“great feedback to the great hotel”
Reviewed 3 July 2012

Il Romitello is an awesome option for tourists who rent a car and sightsee Italy and Rome by car, coz you have free parking on-site. Spacious and neat rooms, nutritious breakfast (you would have fruit, corn, cheese, ham, beverages etc), that is great if you remember how low costs are, free wi-fi is a great advantage for travellers too. Nice calm and picturesque neighborhood of hotel surronded by fir trees, with small groceries, frutterias and pizzerias though rather far from the center, so if you are going by car, it is highly recommended hotel for you. a piece of real Italy to my mind. my wife and i really liked it

Very clean and basic but reasonable place to stay in Rome, especially if you have a car. Our rental was a brand new Peugot and I was very comfortable leaving it at the Hotel behind walls and gates with no charge. The traffic noise does eventually die down at night. The included breakfast was more than adequate. No air conditioning, so I would not advise staying there after maybe mid-June until it starts cooling down toward Fall if heat intolerance is a problem for you. Our roll-up shutters didn't work. The shower stall is amazingly small (I didn't think that anyone could make them that small) so if you are a large person, in either width or height, expect this to be a problem. This Hotel is really out-of-the way. Our TomTom programmed in Italian managed to get us there but some of the one ways had been switched so getting there was interesting. The grounds are beautiful with flowers and trees. There is a wonderful Pizzeria just about 100 yards down the hill from the front gate. The food there is reasonable and excellent. Overall, a good value if you are on a budget.

I stayed at the Romitello as part of a group of pilgrims for a canonisation ceremony in Rome. We were very well taken care of during our weeklong stay, and José, the house manager, went to great lengths to see that all our needs were taken care of, even driving me to the local hospital during the night with a sick fellow traveller! On the night of the canonisation ceremony, the Romitello staff put on a special cocktail hour in the gardens, all lit by candlelight. The rooms were comfortable and we enjoyed the freedom to roam the grounds after dark, safe from the bustling streets beyond the walls. Breakfasts were simple, as is the Italian custom, but there was a good variety available. The evening meal was very welcome after a long day of visiting in the Holy City, both abundant and delicious. I surely gained a few pounds on this trip! Try the local white wine with your meal, as you will both please your hosts and discover the rich flavours of the Roman hillsides' vintages!
Although the Romitello is not geographically close to the city centre, the trip into town is not long and can easily be managed by public transport. They also have a parking area within the compound should you have your own vehicle.
A small internet room is available to guests just off the dining room, and for those who need to thank God for another beautiful day in Rome, the Sisters' chapel is not far away.
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Romitello and have since recommended it to all my friends and family planning a stay in Rome.

For someone who have never set foot in Rome before, finding the place was nothing short of miraculous as it is far away from the train station or the ancient Rome site. We finally learn how to get there through help from the tour operators near the train station.

The place was situated in the suburban outskirts of Rome. From Colosseum, for instance, you will have to take the train all the way to its end at Battistini and then take bus 998 or 997 for another 9 stops, then walk for another 5 min to reach the place. Location was terrible.

The first impression I got when I arrived there was that the place is more like a service apartment rather than a hotel. The room is not big, but generally acceptable. Toilet was a bit old fashioned but adequate. For the price we are paying, I suppose I cannot complain.

The staff were helpful and excellent. in fact. They even assisted me to check-out at 4am, and arrange for transportation to airport with another guest.

They have wifi on public areas. But the router obviously cannot reach to our room, so you see some guests in the lobby just to get to the internet.

If you are budget-conscious and looking for cheap place to crash at night, this place is worth considering. But if you can spare more for accommodation, try look for some place closer to the attractions such as Colosseum, The Vatican or shopping district such as Via Del Corso.

We were at romitello for 3 nights in january. Our room was acceptably clean and quiet, but it had a strong smell of cigarettes, even if they say it's a no-smoking hotel. The heating was on only few hours in the evening and so it wasn't very warm. Breakfast was ok, simple but enough. The staff was really friendly and helpful and the parking was free - great!!
At the beginning it was not so easy to reach the bus stop from the hotel because the map they gave us didn't show correctly where and which bus to take for the city center. We "learnt" it by ourselves, after different trials and errors :-))
Anyway, in our opinion the price/quality ratio is extremely good for rome.

The hotel is in a quiet area, with a beautiful garden where you can see a hedgehog in the evening if you are lucky (we were in one night). The rooms are basic, but they are very clean.

Breakfast is also simple, food is the same each day. Still, there are enough things so you don't get bored in 4-5 days. And the old lady taking care of the food and plates is so careful, it seemed like she was in her own home, checking all the time that everything was in order.

A plus is the large private parking, perfect for people coming with cars or motorcycles. Gates are closed at night, so you can sleep without worries.

The only negative thing is the location, actually the connections with the public transportation. I think we never managed to get faster than 40 minutes to the center. If you have a car, you can try to go with the car to the closest metro station. That way, you will probably save around 20-30 minutes.
