The hotel is located within a brief walk of the Marconi metro station (5 stops from Colosseo, 7 from Termini). Combined metro/bus tickets cost the equivalent of 6EUR/day, the trains are frequent and take less than 15 minutes to Termini, the main central railway.
This meant that the hotel was away from the tourist areas while being within very easy reach. A similar quality hotel in the city centre would be considerably more expensive. Check-in was straightforward with a small lobby and an adjacent bar which has a great informal lounge area. There is also a very pleasant local cafe between the hotel and the metro.
My room was 506 - which was not a great choice if cat-swinging was on your list of priorities - it really was quite narrow. That said, looking at the plan of the floor, it was the smallest room by some way so probably not typical. It had the benefit of a small balcony which would be pleasant in summer. The terrace on this floor also has an outdoor jacuzzi for guests. The room had an shower in the bathroom which was clean but compact. There was also a Satellite LCD TV with a variety of international news channels, a safe and a minibar fridge. Despite it's size, the room was perfectly adequate for my needs and I had a restful sleep each night. Room service is available with a 6 EUR surcharge.
Breakfast is one floor below the entrance, with the usual continental variety. The hotel was not full and so it was relatively quiet. The surroundings were comfortable and the service unobtrusive. The bar in the evening served typical local food and was a good place to relax with a final glass of wine. The barman in particular was the stand-out member of staff in the hotel. There was a reasonably equipped gym on the same level as the breakfast room. Check-out was quick and easy and they happily held my bag in safe custody.
Overall, this is a little gem of a hotel within easy reach of the tourist areas. It's quiet and unpretentious but has everything you need - it's easy to relax in and the wi-fi connection is reliable and most importantly, free. It would definitely be my first choice on a return to Rome - which is certain to be soon...
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Hotel Pulitzer has 83 double rooms including 1 junior suite. The style is chic & glamour due to the use of luxury materials and finishes, starting from the flooring in Wenge coloured wood that matches the colour of the fabrics and furnishings ranging from white to black, and taking in shades of brown to create a warm, welcoming and cozy atmosphere. The bathrooms of the rooms are a modern interpretation of the 1920s New York style using small ceramic tiles, in this case in black, which go well with the Wenge wood flooring and the contemporary style sanitary fixtures. ... more less
