Nice Hotel close to major SitesPosted Aug 8, 2013
Pros: This Hotel is located in an ideal location. It is walking distance to the Colosseum, train station and many other sites including shopping.
Cons: The only down side was the tiny bathroom and elevator.
Location: There are many site located near the hotel. The Colosseum, train station, Forum, and many others.
We had a great time in Rome. The Hotel was very clean and Hotel staff was excellent. It was quiet with restaurants just steps away.

nice hotel for visitingPosted Jun 8, 2013
Good hotel for visiting, everything is close. But bed is a little bit hard and you can hear if someone talk louder outside off the room. And the staff is very friendly.

Good location!!!Posted Apr 29, 2013 on Hotels.com
We stayed for 2 nights overall and the location was perfect for us. No parking, but easy to find on the streets. Small Hotel but just ok. We can ear the other persons talking in the other room, but overall it was a good quality and price deal. Everything we needed was provided and the service at front desk was perfect, very kind and patient! When you walk out of the Hotel you can see the Coliseum at the end of the street and that makes it magical!

Would definitely go back!Posted Dec 1, 2011
I have to say that I loved this hotel, staff was great, why? They let me borrow a power adapter at no charge, and since they didn't have change, they gave me a call and the internet usage for free, also they were very nice and helpful too. The place was next to the Garibaldi Plaza which has bars around, which is the place were the students of the Pisa University hang and walking distance from the Pisa Central Station and the Tower Monument, I mean a 10 minute walk max, but is by the river too which is a beautiful scenery. The hotels itself, was very clean, is more like a classic style, maintain that way, which makes it interesting, the floors, decoration, architecture all classic, even the door locks. My only cons I had to share the shower (but was a one room, one person at the time shower, not a open shower), the bed was cheap, so a bit uncomfortable, TV didn't work and didn't have internet in the room, had to come down to the lobby. Other than that I think I made a good choice staying here and I would do it again if I go back.

Location great, everything else was notPosted Apr 28, 2011
If you decide to stay at the Anfiteatro Flavio, call ahead to be sure your room is in the hotel's main building. The first night of our stay, we were placed one of the three rooms they keep in a building across the street. The entrance stank of sewage and the room was filthy (carpet covered in hair and dirt, mold growing in the corners of the walls, mildewy shower). We were also concerned about the security of the place since the doors to the entrance as well as the rooms were basically hollow, cheap laminate and there was no staff on-site in this across-the-street location. We asked to move to the main building and were able to be moved over for our second and third night of our stay. The cleanliness and security of the new room was an improvement, but still left much to be desired. Some of the staff members were friendly and helpful, but most were not. In the end, the only good thing I have to say about Anfiteatro Flavio is that the location was perfect for seeing Rome's big sights. Otherwise we stayed away from the hotel as much as possible.

Amazing location, adequate for short stay.Posted Mar 20, 2011
The hotel was as expected from previous customer feedback. The hotel was relatively easy to find, and the room was just like photos displayed here. I understand that previous comments about hard bed, hassle of having to get to a room on the opposite side of the road and others, but as I had read the comments, it was what I expected. Staff could be a little bit more friendlier, though acceptable. They didn't always have the same person at the desk so it was awkward leaving the key behind while we went out. Breakfast was ok, just the usual food items. Amazing location for visiting the main tourist attractions, especially the view down the street straight to the Colosseum. I would recommend this hotel if you're not a fussy person and only for a short trip in Rome.

Great location but not what we expectedPosted Sep 29, 2010
When we booked our hotel here we did so for the location of the Coliseum. If you are looking for a hotel within walking distance, this is the place for you. When you walk outside & look down the street, there it is. It's absolutely gorgeous! When we checked in the staff was very friendly, helpful & and spoke english very well. However, when it came time to go to our hotel room we had to go across the street. I thought nothing of this until we entered our room. It looked nothing like the picture on their site. It was much smaller & had none of the decor we were expecting. It was just a crammed small. It had everything we needed such as a private bath & a double sized bed. But until this room I had never seen a bathroom that had the sink & shower on one side of the room & the toilet on the other side of the room. The A/C worked fine & so did the tv. It satisfied everything we asked for, we just would have preferred more space. I'm sure the rooms on the same side of the street as check-in looked like the pictures, ours simply did not & it was not what we were expecting. The staff once again was great.

Good HotelPosted Sep 29, 2010
This hotel is good value for money, the location was fine for exploring the city, only a 5 minute walk to the colosseum which can be seen at the end of the road. It took us just over an hour to leisurely walk to the vatican city, spotting other places of interest on the way. On arrival the hotel staff were very friendly and provided us with an excellent map. Our room was fine, what you'd expect for a 3*. I would recommend this hotel.
