Our second stay at 47 and it was just as good.very friendly and helpful staff. The food and service in the Rooftop Restaurant is superb. This is a hotel to be recommended for its facilities and for the area.

Nice hotel, close to the major sites.

Posted Nov 6, 2014
Pros: Location, clean, friendly. easy access to airport and rail station.
Cons: Breakfast could be improved.
Location: Near Trestevere - good restaurants and nightlife. Good access to Pantheon, Colosseum, Roman Forum, Victor Emmanuel monument, Spanish Steps,
Good, friendly hotel, within walking distance of Rome's major tourist attractions. Good areas to eat in Trestevere. within 10 minutes of hotel. Take a bus, or walk to Vatican and St Peters. Excellent friendly staff, who answered all our questions and met our demands. Breakfast is typical Europe, but we've had better.

Good hotel in good location

Posted Nov 3, 2014
Pros: Modern, clean, lovely courtyard area. Excellent spacious shower.
Cons: Refreshments in room
Location: Hotel was good and within walking distance of the Colosseum and shopping area
Hotel was good and within walking distance of the Colosseum. However there were a few disappointments, the coffee making did not work, the in room tea and coffee was not replaced after use and breakfast in the room was 45 minutes late on the first day.

Very central, very clean, very noisy!

Posted Nov 2, 2014
The hotel is good, the staff was really nice and helpful and quite knowledgeable about the area and sites to visit, the room was of a good size and very clean. However, there's nothing worse than hearing the whole plumbing system of the room next door and to add insult to injury there was a constant moving of furniture (early in morning) in the room above ours. Needless to say, my sleep wasn't exactly restful. Thankfully we only stayed for one night.

Awesome Hotel

Posted Nov 1, 2014
Great location. Walking distance to most of the major sites. The room was very nice, the daily breakfast buffet (included), very good, and the staff was amazing! They were so friendly and helpful and accommodating. We will definitely return to Rome, and wouldn't even consider staying anywhere else.

Exceeded expectations.

Posted Nov 1, 2014
Pros: Really helpful staff. Top location. Modern chic.
Cons: Wouldn't change a thing. Top hotel, top trip.
Location: Everything in Rome is within walking distance(if you like walking and we do....) so this place is perfect.
Walked to the hotel from Termini(45 mins or so) and had a great intro to what Rome offers. Staff at the hotel gave us great tips about where to go -from the essential tourist stuff to some top eateries over the river. The hotel is in a brilliant location so we walked everywhere, it's on the same street as the church with the lion mouth from Roman Holiday (that trip advisor obsessives find hard to locate...) and a few other rarely seen bits of Roman history that become your own. Great room(there are water pipe and footstep noises but red wine assisted sleeps sorts all inner city noises) with comfy bed, big bathroom & shower, decent wifi, obligatory slippers and dressing gowns, great coffee machine and a fine breakfast.

Good quality hotel - shame about the issues

Posted Oct 31, 2014
Pros: Plus points are the location (except for the road), the cleanliness of the hotel and the young man at breakfast - very courteous and efficient
Cons: Heating and soundproofing
Location: Great location near Forum and Colleseum but on a very busy main cobbled road so lots of traffic noise
The hotel presents itself well. Most of the reception staff were welcoming and efficient. The rooms were spacious although we did have to change rooms to get what we had requested on booking. The hotel is on an extremely busy road so, unless you're used to a lot of traffic noise, then you may have trouble at night. The soundproofing between rooms is really poor - not at all what you would expect from a modern purpose built 4 star. We could hear every noise from both sides - and I mean every noise from bathroom habits to the fact that one set of neighbours talked all night and we could hear every word. This meant that we didn't get a good nights sleep any of the four nights we stayed. The roof terrace restaurant was pleasant but oh so very cold. We asked for the heating to be put on but eventually had to give in and go and get our coats from the room. An expensive dining experience marred by the extremely cold environment - I can't remember the last time I had to put on my coat just to enjoy dinner! We also tried to sit in the lounge and play cards one evening but had to retreat to one of our rooms just to get warm and the weather was mild Plus points are the location (except for the road), the cleanliness of the hotel and the young man at breakfast - very courteous and efficient, shame the same couldn't be said for one of the breakfast team who had to be asked for the same thing 3 times before she grudgingly gave us some milk for our tea

Center of Rome

Posted Oct 25, 2014
Pros: Location, staff members
Cons: Ironing boards in the rooms, more hangers
Location: Walking distance to Coliseum, trajans column, palatine hill, forum. No more than 20 minutes on a slow pace
an excellent hotel in the center of Rome. Walking distance to most of the attractions such as the coliseum, trajans column....etc. My wife and I stayed for a week and what really made our stay was the staff of the hotel. They were very polite, friendly and went out of their way to help you with anything you needed. We arrived early (9am) for our check-in (2pm) and staff stored our luggage in a seperate room while we explored Rome and when we did check-in, our luggage was already in our room. I needed an outlet adapter for my computer charge plug and they were able to find one a few days later. Breakfast was good, more than continental, but a little less than a full american style breakfast , but, hey it's Rome, your not there for the breakfast. I would definitely recommend the hotel for the location, staff and cleanliness. But they do need an ironing board in the rooms.

Convenient city centre hotel, close to attractions

Posted Oct 25, 2014
Pros: The proximity to attractions. We walked everywhere; Vatican 45 mins, Villa Borghese 45 mins, Baths of Carracalla 30mins. Bus stops close too.
Cons: The provision of self-service tea/coffee at breakfast and the provision of kettle etc in the room.
Location: Go to Trastevere, just over the bridge and take a right, to eat. Sit outside one of the many restaurants/bars and people-watch on a balmy evening.
Had a very pleasant stay at 47. Five nights in a clean comfortable room at the end of five very tiring days. The staff were very friendly at all times and the concierge made sure we knew exactly where to go and how best to get there. Breakfasts were perfectly adequate though a self-service tea/coffee station would have been a bonus. The room was very quiet despite being on a busy road, provided you closed the external shutter which was an excellent sound barrier. We didn't use the restaurant on the roof as the hotel is very close to Trastevere, the 'foody' area, which has many good-value restaurants. We did use the rooftop bar in the evenings for pre-dinner drinks as it was lovely over-looking the temple ruins and church bell-tower.
