Great location and great staff!

Posted Jan 27, 2015
Pros: Location, Staff, Ambiance...it was wonderful to not be in a cookie cutter chain hotel. We felt we were experiencing a more authentic side of Rome.
Cons: The shower stall was small, making showers a little difficult for my husband who is 6'4".
Location: Perfect! Ten minute walk to Colosseum, National Museum, Capitoline Museum, Doria Pamphilj Gallery, many churches, eateries, shops, pub. transport, etc
This hotel's staff was always pleasant and very helpful. All spoke English. The breakfast had plenty to choose from and we always left feeling full. The room was clean and quiet with its own bathroom. Public transportation is very close by. We were also within a ten minute walk to many sights and churches, including the Colosseum and St. Peter in Chains. The neighborhood is a mix of tourists and locals with an amazing number of restaurants, cafes and gelatto shops all charging a slightly lower price than nearby more "touristy" neighborhoods. There are also many shopping areas within a short radius of the hotel.

Hotel in terrible condition, a total rip off

Posted Jan 6, 2015
Pros: The only thing we actually liked about this hotel was the location. Short walking distance to the Forum, Colliseum, etc.
Cons: EVERYTHING!
We booked a quadruple room for Dec. 31-Jan.3 a few months ahead of time. We paid almost $1,000.00 for 3 nights. The room included breakfast and free wifi. The pictures and reviews on the internet looked good and the location was great so I thought it would be worth the price. We checked in and were put in a room above the 4th floor. We had to go up to the 4th floor, go outside to a terrace that is currently being used as a construction storage place, and go up 2 flights of metal, rickety stairs to our room. The room had an old keyhole that you can see through, no heat (the temperatures were down to freezing at night), no wifi, dirty walls and floors, a tiny, barely usable bathroom, old worn beds with ancient comforters and windows with only curtain rods and no curtains. The windows whistled because they weren't sealed and no light could come in because they'd been shuttered over. They had a space heater in the room that helped some with the cold but lighted up the entire room so we couldn't sleep with it on. I asked the hotel for different rooms and they weren't able to accommodate us until the 2nd day with only 1 double room. So half of us had to stay in this awful room. They didn't give us any discounts besides not charging us the $36 Euro tax at the end of our stay. They clearly took advantage of us during a busy time in Rome when we couldn't just leave to find somewhere else to stay. The room they moved 2 of us into was better than this other one but definitely

Great Family stay!

Posted Nov 2, 2014
Pros: Great location, friendly staff, good room with terrace, sweet croissants!
Cons: kettle in room
Location: 10 mins from colosseum, beautiful churches, good shops and restaurants. Not noisy, highly recommended.
Wonderful location, able to walk and explore easily, kids really enjoyed their time here, lovely gelaterie and snack bars nearby. Hotel staff very friendly and helpful when planning what to do. The taxi pick-up was great, as arrived late, got to see some of the landmarks at night-added bonus!

Freundliches Hotel in sehr schöner Lage

Posted Oct 28, 2014
Pros: Die Lage und die freundliche Atmosphäre.
Cons: Bleiben Sie bei der bewährten Form des einfachen Frühstücksbuffets!
Location: Sehr zentral in der Via del Boschetto, Kultur betrachten, aber auch das italienische Leben genießen.
Das kleine Hotel liegt in einer romantischen Gasse des Monti-Viertels. Die meisten bekannten touristischen Ziele sind zu Fuß erreichbar. Viele kleine Läden und Restaurants sind in der Nähe. Das Hotelpersonal ist sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Etwas merkwürdig und bürokratisch fanden wir das Bestellen des Frühstücks. Rundum war es eine sehr schöne Woche. Wir kommen bestimmt wieder.

tolles Hotel in der City!

Posted Oct 27, 2014
Pros: Tolle Restaurantempfehlung für den Abend. Gute Auskunft in Verbindung mit einer Zugverbindung von Rom nach Campobasso.
Wir waren vom 03.08. bis 06.08. im Hotel Grifo! Wir waren zuerst etwas skeptisch weil unser Zimmer im Gebäude gegenüber lag, aber es war alles super. Ruhig gelegenes Hotel mitten in Rom, tolles Frühstück, sehr guter Service an der Rezeption. Was uns besonders gefallen hat waren die vielen Sprachen die das Rezeptionspersonal sprach.

Great hotel in oldest part of rome

Posted Oct 5, 2014
Pros: The staff were charming and saved us lots of money with their help and advice
Cons: It is a very old building so not every room is the same. It is comparatively quiet situation.
Location: The colosseum, Roman fort are one end of the street and Trevi Fountain Panteon etc are not far the other way!
Great place to stay. Very quirky. Staff very friendly and full of excellent advice. Within easy reach of all the main sites and lots of good restaurants close by. Would recommend it.
