Nice place with some let downs on the service

Posted Aug 7, 2013 on Hotels.com
The place was accommodating for a family - a good place to sleep. Be weary of the pictures in the hotel profile, they are a mix of several rooms and we ended up with one of the more outdated ones. Overall the place is convenient to some of the older ruins in Rome, but a long hike from the Vatican and other areas. I would stay there again if it was not for the service. I gave a service of 1 only because 0 was not available. We ended up waiting out in front of the apartment in 90 degree whether with our luggage for an hour and a half. We even called two days in advance to let them know what time we would be arriving. Once there, the rental attendant wouldn't help with our luggage stating he had a broken foot as he bounded up the stairs like a Gazelle. Breakfast was cold Croissants hanging in a bag on the door handle...nothing more than that. Not sure what the other reviewers were eating, but it was not the same this time around (July 2013). It does have a kitchen and a working stove, so better if you bring your own breakfast (you won't find anyone serving breakfast in Rome!). Again, place is comfortable and good for larger parties...the service manager/attendant can really bring this business down.

Fabulous place but bed is very firm

Posted Feb 15, 2012
Pros: Location, plenty of space (We booked a double superior but were given the double deluxe room with sofa), hot shower, pleasant and helpful staff
Cons: very firm bed
Location: A stones throw from the ancient city. Good local restaurants and easy access to the centre of Rome. Approx 15 min walk from rail Termini
Fabulous location, lovely room and helpful staff but bed is very firm. Breakfast is something and nothing but there is a useful minibar/fridge and many local shops/bars if you prefer something more substantial. Espresso machine also provided with unlimited refills. If you are happy with a firm bed then I would absolutely recommend the Fori Imperiali, however if you require a softer bed for a good nights sleep you may prefer to look elsewhere. Remember to phone ahead when you arrive at the airport and pick up a tourist map if you don't have one - the hotel is easy enough to find if you follow the instructions provided - look for the restaurant directly opposite (well worth eating there but book in advance as very popular). Be aware that there are a couple of flights of stairs to reach the room.

Fantastic place to stay. Wonderful stay, Wonderful staff, Wonderful location.

This was the best stay I could hope for. The room picture was exactly as pictured online so we knew just what to expect. The staff member we dealt with, Bernardo, was incredibly helpful, informative, and friendly. The room was comfortable and clean and the breakfast was great as well. By far the greatest thing about this place though was the location. You step out the door into this classic european cobblestone street, turn left, and you're staring at roman ruins. A brief short 5 minute walk and you're staring at the Colosseum where there is a convenient subway station stop to get around the town with. We couldn't have been happier with our stay and the price was incredible for what it afforded us at the Relais Fori Imperiali. The only bit of advice I would have for someone is to pay attention to the emails they send you and not ignore them like I did. I was supposed to call them when we arrived in Rome so we could be let into our room because they might not be on the premises at the time you get there. This lead to a bit of confusion that was only my own fault.
