Ok hotel 10 min tube ride from town centrePosted Jul 18, 2014
Pros: The staff were pleasant and helpful. It was in a fairly nice area, we felt safe walking around late at night.
Cons: Decor needs updating, move the smoking area to somewhere else, more coat hangers, the breakfast needs to be kept cold (cheese, meats, yoghurts).
Hotel was fairly easy to find from Tiburtina train station. Once we got there we had a warm welcome and were shown to our room. The toilet was constantly flushing, so they moved us to another room which was virtually next door to the Reception, so we could hear everything going on. The room was fairly clean but much smaller than I had anticipated from the photos. The flooring was rubber, which didn't feel nice to walk on barefoot. We only had 2 coat hangers in the wardrobe and when we asked for more we got 2 extras, not really enough for 2 people with clothes for 5 days. We couldn't open our window out on to the courtyard as that was the much used smoking area - thank heavens for the air con unit! Breakfast was a bit rubbish, 1 kind of cheese, 2 kinds of meat, average bread, warm yoghurts, coffee, tea and juice. The walk to the nearest tube (Barberini) was about 15 mins and was ok, as you go past a lovely bar/restaurant called Momart - good drinks prices and very good evening buffet.

Pleasant stayPosted Sep 8, 2013
Pros: Good value for what I paid.
Hotel was clean and staff very friendly and helpful. They assisted us with a map direction and booking a tour to the Vatican. Conveniently located close to bus stop and within walking distance to the train station. Located in a quiet neighborhood with restaurants and fruit stalls, ice-cream shops etc. The only thing is that the hotel is not within walking distance to the historic sights, but easy to get to by train or bus. Would stay there again.

Get what you pay.Posted Aug 8, 2013
Pros: Staff & management were always helpful. Management with good English command. Flight check-in/print out can be done @ the counter.
Cons: distance bus stops, taxis unaware location. No tea / coffee making facility in room. over 60's taxi expenses. For youngsters no lime-lights.
Location: nice small not so expensive general stores & pizzaria. Usually quite so needs to explore. Un-usual opening hours of shops. People are laid-back.
Lack of information in room regarding local area, wi-fi, hotel operator or any room service available. Could do with small kettle for tea/coffee. Machine tea, cups too small and expensive.limited choice of breakfast. Buses too far to walk with laugage. Nice local resturant. Few handy local shops and caffeteria to explore. Friendly staff and management. Shower room wooden frame work poor.

Not Ideal for Disabled Travelers, Far from VaticanPosted Nov 2, 2012
Pros: staff was nice but request for ground floor room not accomodated.
Cons: no elevator, no empathy for disabled travelers
Location: quite far from Vatican, taxi is very expensive.
When I booked with expedia I requested a hotel close to Vatican Prati., and a hotel that has a lift/elevator as I explained my mother was in a wheelchair. They said it had a lift. Only to find out that there was no elevator but the room assigned to us for our 6 nites was on the third floor. After 2 nites on the third floor we were transferred to the second floor. Still about 24 steps very steep. It was way very far from vatican as whatever you saved on the hotel rates the cost of the taxi going back and forth was very expensive. Not ideal if you are travelling with a disabled person.

OsimarPosted Aug 17, 2012
Osimar Hotel is hard to find. Osimar Hotel website does not give you a clear instruction to get to the hotel from the airport. The website says they are close to Roma Tiburtina station but apparently not. It is about 20 to 30 min walk. As soon as we got to Tiburtina station we ask around to figure out how to get to the hotel and nobody seems to know where it is at. One person told me to go back to Termini which im glad we didnt do or it would have been even more impossible to find the hotel. I would recommend calling them first the day before your reservation to get a clear direction to the hotel. The hotel is about 15 to 20 min to Bologna Metro train station, which will take you to pretty much all the tourist attractions in Rome. Osimar is in the outskirts of rome. it is about 20 min to the Vatican and about 10 to 15 to the Colloseum. Breakfast was provided but not the greatest. They have about 3 different kinds of bread, one kind of cereal, ham, cheese and some spread. The coffee machine does not work and their coffee taste like mud. There are restaurants around the hotel which is nice and there is a convenient store if you want to buy some stuff. Overall it is ok but would have prefer something closer to the city attraction and train station.
Great value for RomePosted May 8, 2012 on Hotels.com
The staff was excellent helping us with parking, information on getting to the Metro and medical clinic. The room was comfortable, clean (a few marks on the lower walls from luggage) and quiet. It's a bit odd that the air conditioning is controlled from the front desk but no problem. Breakfast was very adequate with lots of choices. In a few minutes walk, we were at the Metro. The bus into the center of Rome is only one block away. A really great hotel for the price.

Not too bad, not too great. Fair.Posted Apr 20, 2012
Pros: English staff, breakfast, clean sheets, cheap rates
Cons: Dim room, pushed together beds
Location: Too far from the metro and bus, for older people anyway.
I brought my mom and fiance, along with another friend and his wife to this hotel. We travelled from Vicenza via the autostrada to Rome, which is about 5 hours. The traffic as insane and this hotel has very little parking.. so don't drive! It is reasonably close to the metro, if you don't mind walking about 20-30 minutes and are capable of reading a map. I'm sure you can find better, and closer to the metro, or bus line. This one seemed out of the way in the ghetto a bit. Doesn't usually worry me, but travelling with a few new to Europe.. probably not the best option. The price was reasonable for 2 nights, and the beds are a problem as they push 2 full sized to make one 'queen' size. But besides that, the room was comfortable for the little time we spent in it, and the staff spoke english and are polite. The breakfast was every morning and is included, so they serve cold cuts, muffins, and croissants with nutella. Along with cafe and other drinks, in a section off from the front desk. They do make you leave your key at the desk when you head into the city, which is kind of nice because it prevents you from losing it. At all accounts, it was fair and easy.

Very helpful staffPosted Nov 16, 2011
Location: the area closer to the vatican
The staff was very helpful in guiding us to transportations options, showing us the stops for the metro and bus lines,,,writing the numbers down for the bus and it was thoughtful that they let me use their computer to get a message out and agreed to take messages for me
