Hotel Centrale
Ranked #551 of 1,271 Hotels in Rome
Reviewed 9 August 2014

Room was very small, almost hard to turn around inside. Toilet was also very small but everything worked. With that said, location, cleanliness and friendly staff makes this hotel recommended. 4 stars should be valued within the Hotel class which I guess is budget.
Location is really nice, close to most attractions. Breakfast isn't much but enough to get one out of the door.
Recommended.

this hotel is in a great location in Rome, It is near the Spanish steps and great shopping. Across the street is a great gelato store with homemade gelato and next door to that is a pizza/sandwich café that is authentic and awesome, not to mention very enexpensive. I enjoyed my stay there and the service was very Italian.

The hotel is in a very old building but all the fixtures were very up to date. We loved the location near the Spanish Steps and shopping. The hotel personnel were very friendly and helpful. We stayed here for three nights and our only complaint was the very very small bathroom. The free breakfast was European and was good. It is a very Italian hotel and that was what we were looking for.

Room Tip: The bathrooms are extremely small even by Rome standards.

We just came back from an awesome cruise and stay in Rome. We stayed in Rome for 3 nights at Hotel Centrale. The location was perfect! Close to Flaminio Metro Station and Piazza del Popolo and also great shopping. Our room was small, but very clean. The breakfast was delicious. The front desk staff was great, especially Yacobo. He was extremely friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay again at Hotel Centrale.

I had a small amount of money stole from the room but ignored this; I put my UK sterling in the safe till the end of the trip. The money was stolen, I questioned the staff and was told “we trust out staff, you've made a mistake". I'm home now, but contacting the Rome Police just to make them aware in case it happens again. Maybe then someone will take it a bit more serious.

Dear customer, the day after your departure you sent us an email asking you to verify the presence in the safe in your room for 92 pounds sterling. We quickly checked in both safe and all the furniture in your room, which fortunately had not been rented for the night next to your departure, but without finding anything. Even the waitress who has arranged the room after your departure has been requested, but she confirmed that the safe was empty. This maid is working with us since 2008 and we have never had negative reports from any customers. Customers often forget we have values ​​or objects, everything is cataloged, customers are immediately notified and the goods are returned by the postal service at the customer's expense. This we could answer, and we are at the disposal of police for further clarification. Perhaps before leaving a bad review without certain items, you could wait for a response from the police of Rome, to which you have rightly asked for clarity.
For the safety of our clients and their assets, we have a system of cameras which controls 24/24 all the corridors and stairs, we are very sorry for your inconvenience, but we did everything in our power to help you.

We spent 2 days at Hotel Centrale before going to Tuscany for the rest of our trip. The location in Rome is great! It is easy to get to all the attractions we wanted to visit by foot or using the Roma Pass. The facilities are clean, well kept and the staff is wonderful. David saw to our every request with courtesy and punctuality. The only concern is the size of the rooms. We are American and expected a larger room. We adapted reasonably well, but if the stay had been for a much longer time, I suspect the size might have become something of an issue. The included breakfast was very good and our reservations were easy to make before leaving arriving in Rome. A very nice touch by David was providing a bottle of wine as a gift for my wife on her birthday that was on the last day we stayed at the hotel.
Over all the only concern was the size of the room for an extended stay.

We spent 4 days at Hotel Centrale, an older style hotel in a wonderful location with Via Del Corso on your doorstep.
The concierge staff, especially David & Franco, were incredibly friendly & helpful & were kind enough to assist us with some tour bookings & offer plenty of advice & tips.
Our room was tiny, even by European standards & not much room to move once luggage & the 2 of us entered the room, but functional, clean & comfortable. if you were planning on spending a bit of downtime in your room I would reccommend upgrading to a larger size.
Breakfast was basic but fine to start the day with cereal, yoghurt, pastries, tea, coffee etc
The location is fantastic Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps & Piazza Navona all a very easy 10-15 minute stroll. We were able to walk everywhere, even to the Colosseum & Vatican City. The only public transport we needed was a quick (roughly 10€) taxi to Termini train station.
There is a convenience, takeaway pizza & gelato store right outside the hotel door on Via Laurina & of course plenty of restaurants & shopping.
Overall a no frills, basic hotel that was clean, functional & well located.

Room Tip: Our room on the 3rd floor was hot & stuffy, a bit too noisy to sleep with the window open
