city. If you are in Rome on Wednesday the Pope does a service in St Peters Square (if he is in the country) you can go to the Vatican and get free tickets for this (this was the highlight of our trip - thank you to the American couple from Chicago who gave us their tickets). We booked a couple of tours with Dark Rome Tours (their are on Trip Advisor) they were very good and I would recommend them - easy pick up points and lovely knowledgeable tour guides. Shopping tips go to the Trevi Fountain lots of good tourist shops round the area, good food go to Piazza Navona some really reasonably priced restaurants. All in all we are very please with our Rome experience, I am sure you will be too, we will be going back, hopefully.

Room Tip: The noise is not that bad so don't worry about it, it is a busy city so just accept this and rel...

On a 3 day visit to Rome we stayed at the Hotel Milton which is classified as 4 star. Whilst the hotel is comfortable and clean we certainly do not think it warrants a 4 star rating. For example tea making facilities are available in the room but no milk is provided which we found very strange. In addition toiletries were not replaced every day unless you asked for them which should be a given.
However on the plus side the hotel has upgraded the double glazing which has cut down the noise from the busy road the hotel is based on and in fact is not noticeable. The buffet breakfast is good and was not overcrowded .
Overall I think the hotel should be classified as a 3 star which is a fairer star rating.

This is a typical Italian 4* hotel in a traditional building. Location is good, but the rooms are very noisy to to the two street car lines intersecting. It makes the whole building vibrate and it goes one from early in the morning to late at night. The rooms are getting new windows so this should help with insulation, but not vibration. Entrance lobby not very attractive and floors look scratched and dirty. Never understand why some interior decorators/architects can't use material that actually is able handle the heavy traffic/usage of hotels. Room size (standard double) adequate, but noting fancy and it was difficult to regulate water temperature in the shower. It also had one of these short glass covers that reach about half-way along the bath, so water still gets out on the floor. Breakfast OK, but not great. If you want real coffee you have to ask for it as the machine only serves that awful instant brew.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the top floor and if you are a light sleeper facing the courtyard. Not a good view...

I spent two nights at this hotel a week ago and I must say that its good value. The hotel is clean and the staff very helpful. Although our room on the first floor seemed small it was more than adequate. The staff are happy to help you with any questions and best places to visit during your visit.

I spent most of my time away from the hotel as there is plenty to see in Rome. The breakfast is good. You can choose continental style croissants or scrambled eggs and sausages. We always used to take some fruit for a mid morning snack. The breakfast is buffet style and my only complaint is that it does take a while to replinish what gets taken so you do have to take what's on offer rather than wait.

Rome is a wonderful city. Book tickets online for the Colleseum in advance. It costs 12euros at the door but there can be a wait for upto 2hrs.

Vatican is a very nice place to visit. We and my wife managed to do both Vatican and Colleseum in the same day without any trouble. Try and get to the colleseum which is a 20 min slow walk from the hotel for about 1030hrs as the queues are not that much.

When you arrive at the vatican, try and get there for 11-12 and IGNORE all the agents trying to offer you a queue jump. Vatican costs 16 euros and is well worth it. You have to go around to the other side of the city via the exterior to see St Peters Sq and Basillica but still well worth it. The Sistine Chapel is inside the museums. Try and get a map as the Italians are quite rude and arrogant when it comes to giving a person with an English accent some directions.

The station is across the road (Manzone) you can buy a daily ticket for 6 euros or a 2 day or even three day one. We visited the colleseum on foot and the station for that is on a seperate line. All the other attractions, Trevi, Spanish Steps and Vatican are accessible from Mazone.

We got the Leonardo Express from the airport for 14 euros, it takes about 34 mins. Or you can get a bus for about 5euros.

Just returned from a 3 night stay in Rome. We chose this hotel on the basis of the location which is a 10-15 minute walk from the Colosseum. The room size is fine as was the bathroom although the water temperature of the shower keeps you guessing a little. Unfortunately it was very difficult to regulate the room temperature and it was warm in the room at night, and quite noisy outside if you open the window. In addition the tea cups weren't washed for the duration of our stay and tea and coffee used wasn't replaced. Having said that though the location is pretty good and the buffet breakfast selection is excellent! The hotel staff we had dealings with were very helpful and gave good advice. Please note that taxis are pretty expensive. Buses go regularly from the airport to the Train Termini for just 4-5 Euros per person, and from the Termini it costs 1.50 Euros per person to go 2 stops on the metro to the station which is opposite the hotel! Not a 4 star hotel but not bad for a weekend city break!

Room Tip: Try not to have a room at the front overlooking the main road as it is quite noisy!
