Nice hotel, not too far away from busy crowdsPosted Jul 21, 2014
Pros: Nice location away from mad tourist areas and good, helpful, friendly staff.
The hotel has a nice option of a kitchen if you want to do self-catering. The location is good if you want to be out of the main tourist areas and see a bit more of local Roman life. The rooms also have their own terraces too, which is nice for relaxing and eating out. The breakfast arrangement where you go to a local cafe/ restaurant is fine - it's not a full buffet breakfast but enough to get you going. You'll need to consider transport to the hotel if you're in the city centre doing tourist things - the metro isn't always convenient to get to in the city centre so often buses are a much quicker way of getting to Testaccio.

To be fair, for Rome, it's not a bad hotel. It's a combination extended stay/short term lease and quick-turn hotel property. The first problem was the lack of cleanliness. The shower walls and floor had hair all over them, lots of mold/mildew buildup, and other hints throughout the bathroom of apathy towards cleanliness. No matter the rate you're paying, if the bathroom makes you feel uncomfortable, it's never worth it. Some of the rooms have pass-through doors to adjacent rooms, as ours did, but saying they don't seal well would be like saying the Titanic sprung a small leak. At 2:00am when the neighbor came home, the light coming through the closed and locked door was enough to wake us up, even if we couldn't hear every word he spoke -- which we could. It didn't get truly awful until he started smoking though, and our "non-smoking" room became literally filled with a fog of second-hand smoke. Now, I'm a seasoned traveler, and have spent enough time in Italy to understand the pervasiveness of smoking. But when I pay for a non-smoking room, I don't expect to actually see smoke in the room while I'm occupying it. At that hour and with the language and cultural barriers it made no sense to try to do anything about it, considering we had to be out of the room by 6:00am for a flight. So again, in fairness, we didn't give the hotel an opportunity to correct any of these problems.

Nice concept for a hotel....terrible management.Posted Sep 16, 2013
Pros: Hotel staff, Liliana and Gabriel were great, convenient location, safe neighborhood ( for us, three guys), breakfast was always delivered on time.
Cons: The desk person is pretty much the manager, maid, maintenance and security of this hotel, no printer to give you a receipt.
Location: Hotel is close to the Massimo station and the coliseum maybe a mile walk, plenty of places to eat.
We arrived at the hotel at least 4 hours before check in time, the person at the desk, Gabriel was very pleasant and polite, he ensured us that checking in early was not a problem if the room was ready, the room was not but it took only 15 to 20 min. for them to prepare it for us, that was nice, the hotel itself is nice and modern. over all we were very pleased with the staff attitude and willingness to help and provide customer service but the policies of management is what will kill any good experience with Re Testa. First, the desk person does everything, there are no maintenance staff and the two maids we saw were not very good at cleaning, hotel is modern but needs improvement, the little kitchen area is a good idea but the materials they used were cheap and do not last, giving the area a dirty look, the WIFI is not GOOD!!!!, we stayed in room 11 for four nights and we had to seat by the front desk to receive a decent connection, rooms are OK, but the maids do not do a good job cleaning, I was able to see the dirt inside the toilet bowl, dirt of months not of one day, AC worked fine, we didn't complaint to the desk clerk because we knew there was nothing she or he would be able to do to help, I saw a guest yelling like crazy at Liliana about something wrong with the room and she was visibly frustrated with it but there was no manager there to respond for the problem, we always left the room after breakfast and returned around 9 pm to take a shower and go to bed.

Contemporary hotel, great for value!Posted Mar 4, 2013
Pros: Big big window and balcony
Cons: Thin wall
Location: Very interesting location, with a modern art museum next to the hotel. Lots of bars and restaurants, very lively at night. Market below the hotel.
The hotel is modern and also simple. The design is great especially large wall window with balcony, you do not get that unless it's an expensive hotel. Really great for value. Staffs were all helpful, really pleased with the stay. I will definitely come back!

modern hotelPosted Dec 5, 2012
Pros: modern building, newly completed
Location: see above. within walking distance of the metro. Great location for restaurants, great farmers market next door to the hotel
Only complaint would be the location - one side of the hotel was along a street. We stayed for 6 nights, and were awakened several times by loud talking outside our room throughout the night (we were on the second floor)
