“Nice suprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 October 2013

Being on a budget and afraid of what we might have gotten ourselves into we were pleasantly surprised by our choice of Hotel Tuscolana. Clean modern room with everything that was promised. The staff was fabulous! Francesco was above helpful. Our arrival by train was a little frustrating plus jet lag we were tired. Francesco made us truly feel welcome and was ready to help our every need. We loved it there and hope to return

Room Tip: Ask for room off the first floor.

Dear Guest,
first of all thanks to have been our guest. The breakfast is homemade and the hot drinks are served at the table upon request. The Hotel Tuscolana is situated in a really good area, less than 100 meters from the underground that connect the city center in less than 10 minutes. The Hotel is well equipped and recently renovated with all comfort like air conditioner and free wi fi connection. All the staff is well trained to give to you all the information to live Rome in a good way and many thanks for the compliment. I hope that you can come back as soon as you can.
Best Regards

What a great experience, the reviews were all they were meant out to be. Francesco was so accommodating when we got there after a long flight from LA. The rooms are super clean and bathrooms totally redone. The breakfast in the morning is a great bonus and the free wifi is an added bonus, was able to call family back home on Skype with ease.

The hotel is 5 mins walk from the subway station which takes you to all the main sites in Rome, we couldn't be happier with our stay

We (4 amateur cyclists) spent a weekend in Rome to ride the Granfondo Roma cycling race.

Arriving at a hotel as a group with bikes in massive bags tends to provoke a luke-warm to sometimes hostile welcome by hotel staff, not so at Hotel Tuscolana where the staff could not have been friendlier and more helpful - from offering to hep us carry our bags up the stairs, to giving useful tips and letting us have breakfast a little earlier than official breakfast time on race day.

I have been to many hotels in Italy before, but have never felt so welcome. All the staff from the front desk to the breakfast room and cleaners were super friendly.

The hotel also checks all the necessary boxes: The rooms were clean and comfortable, modern bathroom, breakfast included in room rate and free wifi.

I would compare this to staying in a Red Roof in America. Room is adequate size and we had no trouble moving around with two suitcases in tow. Air Conditioning worked great. Only two complaints I have about the room 1). The Bed was too firm and I could not adjust to it and 2). The shower leaks all over the floor unless you have the door closed perfectly. Free WIFI is offered but it only seemed to work in the lobby area. Breakfast is decent enough. The front desk staff are very helpful with calling for transport and directions. Subway station is a five minute walk from the hotel and it only was a 10 minute ride to the main attractions. Very easy to get around once you get your bearings. We stayed for 2 nights and I would use this hotel again . Why pay more to stay in the center of Rome when it is only a short subway ride away!

If you are looking for the chain hotel experience with the businessman's facilities then don't head for the Tuscolana. If however you want a genuine welcome, friendly staff and a taste of local hospitality with good comfortable rooms all of which is kept spotlessly clean then the Tuscolana could be the hotel for you in Rome. This is one of the nicest and most helpful places I have stayed - nothing was too much trouble for the team and everything was well organised. The hotel is not in the centre of the city but that is in many ways an advantage - the airport is an easy 30 minute train ride and the metro takes just a few minutes into the centre and all the sights. There are good local restaurants with no tourists in them and the whole experience for a short trip to Rome was fantastic. Why can't more hotels be like this?

Room Tip: If you are not a city person ask for a room facing away from the Via Tuscolana - they are all double...

I just returned from a 4 night stay at the Hotel Tuscolana. On arrival I was greeted by 2 people on reception, both were welcoming and made the Check In /Check out Fast and Simple.

I was given 2 remotes 1 for TV and 1 for Air Con (all included in price), I was also give a map with the main attractions circled and how to get to them and also advice on the local area where to eat Ect… .
The room was clean and quite adequate for our stay, the room had a double bed (very comfortable) and the bathroom was clean and had a good shower, the room was cleaned every day and used towels were replaced with fresh clean ones, the room had a mini fridge and a SAFE (which I couldn’t get to work).

Breakfast was good with a selection of cereals/cold meats/cheese/fruit/freshly baked pastries and tea & coffee, the lady who worked behind the breakfast bar was very helpful and did her job well. You pick your table and bring up your plate and you help yourself to what is available and your hot drinks are brought to your table.

The location of the hotel (even tho it's situated outside of the city) was extremely convenient 3/5 minute walk to the Underground/Metro (Ponte Lungo Metro Station which is on the A lines) you come out of Metro station and head down Via Gela until you reach Via Tuscolana, cross the street there and turn left and the hotel is situated just up on the RHS.

From the airport (FCO) you can get the FR1 train (8 Euros) heading towards ORTE and it is 9 stops to Roma Tuscolana (it maybe a bit slower but it is the most direct way) From the platform you walk down a ramp onto Via Tuscolana (there is a kiosk at end of ramp) and turn right and head under bridge until you reach hotel 2 blocks on RHS.

The area is quiet and safe, it is within walking distance to local shops (mini mart down beside train station) and restaurants and you can easily walk to some of the main attractions, Re Di Roma and San Giovanni (both on Metro line A) are near by and have some more shops in that area.

So overall I was very pleased with this hotel and will stay here when I am in Rome again.

I and my husband stayed in this hotel for 4 nights.
The hotel is in a quite area - Via Tuscolana . It is away from the hustle bustle of all the touristy areas yet very well connected- hardly 5 min walking distance from Tuscolana Station & Ponte Lungo Metro. From Fiumicino airport - Tuscolana station is 30 min by train & 8 euro per person. Nearest Metro station is Ponte Lungo - Termini is 5 stops away & takes 8 - 10 min to reach termini
People at the Hotel reception were extremely helpful & guided us well. Breakfast is very good & the cappuccino - mind blowing. Loved our stay here.
Will definitely recommend to my folks planing a visit to rome

Room Tip: If you dont have too much luggage with you - the small double room is decent enough for a stay.
