Reviewed 30 March 2014

Stayed here 5 days, excellent base to travel around Rome. Roberto the manager was a perfect host, extremely helpful, and could not fault anything...it is fairly small but bedding and towels changed daily !! We only slept here and that is all you need... Once you know the address it is simple to find but it is just a set of large double doors with a brass plaque outside.
Would return in a heartbeat. Weather wasn't as kind as we would have liked but complimentary umbrellas a nice touch!
Thank you for helping make our trip to rome so memorable.

Room Tip: Perhaps ask for a courtyard view rather than Main Street but that wasn't too bad really

We stayed 4 nights in this beautiful boutique "Hotel Versailles" last October 2013.
We score this stay 10 out of 10.
Great service from the beautiful owners/operators Roberto & George, great value, comfortable beds, secure and very safe hotel on 1st floor, very clean & spacious room with a wonderful street view of the Roman city wall, step outside our secluded hotel entrance and upon our doorstep were a multitude of eateries with great hospitality - the Romans shone. We felt a real community of warmth and welcome. A short walk took us to a local bus stop which we used daily to bus us a short 10 minutes ride into the city centre. We would always eat breakfast and generally our evening meal locally near our hotel, as it was very relaxed with beautiful hospitable roman locals. We highly recommend and look so forward to returning soon ... xx

We stayed for 5 nights as we wanted to do as much as possible in Rome while we were there for the rugby, We took the Terravision bus from the airport to the Termini then the 92 bus which stops 200 metres from the hotel. Note there is not a large hotel sign outside so it's easy to walk straight past so keep an eye on the numbers, look for the small brass plaque and ring the bell. The hotel uses rooms inside the elegant building with.the desk on the 1st floor and is staffed most of the time, the room we had overlooked the front so we could see the old (Aurelian) wall across the street from the Porta Pia, it was clean and had plenty of room. The staff spoke very good English and were extremely helpful and friendly. There are plenty of restaurants & cafes in the area behind the hotel so eating out each night only involved a two minute walk tourists.We did a lot of walking whilst we were there, visiting the Villa Borghese was an easy 10-15 min walk, the Spanish steps, Trevi fountain, Colossium and Piazza Navona. At the time of writing we are looking at the bus route over to the rugby stadium as it looks the best option. We would definitely stay again!

This charming hotel is on the second floor of a beautiful building and the elevator was out of a 50's movie. I was in love! The main lady at the hotel didn't speak much English but she was so sweet and helpful! Niceness transcends language barriers! The hotel is located within walking distance to bus stops and a few restaurants. The room was pretty big and the bathroom was very nice and spacious. The hotel was pretty affordable and very nice! The receptionist called for a taxi to take us to the airport and it wasn't just any taxi! We thought it would be a city taxi car but they might have a company that they use. The taxi was really a delightful gentleman with a Mercedes Benz that was decked out. He was so much fun, drove incredibly fast, and got us to the airport. The price was the same as a regular taxi and we had so much fun that we tipped him 20 euros. I would recommend this hotel to everyone!

The hotel is around 10-15 minutes walk from the Termini station. Good if you are travelling in the summer morning as the weather is cool and the walking was not that difficult even with huge luggages. Watch out if you arrive in the afternoon like I did, as the 15 minutes walk seemed forever!

The hotel is located in a building with lift but you have to walk a few steps (like 10) to reach the lift. The owner is nice and very helpful in giving instructions around the city. There is a super cheap supermarket and local bakery and eateries nearby. It's also close to pizza and ice-cream places rated top at tripadvisor!

However if you are a metro person, don't stay at this hotel as it's far away from the metro. There is a bus stop around the corner of the block tho which takes you to most places within half an hour. Walking to the spanish steps takes 20-25 minutes (slightly uphill and downhill).

The room itself has an en-suite bathroom with shower and a fridge (a huge plus especially it's so hot and dry in the summer). The bed is ok and the blanket is a bit on the thin side. That matches with the air-con which isn't very strong, but it's ok as the summer is chilly at night and you can still sleep well without the air-con.

Overall an excellent value hotel. Totally satisfied with the EUR58 per night I paid. Would definitely stay at this hotel again when I come back!

Hello,
Hotel Versailles staff thanks you very much for your nice review and we all are happy to know you had a beautiful time in Rome and at the Versailles.
Just one thing in case you'll be back, the metro station Castro Pretorio is only 400 metres from the hotel but we usually suggest to go around taking one of the 20 bus line few steps from us because taking the metro means not being able to see around you. Rome is a historical city and in every corner there could be something to be seen and busses helps to see what under the ground you coulden't!!
We hope to see you again in Rome and wish you a Great 2014!

This was not a hotel with the typical meaning of the word. It consisists of two floors in an old building. Rooms were modern decorated and the staff was friendly, especialy their map of Rome was very useful. Across the hotel there were a number of bus stops with good city center connections. A good stay in Rome.

Hello Ant7676,
Thank you so much for your kind feedback.
Hotel Versailles is one of that 75% hotels in Rome that are part of building.
Hotel Versailles is a small family run structure in the city center, part of a historical building coming from XVIII century.
We all wish you a Great 2014 and hope to see you again!

Well, where can I start, what a lovely long weekend we had in Rome to celebrate our wedding anniversary belatedly. Right from the start everything went smoothly. I prebooked onto the SITBUS shuttle online, this was a 16 euro return altogether for the two of us. These buses stop right outside arrivals at the middle Bus Stop of 3, which helps if you arrive at night in rain, also it would seem that the Ciampino Airport promote these Shuttle Services, rather than herd tourists off into extortionate taxis when they arrive. The Taxi Park is placed well enough away from the terminal should someone want to use one though. The staff who represent the bus companies are also helpful as well in getting you on the right bus and their English is good. I would highly recommend SITBUS as their buses appear to be less crowded and the queues are minimal at the Bus Stop as opposed to the Terravision Shuttle Service at the stop next door. Both Bus Companies charge the same though, 4 euro per person one way to Rome's Central Bus and Train Termini Station. Once at the Station you can either walk, if you're brave, to Hotel Versailles, around 15 minutes, or catch a Taxi at between 10 and 12 Euro's.

As other reviews have said on here, the hotel can be a little difficult to find, blink and you miss it, but once in the door downstairs you walk towards the left and then up a couple of steps to the first floor where you will be greeted by a very obliging and helpful Signor Roberto on Reception. He will get you checked in and ensure you are fully versed on the different bus and train services to use in Rome for various attractions, where to eat nearby, and ensure that you take a free street map of Rome to guide you, this became our bible for the 2 and a half days we were there. The Hotel itself is very modern, clean and tidy, and all you need to spend a relaxing weekend or few days in Rome. Roberto is very good with his English, I wish my Italian was as good as his English, and the Cleaning staff try their hardest to help where possible, with the little English that they speak. The Room also was quite pleasant and comfortable, towels changed daily, bed made, and room given a light clean around everyday. Breakfast is not served at the Hotel, but there is a Bakery next door where they serve Hot Paninis with various fillings at a reasonable price, the girls who work there don't speak English, but they try their hardest to serve you and get you what you want. The surrounding area of the hotel appeared to be quite an exclusive neighbourhood of Rome on the outskirts of the city, away from the tourists, but close enough to access the heart of Rome with a bus ride of around 15 minutes. If you don't fancy venturing into the heart of the city and have a bit of buck to spend there is the famous Rinascente Italian Department Store a few doors up from the Hotel, and an array of Restaurants and Cafe Eateries catering for locals around the Hotel. One Restaurant and quite trendy place we ate at twice during our stay was Mokarabia, a couple of doors up from the hotel. This place unfortunately doesn't have very good write up's on here, but we thought it was a good place to eat serving Roman Cuisine and fairly reasonably priced and the staff try hard to make you at home and explain to you the dishes that they do, maybe it changed hands recently? I had the Saltinbocca (Veal with Sage and Proscuitto) twice, I recommend this dish, I also tried a bit of my wife's Roman Burger Meal, this was good value for money for what you got as well. They also have a highly recommended Gelateria next door on here, belonging to them, L'Caruso, the Ice Cream there is homemade and very nice also.

For High Street Shopping in Rome it seems to be concentrated along the Via Del Corso a long road running off of the Coliseum area. Behind Via Del Corso you have the Trevi Fountain and going further up the road away from the Coliseum the Spanish Steps, where there is a Metro Station. I was quite surprised for a capital city how Shopping is not Rome's strongpoint compared to other cities in Italy such as Bologna, where there appears to be no end of High Street Shops.

Overall a good break in Rome, highly recommended, you'll want to go again, which is not often something that can be said of a visit to Italy.
