Hotel Latinum
Ranked #577 of 1,271 Hotels in Rome
Reviewed 30 September 2013

This is a lovely hotel to base in for Rome, a quick taxi ride from Termini and close to the underground stations.

Rooms are well appointed, clean and modern. Breakfast is slightly disappointing, you have to queue for a table and it doesn't have the best assortment!

Apart from that it's great.

We stayed at Hotel Latinum for 3 nights whilst we explored Rome. The room was a very good size for a city hotel (No:11) with a lovely bathroom (although the shower rose could do with a little de-scaling to make changing easier between fine and deluge states!). The staff were absolutely excellent and nothing was too much trouble from directions to storing our bags (we arrived early on the first day and left late on the fourth day). The roof top terrace was nice to watch the traffic from (quite a Rome "sport"). Near the tram lines and on a roundabout so a little noisy but not too bad at night. All the known sights were walking distance (Coliseum 30 minutes) if you are keen walkers like us (and you see so much more!) but trams and buses are nearby. Breakfast was good and meant we didn't need to stop for lunch (although we did - well Italian food!). Lovely hotel ideal for a short break - I would recommend.

Room Tip: Side rooms and higher up would be best!

We stayed in Hotel Latinum for two nights whilst exploring Rome, and really enjoyed our stay. The staff were remarkably helpful and gave advice on visiting Rome. The bedroom was very modern and pleasant, though we found the bed a bit too firm for us. Air-con worked beautifully and was a relief after the humidity when we visited. Bathroom was very modern and relatively spacious.

the hotel is situated on a very busy junction, which can mean it's quite noisy even at night, but does mean its only few meters from the tram stop. We walked to the Termi a couple time which took us about 25mins, so only recommended for keen walkers, and not recommended for ladies on thier own at night as some of the area is a little bit rougher.

Breakfast was pretty good, and the hotel will let you leave your bags with them for free the morning you check out if you still want to see more sights.

Stayed here for one night with friends. You need a taxi or tram to reach the hotel from the Termini. The hotel faces a bury traffic junction and in the day-time is a hive of activity during the day but dead as a Dodo at night. I did not feel comfortable walking in this area at night.
The hotel is quite small and lacks atmosphere. Breakfast is typical ‘continental style’ and there is not much choice. The dining area is very small seating only 10 people and is like eating in church, everyone was very quiet and self conscious that they would be overheard by the rest of the guests.
I can find nothing bad to say about this hotel and the most positive thing was the reception staff who were very helpful and tried to make the stay enjoyable.

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper ask for a room at the back of the hotel

Just returned from a very pleasant stay here and must say the staff really are an asset to the hotel. Always smiling, willing to help and advise on getting around and what's the best transport made our visit to Rome much easier.

Our room was a good size for a city centre hotel, with a lovely clean bathroom and good shower. Some other reviews have mentioned the hotel is noisy during the night, however although it is in a busy location, we didn't hear any traffic at all and aren't sure whether this is down to double or triple glazing, or the position of our room (ask for room 22 if you want the same quiet experience).

The only thing that affected sleep quality slightly was that the bed was very hard, a better mattress should be invested in.

Some other small niggles in the room were that furniture wasn't hoovered behind, leaving some areas slightly dusty and an old grape was found behind the bedside cabinet when moving it to plug in a phone charger, and the hair dryer is really poor, I'd take my own if staying again.

Breakfast was ok but the narrow selection became tiresome after a couple of days, more choice would have been appreciated, but again seeing the same friendly faces each morning was reassuring, the staff do seem to genuinely care about the hotel.

These minor issues are by no means a complaint as this otherwise represented an enjoyable stay which represented good value for money. I'd recommend to others and would certainly stay again.

This beautiful boutique hotel is located at the entrance to Ancient Rome and is perfect if you're spending a few days in the city. Easy to access from the centre and Termini by bus, Metro or Tram right to the hotel door. We were in Rome in early August amongst thousands of other tourists and unknown to us at the time of booking, this hotel provided a respite from the hoards of people. Although the room was smaller that we had expected, it was modern and suited our every need. The staff are particularly friendly, helpful and speak good English. The wifi however is not free and the 'continental' breakfast described on the hotel's website is not exactly appetising nor vast, but that was hardly a downside to the lovely stay we had at this hotel.
